  Which state has very little if almost no illegals ?
Posted by: 727Sky - 01-17-2018, 10:27 AM - Forum: Daily Chit Chat - Replies (1)

Quote:[Image: Missouri.GIF]

Missouri has no illegals; go figure... shouldn't the other states do the same? Missouri's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona . Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegals in Missouri to demonstrate.  (And the Media doesn't want to publicize that fact!)

The "Show Me" state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. Please pass this around.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri . No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.

In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri 's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .

In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States .

It is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

GO TRUMP!!   minusculeknocks 

Quote:The very people that have been attacking Donald Trump are now feeling the Trump counter attack. Former top CIA officer Kevin Shipp says, “They are terrified, they are terrified right now. They did not expect Trump to do what he is doing now. The reason they tried to get him even before he was elected is they knew he was uncontrollable, and they knew if he got in there, they would not be able to manipulate him, and that is exactly what’s happening. There are some people, and there is no doubt about it, that are running scared right now. . . . Donald Trump is questioning the Deep State and the shadow government. He’s rocking that place left and right. The news media is terrified of that. Their editors are telling them to attack him just like they are attacking him from the inside. It’s just dirty pool because they want him taken out.”

In closing, Shipp says, “Trump is making tremendous progress despite tremendous resistance. They have already done a character assassination on him, and I think they could go further than that. . . . Trump is making progress, and he has them running scared.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Kevin Shipp, former CIA officer and author of the popular book “From the Company of Shadows.”

  US STILL Training Terrorists in Syria
Posted by: 727Sky - 01-16-2018, 11:49 AM - Forum: War, Peace and Inbetween - Replies (3)

Quote:US Training Terrorists in Syria

By Stephen Lendman


Russia and Iran, along with Syria and allied forces, are going all-out to defeat US-supported terrorists and end war in Syria.

They’re undermined by Washington wanting it continued, aiming for regime change and pro-Western puppet rule installed.

War was launched by Obama in March 2011, orchestrated by Hillary Clinton, continued by Trump, using ISIS and other terrorist foot soldiers, aided by US terror-bombing, massacring civilians, causing mass destruction.

US naked aggression has been ongoing for nearly seven years. Despite important gains on the ground by Syrian and allied forces, liberating thousands of kilometers of former terrorists-controlled areas, fighting continues - conflict resolution nowhere in sight.

Last month, Russia’s General Staff accused the Pentagon of training terrorists at its illegally established At Tanf area base in southern Syria - wanting endless war continued, its claims about combating ISIS a bald-faced lie.

Russian Federal News Agency journalists Igor Petrashevich and Roman Martynovich embedded themselves with Syrian reporters to learn firsthand what Washington wants kept secret.

US forces illegally occupy a 55 square km area in southeastern Syria near the Iraqi border.

Russia’s General Staff called the area a staging ground for US armed struggle against the Syrian government, using ISIS and other terrorists, Kurdish YPG fighters used for the same purpose in northern areas near Turkey’s border.

According to Russian General Staff chief General Valery Gerasimov, US special forces airlifted ISIS terrorists from Deir Ezzor to At Tanf.

Petrashevich and Martynovich said a local Syrian in the area warned them, saying threats to his life followed attempts he made to approach America’s heavily guarded exclusion zone.

They continued their investigative work anyway, meeting with area residents and members of Syria’s military.

They learned about hundreds of terrorists at At Tanf, trained and protected by US forces, taught use of heavy weapons, including tanks, large-caliber mortars, HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems, as well as anti-aircraft artillery and missiles - for use against government and allied troops.

Petrashevich and Martynovich learned about UK, French, and Jordanian forces operating with their US counterparts at At Tanf.

They were told about thousands of terrorists in the Rukban refugee camp, the area controlled by US forces, the additional terrorists used as a reserve army of cutthroat killers - to be deployed where the Pentagon and CIA want them sent.

Jihadists in cahoots with Washington gravely harm Syrian civilians in the area, they learned.

A previous article discussed dire conditions in the Rukban refugee camp, US forces preventing humanitarian aid from getting in, over 60,000 Syrians affected - facing starvation and lack of clean water, suffering from untreated illnesses.

Refugees are being recruited to combat their government. Western media ignore what’s going on.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry issued a scathing statement, saying “(a)ssurances by the United States that its military are allegedly staying on Syrian soil for the purpose of fighting terrorists are unconvincing and open to criticism.”

“We demand that all restrictions on access for convoys of food and medicines be lifted and that humanitarian operations in the area be more transparent.”

Washington ignores demands. The only language it understands is force. Attempts by Russian and Syrian humanitarian convoys to reach the camp were met by warning airstrikes to stay away.

Washington pursues its imperial agenda ruthlessly. As long as US forces remain in Syria, conflict resolution will remain unattainable.

  North Korean nuclear weapons base collapses and falls into the sea

Oh my.  Poor Lit'l Kim, just can't catch a break in his efforts to blow up the world.   tinylaughing 

Quote:SHOCKING pictures have emerged apparently showing a North Korean military base that has "collapsed and fallen into the sea".
The base is in the same region where 200 workers are rumoured to have died following an implosion at nuclear test site last year.

Satellite pictures seem to show that part of a military base has collapsed into the sea
Political activist Jacob Bogle, who has previously mapped the state, claims the photos show signs of a “large collapse and debris” at the coordinates 41.89599°, 129.94985°.

Mr Bogle tweeted: “There was a small collapse that happened around Jan/Feb 2015, and then the big one happened sometime after then but before Sept 2016.

“I surmise the large one happened as a result of trying to correct problems associated w/ the smaller one, but have no evidence for that.”

North Hamgyong Province is where the reclusive regime's nuclear testing facility is located.

Last October it was reported that 200 people had been killed in a collapse at the Punggye-ri test site shortly after the communist country executed their biggest ever nuclear test.

The news comes just days after satellite images showed increased tunnelling beneath the site.

The underground base, which is carved into a mountain in the north-east of the hermit kingdom, has been the site of North Korea's last five nuclear tests.

The images also show increased activity at the south of the site, which could also indicate that another nuke test is imminent.
Throughout December 2017, mining carts and personnel were consistently present around the West Portal and there was significant expansion of the spoil pile,” reports 38 North.

The report continues: “On December 28, there were also a large number of personnel (100 to 200) observed in seven different formations whose purpose is unknown in the Southern Support Area.

“These activities underscore North Korea’s continued efforts to maintain the Punggye-ri site’s potential for future nuclear testing.”

  Twitter Being Paid to Look at Your *Private Parts*

So, you thought all those photos you were sending to your lover were private?  Think again!  Twitter pays people to look at those, and not just one person, but many see them!
I saw where the CEO resigned yesterday. I'm sure it had something to do with this, whether it's mentioned or not.  The only articles I see regarding this come from a few years ago, but someone on Twitter was saying he has already stepped down. I think that was over the weekend. A current article should be available soon.

  10 People Who Married Inanimate Objects
Posted by: Wallfire - 01-15-2018, 11:39 AM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (2)

A friend of mine read this and with great sadness in his voice said " he too had married an inanimate object " Strange but his wife was English  tinybighuh

Marriage is a sacred vow of commitment. The union is intended to be permanent, an everlasting devotion to one another. It can be a daunting promise to make, unless you know you’ve found your soul mate. For many, the perfect spouse appears in the form of a fellow human being. But for some, their dream spouse is an object.

A few people who married non-human entities have already been covered on Listverse. Two women who became known for marrying famous monuments are Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer, who wed the Berlin Wall in 1979, and Erika Eiffel, who married the Eiffel tower in 2007. These women were well-known for their choices, but they weren’t the only people to wed lifeless spouses.
Below are ten people who married inanimate objects. None of the unions are officially recognized, of course, but many of the people on this list swear that their marriages are just as real as any union between two humans.

10Linda Ducharme

In 2015, Floridian Linda Ducharme appeared on TLC’s reality series My Strange Addiction. Despite the name of the show, Ducharme insists that she does not suffer from an addiction. She isn’t obsessed with carnival rides; she just happens to be in love with one. His name is Bruce, and he is a Ferris wheel.
Ducharme met her husband at a carnival in 1982. She dated Bruce for 30 years before promising to love, honor, and obey the 21-meter-tall (70 ft) contraption in 2012. Ducharme has certainly proven her devotion to Bruce, supporting him “in sickness and health.” Bruce sustained severe damage during a 1986 storm, which forced his retirement from the carnival circuit. Ducharme claimed Bruce’s remains and has spent almost $100,000 repairing the love of her life.
Ducharme says her relationship with the Ferris wheel is really no different than any other married couple. They spend time together and even share candlelit dinners.
Bruce is not Ducharme’s first nontraditional significant other. Before devoting herself to her current husband, Ducharme dated a plane and a train.[1]
9Zheng Jiajia

Zheng Jiajia, an artificial intelligence engineer, was under a lot of pressure from his family to find a wife and settle down. The 31-year-old felt ready to marry, but he couldn’t find a suitable bride. Finding a mate for life is tough enough, but in China, a man seeking a wife faces especially difficult odds. China’s family planning laws have recently relaxed, but sex-selective abortions that occurred during the one-child policy created a drastic gender gap. There just aren’t enough women for the male population. So in 2016, Zheng created a robot, named her Yingying, and married her.
Zheng dated his robot bride for two months before carrying her down the aisle. The ceremony was simple yet traditional, with Yingying wearing a red scarf over her head and family and friends bearing witness.
Yingying is not fully upgraded yet. Currently, she is capable of recognizing simple images and speaking a handful of words. Zheng has plans to program his wife to be able to walk on her own and perform household chores such as folding laundry and washing dishes.[2]

8Babylonia Aivaz

In January 2012, a Seattle woman wed her 107-year-old wife in a ceremony that took place shortly before the elderly bride’s scheduled demise. Babylonia Aivaz vowed to love and cherish a Seattle warehouse in front of a crowd of 50 onlookers.
Aivaz described the union as a gay marriage because apparently the warehouse was female. This drew criticism from people worried that Aivaz’s event would have a negative impact on the marriage equality movement. Some held a quiet protest, standing on the outskirts of the ceremony with signs that read, “This is not a gay marriage.” At the time of Aivaz’s wedding, the bill to legalize gay marriage had just been introduced to the state senate. The law legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington would not be approved and put into effect until the end of that year. There were concerns that Aivaz’s wedding would be used as ammunition to discredit the rights of same-sex couples, allowing the opposition to argue that legalizing marriage between two women (or men) would lead to legalizing marriage between a human and anything—such as a building.
Aivaz chose to ignore the issue of the warehouse’s gender and instead focused on what she called the “serious issue” of gentrification. The dilapidated warehouse was being torn down to make room for an apartment building, and though Aivaz could not stop the demolition, the ceremony was meant to bring awareness to the situation.
After the wedding, Aivaz moved on to other communities that faced gentrification, but the warehouse widow didn’t marry any other buildings during subsequent protests.[3]
7Chang His-Hsum

Chang His-hsum lost his first wife, Tsai, to suicide. His family opposed their marriage, and Tsai killed herself as a result. Chang eventually remarried, but the Taiwanese widower knew that his first wife was not at peace. In 1999, 20 years after Tsai’s death, Chang married a Barbie doll in order to put his first wife’s spirit to rest. Chang’s second wife approved of the ceremony.

The wedding took place at Chang’s local Buddhist temple. Barbie was dressed in a wedding gown and wore a gold necklace that had belonged to Tsai. Chang’s family gave the marriage their blessing this time, asking forgiveness for their initial disapproval.
Tsai’s dowry had included a red Mercedes. During the ceremony, a paper model of the flashy automobile was burned so that Tsai could use the car in the spirit world.
After the ceremony, Chang returned home with his human bride, his new Barbie bride, and an urn that contained Tsai’s ashes. Since Chang married Tsai’s spirit, she is considered a member of his family.
Spiritual marriages that use an object to represent the deceased are not uncommon in Chinese culture, but choosing a Barbie doll to represent the late wife is.[4]
6Tracey Emin
[Image: Tracey-Emin.jpg]
Tracey Emin is a London artist with a history of controversial pieces and public appearances. Emin is known for pushing the boundaries of what is expected, and her 2015 marriage was no different. Emin married a stone.
Emin’s spouse resides in the garden of her home in France. The ceremony was private, but Emin has spoken openly about what led her to make the commitment.
Emin was inspired by reading letters between Pope John Paul II and Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka. The pope and philosopher exchanged passionate, personal letters over a long period of time, but their correspondence never led to a physical relationship. It caused Emin to think about her own relationships in terms of spiritual versus physical connections. It is a spiritual connection that she shares with her beloved stone. She describes her spouse as a “beautiful ancient stone” that she identifies with. She also calls it her anchor, saying, “It’s not going anywhere.”[5]
Emin admits to thinking about her stone spouse when she is having a bad day, and it lifts her spirits. She asks that her husband be referred to as a stone, rather than a rock. Emin defines a rock as something cut by humans, while a stone is shaped by the Earth, and her spouse is the latter.

5Richard Torres

An environmentalist took his love of nature to the next level by marrying trees.
Richard Torres has been described as a “Jonny Depp doppelganger.” He is very fond of trees, but he isn’t actually in love with his leafy spouses. The Peruvian activist began marrying trees to bring awareness to environmental issues.
In 2013, Torres began his unusual form of activism when he wedded a tree in Peru. Marriage to an Argentinian tree took place a few months later. The ceremony was held at a public park in Buenos Aires. Torres read his vows, put on a ring, and kissed the tree to signify the union.
Torres married another tree a year later in Bogota, Colombia. During the ceremony, Torres asked the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia to stop making war and start planting trees.
In 2016, Torres married a Cypress tree in Mexico. The famous tree, known as El Tule or Arbol del Tule, is one of the oldest and widest trees in the world.
The activist continues to marry trees in order to bring awareness to his chosen cause. His latest marriage was to a tree in Guatemala City.[6]

Le Pont du Diable, or the Devil’s Bridge, is located in Southern France. The stone arch bridge was built in the 14th century. The structure must have witnessed many events during its long life, but the strangest may have occurred in 2013. In a ceremony blessed by a local mayor and attended by 14 guests, Jodi Rose married Le Pont du Diable.
Rose met Le Pont du Diable during her travels to various bridges throughout the world. She was working on a project called Singing Bridges, where she recorded the vibrations in bridge cables and used them to create music.
Rose loves her husband for many reasons. She says the bridge makes her feel connected to the Earth. She describes it as “fixed, stable, and rooted to the ground,” which are certainly good qualities to find in a bridge. Rose appreciates how her spouse provides her with a safe place to rest yet never tries to stop her when she is ready to go back out on the road.[7]
3Sal 9000

Love Plus is a dating simulation game. The goal in the game is to build a relationship with one of three female avatars. Players must woo the virtual women by buying gifts and taking them on dates, and the avatars respond to how the players behave during the courtship.
A Japanese man known as “Sal 9000” built a virtual relationship with Nene Anegasaki, one of the avatars on Love Plus. After the 25-year-old dated Nene virtually for three months, he decided he was ready to take the next step, so he married her in 2009. It was not Sal’s avatar that married Nene; it was his real-life self who vowed to love the Nintendo DS character until death did them part. Sal wore a white tuxedo to his wedding, which was attended by friends and streamed live online.[8]
Sal married Nene because she is his dream woman. He says the female avatar is better than a human girlfriend because she does not get angry at him easily. When Nene does get upset with Sal, she is quick to forgive. Sal says that since he has Nene, he has no need for a human woman in his life.
An author who analyzes Internet and game addictions stated that he is not concerned about Sal’s health. Sal communicates well enough with people in the real world, so his marriage to a video game character is not a sign of someone with an extreme problem.
2Lauren Adkins

Where there is a teenage heartthrob, there are millions of girls who fantasize about becoming Mrs. Teenage Heartthrob. Typically, these ladies grow up and leave their fantasies behind as they resign themselves to finding a love interest in the real world.
Lauren Adkins was not interested in facing reality. When Adkins read the Twilight novels as a teenager, she developed a major crush on the character of Edward Cullen. The lead male vampire won the hearts of many teen girls, and Adkins admits to being “obsessed.” When the novels were adapted to film, Robert Pattinson was cast for the role of Cullen. The moment Adkins saw the Twilight movie for the first time, her infatuation transferred from the fictional character to the actor who played him. Adkins saw Pattinson as the perfect personification of her fictional crush, and she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.
Adkins might not have been willing to let go of her fantasy crush, but she was realistic enough to know that her chances with Pattinson were slim. Instead of holding out for the actual actor to show up on her doorstep, Adkins found a life-size cardboard cutout of Pattinson and married it.
The wedding took place in 2014 at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. 50 guests witnessed the nuptials of a 25-year-old female and a two-dimensional image of the Twilight star. Adkins and her pseudo-Pattinson husband honeymooned in Los Angeles.[9]
1Carol Santa Fe

Carol Santa Fe was only nine years old when she met the love of her life. After 36 years of adoration, Carol married her wife “Daidra” in 2015. Daidra is a train station in San Diego called the Santa Fe Depot.
Carol commutes 45 minutes every day in order to spend time with her wife. She greets the train station and tells it about her day. In addition to conversation, Carol says she mentally has sex with Daidra. A certain area of the station gives Carol privacy, where she touches Daidra and feels as if her wife is holding and kissing her. She admits that when the trains rev their engines, it turns her on. Carol says Daidra is romantic and the love of her life. They consummated their relationship a few years before tying the knot, but only mentally. Carol refrains from engaging in physical sex with the train station, because it is a public venue, and she wants to be respectful.
Carol does her best to hide the fact that she is conversing and cuddling with Daidra when she visits, but not because she is ashamed of her feelings. Citing how Erica Eiffel was banned from the Eiffel tower after too many public displays of affection, Carol explains that she does not want to end up in a similar situation where she can no longer spend time with her wife

  Trey Gowdy Resigns.
Posted by: BIAD - 01-14-2018, 01:49 PM - Forum: General News and Events - Replies (1)

Quote:Trey Gowdy resigns as House Ethics Committee member.

'Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is stepping down from his role on the House Ethics Committee, citing a
"challenging workload" as the reason for his departure.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=3092]

Gowdy informed House Speaker Paul Ryan of his decision in a letter on Jan. 10, the details of which
were not made public until Saturday. The South Carolina Republican was tapped to lead the House
Oversight Committee last June, after the former chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, left Congress
for a job at Fox News.

"When I became Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, I knew I would
not be able to keep all other committee assignments to include Judiciary, Intelligence, and Ethics,"
Gowdy wrote.

The former prosecutor was the only lawmaker serving four separate committee assignments when
he stepped down from the Ethics panel last week.
"I was happy to finish out the calendar year and conclude some matters then pending before the
Committee," he said.

Ryan's office expressed gratitude to Gowdy for his service on the panel.

“Mr. Gowdy was serving on four committees when he ran for Chair of the Oversight and Government Reform
Committee," said Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong. "He requested to be relieved of his duties from the
Ethics Committee should he win chairmanship given the significant increased workload.
We are grateful for his five years of service on the Ethics Committee and for agreeing to serve the remainder
of the calendar year.”

Gowdy faced criticism late last year after it was revealed that he used $150,000 in taxpayer dollars to settle
a dispute with a former aide, who had accused the GOP congressman of firing him after he refused to focus
his work on investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

He has also come under routine fire from Democratic members of the House Oversight Committee over his
handling of matters related to the Trump White House and the ongoing federal investigation into Russian
election interference.

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, said last month that it was
"astonishing" Gowdy wouldn't meet with a whistleblower who claimed to have information on former
White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Flynn pled guilty on Dec. 1 to lying to federal investigators as part of the federal Russia probe...'

  Hawaii's False Missile Threat, or Failed False Flag?
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 01-14-2018, 04:23 AM - Forum: Breaking News - Replies (4)

So, they are trying to tell the public that some employee pushed the wrong button during shift change that sent out an alarm to the State of HI to take cover for an incoming missile?  Okay...   good enough; go on about your day, nothing to see here. 

OR...  start digging to find out what the hell really happened!! 

Hawaii emergency officials confirmed Saturday evening that an alert about an inbound ballistic missile was a mistake, which a state emergency official attributed to someone pushing the wrong button.

Vern Miyagi, who oversees the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (EMA), said at a news conference late Saturday that while employees were changing shifts earlier in the day and doing a test of their ballistic missile prep checklist, the wrong button was pushed.

[Image: 1515889359891.jpg?ve=1&tl=1]
An emergency alert of Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency, which was sent to the islands early Saturday morning, read: "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

Rather than triggering a test of the system, it went into actual event mode. He confirmed that to trigger the alert, there is a two-step process involving only one employee — who both triggers the alarm, then also confirms it.

"There is a screen that says, 'Are you sure you want to do this?'" Miyagi said. The employee confirmed the alert, inadvertently causing a panic in a state already on edge over saber-rattling missile threats from North Korea. 

Hawaii Gov. David Ige said there wasn't a process in place to send out a message stating "that this is a false alarm."

"You know, we were not prepared for that, the fact that an alert was issued that was incorect," Ige said. "So we have that built now."
At about 8:07 a.m. local time, Hawaii citizens received an emergency alert on their phone that read: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”

At 8:20 a.m. local time, Hawaii EMA tweeted that there was “NO missile threat” to the state. However, the tweet didn't reach people who aren't on the social media platform.


Roughly 15 minutes later, the U.S. Pacific Command issued a statement, clarifying there was "no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii."
It wasn't until 38 minutes after the first warning — at 8:45 a.m. — that Hawaii's EMA alerted mobile devices across the islands that that initial alert was a false alarm.

At the news conference late Saturday, Miyagi said that there will now be a two-person rule implemented for sending test alerts and actual alerts. He also offered an apology for the stresses resulting from the false alarm.

"I deeply apologize for the trouble and the heartbreak that we caused today," Miyagi said, taking responsibility for the incident as he called it a result of human error. "We made a mistake."

He added that EMA will "hold off" on future tests of the system "until we get this squared away."

Gov. Ige said Saturday is "a day that most of us will never forget," a day Hawaii residents thought "our worst nightmare might be happening."
"I know firsthand that was happened today was totally unacceptable and many in our community was deeply affected by this," Ige said. "And I'm sorry for that pain and confusion that anyone might've experienced."

Hawaii House Speaker Scott Saiki said the system state residents have been told to rely on failed miserably on Saturday.
"Clearly, government agencies are not prepared and lack the capacity to deal with emergency situations," Saiki said. He also noted that the State House would begin an immediate investigation.

Many social media users posted footage of the emergency alert being broadcast on local television.

"The U.S. Pacific Command has detected a missile threat to Hawaii. A missile may impact on land or sea within minutes. This is not a drill," the television broadcast stated. "If you are indoors, stay indoors. If you are outdoors, seek immediate shelter in a building. Remain indoors well away from windows."

"If you are driving, pull safely to the side of the road and seek shelter in a building or lay on the floor. We will announce when the threat has ended. This is not a drill. Take immediate action measures," the broadcast concluded.

Fox News' Chad Pergram spoke with two people on the Kona side of the Big Island who said they were told to stay in their hotel room and that there was a missile incoming. 

One Twitter user posted a photo of a message board on a Hawaiian highway that read: "MISSILE ALERT IN ERROR THERE IS NO THREAT."

Well, you can buy the above story if it makes you FEEL better.  If not, and you would like to know what is really going on, take a look at some other information.  I'm not a huge fan of the Dinar Chronicles, but they do make better sense than some guy just accidentally pushing the wrong button.

Operation Disclosure
Quote:Yesterday, Jan. 12, an anomaly was detected off the coast of Hawaii which held off the RV release.

Today, Jan. 13, the cabal attempted to nuke the Hawaiian islands and put the blame on North Korea.

(Sources have confirmed that the false alarm today in Hawaii was a cover story. The attack was real. The media had their "North Korea Attacks the Hawaiian Islands" story preemptively ready. The cabal panicked when the attack failed. A cover story was shortly made up and the attack was branded as a false alarm. The Emergency Broadcast System does not lie. Someone pressing the "wrong button" simply does not happen. This was another cabal attempt to derail the transition process by fabricating a war.)

Missile launches were detected in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii.

The launches originated from the same anomaly detected yesterday, Jan. 12.

The missiles were immediately intercepted and destroyed.

The anomaly was revealed to be a nuclear stealth submarine.

The nuclear stealth submarine was located and destroyed shortly after the attempted attack.

Planetary scans did not detect any anomalies two days ago on the 11th.

The Alliance believes the submarine originated from another D.U.M.B. located somewhere in the Pacific.

The Alliance is now actively searching for said D.U.M.B.

All legal documents regarding the RV/GCR/GESARA are signed and sealed.

The Chinese Elders are withholding RV authorization until the situation has been resolved.

The Alliance expects to resolve the situation within a couple of days.

In the meantime, the Republic is preparing for the deliveries of the prosperity funds in the U.S.

And then we also have this post on one of the Chan Boards:

So, what do I think?  
I think this was a real attack by the Deep State trying to get President Trump to strike NK to get us into a war.  Thankfully, President Trump didn't fall for it. 
The thing they will use against him now is saying he wouldn't give the go ahead to strike back and he is putting the American people at risk.

I think he knows exactly what's he's doing; he knows who the players are, and he knew this was going to be a false flag, and he said he wasn't going to play ball with them.  I also think he knew we have the "advanced" technology to take this missile down, which we did.  President Trump would not put any of our people at risk of being blown up.  That's what I think.

  Department of Defense Audit - What Was Found
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 01-13-2018, 05:40 PM - Forum: Political News and more - No Replies

I don't think this is all they'll find, but it's a great start... $830 Million In "Missing" Helicopters!

Missing helicopters?!   tinybighuh   How the heck do you lose so many helicopters?  This ought to open some eyes out there, right?

Quote:After several decades of nation-building and trillions of dollars missing or improperly recorded, the long-awaited audit of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has finally begun. On Wednesday, the Defense Department Comptroller David Norquist told lawmakers in Washington that the DoD’s first-ever department wide audit will cost about $367 million in 2018 and an additional $551 million to fix the problems.

Norquist, who testified before the House Armed Services Committee, said Defense Secretary James N. Mattis and Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick M. Shanahan are in full support of the audit. Back in May 2017, President Trump appointed Norquist to finally put the military’s financial house back in order after many years of delays.

What is surprising, if only in retrospect, is that according to the World Economic Forum, U.S. Department of Defense has been named the largest employer in the world with some 3.2 million members on its payroll and $2.4 trillion in assets but has never administered a full audit.

"This is the first time the department will undergo a full financial statement audit,"he said. "A financial statement audit is comprehensive and occurs annually and it covers more than financial management," Norquist explained to Lawmakers.
The purpose of the audit will document military equipment and real property along with condition and location. “It tests the vulnerability of our security systems and it validates the accuracy of personnel records and actions,” Norquist said.
DoD News says that 1,200 auditors are currently working on the project to assess the books.

Quote:The department will have 1,200 financial statement auditors assessing the books and records to develop a true account of the state of the department, the comptroller said. It will take time to pass all the process and system changes necessary to pass the audit and get a so-called “clean opinion,” he said. He noted that it took the Department of Homeland Security — a much smaller and newer agency — 10 years to get a clean audit.

“But we don’t have to wait to see the benefits of a clean opinion,” Norquist said. “The financial statement audit helps drive enterprise improvements to standardize our business practices and improve the quality of our data.”

Something strange is going on in the financial system. And according to The Wall Street Journal, it’s causing some investors to move massive amounts of money out of the banking system.

DoD News made an interesting observation how the audit will provide “information and accountability to the American people.” Why now? How come all of a sudden the DoD wants to become transparent to the American people? Perhaps, it is due to Washington’s two-decades of failed nation-building throughout the rest of the world, although it is unlikely.

Norquist said, “the taxpayers deserve the same level of confidence as a shareholder that DoD’s financial statement presents a true and accurate picture of its financial condition and operations. Transparency, accountability and business process reform are some of the benefits of a financial statement audit.”

And in a preview of what is to come, Norquist told the House Armed Services Committee that an initial Army audit found 39 UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter ($830,700,000) were not adequately recorded in the property system. "The Air Force identified 478 structures and buildings at 12 installations that were not in its real property system,” he added. In other words these helicopters were simply "missing" on the books.

Alas, the mismanagement within the DoD doesn’t stop there: in a recent report, the U.S. military lost some 44,000 troops across the globe in a country location labeled as “Unknown.”

Going even deeper into the rabbit hole, Mark Skidmore, a Professor of Economics at MSU specializing in public finance, found the Department of Defense and Housing & Urban Development may have spent as much as $21 trillion on mysterious items between 1998 and 2015.

“This is incomplete, but we have found $21 trillion in adjustments over that period. The biggest chunk is for the Army. We were able to find 13 of the 17 years and we found about $11.5 trillion just for the Army,” Skidmore said.

Considering that today’s already known accounting blunders at the Department of Defense are no small matter, we wonder what the 1,200 auditors will find when they perform the first ever dive down the rabbit hole of decades of failed proxy wars, regime changes and dictator slush funds in history?

Alas, the mismanagement within the DoD doesn’t stop there: in a recent report, the U.S. military lost some 44,000 troops across the globe in a country location labeled as “Unknown.”

Could these 44,000 be part of the SSP that "doesn't exist"?  What's going on here?
