  Two Flint Water Investagators Found Dead
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 05-20-2016, 06:47 AM - Forum: Hot Button Issues - Replies (1)

I tell you what, People, this is getting way out of hand!  Every time "they" want to keep a secret about something from the public, they just simply kill anyone ready to speak out.  

And they never have to pay for their crimes!  It makes me want to scream!!!! 



Quote:Two people who were connected to the Flint water company investigation were both found dead in the space of a week this month.

Quote:Water Treatment Plant Foreman, Matthew McFarland, and the woman leading the lead poisoning suit, Sasha Avonna Bell, were found dead within days of each other.

Vigilantcitizen.com reports:

The Flint water crisis began exactly two years ago, on April 2014, when Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water to the Flint River – to which officials had failed to apply corrosion inhibitors. Almost immediately, Flint residents complained about the water’s color, taste and odor. In the following months, numerous water issues arose, with little to no governmental action to fix them.

    August and September 2014 boil-water advisories were issued by the city due to coliform bacteria detection
    On August 21, 2014 test showed the city’s water tested high for THMs, a chlorine byproduct of disinfecting water, with which long term exposure has been linked to cancer and other diseases.
    Though the city stated that the water was safe, the employees of the Flint Public Library declared the water undrinkable after noticing that the water from the faucets and toilets was discolored.
    On March 2, 2016, it was reported that the state of Michigan blocked Flint from returning to Lake Huron water from the Detroit water system when it agreed to grant the city an emergency loan of $7 million in April 2015
    It was discovered that the high levels of lead were due to orthophosphate being omitted from the water treatment process, while using a pH of 7.4 and that the orange water was due to the high concentration of chloride in the Flint River water, which caused excessive corrosion of the cast iron mains pipes.

Far from taking decisive action, governments denied that the water was toxic.    


Over 10,000 children were exposed to water contaminated with lead, which has devastating effects on the brain:


Quote:Childhood lead exposure causes a reduction in intellectual functioning and IQ, academic performance, and problem-solving skills, and an increased risk of attention deficit disorder, aggression, and hyperactivity. According to studies, children with elevated levels of lead in the blood are more likely as adults to commit crimes, be imprisoned, be unemployed or underemployed, or be dependent on government services.
– Julie Mack, Lead levels elevated for thousands of Michigan children outside of Flint


Things turned really ugly after a massive investigation was started and lawsuits are being filed.


Cover Up

Quote:Days before the federal government opened an investigation into the Flint water crisis, someone broke into a vacant City Hall office full of documents related to the embattled Michigan city’s water system.

Nearly three months later, officials have confirmed that a TV went missing, but little else is known, according to the Flint Journal.

Without suspects or a firm handle on what else may have been swiped, authorities told the paper last week that the crime may remain unsolved.

Days before the federal government opened an investigation into the Flint water crisis, someone broke into a vacant City Hall office full of documents related to the embattled Michigan city’s water system.
– Washington Post, The mystery surrounding missing water files at Flint City Hall: ‘It was definitely an inside job’


On April 16th, a foreman at the Water Treatment Plant, Matthew McFarland, was found dead at the young age of 43. Cause of death is unknown. He had previously been interviewed about the water crisis.


Quote:Already reeling from the news of criminal charges against one of its workers in the wake of the Flint water crisis, city workers are now dealing with the sudden death of a foreman at the plant.

Water Treatment Plant Foreman Matthew McFarland, 43, of Otter Lake died suddenly on on Saturday, April 16, according to his obituary.

The Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department said a friend found McFarland unresponsive at a home in Otter Lake. There were no signs of foul play.

An autopsy did not determine a cause of death and police are awaiting toxicology reports. The investigation remains open.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to Matt’s co-workers, his family and especially his children,” said Flint Mayor Karen Weaver. “He worked for the City of Flint for more than 18 years and we thank him for his devotion and service.”

“We all have been brought together by this water crisis and we are all mourning his death,” Weaver said in a statement. “In lieu of flowers, the family has expressed they would appreciate donations to establish a fund for (his children) Vance and Ella’s college expenses.”

McFarland’s death comes as Flint’s water plant deals with news that Flint Utilities Manager Michael Glasgow is one of three men facing criminal charges in connection with the city’s water crisis.

Glasgow is accused of tampering with evidence when he allegedly changed testing results to show there was less lead in city water than there actually was. He is also charged with willful neglect of office.

Michigan Department of Environmental Quality employees Stephen Busch and Michael Prysby are charged with misconduct in office, conspiracy to tamper with evidence, tampering with evidence and violations of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette’s office confirmed that McFarland was previously interviewed as part of its ongoing investigation into the city’s water crisis.
– mlive, Flint water plant continues to reel with sudden death of foreman.


And only days later, a 19-year old woman leading the Flint water crisis lawsuit was found shot dead in her home.


Quote:A woman at the center of a bellwether Flint water crisis lawsuit was one of two women who were shot to death inside a townhouse earlier this week.

Sasha Avonna Bell was one of the first of a growing number of people to file a lawsuit in connection to the Flint water crisis after she claimed that her child had been lead poisoned.

Bell was found dead April 19 in the 2600 block of Ridgecrest Drive at the Ridgecrest Village Townhouses. Sacorya Renee Reed was also found shot to death in the home.

  ICE under fire for releasing thousands of illegal immigrants with rap sheets
Posted by: senona - 05-20-2016, 06:19 AM - Forum: Hot Button Issues - Replies (4)

One just cannot help but wonder, who in the hell makes these dumb-azz decisions???
I know the Obama admin is to blame, but who did not bother to check and see how bad their crimes were first, before releasing?


Quote:The Obama administration took fire at a House hearing Thursday for releasing back into society thousands of illegal immigrants who had committed crimes on U.S. soil – including those behind more than 200 murders.

“These are people that were here illegally, got caught committing a crime, were convicted of that crime and instead of deporting them, they were just released back out in the United States of America,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said.

According to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2015 “freed 19,723 criminal aliens, who had a total of 64,197 convictions among them.”

This included “8,234 violent convictions and 208 homicide convictions.”


Of course the ICE director defended this action
Like they were really going to admit a mistake....yeah, right


Quote:“I can’t tell you how disheartening it is to hear a very important issue being bandied about as a political football,” Saldana said. “I would ask we focus on solutions rather than political banter.”

Saldana described the number of releases in 2015 as an improvement over prior years. The agency also made modest gains in detaining illegal immigrants but still released nearly 20,000 criminal offenders last year who had been convicted of crimes ranging from arson to embezzlement to sexual assault, according to the CIS report.


I have no issue with releasing illegal felons with minor charges.
But not murderers or rapists, come on people
WTH are you thinking?
Evidently you are not


Quote:The report also said dozens of freed criminals were later charged with homicide as well.

 Among the murders detailed was that of Grant Ronnebeck, an Arizona convenience store clerk. He allegedly was killed over a pack of cigarettes by an illegal immigrant -- who had been facing deportation proceedings following a burglary charge, but was released on bond.

And more recently, Iowa woman Sarah Root was killed in January, allegedly by an illegal immigrant drunk driver. The suspect was later bailed out and disappeared.

Though the total number of 2015 releases is lower compared to the past two years, the rate of releases is about the same, according to the report. Of the crimes on record, 12,307 involved drunk-driving convictions; 1,728 were cases of assault; and 216 were kidnapping cases. 


Not very encouraging at all...smh



Now then, if that was one of us, an American citizen who commited a crime, we would still be sitting in jail.

However these ILLEGALS for whatever reason get a free get out of jail card, only to commit more crimes
All the while getting free help, health care, education

Yet when an American citizen speaks out about them and pubic safety, oh hell, we are called racists/bigots


I read a comment somewhere and they nailed it...


*** Selective Enforcement of Laws ***





Unbelievable
Our country is so screwed up....... illegals get more of a free pass, literally, than a U.S. citizen who busts their azz trying to make a living, support their family, paying taxes (which goes to help support illegals)
They commit a horrendous crime, they are let out to do it all over again



 I'm sure politics has a hand in all this, but still, I call it all bullshit!

  Inner Earth Anshar Group Takes First Step to Openly Reveal Themselves to Humanity
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 05-20-2016, 05:48 AM - Forum: UFOs, Aliens and Universal Questions - Replies (6)

During the latest episode of Cosmic Disclosure, Corey Goode revealed that "several ancient civilizations hidden in the subterranean regions of Earth have taken the first steps towards revealing themselves to surface humanity."
You can follow links provided in the source article to read more detailed information about Corey's meeting with this group from the January 14 episode.


Quote:Goode began by citing his early January 2016 visit to a futuristic underground city belonging to an Inner Earth civilization, and for the first time he identified them as the “Anshar,” who have existed a staggering 18 million years.
Goode said he could feel the excitement among the city’s inhabitants over the news that their leaders had decided to change an established policy of strict separation, and make preparations to openly reveal themselves to surface humanity.

The changed policy, Goode stated, emerged out of a December 2015 meeting held at a secret base in the Kuiper Asteroid Belt, where representatives of an alliance of seven Inner Earth civilizations met with a representative of the Sphere Being Alliance.



During a particular meeting in December, 2015, between the Anshar Group and the Sphere Being Alliance which took place in the Kuiper Belt base, Goode was invited as an intermediary for the two groups.
Goode says during this meeting he witnessed the Sphere Being Alliance representative, a 10 foot tall triangle headed being, severely reprimanding the Inner Earth civilizations for “not being proper stewards” of the planet.

Goode provided an image graphic as he saw it:


[Image: triangle-headed-being-768x405.png]


Quote:One of the first resulting steps taken was to stop falsely telling human ‘channelers’, who they had established telepathic communications with, that they were extraterrestrials. The new policy meant revealing that they were actually humans from the Earth’s interior.

Coincidentally, on January 17, 2016, three days after Goode’s initial report on his Inner Earth visit, a popular channeler of the “Galactic Federation” and “Ashtar Command”, Greg Giles, stunned his followers by a public statement that he had been deceived, and that he was not in communication with extraterrestrials after all. Instead, he says he had discovered that he was being fooled by a military group using Voice of God technology.


The so-called ‘channeled messages’ I received claiming to be from my soul family from the stars were in fact simple radio waves sent by U.S. government agents, allegedly from the military industrial complex, working in concert with volunteers, many of which are secret society members who help propagate enormous numbers of hoaxed news stories of UFOs and related space news, building a backdrop for a PSYOPS program that lures science and spirituality-minded individuals such as myself into their web.


Quote:Giles’ discovery that his telepathic contacts were not who they claimed to be may well have been a result of the January Kuiper Belt meeting, and the ramifications this had for the seven Inner Earth Civilizations in how they would respectively conduct themselves with surface humanity.


So, it seems the first steps have been taken to make contact.  However the Anshar Group have some concerns:


Quote:It is entirely understandable that there is considerable trepidation by some of the Inner Earth groups over the dangerous and warlike policies of national elites running affairs on the surface of our planet.
Thankfully, as the internet facilitates the rest of humanity awakening to the truth about secret space programs and extraterrestrial life, we will be better able to make national and global elites accountable for their policies.

Most importantly, it is unlikely that aggressive policies at a national or global level will be permitted once the rest of humanity learns the truth about the extent of deception that has been perpetrated upon it. We can, therefore, have great confidence that as Inner Earth civilizations reveal themselves, they will be warmly greeted by the vast majority of humanity and not subjected to war-like policies by unrestrained national elites.


Will the surface population greet these Ancients with warm respect, or will we continue our reptilian war mongering ways and shun them, or even worse, try to kill them?

We need to try to get along with them. They have technology that can improve our lives in ways we can't even begin to imagine.

I say, Welcome brothers and sisters.  What do you say?

There is much I left out of the source article.  Read it in full  HERE

  Unique Fragment from Earth’s Formation Returns after Billions of Years in Cold Storag

Tailless Manx comet from Oort Cloud brings clues about the origin of the Solar System


Quote:Astronomers have found a unique object that appears to be made of inner Solar System material from the time of Earth’s formation, which has been preserved in the Oort Cloud far from the Sun for billions of years. Observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope, and the Canada France Hawai`i Telescope, show that C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) is the first object to be discovered on a long-period cometary orbit that has the characteristics of a pristine inner Solar System asteroid. It may provide important clues about how the Solar System formed.



[Image: n2EmVbQ.png]



Quote:n a paper to be published today in the journal Science Advances, lead author Karen Meech of the University of Hawai`i’s Institute for Astronomy and her colleagues conclude that C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) formed in the inner Solar System at the same time as the Earth itself, but was ejected at a very early stage.

Their observations indicate that it is an ancient rocky body, rather than a contemporary asteroid that strayed out. As such, it is one of the potential building blocks of the rocky planets, such as the Earth, that was expelled from the inner Solar System and preserved in the deep freeze of the Oort Cloud for billions of years [1].

Karen Meech explains the unexpected observation: “We already knew of many asteroids, but they have all been baked by billions of years near the Sun. This one is the first uncooked asteroid we could observe: it has been preserved in the best freezer there is.”

C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) was originally identified by the Pan-STARRS1 telescope as a weakly active comet a little over twice as far from the Sun as the Earth. Its current long orbital period (around 860 years) suggests that its source is in the Oort Cloud, and it was nudged comparatively recently into an orbit that brings it closer to the Sun.

The team immediately noticed that C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) was unusual, as it does not have the characteristic tail that most long-period comets have when they approach so close to the Sun. As a result, it has been dubbed a Manx comet, after the tailless cat. Within weeks of its discovery, the team obtained spectra of the very faint object with ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile.

Careful study of the light reflected by C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) indicates that it is typical of asteroids known as S-type, which are usually found in the inner asteroid main belt. It does not look like a typical comet, which are believed to form in the outer Solar System and are icy, rather than rocky. It appears that the material has undergone very little processing, indicating that it has been deep frozen for a very long time. The very weak comet-like activity associated with C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS), which is consistent with the sublimation of water ice, is about a million times lower than active long-period comets at a similar distance from the Sun.

The authors conclude that this object is probably made of fresh inner Solar System material that has been stored in the Oort Cloud and is now making its way back into the inner Solar System.

So the tailless comet is named after a cat, cute.....Manx

That is a pretty cool discovery for sure!!
Would be nice if it would give them some answers as to how the Solar System was formed

  Crows Form, Nurse, and Share Grudges Against People
Posted by: senona - 05-20-2016, 04:28 AM - Forum: Animal House - Replies (16)

[Image: Vayp8Tz.png]
 

I have always had respect for animals and find myself talking to them, even birds.
Never have I thought of them as 'dumb', just because they have a small head
 Their 'smarts' come in other various ways, that many people may not pick up on

Which is where this article comes into play, about a study that was done on crows


Quote:When it comes to intelligence, birds get no respect. For a long time, scientists assumed birds were stupid because their brains had significant differences from ours. But recent studies on bird brains and abilities are putting those fallacies in their place. Researchers have found sophisticated behavior in birds from finches and pigeons to Antarctic gulls. But there’s one group of birds that consistently amazes: crows and ravens.

Within the last 10 years we’ve learned that crows can make, store, and care for tools. They can count and exercise self-restraint. They can use bait to catch fish. They can certainly play. And, the authors of the Royal Proceedings study say, they can nurse some serious grudges.


'Grudges'.....crows carry grudges you ask???


Quote:Researchers at the University of Washington’s School of Forest Resources bought two masks that looked like human faces. A caveman-looking mask was designated the “dangerous” mask, while a Dick Cheney mask was “neutral.”

They then visited wild crows at five sites around Seattle. At each site, the person wearing the caveman mask would approach the crows, trapped a few, banded their legs, and set them free—an experience the birds did not enjoy. As soon as the researcher let them go, the birds began yelling at their captor with a harsh, aggressive cry called “scolding.”

The sounds of conflict attracted more birds, which joined in scolding and attacking the researcher, even though they’d never met. “The mob of two to 15 birds hounds us, sometimes diving from the sky to within a few meters or less. This pursuit lasts about 100 meters (328 feet) as we walk away,” crow expert John Marzluff told Discovery News.

The Dick Cheney mask did not elicit a response.


But, even when they went to another area they had not been in, the birds knew the caveman mask was bad, and reacted to it
Talk about how gossip spreads....LOL


Quote:Marzluff and his colleagues then traveled to other crow territories.

The sight of the caveman mask caused an immediate ruckus among these crows—even though none of them had ever been caught or banded. Crows up to a mile away from the original site had heard about this no-good caveman guy, and they knew he was trouble when he walked in.


Okay, fine...so crows carry grudges
But how long does it last?
Evidently a long time!


Quote:The grudge didn’t wear off, either.

Marzluff said return trips in the caveman mask provoked the same hostile response, even five years later.
 He told Discovery News, "Individual crows that are adults can live 15-40 years in the wild (most die when young, but those that make it to adulthood can live a long time) and they probably remember important associations they have formed for much of their lives."


WOW! What a memory I must say

Will have to admit, after reading this, it gives me a whole new perspective on crows (birds) in general.
I will keep talking to them....but can't help but wonder
Do you think they get offended when I call them "feather face"? Nah.....so far, none have chased me (yet)

  Trump and the things you may not know about him
Posted by: 727Sky - 05-20-2016, 04:04 AM - Forum: Election 2016 ! - Replies (6)

Quote:Trump - Things You Might Not Know About Him




Peggy Noonan wrote about Trump this weekend in her Wall Street Journal

 

Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up.  The criticisms of Trump are amazinglymissing something. They arelacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him.  After all the employees he's had and all the business deals he's made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integritythan people may think.  And while it may surprise many, he's actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness.  A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City.  A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn't brag about that.  Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others.But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump's plan is for America. It's funny how so many people say they don't know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework.  But, since most Americans won't.

 

1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country's problems without being compensated for doing so.  If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help.  Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life.  He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

 

2.) Trump wants America to have a strong military again.  He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense.  He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn't said it directly that I know of, Trump's attitude about America and about winning tells me he'd most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle.  Clearly Trump is a "win at all costs" kind of guy, and I'm sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too

 

3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles American interests come first.  Always.  No apologies. Maximum firepower and military preparedness. Only go to war to win. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies. Keep the technological sword razor sharp. See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. Respect and support our present and past warriors.

 

4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

 

5.) Trump makes the point that China's manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them.  He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing.  For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U.S., once again creating jobs here.

 

6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws.  According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin's drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.  

 

7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America.  He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he'll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn't put it past him.)  He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.

 

8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy.  He wants to make America the place to do business.  He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we've lost to the current tax system.  He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth.  He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.

 

9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it's a "job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity" that "can't be reformed, salvaged, or fixed."  He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down.  He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

 

10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue.  He has said he believes that if we don't stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.

 

11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.  He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy.  On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

 

12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs "a safety net, not a hammock." He believes in welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare rolls and encourage people to get back to work.  And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

 

13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

 

14.) Trump opposes Common Core.

 

15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

 

16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

 

17.) Trump's view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a state’s rights issue, not a federal issue.

 

18.) Trump supports the death penalty.  Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm... looks like he believes in horse sense!).  He says it's about seeing the unseen and that's the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around.  He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: "When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events.  Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it's on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million.  I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done.  The problem wasn't the size of the room; it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy.  We didn't need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs!  So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people.  Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense.  It's amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.  On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

 

19. Donald Trump's entire life has been made up of success and winning.  He's been accused of bankruptcies, but that's not true.  He's never filed personal bankruptcy.  He's bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time.  But he's never been bankrupt personally.

 

20. He's a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.  Earlier I quoted Trump saying, "I love America.  And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even."   We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans.  Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.  Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due.

 

Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer, as it is important to know what each of our candidates to replace a President who has ruined us globally, and who has put us on a path to disaster!   This is not an appeal to vote for Trump, only to give some depth of comparison, before this week's debate.

  Could these newly-discovered planets orbiting an ultracool dwarf host life?

Three Earth-sized planets are thought to have surface temperatures which would allow liquid water, making them potentially hospitable to life


Quote:Three distant worlds that orbit a feeble star in the constellation of Aquarius are the most likely places discovered so far to find life beyond the solar system, astronomers say.

The Earth-sized planets are all thought to have regions where surface temperatures fall within the Goldilocks zone and are neither too hot nor too cold for water to run freely, making them at least potentially hospitable to life.

Belgian astronomers found the planets using the Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope (Trappist) at the La Silla Observatory in Chile’s Atacama desert. The planets revealed themselves through the periodic dimming that occurred as they passed in front of their parent star, an ultracool dwarf that lies only 40 light years away.

Known formally as 2MASS J23062928-0502285, but helpfully dubbed Trappist-1, the star is not much larger than Jupiter and emits a fraction of the sun’s radiation. The star is too faint to see in the night sky with the naked eye, or even through a large amateur telescope.

Quote:“Because the star is so faint, all of these planets have temperatures that are similar to those on Earth. They could have liquid water on the surfaces, and on Earth life is critically dependent on water. We don’t know, but maybe there could be life there,” said Michaël Gillon who led the research at the University of Liege.
 
The planets are thought to be tidally-locked to their star, meaning one half is in permanent daytime, and the other in constant darkness. If the planets have atmospheres, the alien air would even out the temperature difference across the hemispheres. At the hottest spots, the temperature would reach about 100 Celsius on the innermost planet, 70 Celsius on the second, and perhaps 30Celsius on the outermost world.

“These are the first temperate Earth-sized planets found outside the solar system, and the first we can study in detail,” said Gillon. “That makes them extremely promising targets for us.” The composition of the planets is not yet known, but the sizes mean they must be solid. “They could be iron-rich like Mercury, or mostly silicate rocks, or extremely icy, like the moons of Jupiter,” said Gillon.

Interesting to see what they find out about these planets in time

In another thread I did, it said we have only touched on 5% of the Universe
Just imagine what all is out there that we have yet to discover

  Earth's "Magnetosphere" COLLAPSED in Space April 22 for two+ hours!
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 05-20-2016, 02:13 AM - Forum: Fragile Earth - Replies (11)

A terrifying event took place in space surrounding our planet; for two hours on April 22nd earth's "Magnetosphere" COLLAPSED leaving the entire planet vulnerable to solar winds and some radiation.


EARTH'S MAGNETOSPHERE

Quote:Deep within the Earth, a fierce molten core is generating a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds. The protective field, called the "magnetosphere" extends thousands of miles into space and its magnetism affects everything from global communication to animal migration and weather patterns.  The magnetosphere is the region of space surrounding Earth where the dominant magnetic field is the magnetic field of Earth, rather than the magnetic field of interplanetary space. The magnetosphere is formed by the interaction of the solar wind with Earth’s magnetic field. This figure illustrates the shape and size of Earth’s magnetic field that is continually changing as it is buffeted by the solar wind.

COMPLETE COLLAPSE FOR TWO+ HOURS!

Quote:This morning at 01:37:05 eastern US Time, which is 05:37:05 UTC, satellites from the NASA Space Weather Prediction Center detected a complete collapse of earth's magnetosphere!  It simply vanished for just over two hours, resuming as normal around 03:39:51 eastern US time, which is 07:39:51 UTC.  

Here is how NASA Space Weather Satellites recorded the event:

DEVASTATING EFFECTS UPON EARTH

Quote:This magnetic juggling act can have devastating effects upon Earth.  This is not a small magnetic situation; it is HUGE . . . planetary HUGE.   When something this large happens to earth's magnetic fields, it can trigger massive earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, unpredictable ocean currents and tides.  The blast of heat energy that managed to get through the magnetoPAUSE during this time on the dayside of the planet, will have sent a large surge of heat energy into the exposed ocean areas, increasing water temperatures enough to cause severe storms.

Hang-on, folks.  We could  be in for quite a ride over the next few days as this strange occurrence plays out in earth's weather and seismic events.

This doesn't sound good!!  I haven't had any major problems here... yet, but I wonder if any damage was done elsewhere?  Anyone have anything to report?

  Overwhelming UFO Cases & Secret Black Programs
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 05-20-2016, 02:00 AM - Forum: The Enlightened Ones or The Powers That Be - Replies (2)

Some people don't believe we have advanced air craft reverse engineered from UFOs.  Well, here is the proof that we do. Just take a look what we have already that you might not know about...

Any pilots out there will LOVE this!  ;)

This is a new video where a Military Aerospace Historian, Michael Schratt, exposes government secrecy and the subject of UFOs, mystery aircraft, and classified propulsion systems buried deep within the military industrial complex.

Michael has charts, government documents, drawings, and real photos of craft that have been built from reverse engineered alien crafts that have crashed on earth.
In the second part of the video, he discusses some of the best cases of UFOs brought to the attention of MUFON.

This clearly shows evidence that the Military Industrial Complex has had advanced technology and secret air craft in our skies for at least 60 years.
Yes, a lot of what we see these days are "ours", but there are still cases of real UFOs visiting our planet today.


Quote:Prepare yourself for a wild ride as Military Aerospace Historian Michael Schratt blows the lid off Government Secrecy and the subject of UFOs, Mystery Aircraft, and classified propulsion systems buried deep within the military industrial complex. Totally visual and loaded with secrets, this presentation will take viral to a whole new level.

Over the years, Michael has developed relationships with a number of inside contacts who have had first hand experience dealing with classified “black programs”, including former USAF pilots, retired Naval personnel and aerospace engineers who have maintained a TOP SECRET Q “MAJIC” clearance. Their stories and the photographic evidence to back them up, is proof that the US Military has ALIEN TECHNOLOGY and fleets of SECRET AIRCRAFT developed over the last 60 years, that are far more advanced then anything ever seen by the general public and they’re in mass production and in the air right now, performing military missions.

In addition, BOMBSHELL UFO EVIDENCE is presented that demonstrates that ALIEN SPACECRAFT are visiting Earth.
