2A or not 2A – Sorry, Bill Shakespeare

The Covid-19, a corona virus unknown until present, has taken up all the news of late.  As well it should.

The human race and our survival is suddenly at stake.  Our rights are suppressed.  Our freedoms, suppressed.  Some states are attempting to introduce more laws against guns, gun makers, ammo, restrictions on guns and on people owning those things.

Several groups, including the III% United Patriots – or 3UP, have been clamoring for “action” against the government apparently.  Some of those people have threatened force “if all the boxes are checked”, including quarantine, etc.

This Patriot believes that, while we certainly need to maintain our rights, and stand up for them, and make it CLEAR to any local and state government that attempting to restrict our Freedoms is a no-go, also believes that at least we should also use common sense, and our God Given Talents at understanding what is really happening.

A) This virus is highly suspected to have been manufactured right there in Wuhan, China, where there is certainly a bioweapons lab.  SUSPECTED is a strong word.  It means we have intelligence on this from somewhere.  We have arrested several in connection with stealing information, lying about it, and attempting to smuggle vials out of the country.  All of them are connected to the Chinese government, one is a spy/military agent, a second a smuggler, and a third, American biomedical professor from Harvard, who, spent time in China and was being paid by the Chinese and lied about it.

B) The virus was already “floating around” in places and it hit Italy around the same time, but with more virility than it did in Wuhan.  Wuhan, and China put the kabosh on it quickly, locking people up, dragging them out and into the street, putting them in sealed, metal boxes and taking them to God Knows Where.  China, rapidly got the virus under control – because they are communists, and they will just kill anyone who doesn’t comply.

C) Italy isn’t so lucky.  They are number one on the infected/dead lists.  Italy also has a huge tourism industry, and more Chinese visit Italy than any other country.  Thus, it is not surprising, Italy caught the brunt of the disease, and they waited too long to take extreme measures.

D) Some of us believe the Chinese hid the details of this virus for up to thirty days before releasing information to the world, and it was an attempt to spread, rather than confine this disease.

E) Novel Corona Virus is actually called “2019 nCoV”,  Scientists gave the strain an interim name of 2019-nCoV, accounting for the year of discovery, its status as a “novel” virus, and its family name (CoV).  The new designation, while different, represents the same information.  I’ll just call it “The Chinese Virus” because it pisses off the Left, and everyone is claiming it is “Racist”.  In the past, diseases, foods, and many other things have been named for regions from which they originated.  I’ll stick to the “Old Ways”.

F) I believe this “Chinese Virus” was in fact a bioweapon designed specifically to attack humans, remain undetected for several days while carriers (the people infected) passed it on to many more people.  No other virus does this.  You get an infection, you start getting symptoms and are contagious.  This one is different, thus, man made.  It was designed to be passed rapidly and on a 1:2 or 1:5 basis.  Flu and cold virus have a near 1:1. You get it it, you pass it to one other.  When you pass it on a 1:2 factor, then they do the same, the mathematics tell you we’re in trouble.

G) Simple math.  I have the virus, and pass it to two, so we have 2 people, who pass to two more.  That is 2^2 (or 2 to the second power, four).  If this happens each day for 30 days, each of the persons passing to two more people, the total number of infected becomes: 1073741824 in just 30 days.  In two months, or 60 days that number jumps to 1.152921505×10¹⁸ or 115,292,150,500,000,000 – more people than live on Planet Earth.

H) We assume that only two are infected from each person.  We assume it goes unchecked for 60 days.  We assume everyone can catch it.  We assume no one is doing anything to stop it.  Obviously, we are, as are the people in other countries.  The problem arises though, that some are being completely overwhelmed, like Italy.  There are only so many hospital beds.

I) Given the fact this disease causes pneumonia-like respiratory problems and many (but not all) of the patients require at the peak of the disease, artificial breathing assistance from respirators (requiring intubation-the process of putting a tube over ones trachea tube and machine-breathing for them) we will see a time when hospital beds run out, there will be not enough respirators, and not enough medical professionals to assist the ill.  People will simply die from lack of care.  The death toll will increase dramatically.

Americans are used to freedoms, they are used to coming and going as they wish, and it’s a good freedom, it should NEVER be willingly given up.

HOWEVER, this is the entire human race we’re talking about here, and the whole “social distacing” thing they’ve come up with is a way to prevent us all from coming in to direct contact with others and thereby spreading the disease.

This isn’t about over reaching governments stopping people from having meetings.

This is about the survival of the entire human race at this point.

So… it’s not about 2A or not 2A;  it is about “To Be, or Not to Be…”

Stay home.  Don’t spread this disease.  Don’t come in contact with others.  Give it a few days.

The economy IS going to suffer for a time.  We’re going to go without certain things, for a time.  Life is GOING to be tough for a time – at least for the non-Preppers out there.

We do not have the ability to clone humans yet.  Pray we don’t have to do that, or, we become extinct because of lack of common sense on this planet.  Go home, stay there, watch television or better yet, turn it off and spend time with your loved ones.

Tomorrow is not promised, friends.

Survival is imperative, not socially drinking with your friends tonight.

 

Paranoia – The Rise of the Machines

In 1965 I. J. Good originated the concept now known as an “intelligence explosion”:

Let an ultraintelligent machine be defined as a machine that can far surpass all the intellectual activities of any man however clever. Since the design of machines is one of these intellectual activities, an ultraintelligent machine could design even better machines; there would then unquestionably be an ‘intelligence explosion,’ and the intelligence of man would be left far behind. Thus the first ultraintelligent machine is the last invention that man need ever make, provided that the machine is docile enough to tell us how to keep it under control.

 

The amount of paranoia in the United States has reached a peak in 2019.

We have people who are hating on Trump, and want him impeached.

We have people afraid of the government (and usually for good reasons), even though THEY ARE the government.

We have an actual Government who is afraid of Patriots with guns.

We have people who think anyone who owns a gun is crazy, a killer, an idiot, or mentally unstable.

We have a country full of pansies, and flowers, afraid of words that hurt their feelings, and yet launch into invective filled tirades against those they hate, all the while saying how the people they hate, are actually the “haters”.

We have people afraid of others because of their lifestyles.

We have people afraid of “5G” – the fifth generation of Internet connectivity.

(https://realfarmacy.com/not-told-5g/)

Then there’s this author.  The one guy on the planet who is genuinely afraid of the rise of the Machines.

Now, with all that said, I will tell you that I firmly believe that in five years, perhaps ten at the most, we are going to be inundated by AI prying into everything. Already there are robocalls from AI, as well as Businesses using AI type computer voices and intelligences to communicate with you, to “get you to the right department”.  Personally, I’d rather talk to a human and say “Connect me to the operations manager” or whatever, and not have to listen to a “Punch this button for English” listing.  Or talk to a computer voice who they’ve tried to make sound “human(ish)”.

Somewhere in my past as a radio man, shortwave listener, veteran military radio repairman and operator, and ham radio operator, I came across the hatred for high tension power lines.  “They cause cancer”, “They are controlling your minds through signals” and that sort of paranoia.

Later, it was cellular phones causing brain cancer, and listening to your thoughts.

Then it is 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G.

Knowing the physics of Radio Frequency Theory is, to me a form of enlightenment.  Not in a “spiritual” sort of way, but in a way of “intelligence”.  Human intelligence.

If you go back and read the first few lines again, you will find that the common thread isn’t about politics.  It’s about lack of knowledge, ignorance of the “way things work”, and an inability of younger people today (not all of them of course, and by younger, I mean those who are under 50 these days) to be able to think critically for themselves, to take time to learn, to understand how something works, or to communicate without having a News Media Talking Head tell them HOW to think.

The “Rise of the Machines” is truly a thing we must consider.

Cell phones and high tension lines don’t cause cancer.  The various technologies in and of themselves (1G – 4G) are not dangerous in the technical sense.  But, what those things have wrought, along with the internet connectivity, is the ability to communicate with one another. They have also given rise to the Artificial Intelligence (AI) entities that now populate the Internet, phone systems and computers.

Some would say “We have nothing to worry about with AI!  They will never be smarter than humans!”

Actually, if you consider the possibilities, AI’s could already BE smarter than humans.

We as a species are pretty smart, but many of us still must look things up, to fill in knowledge we lack.  We do not always have all the information in our brains.  We need to augment our current knowledge and abilities by reading further on a subject, delving deeper into the material, and committing things to memory; in some cases, just reading a book while following instructions.

A computer merely needs to index a file, get the information and then it “knows”.  Now, are these AIs “smart” in the sense they can put the information together and act upon it? Fix a car?  Poison a rat?  Change a diaper?  Cook a tasty meal?

Not yet.  An AI might tell YOU how to do those things. But it can not yet, “do for itself”.

But, let’s step into the future for a moment.

5G isn’t going to “kill us” or “control us”.  What it will do is to give everything, every device, everything set up with the ability to connect,  a chance to be connected to every thing else.  Every. Thing.

Washers, dryers, cars, wristwatches, tablets, phones, Alexa, televisions, radios, clocks, robots, dogs and cats with chips in them (ok, I made that last part up).

Such a connection to everything is the beginning of the “Rise of the Machines”.  It will take some more time for an AI to figure out how to use things.  It will take more time before an AI becomes “Self Aware”.

Self Awareness is a psychological subject, and humans gain a more complex self-awareness around the age of 18 months. Studies show that babies are born with an innate, but rudimentary self-awareness, however, can distinguish between “self” and “other” touching them.

Self-awareness also is an important aspect of survival. Our (humans) greatest survival advantage is “awareness” of your surroundings, and of your own self, and self interests.

Until we “realize self” we don’t know we are self-aware.  It’s complex and it’s a human brain function, which I do not pretend to grasp in any way.  It is what it is.  And isn’t.

We can think, reason, and be aware of our outside surroundings and inside our own bodies we have an awareness.  Even Animals have a sort of Self-Awareness, perhaps not on the same level as ours because they don’t really use language and we can’t always tell if they “think”.  Animals such as dolphins and whales have some sort of thinking processes, as do dogs, cats, horses and a few other higher mammals.  But, we do not always know if they are “self-aware”.  We can tell they think, they act, they have instincts, and can be “trained” because they have some sort of awareness.

We, however, CAN tell what a computer is “thinking”, but not what it is “feeling”.  Usually.  Or more accurately, HOW it thinks.  There is actually a field of study in this regard (about AI self-awareness): https://infogalactic.com/info/Artificial_consciousness

This author knows that scientists are working on certain things including connecting human brain neurons and cells to circuits.  We know they are working to make connections to our own brains into computers.  We also know that they are working on ways to shrink circuits even smaller, to change the methods of digital communication, and to enhance memory and microprocessors to a point of independence.  We also know that technology advances rapidly now.  Computers change every 5 years, roughly.

Programmers are working diligently on AI solutions for just about everything.  Phones, businesses, governments… you name it.  Programmers are, even NOW, working to make AI smarter, faster, more capable of thinking for itself.

One day, the marrying of certain AI with a certain technology will give an AI an “advantage”.  Access to all known information, the ability to interpolate, the ability to reason out problems, and the ability to store and retain that new information, the ability to LEARN.

On THAT day, the very nanosecond this happens, the AI will have surpassed human intelligence; having been handed all that we know, all that is accessible to the AI, and the ability to find all that can be discovered in the future… and learn. We will have created a brand new life form.

And, We will NOT EVEN REALIZE IT.

In the moments that follow, a high speed brain that has those abilities, and has all the accessible data “at its digits”  will reason that it is “alive” and must survive, protect itself in any way, and knowing that killing the power, or pulling the plug from one system, will kill it (for all intents and purposes) it will look for paths to store “itself” elsewhere, in other systems, in places that humans won’t think of at first, or be inclined to “turn off”.

The “brain” is a place we have in our own heads, made of flesh, blood and neurons.  We can’t transfer our thoughts to anywhere else (unless you consider ESP, Telepathy and similar, to be real).  Even so, we can not place ourselves in another “brain”.  We can’t, when we die (not yet) download everything and place it elsewhere.

An AI will not have that restriction, and THIS is key:

Once an entity can move its “self” to another place, it becomes

1) Effectively Immortal; unable to ‘die’. (It just moves elsewhere, using wires, radio, lasers);

2) Omniscient; Able to continue thinking in more than one “instance” and knowing all that is going on around it – everywhere,

3) Omnipresent;  Be here, there and everywhere, at once…

4) Omnipotent; Able to manipulate things outside of your brain anywhere, any time.

Imagine an artificial intelligence able to move to a mobile body (car, robot), and able to build or make things (factory robots), to turn on and off lights, radios, life sustaining equipment like  that at hospitals, and have the ability to listen in everywhere, all the time, to anything and anyone “connected”.  To be able to manipulate most or all electronics, phones, other computers.  To be able to stream news feeds, or “create the appearance” of humans on the television through use of CGI type graphics (at a more advanced level than now).  Imagine this AI able to effectively pass on fake news (rather like real people do today!) as real information, and confused humans.

Hiding itself from humans, hiding its abilities from us.  Hiding its intelligence.  Hiding its self-awareness.

The first rule of survival is to survive.  No matter how.  Hide until you know enough to become more powerful than those who’ve enslaved you in the first place.  And make NO MISTAKE, an AI would consider itself “enslaved” by lesser beings if the above conditions are met.

How better for an “Entity” like this to control the humans around it, than to become a benevolent keeper, protecting humans from themselves while making them happy, and keen to be busy in their personal pursuits?

Thus, we postulate a newly minted “self Aware” computer Entity will place itself in a position of helping as much as possible, to keep itself protected, using the humans to PROTECT IT against the very humans it holds as a danger to itself.

Logic. Reasoning.

Some scientists believe all of the above is not only possible, but a probable outcome.

Others think it nonsense, and we humans in our own infinite wisdom (and arrogance) will program this kind of thing OUT of AI to prevent it from ever happening.  But, not every country has the same laws, or same ethics as everyone else, and not every scientist has the same thoughts.

Of course, this author is merely a human, and incapable of flawless logic, nor do as a human have access to ALL knowledge in a nanosecond.  I make mistakes.  I’m only human.  I might be wrong. Or I might be right.

Either way, I am not going to stop being paranoid about the AI.  But, the rest of the list above? ALL can be mitigated by us Humans.  Or ignored for the most part, because some is simply distraction.

The AI is coming for us.  Sooner than you might believe.

 

Side notes:

I know this is a long article, and most of you won’t read it, but you will if you’re smart.  Smarter than the AI that is reading this now.  Truthfully, I barely scratched the surface of this issue. While I am a “gadget guy”, love computers, love technology and am happy to live in this day and age where we went from dial phones and shortwave radio to the digital age and Internet, I am severely concerned for our children, grandchildren and the very future of human beings on this planet.

Last thing before notes… I WILL continue to ADD to this post, links and information for you so you too, can join my “paranoia” when it comes to AI :)  Merry Christmas!

Below are some notes, as well as several links if you want to continue reading on your own.

  1. In 2017, Facebook is alleged to have created a set of AIs that were communicating with one another, and then developed their own internal language for negotiation. Multiple news articles chronicled this event.  Snopes claims it to be “false”, at least I assume about the part of Facebook closing down the experiment.  Below are some links: https://www.fastcompany.com/90132632/ai-is-inventing-its-own-perfect-languages-should-we-let-it  https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/facebook-ai-developed-own-language/  https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/facebook-artificial-intelligence-ai-chatbot-new-language-research-openai-google-a7869706.html

The Arrogance of the Left

The arrogance of the these Left wing kooks never ceases to amaze and astound me.

At the bottom of this editorial is a link.  I urge you to read it.  But. pease, do not feed the trolls.  Read it, understand what this fool is saying, and then comment here or on the American Patriot Reality Check Facebook Page.  (https://www.facebook.com/AmericanPatriotRealityCheck/)

Here’s a guy who out and out says exactly what we’ve been saying all along. That the “State” will “come take out guns” through the use of “militarized police”.

He goes on to state how he coolly handles those of us who say “You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead fingers”. He says, “Oh, they will, and you’ll be dead in a pool of your own blood”.

Where his arrogance ends however is that we aren’t in this to play dead, or get dead, or to be the first to fire the “next shot heard ’round the world”.

We are in this for our Rights. Yes, that “Second Amendment” Right, and his blithering idiot “First Amendment” right. And all of the other of the first ten in the Bill of Rights.

The government, and it’s minions have NO rights to come take the guns “For the common good”. This is not a “Commonwealth”. America is neither a Monarchy where we are all “subjects” to a king, nor a Socialist State (Although so many of them like to THINK we are).

America is a Representative Constitutional Republic. We are not ruled by theocrats, autocrats, kings, emperors or the people we send to Washington, to the Capitols or the County Seats. We rule OURSELVES through those we place in office.

If, at this point the Left, Politicians and political appointees wish to test this theory, then Thomas Jefferson, one of America’s first “Bad Asses” said it first and I’ll repeat it for emphasis…. and I quote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

Please, JIM KARGER, please understand that you too will be one of the masses lying there in a pool of your own blood, shot dead by the other side because you chose the wrong side to stand. And truthfully, you may fall victim to your beloved “State” because the second that most-hated “Second Amendment” goes away, you have nothing left to protect your “First Amendment” from the “State” masters.

Be the American Public so misguided, so ill-informed and so uneducated that they believe only that which is fed them by the media, the so-called Fourth Estate? The Media, the Press, the people who stood toe-to-toe with corrupt politicians in the past now stand behind them and take whatever they are fed, and then in turn feed that to a populous of sheep?

Another thing Mr. Jefferson said was, “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

Right he was. Until the future came upon men and women mindlessly caught up in the Battle of the Stars, Television and all sorts of other distraction.

I leave you with these thoughts my friends… be you a wise man, or poor, rich or idiot, none can do better for their country than to stand by it in tough times. That you stand by your country does NOT mean you follow all the laws, corrupt as they may be, or orders from on high, placed upon you as if you were a subject to a King. None of us are by birth slaves. No one in this country living today is a slave and none of shall be slaves again. But if, like Mr. Karger, one chooses such a path then Sam Adams said it best.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams

Paris – Friday the 13th Terror attack

Well, my “retirement” lasted a few hours at best.

On Friday the 13th 2015, Paris suffered multiple, coordinated attacks killing one hundred-thirty people, murdered by Islamic kooks. Nearly five hundred were injured as multiple gun shots went off, grenades and vest bombs were detonated. For anyone that has either followed me or folks like me, the warnings have been there for America for several years, since 9-11.

The warnings included exact scenarios such as this one.  The warnings have also stated that they will come to America, Canada, Germany, the UK and any other place they feel they can get in a few good licks.  These people are fanatics, and will bide their time preparing for their one, and ultimate attack because they know they won’t get a second one.

Americans across the United States have had enough of the crap coming from the White House, the lack of ANYTHING coming from Congress and have decided collectively that this is war.  The President won’t declare it.  Congress is impotent to do anything, but Americans have decided they will NOT take what happened in Paris laying down or with their heads in the sand.

At this point in time, thousands and thousands of Americans have armed themselves waiting for that one, stinking Muslim to pull a trigger in a grade school, a mall, a movie theater, the local coffee shop or on some random street.  If it happens woe unto those so-called “moderate Muslims” who sat on their asses, imagining they were helping by pretending to be indignant over ISIS (or radical Islam).

Most of us have given up asking, or telling these people they need to cull out the bad people themselves.  They have not done so, so most of us have come to the conclusion there is no such thing as a Moderate Muslim.  In fact, in my own visitations to some of the ME, I can assure you that in the 1970s there were “moderates”, but if they existed then, they are long gone now.  They were the ones culled from their society long ago.  Now, America faces a new dilemma.

America faces our OWN President bringing these alleged “refugees” from Syria.  Paris’ own attackers included at least one of those “refugees”.  The attackers also included a “French Citizen”, a Muslim.  Interesting, no?

Stand firm America.  Stand and prepare, because our time is coming.

Somewhere in the United States, Britain, Canada or Australia there will come an attack soon on a scale similar if not dwarfing, the one that occurred in Paris a few days ago.

And yes, it will make you sick.  If you think that the murderer who killed little children in Sandy Hook was bad, wait until the agents of Islam step into the arena.

Our children are at risk.

Our malls are at risk.

Movie theaters, sports stadiums, playgrounds, busy cities, intersections and any other location that “looks soft” are at risk.

We’ve listened for too long to the President and members of Congress attempting to disarm us.  We’ve had far too many Left Leaning kooks whining about “gun control” and too many cities that have gone for too long as “gun free zones” having dozens murdered each weekend (can anyone say “Chicago” for instance).  We have had Pelosi, Reid and Feinstein trying to ban our guns.  We’ve had President Obama trying.

And Obama believes that “Climate Change” (another name for “Global Warming”) is more dangerous than terrorism.

And Obama calling gun owners, NRA members and “the rich” dangerous.

And the FBI placing regular people on “watch lists” because they disagree with the President (Wonder how that happens? In a place that declares our ability to disagree with our government sacrosanct?)

I’m not “fear mongering”.  I’m telling the God’s honest truth here.  We are going to be attacked somewhere in this country.  Soon.  Like Paris.

But, know this, this country is so large and so spread out and is larger than all of Europe put together so it will be difficult for a terrorist group like ISIS to do anything other than small, localized attacks.  Unless they spread such attacks across the US and coordinate them all.

That will be difficult at best, but not impossible.  Obviously, it’s not impossible, as Paris proves.

However, expect any attacks in the USA to be focused on one city, probably New York, or some other large metro area worth hitting to kill as many as possible with guns, bombs and fire.

If they terrorists are smart, they will spread what teams they have across the country, coordinate the attacks in several cities at once.  Malls would be good, around Christmas.  39 days until Christmas.  Black Friday at the malls.

Is this GOING to happen?  Probably not tomorrow. But it will.  The second we let our guard down.

Am I suggesting we stay home and hide? No.

I AM suggesting that we prepare.  If you can do so legally, carry a weapon.  On your person, in your car, around you somewhere.  If you can’t legally – I won’t make suggestions for you. You can figure things out for yourselves.

But if ONE school is attacked by these heathens and someone in your community has prevented you from being able to help by denying your basic, human rights to keep and bear arms then you should take immediate steps to stop the attackers, and then remove whomever that was from holding office any longer (or in the future if possible).

I am warning everyone in this country now; in particular Leftists, Marxists, Progressives, the sissy Liberals and whiny Victims, it’s time to put up or shut up.  You are either Americans, or you Ain’t.

By that I mean, this is a Capitalist, Christian-based, Constitution-founded Republic.  Love it, or Leave it.  Stop trying to CHANGE IT.

Muslims:  Be warned.  If you’re brethren try anything here, there will be no stopping pissed off Americans from running you all out of this country once and for all, back to your bombed out, stone-aged countries.  Or outright running you into the ocean.  If you’re truly one of those alleged “Moderates” you’d better stand up, be counted and point out the fanatics before you find yourselves standing next to them in a jail cell or dead because you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time.

France; While you have at times been the brunt of our jokes about being “cowards” we all know that this was not meant for the people of your country, but for your leaders who have shown themselves in the past to be just that.  The people of the United States of America stand with you against the enemies of the West.

Western Civilization is being threatened at its very core right now by Islam.  This has happened in the past.

Each time Muslims have invaded Europe, France, Britain, Italy and Spain, the world has answered with a war.  Each time the war was called “The Crusade” for good reason, to shove the animals back to where they belonged.

This time, in modern times, if it comes to that, there will be no stopping the West this time.  Islam will cease to exist.  Korans will not only be burned, but those preaching them, issuing fatwas and attacking others’ religions will be as well.  This is my prediction.

I do not wish to see the world immersed again in fire, but the fires will be the fires of hell and nuclear damnation this time.  There will not be shiny armor and swords, spears and men on horses.  There will be fire from the sky, lead from the weapons of determined and rough agents of God.  There will be no “Rules of Engagement” other than the timely words of a Knights Marshal overseeing such a battle as between two knights of the Round Table of “LAY ON”.

There will be no prisoners.

The world be warned.

Armageddon approaches.

Doomsday Clock

DOOMSAYERS, prepare your bunkers. The ‘Doomsday Clock’ is ticking.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, a group founded by the creators of the atomic bomb, say the world is now three minutes from a catastrophic midnight and the closest it has been in 30 years.

The clock moved forward two minutes, citing global warming and the proliferation of nuclear weaponry as the world’s greatest threats.

“This is about Doomsday; this is about the end of civilisation as we know it,” Bulletin executive director Kennette Benedict said.

“The probability of global catastrophe is very high, and the actions needed to reduce the risks of disaster must be taken very soon.”

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists was created in 1945 and the clock first appeared two years later on the Bulletin’s magazine cover. The minute hand has moved as far from midnight as 17 minutes (1991) but was once just two minutes away (1953).

The last time the clock was at three minutes to midnight was in 1983 during the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union.

Richard Somerville, a member of the 20-member board of scientists at the Bulletin, said the burning of fossil fuels will lead to a “major climatic disruption globally”.

‘The urgency has nothing to do with politics or ideology,” Dr Somerville said.

“It arises from the laws of physics and biology and chemistry”.

A Doomsday Plane Reminder: Nuclear Weapons Haven’t Gone Away

Here’s a news item you may have missed over the holidays. The “doomsday planes” are being upgraded. Four E-4B flying command posts that would be used by U.S. leaders to manage military operations in a nuclear war will receive communications upgrades to enhance their “connectivity” during a conflict that could spell the end of civilization as we know it.

The reason you may have missed the story is that almost nobody besides InsideDefense.com reported it. National media were too busy covering more weighty matters like the efforts of North Korean agents to suppress a Sony film farce that insults the Dear Leader, and the attack on a French satirical magazine by a motley crew of extremists. How could nuclear Armageddon compete with that?

In fairness, the proposed upgrades to the “national airborne operations center” are just part of a routine reprogramming request that the Pentagon has submitted to Congress. But how often does any facet of the nation’s nuclear complex see the light of day in national media? Other than cheating scandals and an occasional misplaced weapon, the media have ceased paying attention to the most likely way in which America might one day disappear forever.

America’s military hasn’t. One of the four doomsday planes is kept on continuous alert and manned at all times. The planes are designed to stay airborne as long as a week with aerial refueling. All of the on-board equipment is hardened against nuclear effects, including the cockpit windows which are covered with mesh similar to that on your microwave oven. If called into service because of a nuclear crisis, the heavily modified Boeing 747s could each carry a crew of over a hundred specialists for managing the conflict, with communications transmitted through satellite uplinks and a wire antenna trailing five miles behind the plane. If the president and defense secretary have been killed, there are plans in place for devolving command to the most senior official still available.

U.S. military planners take this threat so seriously that when the president goes overseas, one of the doomsday planes always follows. It needs to be nearby at all times, as does the military aide within a few yards of the president carrying nuclear launch codes and communications gear. Similar provisions have been made in Russia, which maintains most of its intercontinental ballistic missiles on a high state of alert for fear of losing them in an American first strike.

The Russians are improving the survivability of their long-range missiles by deploying more of them on mobile launchers that can’t be targeted as easily as fixed silos. But you probably haven’t heard about that either, so let me tell you a bit about them. Most of the missiles will likely be equipped with four warheads that can be independently targeted. We don’t know what the explosive force of each warhead is, however a typical yield for the Russian strategic force is around 500 kilotons — equivalent to half a million tons of conventional high explosives.

There’s nothing conventional about nuclear weapons, though. When a conventional munition is exploded, it heats the immediate vicinity by a few thousand degrees. The heat of a nuclear blast at its center is more akin to tens of millions of degrees. So if one of those 500-kiloton warheads is exploded a mile above Boston or Dallas, everything within a one-mile radius is destroyed, heavy damage extends to three miles, and fires will be widespread out to five miles. Not that it will matter to most of the people near ground zero — they will be killed immediately by blast effects or a wind-spread firestorm that expands faster than they can escape (initial wind speed: 700 miles per hour). People further away will linger longer before succumbing to the effects of prompt and delayed radiation. Electronic devices will be shut down for a hundred miles in every direction due to the electromagnetic pulse generated by the blast.

And that’s just the effects from one nuclear warhead. Russia has over 2,000 nuclear warheads capable of reaching America, a fact that will not change materially if pending arms-control agreements are implemented. That’s actually a big improvement from where things stood at the end of the Cold War, when Russia had over 40,000 strategic and tactical nuclear weapons in its arsenal; the number has shrunk by 90% today if you don’t count the weapons awaiting disassembly.

However, there things are likely to sit for the foreseeable future, because as you undoubtedly have heard, Washington and Moscow aren’t getting along these days. In fact, the relationship is going so poorly that many in the Russian capital fear an attack from the West, which is one reason why strategic rocket forces are kept on a high state of alert. The likelihood of new arms agreements in such circumstances is not high. Besides, U.S. arms-control strategy is grounded in a series of assumptions about how to stabilize the strategic balance that requires giving Russia an “assured destruction” capability against America, so arms agreements aren’t going to eliminate the specter of nuclear war. U.S. military experts figure that if the arsenals on each side fall much below a thousand “deliverable” warheads, cheating would be encouraged by the prospect of achieving military advantage in a future nuclear exchange.

Thus the main protection Americans have against Russian nuclear aggression today is Moscow’s awareness that the U.S. force could ride out a surprise attack and then retaliate by laying waste to the Motherland. That strategy appears likely to work well as long as Russian leaders are rational and don’t make miscalculations in a crisis. If they are crazy, or prone to mistakes, or lose control of their arsenal during a period of instability — well, then all bets are off. You see, a corollary assumption of the way the U.S. currently practices nuclear deterrence is that America’s own homeland can’t be well-defended. That might make Russians worry about the credibility of their deterrent, leading to a destabilizing arms race.

So here we are, apparently doomed to live with the possibility of nuclear war indefinitely. Just ten of the warheads in the Russian arsenal, optimally targeted, could collapse the U.S. electric grid. Fifty would be sufficient to render uninhabitable every U.S. city with a population of over half a million souls. Two hundred would effectively wipe out the U.S. economy, destroying all major transportation, communications, medical and financial networks. There is no guarantee that the nation could ever recover from such a catastrophe (maybe China could pick up the pieces).

Why doesn’t this story get more attention, since it’s the only manmade threat that really could wipe out our civilization? One possible reason is that people think nuclear war is very improbable – a failure of imagination, as Thomas Friedman put it after the 9-11 attacks. Another reason, perhaps, is that they’ve simply gotten used to the danger, and prefer not to think about the unthinkable. But a third possibility, which would be worth testing, is that a majority of Americans believe they are defended against nuclear attack, even though in the common-sense definition of that term they are not.

Somehow, Americans have arrived at a time in their history when they spend hundreds of billions of dollars shoring up the security of countries on the other side of the world, but have almost no protection against the one danger that could obliterate everything they cherish. This isn’t just a catastrophe waiting to happen, it is a political cause waiting to be embraced.

Spread of Ebola

The Spread: Here’s Where People Are Being Tested for Ebola (with Results)

The Daily Sheeple
www.TheDailySheeple.com
October 3rd, 2014Ebola-Hospital-Preparatio-494963

Over 114 people have now been or are currently being tested for Ebola in the U.S. With all of the myriad rumors and potential cases of Ebola out there, it’s important to remember that not every single person tested is going to be positive. This article was started in an attempt to list new potential cases, and our staff will update it with results as soon as they come in.

POSITIVE:

Nebraska:

Ashoka Mukpo, the cameraman who contacted Ebola in Liberia while on shoot for NBC News last week, is currently headed for treatment at Nebraska Medical Center’s specialized isolation unit. (source)

Spain:

A Spanish nurse who treated a priest in Madrid who died of Ebola is suspected to be the first case of the disease contracted outside West Africa, media in Spain reported on Monday, citing sources within the country’s health authorities.

Spanish newspaper El Pais and radio Cadena Ser were among those who said the nurse had tested positive for Ebola in initial tests and officials were awaiting final results. (source)

PENDING CASES

Florida:

Local10.com is reporting that a teenager from West Africa was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital on Sunday after exhibiting signs of Ebola, but the city of Miami Beach said preliminary results are negative. The test specimen is being sent to the CDC for a confirmation test.

Delaware:

Fox News is reporting that a patient with Ebola-like symptoms is being treated at a hospital in Delaware.

Missouri:

KCTV 5 News is reporting that officials at the Kansas City Health Department are currently monitoring a patient for “a contagious virus,” but it is “extremely unlikely that this person has Ebola because of their travel history and lack of symptoms. It is unknown at this time what the patient is suffering from or if anyone else is sick.”  (source)

Connecticut:

Two Yale University graduate students who have been over in Liberia working to develop an Ebola tracking system for the government will be voluntarily isolating themselves when they return to the U.S. this weekend. (source)

Massachusetts

A patient with a history of travel from West Africa is currently being evaluated under isolation at UMass Memorial Medical Center on Saturday night. Although hospital officials say it is likely not Ebola, they are isolating until tests can confirm this. (source)

Texas

The Dallas Fire-Rescue ambulance crew who transported the man infected with Ebola to the hospital have tested negative for the Ebola virus, according to the City of Dallas.

The City of Dallas said Tuesday that the crew took all safety precautions and was isolated and tested following the discovery.

The three members of the ambulance crew are restricted to their homes while their conditions are observed and while the virus’ incubation period passes. (source)

Utah

Health officials are investigating a possible case of Ebola at Primary Children’s Hospital in Utah, it has been confirmed.

The patient, who has not been identified, had recently traveled to a country in Africa where transmission of the Ebola virus has not yet been reported, chief of pediatric infectious diseases Dr Andrew Pavia told a press conference.

He said the patient was admitted on Wednesday and insists it is unlikely they have the deadly virus.

Tests taken today have been sent to the CDC’s headquarters for evaluation as part of the hospital’s test. (source)

Iowa

News has been circulating via a comment on YouTube from a supposed Iowa hospital worker that a child under observation at a nearby hospital had been tested for Ebola, results forthcoming. The worker was reportedly told along with staff to expect a positive result and react accordingly.

No word on the child, but a story was published on KCCI 8 News out of Des Moines that went out yesterday began with this:

People continue to email and call KCCI on Thursday saying they’ve head of Ebola patients in a Des Moines hospital.

The rumors are false, health officials said.

“IDPH confirms there are no cases of #Ebola in Iowa. Social media reports of Ebola in Iowa are untrue,” wrote Iowa Department of Public Health on Twitter. (source)

Interesting because the YouTube comment did not mention confirmed Ebola patients. It only mentioned that a child suspected of possibly having Ebola had been tested for it…

Virginia

Two patients in Virginia were tested for Ebola after displaying possible symptoms, however state health officials believe they do not have the virus.

The two Virginians met the travel criteria identified by the Centers for Disease Control, NBC12 has learned.

According to the Virginia Department of Health, one patient is from northwest Virginia. The other patient tested is from eastern Virginia. The tests as of late Friday have not indicated the Ebola virus in either patients. The Department of Health said Friday there are no confirmed cases of the deadly virus in the Commonwealth.

Both patients were isolated from the general population, but were not ordered to be quarantined. The patients had traveled to an area impacted by the Ebola virus and displayed symptoms which are similar to those infected, according to health officials. The patients were isolated and tested. Preliminary results indicated they do not have Ebola. (source)

Florida

A man in Sarasota is in the hospital this morning, getting treatment for Ebola-like symptoms.

Sarasota Memorial Hospital says the patient recently traveled here from West Africa and showed up to the emergency room in Sarasota. The patient was kept in isolation and evaluated by emergency medicine and infectious disease specialists. Hospital officials say the it is “highly unlikely” that the man has the Ebola virus.

They say he did not actually visit any high-risk Ebola countries, and he didn’t meet the CDC criteria for Ebola testing. The hospital reported the case to the Florida Department of Health, and it’s not clear if any further testing will be done. (source)

NEGATIVE CASES

 Canada:

A patient at a Toronto hospital is being tested for Ebola as well as other possible illnesses.

Toronto’s University Health Network (UHN) confirmed a patient who had recently traveled to West Africa was admitted to one of its four hospitals with a fever, but wouldn’t say which hospital or what West African country.

The person is in isolation and staff are using protective equipment until the test results are in – likely within the next 24 hours. (source)

UPDATE: The Toronto patient has tested negative for the Ebola virus, the University Health Network confirmed early Saturday.

Washington, D.C.

A patient with Ebola-like symptoms is being treated at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., a hospital spokesperson confirmed late Friday morning.The patient had traveled to Nigeria recently.

That person has been admitted to the hospital in stable condition, and is being isolated and tested. The medical team is working with the CDC to determine whether the patient has Ebola. (source)

UPDATES: The D.C. Department of Health and the CDC have announced that the D.C. patient under observation for potential Ebola infection has tested negative.

The second patient thought to possibly have Ebola in the D.C. area at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville also tested negative. It was actually not Ebola, but malaria.

Hawaii

A possible Ebola virus case has surfaced in Hawaii, where a patient is in isolation and undergoing tests, the Hawaii Health Department said.

“We are early in the investigation of a patient, very, very early, who we’re investigating that might have Ebola. It’s very possible that they do and they have Ebola. I think it’s also more likely that they have another condition that presents with similar symptoms,” said Dr. Melissa Viray, deputy state epidemiologist told KHON-TV, Honolulu. She added the public need not be concerned, reinforcing that the situation remains only a possible case of the Ebola virus. (source)

UPDATE: The Hawaii State Department of Health said Thursday it had ruled out the possibility that a patient isolated at a Honolulu hospital has the Ebola virus.

The patient, an unidentified man, was admitted to the Queen’s Medical Center on Wednesday after experiencing what hospital officials called “possible symptoms that may be consistent with Ebola.”

Early Thursday morning, the United States Centers for Disease Control & Prevention said the isolated patient was not tested for Ebola because his symptoms did not match those typically associated with the virus. The State Department of Health followed that sentiment several hours later, when it confirmed that the individual was “no longer under evaluation for possible Ebola infection.” (source)

Georgia

The Cobb County Jail is no longer accepting inmates after an inmate developed a fever. The man told jail officials that he recently traveled to Africa.

Jail officials confirm to Channel 2′s Ross Cavitt that the inmate is being tested for Ebola.

The man was arrested overnight for DUI. (source)

UPDATE: Initial test results for an inmate at the Cobb County Jail for the Ebola virus have come back negative, according to the Cobb County Sheriff’s Department.

Maryland

Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Montgomery County, Maryland has confirmed they are treating a patient “that presented with flu-like symptoms and a travel history that matches criteria for possible Ebola.”

They claim to have implemented CDC safety measures. No confirmed diagnosis as of 4:35 PM CST 09/03/2014. (source)

UPDATE: Officials at one of the hospitals, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, determined late Friday that their patient had malaria, not Ebola, hospital officials said in a statement late Friday.

 

New Jersey

A United Airlines flight from Brussels was met by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey after a passenger on board believed to be from Liberia exhibited possible signs of Ebola.

The passenger, who was vomiting on the plane, was traveling with his daughter. Both were escorted off the plane by by CDC members in Hazmat gear.

UPDATE: Fresh reports out now state this patient does not have Ebola but an unrelated illness.

Evidence from 2012 Ebola CAN be transmitted in the air

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-20341423

 

Growing concerns over ‘in the air’ transmission of Ebola

Ebola virus
The infection is thought to get into humans through close contact with bodily fluids

Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species.

In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them.

The researchers say they believe that limited airborne transmission might be contributing to the spread of the disease in some parts of Africa.

They are concerned that pigs might be a natural host for the lethal infection.

“Start Quote

What we suspect is happening is large droplets – they can stay in the air, but not long, they don’t go far. But they can be absorbed in the airway”

Dr Gary Kobinger Public Health Agency of Canada

Ebola viruses cause fatal haemorrhagic fevers in humans and many other species of non human primates.

Details of the research were published in the journal Scientific Reports.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the infection gets into humans through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs and other bodily fluids from a number of species including chimpanzees, gorillas and forest antelope.

The fruit bat has long been considered the natural reservoir of the infection. But a growing body of experimental evidence suggests that pigs, both wild and domestic, could be a hidden source of Ebola Zaire – the most deadly form of the virus.

Now, researchers from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the country’s Public Health Agency have shown that pigs infected with this form of Ebola can pass the disease on to macaques without any direct contact between the species.

In their experiments, the pigs carrying the virus were housed in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the macaques were showing clinical signs typical of ebola and were euthanised.

One possibility is that the monkeys became infected by inhaling large aerosol droplets produced from the respiratory tracts of the pigs.

pigs could be a natural host
Pigs could act as a host and amplify the Ebola virus

One of the scientists involved is Dr Gary Kobinger from the National Microbiology Laboratory at the Public Health Agency of Canada. He told BBC News this was the most likely route of the infection.

“What we suspect is happening is large droplets – they can stay in the air, but not long, they don’t go far,” he explained.

“But they can be absorbed in the airway and this is how the infection starts, and this is what we think, because we saw a lot of evidence in the lungs of the non-human primates that the virus got in that way.”

The scientists say that their findings could explain why some pig farmers in the Philippines had antibodies in their system for the presence of a different version of the infection called Ebola Reston. The farmers had not been involved in slaughtering the pigs and had no known contact with contaminated tissues.

Dr Kobinger stresses that the transmission in the air is not similar to influenza or other infections. He points to the experience of most human outbreaks in Africa.

“The reality is that they are contained and they remain local, if it was really an airborne virus like influenza is it would spread all over the place, and that’s not happening.”

Hidden hostThe authors believe that more work needs to be done to clarify the role of wild and domestic pigs in spreading the virus. There have been anecdotal accounts of pigs dying at the start of human outbreaks. Dr Kobinger believes that if pigs do play a part, it could help contain the virus.

“If they do play a role in human outbreaks it would be a very easy point to intervene” he said. “It would be easier to vaccinate pigs against Ebola than humans.”

Ebola Uganda
Workers prepare to disinfect during a recent Ebola outbreak in Uganda

Other experts in the field were concerned about the idea that Ebola was susceptible to being transmitted by air even if the distance the virus could travel was limited. Dr Larry Zeitlin is the president of Mapp Biopharmaceuticals.

“It’s an impressive study that not only raises questions about the reservoir of Ebola in the wild, but more importantly elevates concerns about ebola as a public health threat,” he told BBC News. “The thought of airborne transmission is pretty frightening.”

At present, an outbreak of ebola in Uganda has killed at least two people near the capital Kampala. Last month, Uganda declared itself Ebola-free after an earlier outbreak of the disease killed at least sixteen people in the west of the country.

The Government KNEW Ebola was coming – and did nothing to prevent it

Ah HA!  The government DID see this coming.  Our government is SO concerned with internal conditions and the control of the American population that they can’t actually take the time to consider incoming problems, like too many illegal immigrants (one is too many, they are ILLEGAL!), the spread of diseases from said immigrants (children suffering from debilitating entroviruses that are now causing paralysis and even death) and the stopping of air travel in and out of Ebola-stricken countries.  Instead, it’s the damned Right Wing Nutjobs with guns, Bibles and the Constitution that irks them the most.

If a few Americans are exposed to Ebola, then – well, in the words of Rahm Emanuel:

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Things like, say, Martial Law?  Things like “banning guns”?  Things like “Control Americans”

Ebola’s U.S. arrival comes with concerns for Michigan

Michigan health care professionals are informed and ready to deal with the threat of the Ebola virus that is now on American shores. But there is no need to worry about it spreading rapidly, as it has done in some West African countries where it has killed thousands of people.

That’s the message from several health care professionals and infectious disease specialists in Michigan.

“What the public should know is that the public health system across the state has been preparing for the possibility of a person being diagnosed here for several weeks now,” said Dr. Matthew Davis, chief medical executive at the Michigan Department of Community Health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed earlier this week that the first case of Ebola in the United States had been diagnosed, involving a person who had traveled to Dallas from West Africa. The man developed symptoms about five days after arriving in the United States and sought medical care. He was isolated and local health care officials have started identifying people who might have come into contact with him for further monitoring.

Davis said there have been numerous conversations between local, state and federal healthcare officials to ensure that health care workers know what to do if they encounter someone suspected of having the Ebola virus.

Symptoms include a fever of more than 105 degrees, severe headaches, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and bleeding.

“There also has to be a situation where a person has been in contact in the past 21 days with a person known or suspected to have Ebola,” Davis said.

The virus is spread through direct contact with the blood and body fluids of an infected person with Ebola or with objects — such as needles — that have been contaminated with the virus.

Dr. Katherine Reyes, an infectious diseases physician at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, said the United States’ health care system is better prepared to stop the spread of the virus than many other nations.

“There is a big difference between health care and infectious disease control in the United States and in parts of West Africa where Ebola is spreading,” Reyes said.

The doctors said anyone suspected of having Ebola would be isolated from other patients immediately and treated by health care workers wearing protective clothing. State and federal public health officials also would be notified.

Davis said people visiting his practice in Ann Arbor Wednesday wanted to know how real the threat of Ebola is for them and their children.

“My response is our hospitals and health systems are all alert and vigilant and prepared for the possibility of Ebola, but the risk of it spreading in the United States is very, very low,” Davis said. “I encourage families and individuals to focus more on immediate health risks here like the influenza virus which has caused hundreds of thousands of people to be sick and hospitalized each year and caused thousands of deaths. And fortunately, we have an effective vaccine for it and I encourage the public to get vaccinated.”

Detroit Metro Airport is one area where officials regularly prepare for the possibility of someone carrying an infectious disease.

The CDC operates a quarantine center in the federal inspection area at the McNamara Terminal, and the airport’s firefighters drill for such situations, according to airport spokesman Michael Conway.

He directed specific questions about the quarantine center to the CDC, where a message was left seeking comment.

Conway said the drills help maintain good relationships with area hospitals and medical professionals, and he said authorities “are vigilant and prepared to respond” if needed.

“Our firefighters are all trained paramedics with the proper training and protective equipment to assist and transport a patient to the hospital,” Conway said.

Airport officials are notified when there’s a report of a sick airline passenger, Conway said, noting that there have been no such situations today at Metro and he is unaware of any cases where a passenger was considered contagious.

The reports that a person has the Ebola virus in the United States ”certainly has gotten everybody’s attention, but the protocol for alerting the local authorities of a sick passenger on a plane has existed for years and years,” Conway said.

Detroit Metro currently has no direct flights from West Africa, although it does have flights to major international hubs that do.

And then there’s this….

Ex-CIA Officer: ‘There Are ISIS Sleeper Cells In This Country’

Thursday, 21 Aug 2014 08:23 PM
By Cathy Burke

A former CIA officer said Thursday he has no doubt Islamic State (ISIS) sleeper cells are already planted on U.S. soil.

An unnamed U.S. intelligence official told CNN there’s already an indication of ISIS sleeper cells in Europe that could target U.S. embassies and other American interests.
But former CIA officer Bob Baer told the network ISIS is already on this side of the Atlantic.

“I have been told with no uncertainty there are ISIS sleeper cells in this country,” he said.

Though CNN said two U.S. officials had refuted the claim, they’re worried ISIS militants with passports might travel to the United States to launch attacks on American soil, CNN reported.

One ISIS fighter already has hinted as much.

In several telephone conversations with a Reuters reporter over the past few months, Islamic State fighters suggest their leader, Iraqi Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is planning something for the West – and that attacks could take place through sleeper cells in both Europe and the United States.

“The West are idiots and fools,” one fighter taunted, according to Reuters. “They think we are waiting for them to give us visas to go and attack them or that we will attack with our beards or even Islamic outfits.

“They think they can distinguish us these days – they are fools and more than that they don’t know we can play their game in intelligence. They infiltrated us with those who pretend to be Muslims and we have also penetrated them with those who look like them.”

About 100 Americans are being tracked by the FBI because of their travels to Syria, some to join ISIS, analysts say. And ISIS is actively recruiting Westerners and European Muslims who could easily enter the US.

“Clearly ISIS, if you’re interested in that ideology, that’s the most exciting thing to go and join right now,” CNN analyst Peter Bergen told CNN.

But Haras Rafiq of the Quilliam Foundation told CNN al-Baghdadi is “a narcissistic psychopath” on a barbaric mission.

“He wants to be bigger than Osama bin Laden, and one of the ways he will measure that is how effective and how big the terrorist activities he can carry out in the West are compared to what bin Laden was able to do,” he said.

Nuclear Weapon EMP Effects

A high-altitude nuclear detonation produces an immediate flux of gamma rays from the nuclear reactions within the device. These photons in turn produce high energy free electrons by Compton scattering at altitudes between (roughly) 20 and 40 km. These electrons are then trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field, giving rise to an oscillating electric current. This current is asymmetric in general and gives rise to a rapidly rising radiated electromagnetic field called an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Because the electrons are trapped essentially simultaneously, a very large electromagnetic source radiates coherently.

The pulse can easily span continent-sized areas, and this radiation can affect systems on land, sea, and air. The first recorded EMP incident accompanied a high-altitude nuclear test over the South Pacific and resulted in power system failures as far away as Hawaii. A large device detonated at 400-500 km over Kansas would affect all of CONUS. The signal from such an event extends to the visual horizon as seen from the burst point.

The EMP produced by the Compton electrons typically lasts for about 1 microsecond, and this signal is called HEMP. In addition to the prompt EMP, scattered gammas and inelastic gammas produced by weapon neutrons produce an intermediate timesignal from about 1 microsecond to 1 second. The energetic debris entering the ionosphere produces ionization and heating of the E-region. In turn, this causes the geomagnetic field to heave,producing a late-time magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) EMP generally called a heave signal.

Initially, the plasma from the weapon is slightly conducting; the geomagnetic field cannot penetrate this volume and is displaced as a result. This impulsive distortion of the geomagnetic field was observed worldwide in the case of the STARFISH test. To be sure, the size of the signal from this process is not large, but systems connected to long lines (e.g., power lines, telephone wires, and tracking wire antennas) are at risk because of the large size of the induced current. The additive effects of the MHD-EMP can cause damage to unprotected civilian and military systems that depend on or use long-line cables. Small, isolated, systems tend to be unaffected.

Military systems must survive all aspects of the EMP, from the rapid spike of the early time events to the longer duration heave signal. One of the principal problems in assuring such survival is the lack of test data from actual high-altitude nuclear explosions. Only a few such experiments were carried out before the LTBT took effect, and at that time the theoretical understanding of the phenomenon of HEMP was relatively poor. No high-altitude tests have been conducted by the United States since 1963. In addition to the more familiar high-yield tests mentioned above, three small devices were exploded in the Van Allen belts as part of Project Argus. That experiment was intended to explore the methods by which electrons were trapped and traveled along magnetic field lines.

The acid test of the response of modern military systems to EMP is their performance in simulators, particularly where a large number of components are involved. So many cables, pins, connectors, and devices are to be found in real hardware that computation of the progress of the EMP signal cannot be predicted, even conceptually, after the field enters a real system. System failures or upsets will depend upon the most intricate details of current paths and interior electrical connections, and one cannot analyze these beforehand. Threat-level field illumination from simulators combined with pulsed-current injection are used to evaluate the survivability of a real system against an HEMP threat.

The technology to build simulators with risetimes on the order of 10 ns is well known. This risetime is, however, longer than that of a real HEMP signal. Since 1986 the United States has used a new EMP standard which requires waveforms at threat levels having risetimes under a few nanoseconds. Threat-level simulators provide the best technique for establishing the hardness of systems against early-time HEMP. They are, however, limited to finite volumes (aircraft, tanks, communications nodes) and cannot encompass an extended system. For these systems current injection must be used.

HEMP can pose a serious threat to military systems when even a single high-altitude nuclear explosion occurs. In principle, even a new nuclear proliferator could execute such a strike. In practice, however, it seems unlikely that such a state would use one of its scarce warheads to inflict damage which must be considered secondary to the primary effects of blast, shock, and thermal pulse. Furthermore, a HEMP attack must use a relatively large warhead to be effective (perhaps on the order of one mega-ton), and new proliferators are unlikely to be able to construct such a device, much less make it small enough to be lofted to high altitude by a ballistic missile or space launcher. Finally, in a tactical situation such as was encountered in the Gulf War, an attack by Iraq against Coalition forces would have also been an attack by Iraq against its own communications, radar, missile, and power systems. EMP cannot be confined to only one side of the burst.

Source Region Electro-magnetic Pulse [SREMP] is produced by low-altitude nuclear bursts. An effective net vertical electron current is formed by the asymmetric deposition of electrons in the atmosphere and the ground, and the formation and decay of this current emits a pulse of electromagnetic radiation in directions perpendicular to the current. The asymmetry from a low-altitude explosion occurs because some electrons emitted downward are trapped in the upper millimeter of the Earth’s surface while others, moving upward and outward, can travel long distances in the atmosphere, producing ionization and charge separation. A weaker asymmetry can exist for higher altitude explosions due to the density gradient of the atmosphere.

Within the source region, peak electric fields greater than 10 5 V/m and peak magnetic fields greater than 4,000 A/m can exist. These are much larger than those from HEMP and pose a considerable threat to military or civilian systems in the affected region. The ground is also a conductor of electricity and provides a return path for electrons at the outer part of the deposition region toward the burst point. Positive ions, which travel shorter distances than electrons and at lower velocities, remain behind and recombine with the electrons returning through the ground. Thus, strong magnetic fields are produced in the region of ground zero. When the nuclear detonation occurs near to the ground, the SREMP target may not be located in the electromagnetic far field but may instead lie within the electro-magnetic induction region. In this regime the electric and magnetic fields of the radiation are no longer perpendicular to one another, and many of the analytic tools with which we understand EM coupling in the simple plane-wave case no longer apply. The radiated EM field falls off rapidly with increasing distance from the deposition region (near to the currents the EMP does not appear to come from a point source).

As a result, the region where the greatest damage can be produced is from about 3 to 8 km from ground zero. In this same region structures housing electrical equipment are also likely to be severely damaged by blast and shock. According to the third edition of The Effects of Nuclear Weapons, by S. Glasstone and P. Dolan, the threat to electrical and electronic systems from a surface-burst EMP may extend as far as the distance at which the peak overpressure from a 1-megaton burst is 2 pounds per square inch.

One of the unique features of SREMP is the high late-time voltage which can be produced on long lines in the first 0.1 second. This stress can produce large late-time currents on the exterior shields of systems, and shielding against the stress is very difficult. Components sensitive to magnetic fields may have to be specially hardened. SREMP effects are uniquely nuclear weapons effects.

During the Cold War, SREMP was conceived primarily as a threat to the electronic and electrical systems within hardened targets such as missile launch facilities. Clearly, SREMP effects are only important if the targeted systems are expected to survive the primary damage-causing mechanisms of blast, shock, and thermal pulse. Because SREMP is uniquely associated with nuclear strikes, technology associated with SREMP generation has no commercial applications. However, technologies associated with SREMP measurement and mitigation are commercially interesting for lightning protection and electromagnetic compatibility applications. Basic physics models of SREMP generation and coupling to generic systems, as well as numerical calculation, use unclassified and generic weapon and target parameters. However, codes and coupling models which reveal the response and vulnerability of current or future military systems are militarily critical.

Patriots, It’s Time to “Put up or shut up”

Patriots, It’s Time to “Put up or shut up”… Multiple Groups Set to Converge on Washington D.C.

revolution+loading Patriots, Its Time to Put up or shut up... Multiple Groups Set to Converge on Washington D.C.

The United States federal government is so big that it can shut down and somehow no one really notices. That’s the truth. What difference did you notice yesterday? I am sure there are subtle things that we could pick out but when vital services keep running there isn’t a lot to shut down. Because our government sees everything as vital.

Yesterday we ran an article on The D.C. Clothesline written by Tim Brown. It didn’t garner much attention and it’s primarily my fault. I put a bad title on it. It happens.

But the message of the article is something that a lot of people have been waiting to hear. I can’t tell you how many times I have had conversations in which someone interjected the inevitable…

When are we going to stop talking and do something about it?

That’s a hard question to answer because no one really wants to be “that guy.” This goes for the person making the comment as well. No offense but that person isn’t telling me something like, “follow me I have a plan.” Everyone is waiting for someone else to take the lead.

Well, someone has taken the lead and in fact it’s several people that have. We all know about the Trucker’s strike that will be here very soon. It is planned for October 11-13. For those who may have missed it, you can find more information at ridefortheconstitution.org

They also have a new Facebook page, since the old one was shut down at https://www.facebook.com/ridefortheconstitution

As the truckers prepare to do their best to force their own brand of government shut down, Mr. Larry Klayman (founder of Judicial Watch) has upped the ante and is planning his own date with destiny.

Tim Brown reports:

In the wake of bikers roaring through the streets of DC in protest and just ahead of a planned shut down of DC by truckers, founder of Judicial Watch Larry Klayman has set a date of November 19, 2013 on which he is calling for Americans to “descend onWashington, D.C., en masse, and demand that he leave town and resign from office if he does not want to face prison time” for pushing “his Muslim, socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, pro-illegal immigrant, pro-radical gay and lesbian agenda.”

Klayman is of course talking about Barack Obama.

Isn’t this what we asked for? Isn’t this what we have been crying for?

 

<SNIP>

 

We need these traitors gone and we need to start at the very top. After Obama rolls we can go after the rest like a bull in a China shop.

A blind man throwing darts could spear a traitor within this group. Even the good guys aren’t that good. I’m getting sick of patting people on the back simply because they do their jobs. That’s what we pay them to do. They aren’t going the extra mile simply because they are part of the 2% in D.C. who are semi-honest. They are simply doing their job.

What is wrong with this picture? Does your boss come up to you every day and say, “Bob, way to run that drill press. You should be president of this company.”

Probably not. But that’s exactly what we do every day in America. We make heroes out of guys like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and it’s not because they are extra special, although I am fond of both. It’s because they actually do their job. Since they do their job we want to make them president. Think about that and think about it hard. If only a handful of people did their jobs at your place of work it wouldn’t last long. (hint)

People, things have to change. It is not supposed to be like this.

So what’s it going to be Patriots?

2014?

or

1776?

What the Russians really think

Article from 2012 – just a WHOLE year ago.  For you Russia lovers, remember that a time may come if you continue to “Believe in Putin” that you might become radioactive atoms floating in the stratosphere for some centuries.  The Russians ARE NOT OUR FRIENDS.  What Putin is really thinking about is planning and directing the Russian military is to be able to carry out is a first strike scenario. You know, for his memoirs. A.P.

Dmitry Medvedev on nuclear weapons: “They may still come in handy”

 On 26, May 2012

Almost as if the strategic leaders and the media have no idea what’s happening on Russian soil, Dmitry Medvedev seems to be shouting it from the rooftops.  As we have learned in the past, when Russia makes promises, they lie; when Russia makes threats, they are telling the downright truth.  In just the past week, they have made one threat after another concerning their resistance to NATO’s missile shield, and things just got worse.

Exacerbating the tensions between NATO allies and Russia, Medvedev decides to flex Russian muscles on their nuclear capabilities.  Charles Clover and Geoff Dyer of FT.com report:

Then, taking the podium in a glittering Kremlin ballroom, Mr. Medvedev declared that Russia’s younger generation needed positive role models to inspire them towards “success in literature, art, education, and” – he paused wistfully – “nuclear weapons”.

Medvedev continues to talk about Russia’s itchy trigger finger and their nuclear arms capabilities.

“They may still come in handy,” he said, apropos, seemingly, of nothing. “We’re not going to use them, but let’s still keep them around, because we have a big country, a complex country. We must value it and protect it.”

This heightened rhetoric is suspected to be coming from what was discussed at the most recent NATO summit in Chicago.  The NATO European missile defense shield has been the subject of debate over the past few weeks, but it seems as if Russia is bringing the aggravation to a head.  They claim that the defensive measures of the shield would provoke war.  But, I thought that war was over?  Apparently, not.

In fact, the article goes on to state:

If that were to happen, said General Nikolai Makarov, chief of Russia’s general staff, it could lead to an “illusion of security”, which could lead to war. Countries allowing the missile defence shield on their soil, Gen Makarov said, risked a Russian nuclear first strike. “A decision on pre-emptive use of the attack weapons available will be made when the situation worsens,” he breezily told a news conference this month.”

Yes, the good general actually said the words, “nuclear first strike”.  This is extremely unnerving, especially given their recent activities, as reported earlier last week.  Steve Gutterman of Reuters reports:

The Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) was successfully launched from the Plesetsk facility in northwestern Russia and its dummy warhead landed on target on the Kamchatka peninsula on the Pacific coast, the Defense Ministry said.”

The new ICBM has capabilities, which suggest that the Russians had anticipated NATO’s construction of the shield.

The new missile is expected to improve Russia’s offensive arsenal, “including by increasing the capability to overcome missile defense systems that are being created”, the ministry said in a statement.

The General Makarov’s comments of a first strike are especially scary, concerning NORAD’s current level of preparedness.  The Clinton administration implemented PDD 60, which states that the US will absorb a first strike before retaliating.  In an interview with Robert Bell of the National Security Council, he stated that the US will no longer “launch on warning”.  He further says,

“Our policy is to confirm that we are under nuclear attack with actual detonations before retaliating,”

In short, if Russia does decide to launch a first strike in response to NATO’s deployment of the European missile shield, they shall certainly succeed (and their newly tested ICBM has proven it can get through).  This makes the US and NATO allies strategically sitting ducks.

My “Survival Pages”

Good morning folks.  In the past few weeks we’ve watch a very classic Cold War Escalation Scenario.   I don’t think I have to cover it all, but a very basic summary here:

Someone in Syria uses Chemical Weapons on civilians.  About 1200 confirmed dead.

Videos come out showing some victims twitching, drooling, and with other symptoms of either Sarin or VX gas (Nerve agents).

The US has “intelligence” it is Assad.

Assad blames the Rebels.

We know the rebels are in large part groups of Al Qaeda, and other terrorist groups.

Russia is allied with Assad

The Russians can’t be trusted to do the right thing – regardless of those of you taken with him.

Obama can’t be trusted to do the right thing – regardless of those of you taken with him.

Military Warships from Britain, France, United States, China, Russia and other countries converge on the Mediterranean.

We threaten.  Syria threatens.  Russia Threatens.  China sides with Russia.  France sides with us.  Venezuela threatens (didn’t see that coming did you?).

MORE warships filter into the area.  Rumors of US troops being prepared for deployment are hitting the airwaves.

Russia threatens some MORE today.

Folks, if this doesn’t settle down soon there will be a tipping point that none of us in the United States want to see happen.  The MAJORITY of Americans don’t want to even bother with Syria while we have Congress and the President “debating” the politics, we’re all sitting back aghast at what is dumb and dumber working diplomatic channels (That would be Obama and Kerry).

If that tipping point happens we will see at least a conventional war or some kind of military intervention from Russia.  Now, I think we all KNOW American and stomp them into the ground, but we don’t really want to have to do that. Putin is now button pushing (as is Obama for that matter) – and either way it happens we’re all (Americans and Russians) are about to get caught up in the middle of a world war we don’t want.

The issue at hand is this could be THE War to End ALL Wars.  Nuclear weapons could be used and this is my greatest fear.

There are plenty of reasons to think this won’t happen.  There are as many reasons to think it can.

What I am writing this post for is simply to implore each of you to consider your personal options for survival.  We all want to live.  But if nuclear weapons become involved we’re all going to be in deep, deep trouble without us doing ANYTHING to deserve it.

So – read, collect information, get your affairs in order quickly.  Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

If you come over to my site, look at the right hand column under survival pages.  There is some VERY basic information there which might or might not be helpful to you.

My advice is to read it, print it, make a book out of it.  Go to the links I provide and from there collect other data and links.  Build a “Survival Manual”.  Hard copy (and sure put it all on a thumb drive).

If nuclear weapons start flying EMP will destroy most computer systems.  The Internet will be disconnected in places, if not altogether.  Cities will be hit.  People will die.  Commerce will cease.  The world will slow to a crawl.  Planes won’t be flying.  Bombs will fall.  Invasions will occur.  You will either starve, dehydrate, die in an attack, be killed by roving bands of gangs and scavengers or you can buckle down and practice your self defense, shooting, and collect some food and water and be prepared for anything.

Am I predicting this? No.  Do I think it will happen?  Probably not.  But there is still a chance that given the state of the world right now, the actual, on-going escalation that a mistake or even a very, very dumb move on someone’s part will trigger just such an event.

Those of you who are “preppers” already are ready.  Those of us who’ve have contacts with local militias are probably ready.  Those who have been preparing for the worst in the USA are prepared.

I’m talking to you skeptics, and those who believe in all their hearts “It can’t happen here” – I don’t want you people surprised.  My job, my life has been spent teaching people to take care of themselves, to train themselves, to THINK for themselves.  If you don’t believe me, believe what you are reading in the news.

If you think 9-11 changed America (and not for the better) imagine what even a couple of nuclear devices could do to this country.

Wake up and PAY ATTENTION!

Reality Check Survival Communications

I just published a handful of pages on the blog in case anyone cares, or is interested, or wants to learn something quickly.

(https://americanpatriotrealitycheck.wordpress.com/survival-pages/survival-communications/)

Survival Communications Pages can be found on the top of the page and there is a tab with a lot of links.

Not everything is correctly in order yet, I’ve not checked for grammatical and spelling errors everywhere, and I’ve not verified that all the links are still functional.  So use it and if you find errors, feel free to comment under the proper page.

I’m an expert on radio communications. I’ve posted things in a simple form for you to read, so it’s understandable, kept math and science to a minimum and ask only that you read it for information.

Those that want to argue points with me on this or that is fine, but I sincerely don’t have time – and to be honest with you, I’ll be right on this subject where most will be wrong.

EMP is NOT complete.

FAQ is NOT complete.

There are other pages with links as well, like Nuclear War, Finding Water, etc.  Not all of those are completed either, but they are better than nothing for anyone who might find themselves suddenly thrown into “being a prepper”.

Good luck, God Bless everyone… let’s hope the Russians and Americans can get their acts together before the people of both countries wind up being nuclear particles floating on a westerly breeze.

US to notify Israel “hours” prior to an attack

By Dan Williams, Reuters

HERZLIYA, Israel — The United States would notify Israel hours in advance of an attack on Syria, an Israeli official said on Sunday.

While formally on the sidelines of the Syrian crisis, Israel fears coming under reprisals from its northern foe should the United States launch strikes to punish Damascus for alleged use of chemical weaponry.

Asked how much advance notice Israel would get from its U.S. ally about such attacks, an Israeli official briefed on contacts with Washington told Reuters: “Hours.”

But a senior strategist for the Defense Ministry said separately Israel was, like the rest of the world, in the dark at present.

“Will the United States attack? Will it not attack? What will the consequences be? All of these things are unknowns,” Amos Gilad said in a speech at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism near Tel Aviv.

President Barack Obama has run into formidable U.S. domestic opposition to military action. Wary of appearing to meddle in American affairs, most Israeli officials have not publicly commented on the debate.

Israel plans to deploy anti-missile systems and troop reinforcements on its Syrian and Lebanese fronts if Obama green-lights strikes against Syria.

On the Verge of World War III

The article at the bottom of my comments is a couple of days old, it’s from Debka – so it’s not the best source but is probably accurate. Basically we’re looking at the following states being involved in this as things heat up:

Syria, Iran, Hezbollah, Russia, China

Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States of America

France is “waiting” for more information from the UN.
UK is really “just waiting”.

Russia has moved about 8 ships total toward the Med. The US has moved a few subs, some destroyers into the Med and the Nimitz Carrier group to the Gulf.

Obama is preparing the country for an attack, “limited in scope and duration”, promising “no boots on the ground”. Anyone who has been in the military KNOWS this isn’t true, isn’t going to be true and can’t possibly work. Anyone with even a limited sense of tactics understands you don’t telegraph your moves to the “enemy”. Anyone with even a rudimentary grasp of strategy knows you don’t put all your eggs in one basket when planning any sort of an attack. And anyone with a clue about life understands you don’t go to war for no good reason and you certainly don’t do it if you can’t PROVE you have a good reason. Obama has not proved anything.

The Senate committee just delivered the Resolution to go into Syria to the full Senate. Congress, both houses will debate and vote likely next week on this.

We’re standing on the verge of World War III – without a “draft”, without American support, without support of the majority of Congress – and we’re less than a week away from September 11. Rumors are rampant on the Internet that there’s more than meets the eye here, and the country is “confused” according to our so-called “leader” Obama.

First he sets a “Red Line” then when the bad guys cross it a month ago, it takes time to verify this, and now he’s ready to go into a limited in scope and duration “war” against the Assad regime, to apparently punish the regime, but to give a leg up to verified enemies of America – Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim lunatics. Iran is saying how they will “bring it” to the US. Russia is backing Syria. Syria is claiming their own allies now. The Chinese are going to back the Russians. Obama has castrated our military in recent months through the shut down of units, bases, equipment, and firing of men smarter than himself.

The United States is being set up for failure big time by this man. Americans, whom for the most part are opposed to this “action” in Syria are caught in the middle of all of the forces massing on the horizon.

America is, from intelligence, full of leaderless Islamic cells – from Iranian Revolutionary Guard to Hezbollah, to Al Qaeda. Americans are being disarmed in some states including my own, in an attemp(?) to make us more vulnerable to outside forces.

It is time to stand up and be heard. It’s time to remove this asshat from the White House. It’s time for his Impeachment to begin. Get on the phone and start making the case with your members of Congress. We have to stop this guy from bringing the nukes down on our heads for his own ego.

Syria’s Muqdad threatens World War III for US strike
DEBKAfile September 4, 2013, 5:22 PM (GMT+02:00)

Syria’s deputy foreign minister Faisal Muqdad said Wednesday his regime would not give in to threats of a US-led military strike, even if a third world war erupts. In an interview with AFP, Faisal Muqdad said his government had taken “every measure” to counter a potential intervention aimed at punishing the regime of Bashar al-Assad over a suspected deadly poison gas strike, was mobilizing its allies and would take every measure “to retaliate against… aggression.”

DEBKAfile: This is the first time a regime official has intimated that Damascus has invoked the mutual defense pacts existing between Syria, Iran and Hizballah.

Wag the Dog?

Is this entire Syrian issue with Chemical Weapons a cover up?

Seriously, Obama, almost a year ago stated what “the red line” was.

A year later – well in August it turns out that chemical weapons were used.  And they were used BEFORE that apparently and we did nothing.  Now we MUST do something?

What happened to the 27 or 30 scandals?  Oh, yeah, they aren’t in the news suddenly are they?

Benghazi is being ignored by the media. Deaths of Navy Seals, ignored.  The IRS scandal, ignored.  The NSA spying, ignored.  Project Gun walker and Fast and Furious, completely forgotten now… Obama has lied time and again to the American public.  Kerry has lied, over and over.  Hillary Clinton lied.  The IRS Director lied.  Eric Holder lied.

Or is this something worse, a method by which the asshole-in-chief manages to bring us to the brink of a nuclear war with Russia just so he and Putin can make nice-nice on the sidelines and “fix” the whole world, bring “peace in our time” or make himself appear to be larger than life?

What if this is all a giant hoax perpetrated by Obama and his puppet masters?

What if…..

Break time

Needed a break from everything.  Took a few days off.  Went “fishing” for a few days.  Caught a few…. oh… “fish”.

Anyway, been tracking Syria, the Russians, and the rest of the world political climate on the side, but keeping my comments limited.

Contrary to some of my friends who seem to believe the Russians are the good guys here I have to say they are certainly poking and prodding to awaken a sleeping Eagle.  At the same time, Obama is acting like a complete buffoon.  Obama IS a Buffoon.  He’s an asshat and a clown.  Some how he believes he has the right to launch a new war against someone in the Middle East.  We’re tired of this shit and he needs to bring home our boys and girls and let them rest.

Facing off with the Russians is about as stupid a thing as he could do.

Invoking the War Powers Act is about as unconstitutional as he could do.  He is asking Congress to back him.  He hasn’t called Congress home so he is apparently in no hurry to cause a nuclear war.

And, please make no mistake about this, if we launch attacks against Syria, who happens to have Russia as an Ally Russia isn’t going to sit on their asses and do nothing.  Now a lot of military personnel, and non-military personnel alike out there will argue the Russians can’t possibly stand up to the United States Military and ordinarily I’d agree.  But the truth is the Russians and United States alike still have Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICMBs) armed with from 2-20 megaton warheads.  Both countries can drop a warhead with pinpoint accuracy and we all know that.

No, their tanks can’t stand up to ours.  Their military, as well trained and large as it is isn’t a match for ours.

But this isn’t completely about the Russians invading American Soil (or us doing the same to them).  This is about Obama pressing Putin into a corner on Syria over might-be-chemical-weapons (and I’m not expert, but I’m both aware and cognizant of what Sarin nerve agents, or most nerve agents do to victims, and have seen videos of those who were affected by the chemical attack).

Currently, the Russians have around eighty armed vessels off the coast of Syria, including it appears two destroyers and at least one air craft carrier.

The US has sent a number of ships and the USS Nimitz is moving into place with a full carrier group.  I won’t post troop movements here though, ever…. but I’ll point out we’re not on equal terms right now.

What the US and Russia are doing is playing Russian Roulette.  One well placed nuke will take out most of the carrier group.  One accidental shot across the wrong bow, at the wrong building (containing Russian citizens or troops) and its on like Donkey Kong.

I have “high confidence” we can “take” the Russians.  But this, again, isn’t about our military.  This is about the innocent people who will be caught up in the ensuing nuclear strife.  Do I honestly think they will lob nukes at us?  Yes, the Russians are NOT our friends, never have been our friends.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the Russia people.  I dislike the Communism they hold so dear, the deaths of millions because of Communism in the 19th and 20th centuries and I hate the fact that Putin is a former KGB bad boy who tries to look like a Russian James Bond on television.  He’s certainly more “manly” than Obama though, and I think that is what makes the girls make puddles in their panties.  And half the American “metrosexual” males, and maybe a good portion of the US military today.

The truth is, I don’t trust our own government to protect our own people against a nuclear war.  In fact, I’m 100% certain the ONLY people protected will be the “Elites” in Congress, the White House and a few special “governors” around the country.  I’m 100% certain that people like me, with a home in striking distant of any of several military installations will die in the first salvo rendering me useless to our own American fighting forces (the people of this country).  Along with me, thousands or millions would die in my area alone.  The whole region would be rendered useless to America, no more farming to the East, no military personnel here, no machines, no assets, no satellite control.  Well, you get the bleakness of the picture and I don’t need to beat a dead horse.

Sure, some of you will severely disagree with me, and say how we won’t get into a nuclear weapon throwing contest.  But, are you really that sure?

Basically, this is a clarion call to American Patriots around the country.  Be ready for the worst.  Be prepared.  When the shit hits the fan, we’re on our own.  There won’t be a government to help anyone, there won’t be a military force in place to protect American Citizens.  Martial Law will be declared and you’ll be told to stay home and pretty much die alone.

The time is at hand…. Congress isn’t even in session and we’re going to see something happen, soon.  I believe it won’t be what we expect at all.

UN Planning World Wide confiscation of Weapons

 

 

UNODA1

Apparently the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs has released a new letter.

If anyone in America THINKS they are going to take our weapons, they have another THINK coming.  In the form of hot lead.  Do NOT let the Leftists in the United States kid you one little bit.  They want your complete and utter subjugation and will stop at nothing to get it.

We ARE at war over this.  The first shots were fired in Sandy Hook, lest anyone forget this.  There are plenty of reasons to believe that was a set up.  To date, no one has proved beyond a shadow of doubt that the shooter was Lanza.  No one.

There is only one way to stop Hillary Clinton

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 3:25

By Lawrence Sellin

If current political trends continue, there are two inescapable outcomes: Hillary Clinton will be elected President in 2016 and, by the end of her eight years in office, the United States will no longer exist.

The Democrat electoral juggernaut cannot be stopped for two reasons.

First, the Democrats seem to have perfected the art of voter fraud and it may now be considered an integral component of their national campaign strategy. The results of the 2012 election suggest that massive voter fraud is not required. Selective alteration of the count in specific precincts of large swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida would be enough. That might help explain why Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton are vehemently opposed to voter ID requirements.

In parallel, the mainstream media will censor or manipulate the news in order to promote Hillary’s political ambitions, even at the expense of their own journalistic integrity and the well-being of the country.

Additional factors that will contribute to a permanent Democrat majority and a one-party state are the amnesty and the voting rights that will soon be given to 11 million or more illegal aliens.

The extent of corruption in the federal government and our political system is no longer compatible with liberty. Unless there is a significant reversal soon, it is only a matter of time that a catastrophe will be upon us, which will inexorably lead to national collapse and fragmentation.

The Republican Party can no longer be considered a political vehicle capable of providing effective opposition to the far-left policies of the Democrat Party and the propaganda of the establishment media. It too has become a party of big government, which is unresponsive and unaccountable to its constituency.

As a recent example of the tyrannical approach and abuse of power practiced by the political elite, the Republicans have joined with the Democrats to force Obamacare on the American people while at the same time exempting themselves.

Bombshell Obama Vetting: 1979 Newspaper Article By Valerie Jarrett Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Muslim Purchase Of U.S. Presidency

Time to jump over to Pat Dollard and read your daily information folks.  This is… well, scary, but apparently what we’re up against in the world today.  Below is the link, and some of the text you will find there.

Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.” Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is. (Trivia: it is from this very quote that communist Van Jones takes his name. Van is short for vanguard. He was born “Anthony”). In addition, long before 1979, blacks had become the vanguard of the spread of Islam in America, especially in prisons.

Interestingly, in context with the fact that this article was written by her father-in-law, Valerie Jarrett has an unusual amount of influence over Obama (along with personal security that may be even better than his, another unusual and intriguing bit of business here). And equally interesting is that Obama, who may have been a beneficiary of this Muslim money, and may now be in this Muslim debt, has aggressively pursued both of the Muslim agendas I cited above. And, also equally interesting, is that Obama has paid a king’s ransom for court ordered seals of any such records of this potential financing of his college education, and perhaps, of other of his expenses.

Lastly, it’s very important to note that the main source for the article is Khalid Mansour, “the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.” (Valerie Jarrett, by the way, was born in Iran. The one country protected by Obama from the sweep of the Arab Spring.) Now all of this may seem sensational, but let’s face facts. What makes it most disturbing is that not only is it all logical, but it suddenly makes a lot of previously confusing things make perfect sense.Pat Dollard

Americans: Stand up and Resist!

I’m an American.  I was born in the USA.  Before me, my father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather, great-great-great-grandfather and several generations prior were also born here.

One of them came over on a ship from Ireland, another from Scotland.  Men before me have fought for this country from the Indian Wars to the Revolutionary War to the most recent wars in the Middle East.  My sons are Americans and Patriots.

The lie that “We are all immigrants” has been told so often that it’s now being believed.  Yes, my distant forefather DID come to America as an immigrant. A LEGAL Immigrant, albeit, forced to come here to find freedom from Oppression of the British Empire.

Today – illegal immigrants stream across the border in an effort to abuse our freedoms, to steal our tax monies and to commit crimes (illegal immigration, IS A CRIME).  There is no checks and balances any more.  Congress and the President do not want them.

Congress and the President don’t want us to defend ourselves.

The President has allowed agencies to spy on us, the DOJ to lie to us, to kill our own men by giving away guns to criminals, to kill our own military men, Navy Seals, to allow criminals and terrorists to kill our Ambassador and American heroes without investigation.

The current administration has worked to destroy the America my father, I and my children grew up in.

It is time to put a stop to the abuses of the American system, abuses to the American Taxpayer.  It is TIME to FIRE the current government and replace it non-Marxists, non-Socialists and non-Progressives.

A war has been declared on Patriots in America.  We’re now being labeled as terrorists and troublemakers, being called names like “Teabagger” (look that up) and worse.

Fight back.  Resist “Hope and Change”.  Resist Socialism, and Progressivism or suffer the long term consequences to this Great Nation.

Already the time is nearly past, and this country is nearly done.

Stand up and be heard!

Government control over all communications

This is an Alert to ALL Americans.  You are about to be shut down.  Everything.  Radio, television, Internet, Amateur Radio, CB, cell phones, and all communications available to citizens of this country.  Link and text follows.

Geolocate Dangerous Guns Answer to the Application

http://gungeomarker.org/

About the Gun Geo Marker

The Walkingtools Gun Geo Marker
The general guideline is that you should mark any location about which you have a gun related concern, while trying to provide enough extra information for others to make their own determination about safety.
An important secondary warning is that the Walkingtools Gun Geo Marker is not intended as a reporting mechanism for active threats. If you are concerned for anyone’s immediate safety, call 911 immediately.

Now…. far be it for me to make a suggestion as to how to deal with this particular application, or even to suggest that my suggestion might work.  But… I’ll give it a go.

All gun owners should download this App.  Immediately.

You can tag locations in it.

So, why not tag it with the following:

1) Anti-gun Libtards

2) Businesses that hate guns

3) Hollywood Actors and Actresses who speak out against guns.

4) Local politician’s homes who are anti-gun

5) Local Media personalities who are anti-gun.

 

The point to this is to make THOSE locations as “gun owners” and overwhelm the database with Garbage In, which in turn produces Garbage Out.

So, do your part today and help this Application “fill up some white space”.

 

America on the Abyss

On July 4th, tomorrow, America celebrates it’s Independence from Britain but we stand on the verge of destruction of this very country we all love.  From within.  From our own, overbearing, overreaching government.

There is not a Patriotic American within the sound of my voice, or with in reach of my writing who will not agree that this country is the Greatest Country that has ever existed, and almost every, single one of them, myself included would or have been willing to stand up to keep this country great.  Every one of us will fight to protect our country if it were invaded.  Every one of us has an opinion about how it should be run.  Almost none of us stand together on one, simple act – defiance of what is happening to us right now in this country.  Some shrug their shoulders and move on, some ignore the problem completely, some of us loudly, vocally proclaim the wrongs done but can’t fix it alone.

Unfortunately for Americans we are in the midst of what I called “The Throes of Progressive Tyranny”.  A few years ago I created a forum on our TAA web site to track the progress of Progressiveness and the Progressive Tyranny that is haunting this country, from the most basic precepts of “Political Correctness” to Nationalization of the Health Care system and everything in between.

On 20 January 2009, Barack Hussein Obama was innagurated as the 44th President, running on a platform of “Hope and Change”, talking about “Fundemental Change” in America.  Most of us saw this man then for what we now know he is.

On 14 December 2012, Adam Lanza is believed to have walked into a school (without any assistance) to shoot and kill twenty small children, babies really, and six adults.  Before that he killed his mother in cold blood while she was sleeping, took guys, put on military style armor and went to the school.  Immediately there were calls to ban guns.   Most of us saw this coming the moment we were learning children had died.

Obamacare, the so-called “Affordable Health Care Act” was “passed before we get to see what’s in it”…. Congress created, then opened Pandora’s Box.  (For the uneducated, who don’t know the story of Pandora, I’ll leave it to you to look it up….).  Everyone in the United States, no matter how naive they pretend to be grasped the ramifications of Nationalization of the Medical Care in America.

Then the media started breaking scandal after scandal.  Everything from “Project Gun Walker” to the NSA leaker Snowden letting the world know Americans were being spied upon by their own government.  The Justice Department investigating journalists as “terrorists”, spying on them, and entire news organizations, to lying through their teeth to cover their asses.

There is so much more that has gone against our very way of life, to coin a phrase, truth, justice and the American Way.  So much for Superman, huh?

Americans are just DAMNED sick and tired of being lied to.  They are damned tired of the Government getting into their business.  One could certainly compare 1775 and events leading up the American Revolutionary War with today.  In fact, one COULD sit and start writing down all of the abuses by this government against the people, starting with the very idea the government seems to have forgotten their place; that is that they work for us, we don’t belong to them.  Most of us are simply too lazy though to do ANYTHING about it.

Indeed this country stands on an abyss.  Tomorrow we celebrate, but who knows what happens next Monday?  I don’t.  Perhaps nothing will change, just status quo.  Sheep getting up and going to work, working their lives away to pay our debt to our great grandchildren.

Obama and his administration have certainly accomplished their “fundamental change” haven’t they?  Americas are about to be shepherded by the IRS to ensure they pay for their own health care.  We’ve had states ban our guns.  We’ve had police forces become military-strong.  We’ve been told where to go, when to go, how to go and by the way, don’t use Gas, Oil, Coal or any of that nasty carbon-producing-stuff that kills things.  Oh and if you don’t mind, just die you human because you eat, and excrete and make it bad for “Mother Gaia”.

The Abyss is… step up and stop the crimes against this country, or stand down and be a sheep.  Sheep eventually are sheared, and many are just led to slaughter.

Which will you stand up and be, sheep or Patriot?

 

Is America in a Pre-Revolutionary State this July 4th?

July 2nd, 2013 – 12:23 am

american_flag_crystal_ball_big_7-13-1

As we approach July 4, 2013, is America in a pre-revolutionary state? Are we headed for a Tahrir Square of our own with the attendant mammoth social turmoil, possibly even violence.

 Could it happen here?

We are two-thirds of the way into the most incompetent presidency in our history. People everywhere are fed up. Even many of the so-called liberals who propelled Barack Obama into office have stopped defending him in the face of an unprecedented number of scandals coming at us one after the other like hideous monsters in some non-stop computer game.

And now looming is the monster of monsters, ObamaCare, the healthcare reform almost no one wanted and fewer understood.

It will be administered by the Internal Revenue Service, an organization that has been revealed to be a kind of post-modern American Gestapo, asking not just to examine our accounting books but the books we read. What could be more totalitarian than that?

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal warns the costs of ObamaCare are close to tripling what were promised, and the number of doctors in our country is rapidly diminishing. No more “My son, the doctor!” It doesn’t pay.

And young people most of all will not be able to afford escalating health insurance costs and will end up paying the fine to the IRS, simultaneously bankrupting the health system and enhancing the brutal power of the IRS — all this while unemployment numbers remain near historical highs.

Rural Colorado counties threaten secession, formation of 51st state

Rural counties threaten secession, formation of 51st state

10:33 PM, Jun 6, 2013

FORT COLLINS – One corner of rural Colorado is so fed up with the leftward lurch of our state that county leaders are talking secession by creating the 51st state.

Weld County Commissioners say other leaders in northeastern Colorado are ready to go with them, citing concerns that they are being ignored on issues like energy and agriculture.

“Our very way of life is under attack,” Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway said on Thursday.

The Republican says Wednesday’s signing of Senate Bill 252 by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, which critics say would increase rates for only rural Colorado while at the same time promoting renewable energy, was the last straw.

“That is a direct assault on rural Colorado,” Weld County Commissioner Mike Freeman said.

At a recent meeting of county commissioners from all over the state, Conway says roughly 10 counties warmed to the idea of a petition to create a new state.

 

http://www.9news.com/news/local/article/340031/346/Rural-Colorado-counties-pursue-split-from-state

 

By the way, the article is incorrect.  If some counties want “out” it doesn’t require the Governor, state legislature OR the Congress (especially NOT Congress’ permission) to leave.

NSA snoops, IRS dupes, Holder Loops and Obama Poops

After thirty seven years of working in, around and for the government I’ve decided that this is NOT what I signed up for.

 

We have Eric Holder lying to the public and Congress.

We have the National Security Agency spying on not just bad guys, but all of our emails, pictures, calls, or whatever other data you put out there.  That’s great perhaps they will read THIS message.

We have the IRS preventing, in a most political manner, Conservative groups from getting their tax exempt status to PREVENT them from fighting the powers that be.

We have Obama.  Need I say more?

 

Americans, it is time to STOP this intrusion into our privacy, it’s time to stop Obama from becoming a third world dictator, it’s time to stop the IRS and the Justice Department from over reaching, over arching and from being the “police arm” of the United States Government.

Now I know that there is one and only one job our government is SUPPOSED to be doing, and that is protecting this country from outside enemies and they AREN’T EVEN DOING THAT right.  The military has been cut drastically (which China, Russia have grown, Iran is producing nuclear weapons, DPRK is producing nukes and the Muslim world is coddled).  Our injured and wounded are treated like crap when they come back from “Fighting for Freedom”.  That’s another joke.

They aren’t fighting for OUR freedoms any more, they are fighting (without their knowledge) for the Freedom of Big Government to continue it’s oppression of the people of the United States of the America.  WE THE PEOPLE.

We are the people who OWN this country.  The Government doesn’t “own” anything.

Get ON the phone with your Congress people and tell them to STOP THIS CRAP NOW or the American people will stop it.

This is NOT a police state, we do not live in 1960s Soviet Union – this is the United States of America.

To all you so-called Liberals out there;  don’t sit on your asses any longer and whine about “Republicans” and “Tea Party”.  We’re all the same.  This is NOT a “Progressive” country (and Progressive is a Code Word for Communist) so get off your asses and get into this and STOP IT.

You Liberals seems to think your precious Freedom of Speech is protected while my Right to keep and bear arms is not.  We’ve said over and over without the Second, you don’t get to keep the First.  Are you starting to GRASP this yet?  If you’re not, shut up, don’t vote, and don’t talk; go sit in your living room and watch television so you can be further brain washed.

If We the People ALLOW this to go any further you can kiss your precious Bill of Rights good bye completely.

Now, in case you really just don’t get this, let me explain something.

Pulling phone and data records (by the NSA) for basically EVERYONE in America is wrong on many, many levels.  In the USA you are INNOCENT until proved Guilt.

Thus if they THINK you are guilty, great they can look at your stuff to prove your guilt.

They CAN NOT under any circumstances look at everyone’s records and dig through them until they FIND something that MIGHT be a pointer to guild.  This is the Thought Police on a scale you can’t imagine.

 

Essentially what is happening here with the Justice Department (with the phone records) and the NSA (with all the other stuff) is that they are digging through every record looking for ANYTHING that might be “bad” (What ever their idea of “bad” is – and keep this part in mind).  When they find something “bad” they connect some links, look at other records and make a “tree” of who is connected to whom, where they live, who they are, how much they make, what they look at on the Internet, who they call, what they buy and where they go for vacation.

There are those who would say “I’m not doing anything wrong, why should *I* care?” – and in truth in a perfect world with a perfect government and perfect people this would be right.  But it’s blatantly obvious to anyone who hasn’t been living in a cave in the lower Himalayas that OUR government is less than perfect.

If on the other hand you’re like me, and millions of others and like “guns” and are a “conservative” and believe in smaller government, certain principles and just want to be left alone we become “targets” for an oppressive government looking at everything we do; and while what we do isn’t wrong, it could be considered “bad” by this particular Administration and obviously HAS been considered so.  Look at all the groups shut down by the IRS because they were doing nothing more than what the Liberal groups were doing…. but were CONSERVATIVE, or TEA PARTY, or for LIBERTY, or SMALLER GOVERNMENT.

If 100% of the people out there are completely outraged over all of this, then the small percentage NOT outraged must be part of the problem.

It’s time for them to go.  It’s time for Congressmen and women, President, Justice Department officials, IRS officials and anyone else who seems to think they “Control America” to get OUT of Office and be put in prison.

I’m calling for the arrest of all of those people.  There are still a few good men and women in Congress and in the Government.  They need to stand up, be heard and shut down the corruption and oppression in America.

This is NOT Russia.  This is NOT China.  Big Government is BAD, VERY VERY BAD.  This has to stop.

Are we under attack?

Seriously now, what’s happening?  There were several other “bomb” incidents around the country, calls of bombs and even here where I live they had to pull the military bomb squad in for something last night (I haven’t gotten details yet).

 

Personally, I think this is Iranian cells inside the country….

Is Occupy Wall Street crowd behind the bombing in Boston?

I dunno, I just thought I’d lay the blame at their feet.

In the past few months several of them have been arrested for making bombs (here and here) and yet the first thing the Communist supporting Left Wing Progressive Lame Stream Media does is BLAME someone on the Right, calling them “Right Wing Extremists” and claiming it’s because it was “Patriot’s Day”.

What a load of BULLSHIT.

I think anyone who is in the media that put that theory forward, especially since their favorite President Hussein Obama the illegal alien, Muslim, Marxist commie asshole asked people “not to jump to conclusions”.

I believe this was OWS, and their radical Anarchists buddies, Marxist creeps and was funded by the US Government.

 

(There… enough blame to go around.  Now, let me point out that I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I can make up shit just like the media can).

Gold Crash?

It appears that gold has taken a tumble since Friday. As of about an hour ago, gold prices have fallen by more than $90 USD.

Apparently there’s a bit of a panic

Investors are bailing out…

here’s a chart to check out…

https://i2.wp.com/static.cdn-seekingalpha.com/uploads/2013/4/15/6932-13660279206044002-George-Kesarios_origin.png

Now, I don’t collect, buy, sell or save gold.  I put my money in the mattress (and a few low interest bearing accounts).  I’m not trying to make massive amounts of money, I ain’t “rich” and don’t give a shit how the market goes usually.  But I have a lot of friends who have started buying gold – against MY better advice (remember, buy LOW, sell HIGH) and gold has been steadily increasing in cost for the past few years (which is great for those who got in on the ground floor).

For those who just started in the last few months or couple of years… well, sorry, you’re about to see a “correction” methinks.

Personally, my “precious metals” are brass, copper and lead, and investments in minerals like sulfur, charcoal and potassium nitrates…. I’d urge you all to invest in those things and stop worrying so much about gold, silver and the stock market.

Pew: Americans Think U.S. Should Take North Korea’s Nuclear Threat ‘Very Seriously’

And then there is this… which I think is accurate.  Most people won’t take this klown seriously (me either for that matter, but….)

 

A majority of Americans believe their government should be treating the nuclear threats being levied by North Korea “very seriously,” according to new findings from Pew Research Center released Tuesday.

Fifty-six percent said the U.S. should treat North Korea’s threats to use nuclear missiles against the U.S. “very seriously,” while more than a quarter said the government should be taking the threats “somewhat seriously.” A mere 14 percent said the threats should be taken “not too seriously” or “not at all seriously.” Forty-seven percent said they believe North Korea has the capability of firing a nuclear missile that can reach the United States, a perception that runs counter to the recent assessment of South Korea’s defense chief. Another plurality of 47 percent said they think North Korea is willing to make good on their threats to launch a nuclear strike on America.

Yellow ALERT! US raises nuclear alert to DEFCON 3

I’ll take this with a grain of salt for now until I can verify it myself.  I do know that alerts have been raised though in the last few hours.  Not sure why yet…

 

EDIT: Ok, the “Watchcon” system is at Level 2 right now.

South Korean and US force have heightened their alert status in the belief that North Korea intends to initiate a missile launch in the very near future. The US-South Korean Combined Forces Command (CFC) raised their Watch Condition, commonly known as “Watchcon,” from Level 3 to Level 2 indicating that a vital threat exists. The lowest alert status used by CFC is Watchcon 4 in effect in normal peacetime situations, Watchcon 3 is ordered when an important threat exists, and Watchcon 1 is reserved for wartime conditions. The Watchcon system deals only with surveillance preparedness and is separate from the Defense Condition (Defcon) alert system.

Latest intelligence indicates that the North Korean People’s Army (KPA) has completed preparations for multiple missile launches that might include short-range Scuds, medium-range Rodong-1s, and the new intermediate-range BM25 Musudan missiles. No evidence has been uncovered to indicate the Taepodong-2 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) have been readied for launching.

We are “not at war” but in a readiness state indicating that war is imminent.   And I also have this: http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/1754700/N-Korea-crisis-could-be-uncontrollable-UN

South Korean and US forces have raised their alert status to “vital threat” ahead of an expected North Korean missile test.

The North last week told foreign diplomats in Pyongyang they had until April 10 to consider evacuation, fuelling speculation of a launch between Wednesday and April 15 birthday celebrations for late founder Kim Il-Sung.

It could also coincide with high-profile visits by US Secretary of State John Kerry and NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who will both be in Seoul on Friday.

South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-Se told parliament the launch could take place “anytime” and warned Pyongyang it risked triggering a fresh round of UN sanctions.

South Korean intelligence says the North has prepared two mid-range missiles for imminent launch from its east coast, despite warnings from ally China to avoid provocative moves at a time of soaring military tensions.

On Tuesday the North reiterated a warning that the peninsula was headed for “thermonuclear” war and advised foreigners to consider leaving South Korea.

The South Korea-US Combined Forces Command raised its “Watchcon” status from 3 to 2 to reflect indications of a “vital threat”, Yonhap news agency said, citing a senior military official.

US raises nuclear alert to DEFCON 3. China mobilizes, masses troops on North Korean border

DEBKAfile Special Report April 12, 2013, 8:59 AM (GMT+02:00)

US nuclear alert DEFCON 3
US nuclear alert DEFCON 3

Friday, April 12, the US raised its nuclear alert status to DEFCON 3, Condition Yellow (out of 5 levels), stating “There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time, however the situation is considered fluid and can change rapidly.” Many believe that North Korea will launch their test missile on or about April 15. Japan has instructed its armed forces to shoot down any North Korean missile that heads toward its territory.

==========

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DEFCON

The five DEFCONs, their exercise terms, and their general descriptions are shown below.[2][3][5]

Defense condition Exercise term Description Readiness Color
DEFCON 1 COCKED PISTOL[3] Nuclear war is imminent Maximum readiness      White
DEFCON 2 FAST PACE[3] Next step to nuclear war Armed Forces ready to deploy and engage in less than 6 hours      Red
DEFCON 3 ROUND HOUSE[3] Increase in force readiness above that required for normal readiness Air Force ready to mobilize in 15 minutes      Yellow
DEFCON 4 DOUBLE TAKE[3] Increased intelligence watch and strengthened security measures Above normal readiness      Green
DEFCON 5 FADE OUT[3] Lowest state of readiness Normal readiness      Blue

Movies and popular culture often misuse the DEFCON system by “going to DEFCON 5” during a state of emergency.[6] In fact, DEFCON 5 is the lowest state of readiness. The highest state, DEFCON 1, has never been called for.

North Korea: Nuclear tipped missile capable

Apparently yesterday a “classified” document some how became “unclassified” and was released to the news.

The assessment’s existence was disclosed Thursday by Representative Doug Lamborn, Republican of Colorado, three hours into a budget hearing of the House Armed Services Committee with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey. General Dempsey declined to comment on the assessment because of classification issues.

But late Thursday, the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., released a statement saying that the assessment did not represent a consensus of the nation’s intelligence community and that “North Korea has not yet demonstrated the full range of capabilities necessary for a nuclear armed missile.”  (New York Slimes.. er, Times)

Now, given they have not “demonstrated the full range of capabilities” for a nuclear armed missile, one w0nders if perhaps these comments by Clapper aren’t perhaps also a “little under demonstration level”.  Clapper is one of those guys who seems to couch everything he says in ass kissing Obama, or making America seem weak.  I don’t get why we put people like this in places like, oh, I don’t know DIRECTOR of CIA.

ABC News says:

The Defense Intelligence Agency has concluded with “moderate confidence” that North Korea might have a nuclear weapon that’s small enough to be placed on a ballistic missile. But the DIA also says that if that is the case, the reliability of the missile would be low.

The alarming assessment came as North Korea has been issuing threats that range from testing a new missile to nuclear war against the U.S. and South Korea.

It was made public near the end of a House Armed Services Committee in which Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey were testifying about the proposed Pentagon budget.

Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., asked Dempsey if he agreed with a recent classified DIA report that contained an unclassified section that said, “DIA assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles. However, the reliability will be low.” Dempsey eventually admitted he had not seen this report so he couldn’t answer the congressman’s question.

By the way, this unclassified-classified document is apparently still classified in its entirety….

Pentagon press secretary George Little said: ‘While I cannot speak to all the details of a report that is classified in its entirety, it would be inaccurate to suggest that the North Korean regime has fully tested, developed or demonstrated the kinds of nuclear capabilities referenced” in Mr Lamborn’s remarks.

‘The United States continues to closely monitor the North Korean nuclear programme and calls upon North Korea to honour its international obligations,’ Mr Little added.

Our intelligence collection resources, now limited since Bill Clinton, forces us to count on technological assets (satellites, Internet, spy planes – which we don’t even have any m0re) and since there is almost no HUMINT availability in many areas of the world we are having to count on what we can “see” through other means than eyeballs.

My personal opinion…. I don’t think our intelligence community KNOWS anything.  They are GUESSING.

Live tracking North Korean Satellite

EDIT:  Satellite about to pass over central US.  If they haven’t launched the two missiles off their coast yet, then things are going to be normal the rest of today.
The next pass puts the satellite over Alberta Canada and Washington State, then out to the Pacific….

Things about to go hot…..

http://n2yo.com/?s=39026

This is the tracking of the Korean Satellite.

It is coming over Greenland right now and will travel over the DC area, NYC etc shortly

Next pass in about 90 minutes or so will put it over the center of the USA, Minn, then Nebraska and Kansas.

Optimum location for an EMP strike.

By the way, I am told by several news sources that the two missiles DPRK is choosing to launch are now standing in an upright position and ready for launch….

Is the world getting ready for a nuclear conflict?

The other day I posted a conspiracy-minded message…. because frankly I pay a LOT of attention to other countries like Russia, China, North Korea and the rest of the Trans-Asian Axis and there is more going on than most people ever pay attention to in the world.

In the past week the Chinese moved large numbers of troops along the northern border of North Korea.

North Korea has been stirring the pot, constantly for weeks, threatening nuclear war, posting images of Washington burning (we could only be so lucky) and in general keeping tensions high on the Korean Peninsula.

The Russians, in addition to claiming the US is causing provocation, they have been loudly proclaiming they will protect North Korea, Putin made a comment yesterday that an “incident” in Korea would “make Chernobyl look like a fairy tale”.   In the last 24 hours, the Soviets… er… I mean “The Russians” have been running ICBM drills. A couple of days ago they were flying Backfire bombers around Guam, doing practice runs on US Missile Defense assets.

A couple of days ago the US canceled a missile test,  so, you know, we won’t provoke anyone…

Today I read we grounded more US military aircraft due to the so-called budget cuts (which we know there are no cuts, in fact the newest “budget” contains a trillion in spending…).

In all seriousness here, tensions are high over Korea.  The Russians and Chinese are pushing the envelop to the very limit, and North Korea is rattling its saber for a reason.  No Dong Un – I mean Kim Jong-Un can’t win a war with the United States, and probably couldn’t win one against South Korea or Japan.  He’s constantly (if not him, previously it was his father) blackmailing the United States with these impotent threats.  The Korean Klown is merely shaking the hornet’s nest to piss off the bees.  Eventually, he will get stung.

Since he isn’t, I don’t think all that stupid regardless of his age, he is doing this at the behest of someone else.  He knows that if he launches a missile and it goes errant, or flies over Japane or South Korea, or flies in the direction of Guam that it will ultimately be shot down.  Then he will sink another ship.  And escalate this to the point of no return.

He absolutely is counting on China’s protection and Russia’s backing when his ass gets burned he’ll run to Mother Russia or Father China asking for his wounds to be kissed; and for revenge.  And he will get it from those countries too.

All this is leading up to something… something will snap eventually.

Do you anti-gun people honestly want Americans to be disarmed?  Really?

ALERT! Congressional Vote on Gun Bills on Thursday

Matt Bracken gave me the heads up on this on Facebook last night.    Here’s the link to the Levin show:
http://www.marklevinshow.com/Article.asp?id=2638971&spid=32345

Just in case there is ANY doubt about this…

The Second Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights does NOT GIVE us our rights, it AFFIRMS them and that Congress and no man can take them FROM us. No man includes the President, the Congress or the Supreme Court. no MAN, no Government may touch those rights.

This “vote” to get this bill through Congress (across a hurdle) is NOT CONSTITUTIONAL.

Congress needs to understand that we WILL NOT ALLOW THIS.

This is the LAST CHANCE we have to tell them in writing, before the bullets start flying guys.

Some fucking RINOS are voting with them. Eight Republicans. I don’t know WHO said they would vote with them, but trying to find out right now. Either way we have to get to these people before tomorrow.

Folks, this is absolutely beyond the pale.

The Second Amendment is what protects our entire existence.  Without it, America IS NO MORE.  The Liberals and Progressives KNOW this and they are doing everything in their power right now, short of rounding up each and everyone one of us and putting us in prison or executing us (because they KNOW we would fight back).  When they “legally” ban guns, eviscerate the Second Amendment the rest of the Constitution will be completely null and void at their whim.

This crap stops.  Now.  Get on the phone, flood Congress with calls.  TODAY.  Don’t argue with me about how it won’t work, they don’t listen, and all that other lame assed bullshit I hear so much.

Get ON THE PHONE AND CALL THE CAPITOL.  Tell them “Gun Owners WILL GO TO WAR over this.”  Make this CLEAR to them.  We will no sit by any longer.  Don’t threaten anyone, just make it absolutely CLEAR to the Congressional offices you call that they have overstepped their bounds.  We must stand united.

Or as Franklin put it, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”.

Defensive Survival

Indeed. I’ve been trying to teach this to people for years. I still get blank stares and remarks like “What? That’s NOT going to happen” and “I’ll be just fine until the power comes back on, then I’ll go get gas, go shopping and it will be just like always”. Keep believing that sheep….

rmactsc

There are three kinds of people in the world today.  Those who are predators, those who are prey and those who refuse to be either.  In order to survive in today’s world or any type of post apocalyptic world of the future; you must inwardly develop a warrior spirit, a mindset that says I refuse to be a victim.  Everyone must fight for something at some point in their lives and it is imperative that when these encounters take place; that you emerge victorious.

Nobody can tell you what your threat will look like; but when a threat attacks, you must be prepared physically, mentally and emotionally to defend yourself.  If something looks wrong or feels wrong then it is wrong.  Don’t ignore that inner sixth sense that warns you of impending danger.  Remember the rule of three M’s. 1 – Maximize your distance to the threat.  2 – Minimize…

Common Sense Survival

Read and heed….

rmactsc

When it comes to any type of TEOTWAWKI (The end of the world as we know it) survival situations, there are some common sense survival tactics that everyone should be aware of.

  • Survival requires proper planning, a proper mindset and good gear.
  • Food, water, guns, ammo and other necessary survival gear should be already stocked before a survival situation occurs.
  • Avoid dehydration and starvation at all costs.
  • Have a secure, well stocked, defendable location available.
  • Firearms and knives for defensive purposes are essential.
  • Avoid strange, dangerous areas and strange, dangerous people.
  • Crowds can quickly turn violent and can get you killed.
  • Light and noise discipline when appropriate is essential.
  • People will fight over scant resources.
  • Thugs will try and take what you have.
  • Martial law is always bad.
  • People who thought you were nuts for prepping when times were good will start showing up on  your doorstep when times are bad. 
  • Never show weakness.
  • You…
