Warning Signs: Living in a Forest…

Driving around my hometown and surrounding communities in New Jersey, a familiar sight has been tree stumps, the wreckage left behind by Hurricane Sandy. Having lived here with few breaks my entire life, it never occurred to me how many trees there are. From a lookout point in the Essex County South Mountain Reservation area one sees in the distance the city of New York.

 

As far as the eye can see, it is entirely forested.

In an interesting new book, “Nature Wars”, by Jim Sterba, a veteran journalist, takes the reader on a journey to America’s long ago past and brings him to the present. In the process, he removes a lot of mythology and replaces it with some extraordinary facts that are the background for the way our modern lifestyles put us in conflict with many species that are not only thriving, but some which faced virtual extinction from over-hunting, especially during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

The real story behind the defeat of the media chosen

Yes there has been a massive demographic shift in the make-up of our country since the suicidal adoption of the Kennedy Immigration Act in 1965.

Pat Buchannan has warned us for years that this was a demographic time bomb implanted by the Progressives in the very heart of America.

Yes the massive amnesty which is soon to turn tens of millions of illegal immigrants into citizens and loyal democratic voters will effectively spell the end of any possibility for a supporter of limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom to win the White House.

Just before Hurricane Sandy, Obama signed executive order merging Homeland Security with private sector to create virtual dictatorship

November 8, 2012 Leave a comment

NaturalNews While all eyes were on Hurricane Sandy in the days leading up to the storm’s breach on the mainland of the Northeast, the White House was busy devising new ways to enslave Americans under the guise of protecting national security.

On October 26, 2012, Barack Obama quietly signed an Executive Order EO establishing the so-called Homeland Security Partnership Council, a public-private partnership that basically merges the Department of Homeland Security DHS with local governments and the private sector for the implied purpose of giving the Executive Branch complete and limitless control over the American people.One of the most effective ways by which the federal government has been able to spread its tendrils into every level of state, regional, and local governments in years past has been to continually convince the people that terrorism lurks around every corner, and that the federal government is needed to provide safety. This, of course, is how blatantly unconstitutional provisions like the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act NDAA were able to get passed with relative ease — without these draconian expansions of federal control over American affairs, the terrorists will win, we were all told.

White House forming nationwide secret police to monitor lives of AmericansThis is precisely the angle being taken with the new EO, except it goes even further in conflating federal power structures with local governments and the private sector. Based on the eery language contained in the EO, the federal government appears ready to begin rapidly expanding its command and control operations at the local level by establishing a vast network of homeland security “partnerships” throughout the country, which will be tasked with reporting back to the central command center and feeding “intelligence” information as requested by federal officials…….

Yet, for all of that, he did not deal with the real problem. Our real problem in this country is not economic, it is theological. All of our other problems flow out from our theological problems, which started early and continued often.

Prison Planet.com » Big boom still has Poconos buzzing

April 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Was it a secret military exercise, the beginning of the Mayan prophesy or an alien invasion?

A loud boom, heard by Pocono residents and others throughout northeastern Pennsylvania the night of March 30, remains a mystery.

The boom, heard at about 10:10 p.m., shook cars and houses from Long Pond to Bushkill.

Pocono Record readers at the time speculated it was a tanker wreck on Interstates 80 or 380, a bunch of semi-trucks rolling down a quiet street or an exploding meth lab.

Some residents reported a bright flash in the sky that didn’t appear to be lightning just before the blast.

But most readers agreed the sound was no routine thunder.

What it wasn’t…..

Motorists face an ‘avalanche’ of higher tolls

Motorists face an ‘avalanche’ of higher tolls

Tolls along the Eastern seaboard are going up so much, says Darrin Roth, that in four years, a semitrailer making the four-hour trip from Baltimore to New York City could pay as much as $209.25. The price of tolls, in other words, will be more expensive than paying for the driver and fuel.

“The Northeast has become a very unfriendly place for business,” says Roth, the director of highway operations with the American Trucking Associations, “and these higher toll rates make things worse.”

Toll rates are climbing on highways, bridges and tunnels across the country. But the Northeast, with its dense concentration of high-priced toll roads, is especially affected.
