Did US secret weapons cause Japan’s earthquake and tsunami???

“Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal. An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945. Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”
– From article in the New Zealand Herald (New Zealand’s leading newspaper), 9/25/1999

A declassified government report (96 MB file) featured in the newspaper article below shows that a tsunami bomb was created as a potential weapon during WWII in a program code-named Project Seal. There is little doubt that this tsunami weapon was further developed and refined over the ensuing decades, though all documents related to current developments of the project are almost certainly still classified. Though it may seem far-fetched to imagine military involvement, these documents and reports raise serious questions about the recent tsunami in Japan and the December 26, 2004 tsunami in Indonesia.

The many layers of intense secrecy both in the government and military result in very few people being aware of the gruesome capabilities for death and destruction that have been developed over the years. Were it not for the below article in New Zealand’s leading newspaper, the public would never have known that a tsunami bomb had been created many decades ago. No one denies that highly destructive weapons are being developed in secret by the militaries of the world. What the public doesn’t know is what these weapons are, and what they are being used for. All of this is generally classified for reasons of “national security.”

Sadly, the rubric of “national security” has all to often been used for secret political and economic gains which clearly do not benefit the public. Operation Northwoods, uncovered by ABC News in the year 2000, showed that the top Pentagon generals were willing to foment terrorism and sacrifice innocent civilians in order to provoke a war with Cuba in the early 1960s. Credible researchers into the government’s HAARP program are convinced that this technology which manipulates our ionosphere is being used for military means and can even cause natural disasters like earthquakes. Because of this, we have to ask the hard questions.

It is unprecedented in recorded history for two major tidal waves to occur less than seven years apart. See brief descriptions of the 10 most destructive tsunamis in recorded history at this link. For four intriguing theories on what might have caused the Japanese earthquake (including one which predicted the date), click here. Theory two seems ridiculous, but the other three are worth considering. The fourth theory is based on HAARP and has some good information about that possibility.

Tsunami bomb NZ’s devastating war secret

Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945.

Professor Thomas Leech’s work was considered so significant that United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb.

Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Social networks went into overload after ‘The Bible’ broadcast depicted an actor portraying Satan who bore an uncanny resemblance to President Obama.

Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni portrays Satan in History Channel’s documentary The Bible. Many viewers thought the actor looked a little too much like President Obama.

NY Daily News

Why does Satan look suspiciously like President Barack Obama in the History Channel’s hit series The Bible?

That’s the question on many viewers’ lips after Sunday evening’s episode of the popular show featured a devil-playing actor with an uncanny resemblance to the 44th POTUS.

Social networks went into meltdown as thousands of the 13.1 million audience pointed out the eerie similarity between Obama and actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, reports mediaite.com.

Right-wing commentator and radio-host Glenn Beck tweeted: “Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?”

Twitter user @LeahMChristie also tweeted: “Oh my word…watching The History Channel’s The Bible..does Satan look familiar to anyone else?”The show, produced by Mark Burnett, is a retelling of the stories from the scriptures in a scripted format, from Genesis to Revelation.

It airs on the History Channel in two-hour chunks on Sunday nights, with its finale scheduled for March 31, Easter Sunday.

Burnett has so far not commented on the controversy.

Congressman Blasts Obama For Using Fake Twitter Messages (People) To promote Gun Control

February 25, 2013 by

Freedom Outpost

Rep Steve Stockman (R-TX) made accusations against Barack Obama on Monday over his gun control campaign claiming that is it fraud based with fake messages over Twitter. Stockman claims that Obama is seeking to give the appearance of support greater than what he has for gun control legislation by flooding Twitter with messages from people that don’t exist.

“Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud,” Stockman said. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress,” he added. “I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign.”

When Obama called for people to tweet their congressmen in support of more gun control legislation, Stockman said he received a mere 16 tweets. However, he notes that upon closer examination, only six of the tweets were from six actual people and that the messages were all identical.

“The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said.

Then, in a press release issued by Stockman, he writes, “The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots.”

• They all use the default “egg” avatar.
• They have account names resembling names automatically suggested by Twitter.
• They have engaged in no human interaction.
• They have tweeted almost nothing promotional, sponsored messages pushing real estates websites and other liberal “grassroots” campaigns.
• They follow mostly MSNBC anchors or media outlets, not actual people.

His press release went on to point out, “Reporter Robert Stacy McCain’s investigation of the fraudulent Obama campaign, available at www.theothermccain.com, finds the majority of the Obama-supporting accounts were created in less than 48 hours before contacting members of Congress.”

“Even more interesting, Stockman staff find two accounts happened to tweet Stockman back-to-back,” the press release continued. “Both have only one follower, former Obama digital strategist Brad Schenck. Schenck somehow found and followed them before they ever tweeted anything, followed anyone or followed any real people. Of the six real people who contacted Stockman only one can be verified as a constituent. One lives outside the district and the remaining four do not list where they live.”

“If you are a real person who contacted us about your support for the President’s anti-gun campaign, we are listening. We do not agree with you, but we appreciate your sincere opinions and encourage you to continue to contact us,” said Stockman. “But the vast majority of the President’s supporters have no feelings because they fake profiles from spammers.”

“The White House has some explaining to do. My own staff, and others looking into Obama’s Twitter campaign, find the vast majority of messages are coming from fraudulent accounts. Some of these accounts are linked directly to a former Obama staffer. To what extent is the White House involved in this attempt to defraud Congress,” said Stockman.

Stockman ultimately said that the Obama anti-gun campaign was “using the same scam techniques that sell male enhancement pills.”

City in Virginia Becomes First to Pass Anti-Drone Legislation

Resolution bans all municipal agencies from buying or leasing drones

A statue of Thomas Jefferson overlooks the Charlottesville, Va., campus of the University of Virginia.

Charlottesville, Va., has become the first city in the United States to formally pass an anti-drone resolution.

The resolution, passed Monday, “calls on the United States Congress and the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia to adopt legislation prohibiting information obtained from the domestic use of drones from being introduced into a Federal or State court,” and “pledges to abstain from similar uses with city-owned, leased, or borrowed drones.”

[PHOTOS: The Rise of the Drone]

The resolution passed by a 3-2 vote and was brought to the city council by activist David Swanson and the Rutherford Institute, a civil liberties group based in the city. The measure also endorses a proposed two-year moratorium on drones in Virginia.

Councilmember Dede Smith, who voted in favor of the bill, says that drones are “pretty clearly a threat to our constitutional right to privacy.”

“If we don’t get out ahead of it to establish some guidelines for how drones are used, they will be used in a very invasive way and we’ll be left to try and pick up the pieces,” she says.

[READ: White House Declines to Explain Drone Policy]

The passed resolution is much less restrictive than the draft Swanson originally introduced, which would have sought to declare the city a “No Drone Zone” and would have tried to banned all drones over Charlottesville airspace “to the extent compatible with federal law.” The draft would have also banned all Charlottesville municipal agencies from buying, leasing, borrowing, or testing any drones.

Councilmember Dave Norris says the city has a “long tradition of promoting civil liberties.”

“It’s just part of our culture here,” he says.

Charlottesville is located 120 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., and has a population of about 43,000. The city is home to the University of Virginia, which has not tried to obtain a waiver to test drones from the Federal Aviation Administration.

[PHOTOS: 'Stealth' Hoodie Lets You Duck Drone Cameras]

The move earned praise from the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Amie Stepanovich, a lawyer with the group, says that the “Charlottesville resolution demonstrates that people care about protecting their civil liberties and Fourth Amendment rights and are willing to devote the time necessary to closely examine this issue.”

“Lawmakers should be looking at [drone privacy] issues now in order to ensure that there are safeguards in place to protect individual privacy from these invasive technologies,” she says.

Smith admits that the final legislation won’t do anything to prevent federal- or state-operated drones from operating over Charlottesville’s skies, but that the symbolic move could push other cities to follow suit.

“With a lot of these resolutions, although they don’t have a lot of teeth to them, they can inspire other governments to pass similar measures,” she says. “You can get a critical mass and then it does have influence. One doesn’t do much, but a thousand of them might. We want this on [federal and state lawmakers'] radars.”

[RELATED: Oregon Drone Bill Would Claim the 'Airspace' Above Your Shoestrings]

Vice Mayor Kristin Szakos, who voted against the resolution, says she “can imagine ways in which drones might be used for positive things” and that the move was premature.

“I think drones have been used for bad things, but it’s like banning airplanes because they can drop bombs,” she says. “At this point, the city isn’t even talking about using drones. It seems premature to me to ban them altogether.”

In power play, North Korea threatens to conduct 3rd nuke test at any moment

February 3, 2013 by

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un issued “important” guidelines on how to bolster the army and protect the nation’s sovereignty at a high-level ruling Workers’ Party meeting, state media said Sunday, an indication that Pyongyang may be ready to conduct an atomic test anytime.

RELATED: NORTH KOREA COULD BE READY TO CONDUCT A NUCLEAR TEST

North Korea said last month that it would conduct its third nuclear test to protest international sanctions toughened over its long-range rocket launch in December. The U.S., South Korea and other countries have urged the North to scrap its nuclear test plans or face grave consequences.

North Korea says U.S. hostility and the threat of American troops in South Korea are important reasons behind its nuclear drive. The country also says it has the sovereign right to launch rockets to send satellites into orbit under a space development program; the U.S. says the December launch was a disguised test of banned missile technology.

SNL Great, John Lovitz KILLS it on CNN (Piers Morgan) 1% vs 99% Lie…Must See!

May 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Media

Lovitz was a rock star on the Piers MORGAN show last night. Saying that there are many others in Hollywood that, like him, are Fed Up with Obama. Lovitz calls out cousin Barry for the Class warfare spewing hypocrite that he is. Sounds like he listens to us…. ha. Morgan is a fool and got Owned!

 

Mediaite.com

Jon Lovitz recently caused a stir with his profanity-laced remarks about President Obama. On Tuesday night, Piers Morgansat down with Lovitz to discuss it. Recalling how he “believed” in Obama, Lovitz expressed how he’s grown to take issue with how the president is framing what some call “class warfare.”

Morgan started off by playing a clip of the remarks in question:

“This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don’t pay their taxes is fucking bullshit. And I voted for the guy and I’m a Democrat. What a fucking asshole.

“The rich don’t pay their taxes? Let me tell you something, right. First they tell you — you’re dead broke — this is the United States of America, you can do anything you want, go for it. So then you go for it, and then you make it, and everyone’s like, fuck you.”

“It’s a comedy club, there’s no language restrictions,” Lovitz said. Asked if he meant what he said, without the profanity, Lovitz said, “Yes, I did mean what I said.”

He added, “I believed in him, I agreed with everything he was saying when he ran for president, I was listening to what he said, I thought this guy thinks like me and I agree with him. And now he’s changing.”

Now, he said, all Obama says is that millionaires and billionaires don’t pay their fair share. Morgan asked why the 1 percent shouldn’t pay a bit more in “times of great economic crisis,” and Lovitz replied, “I don’t agree with that.” Morgan asked whether he thought Wall Street was responsible for the economic meltdown. Lovitz said, “Maybe some of it, but not all of it. Some people they got housing loans, I think they’re responsible for taking a loan they didn’t qualify for.”

Morgan argued that those who took loans weren’t as well-versed in the issue as those who gave them out, and the two disagreed back and forth on the topic.

Lovitz said, “This whole idea of this 1% versus the 99%, it’s a false static.” Nobody who is wealthy “saying let’s go get the people that aren’t,” he said, adding that Obama’s “creating a false class warfare.” He said he knows what it’s like to be “dead broke,” and does sympathize with those struggling, but argued it’s not the fault of the 1 percent. The economy’s bad for everybody, he said.

Furthermore, Lovitz said Obama’s hypocritical because he’s in the 1 percent. Morgan insisted that it’s not a bad idea for those who have more to help a little bit more. Lovitz conceded that’s fine, but countered that that’s not the way the president is framing it.

Conspiracy fact: Apple’s Steve Jobs conspired on e-book price-fixing, lawsuits say

April 12, 2012 by  
Filed under Sci-Tech

Jobs and Murdock screwed you again


 

LA Times

 
Video

WASHINGTON — Former Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs and top executives at five major book publishers illegally conspired to raise the prices of e-books, costing consumers tens of millions of dollars, federal and state officials alleged in antitrust suits filed Wednesday.

The collusion began in 2009 and price fixing took effect with the launch of the iPad in early 2010, boosting the average cost of e-books by $2 to $3 each “virtually overnight,” said Sharis Pozen, the acting head of the Justice Department‘s antitrust division.

“We allege that these executives knew full well what they were doing. That is, taking steps to make sure the prices consumers paid for e-books were higher,” she said in announcing the federal suit.

“‘The customer pays a little more, but that’s what you want anyway,'” Pozen quoted Jobs as saying at one point in the negotiations with publishers.

The suit said Apple proudly described the price-fixing plan — which gave the iPad maker a guaranteed 30% commission on each e-book it sold through its online marketplace — as an “aikido move,” referring to the Japanese martial art.

The suit, and another by 16 state attorneys general, was filed against Apple, Simon & Schuster Inc., Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins Publishers, Macmillan and Penguin Group.

Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster reached a settlement with the Justice Department that would require them to allow retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble to reduce the prices of e-books they sell from the publishers, the Justice Department said.

The settlement, if approved by a federal judge, would restore competition to the e-book market, Pozen said.

In addition, Hachette and HarperCollins agreed to settle the states’ lawsuit and pay a total of about $51 million in restitution to e-book customers nationwide. The states are still negotiating restitution with Simon & Schuster.

Apple, Macmillan and Penguin did not agree to a settlement, and Pozen promised the Justice Department would purse the case against them vigorously.

Macmillan CEO John Sargent denied the charges in an open letter posted Wednesday on Tor.com, one of the publisher’s imprints.

“Macmillan did not collude,” he wrote.

An Apple spokesman said the company had no comment on the suits.

Amazon cheered the lawsuits and the settlements. The suit portrayed Amazon, which makes the Kindle e-reader, as a victim of the price-fixing because they could not charge lower prices and ostensibly lost e-book sales to Apple.

“This is a big win for Kindle owners, and we look forward to being allowed to lower prices on more Kindle books,” the company said.

The federal suit, filed in U.S. District Court in New York, alleged that the publishers began illegally working together in the summer of 2009 to raise prices in response to Amazon’s offering of e-books for $9.99 each.

They joined with Apple in 2010 to create a system that boosted the prices of books to $12.99 or $14.99, the suit said.

Apple and the publishers “reached an agreement whereby retail price competition would cease (which all the conspirators desired), retail e-book prices would increase significantly (which the publisher defendants desired) and Apple would be guaranteed a 30% ‘commission’ on each e-book it sold (which Apple desired),” the suit said.

For the record, 3:50 p.m. April 11: An earlier version of this post misspelled the last name of the chief executive of Macmillan. His name is John Sargent.

Miami Marlins MLB manager “suspended” for Pro Castro / Cuba comment (there is no free speech only PC)

America’s pastime huh? Apple pie and fascism…

 

MIAMI –

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended for five games amid controversy over a comment he made about Fidel Castro.

The Marlins released a statement Tuesday morning, saying, “The Marlins acknowledge the seriousness of the comments attributed to Guillen. The pain and suffering caused by Fidel Castro cannot be minimized, especially in a community filled with victims of the dictatorship.”

 

Time Magazine reported that Guillen said he loves Castro and respects him for staying in power so long.

An emotional Guillen spoke at a Tuesday morning news conference, apologizing again in Spanish before fielding questions in English. He said he was “very embarrassed, very sad.”

“I apologize to the people here, outside, and I’m very, very, very sorry about the problem, about what happened. I will do everything to make it better, everything in my power to make it better,” Guillen said.

Guillen has been accused of saying he loves Castro, but when asked at the news conference if he loves the former Cuban dictator, he said, “No.” The Marlins manager said the reporter in the article misinterpreted his remarks and claimed what he really said in Spanish was, “I cannot believe that someone who has hurt so many people over the years is still alive.”

Guillen, who is from Venezuela, repeatedly told reporters he is not pro-Castro or pro-Hugo Chavez.

“I’d prefer to die than vote for Chavez,” Guillen said in Spanish.

A Miami resident, Guillen said that fixing his problem with the community is more important to him than his suspension.

“I don’t blame those people to think what they think right now because they have all the right, because I hurt a lot of people, and I’m aware of that. It’s something, it’s another thing that’s not in my hands,” Guillen said. “If I’m going to be a Miami guy for the rest of my life, I got meet the community every day even if I want to or not, because I live here. I want to walk on the street with my head up and feel not this bad, the way I feel right now.”

The manager said before Monday’s game he’s had sleepless nights because of his comments and wants to make amends.

“I’m going to make everything clear what’s going on,” he said. “People can see me and talk. I’ve already talked to people. But I think it’s the proper thing to see my eyes. They can see me and ask whatever question they want. I think sooner is better. Better for the ballclub, better for me.”

Guillen said that he will no longer talk politics and that he will stick to baseball.

Members of the Cuban-American community, as well as Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Joe Martinez and Miami Commission Chairman Francis Suarez, have called for Guillen’s removal.

A group of protesters gathered outside Tuesday morning’s news conference. Some held signs saying, “Boycott the Miami Marlins.”

The protesters were not satisfied by the suspension and the public apologies by Guillen. Some were activists belonging to groups such as Vigilio Mambisa, but others were not.

“There’s no apology. Lack of common sense and stupidity has no room,” said protester Sylvia Unzueta. “How can he guide a group of people to win anything?”

Ron Paul Campaign Releases Web Ad ‘Etch A Sketch’

Ad condemns Romney top aide’s cavalier statement that after election, campaign promises face quick, easy nullification—and games vs. voters commence

RonPaul2012

LAKE JACKSON, Texas – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul released today an online ad titled ‘Etch A Sketch’ to condemn a Mitt Romney top aide’s televised assertion that campaign promises are meaningless, and to further present Paul as the principled choice for the Republican nomination.

Beginning today ‘Etch A Sketch’ will be pushed to conservative email lists, and promoted on blogs and websites where conservative activists and opinion leaders congregate.

Etch A Sketch’ is being launched in reaction to controversial comments made by Mitt Romney’s strategist Eric Fehrnstrom.  The top aide, in a Freudian slip, said that after the general election, “everything changes, it’s almost like an ‘Etch A Sketch’…you can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”  The Paul ad argues that in the context of $15 trillion in federal government debt, 12 million Americans jobless, and a country perpetually at war there is zero justification for treating the election as something to be toyed with.  ‘Etch A Sketch’ then mocks fake conservative Rick Santorum and serial hypocrite Newt Gingrich and presents Ron Paul as the one authentic—and consistent—Republican candidate running for the nomination.

In addition to calling Paul the sole candidate with a consistent track record of conservatism, the ad mentions the 12-term Congressman from Texas’s path-breaking ‘Plan to Restore America’ that will jump-start his presidency, not a scheme to reverse the platform of constitutionally-limited government that Paul directly told to thousands of voters at town hall meetings and rallies.

“Conservatives and Constitutionalists have long been concerned about Mitt Romney’s track record of position changes and flip-flops, and his top adviser’s slip of the tongue only reinforces this suspicion,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.  “It is equally off-putting to see Santorum and Gingrich react like carnival barkers, not the statesmen America sorely needs.  But, none of this is surprising,” added Mr. Benton, referring to the many displays of feigned outrage by Messrs. Santorum and Gingrich.

“While the other candidates and the political chattering class are obsessed with horse-race politics and scoring public relations points, Dr. Paul stands alone in offering real solutions to difficult problems.  He is the only candidate with a ‘Plan to Restore America’ that cuts real spending and balances the budget in one term, ends the foreign wars and nation-building, cuts taxes and regulations to create jobs, and reigns in the Federal Reserve,” added Mr. Benton.

“And, only Dr. Paul has the track record of consistent, principled leadership Americans can trust.  While the other candidates are playing games, Dr. Paul is fighting to Restore America Now,” he concluded.

Invisible Children filmmaker Jason Russell, who created the viral “Kony 2012″ video, will remain in the hospital for several weeks for what his wife described as “reactive psychosis.”

LA Times

In a statement released Wednesday, his wife and other family members said they believe this condition caused him to act strangely last week, ranting and roaming around a San Diego street in the nude.

The family said the treatment could take months.

“Jason will get better,” they said. “He has a long way to go, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery. He is, and will remain, under hospital care for a number of weeks; and after that, the recovery process could take months before he is fully able to step back into his role with Invisible Children. During that time, we will focus not on a speedy recovery, but a thorough one.”

They said doctors are treating Russell for “brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by the extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration,” the family said. “Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks.”

Russell, 33, was taken into custody Thursday afternoon by San Diego police after neighbors reported him running naked in the streets of a Pacific Beach neighborhood, pounding his fists on the sidewalk and shouting incoherently. Police took him to a mental-health facility for observation.

Police responded to “several callers [who] reported that the male removed his underwear and was nude, perhaps masturbating,” according to the police statement. By the time police arrived, the man was wearing underwear.

“The callers reported the underwear-clad male was in the street, interfering with traffic, screaming, yelling incoherently and pounding his fists on the sidewalk,” according to a statement released by police spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown. “He continued to act in a bizarre and irrational manner.”A statement by Russell’s wife, Danica, and other members of his family suggested the criticism of the Invisible Children video about African militia leader Joseph Kony may have contributed to Russell’s bizarre behavior.

“Because of how personal the film is, many of the attacks against it were also very personal and Jason took them very hard,” the statement said.

Among other things, critics said the video misstated the facts about the current level of violence in Uganda, Kony’s current whereabouts and the strength of his militia forces.

“Jason has dedicated his adult life to this cause, leading to” the “Kony 2012″ video, the family statement said. “We thought a few thousand people would see the film, but in less than a week, millions of people around the world saw it.”

In an apparent comment to the nonprofit organization’s many volunteers, the statement concludes: “On our end, the focus remains only on his health, and protecting our family. We’ll take care of Jason, you take care of the work. The message of the film remains the same: Stop at nothing.”

The organization plans to distribute materials about Kony in several major cities, including San Diego, in April.

Russell is a native of El Cajon, where his parents run the Christian Youth Theater. A graduate of USC, he co-founded Invisible Children, which now has headquarters in an office building in downtown San Diego.

 “On Jason’s behalf, keep your attention turned to the end of Africa’s longest-running conflict, and setting a precedent for all future injustice,” the family said in the statement Wednesday. “With love and overflow of gratitude for your prayers, we thank you.”RELATED:
