Water Concerns Rising as Cattle Die in Drought-Stricken Texas … After Drinking Too Much Water

07/14/2011 Leave a comment

By BETSY BLANEY – “LUBBOCK, Texas — The unrelenting Texas drought has produced a cruelly ironic twist: cattle dying from too much water.

Agriculture officials in parched Texas said Wednesday there are no hard numbers on how many head of cattle have died but reports of deaths from too much water or too little are on the rise across the nation’s leading cattle production state.

‘They over drink because they’re thirsty,’ said Dr. Robert Sprowls of the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory in Amarillo. ‘Once they fill up on water it happens pretty quickly.’

Producers are losing cattle after moving them from withered pastures where water tanks have dried up. Once in new pastures, cattle that die take in too much water too quickly. The animals die within minutes and their carcasses are found near the stock tanks from which they were drinking, Ted McCollum, a beef cattle specialist with Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Amarillo, said.

Texas is coming off its driest nine-month period ever and its hottest June on record. More than 90 percent of the state is in the two most severe drought stages. The cattle deaths are occurring earlier, in part because of lack of forage growth in pastures.

‘We are seeing more incidents of heat stress in cattle,’ he said. ‘More incidents of death and problems with health.’

As with humans, water intoxication can occur when there’s too much water in the body, which disrupts electrolyte balance in cells. Death can occur.” Read more.

Utah: Fatal Crash After Huge Sink Hole Opens Highway

“SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 15-year-old girl is dead after heavy rains caused a huge sink hole to open on a northeastern Utah highway, swallowing one vehicle and causing her father’s SUV to careen off the road.

Authorities said the crash that killed Justine Barneck and injured her father, Michael Barneck, late Wednesday night happened when the road collapsed in front of them, leaving a patch of asphalt on the edge of the hole that the vehicle hit, causing the fatal accident.

At about the same time, a second car actually went into the 40-foot-wide, 30-foot-deep hole, said Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson. The driver of that vehicle, 37-year-old Helen Paulson, was hurt, but the extent of her injuries was not immediately clear.

The accidents near Tabiona, about 90 miles east of Salt Lake City, came about 15 minutes after a heavy storm began at about 11:30 p.m., quickly overflowing a clogged culvert and washing out the two-lane state road, Johnson said.” Read more.

Exploiting the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary

07/14/2011 Leave a comment

On the dangerous road to ruin, driven by complacency and impaired by political correctness, America and the West are fast asleep at the wheel in a state called denial.  Can the voice of reason awaken us from our slumber and save us from catastrophe, or do we only open our eyes after we’ve already lost control?

By Joseph Klein – “As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, the Islamists and their supporters are busy preparing a disinformation campaign to whitewash Sharia law and Islamic ideology under the banner of an operation they call ‘Prepare New York.’ The intent is to use a front of ‘interfaith’ alliances with progressive groups to marginalize those who are trying to expose the truth about the Islamist agenda and to exploit the 9/11 anniversary for propaganda purposes.

Prepare New York is following the blueprint laid out by the Muslim Brotherhood in its 1982 manifesto entitled Toward a Worldwide Strategy for Islamic Policy, a 12-point strategy to ‘establish an Islamic Power on the earth.’ To do this, the Muslim Brotherhood set out to ‘channel thought, education and action’ to ‘influence centers of power both local and worldwide to the service of Islam,’ and to ‘work within various influential institutions and use them in the service of Islam.’

In a document entitled the Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group In North America, written in 1987 and published in 1991, authored by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram, the work of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates in America was described as ‘a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.’

The method for ‘eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within’ would include developing ‘a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions,’ the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’

One of the first steps for Islamists upon arriving in a non-Muslim country to live is to declare the common bonds between Islam and the more prevalent religions in the host country through bridge-building and interfaith sessions. As they gain more of a foothold, the Islamists become more vocal about the host country’s need to accommodate the special demands of Islamic law, which they couch in human rights terms of free expression of religion, anti-racism and anti-discrimination. They find willing partners among progressive religious groups and opinion leaders to help carry this phony message of tolerance and anti-bigotry.” Read more.

Egyptian Imam: Whoever Insults the Prophet Muhammed Must Be Killed, ‘Even If He Repents’

07/14/2011 Leave a comment

According to Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni, a popular Egyptian teacher of Islam, if someone insults their god ‘Allah’ only to then repent of the offense later, they are permitted to live.  However notice how the man Mohammed — the founder of Islam — is even after death exalted to such a degree that if someone insults their prophet then that person must be killed, even if they repent of the offense.

Revelation 13:18: Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the multitude of the beast: for it is the multitude of a man; and his multitude is χξς

Breitbart – “The above clip was taken from an interview given by Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni on the Egyptian satellite television station al-Hikma on 7 July 2011. Al-Huwayni here explains that whoever insults Muhammad, even if he later repents, must be killed.

Later in the interview, al-Huwayni went on to contrast this with the case of one who insults Allah. He said that insulting Allah of course makes one an infidel, which is agreed to by all Islamic scholars, yet the one who insults Allah is not killed–he is merely called to repentance. This is because even if the whole world insults Allah, it does not matter to him–it does not hurt him.

After recounting a hadith regarding Muhammad being mocked by poetry from the Quraysh, al-Huwayni explained that Muhammad “had complete authority to waive his right (to kill those who mocked him). But the ruler does not have the authority to waive the Prophet’s right.” Al-Huwayni reported that Muhammad could waive this right whenever he wanted, but after his death he retained this right, meaning no one could waive the right for him. That is why those who insult the Prophet now must be killed.

He then narrated another hadith in which Abu-Bakr, the first rightly-guided caliph of Islam, became furious with someone who had mocked him. Abu-Barza offered to kill this man for Abu-Bakr. Abu-Bakr explained, however, that this right (i.e. to kill the one who mocks the ruler) was not given to anyone after Muhammad; or in other words, only Muhammad had the right to kill those who mocked him.

He said all of this in the context of the current controversy in Egypt with the Christian businessman Naguib Sawiris, a billionaire and founder of the Free Egyptians Party. Late last month Sawiris tweeted a picture of Mickey Mouse wearing a Muslim beard and jilbab, and Minnie Mouse wearing a niqab, which was considered to be mocking Islam. Al-Huwayni did not say explicitly that Sawiris should be killed for mocking Islam, but did say that all of his companies should be boycotted, even if he only owns 10% share in the company.

Subtitled video above, transcript below:

Whoever insults the Prophet (PBUH), if he later comes and apologizes, and kisses the shoes (of the ruler), and says, “I want all Muslims, every one, to return and strike me with the soles of their feet”–does the ruler have the right to accept this?

I bring up this question, as it was asked of me. The answer is that it is not permissible for anyone to accept this. Then what do we do with him? We kill him! But he told you that he repented. We still kill him, even if he repents!

Conspiracy Theorists: Comet Elenin is Either an ‘Incoming Spacecraft’ or an ‘Intelligently Controlled Object’

07/14/2011 4 comments

Or, more specifically, it’s just a poorly cloaked Klingon Bird of Prey

By Michael Salla – “Comet Elenin is an incoming spacecraft or intelligently controlled object according to a number of presenters at a recently completed conference hosted online by the popular whistleblower website – Project Camelot. Several presenters agreed that Elenin will approach its closest points near the Sun and Earth at a time of extraordinary planetary and societal changes coinciding with the end of the Mayan Calendar. A number of anonymous whistleblowers were cited in support of the view that Elenin was an artificially controlled object responsible for widespread planetary changes in the solar system. The conference broke important ground in uncovering some of the mystery surrounding Comet Elenin, and revealing expert opinions and whistleblower testimonies describing its artificial design and the significance of its orbit. In a surprising omission, the conference organizers did not feature ground breaking scientific literature detailing the seismic impact of Elenin on Earth. Combining insights from the overlooked scientific data and the conference proceedings points to an extraordinary conclusion – Comet Elenin is generating powerful gravity disruption technologies indicative of one or more interstellar spacecraft travelling towards Earth.

The Conference: Elenin was hosted by Kerry Cassidy and featured five presenters who discussed their research data and insights on Comet Elenin. Richard Hoagland, Dr Joseph Farrell, Keith Hunter, Dr Carl Johan Calleman, and Andy Lloyd. Hoagland began the conference with a succinct presentation on the significance of Elenin’s orbit, and why this pointed to it being either an artificial object under intelligent control (an ancient spacecraft) or a natural body (a comet) that has been deliberately launched on an artificial orbit. He placed special emphasis on Elenin’s perihelion (closest point to the sun) on September 11, 2011 as evidence that this was a result of artificial design to draw attention to the profound geopolitical events that occurred ten years earlier.” Read more.

Comet Elenin: Just Passing By – “The bottom line is this: Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin is coming, and it will pass by Earth at an extremely safe distance – 100 times the distance from Earth to the Moon. It will not be changing direction between now and then, it will not exert any gravitational effect on Earth, its magnetic field is nonexistent and there are no Star Destroyers cruising in its wake. The biggest effect it will have on Earth is what we are able to learn about it as it passes – after all, it is a visitor from the far reaches of our solar system and we won’t be seeing it again for a very, very long time.” Read more.

Elenin ‘Observed’ an ‘Astronomical’ Number of Times by NASA; Why Such Interest for a ‘Normal’ Comet? – “According to NASA, Comet Elenin is just an ‘ordinary’ comet. Then why, according to their own data, have they ‘observed’ Comet Elenin 2,181 times in less than 7 months while similar data for Comet Levy shows a mere 324 observations in more than 4 and a half years? In fact, no other Near Earth Object covered by NASA has been observed any where near the number of observations given to Elenin without an object size given. What is it that NASA is so interested in, if Elenin is only a ‘normal’ Comet? Additionally, why is it that NASA is still not giving us an exact size of Ele??? NASA’s watching Elenin like a fox!” Source.

Britain: Gov’t Prepared to Invoke Emergency Powers, Turn Off Power Grid to Shield Country From the ‘Biggest Solar Flare in 150 Years’

07/14/2011 Leave a comment

By Sallie Don and Amos Aikman – “BRITAIN is preparing to invoke emergency powers to turn off its electricity to shield the country from the worst effects of the biggest solar flare in 150 years.

The British government has been warned that a massive surge of energy from the sun could hit the Earth in the next 18 months. In a worst-case scenario, it could blow out the national grid and leave parts of the country without electricity for months.

Australian electricity experts are not convinced the solar flare will have anywhere near the catastrophic effects predicted in Britain and think any electromagnetic surge will go largely unnoticed.

Head of electrical engineering at the University of Technology, Sydney, Jianguo Zhu, said communication networks such as the internet would be the systems most likely to suffer from any solar flare. ‘The power grid is run by a computer network, which could be affected by the surge, which may cause blackouts,’ Professor Zhu told The Australian…

The most extreme form of solar storm could knockout computers and the banking system, throw satellites off course and disrupt GPS technology, navigation and defence systems.” Read more.

Japan: Country is Coming Unhinged as Radiation is Being Spread Almost Willfully

07/14/2011 2 comments

“I have a distinct feeling that Japan is getting totally unhinged.

Consider these news summaries. Consider them together. Do they make sense to you? Yes they do, don’t they? The combined message is this: Let’s all rejoice in the radiation, it’s good for you and your children. If we all have it everywhere, millions of becquerels of it, that’s only fair and equitable.

* 4,320 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium found from the beef from Minami Soma City, Fukushima: the cattle farm that shipped cows found with radioactive cesium far exceeding the already loose provisional safety limit of 500 becquerels/kg is located in the “emergency evacuation-ready zone” – not even “the planned evacuation zone” or plain “evacuation zone”, both of which do exist in Minami Soma City. (Various posts at this blog)

* The PM assistant and the current Minister in charge of the nuclear accident at Fukushima I Nuke Plant Goshi Hosono is going to announce the abolition of the “emergency evacuation-ready zone”, because “the 1st step in TEPCO’s “roadmap” has been mostly successfully implemented”.

* Fukushima Prefecture has announced it will shut down the official shelters within Fukushima, which will force the evacuees to go back to their own homes.

* Minami-Soma City has issued a notice to all 32,000 city residents who have been living in the shelters, temporary housing outside Fukushima Prefecture that they must return to Minami-Soma, high radiation or not. (Mainichi Yamagata version, 7/12/2011)

* The national government will spend 100 billion yen (US$1.26 billion) to observe the health of 2 million Fukushima residents for 30 years, instead of evacuating them ASAP. About 1600 yen (US$20) per year per resident. Life is cheap. Since the national government is utterly broke, it will be ultimately paid for by the taxpayers of Japan.” Read more.

England: Teacups Rattle on the South Coast After Strongest Tremor in 300 Years Shakes in the English Channel

07/14/2011 Leave a comment

“Tea cups rattled at breakfast-time this morning as an earthquake struck the English Channel – and almost went unnoticed.

Some witnesses appeared to doubt whether the small tremor was anything more than a heavy lorry rumbling by on the south coast.

Others based in Worthing, West Sussex, questioned whether the 3.9 magnitude quake was simply a trick of their imagination.

But according to the British Geological Survey (BGS), it is the biggest to strike a 16 mile region in 300 years.

People living in parts of West Sussex said buildings shook for a few seconds at around 8am…

‘This is the largest earthquake within 25 km (16 miles) since a magnitude 4.5 event in 1734,’ David Kerridge, from the BGS, added.” Read more.

New Mexico: 16 Counties Declared Disaster Areas Due to Drought

07/14/2011 Leave a comment

“ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sixteen New Mexico counties have been designated as natural disaster areas due to drought.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the designation Wednesday. It covers counties that stretch from the northeast down to the central portion of the state.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says the designation will provide help to hundreds of New Mexico farmers and ranchers who have suffered significant losses to small grains, pasture and forage crops.

The agency says farmers in several other counties also qualify for natural disaster assistance because their counties are contiguous.

U.S. Sen. Tom Udall says this summer has been a real struggle for New Mexico. He pointed to extreme drought, record temperatures and fires that have destroyed land and crops.” Source.

New Mexico drought forces extreme measures – “Along the Pecos River in eastern New Mexico, the Interstate Stream Commission is being forced for the first time to pump groundwater to augment the river’s flow to meet a settlement with farmers in the Carlsbad Irrigation District. On the lower Rio Grande, farmers have been negotiating with irrigation officials in New Mexico and Texas in hopes of getting additional water to extend what has been the shortest irrigation season on record. In northern New Mexico, the city of Las Vegas has only enough water for the next 57 days.” Read more.
