They have been planning this one for over a year.  

Key DC leadership will be at secret locations during the "exercise".

Eagle Horizon 2010 will start on Monday, 17 May 2010 and end on Wednesday, 19 May 2010.

Did Senator Reid cancel the false flag on Vegas?

'Terrorist attack' on Las Vegas canceled: Politics over preparedness?

posted March 30, 2010 at 3:01 pm EDT

At Sen. Harry Reid's request, the Obama administration canceled a mock 'dirty bomb' terrorist attack exercise in Las Vegas. Critics say the administration is playing politics with national preparedness, but others say a shift to secret surprise tests is a better way to prepare for the worst.

One thing is definite about this year's federal play-acting exercise to assess national emergency preparedness: A faux radioactive nuke, or "dirty bomb," will not be blowing up the Las Vegas Strip in May.

Reminiscent of Stephen King's "The Stand" featuring a similar cataclysmic showdown in Vegas, the preparedness exercise proved too much for many Nevadans, already battered by a poor economy and worried about a PR nightmare.

Sen. Harry Reid (D) of Nevada, in the midst of battling for the White House's healthcare reforms, wrote late last year that to "simulate a nuclear detonation in the heart of the city would unacceptably harm the Southern Nevadan economy."

More recently, President Obama had rankled Nevadans when he suggested that gambling on the Vegas Strip wasn’t the wisest move “when you’re trying to save for college." When Senator Reid complained about the comment, Mr. Obama was quick to apologize.

Will there be an exercise somewhere else?

Against that practical and political backdrop, the Obama administration scratched Vegas as the National Level Exercise host city late last year. That leaves the NLE 2010, which involves 10,000 responders, still on the calendar but without a practice field: DHS has yet to publicly announce the city – or even the scenario – it plans to use in mid-May. (It usually takes upward of a year to plan an NLE exercise.)

“NLE 2010 is currently in the final stages of planning for this spring," writes FEMA spokesman Brad Carroll in an e-mail. "We will continue to reach out to key stakeholders, including state and local officials, to receive their input as we prepare for and continue to develop this important event.”


The possibility that politics may have affected a national preparedness event rankles some Republicans on Capitol Hill, especially after Obama in July halted a Bush-era "scenario planning" program to review its effectiveness.

Canceling the Vegas exercise "just plays into the narrative ... that the public cannot handle any discussion of serious potential terror threats," writes John Solomon, a blogger who says he's writing a book about emergency preparedness. "As a result, it prevents our leaders from having an open dialogue which might actually improve our ability to respond."

But the president's supporters, including those deep inside the nation's emergency preparedness ranks, say the Obama White House may be shifting away from large-scale "open book" tests, practiced during President Bush's tenure, and toward "no-notice," or secretly planned, tests that thrust emergency managers into unexpected, sink-or-swim scenarios.

Surprise exercises may be a better test

"The administration is reasonably asking questions about how the NLE program is constructed, what are the outcomes, how are the lessons learned used, which is all fair game," says Craig Vanderwagen, who served as assistant secretary for preparedness and response in the Department of Health and Human Services until his retirement last fall. "There is a school of thought that says, 'Let's do some no-notice testing and see what we've got.' And if you judge by the intensity by which the president and the White House have directed reviews on a lot of these activities, [no-notice] tests are within the realm of possibility."

That would represent a major shift for a national emergency preparedness plan that spans local, county, state, regional, and federal agencies. Cooperation under that plan is often marred by inadequate funding at various levels of government, as well as issues that limit the ability of Washington to fully control response scenarios.

Changing the NLE would test Obama's ability to maneuver a maze of congressional oversight that has often failed to close basic gaps in national preparedness, including first responders' ability to use a common radio system to communicate with one another.

Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on NLE 2010.

"The tendency right now is to be more focused on biological events [such as a pandemic] as opposed to manmade disasters, but we can't ignore the fact that there are still bad guys with evil intent doing bad things that could involve radiation and nuclear," says Mr. Vanderwagen. "The impact on our society of such an event would be huge – the idea of not being able to use New York City for a generation if we had that kind of exposure."




Also, how do you know "DC leadership will be in secret locations?"

the goal is IBM and GE's smart grids.

for reference, IBM is the company that is responsible for the tattoos on death camp victims of Hitler. GE worked with Stalin and Mao to deprive tens of millions of heat and electricity via "socialized energy systems"

Smart grids are 10th generation tools for efficient genocide by the NWO:

All of the drills have the objective of promoting "interoperability" which is centralized control. Anyone with two brain cells firing knows that decentralization is the most secure method of protecting a free and educated people.

Does the nation need a national level exercise program?
http://www.hlswatch.com/2010/04/06/does-the-nation-need-a-national-level-exercise-program/
Filed under: Preparedness and Response — by Christopher Bellavita on April 6, 2010

Imagine a 7.8 Richter Scale earthquake near St. Louis, MO, on the New Madrid fault line.  Assume the earthquake causes extreme damage in 8 states along the Mississippi River.  This includes over 89,000 dead, nearly half a million people injured, more than 5 million people homeless, loss of numerous bridges crossing the Mississippi, as well as destruction of major oil, gasoline, and natural gas pipelines that serve much of the Eastern Seaboard.

One might think this high consequence (low probability or high probability — take your pick) event would make a natural subject for a national level homeland security exercise.

Maybe not.

Perhaps there are some extreme homeland security events — call them catastrophes –  where the value of exercising top officials is more symbolic than sensible.

—————————————————-

The Vacation Lane Blog — written by William Cumming (a frequent writer in hlswatch) — began its internet life on Saturday with commentary about the postponement of the national level exercise program. http://vlg338.blogspot.com/2010/04/sinews-of-preparedness.html

Cumming argues in “The Sinews of Preparedness,”

… this Administration, like all before it, fails to understand that the sinews of preparedness are built with exercises, from table tops to full scale exercises, and with the personnel including appointees that will actually be called on to run the civil domestic crisis management system or be in the chain of command for civil crisis events. Failure to be prepared only makes it more likely that military dominated organizations, which tend to ad hoc despite extraordinary funding, will drive the crisis response with huge implications for the civil sector and federalism. [They are scared of the people's army, of an informed public, of constitutional well trained people.]

On its face, the author’s recommendation seems sensible: training and exercises will make for a more effective response when something real happens.

Why should anyone believe that claim?

Aristotle said, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

One need look no further for evidence about the correctness of this belief than the professional experiences of police, fire fighters, emergency medical professionals, emergency managers, and other responders.

The lessons from Aristotle, Mr. Cumming, and first responder experiences may be true for “normal” disasters — earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, floods, tornadoes, and so on.

I wonder if that truth about exercise has much value when it comes to getting “top officials” ready for catastrophes.

—————————————————-

For FEMA/DHS, a catastrophe is any incident “that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the population, infrastructure, environment, economy, national morale, and/or government functions.”

Catastrophes, as a colleague has written “are the nightmare scenarios that can bring the nation to its knees.”

There do not appear to have been that many catastrophes in the past half century of our history.

The colleague I just mentioned recently completed a study of the federal part of the post 9/11 emergency planning and response system.  As a tangential part of his work, he noted there have been around 1900 presidential disaster declarations since 1953.  He found only four of the 1900 events were (definitional) catastrophes: Three Mile Island, and Hurricanes Hugo, Andrew and Katrina.

You might add a few more to his list — like 9/11/01 in New York City, Arlington, and Shanksville.  But the number of catastrophes remains small.

My colleague found that federal agencies played major “supporting” roles in all of those catastrophes. But governors — maybe a mayor or two — always retained control of what was going on in their jurisdictions.

It’s my understanding (aided by experiences with early versions of TOPOFF) that national level exercises have some play for state and local officials, but for the most part, the general intention of the exercises is to:

Support U.S. Government Officers’ preparation for managing national crises, and accountability of those who support them.


I have no idea what role training and exercising state, city, or federal officials — especially political officials — played in successful or unsuccessful catastrophic response.  I’ve looked for data that sheds light on the utility of exercising for catastrophes, but so far I’ve come up largely empty.  (There is the 2004 “Hurricane Pam” exercise example for New Orleans, of course.  But that mostly suggests preparedness requires something more than exercises.)

My understanding is the average tenure for a federal political appointee — a top official — is between 18 months and 2 years.   How does one train and exercise federal appointed and elected officials for an incident where  there are “over 89,000 dead, nearly half a million people injured, more than 5 million people homeless?”

Is there any evidence that justifies spending money on those officials for such training and exercises?

Since 2005, the federal government has spent more than 200 million dollars on national level exercises.  Have those expenditures come anywhere close to providing commensurate benefits?  If those data are not available, could the 200 million have been spent on some other homeland security-related activities, including local exercises, that might have increased the nation’s preparedness?

I suspect those are largely rhetorical questions, lost somewhere inside the conventional wisdom that worships any homeland security training and exercise as an unquestioningly good thing.

—————————————————-

One of the homeland security goals described in the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review is to:

Foster Innovative Approaches and Solutions Through Leading-Edge Science and Technology: Ensure scientifically informed analysis and decisions are coupled to innovative and effective technological solutions.

I like the sound of that goal.  It says science matters.

I like the objectives of the goal even more:
Scientifically study threats and vulnerabilities: Pursue a rigorous scientific understanding of current and future threats to homeland security and the possible means to their prevention and mitigation.
Develop innovative approaches and effective solutions: Encourage and enable innovative approaches

Both objectives suggest we should look to science to validate our prevention and mitigation efforts, and to lead the nation toward new ways to think about what we do under the banner of homeland security.

Federal and state emergency mangers are debating whether or not to continue the National Level Exercise series. According to The Washington Post, the Obama administration canceled an exercise centered on a simulated nuclear attack on Las Vegas after Sen. Harry Reid, backed by casino and business interests, said it would hurt the region’s economy.

In response to a FEMA proposal to scale back an exercise simulating an earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone scheduled for next year, Kentucky Emergency Manager John W. Heltzel, who is also chairman of the Central United States Earthquake Consortium, said the eight states involved in planning for that exercise pledged to go ahead as planned.

FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate and U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano want to restore the element of surprise to exercises testing national preparedness.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the members of a task force charged with examining ways to make communities more resilient. This task force is composed of 35 members, mostly emergency management and homeland security practitioners from all levels of government.

Congress asked for the formation of the Preparedness Task Force along with the 2010 DHS Appropriations Act, making it responsible for "making recommendations for all levels of government regarding disaster and emergency guidance and policy, federal grants; and federal requirements — with an emphasis on identifying preparedness policies, guidelines and grant programs that should be updated and recommending paths forward to improve the nation’s collective capabilities for preparing for disasters,” according to a DHS news release.

The task force expects to deliver its recommendations in September 2010.

A list of the members of the task force and more information can be found in this DHS news release.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the formation of the local, state, tribal, and federal Preparedness Task Force—a council of experts charged with assessing the state of the nation’s disaster preparedness and making recommendations to Secretary Napolitano about ways to build resiliency in communities across America.

“Enhancing preparedness across our nation requires close collaboration between all levels of government,” said Secretary Napolitano. “The recommendations of this Task Force—comprised of emergency management and homeland security experts from states, cities and tribes across the country—will help guide our ongoing efforts to ensure the resilience of communities throughout the nation.”

The Task Force is comprised of 35 members of local, state and tribal governments—many of whom have also served within federal government—offering a diverse cross-section of experience in homeland security and emergency management missions. The Task Force will also engage Congressional partners, as well as the private sector and non-governmental and development organizations through a variety of outreach activities.

The Conference Report accompanying the 2010 DHS Appropriations Act called for a Task Force responsible for “making recommendations for all levels of government regarding: disaster and emergency guidance and policy; federal grants; and federal requirements”—with an emphasis on identifying preparedness policies, guidelines and grant programs that should be updated and recommending paths forward to improve the nation’s collective capabilities for preparing for disasters.

The Task Force will conduct regular meetings and expects to deliver recommendations in September 2010.

The Sinews of Preparedness
http://vlg338.blogspot.com/2010/04/sinews-of-preparedness.html

Recently, many MSM article and blog postings have discussed the postponement of NLE V [National Level Exercise] by the Administration and DHS. There are enormus implications that can be implied by this postponement. The most critical is that this Administration, like all before it, fails to understand that the sinews of preparedness are built with exercises, from table tops to full scale exercises, and with the personnel including appointees that will actually be called on to run the civil domestic crisis management system or be in the chain of command for civil crisis events. Failure to be prepared only makes it more likely that military dominated organizations, which tend to ad hoc despite extraordinary funding, will drive the crisis response with huge implications for the civil sector and federalism. Essentially, NO administration since the dawn of the nuclear age has created an adequate White House Domestic Civil response organization and chain of command. During the days of the Federal Civil Defense Program created by Public Law 920 of the 81st Congress [repealed in 1994] the reality was no civil domestic crisis response planning and preparedness just turn it over to the military post attack. This was UnConstitutional, lazy, and not in keeping with the democractic (actually US is a Republic) traditions of our society. The nuclear priesthood enjoyed their power in their secret temples and had no one to watch over what they were planning. See Plans D and Other than D which died on the formation of FEMA in 1979! If accomplishing creation of such a system is just is too difficult from a public administration standpoint the day in which the ambitious military takes over civil crisis management and response comes that much closer.

There are several points that may have been overlooked in any analysis of recent events concerning the National Level Exercise program:

1) The SECDHS (Napolitano) was Governor of Arizona and had a very negative impression of the exercise series as a result of TOPOFF 3 (the NLE predecessor).

2) The preparedness planning effort at FEMA for the New Madrid Seismic Zone scenario is behind schedule. In fact, the scenario for 2010 was to have been 'New Madrid' but was postponed to 2011 due to planning shortfalls.

3) The exercise planning effort itself at FEMA is lackluster. The planners are great at having meetings which are nothing more than 'dog and pony' briefing sessions with little or no interaction on the part of planners from other agencies.

2010 (NLE 10) -- May 17-21, 2010

DRILL REPORT: National Level Exercise 2010 (NLE 10) -- May 17-21, 2010

NLE 09 which occurred at the end of July last year, had an unprecedented amount of military movement and training for martial law. This year's National Level Exercise will be fully integrated with Eagle Horizon 2010, a drill focusing on continuity of government (COG--also known as Rex 84, and the implementation of PDD-51). NLE 09 did not have this added component.

-- Silver

When: May 17-21, 2010

Where: FEMA Region 8 (Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah), FEMA Region 9 (California, Nevada, Arizona), National Capital Region

Who: FEMA, DHS, Department of Transportation, NORTHCOM, NORAD

Contracted Companies: L3 Communications, Bridgeborn, Ogilvy Public Relations

Scenario: An improvised nuclear device detonation in a major US city. This is a "domestic terrorism" focused drill. Response to such destruction and COG plans enacted. Summary of NLE 10 here. Summary of Eagle Horizon 2009 (for reference) here.


Dates are from the Department of Transportation website, quoted below. All other sites merely say "May 2010." Dates are always subject to change, etc.


Training and Exercise Program

Summary: The program objective is to sustain a robust training and exercise program based upon all-hazards emergency management to meet all preparedness, response, and recovery needs, including those for COOP/COG and the regional emergency transportation program. This program integrates the requirements of the National Response Framework (NRF) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) into DOT policies, plans, and programs. Additionally, it tests and validates these documents through training and exercises. The Program Manager participates in the planning, conduct and evaluation of inter-agency exercises and prepares DOT representatives (up to and including the Secretary, as appropriate) for participation in major exercises. The Program Manager also represents the Department at all interagency training and exercise meetings and the Homeland Security Council (HSC) Domestic Readiness Group (DRG) Exercise and Evaluation Sub-Policy Coordination Committee (E & E Sub-PCC) meetings. Lastly the Program Manager is assisting in the development of DOT training requirements for the new National Security Professional Development program (under Executive Order 13434) and Reconstruction/Stabilization training requirements of National Security Presidential Decision (NSPD - 44).

Partner Agencies: Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other Federal departments and agencies.

Stakeholders: Operating Administrations, DOT Senior Officials, and Interagency community.

Major Projects:

* Key Exercises and Events for 2010
o Principal Level Exercise 4-09: October 21, 2009; Major Earth Quake in San Francisco, CA.

the goal is IBM and GE's smart grids.

for reference, IBM is the company that is responsible for the tattoos on death camp victims of Hitler. GE worked with Stalin and Mao to deprive tens of millions of heat and electricity via "socialized energy systems"

Smart grids are 10th generation tools for efficient genocide by the NWO:

All of the drills have the objective of promoting "interoperability" which is centralized control. Anyone with two brain cells firing knows that decentralization is the most secure method of protecting a free and educated people.
1000% dead on.

And this is why I got the hell out of dodge three years ago.  The only thing they can do to top the 9/11 false-flag is to nuke one of their own G-D cities.  It's like Russian roulette.

I was in L.A.  It could be any of the major cities though, maybe even more than one.  The only thing they can do to intentionally shake people out of the absolute stupor they are kept in by design is to blow the big one.  Another couple of skyscrapers falling just won't cut it next time.

And why wouldn't they go back to that well when it worked so nicely the last time?

Is key DC leadership in secure location during each year of these? Also why is this the year?  It seems like every year this same deal comes up and nothing occurs.  I can understand why this year more than others but on a scale of 1-10 how confident are we are on this.

I wouldn't hold my breath for something crazy to happen.  But these guys did pull of 911 so anything is possible.

When you see Carlyle Group meeting, do not be in that city!

BTW, as far as jews:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9/11_conspiracy_theories
Jews who died in the attacks is variously estimated at between 270 to 400. The lower figure tracks closely with the percentage of Jews living in the New York area and partial surveys of the victims' listed religion. The U.S. State Department has published a partial list of 76 in response to claims that fewer Jews/Israelis died in the WTC attacks than should have been present at the time. Five Israeli citizens died in the attack.

There was an Israeli company (Odigo which is probably a Mossad front group) that did warn their emplyees, but it seems they did not alert their compatriots nor did they warn the "jews" en masse.

I will definitely agree that everyone should be aware that the main escapee of the zionist lightning was indeed Lucky Larry! The movie Dedicated exposes this in great detail: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-237942365006875164

Well, Mossad would not hesitate to sacrifice some fellow Jews if it was them.  Abraham had to be willing to sacrifice his own son.

On the other hand all the major (Jewish ) players at WTC were conspicuously absent that day.

As far as anything happening, say, tomorrow during the pseudo-Patriot (Zionist-extremist) open-carry rallies on the Potomac, or next month during the NLE, these things probably are low probablility, but the point is these things are the perfect cover for the next false-flag event.

I would take this information about them as the heads-up they are intended to be -- not prophecy, or inside information per se.

They often do, they answer to the G7 banksters just like MI6 an CIA.

And thus was the reason for the end of the sacrifices to Molech (which Bohemian Grovers still partake in). The deity of the three western religions transformed the insane practice which was common at the time.

apparent Blackjack countsdown to June 21st or June 22nd 2010

Based on the "Operation Blackjack Slide Show Story," specifically Part-5, Slide-16, showing a Newspaper headline dated June 21, 2011, and considering the nukes on DC, London, NY, etc, which took place earlier in the time line on June 22, year unknown, the nuke scenario must have happened in 2010 or in 2009:

---------------

(IMO) What is most interesting about the "Operation Blackjack Slide Show Story" is that the original posting featured Gordon Brown as the Prime Minister, but was later replaced with a David Cameron slide. If David Cameron wins the May election, then maybe we should give more credence to the rest of the predictive programming, especially considering the weight of the rest of this Prison Planet Forum post:

I bet Phill Schneider knew where they would hide, Dulce and the deep underground military bases/bunker networks and the Greek Islands. And when the inevitable happens, millions of white al-qaeda get shipped to FEMA camps. Clean and easy way to depopulate brown people, drug dealers, illegals, dissidents, White Al-Qaeda, and regular citizens etc in one day. I'm ready to head for the mountains if I see a bright flash.8)

Sin-City could be it.  To say it's not included may be a diversion.

Maybe it could be the cities that house the COMEX and LBMA considering the fraud coming out about how JPM and HSBC account for so many shorts the leverage is at 100:1 or higher!  What a way to cover up the commodities fraud like they did with the FBI and SEC investigation records in WTC7.

Then again what's the chance the White House will fly Soetoro & Biden out and pick DC to stage in.  If the Soetoro administration got rid of most of congress, that will most definitely put COG into full operation.  Hell if the White House's handlers decided to sacrifice their PR man, you could throw the "Jesus effect" into the mix and blame it on the Tea Parties for added effect.

No matter how this would pan out, if the White House were to do this it will spell real bad trouble for the People.

They have not had leadership in hiding for any of these drills in a while.  Another reason why I am nervous.

I know TWO members of the Shadow Government.  They use to deploy offsite for these event years ago.  But then they stopped.

Some members of the Shadow Gov are real.  Some are decoys.

Yeah I agree they were referring to a more awe inspiring event when they spoke of a new pearl harbor.  9/11 just a miniscule test bed of evil.

Must ramp up Rhetoric to militarily begin WW3!!!  How man Lemmings are going to jump into the fire pit at the end of their march?
Where (when) in the road will the fire pit appear?

Everything else was decided way before most of the present Lemmings where even born.

Oh and as these NLE's get more and more outlandish.  Each one seem to outshine the other. COG followed by nuke attack on American city I mean what will next years NLE be?  Any guesses?  They have played out darkwinter,bio-attack,pandemic,civil uprising,bombings, and much more. 

When will everyone be so completely desensitized to this crap that they just pull the trigger?  Time is approaching.  Taking bets on next years NLE.  Three toed leper Invasion from the planet Zorgon.  Sorry stuff is so of the wall I have to poke fun sometimes.
