Can FRACKING Cause Earthquakes? (plus Ron Paul's scary pick & FBI "informants"))

Can FRACKING cause earthquakes? It looks like "YES". Fracking and other "destroying our environment" news:

United States, Mineral: A sign on the door lets visitors know that City Hall, which shares a building with the local DMV office, was closed after the building was damged by yesterday's 5.8 earthquake August 24, 2011 in Mineral, Virginia.

Fracking – Natural Gas Affects Water Quality

“In other words, the drilling and fracking endanger the groundwater and deplete rivers and lakes all for a quick payoff to the industry and the province, after which the taxpayer is left with the clean up.”

Media ignoring fracking incidents in their reporting

Fracking could have caused East Coast earthquake

COMMENT FROM THIS ARTICLE by frck August 25, 2011, 01:24

My 1st thought for the cause was fracking...

I live in the epicenter of Earthquake country, and I can assure you that quakes can stretch beyond 160 miles. You people have no idea what you're talking about. Anyway, The Marina, SOMA, & Market districts in SF were built on landfill, which saw the greatest destruction and amplification due to soil liquefaction.

Liquefaction could easily occur from injecting fluids back into the ground, and it is well-documented that Fracking has caused multiple earthquakes.

"The Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission placed a moratorium on fracking wastewater wells, as geologists investigated a possible link between fracking activity and the outbreak of more than 1,200 earthquakes that measured lower than 4.7 in magnitude."

"Scott Ausbrooks of the Arkansas Geological Survey said a network of cracks and joints in underground rock formations allowed the fracking fluids to reach the fault and cause earthquakes. The earthquakes began rumbling through the countryside after the injections began, and after the operations stopped, the number of earthquakes dropped by two-thirds."

The media here (U.S.) won't even explore the possibility of fracking as the cause, because they're funded by the Petrol corporations. Oil and Nat. Gas companies run non-stop ads on our "news" channels; thus, their word is tainted with oil

Marcellus Shale drilling to blame for Virginia earthquake? No fracking way, industry officials say

Human Activity Is Officially Acknowledged to Cause Earthquakes, Injection Wells Can Induce Earthquakes, "Fracking" Can Cause Earthquakes, Websites Ask Whether Fracking Caused the Virgina Quake:

It's Official: Human Activity Can Cause Earthquakes

Questionable pick by Ron Paul:

Ron Paul picks "dirty" connected insider to be his senior advisor; right from Ron Paul's page:

Now take a look at this about Bruce Fein, and there will be more here about this in later updates:

Bruce Fein & Turkey

Fein connection to Turkey / Edmonds:

Summary of FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds’ August 8, 2009 deposition under oath

BDBB commenter plunger writes:

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds testifies under oath in a deposition for the Schmidt v. Krikorian case. David Krikorian, a 2010 Democratic candidate for US Representative of Ohio, had been sued by Jean Schmidt (R-OH) in response to his claim that she had accepted “blood money” from the Turkish lobby in exchange for opposing an Armenian genocide resolution. As part of his defense against Schmidt’s charge that he had libeled her, Krikorian subpoenaed Edmonds’s testimony, as she had previously spoken and written about corruption of members of Congress by the Turkish Lobby. In two unrelated lawsuits prior to this one, Edmonds had been blocked from testifying by former Attorney General John Ashcroft, under the State Secrets Act. In Schmidt v. Krikorian, however, the Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder does not reinvoke the claim of “state secrets” or otherwise move to block the testimony, and does not dispatch legal counsel to raise objections during the deposition. At the deposition, Krikorian is represented by Dan Marino of Mark Geragos’ law firm, Schmidt is represented by Bruce Fein

He is an AEI guy - clearly Fein's belief in the constitution does not carry over to a free press:

"The CDI's Ledeen, Amitay and Sobhani were featured speakers at a May 2003 forum on "the future of Iran' sponsored by AEI, the Hudson Institute and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. The forum, chaired by the Hudson Institute's Meyrav Wurmser, the Israeli-born wife of David Wurmser (he serves as Cheney's leading expert on Iran and Syria), included a presentation by Un Lubrani of Israel's Ministry of Defense.

Summarizing the sentiment of neoconservative ideologues and strategists, Meyrav Wurmser said: "Our fight against Iraq was only a battle in a long war. It would be ill-conceived to think we can deal with Iraq alone. We must move on, and faster."

JINSA, a neoconservative organization established in 1976 that fosters closer strategic and military ties between the United States and Israel, also has its sights on Iran. At a JINSA policy forum in April 2003 titled "Time to Focus on Iran-The Mother of Modern Terrorism," Ledeen declared, "The time for diplomacy is at an end; it is time for a free Iran, free Syria and free Lebanon."

JINSA, along with CSP, serves as one of the main institutional links to the military-industrial complex for neoconservatives. Ledeen served as JINSA's first executive director and was JINSA's "Godfather,"according to Amitay. Amitay is a JINSA vice chair. JINSA board members or advisers also include former CIA director James Woolsey, former Rep. Jack Kemp and the AEI's Joshua Muravchik. After he joined the administration, Feith resigned from JINSA.'s board of advisers, as did Vice President Dick Cheney and Undersecretary of State for Arms Control John Bolton."

Is Iran Next? The Pentagon neocons who brought you the war in Iraq have a new target

Zionist Influence On The US War Machine

The AEI considers itself to be the American-Jewish political presence in the world. World domination is their goal. The Neoconservative dream world is a Jewish World.

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) is fundamentally made up of mostly scholars, corporate executives and politicians with Neoconservative leanings to the right. It is more or less a central “think tank” of Zionism. They over-see and make decisions regarding trade, economics, social welfare, government tax, spending, US policies on foreign affairs and all US defense policies related to Israel and the
entire Middle East.

The AEI is considered by the US government to be America’s foreign policy "experts."

The Neocon Zionist AEI

AEI representatives testify repeatedly before congressional committees and provide consultation to all branches of the US government.

The AEI Influence over the Media

AEI’s huge status in the national media is unmatched by any other US Government policy institute. The AEI is quoted and cited often and reprinted in the national media more than any other political think tank in this country. Because of this, AEI basically controls what Americans see and read and thus what they believe.

AEI is the main think thank responsible for this “politically correct” rhetoric we are constantly being exposed to in the media. AEI controls and regulates the media. They, alone and also through other institutions, disseminate huge amounts of political propaganda via literature and all other forms of media. AEI publishes hundreds of books, articles and reports alone yearly. They are also well known for their political propaganda magazine, The American Enterprise. AEI publications are dispersed extensively to all government officials and legislators, journalists, business executives, corporations and academia. AEI has political conferences, seminars, and lectures world-wide that are regularly covered by American national television.

Sibel knows the deal...

GOP Rep Jean Schmidt Found Guilty of Accepting $500,000 in ‘Indirect’ Turkish Lobby Payment:

The Revered Bruce Fein & Foreign Lobby Dollars in the Form of Illegal Payment of Legal Bills

The report above casually, and very quickly, glosses over one of the implicated, that is, directly implicated, parties in this case: Schmidt’s lawyer- the lawyer who supposedly, and intentionally, misled his client, and did so with a dollar amount not in the thousands, but actually half a million dollars. Ordinarily this slip by a government garbage disposal facility like the Times would not raise big flags. However, this lawyer is no ordinary lawyer. The lawyer in question here happens to be a famous, very public, high-profile and very deviously and shrewdly marketed man. The lawyer in this case is none other than deceivingly perceived Bruce Fein. A man who has gotten very wealthy thanks to the foreign lobby, in this case the Turkish lobby in need of a man who knows the maze that gets the cheese to the congressional mice:

In 2007, Ayasli transferred $30 million in stock to fund a new endeavor, the nonprofit Turkish Coalition of America. The organization is headquartered in a Washington suite that has also been listed as the address for the Turkish Coalition USA PAC, the lobbying firm of Lydia Borland (who has represented the Turkish government), and the law firm of Bruce Fein and Associates (Fein comprises half of the Turkish American Legal Defense Fund).

In addition to the advocacy done through the ATC (which also funds trips to Turkey for congressional staff), a handful of its members–Citigroup, BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman, Chevron, Textron, United Technologies, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, which spent a combined $80 million lobbying Washington last year lobbied Congress directly on the genocide resolution and other issues important to Turkey; the Aerospace Industries Association, a trade group, helped coordinate the effort.

Paul is doing a deal with the devil - assuming this solves his media blackout issue - since Fein is in on that game. Paul doesn't realize he's just retained one of the insiders who is in on the blackout.

How is a closed and monopolized media constitutional?

Hitting Fein where he has literally no defense will focus on media control, and how extra-constitutional the Zionist control of us media has become.

And let's not forget this is the SAME JEAN SCHMIDT who stole her election in the famous "moisture" election:

The Veteran Of Fallujah Defeated By OH's Humidity

More on Bruce Fein:

Bruce Fein has maintained close ties to those involved in the last impeachment. Fein now serves as one of the “principals” of the American Freedom Agenda. Its other leaders include 2008 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr, Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead, and direct New Right pioneer Richard Viguerie.Barr served as one of the House managers during Bill Clinton’s impeachment.Perhaps the past is prologue.

Lawyer Drafts Articles of Impeachment Over Libya


"He needs to be impeached for several constitutional reasons which Bruce Fein has perfectly laid out."

take a look who is financing the push to impeach Obama...

In 2006, Whitehead was one of the most notable Republican donors to the campaign of Joseph Lieberman in his independent re-election campaign for the U.S. Senate

John C. Whitehead


Whitehead graduated from Haverford College in 1943 and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, where he commanded one of the LCVP landing crafts at Omaha Beach, in the D-Day landing invasion of Normandy.[3][4]

In 1947 he received an MBA degree from Harvard Business School[2] and subsequently joined the prestigious New York investment bank of Goldman Sachs. He rose to become chairman over a total period at the firm of 38 years, and he retired in 1984 as Co-Chairman and Co-Senior Partner.

He served as United States Deputy Secretary of State in Ronald Reagan's administration from 1985 to 1989 under George Shultz, and was awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal by President Reagan. In 1996, he was the campaign chairman for Michael Benjamin who ran for a seat in New York's 8th congressional district.

He is former Chairman of the Board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the United Nations Association, and a former Chairman of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Harvard Board of Overseers. He is a former director of the New York Stock Exchange and Chairman Emeritus of The Brookings Institution.

He has a long association with the Rockefeller family, having held positions at various times with family-created institutions such as Rockefeller University, the Asia Society (where he is Chairman Emeritus and Honorary Life Trustee), the Lincoln Center Theater and the WTC Memorial Foundation. In these organizations, and previously when he was for a time on the family's powerful Trust Committee, overseeing the family fortune and investments of the Rockefeller Group[citation
needed], the real estate firm that previously owned and managed Rockefeller Center, he became closely associated with David Rockefeller...

why would Rockefeller want President Obama impeached?

I really don't know why Rockefeller would want Obama impeached. Perhaps as Obama is campaigning for a second run at ruining our country, it is possible that he hasn't nullified the sovereignty of our country to the U.N. as quickly as the
controllers would have liked. Although, he does have a great start at this.

Bruce Fein, below, has drafted articles of impeachment and will bring them before Congress if Obama declares war on Libya. I would not ever want to be on the wrong side of Bruce Fein.

THE INFORMANTS: The FBI has built a massive network of spies to prevent another domestic attack. But are they busting terrorist plots—or leading them?

"Terrorists for the FBI:" How the FBI Uses Informants to Surveil and Entrap Americans

The FBI has built a massive network of spies to prevent another domestic terrorist attack. But are they busting plots—or leading them? That’s the question addressed by a year-long investigation in Mother Jones magazine. It suggests FBI informants are not only busting terrorist plots, they are actually leading them so the FBI can later claim victories in the so-called "war on terror." In collaboration with the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California, Berkeley, reporter Trevor Aaronson examined more than 500 terrorism-related cases and found that nearly half the prosecutions involved the use of informants, many of them incentivized by cash rewards up to $100,000 per assignment. We speak with Aaronson and are also joined by James Wedick, a retired FBI agent who worked for the Bureau for 35 years, and Gadeir Abbas, staff attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"COINTELPRO" was the FBI's secret program to undermine the popular upsurge which swept the country during the 1960s. Though the name stands for "Counterintelligence Program," the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate "radical" political opposition inside the US. When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally- protected political activity. Its methods ranged far beyond surveillance, and amounted to a domestic version of the covert action for which the CIA has become infamous throughout the world.

With CIA Help, New York Police Secretly Monitored Mosques, Muslim Communities Post-9/11

A new investigation by the Associated Press reveals how, after the attacks of September 11, 2001, the New York City Police Department decided it could no longer trust other agencies to prevent terrorism and started expanding its own intelligence gathering. In the process, it became "one of the nation’s most aggressive domestic intelligence agencies," targeting ethnic communities in ways that would run afoul of civil liberties rules if practiced by the federal government. The report, titled "With CIA Help, NYPD Moves Covertly in Muslim Areas," also finds that these operations "benefited from unprecedented help from the CIA, a partnership that has blurred the line between foreign and domestic spying." The report details how police used informants, known as "mosque crawlers," to monitor sermons, even without any evidence of wrongdoing. Also falling under NYPD’s scrutiny were imams, taxi cab drivers and food cart vendors — jobs often done by Muslims. We speak with Matt Apuzzo, co-author of the Associated Press investigative report, and get response from Gadeir Abbas, staff attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

CIA Using The NYPD For Domestic Spying And False Flag Terrorism Patsy Programs

Just to let you know, I was right again about something - BATH SALTS. I said there is "NO ACTUAL PROOF" in all these bath salts stories that the people were actually "high on bath salts", and in this newswatch 16 report, they report that THERE IS NO TEST TO TEST PEOPLE FOR BATH SALTS (and many people argued with me about this btw...):

I also wrote (cut/paste from a previous post):

Another "BATH SALTS" story in the "news", the usual usual: no proof they were on bath salts...besides them just saying it, and references to the two sensational priest stabbing and wall stabbing stories:

• James E. Piacente of Shickshinny and Theodore Glowacki of Nanticoke were charged with public intoxication after police responded to a call of two suspicious men on Livingston Lane Friday afternoon. Police said the two men admitted ingesting bath salts and were taken into custody and held at police headquarters until they were sober. -> on the internet you can't see what's in the paper, but it references the priest stabber and the people who stabbed their walls...just like I keep saying. Keep the two sensational stories referenced in any bath salts story, both of which provide no proof the people were on bath salts...except just "saying" they were on bath salts. My point is: since when is it PROOF of something, when someone just merely "says it"? That's my point! Maybe these two guys "said" they were on bath salts...and maybe they didn't even "say" that! Did you ever think about that? Beyond even PROVING they were on bath salts, how do we even know for sure they SAID they were on bath salts? It's all taking peoples' word for it with no actual proof, which is my point.

Do you think it's reasonable not to believe something, if someone just "says it"? I think that's reasonable. I think it's NUTS to believe something just because someone said it verbally or in print.

I'm high on bath salts right now! I must be...because I said it. I think they're trying to link crimes with being high on bath salts, that's why they keep repeating the two sensational stabbing stories every time there's a story about bath salts.

And I'm cut/pasting this from the last post, because I'm right about 9/11, too:

Not TV guys & politicians, REAL EXPERTS - scientists, architects, engineers, firemen, professors............

If this doesn't change your mind in 15 minutes about believing the official 9/11 story, nothing will. Watch this 15 minute video from Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. If you still believe the official 9/11 story, then you believe TV guys & politicians and you DON'T believe FACTS, SCIENCE, & EXPERTS. I love when architect Richard Gage says in the video, "LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS" before he shows an array of REAL EXPERTS (not TV guys & politicians) scientifically proving the official government/media story of 9/11 is not possible:

If you won't watch that 15 minute video above, will your short attention span allow you to watch this 4 (FOUR) minute version?

Above video & message from AE911Truth: This is AE911Truth's new 9/11 documentary on the mysterious destruction of World Trade Center Building #7 on 9/11/01. Join actor, Ed Asner, and architect, Richard Gage, AIA, as they narrate an unfolding story that decimates the official account ("collapse due to normal office fires") of this 47 story high-rise which was destroyed on the afternoon of 9/11 in record time: top to bottom in under 7 seconds - and at free-fall acceleration for a third of its fall.

This is AE911Truth's best shot at a professionally produced 15 minute informative and engaging WTC 7 documentary - designed for newcomers. It is free. Please spread far and wide.

The documentary includes several of the dozens of technical and building experts that were interviewed and that appear in our forthcoming full length documentary - 9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out. Altogether of course there are more than 1,500 Architects & Engineers that have signed the AE911Truth petition calling for a new investigation of the destruction of all 3 high-rises at the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Special thanks to the AE911Truth volunteer video crew!

We are proud to partner with the 9/11 family members and first responders of in the 10th Anniversary Campaign to raise awareness about WTC 7 in cities across America.
