Ya know, you would kinda think that the news media would find that this is something that every one in the country should be alerted about. That way, the people in those specific states, neighboring states, and the rest of the country, can decide to monitor what is going on or not. I find it appalling that we find out, days or weeks after something strange happens What the hell is wrong with the media in this country? They need to wake up, before they have no followers, thus no jobs!

CNN, Feb 7, 2015 (emphasis added): Mysterious filth rained down… onto Washington and Oregon on Friday… described it as “white stuff” or “milky rain.” Rainwater filling a collector at the NWS [NOAA’s National Weather Service] looked like it was pulled from a muddy river.

Reuters, Feb 10, 2015: “We’re fairly certain it came from Nevada” [NWS] scientist Mary Wister said… federal scientists at the… Hanford nuclear site have suggested… winds may have carried ash… from Japan‘s Sakurajima volcano… [Wister] cautioned that without a chemical analysis of the milky rain, it would be impossible to pinpoint its origins.

KNDU, Feb 10, 2015: Rare ‘Milky Rain’ Most Likely Traveled From Ancient Lake in Oregon… nearly 500 miles away… [The] substance has not yet been scientifically confirmed… Originally, a large storm that hit northwest Nevada was blamed… “But the trajectory just didn’t add up,” said [NWS] meteorologist Mary Wister… “The wind direction would have carried the dust into western Montana.”

Oregonian, Feb 9, 2015: ‘Milky rain’ falling in Oregon, Washington still a big mystery to meteorologists — Meteorologists are stumped by the spooky “milky rain”… over the past two days… “There are a whole bunch of theories,” [NWS meteorologist Robert Cramp] said. “But the reports are coming in from a limited area“… concentrated in the Columbia River Basin. — CAPTION: A bizarre, murky rain is reportedly leaving chalky spots on cars… [NWS] is reportedly testing it.

KPLU, Feb 10, 2015: Scientists from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory [next to Hanford] intend to study the muddy rain this week. They have a theory that the sediment is ash from a Japanese volcano… the Benton Clean Air Agency [Hanford is in Benton County] also intends to test samples. They think the sediment might be from a southeast Oregon lake, a recently burned area in Oregon or possibly even Nevada dust… [NWS] also has a sample, but says it won’t test it… a weather service spokesman said the sample was likely contaminated [and its] whereabouts… couldn’t be accounted for.

KUOW, Feb 9, 2015: Much of eastern Washington and Oregon was pelted with a dirty rain, but so far scientists do not agree on a cause… Scientists say… this 200-mile event… is unusual. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory… plans to test samples this week.

Live Science, Feb 13, 2015: Robin Priddy, director of Benton Clean Air [Agency said] it’s unclear where the dust came from, especially since it was a windless day, Priddy told Live Science… it’s rare to see muddy rain in the winter, and the rain’s mysterious white color still has researchers scratching their heads… Though researchers at Benton Clean Air took samples… lab technicians weren’t tasked with figuring out the origins of the sediment… Pacific Northwest National Laboratory also took samples, though later found they didn’t collect enough to analyze, said Mary Beckman, a lab spokeswoman. But the lab never planned to do a real study on the material, she said. “It was purely out of curiosity.”

KNDU, Feb 9, 2015: This… is very unusual for [the Tri-Cities area next to Hanford].

Mary Wister, NOAA NWS: “This is something that I have not personally seen in my career.”

Robin Priddy, Benton Clear Air Agency: “As much dust as we have around… it usually comes in sideways, not from the top when the air is still. Obviously, we were aware something pretty unusual was going on.” >> Watch the broadcast here

Oh My God! CDC Comments on New Bourbon Virus! Only One Persons Has Ever Had It! They don’t know the symptoms, they don’t know the source, they don’t know how to detect it, and they don’t know anything at all, except that there is a new Bourbon Virus! (Sarcasm Supplied)

From CDC, Atlanta:
http://www.cdc.gov/ncezid/dvbd/bourbon/index.html

Bourbon virus

What is Bourbon virus?
Bourbon virus belongs to a group of viruses called thogotoviruses. Viruses in this group are found all over the world. A few of these viruses can cause people to get sick.

How do people get infected with Bourbon virus?
We do not yet fully know how people become infected with Bourbon virus. However, based on what we know about similar viruses, it is likely that Bourbon virus is spread through tick or other insect bites

Where have cases of Bourbon virus disease occurred?
As of February 12, 2015, only one case of Bourbon virus disease had been identified in eastern Kansas in late spring 2014. The man who was infected later died. At this time, we do not know if the virus might be found in other areas of the United States.

What are the symptoms of Bourbon virus?
Because there has been only one case identified thus far, scientists are still learning about possible symptoms caused by this new virus. In the one person who was diagnosed with Bourbon virus disease, symptoms included fever, tiredness, rash, headache, other body aches, nausea, and vomiting. The person also had low blood counts for cells that fight infection and help prevent bleeding.

Who is at risk for infection with Bourbon virus?
People likely become infected with Bourbon virus when they are bitten by a tick or other insect. Therefore, people who do not take steps to protect themselves from tick or insect bites when they work or spend time outside may be more likely to be infected.

How can people reduce the chance of becoming infected with Bourbon virus?
There is no vaccine or drug to prevent or treat Bourbon virus disease. Therefore, preventing bites from ticks and other insects may be the best way to prevent infection. Here are ways to protect yourself from tick and other bug bites when you are outdoors:
Use insect repellents
Wear long sleeves and pants
Avoid bushy and wooded areas
Perform thorough tick checks after spending time outdoors
Additional information on reducing exposure to ticks is available on the CDC Ticks website.

How do I know if I have been infected with Bourbon virus?
Currently, no laboratory tests are routinely available to tell if a person is infected with Bourbon virus. Tests that will help a doctor diagnose Bourbon virus infection are being developed. See your healthcare provider if you have any symptoms that concern you.

What is the treatment for Bourbon virus disease?
Because there is no medicine to treat Bourbon virus disease, doctors can only treat the symptoms. For example, some patients may need to be hospitalized and given intravenous fluids and treatment for pain and fever. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, including Bourbon virus.

What should I do if I think someone might be infected with Bourbon virus?
See your healthcare provider if you have any symptoms that concern you.

Can Bourbon virus cause animals to become ill?
Scientists do not yet know what animals can get infected or become sick from Bourbon virus. Studies are ongoing to look at this. See your veterinarian if your pet or livestock have any symptoms that concern you.

Reuters: ” U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, a city along the Texas border with Mexico, issued a temporary court order on Monday stopping Obama’s executive actions” due to illegality of the executive action!!!

U.S. delays Obama’s immigration steps after judge’s rebuke
Jeff Mason
Richard Cowan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s administration on Tuesday delayed implementing his unilateral steps to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation after a judge blocked the actions at the urging of 26 states accusing Obama of exceeding his powers.

In a setback to the president, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, a city along the Texas border with Mexico, issued a temporary court order on Monday stopping Obama’s executive actions that bypassed a gridlocked Congress.

Hanen’s action left in disarray U.S. policy toward the roughly 11 million people in the country illegally.
Obama said he disagreed with the ruling and expected his administration to prevail once the issue made its way through the courts.

“The law is on our side and history is on our side,” Obama told reporters in the Oval Office.
The president said the administration will comply with the judge’s order and delay accepting applications from some of the illegal immigrants for deportation relief and work permits that had been set to begin on Wednesday.

“We will be prepared to implement this fully as soon as the legal issues get resolved,” Obama said. He urged Congress to pass legislation to reform the U.S. immigration system more broadly.

Obama said the Justice Department will appeal Hanen’s preliminary injunction to the majority conservative 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Hanen has previously issued other opinions critical of the Obama administration’s enforcement of immigration laws.

Hanen’s preliminary injunction is not a ruling on the merits of the lawsuit filed by 26 states, led by Republican bastions such as Texas.

The judge issued his opinion amid a fight in the Republican-led U.S. Congress over legislation passed by the House of Representatives to allow funding for the Department of Homeland Security only if Obama’s immigration actions were nullified. The department is charged with securing U.S. borders, airports and coastal waters.
Neither Republicans nor Democrats showed signs of backing down, especially with the court order being a preliminary one.

The judge hemmed in Obama’s exertion of executive power on Nov. 20 that has drawn the ire of Republican elected officials who say he exceeded his constitutional authority.

“President Obama abdicated his responsibility to uphold the United States Constitution when he attempted to circumvent the laws passed by Congress via executive fiat, and Judge Hanen’s decision rightly stops the president’s overreach in its tracks,” said Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

DEPORTATION RELIEF
Obama’s executive orders would let up to 4.7 million illegal immigrants stay without threat of deportation. It was aimed mainly at helping 4.4 million people whose children are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.

About 270,000 people would be able to stay under the expansion of a 2012 program that offered deportation relief to people brought illegally to the United States as children, allowing them work. That expansion had been set to begin on Wednesday.

Immigration lawyers said many applicants for deportation relief under Obama’s order had already filed paperwork and the required $465 fee ahead of the beginning of the first stage of the executive action. They now must decide whether to withdraw their applications and be refunded, or continue in hopes the injunction is overturned.

Obama’s administration billed his moves as the biggest immigration policy shift since 1986 changes passed under President Ronald Reagan. Immigration policy is certain to become an important topic in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Most of the illegal immigrants in the United States come from Mexico and other Latin American countries. Guatamala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico said they were disappointed with the Texas judge’s order.

Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said Obama’s moves provided “a just migration solution for millions of families and could reinforce the significant contributions of Mexican migrants to the American economy and society.”

The judge wrote that the administration had not complied with procedures needed for putting into effect Obama’s immigration moves, which he made after House Republicans blocked bipartisan immigration legislation passed by the Senate in 2013.

In his opinion, Hanen wrote that “the states have clearly proven a likelihood of success on the merits” of the case. Hanen wrote it was “disingenuous” for the administration to maintain Obama’s actions merely “supplements and amends” current policy.

“It represents a massive change in immigration practice, and will have a significant effect on, not only illegally present immigrants, but also the nation’s entire immigration scheme and the states who must bear the lion’s share of its consequences,” Hanen wrote.

Republicans argue that Obama often has overstepped his presidential authority in areas also including U.S.-Cuba policy and changes in his signature healthcare law.

In aiming to thwart Obama’s moves on immigration, they risk further alienating Hispanic voters and being accused of interfering with counterterrorism efforts by holding up money for homeland security. Republicans say there will be no interruption in the homeland security agency’s critical protective missions.

FBI Warns on ISIS Recruitment of Teens
Feb 07, 2015

On Feb. 3, 2015, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:
2/3 – FBI cautioning American parents re ISIS presence on social media and their persuasive propaganda appealing to teens. The gist: Proactively warn your kids.

What You Need To Know
On Tues AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices of a new push by the FBI to warn parents of the active efforts of the Islamic State to use social media in the recruitment of teens. These efforts span the gambit, from Jihadist rap music videos to preying on teen’s growing sense of rebellion and alluring messages of false hope and a sense of identity.

If you think these efforts just target boys and men, think again.

According to Michael Steinbach, head of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division:

“The recruitment of women by ISIS is much more than we’ve ever seen by a terrorist organization. We have seen everything from a female fighter — dedicated groups of women fighters — and those who have come over to support foreign fighters by marrying them.”

Steinbach went on to say that the Bureau has seen teenagers as young as 13 in foreign countries, and 15 in the U.S., successfully influenced by Islamic State recruiters.

According to detailed case study published in December by the SITE Intelligence Group, ISIS is using female recruiters to prey on young women, has established a pipeline to assist Western women in traveling to Syria to contribute to the formation of their new society, and these online networks have been expanding in prominence and sophistication since the summer of 2014, suggesting that the Islamic State has already been successful in recruiting foreign women to leave their lives in the West, and are looking to build upon this strength.

NOT JUST N. AMERICA

And this threat is not just limited to N. America. According to Giles de Kerchove, the European Union’s counterterrorism coordinator, social media plays a “huge role” in recruiting.

There have already been numerous cases of U.S. teens successfully radicalized, some of whom boarded planes to fly to the Middle East, and others, such as Shannon Conley of Arvada, Colorado, a Muslim convert who was arrested April 8 at Denver International Airport after telling FBI agents she was traveling to Syria to use her American military training from the U.S. Army Explorers program to aid Islamic militants waging jihad even though she knew that it was illegal. She told investigators, “Legitimate targets of attack” included U.S. military bases, government employees and public officials.”

Conley planned to marry a Tunisian man fighting in Syria whom she met online and communicated with via Skype. Instead, she is now serving a 4 year stretch in federal prison after being convicted of lending material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

WOMEN OF THE ISLAMIC STATE
A Manifesto on Women by the Al-Khanssaa Brigade

A semi-official manifesto on women, believed to be the first of its kind, has been published by the al-Khanssaa Brigade, an all-female militia set up by Islamic State. Translated into English by the London-based counter-extremism thinktank Quilliam Foundation, the document outlines women’s rights and what is expected of them living under their rule.

According to an introductory statement by the translator, the document “gives a lengthy rebuttal of “Western civilisation” and universal human rights such as gender equality. It allows us to look past that which is banded about on social media by Western supporters of IS, enabling us to get into the mind-set of the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of women who willingly join its ranks.”

It is important for readers to understand that since the formal declaration of the establishment of the Islamic State, last summer, complex, highly effective recruiting campaigns have been undertaken globally in a genuine effort at nation building. Make no mistake, while western media outlets portray the Islamic State as being comprised of a disparate collection of 30-40,000 unsophisticated, ragtag male fighters, the reality is very different. And one of the areas within which they excel is their global recruiting efforts which are growing in scope and sophistication.

AN APPEAL TO PARENTS

AlertsUSA urges parents of teens, both boys and girls, to get involved with their children’s social media activity. Just as you monitor the physical location of your children, the simple reality is that social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Ask.fm, WhatsApp, Instagram and many others offer a multitude of evil influences, of which militant Islam propaganda specifically is just one. While it may seem like a daunting, impossible task, the dangers are far too great, and the ramification too far reaching, to simply blow it off and to trust the judgment of your children. They simply do not have the perspective, worldview and awareness necessary. Just as you would be unlikely to allow your teenage son or daughter to wander the streets of urban America after dark, it is imperative that you extend these protective efforts to their online presence. AlertsUSA would not be covering the topic, nor would the FBI be speaking up, unless the threat was form idable, and growing.

SecState Warns Russia on Ukraine,
NATO to Deploy 30,000 Troops in Eastern Europe
Feb 07, 2015

On Feb 5, 2015, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:
2/5 – Tensions incr in Europe. SecState warns Russia must withdraw heavy weapons & troops from Ukraine. Pub opinion being shaped for anncmt of lethal military aid.

What You Need To Know
On Tues AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices of fresh warnings issued by Secretary of State John Kerry to Russia over their growing military involvement in Eastern Ukraine. Kerry warned that the Obama administration cannot ignore the latest Russian military thrust into the country's east.

"We live in a modern world of great technology. Everybody understands the ability to see things from high altitudes, whether it’s in space or lower. And the fact is, we have been tracing and we have seen exactly what they’re bringing over, when and how, and there’s no question about tanks flowing, rocket systems being transported, convoys of goods carrying people, weapons, and other instruments of battle."

“We cannot close our eyes to the tanks that are crossing the border coming into Ukraine. We cannot close our eyes to Russian soldiers in unmarked uniforms coming across the border and leading troops into battle.”

SENATE CALLS FOR ARMING UKRAINE

Concurrent to Secretary Kerry's remarks in Ukraine, a bipartisan group of 12 senators, all members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, called on President Obama to provide lethal aid to Ukraine. The White House (again) says the President is "considering" the move.

We remind readers that given the nature of the matter at hand, when you hear that the President of the United States is considering doing anything along the lines of sending weapons, or troops, to assist a foreign nation, it invariably means that the decision has already been made. Normally such deliberations and planning are carried out in the highest levels of secrecy.

On Thursday of this week, NATO Supreme Allied Command U.S. Air Force General Phillip Breedlove warned that any move to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons must take into account any possible angry reaction from Russia.

NATO TO DEPLOY 30,000 TROOPS IN E. EUROPE

Also this week, NATO defense ministers met in Brussels on Thursday during which they announced a significant military expansion in the Eastern-most region of the alliance and what NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg calls “the biggest reinforcement of our collective defense since the end of the Cold War”. The move, known as Adaptation Measures, increases the NATO Response Force size from 13,000 troops to 30,000, or a full division, with elements spread between 6 bases located across Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in order to provide a visible and persistent NATO presence in these countries and to dissuade further Russian aggression in the region.

Additionally, another measure announced is the formation of a Very High Readiness Joint Task Force known as the Spearhead Force, a highly trained brigade of land forces numbering around 5,000. According to NATO Secretary Stoltenberg, the Spearhead Force "will be supported by air, sea and special operations forces. The lead element of this land brigade will be ready to move within as little as 48 hours, with the rest moving within a week.” Two brigades will back up the Spearhead Force as a rapid reinforcement capability in case of a major crisis.

RUSSIA PREVIOUSLY WARNED AGAINST SUCH A MOVE

Readers are reminded that late last year, Russia warned NATO against establishing a permanent military presence in Eastern Europe, saying it would view such a move as a threat. According to Mikhail Popov, deputy director of Russia's national security council, "The fact that the military infrastructure of NATO member states is getting closer to our borders, including via enlargement, will preserve its place as one of the external threats for the Russian Federation."

This statement was made when NATO was originally moving towards stationing just 5000 troops in eastern alliance member countries. Considering that NATO has announced this force would expand to 30,000, we await Russia's public response, though their military is already in motion. Earlier this week, Russia's Defense Ministry announced that the Kremlin has deployed Topol and Yars ICBM missile launchers on combat patrol in 6 Russian regions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed the right to intervene on behalf of Russian speakers if Moscow believes their rights are under threat. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – all former Soviet republics that are now NATO members – have significant Russian minorities.

AlertsUSA continues to close monitor developments in this region and will immediately notify service subscribers of major changes in the overall threat picture as it applies to U.S. citizens and interests, as events warrant.

Crusades-vs-Jihad – ALLOW IMAGES

Get Your Facts Straight, Mr. President !
Feb 07, 2015
What You Need To Know
At the National Prayer Breakfast this week, President Obama told attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by “Christians” as well. Speaking on the tension between the compassionate and murderous undertaken in the name of religion, President Obama stated the following:

“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

For the President to draw a moral equivalence between modern Islamic jihad and the Crusades is outrageous on many levels, not the least of which is the increased justification his words have given the Islamic State’s ongoing atrocities.

In the short but powerful video above, Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam lays out the facts.
