Bioterrorism Homemade in the USA

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

With all the talk and concern about terrorism, including labeling law abiding citizens “domestic terrorists” because they are troubled about the course the USA is taking, one has to stop and wonder about what’s going on regarding bioterrorism and bioweapons by our government and Homeland Security, two miles off Long Island, New York, in a place called the Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) on the infamous Plum Island.

Plum Island houses research facilities that ‘dabble’ in all classes of Frankenstein-like experiments, viruses, bioweapons research, and possibly even different life forms. In July 2008 a creature dubbed the “Montauk Monster”[1] washed up on the Long Island shoreline, followed later by a couple more. A coincidence?

According to those supposedly in the know, PAIDC is in violation of the Geneva Convention. Plum Island’s apparent grotesque—if not surreal—agenda got started under the auspices of Nazi scientist Eric Traub, who worked for Adolph Hitler in the germ warfare lab under Heinrich Himmler, one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany and one of the persons most directly responsible for the Holocaust.[2] Traub was brought to the U.S. under Operation Paper Clip.[3] In 1951 Traub took over operations at Plum Island and became known as the “godfather of Plum Island.” Traub’s ‘specialty’ was infecting mosquitoes and wood ticks with viruses! Some folks, like Randy Sykes, believe Lyme disease originated on Plum Island. Sykes even found a patent pertaining to infecting ticks with viruses.

Undoubtedly more disturbing is the fact that Mr. Sykes found government documents in 2005 listing anthrax and Lyme disease as “bioterrorism.” Even though PAIDC started out under the U.S. Army, after 9-11 it was taken over by Homeland Security, who wants to move PAIDC operations to a university campus in Manhattan, Kansas, in the middle of the country and the farming heartland.

Many have expressed concern about such a move because if any PAIDC organisms were to escape that would be catastrophic for everything: cattle, farmland, and humans. Karl Grossman, a Plum Island historian, says that in 1978 there was a serious incident and foot and mouth disease viruses got out. Furthermore, the new location for PAIDC is in “Tornado Alley,” where the new facility could be subject to the horrors of Nature’s fury and wrath that could breach bio-containment areas and release all kinds of horrible organisms and viruses...

Non defense spending was up. Only defense spending was down. Spin baby spin. My guess it will be revised down farther in the near future.

do you think journalists might convert to unbiased reporting when their health insurance plans become subpar beginning in 2014?
or when their dog can get a hip replacement in less time than they can?
or when their kids graduate college with debt and there are still no jobs but plenty of "free" health insurance while they play Xbox?
So only then does a hypocrite like you really care. I suspect the Republicans as usual had attachments for the rich in there, so we had to sort all of their fat out of the bill.

In other news Chrysler reports 4th quarter earnings of $1.7 billion the company's best performance since the bailout.
Also__there's a chance that the DOW could bust 14,000 this afternoon. Some analysts predict 15,500 by mid summer when the run will level off.
Chrysler is owned by who? Fiat? I believe they are an Italian company? Better hope Ben says he is going to keep printing money this afternoon if you want that to happen. If he says the printing presses are being turned off watch for a major slide.

I Don’t Like Marco Rubio’s Plan

On the specific plan, for lack of legislation, it is clearly written by a group of men who seemingly love government, but do not love free markets, small businesses, or individuals. It is a plan based on faith in government, not free enterprise or the American people.

you forgot to note the unpopularity of stated republican policies.
you wingnuts always leave that out of your excuse meme.
Obama and the Dems have us on the path to becoming New Greece. the unintended consequences of a whole country being supported by a redistributionist government:

'ATHENS, Greece -- Fireplaces were long a status symbol for Greece's up-and-coming middle class, like the second car and the flat-screen TV. Now, they are increasingly their owners' only defense against the encroaching winter cold.

A steep increase in heating costs has led many Greeks to switch from heating oil to wood-burning. But the price of using cheaper fuel is growing.

Illegal loggers are slashing through forests already devastated by years of summer wildfires. Air pollution from wood smoke is choking the country's main cities. And there has been an increase in blazes caused by carelessly attended woodstoves.

(Three children died in a northern village last month when a fire gutted the home of their grandparents, who had recently changed from oil-fueled central heating to a wooden stove to save money.

In Athens, the capital, officials have warned of severe health risks from the low-lying smog that smothers the city at night, when fireplaces and woodstoves burn at full blast in poorly insulated homes. Greece's leading medical association is demanding urgent action to clean the air. But those warnings have largely been ignored for a simple reason: Burning wood provides the same warmth as heating oil, for roughly half the cost.

For the past three years, the country has been wracked by its worst financial crisis since the end of World War II. LIVING STANDARDS HAVE PLUMMETED, PENSIONS HAVE BEEN SLASHED AND A QUARTER OF THE WORKFORCE IS UNEMPLOYED, FOLLOWING DEEPLY RESENTED CUTBACKS DEMANDED IN RETURN FOR INTERNATIONAL BAILOUTS SHIELDING GREECE FROM TOTAL RUIN.

The heating crisis was triggered by taxation changes, and made desperate by financial woes. For years, fuel for vehicles was taxed more heavily than heating oil. That encouraged crooked traders to sell heating fuel for use in vehicles and pocket the difference.

Hoping to boost faltering revenues and foil tax fraud, the government this year harmonized taxes on vehicle fuel and heating oil, which now costs about 40 percent more than last winter, although lower-income residents of colder areas get a rebate.

Critics say the move backfired due to a drastic decline in sales.
"The fact that the price of petrol has greatly increased, while incomes are shrinking to an unbearable extent, creates a vast problem with heating in Greece," said lawmaker Thomas Psyrras from the Democratic Left party - a junior partner in Greece's conservative-led coalition government. "People who live abroad imagine that we have sunshine all year round, but that's not the case."

Temperatures have dropped below freezing in much of the country this winter, while snow fell in central Athens this month.
STRATOS PARADIAS, HEAD OF THE HELLENIC PROPERTY FEDERATION THAT REPRESENTS PROPERTY OWNERS, SAYS MANY CITY DWELLERS HAVE BEEN LEFT WITHOUT ANY CENTRAL HEATING. "THERE ARE SOME WHO ARE COMPLETELY UNABLE TO PAY THE COSTS DUE TO THE CRISIS," HE SAID.

BUT EVEN THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD OIL, OR THE SLIGHTLY CHEAPER NATURAL GAS, CAN BE LEFT SHIVERING, DUE TO THE COMMUNAL NATURE OF EACH APARTMENT BLOCK'S CENTRAL HEATING. IT MEANS THAT IF ENOUGH OWNERS WANT TO GO WITHOUT, THEIR DECISION IS BINDING FOR ALL RESIDENTS.
While electric heating is another option, most consumers perceive wood as cheaper - especially since household power bills are set to increase about 10 percent this year.

It's hard to estimate how many people have abandoned heating oil for wood. Distributors say sales of heating oil are nearly 80 percent down this winter, and new firewood yards have mushroomed all over Athens.

Obama's popularity and his vilifying class warfare, is similar to
Hitler's popularity and his scapegoating of the Jews.
Hitler was only popular among the rabid right and their hatred of the Jews, liberals, etc. Amongst the general population he never got more than 38% of the vote.
