AP, Dec 29, 2014 (emphasis added): One unit of Ukraine’s Zaporozhiya nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe, has been taken offline… State nuclear power company Energoatom says the unit was disconnected… to prevent internal damage to the generator. It did not give further details, but said radiation in the area is within acceptable limits. It is the second time this month that a unit at the plant has been taken out of service…

The Independent, Dec 28, 2014: Ukraine turns off reactor at its most powerful nuclear plantafter ‘accident’; Prime Minister calls for the truth as electrical fault revives memories of Chernobyl — Ukraine shut down one of the six reactors… because of an apparent electrical malfunction… An official statement said the plant was “operating at 40 per cent power… The reasons for the outage are being investigated”… The Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, noted the previous outage during one of his Cabinet sessions, urging ministers to tell the truth about “the accident”… In May, the power station was the backdrop to an armed confrontation… the pro-Ukrainian paramilitary force… said it had come to remove “pro-Russian” agitators who, it claimed, had been operating inside the plant.

Rossiya Segodnya (Russian gov’t news agency), Dec 29, 2014: Radiation Levels Spike at Zaporhizhia Nuclear Plant: DPR Official — According to Donetsk People’s Republic official radiation spike was caused by a failed attempt to replace Russian-made fuel rods with US components. Radiation levels at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant are 14 times higher than normal, according to DPR representative Denis Pushilin… [The] state nuclear corporation, Energoatom, denied Pushilin’s claims and declared that currently, radiation levels at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant and in its vicinity are within acceptable parameters.

Radio Free Europe, Dec 29, 2014: Ukraine Separatist Leader Warns Against Using U.S. Nuclear Fuel… The Russian news agency Interfax reported that in a statement on December 28, [Denis] Pushilin said Ukraine faces “a second Chornobyl” due to Kyiv’s decision to use nuclear fuel supplied by Westinghouse… Pushilin said that “currently the level of radiation is 14 times higher than the acceptable norm” in the area around the Zaporizhzhya plant… Interfax said it could not confirm “from any other source” the separatist official’s claim of dangerous levels of radioactivity near the plant… Westinghouse has a contract to supply some 10 percent to 15 percent of Ukraine’s nuclear fuel.

Radio Free, Dec 28, 2014: Donetsk Separatist Official Warns Of Second Chornobyl… Pushilin said “currently the level of radiation is 14 times higher than the acceptable norm” in the area around the Zaparizhzhya plant and that the problem started November 28…

RT, Dec 29, 2014: Emergency shutdown at Ukraine’s largest nuclear power plant… This accident took place on Sunday morning at 05:59 am local time. Causes are still being investigated… Two Zaporizhia NPP reactors are to be decommissioned for complete overhaul in February 2015… Throughout 2014 Zaporizhzhya NPP came into the spotlight of world media on several occasions. In May, Ukrainian police prevented a group of armed men… from entering… Then the news came that Kiev had signed a new deal with America’s leading nuclear fuel producer, Westinghouse Electric Company… This was done despite the fact that using US fuel rods was banned in 2012 due to dangerous incompatibility… In August, Greenpeace expressed concern that Zaporizhia NPP is vulnerable to ‘direct bombardment’ in Ukraine if caught in the conflict.

New Russian Military Doctrine Names the U.S.
and NATO as Main Foreign Threats
Dec 27, 2014
On Dec 26, 2014, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

12/26 – Vladimir Putin signs new mil doctrine naming NATO, US as main foreign threats, retains strategy to use nukes if country or allies are under conventional attack.

What You Need To Know

Readers will recall that last week, AlertsUSA and Threat Journal reported on the announcement made by the White House that President Obama would be signing a bill from Congress which adds new sanctions on Russia and would codify into law the provision of lethal military aid to the Ukrainian government. (If you have not had a chance to read the piece, it is well worth taking a few min to review). This week Russia responded and they are clearly not backing down.

On Friday the 26th, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices that Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the country’s new military doctrine (See the original Russia version here (PDF)) which “reflects the emergence of new threats against its national security”, names the U.S. and NATO as the federation’s main foreign threats, and which retains the strategy to use nuclear weapons if the country or allies are under conventional attack.

According to the revised doctrine, “NATO’s military buildup” and the bloc’s expansion toward the Russian borders are among the main external threats to Russia’s security.

Other external threats include the development and deployment of the U.S. strategic missile defense system, the implementation of the ‘global strike’ doctrine, plans to place weapons in space as well as the deployment of high-precision conventional weapons systems.

So as to reinforce their message to the West, just a few hours prior to the new military doctrine being signed, Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces carried out another test of an RS-24 Yars ICBM with multiple warheads. Launched from the Plesetsk military cosmodrome in the country’s extreme northwest near the border of Finland, the missile flew across the length of Russia to it’s target at the Kura test range on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Far East.

AlertsUSA continues to closely monitor growing tension in Eastern Europe and the Ukraine and will issue additional alert messages to subscriber mobile devices as threats and events warrant.

NY Cop Killer May Have Been Responding
to ISIS Fatwa, More Attacks Expected
Dec 27, 2014
Between Dec 20-22, 2014, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

12/20 – DHS/FBI warning law enfor agencies of need for extra vigilance after ambush-style slaying of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn. Possible Islamic terrorism angle.

12/22 – FBI warning law enf of ISIS plot to bomb interstate highway bridge(s). Initial alert focuses on I-55 Memphis-Arkansas Bridge sometime in Dec. Monitoring…

What You Need To Know

Twice this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding domestic terrorism threats. Perhaps most important, late Saturday of last week subscribers were notified that law enforcement agencies nationwide were being warned of the need for extra vigilance following the ambush-style slaying of two New York City police officers in Brooklyn.

NY COP KILLER A MUSLIM, SYMPATHETIC TO JIHAD

Despite efforts by the mainstream media to paint the gunman as a disturbed individual deeply troubled by racial tensions and perceived heavy handedness of police towards the black population, investigations by independent media outlets also show cop killer Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley to be a Muslim, an Arabic speaker, and by his own words sympathetic to jihad. Much can be gleaned from his social media accounts (see this, this and this.)

Brinsley was also known to visit the notorious Al-Farooq Mosque in Brooklyn, which itself has a 20+ year history of support for terrorism. This specific mosque played host to al Qaeda co-founder Abdullah Azzam. Several of the mosque’s members were behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing plot, including the Blind Sheik, Omar Abdel-Rahman. A one time imam of the mosque, Gulshair Shukrijumah, was father to the notorious Adnan Shukrijumah, a top Al-Qaeda operative who, after being hunted by the FBI for more than a decade, was killed just weeks ago in a gun battle with Pakistani forces.

MORE ATTACKS EXPECTED

While the killing of the police officers is tragic, this incident is just one of an increasing number of Muslim attacks in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Readers are reminded that in mid October, AlertsUSA notified subscribers via SMS messages to their mobile devices that the FBI and Department of Homeland Security were warning law enforcement agencies nationwide about the threat of Islamic State-inspired terror attacks against police officers, soldiers and other government workers. The warning was issued after a string of messages and fatwas appeared on the internet and various social media outlets urging Muslims in Western countries to carry out attacks on “soldiers, patrons, and troops … their police, security and intelligence members.”

These messages were originally preceded by a lengthy fatwa issued by ISIS in September which calls for lone wolf Muslims to kill as many as 10 million Americans. ( Arabic Version (PDF) / Analysis ).

POLITICALLY INCORRECT TRUTHS

However politically incorrect it may be, as we close out 2014 there are two major domestic threats readers are urged to keep on their radar:

1. A major race war is brewing in the United States. Black on white violent crime is experiencing a major upswing nationwide. Watch your back.

2. An increasing tempo of random attacks, by Muslims, on law enforcement, members of the armed services and average citizens. Lest we forget, in just the last few months we have seen Muslim attacks in Australia, beheadings forfailure to convert in Oklahoma, multiple instances of attacks, by Muslims, on police (see this and this), attacks on soldiers and government officials in Canada (see this, this and this) and several European countries (see this, thisand this) and on, and on, and on.

And perhaps by design, the growing connection between militant black Americans and Islam is shaping up to be a deadly confluence. (see this andthis).

In both instances, we strongly recommend maintaining a high level of vigilance and situational awareness when out and about and if so motivated, avail yourself of local concealed firearm permits. These problems are not going away anytime soon, are expected to increase, and your best line of defense is increased awareness and a means of protecting yourself and family.

As has been the case for over 12 years, AlertsUSA continues to closely monitor the overall domestic terrorism threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture as events warrant.

What Happened to All the Ebola News Coverage ?
Dec 27, 2014
What You Need To Know

On Sunday of this week, highly respected investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson told Fox News that the CDC revealed to her they are currently tracking 1,400 possible Ebola cases in the United States, though they are not making the information public.

In addition, as of December 24th the World Health Organization reports a total of more than 19,400 cases of Ebola virus disease in the current outbreak, along with 7588 reported deaths. As previously reported, both the WHO and CDC estimate these numbers could be 4 or more times greater due to unreported cases and flawed record keeping.

As always, AlertsUSA continues to monitor developments with the spread of this virus and will immediately notify service subscribers of major changes in its spread to different regions, important notices and warnings by government agencies or any other major changes in the overall threat environment as events warrant


Travel Security Update

The U.S. Dept. of State is the authoritative federal source for information on the security situation at travel destinations worldwide. With tensions rapidly increasing in most regions, readers planning on international travel, even to such common destinations as Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean Islands, are strongly encouraged to do a little research on the security situation prior to departure.

President Obama’s “gift” to Americans this holiday season is to renege on his 2009 pledge “to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.”

Obama Upgrades Nuclear Arsenal For “Direct Confrontation With Russia”
By Sherwood Ross (about the author)

opednews.com Headlined to H3 12/23/14

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Obama-Upgrades-Nuclear-Ars-by-Sherwood-Ross-Nuclear-Cover-up_Nuclear-Powers_Obama-Administration_Obama-Nuclear-141223-671.html

President Obama’s “gift” to Americans this holiday season is to renege on his 2009 pledge “to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.”

He is upgrading the lethality level of an atomic arsenal already so deadly it can destroy all life on Earth. Then he’ll send Mr. and Mrs. America the bill, estimated by one Federal study at $1-trillion, to pay for the deadly upgrades he wants, rather than the peaceful improvements Americans need.

“The stated goal of the program is to increase the ‘reliability’ of US nuclear forces,” writes Theodore Postol in the Dec. 29 issue of “The Nation”. “But a close analysis reveals a technically sophisticated effort to ready US nuclear forces for a direct confrontation with Russia.”

Author Postol, a former adviser to the Chief of Naval Operations, slams this modernization as “a reckless policy that directly undermines our safety and national security.”

He writes, “No rational actor would take steps to start a nuclear war. But the modernization effort significantly increases the chances of an accident during an unpredicted, and unpredictable crisis—one that could escalate beyond anyone’s capacity to imagine.”

Why, Postol wants to know, does the White House aim to overhaul “the entire US nuclear-weapons arsenal, with a particular focus on improving the fusing systems and accuracy of long-range land- and sea-based ballistic-missile warheads and on increasing the killing power of other nuclear warheads.”

And, he says, the scale and character of these weapons’ effects are so large and so deadly that any notion of using them in a controlled or limited way “is completely disconnected from reality.” Postol’s article is appropriately titled, “Striving for Armageddon: How the Obama Administration Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.”

Today’s nuclear bombs are vastly more deadly than those the U.S. used to scourge Japan at the end of World War Two. But Postol writes that improving the reliability of fuses on the ballistic-missile warheads disguises the fact the fuses “have been modified to increase the killing power of the warheads.”

What’s more, “Painstaking efforts have also gone into improving their delivery accuracy” and when the results of these combined activities are summarized for Russian political leaders, “it is not hard to understand their alarm.” Postol asserts that it is the U.S. that has pushed the Russians to a higher state of alert.

He reminds, “There is a long history of accidents during the Cold War that brought the United States treacherously close to disaster.” In one major false alert, a training tape loaded into a computer “made it appear to US launch officers that a full-scale Soviet attack was under way.”

And he believes the Russians have good reason to be worried. “With a fully modernized arsenal, the formerly ‘less capable’ nuclear warheads will be able to destroy Russian silo-based ICBMs with confidence. This would free up higher-yield nuclear warheads for other war-fighting tasks, enabling the US military to inflict greater damage on Russian command centers, fixed military facilities and civilian industrial infrastructures.”

Despite Mr. Obama’s recognition that peace depends on nuclear disarmament, Postol says, “the US is making those nightmare scenarios more likely by rebuilding the stockpile of atomic warheads as if they were just another form of conventional weapon.” They aren’t.

When Russia was communist and occupying much of Eastern Europe, U.S. leaders claimed they had to be armed to the teeth. Now that the Russians have scrapped the failed Bolshevik system, have become largely capitalist, and have withdrawn from Eastern Europe, President Obama is following the same Cold War policy. Only now the risks are greater than ever.#

attkisson 2

From a Fox News interview on the #MediaBuzz, Sharyl Attkisson said that she has uncovered evidence that Ebola is making an impressive comeback. Actually, comeback may be the wrong term. The proper term is coverup. Here is an excerpt from the Attkisson interview:

“Infectious disease experts remain very concerned about the disease. A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since the administration has appointed an Ebola czar. And I don’t think that’s any accident.. I called CDC not long ago and said, How many active cases are being monitored in the United States of Ebola?” And they said, 1,400.” And I said, “Where is that on your website, these updates?” And they said, “We’re not putting it on the web. So I think there’s an effort to control the message and tamp it down. This is public information we have a right to and I think the media should not hype it but cover it.

The Christmas shopping season will be over in a short time. Subsequently, the need to make the country feel safe to go out in public, is almost over from a retail standpoint. This coincides with the announcement of an Ebola vaccine which will be ready to market in January of 2015.

This makes perfect sense since Bill Gates invested over a half a billion dollar in the Global Fund to vaccinate as many as possible with the Ebola vaccine. Of course, the CDC owns the patent on Ebola and any treatment will add to their bottom line. Things are about ready to get very interesting.

Attkisson said, “I called CDC not long ago and I said how many cases are being monitored in the United States and they said 1,400.

Tensions With Russia Flare
Dec 20, 2014

On Dec 16, 2014, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:
12/16 – POTUS to sign bill adding sanctions on Russia and providing LETHAL AID to Ukraine. Russia threatens possible preemptive use of full military force in Ukraine.

What You Need To Know
On Tues of this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding an announcement by the White House that President Obama would be signing a bill from Congress which adds new sanctions on Russia and would codify into law the provision of lethal aid to the Ukrainian government.

Known as the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014, the bill is intended to “assist the government of Ukraine in restoring its sovereignty and territorial integrity in order to deter the government of the Russian Federation from further destabilizing and invading Ukraine and other independent countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.” .

Even before the bill made it out of Congress, at least one member of Russia’s Duma called the bill “extremely dangerous” and suggested the decision to arm Ukraine should prompt ‘adequate measures’ from Russia, such as the use of military force on Ukrainian territory preemptively. “We should not wait until Ukraine is armed and becomes really dangerous.” Similar warnings were issued in late November during a visit to Ukraine by Vice President Joe Biden.

Readers might find it interesting to note that documents released late last month by the Ukrainian hackers group CyberBerkut reveal that the US may in fact already be providing substantial lethal aid to Ukraine’s armed forces. According to CyberBerkut, during Vice President Biden’s two-day trip to Kiev in November, they were able to gain access to confidential State Department files that had been stored on American delegation member’s mobile device.

Those documents show that the Obama Administration has been supplying Ukraine with lethal aid as far back as the August, including sniper and assault rifles, grenade launchers, mortars, stinger missiles and anti-tank weapons.Read the here. See the docs here.

AlertsUSA advises readers that while the American public is being distracted with all manner of mainstream media fluff stories, be advised that our world is becoming more and more dangerous by the day.

From the surge of U.S. and NATO forces in Eastern Europe over the past year, the increasing number of tense encounters between armed NATO and Russian aircraft (more than 400 times this year – see this, this, and this) and a declining Russian currency resulting from a collapse in oil and gas prices just to name a few, tensions between the U.S., NATO and Russia are at an extremely dangerous level.

In a recent interview with the German publication Der Spiegel, former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger gave a chilling assessment of a new geopolitical situation taking shape, calling the West’s approach to Ukraine a “fatal mistake.” He characterized the tense relations as exhibiting the danger of another Cold War and warned that ignoring this danger any further may result in a “tragedy.”

We also remind readers that while the Obama Administration and U.S. media paint Russia as the aggressor in this situation, in Feb of this year a video was leaked showing Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, giving a presentation before a private group at the National Press Club in Washington within which she openly admits that the U.S. government has spent five BILLION dollars in an effort to subvert the Russian friendly Ukrainian government in order to bring into power the country into the U.S. sphere of influence (also see this).

DIRECT STRATEGIC THREATS

The resulting riots and change of government, in turn, posed a number of direct strategic threats to Russia, ultimately forcing them to move on Crimea in order to protect access to their naval base at Sevastopol, as well as to the Black Sea in general.

As an example, consider the geography of the region. Looking at a map you will see that the Black Sea is Western Russia’s singular warm-water access point. All other ports in the North of the country, with the exception of Murmansk near the northeast corner of Finland, are blocked by ice at least 6 months out of each year. The only reason Murmansk remains ice free is due to the warm waters of the N. Atlantic current. Although 9 time zones in size, more than 90% of Russia’s population lives in the Western third of the country.

Additionally, although Crimea was/is recognized as a part of Ukraine, it was/is actually an autonomous region . The Russian Navy has kept its Black Sea Fleet stationed at a naval base on the peninsula since the late 1700s and the time of Napoleon and Catherine the Great. The Port of Sevastopol has a large, deep, defensible harbor and is accessible in all seasons. In 2010, Russia negotiated an agreement with Ukraine that allows use of the strategically located Sevastopol naval base through 2042 in exchange for discounts on natural gas.

While Crimea is physically detached from Russia, it is connected by those parts of eastern and southern Ukraine that contain a large Russian speaking, pro-Russian population.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

We would be remiss if we did not also play “follow the money” and point out that Ukraine is a critical corridor for oil and gas pipelines from Russia and the Caspian region into Europe. These pipelines and the product they carry generate huge profits for Russia and directly compete with the planned Southern route which is at the heart of the instability in Syria .

Ukraine Oil/Gas Pipeline Map – ALLOW IMAGES

With just these few items (there are many more), it is easy to see how Russia is being backed into a corner. Their strategic interests and national security are directly threatened.

JOE BIDEN’S SON ON BOARD OF UKRAINE’S
LARGEST INDEPENDANT NATURAL GAS PRODUCER

It is also important to note that in May of 2014, near the height of the Ukraine crisis, Hunter Biden, the youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden, was appointed to the Board of Directors of Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest independent producer of natural gas.

You can read more on this aspect of the story here.

Hunter Biden’s appointment came just weeks after being dishonorably discharged from the U.S. Navy Reserves after testing positive for cocaine use.

You can read more on this aspect of the story here.

DANGER AHEAD

It would be naive to think that Russia is going to allow Ukraine to fall into the arms of NATO without a vigorous fight. The strategic importance of the country is far too great. Additionally, readers are reminded that Russian President Putin, Prime Minister Medvedev and the Chief of the Russian General Staff Gen. Nikolai Makarov, have on multiple occasions in the last 3 years made explicitly clear that Russia would use nuclear weapons, including in a preemptive capacity, if there is a threat to the integrity of the Russian Federation (see this, this, and this). These scenarios include conventional attacks on Russia or it’s strategic partners, placement of missile shield installations in former Soviet-bloc countrie s and more.

AlertsUSA continues to closely monitor growing tension in Eastern Europe and the Ukraine and will issue additional alert messages to subscriber mobile devices as threats and events warrant .

USGOV Issues Worldwide Travel Alert
Following Sydney Terror Attack
Dec 19, 2014

On Dec 19, 2014, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:
12/19 – USGOV issues worldwide travel alert in aftermath of AUS terror incident. US citizens urged to remain vigilant over holidays and to enhance personal security.

What You Need To Know
On Friday of this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding a new Worldwide Travel Alert issued by the U.S. State Department in the aftermath of the lone wolf Muslim terror attack in Sydney, Australia on December 15, 2014, which resulted in the deaths of two hostages in addition to the perpetrator.

An analysis of past attacks and threat reporting strongly suggests a focus by terrorists not only on the targeting of U.S. government facilities but also on hotels, shopping areas, places of worship, and schools, among other targets, during or coinciding with this holiday period. U.S. citizens abroad should be mindful that terrorist groups and those inspired by them can pose unpredictable threats in public venues. U.S. citizens should remain alert to local conditions and for signs of danger.

As has been the case for over 12 years, AlertsUSA continues to closely monitor the overall domestic terrorism threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture as events warrant.
