On 01 January 2017, the Obama regime deployed about 7-hundred personnel from the 1st Battalion, 153rd Infantry Regiment, 39th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Arkansas National Guard. They were sent to the oil rich Horn of Africa region.
They will be part of the U.S. AfriCom occupation of Africa under the guise of the legally undeclared War on Terror (U.S. Congress never declared war, the last time that happened was January 1942 a full month after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor).

“A remarkable increase in the rate of M 3 and greater earthquakes is currently in progress in the U.S. midcontinent. The average number of M >= 3 earthquakes/year increased starting in 2001, culminating in a six-fold increase over 20th century levels in 2011.”-USGS study, Are Seismicity Rate Changes in the Midcontinent Natural or Manmade?
Around the beginning of January 2012, officials from the U.S. Geological Survey testified to Ohio state officials, that the fracking going on in their state was the cause of a sudden string of earthquakes.
In July 2011, the state of Arkansas banned fracking for the same reasons.
Now a new study by USGS geologists, published by Seismological Society of America (SSA), confirms that “…the seismicity rate changes described here are almost certainly manmade…”, due to “…oil and gas production.”
The study will be discussed in more detail at a meeting from April 17-19.
USGS scientists point out that the area of increased quake activity is not normal for that part of the United States: “A naturally-occurring rate change of this magnitude is unprecedented outside of volcanic settings or in the absence of a main shock, of which there were neither in this region.”
The abstract details of the study also say: “The modest increase that began in 2001 is due to increased seismicity in the coal bed methane field of the Raton Basin along the Colorado-New Mexico border west of Trinidad, CO. The acceleration in activity that began in 2009 appears to involve a combination of source regions of oil and gas production, including the Guy, Arkansas region, and in central and southern Oklahoma.”
But this is not the only recent study published by the SSA to link oil production with earthquakes. Another report linked the April 2010 Alice, Texas earthquake to oil production in the Stratton field: “We conclude it is plausible, although not proven definitively, that production in the Stratton field contributed to the occurrence of the 2010 Alice earthquake and an earlier similar earthquake that occurred on 24 March 1997.”
So far most of the quakes are taking place in areas that don’t normally have much seismic activity, but California has plenty of earthquakes, and there’s a lot of oil and gas drilling, including fracking, going on there!
“On the one hand, the Division [California agency regulating petroleum industry] remains in denial about fracking for oil. On the other hand, they ask for and receive funding to regulate it and then don’t do it, and have no plans to do it [‘it’ as in ‘regulate’].”-Bill Allayaud, Environmental Working Group
“The earthquakes will trickle on as a kind of a cascading process once you’ve caused them to occur. This one year of pumping is a pulse that has been pushed into the ground, and it’s going to be spreading out for at least a year.”-John Armbruster, Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
On New Year’s Eve, Ohio had a 4.0 quake. It’s part of many quakes the state has suffered since March 2011. Now state lawmakers are banning the energy industry’s practice of Fracking.
Energy companies inject chemically heavy water, under extreme pressures, deep into the ground. It releases natural gas from shale. The gas is used mainly for the oil industry’s hydrogen cracking process, which makes fuels cleaner burning.
For a long time it’s been claimed that fracking pollutes underground water sources, but the industry has successfully fought off such claims. Another claim is that it could cause earthquakes.
Now, seismologists with the U.S. Geological Survey have testified to Ohio officials that the state’s unusual quake activity is directly related to fracking wastewater injection.
In July, the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission banned fracking wastewater injection, because of increased earthquake activity.
Energy companies doing the fracking are taking their wastewater and injecting it deep into underground sand deposits, to get rid of it. Scientists say the problem is that the companies have overshot the underground sand beds, and are basically pressurizing fault lines.
“If it is fireworks, why was last year the first year it has ever happened? It is something else.”[email protected]
For the second New Year’s Eve in a row, blackbirds have fallen dead from the sky in Beebe, Arkansas.
Last year the mass death of birds were blamed on fireworks. But this year the local police banned fireworks use on New Year’s Eve, and yet they’re still blaming fireworks for the new deaths.
Here’s the problem with blaming fireworks: Much more fireworks are used around July 4, than on New Year’s Eve, yet no mass die off of birds around July 4??? Also, as one commenter pointed out, why hasn’t it happened more often?
One commenter on a local Arkansas news site said his magnetic compass went crazy New Year’s Eve: “fire works going off ALL night and all day – no problems! There were more 500 LIVE ones in our yard this morning. BUT when the birds started dying, I had my compass out – it went crazy – spinning and unable to find north – it did this at two different times tonight – so fireworks messed up the compass??? It is not the fireworks!”-Al
There are also reports that local TV weather personnel said weather radar returns showed a large mass over Beebe, Arkansas, about the time the birds fell out of the sky.
“Consumers are going to pay more because we’re going to have less beef. Fewer cows, calves, less beef production and increasing [demand for] exports.”-David Anderson, Texas AgriLife Extension Service
Texas is officially suffering its worst drought ever! The decline in cows just more proof.
Texas is now seeing the biggest drop in cattle since the U.S. Great Depression in 1930s. This year they lost more than 600,000 cattle. Not all to death directly caused by drought, or early slaughter, some were moved out of state to, literally, greener pastures.
It’s not just Texas, but Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana and Arkansas also saw an increase in loss of cattle due to drought.
This past year beef prices for U.S. consumers went up 9%. The USDA predicts another 5.5% increase for 2012.
