My Morning Walk


Thomas Jefferson had the right idea, rise early and go for a walk to shake off sleep and start the day. This has been my routine for the past several weeks and I find a seven mile walk not only exhilarating but also energizing. In one regard I hold a different opinion from Jefferson: bring a book - an audio one, that is. Jefferson may have reconsidered his advice not to clutter the mind if he had had access to today's audio books. I'm listening to a true tale of pirates and walking to a sunrise over the Gulf. Bliss.

HAARP Activated to Subdue Hurricane Isaac



Hurricane Isaac is trying his best to be in New Orleans on Wednesday for the seventh anniversary of hurricane Katrina, but HAARP has been fired up to stop him from crashing the party.

From HAARPstatus.com: A shortwave that peaked in six hours has just struck Southern Louisiana. This comes around the same time the swarm of quakes started in Southern California as well. This is the strongest shortwave reading ever in this project, a solid 10.0 over Southern Louisiana. No doubt about it, HAARP is tuned on to control Isaac.

This battle of machine vs. Nature is certain to prove entertaining for those of us in the know.

Donald Trump, Sheriff Joe Arpaio Kick Off Blustery RNC




Hurricane Isaac has nothing on these two. Donald Trump and Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio have top billing on the first night of the Republican National Convention -- and coincidentally no major tv network will be covering them.

Obama's birth certificate issue has been marginalized as such a joke by the Democrats that for the GOP to bring it up at this point seems like political suicide, unless...

Suppose for a moment that real PROOF of Obama's fraudulent documents has been discovered. Would this be enough reason for Donald Trump to act giddy as a school girl about his role at the RNC?

If not, and the Democrats are right about Donald's big role -- firing some Obama look alike... then I'll be terribly dissappointed in both The Donald and the GOP.

But, what if they have a real ace up their sleeve?

Personally, I'm expecting nothing less than Felony Fraud charges being filed against Obama.  -- I can't wait! -- c

Obama Can't See the Way Forward

By Ol Remus at Woodpile Report

Forward! The Obama campaign is using Forward as it's slogan for the 2012 election. A long-time favorite of Marxists, the slogan Forward! has replaced Workers of the World, Unite! among today's activists. For example, Leading Light , a fast-growing Maoist umbrella outfit with special emphasis on minorities and violent revolution, prominently features Forward! on their materials.

From Leading Light FAQ To make Leading Light Communism a reality takes reorganization of social forces. We must align friends against enemies. It takes building of institutions of the exploited and oppressed, New Power. It takes education and ideological remolding... We must dismantle the First World as it currently exists. The reality is these struggles will necessarily have a violent aspect... This will take time. You will advance in stages. We are a mostly clandestine organization. Do not expect to understand everything or how we operate.

See their video, Leading Light Communist Organization, at YouTube, 3m 19s.

Pam Warhurst: How we can eat our landscapes


What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.

August 12, 1984 - UFO Show at the Los Angeles Coliseum Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony

August 12, 1984 - UFO Show at the Los Angeles Coliseum Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony
08-12-1984

What will the August 12, 2012 olympic closing ceremony bring? - c

The 1984 Summer Olympics show promised an unreal "out of this world" closing ceremony event. Which is exactly what the people of Los Angeles & spectators around the world were presented with! The closing ceremony which was held at the L.A. Coliseum featured a spectacularly unexpected light show, unlike the traditional fireworks presentation. This show, instead, included a quoted; "2-ton" flying saucer AKA spacecraft putting on a heavily colored light show of beams, shooting in all directions of the coliseum. Under a well-lit full-moon & thousands of attendees using the Olympic provided flashlights, the show became one of the most uniquely odd endings to a wonderful Summer games. To top off the event, the flying saucer made a surprise landing next to the fully filled stadium, which then led to an alien appearance in front of the live crowd in attendance.

Although, this event gained notable recognition at the time, it was soon forgotten. Maybe due to the lack of later coverage of the event, or a loss of interest by those who watched from there seats & television sets. Regardless, the event continued to gain minimal acknowledgement by theorists who claim the show was in fact, REAL.

Many elements, to this day, seem almost "to" unreal for the nature of the event. Many feel the coincidences that surrounded the event, the oddity of the event in general, & the keen hidden/subliminal details within the show gave it to much of a real feel, rather then fully staged feeling. In short, the year 1984 has huge significance to The Illuminati & other such connection, like The Mayans. Furthermore, the Olympic show had no prior advertising for any alien products including movies. Which, at the time, Sci-Fi was a slowly emerging genre among Hollywood, with a growing potential for profit. Though, no Sci-Fi flicks were being endorsed, presented, or advertised? With movies like "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" releasing in 1977 under Steven Spielberg's directing, it still had a large following, as well as George Lucas' 1st installment of "Star Wars." Other films, John Caprenter's "Starman" & even "The Last Starfighter" both releasing in 1984 were not at all recognized as being attached to this specific event. So, what exactly was the purpose of the fake encounter?

Some feel it was a trial run to see how the general public would react to such an event. While others felt that the aliens in question, were primarily focused on gaining some sort of recognition from the public, rather then being shielded from us as they were previous to the event. Other minor, or major details observed, the alien "costume" was detailed with not only a "tube" or "hose" attachment that led to an unknown spot of the inner-craft that wasn't displayed on television. Other oddities included the costume containing 6-fingers rather then the obviously normal 5-fingers. This wasn't a mistake by the costume designer considering both left/right hands contained 6-fingers. -- # # #

The Ocean: A Driving Force for Weather and Climate



[amazing earth / weather graphics - c]

The Ocean is essential to life on Earth. Most of Earth's water is stored in the ocean. Although 40 percent of Earth's population lives within, or near coastal regions- the ocean impacts people everywhere. Without the ocean, our planet would be uninhabitable. This animation helps to convey the importance of Earth's oceanic processes as one component of Earth's interrelated systems.

This animation uses Earth science data from a variety of sensors on NASA Earth observing satellites to measure physical oceanography parameters such as ocean currents, ocean winds, sea surface height and sea surface temperature. These measurements, in combination with atmospheric measurements such as surface air temperature, precipitation and clouds can help scientists understand the ocean's impact on weather and climate and what this means for life here on Earth. NASA satellites and their unique view from space are helping to unveil the vast... and largely unexplored.... OCEAN.


Water is the fundamental ingredient for life on Earth. Looking at our Earth from space, with its vast and deep ocean, it appears as though there is an abundance of water for our use. However, only a small portion of Earth's water is accessible for our needs. How much fresh water exists and where it is stored affects us all. This animation uses Earth science data from a variety of sensors on NASA Earth observing satellites as well as cartoons to describe Earth's water cycle and the continuous movement of water on, above and below the surface of the Earth.

Sensors on a suite of NASA satellites observe and measure water on land, in the ocean and in the atmosphere. These measurements are important to understanding the availability and distribution of Earth's water -- vital to life and vulnerable to the impacts of climate change on a growing world population.
