911 artifacts of melted concrete & steel

Click picture to see the detail

Concrete disintigrates at about 1000 degrees fahrenheit but doesn't melt untill it reaches approximately 3000 degrees. Steel melts at around 2500 degrees so this conglomerate must have formed at around this temperature as some of the gun parts are melted. If the whole thing was to exceed the melting point of the agragate in the concrete it would end up being a form of lava or obsidian.

If a geologist in the distant future were to find one of these artifacts he would probably have no idea what he was looking at or why these man made objects ended up in the conglomerate.

Some speculation on thermite.

One of the things that could possibly cause temperatures of this magnitude would be thermite. The other one is the use of direct energy weapons which is easily diverted because it sounds like such a crazy idea to anyone who hasn't seen the information on them. However Youtube has some interesting videos that show that such things do exist and are indeed being used and have been operational for some time.

Why write about such a mundane subject?

I suppose it's because I wonder how the NIST could be working on an explanation of what happened on that fateful day, and still has not completed their report, allthough it allready contains 10,000 pages. I suppose that it's because I think that there should be an independent and open investigation. You things are done in a democracy...G:

Antarctic ice shelf continues to break up


A large chunk of the Wilkins ice shelf has broken off showing the long lineal fractures and right angle corners of these huge blocks of ice. A scientist from the British Antarctic Survey predicted this break-up in 1993. In the following article is an awesome video of the ice shelf taken from an old Twin Otter Aircraft.

Whether caused by something called Global Warming or a natural warming cycle, this cannot be ignored. I believe that the primary cause of the current warming trends is the unprecedented harvesting of trees and plantlife by mankind on virtually every part of the planet. The cooling effects of the transpiration of water from trees when removed in large areas like Brazil has an effect on weather patterns, and at the same time decreases Mother Natures ability to replenish the very oxygen that is necessary for animal life. The Earth's resources, fossile fuels in particular, are like a natural battery, providing fire to run the technology we feel is necessary to enhance our existance, and we are using it up like there is no tomorrow.

This whole thing probably started when Zog Earlyman cooked up his first Mastadon steak and our technology hasn't really advanced much since those times. Mankind has learned how to burn the crap out of everything, but hasn't even came close to replicating the natural ability of plant life to utilise carbon dioxide in the production of oxygen.

British Antarctic Survey

25 Mar 2008

Glaciologist Ted Scambos from the University of Colorado alerted colleagues Professor David Vaughan and Andrew Fleming of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) that the ice shelf looked at risk. After checking daily satellite pictures, BAS sent a Twin Otter aircraft on a reconnaissance mission to check out the extent of the breakout.

Professor Vaughan, who in 1993 predicted that the northern part of Wilkins Ice Shelf was likely to be lost within 30 years if climate warming on the Peninsula were to continue at the same rate, says,

"Wilkins is the largest ice shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula yet to be threatened. I didn't expect to see things happen this quickly. The ice shelf is hanging by a thread – we'll know in the next few days or weeks what its fate will be."

Jim Elliott was onboard the BAS Twin Otter to capture video of the breakout for Vaughan and colleagues. He says,

"I've never seen anything like this before – it was awesome. We flew along the main crack and observed the sheer scale of movement from the breakage. Big hefty chunks of ice, the size of small houses, look as though they've been thrown around like rubble – it's like an explosion."

The breakout is the latest drama in a region of Antarctica that has experienced unprecedented warming over the last 50 years. Several ice shelves have retreated in the past 30 years - six of them collapsing completely (Prince Gustav Channel, Larsen Inlet, Larsen A, Larsen B, Wordie, Muller and the Jones Ice Shelf.)

Professor Vaughan continues,

"Climate warming in the Antarctic Peninsula has pushed the limit of viability for ice shelves further south – setting some of them that used to be stable on a course of retreat and eventual loss. The Wilkins breakout won't have any effect on sea-level because it is floating already, but it is another indication of the impact that climate change is having on the region."

Video details @ 1:52

Please excuse the low quality of these images. They are digital photos of what happened in a fraction of a second at 1:52 of the video. Watching the video, the whole conflagration appears on the right and exits at the left of the screen as far as I can tell without a video editer. Of particular interest is the bird like figure. Why isn't it in the other images when this whole thing happens in a fraction of a second? Note the vertical shadow on the left side of the picture in the last two frames...

Are Star Wars weapons being used in Basra?


March 28, 2008 - 6:15 PM

In one strike before dawn, a U.S. helicopter fired a hellfire missile at gunmen firing from the roof of a building, killing four of them, Cheadle said. A Reuters photographer there filmed windows blown out of cars and walls pocked with shrapnel.
Later in the day cars were engulfed in flames after an apparent air strike on a Sadr City parking lot. Police said another U.S. air strike in Kadhimiya, a Sadr stronghold in northern Baghdad, killed five people. U.S. forces said they killed 27 fighters in
operations in the capital on Thursday.

There are some pretty strange things on this video.

1:09 Burning vehicles much like found at the World Trade Center disaster.

1:41 Aircraft shooting fireballs.

1:42 A fast moving aircraft streaks from the right side of the picture and exits to left.

I don't have the capacity on my computer to capture video stills,so will give the times on the video where I seen these aircraft or whatever they are. To do it I had to keep running it over and over and quickly hitting pause.

1:52 There's a whole lot going on here in just a fracion of a second. The overall view is rapid, but you will notice something streakinf from right to left. Here's what I found by hitting pause after many tries.

1 Three aircraft enter at right side of picture.

2 Large eagle shaped figure followed by one aircraft at center of picture

3 Large eagle figure has moved to left and been passed by the single aircraft.

4 Large eagle figure exiting to left.

5 Gray area like a cloud or force field at exit point.

6 A gray area could be seen on the right just before the three aircraft entered,

Molten metal is not going away

Was there molten metal under the destroyed WTC buildings? Fire department eyewitnesses say they saw it - like lava flowing from a volcano. John Gross, head investigator for NIST, denies this, saying there was no molten metal.

ILWU to Shut Down West Coast Ports May 1 Demanding End to War in Iraq, Afghanistan

For Workers Strikes Against the War!

Colorado Independent Media Center
Posted March 1st, 2008 by Fred Bergen

In a major step for the U.S. labor movement, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) has announced that it will shut down West Coast ports on May 1, to demand an immediate end to the war and occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the Middle East. In a February 22 letter to AFL-CIO president John Sweeney, ILWU International president Robert McEllrath reported that at a recent coast-wide union meeting, “One of the resolutions adopted by caucus delegates called on longshore workers to stop work during the day shift on May 1, 2008 to express their opposition to the war in Iraq.”

This is the first time in decades that an American union has decided to undertake industrial action against a U.S. war. It is doubly important that this mobilization of labor’s power is to take place on May Day, the international workers day, which is not honored in the U.S. Moreover, the resolution voted by the ILWU delegates opposes not only the hugely unpopular war in Iraq, but also the war and occupation of Afghanistan (which Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and Republican John McCain all want to expand). The motion to shut down the ports also demands the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the entire region, including the oil sheikdoms of the strategically important Persian/Arab Gulf.

The Internationalist Group has fought from the moment U.S. troops invaded Afghanistan in September 2002 for American unions to strike against the war. Despite the fact that millions have marched in the streets of Europe and the United States against the war in Iraq, the war goes on. Neither of the twin war parties of U.S. imperialism – Democrats and Republicans – and none of the capitalist candidates will stop this horrendous slaughter that has already killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. The only way to stop the Pentagon killing machine is by mobilizing the power of a greater force – that of the international working class.


SYNOPSIS: EYE OF THE STORM (Amie Williams, 2007) depicts the 2002 contract struggle between west coast longshore workers and international shippers who ultimately locked out thousands of workers from ports on the west coast. The film offers interviews and news clips showing all sides and actions in the 2002 struggle, which lasted nine months, and gives a history of the ILWU from its birth during the bloody 1934 west coast maritime strike through today, as a grass-roots-led progressive democratic force within American labor.

Not even wrong

An apparently scientific argument is said to be not even wrong if it is based on assumptions that are known to be incorrect, or alternatively theories which cannot possibly be falsified or used to predict anything. The phrase was coined by the early quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli, who was known for his colourful objections to incorrect or sloppy thinking.

The term (or pseudo-skepticism) denotes thinking that appears to be skeptical but is not. The term is most commonly encountered in the form popularised by Marcello Truzzi, through his Journal of Scientific Exploration, where he defined pseudoskeptics as those who take "the negative rather than an agnostic position but still call themselves 'skeptics.
