Why Are America’s Food Processing Plants Suddenly Exploding?

Is it normal for the United States to experience so many disasters in such a short period of time at major food processing facilities? Since January 1, 2022, America has seen fires, explosions, and plane crashes in plants and distribution centers.

April 21: A plane crashed into a General Mills plant in Covington, Georgia. The Federal Aviation Administration reported that an unidentified small plane crashed within a mile of the runway of the Covington Municipal Airport.

On April 13, a major food California processing plant, Taylor Farms, burned almost completely to the ground.

Also on April 13, a plane crashed into Gem State Processing in Heyburn, East Idaho at about 8:35 a.m. They processed potatoes.

April 11: New Hampshire’s East Conway Beef and Pork experienced a major plant fire.

On March 31: The Rio Fresh onion facility in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas suffered a severely damaging fire. Local media outlet KRGV reported the site employed 300 people and that “hundreds of thousands of warehouse space and structure was damaged from the fire.”

March 28: Maricopa Food Pantry, a local food bank in Arizona, lost 50,000 pounds worth of food in a fire that occurred just 15 minutes after their food bank closed. Company President Mike Connelly described the blaze as one “40-50 feet in the air, just pure black smoke,” that “engulfed the entire neighborhood.”

Also in March, at least 2500 people had to be evacuated in Salinas, California where a four-alarm fire ravaged a food processing plant. Officials feared a possible explosion and hazardous plume of ammonia. A shelter in place order was mandate for about 35,000 people near the Taylor Farms facility.

On March 22: Shearer’s Foods potato chip plant in Hermiston, Oregon was destroyed after a boiler explosion and its subsequent fire annihilated the facility. The boiler was fueled by natural gas and that the company supplied potato and corn chips throughout the western United States. Seven employees were hospitalized in the blast. The facility unemployed nearly 400 people.

March 16: A Walmart distribution center in Plainfield, Indiana where over 1,000 employees shipped food and other supplies all over the region. The fire destroyed the massive 1 million square foot operation.

March 16: A Nestle facility in Jonesboro, Arkansas caught fire on March 16 remained shut down for weeks. The Jonesboro Fire Department said it found a fire inside a “large piece of a production line cooler” at the plant.

The number of food processing plants experiencing such disasters appears to be high, but In the U.S. there were approximately 1,410 warehouse (not just food processing) fires per year between 2014 and 2019. According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), these fires caused an annual average of two civilian deaths, 20 civilian injuries, and $159 million in direct property damage.

NFPA indicated there was an average of 22,900 fires per year in storage occupancies for the period 1994-1998. “The leading cause of these fires was intentional fire-setting (arson). Other top fire causes include open flame, embers, or torches, which includes hot work activities such as welding and cutting; electrical distribution equipment such as fixed wiring, transformers, and circuit breakers; other equipment such as fuel-powered and electric-powered equipment.”

“Chemical reactions between incompatible chemicals have also been known to ignite warehouse fires. These top fire causes in warehouse environments consistently remain near the top of the list year after year.”

What Really Happened at the 2017 Mandalay Bay Shooting in Las Vegas?

Who was Rich Higgins and why should we pay attention to his name?

What the government and media handlers deem “conspiracy” is now being exposed as far from being “theory” regarding the October 1, 2017 massive shootings near the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

🔹George Soros’ Soros Fund Management “shorted,” or bet against the stock price of Mandalay Bay’s MGM shortly prior to the shooting. MGM owns the Mandalay Bay shooting site.

🔹MGM Grand CEO James Murren quietly dumped a lot of his personal MGM stock prior to the shooting.

🔹At the time of the shooting, the top five floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel housed the Four Seasons Las Vegas.

🔹Bill Gates (through Cascade Investment) and Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal owned the Four Seasons Las Vegas.

🔹Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal was arrested by the Saudis for corruption a month after the shooting on November 4.

🔹There was a prior shooting at an airport involving the likely assassination attempt on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

🔹Bin Salman was likely staying (not totally confirmed yet) at the Mandalay Bay hotel and was forced to flee the premises in disguise. 

Rich Higgins, who served in the National Security Council strategic planning office in 2017, was fired for being too pro-Trump by Deep State members within government.

As so many other patriots, Higgins was quickly labeled as a “conspiracy theorist” by Deep State connected news agencies. We now know he has been fully vindicated. 

Higgins

In at least a 50-page report prepared for Higgins soon after he left NSC, evidence shows shocking information about the mass shooting.

Entitled “All Source Assessment: Attack on the Route 91 Country Music Festival October 1, 2017 Mandalay Bay Hotel Las Vegas, Nevada,” the report offers these astonishing clues to what actually occurred:

🔹The alleged shooter, Stephen Paddock, did not commit suicide as reported by officials and corporate media.

🔹He was executed, likely by ISIS and ANTIFA operatives. The FBI knew this would occur beforehand.

Paddock

🔹The ANTIFA group claimed responsibility for the shooting including the notice: “One of our comrades from our Las Vegas branch has made these fascist Trump supporting dogs pay.”

What happened to Higgins?

His friend, Mike Daugherty, announced on Facebook: “Rest In Peace Rich Higgins. You are a hero. He passed this morning at 3 am. (February 22, 2022) This guy was all guts for no glory. He was amazing… Had so much surgery. Fought to survive in ICU for months on end…Crushing loss of an unsung hero that history will elevate. He told them all way early about the inside knives in the White House….so the insider mob fired him. What a tragic loss. Pray for his wife and small kids.”

Quotes from the report:

🔹“Stephen Paddock may have anticipated the arrival of a fly in team of additional shooters that would assist in the operational execution.”

🔹An Australian man, Brian A. Hodge is a “person of interest” with “possible ties to Islamic organizations and a possible Islamic State (IS) linkage.”

Hodge California drivers license

🔹“Mr. Hodges’ personal profile is more befitting of a left wing or Anti-Fascist Action (ANTIFA) affiliate, but recent intelligence reports point to an increased level of collaboration between groups like Antifa and Islamic State.”

🔹“The FBI was closely monitoring Antifa operative engagements with Islamic State and Al Qaeda (Arabian Peninsula and Islamic Maghreb) personnel in Germany…the FBI has discovered a “level of chatter” between left wing revolutionary groups and Islamic terrorist groups.”

🔹“The report fuses open source information with tactical counter terrorism analysis, cyber intelligence, and digital data mining capabilities.”

🔹“Mr. Hodge traveled to Berlin, Paris, London, and back to Berlin approximately 2 weeks prior to the attack in Las Vegas.”

🔹“Further data mining of Mr. Hodge’s activity on the night of the attack reveals that while he was originally located at the Mandalay Bay and the surrounding Enterprise area, (he) departed downtown Las Vegas while publicly claiming to have been hiding in the bushes outside the Mandalay Bay. Mr. Hodge’s signatures reveal that he is located approximately 10 miles north of the Mandalay Bay hotel…”

🔹“How did Mr. Hodge know, only 3 hours after the attack, in advance of the public and most officials, that a security guard had been killed (actually shot and wounded) on the 32nd floor?”

Security cameras showed 32nd floor hallway

🔹“Intelligence methods reveal that during the frenzy Hodge stayed at Knotty Pine Motel in north Las Vegas in Room Number 17, a room that was associated with a man named German Torres Moreno, a Mexican national from the city of Penjamo, Mexico, in Guanajuato, Mexico, an area that is rife with ISIS recruiting.”

🔹The report indicates that ISIS claimed some responsibility for the shooting operation and referred to Stephen Paddock as one of their operatives.

🔹Paddock was living at the Mandalay Bay with a woman from Australia named Marilou Danley.

🔹Danley was in the Philipines when the shooting occurred.

🔹Intelligence showed at least one ISIS communication network indicated Paddock had converted to Islam and ISIS granted him the Muslim name Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki, as Newsweek reported.

🔹Al-Naba, the ISIS magazine reported “A soldier of the caliphate attacked a gathering of 22,000 Americans at a concert in the city of Las Vegas, resulting in nearly 60 killed and 600 injured…Brother Abu Abdul Barr stationed himself in a room on the 32nd floor of a hotel overlooking the concert and opened fire continuously on the crowds using 23 firearms and more than 2,000 bullets and died, may God accept him, after running out of ammunition.”

From Higgins report.
FBI and Vegas Police quickly leaked select videos to New York Times in efforts to support their lone man gunner theory.
Paddock at Mandalay Bay

According to the Higgins Report: “Immediately following the attack, during the morning of October 2, Mr. Hodge appears in numerous Australian media reports including print, radio and television. Notably, he does not share the links to these radio and television interviews on any of his own social media outlets. This is highly suspicious behavior. Later in the day on October 2, Mr. Hodge departed Las Vegas and arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While in New Mexico, Mr. Hodge appears to travel to the Anatolia Doner Kebab House…This restaurant address is affiliated with numerous other businesses in the Albuquerque area and is owned by a Mr. Mehmet Kokangul and Umit Kokangul. Mr. Mehmet Kokangul appears to be a Turkish National from Adana Turkey, a known center of Islamic State activity in Turkey.”

Twice the Hero, This Olympic Swimmer Saved Many Lives

In 1976, Shavarsh Karapetyan, an Armenian Olympic swimmer who earned eight gold medals and broke several world records at European championships for finswimming, had just completed a 12-mile run with his brother Kamo when they saw a trolley bus crash into a dam reservoir. The trolley bus sank 80 feet offshore at a depth of 33 feet.

It was September 16, 1976 when Karapetyan risked his own life to save over three dozen people from drowning in the reservoir Yerevan, the capital of Armenia.

Despite zero visibility, he managed to kick in the back window, injuring himself in the process. He proceeded to save 37 people trapped in the bus, one at a time, for hours.

Using the routine he had developed from his swimming training, Karapetyan fell into a rhythm. He took five breaths, dove down for two passengers, and kicked against the top of the bus for momentum as he returned to the surface with the people in both arms.

He had instructed Kamo to stay at the surface and ferry passengers to the bank of the reservoir, as he dove again and again. Karapetyan’s own legs were bleeding, sliced open by broken glass, but that did not deter him.

The two-man lifesaving effort lasted about 20 minutes, before a rescue crew arrived, some of whom moved in on kayaks.

Because of the flurry of action and lack of clear government records, it’s unknown how many people the Karapetyan brothers saved; they estimate about 30. Some survivors freed themselves. Forty-six people died.

Karapetyan after rescuing about 37 people, is shirtless at the bottom center.

The combined effect of the cold water and his inquiries from breaking the glass window led to his hospitalization for 45 days after the incident, during which time he developed pneumonia, sepsis, and lung damage which ended his athletic career.

For years, his story wasn’t known, until an article about the event identified him by name in 1982. In 1985, he happened to pass by the Sports and Concert Arena when he witnessed a fire break out and rushed inside, again saving people trapped inside one at a time until he collapsed. He was again hospitalized with severe burns and lung damage.

He retired at the age of 24, having set 11 world records. Karapetyan held 17 world championship titles, 13 European championship titles, and seven Soviet championship titles.

He was born in 1953. As of 2022, Karapetyan says that he wouldn’t change a thing. Diving into Yerevan Lake that day cost him his athletic career. But he would do it again.

“There was no other choice,” he said. “I knew that it wouldn’t be right if the world’s fastest underwater swimmer was there and didn’t even try to help. Nature and humanity would have judged me. God probably would have judged me.”

Amusement Park and Thrill Rides Gone Wrong

In September 2021, the High Roller on the Las Vegas Strip suddenly stopped working, stranding about 150 people on the attraction for 90 minutes.

“The High Roller Observation Wheel was stopped during its rotation on Friday night, due to a network connectivity issue involving one of the cabins,” Caesars said in a statement. “Approximately 150 passengers were aboard the wheel at the time. Engineers resolved the network issue within approximately 90 minutes, the wheel’s rotation resumed, and all passengers safely disembarked and received refunds.”

The High Roller raises riders 550 feet in the air and is the largest observation wheel in North America. The wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one revolution and features 28 cabins. 

Although terrified, there were no reported injuries. Las Vegas injuries from amusement type rides exceed 90 per year, but the national numbers are staggering.

In an average year over 9,000 people are injured on amusement park rides in the United States. Theses are statistics from the Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

This data represents only injuries serious enough to require treatment in an emergency room. The total number of injuries that occur are even more.

CPSC reported that in 2017, emergency rooms saw 43,405 injuries associated with amusement attractions and rides, for both mobile, like traveling carnivals, and fixed-site parks, such as Six Flags, Sea World or Disneyland.

When the injuries from inflatable amusement park rides are included, the number of injuries increases by over 3,800. When both moon bounces and inflatable slide injuries are added, it increases by 3,300 and still doesn’t include the number of people injured on public water slides.

Kids often crowd into bounce houses, and jumping up and down can send other children flying into the air too.

The latest numbers indicate about 30 U.S. children a day are treated in emergency rooms for broken bones, sprains, cuts and concussions from bounce house accidents. Most involve children falling inside or out of the inflated playthings, and many children get hurt when they collide with other bouncing kids.

Wind blows inflatable off the ground.

Half of all people hurt on amusement park rides are children. Over 16 percent of reported injuries occur to children between the ages of 10 and 14. Children account for three-quarters of accidents involving a rider falling or being ejected from a ride during its operation.

During a span of three years over 50 people were killed riding amusement park rides. These deaths most often occurred on roller coasters. The second most deaths occurred on whirling rides.

Types of Injuries Experienced

Bumper car rides and others that move people around at a high rate of speed cause many accidents.

Roller coasters also cause many accidents. People often experience a stroke from trauma that occurs to ligaments in their neck. Traumatic brain injuries can happen from high levels of stress put on the brain by excessive speed. Detached objects hitting a person’s head also causes injury.

People experience varies types of cuts, torn ligaments as well as broken bones. Some individuals drown on waters slides and a number of other water rides.

The Cause of Accidents

Many accidents are determined to have resulted from mechanical failures caused by improper maintenance and more.

Rides are sometimes operated incorrectly.

In some cases, a passenger does not follow safety instructions. Accidents happen when a rider stands up at the wrong time, removes safety restraints too soon and more. Some accidents occur because a ride is designed to create a thrill by spinning fast or traveling at excessive speeds.

Hillary’s ‘What Difference Does It Make?’ Revisited

Bill Clinton’s most renown statement is history is clearly “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

What was Hillary Clinton’s?

“Despite valid ceasefire opportunities to prevent ‘bloodshed in Benghazi’ at the onset of hostilities, Secretary (Hillary) Clinton intervened and quickly pushed her foreign policy in support of a revolution led by the Muslim Brotherhood and known terrorists in the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group,” wrote Charles R. Kuble in 2016.

After the September 11, 2012 Benghazi disaster, in May 2013, Hillary Clinton, testifying to the House Oversight Committee, barked her notorious response.

Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

“…Clinton’s war actually did make a difference,” Kuble continued for American Thinker. “It led to a very real and very tragic humanitarian disaster. Her bad judgment and failed policy resulted in the arming of terrorists, months of war and tens of thousands of causalities, the murder of the American ambassador and the deaths of three other brave Americans, continued civil war and the collapse of the Libyan economy, and a failed nation-state contributing to a tragic European migrant crisis.”

The Incredible True Story of the ‘Miracle Girl’

Believing in miracles, coincidences, and serendipity can be a stunning endeavor. Many people consider them a lucky break, a fluke, or happenstance. But it only takes a second, an eighth of an inch, or some other instance to stumble upon a blessing or make a difference in life.

Linda Morgan

At any given moment, at any location, by any given person, lives can be moved and shaped by our decisions, actions, or circumstances.  

Job 9:10
“He does great things too marvelous to understand. He performs countless miracles.”

It’s been 65 years ago this month. ABC Radio Network’s Peabody Award winner, Edward P. Morgan maintained his professional composure while broadcasting the most challenging newscast of his life. Based in New York City, Morgan reported the collision of two ocean liners in the Atlantic Ocean off the Massachusetts coast.

Edward P. Morgan

Later, Morgan would become known as an anchor with Howard K. Smith on ABC television covering the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a press panelist between the campaign debates of Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon, and a hands on reporter at presidential nominating conventions. But on the night of July 25, 1956 as he announced the details of the disaster at sea, his listeners had no knowledge that his 14-year-old daughter was on one of the vessels.

During the broadcast, Morgan was handed a list of 52 dead passengers from the crashing of the S.S. Stockholm into the luxury liner S.S. Andrea Doria.

As the ships separated and the Andrea Doria started to sink, rescue and first aid efforts began almost immediately. Passengers were escorted to lifeboats while six vessels in the area closed in.

Morgan had announced that among those survivors were Hollywood actresses Ruth Roman and Betsy Drake (wife of Cary Grant).  Also on board were Philadelphia mayor Richard Dilworth and a man named Mike Stoller, who later wrote many Elvis Presley hits such as “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Treat Me Nice.”

Mike Stoller and Elvis Presley

This was the last night at sea of their Trans-Atlantic trip from Naples, Italy to New York.

“It was a very foggy night and the fog horns had been sounding regularly for hours,” Anna Maria Conti, who was traveling with her mother Lucia, explained. “The ship was due to dock at 9:00 a.m. the next morning… we proceeded to the ballroom and listened to the band for a while before retiring for the night.”

“About an hour later, we were startled from our sleep by people screaming and yelling outside our cabin and opened the door to see what was going on. People were scrambling around trying to find other family members in other cabins. Someone shouted that we were sinking, others thought there was a fire.”

S.S. Andrea Doria

“Many of the passengers were barefooted, in their nightclothes, and panic stricken. My mother and I decided to get dressed quickly, put on our life jackets and report to our muster station as we had practiced on our second day out to sea. Our muster station was located in the main ballroom of the cabin class section of the ship.”

“We had difficulty getting dressed as we were staggering and trying to stand upright and assumed it was the rough ocean. When we left our cabin, we noticed the floor was no longer level and we could not close the door. I know now the ship was listing. It was difficult to walk and stand upright while trying to get to our muster station. We had to hold on to the railings in the corridors to move. There was panic, confusion and chaos. There were no announcements on the intercom.”

Andrea Doria listing

The Contis eventually reached the main ballroom where they found many passengers assembled.

They waited for “instructions or information on the intercom but it was silent. The only sounds we heard were those of distant screams, broken glass and furniture sliding across the room as the ship continued to list. We still did not know what was happening. Tables, chairs, and musical instruments slid across the room while we waited and prayed. Two nuns that were in the room with us left. A priest came in and gave general absolution to everyone and also left. Where were they going? For sure we thought this was the end.”

“Thinking we had nothing to lose, we decided to go up the stairs and on deck. Some passengers had gone before us and others after us. To reach the upper deck on the starboard side of the ship we were forced to crawl up the stairs on our hands and knees due to the severely listing ship. It was impossible to stand up. While crawling, we had to dodge sliding furniture and broken glass which was all over the floors and stairs.”

“We finally reached the upper deck and couldn’t believe what we saw. Passengers were leaving the ship. If we had not ventured up on deck from the main ballroom, we might never have known that the ship was sinking and that passengers were being evacuated.”

Thinking death was imminent, Conti cherishes the next moments, in her eyes, a miracle. Suddenly, the dense fog lifted. In the distance they could see the bright welcoming lights of the luxury liner, Ile de France, which was traveling outbound from New York.

Andrea Doria and Ile de France

When the Andrea Doria sent the SOS, the captain of the Ile de France,  Raul De Beauden, immediately ordered that the ship reverse her course.

Captain Beauden and his crew would soon be rescuing the Contis and 751 other passengers, “many half-naked,” from the doomed Andrea Doria. He kept the Ile de France a safe 500 feet away and lowered his desperately needed lifeboats for the sinking ship’s passengers.

“It seemed like a mirage in the middle of the ocean,” Conti said. “The lifeboats were evacuating the passengers of the Andrea Doria to the Ile de France with the assistance of other smaller boats. Crew members and some of the passengers helped women and children to climb up over the side of the ship to rope ladders and descend to waiting life boats. It was a long way down and many people fell into the ocean screaming. My mother urged me to go first and she would follow. As terrified as I was, I knew that at 19 I could physically climb down that rope ladder.”

“I had doubts that my 56 year old mother would follow or be able to climb down,” Conti remembered. “I couldn’t take the chance that she would not and the crew was rushing us to move quickly as time was running out. I refused to climb over until my mother did first and with the aid of others we helped her over the side of the ship. I remember yelling down to her to ‘hold tight’ reassuring her that I was right behind her. We made it to a waiting lifeboat safely. Praise the Lord!”

S.S. Stockholm postcard

But on the list of those who did not survive  were radio news broadcaster Edward P. Morgan’s daughter, Linda, along with her half-sister, 8-year-old Joan.

Linda’s  mother and stepfather had bedded down in the upper deck of Cabin 54, while she and Joan slept in Cabin 52.

While others onboard heard the crash, Linda’s family directly experienced the terror when the Stockholm smashed 30 feet into their side of the ship. At 11:11 p.m. the two ships began pulling apart as scraping sparks showered the water.  

Prior to the voyage, Andrea Doria Captain Piero Calamai sought a trip postponement due to steering and stability problems. Because it was the height of the summer travel season and the ship was completely booked, his request to place the vessel into drydock for repairs was denied.

While Andrea Doria started her 230-plus feet descent to the ocean bed, Stockholm somehow remained afloat. One of the crew members, thirty-six year old Bernabe Polanco Garcia, surveying the damages, heard a familiar language above him.

Someone was calling in Spanish among the mangled steel of the Stockholm’s bow. He walked up and toward the call to hear the words “Madre! Madre! Dónde esta Mama” (“Mother! Mother! Where is my mother?”).  On his hands and knees he crawled forward and found a young teenage girl in yellow pajamas. She looked up from the mattress she was still on. It was Linda Morgan.

Miraculously, as Stockholm’s bow crushed through the Andrea Doria, it lodged just under  Linda’s bed in such a way that it  hurled her at least 80 feet onto its own front deck. She landed just behind a 30-inch  sea breaker that spanned the full width of the ship. Below her were crew quarters in the forward section where five crew members were killed and others injured.

Captain John Shea, commander of the USNS Pvt. William H. Thomas, directed rescue operations for almost six hours. He classified the cause of so many people being saved was due to  “a miracle.” With over 30 years of experience Shea said he had never seen a rescue operation proceed so smoothly.

Captain John Shea

“It is certainly unusual to get so many survivors off a sinking ship safely,” he observed. “If this happened four months from now it would be a different story. In cold weather there would be lives lost. You could bet on it.”

“A thing like that would happen once in a lifetime,” he continued. “If the fog hadn’t lifted when it did it would have been bad, very bad.”

Ile de France at New York harbor.

Naturally, Linda’s  name was not on the register of persons rescued from Andrea Doria lifeboats. She was assumed dead or missing at sea. Upon the Stockholm’s arrival at New York, she was taken to St. Vincent Hospital with a broken arm, kneecaps, and minor injuries. Around the world, the press reported her as the “Miracle Girl.”

Stockholm arrives in New York

During his broadcast the following day, Morgan, whose credo was “to be as fair as possible but as critical as possible,” revealed he had just returned from meeting his daughter at the dock. She had survived the collision, and was indeed the “Miracle Girl.” This emotional announcement became one of the most memorable in radio news history.

“To all those, of whatever nationality, who participated in the rescue operations following the tragic collision between the Andrea Doria and the Stockholm I extend personal congratulations and admiration,” President Dwight D. Eisenhower extended his “personal congratulations and admiration” to those involved in rescue operations.

President Eisenhower


When her Spanish-speaking rescuer, Polanco, went to the hospital the next weekend to pay her a visit, administrator Sister Loretta Bernard presented him with a Miraculous Medal Of Our Lady.

Mr. Morgan, who had worked in Mexico City where Linda was born, greeted him with an enthusiastic squeeze. “Hombre, hombre,” Mr. Morgan reacted. “Man, man how can I ever thank you?”

Linda grew up graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, moved to Washington D.C and met a coworker named Phillip at the Office of Economic Opportunity. Phillip had been a captain piloting B-47 bombers in the United States Air Force and later became the executive secretary of the Peace Corps during the Kennedy administration. When he met Linda, Phillip was a special assistant to the director of the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity under President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Her mother, Jane Cianfarra painfully survived on the Andrea Doria, but on each anniversary of the July 25th disaster she would sink into depression thinking of her daughter Joan and the remembrance of seeing her husband take his last breath.. It was on a  July 25th in 1967 that she died. The following year Linda and Phillip were married and moved to San Antonio in 1970, where she became active in civic affairs. 

Linda, then and now.

“At 14, you think you live forever,” she said in 1997. “I learned otherwise earlier than most. The accident made me more cautious in the physical things, but less afraid of growing old and more adventurous in the mental things. I was pleased when we moved from Washington, where people live such public lives, to Texas, where people accept you for what you are and do.”

“I never understood the attention I got because I didn’t do anything, I just survived,” she continued. “I was once given a life-saving award, but I didn’t save any lives. I just survived. I couldn’t take credit for anything.”

“My husband’s a pilot,” Linda was quoted in the book “Saved!” by William Hoffer. “We fly all over. We hike and canoe and climb. I feel life is to be lived to the fullest. Life is precious. There’s a very thin line between when you’re living and when you’re not.”

Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum

Linda earned a master’s degree in Library Science from Our Lady of the Lake University, San Antonio, and master’s degree in Art History from the University of Texas, Austin. She worked for seven years at the San Antonio Art Museum and later became the chief curator of the highly respected Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum.

She was the founding curator of the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts and has authored books on the history of stage design in Europe, Russia and the United States. She’s been a member of the Historic Review Board and the San Antonio Conservation Society. Recently a permanent endowment fund in her name was formally announced to provide support to grow community gardens, harvest stations, water catchment systems and training opportunities throughout the city.

 As for husband Phillip, he became Chief Justice of the 4th Court of Appeals and a future respected mayor of San Antonio–the Honorable Phil Hardberger.

Linda and Phil Hardberger

In 1977, he piloted a single-engine plane to re-create Charles Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic on the event’s 50th anniversary. In 2007, Hardberger was honored by the Federal Aviation Administration with the Wright Brothers “Master Pilot” Award for 50 years of piloting planes safely.

The most popular mayor in San Antonio history (approval rating of 86%), he expanded the River Walk, brought integrity back to city leadership and led the acquisitions of more parks.

A signature Voelcker dairy farm and homestead was acquired in 2007 and turned into a park. In recognition, the City Council in late 2009 named it Phil Hardberger Park.

Lin Wood Whistleblower Interview: Danger in Supreme Court

Each day, we learn new revelations in politics that startle, anger, and depress us.

What you are about to read caused such emotions when I first examined this information. The contents of these  interviews, conducted from January 9 through March 1, 2021, literally gave me nauseous shivers.

“This is an interview with Ryan
Dark White,” the Interviewer announced so the transcriptionist, Kimberly H. Nolan, could hear properly. “This is an interview for Attorney Lin Wood. This is Saturday, January 9th, 2021.”

“And, Ryan, if you could just give us a brief background…about yourself, where you grew up, where you went to school, just so we know a little bit more about you.”

Wait. Before you read any further, please be forewarned the information from these interviews will challenge you. I’m a natural skeptic when investigating anything. A few times in life, especially as a private investigator, I thought someone was likely providing false information or conspiracy theory nonsense—but later learned it was true.

You will likely sense there is a tone of conspiracy here because it may overwhelm your mind. I couldn’t believe what was happening in swing state cities in the early morning hours after 2020 Election Day as it occurred. It was especially hard to conceive why the Supreme Court and lower courts continued to reject lawsuits from Wood, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Rudy Giuliani and others.

After reading this Whistleblower article, it will make much sense…but the reasons are not pretty.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (New International Version)

13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

Part 1: Danger in the Supreme Court

“Ryan D. White,” was the older man’s answer. “It’s not my birth name. It’s not the name I prefer. Originally from
Maryland, I hold graduate degrees — I held graduate degrees…in physics, mathematics, biology and chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania and Green College, Oxford. Graduate school would be University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland, University of Maryland’s physics program.”

Ryan D. White

By 2005, he began working with law enforcement and intelligence gathering…”in 2008 I started working directly with Rod Rosenstein in Baltimore.”

“Because of the undercover nature of many of the investigations I worked on, terrorists or domestic terrorism within the country, they kept me fairly well concealed, and access was limited to a certain group headed by Rod Rosenstein.”

Rosenstein


“It became known as the ‘Dirty Trick Squad’ in Baltimore. This is where they were using Hammer, Sunrise, Sunset, things like that to illegally spy on people, corrupt–well, attempted to corrupt judges, compromise them — Hillary Clinton, others.”

“I mean, it was just ongoing. They concentrated on judges, but they wanted to concentrate on (inaudible).
This was done under the guise of a CISSP operation.”


“It’s a DOJC SIMS computer operation. It was run out of Fort Washington but had a satellite location in Baltimore.”


“And they would illegally compromise people, illegally wiretap, break into computers, plant, reverse, change information, change emails, things of that nature, and it was in this capacity of working with them that information about the judges, Roberts and Pence and things like that have
come out.”

“I’ve tried several times in the past to get it out and was thoroughly squashed by Rod and the DOJ and the FBI to a horrible extent.”

“In 2016, I made a video discussing quite a bit of  this in an effort to get it to Devin Nunes, who was head of the House intelligence committee at the time, but there was interference from one of the people involved and he messed that all up, so it went largely unnoticed.”


“But in the video I tried to warn President Trump about the people he was dealing with daily, and especially
Rod, and things like that as they were working together to remove them, trying to compromise the people around them, when they possibly could.”

The Interviewer asked how Rosenstein and Mike Pence were connected.

“That group, I mean, they’re all interconnected one way or another.· That particular group was Rod, VP Pence, Paul Ryan. That was the core of that group.”

Rod was in there, but that was the core of it. It was an attempt, where Rod was the brilliant legal mind behind it, to remove President Trump under the 25th Amendment.”

“The (inaudible) had an operational name for it in the beginning, ‘Run Silent, Run Deep,‘ but nobody really used it after a while, and it didn’t make any sense because it was such a small group. But that’s an old movie about somebody being passed over for a promotion, which they both felt they were.”


“Now, VP Pence hated President Trump because he had taken his slot as rightful president — he felt that he did — and Paul Ryan was actually — considered running as well for the vice presidential slot, and Mitt Romney was also involved. But they don’t — they thought President Trump was an outsider who has not paid his dues; they just didn’t like him.”

“So, once VP Pence was in there, once President Trump was elected — and obviously Vice President Pence, he just walked away and everything became very quiet. That was their mole inside, so he could run interference and make certain things and just keep tabs on the president and manage him.”

“There was leverage on Mike Pence because of surveillance from way back in the 2013 range. They had gotten FISA warrants to exploit, and Rod had that.”


Rosenstein “wanted the vice president slot himself. Then if they could remove President Trump, Vice President Pence becomes president, and Rod felt that he would be the natural selection for it. Paul Ryan felt differently, as did Mitt Romney, but unfortunately that was the overall goal, each one of them vying for the vice presidential slot.”

“Rod thought he was the clear winner because of his legal brilliance and his management of the Mueller investigation and special counsels and things, you know, he would be the one to remove the president, damage him so thoroughly he could be removed, and he deserved it.”

The Interviewer asked, “Do you know what type of leverage would’ve existed over the vice president?”

Pence

“The vice president has had homosexual relations in the past — it’s not a problem. Many of them were adults,” White revealed. “This is something he had done throughout his time in the Congress. When he became governor he had thought that he was free to explore them more.”

“There were two specifically that they had recorded. One gentleman roughly 20 years his junior. They had a fairly
steady relationship.”

“There was one about half his age that was much more sporadic, because it was more dangerous, harder to get time alone. This person would introduce others, bring people with
him. He’d have people waiting when he showed up.”

“And it was that second one that introduced younger and younger people, ‘This is whomever, he’s 17’ and he’s really 15, ‘This is whomever, he’s 15’ and he’s really 13.”

“And Rod and Roberts, Chief Justice Roberts — a lot of the younger people involved, the ones that were brought as favors, were supplied by Jeffrey Epstein’s channels, through his channels, his people.”


“We were able to get FISA warrants because Chief Justice Roberts had vice court and helped prepare them, but it was also — Epstein was an intelligence asset of some type to various agencies around the world.”

“They used his information. They exploited it for their own good. So, when he was here, or his people were here, it was easy enough to justify a FISA warrant on them.”

“You know, they would enact a warrant, surveil everything, document it, but they would not help and they would not save the child.”

“They would not, you know, reveal it, it was more important for them to have the leverage on everything. And, of course, this was under their own corrupt ideas, but under Rod, his tutelage. And they wanted the leverage.”

Jeffrey Epstein and John Roberts first met when Roberts “was under Bush, not too long after he was appointed, somewhere along in there, just meeting powerful people, something like that. He did help him with his adopted children.”

“From what was said there and what was, you know, discussed openly in this little Dirty Trick Squad, the children are not genetically brother and sister, but they’re raised that way,
so that’s more valuable to them.”

“One if not both were originally from Wales, but they were in the Epstein channels and were easily removed
from their version of foster care to Ireland, which has much more open adoption type records.”

“He facilitated this for Roberts so he could adopt them both at the same time. There was a little gap, but it
was just paperwork. And Epstein had done that for him. So, they met, they worked together, and he was doing favors at some point.”

“Children are often used as the commodity, a way to buy yourself into certain inner circles. And these people are all wealthy, they’re all powerful, and they don’t trust you unless you’re as compromised as they are. So, you provide children to them, your children, adopted children, whatever.”

Epstein and Clinton

“This is how they trust you, you’re as dirty as they are. You cannot be exposed because you can’t expose them, they can’t expose you. If everybody’s just as dirty, you know you’re safe.”

Is there any documentation to prove this?

“Yep Yanni [phonetic] has copies of the videos from the FISA surveillance. It was discussed — but I can’t prove it — that Roberts had a copy. Rod Rosenstein certainly has a copy. Shawn Henry of CrowdStrike, who was FBI at the time, he took two copies back to the FBI with him.”

“So, the copies were made and then — that was actually Shaun Bridges who encrypted them and gave them keys.
So, there are copies out there.”

White said Roberts, Pence and their homosexual lovers and victims would be on the videos, tapes and copies.

“This was mostly in the country, illegal surveillance, with Roberts’ children and whomever they were
with. They’d set it up. They knew that they weren’t going to be exposed because it’s Chief Justice Roberts’ children. And please keep in mind that these children have been abused since birth, and I don’t want anything else happening. They’ve already lived through hell. They don’t need anything else. But they were getting loaned out for these different groups, and they did surveil many of them.”

Bridges

The Interviewer then asked about a known plot that “Roberts was allegedly a part of where they discussed murdering other judges on the Supreme Court under the Hillary Clinton administration.”

“This is something the FBI set up under their guidance, their political people, going to be a false flag. This had gone out two years almost before the election. And it was a sovereign citizen group.”

“Obama did not want any terrorism unless it was white terrorism, so this is a sovereign citizen group that the FBI had infiltrated and armed and instigated against other targets. They were for the most part pro-America, but they were racist in some of their origins. They were — a lot of them were divorced fathers with a grudge against the court system anyway, and the FBI people had infiltrated and exploited this.”

“They moved them up to the level of assassinating federal judges, political people, things like that. You want the names, I can tell ya.”

“So, anyway, part of their (inaudible) was various types of attacks on the Supreme Court, to take down as many
judges as they could, and Roberts was aware of this. He actually provided some scheduling, because apparently the justices are not all there at one time, they come and go as they please, and these three would be working on something, these three — and he provided this to the group so they could finalize their plan…the maps, they had the weapons, they had everything planned.”

Were these assassination teams American or foreign?


“No. These were Americans. A third would be the sovereign citizen group and two-thirds would be FBI people, or people working with the FBI. They were gonna get rid of them anyway. And, actually, I have recordings of their planning on the phone with me as, you know, part of this group.”

“And then they did not hang up the phone, they did not kill the phone, and we were listening to them talk about killing me and my wife, things like that. And another time they actually butt-dialed me and they were talking about — he was on the phone talking to various people about their plans, about who they were going after and what they were gonna do to us because we knew too much and we were outside at the time.”

“So, they could not do their plan. We got the people under surveillance. We saved them, got credit for saving them. They were very upset that their plans had gone to crap. They were very upset with me, especially when they came and picked me up, but it stopped it.”

“Their plans were written out. They were — they had maps, they had surveillance, they had quite a bit of
equipment.”

“This would be right after — within the first year of Hillary Clinton’s presidency. She was not supposed to lose.”

“So, this was all planned up and — it was more than just then. It was twofold. They wanted to pack the court and take out as many as they could.”

“Roberts was actually helping because he didn’t wanna be one of them, and he wanted some choice in who would serve on the bench after that. He wanted to maintain some form of control, so he did provide information.”

“But this was to be done within the first year of Hillary Clinton’s campaign so that they could ban firearms as well and impact the Court, so they’d have plenty of time to do that. That was their two main goals.”

“Do you believe the death of Antonin Scalia was a part of this same plot,” the Interviewer asked. “Or is that — do you know if that was a separate?”

“It was the same people. He had a backup plan. He was their biggest threat being the most conservative justice.”

“Justice Scalia actually — I believe he found out about this, the plans, and he went to the White House. Like a week before his death I believe he found out what they were trying to do, when they moved away from the overall attack of where these people lived or, you know, they would attack
around the holidays when more than one justice would be in their home, things like this. And, again, Roberts was providing this.”

“But they had to take him out. He was seen as their biggest obstacle. So, the same basic group that was involved
were given access to the ranch where he was found. They talked about how they did it. They had a couple different options.”

“But it was discussed prior to his death, what they intended to do, where they could possibly do it, how they could do it, who they would need. The records are there at the Cibolo Ranch.”

“One person was brought in — there was three men. One person was brought in as a temp worker. The other two — same team — were brought in as servants for a group that was there hunting.”

“And they discussed how it was done, that they used dipso –dimethylsulfoxide, which is a fairly inert chemical. It just goes through your skin. But if you mix it with a poison or a drug or something like that, it’ll go directly in your system and overload you.”

“I believe that’s why he was found with the pillow over his face; he was struggling to breathe. He couldn’t breathe, he was choking.”


“And this particular chemical, you can tailor it to the person; if they have a drug problem, you could put Fentanyl in it and overdose them, if they have a heart condition, it would take very little to go directly in.”

“It would be like a direct injection into the heart. And they talk about how they did it. And Roberts is on the phone with these people discussing the successor, that he wanted a say in it because now it was only gonna be one person and he wanted to pick that person, and he wanted a say in who was going to take it.”

“And, of course, there was a lot of people that were talking about Eric Holder taking it, all kinds of people, but he wanted a say in who was going to take over Justice Scalia’s spot. And I don’t think he got it. I mean, obviously it didn’t happen because President Trump was here, but he did want it.”

“And this was all prior, the discussions and him complaining that he wasn’t getting any say prior to his death, his sudden death.”

INTERVIEWER: “So, aside from the — aside from Roberts being (inaudible) on this, did Rosenstein or anyone outside of the White House — had they been made aware of the plans, perhaps in Hillary’s camp, that you can speak about?”

“Oh, Hillary and Obama knew about it. I mean, it was supposed to be done under her watch, her term, so that they could pack the Court. They were fully aware of it.”

“Rod has an intense hatred of Hillary even though he worked with her, and he had to. He’s not fond of Obama,
really. He’s only fond of himself. But this was plans to be enacted through them, and Rod was integral in wanting the Hammer system through
Baltimore.”

“This was why he was the only U.S. attorney to keep his job under Obama. Now, Obama fired every U.S. attorney at the same time except Rod — he was the only one — and this is why, because he was running things for them. He was involved in their plans, and he was running the Hammer and things through Baltimore.”

Notes on THE HAMMER:

Inventor and software designer Dennis Montgomery, a CIA/DOD/DHS/NSA/FBI  contractor-turned-whistleblower, alerted FBI Director James Comey’s office in 2015 that President Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan and Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had turned the super-surveillance system that Montgomery designed for foreign surveillance, known as THE HAMMER, into a domestic surveillance system.

Montgomery became alarmed when Obama and his intelligence chiefs Brennan and Clapper turned the super-surveillance system against the American people.

Montgomery realized that Obama, Brennan, and Clapper used THE HAMMER in a diabolically intrusive manner in order to spy on the American people and collect massive amounts of surveillance data for “leverage” and “blackmail.”

THE HAMMER was only to be used for foreign surveillance, not to be weaponized for domestic surveillance against the American people, according to Montgomery and to U.S. military sources.

According to those U.S. military sources, Montgomery’s surveillance technology not only saved American lives as America’s “War on Terror” broadened, but also featured built-in safeguards to prevent the system from ever being used for domestic surveillance.

“Multiple echelons” of government, including the FISA court, had to sign off on each and every foreign surveillance operation conducted with the use of THE HAMMER.

Montgomery revealed that Brennan and Clapper used the super-surveillance system Montgomery designed to spy on Article III federal judges, including the onetime head of the FISA court Judge Reggie Walton, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and Chief Justice of U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts.

Montgomery’s revelations about his super-surveillance system THE HAMMER call into question Chief Justice Robert’s strange and inexplicable 2012 decision that stood in direct opposition to his own stated legal argument. At the eleventh hour, Roberts flipped and supported the individual mandate for President Obama’s highly unpopular Affordable Care Act.

Before You Quit Facebook

Are you ready to quit Facebook? Did you download all of your Facebook data? Having second thoughts?

Deactivate Your Facebook Account

If you don’t want a Facebook account right now – but there is a chance that you will return to Facebook – here is what we suggest. Deactivate your Facebook account.

Put a Temporary Hold on Your Account

By deactivating your Facebook account, you are basically putting a temporary hold on your account. Here is what happens when your Facebook account is deactivated:

  • No one else can see your profile.
  • Some information, like messages you sent to friends, may still be visible.
  • Your friends may still see your name in their friends list. This is only visible to your friends, and only from their friends list.
  • Group admins may still be able to see your posts and comments, along with your name.
  • You will not be able to use your Facebook account to access Oculus products or your Oculus information.

Before You Deactivate – Do This!

Before you deactivate your account, you will want to make sure that your phone number and email address are accurate. Should you want to reactivate your account in the future, you will need these to access Facebook. So make sure your Facebook contact information is correct!

Don’t Forget to Deactivate Messenger

Facebook sees Facebook Messenger as a separate account. You will need to deactivate Facebook Messenger if you don’t want people to be able to message you on Facebook.

Note: You can have a deactivated Facebook account and people can still message you – unless your Facebook Messenger account is deactivated as well.

When your Facebook account is deactivated, but you still have Facebook Messenger:

  • You can still chat with friends on Facebook Messenger.
  • Your Facebook profile picture will still be visible in your conversations on Messenger.
  • Other people can search for you to send you a message.

Alternatives to Facebook and Twitter

I like redundancy. In case one site goes down or bans me, I have alternatives.

The best way to stay in touch with me is through my site www.Cleverjourneys.com. Simply go to any article and click NOTIFY ME… (just put your name or handle and email). You won’t miss an article if your favorite social media site goes down, plus it’s a direct site for all of us like minded readers. 


We plan to add chat features, but commenting on any post is working fine for many friends. 


Please pass this along to our mutual friends and family. 

I’d rather be on the Right than the Left.

I also use the MeWe social network and the Parler app. (Parler app is similar to Twitter, MeWe is similar to Facebook.) I recently joined Gab and so far seem to like it. I can be found at @jackdennistexas on Parler, jackdennistexas on Gab, and either Jackdennistexas or Texasjackson on other sites.

Parler: As of Jan. 10, 2021, I have over 6500 followers.

You can reactivate your Facebook account if you did a Facebook Deactivation (not applicable if you totally close your account.)

To reinstate or reactivate your Facebook account after you deactivated (not closed permanently) – you can reactivate your account at any time by logging back into Facebook or by using your Facebook account to log in somewhere else. To complete your account reactivation, you will need to have access to the email or mobile phone number you use to log into complete the reactivation.

If it’s been less than 30 days since you initiated the deletion, you can cancel your account deletion. After 30 days, your account and all your information will be permanently deleted, and you won’t be able to retrieve your information.

U.S. Congressional Record: 45 Communist Goals

How Liberals Have Been Totally Suckered Into Being Communists

How many of these original 45 goals can you identify as being achieved?

Congressman A.S. Herlong JR. was a Democrat from Florida. A decade before this, Sen. Eugene McCarthy had conducted congressional hearings against the communists. Herein are the communist goals as published in 1963.

THE 45 COMMUNIST GOALS AS READ INTO THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD, 1963

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35

January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals
EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

U. S. Congressional Seal

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.


2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.


3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.


5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.


6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

Winter Ice, Snow, and Storm Road Safety Basics

There are roughly 156,000 car accidents in the U.S. during the winter season. Of those crashes, 76,000 people will be injured, and 1,300 will lose their lives.

The three major causes of winter driving accidents are:

1. Spin Out Collisions

2. Rear End Car Crashes

3. Lane Drifting Accidents

Winter storms create a higher risk of car accidents, hypothermia, frostbite, carbon monoxide poisoning, and heart attacks from overexertion.

Winter storms including blizzards can bring extreme cold, freezing rain, snow, ice and high winds.

A winter storm can:

  • Last a few hours or several days.
  • Cut off heat, power and communication services.
  • Put older adults, children and sick individuals at greater risk.

IF YOU ARE UNDER A WINTER STORM WARNING, FIND SHELTER RIGHT AWAY

  • Stay off roads.
  • Stay indoors and dress warmly.
  • Prepare for power outages.

You’ve probably seen road signs advising that bridges freeze before roads, but do you know why?

Having open air underneath the bridge means the cold air surrounds the bridge both above and below.


If there’s even the chance that a bridge might be frozen, SLOW DOWN! And do it before you cross the bridge — changing speed on ice is dangerous.

When recent rain or snowmelt comes into contact with freezing temperatures, black ice can form — and you might not even see it. And while black ice is more prevalent at night, it can often stick around for the morning commute.

Avoid driving if you can…don’t let black ice sneak up on you.

Compared to a typical snowstorm, freezing rain is much more hazardous — especially on the road. While both are dangerous, it’s far easier to lose control of your vehicle on icy pavement, not to mention the increased risk of falling branches and powerlines.


Bottom line: do not drive if there is, or recently was, freezing rain.

Rain may seem like less of a winter driving hazard than snow, but when temperatures are near freezing, that’s not the case. Ice can form quickly and make roads slick.

In these conditions, slow down, don’t use cruise control, and keep plenty of distance between you and other vehicles. Don’t let this winter hazard sneak up on you!
