PREPARE TO EVACUATE!!: Albuquerque Air Force Base Orders 1,200 Particulate Radiation Suits

On Feb 20th, Kirkland Air Force base in Albuquerque New Mexico awarded a sole source contract to MRI corp of El Paso, Texas for 1,200 Particulate Radiation suits. A obvious purpose for this order is to prepare for another massive Plutonium release from DOE’s WIPP plant outside Carlsbad New Mexico.

” the contractor shall provide 1200 sets of personal protective equipment (PPE) single-use overgarments, hoods and footwear as indicated by size and part numbers below. Hoods and bootliners may be integrated into the suit design, but at a minimum must be designed to afford full protection to the wearer when worn as an ensemble. All part numbers used are Orex brand. Non-ventilated protective clothing shall protect the wearer against particulate radioactive contamination”
“300 each – Orex Ultra Coverall, Medium, Part Number: CSA3500-M
350 each – Orex Ultra Coverall, Large, Part Number CSA3500-L
300 each – Orex Ultra Coverall, Extra Large, Part number CSA3500-XL
150 each – Orex Ultra Coverall – Double X Large, Part Number CSA3500-XXL
100 each – Orex Ultra Coverall, Triple X Large, Part Number CSA3500-3X
1200 each – Orex Ultra Bootliners, XL, Part Number CS3516-XL
1200 each – Orex Ultra Hoods, Part Number CS3555″
As we stated in our previous post:
BUGOUT ALERT! CDC Preps MASSIVE Ventilator Order, References Radiological Event And Pandemic Influenza

One thing we know for sure, it would be wise risk mitigation to be able to IMMEDIATELY escape upwind of the WIPP site within a moments notice for anyone living within a 200 mile zone. This means having a P100 mask and items to sustain comfort immediately available and transportable (along with a plan to get out).

We expect that the DOE WIPP site should be tracking levels of Hydrogen, Methane, & VOC’s from increased radiolysis occurring in the WIPP mine. But, this does not mean they will alert you. DOE denied the Plutonium release for DAYS.

Alternative media is just now reporting the size of the Plutonium release, we first quantified and reported the size of that Plutonium release over 1 week ago. People did not want to believe there was a massive release because ofNormalcy Bias, don’t make that mistake again!

CARLSBAD, NM ..airborne radiation detected

New Mexico residents, RV'ers within  100 miles of  the area, take advantage of your ability to move

don’t wait for the EPA to advise you with false information,

 as airborne radiation has already been detected


Deadly alert issued by potrblog: NM waste isolation plant still spewing ’6,667 Bq radioactive plutonium per minute’ into air February 24, 2014  12:02 PM EST SHARE :

New Mexico residents, you have been warned–don’t wait for the EPA to advise you with false information as airborne radiation has already been detected

By Shepard Ambellas
CARLSBAD, NM (INTELLIHUB) — According to potrblog and another “reliable source” of information, an insider, from the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), residents and people within 100 miles of the plant may be in serious danger as a massive radiation plume is airborne. In fact, insider information and calculations show that the toxic plume may contain “deadly” amounts of radiation as the initial release over only a 30-second span calculated out to be around 100 million Bq. Astonishingly, the current release rate of radioactive plutonium isotopes is around 6,667 Bq per minute, as calculated by potrblog. Pissin’ on the Roses reported: Our source informed us that at Station A (prior to HEPA filtration) that the small amount of air which is being sampled returned a reading of several hundred DPM’s; and that the POST HEPA FILTERED AIR was reading approximately 20 DPM’s. WIPP planning documents indicated that their ventilation system has 3 fans, which add up to at total ventilation capacity of 20,000 Cubic Meters of Air per minute. The ventilation system has 4 circuits. It is unclear which circuits are running, or at what rates. It is also unclear if there are even higher concentrated released going out of the other shafts at the plant. But given the information available, the wise risk mitigation based measurement for current releases is 400,000 DPM’s every single minute. It is also important to note that the sampling filters are tiny in comparison to the over all airflow, only a small subset of air is measured. The photos of the Station A sensors/ filters show a pipe roughly 1/2 inch in diameter as the air sample source. The actual exhaust pipe is tall enough for a person to walk in. The plant also has 4 ventilation zones, it is unclear which zones are currently being ventilated. Hence 400K DPM per minute is the MINIMUM Radiation release number on which a wise person would base risk mitigation decisions.

Are Bloggers supporting Assassinations / Amazon = CIA ?

 If Obama Orders the CIA to Kill a U.S. Citizen, Amazon Will Be a Partner in Assassination

The online mega-retailer has a little-known $600-million contract with the CIA.

President Obama is now considering whether to order the Central Intelligence Agency to kill a U.S. citizen in Pakistan. That’s big news this week. But hidden in plain sight is the fact that Amazon would be an accessory to the assassination.

Amazon has a $600 million contract with the CIA to provide the agency with “cloud” computing services. After final confirmation of the deal several months ago, Amazon declared: “We look forward to a successful relationship with the CIA.”

The relationship means that Amazon -- logoed with a smiley-face arrow from A to Z, selling products to millions of people every week -- is responsible for keeping the CIA’s secrets and aggregating data to help the agency do its work. Including drone strikes. 

Drone attacks in Pakistan are “an entirely CIA operation,” New York Times reporter Mark Mazzetti said Tuesday night in an  interview on the PBS NewsHour. He added that “the Pakistani government will not allow the [U.S.] military to take over the mission because they want to still have the sort of veneer of secrecy that the CIA provides.”
The sinister implications of Amazon’s new CIA role have received scant public attention so far.

As the largest Web retailer in the world, Amazon has built its business model on the secure accumulation and analysis of massive personal data. The firm’s Amazon Web Services division gained the CIA contract amid fervent hopes that the collaboration will open up vast new vistas for the further melding of surveillance and warfare. 

Any presidential decision to take the life of an American citizen is a subset of a much larger grave problem. Whatever the nationality of those who hear the menacing buzz of a drone overhead, the hijacking of skies to threaten and kill those below is unconscionable. And, as presently implemented, unconstitutional.
On Feb. 11 the Times  reported that the Obama administration “is debating whether to authorize a lethal strike against an American citizen living in Pakistan who some believe is actively plotting terrorist attacks.” In effect, at issue is whether the president should order a summary execution -- an assassination -- on his say-so.

The American way isn’t supposed to be that way. The “due process of law” required by the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution is not supposed to be whatever the president decides to do.
A free and independent press is crucial for confronting such dire trends. But structural factors of corporate power continue to undermine the potential of journalism. The Washington Post is a grim case in point.
Six months ago, Jeff Bezos -- the CEO and main stakeholder of Amazon -- bought the Post. But the newspaper’s ongoing CIA-related coverage does not inform readers that the CIA’s big contract with Amazon is adding to the personal wealth of the Post’s sole owner.

This refusal to make such conflict-of-interest disclosures is much more than journalistic evasion for the sake of appearances. It’s a marker for more consolidation of corporate mega-media power with government power. The leverage from such convergence is becoming ever-less acknowledged or conspicuous as it becomes ever-more routine and dominant.
After e-mail correspondence with me about the non-disclosure issue in early January, the executive editor of the Washington Post, Martin Baron, declined to answer questions from media outlets on the subject. On Jan. 15 -- when I delivered a  petition under the heading “Washington Post: Readers Deserve Full Disclosure in Coverage of CIA,” signed by 30,000 people, to the newspaper’s headquarters -- Baron declined to meet with me or designate any employee to receive the petition. Clearly the Post management wants this issue to go away.

But, as I wrote to Baron last month, it’s all too convenient -- and implausible -- for the Washington Post to claim that there would be “no direct relevance of the [Amazon-CIA] cloud services contract to coverage of such matters as CIA involvement in rendition of prisoners to regimes for torture; or in targeting for drone strikes; or in data aggregation for counterinsurgency.”
The surveillance state and the warfare state continue to converge. The Washington Post does not want us to insist on journalistic disclosure. Amazon does not want us to insist on moral accountability. President Obama does not want us to insist on basic constitutionality. It would be a shame to oblige any of them.

Our Short Snowbird season has begun

After enduring snow, ice and zero temps we made it to warmth 

After conversing with friend Bob (Cheap RV living) he informed me that the wind has not blown much at all this season, But I decided since I had not used the wind charger this year I decided to put it up.

The wind blew a strong 15mph all day so it actually did some good

The first night in the Arizona Desert since last year that I had time to take another sunset picture

Made a trip into Quartzsite looking for a car wash, asked local residents if there was one ?
Nope, I noticed this old abandoned gas station that still has the old gas pumps, a statement of days gone by.
The cactus was probably there before the building was constructed  and looks like it will be there after it is gone. I also wonder how deep the well is that the windmill is attached to.

The Tiki Bar is a hit once again, it was sports bar night Thursday night for the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics

Since we were delayed from leaving Denver a day I quickly whipped together an Idea of taking a turkey fryer and miniaturizing it to make a deep fat fryer the can be taken down and stored in a small space, as space it always a premium when traveling in RV's
So, here it is ready to do some appetizers for the Tiki Bar night on Saturday night. Worked great..
 Here it is without the pot

Cody decided the there just had to be something under this bush worth digging to China for, the holes are about 18 inches deep.  He has been sleeping very well at night

Planning on moving to Yuma soon,for a visitation with my favorite Canadian Snowbirds
But, tonight (another low key) Tiki night, all of the neighbors want to take pictures tonight.

Snowbird Action .. Delayed

Mother Nature has decided that Cody the co-pilot and I are not to leave the frozen north today after all.

it seems a small snow storm has the roads a bit iced up today delaying our escape from the dog days of winter...
Well, guess we will tidy up the last minute details that seem to be missed when trying to meet self imposed deadlines..

Mother Nature Says: Deadline ? we don't do deadlines ..

Speaking of Bullshit .. ‘pissed off’ covers it…

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation
 as he compared “Social Security ” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana …
 I think she is a little ticked off! ,,,
 She also tells it like it is!



“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight!!!

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and “your ilk” pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your “shill commission” are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now “you morons” propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because “you idiots” mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you “incompetent bastards” spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” to your incompetence.
Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

And for what?
Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech.

That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.
And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.

P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits “entitlements“. WHAT AN INSULT!!!!
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years “It’s my money”-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks .
