Worth your time….
Make no mistake, because of the social media environment that we live in, the vast majority of so-called journalists no longer report the news, but prosecute the news.
When a news story uses sources close to the investigation, this could easily be the physical distance between the reader and the investigator. For example, I live in Texas. A homeless person on the street in Washington D.C. is a lot closer to a federal investigation than I am; thus, this could be ‘the source’ close to the investigation.
When one reads, hears, or watches a news report, think of the following:
- Identify the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and WHY of the story.
- Who ULTIMATELY benefits from a story – On the surface, this may be easy; however, this can be the hardest.
- Remove opinions and hearsay (Unnamed or Biased Sources )
- What is the motive of the news source? Look at…

In a disturbing development, a package believed to be headed for Austin, Texas exploded at a FedEx facility in Schertz, Texas – a suburb of San Antonio that’s roughly a 60 mile drive from the state capitol, the Washington Post reported.
The FBI told CBS that it’s “more than possible” the blast is linked to the recent ones in Austin before law enforcement sources confirmed it.

Did you know?
Detractors of the Second Amendment scoff at the idea of government tyranny.
Ask them if they have heard of the “Battle of Athens, TN” in August, 1946.
The local government rigged elections and deprived citizens of the right to vote.
The result was armed conflict and a dynamited jail / courthouse.
Don’t debate whether it can happen, explain that it already has.

Seattle Times, Oct 9, 2017 (emphasis added): Scientists survey Pacific Northwest salmon each year. For the first time, some nets are coming up empty — Scientists have been hauling survey nets through the ocean off the coasts of Washington and Oregon for 20 years. But this is the first time some have come up empty… In a report on their trawl survey, the scientists logged some of the lowest numbers of yearling Snake River spring chinook recorded since the survey began in 1998. Coho numbers were just as depressed… This year’s bizarre survey results all started with The Blob… [NOAA’s David] Huff said the purpose of a memo the research team wrote to managers about their survey results was intended to provide an early warning of how poor and just plain strange conditions in the ocean off Washington and Oregon’s coasts are…

Toronto Star, Aug 27, 2017 (emphasis added): Canadian engineer Raihan Khondker said his family safely left their home in southeastern Texas, but he was forced to return to the Bay City area as part of a support team at a nuclear power plant. For three days, Khondker, who is from Toronto, has been working tirelessly to manage “one thing after another,” driving through water-choked streets to bring supplies to engineers at the plant who are running out of food. Khondker said houses in his neighbourhood have been turned “upside down,” and rising waters in a nearby river threatens to send a potentially catastrophic flood into the area. “Every single creek in the neighbourhood is full,” he said. “There is an imminent flood coming to Bay City, we just don’t know how much water we are going to see.”

Federal government agencies are preparing for the possibility of “widespread power outages” across the U.S. as a result of a “black sky” event that could “bring society to its knees”.
An exercise sponsored by FEMA and the U.S. Department of Energy set to take place on August 23 called EarthEX2017 will wargame responses to catastrophes such as mega earthquakes, cyber terrorism or high altitude electromagnetic pulse attacks.
The exercise will simulate a “subcontinent-scale, long duration power outage, with cascading failures of all other infrastructures,” according to the official Earth Ex website.
“Black sky events” are defined as, “Catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees.”
“Cars would have no fuel. Restaurants and grocery stores would be bare. Electricity could be out for months in such an event,” writes Mike Vasilinda.
Given the soaring tensions between the United States and North Korea, which has threatened…

If Yellowstone erupted… what would be left?
YELLOWSTONE volcano has been struck by 1,400 earthquakes in recent weeks, leading to fears that the supervolcano is ready to blow and WIPE OUT life on Earth.
Seismic activity around the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, US, is not uncommon, but the heaviest swarm in half a decade has people very concerned.
Since June 12, there has been over 1,400 tremors in the region, and experts state that the swarm could go on for another month.
The Yellowstone Caldera supervolcano last erupted 70,000 years ago but a spike in seismic activity around the national park has unsettled nerves.
If the Wyoming volcano were to erupt it would kill an estimated 87,000 people immediately and make two-thirds of the USA immediately uninhabitable. The as the large spew of ash into the atmosphere would block out sunlight and directly affect life beneath it creating a…
