Remembering 3/11

Our life in this world –
to what shall I compare it?
Its like an echo
resounding through the mountains
and off into the empty sky.

The lessons learned related to policy, strategy, operations and tactics emerging from the March 11, 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear emergency are extensive. But somehow the more energy I spend trying to capture them, the more elusive they become. There is beauty, there is its opposite, each is real, each will pass.

What did the Japanese know and when did they know it about the issues raised by the Sendai Earthquake and Tsunami?

And the same for the USA?

We do know it impacted the Earth’s rotation, tilt, and moved Japan east!

Bill: While I am clearly not in an analytical mood, since you asked: The Asahi Shimbun — sometimes called Japan’s newspaper of record — maintains an English-language collection of its stories related to 3/11 at http://ajw.asahi.com/category/0311disaster/.

Please note the collection is presented in categories: Fukushima nuclear crisis, Life and Death, Quake and Tsunami, Recovery, Analysis and Opinion

I just wanted to share a new piece of mine that was published in The Journal of Physical Security. It is entitled The Japan Earthquake and Tsunami-Their Implications for the U.S. I also provided a statement on this topic on February 28 to the Advisory Committee of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program. The article is at http://jps.anl.gov and the statement is posted at http://GordonHumankind.com . Click on the relevant item in the menu on the top of the home page. I recommended in the statement that a task force be formed to follow up on the information about the vulnerability of nuclear power plants in seismically active ares in the US. I hope you find it of interest.

Well, certainly we do know that the earthquake did affect rotation, tilt and Japan moving a bit east, however it isn’t this natural event which concerns me, but the failure of men everywhere to be in awe at what God has created and understanding that here is so much more to Life and it is so unfortunate that the Blessings and the meanings of Life and how to live Life and while we have choices, God encourages us to choose Life and obey some rules about it along the way (Deuteronomy 30:19), yet this selfish and lust for power and greed depicted in such dastardly and dysfunctional mannerisms versus the glorious purpose of all God’s children is so easily dismissed…There is no need for a look beyond our own sovereign boundaries or the government we “entrust” which spews such willing and blatant lie whether at the “Benghazi Massacre” where four brave Patriots were allowed to be slaughtered so….and so many lies, lies and divisive and deceitful ways by this WH, by State and Ms. Hillary and DHS where Madame Secretary must resign for God is witness and this permitting known criminals under her watch to be let free to roam among the good People… reminds me of John 8:44 and how Satan is firmly entrenched where eight month babies are slaughtered by this “Chicago city street slicker” and all his perverse ways and those of this “Chicago-Hollywood-Washington Express” where not only should we read: John 8:44 – “‘He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” and while this WH and its administration and our Congressional members on bot sides of the aisle can best be described as in (verse 5) of Isaiah” The hole head is sick and whole heart faint” – We who understand and care much for the Judeo-Christian basis for a strong America along with its arsenal to protect against so many who seek our demise from outside to within, Jesus’ words in stating that good things will come from our mouths if we take charge of our lives and control what goes in and in fact, Paul taught us in Philippians 4:8: “Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these thins.”

To Barry Obama and his manipulative and deceitful ways…to “smug-smiled Pelosi and to the first lady moving her hips on late night television portraying such elegance and poise and to DHS Madame Secretary who like Ms. Hillary is empty in her words with the buck stopping with those placed in charge, yet opening the prosecuted criminal into our streets and looking the other way….arresting some man for some “flicK” yet arresting no one for the outright slaughter of our brave men at the “Benghazi Massacre” for instance…we are indeed reminded in readings here at HLSWatch.com that when Jesus said that every tree is known by the fruit it produces, “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” Read: Matthew 12:34-35.

While Japan moves a bit east caused by natural disaster, Japan is quickly moving without its own self knowing to the east and to embrace China where a stronger economy will take shape and the west fails in its dysfunctional ways with no repentance, a lack of understanding of truth and despite history otherwise, and as “the whole head is sick and the whole heart faint here as this Obama flag was unfurled in all its socialist and marxist colors while our good ‘ol Glory burned on the streets of the Middle East….

To the many fellow good and Blessed American friends and neighbors, the most charitable people of the world…kindly read James 1:14-15: A true Christian’s struggle against sin starts in the mind and we are obligated as citizens to uphold our Constitution and as we go along to understand that We as a good People here on “Main Street USA” obviously besieged from within, We have to constantly guard against carnal reasoning and lustful impulses, not allowing those invading thoughts and temptations to gain a foothold in the mind. Surely anyone sitting in the pews for 20 and more years listing to the divisive rhetorical orations of the Rev Wright must truly attack such negative thoughts as proclaimed from this tainted pulpit and from Romans 12:21 read and understand: “Overcome the evil by replacing it with good…”

For each and everyone of us as lawful citizens and with pledge to God and to our wonderful and beloved Republic and good ‘ol Glory…and in honor of those left behind and watched and left to be slaughtered so at the “Benghazi Massacre” as just one instance and with poverty skyrocketing and a budget deficit reaching beyond our universe and no one to be seen to fix it, yet a WH seeking to assure that its pledge to Hussein Obama and Bill Ayers and so many other scoundrels and their socialist and marxist doctrine in anti-colonialism and anti Christianity and anti-“Zionist” and this Barry Obama who dares to close the doors to Our White House…to cast our precious children from Our White House, so intent only to teach of past slavery and to be scolded so by such a perverted individual so willing to lie from his tongue, a half white man who has deceived so many and who, unless arrested for breach of faith, treason and impeached and imprisoned, well, folks, witness the end of America for James madison in 1785 said it clearly:

“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be under the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. But, in reality it will be an Enemy from within” –

Bill O’Reilly, another Boston native says it best: We as a nation are at great peril – and you, the faint, who know that such dastardly acts as we see encouraged by this Barry Obama and his groupies, well, now as an elder, end time draws near, however to those who have an abundance of Life and years ahead, hold your muskets high – for all lawful purpose – and read and understand the words of samuel Adams in 1775:

“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can they be easily subdued, when knowledge is wide spread and Virtue is preserved. on the Contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without Aid of foreign invaders.” –

God Bless America! As Germany becomes strengthened in her ways once again as in history past, Germany and its eventual ten nations will raise its sword and shortly, it is apparent the shock and awe of man’s worst nightmares will heighten the skies as War looms ahead and while this “Chicago city street slicker” and nothing more in his perverted and limited perspectives who banished the bust of Winston Churchill back to ten Downing Street as his first act when entering the White House…well, Winston Churchill and any other great leader are gone and unless you as good and kind and Christian Americans, strong in your numbers and strong in your heart with readiness to strike down at the polls any such notion otherwise of an America who has much to continue to contribute to and in spreading the good words and practices of a Judeo-Christian nation…. well, Germany and the “KGB Putinites” and the “Brutes of Tehran” as I refer to these other thugs outside of Chicago, well, War and much conflagration will consume mankind in every way….

God Bless us! Open your eyes and your hearts, for we are being deceived and the strategy of this evil man who walketh among us, well, wake up for he chooses to subvert the values of our wonderful nation you should admonish all as the White House doors to our children have been closed and far worse calamity awaits us as more and more are scorched by this ever imposing government which seeks to – enslave the populace to poverty – where just in New York under the guise of this New York Mayor who seeks to control with his billions, poverty up some 61%, millions on food stamps and growing for one sole purpose, to elect Barry Obama for a third term in office despite the laws of the land which are so easily forsaken anyways…While the stock market reaches its lofty ways only temporarily and “Smug-smiled Pelosi” and Uncle Johnny Kerry and others have millions and millions of fiat US treasury notes on their coffers…the road ahead where families are under siege, 40%+ of babies born of unwed parents and so on…it is You who must lead for the growing dependence on government for the sole purpose of hoodwinking our values and American way of Life is led by the evil ways of Barry Obama and so many of those who have fooled you who are evidently ignorant or to bliss in your dysfunctional ways to understand what is taking shape and an America which sees a deficit assures a failed nation and a world thereafter of chaos and calamity where no DHS or other planning will have any value….

God Bless us all! Stand forthright with those brave who were watched from the WH perch and left behind, beaten and killed with no arrests and a man who sits in prison for some “flick” few if anyone knew about, yet used as a scapegoat….

We are in peril! God Bless America!
