Saskatchewan Government Orders SaskPower to remove Smart Meters = Fire Hazard

July 30, 2014

Wednesday, July 30, 2014. -(24˚C / 75˚F @ 5:40 pm Where I’m at.)-

((( Sounds like a busy night for Coast to Coast am News Watchers.)))

Scrolling headlines in the ‘Crawl’ on the CBC News Channel here has a couple interesting items. One is the blurb about the Province Of Saskatchwan’s  Government Ordering their power company to end its Smart Meter Programme.  The first couple times I saw the message it said “Sask Power to remove Smart Meters over Fire Hazard”. Somebody changed the Message to read, “Saskatchewan Gov’t Orders SaskPower to End Smart Meter Program”

Another Message of Note: “Excessive drinking of Soda Impairs Teenagers’ Brains”

& ‘Let’s die at least defending our land,’ says Ontario’s First Nations Chief’

‘Gas company sues tiny village for $1.5M – 5 times its annual budget’  ((I have to link this one)) —> Town of 168 People in Quebec <— Because the village passed a by-law establishing a no-drill zone near its potable water sources. (Radio-Canada)

Couple gets threatening letter for flying gay pride flag.

{Also = not direct quotes:

The G20 handling of riots by Toronto Police – Plus the Toronto Police handling of the Mayor Rob Ford Alleged Crack Cocaine smoking Video – led to the Toronto Police Board Not appointing Chief Of Police Bill Blair to a third term.  }

This is from a Friend on Facebook:

“Steam Injection Fracking Caused Major Alberta Bitumen Leak | The Tyee
thetyee.ca
Review finds fractures spread like cracks on a frozen lake, resulting in uncontrolled seepage.”
From Linked Page:
A new independent technical review on the cause of a large and costly 2013 bitumen leak in northern Alberta found a form of hydraulic fracturing that injects steam into the ground to be the main culprit.

Should I include the headline, “Devoted octopus mom holds her eggs for 4.5 years”?

-Let’s hope the good stuff (above) isn’t just a weird leak of positive news from a parallel dimension.

Front Page of Independent Canadian News Blog

This is a cropped screen shot of the finished project.

—We stayed up all last night, soaking our feet and listening to Coast to Coast a.m. — and knocking ourselves out to improve the looks and ‘feel’ of a News Blog begun in 2009.

—I think it came out well, but then we were thinking (and you know, thinking can be dangerous) that all our back pages and postings etc were on a WordPress Server somewhere, and if the fit hits the shan with a cosmic event or Solar Flare inspired EMP, or something equally heartbreaking, we’re dead in the water. (( Jim had a website hosted by Crosswinds, a Canadian company with servers in New York City… And that web site evaporated on 2001/09/11… Eek?)) So we decided to try to put together another WordPress Blog, Self-Hosted on a server we pay for, where we can periodically download everything and try to keep it safely tucked away inside a Faraday cage somewhere friendly.  You’re looking at it. And I’m using the (above) Screen Shot to see how the Theme we’re looking at likes graphics, and what sizes and how well they display and whether or not this Theme gives you the whole story or just a teaser.

—We’re about to publish this first article and see what we’ve got here.

From Independent Canadian News: A “Must Read” Review -by ‘Aerendel-Jim’

A ‘Must Read’ I should have added before

Thursday, 24 July, 2014.

Book Cover

Nothing In This Book Is True, But It’s Exactly How Things Are” by Bob Frissell. Is a book with quite a title. (I think Amazon dot CA {Canada} has the kindle version for something like $8.34 Canadian$)

The first time I discovered the Radio Programme “Coast to Coast A.M.” (With Art Bell in those days) Bob Frissell was being interviewed on the subject of this book. I was immediately hooked— on both the talk radio late night programme and the book. It’s been a while since I first tried to absorb and understand what was in that book…

The author explained that beings in a civilization on Mars realized their planet was in danger of being completely wiped out, they looked around and built a time machine, jumped a million years into their future and landed on Earth. They immediately tried to conquer the locals, who happened to be the inhabitants of what we now call Atlantis. The Atlantians kicked their butts, and let them live. The aliens (which may be the greys that are famously abducting people these days?) waited a while and tried to conquer the Atlantians again. The Atlantians kicked their butts a second time and sort of confined them to a reservation somewhere around what is now the Yucatan area of Mexico. When these aliens came to the conclusion that a comet was going to collide with the Earth, they went to the Atlantians and said they could take care of the comet for them. But the Atlantians told them that the Comet was God’s Will and wouldn’t endorse their plan. The aliens then tried to rebuild their time machine but got something wrong and when they tried to use it, they tore the fabric of whatever maintained the inter-dimensional integrity around here and instantaneously knocked the planet from ‘Golden Age’ status way down ‘Everybody on the planet got real stupid real fast’ status, and other dimensional creatures that should not be, don’t like it here, don’t want to be here — were released and began to mess with our peace of mind.

I came away thinking that if this was not the literal Truth of our pre-recorded History (Or history that had been recorded and then lost when idiots burned down the Great Library in Alexandria)- Then it might be sort of Poetically True, like a parable, or something the author could get away with saying because the forces of darkness and evil would have torn him apart and burned his manuscripts if he tried to tell the actual truth.

There’s a whole lot more to this book, and to the author. And I am desperate to get my hands on another copy of this and see if I can absorb and digest any more than I did last time ((Now that my ego believes I might have more wisdom and the ability to see through b.s. a little more clearly than I could twenty years ago?)) — Something like that.

I think somebody has a kindle version of the book available for some weird price like $5.88. Check it out of the Startpage https search engine. Go find the startpage search engine first. The link above this might help. (But look out, it looks like a state sponsored malware program/virus has been launched to discredit the anti spyware advocates who created the startpage search engine).
