OBAMA ENDORSES GLOBAL U.N. GUN CONTROL TREATY

SCULPTURE AT U.N. IN NEW YORK CITY

PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S ADMINISTRATION IS WORKING WITH THE UNITED NATIONS TO ENDORSE A GLOBAL GUN CONTROL TREATY, CALLED THE SMALL ARMS TREATY (SAT), WITH THE APPROVAL OF THE U.S. CONGRESS, U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON SAID JUNE 16, ACCORDING TO A SUSANNE POSEL INFOWARS.COM ARTICLE.

THE SAT IS PART OF THE U.N.’S INTERNATONAL ARMS CONTROL TREATY (IACT), THAT IS BEING PASSED TO FIGHT TERRORISM AND INTERNATIONAL CRIMINALS, ACCORDING TO THE WORLD ORGANIZATION.  IF CONGRESS PASSES IACT, AS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WANTS, THE U.N. WOULD BE GIVEN THE POWER TO FORCE THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TO:  1. ENACT INTERNATIONALLY AGREED UPON LICENSING REQUIREMENT FOR AMERICANS.  2. CONFISCATE AND DESTROY UNAUTHORIZED AMERICAN FIREARMS. 3. BAN THE TRADE, SALE AND PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF SEMI-AUTOMATIC GUNS. 4. MANDATE THE CREATION OF AN INTERNATIONAL REGISTRY TO SHOW GUN CONFISCATIONS IN THE U.S.

SEN. JERRY MORAN, ALONG WITH 44 OTHER SENATORS, SENT A LETTER LAST WEEK TO THE PRESIDENT, WARNING HIM NOT TO CONTINUE HIS PUSH FOR RATIFICATION OF THE SAT.  PART OF THE LETTER STATED THAT AN ARMS TRADE TREATY THAT DOES NOT PROTECT OWNERSHIP OF CIVILIAN FIREARMS “WILL FAIL IN THE SENATE.  OUR FIREARM FREEDOMS ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE.”

PRIVATE GUN SALES BETWEEN CITIZENS, COLLECTORS AND SPORTSMEN WOULD BE INTERNATIONALLY REGULATED AFTER IACT IS APPROVED.  THERE WOULD ALSO BE GLOBAL RULES FOR BUYING AMMUNITION AND PROCUREMENT.  SENATORS, THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION AND PRO-GUN PEOPLE WORRY THAT IACT WOULD BE THE FIRST STEP TOWARD INTERNATIONAL GUN CONTROL.

SEVERAL SENATORS ARE STARTING A PROBE INTO BRAND USA, A PUBLIC-PRIVATE CORPORATION ESTABLISHED BY CONGRESS TO PROMOTE U.S. TOURISM, ACCORDING TO THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON.  THE CORPORATION HAS TENS OF MILLIONS IN FEDERAL FUNDS TO USE AS IT DETERMINES.  THE SENATORS SENT COMMERCE SECRETARY JOHN BRYSON A LETTER LAST WEEK THAT SAID IN PART:

“RECENT MEDIA REPORTS RAISED SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT THE DIRECTION AND MANAGEMENT OF THE PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN DIRECTED BY CORPORATION FOR TRAVEL PROMOTION (BRAND USA/CORPORATION), A PUBLIC/PRIVATE ENTITY FORMED TO PROMOTE U.S. TOURISM ABROAD.  WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT REPORTS OF POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT WASTE AND MISUSE OF FUNDS AT THE CORPORATION.”

THE VOYAGER I SPACE PROBE REACHED THE END OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, JUNE 15, NASA’S JET PROPULSION LABORATORY ANNOUNCED LAST WEEK IN PASADENO, CALIFORNIA.  NASA HAS CALLED THE SPACECRAFT “HUMANITY’S FIRST EMISSARY TO INTERSTELLAR SPACE.”

VOYAGER I AND VOYAGER II WERE LAUNCHED IN 1977.  BOTH HAVE EXPLORED ALL GIANT PLANETS OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM—JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS AND NEPTUNE; PLUS, 48 OF THESE PLANETS’ MOONS.  BOTH PROBES CARRY A GREETING FOR ANY INTELLIGENT LIFE-FORM THAT MIGHT DISCOVER THEM.  THEY HAVE A PHONOGRAPH RECORD AND A 12-INCH GOLD-PLATED COPPER DISC WITH SOUNDS AND IMAGES OF HUMANS AND LIFE ON EARTH.  THE PLUTONIUM POWER SOURCES ON THE VOYAGER SPACECRAFTS WILL RUN-OUT-OF-JUICE 2025.  THEY WILL KEEP GOING INTO THE UNIMAGINABLE REALMS OF SPACE, BUT THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEND BACK INFORMATION.

INTERNET SURFING BREAK

A BABY MAMMOTH CARCASS NAMED LYUBA SHOWN IN HONG KONG APRIL 10, 2012. IT IS 40,000 YEARS OLD; FOUND IN YAMAL PENINSULA, RUSSIA, 2005.

    

THE ANECHOIC CHAMBER

     THE LONGEST ANYONE COULD STAY IN THE WORLD’S QUIETEST ROOM AT ORFIELD LABORTORIES IN SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS IS 45 MINUTES, ACCORDING TO THE BLAZE.COM REPORTING ON A STORY THAT THE DAILY MAIL PUBLISHED.  THE LIGHTS WERE OFF, WHICH IS NORMAL FOR THOSE WHO STAY IN THE ROOM.

     THE ROOM IS CALLED AN “ANECHOIC CHAMBER” THAT IS 99.9 PERCENT SOUND ABSORBING, SAID FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF THE LAB, STEVEN ORFIELD.

     “WHEN IT’S QUIET, EARS WILL ADAPT,” HE SAID.  “THE QUIETER THE ROOM, THE MORE THINGS YOU HEAR.  YOU’LL HEAR YOUR HEART BEATING, SOMETIMES YOU CAN HEAR YOUR LUNGS, HEAR YOUR STOMACH GURGLING LOUDLY. 

     “IN THE ANECHOIC CHAMBER, YOU BECOME THE SOUND.  HOW YOU ORIENT YOURSELF IS THROUGH SOUNDS YOU HEAR WHEN YOU WALK.  IN THE ANECHOIC CHAMBER, YOU DON’T HAVE ANY CUES.  YOU TAKE AWAY THE PERCEPTUAL CUES THAT ALLOW YOU TO BALANCE AND MANOEUVRE.  IF YOU’RE IN THERE FOR HALF AN HOUR, YOU HAVE TO BE IN A CHAIR.”

     THE ROOM IS MADE WITH 3.3-FOOT-THICK FIBERGLASS ACOUSTIC WEDGES WITH WALLS OF INSULATED STEEL AND A FOOT OF CONCRETE.  ASTRONAUTS AT NASA HAVE USED THE ROOM TO TRY AND EXPERIENCE SOUNDLESS SPACE.

 

WHITE ROCK

       ABOVE IS WHITE ROCK.  NO ONE KNOWS HOW IT GOT ITS NAME—IT IS MORE TAN THAN WHITE, AND IT IS NOT A ROCK.  IT SITS ABOUT 150 FEET RIGHT OF THE NEW FORD CITY BRIDGE.  NO ONE KNOWS HOW LONG IT HAS BEEN THERE.  THE LIKELY EXPLANATION IS THAT WHEN THE RAILROAD WAS BEING BUILT IN THE 1800s, THE MEN WHO BLEW-AWAY TONS OF DIRT AND ROCKS WITH EXPLOSIVES TO LAY THE RAIL-BED FOR THE TRACKS, PROBABLY DECIDED TO TOSS THE LARGE BOLDER OVER THE HILL, RATHER THAN WASTE DYNAMITE TO DESTROY IT.  MANY, MANY PPG WORKERS HAVE STARED AT THAT ROCK OVER THE DECADES, WHILE THEY TOOK THEIR BREAKS.  MANY, MANY PEOPLE HAVE PAINTED IT WITH VARIOUS COLORS, MOST OF WHICH FADE AWAY WITH TIME.

      THE COAL INDUSTRY WILL HAVE THE SAME FATE AS OSAMA BIN LADEN UNDER NEW CLIMATE REGULATIONS PROPOSED BY THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY, UNITED MINE WORKERS OF AMERICA PRESIDENT CECIL ROBERTS SAID TUESDAY ON THE METRONEWS TALKLINE, A WEST VIRGINIA RADIO SHOW, ACCORDING TO THE HILL PUBLICATION.

      “THE NAVY SEALS SHOT OSAMA BIN LANDEN IN PAKISTAN AND LISA JACKSON SHOT US IN WASHINGTON,” ROBERTS SAID, REFERRING TO EPA HEAD, JACKSON.

     THE NEW REGULATIONS WOULD LIMIT GREENHOUSE GAS MISSIONS FROM NEW POWER PLANTS, WHICH WILL BE THE DEATH OF THE COAL INDUSTRY, ROBERTS SAID.  NEW COAL-FIRED POWER PLANTS MUST INSTALL TECHNOLOGY TO CAPTURE CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS.  ROBERTS SAID THIS TECHNOLOGY IS NOT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE.  HE SAID THE PROPOSED EPA RULES AND THAT AGENCY’S DECISION ON THEM WILL ASSURE THAT THE U.S. WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER COAL-FIRED FACILITY.

HAFIZ SAEED

      THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT IS OFFERING A $ 10 MILLION REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE CAPTURE OF HAFIZ SAEED, A PAKISTANI MILITANT LEADER ACCUSED OF PLANNING THE 2008 TERRORIST ATTACK IN MUMBAI, INDIA, WHERE 166 PEOPLE WERE SHOT AND MURDERED AT A HOTEL, INCLUDING SIX U.S CITIZENS.  THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAID SAEED SPREADS IDEOLOGY ADVOCATING TERRORISM, SPREADS VIRULENT RHETORIC CONDEMNING THE UNITED STATES, INDIA, ISRAEL AND OTHER PERCEIVED ENEMIES.

     SAEED, WHO IS KNOWN TO BE IN PAKISTAN, APPEARED ON A BBC TV NEWS PROGRAM THIS WEEK AND SAID:  “WHY NOT GIVE THE MONEY TO ME, STATE DEPARTMENT?  I KNOW WHERE I AM EVERYDAY.”

 

          PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS ANGERED MANY IN THE LEGAL COMMUNITY, EVEN LIBERALS, WHEN HE MADE COMMENTS MONDAY THAT SEEMED TO THREATEN AND WARN THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES NOT TO OVERTURN HIS HEALTH CARE LAW.  HE SAID THAT THE JUSTICES SHOULD NOT CONSIDER HIS LAW WITH JUDICIAL ACTIVISM OR JUDICIAL RESTRAINT, ADDING THAT A GROUP OF UNELECTED PEOPLE (THE COURT) SHOULD NOT OVERTURN A PASSED LAW.  IT IS RARE WHEN A PRESIDENT COMMENTS ON A CASE CURRENTLY BEING CONSIDERED BY THE SUPREME COURT.  SOME SAY OBAMA ACTED LIKE A MAFIA DON, WARNING THE JUDGES TO GO HIS WAY, OR THE HIGHWAY.

 

 

THE LATEST

THE ARMSTRONG SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS IS CLOSING THE FORD CITY HIGH SCHOOL TO BUILD A NEW SCHOOL, WHICH WILL RAISE TAXES, MAKE A SELECT FEW RICHER AND LITERALLY BANKRUPT FORD CITY, BECAUSE THE BOROUGH WILL LOSE MONEY FROM THOSE INVOLVED WITH OPERATING THE SCHOOL.  THOSE INVOLVED WITH WANTING TO DESTROY FORD CITY HIGH SCHOOL AND ITS HISTORY ARE REP. JEFF PYLE, SEN. DON WHITE AND A CONFUSED FORD CITY BOROUGH COUNCIL, WHOSE MEMBERS HAVE NOT SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE SCHOOL CLOSING.
NAKED FORD CITY PA HAS TOLD THE ASD DIRECTORS THAT THEY MAY CLOSE THE SCHOOL, BUT THOSE WHO VOTE TO DO SO WILL PAY AN EMOTIONAL PRICE.  THE ASD DIRECTORS ARE GIVING THE FINGER TO FORD CITY AND COUNTY TAXPAYERS.  THEY HAVE SHOWN NO RESPECT OR CONCERN ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING.  SO, NAKED FORD CITY PA IS GIVING A FINGER TO THOSE WHO VOTE TO CLOSE THE SCHOOL.
NAKED FORD CITY PA HAS BEEN TOLD AND SHOWN SOME INFORMATION THAT ONE SCHOOL DIRECTOR IS INVOLVED WITH SCIENTOLOGY.  IT’S BEEN SAID THAT HE HAS MADE HIS EMPLOYEES READ PAGES FROM SCIENTOLOGY GURU L. RON HUBBARD’S BOOK, “DIANENTICS.”  THIS DIRECTOR ALSO WAS ALLEGEDLY SEEN USING COKE IN AN OFFICE BUILDING DURING THE 1990s.
THERE IS MORE TO COME, AND NAMES AND PROOF WILL BE EXPOSED.
 
 
 

FORD CITY HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM FROM 1970s. THERE WILL NO LONGER BE ANY FORD CITY HIGH SPORTS TEAMS, BECAUSE CORRUPT ASD BOARD MEMBERS ARE CLOSING FORD CITY HIGH SCHOOL.

 
   THOSE WHO WANT TO RE-ELECT OBAMA BETTER START SAVING THEIR MONEY, BECAUSE HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION WANT GAS PRICES TO RISE TO OVER $8 A GALLON, SO PEOPLE USE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCES.   OBAMA DOES NOT CARE WHO IT HURTS, AS LONG AS THE U.S. GETS OFF FOSSIL FUELS.  PRICES FOR EVERYTHING, EXCEPT WAGES AND SALARIES, WILL DOUBLE.
     BUT THAT MIGHT NOT MATTER, SINCE OBAMA IS HELPING MUSLIMS EXPAND THEIR GRIP ON THE WORLD.  HE ACTUALLY APOLOGIZED TO AFGHANISTAN OFFICIALS FOR U.N SOLDIERS BURNING QURANS AT A U.S. BASE.  HE WILL NOT HELP ISRAEL STOP IRAN FROM MAKING A NUCLEAR BOMB, WHICH IT WILL USE ON THE JEWS AND OTHERS.  THIS MASS MURDER WILL START A WORLD WAR, BUT OBAMA DOES NOT CARE.  
     SO, WORRYING ABOUT GAS PRICES MIGHT BE STUPID, SINCE THERE WILL BE NO CARS OR PEOPLE LEFT ON THE EARTH, ANYWAY, BECAUSE OF OBAMA’S PRO-ISLAM BELIEFS.

BEWARE! THE WINDMILLS COME, QUIETLY

     ARMSTRONG COUNTY RESIDENTS SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON THEIR COMMISSIONERS, BECAUSE IF THEY ARE NOT WATCHING THEM, THEY COULD WAKE UP TO SEE WINDMILL TURBINES ON HILLSIDES, WOODS USED FOR HUNTING, AND ON FARMLAND, THANKS TO GLOBAL WARMING BELIEVERS IN HARRISBURG.

     MOST PENNSYLVANIA RESIDENTS DO NOT KNOW THAT THEY HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO PURCHASE ELECTRICITY FROM EITHER AN ELECTRIC COMPANY OR FROM WINDMILL FARMS, MOST OF WHICH ARE LOCATED IN THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN PART OF THE COMMONWEALTH.  THERE ARE ABOUT 20 WINDMILL FARMS IN USE.  HOWEVER, A WINDMILL COMPANY IN BUCKS COUNTY, REP. GREG VITALI (D-DELAWARE), THE PENNSYLVANIA SIERRA CLUB, EPA PEOPLE, A NEW ORGANIZATION CALLED “CHOOSE PA WIND,” AND OTHERS IN HARRISBURG ARE PLANNING TO PUT WINDMILL FARMS IN EVERY COUNTY.  THEY SAY PEOPLE WILL HAVE AN OPTION, BUT THE UGLY TOWERS WITH BLADES WILL GO ON THE PROPERTIES OF BOROUGHS AND PEOPLE WHO WANT THEM.

     WINDMILL ELECTRICITY-USERS PAY THE SAME AMOUNT, OR HIGHER, FOR BEING GLOBAL WARMING BELIEVERS.  THAT IS THE REASON FOR THE WINDMILLS, SUPPORTERS SAY.  THEY SAY WINDMILLS WILL STOP THE COMMONWEALTH’S USE OF FOSSIL FUELS, CLEAN THE AIR AND STOP GLOBAL WARMING.  THEY ARE NOT TELLING YOU THAT THE WINDMILL INDUSTRY WILL MAKE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, SOME OF WHICH WILL GO TO AL GORE, WHO IS HEAVILY INVESTED IN WINDMILL TECHNOLOGY.

     ARMSTRONG COUNTY COMMISSIONERS SHOULD BE TOLD IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE THAT WINDMILL FARMS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE ON THE BEAUTIFUL LAND THAT SURROUNDS THIS SECTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH, IF YOU BELIEVE SO.   IF YOU LIKE TO LOOK AT TALL TOWERS WITH BLADES, THEN TELL THE COMMISSIONERS THAT YOU WANT WINDMILLS ON THE HILLSIDES ACROSS FROM THE COUNTY SEAT, KITTANNING, ACROSS THE RIVER FROM FORD CITY, AND ON ALL WOODED AREAS THAT OVERLOOK THE ALLEGHENY RIVER.

STUDYING FORD CITY’S RAILROAD STATION DEPOT

 
     THE DATE OF THIS PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD FORD CITY DEPOT IMAGE IS UNKNOWN.  USE YOUR SCREEN ZOOM TO CHECK DETAILS.  THE LONGER YOU LEAVE THE IMAGE ON, THE CLEARER IT GETS.
 
     IF YOU IGNORE THE HILLSIDE TREES ON THE LEFT, THE DEPOT LOOKS LIKE IT COULD BE LOCATED IN SOME DUSTY, SMALL TEXAS TOWN.  NOTICE THE HORSES ATTACHED TO A WAGON, AND A MAN EITHER UNLOADING OR LOADING.  WE CAN ONLY GUESS IF THE HORSES HAD NAMES.  THE MAN MIGHT HAVE LIVED IN FORD CITY, MANORVILLE, ROSSTON, KITTANNING OR THE AREA THAT WOULD LATER BECOME FORD CLIFF.  HE COULD HAVE BEEN A PPG EMPLOYEE, A FARMER OR RAILROAD WORKER.
 
     NOTICE THE FORD CITY SIGN AT THE END OF THE ELONGATED ROOF, HELD-UP BY TEN WOODEN POSTS.  SEE THE STEEP STEPS LEADING TO THE AREA BELOW THE ROOF.  NOTICE SOME TYPE OF MACHINERY AT THE NORTHERN END, TO THE LEFT, OF THE AREA BELOW THE ROOD.  SEE THE WIND-BLOWN PAPERS SCATTERED HERE AND THERE BY THE DEPOT.  OBSERVE THE FIVE SQUARE OPENINGS IN THE BRICKS OR CEMENT THAT HOLD THE TEN POSTS.  THESE WERE FOR DRAINAGE.  THE AREA BELOW THE OPENINGS MUST HAVE BEEN MUDDY AFTER STORMS OR SPRING THAWS.  MANY WOMEN’S LONG DRESSES AND MEN’S FANCY SUIT-PANTS MUST HAVE BEEN RUINED AFTER LEAVING A TRAIN AND WALKING IN THE MUCK, HEADING INTO FORD CITY.  NOTICE THE SMALL ELONGATED ROOF AT THE NORTHERN END OF THE DEPOT.  TODAY, TO THE RIGHT OF THE ROOF, WOULD BE FORD STREET, BY A FEW FEET HERE AND THERE.
 
     THE STRUCTURE OF THE DEPOT SEEMS TO BE STONE.  NOTICE THE STONES USED FOR A BARRICADE, JUST RIGHT OF THE HORSES.  THE STONES GO STRAIGHT, THEN TURN LEFT AND END BY THE DEPOT’S BOTTOM WALL.  IF YOU LOOK AT THE WALL, IT APPEARS THAT ITS CONTENTS HAVE THE SAME ANGULAR DESIGN AND CUT AS THE BARRICADE STONES.  BUT THE DEPOT COULD HAVE BEEN MADE OF WOOD.
 
     NOTICE THE TWO-STORY BUILDING AT THE RIGHT, ALONG THE DIRTY, DUSTY ROAD THAT WOULD LATER BECOME THIRD AVENUE.  THE TILTED TELEPHONE OR TELEGRAPH POLES IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING MIGHT HAVE HAD WIRES THAT CONNECTED TO THE STRUCTURE AND PPG OFFICES.  WHAT WAS THAT BUILDING?  A HOTEL OR MOTEL FOR RAILROAD PASSENGERS?  APARTMENTS FOR FORD CITY PEOPLE OR PPG EXECUTIVES?  WAS IT A STORE OR PART OF PPG?  IT SEEMS TO BE MADE OF BRICK, BUT IT COULD BE WOOD.  IT LOOKS LIKE A SIDEWALK STOPS AT THE RIGHT OF THE BUILDING.
 
     IT SEEMS TO BE A FOGGY, MISTY DAY; PROBABLY AN EARLY SUMMER MORNING.  OR WAS THAT MIST REALLY SMOKE FROM PPG?  ONLY THE DEAD THAT LIVED AT THAT TIME KNOW.
 
 
 
 
      
 

Today, this area of 10th Street and Third Avenue is where the two-story building would have been. It may have been in parking-lot area.

You can see train-station dying in this 1977 photo. The station could have been rebuilt with the help of Amish workers and volunteers. It could have been a tourist attraction, but council thought people would rather look at a red-brick wall.
Bland, boring clock-wall now sits on the area of the former Ford City PA Railroad Station.
