Encore Boston Harbor, Plainridge Park Casino and MGM Springfield temporarily closed

https://turnto10.com/news/coronavirus/encore-boston-harbor-casino-plainridge-park-and-mgn-temporarily-closed
Several casinos across Massachusetts have temporarily been closed amid coronavirus concerns.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission made the announcement on Saturday, noting that they unanimously voted to “a temporary suspension of operations” at Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville, and MGM Springfield.
“An expeditious and orderly shutdown process is underway,” according to a statement from the MGC. “This decision will be re-evaluated in two weeks.”
The MGC previously announced that a patron at Encore Boston Harbor has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
The MGC said the person visited the casino on March 5, with the Commission becoming aware of the positive test on Thursday.
Health officials have been notified and are assessing the situation, according to the MGC.
"Encore has reported that this individual was present at the casino for one hour and had contact while there with a small number of individuals, currently determined to be seven," a statement noted. "Encore has reported that all of these individuals have been identified and alerted. DPH recommends that Encore continue its enhanced sanitation practices. Additionally, Encore has reported that, out of an abundance of caution, all identified individuals have agreed to self-quarantine measures."
The Boston Globe reported that the individual is Utah Jazz player Donovan Mitchell.

Question 3: Yes or No?

Personally, I am voting No on 3. My reasons being, I like going to casinos. They make for a very fun weekend playing slots, poker, shopping, and eating.
It also directly affects me and my job. I'm an actor for a company. We perform at casinos a few times a year. Those shows pay extremely well. I do not want to miss out on that work. We have the chance for the casinos to become regular venues.
Why should we ship our money out to other states? We should be keeping that money here, to help improve our towns. Especially Everett and Springfield.
One thing that really ticks me off about the repealers: If question 3 passes, what now? How do we create that many jobs now? What are your plans? Where are your investors? Do we have to use state money?
The last poll I saw in the Herald 10/31 showed 59% Voting No, and 34% voting Yes
Edit: Question 3 has been rejected! Casinos are coming to Massachusetts!

The sound of ballroom music resounded throughout the air, and many well-dressed patrons danced happily along. For a high-class, high-profile event, everything was going as planned, except for the fact that a menacing feeling clung to the air. As the night progressed, the tension in the room was increasing for reasons unknown, and was nearing a boiling point.
It all began with Mr. and Mrs. Johnson. The elderly couple danced inside a circle towards the center of the ballroom, but Mr. Johnson had had a few too many drinks, and was becoming sloppier as the night progressed. Then, Mr. Johnson swung Mrs. Johnson around too abruptly, causing her to fall and step on another woman’s, Mrs. Garyburg’s, big toe. Mrs. Garyburg’s painful wail rung throughout the air, and Mr. Garyburg, her husband, became all “puffed up” and defensive. Mr. Garyburg and Mr. Johnson traded a few insults, but when Mr. Garyburg called Mrs. Johnson a “breaching land-whale”, Mr. Johnson lost it and punched him squarely in the face. Mr. Garyburg flew back and bumped into yet another couple, the Oldriches, who instantly became enraged as well. Like dominoes, erupting outward from the fighting couples at the center, the entire ballroom erupted in a colossal brawl.
Dr. Nick Mason watched idly from the bar as the events unfolded.
“What the hell is going on here…? These people are losing their goddamn minds. This… is this a Stand Attack?”
In another corner of the ballroom, on a balcony overlooking the multitude of people stood an observant cheetah, who seemed pretty out of place. He was interested in the intensity of the emotions in the room.
“These people… they’re going nuts! Why are they getting so angry at each other all of a sudden…?”
DJ’s eyes slowly locked onto the sole man in the crowd not going ballistic, a man with… eerily similar clothing to him, except in the style made for humans.
Dr. Mason’s eyes locked with the cheetah’s as well, going wide upon processing the sight.
“Is… is that a lab coat? With sequins all over it? How… garish. That must be who’s causing this, nobody else would dress in that style.”
As DJ hopped down from the balcony, the scientist readied for the battle ahead, drawing his [Dark Side of the Moon] out into the open.
Both were there to claim an important piece of information, vital to figuring out the mystery of [Once in a Lifetime]!
With these Bizarre circumstances, the second leg of the journey begins!
OPEN THE GAME!
 
Location:
The Grand Ballroom, Bellagio Casino Resort, Las Vegas. 45,000 sqaure feet, and filled with guests. Those guests are currently… very agitated, a massive brawl just beginning to break out! Our combatants are stationed on the other sides of the hall, DJ in the north and Nick Mason in the South respectively. Our “parcel” is currently somewhere in this crowd, but it’s been passed around a lot, and not even WE’RE sure where exactly it ended up. Just search everyone until you find it I guess… but make sure you’re the one to leave with the parcel, and not the other guy!
There's a wild Stand User on the loose here, and they're making everyone angry somehow! This includes our participants, so they won't exactly be the calmest at the moment.

Here's how I'm probably going to vote. How about you?

Senate: Markey (democrat)
I like Markey on everything but gun control... and while I like my guns, his Republican counterpart is wishy-washy about the issue anyway, and definitely a bad choice on economic and social issues.
GovernoLt. Gov: McCormick/Post (independent)
I liked his responses on the League of Women Voters site, specifically that he seems to be a fiscal conservative but doesn't want to gut government like the Tea Party. He wants to focus on early childhood education, and I agree with him that that's a really good place to invest public money. On healthcare, he's identified specific ways of reducing costs and improving care without rushing to the far right of the spectrum and trying to gut the state's healthcare system. I think his experience in venture capital would be well suited here, as he knows how to increase organizational efficiency with laser focus. Along with every other candidate he's said he supports a waiver for the Affordable Care Act, but he stated he wanted an "innovation waiver", which I can only hope implies he doesn't want to refuse the entire ACA as that'd be throwing money away. Overall he seems to be a pretty well balanced candidate.
I'm against Coakely because she's vehemently anti-gun (which I know is a positive to most of you, probably), but more importantly, in her time as AG she's refused to prosecute almost any Democratic politicians. She's an old school Democratic operator, and is the worst kind of you-rub-my-back-and-i'll-rub-yours politician. Springfield's rife with political corruption, but it's gone unnoticed under her watch. Chicopee's last mayor never seemed to want for money (or have trouble getting loans), despite going through bankruptcy and taking trips to Hawaii every few months. But he's a democrat, so no interest. And from outside my locality, there's the whole hubbub surrounding her refusal to prosecute Sal Dimasi, until the Feds had to come in and do it for her. She's okay on education, but mostly talks in platitudes, and given her background as a party apparatchik I don't believe she has the will to really push through meaningful changes.
I'm against Baker primarily because he wants to scrap Obamacare/ACA entirely in MA, under the guise of "its interfering with our current system", but in reality it's just typical Republican hatred for state healthcare, as the ACA has actually expanded the coverage the state is able to offer by a wide margin. No governor should be turning down federal dollars. I'm also not thrilled with his education focus being on vocational programs. MA has some of the best higher education in the world, we should be focusing our efforts on getting kids there.
Attorney General: John Miller (Republican)
As a primary reason for supporting him, he's the only alternative to Coakley's protege, the current assistant AG, Maura Healey. As I mentioned earlier, political corruption in the Democratic party has gotten a free pass under Coakley, and I'm not confident that Coakley's right-hand-gal is going to change that policy.
As a secondary reason, I'm supporting Miller because he's said he'd remove the awful gray area around gun purchases in this state that the prior AG's created with their "Advisory Opinions", which in essence create a huge gray area allowing the AG to selectively ban guns they don't like, regardless of the actual wording of the relevant laws. As an aside, regulations like this make it illegal to sell certain types of guns to properly trained and licensed citizens through gun dealerships -- yet I can, as a duly licensed private citizen, buy one of these guns from a cop (who is still able to buy these guns because of his profession) and perform the transaction in my local Wal Mart parking lot. That gun is now grandfathered in and I can sell it to any other private citizen. And remember, these guns are no different in capability than any other guns currently legal to buy in Massachusetts, the AG just thinks they're especially dangerous because Glocks are the brand of gun used in every action movie. That's how crazy gun laws are in this state. I support expanded background checks and other moderate gun control, I'm not an NRA shill, but it's stuff like that that drives me nuts.
Secretary of State: Danny Factor (Green-Rainbow) or David D’Arcangelo (Republican)
Anyone but Galvin! The incumbent, William Galvin, has been a dinosaur. He refuses public records requests citing the nebulous "state reasons" as an excuse, charges enormous document fees for FOIA/public records requests, and has dragged his feet through nearly 20 years in this position without making any headway into digitizing and streamlining the states public records. He's an anachronism and is the exact kind of entrenched political cronyism that is keeping Massachusetts back. I think David has more experience, but Danny has more heart. Either of them, or a pothole, would be a better choice for Secretary of State than Galvin.
Treasurer: Mike Heffernan (Republican)
He's got a Bachelors in Economics from Georgetown and a Masters in Finance from NYU. He's an advocate for adopting the UN's Principle's for Responsible Investing, which incorporate social justice and environmental concerns into the decision making process, but without jumping head first into divestment as his Democratic opponent is advocating. Maybe it'll come to that, but I'd rather the guy in charge of the state pensions takes a more conservative approach at first.
Auditor: Suzanne Bump (Democrat)
I think she's done a pretty good job over the last term, at least not bad enough to warrant her ouster. Although, her opponent (Saint Aubin) is the only accountant running for the office, which seems like a pretty important qualification for the states chief auditor. I'm most ambivalent about this race.
Question 1: Repeal the gas tax inflation indexing?
Yes. The gas tax is one of the most regressive taxes still kicking. There are no good public transit systems in western MA, so your average working poor drive to work. Increasing their taxes is silly. They end up paying a higher proportion of their income towards fuel costs than middle class or rich people, which is the opposite effect that most people in this state want. This is on top of the silliness of taxing private citizens for funds to repair road infrastructure to begin with, when 95% of road damage is caused by heavy trucks. Same deal with tolls. Don't subsidize businesses with a tax that preferentially hurts the poorest people in the state.
Question 2: Expand the bottle deposit law?
No. It's pretty annoying to have to horde my empty cans in the pantry for a week or two before making a trip to the redemption center, adding plastic bottles on top of that is going to be ridiculous. It would be fantastic if I could just crush my aluminum cans and throw them in my curbside recycling bin. But if I can't do that, at least don't make it worse by making me hold on to all my plastic bottles, too.
The state should work on expanding its curbside recycling program, not making my house look like a homeless person is squatting there.
Question 3: Prohibit Casinos?
Yes. As outlined here. TLDR: they create few, shitty jobs; they act as an effective tax on the poorest and most vulnerable members of society; they suck money out of the area and into the pockets of out of state investors.
Question 4: Universal paid sick time?
Yes. This is a basic protection that workers should have had years ago. It creates job stability, family stability, reduces the likelihood of people being victimized by payday lenders, and works out to a very minimal annual cost for employers. Definitely worth it.
So, thoughts? How should I vote differently? Got any info about candidates I missed, or got wrong? How are you going to vote?
Here's a good site for comparing candidates, from the League of Women Voters: http://lwvma.org/voting-and-election-information/voters-guide-to-statewide-offices-2014/

Casino Bill

I don't really understand why we all have to vote on the casino since we already have voted and passed the casino bill. We collectively voted that we want a casino in Springfield, but some people opposed to the casino somehow got the bill back on the table? It doesn't make much sense, and it seems unfair to the companies that have ALREADY started building and spent hundreds of thousands because they were under the impression the bill was passed. Thoughts?

    • Search for Yonkers or Bronx I'm pretty sure house in Yonkers over the Bronx if big was around mayushii timeframe but anyway that I think is the key to this whole thing the whole network the whole network with the Awans I believe is going to be
    • Now it wasn't Akhtar trust no it wasn't
    • Now it was like Shiva or it wasn't it was like pan Jeeva but it wasn't that's I don't think that's right
    • So if you go back to whatever day I think was the wrong time my son's graduation that that's the day of
    • So he could just give hey everybody if somebody could just give you that hint that would be great I don't want to make this long I just wanted to put out that request anyway it was it reminded me
    • So much of this golf trainer thing no bid contract all done and BlackBerry's all done off-book potentially black-budget not just one of those weird things

    • Again I don't know if you remember those videos that I've produced but
    • A boy soldier Alpha Jalloh was a boy soldier from Sierra Leone?
    • I thought he was from Guinea
    • I thought his training base was in Guinea but they've moved them all around all along at Western shelf as the Africa starts turning to the north coast line I believe he's from Nigeria but they use the Nigerian kids to destabilize all along the gold and diamond coasts there
    • So like Sierra Leone cote debride Burkina Faso Guinea the whole crew that whole crew from Nigeria was used to destabilize that whole diamond and Gold Coast
    • Yeah sorry I can't do anything about the network and I don't have the I don't have the Wi-Fi yet so I apologize
    • Yeah Nigeria I'm pretty darn sure Jolla was pointed for Niger the whole Nigeria story hasn't really broke yet and I didn't really want to say this until I had proof
    • But I actually believe Jolla went to school in Ohio
    • Anyway he went to school in Ohio
    • And like what they do is they tell these kids oh actually you're the heir apparent not not Alpha Jalloh but this other kid who I believe had a Bentley
    • And they stole a Bentley for originally
    • Anyway then they had this entourage come to the same school
    • So like five or six kids that come to school kind of like his bodyguards when they come to the United States
    • And anyway they grew up with him the whole time and I think you're gonna see he did a 205 day 205 yeah if you can look at day 205 some day that day
    • I remember making a film here looking out at the Hudson just like this and the guy from Scotland called me
    • And he had been working with Craig Murray and he had been working with someone in the British government that was fairly high up that had been a prime minister
    • And he had said that hey oh by the way you got this Pakistani ISI firm working a new Treasury Department with these Blackberries and they're do most of the stuff most of the book work is done by the book GSA bid it out lowest bidder or whatever qualified bid that kind of thing not JCL I don't think oh that's JCL person but then anyway there's this black book stuff that they give for no bid contracts out by this Pakistani ISI firm that you have that's embedded itself into here G say
    • So I remember oh my gosh dishes Jack Lew this is the GSA this is the this is the infiltration that the this is the infiltration of the Treasury that the Awans are working on
    • And I didn't follow up on I feel so bad about a date to a button well anyway have a look at day 205 have a look at that day's things and if you could give me that give me that firm that would be awesome
    • I'm so sorry I am on the road today
    • And I just had to see my son before he took off for the west coast
    • So thank you very much it's not gonna come here right away whoever couldn't research that, that would be awesome you
  • Meet Michael McMahon, FBI Special Agent and Vetting Whistleblower
    • Good afternoon everyone
    • You're at Bryant Park again here in beautiful New York City they have concerts looks like Thursday Friday and Saturday I think maybe Sunday even as well
    • One of my favorite spots one of the favorite spots of Mark Twain of all people
    • 42nd and sixth Avenue is that right and Avenue of the Americas
    • But if you want to say it of course when you come to New York always go visit the New York Public Library
    • One of the things I asked about before I got in a train to go see my son I haven't seen him in such a long time
    • And it's always funny to see your son in a doctor's outfit in your life another thing same kid that I diapered
    • {{incomprehensible}}...But he's quite a good doctor
    • And anyway Michael McMahon Michael McMahon
    • One of the great things about this job--somebody at fox business stopped me and then interviewed me in Times Square today and it was Fox famous Maria Bartiromo
    • Here's a sharp shout out to Maria Bartiromo
    • I didn't
    • She broke the law brothers story really that made the mainstream media
    • Luke Rosiak of course had that story with with the print media with Daily Caller
    • But Maria Bartiromo at Fox Business was really the first one who broke it and television
    • Anyway the person asked me to question: what job do you think you would like the most?
    • And I said the job where you do exactly what you want to do and and what does that mean you
    • Well it's telling the truth
    • This is what job you what would be the worst consideration and getting a job?
    • I said well doing what other people think you want you want you to do
    • And being true to yourself looking inside your heart and doing what you think you do best
    • So a lot of all my decisions are made that way
    • I would have said that as an answer if I didn't believe that
    • So that one of those times was no conversation I just had right over here two minutes ago with Michael McMahon
    • He's now he's in California but he was a special agent with the FBI in Virginia
    • Now it's an undisclosed location that he was in in charge of
    • But he was in charge of OPM
    • OPM is the Office of Personnel Management and he was in charge his unit his unit was in charge in the Virginia area same place he Awans are
    • He left since then because of being a whistleblower
    • But the reason why he left was because he said there was six hundred sixty thousand checks that had been just processed through because they were paid on volume, not on quality
    • They were paid on quantity not on quality
    • So I had to know more about this story
    • I had to talk to him more about that
    • And explain and find out how are you only at the FBI a year--how did you get so high up GS-15
    • You got promoted seven months in
    • But he said I started as a GS-13 I had a stellar record in Iraq excuse me at CENTCOM I believe was Iraq
    • He's a Navy officer
    • He had an outstanding career as a navy officer serving our country
    • And he came in and he said hey you've got a problem here
    • There's two parts to vetting
    • One service is called name check this is the type of thing that I tweeted out right before I got on the train up to to the Bronx
    • This is the the easy step where that someone has multiple Social Security numbers
    • Multiple if they were committed crimes multiple offender IDs where they're trying to keep their their ID secret
    • That's one part of the service here ran--name check
    • So just name check is what it is a name check
    • And he said basically why do name check if you're not really checking?
    • Why even use the verb check if you're not checking you're not checking
    • Obviously they were not checking, because the Awan's got through and they were not checking
    • And you should be checking year after year Okay. and he said ninety-eight ninety-nine percent of the people that work for the government go through this OPM
    • So there is some kind of checking and as you go higher and higher obviously there's more and more involved FBI checking
    • So he has gone to Congress
    • He wrote a letter to Grassley
    • They brought him in front of the I believe it was a Judiciary Committee in the Senate
    • He had three hour testimony
    • It was kind of a here he comes there he goes story well we wrote our letter we're signing off now--vetting is a problem
    • This has to go out to the President of the United States because here is a man who also is a badge of honor
    • Who also had Mike Boyce said this cannot go on
    • What's in these emails of these 50 Chiefs that what they saw this cannot go on this is not the way we run things in the United States of America
    • This is an FBI guy that said that
    • Now of course what do you think happened?
    • Immediately everyone started treating him like dirt when he was a whistleblower
    • Even though we were supposed to put in a stronger whistle protect protection act we really didn't
    • And he was basically drummed out of the service for standing up for what he believed in was a very serious national security risk
    • So again, I can't do what other people want me to do
    • I can't I gotta be myself
    • If I start trying to be somebody I'm not, it's just not gonna work. I have to be me.
    • If something bothers me whether you whether that's a good thing or a bad thing I have to say it
    • I have to say it straight to the people to the American people straight to the to the world and let the chips fall where they may
    • And that is exactly what Michael McMahon did
    • He did not care about promotion or anything else other than security of the United States of America
    • If Mike I can tell already 20 minutes of speaking with Michael McMahon--if he would have been on at the switch and to help, the Awans would have never happened
    • There's no doubt in my mind the Awan thing would be something that's completely behind us
    • Now I don't think PTECH would have happened either I don't think a Pakistani firm with given the exclusive rights to giving out these exclusive contracts with these Blackberries--you can take over and make a deal here's the secret secure blackberry that Anthony Weiner's trusted staff configured over there in the corner for most of our contracts are GSA contracts
    • We'll do it above board
    • We'll have open bidding everyone will compete
    • They will stay up late at night doing proposals like I used to do as a sales guy
    • But for our special group for our "pay-to-play group" you may as well call it "pay to blackberry"
    • We'll give you a blackberry, you can if you get in on the bid as a token almost all senses that's a kind of a almost like a pay-to-play token these Blackberries
    • PTECH Lori found in two minutes boom I forget I'm away from my laptop
    • Lori found it in two minutes
    • PTECH is the company we're coming back to it because this is going to as I said before as these strings start coming apart and it just keeps bringing more and more
    • Jack Lou PTECH coming at you pro you left too many footprints too many footprints we're gonna have expert witnesses coming forward
    • I've had several calls on the lawsuit already today several attorneys already saying let's do this thing let's really go after JTTF
    • It's way worse than you think it is
    • Everybody coming back at me going it is the DOD it's not like the DOD it's not influenced by DoD
    • It's maybe Michael's not a special agent I have not even had a chance to vent Michael right other than 20 different people better oh oh
    • That was Michael say that he was way high up not a special agent Okay.
    • Not an SAIC I apologize she was not doing a little office
    • He ran OPM I love this thanks Michael
    • So online journalism, online correction that's not I don't need to issue a retraction
    • I just need to blush and say yes he was way high up used a GS-15
    • So people in the government certainly know what that means
    • So we're gonna get to know Michael over time and I also want in-depth way interview the kind of interviews that Jason Goodman does
    • Where he really asked those great questions I mean I saw just just a plug Jason for a little bit
    • I saw some incredible interviewing techniques that Jason just never got a chance to show too much because of so much stuff going on
    • And so much news has been
    • So much running around and when you see this Lionel interview I've been watching it a day to day we've been 20 hours a day literally for the last whatever three months
    • When you see this interview when it comes out
    • I know he hates me to put pressure on it's it's gets a great interview and you're going to have other interviews like that coming out for Charles Ortel
    • And you're gonna have out of the interviews like that I hope it's gonna do my interview my second because I want that Braverman out there
    • So anyway Lori thank you
    • You're just I mean I am dirt compared to Lori
    • She's the brains she's just a Brain right it's right back here and she says it kind of reminds me of that broadcast news with William Hurt,
    • And then somebody was saying the x-15 afterburners have been known to go out it's bad weather situations that he was getting the air pieces he say
    • So that's all for right
    • Now I want you to get to know a Michael McMahon
    • He tweeted back to me directly I didn't know whether to take this or flip it over to crowdsource the truth
    • He got back meat to me directly
    • So I felt the obligation of telling his story
    • Again I like crowd source of truth to continue to develop this
    • I think Jason would just be a fantastic four camera interview like we did for Lionel
    • Like we did for Dr. Corsi
    • Like we did for Charles or talent who knows
    • So anyway oh gosh that was Michael sending me a thing about records management
    • A Lot of the questions I asked he said I'm sorry I can't answer that
    • I'm sorry I can't answer it
    • Sorry that's classified
    • So this is a person who still has a very high esteem for the secrecy of the people of our country that have worked for our government
    • Now you probably also remember the OPM hack
    • The OPM hack where 22 million records were hacked
    • We don't know who hacked them but it could be a hacking group I mean I'm just guessing
    • Cozy Bears
    • It could be a hacking group on Capitol Hill maybe maybe
    • I think I know where the records are kept.
    • I think it's DISA, near Springfield but I won't speak publicly for you Jason I apologize
    • I'm gonna sign off now I just wanted to say
    • So long from Central Park that's at Park Bryant Park caught me
    • Look forward to getting to know Michael McMahon's better over time
    • We're not gonna quit on learning who's Michael McMahon is
    • And the issues that we had with vetting and name search, and it's the nature excuse me until we're done
  • Day 293 - Adding Awan Car Ratlines To Mix
    • Okay. Good morning everybody
    • So up here in the Bronx day 293 and I wanted to add in kind of the car ratlines that show how the cars are used to move DU and WP
    • The D U we're going to talk about the depleted uranium and the ring there is gonna be mostly I believe Virginia through South Carolina, potentially Savannah
    • And then I think the white phosphorus is gonna be mainly Florida, especially the Port of Tampa the Jacksonville
    • I'm not quite sure about yet, but we'll get there when time allows, but let's focus mainly on the Awan brothers piece of this in Virginia
    • Again this is all under kind of a DynCorp construct
    • So there's gonna be West Africans and New York would be stealing the cars
    • And then there's going to be the Awans having the middle piece of the ratline
    • And then there's gonna be people downstream as well
    • So I'm just gonna focus on the Elan piece of this and the DynCorp ring again where the DynCorp picks up and where the Awans pick up is kind of under dying for is running the whole ratline from beginning in the Awans could be just the middle piece how much they know Alpha Jolla in the beginning of the ratline is remains to be seen
    • They certainly are Alpha Jolla certainly is in DC quite a bit awry in the well right
    • Now as a matter of fact
    • So we're gonna talk about cash weapons cars espionage that's really a replay of Iran-Contra to matter of fact it may be the same Iron contra just it was just hidden better they just changed the name and hid it better
    • And you could throw drugs in here as well I'll bring into your Javita in a little bit with that drug operation but right
    • Now I'm going to just focus mainly on the spy ring and a car ring
    • So so right here is the twenty million dollar payment I talked about yesterday for the UAE to the this DC think tank which is the Middle East Institute
    • These are always just very thinly veiled covers that's a kind of a rent payment for running the car ring
    • And it's the same old game with just drugs in weapons out--very simple
    • The same as Mena Airport drugs in weapons out
    • Same as Offut Air Force Base has been since then drugs in weapons out
    • I'm gonna go ahead and keep the Twitter feed here
    • Just so you can see how see your name if you're tweeting out and gives it a kind of a metadata timestamping as well that I kind of like
    • So you're gonna have to use that as proof of life
    • I don't really want to do a lot of camera work
    • I'm trying to get away from that and really focus on CSTT to do that
    • So and also I just want to upload videos
    • I really don't like the pressure of going live but well here we are
    • So the Washington Navy artists I mentioned I believe 148 buildings around 178 buildings I think there's a huge store of old weapons that need to be disposed
    • They're not really being disposed they're being resold and parts all over the world
    • That's the general piece of all this they can sit there for years and years and years and nobody's gonna bother them
    • I think DU weapons actually spill all the way back to the world war two an experimentation in the 50s and really start developing in the 70s 80s and 90s
    • So there's huge stockpiles here they're not being disposed of
    • Somebody's making money to dispose of those I really haven't got that part of the ratline
    • But the key here is as they go down the the Potomac here where the Anacostia splits with the Potomac, I believe the load point is that National Harbor
    • This weapons ratline is gonna be here at National Harbor
    • And I know this has been turned into a commercial area with a with the G4S looking over all the operations here up there on the hill
    • And now the casino is here the Tangier outlet mall and all that stuff and and
    • So this load point maybe a little bit further up and up the Potomac now a little past Fort Washington in this more secure area in the Navy research labs
    • So I'm just as just general the suit just general
    • But here this Springfield to Woodbridge corridor here with the Awans in the middle of it--that's really gonna be kind of the load the loading area the weapons loading area and I believe the stores aren't going to be at actually the staging area it's gonna be Fort Belvoir
    • And I believe that's how you say it if it still has the French pronunciation
    • But Fort Belvoir I believe you're gonna bring in let's say whatever the munitions are they're gonna be packed and loaded into kind of the same thing you would do it in Amazon warehouse
    • I'm not saying it's an animus on warehouse there specifically--that's a front
    • But maybe you want to look into that
    • But the people that are being recruited are ms-13 they're you're mainly from their kids they're mainly from El Salvador Guatemala
    • I believe the operation would in Woodbridge that Arshad Mahmood ran was basically that getting kids to work here temporary
    • If they talk you can kill them
    • And that's just that simple
    • And then it's a short hop over here for the drivers to just go over here to National Harbor to do the load
    • So I think the loading is somewhere in here
    • Maybe Springfield companies I know Arshad Mahmood had a thing called Goal Transport
    • So there's other transport companies that other wands had ADHD and dropped the D
    • So it's ADH transportation that Naeem Awan had
    • We're gonna end up looking at all these transportation companies
    • But I think the idea is very short haul very short haul drainage over to this load point it's gonna be somewhere along in here somewhere in here
    • And the reason I say that is again some of this conjecture some of its a lot of it's supported with with fact
    • But you want to keep your supply lines as short as possible because every mile that DU travels or sarin travels or the WP you have point a possible interdiction
    • So you really want to limit your possible interdiction points as much as you can
    • Now is skybridge tactical flying to an airport up here, with the white phosphorus, to load WP here as well? Who knows
    • And vice-versa skybridge tactical taking d you down to Tampa and loading there and and Jacksonville loading there
    • Potentially. That makes sense why the separation with purple shovel in Virginia, and the Skybridge tactical being in Florida
    • Now these are all look I believe this is just gonna be the chemring rocket business
    • Now there could be other ammunition other arsenals better weapons payloads that are being supplied but
    • For right now I'm just following CHEMRING just the Chemring
    • Chemring missiles are going to either have DU load I believe or WP load
    • The Florida Chemings are gonna have the WP load and they're mainly gonna be sold to the armies of the Middle East and Africa but mainly Iran and Iraq initially
    • So I think those are gonna be the key customers, because they're most concerned about anti-tank
    • Now here we're gonna move into the vehicle theft ring
    • And this is Bill Warner's work, and the only thing I added to this picture was this Chemring rocket either with a de load here with the uranium sign or that it could be a WP or or I believe also could be a sarin gas load as well
    • But the vehicle is truly a vehicle
    • This is just a storage or a transportation vehicle for this
    • So you have to steal the vehicle which is done I believe in New York New Jersey area
    • There's a little bit of a there I believe there's also going to be a ring in Maryland
    • But the problem when you get so close to your supply line is and people can start putting things together easily defenses are gonna be diplomatic couriers
    • So like in Jalloh's ring there's 22 or 23 up in New York and New Jersey there's a ring of about six that are the entourage of some African Prince, and that's how they get diplomatic status as diplomatic couriers
    • I believe the you're gonna have the two guys that are expendable in this car
    • So not the diplomatic entourage
    • But there's gonna be one or two diplomatic entourage following a line of cars five six seven eight nine cars and the last ones gonna have the diplomatic fence in there
    • And then the cars are going to be brought down I'll show you the control point
    • Documents are prepared I don't know if it's gonna be caravans of six or seven or eight, but safety and numbers kind of thing
    • And then the diplomatic fences are going to drive the cars directly on to the diplomatic containers
    • And they are going to be the diplomatic courier that goes with the containers I think four is that the number that they feel most comfortable with, looking at the shipping documents
    • And really this is after looking at thousands of shipping documents
    • But I think four is the number
    • I'm not sure how many cars that is but I'm gonna say it's about with the size container they have about three or four cars per container
    • So maybe four
    • But I believe that's what's going on if somebody opens container he says hey I'm the the grand Prince of of Lagos personal envoy and that's the princes car and that's his wife's car
    • Okay Great close it up move it on
    • And then it hits the ship mainly going to code every Burkina Faso they they keep breaking these little African countries into pieces
    • So that they can do different ports
    • But if it was Lagos could be all the ports along that southern south western edge of the kind of protuberance of sub africa all right then they're drilling all over Africa and the Middle East from there okay
    • So let's look at the ring on like a map
    • I believe the driver sanctuary is in McLean Islamic centre I don't believe it they actually drive the cars down to the CIA dealership
    • And this is again looking at documents the great thing about Bill Warner is he's tracked everything to the VIN level
    • And there's gonna be GPS data from those sky little GPSes at those little GPS s you can buy those $50 GPS those those hidden GPSes
    • The intelligent thing they did here was they worked with dealerships that were fifty to a hundred miles away at least 50 to 100 miles away
    • So like in the Richmond Virginia they would start picking up dealerships and then they would be the kind of northern Maryland and then then stolen cars from New York
    • So and New Jersey
    • So I believe DynCorp runs the whole ratline from all the way from New York down to the actual shipping point
    • All the way and tracks it all the ship all the way to its final destination to the customer that's getting off the ship
    • But gets a new pickup driver going and driving it all the way to the Embassy of Gabon or wherever the final destination is going
    • And then I believe DynCorp monitors that car though through its entire life as the car of the interior minister of Gabon
    • For their diamonds and gold that that is
    • This is a entire life cycle that's much and managed by DynCorp
    • I believe the front company is going to be LCC or will light bridge communications or it was obviously Imran worked there it's just right across the street here in Tyson's corners
    • I think CELPLAN was out here more cell plan was more of a front company I believe to get home equity lines of credit from the United States Congress
    • So I don't think CELPLAN is actually in this
    • Now did sell plans to sell the Blackberries to everyone along the way as there were drivers
    • So that they would have encrypted communications along the way of course I mean of course you would use that for your communications of all your drivers and coordinating all this stuff and do I think DynCorp did all that of course I do
    • But I'm I'm just saying that CELPLAN beyond that just looked like a way of getting house equity lines of credit to these different cell phone shops that provided this the communications for the ratlines
    • So anyway I do I believe that there was a driver rewards at this Wolftrap yeah maybe who knows
    • I mean everyone wants to think the worst of everybody involved sometimes it's just good good business people running down and doing a ratline in an operation in the country in a foreign country
    • And they're just being good soldiers of their state
    • That's how they think about the thing of their selves is just being patriotic
    • These these reports or of all this fentanyl parties and stuff it will transfer I think greatly exaggerated but I have to report them because there are they have been made
    • So and then the CIA here I believe is just a chop shop point
    • If this somebody something goes along wrong along the way potentially interdiction
    • Law enforcement
    • Or somebody doesn't want the car or something goes wrong I think it goes here and then somebody picks it up and it just gets chopped somewhere in the Virginian Maryland area
    • And then I definitely think the money as far as the money from the payments
    • If drugs are coming in this way the payments are going into this garage Islamic Center
    • And again it's just a repeat of the Arkansas developed Finance Corporation in Arkansas
    • The money comes in you clear it at the end of the day money comes in you clear it at the end of the day you probably move it to some offshore account I'm guessing it's gonna be the Cayman Islands just looking up the traces of receipts as far as the different islands go in the Caribbean
    • Could be a little St. James but I haven't seen that evidence people have said oh it's little st. James how do we know this?
    • Well here's all ATAR been convicted many times fake billing all the sex stuff and all the ties to Hezbollah he is in the dealership
    • So he is bringing the money - I call it the Hezbollah car dealership he is bringing the money

How many casinos are there really going to be?

I keep seeing these "Vote No on 3, we need jobs" commercials. One was for Springfield. Another was for Plainville. On top of Everett, that is 3 casinos. Does the state really need 3 casinos? How many more are there going to be?

Mass. ballot questions for Nov. 2016: Charter schools, marijuana, farm animal cruelty, and 2nd slot parlor

BOSTON – Massachusetts voters will see four questions on their ballot when they head inside the polling booth in November.
Bill Galvin, the state's elections chief, assigned numbers to the ballot questions on Monday.
Here they are:
QUESTION 1. Expanding slot machine gaming. A "yes" vote would allow a second slots parlor to exist in Massachusetts. The 2011 gambling law currently allows for up to three resort casinos and one slots parlor. The slots parlor license is owned by Penn National Gaming, which operates Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville.
The Supreme Judicial Court on Tuesday rejected an attempt to block a ballot question that would allow a second slots parlor in Massachusetts.
QUESTION 2. Charter school expansion. The question, if approved, would let state education officials approve up to 12 new charter schools a year.
Charter school advocates are pushing for a ballot initiative that would expand the number of charter schools allowed in Massachusetts by up to 12 per year, even in districts like Springfield that are currently bumping up against a state cap.
QUESTION 3. Conditions for farm animals. This question, if approved, would phase out what advocates say are "extreme" methods of farm animal confinement.
The SJC allowed a ballot question to go forward that would ban the sale of meat or eggs from confined animals in Massachusetts and would ban the confinement of animals at Massachusetts farms.
QUESTION 4. Legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana. If voters say "yes," Massachusetts will join Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, Washington state and District of Columbia in legalizing marijuana for recreational use.
The Supreme Judicial Court said in an opinion Wednesday that a proposed ballot question legalizing marijuana can proceed to the November 2016 ballot. A group of 57 voters argued in a lawsuit that the court should knock down the question pushed by the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol.
The groups pushing the proposals filed the last round of signatures last week. They were required to file 10,792 in the final round of signatures in order to make it onto the ballot.
"Secretary Galvin assigned the numbers to the ballot questions based on the length of the questions and spacing on the ballots that are printed in multiple languages," Galvin's office said in a release.
Galvin's office will soon send out, through the mail, an "Information for Voters" booklet, providing a more detailed breakdown of the ballot questions.

Poll of Springfield

So, late at night, a few nights ago, I was wondering how the bellwether town of Springfield (the #Simpsons Springfield) would vote in the upcoming Presidential election. Political junkie that I am, I had to get up from bed and go over to my computer and figure it out.
Though I did my best to ask every member of the Springfield Community how they were going to vote, some refused to answer and no doubt I missed a few too. If you have any suggestions or you think anyone would vote differently, or if you can think of more fun quotes from residents of Springfield about this election, please post below!
Note: I even asked residents not of voting age, or who lost the right to vote due to previous felony convictions, and included their answers below, but not in the final poll tally.
Topline results: Hillary Clinton 44% Donald J. Trump 35% Gary Johnson 6% Other 4% Undecided/Refused 11%
Homer J. Simpson Though he wanted to vote for Trump, Marge said she’d never sleep with him again if he did, so that’s how he became a Democrat. Of course, it’s a pretty good bet he’ll punch the wrong button at the polling station as is his custom, so if he goes in wanting Hillary, we’ll count his vote for TRUMP!
Marge Simpson HILLARY
Bart Simpson “Deez-nuts” Note: not of voting age and won’t be counted in poll results.
Lisa Simpson “Well, at first I wanted Bernie Sanders. He was so dreamy! Then, when he lost I thought I’d vote for the first female President, Dr. Jill Stein! She would ride in on a magical pony and free all the animals from circuses and make everyone vegan. Then I realized I’m supporting Hillary Clinton.” Note: not of voting age and won’t be counted in poll results.
"Grandpa" Abe Simpson “I’m voting for Cal Coolidge! I like him because he’s quiet.”
Patty Bouvier HILLARY “Of course I’m voting for the woman!”
Selma Bouvier HILLARY.
Montgomery Burns TRUMP “Well, he wasn’t my first choice, but at least the young orange-haired young man isn’t a communist!”
Waylon Smithers TRUMP Gays for Trump!
Moe Szyslak TRUMP “I know how this works, see. I get in for Trump now and he lets me name a drink after him and charge twice as much. That’s why I like him, an honest politician.”
Barney Gumble Passed out, no answer
Kent Brockman HILLARY But I need to be discreet about it, being a card-carrying member of the media elite. That and I don’t want Trump’s goons to beat me up.
Mayor Quimby HILLARY I’ve been with Hillary from da start! Bill and I used to hang out…”
Lenny Leonard and Carl Carlson Will cancel one another’s votes, Lenny is leaning Trump and Carl is leaning Hillary
Krusty The Clown Member of the Springfield Republican Central Committee, JOHNSON, “Oy, this is the choice I have? I’d never vote for her, and what’s he doing with the anti-Semitic retweets and hey, I’m supposed to be the clown here.”
Doctor Hibbert Member of the Springfield Republican Central Committee, TRUMP “Well I liked Dr. Ben Carson, but I suppose Trump will do.”
Ned Flanders Undecided “Oh lord, how did we wind up with such diddly awful candidates? I think I’ll just write in Ronald Reagan.”
Kang and Kodos “TRUMP! We want Trump to be subjugator of the masses!” Note: not of voting age and won’t be counted in poll results,
Comic Book Guy JOHNSTON “Well I liked Bernie of course, but now I like Gary Johnson. Polar opposite? Methinks not.”
Apu Nahasapeemapetilon HILLARY “Oh my goodness, even though I am Hindu not Muslim I do not think that Mr. Trump knows the difference. He is a very bad man.”
Manjula Nahasapeemapetilon HILLARY

Otto Mann JOHNSON “I was feeling the Bern, but I’m a one-issue man, and I like the guy who wants to legalize weed and give it out to everyone! Oh wait, he doesn’t want the government to give it out? Maybe I’ll go Hillary then!”
Bumblebee Man HILLARY “Si yo soy ciudano Americano. HILLARY HILLARY HILLARY. Por favor dios HILLARY!”
Snake (Jailbird) “Oh, election time?” (cannot vote due to priory felony conviction)
Old Gil Gunderson TRUMP “I just signed up for his Trump University, I know this is my ticket! This is the right program for me to finally launch my success! Finally Ol' Gil is gonna make it!”
Sideshow Bob (Robert Terwilliger) TRUMP “I appreciate the complex intricacies of his simple mind” (not counted, convicted felon)
