Evacuation Advisory Issued For Possible Flooding, Debris Flow In Silverado Canyon Burn Area

At least everyone is taking Mud Slides more seriously now. I guess we had to learn from others mistakes and the recent upswing of mudslides internationally as well

CBS Los Angeles

SILVERADO CANYON (CBSLA.com) — Authorities in Orange County Friday issued an evacuation advisory for residents in the Silverado Canyon area.

The advisory was issued for homes east of 30311 Silverado Canyon Road as an incoming storm threatens potential flooding and debris flow in the area burned by the Silverado Canyon Fire in September.

The National Weather Service says a storm approaching the area is expected to produce up to a half-inch of rain between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. Saturday and up to three quarters of an inch overall.

Pilot lost his life to avert Spaceship2 from Homes

This man lost his life trying to avert Spaceship 2 from homes.

He succeeded by about 600′ and 250′.  They are worried about the rocket exploding and homes in the vicinity being impacted if they move it. There is debris scattered all over, Alot of bolts and Heavy duty Screws.

There are no words to describe our condolences to the family of the HEROIC pilot who risked his life for us we are forever grateful to him  My kids thank you because they still having parents and a home after school..

Us Humans really are incredible when it comes to push and shove all the bad press over the years regarding pilots misconduct.  I guarantee if it had been Richard Branson he would have done the same thing.

This is also why people of Cantil support test flight and enjoy the sights and sounds of the craft flying low overhead because They are allways more than just pilots but HEROS who are risking their lives because it is their JOBS.

GOD BLESS

Virgin Galactic spaceship crashes in California – CBS News.

 

NBC LA holding press conference

I live in the area and there was no indication that debris was falling out of the sky.  In the lot next door to us is part of the engine with other debris scattered 1/8 mile away.  We are so lucky it hit in empty fields with occupied homes all around this field.

I know Richard Branson flew the thing a few weeks ago he was in Mojave.

First that rocket exploding now this.

1 pilot confirmed dead another injured.  1 ejected safely.

New York Times reporter James Risen, via Twitter.

James Risen recently won the Elijah Parish Lovejoy Journalism Award for excellence in journalism.

The Pulitzer Prize winning national security reporter has long been hounded by the US Justice Department to disclose his confidential sources from his 2006 book State of War.

As the Washington Post wrote back in August, “Prosecutors want Mr. Risen’s testimony in their case against Jeffrey Sterling, a former CIA official who is accused of leaking details of a failed operation against Iran’s nuclear program. Mr. Risen properly has refused to identify his source, at the risk of imprisonment. Such confidential sources are a pillar of how journalists obtain information. If Mr. Risen is forced to reveal the identity of a source, it will damage the ability of journalists to promise confidentiality to sources and to probe government behavior.”

While accepting the Lovejoy Award, Risen had this to say:

The conventional wisdom of our day is the belief that we have had to change the nature of our society to accommodate the global war on terror. Incrementally over the last thirteen years, Americans have easily accepted a transformation of their way of life because they have been told that it is necessary to keep them safe. Americans now slip off their shoes on command at airports, have accepted the secret targeted killings of other Americans without due process, have accepted the use of torture and the creation of secret offshore prisons, have accepted mass surveillance of their personal communications, and accepted the longest continual period of war in American history. Meanwhile, the government has eagerly prosecuted whistleblowers who try to bring any of the government’s actions to light.

Americans have accepted this new reality with hardly a murmur. Today, the basic prerequisite to being taken seriously in American politics is to accept the legitimacy of the new national security state that has been created since 9/11. The new basic American assumption is that there really is a need for a global war on terror. Anyone who doesn’t accept that basic assumption is considered dangerous and maybe even a traitor.

Today, the U.S. government treats whistleblowers as criminals, much like Elijah Lovejoy, because they want to reveal uncomfortable truths about the government’s actions. And the public and the mainstream press often accept and champion the government’s approach, viewing whistleblowers as dangerous fringe characters because they are not willing to follow orders and remain silent.

The crackdown on leaks by first the Bush administration and more aggressively by the Obama administration, targeting both whistleblowers and journalists, has been designed to suppress the truth about the war on terror. This government campaign of censorship has come with the veneer of the law. Instead of mobs throwing printing presses in the Mississippi River, instead of the creation of the kind of “enemies lists” that President Richard Nixon kept, the Bush and Obama administrations have used the Department of Justice to do their bidding. But the effect is the same — the attorney general of the United States has been turned into the nation’s chief censorship officer. Whenever the White House or the intelligence community get angry about a story in the press, they turn to the Justice Department and the FBI and get them to start a criminal leak investigation, to make sure everybody shuts up.

What the White House wants is to establish limits on accepted reporting on national security and on the war on terror. By launching criminal investigations of stories that are outside the mainstream coverage, they are trying to, in effect, build a pathway on which journalism can be conducted. Stay on the interstate highway of conventional wisdom with your journalism, and you will have no problems. Try to get off and challenge basic assumptions, and you will face punishment.

Journalists have no choice but to fight back, because if they don’t they will become irrelevant.

Double Bonus: Elijah Parish Lovejoy was a minister in the first half of the 19th century who edited an abolitionist paper called the St. Louis Observer. He was murdered by a pro-slavery mob in 1837. More via Wikipedia.

My hope is we as Americans haven’t accepted it quietly but are showing our Quiet disregard for a Political Government who isn’t very democratically inclined but more facist and propaganda fed. Quiet disregard for those sworn to serve not justified by protect.

Propaganda always makes Americans Complacent & eventually disembodied from Compassion then Racism and Prejudice Snaps us back to reality.

We The People

Next month is Voting, patriotism, red,white and blue. Citizenship month. The 1 day a year the government gives us to exercise our greatest Power as an american citizen. Our right to vote.

As a voter in a century of shoddy complacency, laziness, sloth, vice, coveting, and sub standard livelyness where mind control seems a dismal truth we try to throw away but sounds more appealing as the dreary days and nights pass us by  continually meticiuoulsly, absolutely, with the greatest of consistency.

AT&T gets $105 million wake-up call about mobile cramming

This is interesting,  my husband received a bill from ATT Mobility. The bills total was 1,572.00. He refused to pay it . Now it is on his credit report. There was no phone number listed and AT&T didn’t know anything about it. How can they reconcile themselves with customers who now have bad credit  because of cramming???

AT&T played stupid to this scam when we contacted them. They had to be receiving a percentage of the money  The crammer ATT Mobility received from billing customers claiming bogus charges or as a collection agency named ATT.

AT&T gets $105 million wake-up call about mobile cramming

By Lesley Fair
We’re not saying it’s the most important phone message since “Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you.” But the FTC hopes a $105 million settlement with AT&T Mobility stemming from unauthorized charges on consumers’ mobile phone bills will motivate industry members to listen up.
