Five Big Holes Around The World – With A Bonus Of The Pentagon!

with one comment

Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report – July 17, 2009 & Mercola – July 14, 2009

1. Kimberlee Big Hole — South Africa

Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world, this 1097 meter deep mine yielded over 3 tons of diamonds before being closed.

2. Glory Hole — Monticello Dam, California

A glory hole is used when a dam is at full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir. This is the ‘Glory Hole’ at Monticello dam, and it’s the largest in the world of this type of spillway, its size enabling it to consume 14,400 cubic feet of water every second.

3. Great Blue Hole — Belize

This incredible geographical phenomenon, known as a blue hole, is situated 60 miles off the mainland of Belize. There are numerous blue holes around the world, but none as stunning as this one.

4. Sinkhole — Guatemala

These photos are of a sinkhole that occurred early this year in Guatemala. The hole swallowed 2 dozen homes and killed at least 3 people.

5. And the really terrifying one!

This is the ‘Biggest Sink Hole of All’ that you have heard about. It is capable of swallowing trillions and trillions of U.S. dollars … Annually!

NOAA And GISS’s “Warming” – Despite All Satellite Sensed Cooling

leave a comment »

Joseph D’Aleo / Ice Cap – July 15, 2009

NOAA has as expected announced that June 2009 for the globe was the second warmest June in 130 years, falling just short of 2005. NASA GISS which starts with NCDC GHCN and then adds their own special touches had this June the second warmest on record just behind 1998.

In SHARP contrast, NASA UAH MSU satellite assessment had June virtually normal (+0.001C or 15th coldest in 31 years) and RSS (+0.075C or 14th coldest in 31 years). This is becoming a habit.

NOAA proclaimed May 2009 to be the 4th warmest for the globe in 130 years of record keeping. Meanwhile NASA UAH MSU satellite assessment showed it was the 15th coldest May in the 31 years of its record. This divergence is not new and has been growing. Just a year ago, NOAA proclaimed June 2008 to be the 8th warmest for the globe in 129 years of record keeping. Meanwhile NASA satellites showed it was the 9th coldest June in the 30 years of its record.

We have noted in the last year that NOAA has often become the warmest of the 5 major data sets in their monthly global anomalies. They were second place until they removed the USHCN UHI adjustment in 2007 and introduced a new ocean data set recently.

NOAA and the other ground based data centers would have more credibility if one of the changes resulting in a reduction of the warming trend and not an exaggeration which has been the case each and every time.

Video: CNN’s “Wag The Dog” Broadcasts During The First Gulf War

Yodadog Productions – October 28, 2008

CNNs Charles Jaco in Saudia Arabia

CNN's Charles Jaco in "Saudia Arabia"

During the 1991 Gulf War, CNN broadcast fake coverage from studios in Saudi Arabia. Viewers suspected nothing. See CNN’s Charles Jaco joke off-camera about the hoax they were playing. Don’t think for a moment they’ve stopped doing this. One only has to watch this clip to understand how a global media giant like CNN can fool not just a population, but an entire planet…

In 1991 CNN aired, day after day, fake coverage from “Saudi Arabia” during the Gulf War.

CNN’s Charles Jaco and his crew never left the studio. And nobody suspected anything. Nobody would even imagine they were acting and laughing about it. So what makes you think the media stopped doing this?

Watch the video below…

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: As soon as I posted the image above of Charles Jaco reporting for CNN from Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War, it was promptly removed from Google Images and thus, my website. I was going to change the image, but have decided to leave it as is (blank) as a testimony to the censorship of this out of control, illegitimate government with the complicity of Google…Tonka

The Tonka Report Update: Well, well, the image of Jaco is back after I posted those previous comments that made it to the Google Search page. Hmmm…Tonka

Unreality Check: Amnesiac Controversy Ignore’s CIA’s Death Squads

leave a comment »

Chris Floyd / Empire Burlesque – July 15, 2009

The unreality that has long pervaded American politics, policy-making and media reportage is by now almost totally impenetrable. Both action and analysis in the most powerful nation in history now take place in a fantasy world, a simulacrum, a state of permanent amnesia in which facts — established, confirmed, published — vanish almost in the very moment of their appearance. Anyone who tries to reason their way through this feverish hallucination is bound to fail — or succumb to the madness themselves.

This hallucinatory quality of American public life has been on vivid display in recent days, with stories in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Newsweek and elsewhere about a secret CIA program to develop death squads to exterminate “top al Qaeda leaders” in Israeli-style “targeted assassinations.” We are told that Dick Cheney was responsible for drawing up these plans — and for illegally keeping them secret from Congressional oversight. We are also assured that these plans, promulgated by a presidential directive in 2001, “hadn’t become fully operational” by the time that new CIA Director Leon Panetta terminated them after taking up his post earlier this year. The plans were developed, we’re told, but never implemented. Still, the very fact of their existence is considered by some commentators as a grave scandal, one made even worse by Cheney’s cover-up.

All of this is very curious. For the established, confirmed, published fact of the matter is that a CIA assassination program run by the White House on direct orders from the president was put into operation in late 2001. It was operative for many years (and might still be operative; we of course do not know what program Panetta actually terminated — or if he really has terminated any program). Nor was this assassination program aimed solely at “top al Qaeda leaders”: it targeted any number of “suspected” terrorists, whose guilt — and sentence of death — was arbitrary decided by the president, or by the agents in the field to whom Bush issued a literal license to kill. The first known victim of this CIA death squad was an American citizen, killed by a CIA-fired drone missile in Yemen. By Bush’s own public admission — in a nationally televised appearance before both houses of Congress in 2003 — many “suspected terrorists” (his own description) had been killed by American agents.

None of this was secret. All of the above facts were reported in reputable, mainstream newspapers and journals — the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the New Yorker, etc. — beginning in October 2001. And these stories themselves were based on statements by Administration officials, who in many instances were eager to brag about “taking the gloves off” and other macho locutions. Or as one CIA operative in Afghanistan told the Boston Globe in 2002: “We are doing things I never believed we would do — and I mean killing people.”

Federal Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Questioning Obama’s Natural Born Citizen Status: Rules Suit “Moot” Because Of Previous Army Decision

leave a comment »

Lily Gordon / Ledger-Inquirer July 17, 2009

U.S. District Judge Clay Land sided with the government, represented by Maj. Rebecca Ausprung, which claimed Cook’s suit was “moot” because the Army had already told him he doesn’t have to deploy, so the relief he is seeking has been granted.

“The same Constitution upon which Major Cook relies in support of his contention that President Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as President of the United States very clearly provides that federal courts shall only have the authority to hear actual ‘cases and controversies,’” Land stated in his written order. “By restricting the Judiciary’s power to actual ‘cases and controversies,’ our founders wisely established a separation of powers that would ensure the freedom of their fellow citizens. They concluded that the Judicial Branch, the unelected branch, should not inject itself into purely ‘political disputes,’ and that it should not entangle itself in hypothetical debates which had not ripened to an actual legal dispute.”

Are We “Between Time And Timbuktu” As Was “Harrison Bergeron”?

leave a comment »

Kristian Caulder / Infowars – July 17, 2009

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

In Kurt Vonnegut’s short story entitled: Harrison Bergeron – on which a 1972 screenplay, “Between Time & Timbuktu” was based – we are introduced to a world where human creativity and true equality are squashed in the name of fairness… “THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.”

Like many other Patriots, I have found myself to be a lone ranger in the Info-War from time to time.  After all, we are not always joined together – marching, waving signs or distributing materials with our fellow lovers of liberty.  We are often left to defend liberty alone – on random message boards, or at work, or in the homes of our friends and families.  In these moments where I have been forced to stand alone against one, two, sometimes ten [pathetically unknowing] fans of Big Government – more times than not, after presenting the visions and values of true economic freedom and true individual liberty – I am made out to be an enemy of the “little man.”

Vonnegut’s “Handicapper General” is a most appropriate image to consider when we look at the spineless scum we’ve relied on to defend our beloved Constitutional Republic.  When our elected officials spend more time trying to create an illusion of fairness with back-assward legislation – from Hate Crime Laws, Cyber-Bullying and Fairness Doctrines to No Child Left Behind and runaway entitlements – they are throwing shackles around the ankles and necks of American ingenuity.

Vonnegut describes his title character, Harrison Bergeron, as such:

“He is a genius and an athlete, is under–handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous.”

Jakarta: False Flag Attacks To Rekindle Global War On Terrorism

leave a comment »

Jurriaan Maessen / Prison Planet – July 17, 2009

Reuters reports that blasts at the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels in Jakarta killed at least 9 people, as well as injuring at least 50. In addition, Reuters has reported that a car bomb has been detonated at a toll road in North Jakarta not long after- although the Dow Jones news wires report this last explosion was not caused by a bomb but by a pick-up truck, catching fire.

According to eyewitness reports, the blast in both hotels took place just minutes apart, and emanating from within the buildings, pointing to either an attack by suicide bombers- or to the possibility that the explosives were planted there beforehand. Reports by the Straits Times indicate the latter option is the most probable, as an unexploded bomb has been found and defused at the Marriott hotel. In any case, all eyewitness accounts say the blasts clearly occurred from the inside out.

Greg Woolstencroft, chief technical officer at a local television station, was near the scene at the time of the explosions. He told CNN’s Anderson Cooper: “I’ve actually lived at the Ritz-Carlton for 12 months, that hotel has probably got the highest security of any hotel in Indonesia. And I just don’t know how someone could get in there with a bomb, given the level of security, the level of screening people have to go through. I just don’t know how that person got that bomb in.”

“Given the bombing that happened at the Marriott previously”, Woolstencrof added, “you can’t actually drive into the lobby. You’ve got to come through, more effectively at the back of the building to get into the front of the building. And there there’s major metal barriers, the vehicles are searched, there’s armed guards at that checkpoint, once you go up to the lobby there’s metal detectors, your bags are searched before you go through those metal detectors. There’s another area where you go into the basement and the vehicles are checked once again before you go into the basement. So that’s the sort of level of security there is, you know, so I just don’t know how a person would be able to get that bomb in, unless there was some level of cooperation, I don’t know.”

Paulson Threatened Great Depression, Food Riots To Get Bailout Bill Passed: More Information Concerning The Blackmail Of Congress

leave a comment »

Paul Joseph Watson / Prison Planet – July 17, 2009

More information has come to light regarding former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson’s threats to Congress last fall that martial law would ensue unless they passed the bailout bill.

During Paulson’s first appearance on Capitol Hill since he left office yesterday, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs said he told Congress privately that if they rejected the bailout bill another great depression would ensue, that there would be a breakdown in law and order as well as food riots and civil unrest, adding that he couldn’t reveal such things publicly for fear that the situation would “terrify the American people and lead to an even bigger problem”.

The threat of martial law was subsequently proven to be made on a fraudulent pretext because Paulson’s justification – that the money was needed to buy up toxic debt – was abandoned almost immediately and the money was directly injected into banks – and even forced upon financial institutions who tried to reject TARP funds.

The fact that the entire purpose of the bailout was switched as soon as it was approved by Congress proves that Paulson’s threat was nothing less than financial terrorism and a successful effort to blackmail Congress with hastily manufactured doomsday scenarios.

As we reported at the time, on October 2, Democratic Congressman Brad Sherman gave a stunning speech on the House floor during which he decried the fact that, “Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday that the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points the first day, another couple of thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no.”

Watch the video below…

A few days before, Rep. Michael Burgess also told the House, “Mr. Speaker I understand we are under Martial Law as declared by the speaker last night,” referring to a temporary suspension of the rules and procedures of Congress by its leaders so that a bill can be passed quickly.
