End of the world: Why Is the Media Ignoring the Mass Sinkholes Popping Up Around the US of America?



Have you heard of the massive sinkholes popping up around the US of America? Flammable craters spanning acres wide and leaking radiation, monster sinkholes described as ‘apocalyptic’ have forced residents out of homes, expelled radiation into the environment, and are now ushering in concerns about serious Earth changes in the near future. If you’ve heard of these sinkholes, chances are it has been from the alternative media.
It’s a hot issue on forums, some social networking sectors, and certain alternative talk radio programs. Sure, it has come up in some mainstream reports here and there, but there are virtually no in-depth pieces tying everything together. And they often fail to mention the scale of these sinkholes, behemoth anomalies that can swallow up 100 foot trees, houses, with the latest Ohio sinkhole devouring 4 football fields of land. Events that are sending residents scrambling.

You can see a video of the Ohio sinkhole below:


Fracking, Drilling, Mining Responsible for Sinkhole Changing Earth Events?

A more serious issue, even beyond the dangers posed by these radiation-leaking sinkholes, is how man-made processes like fracking and excessive drilling are changing the planet on a larger scale. Bloomberg reports that fracking is a likely cause for a dramatic rise (sixfold) in earthquake activity from 2000 to 2011. Not to mention contamination of the water and food supply.

Extreme mining practices by Texas Brine and others are also responsible for triggering the sinkholes.
So are these actions ‘waking up’ the New Madrid fault line? In case you’re not familiar, the New Madrid fault line was responsible for the legendary 1811-1812 earthquakes dubbed the ‘New Madrid’ earthquakes.

Extremely powerful and devastating earthquakes that are the most significant earthquakes to hit the United States in all of recorded history. As Investment Watch explains, the research indicating fracking and excessive mining in the expansion of earthquakes along the Madrid line reveals a concerning and plausible reality.
It is important to note that the New Madrid fault line includes areas within Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. In the event of a large (8.0 or higher) earthquake along the fault line, however, a much greater area would likely be affected.

Outside of the repercussions of the sinkholes, such as the radiation issue and major possibility of implosion or massive disruption in the area, what are the larger consequences of invasive fracking? Could a massive disaster be the result of greedy corporations endangering the entire nation? Furthermore, why is the mainstream media shying away from the issue completely?

Revealed: The U.S. President’s $223 million ‘doomsday’ plane



Revealed: The U.S. President’s $223 million ‘doomsday’ plane that protects him against nuclear war, asteroids and terror attacks




It can withstand a nuclear bomb, asteroid blasts and terror attacks while staying airborne for days without refueling: It’s the president’s $223 million ‘doomsday’ plane and it’s on standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ready to launch at a minute’s notice.
The United States’ so-called Doomsday plane is a jumbo jet on steroids, set apart from other Boeing 747′s by its radiation-protected shell, 67 antennae and satellite dishes that can communicate with anyone on the ground, advanced heating and cooling systems and loads of other high-tech top-secret gear.
In the case of a national disaster, the plane’s four turbofan jet engine can fly for days without refueling and it can reach speeds of up to 620 miles per hour, whereas commercial planes can only fly up to 580 miles per hour.

Perhaps the most surprising fact about the ‘doomsday’ plane is its age. The aircraft was built more than 30 years ago in the 1980s, and still retains much of its technology from that era.
‘In the event of a disaster low tech can be very advantageous,’ a tech sergeant told the Discovery Channel, which is airing a special on America’s ‘doomsday’ plans this week. ‘The higher the tech, the more electronics. [When] you rely on more parts, it’s more susceptible to breaking.’
The plane has been modified and updated over the years with advances in technology.

Lt. Col. David Gaskill, who oversees the day-to-day operations of the president’s Doomsday plane, told U.S. Strategic Command in 2010 it is the ‘most technologically advanced airborne system in the world.’
The plane, which was last airborne during the terror attacks on 9/11, is designed to launch within five minutes in the case of a surprise alarm. Specially-trained technicians sleep near the plane in case of emergency.
But the Doomsday aircraft is only one slice of the United States’ plans for protecting high-ranking officials in the case of a national emergency.

The federal government also has a top-secret underground complex called ‘Mount Weather’ located 64 miles from Washington, D.C. in Virginia.
Buried 300 feet underground, the massive complex features 20 multistory buildings, water reservoirs, a sewage treatment plant, a hospital, a crematorium and a television studio where the president can keep the American people apprised of what’s going on.
The compound has enough supplies to last 200 personnel a month, but enough bunks for 2,000 people.

Former president Ronald Reagan made the country’s doomsday plan a top priority during his administration.
Reagan put his chief of staff, Donald Rumsfield, and then-congressman Dick Cheney in charge of his ‘continuity of government’ plan.
Rumsfeld and Reagan role-played doomsday scenarios as top level officials.
‘We would have a scenario that was a nuclear war,’ Jim Wink, who oversaw the role-playing and preparation, told the Discovery Channel. ‘Washington, D.C. would get wiped out. The president of the United States would be killed and the senior candidate out there would become the president.’

Wink said top-level cabinet officials would be secluded for up to three days during the exercises.
‘The way the exercises were carried out was in the utmost secrecy and they would tell no one — not even tell their wives — where they would be,’ said national security expert James Mann.
The annual budget for the U.S. doomsday plan is between $5 billion and $6 billion dollars.
Much of the country’s emergency preparation falls to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, which also handles natural disasters, such as Superstorm Sandy.

Roughly 30 percent of FEMA head Craig Fugate’s job is dealing with the secret continuity programs, according to U.S. News and World Report.
The U.S. Air Force is also a key part of the plan. The Air Force has a a strategic command center dedicated to emergency preparation at its at Offutt Air Force base near Omaha, which houses four Boeing 747s designed to allow the president to govern from the air.
