They’re lined up against the back wall of a large hangar on a country road outside Hartford, Connecticut. This is where MSA Security trains what are known in the security trade as explosive detection canines, or EDCs. Most people … Continue reading The Education of a Bomb Dog

THE CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-REALITY THEORY OF TERROR, MASS SHOOTINGS AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE

by Dylan Charles, Editor Waking Times  By now, every possible angle of the Las Vegas shooting has been expounded upon by anyone with a website or a YouTube channel. Without a doubt, something doesn’t add up, but, we’ve gone through this before, many times now, and it never adds up. And it won’t ever add up, because the self-proclaimed authorities will never acknowledge contrary points of view. They’ll never publicly admit that the official story doesn’t jibe with the totality of facts and thoughtful observations openly available to anyone with an internet connection and a halfway open mind. And so we never come … Continue reading THE CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-REALITY THEORY OF TERROR, MASS SHOOTINGS AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE

MASS SHOOTINGS: THE MILITARY-ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX’S CULTURE OF VIOLENCE TURNS DEADLY

by John W. Whitehead, Guest Waking Times “Mass shootings have become routine in the United States and speak to a society that relies on violence to feed the coffers of the merchants of death.

Violence runs through US society like an electric current offering instant pleasure from all cultural sources, whether it be the nightly news or a television … Continue reading MASS SHOOTINGS: THE MILITARY-ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX’S CULTURE OF VIOLENCE TURNS DEADLY

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Official story of Las Vegas shooting unravels; physical impossibility of lone gunman senior citizen makes narrative ludicrous

by: Mike Adams (Natural News) It’s all hogwash. The “official” narrative of how things went down in the Las Vegas massacre is so full of holes that it begs the question of just how deep the truth about this attack really goes. What we know for sure is that, yes, 59 people were killed (so far) and hundreds were wounded. This wasn’t a “hoax” shooting — people actually were shot, wounded and killed (and our prayers go out to all their families for this horrific tragedy). Yet the official narrative that claims Stephen Paddock — a retired, 64-year-old accountant with absolutely no firearms … Continue reading MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Official story of Las Vegas shooting unravels; physical impossibility of lone gunman senior citizen makes narrative ludicrous

This Simulation Shows What Would Happen if a Nuclear Bomb Dropped Near You

  by Business Insider Nuclear Explosion Imagine that a 150-kiloton nuclear bomb exploded in the city closest to you. Do you know how the city, surrounding region, and its inhabitants would be affected? If you can’t think of much more than “a lot of people would die,” you’re not alone. “We live in a world where nuclear weapons issues are on the front pages of our newspapers on a regular basis, yet most people still have a very bad sense of what an exploding nuclear weapon can actually do,” Alex Wellerstein, a historian of science at Stevens Institute of Technology, wrote on his website NuclearSecrecy.org. … Continue reading This Simulation Shows What Would Happen if a Nuclear Bomb Dropped Near You

How Media Obscure US/Saudi Responsibility for Killing Yemeni Civilians

by BEN NORTON A coalition of Saudi Arabia, the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates, with minor support from several other Middle Eastern nations, has relentlessly bombed Yemen since March 2015.
