2011: World in Turmoil

3 Apr

Copyright 2011-3011 Alternative News Forum, All Rights Reserved.

This page will be updated periodically as new video reports are made available.

From Ireland to the southern tip of Africa, from East to West and beyond, the coming of the year 2011 brings fresh new turmoil, new wars and rumors of wars, across the globe. The end time Kali Yuga period rages on, and man’s inhumanity to man is on display around the world. Civil unrest, dissatisfaction, political upheaval and other signs of unusual evil and personal cruelty are everywhere.

Anymore it is hard to open the news and read it without being sickened by it. I find I want to take more days off and do pleasant, soul nurturing things that have nothing to do with bearing witness to  more death, killing, war and human horrors, and readers will note that some days the blog is silent.

On those days I am doing something beautiful that has nothing whatsoever with any of this hell on earth that is breaking out everywhere and I hope others are doing the same. That having been said, here is the grim news report of who is warring with whom, where, and a brief video round-up of what’s happening today on the besieged planet earth.

Obama Breaks His Oath Not To Send Troops to Libya, 2,000 Marines To Deploy to Libya Today 3.31.11

Arming the Libyan Rebels Will Be A Grave and Catastrophic Mistake

As the Obama administration ponders arming Libyan Rebels, the danger and irony of such an action is not lost on American Patriots, who are opposed to more foreign interventionism. What is emerging cannot be minimized or disregarded. The evidence clearly points to an emerging theme of global Islamic jihad among the Libyan rebels, as it is also being noted among other uprisings throughout the region.

The fact that Iran made a special video educating their people about the imminent appearance of the Imam Mahdi, or the “last Imam” speaks volumes.

This is a moment when American lawmakers need to clear their heads and their resolve and put a stop to US involvement in a war which will eventually result in arming more Jihadists against Americans and the West. We have already done that once when earlier administrations armed and trained a young freedom fighter for the Afghan people named Osama Bin Laden in the 1980s.

Informed  observers who are not affiliated with a party, an agenda or a political strategy one way or the other can see that what is taking place now in the Mideast has a specific undercurrent. That undercurrent is flowing along ideological lines that pour straight into the existing  river of hatred for the west that has inspired the radical Islamic dream of global Jihad.

If the Obama administration continues to support the Libyan rebels with arms and more tactical and missile support, we will be inadvertently helping to pave the streets they will run on later as they eventually begin to unify their disparate dreams across the Mideast into one colossal united Islamic army with the goal of annihilating the West. THAT is exactly where this is all going.

It’s insanity for the Obama administration to be supporting what is taking place in Libya. This will come back to harm us in ways we cannot imagine at this time.

Here’s what one rebel fighter said who is a University student in Libya. My guess is that he is not alone in his sentiments.

“We want a society based on the Quran,” he said, speaking in the formal Arabic tones of a mosque preacher.

“Freedom of religion, we don’t want it,” he said. “We want the freedom to practice our religion, but we don’t want freedom for Jews and Christians and to have naked women and alcohol.”

Years from now when historians are trying to pick through the rubble of the third world war, looking for evidence of just exactly when and where it all started, they will be looking squarely in the eyes of the American decision makers in the Obama administration who chose to do the most catastrophically foolish thing in any modern American presidency, to choose to arm the very people whose ultimate goal in life is to destroy us, our civilization, our religion, our way of life and everything that we hold dear.

That’s where the accountability will lie after the great and final war is over.

The Japan Mega-Quake Moved Japan Eight Feet Closer to USA, Shifted & Sped Up Earth’s Axis Rotation

Earthquake Moves Japan Eight Feet, Shifting Earth’s Axis; Entire Villages Vanish Under Wall of Water; Nuclear Crisis Expands to 2nd Reactor

Scientists upgraded the devastating earthquake that struck Japan from 8.8 or 8.9 to 9.0 on the Richter Scale. That may not sound like much but the scale is logarithmic effectively doubling the estimated size of the quake.

Regardless of what the number is, the quake was devastating enough to move the main island of Japan 8 feet while shifting the earth on its axis. Entire villages in Northern Japan are missing, swept away by the resultant tsunamis.

Meanwhile Japanese authorities struggling with additional meltdowns have flooded a second reactor with seawater hoping to cool the plant. This is a desperate action that will probably ruin both facilities.

Power outages and lack of fresh water add to the misery.

Villages, Trains Vanish Under Wall of Water

The New York Times reports Japan Pushes to Rescue Survivors as Quake Toll Rises

While nuclear experts were grappling with possible meltdowns at two reactors after the devastating earthquake and ensuing tsunami in northern Japan, the country was mobilizing a nationwide rescue effort to pluck survivors from collapsed buildings and rush food and water to hundreds of thousands of people without water, electricity, heat or telephone service.

Entire villages in parts of Japan’s northern Pacific coast have vanished under a wall of water, and many communities are cut off, leaving the country trying to absorb the scale of the destruction even as fears grew over the unfolding nuclear emergency.

In the port town of Minamisanriku, nearly 10,000 people were unaccounted for, according to the public broadcaster NHK. Much of the northeast was impassable, and by late Saturday rescuers had not arrived in the worst-hit areas.

JR, the railway company, reported that three passenger trains had not been accounted for as of Saturday night, amid fears that they were swept away by the tsunami. There were reports of as many as 3,400 buildings destroyed and 200 fires raging. Analysts estimated that total insured losses from the quake could hit $15 billion, Reuters reported.

Even as estimates of the death toll from Friday’s quake rose, Japan’s prime minister, Naoto Kan, said 100,000 troops would be mobilized for the increasingly desperate rescue recovery effort. Meanwhile, several ships from the United States Navy joined the rescue effort. The McCampbell and the Curtis Wilbur, both destroyers, prepared to move into position off Miyagi Prefecture.

One-third of Kesennuma, a city of 74,000, was reported to be submerged, the BBC said, and photographs showed fires continued to rage there. Iwate, a coastal city of 23,000 people, was reported to be almost completely destroyed, the BBC said.

Crisis Expands to Second Nuclear Plant

MarketWatch reports Japanese nuclear-power crisis expands to second plant

Citing Japan’s Fire and Disaster Management Agency, Kyodo News reported the cooling system failed at the Tokai No. 2 Power station. No additional information was available. Tokai, about 75 miles from Tokyo and the site of nuclear-research facilities as well as the power plant, was the site of a 1999 radiation leak, known as the Tokaimura accident, that killed two technicians.

Word of the problem at Tokai came as Japanese nuclear authorities continued working Sunday to avert nuclear meltdown at an earthquake-damaged power plant, Prime Minister Naoto Kan warned Japan of large-scale power blackouts and said the disaster was the country’s biggest crisis since World War II. That came as Japanese scientists increased their estimate of the largest earthquake in the nation’s history to magnitude 9.0 from 8.8, more than doubling the size and the destructive energy release in the Friday afternoon, local time, quake off the coast of Honshu.

[Officials] began flooding the second reactor with seawater, a drastic move that scientists have said might render the units unusable. But the water gauge in the No. 3 has stopped functioning, making it impossible to tell whether the procedure is succeeding, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Earthquake Moves Main Island Eight Feet and Shifts Earth on its Axis

CNN reports Earthquake Moves Japan Eight Feet, Shifting Earth’s Axis

The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.

“At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass,” said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

The Japanese quake comes just weeks after a 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch on February 22, toppling historic buildings and killing more than 150 people. The timeframe of the two quakes have raised questions whether the two incidents are related, but experts say the distance between the two incidents makes that unlikely.

“I would think the connection is very slim,” said Prof. Stephan Grilli, ocean engineering professor at the University of Rhode Island.

Bank of Japan Readies “Massive Liquidity”

Bloomberg reports Japan Readies ‘Massive’ Liquidity as BOJ Gauges Risk to Post-Quake Economy

Governor Masaaki Shirakawa told reporters late yesterday he’s ready to unleash “massive” liquidity starting this morning in Tokyo, as the BOJ seeks to assure financial stability.

Shirakawa and his board could opt to accelerate asset purchases, including government bonds and exchange-traded funds, within the existing credit programs, particularly if the yen climbs and stocks tumble, said Masaaki Kanno, chief Japan economist at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Tokyo, who used to work at the central bank.

The economic hit from the March 11 quake will depend on how long it shuts down factories and the distribution of goods and services, with the potential meltdown at a nuclear power facility clouding the outlook. For now, the central bank is likely to ensure lenders have enough cash to settle transactions, and aim any additional steps at providing credit in the areas of northeastern Japan devastated by the temblor, analysts said.

Japan’s currency rose 1.4 percent to 81.84 per dollar March 11 amid prospects for Japanese investors to repatriate assets, bringing its gain in the past year to 10 percent. The government may order the BOJ to sell yen if it soars, Mansoor Mohi-uddin, head of global currency strategy at UBS AG in Singapore, wrote in a note.

Japan is already struggling with huge fiscal deficits and a debt-to-GDP ratio of 200%, highest in the G-20 group of nations. In response, government officials had been planning a series of tax hikes. You can now safely toss those hikes straight into the ashcan.

There is never a good time for a natural disaster, but this one could hardly have come at a worse time. Best wishes to all those affected by this crisis.

Bombshell: “The Sting” Citizen Journalists Pose as Muslim Extremists, Offer NPR $5 Million Check, NPR Executive Reveals His True Colors, for Money

10 Mar

Copyright 2011-3011 By CK Hunter, All Rights Reserved.

I waited for a day or so before I reported on this astounding breaking story. I wanted to see the actual hidden camera video which the “Sting” operators took at their luncheon with NPR executives at a downdown Washington D.C. cafe. Here it is, procured from the news reporting website The Israeli Insider.

Long story short: Two citizen journalists posed as Muslim extremists willing to hand over a $5 million dollar check to NPR in return for news stories favorable to Muslim radicals who want to establish Sharia Law in the USA. The link is at the end of this post. Watch the entire video, and you can follow the conversation in narrative text to the right.

You can’t make this stuff up folks. The good executives from NPR called Americans who are Tea Party patriots every ugly name in the book, from gun toting fundamentalist Christians to all out racists. There is ABSOLUTELY no way that NPR could ever be construed as an actual unbiased and impartial news outlet, based on what their executives said to these two men who they assumed to be radical Muslims.

Under no circumstances should NPR EVER get one more red cent of federal money to finance their pro-Islamic, pro-Sharia Law, anti-American extreme left wing agenda. If you ever had any doubts about what an extreme left wing propaganda organization is, how it speaks, what it promotes, have a look. The video does not lie. What NPR is doing in meeting with these two men to take their money in exchange for slanted reporting that bends the story the Muslim way could not be construed as impartial journalistic news reporting by any stretch.

As you listen to the NPR executive’s opening comments to his lunch guests about the Muslim Brotherhood, keep in mind the Wahabbi Saud family and Nazi SS roots of the Muslim Brotherhood which I wrote about two weeks ago. The Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest and largest radical Islamic organization in the world, and is the philosophical fountainhead for advocacy of global Jihad against the West and the advocacy for the destruction of Israel. Either organizations like NPR are literally attempting to rewrite the history of World War II, the Muslim Jihad movement and the Muslim Brotherhood via overt political and propaganda white-washing, or they are the most ill informed and naive, dangerously foolish people in the news business in America today. Either option is intolerable if we care about a free and politically neutral, independent press in the United States.

This video is a live hidden camera streaming record of the luncheon and the conversation that took place. I could not locate a section where it looked edited.
