'Israel Has Been Abandoned', Mysterious Walmart Closings, Mysterious Stretch Of Pacific Heating, Drought Spreading, ISIS Camp Near U.S. Border

Wake Up! Israel Has Been Abandoned

Israeli goods are boycotted in the stores, Israeli professors are banned in the universities, Jewish faithful are gunned down in the streets, anti-Semitic dramas are shown in the best theatres, anti-Israel resolutions are promulgated in parliaments, Jewish synagogues are protected like military outposts.

Welcome to post-Auschwitz Europe. 

We are witnessing the same Jew-hatred that already plunged the European continent into its twentieth century abyss, when the houses of peasants   had Jewish ashes under their windows. 

An insurance company just refused to insure a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels because risks of attacks are too high. So Europe, which blames Israel for protecting Jewish children after the Shoah and refusing to see them as victims, abandons its Jews to hate and fear. 
In Geneva, the United Nations' Human Rights Council condemned just one country for violation of women's rights. Syria for the rape as a war crime? No. Iran for stoning women? No.

Europe's intellectual and political establishment obsessively preaches and works for Israel's disappearance. Seventy years after the Holocaust, pogroms take place every year: Brussels, Tolouse, Paris... Meanwhile, Nobel laureates spread new blood libels against the Jewish people. 

The last edition of the New York Review of Books, the world's most sophisticated literary magazine, charged Israel with being "proto-fascist". Words count, even if we believe they don't. People around the world read these journals and newspapers and get their concept of "truth" from them.
If in the past the orders to boycott Israel came from Damascus, where theArab League operations are headquartered, today the boycott is based in Europe’s pension funds, supermarkets, firms and companies, labor unions and food co-ops.
 And it is led not by Arab officials, but by transnational groups, mainstream media, charities, pressure groups and campaigning networks

And it has already proven very successful. The company Veolia just closed its activities in Israel after years of boycott.

In an act which would have made Himmler and Goebbels proud, a group of leftist anti-Israeli demonstrators, wearing protective clothing to avoid being infected by "Zionist bacteria", entered stores in the Swedish city of Malmo to confiscate Israeli products, declaring them fruits of the "occupation of Palestine" and as such either to be boycotted or destroyed. 

In the Middle Ages, fanatics burned heretics at the stake. Today they burn Israel. 
Listen and the song of anti-Semitism grows louder. Once again it is fusing with Europe's mainstream. Tomorrow they will wonder whether another disaster really happened at all. 
Wake up! Jews have been abandoned, again. 

[Who knows what the truth is, but so-called 'plumbing issues' doesn't seem to be the truth as no permits have been requested and no plumbing work is being done]

“Plumbing issues” abound at Wal-Mart supercenters, as the Admiral Place and Memorial Drive location was only one of five across the nation suddenly shut down Monday.
In addition to the Tulsa location, supercenters in Brandon, FloridaPico Rivera, CaliforniaMidland, Texas; and Livingston, Texas, were all closed Monday, with just hours notice given to employees.

On 13 April 2015, several separate WalMart locations in the United States abruptly closed their doors. The cited reason for the closures (according to the chain’s corporate offices) was plumbing problems at the affected stores.
On 14 April 2015, the number of suddenly shuttered stores was widely rumored to total six, a number dwarfed in the context of the chain’s 4,520 locations. However, the closures sparked widespread online speculation (including several threads on Reddit) piqued by a few anomalous aspects of those closures.
Affected stores as of 14 April 2015 included Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tampa, Florida; Midland and Livingston, Texas; and Pico Rivera, California. A Twitter user snapped a photograph of a sign posted at the latter location:

Tampa Bay television station WTSP did some investigating and found no evidence that plumbing-related issues were being dealt with at a closed local WalMart store:

"We called the county. Officials say they have no record of any code or permit violation at the Brandon location.
And when were at that Walmart, there were no marked septic trucks or plumbing vehicles in the lot.
“Where is everybody if they’re supposed to be working on everything where are all the trucks?” asked shopper Melissa Dupuis.
We asked a WalMart spokesperson whether the five [closed] stores were built from the same design, whether they had the same contractor, anything to understand why all of them closed on the same day for “plumbing issues.”

Five different stores suddenly announced they were shutting up shop all for the same reason.
Walmarts in Pico Rivera, California, Livingston, Texas, Midland, Texas, Brandon, Florida, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, all made the announcement.

The news sparked wild conspiracy theories, with some linking the closures to Jade Helm, the upcoming military exercise which some fear is a dry run for martial law.

What’s bizarre about the closures is that they seem to have been announced with no planning whatsoever. Shelves were fully stocked and employees were given no warning before they were laid off.
At one Walmart store in Pico Rivera, California, employees protested the fact that they had been laid off with just five hours notice.

James Enriquez, the city’s public works director, said Walmart had not even notified authorities of plumbing problems, despite the fact that the company would be required to pull permits before undertaking extensive work.

“If I were a property owner I’d want to make sure my store was closed as little as possible,” Enriquez said. “I would want a permit to be in place the day I was going to close — but we haven’t received anything.”
It’s quite strange that these problems with clogs and leaks have all suddenly occurred at five different stores around the country, plus would it really take 6 months to fix some plumbing issues when entire Walmart stores can be built in less than a year?

“I’m an electrician and I used to work for a company that did repairs at Walmarts,” writes another respondent to the story. “They make the contractors jump through hoops so they do not have to shut down or cause any inconvenience.”
“If it really was a plumbing issue, they would build completely new restrooms first then repair any issue afterwards. Also, knowing Walmart’s timelines, there is no way in hell any contractors would have 6 months to complete any repair project.”
While lurid explanations about FEMA camp staging centers make little sense, it does seem very odd that Walmart announced these closures with no planning whatsoever, laying off hundreds of workers on a whim.

 Not just one, but five Walmart stores across the U.S. are closing their doors due to plumbing problems that, in some cases, will take four to six months to repair.

Those closing include locations in Livingston and Midland, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and near Los Angeles.

For the Brandon Walmart, I talked to Hillsborough County and Walmart to get answers about why these plumbing repairs will take so long and whether the issues are connected, but local customers are already skeptical.

"Why is it just plumbing problems? It's gonna take them six months to fix up the store?" asked customer John Mambrl.

Hundreds were turned away again at the Walmart Superstore on East Brandon Boulevard Tuesday where they found doors shut and locked and the pharmacy guarded by security.

So 10 News called the county. Officials say they have no record of any code or permit violation at the Brandon location.

And when 10 News was at the Walmart Tuesday, there were no marked septic trucks or plumbing vehicles in the lot.

"Where is everybody if they're supposed to be working on everything where are all the trucks?" asked shopper Melissa Dupuis.

10 News asked a Walmart spokesperson whether the five stores were built from the same design, whether they had the same contractor, anything to understand why all of them closed on the same day for "plumbing issues."

Employees and customers are not buying Walmart’s explanation that it is closing five nationwide stores for six months due to “plumbing” issues, with questions swirling about the sudden closures that left hundreds of workers unemployed.

As we reported yesterday, Walmart stores in Pico Rivera, California, Livingston, Texas, Midland, Texas, Brandon, Florida, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, all announced that they were abruptly closing for the exact same reason – plumbing problems that would take six months to resolve. The explanation caused consternation given that entire Walmart stores have been built within the same time frame.

Employees were told the same day that they were going to be laid off, prompting questions as to why the repair work was not planned in advance. Director of Public Works James Enriquez said a Walmart in Pico Rivera, California, had not even notified authorities of plumbing problems, despite the fact that the company would be required to pull permits before undertaking extensive work.

10 News also reported that no plumbing trucks were seen at the Walmart in Brandon, Florida, while city officials said they had no record of any code violation at the store. Officials also visited the site and found no evidence of any repair work taking place.
When asked why the five different Walmart stores all closed at the same time for the same reason, a Walmart spokesperson merely reiterated the plumbing explanation, leading shopper Norma Espinosa to ask, “How many things have they not said? That’s scary,”
As the video below shows, police resources are also having to be used to guard the closed Walmart in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Customers there also thought that the “plumbing” explanation sounded dubious, with one employee relating how she had asked about the issue in a meeting. “They would not give me an exact answer to anything,” she told NewsOn6.

The city of Tulsa also denied that any plumbing permit applications from Walmart had been received.
ABC Action News reported that, “None of the five affected stores have sought any plumbing permits for future repairs.”
“I think it’s a lie, I think it’s something else,” another shopper said in reaction to the closure of the Pico Rivera Walmart.

A Walmart official at another closed store in Midland, Texas denied that the closure was a method of trimming highly paid employees, who earn $14-an-hour.
Footage shot at the Walmart in Livingston, Texas shows shelves being emptied before the closure of the store.

According to two University of Washington scientific research papers that were recently released, a 1,000 mile stretch of the Pacific Ocean has warmed up by several degrees, and nobody seems to know why this is happening.  This giant “blob” of warm water was first observed in late 2013, and it is playing havoc with our climate.  And since this giant “blob” first showed up, fish and other sea creatures have been dying in absolutely massive numbers.  So could there be a connection?  And what is going to happen if the Pacific Ocean continues to warm up?  Could we potentially be facing the greatest holocaust of sea life in the Pacific that anyone has ever observed?  If so, what would that mean for the food chain and for our food supply?

For a large portion of the Pacific Ocean to suddenly start significantly heating up without any known explanation is a really big deal.  The following information about this new research comes from the University of Washington

“In the fall of 2013 and early 2014 we started to notice a big, almost circular mass of water that just didn’t cool off as much as it usually did, so by spring of 2014 it was warmer than we had ever seen it for that time of year,” said Nick Bond, a climate scientist at the UW-based Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, a joint research center of the UW and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Bond coined the term “the blob” last June in his monthly newsletter as Washington’s state climatologist. He said the huge patch of water – 1,000 miles in each direction and 300 feet deep – had contributed to Washington’s mild 2014 winter and might signal a warmer summer.

It would be one thing if scientists knew why this was happening and had an explanation for it.
But they don’t.
In fact, according to the Washington Post, they are calling this something that is “totally new”…
Scientists have been astonished at the extent and especially the long-lasting nature of the warmth, with one NOAA researcher saying, “when you see something like this that’s totally new you have opportunities to learn things you were never expecting.”

The following map comes from the NOAA, and it shows what this giant “blob” looks like…

Pacific Ocean Anomaly
According to CBS News, ocean temperatures inside this blob have risen anywhere from two to seven degrees Fahrenheit above normal…

This warm blob, which is about 2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit (1 to 4 degrees Celsius) warmer than the usual temperature for this region, means the winter air that crosses over the Pacific Ocean wasn’t cooled as much as it normally would be. That, in turn, spelled warmer, dryer conditions for the West Coast.

Meanwhile, while this has been going on, scientists have also been noticing that sea creatures in the Pacific have been dying in record numbers.
In fact, last summer I wrote an article entitled “Why are massive numbers of sea creatures dying along the west coast right now?
Since then, things have continued to get even worse.
For instance, it was recently reported that the number of sea lions washing up on Southern California beaches is at an all-time record high…
A record 2,250 sea lions, mostly pups, have washed up starving and stranded on Southern California beaches so far this year, a worsening phenomenon blamed on warming seas in the region that have disrupted the marine mammals’ food supply.

And of course fish are being deeply affected as well.  Sardines have declined to their lowest level in six decades, and National Geographic says that a whole host of tiny fish species at the bottom of the food chain are dying off rapidly…

So if the bottom of the food chain is experiencing a catastrophic collapse, what is that going to mean for the rest of the food chain in the Pacific Ocean?
In turn, what is that going to mean for the seafood industry and for the price of seafood in our grocery stores?
Some really strange things are happening on the other side of the Pacific right now as well.
Over in Japan, the media is buzzing about the recent mass beaching of 150 melon-headed whales.  A similar incident was observed just six days before the great earthquake and tsunami of 2011.  The following comes from the Japan Times
Very strange stuff.
For our entire lives, we have been able to take for granted that our oceans would always be stable and healthy.
But now it appears that things may be changing.

Author and attorney Ellen Brown says the drought in California is dire.  NASA recently said that California has just one year of water left.  Brown says, “It was just declared our number one emergency. . . .It’s pretty shocking what is happening.  It’s our fourth year of drought.  The Governor just declared that all the cities must cut back 25% in water usage. . . . The water districts are being fined $10,000 for going over, and you can get a $500 fine for doing a 10 minute shower instead of a 5 minute shower.  They have smart meters that can show specifically how long your shower was, which is kind of scary in itself.”
Wall Street is getting involved with the coming water wars.  Brown says, “Goldman Sachs has declared that water is now the new oil.  So, they are buying up all of these water rights, and there are huge funds set aside for water.  They attempted to privatize the Reno water district and then lease it back to the city of Reno, but the people protested.  That’s the model you see everywhere.  They are privatizing everything and then leasing it back in perpetuity for many multiples for what we were paying in the first place. . . . The reservoirs only have one year of water left.  When you use all of that, then you have ground water, and that’s when you have all of these water wars.”

Brown goes on to say, “Food prices have not sky rocketed—yet. . . . That could be a problem, and people will be pointing to inflation, and they will probably blame government money printing, but that’s not it.  It will be caused by drought. . . . Just last year, California lost $2.2 billion on agriculture.  I think they are down by $5 billion total from the drought, but if you count all the other western states, it’s much more than that.  Of course, food prices are going to go up, and everybody is going to pay for it in one way or another.”

So, with just one year’s worth of water left in California, what is being done other than conservation?  Brown, shockingly, says, “There are no solutions that are happening right now.  We have had conservation and toilets that use less water, but I don’t see the government doing anything that will fix the problem right now. . . . The plan seems to be charge more for water, but that doesn’t fix the problem.  I have read that officials have said we have no backup plan.”

The last time we looked at Las Vegas water supply, the comments from professionals were "Vegas is screwed," and unless water levels in Lake Mead rise by 7%, "it's as bad as you can imagine." The bad news... Water levels in Lake Mead have never been lower for this time of year - and this is before the Summer heat seasonal plunge takes effect.

We noted previously, as with many things in Sin City, the apparently endless supply of water is an illusion.

America’s most decadent destination has been engaged in a potentially catastrophic gamble with nature and now, 14 years into a devastating drought, it is on the verge of losing it all.

“The situation is as bad as you can imagine,” said Tim Barnett, a climate scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. “It’s just going to be screwed. And relatively quickly. Unless it can find a way to get more water from somewhere Las Vegas is out of business. Yet they’re still building, which is stupid.”

"It's just going to be screwed. And relatively quickly," warns Tim Barnett, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, telling The Telegraph, the situation in Las Vegas is "as bad as you can imagine". After a devastating, 14-year drought drained the reservoir that supplies 90% of the city’s water, the apparently endless supply of water is an illusion as Las Vegas population has soared.

As Barnett ominously concludes, "unless it can find a way to get more water from somewhere, Las Vegas is out of business. Yet they’re still building, which is stupid."

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Mexican intelligence sources report that ISIS intends to exploit the railways and airport facilities in the vicinity of Santa Teresa, NM (a US port-of-entry). The sources also say that ISIS has “spotters” located in the East Potrillo Mountains of New Mexico (largely managed by the Bureau of Land Management) to assist with terrorist border crossing operations. ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities; the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.

ISIS camps have now been discovered directly across the U.S. border with Mexico, ISIS operatives have been captured illegally entering the United States, and ISIS is threatening to conduct a massive campaign of terror against U.S. targets, and yet Barack Obama and his underlings continue to insist that “right-wing extremists” are the greatest terror threat that this nation is facing.  One recent survey found that 84 percent of all Americans believe that ISIS is a “direct threat to the USA," but Obama refuses to secure our borders and he is even allowing dozens of American citizens that fought for ISIS overseas to come back into this country.  What in the world is Obama thinking?  Even though ISIS has promised to drown all of us in our own blood, the Obama administration has purged virtually all references to Islam out of government terror training materials.  Meanwhile, as you will see below, Obama’s political enemies have been regularly labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents during the Obama era.  This includes “patriots," “conspiracy theorists,” “evangelical Christians,” and “general right-wing extremists."

This week, we learned that it has been confirmed that ISIS cells are operating in northern Mexico just a few miles from U.S. territory.  The following is an excerpt from a bombshell report that Judicial Watch just released…

Considering how porous our border security is at this point, how many more members of ISIS have been able to come across without getting caught?
And none of this should be catching anyone by surprise.  There have been warnings since the middle of last year that ISIS would be attempting to cross the southern border and attack targets inside the United States.  The following comes from a recent article by Kurt Nimmo
In 2014, Midland County, Texas Sheriff Gary Painter said ISIS would cross the border and strike the United States.
In August, a former CIA officer, Mike Baker, told the Laura Ingraham Show ISIS works with the drug cartels.
Judicial Watch said in August ISIS was using Juárez as a staging area and planned to launch a car bomb attack against Fort Bliss, a U.S. Army base about fifteen minutes from the border.
In September, Infowars reporter Joe Biggs. traveled to the area and crossed the Rio Grande dressed in an ISIS terrorist outfit. The stunt demonstrated how easy it would be for terrorists to enter the country.
