Milwaukee CNG filling station explosion

Yesterday there were multiple explosions at a city-owned CNG filling station in Milwaukee. Uses ANGI equipment to fill City owned CNG vehicles (similar or identical to what XNG uses in Forest Lake PA). 

Is there a pipeline which feeds the filling station? Or is it a "Daughter Station" like what XNG delivers to?

7-24-2017: Happy Anniversary! ("Russian Hacking" Myth)


(Email exchange on Sustainable Otsego)

Richard, can you please Fact Check you assertion that "of course they [Russia] hacked the election"? Original sources please.

I have followed this story like an idiot savant for the last 11.5 months. I will tell you, I know of NO SUCH EVIDENCE. 

However, there is a SHIT TON of evidence that the DNC used FRAUD to kneecap Bernie, and MADE UP, INVENTED, & Falsified the "Russian Hacking!!!" story (and variations) as a DIVERSION and PSYOP to get our attention away from Wikileaks, DCleaks, Gucciffer 2.0, and Seth Rich. 

But YOU'RE IN LUCK TODAY!!!!
I have a special treat 4 You! 

Your idiot friend (ME!) meticulously scoured the internet to find the ORIGINAL SOURCE of the "Russian Hacking" myth! (which morphed into Russian Collusion) 

Here it is!!!!

Please listen very carefully to the exchange. What was the Question Jake Tapper ask Robbie Mook, to which his response was "Russian Hacking!"


Very interesting.

PS: Monday July 24th will be the One Year Anniversary of the Russian Hacking Myth. 

We should all get together and eat Borscht and drink shots of Smirnov or something!

Yeah. Here's what happened

1) Dems invent "Russian Hacking" to deflect from HRCs weakness exposed by Wikileaks, including her own Russia Connection (Uranium One) July 2016.

2) At some point, lack of evidence causes Dems and MSM to morph "Russian Hacking" into "Russian Collusion"

3) CIA-controlled corporate media repeat "RUSSIAN HACKING!" then "Russian Collusion!" for nearly ONE SOLID YEAR!

4) After 11.5 months of digging, MSM "journalists" finally find something that sticks. 

Give me a break. 

Normally, a criminal investigation or a journalist BEGINS WITH EVIDENCE and then tries to formulate the narrative of the crime.

With this story, we BEGAN With The Narrative, and then dug for ONE YEAR to find evidence.

Am I the only one who finds this ODD?

Bill,

Is the article below a complete sham? A piece of propaganda?

It claims that the lawyer Trump Jr. met with was involved in defending Russian mafiosi who evidently had the protection of the Russian state. The same lawyer was lobbying for the lifting of the Magnitsky Act, a set of sanctions imposed in response to the death of another lawyer (Magnitsky) who was investigating tax fraud involving Russian tax officials.

If the article has its facts straight, there's very strong circumstantial evidence that the Trump campaign was indeed colluding with Russian intelligence and/or mafiosi.


You also seem to be strongly implying (though not explicitly stating) that Seth Rich was murdered as part of a Clinton and/or DNC plot.

For fuck's sake, even Fox News has recanted that.

If you're beating that horse, it's hard to take you seriously.

It's possible for Democrats to be bad and for Russia to have been malignantly involved in our election.

It's true that the U.S. has meddled in other countries' elections in the past. I still don't want the Russian government meddling in ours.

Russia's current government is a nightmare on steroids.I have a colleague from Russia. She would like to go back and visit family, but she's not confident that she'd be able to leave again.

Is she part of the DNC's propaganda machine?

If making your case against the D's requires exculpating the Russians, you're going to have a really hard time making your case.

Richard, you are entitled to your opinion.
As I do, mine.

The FACTS are, there is ZERO EVIDENCE to suggest that Russia has "hacked the election" or "colluded with Trump".

There is a SHIT TON of evidence which proves that
a) Hillary Clinton and her minions used FRAUD to hack the DNC'2016
b) She is an extremely flawed candidate, a career criminal with a 30 year rapsheet, under multiple felony FBI investigations, and she made many mistakes in her campaign.
c) the Democratic Party has a 40 year history of betraying the American People
d) Obama was really awful. I have a BIG LIST of Obama Crimes. The Democratic Party is at it's lowest membership levels since the 1920s. People are SICK of being lied to, and neoliberal abuses. The party lost over 1,000 seats under Obama.

Here is my opinion, since you shared yours:

Blaming Trump's presidency on Russia --(with ZERO facts to substantiate it)-- while IGNORING all these other facts.... is a kind of EPIC denial which is of such a staggering proportion, it's hard for me to put words to it, or imagine that anyone who utters it really believes their own words.
My advice to Democrats: LOOK DEEP INSIDE YOURSELF
and look at what actions (or inactions) YOU YOURSELF have made
(e.g., voting for corporate candidates year after year after year who are PRO WAR and PRO FRACKING and for everything you are against)
which have contributed to this crisis.
Try to find SOME MORAL CODE--
I don't care what, YOU PICK,
for me it's WAR and GENOCIDE,
which is a "line too dear to cross",
where you would NEVER, EVER vote for any candidate
who supports these crimes.

The first steps in solving this problem is
1) introspection / reflection
2) Values Quest ("what do I stand for?")
3) Try to have some f*ing moral integrity in your own life.
4) Stop blaming others and pointing fingers.

If you Democrats keep digging in like this,
then I fear ALL HOPE IS LOST.

Thanks,
BH

Do you mean Russia has a worse reputation for hacking foreign elections than the United States?



(and infrastructure) like in Ukraine & Estonia, so they tend to fit the m.o. - which unfortunately makes them a convenient scapegoat!

There has NEVER been any evidence of any "Russian Hacking" or "Collusion". All the evidence has suggested this story was concocted as a result of the Wikileaks dumps which showed the corruption inside the DNC, Clinton Foundation, and HRC campaign. 

I tracked down the FIRST occurrence of this Russian Hacking myth. It was an interview with Robbie Mook in July 2016.

July 10, Seth Rich was murdered. July 22, Wikileaks releases the DNC emails. July 24, Exactly two weeks later after Seth Rich's murder and two days after the Wikileaks dump, Robby Mook started the "Russian Hacking" story.

Full Timeline of "Russian Hacking" story, in context:

• Feb 11, 2015: John Podesta -- "I'm definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it."
(....)

• Jun 10, 2016: Obama meets w/Bernie, asks him to quit

• Jun 17, 2016: Despite the fact that Neither Dem Candidate had enough pledged delegates for the nomination, and BOTH candidates needed the unpledged SuperDelegates, Cenk Uyger goes on Larry King and tells Bernie to quit. 

• Jun 30, 2016:  Bill Clinton meets with Atty Gen. Loretta Lynch. (Likely conversation, "I recommend you don't prosecute Hillary".)

• July 5, 2016: FBI Comey, "no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case" against Clinton for storing classified information on a private server

• July 10, 2016: Seth Rich Murdered

• July 22, 2016: DNC Wikileaks Released

• July 24, 2016: Clinton Campaign Mgr Robby Mook hatches "Russian Hacking" story on ABC "This Week"

• July 24-25, 2016: NYT, WaPo, CNN, MSNBC all explode and saturate on "Russian Hacking" (which remains 10 months later. -- Isn't it bat-shit bonkers to pursue a story for 10 months with zero evidence?)

• July 25-28: DNC Philly, Bernie concedes, endorses HRC

One year later, the story still persists with ZERO evidence!!! 

As you can see, "Russian Hacking" dominated the news, and both Seth Rich and the DNC Wikileaks stories were displaced and faded from view quickly. This was the plan. Propaganda works!!

CRAZY - USDA’s permit for the world’s first open-air trials of the Genetically Engineered (GE) Diamondback moth to be released in Geneva, NY.




For Immediate Release Media Contact: Amy Blum PR

NOFA-NY DENOUNCES USDA PERMIT TO RELEASE GENETICALLY ENGINEERED MOTHS IN GENEVA, NY

Farmington, NY — The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY) todaydenounced the USDA's permit for the world's first open-air trials of the Genetically Engineered (GE) Diamondback moth to be released in Geneva, NY. This announcement came concurrently with the availability of a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for the field release of the GE Diamondback moths. NOFA-NY considers the Environmental Assessment lacking comprehensive health and environmental details.

"NOFA-NY considers the release of a novel genetically engineered organism to be a major activity with potentially significant and heretofore unknown health and environmental effects," said NOFA-NY Policy Advisor Liana Hoodes. "It is now up to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to ensure the safety of its citizens before granting the necessary state permit. We call on the NYS DEC to require a full environmental impact statement and public hearings during a complete review under State Environmental Quality Review Act."

Hoodes goes on to say, "most of the USDA's environmental assessment confines its review to the general impacts of the new technology, yet neglects to adequately assess the potential impacts of the trials themselves on farms and residences near the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, NY and across the state." 

NOFA-NY is concerned that the owner of this technology (originally, Oxitec UK – now Intrexon)never completed a comprehensive, independent health, safety, and environmental review required by international protocols prior to bringing this organism to the United States.

The Diamondback moth is a pest to brassica plants worldwide. The purpose of this new GE insect would be to reduce pest populations of Diamondback moths through engineering a new female lethality trait into male GE moths. Thousands of these males mate with wild females who produce eggs that are laid on the brassica, then the females die. The GE males continue the cycle and suppress the numbers of wild Diamondback moths. 

Before such an open air release can happen, Cornell University must apply to the New York State DEC for a permit. Typically, Cornell research permits receive cursory review by the Department, but because this is the first world-wide release of a new insect, NOFA-NY believes in the strongest terms that this action should trigger a full environmental review under the State Environmental Quality Review Act. Such review must include a public hearing to determine the contents of a Full Environmental Impact Statement.  

Both Cornell University and the technology owner Intrexon must fulfill their responsibilities to the citizens of the State for full disclosure of potential impacts prior to releasing such an organism into our air. Without a full environmental review, NOFA-NY believes this experiment must be stopped.

See NOFA-NY's requests to NYS DEC (2) for full environmental review: http://bit.ly/2tR2xU4

XNG Manheim files repository (#BombTrucks)

Hi,

For those interested in the XNG #BombTrucks operation in Manheim, we've started a document collection of files on the project:

... or ...

This space was generously donated by Barbara Arrindell of Damascus Citizens for Sustainability.

So far there are these folders;
1: Documents collected by Keith Schue from 2014
2: Documents collected by Protect Manheim from 2014
3: Protect Manheim videos
4: My recent FOIL to DEC
5: Otsego 2000 letter to AG Schneiderman w/attachments

The docs from Protect Manheim are all individual image files. Ideally, these should all be image-processed (cropped, contrast, OCR, compiled into a large PDF). All I have done so far is to rotate to fix the orientation.

But putting this all out there now so people can start reviewing.

I have another large FOIL which should be going up soon. Hope to receive it in a week or so.

It would be helpful for more eyes on this, so if you can, make a local copy of these files (may want to skip the video files).

There are are some specific things we are looking for, so if you are so inclined, email me off list and I'll tell you what to watch for.

Or just poke around yourself and see what you can find!

Thanks,
BH

AMAZING Fenton #BombTrucks Wrapup!

There were probably 6 people who came up to me tonight and said, "Are you Bill Huston?" or, "Are you the guy who spoke at the school board meeting?" I guess my speech made an impression. 

I just winged it. I had just a few bullet points, nothing formally prepared. People said they thought I was very knowledgeable, and helped them understand about the proposed Town of Fenton #BombTrucks facility. That made me feel good ;)

The other thing is, and I've learned this from my good friend Craig Stevens is that "Everything they say is wrong. If their lips are moving, they're lying."

And if you lie once, you have to keep on lying forever, to cover for the first lie, and the cover-up lie, etc. It's unsustainable! 

Once you learn this and train your mind to it, you can use anything they say against them. If they let you in to the meeting, you catch them in 1,000 lies, and use it.

If they bar you from the meeting, and pay a dozen (off duty?) Sheriff's driving official vehicles(*) running security, you videotape that and make them look like scared fools (that's what they are!)

Anything they do, or say, you can use against them. It's kinda Environmental Ju Jitsu. 

(*) BTW, WTF! A few times tonight, I found myself surrounded by 3-4 cops w/fingers on their Tazers. No shit. There were at least THREE published accounts that this was going to be a "open public meeting". 1: Clifford Crouch, 2: posted at the Town Offices, 3: printed in the Press and Sun, and 4: in their own literature. "Open Meeting, public!!"

Their excuses were all over the place. It was invite only. I needed a press pass. They were very concerned about fire codes.

Fire code my ass. The room was 1/2 empty.
BTW, their expert there tonight --which they refused me access to, Chris Christopoulos-- has stated in his presentations that THERE ARE NO National Fire Protection Association NFPA codes for these BombTrucks!!! 

I have been doing independent media in various forms (public access TV, radio, blogging/research, print) in Binghamton area for 18 years. That's IMO F-ing Street CRED to be able to call myself PRESS.  I am the media. I have professional gear. I know what I'm doing technically and I do original research. And "NG Advantage" paid local cops to threaten me with arrest at several points tonight.

So I know Craig would tell me: Bill, just look at them. They are running scared, bro! Holding secret meetings, closed to the press and impacted residents. They are scared shirtless.

The Brass BALLS award of the night goes to Jeff Platsky for getting the dude to say "Bomb Trucks". Holy crap that's excellent.  

I know from personal experience that getting an Article 78 done in 60 days is challenging. Getting TWO in ~2 weeks is a fucking miracle!! I've only read one of two complaints, and it was excellent! 

And now a TRO? Some kind of injunction. 
STOP WORK NOW! Ker-POW! 

That's how we roll in NY, baby. 
Several great victories tonight. 

Fenton/CV are on a roll!!

So happy to see this Fenton resistance to be happening so organically.

Adrian-- Do you *REALLY* want to Resist Trump?



Note: This is a response to Adrian Kuzminski, moderator of Sustainable Otsego, to an email he sent out soliciting people to come to a "Resist Trump" event. -- BH

Thanks Adrian.

Now, do you REALLY want to resist the Trump agenda? Or do you want to REPEAT THE SAME FAILED STRATEGIES which brought us Trump?

Then READ THIS and I will explain how these "Resist Trump" groups (and there are dozens) are being organized by the SAME PEOPLE who gave us Trump to being with!

I just want to point out that ANY group which is (Trump) "Resistance" focused, (and here is a big list: https://www.risestronger.org/resist ) are

DEMOCRATIC PARTY HERDING Organizations

Here's a list of a bunch of them. There could be hundreds!



If you've lived in NY, you will no doubt be familiar with how Citizen Action works with Working Families Party.
  • Citizen Action works to PUSH the Democratic Party Policy agenda DOWN TO local groups. This is just the OPPOSITE of how true grassroots activism should work. I started going to Citizen Action meetings around the time I first moved to Binghamton (early 2000s) and learned early on that THEY DO NOT LISTEN to any policy objectives of locals. It is 100% totally TOP DOWN, coming from... ??? (who knows?)
  • Working Families Party is a SCAM, a RACKET called "Electoral Fusion" or "Cross Ballot Endorsement". It is ILLEGAL in 42 states:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_fusion#United_States

    The entire function of WFP and all Fusion parties (Liberal Party, Right to Life Party, Conservative Party, etc) is to

    a) Give the corporate candidate MORE BALLOT LINES
    b) Push 3rd party candidates to the margins, literally
    c) Capture the "Protest Vote" which might go to a Socialist, Green, or Libertarian, and give it to the corporate candidate.

To join an Indivisible group, you must PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE to their "resist Trump" strategy. They DO NOT propose a legislative agenda based on positive, shared values!
They even state in their booklet:

We recommend two guiding principles:

»» Donald Trump's agenda will take America backwards, and it must be stopped.

»» To work together to achieve this goal, we must model the values
of inclusion, tolerance, and fairness.

As discussed in the second chapter, we strongly recommend focusing on defense against the Trump agenda rather than developing an entire alternative policy agenda.

Defining a proactive agenda is time-intensive, divisive, and, quite frankly, a distraction, since there is zero chance that we as progressives will get to put our agenda into action at the federal level in the next four years.

You DO know that the primary reasons we have Trump are:
  1. 8 years of Toxic Neoliberalism under Barack Obama
    • Recall: Democratic Party is WIPED OUT from coast to coast
    • Lost 900+ state legislature seats, 12 governors, 69 House seats, 13 Senate seats under Obama
    • See complete list of OBAMA CRIMES below
  2. 8 years of Neoliberalism under Bill Clinton
If you doubt this, here are some resources to jog your memory:
  • She is a Career Criminal with a 30 year rap sheet
  • Queen of Fracking
  • Queen of WalMart
  • Queen of Wall St. 
  • Clinton Foundation
  • 3 Congressional/FBI investigations
    (1: Libya, 2: Insecure/Offsite Email Server,  3: Clinton Foundation) 
  • Clinton Body Count
  • A Really Bad liar 
  • Wikileaks!!
  • Cheated Bernie
  • Does not connect with ordinary people
  • Every time she speaks in public, her poll numbers go down
  • ....
She also FAILED TO PROMOTE ANY AGENDA based on positive, shared values, like Bernie was doing. She was (her camp were) only ATTACKING TRUMP.


So now Indivisible, and all these other Democratic Party Herding Organizations are REPEATING THE SAME FAILED STRATEGY which cost Clinton the Election!!!

The Indivisible / Working Families Party / MoveOn (etc) scam in a nutshell:
  1. Attack Trump 24x7 (even if he does something right! D'oh!)
  2. FAIL to produce a progressive/popular agenda based on positive shared values, and
  3. Convince people that YOU MUST only work within the confines of the SAME FAILED, & WIPED OUT Democratic Party which created this crisis.
Hey I know what let's do! Let's take over the Democratic Party, and move it to the left!! Only one problem: "That shit don't work!" (David Cobb)

And it has not worked for FORTY YEARS!TinyURL.com/DavidCobbThatShitDontWork



Jesus H. Christ, Friends...
Don't you think it's time to TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT?

Dear Adrian, Antoinette and Dennis, 
I am forwarding an invitation to an Activist Summit in Hudson. I hope you will be able to participate. Please forward to anyone you think would be interested. 
Pam 

Dear Fellow Activists and Friends of Democracy,

If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.

As a leader in the Resistance Movement, you are invited to join us for a day of education, organization, collaboration and resistance training on July, 8, 2017 at the beautiful Upjohn Mansion/Hudson Lodge, located at 601 Union St., Hudson, NY. It will be a unique gathering of activists, trainers and teachers from CD19 as well as many supporters from neighboring Blue Districts and promises to be a full and rich day. 

Linked is a registration form that includes a brief outline for the day and also your lunch preference, which is included in your registration fee. Filling this out as soon as possible will help us to prepare a well organized and effective event. This is an all volunteer effort and your cooperation and speedy response will be tremendously helpful and appreciated.

If you are able to sponsor another activist for whom the fee is a barrier, please indicate that on the registration form.
If the $35 fee is a barrier for attendance, please contact me.

We will be creating an introductory video of the great work that is happening all over CD19 to start the day, if your group would like to participate in that via Skype or Face Time, please also indicate that on the registration form.

Our email list is is not complete. Please share this with other activists that you think would be helpful.

We are strongly recommending that all participants read On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.


Keep the faith - now more than ever.
Please join us!
Best,

Gianni Ortiz
Indivisible CD19 NY
Educate. Organize. Resist.

Apologies if you receive this more than once, we have collated a number of lists, a living, changing document which we will be happy to collaborate with other organizations to perfect and then share (SPOILER ALERT - that's part of a break out!).

Please act now!



Friends,

Tony Ingraffea and others have brought forth the issues with CCPA and have contributed to the creation of an effective climate action bill. This is what we need to do. Thanks to Susan Multer and Suzannah Glidden for forwarding the action we must take.
Please take a few moments right now to do the following....

PLEASE phone FIRST THING_**_Wednesday morning and throughout the day to 
strongly OPPOSE the flawed Climate and Community Protection Act 
A.8270A/S.6617A (CCPA).**Urge them not to bring it to a vote or pass it. 
Despite a few revisions, many of the technical flaws remain and the bill 
is not equipped to meet its goals. That's why it sets us back in our 
effort to fight climate change.

Sen. John Flanagan 518-455-2071

Sen. Jeff Klein 518-455-3595

Sen. Tony Avella 518-455-2210 

Please blast this call-in request to all your contacts to help!

There's a better climate bill, NYS Climate Responsibility Act.  Tell 
legislators to vote NO on CCPA and instead vote for responsible climate 
legislation next year.

Thank you!

Advocates for Responsible Climate Action (ARCA)

Suzannah Glidden, Founding member
