Facebook has blocked the broadcaster Russia Today from posting on their own Facebook page, which according to an RT spokesperson: ‘is to prevent Russia Today from streaming the inauguration of President Elect Donald Trump.’

It has been alleged by various mass media outlets that a dispute (over a supposed copyright violation) has arisen because the broadcaster had ‘livestreamed outgoing President Obama’s final press conference’.

Video screened from the White House is ordinarily copyright free, and it is unknown at this point who the complainant was or what reason was given when it was made.

The Russian broadcaster cannot post any media or links onto it’s Facebook page until the conclusion of the inauguration ceremony at least, although it is believed that the ban is temporary, and there are immediate steps being taken to get the suspension lifted in order to cover at least some of the ceremony.

It has long been believed that Internet services like Google, AOL, Yahoo, Facebook, MSN, Twitter and many others have given the Security Services of the US Government free access to their user databases, Microsoft were the first to do so in 2006 …. so is this freezing out of a Russian-Centric media outlet, only the start of a wider-ranging clampdown on the censoring of what has been until now, freely-available information?

Especially if it conflicts with what the established order wants you to see and therefore believe what is really going on, and more importantly …. Is it also restricting free speech and ultimately, the reporting of the truth?

2016 was officially the year of the ‘Snowflake’….

It was also the year of Brexit in the UK, the beginning of the end of the European Union, and the year in which Americans voted for the wildest wildcard in political history, Donald J Trump –  to be their next President.

It was also the year in which two new words were introduced into the English language – Remoaner’ and ‘Brexiteer’.

It was a year that saw the unprecedented rise of the ‘Alt-Right’ and the far right in world politics, (mainly down to the selective blindness, deafness and sheer ineptitude of the left), and the word ‘Racist’  was second only toSelfie’ in the amount of times it was used by the mass media and heard on the streets of both Britain and America.

It was also the year in which mainstream politics moved so close to the centre ground, that anyone who dared speak the truth about what was happening in their own countries, or asked questions of establishment policy …. became a ‘Nazi’.

It was the year in which ‘Safe Spaces’ and ‘Trigger Words’ replaced reasoned debate and grown-up discussion in Colleges and Universities around the world, and it was the year that North Korea claimed to have tested a thermonuclear weapon.

It was the year in which more than 1,000,000 three day emergency food parcels were distributed to people in acute crisis in the UK, and also the year in which 961,000 British households had assets worth more than £1M, excluding property and luxury goods.

It was the year we heard that global spending on aid and development increased by 7%, and spending on refugees had doubled, while the number of children in poverty in the UK jumped by 200,000.

It was also the year in which a report was published by a charity stating that the world’s 62 richest people were as wealthy as the rest of the worlds population.

It was the year that brought us #pizzagate and #twittergate, and the #Twitterstorm, and proved beyond all doubt that the mainstream mass media (and a large proportion of the so-called ‘Alternative Media’) could not be trusted …. and that exit polls were in fact …. Shit.

It was the year in which Israel revealed that it now makes 55% of it’s own freshwater, meaning that one of the driest countries on Earth now has more water than it needs, while a water crisis threatens 35,000 Palestinians, of which, half are children.

It was also the year in which 50 Celebrities’ and/or public figures passed away, and are publicaly mourned worldwide, while 55.3 Million other folk slipped away quietly, almost unnoticed, (as they do every year).

I could go on but you get the picture by now I am sure ….

So have a really great, happy and productive New Year and try not to forget to prepare for a 2017 where anything could happen –  and where absolutely nothing should be ruled out.

The Outlaw will leave 2016 behind, with a reminder of the words of Confucius when he attempted to give his opinions and teachings, greater gravity and wider acceptance:

“I do not create; I merely pass on the collected wisdom of those who have gone before.”

Since August 2011, Maricona County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Mike Zullo, a member of the Sheriff’s Office’s Cold Case Team, have been working on a digital document, which was presented to the public by the White House and proported to be a factual representation of the Birth Certificate of outgoing US President, Barack Hussein Obama.

The results of this five-year investigation have now been presented during a press conference screened on December 15th, and have shown that 9 separate points were identified as having been copied from a seperate birth certificate belonging to a ‘Johanna Ah’Nee’, and were digitally pasted to the examined document.

In the video below, Zullo explains how a careful examination of the document’s letters and words, as well as the angles of the date stamps, have proved the document to be a forgery.

However, this revelation does not prove that Barack Obama was not born in the United States, it only proves that the document that was presented to the American public by the Obama administration in 2011 –  was indeed fake.

“The New Years Eve release of over 3000 new Hillary Clinton emails from the State Department has CNN abuzz over gossipy text messages, the ‘who gets to ride with Hilary’ selection process set up by her staff, and how a ‘cute’ Hillary photo fared on Facebook.”

SOURCE

CNN, however, have, along with other mainstream media outlets, been somewhat remiss in reporting on the more ‘explosive’ confirmations about Libya, which were also contained in the latest set of Clinton Email releases.

Admissions of rebel war crimes, special ops trainers being placed inside Libya from the very beginning of the protests preceding the invasion, Al Queda being firmly embedded in the U.S. backed opposition, western nations fighting to gain access to the Libyan oil fields, the real origins of the ridiculous Viagra-fuelled mass rape claims, and what may have been the real reason why the NATO-backed coalition effectively destroyed the country – the concern over Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves, which would have directly competed with both the Euro and the Dollar.

One of those who predicted that Mu’ummar Qaddafi would be overthrown and Libya utterly destroyed was Quaddafi himself, who in his final speeches, told of a future Libya mired in utter chaos, endless civil conflict, western interference and a breeding ground for Jihadi fundamentalism and extremists.

 “In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the merciful….

For forty years, or was it longer, I can’t remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools, and when they were hungry, I gave them food.

I even made Benghazi into farmland from the desert, I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Ronald Reagan, when he killed my adopted orphaned daughter, he was trying to kill me, instead he killed that poor innocent child.

Then I helped my brothers and sisters from Africa with money for the African Union.

I did all I could to help people understand the concept of real democracy, where people’s committee’s ran our country.

But that was never enough, as some told me, even people who had ten room houses, new suits and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish as they were – they wanted more.

They told Americans and other visitors, that they ‘needed democracy’ and needed ‘freedom’ never realising that democracy was a cut-throat system, where the biggest dog eats the rest, but they were enchanted with those words, never realising that in America, there was no free medicine, no free hospitals, no free housing, no free education and no free food, except when people had to beg on the streets or stand in long lines to get soup.

No, no matter what I did, it was never enough for some, but for others, they knew I was the son of Gamel Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we’ve had since Salah-al-Deen, when he claimed the Suez Canal for his people, as I claimed Libya, for my people.

It was his footsteps I tried to follow, to keep my people free from colonial domination – from thieves who would steal from us.

Now, I am under attack by the biggest force in military history, my little African son, Obama wants to kill me, to take away the freedom of our country, to take away our free housing, our free medicine, our free education, our free food, and replace it with American style thievery, called ‘Capitalism’, but all of us in the Third World know what that means.

It means that corporations run the countries, run the world and its the people who will suffer.

So, there is no alternative for me, I must make my stand, and if Allah wishes, I shall die following his path, the path that has made our country rich with farmland, with good food and health, and even allowed us to help our African and Arab brothers and sisters.

I do not wish to die, but if it comes to that, to save this land, my people, all the thousands who are all my children, then so be it.

Let this testament be my voice to the world, that I stood up to crusader attacks of NATO, stood up to cruelty, stood up to betrayal, stood up to the West and it’s colonist ambitions, and that I stood with my African brothers, my true Arab and Muslim brothers, as a beacon of light.

When others were building castles, I lived in a modest house, and in my tent. I never once forgot my youth in Sirté, I did not spend our national treasury foolishly, and like Salah-al-Deen, our great Muslim leader, who rescued Jerusalem for Islam, I took little for myself….

In the West, some have called me ‘Mad Dog’ and ‘Crazy’, but they know the truth yet continue to lie, they know that our land is independent and free, not in the colonial grip, that my vision, my path, is, and has been clear and for my people and that I will fight to my last breath to keep us free, may Allah almighty help us to remain faithful and free”.

If the land invasions and subsequent assassinations of Middle Eastern leaders like Muammar Quaddafi and Saddam Hussein has taught us anything, it should be the repercussions of such actions taken against allegedly ‘rogue’ states by the western powerhouses, and the total chaos that follows such actions.

With that in mind, why are the western allies now attempting to overthrow yet another government in the region in a similar manner?

The Faces of an enemy of the west?

  • Is it because the ruling Assad family belongs to the tolerant Shia Islam (Alawite) religion?
  • Is it because Syrian women have the same rights as their menfolk to study, healthcare and education?
  • Is it because Syrian women are not forced to wear the Burqa?
  • Is it because Syria is the only Arab country with a secular constitution, and one that does not tolerate Islamic extremist views and movements?
  • Is it because Syria has around 10% of its population who belong to one of the many Christian denominations, all of which are fully integrated into Syrian political and social life?
  • Is it because Syria has banned Genetically Modified (GMO) seeds, stating that the decision was made “to preserve human health“?
  • Is it because Syria is open to western society and it’s culture like no other Arab country?
  • Is it because it’s media and universities openly debate the global power elite’s influence in world affairs? Which means that it’s citizens fully understand that the real power in the west, lies not with the White House, but with the complex and powerful grid of elite think-tanks and central banks.
  • Is it because throughout history there have been seven Popes of Syrian origin, and it’s religious tolerance is a unique feature in the region?
  • Is it because prior to the current civil war, Syria was one of the only peaceful countries in the region, having avoided major wars and internal conflicts?
  • Is it because Syria was the only country that admitted Iraqi refugees without social, political or religious discrimination?
  • Is it because Syria clearly and categorically opposes Zionism and the government of Israel?
  • Is because that following a massive oil discovery in Syria’s Golan Heights, which has been occupied by Israel since 1967, Benjamin Netanyahu asked President Obama to recognise it’s annexation of that territory?
  • Is it to consolidate Israel’s already questionable hold on the Golan Heights, and to reinforce plans already drawn up, which will quadruple Israeli settler numbers to 100,000?
  • Is it because Syria is one of the only countries in the Middle East which has no debts owed to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) ? (Pre-invasion Libya and Iran being the notable others).
  • Is it because Syria is the only Mediterranean country which owns its oil companies, with vast reserves of 2500 Million barrels and has avoided privatisation and is reserved exclusively for state-owned enterprises and projects?
  • Or is it for some other reason?
Complied from various sources.

Since Germany introduced border controls, dramatically halting all train traffic with Austria, a number of European countries are set to follow Germany’s lead, as it is becoming obvious that the infastructure of many European countries, simply cannot cope with the overwhelming numbers of refugees entering the European Union.

Germany’s interior minister, Thomas de Maizière, had no option but to announce these measures after German officials said record numbers of refugees, the overwhelming majority of whom came from Syria – had ‘stretched the system to breaking point.’

So the question has to be asked, were these events entirely unexpected?

A number of Middle Eastern experts believe that the on-going European immigration crisis was orchestrated by various agencies within the west, and has from the start, been a ‘very well organised event‘, the purpose of which, was to remove President Bashir Al-Assad by any means possible.

They also believe what is being witnessed now, is a continuation of the so-called ‘Arab Spring’, and the primary objective is to place the people of Europe under such pressure, that they are left with little option but to request their governments to invade, effectively destroying Syria in the process, under the pretence of removing Assad.

Following George W. Bush’s and Tony Blair’s invasion of Iraq, every secular Muslim ‘Dictator’ in the Middle East, has gradually been removed in turn, and replaced by wholly untested and unstable religious regimes.

Saddam Hussein was removed from Iraq, being replaced by Shiite mullahs.

Hosni Mubarak was replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood, which in turn was then overthrown by a military coup.

Moamar Gadaffi was murdered and replaced with ultra-radical Sunni elements vying for power, and descended into total chaos soon afterwards.

All these events were purposely engineered, and have gone according to plan – up until this point in time.

However, we are now faced with a situation which was not in the script.

Russia and Iran are both supporting Assad, and as has been reported in the mainstream media, Russia has been moving in combat equipment, including nuclear submarines, to join with the military advisers already on the ground.

The U.S. Congress and the U.K. Parliament have already shown a marked reluctance to intervene, despite the best efforts of President Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron to bring about a full-scale military invasion, but according to Dr. Mark Christian, an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood:

“They have now been given the green light to start the flooding of refugees, start making Europe and America feel the pain more, because this is reaching the point where taking Assad out may be imminent. This is not a spontaneous thing. There are hardly no women coming into Europe. No Christians, who are the ones who are being truly persecuted. It’s mostly all Muslim men of military age, between the ages of 18 and 40. The more this continues the people of Europe and America will be left with no option but to beg their governments to go into Syria and end this.”

The tenth in a series of real-life Outlaw Heroes

President José Mujica of Uruguay, a 78-year-old former Marxist guerrilla who spent 14 years in prison, mostly in solitary confinement, visited the United States in 2014 to meet with President Obama and speak at a variety of venues. 

He told Obama that Americans should smoke less and learn more languages. 

jose_mujica

He lectured a roomful of businessmen at the US Chamber of Commerce about the benefits of redistributing wealth and raising workers’ salaries. He told students at American University that there are no “just wars.” 

Whatever the audience, he spoke extemporaneously and with such brutal honesty that it was hard not to love the guy.

He lives simply and rejects the perks of the presidency. Mujica has refused to live at the Presidential Palace or have a motorcade. He lives in a one-bedroom house on his wife’s farm and drives a 1987 Volkswagen. “There have been years when I would have been happy just to have a mattress,” said Mujica, referring to his time in prison. He donates over 90% of his $12,000/month salary to charity so he makes the same as the average citizen in Uruguay. When called “the poorest president in the world,” Mujica says he is not poor. “A poor person is not someone who has little but one who needs infinitely more, and more and more. I don’t live in poverty, I live in simplicity. There’s very little that I need to live.”

He supported the nation’s groundbreaking legalisation of marijuana. “In no part of the world has repression of drug consumption brought results. It’s time to try something different,” Mujica said. So in 2014, Uruguay became the first country in the world to regulate the legal production, sale, and consumption of marijuana. The law allows individuals to grow a certain amount each year and the government controls the price of marijuana sold at pharmacies. The law requires consumers, sellers, and distributors to be licensed by the government. Uruguay’s experience aims to take the market away from the ruthless drug traffickers and treat drug addiction as a public health issue. Their experiment will have reverberations worldwide.

In August 2013, Mujica signed the bill making Uruguay the second nation in Latin America (after Argentina) to legalise gay marriage. He said that legalizing gay marriage is simply recognizing reality. “Not to legalise it would be unnecessary torture for some people,” he said. In recent years, Uruguay has also moved to allow adoption by gay couples and openly gay people to serve in the armed forces.

He’s not afraid to confront corporate abuses, as evidenced by the epic struggle his government is waging against the American tobacco giant Philip Morris. A former smoker, Mujica says that tobacco is a killer that needs to be brought under control. But Philip Morris is suing Uruguay for $25 million at the World Bank’s International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes because of the country’s tough smoking laws that prohibit smoking in enclosed public spaces and require warning labels, including graphic images of the health effects. Uruguay is the first Latin American country and the fifth nation worldwide to implement a ban on smoking in enclosed public places. Philip Morris, the largest cigarette manufacturer in the United States, has huge global business interests (and a well-paid army of lawyers). Uruguay’s battle against the tobacco Goliath will also have global repercussions.

He supported the legalisation of abortion in Uruguay (his predecessor had vetoed the bill). The law is very limited, compared to laws in the US and Europe. It allows abortions within the first 12 weeks of the pregnancy and requires women to meet with a panel of doctors and social workers on the risks and possible effects of an abortion. But this law is the most liberal abortion law in socially conservative, Catholic Latin America and is clearly a step in the right direction for women’s reproductive rights.

He’s an environmentalist trying to limit needless consumption. At the Rio+20 Summit in 2012, he criticized the model of development pushed by affluent societies. “We can almost recycle everything now. If we lived within our means – by being prudent – the 7 billion people in the world could have everything they needed. Global politics should be moving in that direction,” he said. He also recently rejected a joint energy project with Brazil that would have provided his country with cheap coal energy because of his concern for the environment.

He has focused on redistributing his nation’s wealth, claiming that his administration has reduced poverty from 37% to 11%. “Businesses just want to increase their profits; it’s up to the government to make sure they distribute enough of those profits so workers have the money to buy the goods they produce,” he told businessmen at the US Chamber of Commerce. “It’s no mystery–the less poverty, the more commerce. The most important investment we can make is in human resources.” His government’s redistributive policies include setting prices for essential commodities such as milk and providing free computers and education for every child.

He has offered to take detainees cleared for release from Guantanamo. Mujica has called the detention center at Guantanamo Bay a “disgrace” and insisted that Uruguay take responsibility to help close the facility. The proposal is unpopular in Uruguay, but Mujica, who was a political prisoner for 14 years, said he is “doing this for humanity.”

He is opposed to war and militarism. “The world spends $2 billion a minute on military spending,” he exclaimed in horror to the students at American University. “I used to think there were just, noble wars, but I don’t think that anymore,” said the former armed guerrilla. “Now I think the only solution is negotiations. The worst negotiation is better than the best war, and the only way to insure peace is to cultivate tolerance.”

He has an adorable three-legged dog, Manuela. Manuela lost a foot when Mujica accidentally ran over it with a tractor. Since then, Mujica and Manuela have been almost inseparable.
 
Mujica’s influence goes far beyond that of the leader of a tiny country of only 3 million people. In a world hungry for alternatives, the innovations that he and his colleagues are championing have put Uruguay on the map as one of the world’s most exciting experiments in creative, progressive governance.

We know that war is madness, but it persists. We know that it threatens the survival of our species, but it persists, entrenched in the attitudes of historians, newspaper editors and television producers, entrenched in the methods by which politicians finance their campaigns, and entrenched in the financial power of arms manufacturers – entrenched also in the ponderous and costly hardware of war, the fleets of warships, bombers, tanks, nuclear missiles and so on.

In his farewell address, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned his nation against the excessive power that had been acquired during World War II by the military-industrial complex: 

“We have been compelled to create an armaments industry of vast proportions,” Eisenhower said, “…Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every state house, every office in the federal government. … We must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. … We must stand guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted.”

Eisenhower’s words echoed those of another US President, George Washington, who warned against “overgrown Military Establishments which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are regarded as particularly hostile to Republican Liberty.”

The military-industrial complex needs enemies. Without them it would wither. Thus at the end of the Second World War, this vast power complex was faced with a crisis, but it was saved by the discovery of a new enemy – Communism.

However, at the end of the Cold War there was another terrible crisis for the military establishment, the arms manufacturers and their supporters in research, government and the mass media.

People spoke of the “peace dividend”, i.e., constructive use of the trillion dollars that the world wastes each year on armaments. However, just in time, the military-industrial complex was saved from the nightmare of the “peace dividend” by the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington.

No matter that the attacks were crimes committed by individuals rather than acts of war, crimes against which police action rather than military action would have been appropriate.

The Bush Administration (and CNN, Fox, etc.) quickly proclaimed that a state of war existed, and that the rules of war were in effect.

The Cold War was replaced with the “War on Terrorism”.

To a large extent, this over-reaction to the events of 9/11/2001 can be interpreted in terms of the needs of the military-industrial complex against which Eisenhower had warned.

Without a state of war and without enemies, this vast conglomerate of organizations and pressure groups would have languished.

If the aim of the “War on Terror” had been to rid the world of the threat of terrorism, acts like illegal assassination using drones would have been counterproductive, since they create many more terrorists than they destroy. But since the real aim is to produce a state of perpetual war, thus increasing the profits of the military-industrial complex, such methods are the best imaginable.

Urinating on Afghan corpses or burning the Koran or murderous night-time raids on civilian homes also help to promote the real goal – perpetual war.

Even the events that initiated the “War on Terror”, seem to have been made worse than they otherwise might have been, in order to give a better excuse for invading Iraq, attacking Afghanistan, and attacking civil liberties. There is evidence that a number of highly placed officials in the US government knew as early as April 2001 that the World Trade Center might soon be attacked.

The testimony given by CIA insider Susan Lindauer is very explicit about this point. There is also evidence that charges of thermite were placed on steel structures of several buildings, to melt the steel and ensure their collapse. Molten steel and traces of thermite were found in the ruins before these were sealed off from public scrutiny by the FBI.

The collapse of Building 7 (which was not hit by the aircraft) is particularly suspicious. Larry Silverstein, the leaseholder of the World Trade Center, said shortly afterwards in a PBS interview: “I remember getting a call from the fire department commander telling me that they were not sure that they would be able to contain the fire…” (and he said that) “I think that the smartest thing to do is to pull it.”

The phrase “pull it” is one used to speak of controlled demolition, and the subsequent free-falling collapse of Building 7 had all the earmarks of this process.

For those who belong to the military-industrial complex, perpetual war is a blessing, but for the majority of the people of the world it is a curse. Since we who oppose war are the vast majority, can we not make our wills felt?

There are very few people who have not seen the above image, and countless hundreds of similar celebrity-heavy images in the mainstream media and all over the Internet.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has been pictured on TV holding up a similar message.

The article reproduced below was published on Theaustralian.com website on the 17th of April.

Almost a month ago.

So questions must be asked.

Are Boko Haram the new version of the non-existant Al Queda, the Islamic Militant Terrorist Organisation that never really was?

Is this just another distraction in a long line of recent distractions?

What purpose would it serve to continue running the story?

Legitimising the use of Drones perhaps, or getting boots on the ground to survey the land ready for the extraction of billions of dollars worth of oil and minerals?

Who knows….

ISLAMISTS FREE KIDNAPPED NIGERIAN SCHOOLGIRLS

SCORES of female students kidnapped by Islamic militants from a north-eastern Nigerian school are free, Nigeria’s military says.

Only eight of more than 100 students are unaccounted for, Major General Chris Olukolade said in a statement that gave no details.

“The others have been freed this evening,” he said.

The government had reported that security forces were in hot pursuit of militants who abducted more than 100 females from a high school yesterday.

Borno state Governor Kashim Shettima told reporters that 129 students were kidnapped and at least 14 freed themselves: four of the students – aged between 16 and 18 – jumped off the back of a truck and 10 escaped into the bush when the extremists asked them to cook and were not paying attention.

The abductions came hours after an explosion blamed on extremists killed 75 people in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, angering citizens who are questioning government and military claims that they are containing a 5-year-old Islamic uprising. Two more attacks killed 20 people on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning in north-eastern Nigerian villages.

While the military claims that they have cornered insurgents in a remote northeast corner of the West African nation, attacks have increased in frequency and are becoming more deadly. More than 1500 people have been killed this year, compared to an estimated 3600 between 2010 and 2013.

Mr Shettima told reporters that the insurgents arrived at Chibok government Secondary School for Girls wearing military fatigues and posing as soldiers – a common tactic used by the insurgents. His information came from the school principal, who believed the men were soldiers removing the young women – aged between 16 and 18 – for their own safety. So the principal made no fuss as the students were loaded onto the back of a truck.

It was only as the armed men were leaving, and started shooting, that he realised his mistake, Mr Shettima said. The militants killed a soldier and a police officer guarding the school, officials said.

Such attacks are typical of the Boko Haram terrorist network – the name means “Western education is sinful” – which has vowed to force an Islamic state on Nigeria – Africa’s most populous nation of some 180 million people divided almost equally between mainly Muslims in the north and a predominantly Christian south.

The extremists have been kidnapping girls and young women but in one horrendous attack – some of the 59 students killed were burned alive in a dorm – first went to the girl’s residence and told them all to leave, go home and forget about education because it was un-Islamic.

Nigeria has Africa’s biggest economy. Almost 70 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line and the northeast suffers the most poverty. Only 5 per cent of children get to high school, and only a small percentage of those are girls. The government closed all schools in Borno three weeks ago, but those who were kidnapped were recalled so that they could write their final exams.

Is steering Hurricanes and modifying the intensity of storms a remit of the Department of Homeland Security?

Could the so-called ‘Frankenstorm’ Sandy more correctly be described as a coordinated exercise rather than an unplanned natural disaster?

This is an Official Memorandum on Hurricane Modification Research.

WASHINGTON POST

Consider also this article by Melissa Melton of InfoWars: ‘Obama Ordered DHS to Control Hurricanes’

INFOWARS

Did President Obama and the corporate media – including the Weather Channel – have advance knowledge that SANDY would be subjected to intense aerosol geoengineering and possible HAARP manipulation in order to assure targeted intensity and land-fall in the Northeast United States?

CHEMTRAILS PLANET

In August 2008, The Telegraph reported that US scientists:

“believe they can weaken the strength of tropical storms and steer them off course using a range of methods that include spraying fine particles into hurricanes or cooling the sea water in areas where they form.”

“What emerges is a clear record of media, government, military and inter-agency secrecy and complicity not acknowledged since the Manhattan Project” – H. Saive

On October 30th, US NEWS programmes reported that InfoWars, TheIntelHub, and ConsfearacyNewz had published a “conspiracy theory” that alleged Obama had used HAARP to engineer Hurricane SANDY in order to guarantee his re-election to a second term.

But for that to be entirely balanced and accurate, they should have also included a well-documented aerosol geoengineering program carried out by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under project “HAMP”. (Hurricane Aerosol Microphysics Program).

The details of modifying the strength of hurricanes under Project HAMP was revealed at the 2010 American Meteorological Association meeting.

Was it there that it was revealed that aerosol geoengineering was used to modify the intensity and possible storm track of Hurricane Katrina in 2005?

Further documentation associated with HAMP also reveal that aerosol geo-engineering is common knowledge to the White House, Pentagon, NOAA, the National Hurricane Center and many other government agencies.
