Idaho Militia turns information into lethal weapon!

“Information is a weapon the brigade yields. We’re training Soldiers on their mission command weapons systems. We’re making information more lethal.”-Chief Warrant-3 Jerred Edgar, 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team

At the OTA (Orchard Training Area, aka Orchard Combat Training Center), February 2018

Idaho’s Army National Guard signal personnel spent the early part of February learning how to kill using information.  Actually, the 116th Cavalry Brigade (Snake River) has signal corps personnel spread across four northwestern states, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Oregon.

Typically a “Signal Corps develops, tests, provides, and manages communications and information systems”, but this year the Idaho based Snake River militia decided to weaponize the information they gather in an exercise they called Signal Gunnery: “We wanted to create a process that trains crews in a manner similar to tank gunnery to create shared understanding with commanders.”-CW3 Jerred Edgar

Can you see me now?

The week long Signal Gunnery brought at least 60 personnel from four states together at Orchard Training Area, south of Boise.  It’s hoped this weaponizing-info-exercise becomes a annual event.


Seven Facts explain why Flu Vaccines fail!

20 OCT 2017 (01:34 UTC-07 Tango 06) 28 Mehr 1396/29 Muharram 1439/01 Geng-Xu (9th month) 4715

Recently the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admitted that traditional flu injections have a 37% failure rate (63% effective), and a nearly 100% failure rate for spray vaccines!  Keep in mind that there is not a mandatory health tracking/reporting system in the U.S.  The data the CDC gets is voluntary, based on each state’s own government health department’s policies.  During the 2013-14 H1N1 pandemic I discovered that some states, like Oregon, did not track influenza cases.  This means the vaccine failure rate could actually be much higher in the U.S., than what has been voluntarily reported!

In the 2013-14 influenza season individuals were reporting that relatives were dying from H1N1 despite getting vaccinated for it: “That’s the kicker of the whole thing. She had the flu shot, we all did! Pamela Giusti, sister of 49 years old Massachusetts woman who died in February 2014

(The U.S. CDC and Food & Drug Administration run a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  It’s not a way of testing a vaccine before approval for use, it relies on individuals to report health problems after vaccination and most people don’t even know about VAERS.)

Mexico is a much better example of flu-shot-failure because Mexico has a socialized healthcare system (100% government-taxpayer funded) and vaccinations are supposedly mandatory.  By February 2014, 20-million Mexicans had been vaccinated for H1N1, and other flus, yet by that same month 390 people had died specifically from H1N1 (a total of 420 people dying), and the number of new infections were in the thousands every week!  

Mandatory vaccinations in Mexico fail to prevent thousands of infections and hundreds of deaths every year!

Even as recently as 2016, hundreds of Mexicans still died from influenza despite massive yearly flu vaccination campaigns by the government: “….the influenza season 2016-2017 reported 5,691 confirmed cases and 489 Mexican deaths.”  

Fact 1: Influenza viruses are among the fastest evolving viruses on the planet.  This means that by the time a vaccine is developed for a specific flu variant it could change enough to render the vaccine useless.   During the 2013-14 flu H1N1 pandemic in India, doctor Kutikuppala Surya Rao revealed “…swine flu viruses are undergoing changes at the genome level (ribo-nucleic acid) which is why the available vaccines, that are in use since 2009will not be effective against the virus.”

Now realize that despite years of vaccinating for H1N1, this year British empire’s (Commonwealth of Nations) India is on track for an H1N1 epidemic.  So far this flu season, health officials in Rajasthan state report that 1-out-of-3 flu tests are positive for H1N1.  Currently 33.9% of Rajasthan flu infections are H1N1, and 224 people have died!

Back to Mexico. Already this year 60 people have died in Mexico from H1N1, despite the government run vaccination program.  Fadela Chaib, with the United Nations World Health Organization (UN-WHO), said The virus is being described in the United States as a new subtype of A/H1N1. Mexico so far hasn’t said anything about the virus, what type of virus it is.”  This means the current vaccine for H1N1 won’t work.

The sparsely populated U.S. state of Montana is already voluntarily reporting that more than 30 people are sick with influenza, 12 hospitalized, unusual for so early in this year’s flu season.  Here in Idaho, one person has already died from influenza.  The man from the town of Hayden is the first person in the U.S. to die from flu this 2017-18 season.   So far no word on which flu variant (strain) the man died of.  It should also be noted that the 2016-17 flu season was the deadliest for the rural state of Idaho, 72 people died compared to the yearly average of 23.   There is currently a push to get residents to voluntarily get vaccinated, despite the fact that there is plenty of proof out of Australia that this year’s vaccines are no good.

Fact 2:  Vaccines are based on the previous flu season’s strains, and are issued based on ‘scientific guesstimation’ on what will be the dominant strains during the new flu season.  In Australia, this ‘scientific guesstimation’ is at fault for creating a 156% increase in cases of ‘Horror Flu’.  Doctors are reporting the vaccinations are having no effect, even the UN-WHO said this year’s vaccines are “suboptimal”Despite that fact, taxpayer funded arrogant Aussie health czars are instead blaming the Horror Flu epidemic on unvaccinated children, calling them Super Spreaders!

Fact 3: Doctors can’t cure a viral infection, only your body can do that, the best doctors can do is treat the SYMPTOMS of the infection.  Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital reported in 2014 that anti-viral treatments won’t help certain people: “…elevated nasal levels of the cytokines MCP-3 and interferon alpha 2 (IFNa2) and elevated blood levels of interleukin 10 (IL-10) at diagnosis predicted more severe symptoms later. Increased blood levels of IL-10 and MCP-3, as well as interleukin-6, at diagnosis predicted hospitalization later. MCP-3 and IFNa2 promote inflammation. IL-10 suppresses inflammation. Elevated IL-10 levels often signal that the body is trying to shut down the inflammatory response.”Researchers Discover Immune Signature That Predicts Poor Outcome in Influenza Patients

Despite this scientific fact, ignorant health czars around the world are still telling people to get ‘medication’ at hospitals if they get sick: “…there are several reports of flu going around and one of them is swine flu but it is being treated and if people have these symptoms they should go to health facility to get the necessary medication.”-Mark van der Heever, Western Cape Health Department, British empire’s (Commonwealth of Nations) South Africa

I include this anti-viral fact in with vaccines because many people seem to think vaccines are a form of treatment for viral infections.  They are not, they’re an attempt to prevent infection.  Recently a woman in the British empire’s United Kingdom wrote an opinion piece in which she ignorantly stated “I realised the safest way to live is to stay out of hospital or avoid intervention if you possibly can….     Vaccinating against a flu you haven’t caught yet seems to be the opposite of this.”   Which brings us to the next Fact.

Fact 4: If you’re already sick, even if not with flu but something else, vaccinations don’t work!  Having a compromised immune system renders the intent of vaccinations inert.  Studies continue to show that if you’re already dealing with something that’s stressing your immune system, your immune system can’t adequately respond to the vaccine.  What I find interesting is how shocked pro-vaccine doctors are when these studies come out.

This year doctors at Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital were shocked to learn from their own study that flu vaccines have almost no effect on children fighting cancer.  

This also questions the practice of putting multiple vaccines into one shot.  There are also efforts to create a single shot where every vaccine (not just flu) is crammed into it.  If your immune system can’t handle vaccinations while already fighting off infection, then how can it handle dozens of vaccinations at one time?

Fact 5: Vaccines are fragile, even slight temperature changes during storage can render them useless, or even make them toxic.  At the beginning of 2017 there were reports from around the world of people dying after getting vaccinations.  Those reports are true, but UN-WHO czars blamed it on improper storage and handling of the vaccines by supposedly trained health workers. 

In 2015 the deaths of babies, and hospitalization of 29 people, in mandatory vaccine Chiapas, Mexico, was blamed on improper storage of vaccines.   I find it strange that such improper storage of vaccines is happening more and more, so-much-so that many healthcare companies are racing to create ‘foolproof’ storage systems.

Fact 6: Vaccines are made with many ingredients, some of which people are allergic to.   Besides being allowed to use trace amounts of toxic metals to make vaccines, most are made with chicken eggs and people allergic to chicken eggs should avoid those vaccines.  However, In 2016 the U.S. CDC advised that people with egg allergies can get vaccinated if “…under the supervision of any health care provider who is able to recognize and manage severe allergic conditions.”   As a person who clinically died in the 1970s due to an allergic reaction to a medication administered by an incompetent military doctor at the U.S. Embassy hospital in Tehran, Iran, (revived by a competent military doctor who realized what happened) I say to the CDC “Fuck you, I’m not willing to take that chance!”

Allergies bring up another point, many vaccine reactions are being blamed on a person’s genetic disposition.  Yes, healthcare czars are now blaming adverse vaccine reactions on your DNA, not on the vaccine!  Recently, in the British empire’s United Kingdom, yet another teenaged girl suffered paralysis after getting the HPV vaccine.  In fact, HPV vaccine is associated with the onset of as many as 45 medical conditions.  However, after a study in Denmark the authoritarian ‘experts’ are now blaming it on undiagnosed pre-existing medical conditions, which takes us back to Fact 3, compromised immune systems.

Fact 7:  It takes about two weeks for your body to adequately respond to a vaccine, and some vaccines require more than one application.  During the response time you can still get infected, which could explain why so many people report getting sick right after getting the shot, and if you do get sick after getting the shot you just wasted your time, and in many cases here in the United States where most vaccines are not ‘free’ you just wasted your money.  There are several vaccines against other diseases that require multiple applications over a specific period of time, screw that up and they won’t work.  Then there’s the data (or lack of data) that show some vaccines that were once thought to be good for life, are not: “…..we don’t know how long protection really lasts; we are just guessing.  There are no long-term studies proving that vaccines are effective.  Independent studies show far less effectiveness than government position papers.ModernAlternativeHealth

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


Montana, Oregon & Washington National Guard deploy to fight wildfires!

“The western fires are not stopping. They’re just getting bigger.”-James Casaus, Incident Commander

“If we don’t start managing our forests, the forests are going to start managing us. The fires burning across Montana are a catastrophe, and we need all available resources to combat this threat.”-Steve Daines, senator for Montana

On 13 SEP 2017, Montana’s Air National Guard deployed to fight at least 21 wildfires in The Treasure State.

Montana has so far spent $50-million USD in state taxpayer funding fighting fires!

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.

C-130J MAFFS 4, Channel Islands, California

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.

Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest stradles California and Nevada

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.

C-130H MAFFS 8, out of North Carolina

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).

Fracking Food Crisis: Idaho, Oregon, Washington hit by contaminated water, coincides with oil industry Fracking!

10 April 2016 (15:21 UTC-07 Tango 01) 22 Farvardin 1395/02 Rajab 1437/04 Ren-Chen 4714

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency revealed that ever since oil industry Fracking ops have been allowed to take place in the Pacific northwest (about 2004) water quality has suffered.  More than 60 public water sources in Idaho, Oregon and Washington have exceeded federal safe levels of lead contamination in the past three years!

The majority of contaminated water systems are in Oregon with 37, followed by Idaho with 22.  Washington has eight contaminated systems.

The majority of those water sources supply local grade schools.  Some Oregon school administrators admitted they were informed of the lead contamination in 2013, and have been buying bottled water ever since.   In Idaho, several school directors blamed lead contamination on old plumbing and claim that lead levels went down after the plumbing was replaced.  In Washington the first reported case of lead contamination was at the State Patrol Academy, in 2012.  Directors say they’ve been on bottled water since then, but are working to hook up to ‘city’ supplied water.

Most of the contaminated water sources involve systems using well water.  Across the U.S. the EPA found at least 1-thousand 4-hundred public water systems contaminated with lead, affecting 3.6-million people!

I find it interesting that here in Idaho the lead contamination (even though blamed on old plumbing) begins just after ‘test Fracking’ began in 2011.  In 2012 Gem State ‘law makers’ officially allowed Fracking, and also banned city and county governments from banning Fracking!  Isn’t it possible the chemicals (solvents) used in Fracking caused the built up contaminants in the old plumbing to come loose?  Current unconfirmed reports indicate Fracking ops have halted.

In Oregon there are reports that Fracking stopped by 2015.  Fracking for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) began as early as 2004.  Apparently Fracking for LNG in Washington was supposed to start in 2012, however, recent reports say no Fracking is taking place. It is difficult to find reliable sources of public info on Fracking because the industry, and even state governments, are tight lipped about the controversial operation.
