The following is the second installment of an exclusive four part series on memoryholeblog.com probing the relationship between America’s police state and less-understood weather warfare programs. Part I of Stealth Terror may be found here. The work will run weekly through July 30. -JFT
Expanding the Stealth Terror Thesis: Hurricane management
The following Atlantic hurricanes, of those exceeding $10 billion in damage, are the costliest to date. Dollars are approximate, Sandy’s estimates still in flux. Those in bold occurred after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) took responsibility for the weather-control program beginning in 2003.
Katrina $108 billion 2005 Bush 43
Sandy 72 2012 Obama
Ike 38 2008 Bush 43
Wilma 29 2005 Bush 43
Andrew 27 1992 Bush 41
Ivan 23 2004 Bush 43
Irene 17 2011 Obama
Charley 16 2004 Bush 43
Rita 12 2005 Bush 43
Gilbert 10 1988 Reagan
Of the next ten in rank (less than $10 billion in damage but more than $5 billion) Bush 43 had five, thus the majority of the “top 20” hurricanes were during the presidency of George W. Bush. Only one of these, Tropical Storm Allison in 2001, was prior to DARPA’s jurisdiction. Before Obama’s entry with Irene and Sandy, George W. (Bush 43) could claim 69% of the dollar cost of this list. Following from this, those hopeful that Obama would not continue the Bush excesses may find little reassurance.
Another means of comparison of all 32 hurricanes costing more than $1 billion is by the percentage of total cost of all 32. Bush 43 had 62%, Obama had 19%, Clinton 8%, Bush 41 8%, Reagan 3%, Carter a third of 1%
No president saw nearly as many damaging hurricanes during his presidency as the younger Bush following the DARPA takeover in 2003, which has HAARP as a central feature of its work. The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in its final form was the project of BAE (British Aeronautical Enterprises) headquartered in the United Kingdom. HAARP can be involved in all aspects of weather control.
Hurricane Ike, which took out half of our magnolia tree in Ohio, was heading west in the Gulf early in September, 2008 after beating up on Haiti, Cuba, Florida and the other Gulf states. As I watched and wondered about the target, it was amazing to see how it developed in strength and size, seeming repeatedly to refresh itself in order to continue. Would Ron Paul, much in the news that election year, rank as a target? Paul was growing in prominence, a Republican in stark contrast, a Populist, a straight arrow without the shaggy histories of John McCain and Sarah Palin. When Ike turned north toward the Texas shoreline its eye, unusually large, stretched from one side of Paul’s congressional district on the Gulf Coast to the other, like a monster mouth opening to chomp down on his district. It flooded his primary congressional headquarters at Galveston, flooding and wrecking the office sufficiently to put it out of operation for the rest of the year. Paul had been growing in interest as a presidential candidate, but when Ike swamped Paul’s office on September 13, McCain had already been selected in the Republican convention in St. Paul, Minnesota ten days earlier. Ike was Texas’ second hit, a million people already in evacuation after Gustav two weeks earlier in an area of east Texas and Louisiana. For days after entering Louisiana Gustav pointed straight for Denver, Colorado where Barack Obama had been nominated Democratic candidate on August 27. Gustav turned to the northeast on September 1 to head away. (I am told by experts that Mother Nature does not have hurricanes move in a straight line.)
Ike’s damage to Ron Paul was in the debilitation of his district containing the people who voted him into office to represent them, an area today still not back to normal.
Ike had made a quick turn to the north to travel through Ontario and Quebec to the Atlantic Ocean. Ohio and Indiana each had seven fatalities and with near hurricane-force winds the loss of trees, downed poles and wires causing weeks of electricity loss. Ike made its impression as far as Iceland, where wind speeds were even higher than in Ohio
When all insurance payments had been counted, it turned out to be the most expensive storm in Ohio’s history–$1.33 billion.
For a hurricane seemingly named after Dwight D. Eisenhower to be sent to chastise a Republican who wasn’t impressed with the party’s leadership seems to be a compelling analysis to remove coincidence as a motive, but it’s pretty thin. It makes for a guessing game—were the controllers unable to get Gustav enduring enough so that Paul’s district could be hit on September 2, the day John McCain and Sarah Palin were nominated? The huge punch by Ike was worth more, because the debilitation of Paul’s district was the main point, and “Ike” was too good to pass up. “Ike” was a listed hurricane when the year began. Was it planned that far ahead? Coincidence or code?
Hurricanes are well known in the secret world of weather warfare, exposed in many books and articles for years. See a January 3, 2013 article at the Free Press and Bob Fitrakis’ 2004 book “Star Wars, Weather Mods, and Full Spectrum Dominance.” He tells the story precisely and well.
On October 29, 2012 did Mother Nature side with Obama’s re-election, to be delivered nine days later as she laid Sandy, a unique last-of-the season hurricane, against human political markers? David Cay Johnston in “Everyday Armageddon” in the November/ December Newsweek suggests that the money for repair and renovation should put Governors Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie in good position for the presidential nomination in 2016 with this “opportunity to do what’s right instead of what’s politically expedient.” (Just announced: Christie will pay $300 million for storm-damaged homes, to be lived in or leveled.) Prospects for this scenario may be seen in the enthusiastic 16-page special section in The Times by the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) assuring that all will cooperate in the recovery. The new business area at the World Trade Center will draw occupants. “If you look downtown,” one REBNY member is quoted, “you are looking at a complete, desirable area that is a magnet for tenants coming into the city.
Was Sandy sent as a gift? If so, not everyone understood it. No one publicly asked the question that would be considered irresponsible if published. When anyone asked “Why did they let this happen?” it was to blame it on the victims as the result of procrastination. To quote Klaus Jacob (July 9 installment): “They “failed to recognize that the authorities were playing Russian roulette.”
These things someone can say. But they do not have leeway to say that this happened because it was likely set up in the secret chambers somewhere inside the Defense Department or the White House. If it was not created by someone at a console, and was in fact entirely an act of nature, then ask the question: “Why did they not head it off?” That is what guiding the jet stream can do. One way the jet stream can be used, for which Irene’s weakening was typical, is to cut off the cloud mass above the twisting core so that it loses its power. In Irene’s case it was said to be the fact that instead of the jet stream cutting across her for a route inland, it went beside her guiding northward so that she spread very widely and thus dryly. This caused a greater area of wind damage, by the time she reached New York she was too moderate to do damage equivalent to Sandy’s.
The hurricane that swamped New York City in 1938 was featured in the 2008 History Channel video: “New York City Hurricane” which was in essence a warning, often repeated, that there was more to come and we’d better get ready for it. The producers at the History Channel may well have known what was possible by human control. Many of their programs over the years until 2010 were bolder than you might imagine today, with facts and analyses given by people in a position to know. One of their JFK investigations several years ago implicated so many prominent people they were required to pull it—no more broadcast, no more video.
When you have an unprecedented, permanent-fact-changing event like Sandy a few days before a presidential election, we coincidence-checkers do a double-take. It’s a lot like finding out about the early warnings of a plot to crash hijacked airplanes into the World Trade Center that Bush had received, yet somehow his Secretary of Defense couldn’t get the Air National Guard interceptors off the ground to do anything but circle above the rising smoke. FAA controllers, puzzled, met together and recorded their conversations about the breakdown in communication. Then their boss destroyed the tape. If you try to follow the action, as the controllers did, you wonder why the fighter pilots had to sit so long before takeoff, as in the case when Flight 77 was reported to be heading for the Pentagon.
At this point I turn your attention to a Rumsfeld-amended special procedure for handling hijacked airplanes: Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction J-3 CJCSI 610.01A, as amended in the first week of June, 2001. Its new instruction would have been most interesting to the befuddled watchers, including fighter pilots with their engines idling, to find the reason they had to endure the long waits that prevented their involvement, thus allowing the disaster they were trained and equipped to prevent.
The change requires that in the case of an aircraft piracy (hijacking) emergency, they must (1) forward the request to the appropriate unified command to determine if suitable aircraft are available and then (2) forward the request to the Secretary of Defense for approval. (Explained by Peter Tiradera, a physician and former Air Force officer, in “9-11–Coup Against America,” 2006.) It is unfortunate that Secretary Rumsfeld was so involved with other matters that he could not make these connections promptly, even to protect others in the Pentagon who could have moved away from the west wall with the minute or two they would have had. This is easily proven. One can be there to see how it looked in detail in a book by one of the victims, LTC Brian Birdwell, “Refined by Fire” (2004), who casts no blame on his boss. Evidently to make up for this failure that so fatally involved the Pentagon, Rumsfeld hastened to the impact scene on the far west side of the building to help move the injured to ambulances, seen on television later and acclaimed as heroic. During that time, Flight 93 was still reported heading toward Washington.
Dr. Judy Wood in her book “Where Did the Towers Go?” (2010) presents evidence of HAARP use of “directed free-energy technology” in the “dustification” of the Twin Towers. (See “Tesla-Hurricane-Magnetometer Correlation,” Wood p. 431.) Did you know that September 11 each year is “Hurricane Day” (The New York Times weather page, 9/11/01) because of the statistical frequency of hurricanes on that day? There was one offshore on 9/11 that had headed straight for New York for several days, then on 9/11 as the towers were struck turned and headed east, not to return.
Hurricane Erin is mentioned routinely on page 6A of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune for that day: “Hurricane Erin kicks up surf along East Coast,” relating that it had “sideswiped Bermuda” over the weekend and “kicked up the surf along the East Coast on Monday.” It was the first Atlantic hurricane of the season, with top sustained winds of 115 mph. It was expected to turn to the northeast, away from the U.S., but there were 3 to 5-foot waves in New Jersey with lifeguards keeping a close watch on swimmers. The Coast Guard posted small-craft advisories along parts of Long Island. The big story in Sarasota was that President Bush had arrived the day before, to speak at Booker Elementary School on the 11th. The next day, storms in the Gulf might double back with 15 inches of rain over south Florida, but a reconnaissance plane could not check on the weather because the order from Washington was that all planes were grounded.
(Pausing to look around: After he was notified of the second plane and that “we are at war” Bush continued to listen to the first graders for a few minutes, then stalled until 10:30 for a TV appearance. His visit well-announced, another “hijacked” plane could have been on the 25-minute route from Miami International Airport to result in a schoolful of dead children, which caused a marine guard to burst in and yell “time to go” and get shushed. Mothers all over Sarasota were hopping into their cars to bring their children home. (Sarasota Herald-Tribune) Cheney then had Bush flown to Omaha apparently so that he would not get in the way.)
The Times mentioned Erin that day with no alarm in the Weather Report on page A22 under “National Forecast,” noting that it will begin to weaken as it interacts with the jet stream. In its “FOCUS” paragraph, September 11 was “HURRICANE DAY,” saying:
“Hurricane Erin spinning north of Bermuda will add to the reputation of Hurricane Day. In 9 out of 10 years since 1886, at least one tropical storm or hurricane has raged in the Atlantic on Sept. 11. No other day has had more storms. Water temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean peak in early September, providing optimum conditions for tropical storms that draw energy from the warmth of the seas. At the same time, strong high-level winds that are capable of tearing storms apart are”
Check that last line, shown exactly as it appears on the page, which does not complete the reference to “strong high-level winds.” That issue was delivered to my door in Ohio on September 11. It will give you pause if you have seen Dr. Judy Woods’ book “Where Did the Towers Go?” because her theory involves a hurricane and a strong high-level wind from the West. The hurricane revolves counterclockwise, the wind strikes it at the north edge, clockwise, to create the “directed free energy” to enable the World Trade Center buildings to be turned to dust. It is a compelling theory, contested by other hard-working and respected 9/11 researchers, but I find it important for consideration without abandoning the engineering analysis which fits the story of former CIA asset Susan Lindauer who tells of three “truck vans” arriving at the WTC at 3 a.m. on “ten to twelve nights” between August 23 and September 3 or 4, leaving by 5 a.m. (Lindauer, “Extreme Prejudice/ The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Coverups of 9/11 and Iraq” 2010 p. 29) Materials were seen moved into parts of the buildings that were closed in the daytime as if for renovation, noted by WTC occupants as peculiar. Presumably to hold mini nukes or thermite bombs.
The other tie to a hurricane is the NOAA graph showing tropical storm Erin coming in from Africa, heading toward the Gulf of Mexico, a turn north on September 6, northwest a day later when it appears to establish a base from which it takes a bee line toward Cape Cod. On the fourth day of this unlikely straight line for an Atlantic hurricane, namely September 11, a NASA photo shows the outer bands of Eric reaching within 170 miles of the World Trade Center site pouring dust southward and southwest into the harbor. Having done her duty, Erin turned 145 degrees to head due east–at a moment when the HAARP crew could have been informed that both towers were gone–“dustified.”
Dr. Wood admits that this subject requires more explanation. It is rich with coincidence such as the obvious lack of comment in the Times even though it was a major hurricane and the first Atlantic hurricane of the year. Had Erin not turned as it did when the Trade Center towers went to dust its eye would have touched Long Island about September 14, conceivably a Sandy-like track. My suggestion concerning the difference in analysis between the engineers and Dr. Wood is that plotters may well have used both HAARP and the planted explosives, not certain if they could pull off their attempt at formation of a “Tesla coil.” (These show up in nature during tornadoes, to do things like jabbing a straw through a wooden pole as molecules of the pole and the straw separate, then reform.)
In the case of Sandy, her birthright must be examined because of her unprecedented and atypical formation. In late October there was no Bermuda high pressure system left to pull the storm around in the Atlantic to the northeast, the usual fate of a tropical storm in the Atlantic. The climatologists in Europe, with more advanced equipment, were the first to display the correct route toward Atlantic City, while the Americans offered a bouquet of waving varicolored strands that confused a warning. An unusually large nor’easter met the Atlantic storm from the land side, its several-hundred-mile length and its winds merging with Sandy’s larger mass, still strong with hurricane force because the Atlantic Ocean that year was five degrees warmer than normal. The eye of Sandy was pulled against the moving mass from the West by a “U” in the jet stream so that thus joined, the masses would comprise an outsized monster more than 1,000 miles across, improbably heavy with water transported by high winds, affecting 24 states. This includes Ohio for Lake Erie damage, which is scheduled for part of the appropriation of $50.5 billion that finally came through three months (91 days) after Sandy put so many lives on “hold.”
HAARP, from its Alaskan base, is central to the question “whodunit?” It has had expert discussion for years, including several excellent books not yet banned, an early one being the late Rosalie Bertell’s Planet Earth / The Latest Weapon of War (2000). Bertell, only recently deceased, was a Canadian member of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart, holder of many awards including five honorary doctorates. She tells of Nikola Tesla’s discoveries, such as use of electromagnetic force to cause earthquakes prior to 1900. She tells about ELF waves and Russia’s early involvement with Tesla’s ideas. At page 131: “The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy.”
Two books whose authors have mastered this subject are Dr. Nick Begich of Alaska with Angels Don’t Play This HAARP (2002, with co-author Jeane Manning), and the late Jerry E. Smith (died too young on March 13, 2010) of California, with Weather Warfare / The Military’s Plan to Draft Mother Nature (2006). Begich and Smith star in the History Channel DVD “Weather Warfare.” Smith wrote an earlier book entitled HAARP / The ultimate weapon of the Conspiracy (1998) which contains patent language, drawings, old news articles including a 9/22/1940 article from the Times headed “Death Ray for Planes,” a Tesla offer to build a dozen plants for $2 million, taking three months to construct, that would melt the motor in airplanes 250 miles away and thus build a Chinese wall around the country. The article favored the idea, as a small cost for a country in preparation for war. The “teleforce,” as it was called, would save billions. Tesla stressed his stipulation that he “would not suffer interference from experts.” (p.56) They didn’t take him up on it, possibly because FDR was afraid it would work. You will recall that he moved the aircraft carriers out of Pearl Harbor so they would be intact to fight following the expected attack.
The program advanced during the Bush/Cheney administration, well-known within the U.S. Congress as had been the ENMOD Treaty in 1977, eagerly joined by the US and the USSR, both involved in “environmental modification”(ENMOD) including earthquakes, which “modify the environment.” DARPA can move the jet stream to create or divert tornadoes and hurricanes as with British Petroleum’s fatal well site in the Gulf of Mexico, exempted from hurricanes for three years so far. During the first season it was obvious that Mother Nature would be drafted to protect BP from having to face further damage by hurricane to complicate its status by oil-and detergent-filled storms loading residential and seaside vacation areas on Florida’s gulf coast to make the present damage seem minor. Having studied BP’s slimy-shady background I wrote that there would be no Gulf hurricanes that would seriously affect them. I hereby make that bet for year four.
The Critical Role of the “Chemtrail”
This is a “police state” subject. It refers to the long white trails left by tanker aircraft in the skies over the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. The subject has more importance than one might realize—an importance communicated by the remarkable intransigence of government agencies to even admit there is such a thing. If one asks the Air Force, or the Federal Aviation Administration, or any other federal agency, silently followed by all other agencies of state government and the mainstream media, what we “conspiracy theorists” think we see is actually the normal jet exhaust that follows jet aircraft at altitudes of 35,000 feet or higher, containing ice crystals and carbon dioxide. Not a boa constrictor. Only a garter snake.
While I have suggested calling the chemtrail a “PSA,” for “Police State Aerosol,” Wikipedia calls it a “Chemical conspiracy theory” with statements such as “the Chemtrail hoax has been investigated and refuted by many established and accredited universities, scientific organizations, and major media publications,” referencing a fact sheet published in 2000 “to dispel the rumors” issued by the Environmental Protection Agency, the FAA, the National Aeronautical and Space Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
How is it that this false cover can continue for fifteen years as earnest sky watchers persist in documenting their existence? William Thomas’ 2004 book Chemtrails Confirmed fully tells the story, as have many more authors in the continuing decade.
The most recent examinations are by Michael J. Murphy, producing two videos in his attempt to inform, the first one in 2010 that a friend called to my attention: What in the World Are They Spraying? I had assessed the subject as a minor nuisance—thus giving me a personal understanding of the blank stare of some 98 or 99 percent of the population today who simply haven’t looked. I simply hadn’t looked. Having looked, the subject for me has come to play a role like watching a daily reminder that we have been imprisoned below these white, all-consuming bars. Murphy’s new video, released in August and titled Why in the World Are They Spraying? is highly pertinent for weather forecasters, parents, farmers, and absolutely essential for those who wish to bet on the weather at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. It is most instructive for those who would view with their own eyes, from their own property, the day-by-day confirmation of a police state.
I can tell you of the situation in central Ohio from my own records, which begin on February 13, 2011. In the calendar year 2012 there were 262 days in which I observed chemtrails, none on 34. All-day thick overcast made viewing impossible on 70 days. I have been both honest and conservative in this count. For accuracy in import, I would include those 70 with the 262, for 332 days (roughly 90 %), because I have repeatedly watched, and photographed, chemtrails lain across the sky row after row, the older ones already grown, in two hours swelling and merging into brownish cloud banks to blot out the entire sky—which hides other chemtrails and the sun, and anything else above a few thousand feet. Even with cirrus clouds or cloud cover, I do not count a chemtrail unless it is clearly unnatural. In 2011 I saw none on 29 days, with viewing impossible on 96. One striking difference was a series of five days in October of 2011 with no clouds, no chemtrails or trace thereof, as the sky day by day lost its haze and became a true blue. This was unique, and although I could not measure or record the scent, to me it smelled like fresh air, the kind Clifford Carnicom lost in 1998. On October 4,5,6,7 and 8 of 2011 the skies were free morning to night. The uniqueness of these five days is underlined by my further counts in which I found no four-day or three-day series since I began counting, and only nine sets of two days in two years. They are also made at night, floating into this area. Our weather is under constant control. If a meteorologist contests this conclusion, he should watch Murphy’s DVD.
On an auto trip to D.C. from Columbus in 2011, and on my return a few days later, I saw skies of chemtrails the entire distance both ways. Add to Ohio: Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.
As you read this, if you have visible sky the odds are that you will see these trails being made, or view their elongated clouds as they stretch across the sky and slowly expand into haze. It takes persistence to keep a complete record. If I don’t see them as the sun comes up I must keep an eye out until sunset. It requires dedication to the count.
Tests have shown that chemtrails contain metal sulfates–barium, aluminum, and strontium, recently a report from Europe that they now contain fluoride. A number of other chemicals for particular purposes are best described by Carnicom. He explains the concept of “plenum,” which is important in understanding the effect of chemtrails, whether being used for weather control or something else. The earth’s atmosphere is a plenum because every particle of atmosphere contains the same elements as in his example of the full bathtub containing pure water. If one puts a drop of red dye in the tub, every drop of water in the tub will contain its percentage of that drop of red dye. It will not show, but it is there. As one adds more to the tub, at some point a pinkish cast will appear. Whatever is included in a chemtrail at 35 or 40,000 feet or so, when its cloud has been made and dispersed so that the sky shows “clear,” the chemical content is becoming part of the world’s atmosphere. If it is a debilitating element, all people will be affected, as they will if it is an element that only changes natural weather to cause, for instance, more severe drought, which is the predicted result of long-term spraying in the atmosphere.
Carnicom, living in New Mexico in 1998 found the cloudless blue sky there an irreplaceable fixture of that state’s scenic environment. It was losing its blue, becoming hazy—the generator of haze being long white streams following jets at high altitude as the streams swelled into long white clouds turning the blue sky into grey as they expanded. Carnicom has since devoted his life to analysis of this subject. Dr. James F. Tracy, Associate Professor of Communications at Florida Atlantic University, gives an account of Carnicom’s work and experience following a December 10, 2012 conversation with Carnicom on GlobalSkyWatch in which Carnicom emphasized the biological aspect of chemtrails, concluding with his humble statement in answer to a question: “How do we get this to stop? How do we get the government to respond to us?” His answer includes a John F. Kennedy quote: “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
He goes on to answer with the deep seriousness that the subject deserves:
Just skip the patriotic aspect of it and ask yourself what you’re going to do. The first thing that I would do is extend to every one of us the necessity for involvement and using your talents. The second thing is that our world has been transformed now. Normal things don’t work. Frustration does not eliminate the call for duty that exists upon each of us … This is more a level of consciousness and awareness, of planting a seed, but the level that is going to be required is so different in this world than anything that has been imagined in terms of the right to a healthful and peaceful existence on this planet, it’s going to have to happen at a level that we’re not thinking of right now because the normal processes are not working. The Million Man March doesn’t cut it. I wish that I could answer simply what it is going to be. But it is going to (require) a shift in consciousness and awareness that is so forthright and direct that all of the games and manipulations—and the business of three, four, six companies controlling the media—no longer works and no longer applies. I don’t want it to be decades in our future.
This response contains a painful recognition, and a sadness, that I share. With a lawyer’s reaction, I submit that my property, my family, and my cat are being medicated without due process of law. Whom do I sue? As a citizen, I must realize that if this clearly obvious spraying is admitted by the government as fact, it will undermine or destroy the “plausible deniability” which permits secret warfare to defend our nation (assuming that is necessary). For the loyal citizen of course it causes the same conflict as with the costly disaster of Hurricane Sandy, or our grand historic event that occurred on 9/11/01, when the U.S. was placed under police-state procedures which had been prepared for instant application after 9/11 when fear and dismay would create an atmosphere for acceptance.
Chemtrails were in our skies even before that Bush/Cheney event, for weather control along with HAARP, guiding storms by movement of air pressure differentials. Chemtrails would have been useful for the impact of Hurricane Sandy, or for the cascade of tornadoes ripping up Texas and Oklahoma this year. We excuse Mother Nature for the death of humans and ruin of our property, because we know rain and wind and snow and ice are inevitable and that Mother Nature follows principles such that she cannot avoid harm when humans get in the way. But when some high-level controller has Mother’s arms tied behind her back so that he can kill the humans of his choice, it allows a new depth of evil. Those few who do not shrug are those aware of the permanence of chemtrails and the continuing increase in metal content in the atmosphere that we all must breathe.
Carnicom’s emphasis is on the content of chemtrails. These are metal sulfate showers sucked into our lungs which have sometimes contained toxins, and could be used for population control today or tomorrow without notice. They are already believed by many analysts to cause breathing disorders, increase asthma, and to result in pneumonia especially for young children. Mind control has been a hidden federal activity for many years. The accepted, ignored, almost daily use of large-volume tanker aircraft could begin this role with no alteration in its appearance. The tanker pilots would not know, or being foreigners, would say “that’s war for you,” just as they note the cynical disrespect for innocent life in U.S. drone attacks in the Middle East.
*James Hanson is a native of Nebraska and graduate of Oberlin College. His first job was as reporter for the Defiance, Ohio Crescent-News. Drafted, he was with the Korea Military Advisory Group (KMAG) 1952-1953. His law degree is from the University of Michigan, where he learned the importance of well-drafted legislation.
For the Ohio Water Commission, born of the 1959 flood, Hanson assisted in creating an intelligent framework for water management. He was legal advisor to the Director of Natural Resources, then legislative counsel for the Ohio Legislative Service Commission.
In private practice Hanson’s long-term representations were for environmental organizations such as the volunteer Water Management Association of Ohio and the Ohio Water Development Authority, bond-issuing agency for municipal sewer and water facilities. The Wildlife Legislative Fund and the Wildlife Legislative Fund of America became his major clients, which he created under the direction of James H. Glass as the defenders of sportsmen’s interests in Ohio and wherever wildlife laws came under attack. Their present successor is the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance.
Retired, Hanson was writing histories of immigration into Nebraska when he suddenly found himself duty-bound to concentrate on the flood of government falsehoods spilling over especially since 2001.
