U.S. Moves Warship to Confront Iran Near Yemen

Move to stop Houthis from receiving surface-to-air missiles

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | April 20, 2015


The U.S. Navy is sending the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt to the waters near Yemen in response to reported arms deliveries to Houthis rebels by Iran.

The warships are prepared to block Iran from reaching the impoverished country located on the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula.

Last week Iran reportedly dispatched an armada of seven to nine ships to Yemen. U.S. defense officials characterized the mission as an effort to arm the Houthis.

In January Houthi rebels seized the presidential palace in the capital, Sana’a, and ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who is supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia. In March, Saudi Arabia and its Gulf emirate allies began conducting airstrikes against the Houthis.

On Saturday Iran deemed accusations leveled by Saudi Arabia that it is arming the Shia rebels as “ridiculous.”

Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi countered by saying Saudi Arabia is using U.S. weapons in airstrikes against the rebels.

“We’re assisting the Saudis to protect their own territory and to conduct operations that are designed to lead ultimately to a political settlement to Yemen,” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said on Thursday.

“We have seen evidence that the Iranians are supplying weapons and other armed support to the Houthis in Yemen,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded when asked about the naval maneuvers. “That support will only contribute to greater violence in that country. These are exactly the kind of destabilizing activities that we have in mind when we raise concerns about Iran’s destabilizing activities in the Middle East.”

The U.S. wants to prevent the Houthis from receiving game-changing weapons such as surface-to-air missiles to challenge the Saudi bombing offensive.

Earlier this month U.S. naval forces in the Red Sea searched a Panamanian-flagged ship but did not find munitions.

Seventeen Things You Can Count On When Jade Helm 15 Goes Live

Common Sense Show – by Dave Hodges

America is already under martial law. Jade Helm 15 will not bring martial law to America, it is already here, as this article will make clear. Jade Helm 15 is the manifestation of martial law. At minimum, this drill is the practice run for the implementation for the 17 principles associated with martial law. In the worst case scenario, this drill will go live and all 17 martial law principles, already in place, will go live as well.  

Seventeen Martial Law Characteristics

Most experts agree that hard core martial law contains the following 17 essential elements. This article discusses where America is at with regard to the 17 categories.

1-Mass Roundups of Political Dissidents

Yes x      No           

Jade Helm 15 provides for the extraction of political dissidents. JH 15, as evidenced by the Ft. Lauderdale photos and videos was clearly an “extraction of political dissidents drill”.

 

In some ways, JH 15 is an extension of an obscure program that is still in place and it is known as Plan C.  According to documents recently released to MuckRock, Plan C was a 1956 plan designed to arrest 13,000 subversives along with foreign diplomats if the cold war should go hot.

At some point, Plan C gave way to what is referred to as Main Core. Wikipedia describes Main Core as a massive database, which began in the 1980s by the federal government. The program consists of the gathering of personal and financial data of millions of U.S. citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data primarily originates with the NSA and the FBI, CIA, and alphabet soup agencies. The program grew to unprecedented levels following 9/11 and the implementation of the Patriot Acts I and II. The data is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database’s name is derived from the fact that it contains “copies of the ‘main core’ or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community”. Today, we know from insider sources, that the creation of the “Red List” comes from this program. The Red List is a compilation of names deemed to be the potential leadership of any dissident movement. The program refers to dissidents as “Favorites” and they AND their close associates are targeted for elimination with extreme prejudice PRIOR to the implementation of martial law. There will be more on executions later in the article. From the best available information, this is precisely what JH 15 is preparing for.

 

2-Dusk to dawn curfews

Yes x      No

 

Every martial law extraction drill and subsequent mass roundups contain dusk to dawn curfews. Simply put, the establishment does not want to permit the dissidents to meet and plan under the cover of darkness. More importantly, when the round ups start, the authorities need to know where to find their targets of interest.

 

3-Rationing of essential resources

Yes x      No 

4-The seizing of personal assets (e.g.) food and water

Yes x      No

5-Control over all food and water

Yes x      No

In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security. Population was mandated to be reduced in the LDC’s. THIS PROGRAM COULD JUST AS EASILY BE TURNED ON AMERICANS AND THE FOLLOWing DATA STRONGLY SUGGESTS THAT THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED!

With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 13603 states:

  1. e)  “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption.  “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.

(f)  “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer…”

This unconstitutional EO is particularly disturbing in that it clearly states that the government has control over anything that is “capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals…”  If you thought that you and Fido were going to get through the coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.

How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic President or the next power-hungry President? Obama has set himself to be the modern day Stalin in which he would use food as a weapon to force compliance upon the American people just as Stalin did to the people of Ukraine.

 

6-The prohibition of weapons of any kind including guns, knives or chemicals which can be turned into explosives

Yes       No___In Progress   x

Despite all the rhetoric with regard to gun control, Obama has been able to surprisingly put very little into law. He has banned certain AR-15 ammunition by administrative fiat, but he has made negligible progress toward getting the guns out of American hands. It is likely that Obama, once martial law has been officially implemented, will declare that any possession of guns will be a felony and all that do not turn in their guns will be guilty of a felony and sent to prison without any due process.

There is however, one very concerning act that involved the Secretary of State, John Kerry, and President Obama and that would be the illegal and unconstitutional signing of the UN Small Arms Treaty which effectively bans all private ownership of guns. There is one provision in the treaty that has received absolutely no attention in our mainstream media and that is the section having to do with confiscation:

State parties to the ATT “may seek assistance” in implementing the Treaty. The ATT indicates that a voluntary trust fund was established to promote the establishment of a multinational gun confiscation program.

I have learned the JH 15 will also use its “mutli-national” partners in the drill. Therefore, it is difficult to believe that gun confiscation is not on the list of activities for JH 15.

 

7-The confiscation of property, homes and businesses

Yes x      No

8-Arrests without due process

Yes x      No

9-Massive “papers please” checkpoints with intrusive searches

Yes x      No

All across the country, the MERS theft, by the mega banks (e.g. Bank of America, Wells Fargo) has increased through the “assistance” of a very favorable set of judicial rulings which allows the banks to steal the homes of Americans without so much as a mortgage note. In many states, these proceedings can take place without even setting foot inside of a courtroom. The estimated number of American households who have been victimized by MERS is estimated at 13 million (Personal communication and radio appearance disclosure on The Common Sense Show by Dave Kreiger, the author of Clouded Titles).

The most obvious statement in this article is to declare that the Obama administration has the authority to arbitrarily arrest American citizens, detain them indefinitely, and do whatever they please with these individuals.  I am referring to the National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA) which granted the federal government to play judge, jury and executioner. The day the NDAA passed Congress, that was the day that the Constitution was declared “Dead on Arrival”.

The government has moved to a “Papers Please” society with the implementation of the REAL ID which is a document which contains highly personal information and will soon store everything about you including your financial information. Beginning later this year and extending into 2016, the public will not be able to travel, even within the United States, or operate a motor vehicle without this document. This is ultimate in Big Brother surveillance and control.

 

10-Forced relocation

Yes x      No

11-Forced conscription into various labor camps and even into the military

Yes x      No

FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF) states when families are transported to the I/R camps, husbands will be segregated from wives and children from parents.

“Detainees may also be segregated by ethnic and family groups and further segregated to protect vulnerable individuals. Additionally, detainees may be categorized by behavior (cooperative, neutral, or combative) to accurately resource guards and facilities”. Juveniles within the I/R population are typically segregated from the general population. (See DODD 3115.09.)

Does this sound like forced relocation to you. If the government wasn’t planning to carry out this action, then why would they grant themselves the authority to do so?

All of the following references to EO 13603 are verbatim copy and paste of the referenced PDF file entitled, Executive Order 13603.

PART VIII—GENERAL PROVISIONS

Sec. 801Definitions. In addition to the definitions in section 702 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2152, the following definitions apply throughout this order:

(a) ‘‘Civil transportation’’ includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities. ‘‘Civil transportation’’ also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership. ‘‘Civil transportation’’ shall not include transportation owned or controlled by the Department of Defense, use of petroleum and gas pipelines, and coal slurry and pipelines used only to supply energy production facilities directly.

The above effectively restricts movement of all goods, services and people.

AGENCIES CONCERNED WITH INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT 

1-40. External involvement in I/R missions is a fact of life for military police organizations. Some government and government-sponsored entities that may be involved in I/R missions include—

International agencies.

International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

International Organization of Migration.

U.S. agencies.

Local U.S. embassy.

Department of Homeland Security.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Again from Executive Order 13603, Section 502 provides for the introduction of slave labor to America.

Sec. 502.  Consultants.  The head of each agency otherwise delegated functions under this order is delegated the authority of the President under sections 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation and to employ experts, consultants, or organizations.  The authority delegated by this section may not be redelegated.

This means that Obama, and his fellow communists, can seize any resource, property, or person at any time for any reason, including being able to force that person to perform assigned labor without being paid.

There is only ONE word for forced, “uncompensated employment”. That word is slavery. Congratulations President Obama, you have effectively repealed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

 

12-Outlawing of free speech

Yes x      No

13-Control of the media

Yes x      No

14- Massive surveillance programs and snitch programs

Yes x      No

15-The total control or elimination of religion

Yes x      No

 

The Net Neutrality Act implemented by administrative fiat by the FCC has given the government complete power over all media and ultimately all free speech.

Religion is in grave danger in this administration and the regulations of the Clergy Response Team clearly shows the intent of the federal government. At the time of citizen roundups, the decision has been made to eliminate Christianity as a viable and legal practice as evidenced by the revelations of Pastor Walt Mansfield who provided me with the details in an exclusive interview following his training with the Clergy Response Team. It is highly recommended that you read this article as it details that FEMA camps are real, the Pastor’s role in helping to maintain order within a FEMA camp and the fact that Christianity will not be allowed. Further, Pastor Mansfield revealed that Clergy Response Team pastors are required to spy on those that they minister to. Finally, Mansfield revealed that reading from the Bible is expressly forbidden because Christianity is a form of persecution.

16-Executions without due process of law

Yes x      No

17-Total suspension of the Constitution

Yes x      No

When Executive Order 13603 and the NDAA were allowed to stand, this effectively destroyed the Constitution and they made all civil liberties to be null and void.

Most Americans do not realize that executions without due process of law have already been carried out against American citizens. The primary targeted individual, Anwar al-Awlaki, was a radical Muslim cleric whom U.S. officials said was involved in planning Al Qaeda operations and terror attacks. Besides al-Awlaki, Samir Khan, Jude Kennan Mohammed and Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki, were executed by drones according to Attorney General Holder. The precedent has been set and Holder declared the authority to carry out unwarranted executions. These were American citizens who were executed without being afforded the due process of law. Either our laws apply to everyone, or they apply to nobody. 

Conclusion

Jade Helm 15 is not the problem, it is the manifestation of the problem. And what is the problem? How can anyone look at the 17 points raised in this article and not conclude that we are already under martial law and are awaiting our final disposition? Jade Helm 15 might just be that final disposition, and if it is not JH 15, it will be something like it right on its heels.

Finally, when martial law and these 17 points are realized, there will be an international flavor to the process and this will be the topic of a future article.

British govt warns superbug epidemic could wipe out 80,000

A new generation of superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics could eventually kill tens of thousands of people

by RT | April 7, 2015


A new generation of superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics could eventually kill tens of thousands of people, with many of the deaths related to illnesses as common as the flu or routine surgery, a new government report warns.

Medical professionals are increasingly concerned about new strains of bacteria and viruses that are categorized as antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which render obsolete many antibiotics and antiviral medications largely taken for granted today in hospitals and medical facilities worldwide.

Up to 80,000 people in Britain could perish in the event of a superbug outbreak, while an even higher amount of deaths could occur from other forms of antimicrobial resistant infection, according to data contained in the National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies report, which was compiled by the Cabinet Office.

“The numbers of infections complicated by AMR are expected to increase markedly over the next 20 years. If a widespread outbreak were to occur, we could expect around 200,000 people to be affected by a bacterial blood infection that could not be treated effectively with existing drugs, and around 80,000 of these people might die,” it said.

According to the document, in the event of drug resistant pathogens, “even minor surgery and routine operations could become high-risk procedures, leading to increased duration of illness and ultimately premature mortality.” Such a development would be a real setback for modern medicine, as medical breakthroughs (the report specifically mentioned organ transplantation, bowel surgery and some cancer treatments) may become unsafe due to the risk of infection.

In a separate section, the rise of influenza pandemics – such as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), which broke out in Asia in 2002 and posed a global health threat – were predicted to become “more serious” without effective medication and treatment.

One of the very disturbing possible consequences of such a pandemic is that “half the UK population [could] potentially [be] infected, with between 20,000 and 750,000 additional deaths potentially by its end,” it said.

Perhaps it’s not surprising that the report classified pandemic influenza as the highest risk civil emergency facing Britain, apart from terrorist attacks.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron said last July that the rise of superbugs could see the medical community and those who depend on it for treatment “cast back into the dark ages of medicine.”

Super bugs are already responsible for the death of some 50,000 people a year in the United States and Europe, the report revealed. Meanwhile, medical officials have warned that one strain of E.coli (potentially deadly bacteria found in the environment, foods, and intestines of people and animals), is no longer controllable by drugs.

The report echoes the findings by Jim O’Neill, who was appointed last July by Cameron to lead an international commission to investigate global antimicrobial resistance. He predicted, in a reportreleased last December, a global death toll of 10 million people a year by 2050 unless a new generation of drugs is developed.

Analysts are advising doctors to prescribe fewer antibiotics to their patients, in the hope of keeping at bay certain bugs from becoming resilient to medication and mutating into superbugs.

Coach loses his job after posting an open letter about Obama on Facebook

A Maine lacrosse coach lost his job when he posted a letter on Facebook criticizing President Obama

by Bizpac Review | Steve Berman | April 7, 2015


Maine lacrosse coach lost his job when he posted a letter on Facebook criticizing President Obama with an unflattering–but accurate–description of America’s Muslim heritage.

Scott Lee told The Conway Daily Sun last month he is a politically minded conservative.  “I thought it was an interesting letter to President Obama and his current administration who are not paying attention to Israel and focusing on Iran,” he said.

Lee, 48, coached the boys lacrosse team at Fryeburg Academy, a private “independent secondary school that serves a widely diverse population of local day students and boarding students from across the nation and around the world,” according to the school’s website, which notes the school was incorporated in 1792.

The newspaper reported that Lee said he shared the letter on his personal Facebook page on March 17, and resigned two days later.

He said that Athletic Director Sue Thurston told him told him a decision to fire him had already been made before he had a chance to meet with the school officials.

Fryeburg Academy Head of Schools Erin Mayo said, “We prize each young person we enroll as an individual, and we prize the diversity that they bring.”

She said teachers need to live up to the school’s mission statement, “We strive to create a supportive school environment that promotes respect, tolerance, and cooperation, and prepares students for responsible citizenship.”

Lee said he is not a bigot, and even invited a Muslim former student to stay at his home for nine days.

“I never saw him as a bigot,” Mohammed Islam told the newspaper in a phone interview.  “I don’t agree with Scott’s opinion, but that doesn’t make him a bigot.”

The letter questions the “rich heritage” of Muslims in America, and reads in part:

Dear Mr. Obama:

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?

Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?

Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?

Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?

Have you seen Muslims shak[ing] hands with Muslim Girl Scouts?

Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?

Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life????

The answer is no, you have not.  Just ask yourself WHY???

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?  If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.

No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.  Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.  To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America…

The EMP Threat: All It Would Take Is A Couple Of Explosions To Send America Back To The 1800s

Our entire way of life can be ended in a single day

by Michael Snyder | Economic Collapse | April 7, 2015


Our entire way of life can be ended in a single day.  And it wouldn’t even take a nuclear war to do it.  All it would take for a rogue nation or terror organization to bring us to our knees is the explosion of a couple well-placed nuclear devices high up in our atmosphere.  The resulting electromagnetic pulses would fry electronics from coast to coast.  Of course this could also be accomplished without any attack.  Scientists tell us that massive solar storms have hit our planet before, and that it is inevitable that there will be more in the future.  As you will read about below, the most recent example of this was “the Carrington Event” in 1859.  If a similar burst from the sun hit us today, experts tell us that life in America could suddenly resemble life in the 1800s, and the economic damage caused could potentially be in the trillions of dollars.  This is one of the greatest potential threats that we are facing as a nation, and yet Barack Obama has essentially done nothing to get us prepared.

The technology necessary to conduct such an electromagnetic pulse attack against the United States has become much more accessible in recent years.  According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, even rogue nations such as North Korea and Iran either already have or will soon have the capability to hurt us in this way…

Rogue nations such as North Korea (and possibly Iran) will soon match Russia and China and have the primary ingredients for an EMP attack: simple ballistic missiles such as Scuds that could be launched from a freighter near our shores; space-launch vehicles able to loft low-earth-orbit satellites; and simple low-yield nuclear weapons that can generate gamma rays and fireballs.

If a successful, large scale EMP attack ever did take place, it would be a catastrophe beyond anything that the United States has ever seen before.  The EMP Commission, which was established by Congress, says that it is likely that most of us would end up dead

What would a successful EMP attack look like? The EMP Commission, in 2008, estimated that within 12 months of a nationwide blackout, up to 90% of the U.S. population could possibly perish from starvation, disease and societal breakdown.

In 2009 the congressional Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United States, whose co-chairmen were former Secretaries of Defense William Perry and James Schlesinger, concurred with the findings of the EMP Commission and urged immediate action to protect the electric grid. Studies by the National Academy of Sciences, the Department of Energy, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the National Intelligence Council reached similar conclusions.

If you are a terrorist, a dictator or a fanatic that is looking for a “killshot” for the United States, those kinds of numbers would certainly get your attention.

And it was recently reported by WND that the Iranian military has already been playing around with such a scenario…

Peter Vincent Pry, who is executive director of a congressional advisory group called the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, raised the alarm as the agreement is about to be finalized.

He said U.S. military officials have confirmed such an Iranian plan.

“Iranian military documents describe such a scenario – including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States,” Pry wrote in a recent column in Israel’s main online media network, Aruz Sheva.

“Iran with a small number of nuclear missiles can by EMP attack threaten the existence of modernity and be the death knell of Western principles of international law, humanism and freedom,” he said.

Very chilling stuff.

And of course there are many, many others out there that would love to see the U.S. taken down other than just the Iranians.

Meanwhile, our power grid is far more vulnerable than most Americans would dare to imagine.

In previous articles, I discussed a recent Federal Energy Regulatory Commission report which stated the following…

“Destroy nine interconnection substations and a transformer manufacturer and the entire United States grid would be down for at least 18 months, probably longer.”

Are you starting to get the picture?

Our entire way of life depends upon electricity.  If you take away that electricity, our society is transformed literally overnight.

A successful EMP would be an utter nightmare for this nation.  Just consider what U.S. Representative Scott Perry had to say about a potential attack last year

The consequences of such an attack could be catastrophic; all electronics, power systems, and information systems could be shut down,” Rep. Scott Perry said in prepared remarks during an EMP hearing in May held by the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. “This could then cascade into interdependent infrastructures such as water, gas, and telecommunications. While we understand this is an extreme case, we must always be prepared in case a rogue state decides to utilize this technology.”

In essence, suddenly nothing would work and just about everything that we take for granted would suddenly be gone.

In a previous article, I spelled out some of the implications of such an event…

-There would be no heat for your home.
-Water would no longer be pumped into most homes.
-Your computer would not work.
-There would be no Internet.
-Your phones would not work.
-There would be no television.
-There would be no radio.
-ATM machines would be shut down.
-There would be no banking.
-Your debit cards and credit cards would not work.
-Without electricity, most gas stations would not be functioning.
-Most people would be unable to do their jobs without electricity and employment would collapse.
-Commerce would be brought to a standstill.
-Hospitals would not be able to function normally.
-You would quickly start running out of medicine.
-All refrigeration would shut down and frozen foods in our homes and supermarkets would start to go bad.

And as I mentioned above, all of this can happen even without an attack.

A direct hit from a major solar storm can cause the exact same thing.

In fact, NASA says that there is a 12 percent chance that such a storm will hit us during the next ten years…

NASA is warning that there’s a 12 percent chance an extreme solar storm will hit Earth in the next decade, sending out massive shock waves that would knock out grids across the world.

The economic impact of this doomsday scenario could exceed $2 trillion — or 20 times the cost of Hurricane Katrina, according to the National Academy of Sciences.

In recent years, we have been really lucky.

There was a close call in 2012 and another one in 2013.

The following is an excerpt from an upcoming book that I have co-authored with Barbara Fix that will soon be published entitled “Get Prepared Now”…

Most people have absolutely no idea that the Earth barely missed being fried by a massive EMP burst from the sun in 2012 and in 2013. And earlier in 2014 there was another huge solar storm which would have caused tremendous damage if it had been directed at our planet. If any of those storms would have directly hit us, the result would have been catastrophic. Electrical transformers would have burst into flames, power grids would have gone down and much of our technology would have been fried. In essence, life as we know it would have ceased to exist – at least for a time. These kinds of solar storms have hit the Earth many times before, and experts tell us that it is inevitable that it will happen again. The most famous one happened in 1859, and was known as the Carrington Event. But other than the telegraph, humanity had very little dependence on technology at the time. If another Carrington Event happened today, it would be a complete and utter nightmare. A study by Lloyd’s of London has concluded that it would have taken a $2,600,000,000,000 chunk out of the global economy, and it would take up to a decade to repair the damage. Unfortunately, scientists insist that it is going to happen at some point. The only question is when.

So keep an eye on the sun.

The giant ball of fire that we revolve around has started to behave very erratically, and it has the power to end our way of life at any time.

In fact, scientists tell us that we are about to get hit with a “glancing blow” on April 7th…

A filament of magnetism stretching halfway across the sun erupted during the late hours of April 4th (22:00-23:00 UT). The eruption split the sun’s atmosphere, hurling a CME into space and creating a “canyon of fire,” shown in a movie recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory: The glowing walls of the canyon trace the original channel where the filament was suspended by magnetic forces above the sun’s surface. From end to end, the structure stretches more than 300,000 km–a real Grand Canyon.

Fragments of the exploding filament formed the core of a CME that raced away from the sun at approximately 900 km/s (2 million mph): image. Most of the CME will miss Earth, but not all. The cloud is expected to deliver a a glancing blow to our planet’s magnetic field could on April 7th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

The event of April 7th is not going to cause us major problems.  But someday there will be a solar storm that will.

Personally, I cannot even imagine what life would be like without electricity.

Because we have become so deeply dependent on technology, most of us would have absolutely no idea how to live without it.

An electromagnetic pulse attack would be one of the fastest ways to cripple America and end the dominance of the United States in world affairs.  And in this day and age, there are hundreds of millions of people around the planet that would love to see that happen.

So to not take steps to protect our power grid from such an attack is very foolish.  But that is precisely what Barack Obama (and presidents before him) have chosen to do.  We have technology which would mitigate the damage from an electromagnetic pulse, but rather than spend the money Obama has decided to just hope that it will never happen.

Up to this point, we have been fortunate.

But someday, our luck may run out.

Saudi Dictator, Killing Hundreds of Civilians with Support from Washington, moves to Gunning Down Domestic Anti-War Protesters

Five points on Saudi Arabia that “US officials and the establishment media are neglecting to talk about”

by Washington’s Blog | Robert Barsocchini | April 7, 2015


Five points on Saudi Arabia that “US officials and the establishment media are neglecting to talk about”:

1) Sharia Law runs the country.

2) Saudi Arabia is an authoritarian dictatorship: There are no national elections, no parties, and no rights.

3) People are publicly beheaded in the Kingdom.

4) Human rights for Saudi women are among the worst in the world.

5) The monarchy is a cash machine for terrorists.

(Chris Ernesto assembled and gives details on each point here.)

The Saudi dictatorship is the recipient of the biggest arms sale in US history, secured by Obama in 2010:

CNN, 2010: “U.S. plans $60B, 20-year arms deal with Saudi Arabia

And that did not include the nearly $1 billion worth of banned cluster bombs Obama sold to the Saudi dictator to help him stay in power:

Foreign Policy, 2013: “U.S. Shipping Thousands of Cluster Bombs to Saudis, Despite Global Ban

The massive influx of weaponry came after a US cable leaked in 2009 stated:

Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide…

According to Amnesty International, Saudi Arabia got more repressive under the previous dictator, who just died and was replaced by corrupt billionaire Salman bin Abdulaziz, who stands accused of personallysupporting al Qaeda (as many in the Saudi “royal” family and country in general are known by the US to do). Salman lashes writers and rape victims, publicly chops peoples’ heads off, and, coordinating with Washington, burns women and children alive in terrorist attacks that kill hundreds.

And now, the Saudi dictator is ordering his goons to open fire on Saudis protesting Salman and Washington’s illegal attack on Yemen:

Antiwar: “2 Killed, 30 Protesters Wounded as Saudi Forces Attack Antiwar Rally

(Washington also continues to back, for example, Israel and Egypt, each of which have recently massacred thousands.)

Washington is currently sanctioning almost thirty countries, including Venezuela (which has receivedover 8 million signatures on a petition condemning US aggression) and Iran. Venezuela is a democracy, and Iran, as noted by Newsweek, has (in the sense of elite-run countries such as the US or China) “democratic” institutions.  Saudi dictators laugh at such notions.

Neither a mystery nor an example of inconsistency, Washington massively supports the Saudi regime but sanctions and overthrows democracies and nominally democratic countries because Saudi Arabiacollaborates with Washington on what Washington, itself a brutal oligarchy that guns down around athousand of its own people per year (not to mention kills millions abroad), cares about.

Government-run animal control now kidnapping and murdering family pets in America if owners don’t pay ransom demands

(NaturalNews) As yet another sign of the emerging police state brutality taking place across America, government-run animal control “mafias” (i.e. your local animal control department) are now murdering family pets if those families don’t pay the ransom demands.

In essence, animal control departments are now running kidnap and ransom operations, holding family pets ransom for fines and fees that, if not paid, result in those family pets being murdered.

Don’t believe me? To my great surprise, this story comes from none other than CNN Money, which published this detailed report that outlines the animal murder operations taking place across America.

“In a number of cities across the country, animal control agencies are aggressively going after pet owners with big fines for small violations. Some hold people’s pets until they settle their bills, even if it means they end up killed,” report CNN Money authors Blake Ellis and Melanie Hicken. “Others leave the dogs alone but issue arrest warrants for owners who can’t pay up.”

This is REAL journalism, folks. And it’s happening at CNN!

Government-run family pet kidnap-and-murder operation

CNN Money goes on to report:

When owners of seized or lost dogs can’t afford to get their pets back, they relinquish their rights to the animal, which can result in a pet being euthanized. Meanwhile, a CNN Money analysis of active warrants from a sampling of 15 cities and counties across the country found thousands of outstanding warrants for small pet-related offenses.

Outraged pet owners and animal rights attorneys say these harsh tactics are all about generating money and unfairly impact low-income Americans.

Family dog kidnapped from a woman’s yard and held for ransom, then murdered by government thugs

As CNN Money reports, a California resident named Elizabeth Vasquez says two dogs were kidnapped from her back yard by animal control “officers.”

They fined her $500, and when she could only come up with half the cash, they murdered one of the two dogs.

“[A]nimal control killed Silver before she could scrape together enough cash to get the dog out, says Vasquez, who speaks only Spanish,” reports CNN.

It also turns out that the animal control mafia targets low-income neighborhoods where people often simply can’t afford the steep fines.

This woman had to pay $250 a week to hold her dog in a private facility while she awaits a jury trial after government thugs kidnapped it.

Sterilize, microchip and vaccinate your dogs or we will murder them

What most Americans don’t fully realize is that the animal control mafia not only has the authority to kidnap your dogs and hold them for ransom; they can also demand that you sterilize, microchip and vaccinate your dogs — or they will kill them!

“One pet owner was hit with this hefty fine [of $1,219] for failing to sterilize, vaccinate, microchip and license three dogs,” reports CNN Money.

Unbelievably, the animal control mafia has even been caught going door to door, issuing huge fines and citations without ever seeing the dogs in question! As CNN also reports:

Last year, Riverside County inspectors incited controversy for going door-to-door and giving out citations of up to $400 per dog in Indio’s low-income and mainly Hispanic neighborhoods. In some cases, they cited people for failing to have their pets licensed, sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped without even seeing the animals.

…”They are threatening people. They are intimidating people,” said Kim Maguire-Hardee, a local activist who runs a low-cost spay and neuter clinic.

Pay us $1,200 or we’ll murder your cat that we just kidnapped from your private property

In this outstanding example of real investigative journalism, CNN Money provides even more examples of government-run pet kidnapping, ransom and murder operations:

Colorado resident Caitlin McAdam’s dogs, Jake and Lucy, were seized from her home two months ago after they were accused of killing a neighbor’s cat.

Even though no evidence was provided that linked her dogs to the incident, McAdam was told that they could be killed if she didn’t pay $1,200 in upfront impound fees within 10 days.

In other words, the animal control mafia can literally kidnap your pets from your own private property, then hold them ransom while threatening to murder them if you don’t pay up.

In another case described by CNN Money, an 82-year-old woman was thrown in jail for two days after her dogs had gotten loose and disturbed some neighbors. She was threatened by the animal control mafia with a $7,000 fine and a year in jail. “A pro bono attorney helped her negotiate the $7,000 bill to around $500, which she paid with the help of her church and lawyer,” reports CNN Money.

The psychopathic government now sees the public as the enemy to be exploited for profit

What we’re seeing here is yet another example of a rogue, psychopathic government targeting the public with mafia-style tactics. This kidnap-ransom-murder operation happening with family pets is also reflected in the civil asset forfeiture operations where cops pull over innocent families and steal their cash, claiming, “If you are carrying cash, it must have been acquired through drug-related activity.”

The government in America today — both at the local and federal level — has become a shakedown mafia run by psychopaths, and because the government alone has the authority to kill your pets or imprison you, the public is totally at the mercy of this authoritarian (yet totally insane) system.

We’re also seeing runaway medical brutality reflected in many state-level vaccine mandate laws that will force pregnant women, children and even senior citizens to be vaccinated against their will, essentially at gunpoint. Vaccines are still formulated today with toxic substances such as mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum, MSG and antibiotics — all openly admitted by the CDC.

So what it’s all come down to now is that every level of government operates as a criminal mafia to achieve its desired aims: controlling your pets, controlling your children, injecting you with medical interventions that profit Big Pharma, or just brazenly stealing your cash during a “routine” Highway Patrol stop. This is America six years into the Obama administration and 14 years after Bush oversaw the passage of the Patriot Act police state infrastructure.

People demand liberty and freedom

No wonder more and more people are getting turned on to activists like Adam Kokesh, author of the book “FREEDOM!” Download the book PDF or MP3 audio files here.

No wonder Rand Paul is about to take the 2016 Presidential campaign by storm by promoting the fundamental principles of freedom, liberty, private property and freedom from government invasions of our homes, bodies and businesses.

No wonder websites like www.TheDailySheeple.com www.SteveQuayle.com www.TheLibertyMill.com and www.SGTreport.com are exploding in popularity. People are tired of living in a brutal police state where their children and family pets are simply not safe from government criminals!

Meanwhile, totally clueless and brainwashed masses continue to see any factual report on government brutality as being “anti-government.” Is it still anti-government to not want that government to kidnap and murder your family pet?

At what point will the sleepy-headed masses wake up and smell the tyranny? Or will they quietly and pathetically submit to the government murder of their own pets because it’s the “obedient” thing to do?
