Special Las Vegas shooting edition F-16 & F-15

For some odd reason the U.S. Air Force felt compelled to give one of their F-16s, and an F-15, a special paint job to ‘honor’ those people killed or wounded during the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting.  The Vegas Strong F-16 and F-15 will be on display at the Nellis AFB Air and Space Exposition, November 11-12.

MAFFS : Wildfire season 2018 going to be a hot one!

10 September 2016 (15:32 UTC-07 Tango 01) 20 Shahrivar 1395/07 Dhu I-Hijja 1437/10 Ding-You 4714

Apparently the U.S. Forest Service and the Department of Defense (DoD) think the 2018 fire season is gonna’ be big because they’ve just added another MAFFS C-130 firefighting unit to their inventory.

Nevada National Guard 152 Airlift Wing’s brand new MAFFS C-130H

MAFFS stands for Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System.  The Forest Service owns the MAFFS, the DoD (through state militias) provides the C-130s and personnel to operate it.

Currently there are three MAFFS units operated by the state militias of California, North Carolina and Wyoming, and one MAFFS Air Force Reserve unit out of Colorado.  Since early August MAFFS have already flown 142 firefighting missions, dropping more than 3.5-million pounds (1.6-million kilos) of fire-retardant in Idaho, Nevada and Oregon.   Nevada is about to become the home for a fifth MAFFS unit.

Nevada’s 152 AW High Rollers will be used to augment the units from Colorado and Wyoming, and will be based in Reno.  While MAFFS fly on missions across the country, the U.S. Forest Service wanted a new MAFFS unit whose home base is in the fire prone Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.

This year’s official fire season began MAFFS on-job-training for crews of the High Rollers: “The actual drops have been challenging and exhilarating. It’s a great feeling to see your immediate results whether we are dropping a protective line of retardant between the fire and someone’s property or dropping ‘mud’ directly on flames leaping from the tops of trees in an effort to slow the fire’s progress.”-Lietenant Colonel Tony Machabee, first member of the High Rollers to co-pilot a MAFFS mission

The U.S. Forest Service wants the new 152 AW MAFFS unit ready to launch for the 2018 wildfire season.  The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences predicts that by 2050 the official U.S. wildfire season will be three weeks longer, and for several years now the Pacific Northwest has been dealing with major fires in the official off-season.

Despite a busy wildfire season, Oregon based helicopter fire bomber operator Erickson Air Crane laid off 1-hundred people! Company administrators admitted that despite years of busy wildfire seasons they’re burned by massive debt to Wells Fargo (the evil bank owned by ‘christian’ agnostic Warren Buffett).

U.S. Civil War: Idaho & Nevada militias invade Oregon after federal judge imposes Double Jeopardy on Ranchers!

“…we have had enough of this tyranny and you are going to leave us alone, it will not change. This is the power of America, right here. … This could be a hope that spreads through the whole United States. Everybody’s looking for this hope, because the government has beat us and oppressed us and took everything from us, and will not stop until you tell them, ‘No!”Blaine Cooper, protestor

A federal fascist court judge ordered a father and son rancher team back to federal prison after they had already served their time! As a result hundreds of militia personnel and protestors from Idaho, Utah, Nevada and several other states descended upon Burns, Oregon.

“We’re here to support the Hammond family and the community.”– Brandon Curitss, Idaho chapter of III Percent Patriots 

In 2012 Dwight Lincoln Hammond Junior and his son Steven Dwight Hammond were convicted of illegally setting fires on grazing land they had leased from the federal Bureau of Land Management.  They claimed it was to rid the land of invasive plants (that the cows refuse to eat) and to reduce the potential for wildfires.  However, in the case of a 2001 wildfire witnesses say the Hammonds started the fire with malicious intent, and were illegally hunting deer.  (it must be noted that even local Oregonian news sources still refer to the 2001 ‘arson’ as a “prescribed burn”)

The Hammonds served a maximum prison sentence of one year (reports are confusing, it seems Dwight served three months and Steven served one year, yet even local TV news reporters contradict their own text version of their report by saying on video they both served 90 days?), but federal judge Ann Aiken declare their sentences too lenient stating the federal minimum for arson on federal land is five years and ordered them back into a California prison!  The Hammonds claim they will peacefully report for their new prison sentences.

However, the case has upset many ranchers and farmers throughout the western U.S., with at least two militia groups saying enough is enough: “We’ve had the same problems in Utah and Nevada.”-Shannon Cox, protestor from Utah

Some protestors conducted a peaceful march through the town of Burns, stopping to throw pennies at the Sheriff’s office while chanting “Sell-out, sell-out!”   Openly armed protestors seized the federal Malheur National Wildlife Refuge HQ, telling local news media  “This will become a base place for patriots from all over the country to come and be housed here, and we’re planning on staying here for several years.”

U.S. Civil War: Husband & wife declare revolution in Las Vegas! 5 dead! Typical; the ‘facts’ keep changing!

09 June 2014 (06:59 UTC-07 Tango)/10 Sha’ban 1435/19 Khordad 1393/12 Geng Wu 4712

On Sunday, in the U.S. state of Nevada, a husband and wife walked into a pizza joint, declared a revolution, then shot and killed two cops on their lunch break.  Witnesses say the cops never saw it coming, however, the Sheriff’s Department now says one of the cops fired back.    Some Las Vegas news sources say the dead cops were then draped in Gadsden Flags.

Witnesses also say the revolutionaries then took one of the dead cops’ gun and ammo, then targeted the low income sheeple shoppers at Walmart, killing one unarmed woman (according to initial news media reports).  But wait, guess what?  Now the cops say the person killed at Walmart was actually an armed man who died attempting to protect others”!   Why does the info always radically change in these shootings?

A pathetic Christian witness exclaimed “I’ll never leave church early again!”, as if that had something to do with the shootings!

Police converged on the Walmart and a gun battle followed.

According to police, the battle ended when “…it appears the female suspect shot the male suspect, then took her own life.”-Doug Gillespe, Sheriff

Overnight police evacuated and locked down the apartment complex where the husband and wife revolutionaries lived.  It’s starting to sound like these two revolutionaries were high on prescription drugs.  Several neighbors said the couple like to dress up like the Joker, Harely Quinn and Slenderman.

World War 3, Martial Law U.S. Front: ebay, Dell, HP, federal & state governments build World’s largest data collection spy center system in Utah! Real time data stream monitoring!

16 October 2013 (11:39 UTC-07 Tango)/11 Dhu’l-Hijja 1434/24 Mehr 1391/12 Ren-Xu (9th month) 4711

The United States government and ebay have things in common: They both partner to collect your personal data, and their major collection centers are based in the Mormon dominated state of Utah.  But ebay has built the World’s first energy independent collection center, according to ebay itself and Bloom Energy.

Don’t forget ebay has a data center in Arizona called Project Mercury.  In Las Vegas, Nevada, there is what’s being called the largest privately run data collection center in the World.  It’s operated by a company called Switch.  It’s users are “ebay, Google, Sony, Zappos, HP, Cisco, Activision, Intuit, University of Phoenix, Yahoo, MySpace, eHarmony, Sony or Disney, or any of those guys who have games on the internet.”-Rob Roy, Switch

Switch continues to expand its Las Vegas operations and will eventually have 2.2 million square feet (670560 square meters) of data center space (currently they’re just over 400-thousand square feet)!  The state of Nevada was influenced to give the green light to data collection centers by a report from Brookings Mountain West.  A former executive of Switch has started his own data collection company called Cobalt.

ebay’s Topaz data stealing center (created with help from Dell and Hewlett Packard) in Utah is located in South Jordan (just south of Salt Lake City).  It’s not new, but the fact that it is now independent of the power grid is.  It’s powered by Bloom Energy’s fuel cells, solar panels, and a heat waste recovery system is also being built for the center, to insure 100% power grid independence.  ebay’s own video presentation about the collection center states the center was built in partnership with federal and state governments!

ebay has also innovated a way that company (government?) officials can watch your data stream in real time.  It’s called Digital Service Efficiency (DSE).  According to Network Computing it appears to the user as “….a dashboard that displays power load, number of users, energy supplied and other measures of IT effectiveness along with the amount of revenue generated per user, cost of employing that user, carbon footprint and other measures of business activity.”

(note that in the above quote, as a “user” of ebay you are considered an ’employee’, not a client)

According to ebay officials, this real time data dashboard (DSE) is intended to increase the number of transactions per kilowatt hour.  ebay also claims that they save millions of dollars in electrical power usage every time they increase the efficiency of their data collection process.

ebay says it will share any non-specific company DSE techologies with other companies, that are part of a consortium known as The Green Grid.  The current board members of The Green Grid are AMD, Cisco, Dell, EMC2, Emerson, Google, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft and Schneider.

By the way, ebay’s new massive data collection center is just north of the federal government’s massive data collection center, located on the Utah Army National Guard’s Camp Williams.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that ebay got a $38.2 million tax break from Utah, for its new customer service center in Draper!   (as a ebay user I say Utah taxpayers got ripped!)

According to ebay, their motivation to build massive data storage centers is to reduce “environmental impacts”!  Hey, if you weren’t collecting individual’s data you wouldn’t need data centers at all!  Why don’t you try that for saving the environment?

(the correct official new spelling for ebay is all lower case.  why can’t you mainstreamer newsies get it right?)

Government Incompetence & United Police States of America: Las Vegas cops shoot Gulf War veteran, who lost his house, in the back of the head, 7 times. Veteran’s wife blames PTSD and the VA. VA is ending needed treament for veterans

“100%. They are 100% responsible for what they did to my husband. They killed my husband.”-Rondha Gibson, blaming the Veterans Administration for her husband’s death because they took him off his PTSD meds and cancelled his benefits

On December 12 Las Vegas police shot and killed a 1991 Persian Gulf War veteran.  They shot him seven times in the back of the head as he sat in his car.

According to newly released police report, cops responded to claims of an attempted burglary.  Apartment residents said two men tried to break into an apartment, failed and then took off in a white Cadillac. As the cops were writing down the info, a white Cadillac pulled into the apartment parking lot.

The cops surrounded the car, the driver apparently panicked a tried to get away but ran into a parked police car.  For 30 minutes the cops yelled at him to get out of the car.  They decided to shoot a bean bag to break a window, and then spray riot control gas into the car.  For some reason another cop grabbed a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle.  When the one cop fired the bean bag round, the cop with the AR-15 fired also.  The reason has yet to be revealed.

The cop with the AR-15 fired seven times into the back of the war veteran’s head.  The AR-15 is a semi-automatic version of the automatic military M16.  What that means is that the cop had to pull the trigger seven times to fire seven rounds!

Police officials are investigating why the cop with the AR-15 fired seven rounds off, when that was obviously not part of the plan to get the veteran out of his car.

By the way, the reason why the veteran pulled into the apartment parking lot was because he lived there!  He and his wife moved in after losing their house!  There are plenty of white Cadillacs in Las Vegas, dumb cops!

It turns out the Gulf War veteran, Stanley Gibson, had lost his Veterans benefits, was taken off his PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) meds, and then lost his house!  A social worker who works with veterans blames the Veterans Administration for what happened: “They’re just trying to get away with the minimal that they can, and if they dance you around the block enough you’ll go away.”-Marsha Oritt, social worker

Gibson and his wife had fought the gradual reductions in his benefits for years, but the VA won out.  Rhonda Gibson says the VA totally blew them off: “If they had just listened to the man, listened to me and stopped canceling his appointments and make sure he had his medications on time, we would have been ok.”

Social worker Marsha Oritt says the VA has made the Gibson’s life a living hell: “It was just a constant nightmare for them both. Lots of tears. Lots of frustration. Lots of upset.”

What Economic Recovery? U.S. Home foreclosures on their way back up, Idaho makes top ten list (again)

After several months of what looked like a downward trend in home foreclosures, October had a 7% increase from the month before.

The reason for what looked like a downward trend was because the big banks and mortgage companies had been holding back, mainly due to red tape and just too many cases to go after: “The October foreclosure numbers continue to show strong signs that foreclosure activity is coming out of the rain delay we’ve been in for the past year as lenders corrected foreclosure paperwork and processing problems.”-James Saccacio, RealtyTrac

Nevada is still the number one state for foreclosures, although Las Vegas dropped to 5th place for cities.  Stockton, California, is now the number city in the U.S. for foreclosures.

Nevada, California, Arizona, Florida and Michigan are the top five losing states, making up 53% of the country’s home foreclosures.

The next five most losing states are Georgia, Illinois, Idaho, Oregon and Colorado.

 

What Economic Recovery? S & P’s downgrades Nevada & New Jersey, Idaho gets upgrade, more to come in November

“In our opinion, the longer-term deficit reduction framework adopted as part of the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA) could undermine the already fragile economic recovery and complicate aspects of state and local government fiscal management.”-Gabriel Petek, S&P’s

Standard & Poor’s has already downgraded the credit rating of Nevada, New Jersey and several U.S. counties, for 2011.

Many counties and cities got super downgrades, meaning credit rankings of triple B, or less.  S&P’s says many local governments are in very bad shape fiscally.

Six states were actually upgraded. They are Idaho, Nebraska, Wyoming, Oregon, South Dakota and Louisiana.  But only Wyoming and Nebraska made the triple A rating.

In a statement issued by S&P’s on August 18, they indicate more downgrades for state and local governments are coming.  It’s all based on state budget plans, and what happens with the Federal Debt Limit Deal (Budget Control Act of 2011).

S&P’s will make more credit rating decisions in November.
