Active Duty Soldier Illegally Disarmed and Arrested

This is his story:

Published on Apr 15, 2013
On March 16, 2013, my son and I were hiking along country roads among pastures and fields with my 15-year old son to help him earn his hiking merit badge. I always enjoy these father/son hikes because it gives me time alone with my son. As I always do when we go on these hikes and walks, I took my trusty rifle with me as there are coyotes, wild hogs, and cougars in our area. In Texas, it is legal to openly carry a rifle or shotgun as long as you do so in a manner that isn't calculated to cause alarm. In other words, you can't walk around waving your rifle at people. I always carry my rifle slung across my chest dangling, not holding it in my hands.

At about the 5 mile mark of our hike, a voice behind us asked us to stop and the officer motioned for us to approach him. He got out of his car and met us a few feet later. He asked us what we were doing and I explained that we were hiking for my son's merit badge. He then asked me what I'm doing with the rifle, to which I responded in a calm manner, "Does it matter, officer? Am I breaking the law?"

At that point, the officer grabbed my rifle without warning or indication. He didn't ask for my rifle and he didn't suggest he would take it from me. He simply grabbed it. This startled me and I instantly pulled back - the rifle was attached to me - and I asked what he thought he was doing because he's not taking my rifle. He then pulled his service pistol on me and told me to take my hands off the weapon and move to his car, which I complied with. He then slammed me into the hood of his car and I remembered I had a camera on me (one of the requirements of the hiking merit badge is to document your hikes). This video is the rest of that encounter. Up to this point, I am not told why I am being stopped, why he tried to disarm me, or even that I'm under arrest.

We did not set out that Saturday morning to "make a point" or cause problems. Our goal was to complete a 10-mile hike and return home without incident. My son chose a route that was away from populated areas but near our home.

The arresting officer is Officer Steve Ermis and the supervisor is Sergeant Minnicks of the Temple Police Department.

If you agree this was a gross act of exceeded authority, please help me fight these charges:

Ammonium Nitrate Mixed With Negligence Behind Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion – experts

Ammonium Nitrate Mixed With Negligence Behind Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion – experts

The massive explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas, must have been caused by ammonium nitrate, and couldn’t have gone off without negligence by the facility’s employees, chemists who talked to RT about the incident agree.

The blast occurred on Wednesday night and was so powerful that it caused a 30-meter-fireball and was registered as a 2.1 magnitude quake by seismologists.

Police say between five and 15 people are estimated to have been killed in the disaster so far, but there are fears that the overall death toll will reach dozens.

More than 160 people have been taken to hospitals, with 24 of them in critical conditions. The city of West, which neighbors the plant, is evacuated due to the contamination by toxic fumes.

“The most likely cause of the powerful explosion is the ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer and pesticide, which is also a powerful explosive and is known to have caused quite a number of disasters around the world,” UK chemist Christopher Busby said. “America’s most deadly disaster, in Texas City in 1947, happened when a fire detonated 2,300 tons of ammonium nitrate stored on a ship.”

The expert added that apart from the damage from the blast itself and the fire it started in the neighborhood, the incident poses other risks to health. For instance, the Texas plant stored large amounts of ammonia, a gas used to produce ammonium nitrate.

“Ammonia is very toxic. It’s a respiratory irritant and it would cause serious upper respiratory tract problems. And it’s also produced when ammonium nitrate itself is heated up. If you heat it up to about 3,500 degrees, it dissociates into ammonia and nitride acid. These two would be quite toxic fumes to anyone inhaling them,” he explained.

Doctor John Price, a professor of mechanical engineering from Australia, stressed that such a larger amount of ammonium nitrate shouldn’t have been stored so close to an inhabited area. 

“Well, the question is the ammonium nitrate,”
he said. “Now, the quantities of ammonium nitrate that exploded during this event is about, I would say, something in the order of the hundred tons as the ammonium nitrate exploded, which means that was being stored only in the next block on the side of the town. And it resulted that the explosion has ripped through the town with a very strong pressure pulse, which has damaged many buildings.”

He also commented on the footage of the blast, speaking about its possible causes and pointing out some lethal mistakes which were made as the crisis was tackled.

“People were watching the fire from a distance of about 1km from the plant. The fire was very large at that stage and what happens is the fire then goes underneath probably one of the ammonium nitrate storage vessels and eventually heats it up until it explodes. It takes about half-an-hour to an hour for fire to explode in an ammonium nitrate storage vessel."

“So this is what has happened, that the fire has got out of control and basically heated up the vessel. What seems to me to be wrong about this whole incident is that instead of evacuating the plant, when the fire establishment could not control it, there seemed to be brought up more and more fire people and they were putting them at risk. I don’t know, it sounds as if there have been a lot of deaths among fire people,” he added.
The chief safety expert at the Russia’s Nitrogen Industry Institute, Igor Solovyev, reminded that there haven’t been any serious accidents at fertilizer plants in half a century and that serious violations of safety arrangements must have led to the Texas explosion.

”The burning of some flammable materials could’ve caused the blast,”
he said.

“Undoubtedly, the human factor is to blame here. It’s 100 per cent. There aren’t that many things, which can explode at the fertilizer production. The ammonium nitrate or saltpeter is, possibly, the only one. The explosions of the ammonium nitrate stated occurring about 80 years ago when the technologies were only being developed and the switch to large-scale produce was made. Back then it happened due to the lack of information. But there were no such explosions during the last 50 years.

“The fire-safety rules must’ve been violated. I don’t know about the US, but in Russia the organic, flammable materials are forbidden from being stored together with ammonium nitrate. They could’ve simply brought some timber and organize a temporary storage. If it caught fire and the saltpeter was around – especially, if it was in an enclosed space – it could’ve promoted the detonation,”
Solovyev added.


‘False-flag’ Meme Goes Mainstream on Boston Marathon Bombings

On September 11th, 2001, the US media began chanting “Bin Laden” in unison almost from the moment the attack was reported. The possibility that US government insiders had orchestrated the attack - in order to blame Muslims, launch wars on Muslim countries, and seize near-absolute power - was never mentioned.

Bin Laden's repeated statements that he deplored the 9/11 attacks, considered them un-Islamic, and suspected that American supporters of Israel were behind them failed to penetrate the corporate media bubble. When the FBI definitively stated that Bin Laden was “not wanted” for 9/11 because there was “no hard evidence” of his involvement, the media blacked out the story.

But after the Boston bombings of April 16th, 2013, even the corporate monopoly media could no longer ignore the possibility of a false-flag attack. Yahoo News asked “Who's behind the Boston Marathon bombings?” and offered 4 theories: (1) Islamic jihadists, (2) Right-wing militia types, (3) the government, and (4) a criminally-insane lone wolf.

Numbers (1), (2), and (4), of course, are the usual suspects. But including (3) “the government” on the suspects list is unprecedented for a mainstream news story reporting on a domestic terror incident.

The false-flag meme's growing prominence was underlined at Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick's press conference after the bombings. The first question for Governor Patrick came from Infowars correspondent Dan Bidondi, who asked whether the bombings were “a false-flag staged take away our civil liberties.” Patrick, of course, answered “no.”

Even the Atlantic Monthly, a neocon-lite magazine associated with names like Goldberg and Hitchens, felt compelled to publish a story headlined: “What Is a 'False Flag' Attack, and What Does Boston Have to Do with This?” Amazingly, the Atlantic article stated that yes, there is historical precedent for viewing the Boston bombing as a false-flag event. The author, Philip Bump, even admitted: “If the Boston attack had been a 'false flag' attack, Gov. Patrick would have responded 'no' anyway.”

What has changed since 2001 to bring the false-flag meme into the limelight?

Short answer: The 9/11 truth movement. During the past decade, millions of activists have been working to awaken the American and global publics to the evidence that 9/11 was an American Reichstag Fire. Polls show that 36% of Americans - roughly 100 million people - think it likely that 9/11 was an inside job. Many of these truth-seekers are highly-accomplished scientists, engineers, military and intelligence officers, and other experts. You can meet some of them at and

Since the corporate mainstream media and the foundation-funded pseudo-alternative media have refused to report the facts about 9/11, roughly 100 million Americans consider the media moguls pathological liars. Even among the almost 200 million Americans who are not up-front 9/11 skeptics, the vague sense that something is wrong, and that the media and the politicians are lying, is widespread. A recent Pew Research poll, for example, showed that Americans' trust in government has fallen to an all-time low: Fewer than one-third of Americans trust the government, while more than two-thirds do not.
As the people lose faith in their government, and the corporate media crumbles into bankruptcy, a vibrant new independent media has sprung up on the internet. The Alex Jones media empire, which pushes the false-flag meme about as hard as it can be pushed, now reaches an estimated five to ten million people. Jeff Rense, Mike Adams, Mike Rivero, Veterans Today, American Free Press, and the foreign-run English language outlets Press TV and Russia Today also reach large and influential audiences with honest reporting about false-flag events.

Today, it isn't just a few marginalized radical intellectuals who think “false-flag” when they hear about an alleged domestic terror incident. Millions of people are sharing their suspicions about the Boston bombings on Facebook, Twitter, the blogosphere, and internet media in general.

Are they right?

Though it is too early to know for sure, the Boston bombings featured the most important telltale sign of a false-flag op: A terror drill running simultaneously, mirroring the actual attack. As Webster Tarpley has explained in his book 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA, false-flag attacks such as 9/11 and 7/7 are designed as drills that suddenly “go live.” This allows insiders to plot and execute the attacks under cover of the drills, with the “Team B” bad guys actually carrying out the attacks they were supposedly going to feign.

September 11th, 2001 had been previously designated as by far the biggest special operations day in US history, with a total of 46 pre-planned drills and exercises, including live-fly planes-into-buildings exercises, providing cover for the insider attacks. (Google “Tarpley 46 drills of 9/11” for details.)

July 7th, 2005 also featured terror drills that went live. Peter Power, the UK's biggest terror consultant, admitted on live television that all of the actual bombs that devastated London that day exploded at the exact times and places envisioned in the drills.

Were the Boston bombings a drill that went live?

Mobile, Alabama TV station Local TV 15 reported:

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

At 12:53 pm local time, the Boston Globe newspaper tweeted: “Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”

Then almost two hours later, at 2:50 p.m., bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 100 others.

Just a coincidence? Maybe. But since all of the biggest “terror attacks” in recent US history, including the two World Trade Center bombings and the Oklahoma City bombing, have been inside jobs, and since most of the “terror plots” discovered in the US since 9/11 have been created by the FBI, we have every right to be suspicious.

Terror bombings have only one beneficiary: Governments, and the wealthy families that own them.

As Vincent Vinciguerra, one of the perpetrators of the Operation Gladio terror attacks, explained: “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force . . . the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

Whatever the truth about the Boston bombings, it seems that the false-flag meme is infiltrating mainstream discourse. And it isn't going to go away . . . at least not until 9/11 and other false-flag crimes are solved, and effective measures instituted to protect the public against the scourge of false-flag terror.
