Pentagon Claims Mystery Missile Unexplained And Possible Threat

leave a comment »

November 9, 2010: New York Post Editors / New York Post – November 9, 2010

The Pentagon said Tuesday that a missile launch off the southern coast of California remained “unexplained” and that its mysterious origins meant that it was not possible to rule out any threat to the homeland, Fox News Channel reported.

Earlier Tuesday, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) and NORTHCOM (United States Northern Command) officials told Fox there was no threat, but Pentagon Spokesman Col. Dave Lapan would not confirm that because the military does not know what the missile was or where it came from. Lapan added that the incident did not appear to be a regularly scheduled test, as no warnings to mariners or airmen appeared to be issued ahead of its launch.

The contrail was caught on camera by a KCBS news helicopter at around sunset Monday evening, approximately 35 miles out to sea and west of Los Angeles. The missile appeared to be launched from the water, and not from US soil, Lapan added. The military was trying to solve the mystery using the video from KCBS as there was no indication that NORAD and NORTHCOM were able to detect it independently.

According to Fox News, NORAD and NORTHCOM would only say they were aware of the launch. However one unnamed senior defense official added: “There was no threat to the homeland.” A navy spokesperson previously told KCBS that no navy activity was reported in the region. A sergeant at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County said a Delta II rocket was launched from the base last Friday, but insisted there were no launches since then.

On viewing the footage, former deputy defense secretary Robert Ellsworth speculated on KCBS that the launch could be a show of military muscle. “It could be a test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine … to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we can do that,” Ellsworth said.

Suspicious “Items” Were Headed For Chicago Religious Institutions

October 29, 2010: Chicago CBS Editor’s / Chicago CBS – October 29, 2010

Updated October 29-31, 2010 – SJH

CHICAGO (CBS) – Authorities stopped two cargo planes with suspicious packages onboard, after learning the items were being sent from Yemen to synagogues in Chicago. Federal officials say two packages from Yemen that were rigged in some way were found on cargo planes. One was a UPS plane stopped in the UK. The other was a FedEx plane stopped in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A U.S. official told CBS News both planes were searched in response to a specific warning that they were carrying suspicious packages addressed to synagogues or Jewish centers in Chicago.

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago was notified of the situation at 10:30 a.m. Friday, and officials there are “taking proper precautions,” said associate vice president Linda Haase. The organization is also advising local synagogues to take precautions, Haase said. Meanwhile, CBS News reports all UPS flights have been grounded. A law enforcement source tells CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine the word is out to synagogues in Chicago not to accept UPS packages from east of New York. They are asked to call Chicago Police if any delivery is attempted.

FBI spokesman Ross Rice added that while there are no identifiable or specific threats to the Chicago area, all churches, synagogues and mosques in the area are being warned to be vigilant for unsolicited or unexpected packages, especially those originating from overseas locations. Authorities say the UPS plane was headed to Chicago from Yemen, and had on-board an ink toner cartridge that looked like it had been converted into a bomb (pictured above). The plane was stopped in the UK Thursday night, CNN reported.

U.K. officials discovered that the toner cartridge had been manipulated and found wires attached to it and white powder. Tests on the device came back negative for explosives, according to a law enforcement official who also spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation. The UPS plane was held at East Midlands Airport, near Nottingham, England. Police and emergency workers examined the package and lifted the security cordon by mid-morning, but Leicestershire Constabulary later said officers were re-examining it “as a precaution.”

Sarah Furbank, a passenger who was about to board a plane out of East Midlands Airport, said that she had noticed an increased security presence. There were “quite a few police cars round the edge” of the airport, Furbank told The Associated Press. “Apparently there was an incident earlier according to staff but they didn’t go into detail.” Additional information is not known about the FedEx plane in Dubai.

President Barack Obama was notified of the potential terrorist threat Thursday evening, and “directed U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security, to take steps to ensure the safety and security of the American people, and to determine whether these threats are a part of any additional terrorist plotting,” according to a statement from White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.

“The president has received regular updates from his national security team since he was alerted to the threat,” Gibbs added. President Obama is set to make a statement on the incident at 3:15 p.m.

Other cargo planes around the U.S. and the world were also searched as a precaution because they carried packages originating in Yemen. Specifically, law enforcement officials packages on two cargo planes in Philadelphia and one in Newark, N.J. One of the flights to Philadelphia was coming in from Paris. The other from Cologne, Germany, and was scheduled to go on to Louisville, Ky.

Police also stopped a UPS truck with a package on New York’s Queensboro Bridge into downtown Manhattan. Some experts said the incident might have been a dry run to test security on cargo planes.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This is a fucking joke! Does anyone actually believe this manufactured booga booga? This is clearly a false flag pre-election reminder that Yemen is in Israel’s, thus their compliant slaves in America’s crosshairs! Mossad, MI6, CIA, FBI and the IDF are comically lacking in creativity.

Let’s ponder a few fundamental questions: Who tipped off the intelligence agencies around the world to these “suspicious items” if no bomb sniffing dogs were alerted? Who else but these very same intelligence agencies could orchestrate such an obvious production? Now reports have come in that bomb material has been found in Dubai that allegedly originated in Yemen to give “creedence” to this worldwide false flag “terrorism” alert…

Ghost Of Bin Laden Invokes Pakistani Floods To Drum Up Support

leave a comment »

October 1, 2010: Hadeel Al-Shalchi / Associated Press via Yahoo News – October 1, 2010

CAIRO – Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden called for the creation of a new relief body to help Muslims in an audiotape released Friday, seeking to exploit discontent following this summer’s devastating floods in Pakistan by depicting the region’s governments as uncaring.

It was the third message in recent weeks from al-Qaida figures concerning the massive floods that affected around 20 million people in Pakistan, signaling a concentrated campaign by the terror group to tap into anger over the flooding to rally support.

But while the earlier messages by subordinates were angry, urging followers to rise up, bin Laden took a softer, even humanitarian tone — apparently trying to broaden al-Qaida’s appeal by presenting his group as a problem-solving protector of the poor. “What governments spend on relief work is secondary to what they spend on armies,” bin Laden says on the 11-minute tape titled “Reflections on the Method of Relief Work.”…”If governments spent (on relief) only one percent of what is spent on armies, they would change the face of the world for poor people,” he said.

The top al-Qaida leader said a new “well-funded” relief organization should be created to study Muslim regions near bodies of water to prevent future flooding, to create development projects in impoverished regions and to work on farming and agriculture to guarantee food security. “The famine and drought in Africa that we see, and the flooding in Pakistan and other parts of the world, with thousands dead along with millions of refugees, that’s why people with hearts should move quickly to save their brothers and sisters,” he said.

He urged Muslim businessmen to develop unused agricultural land in Sudan — where bin Laden was based in the 1990s — to boost food security in case of disaster.

The audiotape was posted on Islamic militant websites, according to the U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadi forums and provided a copy of the message. Its authenticity could not be independently confirmed, though the voice resembled that of bin Laden in confirmed messages by him. The tape is aired over a still photograph of a smiling bin Laden superimposed over a picture of a man distributing aid.

The United States and Pakistani officials have often expressed fears that militant groups in Pakistan could drum up support by exploiting frustration among Pakistanis who feel aid has not reached them quickly following the floods that swept through the country starting in late July.

International donors have pledged more than $800 million for flood relief in Pakistan, the bulk of it coming from the United States which has donated nearly $350 million. The United Nations last month hiked up its call for aid, seeking to raise $2 billion for Pakistan’s flood victims, its largest humanitarian appeal ever.

Two earlier al-Qaida videos about the floods took a sharply militant tone. In a video released last week, a U.S.-born al-Qaida spokesman, Adam Gadahn, urged Muslims in Pakistan to join Islamist militants fighting their nation’s rulers, saying that Islamabad’s “sluggish and halfhearted” response to recent floods showed it did not care for them. Before that, al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, made a thinly veiled call on Pakistanis to rise up against their government over what he said was the “failure” of authorities there to provide relief to flood victims.

Bin Laden often takes a more elevated, philosophical stance than his deputies, aiming to present himself as a sort of elder statesman — opining, for example, on global warming in past messages. Still, in his last audiotape — released in March — he threatened retaliation if the U.S. executes Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-professed architect of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

BP Considers ‘New Plan’ To Permanently Seal Busted Gulf Oil Well?

leave a comment »

July 19, 2010: Henry Fountain / The New York Times – July 19, 2010

As scientists on Monday allayed concerns that BP’s well in the Gulf of Mexico was damaged, the company said it was considering an alternative plan that could permanently seal the gusher sooner than had been anticipated.

Kent Wells, a senior vice president for BP, said the company was studying the possibility of a “static kill,” in which heavy mud would be pumped into the recently capped well.

Also known as bullheading, the procedure would force the oil and gas back down into the reservoir.

“The static kill does give us a new option,” he said at a briefing in Houston. A decision to proceed could be made in several days, Mr. Wells said.

He said that the procedure could speed the process of sealing the well and that the digging of a relief well, which has been seen as the ultimate solution and could be completed by August, might be needed only to confirm that the technique had worked. The flow of oil into the gulf has been shut off since BP installed a cap on the well and closed its valves last Thursday.

On Monday morning, BP and the government said scientists had determined that methane gas seeping from the seafloor nearly two miles from the well was a natural occurrence and not related to a pressure test to assess the well’s condition. The test was extended to a fifth day on Monday. The seeping was discovered on Sunday and raised concerns that the test had shown that the well was damaged and was allowing gas to escape into surrounding rock and up through the seabed.

Thad W. Allen, the retired Coast Guard admiral who commands the spill response, said small numbers of gas bubbles that had appeared much closer to the well were not a problem, either. “It’s the collective opinion of folks that these small seepages do not indicate there is any threat to the well bore,” he said at a briefing in Washington.

Admiral Allen said that the need to extend the tests was being evaluated day to day, and that it was possible the well would remain shut indefinitely. He dismissed concerns that if it was not reopened and collection of oil restarted, the precise flow rate of the oil might never be determined. “I think we’re going to know enough about this well that by the time we’re done we’re going to be able to do that,” he said.

Mr. Wells said the idea of a static kill had arisen because the pressure test so far had shown that the well was not damaged and that the pressure of oil and gas coming from the reservoir was lower than expected. If the procedure was carried out, he said, it could use the same deep-sea plumbing used for the failed “top kill” procedure in late May.

In the top kill, heavy mud was pumped into the flowing well, but engineers could not pump it fast enough or long enough to counter the flow of oil. The static kill would be much more likely to succeed because with the new cap on top and the valves closed, the well is completely sealed and the oil and gas are not moving.

More Lies – Feds Say New Cap Could Contain Gulf Leak By Monday

leave a comment »

July 10, 2010: Tom Breen / Associated Press (AP) via Yahoo News – July 9, 2010

NEW ORLEANS – The BP oil leak could be completely contained as early as Monday if a new, tighter cap can be fitted over the blown-out well, the government official in charge of the crisis said Friday in some of the most encouraging news to come out of the Gulf in the 2 1/2 months since the disaster struck.

If the project planned to begin this weekend is successful, it would simply mean no more oil would escape to foul the Gulf of Mexico. The well would still be busted and leaking — workers would just funnel what comes out of it to tankers at the surface. The hope for a permanent solution remains with two relief wells intended to plug it completely far beneath the seafloor. “I use the word ‘contained,'” said retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen. “‘Stop’ is when we put the plug in down below.” Crews using remote-controlled submarines plan to swap out the cap over the weekend, taking advantage of a window of good weather following weeks of delays caused by choppy seas.

The cap now in use was installed June 4 [2010] to capture oil gushing from the bottom of sea, but because it had to be fitted over a jagged cut in the well pipe, it allows some crude to escape into the Gulf. The new cap — dubbed “Top Hat Number 10” — is designed to fit more snugly and help BP catch all the oil. During the installation, the gusher will get worse before it gets better. Once the old cap is removed, oil will pour into the Gulf unhindered for about 48 hours while the new one is put in place, Allen said.

BP also worked on Friday to hook up another containment ship called the Helix Producer to a different part of the leaking well. The ship, which will be capable of sucking up more than 1 million gallons a day when it is fully operating, should be working by Sunday, Allen said.

The government estimates 1.5 million to 2.5 million gallons of oil a day are spewing from the well, and the existing cap is collecting about 1 million gallons of that. With the new cap and the new containment vessel, the system will be capable of capturing 2.5 million to 3.4 million gallons — essentially all the leaking oil, officials said.

The plan had originally been to hook up the Helix Producer and install the new cap separately, but the favorable weather convinced officials the time was right for both operations. “Everybody agrees we got the weather to do what we need,” Allen said. He said the calm weather is expected to last seven to 10 days.

In a response late Friday to Allen’s request for detailed plans about the new cap, the Helix Producer and the relief wells, BP managing director Bob Dudley confirmed that the leak could be contained by Monday. But Dudley included plans for another scenario, which includes possible problems and missteps for the installation of the cap that would push the work back until Thursday.

The past 80 days have seen the failure of one technique after another to stop the leak, from a huge containment box to a “top kill” and a “junk shot.” The latest approach is not a sure thing either, warned Louisiana State University environmental sciences professor Ed Overton. “Everything done at that site is very much harder than anyone expects,” he said. Overton said putting on the new cap carries risks: “Is replacing the cap going to do more damage than leaving it in place, or are you going to cause problems that you can’t take care of?”

Containing the leak will not end the crisis that began when the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded April 20, killing 11 workers. The relief wells are still being drilled so they can inject heavy mud and cement into the leaking well to stop the flow, which is expected to be done by mid-August. Then a monumental cleanup and restoration project lies ahead.

Some people in Louisiana’s oil-soaked Plaquemines Parish were skeptical that BP can contain the oil so soon. “Too many lies from the beginning. I don’t believe them anymore,” oyster fisherman Goyo Zupanovich said while painting his boat at a marina in Empire, La.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This is an absolute blatant and in your face bullshit propaganda piece by the mainstream corporate media, BP and the US government. The oil geyser will continue to destroy the Gulf of Mexico until the people of this country wake up and take control of this disaster and this government! – SJH

Rachel Maddow: Inane Global Warming Propaganda Extraordinaire

with 2 comments

February 11, 2010: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – February 11, 2010

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, fellow Americans, and all citizens of the world with any semblance of a functioning brain that can still think critically whatsoever – This has to be one of the most outrageous pieces of absolute bullshit propaganda that I have ever seen. If anyone out there actually still believes this sideways rhetoric, I have 50 yard line tickets to the Saints-Colts Superbowl game in Miami… Honest!

After all the scandals (ClimateGate, GlacierGate, PauchuriGate, AmazonGate, Cap and Trade) that have surfaced recently, not to mention the fact that the world mean temperature has actually decreased 0.7 degrees Celcius since 1998 and record snow and cold temperatures are currently wreaking havoc across the globe, it is unfathomable to comprehend this continuous insanity promoted over the airwaves by the obviously insane. What was it that Einstein stated? “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” In otherwords, this entire “climate change” cult is insane! 

Nobel Peace Prize? Adolph Hitler won it in 1939, Henry Kissinger in 1973, Mikhail Gorbechev in 1990, Yasser Arafat in 1994, Al Gore and the IPCC in 2007, with Barack Hussein Obama taking the turd in 2009… Great company there Nye the science guy… Both you and Maddow are liars and traitors!

These people are like German cockroaches (an actual species) that just keep coming back over and over and over again. This truly is the freaking Twilight Zone. Hey Rod Serling, when does the show end? By the way, can you recommend an exterminator? And so, once again, chew on this reality check from The Tonka Report

Majority Of Americans Would Give Up More Liberties For Security?

leave a comment »

The Truth – January 14, 2010

“They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” – Benjamin Franklin

It is now official.  A majority of Americans are willing to give up liberty in order to be safer from terrorism.  A stunning new McClatchy-Ipsos poll has found that 51 percent of Americans agree with this statement: “it is necessary to give up some civil liberties in order to make the country safe from terrorism.”

Only 36 percent of those polled agreed with this statement: “some of the government’s proposals will go too far in restricting the public’s civil liberties.”

So are Americans really this stupid? Have they really been brainwashed into willingly giving up their essential liberties just so they can feel a little safer? Maybe they have.

After all, a new USA TODAY/Gallup poll says that 78 percent of Americans approve of the new full body scanners that the U.S. government wants to install in all U.S. airports.

So almost 4 out of 5 Americans are perfectly fine with letting airport security officials gawk at their naked bodies just so they can feel a bit safer from terrorists. How sick is that?

The truth is that when Americans allow themselves to become so wimpy and so fearful that they are willing to throw many of their most important freedoms out the window, those responsible for the terror scares have won.

In fact, Amerika (formerly America) is very quickly becoming a brutal police state where privacy is a thing of the past and where free speech and alternative points of view are openly repressed.

For example, in a 2008 academic paper President Barack Obama’s appointee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs advocated “cognitive infiltration” of groups that advocate “conspiracy theories”.

Infiltration of groups with alternative viewpoints that the government doesn’t like? Do we live in East Germany? Apparently we do.

Americans do not care about their freedoms and liberties anymore, so now they are being taken away. And apparently the message of the most recent polls is that Americans are perfectly fine with that.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: If these polls are a true representation of the American people, who the hell are these idiots? If not, these polls are rigged just like our elections. Let us pray for the latter! – SJH

Bill O’Reilly Demands “Deranged” G.H.W. Bush Heckler Be Arrested?!!

leave a comment »

Aaron Dykes / Infowars – January 13, 2010

In his classic defamation segment, ‘Patriots & Pinheads’, Bill O’Reilly condemned the man who confronted former President George H.W. Bush at a Houston restaurant.

“On the pinhead front, President Bush is 85 years old. The other day he was in a Houston restaurant when a deranged person approached him.”

“The guy should have been arrested by the Secret Service,” O’Reilly stated after playing a You Tube clip of the incident. “However, we called them and they will not comment. We don’t know what happened to him. We hope the service will clarify the situation quickly. The guy may be a pinhead but he also deserves to be held accountable– can’t let that stuff go.”

It’s no surprise that O’Reilly is defending the former President, but at a bare minimum, free speech certainly should protect this man from arrest. He certainly has a right to criticize one of America’s most powerful dynasties, who have condemned millions to death through war, and much more.

Though the man did shout profanities, he clearly made no threats, was not violent and posed no danger to the former president.

In fact, the Secret Service did visit the man’s home the next day, but left shortly after refusing to speak while a camera was recording (i.e. on the record). Whatever their intentions were cannot be immediately known (see video below). He appeared today on the Alex Jones Show, using only his first name, Greg, to explain his perspective on the situation.

United States And UK Close Yemen Embassies Over Al-Qaeda Threats

leave a comment »

Anne Gearan and Lee Keath / Associated Press – January 3, 2010

SAN’A, Yemen – Western embassies in Yemen locked up Sunday after fresh threats from al-Qaida, and the White House expressed alarm at the terror group’s expanded reach in the poor Arab nation where an offshoot apparently ordered the Christmas Day plot against a U.S. airliner.

President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, cited “indications al-Qaida is planning to carry out an attack against a target” in the capital, possibly the embassy, and estimated the group had several hundred members in Yemen. Security reasons led Britain to act, too; it was not known when the embassies would reopen.

The U.S. is worried about the spread of terrorism in Yemen, a U.S. ally and aid recipient, Brennan said, but doesn’t consider the country a second front with Afghanistan and Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.

As to whether U.S. troops might be sent to Yemen, Brennan replied: “We’re not talking about that at this point at all.” He pledged to provide the Yemeni government with “the wherewithal” to take down al-Qaida.

Britain and the United States are assisting a counterterrorism police unit in Yemen as fears grow about the increasing threat of international terrorism originating from the country.

The Obama administration claims that the suspect in the plot against the Detroit-bound plane was trained and armed by the al-Qaida affiliate in Yemen. Brennan blamed a series of what he called lapses and human errors in U.S. intelligence and security defenses for allowing a Nigerian man to board the plane with explosives. He tried to detonate them as the aircraft approached Detroit on Dec. 25, (2009).

The Transportation Security Administration announced Sunday that, starting Monday, passengers flying into the United States from Nigeria, Yemen and other “countries of interest” will be subject to enhanced screening techniques, such as body scans and pat-downs.
