One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Here is one link. Yes source debatable however, mass amount of info on the chemicals. They potentially can’t lie about that.

    From article:

    “The train that derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, on Feb. 3 was filled with several hazardous chemical compounds, documents from the railway company show — including the residue of one that is known for its link to genetic mutations.

    During the accident, 38 rail cars derailed and an additional 12 cars were damaged by a fire, according to an investigative update published by the National Transportation Safety Board on Tuesday. Of the 20 hazardous material cars in the train, half derailed, the company said.

    Five of those cars were carrying vinyl chloride, a gas used to make plastic, which the Norfolk Southern Railway Company then released in a controlled burn on Feb. 6. There was particulate matter detected because of the fire, but the EPA said that it did not detect chemical contaminants of concern in the hours following.

    “Residents in the area and tens of miles away may smell odors coming from the site. This is because the byproducts of the controlled burn have a low odor threshold,” the agency said at the time. “This means people may smell these contaminants at levels much lower than what is considered hazardous.”

    But according to documents published by the EPA on Monday, the cars were holding far more hazardous materials.

    In a remedial action work plan that the Norfolk Southern Railway Company submitted to the EPA on Feb. 10, the company said that the train cars that derailed contained several other hazardous materials, including butyl acrylate, ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, ethylhexyl acrylate and isobutylene. Two cars also had benzene residue. ”


    “Vinyl chloride is a known human carcinogen, according to the National Cancer Institute. The colorless manmade gas is used to make polyvinyl chloride, commonly referred to as PVC, a type of hard plastic resin. According to the Institute, the gas is linked to “an increased risk of a rare form of liver cancer” known as hepatic angiosarcoma. That type of cancer accounts for only 2% of liver tumors, and according to a 2018 journal publication, is “exceptionally deadly.” The average life expectancy for those who are diagnosed is just 10 months.

    It is also linked to primary liver cancer, brain and lung cancers, lymphoma and leukemia.

    The gas can be consumed by humans through inhalation, and the institute says that if a water supply becomes contaminated with the substance, the gas can also make its way into homes that use that water source for showering, cooking or laundry.

    Five train cars were carrying this substance at the time of the accident, according to a report published by the EPA on Sunday. According to a 2006 publication by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, the substance breaks down in the air within a few days, forming other chemicals such as hydrochloric acid, formaldehyde and carbon dioxide.

    Officials were worried that the burn would lead to phosgene and hydrogen chloride in the air, the former of which is a “major industrial chemical” that is a poisonous gas at 70 degrees Fahrenheit and was “used extensively during World War I as a choking (pulmonary) agent,” according to the CDC.

    “Among the chemicals used in the war, phosgene was responsible for the large majority of deaths,” the agency said. ”


  2. Remember the comments section an only handle a couple of links in one post. Ed


  3. There was a Netflix movie shot a few months ago in the exact same place about a train derailment and chemcial spill.
    What are the odds, eh?
    Life imitating art, again.

  4. Hi Ed.
    Sometimes when I try to post with links (specifically more than one) post just disappears. Yesterday was one of those days. I will try and post links separately.


  5. It would have to be your email server or search engine or some other anomaly because everybody else gets their many links through. Ed


  6. Could it be that “they” (Vanguard et al) are shorting out their investments in a controlled demolition of the Western economies to bail out their enablers in Govt in order to meet their collateralised debt obligations.
    Basically rigging the markets to make short term gains (with stock options & derivatives) to make payments on their astronomical debts. Kicking the can down the road to stay in power long enough to buy up all the private businesses under one giant umbrella of corporate control.
    Footnote Norfolk Southern had one of the most respected safety & prestige reputation in the industry before this incident according to railroad veteran call on Infowars

  7. I have been following this somewhat. Apparently this is also where the largest community of Amish live in America, (so just with that limited knowledge, guessing generally a very clean area, prime farmland, also the Amish don’t generally vaccinate). Regardless of that info, the substance on board was reported to be vinyl chloride. According to several articles I have read highly toxic, creates a somewhat acid rain. What is interesting is some outlets have said the company will deal with it all, convenient clearly, but in addition to that it has also been reported they did a “controlled burn”. No point posting links as this won’t go through.



    Trump most probably won’t become next President, neither will sleepy Joe, who it is rumoured, the other week had a moment after nodding off counting UFOs, Ukrainian $$$ in washing machines, having happy thoughts of 🎈🎈, 🍦 and holding hands with Greta.

    It’s a revelation, the deafening silence of old mate Red Rupert, spook media outlets and climate banshees, that are hellbent on pushing degenerative green agendas, all showing their true colours going MIA on Ohio’s environmental disaster and on supersleuth Seymour Hersh and insiders with a conscience maybe, pointing the bone at Joe’s administration, accusing it of environmental terrorism for the release of massive quantities of the global warming natural gasses methane and CO2 into the atmosphere over Greta’s back yard.

    Look, there’s a balloon!


  9. I see two significant outcomes here.

    (1) Toxic gas and acid rain have swept south-east on high winds well into Virginia. There may be immediate widespread eye, lung, and skin issues and, in the long term, cancer deaths. But on top of mRNA, who is to say which caused which? A few years down the track will be revealing.

    (2) The person responsible for repealing the reform to replace ancient (1868) technology air-brake systems with electronic systems, was Donald Trump. I think this ends any chance Trump had of clawing back the Presidency.

    (3) Every country in the world will now be looking nervously at their own rail system



    Watch Mike Adams to see what actually happened. You can make up your own mind.

    The EPA are either Traitors or insane, Probably both . The Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine trusts the EPA to have all the knowledge to handle the chemical spill correctly. I note the general media say the carriages burst into flame. Well yes they did. It was a controlled burn. I also noted the nice white smoke, like pure .We used to do them in the CFA . Never on chemicals though.In the actual footage notice the black mushroom cloud. Do you actually believe that is harmless. And listen carefully to the actual results of this burn.

    God help the people of Ohio. And let us not forget the air we breathe and the rubbish they put in it affects us all.

    The EPA act as if they know everything. Obviously they do not.


  11. Found on another site, and i think its relevant:

    “It’s just another industrial accident.”
