(Coast2Coast) – According to Richard C. Hoagland, insider sources in BP and in U.S. Government say that there is a Gas Bubble 15-20 Miles across 10+ feet high near BP’s oil well head in Gulf of Mexico. It may cause an explosion with Apocalyptic proportions in weeks or months. The pressure at the well is 100.000 PSI and when the Gas explodes it will be like Mt. St. Helens going off underwater. It will create a Cloud of Death and a Tsunami Wave traveling at 400-600 MPH sinking all Vessels around the area as well as drive all hazardous materials including the Oil inland. Continue reading →
(June 15) – Prison Planet editor Paul Joseph Watson sits in for Alex for the first hour of today’s show to discuss the Bob Etheridge controversy, the ongoing BP oil spill and the new war propaganda surrounding the “discovery” of mineral deposits in Afghanistan.

(KurtNimmo) – Remember when Rand Paul said he opposed aspects of the Voting Rights Act? Paul was taken to the woodshed by the corporate media and made out to be a racist for his opposition. Gremlins came out of the woodwork and lambasted him, including well-paid gremlins over at the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post.
“This is the worst possible way Paul could have introduced himself to the nation at this particular moment,” Greg Sargent wrote after MSNBC’s Maddow sideswiped Paul. “It comes, of course, at a time when the Tea Partiers are adamantly insisting their movement hasn’t been hijacked by intolerants and extremists. It comes as the GOP is trying to shake its image as a regional, culturally-backward party.”
In the enlightened state of New York the Voting Rights Act is now being used to accomplish what some liberals might consider culturally-forward to their “progressive” way of looking at things — allowing certain residents to vote more than once in order to fix the result of an election.

Daily Bell: How about America? How are America’s finances?
Doug Casey: The era of one trillion dollar plus annual deficits is definitely here. And those are just the official deficits, which are going to be running a trillion or a trillion and a half dollars per year for the indefinite future. And on top of that you’ve got $100 trillion of unfunded liabilities of Social Security, the Medicare, the Medicaid. In a few years, you are going to have Obama-care, which is going to make the problem considerably worse. Then add on the probable federal bailouts of numerous bankrupt states like New York and California. And then hundreds of billions more for the FDIC, which is also totally bankrupt. Just like Fannie and Freddie. Then the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corp., will be hundreds of billions more – that hasn’t hit the front pages yet. General Electric is just like a gigantic, 30-1 leveraged hedge fund; that’s going to be bailed out too! Amtrak, which despite its outrageously high fares, continues to loose a couple billion dollars a year; of course that’s just chicken feed in today’s context. And of course these wars – and supporting military bases in over 100 countries…
(Telegraph) – National power grids could overheat and air travel severely disrupted while electronic items, navigation devices and major satellites could stop working after the Sun reaches its maximum power in a few years.
Senior space agency scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.
In a new warning, Nasa said the super storm would hit like “a bolt of lightning” and could cause catastrophic consequences for the world’s health, emergency services and national security unless precautions are taken. Read entire article
(HollyDeyo) – From terrorist attacks and hurricane evacuations to submarine base and nuclear power plant mishaps; bomb blasts, plane crashes, dirty bombs, hazmat spills, earthquakes, medical disasters and train derailments, America is on high alert. Over the past several weeks to the present, more than 35 major disaster drills are taking place throughout America. It makes one wonder what’s prompting all of these emergency exercises and planning venues. Was it confusion over Gov. Palin’s oft-quoted “drill, baby, drill?” No, it’s recognition that the Feds are leaving ordinary citizens to fend for themselves. States aren’t happy about this
Proof? No one has been more vociferous than Gov. Jindal pleading, imploring for help for Louisiana. Obama’s ears appear to be stuffed with cotton for all the good it’s done. For weeks now, pleas for practical assistance have gone unanswered. Continue reading →
(PaulWatson) – President Barack Obama will tonight dispense with all restraint and fully exploit the BP oil spill to push the nightmare globalist agenda of a green economy, a carbon tax on human emissions, and an army of environmental enforcers to implement total big government tyranny.
(WashingtonsBlog) – On September 19, 2001, CBS reported:
Sources tell CBS News that the afternoon before the attack, alarm bells were sounding over unusual trading in the U.S. stock options market.
An extraordinary number of trades were betting that American Airlines stock price would fall.
The trades are called “puts” and they involved at least 450,000 shares of American. But what raised the red flag is more than 80 percent of the orders were “puts”, far outnumbering “call” options, those betting the stock would rise. Continue reading →
(LondonIndependent) – A growing number of scientists are going where politicians fear to tread by calling for a wider public debate on the sensitive issue of the global human population, which is set to rise from the present 6.8 billion to perhaps 9 billion by 2050.
Lord Rees, the president of the Royal Society, brought the subject up in his excellent Reith Lectures; Sir David Attenborough has become a champion of those who believe population has been relegated as an environmental issue; and more recently Professor Aubrey Manning, presenter of the BBC’s Earth Story, has stated that the sheer number of humans on the planet is the greatest menace the world faces.

(LRCBlog) – ‘Bloody Sunday’ Report Finally Released
Like all imperial crimes, the British occupation of Ireland has been built on mass murder and countless lies. Well, reality has finally caught up with one of them: all of the Irish victims massacred by members of the 1st Battalion of the British Parachute Regiment on “Bloody Sunday” 38 years ago were innocent and unarmed.
What’s more, “many of the soldiers involved ‘knowingly put forward false accounts in order to seek to justify their firing,’” the newly released Bloody Sunday Inquiry Report finds. Will the murderers, who lied to cover up their crimes, be prosecuted? Or will the incident just go down as another example of collateral damage in the service of empire? Read More Here
(SMH) – Wanted by the US: WikiLeaks founder keeps his head down
It reads like a James Bond novel: an enigmatic white-haired computer hacker; a soldier turned whistleblower; secret government correspondence; and the world’s most powerful country desperate to contain the situation.

(PalSolidarity) – Wheat harvest met with live ammunition in Gaza “buffer zone”
Israeli forces attacked women farmworkers and international human rights activists with heavy gunfire during three days’ wheat harvest in the southern Gaza Strip. The Israel-imposed “buffer zone” illegally claims over 30% of Gaza’s arable farmland. In Khoza’a village, east of Khan Yunis, substantial wheat remains unharvested despite severe poverty and food shortages, as a result of the attacks. Read More Here

BP’s main rivals believe safety shortfalls are behind the Gulf oil disaster, saying Gulf of Mexico oil spill could have been prevented had the London-based company followed industry-wide safety procedures.

(AllGov) – BP Refuses to Allow Scientists to Test Oil Spill Samples
Scientists in Florida are concerned that large plumes of oil floating beneath the surface in the Gulf of Mexico originated from the Deepwater Horizon spill, and want to test their samples against oil collected by BP. But the oil corporation is refusing to cooperate.
University of South Florida scientist David Hollander said he was “just taken aback” by BP’s unwillingness to assist in a scientific inquiry into the trouble. “It was a little unsettling.” Read More Here

(TheAtlantic) – What Happened in May?
The economic reports for May are rolling in, and so far they’re pretty ugly. In the first four months of 2010, it seemed pretty clear that a recovery was upon us, though it was shaping up to be a slow one. Last month, however, the economy seemed to take a step back. Was it a blip, or a sign of a double-dip to come?
Even though we don’t yet have full information to evaluate May, here’s what we do know: Read More Here
(MailOnline) – Nightmare vision for Europe as EU chief warns ‘democracy could disappear’ in Greece, Spain and Portugal
In an extraordinary briefing to trade union chiefs last week, Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso set out an ‘apocalyptic’ vision in which crisis-hit countries in southern Europe could fall victim to military coups or popular uprisings as interest rates soar and public services collapse because their governments run out of money.
The stark warning came as it emerged that EU chiefs have begun work on an emergency bailout package for Spain which is likely to run into hundreds of billions of pounds. Read More Here
(PaulWatson) – Petrified that a couple of college kids with a flip camera can change the course of a state election, the corporate media and the neo-lib establishment has gone into overdrive in an attempt to spin the Bob Etheridge assault controversy, with some even trying to turn reality on its head in claiming Etheridge was the one being assaulted.
Despite the fact that Etheridge’s shameful reaction to merely being asked, “Do you fully support the Obama agenda?” by a couple of unknown college kids has enraged Internet viewers across the board, the corporate clowns at MSNBC and the rest of the libtard apologists immediately went to work in a lame effort to absolve Etheridge of blame, after being ordered to do so by talking points issued by a Democratic Party official.

This column was initially released last December. Without a doubt, this has been one of my most requested columns. So, in response to the large number of readers who have asked me to re-release this column, I do so today. And in doing so, I have added some new material to the original column.
One does not have to be a prophet to know that we are on the precipice of some potentially catastrophic–or at the very least, challenging–days. In fact, most of us are already in challenging days, and some are already enduring catastrophic events. That is, if one would call being out of work, losing one’s home, facing life-threatening medical conditions without any prospect of medical insurance, several families being forced to live in one house due to homes being foreclosed, etc., catastrophic.

(Telegraph) – Soldiers form loyal “Bands of Brothers” fighting and dying for each other because they have the same instincts that cause mothers to ferociously protect their newborns, a study suggests.
Researchers have found that in the heat of battle they have the same chemicals running through their bloodstreams as protective mothers, meaning they develop incredibly strong bonds with each other but become extremely aggressive to outsiders.
The effect resolves around the hormone oxytocin which is released at times of stress and when people socialise with each other. Continue reading →
