09/11/2001 wake up call.

I am David Joseph Lango, born July 2, 1958 in Buffalo, N.Y.

We can start this serious conversation with some humor if you like: or read “THEY KILLED OUR PRESIDENT” by Jesse Ventura.

Too heavy duty? Okay, about the humor John Oliver presented to (imho) hero of the world, Edward Snowden…

The government can see your junk; that’s the line in the sand everyone agrees with. I do not agree with much of what John Oliver has to present, as he is a British subject, and explores gun control. I watched a video where he ridicules that ‘gun control doesn’t work’. So this particular journalist came up with a gem in the middle of me thinking he should just kiss my ass.

He did good!

The old lady who announces that if the government had a program that would retain a picture of her husband’s penis? She would want that government program shut down. Even though she doesn’t believe the gov’t does that, or would dare to do that, in the first place.

Edward Snowden doesn’t realize how simple everyone is, and regrets not putting everything in the perspective of a picture of one’s junk. I laughed so hard the first time through, I had to watch it again to see what I missed.

It would be a revolution, if everyone from the grassroots to government, stopped borrowing money. It would fix everything without firing a shot.

It’s the only way to shake PTB authority.

*************************

The “Powers That Be”, or PTB, is a global hegemony. Various names to describe the PTB include Illuminati, Skull and Dagger~33rd degree Masons, Jesuit Priests, Trilateral Commission, RAND, Warburg, Venetian Nobles, AIPAC, Bilderberg Meetings, Bohemian Grove, and individuals who are complicit and party to, including, Rockefeller, Soros, Bloomberg, and all six of the Jewish owners of all major mainstream media, including FOX, and their many agents. JFK said it is a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy expanding its sphere of influence by covert means and censoring the news.

They create the arguments for people to debate with a predetermined establishment solution already crafted, by censoring and editing everything that gets published or gets on television.

Perhaps the most visible in history is the House of Rothschild. One of the Rothschild mothers announced if her sons did not want war, there wouldn’t be any.”
Rothschild family motto: “By way of deception thou shalt do war.”

Secret societies like the Rothschilds hide their castles of wealth in plain sight like the one they call their “United States” Federal Reserve Bank in Washington D.C.. It’s privately owned and the PTB won’t allow Congress to audit the Fed. Start adding up national debts to this global central banking system, to get an idea of their ‘worth’.

False flag operations like 9/11 are based on lies to foment war.

The PTB had the buildings in New York blown up, on 9/11/2001, and got away with blaming Muslim terrorists, because they tightly control our Jewish owned media. It took a wicked amount of engineering for those demolitions to not leave gigantic piles of rubble, and/or huge chunks of the building left, that didn’t explode. One miscalculation would result in an uneven ‘collapse’ where much of the skyscraper still towered hundreds of feet in the air.

My professional pedigree is important to share. I can make a better call on what we have on video than any engineer without hands on, in the field experience.

Washington State Department of Labor and Industries issued me a Users License to set power poles in solid rock with dynamite, primer cord, and electric blasting caps. Also while reporting for duty at the Hanford cleanup mission from 1992 to 2004 I was witness to many demolitions.

Ground Zero was a smoking hole that burned until Dec. 21, 2001. What kind of fires burn under water?

So whodunit?

There is much fuss made about ‘the Jews’.

The Jewish temple was destroyed in 70 A.D., so without any records, no one can prove they are the lost twelve tribes of Israel. This is defined as the Diaspora. The modern Ashkenazi Jew has lineage that can be traced all the way back to their roots in the land between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. They are those who say they are Jews, but are not. Revelations 2:9. The Ashkenazi are not one of the lost twelve tribes of Israel.

The Diaspora happened. And as long as you do not have a lineage, chances are, especially if you’re not “Jewish”, you may well be more kin to the ‘chosen people’, because at least, you’re not one of these Ashkenazi pseudo Jews.

Every horrible troll to parade through history has been funded by these Ashkenazi Jews. Marx, Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Cheney, and Netanyahu. Man cannot hijack a promise of land by God. The Israeli occupation of Palestine is illegitimate (Balfour agreement).

Amazingly enough, using their control over all media, from Hollywood to the 6 O’clock News, millions of American Christians are convinced they need to support Zionism, because “Israel is God’s Chosen People”. Zionism is the power structure of the world. Zionism is not a religion. Zionism is a political ideology.

Zionism is man’s effort to hijack a promise of land by God. Period.

Zionism is a big fat lie, and we’re cheering for a rogue global nuclear superpower and their ‘Sampson Option’.

.neuclear

If we move Israel to the United States, and provide a homeland here in America for these modern Jews, world peace would ensue. Almost half of them are already here enjoying our freedom of religion. The many Jews in Los Angeles I’ve worked for seem pleasant enough. Perhaps it’s the nice weather here on the West Side. Everything is already clogged, what’s a few more million? Bring my people home!

We’ve had over a hundred years of that wicked eye on the dollar bill, and a hundred years of war. Like Ron Paul says, it’s no coincidence. It’s time to end the Fed.

 

*********************
9/11/2001 is the establishment lie or “false flag” that is the foundation for all our modern illicit war and tyranny at home.
The PTB used their Mossad/CIA agents and secret operatives in at least three nations, U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia, to pull off the attack on the United States September 11, 2001. The Jewish owned media is complicit. All journalist and television anchors adhere to this official narrative of a guru in a cave who got some hijackers to circumvent security by picking a day when Norrad was playing war games, and that the airplanes were the reason the buildings blew up (calling it a ‘collapse’).

“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.

~ John Swinton (pre-eminent NY journalist 1880)

The sooner the world learns that everything that is printed or broadcast is based on falsehood and outright lies the better.

My suspicion isn’t just validated when I start researching something. It’s always worse than I thought. I started with one of the bigger lies, the skyscrapers ‘collapsed’ story.

Jim Kosior is a private citizen who filmed “Tuesday Morning in September” on his camcorder. I noted when you purchase a copy, he sends two. It’s the only private account of 9/11/2001 that I know of. It was filmed from New Jersey. I am pleased to report he now has it up on YouTube to watch it for free. Everyone needs to see what happened as it happened, because the official story on TV is a lie.


The Israeli Mossad did 9/11 according to Dr. Alan Sabrosky. Why would Israel attack us on 9/11?

 

**************************
Steel framed fireproof skyscrapers are built to withstand impacts from the largest airplanes.

The jet fuel was gone in seconds, we have video of it. As a matter of fact by reviewing video of the event, most of the jet fuel burned after the aircraft shredded itself on the steel. The momentum of the atomized fuel, burned up in the air, outside of the skyscraper. The ‘intense heat’ the establishment describes, was of insufficient duration, and in the wrong location, to be a factor in what is described in the NIST reports.

Black smoke means plenty of fuel and not enough air. Note the North Tower still puffing black smoke, indicating a low heat, oxygen starved office fire.

The jet fuel in the North Tower was long gone at this point as well, having been also only briefly exposed, to a similar gigantic brilliant ball of fire.

In the above video from Jim Kosior’s “Tuesday Morning in September”, he captures the aircraft hitting the South Tower on his camcorder. This private footage filmed from New Jersey, shows what happened to all the jet fuel.

Conjecture in the NIST reports, supposes much of the jet fuel was left over inside the building.

The demo appears as if the steel core of the skyscraper was suddenly ‘ionized’. The skyscraper core columns exploding into a gas, is one of the only reasonable explanations for what we have on video. The pyroclastic clouds roar out of the airplane holes, and the entire skyscraper erupts, and is obliterated in seconds.

Who has access to incendiary far more powerful and high tech than dynamite? The aftermath is telling, if you research accounts of ground zero, on 9/11/2001 Ground Zero was a smoking hole in the ground with few shards sticking above grade.

There was little left but dust and hot puddles of steel that stayed molten for weeks afterward.moltensteelenclose5mt

NIST does not consider any incendiary hotter than jet fuel.

Here is an excerpt from the actual NIST report.

****************
It’s my opinion that we are all infinite beings experiencing a temporary human condition, unable to use our expanded consciousness while in this Earthy veil of tears.

The universe according to the author Eben Alexander, M.D., who wrote “Proof of Heaven”; is awash in goodness.

Not surprising to me, this doctor who suffered a coma and a near death experience, admits that Earth is a special little rotten spot in the universe, where evil is allowed to triumph over good.

The most striking thing about this book he wrote, is how the doctor stressed that everything is as it should be, and not to worry. As Eben Alexander M.D., tries to bring back from ‘the other side’, his experiences, one can conclude that there is something more to it. Perhaps more than just evolution and dust to dust. It gives merit to the ‘eternal soul’ concept.

I beg pardon for paraphrasing and summarizing the author’s effort. He explains we all have a greater consciousnesses that is inhibited while we are here in human form, but mere images of God. It’s a pretty special book and I also beg pardon for taking things out of context like I just did.

“You are loved.” is the bottom line message. “You can do no wrong.”

20140930_180345

The book raised a lot of questions in my ‘conscience’.

The doctor elaborates that consciousness cannot be explained by science.

I did not do the book “Proof of Heaven”, by Eben Alexander M.D. justice.

You should read it too!

It’s much more lively than “End the Fed” by Dr. Ron Paul, in which finding a dirty milk bottle was the most exciting thing. However I do believe “End the Fed” should be required reading in school. On the topic of required reading…

************** I have developed other opinions you should know about***********

“Evolution is the establishment’s religion to give people an excuse to dismiss a Creator.”
*****************
After all, religion is the opiate of the people. Marx and Lenin exploited this.

darwinDarwin was an establishment troll. He was groomed to be a Captain’s ‘dinner companion’, and placed aboard a ship.
No one is groomed to be a captain’s dinner companion and placed aboard a ship unless they are an establishment troll.
I’ve seen no evidence of evolution anywhere in the world.  I am well traveled enough to announce there is too much diversity and contrast in nature, for the theory to have merit.
Nowadays these “scientists” use a microscope to support the theory of missing links. The diverse beauty in nature, and the striking contrasts, destroys a world that should be a blur of similarity.
At the microscopic level however, eureka! The extinction rate of microbes is accelerating because of our poisoning of the planet!

But guess what. No matter how many times the microbe mutates, it’s still a microbe at the end of the day.

It will never grow legs.

Having to use a microscope to find a blurring of similarity to support the theory of evolution is their best stuff yet, but still pretty weak.microbe

Empirical evidence suggests intelligent design.

Thousands of species of unique distinctive characteristics. The blur of similarity I speak of is the missing links. There is no evidence of anything morphing. In between stuff doesn’t exist. We do not have any example of change showing a difference in one, more or less advanced, than another. If evolution had merit, it would be an ongoing process, and nature would be a blur of similarity.

I’ve been digging into dinosaurs. My conjecture is dinosaurs are an establishment hoax. All the bones in the museums are fake, after all.Kindom_zpsa6d24e8a The real ones are under lock and key. Only folks able to create an entire skeleton from a single bone chip are allowed in to see. The establishment uses our law enforcement in that regard if you study “Sue” the tyrannosaurus-rex found in South Dakota. Quite the fishy story. I intend to visit the La Brea tar pits to see what material is there. It’s too soon for me to make a call on the idea of it all being a hoax. So far I’ve seen enough to make me suspicious. For now I’ve been busy being horrified at things like this:

How about a little bit of that? Being suspicious is playing it safe!

*****************

The enemy is the establishment itself, with it’s wars and poisoning of nature.Fukushima

As a natural born citizen I have a right and a need to know the truth. I am very suspicious that we have been lied to, or not being told the whole story, about a great many things.

It’s starting to look like we’re being lied to about everything, especially anything big.

My research into Chemtrails yields it’s only defense so far as I can see is the old ‘dilution is the solution’ argument. The same ‘dilution is the solution’ argument is spewed by officials that advise us not to worry about the Fukushima disaster.

We have unexplained fish die offs and alarming defoliation of forests.walrus-alaska.si

 

What we see the establishment using to blame on climate change is more likely the Pacific is so hot the walrus is just taking a break from the radiation. No really. Prove their ‘scientist’ conjecture is more valid than my common sense.

 

 

 

A jet contrail that consists of water vapor that dissipates quickly is not what I’m seeing in the skies. When I was a kid all jet contrails disappeared quickly and the only ones that stuck around were from the skywriting above the County Fair.

Chemtrails

My concern is that Chemtrails could be poisonous, cumulative, permanent, and irreversible.

So instead of talking about Chemtrails, we have a debate about global warming and climate change?

 

 

 

What about Fukushima? What is the counts per minute in your area? Back in 1986 we had honest investigative reporting about Chernobyl circumnavigating the globe.

There is an out of control nuclear disaster in Japan spewing radiation into the environment since March 2011. One meltdown after the other.

********************

Above you can review a scientist Kevin Kamps, who reports that the types of radiation coming from Fukushima is so nasty, that just one speck of it lodged in our bodies can cause cancer. The bigger the dose the faster our demise. And FOX News is telling us it isn’t over yet: fukushima
Where are the Geiger counters? Where are the radiation monitoring stations? Is anyone on the California coast keeping tabs on what has to be rising levels given the unabated spewing for four years now from Fukushima?

How about the rising levels of radiation from Fukushima?Pacific

I wanted to do something!

So I thought…

Why not start at the top?

If everyone stopped borrowing money it would be a revolution without firing a shot. Can we do it?



Do not click the ‘Donate’ button, save your money. I’m fine. It wouldn’t even be tax deductible. I can afford to host this page on my own, and I do so because my conscience compels me to weigh in.

 

STOP BORROWING MONEY!

If everyone stopped borrowing money it would be a revolution without firing a shot.

 

Bulldozing private property and putting the bloody soldier boots to the heads of children now orphaned, upset, and homeless, is what the illegitimate Israeli occupation of Palestine is all about. Missiles are fired at rock throwing babies. Review what Carter had to say again:

Reflect how the Jewish owned media dismisses former President Jimmy Carter for saying so! Who would have more inside knowledge? A former President of the United States? Or a talking head from the establishment?

The establishment loathes us all and wants to depopulate the planet. As opposed to “go forth and multiply”…

What we need is another establishment turncoat. I still pray that Obama will become an establishment turncoat, and live through it, to end the Fed, bring our troops home, and abolish the IRS. The government needs to be returned to the sovereign states.



Check out JFK’s speech to the press at the Waldorf/Astoria Hotel in N.Y. on April 27,1961:

click here to read a speech from President Kennedy

Secret societies, secret proceedings, and secret oaths, are the power behind the monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that uses covert means to expand it’s sphere of influence by censoring the news.

The foreign policy of the United States of America is determined by the establishment or ‘powers that be’. Instead of we the people governing ourselves with our own self determination, we borrow money from the establishment’s bank. It makes us beholden.

Here is an accurate illustration of how we are really governed by the top down, establishment style, described well enough by Retired General Wesley Clark:

I met Dr. Ron Paul, May 1, 2012.
RPandDL
It was a fundraising event held at the Ayres Hotel, right off the 405 Rosecrans exit here in Los Angeles. It was a political awakening for myself.

I was a “low information”, rarely voting voter, who picked D instead of R.

I introduced myself to Ron Paul when we met: “Hi.” (shook his hand) “My name is David Lango. I have been a registered democrat my whole life, and I have never voted against my union paycheck. Ever.”

Ron Paul answered with “I don’t have anything against unions as long as that’s what everyone wants. I believe it is wrong to force a person to join a union against their will.”

So I started reading and reading and I am still reading!
Good grief, I’ve been supporting a socialistic ideology that is a prelude to Communism! And I admit! One size does not fit all!

I have reviewed much of Alex Jones’ material. I would like to point out that his wife is Jewish, and he doesn’t come right out and denounce Rothschild Zionism like David Icke does.


I review all this material, the stuff I like best is from Jesse Ventura, even though he is a self described atheist. I review all this with the skepticism needed to play it safe.

A better use of one’s research time can easily be found.

Much can be learned by reading books from Jewish authors like Jonathan Cahn, who wrote “The Mystery of the Shemitah”. Although this author will not speak out against Rothschild Zionism, the material he presents is very educational. I doubt any Jewish author would veer from the official 9/11 narrative.

Jews may well be waiting for the Messiah, but fear to speak out against the political ideology of Zionism. Or the Synagogue of Satan, would be more accurate. The Talmud is not the bible, folks. It’s a vile compilation of the scribes and pharisees reprimanded by Jesus the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus is Lord. If you’re still repeating the television mantra of “Israel is God’s chosen people” after giving consideration to the facts I’ve presented…

…the point is, not all Jews are “Zionists”, and certainly, not all Zionists are “Jews”…

Zionism ‘is’ the ‘New World Order’ being foisted by the PTB.
**********
How about we the people governing ourselves?
**********
We all should write to our locally elected Sheriffs in support of the Second Amendment.

The U.S. Constitution provides law enforcement to be of the people, and the people to vote for it’s style with a locally elected Sheriff.

People will stick up for their rights more readily if their Sheriff has their back, and vice versa. Sadly, Connecticut disbanded the Sheriff’s Department altogether, and doesn’t even have one. Delaware stripped the Sheriff of his ability to make an arrest!

Only a locally elected Sheriff has any merit to enforce the law. Cliven Bundy is right on this. A BLM agent should have no gun issued by the establishment to do their job. Cliven has no problem with them exercising their 2nd amendment right; he has a problem with them being armed by the establishment with any authority to enforce local law!

Sheriff Gillespie of Clark County Nevada simply stepped aside and allowed the Fed to send in men armed with government weapons. A Sheriff has the authority to send the Fed packing back to D.C. empty handed. Harry Reid gave the embarrassing Gillespie “Sheriff of the Year” award.

This is a public discussion that needs to be addressed. I insist that the ‘Federal Government’ should never be allowed to own or control any land at all. Land belongs to the sovereign States, not the Fed. The salt in the wound is property tax. States should never be allowed to levy ‘property tax’. Either we own property, or we ARE property, concerning sovereign States.

One of the best ways to help is to spread this link around and get it in front of our service members in the military and everyone in law enforcement, and anyone with a government job:

***********

No man escapes when freedom fails, the best men rot in filthy jails. And those who cried, “appease appease” are hung by those they tried to please.

If our representatives loathed to spend any of our money, it dollarwould grow in the United States Treasury. It would end the need for any credit from a bank, and our money would be worth more as time went by instead.

.

.AIPAC

Netanyahu is the Rothschild puppet in charge of starting WWIII.

The average American walking the streets of the U.S., harbors little of the prejudice that we are portrayed as on television. It is the establishment itself whose hearts are filled with the hate they accuse us of.

We need to stand up to this illegitimate establishment, that would have us all unarmed in public. Obama’s dismissal of the Prime Minister of Israel’s visit was weak. I hope Obama becomes an establishment turncoat and spills the beans. Obama should have arrested Netanyahu for being complicit in the 9/11 attack as soon as he landed. Obama should have also arrested Boehner and the other Zionists in our Congress that invited this war criminal. Hillary should be hung for deleting her emails. Remember what our Vice President Joe Biden confessed: “I may not be Jewish, but I’m a Zionist!”, and even more famous: “…get a shotgun…”
That is all.

Practice makes perfect. Grow your own food. Keep your powder dry.

If our outgo exceeds our income, our upkeep will be our downfall.extending frameleftdachshund

    Myths and Facts of Water Storage
    By Kellene Bishop, Preparedness Pro on 11 August 2009 – 3:49pm

    Water Storage Myth: Treat your water and then store it. Water Storage Fact: Actually, if you use regular tap water, it’s already treated. There’s no need to add any additional chemicals to it when it’s just going to be sitting in a container. If your water needs treatment, do so at the point of using it, not prior to storing it.

    Water Storage Myth: Don’t store your water barrels on cement. Water Storage Fact: Actually, there’s always a missing component to this myth. The key is not to store your water barrels on HEATED cement, and even that’s questionable advice. To store your water in your basement on the cement floor is just fine. There’s no need to make your barrels less stable by putting them on 2 x 4s. Cement only leaches chemicals when it gets hot. If you’re going to store your water in your garage, where the sun heats up the connecting driveway cement, then yes, I’d consider raising your barrels up on floor boards or such. Water Storage Myth: Stored water tastes bad. Water Storage Fact: Stored water is merely lacking oxygen. You can get it back to tasting great simply by pouring it back and forth a couple of times between a couple of pitchers, or glasses. This will infuse oxygen back into your water.

    Water Storage Myth: I’ve got a pool out back for our water storage, so I don’t need to store any otherwise. Water Storage Fact: One who has this opinion is taking a big risk, one which I would not venture to take. It’s presuming that no animal waste, nuclear waste, or other biological poisoning will enter the pool water. Also, if there is a water shortage in your area, and your big pool is out there for all of the desperate folks to see, you’re simply begging for some dangerous self-defense scenarios. You might as well leave your car doors unlocked with your wallet on the front seat. In the event of a real emergency, I would ALWAYS recommend that families store water as well as presuming that their pool water supply will be available, thus preventing it from outdoor contaminates and ensuring that you have water to survive in the event of all possible scenarios. Water Storage Myth: I have iodine tablets and I know where the river is. Water Storage Fact: You and everybody else. Just how long do you think that river supply is going to be available to you and your family? How useful will that river supply be to you in the event of a flood? Iodine tables don’t do too well with cleaning out home and body parts. How much vital physical energy will it take you to fetch enough water for you and your family to survive long term? People who have this attitude sure are taking a huge gamble. Remember that conserving your own physical energy should be your first priority in an emergency. So purposefully putting yourself in a situation in which you need to work hard for water is short-sighted. Also, you’re assuming that your iodine tablets will take care of whatever is in the outdoor water, regardless of what it’s been exposed to. (See previous myth/fact example) If you have water stored in quality containers in your home, you can save your physical energy for other more important tasks, and you will ensure that your water supply is protected and is YOURS. Not only that, but chemical treatment of water is not the safest. Heating your water, such as boiling it, is by far the safest method of treating your water. You’re also assuming that you won’t be quarantined and that the streets will be safe to travel.

    Water Storage Myth: Boil your water for 10 minutes in order for it to be safe. Water Storage Fact: Actually, you do not need to boil your water. Boiling the water is actually a waste of precious fuel. Water boils at 212 degrees. However, getting your water to a heat of 160 degrees for 30 minutes will kill all pathogens, and 185 degrees at for only 3 minutes. This is true even at a high altitude. (Note that my preferred way of heating water is in a solar oven. No fuel waste!) Water Storage Myth: You only need 2 weeks worth of water for your family. Water Storage Fact: Two weeks is only enough to get you from one point to another. Long-term survival will require a year’s supply of water. The magnitude of a disaster which would create a long-term water shortage, would also require 3.5 years of repairs in order for you to have the kind of water access you are accustomed to now. So really, a one year supply of water is still a minimalistic “get-us-through-until-we-can-find-a-good-well-or-other-water-supply” kind of storage. And besides, if you’re not storing a year’s supply of water, no one else is. So now let’s compound your problem exponentially in your community and discover just how fast the “native get restless.” Water Storage Myth: I don’t need to drink a gallon of water a day! Water Storage Fact: The recommend amount of one gallon per person, per day is not just for drinking. It’s for bathing, (as hygiene is critical), sanitation (you gotta manually flush your stuff in an emergency, folks), medical (some instances require more drinking water than others), cooking, and cleaning. Next time you think one gallon of water a day sounds like a lot, measure how much water you put in the pot when you boil water, wash your dishes, or wash your clothes. It’s a LOT more than you think! Also, your kidneys process the equivalent of 400-500 gallons of water per DAY! If you don’t feed your body new water, then the old water ends up looking like nasty oil in a car that hasn’t been changed in 10,000 miles. When times are tough, you don’t want to try and use that kidney of yours as a commercial slime filter, do you? Water Storage Myth: Food is more important than water. Water Storage Fact: Nope. You can go several days without food. You cannot live without water for longer than ONE day without seriously beginning to tax your body. It only goes downhill from there. Without water, your muscles lose their elasticity, your organs shut down, and your senses are dulled. None of these are situations you want to occur during an emergency. Water Storage Myth: I don’t need water. I’ve got a year’s supply of Gatorade. Water Storage Fact: Liquid intake is not the same as water intake. The moment you add ANYTHING to your water, your body no longer takes it in as water. It has to process it, filter it, and THEN use what water is left in the liquid before it benefits from it. If your body has to work hard to process the liquids it takes in, it’s using more vital energy. In a perfect world, your water drink for refreshment would consist of distilled water, as that’s what you body can use the most readily.

    Don’t Store Water in Milk Jugs! photo c/o chartertn.net
    Don’t Store Water in Milk Jugs!

    Water Storage Myth: “I’ve got 2-liter bottles, old milk jugs, and juice bottles full of water. I’m set.” AND “Don’t reuse soda pop or juice bottles for water storage. They leach chemicals” Water Storage Fact: A blanket statement cannot be made on this matter and still be accurate. So let’s clarify. The FDA requires that the plastic used for juices and soda pop be food grade in anticipation of plastic leaching into the contents. However, constant exposure to 80 degrees+ is required to initiate this breakdown. Additionally, the Society of Plastics Industry have provided us with a rating system which tells us what kind of plastic we’re dealing with. It’s perfectly safe to use plastic containers which have a “PET or PETE” classification so long as you do not repeatedly empty, wash with warm, soapy water, and then refill again and again. Use the soda pop or juice if you will, and then fill it with tap water and then store it for ideal storage and health conditions. Milk jugs, on the other hand usually have an “HDPE” rating and are not suitable for long-term water storage use. Reusing 2-liter and gallon juice and soda bottles is certainly better than nothing and they help you to make use of the wasted space that some of our other packaging and storing methods leave us. So, pay attention the to rating/classification of the plastic. A person doesn’t have to look far to find all kinds of gloom and doomers talk about how the plastic water bottles take an eternity to break down in land-fills. But these same gloom folks warn against reusing them for anything else claiming you will leach plastic or chemicals in your water. Uh…which is it? You can’t have it both ways. To recap, reusing your bottles once or even twice for water storage is perfectly safe if the plastic is rated “PET or PETE”. If there are chemicals leached into the contents of the bottle, they are no where near as bad for you as the chemical, aspertame, that’s found in most diet or sugar free drinks. Ugh! That stuff turns into formaldehyde gradually as it hits 90 degrees. Um…what’s your internal body temperature? By filtering or treating your water AFTER it’s come out of the bottles, you’ll eliminate minute amount of the leaching chemicals, if any, regardless. And besides, that the whole “plastic will leach into my water” doesn’t typically take place without the presence of intense heat. For large amount of water storage in one container, you will want to make sure you don’t use recycled polyethylene barrels as the recycling process compromises the integrity of the material over the years. Large amounts of water weigh a LOT, so that’s definitely not something I’d risk. Water Storage Myth: I’ve got ten 55 gallon drums full of water. I’m set. Water Storage Fact: It’s great that you’ve got that much water. However, consider also having some water that’s more portable as well. It will make your life physically easier in surviving a long-term emergency situation. And by all means, make sure you’ve got the hardware necessary to get your water out of those big drums such as a hand pump, wrench, etc. Join us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter here To see our upcoming event schedule, click here Check out our inhome-course programs Subscribe to Preparedness Pro today and never miss a thing!

    Excellent post, Kellene. The Utah Preppers just wrapped up a group buy on high-capacity water tanks. They are an great way to store a year’s supply of water and are much more convenient for rotating and using your water. While the group buy is over, we may still be able to get a discount on one of these 275 or 525 gallon tanks for individuals in Utah County. Anyone else in the country is welcome to contact us as well to see what options there are.

    A practice from when I was a child that is still hanging around is putting bleach in your water. While bleach can be used to treat water in an emergency, I sure wouldn’t want to drink bleach flavored water if I could avoid it. I support your believe that there is no need to treat water coming out of the tap in most metropolitan areas.

    Let’s face it. Emergency preparedness is hardly ever convenient. I know that I can always find a way or reason not to do something. But when things go bad, I’m certain that all of those reasons will seem insubstantial. Don’t you?
    I don’t know what your living situation is, but you can always store water gallons to the side of your house. If you get the sturdy ones and don’t fill them to the max, they will be ok, even in the dead of winter. It will mean that you will need to thaw them when you need access to them, but that’s what I would store a bit of water inside the home for, in such an instance. Share with me what your particular challenges are and I’ll try to address them.

Dont’ fill them all the way full. Fill them only the 55 gallon line in order to allow for expansion due to the heat. We seem to forget that our water that gets to our homes travels through pipes that are exposed to the sun every day. You’ll be fine.

    Check your water against the resources at the NY Times:
    http://projects.nytimes.com/toxic-waters

    In an article by Amy Goodman (http://bit.ly/15wsTA) that refers to the Times study, I learned that “Forty percent of the nation’s community water systems violated the Safe Drinking Water Act at least once, exposing over 23 million people to potential danger.”

    Goodman goes on:

    “An investigation by the New York Times has found chemical companies have violated the Clean Water Act more than 500,000 times in the last five years. Most of the violations have gone unpunished, with state regulators taking significant action in just three percent of all cases.

    “Although some of the cases entailed minor violations, a majority of 60 percent were deemed to be in ‘significant noncompliance.’

    So, before you store water, check the Times to see whether your water is at risk.

    you can buy some of the barrels used for much less, but use that water for your non-drinking water.

Yes, you should still purify your drinking water prior to consuming it after such storage, to be safe.

    Stockpiling an arsenal of bleach

    It may not result in total breakdown, but storing bleach is likely to lessen the effectiveness of the product. Sodium hypochlorite solutions have been shown to decompose rapidly, so much so that the EPA requires manufacturers of bleaches with 5.25 to 12.5 percent sodium hypochlorite to add special language to their label: “Degrades with age. Use a test kit and increase dosage as necessary to obtain the required level of available chlorine.”

    Storing a year’s supply of water for a whole family (9 in my case) is an absolutely absurd idea. I would need 65 barrels in order to do that for my family. You tell others to store some outside. Is that any different than those who say they are storing it in their pool? No.. just easier for those who are desperate to steal it. Let’s face it. If there is a disaster that requires me to have over 3000 gallons of water to survive then we are not going to survive. SImple as that. I believe that the directive to store 2 weeks of water is at least possible. I have 600 gallons in my home. I am happy with that. If any of you are storing over 3000 gallons in your home (without a pool), send me a photo. I would like to see that. As for storing them outside, our climate goes to -40 degrees in the winter. That is going to freeze those barrels solid and they will take days to thaw out. This is if you can get them in the house but that would take a lot of wasted energy now wouldn’t it! I think posts like this simply scare people into doing nothing! Telling us to have a year’s supply of water is simply fear mongering… nothing more.

    The type of emergency
    Submitted by JLA on 13 November 2013 – 9:01am

    The type of emergency situations that would lead to a real long-term survival situation in this country are few, but they are very real. The biggest threat is an EMP, whether a naturally occurring event from the sun or as a result of a high altitude nuclear detonation such as the ones Iran has been practicing for lately. (You know, the same Iran that has been desperately trying to finish developing its nukes, and the same Iran that has promised to wipe us from the face of the planet more times than I could even begin to count.) A congressional study anticipated casualty rates of up to 90% among the American population in the event of such an attack–mostly due to starvation and a lack of clean drinking water & medical care. Predictably they chose to do nothing to prepare for the affects of an EMP and continued wasting money as usual.

    The moral of the story here is that unless you live somewhere that you have ready access to a constant supply of drinking water even in a grid-down situation, such as a well with a hand pump, you had better be stockpiling water in whatever way you can. The threat of a long-term grid-down situation is becoming more likely, or at least less unlikely, with every passing day. Should such an attack occur it will take an estimated 12-18 months for services to be restored, possibly a lot longer. Your life, your death, your call.

    Apparently Lorin, I’ve pressed on something that you’re not comfortable or mentally prepared to deal with just yet. And that’s fine. There are many that feel the way you do about every aspect of emergency preparedness, not just water. But their arguments are shallow and will be meaningless when, not if, a dire time occurs. At least you’re a lot further along than others with being willing to store a 2 weeks supply.

    In order to get frozen barrels from outside, in, simply use a portable dolly. Even though I’m undertall and overweight, I’ve been able to easily manage that. This is also why I specifically mention in the article to be sure that you have some water that’s not frozen inside.

    At present, my husband and I have 2,000 gallons of water–no pool, as there is just the two of us. However, we are still in the process of obtaining more. I’ve actually already published a picture of one cluster of that water supply–about 400 gallons.

    If I’m a “fearmonger…nothing more” then so is the Bible as it’s full of woes, warnings, and very graphic scenes of promise of what will indeed come. I’m hopeful that no one reads the Bible and then throws up their hands and says “then we are not going to survive.” As I’m certain that that was not the Lord’s intent in warning us. Along with His warnings are several pleadings that we prepare, be watchful, and be ready. I don’t believe He’s giving us futile instructions in doing so.

    Water not for consumption: I have been saving my old white Clorox Bleach (one gallon plastic) jugs for years. These are fine for storing water for household uses such as doing laundry, dishes, flushing commodes, cleaning the floor, and cleaning up other minor messes in emergencies. I save my tap water (from a well) in these as they are more sturdy than the plastic milk jugs.
    For potable/drinking water I have used these in short term use for storms and minor power failures.

    For those that have a home/
    Submitted by Survival Writer on 15 November 2013 – 10:59pm

    For those that have a home/ shelter in the event of a catastrophic event, water storage can be in specially designed underground tanks. Tanks come in all sizes from 250 gallons and up to very large. The tanks are in compliance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulation 21 CFR 177.150 (c) 3.1 and 3.2, completely safe for human consumption of potable drinking water. These tanks are designed to withstand the pressure of direct burial, but must not be located under a driveway, or any area with vehicular traffic. A 250 gallon tank cost about $400, but properly plumbed can have a constant supply of fresh water.

    An excellent way to bury these tanks is to install plumbing to attach
    them to the public water supply, and to constantly keep them filled
    with fresh water by drawing the household water from them. When
    water for the home is used the public water supply will flow through
    the tank(s) to keep them full. If your local water pressure is low you
    can add an electric pump to provide the needed pressure additional to that of the natural line pressure. Pumps can be purchased to run from either a 12 volt source, or one with a 110 volt source. If you are in to the habit of survival preparedness the 12 volt pump is a good choice as you can use a backup battery system that is connected to a charging method to keep them at full charge. If you use a pump
    it is wise to install a float to shut off water from the source when the tank level is at a certain level. Automatic fill valves that connect to the pump will control the water input to keep your tank(s) at a certain level.

    All of these tanks have a ‘manhole’ access so that the access can
    be at, or just below ground level. during times of absolutely no electricity, and no backup system, a manual pump can be used to draw water. A battery backup system of 12 volts, and an inverter if the pump is a 110 volt unit is more than sufficient to pump the water needed.

    Of course, this is all with the assumption that you own the property
    where you bury your tanks, or have the ability to remove them when
    you might move.

    Some of the manufacturers making these tanks are: Norwesco, Ace
    Roto Mold, & Snyder Industries using Virgin Polyethylene resin for
    the tanks known as Underground Ribbed Cistern Water Storage Tanks.

    Again, they do meet all the requirements of the FDA for potable water storage.

    “President Obama,

    The foreign policy of the United States of America has been bad for a long time.

    Unconstitutional foreign entanglements are the cause of events like 09-11-2001. Good job hunting down and killing Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.

    It is important to now repair our bad foreign policy. Bring all of our troops home to defend our country, protect our territorial waters, and secure our borders.

    Reopen our military bases, and close all military bases abroad.

    Stop all foreign aid. End foreign entanglements!

    Return any attack on our country with such force as to end it quickly.

    (sign your name)

    Right after I sent this letter, “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” added me as a contact on YouTube.

    Some time went by after that, and then President Obama wrote me back!

    It’s an official letter with the Seal of the U.S. pressed into the paper at the top, and it appears to be personally signed, but I seriously doubt Barry took any time from his golfing, and is more likely computer generated.

    Picture of the letter
    ************************

    “Dear David:

    Thank you for writing. I have heard from many Americans about our Nation’s foreign policy, and I appreciate your perspective. As President, my highest priority is the safety of the American people. My Administration is using every element of our national power to keep our country secure, prosperous, and free. We have renewed our leadership in the world by strengthening old alliances and forging new partnerships to meet common challenges-from preventing terrorist attacks, reversing the global economic crisis, and responding to pandemic disease to confronting climate change, preventing the spread of nuclear weapons, and providing relief from natural crises. After more than a decade of sacrifice, the tide of war is finally turning. The war in Iraq is over. The number of our troops in harm’s way has been cut in half, and more will soon be coming home. In Afghanistan, we have begun a transition to Afghan responsibility for security, and we have a clear path to fulfill our mission. That is why, on May 2, 2012, I signed a historic Strategic Partnership Agreement between our countries as the war comes to an end. As in Iraq, we are building an enduring partnership to strengthen Afghan sovereignty and stability while advancing our shared goal of delivering justice to al-Qa’ida’s leadership-taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders, including Osama bin Laden. The goal I set to defeat al-Qa’ida and deny it the chance to rebuild is now within our reach. The courage and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform has promoted peace and prosperity from Germany to Korea and enabled democracy to take hold in places like Libya. Our commitment to global security will never waver, but in a world in which threats are more diffuse and missions are more complex, America cannot act alone. We will continue to align our policies with those with whom we share common values and interests. That is why NATO remains indispensable to our security. At the NATO Summit I hosted in May 2012, we took steps to ensure the Alliance has the capabilities it needs to meet 21st-century threats. At the same time, we must also strengthen the United Nations and regional peacekeeping capabilities. America will remain committed to governments that reflect the will of their people. I have an unyielding belief that all people share some basic aspirations: to support our families, to maintain the freedom to choose our leaders, to worship as we please, and to live in peace and security. These are not just American ideas: they are human rights-and we will support them everywhere. I know the challenges faced by the international community can be met if we commit ourselves to a sustained effort to secure the universal human rights of freedom and dignity for all our children.

    Sincerely, Barack Obama”

    Dear President Obama,

    Thank you for establishing a correspondence by writing me back. I addressed our bad foreign policy in my first letter. In your reply, you indicated support for the United Nations. I am inspired to be more specific in detailing why our foreign policy is bad. I was alarmed to read your idea is to continue our bad foreign policy.

    We the people do not want “to live in peace and security”, if I may quote you out of context. If you would replace the word “security”, with the word “liberty”, I could calm down more easily, and trust we are heading in the right direction.

    There is a current public worry that our Republic is heading in the wrong direction!

    Our U.S. Constitution that you are to uphold, does not share your effort toward worldwide poverty and war, with the United Nations in charge of it all.

    The very existence of the United Nations is an affront to the sovereignty of the United States of America. It should be dismantled, not “strengthened”.

    In the United States of America, the Korean war was initially described by President Harry S. Truman as a “police action” as it was conducted under the auspices of the United Nations. That was WHEN our foreign policy became bad. Since then our economy became bad because of globalization. I am pleading a case for LIBERTY.

    We need a non-interventionist foreign policy.

    We need to shrink Uncle Sam.

    If Congress only passed balanced budgets, wealth would build in the U.S. Treasury. Free markets could establish interest rates, instead of the Fed. The States can compete in improving education by eliminating the Department of Education.

    I recommend taking advice from Representative Dr. Ron Paul, from Texas. He has a good plan for Uncle Sam, a LOT of good ideas.

    Sound money.

    Liberty.

    That’s the kind of freedom I hope our government defends.

    Reopening all of the military bases that we have closed here in the U.S. and bringing our troops home, would boost local economies. Just that right there, closing our military bases abroad, and stopping all foreign aid, would help Congress more easily pass a balanced budget.

    Your greatest achievement could be strength, peace, and liberty for the United States, instead of helping the U.S. “globally” fall off of a fiscal cliff, trying to fund warfare and welfare, for the entire planet, succumbing to the United Nations.

    It’s common knowledge that big banks fund both sides of war throughout history, and that the United Nations is rife with agenda from rich powerful secret societies.

    You, Barack, are at the helm.

    You can take your foot off the gas, ease on the brakes, and steer us back in the right direction.

    Please.
    Thank you.
    You are welcome.
    sincerely yours,

    David Lango

    Obama has yet to reply a second time.

      I have since learned I was wrong to write Obama that the Korean War was when our foreign policy went bad. World War One was also based on establishment lies. The Korean War gave legitimacy to the United Nations, which is a horrid affront to our sovereignty.

      Ray Daniels comments on a YouTube video of Jimmy Carter being interviewed:

      WORLD WAR I broke out in the summer of 1914. Within two years Germany had won the war.
      The German submarines, which were a surprise to the world, had swept all the British convoys from the Atlantic Ocean and leaving Britain without ammunition and food for her soldiers.
      At that time the French army had mutinied. They lost 600,000 of the flower of French youth in the defense of Verdun on the Somme. The Russian army was defecting. And the Italian army had collapsed.
      Not a shot had been fired on German soil yet Germany was offering England peace terms. They offered England a negotiated peace on what the lawyers call a status quo ante basis which means: “Let’s call the war off and let everything be as it was before the war started.”
      England, in the summer of 1916, was considering Germany’s peace terms. They had no choice. It was either accepting this negotiated peace that Germany was offering them or going on with the war and being totally defeated.
      While that was going on, the Zionists in Germany, led by the Jew, Chaim Weitzman, who later became the 1st President of Israel, went to the British War Cabinet and said: “Don’t capitulate to Germany. You can win this war if the United States comes in as your ally. We can arrange this. But in return, you must promise us Palestine once the tide turns in your favor.”
       
      THE ZIONIST JEW CHAIM WEITZMAN was a Russian born chemist who moved to England in 1904. By 1915, Weitzman had developed a chemical process of producing acetone from maize. Acetone was a vital ingredient in production of artillery shells which Britain and her allies had a short supply of in the beginning of World War I.
      It was during this period that Weitzman, through the mediation of Walter Rothschild, met Sir Arthur James Balfour, the First Lord of the Admiralty, and David Lloyd George, Britain’s Minister of Munitions.
      Both of these political figures were under the influence of the Rothschild banking dynasty, of which the Zionist Jew, Walter Rothschild, was the head. It did not hurt Weitzman’s goals when in 1916 Lloyd George became the British Prime Minister and Arthur Balfour the Foreign Secretary.
      It was through this connection that the Balfour Declaration granted “a Jewish homeland within Palestine.” The Balfour Declaration was officially written to Walter Rothschild in 1919. The Balfour Declaration was merely Great Britain’s promise to pay the Zionists what they had agreed upon for getting the United States into the war.
      During this time period in America, President Woodrow Wilson was campaigning for his re-election in 1916 on his popular campaign slogan, “He Kept Us out of War.” But on April 2, 1917, President Wilson addressed both houses of Congress and pleaded with them to declare war against Germany. What made Wilson change his mind?
       
      SHORTLY BEFORE PRESIDENT WILSON’S RE-ELECTION, he received a Jewish visitor in the White House by the name of Samuel Untermeyer.
      The Jew Untermeyer was a prominent New York City attorney of the Law Firm, Guggenheim, Untermeyer, & Marshall.
      The Firm had as one of its main clients, Kuhn Loeb Bank, of which Jacob Schiff, an agent of Walter Rothschild, was the head. Both Untermeyer and Schiff contributed generously to the National Democratic Committee that installed President Wilson in the White House in both of his elections.
      Untermeyer informed President Wilson that he had been retained to bring a Breach of Promise action against President Wilson. Untermeyer’s client was the former wife of a professor at Princeton University at the same time that Wilson was a professor at Princeton University. Untermeyer informed Wilson that his client was willing to accept $40,000 in lieu of commencing the Breach of Promise action.
      Untermeyer produced a packet of letters from his pocket written by President Wilson to his colleague’s wife when they were neighbors at Princeton University. These letters established the fact that an illicit relationship had existed between Wilson and the wife of his Princeton colleague. Wilson immediately acknowledged his authorship of the letters. Untermeyer then informed Wilson that his former sweetheart was in dire need of $40,000.
      President Wilson informed Untermeyer that he did not have the $40,000 to pay his blackmailer. Untermeyer then volunteered to give Wilson’s former sweetheart the $40,000 out of his own pocket – but on one condition: that President Wilson promise to appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, the Zionist and Talmudic Jew, Louis Dembitz Brandeis.
      Without further talk, President Wilson accepted Mr. Untermeyer’s generous offer. Then on June 5 1916, nearly one year before Wilson asked Congress to declare war on Germany, Wilson appointed the Zionist Jew, Louis Brandeis, to the Supreme Court.
      Many were surprised that Wilson, the son of a Christian minister, would appoint to the highest court in the land the first Jewish Supreme Court Justice in US history.
       
      President Wilson and Justice Brandeis became unusually intimate friends. Brandeis knew the circumstances behind his appointment by President Wilson and Wilson feared him because of it.
      Justice Brandeis, through the advice of his Zionist colleague, Rabbi Stephen Wise, volunteered his opinion to President Wilson that the sinking of the S.S. Sussex by a German submarine in the English channel with the loss of lives of US citizens justified a US Declaration of War against Germany.
      Relying to a great extent upon the legal opinion of Justice Brandeis, (as well as fear of what Brandeis knew of Wilson’s illicit affair), President Wilson appealed to Congress to declare war against Germany.
      This Congress did, on April 6, 1917. The Declaration of War against Germany by the United States guaranteed the Jews throughout the world that Palestine would be turned over to them upon the defeat of Germany even though Britain had already promised it to Trans-Jordan upon the defeat of the Ottoman Empire.
      Indeed, Congress declared war against Germany because of Wilson’s assertion that Germany had sunk the S.S. Sussex and that US citizens aboard had perished with the ship. But after General Pershing’s troops were fighting in Europe, the hoax was exposed. The S.S. Sussex had not been sunk and no citizens of the US had lost their lives.
      But now the United States was officially at war in Europe. In this war, 115,516 American soldiers were killed and 202,002 were maimed for life.
      That is what the Anti-Christian Jews of the world conspired to achieve in their crooked diplomatic underworld.

      is the man responsible for the disappearance of $2.6 TRILLION that went missing
      from the Pentagon books which was announced by Donald Rumsfeld on 10th
      September, 2001. The story was buried under 9/11’s rubble. The specific section
      of the Pentagon that was “hit” or “blown up” contained the
      years budgetary information, as well as accountants, bookkeepers and budget
      analysts; many of whom died on 9/11.
      In May
      2001, when Zakheim served at the Pentagon, it was an SPS (his firm’s)
      subsidiary, Tridata Corporation, that oversaw the investigation of the first

      According
      to the SPC website, a recent customer at that time was Eglin AFB, located in

    A secret society is a club or organization whose activities, events, and inner functioning are concealed from non-members. The society may or may not attempt to conceal its existence. The term usually excludes covert groups, such as intelligence agencies or guerrilla insurgencies, that hide their activities and memberships but maintain a public presence. The exact qualifications for labeling a group as a secret society are disputed, but definitions generally rely on the degree to which the organization insists on secrecy, and might involve the retention and transmission of secret knowledge, denial of membership or knowledge of the group, the creation of personal bonds between members of the organization, and the use of secret rites or rituals which solidify members of the group.

      President and the Press” Speech (April 27, 1961)
      John F. Kennedy

      Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen:
      I appreciate very much your generous invitation to be here tonight.
      You bear heavy responsibilities these days and an article I read some time ago reminded me of how particularly heavily the burdens of present day events bear upon your profession.
      You may remember that in 1851 the New York Herald Tribune, under the sponsorship and publishing of Horace Greeley, employed as its London correspondent an obscure journalist by the name of Karl Marx.
      We are told that foreign correspondent Marx, stone broke, and with a family ill and undernourished, constantly appealed to Greeley and Managing Editor Charles Dana for an increase in his munificent salary of $5 per installment, a salary which he and Engels ungratefully labeled as the “lousiest petty bourgeois cheating.”
      But when all his financial appeals were refused, Marx looked around for other means of livelihood and fame, eventually terminating his relationship with the Tribune and devoting his talents full time to the cause that would bequeath to the world the seeds of Leninism, Stalinism, revolution and the Cold War.
      If only this capitalistic New York newspaper had treated him more kindly; if only Marx had remained a foreign correspondent, history might have been different. And I hope all publishers will bear this lesson in mind the next time they receive a poverty-stricken appeal for a small increase in the expense account from an obscure newspaper.
      I have selected as the title of my remarks tonight “The President and the Press.” Some may suggest that this would be more naturally worded “The President Versus the Press.” But those are not my sentiments tonight.
      It is true, however, that when a well-known diplomat from another country demanded recently that our State Department repudiate certain newspaper attacks on his colleague it was unnecessary for us to reply that this Administration was not responsible for the press, for the press had already made it clear that it was not responsible for this Administration.
      Nevertheless, my purpose here tonight is not to deliver the usual assault on the so-called one-party press. On the contrary, in recent months I have rarely heard any complaints about political bias in the press except from a few Republicans. Nor is it my purpose tonight to discuss or defend the televising of Presidential press conferences. I think it is highly beneficial to have some 20,000,000 Americans regularly sit in on these conferences to observe, if I may say so, the incisive, the intelligent and the courteous qualities displayed by your Washington correspondents.
      Nor, finally, are these remarks intended to examine the proper degree of privacy which the press should allow to any President and his family.
      If in the last few months your White House reporters and photographers have been attending church services with regularity, that has surely done them no harm.
      On the other hand, I realize that your staff and wire service photographers may be complaining that they do not enjoy the same green privileges at the local golf courses which they once did.
      It is true that my predecessor did not object as I do to pictures of one’s golfing skill in action. But neither on the other hand did he ever bean a Secret Service man. My topic tonight is a more sober one of concern to publishers as well as editors.
      I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a common danger. The events of recent weeks may have helped to illuminate that challenge for some; but the dimensions of its threat have loomed large on the horizon for many years. Whatever our hopes may be for the future—for reducing this threat or living with it—there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of its challenge to our survival and to our security—a challenge that confronts us in unaccustomed ways in every sphere of human activity.
      This deadly challenge imposes upon our society two requirements of direct concern both to the press and to the President—two requirements that may seem almost contradictory in tone, but which must be reconciled and fulfilled if we are to meet this national peril. I refer, first, to the need for far greater public information; and, second, to the need for far greater official secrecy.
      The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.
      But I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country’s peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort, based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of “clear and present danger,” the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public’s need for national security.
      Today no war has been declared—and however fierce the struggle may be—it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired.
      If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent.
      It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions—by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence—on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
      Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.
      Nevertheless, every democracy recognizes the necessary restraints of national security—and the question remains whether those restraints need to be more strictly observed if we are to oppose this kind of attack as well as outright invasion.
      For the facts of the matter are that this nation’s foes have openly boasted of acquiring through our newspapers information they would otherwise hire agents to acquire through theft, bribery or espionage; that details of this nation’s covert preparations to counter the enemy’s covert operations have been available to every newspaper reader, friend and foe alike; that the size, the strength, the location and the nature of our forces and weapons, and our plans and strategy for their use, have all been pinpointed in the press and other news media to a degree sufficient to satisfy any foreign power; and that, in at least one case, the publication of details concerning a secret mechanism whereby satellites were followed required its alteration at the expense of considerable time and money.
      The newspapers which printed these stories were loyal, patriotic, responsible and well-meaning. Had we been engaged in open warfare, they undoubtedly would not have published such items. But in the absence of open warfare, they recognized only the tests of journalism and not the tests of national security. And my question tonight is whether additional tests should not now be adopted.
      That question is for you alone to answer. No public official should answer it for you. No governmental plan should impose its restraints against your will. But I would be failing in my duty to the Nation, in considering all of the responsibilities that we now bear and all of the means at hand to meet those responsibilities, if I did not commend this problem to your attention, and urge its thoughtful consideration.
      On many earlier occasions, I have said—and your newspapers have constantly said—that these are times that appeal to every citizen’s sense of sacrifice and self-discipline. They call out to every citizen to weigh his rights and comforts against his obligations to the common good. I cannot now believe that those citizens who serve in the newspaper business consider themselves exempt from that appeal.
      I have no intention of establishing a new Office of War Information to govern the flow of news. I am not suggesting any new forms of censorship or new types of security classifications. I have no easy answer to the dilemma that I have posed, and would not seek to impose it if I had one. But I am asking the members of the newspaper profession and the industry in this country to reexamine their own responsibilities, to consider the degree and the nature of the present danger, and to heed the duty of self-restraint which that danger imposes upon us all.
      Every newspaper now asks itself, with respect to every story: “Is it news?” All I suggest is that you add the question: “Is it in the interest of the national security?” And I hope that every group in America—unions and businessmen and public officials at every level—will ask the same question of their endeavors, and subject their actions to this same exacting test.
      And should the press of America consider and recommend the voluntary assumption of specific new steps or machinery, I can assure you that we will cooperate whole-heartedly with those recommendations.
      Perhaps there will be no recommendations. Perhaps there is no answer to the dilemma faced by a free and open society in a cold and secret war. In times of peace, any discussion of this subject, and any action that results, are both painful and without precedent. But this is a time of peace and peril which knows no precedent in history.
      It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation—an obligation which I share. And that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people—to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need, and understand them as well—the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program and the choices that we face.
      No President should fear public scrutiny of his program. For from that scrutiny comes understanding; and from that understanding comes support or opposition. And both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.
      I not only could not stifle controversy among your readers—I welcome it. This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for, as a wise man once said: “An error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors; and we expect you to point them out when we miss them.
      Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed—and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law-maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment—the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution—not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”—but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.
      This means greater coverage and analysis of international news—for it is no longer far away and foreign but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security—and we intend to do it.
      It was early in the Seventeenth Century that Francis Bacon remarked on three recent inventions already transforming the world: the compass, gunpowder and the printing press. Now the links between the nations first forged by the compass have made us all citizens of the world, the hopes and threats of one becoming the hopes and threats of us all. In that one world’s efforts to live together, the evolution of gunpowder to its ultimate limit has warned mankind of the terrible consequences of failure.
      And so it is to the printing press—to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news—that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.

    Texas, California, and the Tale of the Coyote

    January 14, 2011 by Dan Mitchell

    CALIFORNIA: The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.

    1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi” and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.

    2. He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

    3. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 for testing it for diseases.

    4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

    5. The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.

You won’t even stand up for me in America because of my religious beliefs, and you want me to go somewhere and fight, when you won’t even stand up for my religious beliefs at home.” –Mohammed Ali

    The following is from one of our soldiers:

    POWERFUL STORY: Read this shocking account of how U.S. Iraq War veterans had their 9/11 patriotism crushed & replaced with something far more alarming…

    Someone asked:

    How do you Americans as a people walk around head held high, knowing that every few months your country is committing a 9/11 size atrocity to other people. Imagine if the 9/11 terror attacks were happening in america every few months. Again and again, innocent people dying all around you. Your brothers and sisters. For no reason.
    Daniel Crimmins from U.S. Army 3rd Infantry Division answered:

    “Many of us are unable. Many of us watched 9/11, and accepted the government and media’s definition of the attack as a act of war rather than a criminal action. A smaller portion, drifting along passively thought a major war was coming, that people we knew were going to fight and die. Some of us maybe worried about our younger brother being drafted, despite being in college. Now, it seems stupid, but in the 72 hours after 9/11, some Americans, maybe suffering from depression, certainly with a mind shaped by comic books and action movies, ate up the “us vs. them” good vs. evil rhetoric spouted by the cowboy in chief. After all, he was the president, and no matter how bright you might think yourself, you can still be swayed by passion and emotion, led to terrible decisions.

    Some of us, therefore, left our dorm rooms, and walked down Main Street to the recruiter’s office. Some of us were genuinely surprised the office wasn’t full to bursting of young men eager to avenge their fallen countrymen. Some of us were genuinely surprised when we had to push the recruiter to stop trying to sell desk jobs and just let us join the damn Infantry.

    Some of us got enlisted, then, and went down to Georgia, head high to mask the anxiety and fear they might have helped. Perhaps some number of Americans in this situation discovered that maybe it hadn’t been the best idea, but would be goddamned if they were going to admit it, and let everyone back home smuggly remark on how right they were.

    So they persevere. They learn to work as a unit, to look past personality issues, to see each other as Soldiers rather than as a race, or economic status, or any of the other things people hate about each other.

    They learn to kill.

    Then some of these people, perhaps while sitting hungover in the platoon area in the Republic of Korea hear that we have invaded Iraq. They have “Big Scary Bombs”, and Saddam Hussein, the secular Arab dictator had somehow colluded with the devoutly religious OBL to attack the US. They hated our freedom, you see.

    Then some of these young American men might transfer back to Georgia and be assigned to the 3rd Infantry Division, and end up in Iraq in January of 2005. And maybe these kids, still drunk on Fox News and fantasies of glory and renown being enough to win their ex-girlfriends back, are excited to go to Iraq. Sure, we hadn’t found any WMDs yet, and we had Hussein in custody, but they were still somehow a threat and had to be dragged kicking and screaming into Jeffersonian democracy. Inside every dirka is a good American, yearning to be free.

    So you fight. You kill. Watch friends die. Its usually quick, almost never quiet, but for the rest of your life, when you remember sitting at the bar with them, they’re blown open. You picture the nights you spent downtown at Scruffy Murphy’s, but instead of the stupid hookah shell necklace, your boy’s jaw is blown off, and his left eye is ruined, and he’s screaming.

    You fight, you kill, you watch friends die, and you notice a distinct lack of change. You kick in doors and tell terrified women to sit on the floor while you and your friends ransack their home, tearing the place apart, because they might be hiding weapons. There is no reason to believe this house in particular is enemy, same for the next one, and the one after that, or the seven before; they just happened to be there, and maybe they had weapons. Probably not, they almost never did. There were a few times when we had deliberate raids based on solid intel and we’d turn up some stuff, but generally we were just tossing houses because we could.

    Then maybe your FISTer forgets to carry the remainder, and drops a mess of mortars on the village your supposed to protect. Maybe the big Iraqi running at you screaming was just mentally ill. Of course, you won’t know this until after you’ve but seven rounds through his ribcage, and his wailing, ancient mother is cradling his body, spitting at you.

    Maybe when you get back to the FOB, the Platoon Sergeant tells you you did the right thing; next time, it might be a suicide bomber. They tell you it was an honest mistake, it wasn’t your fault. They tell you to go get some chow, take a shower if the water works, and sleep it off. You did good work that day, apparently.

    During chow, the TV is on AFN, and they are rebroadcasting some Fox News show, and you’re hearing about drone strikes, and all the great things we’re doing, and you can’t help but see that poor dumb assholes face, looking past his mother as he bleeds to death. He’s in pain, obviously, but he has the most perfectly confused look on his face. He doesn’t comprehend what’s happening. Little more hot sauce on your eggs doesn’t really help.

    Then you realize you haven’t seen anything to support the idea that these poor fuckers are a threat to your home. You look around and you see all he contractors making six figure salaries to fix your shit, train Iraqis, maintain the ridiculous SUVs the KBR dicks ride around in. You consider the fact that every 25mm shell costs about forty bucks, and your company has been handing those fuckers out like shrapnel flavored parade candies. You think about all the fuel you’re going through, all the ammo and missiles and grenades. You think about every time you lose a vehicle, the Army buys a new one. Maybe you start to see a lot of people making a lot of money on huge amounts of human suffering.

    Then you go on leave, and realize that Ayn Rand has no idea what the fuck she’s talking about. You realize that Fox News and Limbaugh and John McCain don’t respect you or your buddies. They don’t give a fuck if you get a parade or a box when you get home, you’re nothing to them but a prop.

    Then you get out, and you hate the news. You hate the apathy, and you hate the murder being carried out in your name. You grew up wanting so bad to be Luke Skywalker, but you realize that you were basically a Stormtrooper, a faceless, nameless rifleman, carrying a spear for empire, and you start to accept the startlingly obvious truth that these are people like you.

    Maybe your heart breaks a little every time some asshole brags about a “successful” drone strike.

    Your statement is correct enough; if all of America was one dude, that dude would not give a shit about the little brown people we’re burning and crushing and choking to death. We aren’t all like that, but it makes me incredibly, profoundly sad to see what my country actually is.

    Some of us care, and I think there are more every day.”

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    NETUREI KARTA of THE ORTHODOX JEWRY
    JERUSALEM, PALESTINE
    Jan 31.08

    URGENT PRESS RELEASE
    In the past week the so-called Chief Rabbi of the so-called State of “Israel”, Yona Metzger, has made vicious and provocative statements asserting that the Palestinians living in Gaza should be moved from their homes into the Sinai desert.

    Yona Metzger is not an authentic Torah authority, despite the fact that he carries the so-called title of “Chief Rabbi”. Chief rabbis of the Zionist State only carry legitimacy in the eyes of Zionist Jews. His status as a chief rabbi is not unlike the leadership of Theodor Herzl, who also wore a beard!

    The State of “Israel” is illegitimate according to the Torah teachings. The founding of the State of “Israel” is in direct contradiction to the teachings of the Torah which forbids the establishment of a Jewish state and commands Jews to remain in exile until released from that exile by G-d Himself, without any human intervention, at which time all nations of the world will live together in peace.

    We are likewise forbidden to rebel against any nation. We are to remain peaceful and loyal citizens, in every country in which we reside. Therefore to oppress the Palestinian people, harm them, steal their land, expel them, etc. is totally forbidden according to our Holy Torah.

    The Rabbinical authorities universally have stood in vehement opposition to the ideology of Zionism and have opposed the state of “Israel” from its creation until the present day.

    Palestinians have an inherent right to return to their land in historic Palestine and to establish their independent state in the entire Holy Land, which was forcefully taken from them by the Zionists. Indeed, many Gazans are refugees who were expelled from other areas of Palestine by the Zionists ever since 1948.

    Chief Rabbis of the Zionist state, whether Metzger or anyone else, are merely very well-paid stooges of the Zionists and serve their Zionist masters without regard for the welfare of the Jewish People, the Palestinians, or any other nation in the world.

    The Chief Rabbinate of the Zionist State, just as all Zionist institutions, has importance only because of its coercive power over the religious, economic and everyday life of the Jewish residents of Zionist occupied Palestine. Whoever recognizes and supports the Zionist State, even innocently, has been taken over by the heretical Zionist movement, no matter how large the halo that it is granted by supposed Jewish authorities.

    Chief Rabbis, and other rabbis who support the existence of the Zionist state, are wicked emissaries of evil. Such “rabbis” promote hatred and war, and use their coercive powers to demand subservience of Jews to the Zionist enterprise. This description that we posit of such people has been the long-standing position of authentic rabbis for the last century.

    Yona Metzger expresses feelings of inhumanity which originates in his loyalty to the cult of Zionism and is perfectly prepared to sacrifice Jewish lives on the altar of his idolatry, the State of “Israel.” Any moral person would much prefer to see the Zionist warmongers, including Metzger, removed from the Holy Land. METZGER AND ALL ZIONIST RABBIS DO NOT REPRESENT THE JEWISH RELIGION.

    We urgently appeal to the leaders of the world nations, especially the great powers, to stop supporting the Zionist regime. Many nations believe that supporting Zionism shows friendship to the Jewish People. This is incorrect! True friendship to the Jewish People can be demonstrated by saving all the peoples of the Middle East, including Jews, from the bloodthirsty machinations of the dangerous State of “Israel” and by dismantling the Zionist regime entirely, peacefully and speedily in our day.

    May Almighty G-d protect us from the influence of Zionism in general, their evil warmongering bloodthirsty leaders, and from their wicked servants who call themselves “rabbis.”
