London Bridge Attack Drill Is Falling Down

Terrorist’s London Bridge Attack Drill Is Falling Down


After skimming many articles about the United Kingdom’s ‘Bomb Vested Terrorist London Bridge Attack’ for days. This article caught my eye and interest, ‘Hero Bystanders Took Down the London Bridge Attacker’. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2019/11/29/hero-bystanders-took-down-london-bridge-attacker-theyre-not-first-fight-back/

While reading, this quote finally pierced my skull, ‘In the video, other members of the public can be seen surrounding the suspect and seemingly restrain him.’

Indeed, Usman Kahn, was pinned to the ground arms outstretched by many people. So this quote seemed quite unusual, for an attacker that was completely restrained, ‘The attacker was shot dead by police.’

Police pulled the brave defenders off of the pinned attacker to the extent that Usman Kahn was then completely free? Then the police shot him to death?

Those actions are completely insane procedure on several levels.

Bomb vests have to be detonated by some type of trigger. No one in their sane mind is or should allow a bomber’s hands to be free once restrained. That would allow the bomber to detonate the bomb.

The next insane act is shooting someone in a bomb vest. Bullets will make TNT, and gunpowder bomb vests detonate if the bomb is hit.

Government and its minions are stupid, corrupt, and murderous. But, they are not completely insane.

Something smells like false flags, black ops, and PSYOPS.

While searching the internet, London Bridge attacker gold is struck.


Enter Jerry, Acadian Sheperd, BitChute, and the extremely well documented, ‘London Bridge Attack 100% False Flag’. https://www.bitchute.com/video/mqacF5QPuCdQ/

Amazingly, it’s even got a little ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ proof.

Physicist Heinz Pommer Validates Ed Ward MD’s Proven WTC Nukes


PhD, Physicist, Doctor Heinz Pommer Brilliantly Explains His Advanced Physics Prowls in a 111 slide power point presentation: “Power Source(s) of the 9/11 Event”. Or, as I call it, “150 kt Neutron Nukes Used in the WTC Nuclear Demolition”. https://www.911history.de/pdfs/9II_excerpt_London.pdf

Also saved on my site: Pommer’s 9/11 Event Slides

There are many more slides of the molten bedrock in Pommer’s 2018 WTC slides. He also explains basic and advanced physics used in his presentation.

His presentation validates the 7 main points of “Proven 9/11 Nukes” https://edwardmd.wordpress.com/2010/09/06/proven-9-11-nukes-us-government-involvement/ , now 8 main points of “Massive Radiation in WTC Demolition and Molten Bedrock by Ed Ward MD”. https://edwardmd.org/2019/09/26/massive-radiation-in-world-trade-center-demolition-and-molten-bedrock-by-ed-ward-md/ .

Some points are directly addressed and expanded upon, the others are indirectly validated by the physics facts of 150 kiloton neutron nuclear demolitions.

Dr. Pommer’s prequel to ‘The 911 Event”, “9/11, Nuclear Weapons, and Secret Societies” is also worth a visit. https://resistance71.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/911_history_en.pdf

Word on the street is that Dr. Pommer will be updating his WTC data with more fascinating physics and gif graphics.

Three of the molten bedrock pictures were exposed and saved by “Chris Spivey” in his excellent 2014 article, or would be minus the pages of Ground Zero definitions,  “Ground Zero – Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Center”. http://chrisspivey.org/ground-zero-nuclear-demolition-of-the-world-trade-center/  Chris and his crew at http://chrisspivey.org/ did an excellent job with many references and saved videos and pictures. There are many more well researched articles on his site.



The molten bedrock pictures were absolutely not available when I wrote my three main 2005 to 2008 articles on nukes in the WTC.  The first I’ve found surfaced in 2014 (Spivey), with the next and larger batch of molten bedrock pics in 2018 (Pommer).

These had to be ‘CLASSIFIED’ if not “TOP SECRET”.  In my professional opinion, these were leaked by the dying, or dead, photographer that took them in an effort to expose his killers.  Three days after a neutron nuke explosion, the only radioactive ‘hot spot’ (and it’s ‘MEGA HOT” as radioactive sources go) is the crater.

The photographer was all up in it figuring angles, lighting, documentation, etc, for the government. The odds say he died of one, or possibly several different cancers. Based on the amount of radiation he had to have absorbed, suspect his medical history would show signs of radiation illness in a matter of days and probably for months, if not years.

BTW, all the people in the pictures in the crater. Probably dead of cancer too.

Make yourself less useless in your and others demise. See if you can manage a whole click of activity and click share.


Warning Yolo! Sick and Vaped in the last 90 days. It’s Vaping Illness? Yet Yolo unknown?


Reports of seven deaths and hundreds of illnesses linked to vaping THC and nicotine are scary. Here’s what you need to know.


“all had vaped—either weed, nicotine, or a combination of the two—in the previous 90 days”

Good old healthy “Pneumonia saved my life”

Gobble it up you stupid fucks.

Does it sound like I don’t give a shit anymore? And I’m going to try very hard to remain that way. We deserve what we get. Fuck Homo S.

Yolo! Finally a cause and a brand for real ‘Vaping Illness’ somehow unknown to government health agencies.
By autumn 2017, Thompson and her partner formed another company, Mathco Health Corporation.
Within a few months, Yolo spiked with synthetic marijuana — commonly known as K2 or spice — began appearing on store shelves around Salt Lake City.
Samples tested at Utah labs showed Yolo contained a synthetic marijuana blamed for at least 11 deaths in Europe — and no CBD at all.
There are many different chemicals being made, used and marketed under ‘synthetic marijuana’ most of them exhibit PCP characteristics when done at high dose.

Why? In just this website I have over three quarters of a million views. On the old expired site I posted on, The Price of Liberty, more than 2 million views.

In all those views as well as many more on different sites where I personally took more of my life to repost censored information, the number of shares to expose vital government treason facts are less than 100.

So at some point, eventually even the most stupid ass on the planet has to say, “Fuck ’em, they deserve what they get.”

Hopefully for me, I’ll finally be able to stick to it this time.


New Laws of Physics Noted in WTC Fires and Ignored – Dr. Cahill’s Discovery of Anaerobic Chlorine Fueled Combustion


New Laws of Physics Noted in WTC Fires and Ignored – Dr. Cahill’s Discovery of Anaerobic Chlorine Fueled Combustion

Consistent Surface Fires in the WTC pile did not exist after the third day. Supposedly fires raged ‘underground’ under several inches of powdered concrete. Physics/logic dictates that fire must be supplied Oxygen to burn. Fuel will not burn without oxygen. Basic logic/physics/fire prevention predicts that covering a fire with dirt puts out the fire by cutting the supply of oxygen. Based on the evidence and experience Dr. Cahill states several times that the WTC pile is ‘Oxygen Poor’, notes Anaerobic = without oxygen insights, AND ‘Chlorine Rich = LARGE amounts of Chlorine. Hmm, oxygen poor that doesn’t sound like a good mix for a ‘fire’ that is going to be so hot it makes molten metal – most likely scenario – steel (complete BS even in a real fire). But, there was lots of Chlorine. I bet Chlorine must take the place of Oxygen and let fires burn? To see chlorines effects on fire see this link on how Halon Fire Extinguishers work http://www.sciam.com/askexpert_question.cfm?articleID=00022345-5BB8-1C72-9EB7809EC588F2D7&catID=3&topicID=4 , or this link on Halon Fire Extinguishers http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/2000-11/974329262.Ch.r.html (and while you are there take a look at the cheap fire extinguisher D – a bucket of sand (SiO2 – Silicon compound). Silicon isn’t there a large percentage of that in the 2 Billion pounds of WTC Dust? USGS report says the WTC ‘sand’ was on average 15% Silicon, 18% Calcium (Carbonate) http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2001/ofr-01-0429/chem1/WTCchemistrytable.html, the Lioy report also gives a maximum percentage of 20% volatile compounds in the WTC dust and approximately 2% asbestos was also present. http://www.ehponline.org/members/2002/110p703-714lioy/lioy-full.html#resu

OXYGEN – The air we breathe is about 21 percent oxygen. fire only needs an atmosphere with at least 16 percent oxygen. http://www.ou.edu/oupd/fireprim.htm Again, note Anaerobic is without Oxygen = 0.0, None, Nada, Zero Oxygen in at least some parts of the ‘fire’. 16% Oxygen required for combustion, yet at least some areas (most likely scenario is the whole 5 acres was Anaerobic) of the underground ‘fire’ had Zero Oxygen. How does that work in basic physics? How does the ‘supposed fire’ like the WTC not only exist, but spread rapidly to 5 acres of land that was cool and is suddenly over 1000 degrees centigrade. Think about the mass involved that attains that heat in hours in ‘oxygen poor’ conditions. (Not 16% Oxygen the percentage that fails to support combustion, but 0% Oxygen in at least some areas of the ‘fire’.

Four separate inhibitors of combustion, sand, ‘oxygen poor’ atmosphere, ‘chlorine rich’ atmosphere, and a rich carbon dioxide/carbon monoxide were interacting in this supposed ‘fire’. Any one of these inhibitors of fire in sufficient quantities will completely extinguish fires. The new physics requires that values be referred to in ‘non numerical’ nonsense values – examples: Tritium value = ‘below human concern’, oxygen value = ‘poor’, chlorine value = ‘rich’ with no correlation to the proven requirements of combustion or the chemical reaction taking place in combustion. What were the combustible products of this fire? For the most part there was only concrete and steel left in the debris pile per picture evidence and eyewitness accounts. Where did the combustible debris go? There was less than 20% volatile products in the 2 Billion pounds of particle dust (a lot of material by mass), but this was dispersed in an 80% non combustible matrix..

Old physics = This supposed ‘fire’ should extinguish not form a blast furnace caliber fire.

New physics = Proven inhibitors of combustion interact to form ‘super’ ‘fire’ of incinerator/blast furnace caliber. According to the team, data indicates that the WTC plume “in many ways [resembles] those seen from municipal waste incinerators and high temperatures processes in coal-fired power plants.” (Reactions that require massive Oxygen to support the process) http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/entity.jsp?entity=thomas_cahill

The ‘new physics’ fire started 800 feet above ground and supposedly got to 800 degrees according to NIST with unlimited Oxygen supply. The ‘new physics’ fire falls 800 feet, through thick suffocating aerosolized sand and is dispersed over twice the original area with the residual temperature of the burning elements starting the ‘new’ ‘new physics’ fire in conditions that should extinguish fire, but somehow produces a 1500 degree ‘super fire’. It is highly unlikely there was any active flame after the fall from 800 feet through suffocating amounts of sand/dust.
The ‘old physics’ fire requires that the massive heat (far above 1500 degrees) was present in the debris which brought any combustible compound to the ‘kindling temperature’ which spontaneously ignited when exposed to Oxygen. Coincidently, (who could have figured) that is exactly what was observed whenever relief efforts removed structure (concrete/steel) that was inhibiting Oxygen flow to the super heated debris pile.

Update: Dioxin Definitely Present in Large Amounts at WTC. Chlorine + Heat = Dioxin. This is finally a proven possible alternate source for several of the cancers – breast, skin, probably a couple more applicable to this type exposure. http://www.acereport.org/cancer2.html Dioxin could account for some of the huge spectrum of cancers and it would be dependent on exposure amounts. (Our vets got massive doses in Vietnam and the government managed to hide that fairly easily.) But there are still many more cancers not explained by any single proven cause link except radiation.

Very fine aerosols from the World Trade Center collapse piles: Anaerobic Incineration?
http://www.llnl.gov/tid/lof/documents/pdf/305393.pdf Has several nice tidbits.

“By September 14, three days after the initial World Trade Center collapse, efforts at fire suppression and heavy rainfall had extinguished the immediate surface fires. From then until roughly mid-December, the collapse piles continuously emitted an acrid smoke and fume in the smoldering phase of the event.” “The unprecedented levels of several metals in the very fine mode can be tied to liberation of those metals that are both present in elevated concentrations in the debris and have depressed volatility temperatures caused by the presence of organic materials and chlorine.”

“The presence of fuels, including diesel and electrical insulating oils and combustible materials in the WTC buildings, and lack of oxygen were two factors that allowed the fire to burn for over 3 months.” “The DRUM operated until Late December, after the last surface fires had been extinguished. (Cahill et al, 2004)”

“The mechanism proposed is then the formation of gasses in the oxygen-poor, chlorine rich collapse piles, emission through the rubble and conversion at or near the surface into oxidized forms and thus very fine particles.”


Pg 61: Line 9 through 14

CONGRESSMAN NADLER: So that the EPA if it is dependent on the information for those sensors for its public pronouncements cannot say anything about the very fine particles?
DR. CAHILL: That’s correct.

Page 101: Lines 5 through 17

MR. MICHELI: Well, I was going to get into the fact, that since everything — and you used the word before, which is one of the words I used to describe what happened, which is atomized. Basically when you walk around the pile and you see the pictures and if you are down there, you’ll see, some of the only remaining things is steel. You know, there is no shoe box, there is no carpet, there is no ceiling tiles or Gypsum wallboard or any actual pieces of concrete.

Page 135: Lines 4 through 11

DR. LEVIN: I don’t believe that all of the fires are out. It is my understanding that there are occasional areas of smoldering that are identified, but certainly we’re not seeing the levels of combustion that was going on until somewhere in the order of mid-December.

Page 201: Lines 3 through 6

At one point I had a conversation with an inspector at the Department of Health and asked him, “So what you’re telling me is that the EPA won’t test because they’ll know what they’re find?” And he said yes.

Page 216

Is there an agency, Federal, State, or City which will test the indoor air in our apartments now?
CHIEF INVESTIGATOR KAUFMAN: Yes. The Environmental Protection Agency does it everywhere in the country but they have abandoned Lower Manhattan.
MS. PERILLO: That’s answer one.
CONGRESSMAN NADLER: The answer is no, there is not such an agency right now. There is an agency that ought to do it, that has the legal duty to do it, but that is right now refusing to do it.

Page 219

It’s only going to take money. But the first step to do it is for the government and EPA do what they do everywhere else in the country except for Lower Manhattan, which is do the testing inside the homes, comply with the laws of the United States, and come up with remediation plans and safe levels for clean up.

Massive Radiation in World Trade Center Demolition and Molten Bedrock by Ed Ward, MD

No Gold In the Oceans, No Radiation In the WTCs, No Treasonous Traitors in US Government, No Murderous Treason in PhD, Steven Jones Government False Flag Coverup

No Radiation, My Ass. Denial and Ignorance of Basic Math is Killing Millions and Letting Government Killers Go Free

For Solutions, “How Much is Actually There?”, “It’s Not the Concentration, It’s the Volume, Stupid.”

Volume = Mass/Concentration https://www.physiologyweb.com/calculators/mass_per_volume_solution_concentration_calculator.html

More simply “Volume X Concentration = Mass”. Volume (Total Volume of Sample Source) X (Times = Multiplication) Sample Concentration = Mass (Total Amount Present at Sample Site)

“According to the National Ocean Service, our oceans hold some 20 million pounds of gold, suspended in normal seawater. But this gold is spread throughout the normal mineral content of seawater to the tune of “parts per trillion.”

As the NOAA puts it, “Each liter of seawater contains, on average, about 13 billionths of a gram of gold.” https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/gold-ocean-sea-hoax-science-water-boom-rush-treasure

Only 2 samples taken for WTC’s demolition area. Their average is a little more than 1,000 Tritium Units – Tu. But, let’s use the easiest to see and use 1,000 Tu/Liter.

Volume = 1,000,000 Million Liters Rain and Fire hose water . Concentration 1,000 Tu/Liter = 1,000,000,000 Tu = 1 BILLION Tu’s present in just the residual water.

Now that’s not the actual total amount of Tritium produced at the WTC site
In a fire at a Tritium storage site without water, all Tritium escapes directly into the atmosphere. https://e-reports-ext.llnl.gov/pdf/241096.pdf

In a nuclear blast, during and after the blast, all Tritium escapes into the atmosphere, unless water is poured over the debris to cool it down.

So 1 BILLION Tritium units is only a very small portion of the Total Amount of Tritium produced in a nuclear detonation.

“Presence of RL EXIT signs in the buildings would have implied large available source of tritium. We were informed by PANYNJ authorities that there were no tritium signs at the WTC, only photoluminescent ones (33)” https://e-reports-ext.llnl.gov/pdf/241096.pdf

This pdf also notes that in a dry fire all tritium escapes into the atmosphere. Link is in my article Update: The US Government’s Usage of Atomic Bombs – Domestic – WTC

“North Hills Hospital is proud to be hosting one of the largest emergency preparedness drills ever held in the state of Texas this week. We will be partnering with the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council (NCTTRAC) and first responders from throughout North Texas to test our equipment and processes so that when a real disaster happens, we’re all ready to respond.

This drill is even timelier in the wake of the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon. Our prayers go out to the victims involved, and we are proud of the first responders – EMS, fire, police, race workers, and hospital staff – who so bravely cared for the injured.

If you live near North Hills Hospital, you will see a lot of activity in our parking lots over the next three days as the NCTTRAC sets up a mobile 140-bed hospital, along with dozens of ambulances, several AMBUS (multi-patient ambulances), and helicopters. This is only a drill and will simulate a hospital evacuation, something that might be necessary in the event of a tornado, hurricane, earthquake, or prolonged power failure.

Set-up for the drill will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, with the drill occurring on Thursday. At no time will regular patient care be affected, as the drill will use only “actor” patients and be confined to non-patient care areas and the parking lot.” Original article censored.

USS Fitzgerald – No Reaction, No Warning Until Water Pouring In


I’m severely censored, so lets keep it brief.

“A “tremendous” amount of water flooded through the huge gash, in the words of Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, commander of the U.S. 7th Fleet. Sailors asleep in their berths woke to a powerful torrent of seawater. Seven sailors never made it out.”  http://www.ndtv.com/world-news/there-wasnt-a-lot-of-time-as-water-flooded-us-destroyer-below-decks-1713948

Do you think there could have been a warning, and sailors just said ‘Nah, I’ll go back to sleep.’ There could NOT have been a warning with ‘sleeping sailors’.

“The coast guard initially said the collision occurred at 2:20 a.m. because the Philippine ship had reported it at 2:25 a.m. and said it just happened. After interviewing Filipino crewmembers, the coast guard has changed the collision time to 1:30 a.m.”  http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/japan-investigates-delay-reporting-us-navy-ship-collision-48127236

“Cmdr. Ron Flanders, a Navy spokesman, said Monday that the destroyer reported to officials that it collided at 2:20 a.m. Saturday with the Philippine-flagged container ship off the coast of Yokosuka near Tokyo. Seven American sailors died in the crash.

Coast guard officials said they have revised the time of the collision to 1:30 a.m. from their earlier estimate of 2:20 a.m. after interviewing crewmembers of the container ship, the ACX Crystal.

A track of the container ship’s route by MarineTraffic, a vessel-tracking service, shows it made a sudden turn as if trying to avoid something at about 1:30 a.m., before continuing eastward. It then made a U-turn and returned around 2:30 a.m. to the area near the collision.”  https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2017/06/19/world/asia/ap-as-japan-us-navy-collision-the-latest.html?_r=0

The ACX Crystal was aware enough to try and avoid the USS Fitzgerald, which did not only not react to an impending collision, did NOT even warn it’s own crew of impending collision. Hence, 7 of the crew drowning.

Update 6/21/17: US Navy Times finally notes the obvious. “This combination of factors leads me to suspect that there was no warning,” Brennan said.  https://www.navytimes.com/articles/navy-fitzgerald-collision-investigations-begin

Incompetence and Cover Up A-Plenty.
