Today is April 19th. Today is the 20th anniversary of the dreadful end of the Waco Siege and Massacre, when Janet Reno and Bill Clinton cleared Federal agents to set fire to the Branch Davidians’ compound in Waco, Texas, killing all 76 men, women and children inside.
Today is also the 18th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, when the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in downtown Oklahoma City was blown up, killing 168 people. The blast was so powerful that 324 buildings within a sixteen-block radius were destroyed or damaged, 86 cars were burned, and glass shattered in 258 nearby buildings. Timothy McVeigh was sentenced to death for his role in the attack, although how a ‘truck bomb loaded with fertilizer’ caused so much damage remains a mystery. We were told he did it to avenge the Waco massacre and oppose the Federal Government’s ‘gun control measures’. The Oklahoma City Bombing went down in history as a case of ‘domestic terrorism’ by wannabe revolutionaries, but everyone ought to know by now that that was a ‘Noble’ Lie.
Four days ago on April 15th 2013, Tax Day in the U.S., someone set off two shrapnel bombs at the Boston Marathon. The resulting carnage is identical to that seen in Baghdad day in, day out for 10 years. The Boston Tea Party was a key turning point in the growth of the American revolutionary movement. The annual Marathon is always held on the third Monday in April – Patriots’ Day – a public holiday in Northeastern U.S. states to commemorate the opening battles of the American Revolutionary War – the Battles of Lexington and Concord – on April 19th, 1775.
Patriot Day is, of course, since 2001, marked on September 11th. The Boston Bombings are the first terrorist attack on U.S. soil in 11 years. And, just for good measure, another round of ‘poisoned letters‘ were sent to members of Congress and the President himself, again taking us back to the Anthrax scare in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.
Victims of the December 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut were honoured in this year’s Boston Marathon, with surviving family members seated among the spectators at the finish line where the bombs went off. Speaking of mass shootings, tomorrow, April 20th, is the 14th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre. ‘Gun control’ remains the same divisive issue in America today that it was following the Oklahoma City bombing. A bill to enforce stricter background checks on firearms purchases was narrowly defeated in Congress the day after the Boston Bombings. The real issue, of course, is mind control, not gun control. That is after all why they’re named ‘psychological operations’…
Yesterday, April 18th, 2013, an enormous explosion at a ‘fertilizer retail facility’ outside the small town of West, Texas, barely 10 miles north of Waco, Texas, left between 5 and 30 residents and emergency response personnel dead. In fact, the site is closer to the township of Elk, where the Branch Davidian compound was located, than it is to the town of Waco itself. Like so much about this incident, the numbers are hazy. What is known is that the blast was so large that it left a mushroom cloud in the sky, measured 2.1 on the Richter Scale, and was heard and felt up to 50 miles away. Oh, and NBC News today reminds us that the fertilizer stored there was allegedly ‘the same type used in the Oklahoma City Bombing‘…

In this time of rampant corruption by the elites, austerity measures for the rest of us and strange signs in the sky, I’ve got to ask: Are events being deliberately staged to keep people afraid and supportive of their government against anyone who speaks out against said government? The ‘hidden hand’ of shadowy actors is certainly behind some of it. And while they may or may not be oblivious to the fact that the people are restless from all the warmongering, electioneering, excessive taxation and signs of significant environmental change, I think we see in these events that the themes of state repression, social unrest and revolution are being expressed through these symbolic markers.
Whatever the extent of the ‘hidden hand’ of dark actors, I wonder if, in the greater scheme of things, our symbolic universe or cosmos organizes events through human mass consciousness? The psychopaths in power believe themselves capable of bending reality in their favour by manipulating the consciousness of crowds. But if it’s true that ‘the past’, just like ‘facts’, is an alien concept to them, and if it’s true that ‘wishful thinking will get you every time’, I rather suspect that far from being ‘the creators of reality‘, the so-called Powers That Be ultimately serve a higher purpose they have no understanding of; that they are “Part of that power which would do evil constantly and constantly does good.”
Some people are getting worked up about this Family Guy cartoon that ‘predicted’ the Boston Bombings. It didn’t really do that of course, although there were some unsettling similarities. Like The Simpsons cartoon ‘predicting’ 9/11, are these ‘prophetic glitches’ (for want of a better term) examples of the mass consciousness – or rather, the mass unconscious – speaking to itself, through symbols and signs, from ‘the future’, so to speak?
Events have meaning to the extent that people give them meaning. Often the events are crafted and their meaning given to them by certain people for the purpose of beguiling masses of other people. But regardless of how they get their meaning, reminders of past events during current unfolding events can serve as warnings of probable futures. In Boston this week, the U.S. received a tiny taste of the probable future that awaits it – bloody annihilation into an utter wasteland, like Iraq – if people don’t take notice of the signs and align what they see of reality with how the universe sees it.
“Humans have always unknowingly affected all the Universe by every act and thought they articulate or even consider. . . . Realistic, comprehensively responsible, omni-system-considerate, unselfish thinking on the part of humans does absolutely affect human destiny.” – Buckminster Fuller
What is clear is that folks are picking up on the ‘connectedness’ of it all, consciously or otherwise. Take this comment from D.L. Wilson of the Texas Public Safety Department, who yesterday described the West, Texas ‘fertilizer’ explosion as “massive – just like Iraq, just like the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City.”
When I first watched this video of the Texas explosion, I wondered if something had exploded into the building from the left side, but I quickly discarded this on the grounds that a fire was already underway. After all, what are the odds of two discrete events being connected in this way – a fire followed by an apparently unrelated explosion caused by a projectile coming from elsewhere?
But then my colleague Joe Quinn pointed me to this version of the video, where the impact footage is seen in slow-motion towards the end:
Just before the facility blew up, you see grey-black smoke blowing away from the fire, but also what may be a separate source of brighter light or flame appearing from the left hand side. Here’s a frame taken at 1’07:
It seems that we’re not the only ones who suspect that something hit the site from above. Here’s the explosion from another, wider angle:
An impactor from above, perhaps? Well, stranger things have happened…
Exactly 6 months before the Boston Bombings, on October 15th 2012, an apparent comet fragment blew up over Louisiana, resulting in a massive shockwave that sent glass flying in the town of Camp Minden and left debris strewn across a railway track. This incident, by the way, was blamed on a “munition dump explosion”…
By way of closing comment, I’ll just remark that Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad yesterday told journalists “the West” would “pay a price” for backing al Qaeda against his government and people. How interesting then that a town called ‘West’ in Texas was then partially destroyed, “as if by nuclear explosion”. If in fact it was slammed by a meteor, well now, that would be the icing on the cake of a very portentous week indeed for the USA.
