I don’t usually jump to conclusions when it comes to the current events of today and those items presented to me for consideration of the content within. When I first heard anything of interest to my palate on these fires, I was presented with a video showing drone footage of the burned down houses in Santa Rosa, CA.
At first I just took a glance at the video because I was busy writing a piece on something totally unrelated to these fires, so when I got a free moment I came back to the drone footage only to realize I had almost dismissed something phenomenal going on in California with these so called “Wild Fires”.
When I examined the footage in more detail I could see that there was something very wrong with the fire scene. I have had extended training in fighting forest fires from my time up in Yosemite National Park where I took a couple courses with the Rangers / Hot Shots.
We learned the basic 8 Survival course for surviving a forest / wild fire. Then I took the extended Fire 32 course.
In the extended course they taught us the techniques used to create something called “Fire Breaks”. This is a staple of fire fighting in the forest because what it does is it creates a gap in the fuels needed by the fire to spread. Your most basic Fire Break is approximately 5 meters (about 16 1/2 Ft.) in width and this provides a zone to slow down the spread of radiant heat to other fuel sources such as downed trees and shrubs or twigs on the ground that would act as perfect kindling to help the fire spread to new areas of the forest.
When you examine the footage of these fires you see just that and even other more strange anomalies that just don’t add up. While there are a great deal of “Fire Breaks”, it would seem that they did not stop the fire from radiating its heat outward toward cars on the street next to the burned out houses while at the very same time you can see that there are trees and shrubs right up against the very edges of these burned down houses that are still green and quite lush. It was as if the fire was “Dished out” to only certain areas and other fuels just seemed off limits. It was like the fire ate its meal like a fussy child. Some things it would consume and others it just “Skipped”, right over that fuel source, to a car or a mailbox.
This was when I started digging further and I came across more videos, one from aplaintruth.info and another before that from TruthByGrace. Both YouTubers were noting how odd the burn patterns were and how eerily familiar the burned out cars looked. TruthByGrace was comparing the damaged cars to those that were found on the site of the WTC Attack of 9/11 and in China after the explosion at one of their sites that was cause by a mysterious source.
Have a look at this video and we will study this strangeness together and I openly welcome your thoughts, theories, and collaboration. I will share this video, as I do all my videos, as creative commons and I openly invite you to use it in whole or in part for your own research videos for your channel. If it is not marked creative commons then it is because ScrewTube or some other ScrewTube source has filed a copyright claim to some tiny, minuscule portion of the footage or audio so they can greedily claim monetization. So don’t be fearful of using the content if it is up, it is not a stricken video. Use it at your leisure…
By now you have most likely heard about the Las Vegas “Active Shooter” event (FEMA Drill). Yes, we are finding out that our initial suspicion that this was yet another active shooter drill being carried out by FEMA was correct. Does that mean that there were no injuries or fatalities? No, not at all and that is the despicable aspect of this from a humanitarian perspective.
This means that FEMA/FBI/CIA has carried out yet another Hegelian Dialectic psyop/drill which has cost innocent people dearly and all for what? Well, that is what I intend to inform you about in this report. First off, we have many people coming forward as witnesses both on the ground in Vegas and also those who can attest that the MSM Presstitutes were initially reporting correctly that multiple shooters were involved in the Las Vegas, NV massacre on Sunday, October 1, 2017.
According to multiple people who were in the middle of the chaos, the media reports began to quickly morph into accounts of a “Lone Wolf” scenario even though multiple eye witnesses were reporting multiple shooters on the ground, both civilians and police officers alike.
The media was obviously sent orders to quickly turn on damage control and re-craft the the story into one of just one 64 year old millionaire who blew a circuit just out of the blue and decided to setup a meticulously planned “military-styled” ambush with the intent to kill as many innocent people as he could before killing himself so the police could not arrest him.
So what if I could show you proof that this was not only NOT a classic “lone wolf” scenario, but a military style coordinated assault on the American people in Vegas as well as show you the REAL MOTIVE for the attack? Would that interest you?
Scope and Scale of the Attack:
OK then, here it goes. First off we should ask if there were any other witnesses who can give us a first hand account of what happened from their perspective that night. As it turns out I have a report of just such a witness and I have video as well. In the following video you will hear the first hand account of one Rene Downs who was staying in the Belagio Hotel and Casino resort which is approximately 1.5 miles North of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on the same roadway.
One report lists the following hotels as active shooter venues in addition to the Mandalay Bay – ARIA, BELAGIO, NEW YORK NEW YORK, CEASAR’S PALACE, MGM, PLANET HOLLYWOOD, TROPICANA
In this report Tracy Beanz interviews Rene Downs on what went down at the Belagio Hotel on October 1, 2017 30 to 45 minutes after the shooting began at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Plus I have added extra information in the video to help you understand the Vegas Psyop.
The Motive: Cui Bono
Now on top of that report above, you may or may not have seen this report from Truth Stream Media by Melissa and Aaron Dykes titled “Eerie Predictions in Vegas… Cui Bono”.
In this video report, Melissa has done an outstanding job hashing up the major players like “Michael Chertoff” & “Sheldon Adelson” in this psyop who stand to benefit financially on a massive scale through the sale of new metal detection equipment and some “oh so familiar” tech from OSI which we all hate and hoped to never see again, Rapiscan “Backscatter X-Ray Scanners“.
Yes those very same, very obnoxious, very invasive microwaves better known as “Airport Security Scanners” we all tried so hard to have removed from the airports after they were installed in the airports after 9/11. You might remember also how extremely fast they were installed, as if it was all part of the plan from the inception of the nefarious planned attack on the World Trade Center Complex that took the lives of some 2000 plus innocent souls that day.
If that doesn’t sound familiar to you yet, just wait until you have finished watching the following video report from Truth Stream Media. BTW I personally believe that Melissa and Aaron should receive an award for this report, that is how great a job they did IMHO.
While it is most obvious that this attack will be used to bolster new legislation for more gun control measures to be passed in Congress, the less obvious use for this attack is to now have a credible threat, in the eyes of the Sheople, to point at for justification of more security at the cost of even more of our liberty and freedom. Also this can and probably will lead to a larger TSA presence in hotels, stadiums, malls, etc. not to mention cancer causing deadly Rapiscan backscatter scanners everywhere you go in the very near future…
The security grid, control grid, Internet of Things (IoT), and the deadly 5G WiFi grid are all being successfully built out right in front of us and it seems that no one is the wiser save for the few of us who are awake and screaming from the rooftops to the sleeping populace who just does not even seem to notice or care that we are here. They just wander and stumble through their days now constantly and permanently affixed to their cell phone screens, too engrossed to even watch out for their own safety.
OK so that is almost all that I have for this report. The last few nuggets of prime information for your own personal extended research project(s) and hopefully even more detailed reports follow below: Disclaimer – I cannot account for the accuracy of some information listed in the block quote below as it is simply a raw dump from a FaceBook User’s post.

Concerned New York City residents have recently noticed mysterious metal towers popping up at local tunnels. Now information has come out revealing that soon they will begin to be built around bridges as well. Those in charge of the MTA – those in charge of the towers – will not say why they are being used, or what exactly they even are. Jose Lugo, a resident, said the tall metal towers appeared shortly after the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel toll booths were demolished.
Government surveillance centers being built in New York?
“We don’t really know what’s the purpose of this, ” he said. What is known is that it is a $100 million MTA project shrouded in secrecy and that 18 of them will be built around tunnels and bridges in the city. But what ARE they? MTA’s man in charge of the bridges and tunnels, Cedrick Fulton, has dodged the issue when asked about it.
“I said no comment, ” he repeated several times when asked.
Some of the MTA board members, including New York City Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg, claim that they are also in the dark – even though half the money has already been spent and some of the towers are already up. “A lot of the board members felt they didn’t have all the details they would have wanted, myself included, ” she said. Residents are generally confident that there is a lot more going on than meets the eye, and many of them are uncertain if the populace at large will ever be allowed to find out what is going on inside of the pillars. “I’m going to guess that it’s not just a decoration, ” Alyssa Renkas, of the Upper West Side, said. “It’s a bit mind-boggling that the MTA is approving $100 million for what appears to us to be big, decorative pylons, ” says John Kaehny, the leader of a local watchdog group named Reinvent Albany. “What we’re asking for is transparency from the MTA.” Locals soon began to demand answers and started asking their representatives questions. One man pointed out, “Some of your own board members say they don’t know the specifics.” Lhota responded, “The base of these new pieces that are going up include whatever fiber optics are necessary for those Homeland Security items.” From that comment, it seems that what New Yorkers may be dealing with is anti-terror technology. Some are concerned that this technology could that one day include facial recognition software. At this time, the public does not know, and Lhota won’t say. “I’m not at liberty to discuss that, ” he told Carlin. So as more of these expensive towers are constructed, with whatever surveillance technology they may have, their mysteries remain tucked inside. What Lhota was willing to say is that all necessary Homeland Security technology remains in place at all crossings, including the ones that do not have the new towers.
The question now is what these new surveillance devices will be used for, and why does the government want to keep people in the dark? Even though many Americans are not aware of the degree to which the government is watching them and infringing on their rights, such a public display of surveillance technology is certain to interest many locals. As these people begin to ask questions and to realize that a system is literally being set up to watch them all the time, and potentially identify them based on facial recognition technology, hopefully, they will begin to realize how serious this situation has become. Unless that happens, it appears that the government has taken another step to consolidate its power and prevent anybody from escaping its grasp.
According to an anonymous corespondent, it may be possible these towers are part of a new automatic tolling system, among other things I am sure.
Automatic Tolls to Replace Gates at 9 NYC Spans: Cuomo
Getting around in New York City isn’t getting any cheaper, but it could be getting faster.
That’s because toll gates will be replaced by automatic toll plazas at seven bridges and two tunnels throughout the city, under a plan announced by Gov. Cuomo on Wednesday.
The spans included in the project include the Verrazano-Narrows, Robert F. Kennedy, Bronx-Whitestone, Throgs Neck, Henry Hudson , Marine Parkway and Cross Bay bridges; and the Queens-Midtown and Brooklyn-Battery tunnels.
Under the project, the old toll gates will be replaced by suspended by sensors and cameras hanging above the highway. Drivers with E-ZPass will be automatically charged as they pass under the arrays, and those without them will have bill sent to the address corresponding with the license plate on their car.
As for non-New York drivers, the MTA says it has agreements with out-of-state DMVs to obtain information so that it can send toll bills in the mail to the registered owners.
With all the apparent confusion and infighting I am seeing take place right now, I felt the need to try to clarify for people just what it is they are fighting about because it seems that most Americans just do not have a clue what the American flag really stands for or why we even salute it or have it as our national icon.
We salute it, we honor it like some great idol, we cherish it as if it represents who we really are and yet if you ask the common man on the street why we do all this, they cannot give a correct or truthfully historic answer… Because, they really just don’t know.
We were taught in kindergarten on day one that we must daily stand and place our right hand over our hearts and pledge allegiance to this piece of cloth that is fashioned into a flag with the colors of Red, White, and Blue. Eventually we are taught that the Blue field of stars is a representation of the colonies or states of America and that the Red and White stripes represent the original thirteen colonies that founded America. Is that really what this piece of cloth stands for?
Timeline of the history of the American Flag:
Originally, as far as I can tell, America was founded with Christian principles and ideals in mind by the founding fathers and our fellow countrymen and ladies. For the longest time America was a country full of those who chose to be Christians in faith and follow after the teachings of Jesus Christ. Also true enough, many of the founding fathers were masons upon their arrival in this new free land and were still masons well into and even after the founding of America as a nation.
If you will just do some digging, you will find that back in Great Britain, where they all came from, it was a “necessary evil”, if you will, to be a member of the masons if you were to be able to make any kind of a living as this was just the way of things back in Great Britain in those days; probably still is to this day.
Since humans are really “creatures of habit” the mason membership did not die off until much later on. Those masons, or as they are known today as the “Free Masons”, who were die-hards sought to revive the brotherhood after it began to die off in attendance and membership with the advent of television and other modern technologies sometime around the fifties. Of the exact facts I am not sure as I am typing this out from memory.
If you want the whole story and the exact facts, it is easy enough to research for yourselves, a simple google search on the topic will reveal a plethora of historical information.
That said, people need to understand that the idea behind the American Flag (Union Jack) was and is today still one of innocence as far as the citizens are concerned. It is the eager beaver criminals in charge who have destroyed the worth and credibility of what America used to stand for and the same goes for her union jack.
Thus we come to the issue of someone in this free country, at least it is still somewhat free today anyway, choosing not to honor the union jack or American Flag AKA Old Glory. This is the very reason we have the bill of rights in the US Constitution. The very first and most important right in that bill of rights, which come from God and cannot be taken by anyone not even by your government because they come from God, is the right to freedom of speech and expression. Of course without the 2nd Amendment we would have no rights at all so there is some debate as to which of the first two Amendments are more important, but that is for another discussion.
As citizens of America we all possess the most unique right in the world over all other countries and that right is the right to speak our minds and express ourselves without fear of reprisal from the government or some tyrannical king. Yes and even today those rights are under siege which is why it is SO VERY IMPORTANT that we NOT fight amongst ourselves.
Now you might not like what someone else has to say, but as long as they are not inciting a riot nor advocating for murder of another, then they have the right to say whatever they want and to express themselves however they feel.
Regardless of weather there are consequences for their actions, it is not our right to remove their right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression without falling prey to tyranny ourselves. So please just keep that in mind when you find yourself in disagreement with your fellow American citizen.
Are we under siege by the powers that should not be? You bet your ass we are and that is all the more reason to NOT argue and bicker amongst ourselves and instead try to remain united so that we are not divided before we realize we have been attacked by an enemy within our ranks who has sneaked in while we were not paying attention.
They want us fighting with each other. They want us at each other’s throats. STOP GIVING THEM WHAT THEY WANT!
For me personally I have decided that the flag is just not that important as I have seen it raised in importance well above God in this country. It is acceptable today to praise Old Glory and honor Old Glory but give praise and honor to God and Jesus Christ and you are suddenly public enemy number one and a privileged white oppressive male or something worse.
For me, God and Jesus Christ are at the top of my list of priorities and if someone wants to “dis” the American flag then so what, I could care less. This country is going down fast and it is happening because so many Americans have become dumbed down and self serving. This is not what Jesus taught and so I will not participate in such idolatry myself.
I get that the American flag and what it is supposed to stand for has been permanently burned into the minds of most Americans.
However, when the Media Whores and the Establishment Powers that should not be are able to weaponize it to the point of causing us to want to hurt, maim, or kill each other? Uh uh, no way, sorry jack. I am out of that discussion because humanity is better than that and we are not a nation of petty brutes, at least I would like to hope that we are still above such petty skirmishes.
It is my hope that when you read this, you will understand how extremely important it is for all of us to stand united against the global power elites and recognize when we are being gamed so they CANNOT take control of our Minds, Will, and Emotions.
What say you? Are you stronger than the criminals in charge or are you weak minded numbskulls? Let’s pull it together America because if we don’t we will fall divided.
United We Stand, Divided We Fall!

Adoption of State Flag Desecration Statutes — By the late 1800’s an organized flag protection movement was born in reaction to perceived commercial and political misuse of the flag. After supporters failed to obtain federal legislation, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota became the first States to adopt flag desecration statutes. By 1932, all of the States had adopted flag desecration laws.
In general, these State laws outlawed: (i) placing any kind of marking on the flag, whether for commercial, political, or other purposes; (ii) using the flag in any form of advertising; and (iii) publicly mutilating, trampling, defacing, defiling, defying or casting contempt, either by words or by act, upon the flag. Under the model flag desecration law, the term “flag” was defined to include any flag, standard, ensign, or color, or any representation of such made of any substance whatsoever and of any size that evidently purported to be said flag or a picture or representation thereof, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and stripes in any number, or by which the person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag of the U.S.
Halter v. Nebraska (205 U.S. 34) — The Supreme Court holds that although the flag was a federal creation, the States’ had the authority to promulgate flag desecration laws under their general police power to safeguard public safety and welfare.
Halter involved a conviction of two businessmen selling “Stars and Stripes” brand beer with representations of the U.S. flag affixed to the labels. The defendants did not raise any First Amendment claim.

June 24, President Taft signs Executive Order which establishes proportions of the flag and specifies arrangement and orientation of the stars.
Flag with 48 stars New Mexico (January 6, 1912), Arizona (February 14, 1912)
Stromberg v. California (283 U.S. 359) — The Supreme Court finds that a State statute prohibiting the display of a “red flag” as a sign of opposition to organized government unconstitutionally infringed on the defendant’s First Amendment rights. Stromberg represents the Court’s first declaration that “symbolic speech” is protected by the First Amendment.
Federal Flag Code (36 U.S.C. 171 et seq.) — On June 22, 1942, President Roosevelt approves the Federal Flag Code, providing for uniform guidelines for the display and respect shown to the flag. The Flag Code does not prescribe any penalties for non-compliance nor does it include any enforcement provisions, rather it functions simply as a guide for voluntary civilian compliance.
West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette (319 U.S. 624) — The Supreme Court holds that public school children could not be compelled to salute the U.S. flag. In a now famous passage, Justice Jackson highlighted the importance of freedom of expression under the First Amendment:
Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order. If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion or other matters of opinion.
The flag that flew over Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, is flown over the White House on August 14, when the Japanese accepted surrender terms.
August 3 — Truman signs bill requesting the President call for Flag Day (June 14) observance each year by proclamation.
In the case Engel v. Vitale, the court decides that government-directed prayer in public schools is unconstitutional, a violation of the Establishment Clause. This case is relevant to the flag in that it set a precedent for debate over use of the phrase “under God” which was added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954.
Flag placed on top of Mount Everest by Barry Bishop.
Adoption of Federal Flag Desecration Law (18 U.S.C. 700 et seq.) — Congress approves the first federal flag desecration law in the wake of a highly publicized Central Park flag burning incident in protest of the Vietnam War. The federal law made it illegal to “knowingly” cast “contempt” upon “any flag of the United States by publicly mutilating, defacing, defiling, burning or trampling upon it.” The law defined flag in an expansive manner similar to most States.
July 20 — The American flag is placed on the moon by Neil Armstrong.
Street v. New York (394 U.S. 576) — The Supreme Court holds that New York could not convict a person based on his verbal remarks disparaging the flag. Street was arrested after he learned of the shooting of civil rights leader James Meredith and reacted by burning his own flag and exclaiming to a small crowd that if the government could allow Meredith to be killed, “we don’t need no damn flag.” The Court avoided deciding whether flag burning was protected by the First Amendment, and instead overturned the conviction based on Street’s oral remarks. In Street, the Court found there was not a sufficient governmental interest to warrant regulating verbal criticism of the flag.
Smith v. Goguen (415 U.S. 94) — The Supreme Court holds that Massachusetts could not prosecute a person for wearing a small cloth replica of the flag on the seat of his pants based on a State law making it a crime to publicly treat the flag of the United States with “contempt.” The Massachusetts statute was held to be unconstitutionally “void for vagueness.”
Spence v. Washington (418 U.S. 405) — The Supreme Court holds that the State of Washington could not convict a person for attaching removable tape in the form of a peace sign to a flag. The defendant had attached the tape to his flag and draped it outside of his window in protest of the U.S. invasion of Cambodia and the Kent State killings. The Court again found under the First Amendment there was not a sufficient governmental interest to justify regulating this form of symbolic speech. Although not a flag burning case, this represented the first time the Court had clearly stated that protest involving the physical use of the flag should be seen as a form of protected expression under the First Amendment.
Revision of State Flag Desecration Statutes — During this period legislatures in some 20 States narrow the scope of their flag desecration laws in an effort to conform to perceived Constitutional restrictions under the Street, Smith, and Spence cases and to more generally parallel the federal law (i.e., focusing more specifically on mutilation and other forms of physical desecration, rather than verbal abuse or commercial or political misuse).
Texas v. Johnson (491 U.S. 397) — The Supreme Court upholds the Texas Court of Criminal appeals finding that Texas law — making it a crime to “desecrate” or otherwise “mistreat” the flag in a way the “actor knows will seriously offend one or more persons” — was unconstitutional as applied. This was the first time the Supreme Court had directly considered the applicability of the First Amendment to flag burning.
Gregory Johnson, a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party, was arrested during a demonstration outside of the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas after he set fire to a flag while protestors chanted “America, the red, white, and blue, we spit on you.” In a 5-4 decision authored by Justice Brennan, the Court first found that burning the flag was a form of symbolic speech subject to protection under the First Amendment. The Court also determined that under United States v. O’Brien, 391 U.S. 367 (1968), since the State law was related to the suppression of freedom of expression, the conviction could only be upheld if Texas could demonstrate a “compelling” interest in its law. The Court next found that Texas’ asserted interest in “protecting the peace” was not implicated under the facts of the case. Finally, while the Court acknowledged that Texas had a legitimate interest in preserving the flag as a “symbol of national unity,” this interest was not sufficiently compelling to justify a “content based” legal restriction (i.e., the law was not based on protecting the physical integrity of the flag in all circumstances, but was designed to protect it from symbolic protest likely to cause offense to others).
Revision of Federal Flag Desecration Statute — Pursuant to the Flag Protection Act of 1989, Congress amends the 1968 federal flag desecration statute in an effort to make it “content neutral” and conform to the Constitutional requirements of Johnson. As a result, the 1989 Act sought to prohibit flag desecration under all circumstances by deleting the statutory requirement that the conduct cast contempt upon the flag and narrowing the definition of the term “flag” so that its meaning was not based on the observation of third parties.
United States v. Eichman (496 U.S. 310) — Passage of the Flag Protection Act results in a number of flag burning incidents protesting the new law. The Supreme Court overturned several flag burning convictions brought under the Flag Protection Act of 1989. The Court holds that notwithstanding Congress’ effort to adopt a more content neutral law, the federal law continued to be principally aimed at limiting symbolic speech.
Rejection of Constitutional Amendment — Following the Eichman decision, Congress considers and rejects a Constitutional Amendment specifying that “the Congress and the States have the power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States.” The amendment failed to muster the necessary two-thirds Congressional majorities, as it was supported by only a 254 — 177 margin in the House (290 votes were necessary) and a 58 — 42 margin in the Senate (67 votes were necessary).
December 12 — The Flag Desecration Constitutional Amendment is narrowly defeated in the Senate. The Amendment to the Constitution would make burning the flag a punishable crime.
September 11 — The Flag from the World Trade towers survives and becomes a symbol of sacrifice in service, loss, and determination.
June 26 — The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California declares that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools is unconstitutional because “under God” (inserted into the Pledge in 1954) was a violation of the Establishment Clause, that expression not create the reasonable impression that the government is sponsoring, endorsing, or inhibiting religion generally, or favoring or disfavoring a particular religion. This ruling was reconfirmed in February 2003, and applies only to the 9th Circuit (the following districts: Alaska, Arizona, Central, Eastern, Northern, and Southern California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Eastern and Western Washington, Guam, and Northern Mariana Islands). (See 2010)
June 14 — The Supreme Court declines to hear a case challenging “One nation under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. “While the court did not address the merits of the case, it is clear that the Pledge of Allegiance and the words ‘under God’ can continue to be recited by students across America,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice.
January 25 — Constitutional amendment, sponsored by Rep. Duke Cunningham, introduced. It reads simply, “The Congress shall have power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States.”
June 22 — The Constitutional amendment (see above) is approved by the House (vote of 286-130). It requires Senate approval. Then it must receive approval from 38 states within seven years.
June 28 — The Senate is one vote short of passing the Constitutional amendment (see above).
July 19 — H.R.42 is passed, preventing condominiums or residential real estate management associations from forbidding the flying of the US flag. Read full law
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California declares that the phrase “under God” in the Pledge is constitutional. The majority decision states, “The Pledge of Allegiance serves to unite our vast nation through the proud recitation of some of the ideals upon which our Republic was founded.” It states later, “Coercion to engage in a patriotic activity, like the Pledge of Allegiance, does not run afoul of the Establishment Clause.” (See 2002) Read decision [pdf]
Proposed flag with 51 stars, to be used if a 51st state is added.
I did not know that, and it makes NOAA an EVEN BIGGER LIAR! The scale used to measure hurricane intensity does not take into account how high the winds are up inside the hurricane. I thought it did, because only that could explain how NOAA was rating the hurricanes, but it does not. That means even now, after strengthening, Maria only has 90 mph winds and NOAA is lying.
For real time updates on how huge NOAA is lying, CHECK THIS WIND MAP (it is the same one I have always linked) and watch NOAA spew falsehood after falsehood. The wind map will only be off by a few percent MAX. Click around on the hurricane and see what is really going on.
Here is the definition of a category 1 hurricane (and this is exactly what happened in Puerto Rico:
Category 1 74–95 mph
Very dangerous winds will produce some damage
Category 1 storms usually cause no significant structural damage to most well-constructed permanent structures; however, they can topple unanchored mobile homes, as well as uproot or snap weak trees. Poorly attached roof shingles or tiles can blow off. Coastal flooding and pier damage are often associated with Category 1 storms. Power outages are typically widespread to extensive, sometimes lasting several days. Even though it is the least intense type of hurricane, the storm can still produce widespread damage and can be a life-threatening storm
CHECK THE WIND SPEED MAP I LINKED. AT THE TIME OF THIS POSTING (1:45 PM CST) Maria is a category 1 storm regardless of what is on Drudge. The wind speed map is right, and that is all there is to it!
OK, NOW LOOK AT THE BEUFORT SCALE. WHAT WIND MAKES 25 FOOT WAVES? ANSWER: Winds between 47 and 54 MPH. OK; SO NOW, LOOK AT MY HURRICANE WIND MEASUREMENTS AGAIN, WHAT ARE THE WIND SPEEDS??!!?? HA HA HA, NAILED IT!!!!
Yeah, but 54 mph winds would never peel a roof back, like what is in that photo, RIGHT? Guess again, here is a close up of how poorly constructed the homes are in Puerto Rico! This lived, and it was right on the beach getting the full blast!
I was wrong about one thing though: There are a few destroyed homes and flipped cars in Puerto Rico, because “25 foot waves” were able to reach them. That’s not the same as having the wind do it, but I said nothing would be destroyed so I have to correct that because I did not think about wave damage.
The construction in Puerto Rico is so poor it would never be allowed in mainland America, and the photo above proves it. 155 mph winds? MY ***, please subtract 100 from that, and we will have a match both for what happened to such poor construction on the ground, and the Beufort scale.
The wave heights, when contrasted with the Beufort scale, prove what the winds were with a totally objective reference. There is no way NOAA or the scamming MSM will ever overcome what they have reported about wave heights. Once they said that, they provided a reference that cannot be refuted. They are irrevocably busted by the Beufort scale, category 1/tropical storm CONFIRMED. Keep in mind that no admissions will be made, because there is a phoney global warming agenda to uphold, and for that agenda to succeed they need their “super storms”. Also keep in mind that Drudge is nothing but a headline parrot who posts bullshit frequently because of that so his sensational headlines are meaningless.
As a rebuttal, before it is needed
It will obviously be argued that my wind samples of Maria on Puerto Rico are irrelevant, because at the time they were taken, Maria was weakened by the mountains. But that won’t work because:
During the weather mod portion of the report, where I reported clear evidence of weather mod pumping up Maria, I posted a capture of Maria just as it was making landfall. That capture proves the winds were not over 85 mph (as I stated) because the wind map starts to turn purple after that. Since the capture has only wind speeds up to whatever red will cover, it means these winds were between 59 and 85 mph but there is no way to know exactly what they were because I was only interested in showing the weather mod in progress and not the actual wind speed so I did not sample the wind. Here is that capture that proves beyond a doubt the 155 mph winds were B.S. because the map progresses all the way through purple to white before 155 mph is reached. If it is all red, it is category 1 or less.
Also to repeat yesterday, Magic Box wrote and said the square artifacts were due to the sampling. However, with the exact same sampling, Jose to the North had no artifacts (this is all posted below)
BUSTED: HURRICANE MARIA IS OBVIOUSLY SYNTHETIC, AND THEY ARE PUSHING THE SYSTEM SO HARD THAT MARIA HAS A SQUARE WIND PATTERN
THIS PATTERN HAS BEEN PERSISTENT FOR HOURS AND IS NOT A RADAR ANOMALY. YOU CAN’T GET SQUARE WIND PATTERNS IN A NATURAL HURRICANE, BUSTED!!!!!
Maria making landfall in Puerto Rico with 85 mph or less surface winds:
I posted the following to a popular forum
It is good enough to post here.
If the power is out in Puerto rico for any more than a week or two it will be caused politically. Since nothing happened of substance, (it is well documented that NOAA lied, and that Puerto Rico had no winds anywhere over 85 mph,) they can at least keep the power cut to create the illusion of “devastation” for the masses outside of Puerto Rico.
The illusion might hold, I was 100 miles away from landfall for Patricia – the “category 6” mega cane that hit Mexico and did practically nothing, and you can go to Manzanilla and talk to people and they brag about their “category 6” that did not wipe out a single home, my god people are clueless and just parrot the authorities even when reality is obviously not as stated by them. Carbon tax Ahoy!
Most of the outages in Puerto rico were caused by poorly strung wires running through trees that were not properly cut away from the wires (like what gets done everywhere, even in Mexico,) because they were too lazy and short sighted to do proper maintenance. Even a brief perusal of Google images confirms this, and also confirms that there was no damage to anything that was not built like a shack.
The other problem is laziness, no one there is going to work hard to get the power back on. There were plenty of real outages simply because proper maintenance in the form of removing hazardous trees was never done. Hazardous trees go down in 60 mph winds. If these were not taken care of ahead of time, you can bet worker attitudes are going to keep the power out a lot longer than it has to be.
Look at how they strung their electrical in the aftermath pictures – a lot of the outages were caused by cheap tin roofs cutting extension cord quality wire while the houses the tin came from are perfectly intact sans tin roof, despite 2×3 construction. They did not even use 2×4’s on EXTERIOR walls, yet all the houses are still standing, sans the occasional roof. That would not be possible after a significant hurricane.
Many island states are built the same, perfectly acceptable construction in many is 2×2 walls that end up being three inches thick once the sheathing is applied. Many times island states shoot straight for the bottom because the climate is so favorable they don’t need protection from the elements . . . .until a hurricane arrives, which is like, “almost never.”
The trollage on the topic is astounding. Clearly someone does not want word of a borderline fake hurricane (that might have been only a tropical storm) getting out, because there is a global warming agenda to uphold.
Just surf Google images, plenty is getting out of puerto rico but the MSM does not want to publish it because what actually happened on the ground does not fit the carbon tax climate change story line of a mega hurricane.
Unfortunately we live in an era where NOAA and the USGS can’t be trusted, for example, the Mexico quake HAD TO have been more than a 7.1 but they are not publishing that. It seems that for whatever political agenda there is, we can’t get the truth anywhere anymore.
Just hours after hurricane IRMA ripped through the state of Florida while residents were tending to their battle scars and beginning the taxing chore of cleaning up the mess that IRMA left in her wake, One man who lives in Miami-Dade Florida received an unexpected visit from the county.
A county code enforcement agent came to issue Celso Perez a warning notice indicating that his downed fence was noted and that the code enforcement office was demanding he repair said fence in a certain amount of time or they would slap him with a fine.
At first Celso was surprised by this gesture and immediately asked the agent if he was joking. The agent said it was no joke and that he was going to write a report and then return to “check up” on him.
The agent slapped the warning citation sticker on the part of the fence that was still standing.
Celso is a very calm person. His reaction to this action?
Celso Perez stated: “I laughed. I thought he was kidding. ‘You’re kidding right? We just had a hurricane six hours ago.’
Code Enforcement Agent: “No I’m not kidding. I have to cite you for this.
Celso Perez: “I just laughed. OK, whatever; knock yourself out!”
Celso told News 7 Miami “At the time this officer was out here, we didn’t have power, we didn’t have food, we didn’t have ice. He is crazy, ridiculous. The mayor said that the county would help us recover from the storm and were there to help us. Before the county picks up the debris, the code enforcement guy will beat them to it and some for having my fence down, write me a ticket or something. I’m mad, very upset about this.”
The reason given for this citation? Celso was told he got the warning was because the fence IRMA knocked down made it easy to access his pool and he needed to fix that.
After Irma, the county handed out 680 pool barrier safety notices and 177 electrical hazard safety notices to homeowners suffering damage from Irma.
The county stood by their decision to hand out these notices right after Irma.
A building official wrote, “The safety notice is neither a notice of violation warning nor a citation. It is important that we reach residents in the immediate aftermath of the storm, because that is when conditions are most dangerous, and taking steps to protect life is a critical part of the recovery process.”
A notice alerts the owner that there is a potential hazard present that they may not be aware of.
Celso Perez: “I want the public to know what the county is doing out there.”
So recently I have been seeing videos and articles alike coming out and accusing the Red Cross of fraud and mismanagement. Not just with money but also with supplies donated by a great many well meaning Americans plus others from around the world. The latest snafu is out of Texas where, so far, I have seen two damning viral videos surface accusing the Red Cross of such acts as outright theft and also gross mismanagement of items donated for the relief effort in Houston, TX.
I decided to do my own digging and I put my findings into the following video:
If you are looking for advice, I would lean toward the advice given by those in the video above and many others who are also advising to stop giving your money blindly to the Red Crooks as they seem to just be in this game solely for the money money money…
Instead I would like to join the others in urging you to seek out local shelters, Churches, and smaller relief organizations in the immediate areas of these disasters as they will be more prudent and transparent with what they are doing with your donations for the relief efforts.
Why give your hard earned dough to an organization who promises to do good with it only to have them turn around and fly in the face of those in need by simply pocketing your well meaning donations.
