Continued 'Red Light' Sightings Over North-Central New Jersey

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Once again, mysterious red lights in the sky have residents in north-central New Jersey scratching their heads.

It's the third time in about a month that Morris County residents have reported seeing the lights.

Police in Morris Plains, Morris Township, Hanover and Morristown each reported getting a few calls from residents last night night.

Original Video - More videos at TinyPic

The callers say they saw as many as 10 red lights floating in the sky, moving in unison and in the same direction as the wind from about 8:45 p.m. to 9 p.m.

No one knows where the lights are coming from, but a Michigan-based maker of Sky Lanterns says it could be his product. The lanterns have balloons and wax-infused cloth and are set aloft during celebrations.

Star Wars over America?

Was a battle in outer space leaving space debris falling over the skies of the USA last weekend?

(NECN: Dallas, TX) - The Federal Aviation Administration believes a fireball that streaked across the sky in Texas wasn't a UFO or space junk. Experts say it was a meteor about the size of a pickup truck with the consistency of a chunk of concrete.

The fireball was seen across a wide stretch of the state Sunday morning.

The FAA had said during the weekend that the fireball possibly was caused by falling debris from the satellites.

Despite its large size, if any of the object survived the fiery descent through the atmosphere, experts say it would be smaller than a fist.

It's the stuff of legends: an elite secret society that includes what would become some of the most powerful men of the 20th century allegedly invading the grave of an Apache chief to steal his skull for fraternal rituals. It's also the stuff of a new lawsuit filed Tuesday by descendents of that Apache chief. On the 100th anniversary of the death of Geronimo, 20 of his blood relatives have asked the courts to force Yale University and the school's secret organization, Skull and Bones, to release his remains for return to his native land and a proper burial. The lawsuit also names President Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Army Secretary Pete Geren as defendants because they are responsible for maintaining Geronimo's remains on a U.S. Army base in Oklahoma, the group said. "I believe it's a good cause because indigenous people over the century have been annihilated, removed from their homeland," said Geronimo's great grandson, Harlyn Geronimo, at a press conference in Washington, D.C.

US Military Preparing Ordo ab Chao -- “Violent, Strategic Dislocation Inside United States From Economic Collapse”

We have a remarkable ability to create our own monsters. A few decades of meddling in the Middle East with our Israeli doppelgänger and we get Hezbollah, Hamas, al-Qaida, the Iraqi resistance movement and a resurgent Taliban. Now we trash the world economy and destroy the ecosystem and sit back to watch our handiwork. Hints of our brave new world seeped out Thursday when Washington’s new director of national intelligence, retired Adm. Dennis Blair, testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He warned that the deepening economic crisis posed perhaps our gravest threat to stability and national security. It could trigger, he said, a return to the “violent extremism” of the 1920s and 1930s. It turns out that Wall Street, rather than Islamic jihad, has produced our most dangerous terrorists. You wouldn’t know this from the Obama administration, which seems hellbent on draining the blood out of the body politic and transfusing it into the corpse of our financial system. But by the time Barack Obama is done all we will be left with is a corpse—a corpse and no blood. And then what? We will see accelerated plant and retail closures, inflation, an epidemic of bankruptcies, new rounds of foreclosures, bread lines, unemployment surpassing the levels of the Great Depression and, as Blair fears, social upheaval (RNN NOTE: For those who may not know, "Ordo ab Chao" is from Ancient Craft Masonry and is a reference to the doctrine of "Order out of Chaos."), DC - Feb 16, 2009

Hidden Spy Camera & Mic Found Inside Digital TV Box
Reason for forced digital switchover in US and UK: Government and industry watching us to build profiles, launch invasive advertising
Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
A popular video circulating on You Tube shows the discovery of a spy camera and a microphone hidden inside a digital TV converter box. Such devices are part of a government and industry surveillance program that is undoubtedly connected to the forced digital TV switchover being rolled out in the UK and US.

Federal, state and local governments are about to pour tens of billions of dollars into the nation's infrastructure. The big question: Will we simply spend the money the way we've been doing for decades -- on more concrete and steel? Or will we use it to make our roads, bridges and other assets much more intelligent? Imagine highways that alert motorists of a traffic jam before it forms. Or bridges that report when they're at risk of collapse. Or an electric grid that fixes itself when blackouts hit. This vision -- known as "smart" infrastructure -- promises to make the nation more productive and competitive, while helping the environment and saving lives. Not to mention saving money by making what we've got work better and break down less often. But fail to upgrade, advocates warn, and the country may be locked into the old way of building for decades to come. "The goal is not just funding projects for short-term job gains," says Paul Feenstra, vice president of government affairs at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, a group that promotes smart-road technologies. "It should be to create systems that are intelligent and improve productivity in the long run."


I really don't know what to say about this folks!!! Is it God calling to the Russians to repent and come back to Him ? or is it haarp and bluebeam !!! Come to Christ now !! Pray always and don't be deceived !!!

Daily Readings for Monday Feb 16, 2009
Reading 1, Gn 4:1-15, 25
1 The man had intercourse with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain. 'I have acquired a man with the help of Yahweh,' she said.
2 She gave birth to a second child, Abel, the brother of Cain. Now Abel became a shepherd and kept flocks, while Cain tilled the soil.
3 Time passed and Cain brought some of the produce of the soil as an offering for Yahweh,
4 while Abel for his part brought the first-born of his flock and some of their fat as well. Yahweh looked with favour on Abel and his offering.
5 But he did not look with favour on Cain and his offering, and Cain was very angry and downcast.
6 Yahweh asked Cain, 'Why are you angry and downcast?
7 If you are doing right, surely you ought to hold your head high! But if you are not doing right, Sin is crouching at the door hungry to get you. You can still master him.'
8 Cain said to his brother Abel, 'Let us go out'; and while they were in the open country, Cain set on his brother Abel and killed him.
9 Yahweh asked Cain, 'Where is your brother Abel?' 'I do not know,' he replied. 'Am I my brother's guardian?'
10 'What have you done?' Yahweh asked. 'Listen! Your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground.
11 Now be cursed and banned from the ground that has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood at your hands.
12 When you till the ground it will no longer yield up its strength to you. A restless wanderer you will be on earth.'
13 Cain then said to Yahweh, 'My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14 Look, today you drive me from the surface of the earth. I must hide from you, and be a restless wanderer on earth. Why, whoever comes across me will kill me!'
15 'Very well, then,' Yahweh replied, 'whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.' So Yahweh put a mark on Cain, so that no one coming across him would kill him.
25 Adam had intercourse with his wife, and she gave birth to a son whom she named Seth, 'because God has granted me other offspring', she said, 'in place of Abel, since Cain has killed him.'

Gospel, Mk 8:11-13
11 The Pharisees came up and started a discussion with him; they demanded of him a sign from heaven, to put him to the test.
12 And with a profound sigh he said, 'Why does this generation demand a sign? In truth I tell you, no sign shall be given to this generation.'
13 And, leaving them again, he re-embarked and went away to the other side.

Highway Robbery

D o w n s i z e r - D i s p a t c h
Quote of the Day: "The idea that people lose their property but are never charged and never get it back, that's theft as far as I'm concerned." -- Texas State Senator John Whitmire

Subject: Highway Robbery
If you happen to travel through east Texas, avoid Tenaha, especially if you're African American. The Tenaha police may stop you and rob you, without even charging you with a crime. They even took $4,000 from a great-grandmother.
Tenaha, a town of 1,000, has used its robbery proceeds to build a new police station, and buy a second police car to extend its legal crime wave. But perhaps it's unfair to single out Tenaha. Police departments all over America are doing the same thing, committing not only robbery, but also acts of terrorism.
Apparently, no one is safe. Just ask Cheye Calvo, the Mayor of Berwyn Heights, Maryland . . .
Radley Balko reports that the use of SWAT teams and no-knock raids has soared, even when there's no evidence that a targeted home poses any threat. These aggressive raids allow police to surprise the suspect and find as much valuable property to seize as quickly as possible.
Law enforcement agencies then auction off this property and spend the money on themselves, even when the victims they robbed are never convicted of any crime. Instead, the victims must prove that they are NOT guilty of a crime.
Proving a negative is almost impossible. That's why innocence is presumed in free societies, and the state bears the burden of proving guilt. Civil asset forfeiture turn this principle on its head. It even forces victims to prove that their property was never used in a crime.
This means that most seized property is never returned, even to people who are completely innocent.
The asset forfeiture laws give police a huge incentive to steal as much as possible. They also create a conflict-of-interest. Police make more money seizing the proceeds of drug sales than by preventing drug sales. This contradicts the supposed purpose of drug prohibition.
But it gets worse . . .
The newly-enacted "stimulus" bill includes $4 billion for state and local law enforcement. You will now be funding an expanded wave of police robbery.
You can cut and paste the examples provided above into your personal comments.

Corporate elites seek a 'New world Order'

The story of America, when finally written, will be one of a people struggling to go from rags to riches, and of the few who rose to the top and destroyed the rest. All the rhetoric about a nation of opportunity is merely fiction for most. In order to rise to the highest levels, one's ambition must be greater than the love for our fellow man or country. One has to abandon all ethics, morals and commit to a secular god of greed and power.

Mega-corporations, led by intertwined individuals, define the rules for how nations will act and the amount they must pay. These individuals control the aspiring novices and only allow the most dedicated to rise from the local level. As these youngsters are impregnated with the rules and then show their loyalties to the cause, they may advance.

Importantly, they must be willing to embrace the very essence of "getting ahead" (i.e., complete obedience to economic growth regardless of consequence). It is the amount that one can bring to the coffers that matters, regardless of how it is achieved or whether the result is detrimental to man or his environment. The end, acquiring and amassing wealth, justifies the means.

Blindly, our nation has turned over its leadership to incompetents - or, perhaps more accurately, willing partisans eager to gain both favor of their bosses and financial benefit. By these miscreants, and with help from the mighty nine Black Robes of the Supreme Court, Lincoln's words have been transformed into "of the corporation, by the corporation and for the corporation." We the people have been cast aside and relieved of our constitutional status.

As sunrise broke over New York City on the morning of April 8, 1981, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi — at the time he was known just as Zalman Schachter — stood on the observation deck of the Empire State Building and sounded the shofar. For more than two hours after, Shachter-Shalomi led some 300 mostly young adults in an obscure Jewish ritual known as Birkat Hachamah, or blessing over the sun, a prayer recited once every 28 years when, the Talmud says, the sun reaches the same spot in the firmament as when it was created. According to an account of the service in The New York Times, participants raised their hands in prayer, asked for healing for individuals and the earth, and released 70 balloons. At the conclusion, some worshipers joined in the singing of a Hebrew version of “Let the Sun Shine In” from the rock musical “Hair.” The rite, Shachter-Shalomi told the Times, “helps us renew our relationship with the solar system and increase our awareness of the sun as a source of energy.” Twenty-eight years later, Jews across the denominational spectrum are gearing up again for the observance with a range of planned celebrations, many of them environmentally focused. The sun prayer will be said, as it will several times in the 21st century, on April 8, which this year falls on the eve of Passover.

FORMAL NOTICE OF INTENT by United States ex rel. Paul Andrew Mitchell, Private Attorney General FORMALLY TO DECLARE INSOLVENCY
From: Paul Andrew Mitchell
Subject: FORMAL NOTICE OF INTENT by United States ex rel. Paul Andrew Mitchell, Private Attorney General FORMALLY TO DECLARE INSOLVENCY
Date: Wednesday, February 18, 2009, 8:56 AM


The United States (Federal Government) now appearing ex rel.
Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S., Private Attorney General
before the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, #08-4443, hereby formally declares
its specific intent to intervene in a bankruptcy case now pending before
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Washington,
stemming in large part from House Joint Resolution 192 ("HJR 192") and from
all heretofore concealed actions and decisions by the Executive Administration
of the President Franklin D. Roosevelt during and immediately following
the year 1933 A.D.

It is presently the position of the United States ex rel. Paul Andrew Mitchell supra that
the current indebtedness of the United States to the Federal Reserve Banks, in particular,
cannot be paid and should not be paid, due to the fraudulent origins of that indebtedness

See, for example, the collected Annual Profit and Loss Statements of the
several regional Federal Reserve Banks, with particular emphasis on the interest
received to date by same on all government securities of which those Banks
are presently holders in due course.

Accordingly, the United States ex rel. hereby declares its specific intent to liquidate that indebtedness
by means of lawful remedies now available in Federal statutes and implementing Federal regulations
conferring original jurisdiction upon the United States Bankruptcy Courts for that lawful purpose.

See Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 in the Constitution for the United States of America,
as lawfully amended, and Titles 11 and 28 of the United States Code, in chief.

Sincerely yours,
/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S.

Brzezinski: U.S. Recession Could Lead to Riots

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Adviser to Jimmy Carter, thinks America’s rich people should get together and create a fund to give money to America’s non-rich people. Pay it forward — or else. Here is what he alarmingly said today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program (thanks to FinkleBlog):

Where is the monied class today? Why aren’t they doing something: the people who made billions, millions. I’m sort of thinking of Paulson, of Rubin. Why don’t they get together, and why don’t they organize a National Solidarity Fund in which they call on all of those who made these extraordinary amounts of money to kick some back in to [a] National Solidarity Fund?… And if we don’t get some sort of voluntary National Solidarity Fund, at some point there’ll be such political pressure that Congress will start getting in the act, there’s going to be growing conflict between the classes and if people are unemployed and really hurting, hell, there could be even riots.

Me: For a second, Brzezinski reminded me of Peter Venkman from “Ghostbusters”: “This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. … Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!” Now I have a better suggestion: How about the government let the “monied class” and everybody else keep more of what they earn so it can be spent or saved or invested.

February 17th, 2009

Via: TruthDig:

The specter of social unrest was raised at the U.S. Army War College in November in a monograph [click on Policypointers’ pdf link to see the report] titled “Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in Defense Strategy Development.” The military must be prepared, the document warned, for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,” which could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse,” “purposeful domestic resistance,” “pervasive public health emergencies” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.” The “widespread civil violence,” the document said, “would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.”

“An American government and defense establishment lulled into complacency by a long-secure domestic order would be forced to rapidly divest some or most external security commitments in order to address rapidly expanding human insecurity at home,” it went on.

“Under the most extreme circumstances, this might include use of military force against hostile groups inside the United States. Further, DoD [the Department of Defense] would be, by necessity, an essential enabling hub for the continuity of political authority in a multi-state or nationwide civil conflict or disturbance,” the document read.

In plain English, something bureaucrats and the military seem incapable of employing, this translates into the imposition of martial law and a de facto government being run out of the Department of Defense. They are considering it. So should you.

Task Force 21 consultant talks about possibility of Global Strike Command at Minot AFB

17 Feb 2009 A former 5th Bomb Wing commander at Minot Air Force Base and now consultant for Minot's base retention and new mission committee [Maj. Gen. Greg Power], urged local people to be optimistic about the base being selected for the headquarters of the new nuclear command. Minot AFB is among six bases vying for the headquarters site of the new Global Strike Command, which will oversee the Air Force's nuclear enterprise. [See: Minot AFB Clandestine Nukes 'Oddities'.]

U.S. Military Preparing for Domestic Disturbances

A new report from the U.S. Army War College discusses the use of American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening economic crisis.

The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warns that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.”

Entitled “Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in Defense Strategy Development,” the report was produced by Nathan Freier, a recently retired Army lieutenant colonel who is a professor at the college — the Army’s main training institute for prospective senior officers.

He writes: “To the extent events like this involve organized violence against local, state, and national authorities and exceed the capacity of the former two to restore public order and protect vulnerable populations, DoD [Department of Defense] would be required to fill the gap.”

Freier continues: “Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order … An American government and defense establishment lulled into complacency by a long-secure domestic order would be forced to rapidly divest some or most external security commitments in order to address rapidly expanding human insecurity at home.”

International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned last week of riots and unrest in global markets if the ongoing financial crisis is not addressed and lower-income households are beset with credit constraints and rising unemployment, the Phoenix Business Journal reported.

Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Rep. Brad Sherman of California disclosed that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson discussed a worst-case scenario as he pushed the Wall Street bailout in September, and said that scenario might even require a declaration of martial law.

The Army College report states: “DoD might be forced by circumstances to put its broad resources at the disposal of civil authorities to contain and reverse violent threats to domestic tranquility. Under the most extreme circumstances, this might include use of military force against hostile groups inside the United States.

“Further, DoD would be, by necessity, an essential enabling hub for the continuity of political authority in a multi-state or nationwide civil conflict or disturbance.”

He concludes this section of the report by observing: “DoD is already challenged by stabilization abroad. Imagine the challenges associated with doing so on a massive scale at home."

As Newsmax reported earlier, the Defense Department has made plans to deploy 20,000 troops nationwide by 2011 to help state and local officials respond to emergencies.

The 130-year-old Posse Comitatus Act restricts the military’s role in domestic law enforcement. But a 1994 Defense Department Directive allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations to save lives, prevent suffering or mitigate great property damage, according to the Business Journal.

And Gen. Tommy Franks, who led the U.S. military operations to liberate Iraq, said in a 2003 interview that if the U.S. is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.

Repaired too Late? Tevatron May Beat LHC in Hunt for Higgs Boson

The CDF detector at Fermilab's Tevatron accelerator (Fermilab)

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is billed as the next great particle accelerator that will give us our best chance yet at discovering the illusive exchange particle (or boson) of the Higgs field. The discovery (or not) of the Higgs boson will answer so many questions about our universe, and our understanding of the quantum world could be revolutionized.

But there's a problem. The LHC isn't scheduled for restart until September 2009 (a full year after the last attempt) and particle collisions aren't expected until October. Even then, high energy collisions won't be likely until 2010, leaving the field wide open for competing accelerator facilities to redouble their efforts at making this historic discovery before the LHC goes online.

The Tevatron, at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Illinois, is currently the most powerful accelerator in the world and has refined high energy particle collisions so much, that scientists are estimating there is a 50% chance of a Higgs boson discovery by the end of 2009
