Report: Security Breakdown In America’s Nuclear Command Centers: “Not Taking the Job Seriously Enough”

nuclear-detonation

Last month a high level source speaking with Infowars revealed insider details of a nuclear weapons transfer within the domestic United States that was executed without an official directive or paper trail. One expert noted that such re-positioning of nuclear warheads doesn’t happen unless they “plan on using them.”

Curiously, just a day later, Senator Lindsey Graham warned that a failure to attack Syria could lead to a nuclear weapon being detonated in South Carolina. It was a notion that raised eye brows in mainstream media, but more so throughout alternative media circles, which suggested that the sequence of events were indicative of a false flag attack.

Yesterday, we learned that a senior member of U.S. nuclear command and head of the Air Force’s nuclear arsenal was relieved of his command. This has prompted questions about what is going on in the secret nuclear control centers around the country and it’s raising concerns about the security of America’s nuclear weapons.

Now, a report from the Associated Press goes further down the rabbit hole.

Together, the Carey and Giardina dismissals add a new dimension to a set of serious problems facing the military’s nuclear force.

The ICBM segment in particular has had several recent setbacks, including a failed safety and security inspection at a base in Montana in August, followed by the firing of the colonel there in charge of security forces. In May, The Associated Press revealed that 17 Minuteman 3 missile launch control officers at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., had been taken off duty in a reflection of what one officer there called “rot” inside the ICBM force.

In an inspection that the Air Force publicly termed a “success,” the AP disclosed that launch crews at Minot scored the equivalent of a “D” grade on missile operations. In June the officer in charge of training and proficiency of Minot’s missile crews was fired.

The sidelined launch officers were “not taking the job seriously enough,” causing their bosses to worry that they failed to understand what it takes to “stay up to speed” on nuclear missile operations, the Air Force chief of staff, Gen. Mark Welsh, told Congress in May. What it boiled down to, he said, was a lack of “proper attitude.”

Were the recent firings of top military brass a result of indiscretions and alcohol induced misbehavior as the official narrative would have us believe, or could a more sinister plot be developing?

Is it possible that nuclear war heads were, in fact, re-positioned by rogue elements within the ICBM nuclear command group without proper authorization?

And would these senior command terminations have occurred had the story about these weapons not been made public?

It’s all speculation at this point, but what we do know is that the U.S. government under the Obama Administration has been operating under a heavy veil of secrecy that has taken unprecedented steps to identify and prosecute whistle blowers and security leakers, making it difficult for the truth to make it to the public.

The fact that the military graded Air Force missile operations with a “D” should give us pause. That’s a gaping hole in our national security and one that could be capitalized on by those who would do us harm.

Thus, at this point, nothing is outside the realm of possibility, the least of which is the notion that a rogue element operating within the government apparatus may be planning a manufactured crisis on U.S. soil.

SHTF Plan – When It Hits The Fan, Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You

HARRY REID: Obamacare’s only the first step we’re taking to destroy the entire American health care system

The Statist’s work is never done.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Friday that Obamacare isn’t the final word in government health care reform, it’s just a big step toward the real solution, which is a single-payer system.

…”Reid said he thinks the country has to ‘work our way past’ insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program Nevada Week in Review

In other words, Democrats want to ‘work our way past‘ the free-market system.

…”When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: ‘Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.’

“The idea of introducing a single-payer national health care system to the United States, or even just a public option, sent lawmakers into a tizzy back in 2009, when Reid was negotiating the health care bill… [and] then-Sen. Joe Lieberman’s opposition to the idea of a public option made them abandon the notion and start from scratch.”

“Single-payer” is a system in which only the government provides and funds health care to citizens. Typical examples of single payer systems supported by U.S. advocates of the approach include Britain’s National Health Service [NHS] and Canada’s Health Canada program (which is also known there as “Medicare”).

Ah, yes: Britain’s NHS, authors of such classics as:

• “The NHS kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year

• “Horror: 13,000 dead patients, left without food and water

• “NHS darkest hour: 1,200 ‘appalling’ deaths at Stafford hospital but NO ONE blamed

Yeah, that single-payer system.

Socialized medicine has three priorities:

…the scheme requires complete government control of the national healthcare system. In this way, the government can control prices, costs, medical treatments, standards, and so forth. This is necessary because healthcare consumes a huge portion of government resources.

…socialized medicine is about providing equal care to every citizen. This is the basic pretext for instituting socialized medicine – to extend healthcare to those who do not already have it or cannot afford it. However, instead of merely providing taxpayer subsidized care to the have-nots, the promoters of Big Government seize the “crisis” opportunity to take control over everyone’s healthcare… schemes like ObamaCare and the NHS seek to ensure only that no one gets better care than anyone else.

…socialized healthcare is about rationing… The need for rationing is quite obvious… [as central planners try to control supply and demand]

We are watching the Statists dismantle the greatest health care system on Earth in pursuit of a Utopian fantasy. And the feckless “opposition party” won’t even fight.
