Radiation Of The Pacific Ocean In The Next 10 Years - Japan Nuclear Disaster

Christopher Dorner: New False Flag Op Underway to Demonize Police, Military Vets & the 2nd Amendment? — Manhunt For Fired L.A. Cop Who Endorses Gun Ban While Vowing to Murder LAPD Cops & Officials Who Wronged Him

“If you had a well regulated AWB, this would not happen. The time is now to re-institute a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle? Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national AWB.” – from Christopher Dorner’s manifesto

I didn’t get up today with plans to write this story, but a reader and friend of SGTreport brought this to my attention, and it must be covered. This is uncomfortable and frightening stuff:

Is there another false flag OP underway in the LA area at this very moment, or is this rampage and publicly posted diatribe truly that of a former cop and military man who has gone off the reservation? That’s the question we must ask as the Fresno Bee reports today, Massive manhunt on for former L.A. cop accused of killing 3.

SOUTH KOREA MAY PRE-EMPTIVELY STRIKE NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR TEST SITE "SHOULD SITUATION CHANGE", MINIATURIZED BOMB SMALL ENOUGH FOR ICBMS NEARING COMPLETION


The chairman of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff weighed into speculation about North Korea's imminent nuclear test on Wednesday, guessing that the North is preparing to test a "pre-hydrogen" nuclear weapon.

Gen. Jung Seung-jo made the guess in a report to the National Assembly's Defense Committee on Wednesday.

The weapon could be a "boosted fission weapon," a type of nuclear bomb that uses a small amount of fusion fuel to increase the yield of a fission reaction, he said.

Solomon Islands tsunami death toll rises: 3,500 homeless, 10 dead

THE death toll from the tsunami that swept across Ndende in the eastern Solomon Islands on Wednesday has risen to 10.

The reopening of Lata airport enabled medical staff to arrive to support local hospital workers, and National Disaster Management Office experts to start assessing the damage.

The tsunami was triggered by a magnitude-8 underwater earthquake. About 3500 people have lost their homes in several villages on Ndende, the main island of the Santa Cruz group.

Downing Street calls 'horsemeat' summit

French investigators believe suppliers to British retailers may have deliberately substituted beef for horsemeat in several products.

Oak Harbor councilman tries to take away a vet's weapon: 160 armed citizens show up in protest, have anti-constitutional laws abolished (Hear, hear!)



A group of 160 citizens, many if not most of whom were armed, confronted government officials Tuesday who had attempted to have a wounded Army veteran kicked out of a meeting due to the fact that he carried a gun. The veteran has a state license for concealed carry, which means that he was carrying the gun to the meeting within the boundaries of the law.

The story of the incident, which occurred at a city council meeting in Oak Harbor, Wash., made national news three weeks ago.

But Tuesday evening the citizens of Oak Harbor, Wash. showed up to confront its city council and demand that the council rescind a local ordinance prohibiting guns from being carried on public property. The citizens also wished to show their support for Lucas Yonkman, the Army veteran who showed up at the previous meeting armed.

Automatic spending cuts would hurt Americans, White House says

Automatic government spending cuts due to go into effect March 1 unless Congress acts to prevent them would bite deeply into programs affecting many Americans, such as law enforcement, small business assistance, food safety and tax collection, the White House said on Friday.

The administration urged Congress to blunt the effect of the reductions, which the White House said would slash non-defense programs by 9 percent across the board and defense programs by 13 percent, the White House said.

Lebanon, Hezbollah ‘upping preparedness for attack’

The Lebanese Army and the terrorist group Hezbollah are reportedly upping their preparedness in the southern part of Lebanon in response to flyovers by the Israeli Air Force this past week.

The pan-Arab London-based daily al-Quds al-Arabi reported Friday that Lebanese officials fear that an Israeli strike, similar to Israel’s alleged strike on Syrian targets last month, is imminent in light of multiple “mock raids.”

According to the report, there is also suspicion among Hezbollah’s ranks that Israel intends to kidnap one of the organization’s senior members. The paper cites sources in southern Lebanon who said the suspicion is based on increased Israeli threats, and Bulgaria’s blaming of a July bombing in Burgas — in which 5 Israelis were killed — on the Shiite terror group.

Lebanon claims Israel conducting more mock sorties

Israeli jets carried out a series of mock raids over Lebanon Thursday night, according to a Lebanon army statement issued Friday.

The report said Israeli fighter planes, accompanied by a reconnoissance drone, flew over Lebanese airspace for three hours and conducted mock sorties.

Similar incidents of IAF “violation of Lebanese sovereignty and resolution 1701″ were reported on Wednesday, when the fighter planes reportedly flew over the Litani River, a natural barrier that marked the northern lines of the IDF presence in Lebanon before Israel’s 2000 withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines.

Since Israel’s reported attack on a weapons convoy carrying advanced weapons from Syria to Lebanon last week, reports of Israeli jets flying over Lebanon have become increasingly common.

Vallejo Cop Punches Victim (US Soldier) for Complaining It Took Them 45 Minutes to Respond to His Call



Matt's thoughts:

People who think army or police will suddenly side with "the American people" when it all goes down may only be fooling themselves. 99% of police and army will side with Obama and the Federals, simply because in the end, they exist to follow orders, and the only people they will care about are themselves, and their immediate family who they'll move to the Federal side of the line so they can be safe. Anyone who boasts otherwise either hasn't put themselves into the mental situation where they have to suddenly defy the rest of their combat unit, essentially a second family, or are lying. These are the kinds of individuals who urinate on dead bodies and hurl animals off of cliffs for fun, and have no problem slapping around a fellow soldier. I have zero confidence anyone will help the people in the end but themselves, and God. Militias are now the only answer.

Fifty killed in Syria bombing: monitor group

More than 50 workers at a military factory in central Syria were killed in a bombing earlier this week, an opposition watchdog which monitors violence in Syria said on Friday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 54 people died in Wednesday's explosion which struck their bus as they were preparing to return home at the end of their shift, and the number could rise further.

The Observatory said 11 of the victims from the bombing in Buraq, about 10 km (six miles) south of the city of Hama, were women. The workers were from cities of Homs, Hama and the town of Salamiyah.

Sixx King Wears Ku Klux Klan robes in public to highlight gun violence in African-American community

Sixx King, 35, wore the controversial garment to make his argument that although the KKK had killed 3,446 black people in its 86 years of existence, gun violence in the African-American community kills that number in six months. Mr King said that he had worn the offensive garments to bring attention to a grave issue and to publicize his documentary about gun violence.

Mounting evidence of a link between GlaxoSmithKline's Pandemrix flu shot and a spike in narcolepsy cases among children in Europe is putting one of the vaccine's key ingredients, AS03, under intense scrutiny.

The ingredient is one of a class of pharmaceuticals known as adjuvants, or boosters, designed to turbo charge the potency of a vaccine and the body's immune response to it.

AS03 was widely used in Europe during the 2009-2010 H1N1 flu pandemic and is also contained in a GSK adjuvanted flu vaccine which in November last year became the first of its kind to be recommended for approval by the normally adjuvant-wary United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Paratroopers mutiny in Mali capital Bamako, gunfire heard

Heavy gunfire erupted in the west of Mali's capital Bamako on Friday, as government forces exchanged fire with mutinous paratroopers, military sources and witnesses said.

Government forces sealed off the area around the paratroopers' base, as reinforcements arrived to quell the mutiny which was protesting disciplinary measures against some of the unit's members. Smoke was seen rising from the camp.

China, Japan engage in new invective over disputed isles

China and Japan engaged on Friday in a fresh round of invective over military movements near a disputed group of uninhabited islands, fuelling tension that for months has bedeviled relations between the Asian powers.

An increasingly muscular China has been repeatedly at odds with others in the region over rival claims to small clusters of islands, most recently with fellow economic giant Japan which accused a Chinese navy vessel of locking radar normally used to aim weapons on a Japanese naval ship in the East China Sea.

A skateboarder who was filmed triggering a speed camera as he hurtled down a South African road is reportedly facing prosecution.

The man - believed to be Decio Lourenco - celebrated after he set off the camera in a 60kph (37mph) zone in a YouTube video which has been watched more than 200,000 times.

He apparently hit speeds of up to 110kph (68mph) on Kloof Nek Road in Cape Town, recorded with a GPS device fitted to one of his feet.

The former police officer at the centre of a manhunt after a shooting spree that left three people dead has issued a killing list of "high value targets".

Officers have been sent to protect more than 40 potential targets, including police officers and their families.

Jason Richards and Ben Hope: Aamir Siddiqi Hitmen Jailed For 40 Years

Two hitmen who stabbed an innocent schoolboy to death by mistake have been jailed for a minimum of 40 years.

Ben Hope, 39, and Jason Richards, 38, both from Cardiff, were each paid £1,000 in "blood money" to murder a middle-aged family man who owed money to a shady businessman.

But the "hit" went wrong when the balaclava-clad killers, who were high on drugs, went to the wrong address in Roath, Cardiff, in April 2010 and murdered teenager Aamir Siddiqi by mistake.
