There are several events in the coming year that could push the American public over the cliff into active opposition. I think that the first of these tipping point events will be reached in weeks. I still do not believe we will attack Iran. I do think that NATO (i.e. the bankers military arm) will try to starve the Syrians into submission. The Russian delivery of Iskander missiles to Syria is a game changer.
I am writing this in lieu of a predictions for 2013 column because my forecast for 2013 is so dire that nobody would read it. I will say that I expect more than one thousand American cities, counties, school districts and other such local agencies to default on their bonds over the next 12 months. It is my opinion that 2013 is the year in which Americans realize they are too poor to kill millions of innocent people in nations 8,000 miles away because Israel said to do it.
Of course I realize that America is a poor nation because the bankers already sacked and looted the place. Bankers created a system which allows them to charge interest on money they created out of nothing. They created mountains of Unpayable Debts. The total of US, federal state and local bonded indebtedness is now over 21 trillion dollars. A commentator who looked at state unfunded pension funds said that they need to find $30,000 per taxpayer to fully fund those state and local retirements. Not one of my relatives or neighbors has a spare $30,000 to give to the tax collector.
There is another deficit. America has fallen 4 trillion dollars behind in its schedule of repairs to its infrastructure. The lack of maintenance on a railroad bridge in New Jersey recently caused tanker cars of toxic vinyl chloride to fall into the creek below. On August 1, 2007 the eight lane Interstate 35W bridge over the Mississippi river bridge in Minneapolis collapsed killing 13 and injuring 145. You might think the nation would see the writing on the wall, cut the military budget and start repairing its bridges, roads, sewers and other such things that keep America working. That bridge was only 40 years old. The George Washington Bridge connects Manhattan and New Jersey. It has 14 lanes of traffic and carries 105 million vehicles a year. It opened on October 25, 1931. The Wolf Creek dam on the Cumberland river in Kentucky was completed in 1951 and has had seepage problems. If the dam broke, it would put Nashville, the capitol of Tennessee, under 20 feet of water. The state capitol of California is protected from flooding by earthen levees made by farmers in the early 1900s. Earthen levees did not work well for the people of New Orleans in 2005 during Hurricane Katrina and will not hold up to an earthquake. The BP Horizon oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 was due to a failure to properly manage public resources.
The tipping point event I am expecting in the coming weeks is an explosion at the sinkhole in Louisiana which I have been writing about of late. This sinkhole has been known to the government since January of 2011. That was 23 months ago, Our Banker Occupied Government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on wars for Israel, on drones, on surveillance systems and domestic spies for American citizens but next to nothing for our infrastructure. It is as if their budgets did not consider our desire to have a future. DHS has 200,000 contractors in addition to the FBI to make sure that Americans do not get too uppity. At least 3 million Americans died of starvation in the last Depression. What do you think will happen to bankers if they try to starve 10 million Americans to death in the next Depression?
That sinkhole in Louisiana’s Assumption parish (county) is an official federal depository for radioactive waste. It is located next to several other federal depositories which contain more than 18 million barrels of butane and propane. Additionally, the federal contractor Texas Brine Corp has found 100s of thousands of gallons of crude oil in these depositories along with hydrogen sulfide both of which somehow seeped into to the caverns. The state of Louisiana has said there are several caverns full of methane gas which is naturally occurring there. Apparently the methane hydrate beneath the surface of the earth is melting and releasing methane which bubbles up at hundreds of locations throughout Louisiana as well as elsewhere in the world. The total explosive power of these butane and propane depositories is more than a one megaton nuclear device. If even one of these depositories which seismic recordings tell us has walls that are crumbling daily ignites, the resulting explosion could send the radioactive waste high enough into the air to be carried by the wind. It might contaminate the state capitol Baton Rouge and the state’s largest city New Orleans. I previously said that there is a 50-50 chance that the Super Bowl (American football championship) scheduled for New Orleans on February 3rd might have to be moved to another city.
Those storage facilities ought never to have been used for radioactive waste. They are old salt deposits that had been mined using water to make a brine that is extracted and sold to industrial chemical companies. Assumption parish is not much more than 20 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and you ought to expect water in the ground table especially since the salt caverns are very deep and twice the size of the Empire State building. Also the federal depositories ought not to be so close to each other that they could start a chain reaction of explosions. There are two oil refineries and dozens of oil and natural gas pipelines as well as other energy depositories that could cause secondary explosions and sustain that chain reaction. There are hundreds of these salt caverns which are used as storage by the federal government in the region and not just the ten near the sinkhole. The federal government should also have limited the amount of stored material by the explosive potential. No storage location should have anywhere near a one megaton yield in order to limit potential loss of human life.
The federal government would have started emptying out the radioactive waste in January of 2011 if they cared about us.
I expect this sinkhole to blow sky high at about the same time as taxes are raised and benefits are cut for all Americans but subsidies to bankers, Israel and defense contractors are increased. This will be at the same time as tens of millions of Americans are told they will pay 20% more for now mandatory health coverage that does not actually insure them as well as they hoped. And at the same time Obama will try to ban rifles with clips which kill fewer people than do the 30 million American deer who eat 500 kg (1.100 pounds) of vegetation each and collide with more than a million cars and motorcycles every year.
On April 18, 1906 there was a fire and earthquake in San Francisco. Prior to that day graft and corruption was almost as it is in Washington today. The quake moved a road 20 feet. It also changed politics and forced reform of the graft in San Francisco and then statewide in California in the elections of 1910. Abe Reuf, the boss of San Francisco politics, was convicted of bribery, served time in San Quentin prison, and died penniless. The entire Board of Supervisors was forced to resign in disgrace. We can only dream of the same fate for our current Congress, President and political bosses.
I would hope that after that Louisiana sinkhole explodes Americans demand that their politicians and the media show more concern for them than they do for the nation that attacked us on 911 killing more than 3,000 Americans in order to trick us into wars we did not need and could not afford.
