Proof California Fires Started by HAARP Matches

Proof California Fires Started by HAARP Matches | 14 Oct 2017 | The tree pictured is burning from the inside out! The video is very important with eyewitness testimony proving HAARP EMP weapons being used to start California fires. Some witnesses saw blue sparks and flashes in the sky that were NOT lightning! Some felt a weird energy in the air that made their heart palpitate. Some felt an "energy vortex" move through their homes. A firefighter known by one of the guests on Scott Bennett's radio show...told some shocking details on the air. He said a cop went and knocked on the door of a house and told them they had to be out of there in one hour. The fire was nowhere around the home at that point and that's why they had an hour. The policemen came back to that same house in 5 minutes and the house was fully engulfed in flames! No way the fire would have moved from nowhere around there to fully engulfing the house in 5 minutes.

Jesus Campos, the Las Vegas security guard shot before rampage, has vanished

Jesus Campos, the Las Vegas security guard shot before rampage, has vanished  --Campos vanished before scheduled appearances on the Sean Hannity show on Fox, as well as news shows on CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC. | 17 Oct 2017 | Unarmed security guard Jesus Campos, the man that many want to honor and who can help bring clarity about the timeline of the shooting has vanished from the public eye, less than two weeks since the Oct. 1 massacre... Sheriff Joseph Lombardo [a complete and utter tool of the Deep State sociopaths who executed this blatant false flag] also said the guard had been investigating an alarm for a door that had been left ajar on the 32nd floor, where the shooting occurred. He also said that [alleged gunman Stephen] Paddock had checked into the hotel on Sept. 25, not Sept. 28 as had been previously reported...According to a former security guard for Mandalay Bay, armed guards routinely patrol the hotel's hallways. Campos was using a device to log in his whereabouts at the casino. The former security guard, who worked there in the early 2000s, questioned Lombardo's statement that Campos was investigating the open door alarm. "There was no alarm system for opened doors when I was there," he said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to discuss security issues. "You know how often people would have to call hotel guests if that was the case?"


Evidence of Military Grade EMF Accelerants Used in Sonoma, Napa Fires

Evidence of Military Grade EMF Accelerants Used in Sonoma, Napa Fires Video/summary by inTruthbyGrace | 13 Oct 2017 | Something turned these houses into in furnaces to allow for near complete combustion... The evidence of what we are seeing defies the laws of physics for an open air fire, I have ALREADY documented the wind speeds were marginal for the areas at the time the fires started. The fact that a tree is burning AS IF IT IS A FURNACE is noteworthy and should be of great concern to anyone educated prior to 1995 when physics and chemistry actually taught us what is possible with a mere open air burn versus with a furnace. TOTAL combustion of material is NOT possible outside of a furnace, yet that is exactly the damage we are observing with temps reaching high enough values to MELT GLASS.

Trump to Scrap Critical Health Care Subsidies, Hitting Obamacare Again

Trump to Scrap Critical Health Care Subsidies, Hitting Obamacare Again | 12 Oct 2017 | President Trump will scrap subsidies to health insurance companies that help pay out-of-pocket costs of low-income people, the White House said late Thursday. His plans were disclosed hours after the president ordered potentially sweeping changes in the nation’s insurance system, including sales of cheaper policies with fewer benefits and fewer protections for consumers. The twin hits to the Affordable Care Act -- on successive days -- could unravel President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement, sending insurance premiums soaring and insurance companies fleeing from the health law's online marketplaces. After Republicans failed to repeal the health law in Congress, Mr. Trump appears determined to dismantle it on his own.

Administration officials said the order is just the beginning of the administration’s actions related to the health-care law. Experts warned that the order could undermine the stability of ObamaCare markets by opening up skimpier, cheaper plans that would divert healthy people away from ObamaCare plans.

Hotel Worker Reported Shooting Before Las Vegas Massacre Started | 12 Oct 2017 | Two days after police revised their timeline for the shooting in Las Vegas, which left 58 dead and hundreds injured, a hotel maintenance worker said he told hotel dispatchers to call the police before the mass shooting started. Originally, police suggested that gunman Stephen Paddock stopped firing on concertgoers from the window of his 32nd floor suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino when he saw hotel security guard Jesus Campos in his hallway. Campos, who took a non-fatal shot to the leg, was credited with protecting a maintenance worker as Paddock fired dozens of shots into the hall. On Wednesday the hotel maintenance worker, Stephen Schuck, revealed that he told hotel dispatchers to call the police as well. Like Campos, Schuck was responding to a report of a jammed fire door.
 
Las Vegas gunman shot security guard a full six minutes before opening fire on concertgoers, police reveal | 08 Oct 2017 | Police have dramatically changed their account of how the Las Vegas massacre began on Oct. 1, revealing Monday that the gunman [or gunmen] shot a hotel security guard six minutes before opening fire on a country music concert -- raising new questions about why police weren't able to pinpoint the gunman's location sooner. Officials had previously said that [alleged] gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos after Paddock had unleashed his deadly volley at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, an assault that began at 10:05 p.m. and left 58 people dead, with hundreds more injured. They had credited Campos, who was shot in the leg, with stopping the 10-minute assault on the concert crowd by turning the gunman's attention to the hotel hallway, where Campos was checking an alert for an open door in another guest's room. But Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Monday that Paddock shot Campos before his mass shooting -- at 9:59 p.m. -- and they now didn't know why Paddock stopped his attack on the crowd.
 
Las Vegas shooting eyewitness: There were 'four to five' shooters attacking multiple hotels | 09 Oct 2017 | Facebook user and eyewitness Gio Rios has sent shock-waves throughout the internet after he not only confirmed he was present during the attack, he presented a variety of details that are either unpublished or have been denied by authorities and the mainstream media. "There was more than one shooter, I believe there were 4-5 shooters and I saw/heard 4 of them," Rios claimed. "There was one of their men down in the concert who lit firecrackers either to distract people...or to decoy the Mandalay Bay shooter breaking the windows out of the hotel without being noticed right away." That's right, we now have another eyewitness publicly speaking about multiple shooters just as police originally stated (on the scanners). Keep in mind that other proof of some sort of false flag operation has also been revealed, including automatic gunfire heard at ground level.
 
Hotel Guest Next Door to Las Vegas Shooter Saw 'Multiple Gunmen' | 03 Oct 2017 | An Australian man who was staying in the room next to the shooter in the Mandalay Bay has confirmed he witnessed multiple gunmen involved in the Las Vegas attack.

Mr. Hodge, who was staying in room 32134, next door to Stephen Paddock in room 32135, also provided important information when he revealed that a security guard was killed by police. "My floor is a crime scene. They killed a security guard on my floor." ...Wendy Miller from Cooroy, on the Sunshine Coast -- another Australian caught up in the Las Vegas shooting -- may have provided a missing piece of the puzzle. Also speaking to the Courier-Mail, Ms Miller said...she saw what she described as a "man of interest" run by. Ms Miller said the man sprinted through her hotel after coming off an escalator from the Mandalay Bay. "The man that they [security] were chasing was wearing a security jacket like them," she said.
 
Receipt Shows Paddock Had Another Guest in His Room Before Shooting --Gunman ordered for two on September 27, four days before massacre | 04 Oct 2017 | An image posted on Facebook by a man who claims he served Stephen Paddock room service shows that the gunman was with a guest during his time at the Mandalay Bay hotel four days before the massacre took place. The receipt shows an employee named Antonio served two guests an "IRD_MB," which means "In Room Dining, Mandalay Bay." The table number is "32135" - which equates to Paddock’s room number (135) on the 32nd floor...The receipt shows the number "2" next to the word "Guests". The date on the receipt also says September 27, whereas authorities assert that Paddock checked in the day after on September 28.

Outrage as Nevada professor suggests Trump deserves blame for Las Vegas massacre | 07 Oct 2017 | A university professor in Las Vegas was filmed in class this week suggesting President Trump deserves some blame for the city's shooting massacre because "all he's done" is "encourage violence." "Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won't be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die," University of Nevada, Las Vegas history professor Tessa Winkelmann said Thursday, according to video obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "Other people will die because of this. And we've seen this happen, right?"
 
Drexel prof under fire for tweets about Las Vegas shooting | 04 Oct 2017 | A Drexel University professor who has come under fire multiple times for controversial tweets is again in hot water over social-media posts. Law enforcement officials are still trying to determine the motive behind gunman Stephen Paddock's mass shooting in Las Vegas over the weekend. But on Twitter, politics and global studies professor George Ciccariello-Maher placed the blame on "Trumpism" and "white victimization" [Same professor who wanted "white genocide" for Christmas. Wasn't this atrocity an act of white genocide? Didn't he just get his wish, only almost a year later? After all, the shooter chose a country music festival, an all-white audience stereotypically described as Trump supporters and "gun-toters" by the CBS exec., as the target of his rampage. Could it be that he harbored the exact same sentiments as George Ciccariello-Maher?] Hours after the shooting, which has claimed 59 lives and left more than 500 injured, Ciccariello-Maher kicked off a Twitter thread with a three-word message: "A White Man." [Wait, isn't he a "white man," too? Would this be a classic case of PROJECTION onto others ("white men") of GUILT that he (mistakenly) feels?]

House Democrat unveils articles of impeachment against Trump, but misses chance to force vote

House Democrat unveils articles of impeachment against Trump, but misses chance to force vote | 11 Oct 2017 | Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) on Wednesday unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump in an effort to force a House vote on removing him from office. Green's articles of impeachment were introduced as "privileged," meaning that they must be considered on the House floor within two legislative days. But when the GOP presiding officer moved to begin the process to consider the resolution less than an hour later, Green did not show up. The resolution was therefore not offered and is not getting an imminent vote.


Harvey Weinstein accused of rape by three women

The women, two who agreed to be identified and one who spoke anonymously, told an American magazine that the producer of [well-regarded] movies forcibly performed or received one sex act, and forced another on them. The allegations, which Mr Weinstein has denied, follow claims made last week that the co-founder of Miramar Films had settled claims from eight women who accused him of sexual harassment.

After delay, Clinton and Obamas criticize Weinstein | 11 Oct 2017 | Former President Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton both denounced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday as allegations of rape and sexual harassment increased against the prominent Democratic donor.

Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, took swipes via social media at both Clinton and Michelle Obama. "So Michelle Obama speaks out against women in the @GOP, but won't stand up for the women assaulted by Weinstein?" she questioned on Twitter.
