Massive fire in Queens

October 30, 2012

Superstorm Sandy: Massive Fire Destroys 50 Homes In Flooded Queens Neighborghood

NEW YORK: A huge fire that erupted as Sandy ripped through New York City with near-hurricane force winds on Monday night destroyed dozens of homes in one of the city’s most remote neighborhoods, officials said.

The neighborhood, Breezy Point in the borough of Queens, had been extensively flooded by Sandy’s record storm surge, and firefighters were hampered in their efforts to bring the blaze under control, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department said.

No casualties were immediately reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.

A tweet from the FDNY’s official Twitter feed said 50 or more homes were destroyed in the fire. The fire still was not under control by 5 am (0900 GMT), the department said.

Local television showed firefighters wading through waist-deep water to get to the massive fire. Some used inflatable boats to reach it.

*Massive Explosion At NY Power Plant : Caught On CCTV

New York faces the prospect of being without power for a week today after Superstorm Sandy caused mass blackouts and triggered a series of explosions.

In total, more than six million Americans across the Eastern Seaboard have been affected after the devastation wreaked by Superstorm Sandy caused power cuts on an unprecedented scale.

In New York City alone, more than 250,000 residents are without power after an explosion at a Manhattan power plant.
Around 50,000 power outages in downtown Manhattan in Battery Park and the Financial District were part of a planned cut and will take around three days to restore, but much of the damage was caused by the explosion at the 14th street power station and will take up to a week to repair.

‘Welcome to the Reservation’

October 30, 2012

Russell Means: Welcome To The Reservation

American Indian Russell Means gives an eye-opening 90 minute interview in which he explains how Native Americans and Americans in general are all imprisoned within one huge reservation. Means is a leader for the Republic of Lakotah, a movement that has declared its independence from the United States and refused to recognize the authority of presidents or governments, withdrawing from treaties it made with the federal government and defining its borders which cover thousands of square miles in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana.

Means explains how American Indians have been enslaved within de facto prisoner of war camps as a result of the federal government’s restriction of their food supply and the application of colonial tactics, a process that has now also been inflicted on the United States as a whole which has turned into, “one huge Indian reservation,” according to Means.

*You don’t have to have missed a payment now for the banks to STEAL your property! They are doing it through “Appraisals”!

The criminal banks are now stealing people’s properties who have never been late on a payment! How? Through “appraisals”! They are requiring homeowners and commercial property owners have new appraisals. When those appraisals (in cohorts with the appraisers in getting them low) come back lower than the loan amount, at the property owners expense.

They give the property owner 30 days to pay the difference of loan to value of the property otherwise they take over the property and kick the owners out! They are doing it to homeowners and commercial property owners!

*Silver Bullet & Silver Shield Medallion

The Elite that control our reality don’t really care what we do or say, so long as we do not threaten the root of their power. We have to hack at the root. We must realize that we empower those that seek to enslave us with generational debt by voting for the lesser of two evils, by going into debt, by keeping our money in their banking system, by signing military contracts for service, by buying their corporate goods. In short, we empower them. You cannot beg for power, you simply must walk away from the toxic relationship and become independently powerful ourselves.

Gary Glitter arrested in Savile-BBC scandal

Gary Glitter arrested in Savile-BBC scandal

One-time British pop star Gary Glitter was arrested as part of an investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by the late BBC presenter Jimmy Savile, the BBC has said.

Sunday’s arrest was the first to be reported in a scandal that has already damaged the reputation of the publicly funded BBC and the legacy of Savile, a former DJ who was one of the broadcaster’s top show hosts and a dedicated charity fundraiser.

The head of the BBC’s governing body said on Sunday the broadcaster’s reputation was on the line, and promised to get to the bottom of the scandal.

A police statement said a man in his 60s had been picked up just after 0700 GMT on suspicion of sexual offences in the investigation into “Savile and others”.

The statement did not name the man and a spokesman declined further comment.

The BBC and Sky News identified the man picked up from his London home as Glitter, a 68-year-old who was popular as a glam-rock singer in the 1970s. Footage on both broadcasters showed Glitter, who was not handcuffed, leaving an apartment in central London and being driven away.

9/11 changing history again?

Ed Klein: Bill Clinton ‘Urging’ Hillary to Release Benghazi Documents That Would ‘Exonerate’ Her

*Joe Biden to Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Benghazi: ‘Did Your Son Always Have Balls the Size of Cue Balls?’

“You released the information that the White House within minutes of the attack, watched in real time the events unfolding,” Woods told Beck earlier in the program. “They denied the pleas for help and they watched my son die.”

Woods went on to read the following statement, in honor of his son:

“I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help and voluntarily sacrificed his life to protect the lives of other Americans. In the last few days it has become public knowledge that within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied. Apparently, C-130s were ready to respond immediately. In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision. This has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with integrity and honor. My son was a true American hero. We need more heroes today. My son showed moral courage. This is an opportunity for the person or persons who made the decision to sacrifice my son’s life to stand up.”

Population control through nuclear pollution

October 26, 2012

With a foreword by Paul R. Erlich, author of: The Population Bomb

Hardcover: 242 pages
Publisher: Nelson-Hall Co; First edition (November 27, 1970)

(Amazon)

I couldn’t find an excerpt from the book, so here’s some info on John W. Gofman:

John William Gofman (September 21, 1918 – August 15, 2007) was an American scientist and advocate. He was Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology at University of California at Berkeley. Some of his early work was on the Manhattan Project, and he shares patents on the fissionability of uranium-233 as well as on early processes for separating plutonium from fission products. Dr. Gofman later worked in medicine and led the team that discovered and characterized lipoproteins in the causation of heart disease. In 1963, he established the Biomedical Research Division for the Livermore National Laboratory, where he was on the cutting edge of research into the connection between chromosomal abnormalities and cancer.

Later in life, he took on a role as an advocate warning of dangers involved with nuclear power. From 1971 onward, he was the Chairman of the Committee for Nuclear Responsibility. He also described himself a libertarian and spoke at several events sponsored by the Students for a Libertarian Society in 1979 and 1980. He was awarded the Right Livelihood Award for his work on the effects of the Chernobyl disaster’s low-level radiation exposure on the population. John Gofman died of heart failure on August 15, 2007 in his home in San Francisco.

Turkish gold via Dubai to Iran

Exclusive: Turkish gold trade booms to Iran, via Dubai

(Reuters) – To see one of Iran’s financial lifelines at work, pay a visit to Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport and find a gate for a flight to Dubai.

Couriers carrying millions of dollars worth of gold bullion in their luggage have been flying from Istanbul to Dubai, where the gold is shipped on to Iran, according to industry sources with knowledge of the business.

The sums involved are enormous. Official Turkish trade data suggests nearly $2 billion worth of gold was sent to Dubai on behalf of Iranian buyers in August. The shipments help Tehran manage its finances in the face of Western financial sanctions.

“Hillary never sweats”

Badass Hillary Never … Sweats?

The secretary of state doesn’t sweat, according to a reporter from Condé Nast Traveler who went to Asia with her. “No matter how high the heat, not a drop nor a drip nor a bead nor so much as the faintest glisten can be detected anywhere about her person,” writes Kevin Doyle.

*Syria: car bomb kills 10 in Christian quarter of Damascus

“Terrorists are doing this,” said George, a Christian who, like many residents in Bab Touma lives in fear of the rebel fighters trying to gain control of the capital.

Encircled by thick rock historic city walls, the narrow alleyways and wooden roofed Damascene homes of the Old City had thus far remained largely insulated from the fighting that has reached the capital in recent months.

Hotels in the Old City are filled with Syrian citizens who fled their homes and had come to the area to seek shelter, said George.

Khartoum fire blamed on Israeli bombing

Sudan has accused Israel of bombing a military arms factory, threatening retaliation after a resulting fire killed two people and injured a third.

“We think Israel did the bombing,” Culture and Information Minister Ahmed Bilal Osman told a news conference.

“We reserve the right to react at a place and time we choose.”

The minister said four “radar-evading” aircraft were involved in the attack, which occurred at about midnight (2100 GMT) on Tuesday at the Yarmouk military manufacturing facility in south Khartoum. It took troops several hours to contain the blaze.

Evidence pointing to Israel was found among remnants of undetonated missiles, Osman told Al Jazeera.
