Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

During the spacecraft’s approach, the Earth appeared as a crescent. The drawing (generated by the SwRI-developed Geometry Visualization tool) shows the appearance of the Earth as seen from the spacecraft. The red outline shows the orientation of the long slit off the Alice spectrograph. The image of the Earth was taken around the same time by the OSIRIS camera on Rosetta. The plot shows one of the spectra the Alice instrument obtained during this approach to Earth. Some of the emission lines are identified. Caption: SWRI

Google’s Top 10 List of ‘Holy Cows’

Posted by feww on January 15, 2010

Google Censorship Continues

Google’s censorship of Fire-Earth and affiliated blogs listed below goes from strength to strength

Any of our blog entries that criticizes a public figure, corporation, faulty product, or advises our readers against something deemed to be harmful,  is automatically filtered out and buried by the Internet mafia’s search engines.

So far, even a mere mention of the following names in the blogs’ entries has resulted in those posts receiving up to 100 times fewer hits than the average entries do on the respective blogs.

Example: When Google “disliked” Sarah Palin, Hilarious Polar Bear News! received about 550 hits per day.

This Week: Sarah Palin Joins TV Network for Mentally Challenged has received less than 7 hits per day.

OK, she is no longer running for the No. 2 job in the country, but she is still a high profile figure. Further, there are numerous other examples that verify our findings.

Google’s Top 10 List of “Holy Cows”

1. President Obama

2. Rahm Israel Emanuel, Nancy Plosi, and all other high profile politicians

3. Sarah Palin [also: Dick Cheney, George W Bush, Colin Powell, especially John McCain]

4. Pat Robertson [Judeo-Christianity, Zionism, 9/11 issues, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, Gaza Occupation …]

5. Fox News, CNN and All Google partners (Fire-Earth believes that Google delays listing of many blog posts on the internet, thereby allowing its partners to duplicate and broadcast the topic/concept before the bloggers’ messages become searchable.

6. American Airlines (as well as Air New Zealand and all other airlines listed on FEWW Top 10 Most Dangerous Airlines list.)

7. The United Nations, Nato, Red Cross, FBI, the Church, Wall Street …

8. The Pope, Ban ki Moon (and other highly paid UN employees),  Ben [NOT Benjamin] Shalom Bernanke, Bernard Madoff

9. The Royal families [including the King of Saudi Arabia, their herd of princes and more princes, Emir of Dubai and their offspring, king of Thailand, as well as Presidents/PMs and high profile politicians in Israel, France, UK …]

10.  Any corporation, organization, product or concept that Google or its partners have a stake in, or could be affected by the adverse publicity through association. See also The Suckers List of ‘Ethical Companies’

Haiti EQ Disaster – Update 15 Jan

Posted by feww on January 15, 2010

Seismic Waves from ‘Heaven’ For Aid Organizations

Despite millions of dollars already donated to Haiti survivors, aid is only trickling in!

Most aid organizations, which at any rate only pass on only about FIVE percent of all donations received, run huge cash deficits because of their overheads, especially 6-figure wages to their executives,  and have to pay off their debts before worrying about mundane things like looking after the injured, starved and homeless victims of disasters.

FEWW initially estimated the EQ casualties, the dead and the seriously injured, to be  20,000. This estimate was based on shakemaps, the time the quake occurred and several other factors. This estimate might prove to be wildly inaccurate, but that’s the best we’ve got right now.

The Red Cross estimates 45,000-50,000 people dead as a result of earthquake.To get such a definitive estimate, “no less than 45,000,” would take days if not weeks of painstaking research. It’s therefore  more likely that their estimate is a political and financially motivated statement. See footnote.

As luck often has it for the aid/charity mafia, however, the Haitian govt has decided the only way to deal with the mounting piles of dead bodies is to unceremoniously bulldoze them into mass graves.

That means no such luxuries as corpse identification, death certificates or even a prayer for the dead. What’s important right now, is to worry about the survivors, especially those still trapped, the injured, the starving and the homeless.

Truck drivers and bulldozer operators would be the only ones who could provide a reliable estimate as to the number of the dead [sic.]

“We have already buried 7,000 in a mass grave,” President Rene Preval said.

It’s not known whether the figure he quoted was an exact number or a rough estimate.

Pat Robertson’s Unparalleled Bigotry

Pat Robertson, the head bigot of American Evangelism, steals the bigotry biscuit, as usual, for making the most egregiously racist and inhuman remark. Robertson was quoted as saying Haiti had been “cursed” because of what he called a “pact with the devil” earlier in its history.

So here’s our question to Mr Robertson:

FEWW believes New York City could be struck by a megaquake (MQ) in the not so distant future.

If the NY MQ were to occur, would you stay faithful to your god and blame the destruction on Bloomberg, his tribe and Mammon?

Haitians react to televangelist Pat Robertson’s ‘devil pact’ remarks

Highlights of News Reports:

  • The survivors are desperate for water, food, medical supplies, lifting equipment and doctors.
  • There’s NO coordinated relief effort, many more trapped in the rubble, which could otherwise be saved, will die.
  • Obama soundbyte: “To the people of Haiti, we say clearly and with conviction, you will not be forsaken, you will not be forgotten.”
  • British PM Gordon Brown soundbyte:  ” [Haiti] must become the center of our world’s attention, the world’s compassion and the world’s humanitarian help.”
  • About 1,500 bodies were stacked inside and outside the mortuary by noon local time yesterday,  Reuters reported the director of Port-au-Prince’s general hospital as saying.
  • UNSG  BanKi-moon said it could be days before even an  estimate of the death toll from the quake could be made.

Kudos to Cuban Doctors

  • Cuba’s more than 300 doctors in Haiti stayed on after the earthquake and have continued to treat the injured.

Anger Grows Over Aid Delay

  • Angry survivors have staged protests, blocking roads in Port-au-Prince, reports say.  Two and a half days after the quake tens of thousands of people clamored for water, food and other basic needs. They are desperate for help to dig out their relatives from the ruble.
  • “Please do anything you can, these people have no water, no food, no medicine, nobody is helping us,” Reuters quoted a rescue worker as saying.

Please help the victims, anyway you can. There are many ways to help the survivors. But donate money only to the organizations that you know and trust.

[If you believe  Pat Robertson’s BS, the victims need your help to break their pact with the devil.]
