DAM! What’s Going On?

Yesterday, I gave readers information, including a link to a Working Paper, the result of lawsuits and the compiling of information that appears as a possible threat to Americans when the U.S. Congress granted control of the Kerr Dam to the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) of the Flathead Indian Reservation located in northwestern, Montana. According to information provided by Lawrence A. Kogan and Anita Bradley, there are Turkish connections to the CSKT and involvement with the dam. These connections gave rise to concerns to many.

As part of this “concern,” the below information and links followed emails about the Working Paper, that included updated information. Before reading the below, I suggest you might want to first read the Working Paper. I’ve followed all the links provided and thoroughly read the media accounts. The media accounts provide what most people would call items of a legitimate concern – mostly because nobody has provided explanations of these events.

I will, however, remind readers of my comments yesterday when I stated that all media reports are, “lies and full of distractions.” That, of course, doesn’t mean a total disregard for what is written. On the same token it is irresponsible to blindly accept everything written as truth. That is up to the reader to determine.

I will point out one obvious example of how the media and those who provide information to the media screw things up and send mixed messages – either deliberately or ignorantly. In one of the news outlets, that media quotes a person of supposed authority as saying that over 50 stolen propane tanks could not be the work of terrorists because stealing the tanks would draw the attention of law enforcement. This is followed by another news report of “tens of thousands” of blank passports “possibly” stolen by ISIS or other terror/criminal groups. In that report, the concern was about the possibility that ISIS or other terror groups stole the passports. Why then, is stealing of propane tanks, that would draw the attention of law enforcement, not be terrorist activity and stealing passports would?

Regardless, it seems that there have been recent events following the supposed terror act in San Bernadino, that should be of concern. In addition, with relatively recent information that the U.S. Government is covering up possible terror events, including Iranian hacking into control systems of dams, I would think there should be legitimate concern about the Kerr Dam with the residents of Montana and the whole of the U.S.

Then again, all of this could be just distractions. Remember though, distractions are for a reason. Trust no one! Do your own work…if you care.

Here is the email addendum to the Working Paper:

Readers throughout the United States should be concerned about the connections the Kogan-Bradley report <http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2704179> makes between otherwise separate policy areas, especially in light of the following recent media reports identifying troublesome but seemingly unconnected incidents-of-concern.  These include: 1) the FBI’s investigation of Middle Eastern men expressing interest in touring Bagnell Dam/Reservoir on Lake Ozark < https://www.ijreview.com/2015/12/495768-fbi-missouri-dam/ >; 2) the FBI’s investigation of 5 total confirmed incidents of bulk (60-100 unit) cell phone purchases at various Walmart locations in south and central Missouri < http://www.abc17news.com/news/fbi-investigating-suspicious-purchase-at-columbia-walmart/36877514>; 3) the administration’s cover-up of an FBI investigation of Iranian computer hackers securing access to the control system of a small dam outside of New York City two years ago < http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/12/21/iranian-hackers-gained-access-to-suburban-nyc-dam-in-2013-report-says.html >; 4)  the FBI’s investigation of the stealing of dozens of propane tanks at Kansas City, Missouri-based CVS stores and a BP gas station < http://fox2now.com/2015/12/11/dozens-of-propane-tanks-stolen-from-three-different-missouri-locations/ >; 5) Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan’s meeting with Khaled Meshaal, leader of Palestinian militant group Hamas <http://news.yahoo.com/turkeys-erdogan-meets-hamas-leader-meshaal-istanbul-sources-190315386.html >; 6) Islamic State’s stealing of “tens of thousands” of blank passports that it could use to smuggle its fighters into Europe, and potentially, the U.S., as refugees < http://news.yahoo.com/jihadists-stole-tens-thousands-blank-passports-report-154955786.html;_ylt=AwrXgiO003ZWWEsA_z_QtDMD;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjR0MTVzBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwM3BHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg– >; and 7) the administration’s cover-up of U.S. troops with prior Middle East combat experience <http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/21/AR2010062104103.html> and current Syrian refugees being stricken with a lethal skin-eating disease capable of surviving for up to one year within the host’s body in tropical and sub-tropical climates and being transported to the United States <http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/syria-epidemic-leishmaniasis_5671e7d7e4b0dfd4bcc07c8e >.
