Goodbye Mr. Boehner!

In MY Life time  . There were (1)>> 3 Speakers of the House that have had some not so minimal impact in American politics  . First as a young boy growing up in the Reagan era . I remember  it was  liberal Democrat and influential Thomas Phillip "TipO'Neill, Jr. who used to have great temper tantrums in Congress . Arguing, name-calling and throwing heated rhetoric around. Mr. O'Neill may seeded many generations ahead through six government shutdowns under Ronald Reagan  . That "curse" of Tip O'Neill may have incarnated into of then-Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) as Speaker of the House.Who cased to much government dysfunction as a  (2)>>Tea Party favorite , that later the Tea Party movement its'self  gave Boehner the boot. Mr.  Boehner for the most of his hard rhetoric was too tight lipped , and every time he spoke at a press conference he sounded like someone who read from a scripted dialog . " We will repeal Obamacare ............". Just hearing him speak was bad enough , but he was so hard line, that even though  he may have had some points against President Obama , he actually made Mr. Obama look good . I remember when Mr.
IN the 5 years Speaker of the House ,
John Boehner had a lot to cry

Boehner said this about Obama,  (4)>> “No, because I believe that if the president continues to act on his own he is going to poison the well. When you play with matches, you take the risk of burning yourself, and he is going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path. The American people made it clear Election Day. They want to get things done, and they don’t want the president acting on a unilateral basis.”. Two years ago he wanted to impeach Mr. Obama . He failed . With the announced retirement of Boehner, we turn the page on five years of wasted conservative opportunity in the United States Congress.  For five years, Speaker Boehner has heard loudly and clearly from the people who gave him a Republican majority that they wanted conservative leadership. For five years, he has practiced surrender, capitulation, and compromise of conservative principles. He has repeatedly refused to use the “power of the purse” which gives the House the authority to defund so much that runs counter to conservative principles.  With a staggering majority in the House, he has behaved like the cowering leader of a minority party. BESIDES the CRYING . Of course, there's a history of Boehner crying. According to Politico, he's done it "during a tribute to golf legend Arnold Palmer, while listening to Irish music on St. Patrick's Day (Boehner is of German ancestry) and while singing "America the Beautiful," among other occasions." Of course he cried when he became Speaker of the House. NBC Philadelphia says Boehner's choked up at an unveiling of a Rosa Parks statue, during an event honoring the painter Constantino Brumidi. Boehner was kinda creepy , there were TMZ like reports that he is a alcoholic . The  purported alcoholism, (there’s even a blog called DrunkBoehner dedicated to chronicling his meltdowns)  Somewhere in between, Politico reported that Boehner had turned on the old barroom charm, jabbing a finger at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, and said, “Go fuck yourself.” A longtime confidante of Hillary Clinton dismissed House Speaker John Boehner as "louche, alcoholic, and lazy" in an email to Clinton's personal account that was released by the State Department.  If that was enough , now I could see why Mr. Boehner resigned the Office of the Speaker of the house. This is of course an old story about John’s alleged affair, but I just love the title of the article: “John Boehner Sex Probe”Capitol Hill insiders and political bloggers have been buzzing about an upcoming New York Times probe - detailing an alleged affair that the 61-year-old married father of two had with pretty Washington lobbyist (3)>> LISBETH LYONS. As Boehner exits , there could be a ray of hope for Congress. Boehner, known for habitually smoking in his speaker office, announced last week he will resign at the end of October from his post and seat in Congress. Asked about his impending departure, Reid recalled his first meeting with Boehner. "I'm going to miss the cigarette smoke," Reid told reporters on Tuesday. "To remind everyone: The first meeting I had with John Boehner, I could tell he was nervous, so I said, 'Go ahead and light up,' and he did and he’s been lit every meeting I’ve gone to."

(1)>> The three Speakers of the House , namely Tip O'Neill. Nancy Pelosi who may not be all there , some have accused of being senile . Yes, of coarse Mr. Boehner.(2)>>This isn’t the first time Boehner’s friends Tea Party friends have expressed their frustration with his antics.  Back in late 2010, the Ohio Liberty Council blasted Boehner for his secret bid to do away with the Congressional Ethics Office. (3)>> DailyKos published a diary titled "Maybe it's time for the media to say what they know about Boehner", in which he told us of the alleged affair between John Boehner and Lisbeth Lyons, who is the Vice President for Government Affairs for the American Printers Association, as reported by The National Enquirer months ago.So where is the media follow up stories to the allegations of John Boehner's reported affairs? I know we can hardly expect John Boehner to launch a ethics inquiry against himself, but it sure would be nice to have an independent investigative media in this country that could do that kind of thing, wouldn't it? Is there a compelling tweet, or a blue stained dress, or even a wide stance that could act as proof of the claims against House Speaker John Boehner? (4)>> Mr. Boehner's ethics have long been questioned , Boehner has a history of unethical, behavior as a congressman, so it is curious why there was no investigation, or at least probing questions, into why in less than a year a project few knew existed was suddenly paramount to Boehner; or why within a year he suddenly was heavily invested in Canada’s tar sand. According to Boehner’s 2010 financial disclosure, he invested in seven different Canadian tar sand companies to the tune of between $15,001 to $50,000 in each of the foreign entities. All of the companies are in the tar sand oil industry that Boehner stands to profit handsomely from if KeystoneXL is built.

A POPE for all Religions and Politics ? .

President Obama , and Pope Francis ,
both share a common philosophy .
yet Pope Francis is a 
more successful politician .
Is it possible that the Roman Catholic Church has entered a new phase with Pope Francis ? Let us be honest . First , (#)>>  the Papacy has dominated the world political system for over a thousand years . Pope Francis may not be the first Pope to visit the United States . However Pope Francis is vary unique. Much of  Pope Francis’ unorthodox views on the church are making waves. We have for the first time a NEW AGE POPE ?. The Pope's visit sounds to me that he's hammering America , on a political level he's trying to dictate policy by melting the wall that separates church and state . The Roman Catholic church has beaten all the rival Christian denominations on this . Hypocritically every American  politician of whatever religious denomination addresses every pope as "holy father" , sure it's out of respect , but The stunning contrast between the Pope - a real, live ideological Christian - and the hundreds of fake, pretend Republican Christians in  (2)>> Congress will be glaringly apparent. Pope Francis, in the first-ever papal address to a Joint Meeting of Congress, delivered a simple but passionate plea for humanity -- urging lawmakers to protect "every human life" and calling for a united response of "hope and healing, of peace and justice" for a world racked by violence and unrest. Speaking at the center of American power Thursday morning, the pontiff tackled urgent topics spanning immigration, family, the death penalty, climate change, extremism, religious freedom and the refugee crisis. Specifically, he joined American bishops in urging the abolition of capital punishment, and said Congress has a "role to play" in addressing global warming.  My (3)>>  OPINION , Pope Francis message needed to be said in our congress , it's just a message to wake up our sleepy congress to any respectful form of humility in a divided nation . The Pope's message to serving the important people in our society; supporting greed and the accumulation of wealth are their calling. Listen as they redefine poverty programs as "handouts", and man caused global climate change as "only a theory". I am happy that the Pope is speaking to them, but I do not think that they will commit to his cause. First of all Pope Francis just is not right about this During his speech before Congress, Pope Francis implored U.S. politicians to embrace migrants seeking to come into America.“Our world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since the second World War,” the pope said, according to USA Today, including “thousands of persons (who) are led to travel north in search of a better life. The inequality of physical wealth needs to be addressed, but the those poor in spirit need compassion and healing perhaps even more. The pope is not here to just redistribute what is Caesar's, but to provide an opportunity to heal all hearts through attention to those who have "less" in our midst. The Pope made some obvious suggestions that I can't agree with , first he wants the American congress to welcome all the illegals . He wants our system to open up with all these people who are here illegally out of charity . Sure that's good , but America sadly can't even take care of it's Veterans  who served this country , yet pick up the tab for people who don't deserve it. Pope Francis often speaks about the dangers of unbridled capitalism, but at the same time he lectures the capitalistic countries of the world that it is their responsibility to accept the wretched refuse of other economic systems. Francis sets his new philosophy for the church in In his new encyclical, Laudato Si.  focuses mostly on environmental degradation and how it affects the poor. But over the course of more than 100 pages, he also covers a grab bag of other topics, including abortion, genetic manipulation, and the limits of technological progress. This segues into a surprisingly bitter critique of the failures of the media and the negative effects of online interactions, which he sees as fundamentally related: They both undermine human relationships, Opposition to “fundamentalism” and “ideology” has been a consistent Francis theme, both during his trip to the United States and before. “No religion is immune from forms of individual delusion or ideological extremism,” he said during his speech to the U.S. Congress on Thursday. “Nationalistic or falsely universalist ideologies … [are] capable of perpetrating tremendous atrocities,” he said during his speech to the United Nations on Friday. This is directed inwardly as much as outwardly; Francis has warned Christians against being “rigid” in their beliefs. But it’s also clearly a sentiment specific to our time, when religion is sometimes associated with beheadings and terrorist attacks and extreme violence. This kind of pluralism is relatively new to the Roman Catholic Church. Its first major venture into inter-religious dialogue was only 50 years ago, at the Second Vatican Council. As Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove noted at the 9/11 ceremony, the 1965 document Nostra Aetate marked the first time the Church had ever really made a statement on its relationship with other religions, and specifically Islam and Judaism. By no means have Catholic leaders been perfect partners in inter-religious dialogue in the decades following this document, but the contemporary Church is strikingly different from the Church past. The history is almost too infamous to have to recount: the Crusades, the Inquisition, Christian anti-Semitism during the Holocaust. Either case the Catholic Church has entered a new phase with Francis . 

(1)>> NEW AGE POPE. In the book-length interview "El Jesuita", Sergio Rubin and Francesca Ambrogetti asked Cardinal Bergoglio in 1999 whether he thought modern people tended toward "religion a la carte," a phenomenon which has been called "Cafeteria Catholicism". Bergoglio noted that this "is a very common trend that corresponds to the modern consumerism. Some choose a mass by how the priest preaches. But two months later they say that what doesn't work well is the choir and then change again. There is a reduction of the religious to the aesthetic... They treat religion as a consumer product, and this is very linked, in my opinion, to some vague theism carried out within the parameters of the "New Age", where personal satisfaction, 'relaxation', and 'feeling good' are mixed in. This is being seen especially in large cities, but is not just a phenomenon that occurs among the educated. In poor areas, in the slums, sometimes they seek an evangelical pastor, because 'He reaches me.' Pope: After recently referring to his "God," whom he believes is "the ultimate source of life," Pope Francis proclaimed that "the earth" is "a source of life for the entire human family." The UN's New Age people who are largely panentheists believe in and promote a new age, neo-pagan syncretism that honors Mother Earth "as a sourse of life."  (#)>> The Catholic Church and the papacy are by far the longest-lived institutions of Western civilization. Francis' predecessors have played a diplomatic role in the political life of the West since before the emergence of all the modern nation-states. Popes tangled with King Otto and Charlemagne. The Popes called the Crusades. The papacy has survived all manner of intrigue, even when Napoleon I had Pope Pius VII kidnapped and dragged over the Alps to Fontainebleau Castle. It's a longevity that any nation or throne would envy. To welcome the Roman pontiff into Congress is to be entered into this long chain of history. (2)>> Congress.  It is quite unfortunate that not only the Evangelicals members of Congress are popier than the pope, but far too many Catholic ones as well. If a pope's teachings fits into their world view, they applaud, but if a pope's teachings are science based, they cry foul and insist - all of a sudden - on the separation of Church and State. For them, the earth is still flat and the center of the universe, despite the Holy See having accepted Galileo into their midst - albeit quite late. Sure I am saying that . Some consider the Pope to be the Anti- Christ , some say that hes part of some Illuminati  some conspiracy . I can only say that the only conspiracy is in congress with it's Freemasons. I doubt the Pope will have much influence on the right wing ideologues of the Republican party. They attempt to cloak their ideology in Christianity, but their disregard for the poor, for immigrants, for the environment are the very antithesis of Christianity. Their hearts are hardened and even this great man will be unable to soften them.(3)>> OPINION . Francis called for the United Nations to promote a "worldwide ethical mobilization" of solidarity with the poor in a new spirit of generosity.He said a more equal form of economic progress can be had through "the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the state, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society."Francis had a similar message to the World Economic Forum in January and in h is apostolic exhortation "The Joy of the Gospel." That document, which denounced trickle-down economic theories as unproven and naive, provoked criticism in the U.S. that he was Marxist.Francis has denied he's Marxist, and spent years in Argentina battling Marxist excesses of liberation theology. But he has said from the outset that he wants a church that "is poor and for the poor" and ministers to the most marginal of society. (4)>> FrancisFrancis, Bishop of Rome, should invite all the major religious leaders from around the world, to a meeting to discuss, and hopefully agree on, how to tackle the world's major problems. The root cause, I believe, is greed, whether it be for power, or just money.The result, gross inequity, poverty, slavery, climate change, and mass extinctions. We must all live within the sustainable limits of out planet.

Ahmed's TIMELY Lawsuit .

Did Ahmed Mohamed's homemade clock ,
create all the rage in the
name of a hoax?

There is a good way to make money in America . Ahmed's father may have planned it all.

With the whole media buzzing with this story : (1)>> Ahmed 's Clock . I could no help it but to say something .  This story for me is a good example of how to become a celebrity , and get lots of money sent to your bank account . How to do this ? , easy just perpetrate a hoax . As the media goes in this country . The "conspiracy" media needed a 'hero' , or needed to make a hero . So comes Ahmed is a lovable kid who was victimized by a bigoted " Islamo-phobic" American society. (2)>>The spectacle constructed around him has served both the liberal establishment, which wants us to (believe) cower before the White Guilt cudgel, and Muslims, who want us to let our guard down to facilitate their next major terror attack. The narrative of the put-upon 14-year-old Muslim who was so clever that he built a clock, but who was punished by bigoted Texans when he brought it to school, has been used exceedingly aggressively to advance these objectives. It's hard not to think that there is anything but "suspicious" about little Ahmed's clock .Was Ahmed, if he’s a victim at all, a victim of racism, Islamo -phobia, or of school’s anti-male zero-tolerance disciplinary policies? That the kid didn’t make a clock at all. He made something look as bomb-like as possible, on purpose, and brought it to school. All his teacher told him was, don’t walk around with it in case it worries people. But Ahmed did that anyhow. He took it to another class where the alarm went off, making that teacher suspicious, just like he knew it would. Then he was passive aggressive with the cops, who immediately pegged him as a hoaxer. What if, just like  (3)>> his dad, a crazy fake sheikh who ran for president of Sudan and who participates in incendiary stunts, he’s a media hound? Honestly There are many interwoven things in this story. First the school may have over-reacted , but on the one side there is something suspicious about the whole event , if you connect the dots it leads right to the boys father . What the media did not say is that Ahmed , is about when he took the device to his next class. He had NO battery backup on the alarm clock, just the AC power cord that was originally with the alarm clock. This means he physically plugged the device in the wall and set the timer to go off IN THE CLASS, purposely. "It obviously doesn't look like a bomb" line is absurd. If Ahmed (or anyone, for that matter) tried to take that clock into the White House on a tour, what do you think the Secret Service would do? If he tried to take that clock on an airplane, how do you think the TSA would handle it? Would those responses be justified? If so, they why isn't the security response at a school justified? Also, does a pressure cooker "look" like a bomb? Is the average person familiar with what actual (not movie prop) bombs look like? My guess is "No."

The truth it seems is that Ahmed was not arrested because his teacher thought he had a bomb. He was arrested for violating a Texas law making it illegal to bring a “hoax bomb” into school. But the arrest appears to have been orchestrated by Ahmed’s family who understood the law and knew how to troll for a reaction. Except most of the facts were wrong. He didn’t build the clock, and the school had reason to believe it looked like a bomb. Not to mention, his engineering teacher flat out instructed him not to show anyone else, and if you have to attempt to make something look LESS suspicious to take it to school - you just dont take it to school . In a big enough world, improbable events occur. Yes, it could be that the son of a multi-millionaire presidential candidate and attention whore happened to be wearing a NASA shirt on the same day he was arrested for showing his suitcase clock to several teachers, and that the arrest made him so sad that his family started taking joyful selfies.Or it could be a public relations coup by an attention-hungry father ?.

(1)>> Ahmed 's Clock .  The kid didn't build a clock, Radio Shack built the clock. The kid just moved the internal workings of the store bought clock into a 8" briefcase looking pencil box.Anthony at Art Voice has taken down the situation thoroughly (link via Sean Davis). Anthony did his homework, studied the photos, and found that the clock Ahmed allegedly built, was originally sold at Radio Shack. Pictured is the clock Ahmed put into a case to bring to school: a Micronta 63 756, sold by Radio Shack. That’s right, Ahmed didn’t even bother to remove the silkscreened logo and part number Micronta printed onto the circuit board. Anthony also points out the other killer element: Why would you put a clock in a pencil case? It has a lid, that closes, meaning you’ll never actually be able to read the display. Anthony’s conclusion logically follows: 
Because, is it possible, that maybe, just maybe, this was actually a hoax bomb? A silly prank that was taken the wrong way? That the media then ran with, and everyone else got carried away? Maybe there wasn’t even any racial or religious bias on the parts of the teachers and police.
(2)>> The spectacle.    It's funny how people applaud for a kid that didn't do anything special (he's 14 y/o FFS, not 4) because he is Muslim. Any other 14 y/o white kid would be ignored, but this kid is hailed as the new Tesla. (3)>>  his dad, a crazy fake sheikh,  Ahmed’s experience perpetuated by his ‘hoax clock’ will have a lucrative ending. Shrug…perhaps that was the intention all along, not the nefarious scenario I outlined of above.Although, deception is deception, regardless of the motive behind it, and Muslim Islamic apologists including Ahmed’s father; Mohamed ElHassan Mohamed are deceptive to their core. It is also being reported that in addition to the prayer vigil and the presidential invitation, Mohamed has reportedly been offered internships and jobs by numerous companies, including Twitter and Facebook.Many are pointing out that the incident seems a trifle staged to fit the agenda of the groups pushing to publicize it, such as the Muslim lobbying group The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).A little digging has revealed that Mohamed’s father, Mohamed ElHassan Mohamed, is a known activist who has engaged in several stunts to call out what he has perceived to be anti-Islamic activity. The New York Daily NewsOne of the earliest instances of the standout citizen making national news was in 2011, when he sensationally stood up to an anti-Islamic pastor and defended the Koran as its defense attorney. That mock trial at a Florida church ended with the book’s burning, to ElHassan’s claimed shock. In an interview with the Washington Post at the time, the devoted Muslim said he’d take on Rev. Terry Jones’ challenge because the holy book teaches that Muslims should engage in peaceful dialogue with Christians. And now the plot thickens. In what has become one of the most egregious of the faked hate narratives, the bomb hoax clockster has a family with a history of supremacist stunts. Also in 2011, ElHassan debated Robert Spencer on “Does Islam Respect Human Rights?” Clearly, he was trying to score against a famous “Islamophobe” and thus win a name for himself.  ElHassan has been looking for publicity and chances to fight against “Islamophobia” for a considerable period. In 2010, and again this year, the busy dad was nominated and ran for president of his native North African country from his home in Texas.“Mr. ElHassan is no stranger to adversity and experienced hardship firsthand, and during his lifetime has cultivated a deep sense of humanitarianism, tolerance and patience,” his latest campaign’s website read.He further credited a Sufi spiritual leader and mentor in Africa for inspiring him with “wisdom and leadership.”Today, ElHassan serves as a mentor at Jack E. Singley Academy High School in Irving and also as the vice president of the National Reform Party in Sudan, the Gazette reported.

California Drought & El Niño.

The last few years high pressure has
dominated the western part of
the North Pacific.
It's official as I read yesterday . Our California drought is the worst in 500 years ! After four years of drought, California’s snowpack levels have already been declared the lowest since records began about a century ago. Now with new information gleaned from tree-ring data, scientists think that California’s snowpack is the lowest it’s been in over 500 years—and maybe even 1000. Who knows precisely ? Even if accurate , then again our state has had "winters" have been a oddball kind . The years between 2012 -2014 have been the warmest winters any native California's have seen . For Climate Changers they'll hit the panic button . In between those years that California was high and dry with mild -warm winters , the entire eastern part of the United States was hit with the "coldest" , blizzard like weather even seen. It';s sort of the flip side of the coin . So we here in California want warm water in out Pacific coast . (1)>>  HELL NO! The warm ocean water is the primary culprit to the California drought .The idea is that a massive column of warm water, 300 feet deep and 1,000 miles across, has been occupying more or less the same location in the Pacific Ocean for more than two years. The warm spot changes shape occasionally and has drifted closer to the West Coast, but its most dangerous feature is its ability to stubbornly dominate a large space.According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the problems started with the ocean-atmosphere interaction known as La Niña, which parked a high-pressure system just off of the West Coast in 2011. That high-pressure system had several effects. First, it rerouted storms that were heading toward the western United States, depriving California and the West of precipitation. It also changed the direction of the winds passing over the Pacific, diverting cold air that normally absorbs heat from
Equatorial Pacific Ocean temperature anomalies for
July in the Super El Niño years of 1982 & 1997
as compared to the same period in 2015.
Images adapted from
 NOAA's TAO Triton
the ocean. Hence, a warm ocean blob emerged. 
The reason: what appears to be a monster (2)>> El Niño in the making. The abnormally warm waters along the equator could mean a wet winter.There are no guarantees, but there have been portents. On one Saturday in July, San Diego got more rain than it got the entire month of January. Most of the "rainy" weather if any one meteorologist has paid any attention is below the "warm blob" that just sits off the coast of Bay Area Pacific Ocean . Warm water is no go to any weather , if the El Nino effect leaves the southern hemisphere moves slowly north of the equator  the weather changes drastically for South America . It has happened before in 2000 years, mostly laying waste to ancient Peruvian civilizations , The (3)>> Nazca and Moche peoples faced server droughts, and destructive weather conditions that basically wiped out those cultures within a 2000 year period. 
Cold water upwells to the surface at the equator to replace it. With El Niño the opposite occurs; the weakening or reversal of the trade winds means not only is heat transport out of the tropical surface ocean reduced, but so too is cold water upwelling at the equator. The weakened trade winds also allow the heat buried in deeper ocean layers in the west to surface and, as this bulge of warm water relaxes under the pull of gravity, to become smeared out across the Pacific. The temporary rise in sea surface temperature associated with these processes is why we now see mass bleaching episodes when El Niño arrives. 

Under Water Volcano's . A THEORY.

volcano, called Axial Seamount
(pictured), would erupt this year.
Near the Oregon coast . Coincidence?
You have all heard of the "warm water blob" that in the northern Pacific Ocean continues to grow and is having a profound effect upon marine animals from Mexico to Alaska, and may be altering weather across the continent.The crazy thing about it is that there has not been any serious scientific research on it . There have been many articles written about it .Nothing for me explains it more as to the cause of the warm water as originating ( or having to do with) underwater volcano's ?. This  mysterious blob  consists of  water that is roughly around 5 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the typical ocean temperature. While that may not seem like much of a difference, the circular patch of warmth, which started as a small patch of water off the coast of Alaska, has grown to 500 miles across,and is the biggest and longest-lasting temperature anomaly in the historical record. Most Oceanic warm blobs are caused by active undersea (4)>> volcanoes. The area along the California, Oregon , Washington and Alaska coasts it know as the "ring of fire". Which great plate tectonics are at work . (5)>> Axial Seamount, an active underwater volcano located about 300 miles (482 km) off the coast of Oregon and Washington, appears to be erupting, says a news release from Oregon State University.The eruption confirms the prediction by two scientists that such an event would take place there in 2015.Instead, I surmise that Axial Seamount, along with untold numbers of other underwater volcanoes, has been heating the seas for quite some time. That could explain the record-breaking warmth – the so-called “warm blob” – in many parts of the Pacific Ocean right now. Underwater volcanoes appear to be on the increase, leading to an increasing amount of unusually warm water in the oceans. In past times this has resulted in mass extinctions during magnetic reversals and ice ages dating back to hundreds of millions of years.

California Fires . a weather changing phenomenon .

NASA color imagery from
the Aqua satellite
 showing widespread wildfires over Northern
California (remapped into Google Earth).
The (7)>> raging fires in California are no friend to the state. The soot and particles drift upward into the atmosphere creating a natural kind of (6)>>Contrail , which are clouds formed condenses and freezes around small particles (aerosols) that exist in aircraft exhaust. Some of that water vapor comes from the air around the plane; and, some is added by the exhaust of the aircraft. The exhaust of an aircraft contains both gas (vapor) and solid particles. These particles spread that at times cool the atmosphere. Conspiracy theorists  believe that this is part of a secret government attempt at weather modification . Smoke from these fires is nothing to laugh at . The particles can either cool the ground air by blocking sunlight / heat , or raise the temperature by trapping the solar energy like a green house . Just this week we all saw a temperature falling below normal , so a low pressure system moved in and brought the state some needed rain . None the less as of September 18, 2015 the weekend will soon be blanketed with abnormally high temperatures with triple digits inland . Perhaps as a result of the fire and smoke ? Particulate matter contributes to an unhealthy air , not as much as Carbon Dioxide , but its lethal  cousin Carbon Monoxide .For the year, more than 6 million acres -- an area the size of New Jersey -- have been burned, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. For the first time, the U.S. Forest Service will spend more than half its budget, some $1.2 billion, on fighting fires on the vast acreage it manages from the nation’s capital. With 190 million acres of land under its control, the Forest Service is ill-equipped to manage land to prevent fires or protect property once blazes break out, This is an ongoing problem w/ the feds. They are responsible for not allowing people to get rid of dead trees, brush, etc. They deserve a lot of the blame. Hopefully before long, the fires will be out for good, but what about the next fire? And the one after that? It’s illogical to assume that fires this bad won’t happen again and again. It’s not a question of if, but when, the next disastrous wildfire will strike California and other wildfire-prone areas. (Of course, California isn’t the only place contending with wildfires.) . It is no coincidence that forest fires began to get worse just about the same time the modern "environmental" movement came into being and were able to pretty much bring logging to a standstill. Certainly the drought is contributing to this seasons fires in much of Northern California and the NorthWest, but the numbers and intensity of fires were increasing before the drought even came on. Drought can certainly exacerbate fire conditions, but ultimately it is over forestation (fuel loading) that lies at the root cause of the situation. It is no coincidence that the drought in California coincides with severe cooling of most of North American continent landmasses to the East.Many are finally beginning to wake up to the fact that the something is very wrong with the weather. Many are finally realizing something profound is happening in our skies. Some are now finally making the decision to get involved with the fight to raise awareness of the lethal climate engineering programs, but are we already too late? The reason our forest burn hotter and with more devastating consequences is because of the mismanagement of our public lands.  This began with fire suppression and logging. If it's not "climate change/ global warming " as the cause of the California fires and dry weather . The leading cause of it might be California's liberal government doing it's best at mismanagement .

In 1976, climatologists said that that global
 cooling caused drought
 and fires in
and produced catastrophic
erratic weather globally.
(1)>>Tropical meteorologist Dr. Phil Klotzbach said August 2015 monthly sea-surface temperature anomalies in that strip of Pacific water nudged slightly ahead of 1997 for warmest in the modern era"The atmospheric response to the equatorial sea-surface temperature anomalies, measured by their atmospheric ENSO index (AEI), is the strongest event since at least 1948," said Dr. Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist at WSI, the professional division of The Weather Company, in aSeptember-November seasonal outlook. (2)>>The fact that El Niño is likely to last into spring is important for the United States since precipitation and temperature impacts from a moderate-to-strong El Niño are typically most noticeable during the colder months, from late fall through winter.This so called  powerful El Niño now forming, combined with the ongoing ocean warming, suggests that we are likely to see a mass coral bleaching episode that approaches, or exceeds, the worldwide bleaching that came with the Super El Niño years of 1982/1983 and 1997/1998. The 1997/1998 Super El Niño saw 16% of the world's coral bleach, the largest die-off ever observed, and some of this coral has never recovered. (3)>> The Nazca and Moche . El Nino's in South America are not good weather , HISTORICALLY . The Moche civilization ended with a famine caused by El Niño. El Niño causes extreme weather such as floods, droughts and disturbances that affect agriculture and fishing. There are several theories as to what caused the demise of the Moche political structure. Some scholars have emphasised the role of environmental change. Studies of ice cores drilled from glaciers in the Andes reveal climatic events between 536 to 594 AD, possibly a super El Niño, that resulted in 30 years of intense rain and flooding followed by 30 years of drought, part of the aftermath of the climate changes of 535–536. These weather events could have disrupted the Moche way of life and shattered their faith in their religion, which had promised stable weather through sacrifices. (4)>>The volcanic string comes ashore in Calif as Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen most East. To the west, the fault separates Pt. Reyes from the rest of N.America then continues south through Silicon Valley Mountains to Los Angeles.The subduction volcanoes are a bit inland with Calistoga as a hot springs. The discontinuity shifts over to the Mono Lake area (with honorable mention for the Sutter Buttes last active about 6 millon years ago and Mt. Diablo too). From Mono, the volcanoes make a line down to the Salton Sea (near L.a. last eruption about 9000 years back) then follow the Gulf of California with active volcanoes to the end…(5)>> The seafloor has also reportedly dropped by almost 8ft (2.4 metres), additionally said to be a sign of magma being withdrawn from a reservoir beneath the summit.It is dubbed Axial Seamount due its location along the axis of an underwater mountain ridge.We just don't know enough about undersea volcanos and volcanic eruptions, for instance just how many are erupting right now, and what impact is this having on heating the seas thus contributing to normal climate change (or evolution which is better way to
look at it). (6)>>Contrail. In 1999, environmental journalist William Thomas published an article that popularized the idea of chemtrails, toxic clouds that the Air Force was testing to control the weather for geoengineering. He based some of his ideas on the Air Force paper, but also on a patent filed in 1991 for a "Stratospheric Welsbach Seeding for reduction of global warming." That patent was related to research into the idea that seeding the upper atmosphere with reflective particles might slow global warming by reflecting sunlight back into space. So Thomas work steered the chemtrail conspiracy away from weather control for combat, and into weather control for combatting global warming.(7)>> The worsening of California wildfires was predicted a while back and has more to do with past practices of firefighting there than anything else. For a long time, they would put out every fire as fast as possible, eliminating even natural rates of forest-clearing by lightning and such. This led to well-documented overly dense growth which has exacerbated wildfires for years, creating an increasing trend in their extent. In a drought year, this leads to record fires.

Syria, Russia and Kerry.

The Syrian crisis , and the obvious arming of the "so call democracy rebels" by the United States in my mind created the Islamic State of Levant . (***)>> The American foreign  policy was for the complete overthrow of the Assad government.  In some ways I am ashamed that my own country has engaged in such a disastrous conduct by advocating the overthrowing of foreign  governments. This is how hard working Americans are seeing their tax dollars spent . Yes , shipping arms to Syrian Terrorist mislabeled as "freedom fighters" . The news right now reports that Russia has entered the game , now they are sending arms , troops and advisers to try to help the Assad government fight the rebels , and the Islamic State . PERSONALLY I said ' Thank Your Mr. Putin". (1)>>  Russia is doing EXACTLY what America should have done in the first place . It should have supported Assad against the Syrian rebels who are linked to  al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, al-Nusra front . All of our American leadership has done is double dealing and treachery . Selling weapons to rebels who intern are allied with ISIL , who are shooting and killing with American made weapons . What a despicable viscous circle  With the new "Obama induced" cold war of words with Russia (3)>> John Kerry warned Russia not in get involved.Now YOU  with intelligent scruples are scratching your heads on this one? How can we tell Russia to back off Syria when our illustrious hypocritical American government has been  involved in  (5)>> Syria by destabilizing that nation to such a point that now we have all these (2)>> refugees fleeing ? It's sicking . BUT those are HARD the facts . Americans WAKE UP!As Americans we are just getting our media (4)>>  induced explanations to this crisis.US Secretary of State John Kerry has expressed his concern over reports of Russian military activities in Syria, (oh ho ) warning that it could fan more violence, ( what about our American involvement ?)  a state department spokesman said.Spokesman John Kirby told reporters in the US on Wednesday that Kerry made clear in a phone call to Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that if the reports were true "it could lead to greater violence and are not helpful at all" to efforts by the international community to end the conflict. Currently after two news broadcasts from some of the big networks are popularizing a false notion on American minds that its because of " Russian involvement" . The west has to point the finger and blame someone else .US questions Russia over moves in Syria, who questioned US about their moves in these so called Muslim countries? The west funds one rebel group after the other and then use them as a cause to invade, they did that in Afghanistan, Iraq.The arming of Syrian rebels by the west lead to the the creation of IS. Their interference in Iraq, Syria, Libya only brought only disasters, these countries were in more better state before the west made its "move". And by the way, Russia doesn't cares about US warning. Putin is planning to focus on the fight against “terrorism” in his speech later this month at the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Russia will also host a ministerial-level meeting on the sidelines about fighting extremism, which it defines as including all the groups fighting the Assad regime, including the U.S.-backed rebels.

Show me the legality of the war in Syria. Syria is an independent and Sovereign country, under what authority of the U.S? 


(1)>> The Russians have a naval base, the Americans would have done the same to "protect their interests". If the west is seeking a political solution why are they and their pals still doing bombing raids? Who are they negotiating with? America would have had the upper hand against IS had it supported Assad , but obviously President Obama had to draw a "red line" with Assad , and side with the rebels.(2)>> refugees.  Russia is doing this at the behest of the EU and the US although they may say otherwise in the media, the exchange will soon be the quiet easing of sanctions on Russia and also a "blind eye" policy to what happens in Ukraine. WHY? because the US and NATO has failed to contain this problem and it has now arrived on their shores in a shock wave of refugees, refugees that will cost them dearly financially and refugees that could be a security threat in their countries but mostly, refugees they can't turn away.It makes extremely good sense to allow the Russians a free hand to literally wipe out every armed faction and be left with only Assad. Sadly this does say one thing very clearly, the US and the EU are more worried about themselves than the Syrian or Ukrainian people.(3)>> John Kerry. The US secretary of state appeared to say on CBS News that America has to negotiate with Syria’s president about a political transition in the war-torn country. But later the State Department clarified that John Kerry wasn’t referring to Bashar Assad. "But to get the Assad regime to negotiate, we're going to have to make it clear to him that there is a determination by everybody to seek that political outcome and change his calculation about negotiating,” Kerry said on Sunday. Kerry was speaking on the fourth anniversary of the start of the civil war in Syria, which started as peaceful protests against the Assad government, but descended into violence claiming more than 210,000 lives. The US has been supporting the Syrian rebels, who insist that the Syrian president should be ousted. In January, Russia and the US organized the Geneva-2 peace talks between Assad’s government and the Syrian opposition. However, after two rounds of negotiations, no agreement was reached. This April, Moscow is set to host a meeting between the two sides of the conflict.(4)>> The Propaganda in the USAAccording to certain elements of the US media, Russian soldiers are everywhere. At this stage, the moon is probably the only place you are safe. Then again, maybe they are readying copy which 'proves' that the Russians are hiding on the dark side. Or perhaps even they believe that such an accusation would be a bridge too far.Russian military personnel have always been in Syria. Moscow has a base there. Furthermore, Vladimir Putin has hardly hidden the fact that his government has fulfilled defense contracts with Damascus. That would require trainers on the ground. (5)>>The “destabilizing” remark can’t pass without comment. The US has trained and armed foreign militants in a bid to overthrow Syria’s government. It is currently illegally bombing the country. Of course, this helps to fuel the migrant crisis in the EU. (***)>>  No. the USA's war on terror is what has made America less safe. Additionally, continuously poking a bear in the eye also makes one less safe. I will suggest that it is the USA's foreign policy that makes American's less safe. Sadly, America will reap what it has sown. You sow corruption you reap corruption.
