Oregon Wildfires: Militias love it, CH-47F airborne firefighter!

20 SEP 2017 /20:16 UTC-07 Tango 06 (30 Sharivar 1396/29 Dhu l-Hijja 1438/02 Ji-Yu 4715)

“We love doing this. This is our favorite part of the year!   …..We run a great risk in this, if there’s an up-draft of heat, or a down-draft, we have to be able to be ‘Johnny-on-the-spot’ to keep us in the air. There’s a lot more challenge in it, risk versus reward. It’s super rewarding when we are combating open flame all day long.”-Sergeant Joseph Ford, Oregon National Guard

Oregon Army National Guard’s Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 168th Aviation Regiment has dropped more than 4.5-million liters (1.2-million U.S. gallons) of water using three of their new CH-47 F-model Chinooks, in the past month and a half.

“Where else can you go where you get to do this? I have the coolest job in the world! One morning I’m at my home station, and later that afternoon I’m 5-hundred-miles away, supporting a state mission and dropping buckets of water. I get a lot of satisfaction doing these state missions.”-Sergeant Jeremy Maddox

“Those Air Attack guys have been doing this often for 20-to-30 years to get to this level, they know the big picture…we can’t put the fire out completely, but what we can do is help control it, and keep it from spreading certain directions.”-Chief Warrant Officer 2 David Brannen

“There is a lot of helicopter on the Chinooks back here (behind the flight deck or cockpit), that the pilots can’t see. Our job is to paint a picture for them, a mental picture they can’t see, so they know and feel comfortable with what we’re going into. It takes a lot of trust in the back-seaters from the pilots. It’s a team effort. Without one, the job can’t be accomplished.”-Sergeant Jeremy Maddox


Operation Jupiter: Jamming all your child’s vaccines into one shot!

15 SEP 2017 (06:18 UTC-07 Tango 06) 24 Sharivar 1396/23 Dhu l-Hijja 1438/25 Wu-Shen 7th month 4715

“For the first time, we can create a library of tiny, encased vaccine particles, each programmed to release at a precise, predictable time, so that people could potentially receive a single injection that, in effect, would have multiple boosters already built into it.”-Robert Langer, MIT

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) claims to have come up with a way to put all your child’s vaccines into one shot, using microparticles.

Using nano and/or microparticles for vaccines is not a new idea, considered as far back as 1991.  The MIT injection uses that latest 3D printing technology to create a new type of microparticle: “Each layer is first fabricated on its own, and then they’re assembled togethe. Part of the novelty is really in how we align and seal the layers. In doing so we developed a new method that can make structures which current 3-D printing methods cannot. This new method called SEAL (StampEd Assembly of polymer Layers) can be used with any thermoplastic material and allows for fabrication of microstructures with complex geometries that could have broad applications, including injectable pulsatile drug delivery, pH sensors, and 3-D microfluidic devices.”-Ana Jaklenec, MIT researcher

They claim it works on mice, they haven’t tested it on humans.  I wonder how the plastic used to make the shots will affect your child?


“we have too many people”: U.S. Hi-Tech/Communications breakdown, August 2017

More proof you brick-n-mortar store owners can’t directly blame the internet/high-tech competition for your demise. Incomplete list of U.S. internet/high-tech/communications job destruction announcements in August 2017:

Moody’s Investor Service revealed what I’ve been saying for years; internet retail is highly overrated.  In fact, so called retail giant Amazon is not a giant at all, accounting for only 10% of all U.S. retail sales!  Walmart and Costco are still the retail kings.

Alaska:  The trustee of chapter 11 bankrupt busted Alaska Dispatch News wants to kill it off by declaring chapter 7 bankruptcy.

North Carolina: State taxpayers screwed as industrial hi-tech battery maker Alevo now chapter 11 bankrupt busted and dead, saying “This decision was driven by the formidable challenges of bringing a new technology into commercial production and lacking the financial wherewithal to continue on through repeated manufacturing delays.”  It must be noted the company got $163-thousand taxpayer dollars for the express purpose of training up new employees.  

Ohio:  In Dayton, Krush Technologies suddenly laid off 40 people, apparently because the new Krush Digital doesn’t need as many employees.

History of military computers since WW2, birth of the internet!

Not many users of today’s hi-tech internet/social media know that it originated with the U.S. military during the Cold War.

The first ‘internet’ was called arpanet.  The U.S. Air Force explains in this video:

Irma: Puerto Rico targeted, Florida & Texas preps!

USAF radio announcement of National Guard deployments:

The U.S. Navy began evacuating 5-thousand people from Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West in Florida.

False Flag: U.S.-NATO puppet Ukraine supplied North Korea with ICBM engines!

17 AUG 2017 (01:46 UTC-07 Tango 06)  26 Mordad 1396/24 Dhu l-Qa’da 1438/26 Wu-Shen 4715

“It’s likely that these engines came from Ukraine, probably illicitly. The big question is how many they have and whether the Ukrainians are helping them now. I’m very worried.”-Michael Elleman, International Institute for Strategic Studies

It’s been revealed that the U.S.-NATO puppet government of Ukraine might have supplied the engines for the latest Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, aka North Korea) ballistic missile design.

Two days after a New York Times story officials with the Ukrainian government run missile company Yuzhmash admitted the engines looked a lot like their own RD-250 design.  Some news reports say Ukrainian space agency director Yurii Radchenko admitted the North Korean Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) was powered by the RD-250.

Yuzhmash used to make money selling engines to Russia, but that stopped after the Obama regime led coup in 2014.  It’s suspected the financially struggling state run company is making money on the ‘black market’.

This is not the first time a DPRK ICBM was discovered to have parts made by NATO allies or even the United States.  In 2014, unnamed South Korean government sources revealed that a recovered North Korean missile had electronics that were made in Europe and the United States!  The missile was recovered in 2012.
