The sad truth is that when your own government has been taken over by bad guy's anything is possible and I felt that the Texas plant timing was suspect.

Unfortunately NO info warriors were on the scene with cameras and note pads (or ipads) in hand to get witness accounts.

This is quite amazing.  Indeed, some experts need to view this please?

I can't imagine that this is a normal fire and explosion.

It is indeed possible.  The shrieking noise prior to the blast is very suspect.

However, the sheer size of the explosion is not evidence of anything.

Consider this just for the sake of being thorough in looking at all sides...

A fire breaks out near storage vessel containing 54,000lbs of anhydrous ammonia.  The rise in temperature of this substance would certainly cause off-gassing (see the MSDS) and could have ruptured the vessel... seems likely since there was a report of a 10 minute uncontrolled leak of the product.  Firefighters attempt to control the blaze using massive amount of water, which would only cause an escalation of the ammonia off-gassing (according to the MSDS).  This MASSIVE vapor cloud would merely be an inert (though intense) pollutant and irritant under normal circumstances.  However, if you look at the size of the blaze, it is conceivable that temperatures rose high enough to reach the ammonia's flashpoint (again, see the MSDS).  Igniting a vapor cloud of that size coupled with the product still in the vessel could cause this level of an explosion and it would certainly appear to "come from" where the smoke was going (it's vapor after all).

As I said, I'm not discounting foul play, but simply offering a reasonable possibility based on the facts at hand thus far.  I could very well be way off.

This could be the right explanation. I saw a flash fire before. Spraying paint commercially, a guy decided to take a smoke break in the room he was spraying and woosh, a ball of fire. Sounded and looked like what happened right before the explosion.

Thank you.

Anyway, if you wanted to blow the plant up to cause a media distraction, would you

(a) Send one agent with a handful of C4

(b) Involve a huge amount of people, time, money, expense by using a missile

Before someone starts posting about missiles consider this.

Referring again to MSDS. We learn that:

We also learn:

Now we need to know how much was at the plant.

http://www.click2houston.com/news/Firefighters-missing-after-Texas-blast/-/1735978/19795414/-/view/print/-/oyfi7i/-/index.html

Back to the MSDS.

http://www.cameochemicals.noaa.gov/chemical/4860

So we have 54,000 pounds of a chemical that could very well explode under the circumstances. If one tank under pressure goes...... the rest are going to blow as well.

What makes more sense? A chemical plant blowing up from a fire that started for unknown reasons, or the government using a missile to blow it up after the volatile chemical is on fire?

Here is a tanker that exploded in Houston in 1976.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OR7A5jWmDs


The real question is who/what started the fire?
  and Why are we not focusing on the suspects and blatant msm cover up of military personnel on scene In boston moments before the explosion?

Sure looks and sounds like a missile to me...

Remember ATF or DHS making a massive purchase of ANFO products?

And now an ammonium nitrate plant (possibly a source for the products purchased?) blows up. And possibly by a missile strike...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mpUJ5IIgIY

Remember the munitions factory blowing up in Louisiana not too long ago?

We may be seeing some kind of covert war going on. Who? I have no idea.

But I think it is strange the Mossad shows up in Boston to 'help' out...

Lots of things going on, probably several agendas at once. Chaos and confusion, to create disorientation...watch for the punch line, cause it'll give the constitution a black eye, I'm sure...

I have been watching you guys for years, you are always on the ball with everthing and break news often before the mainstream media does. Why aren't you guys even putting out an article showing this video with AT THE VERY LEAST some speculation? This facility was involved in a law suit against Monsanto, you got that. I just heard Alex mention the explosion in his ending words as suspicious, but so far ZERO articles on this. There are people all over your "BREAKING NEWS" topic on the explosion and in fact, you deleted my post pointing this out to you. I'm not trying to plug any web sites or go against your forum posting rules, BUT THESE f**kING QUESTIONS NEED TO BE ASKED! THIS IS WHAT INFOWARS IS ABOUT! WHAT THE f**k?!

I actually got a hold of one of your staff on the phones earlier and told him about this video and our research, telling them where to find it, but still nothing.

I am currently a forum admin on forums.adamvstheman.com, so you can see I am a friend to liberty and the spread of truth, I don't get anything out of telling you people this. Since this event happened, myself and other staff and forums members have been taking time out of our busy work days to provide evidence and speculation on this missile strike theory. I just want to share our combined efforts and get more eyes on this to help prove it right or wrong.

Thank you for everything you guys do, keep up the good work.

Another official drill goes live


http://www.examiner.com/article/another-official-drill-goes-live

As if everyone in America should be playing the Powerball this weekend however, another incredible coincidence has occurred, where the instance of a drill miraculously coinciding with the existence of the need for the personnel running the drill, kicked off at the most opportune time and location.

Coming to light Thursday, only hours after a huge industrial explosion took out a Texas fertilizer plant, also taking out a portion of the small town of West, TX, potentially injuring or killing hundreds more, just so happens to be a little more than an hour’s drive from a huge hospital drill, coincidentally scheduled for the very same day.

According to a blog run by North Hills Hospital, Thursday’s drill had to be cancelled to shift resources from the drill to the nearby catastrophe. The blog update reads as follows:

Update on the drill (posted 4/18): Due to the events in West, Texas last night, North Hills Hospital and the NCTTRAC have chosen to cancel today’s emergency preparedness drill. Many of the same resources planned for the drill have already deployed to West to help care for the victims down there.

The fertilizer plant, owned by a company that filed a lawsuit against Monsanto in 2007, was totally destroyed by the explosion only one day from the anniversaries of both the OK City Bombing and the infamous final Waco Branch Davidian siege that took place only 20 miles away.

A few other instances of coincidental drills going live, at the very locations where catastrophic and tragic events took place, are detailed below:

The OK City Bombing was quite possibly the most gut wrenching terror attack in the country’s history. The presence of a daycare center, full of children at the time, made the devastation of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building that much more tragic.

Blamed on Timothy McVeigh, who would be convicted and eventually put to death for the crime, the bombing would ultimately claim the lives of 168 people, including 19 children.

The irony of the circumstances however was the fact that a nearby drill was being conducted by the OK City ATF and it’s bomb-squad, simulating almost the exact same scenario that played out during the bombing that morning.

Because of the extraordinarily coincidental drill, none of the ATF or their staff, whose offices were housed in the building, happened to be in the building at the time and all escaped injury as a result.

The explosion originated from the ground and casted a bright reflection underneath the smoke cloud above it. Watch this video closely, there was no missile:

Waco Texas Fertilizer Plan Explosion : SLOW-MOTION, MISSILE/METEOR/COMET/PROJECTILE DEBUNKED

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z27CJYUgGBI

 Published on Apr 18, 2013

Slow-motion break down of the tragic Waco, Texas fertilizer plant explosion. I play back the original, raw cell phone footage at a variety of speeds. Freeze-frame and slow motion show that the large explosion caught partially on tape does NOT appear to be a projectile, missile, meteor, comet, or other outside source - it does appear to originate form the ground level and trigger a larger explosion in the already-burning building. What do you think? I also note what appears to be a wall or partition of some kind which blocks the lower portion of the explosion from view and adds to the illusion of a flaming projectile coming sideways/down. Please comment and let me know what you think.

No, that would be you.

I believe that Kokesh is a possible Oswald/McVeigh style sheep dipped patsy to be used if necessary for plans he likely is not even aware of. Some of the research is here:

Track II Exposed: Sheep Dipped Kokesh Patsy|Bilderberg plan to put Jeb in the WH
http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=232100.0

The Ron Paul campaign has distanced themselves from him as his rhetoric has become very peculiar.

But his request that Ron Paul followers look at the logic and efficiency of an assassination of a presidential candidate is a sure sign of a sheep dipped patsy laying a cover story out for people to be conditioned to blame Ron Paul followers in case of any such insane, illegal, immoral, and counter productive event. The Bilderberg crew has been spending billions to associate ron paul followers to violence and no one but Kokesh is advising such insanity. Especially now when Ron Paul is winning so easily based on his constitutional re-LOVE-ution.

Here is the information on that MK Ultra style rant...

2] Setting up the narrative.

With any Track II effort that involves a policy changing event like a false flag, there requires an underlining story, narrative, mythology about the heroes and the villains. Over the past year, we have seen the Bilderberg media making multi-billion dollar efforts to portray Ron Paul supporters as "insurgents", "infiltrators", "al-qaeda", "violent", "crazy", "disassociated with reality", "a threat to national security". They have been doing this despite the fact that nothing could be further from the truth. The Ron Paul revolution is identified with the word love in the word revolution. Ron Paul is not only a man of peace, he requires that his campaign practice what he preaches. He is the most lawful, the most transparent, the most peaceful candidate in the past 50+ years of politics in America. And over 99.999% of his supporters actively share his vision. Not because they have blind faith, but because it makes the most sense.

The Ron Paul campaign has the numbers, overwhelmingly. By the time the convention rolls around, he likely will walk into the nomination. But even if he does not, Ron Paul supporters were never idolicly attached to him as president as there is a much more powerful objective...to build an informed public that can never be manipulated by deception again. This is the primary objective IMO and I believe anyone doing a cursory investigation will find the same thing. So why does the Bilderberg media think they can get away with this Philip Zelikow style False Public Myth? Sorry to say but it looks like some people involved with the Ron Paul campaign are sheep dipped patsies involved in the MK Patriot program that recruits ex-military to act as false leaders pushing the Ron Paul movement toward violence and chaos.

Cass Sunstein brags about infiltrating peaceful groups who are against illegal wars, the federal reserve ponzi scheme, or other unconstitutional acts of tyranny by the hijacked government. So the question remains...who are these sheep dipped patsies desperately attaching themselves to the Ron Paul campaign or sleeper cells who have started to make "Oswald" style public statements setting themselves up for a Track II False Flag patsy role?

Here is one of them that Bilderberg rags have repeated about 100,000x:
www.thepoliticalcarnival.net/2011/12/18/ca-politician-ron-paul-supporter-posts-racist-call-for-assassination-of-pres-obama-and-daughters/
www.crooksandliars.com/nicole-belle/failed-tea-party-politician-posts-fac

Here is another one:
www.redstate.com/mikeymike143/2012/01/15/ron-paul-supporters-threaten-atlanta-family-with-rape-death/

These actions have actually caused a blowback showing that Americans are aware that these are likely false flag patsies and their operations only attack Ron Paul and therefore could not possibly be supporters of Ron Paul.

And then that brings us full circle to Adam Kokesh who recently said the following:
http://roundhouseroundup.blogspot.com/2012/05/kokesh-says-assassinating-romney-has.html


These actions that Adam engaged in are clearly defined as a felony with a sentence of up to 5 years. Seeing that nothing is being done about this and that much of the media has been quiet shows that this information is supposed to come out post-Track II false flag in order to Oswald him whether he knows it or not.

Important to note that many people have been promoting Ron Paul to go after Romney which is hardly required at this time. Others have been spreading rumors that Ron Paul is secretly working with Ron Paul. This is another classic psyop to push a group into infighting. These type of MI6/CIA/Saban Institute/Al-Jazeera narratives sabotaged the most recent peace process in the Middle East via the fraudulent "Palestinian Papers".
In light of this possible Bilderberg Track II scenario, I would suggest the following:

Reach out to Romney supporters and treat them with the utmost respect. Romney is not in the capstone and he ain't in the club even if he thinks he is. In the end, he is just another slave like the rest of us and Bilderberg will use him like the horse in animal farm. If you attend a caucus and his son is giving a speech, treat him or other Romney speakers with the utmost respect.

Now there are 100x more infiltrators in the Romney campaign then they are in the Ron Paul campaign. So, it will require a Gandhi-esque demeaner to deal with the onslaught of activities like those we have seen in the recent caucuses. But the issues affecting our country are so much bigger than their attempts to get us into sandbox fights. I have to say that thus far the narrative propagandists are failing because of the awesome and honourable efforts of all the people at the caucuses. I bow to all of you who stay 15-20 hours straight only to leave confused about what happened. I bow to everyone recording and uploading videos exposing the incredible magic going on at the caucuses. Please keep it up so that Track II will never again poison our country like it did in Dallas in November, 1962. I pray for all the candidates during this pivotal moment in this country's history. No one wins when we stop praying that all the rights of man are protected for CFR/Bilderberg scumbags as well as constitutionalists.

Drill...
http://northhillshospital.wordpress.com/2013/04/16/this-is-only-a-drill/

North Hills Hospital is proud to be hosting one of the largest emergency preparedness drills ever held in the state of Texas this week. We will be partnering with the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council (NCTTRAC) and first responders from throughout North Texas to test our equipment and processes so that when a real disaster happens, we’re all ready to respond.

This drill is even timelier in the wake of the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon. Our prayers go out to the victims involved, and we are proud of the first responders – EMS, fire, police, race workers, and hospital staff - who so bravely cared for the injured.

If you live near North Hills Hospital, you will see a lot of activity in our parking lots over the next three days as the NCTTRAC sets up a mobile 140-bed hospital, along with dozens of ambulances, several AMBUS (multi-patient ambulances), and helicopters. This is only a drill and will simulate a hospital evacuation, something that might be necessary in the event of a tornado, hurricane, earthquake, or prolonged power failure.

Set-up for the drill will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, with the drill occurring on Thursday. At no time will regular patient care be affected, as the drill will use only “actor” patients and be confined to non-patient care areas and the parking lot. Tune in to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/northhillshosp)  and Instagram feed (@NorthHillsHospital) for pictures of the drill throughout the week.

This is rating low on my "fishy" meter... not totally discounting the "coincidence", however.  I've already posted my theory on the explosion, and as far as I know, investigators are yet to release any info about the cause.

The preparedness drill was to address completely unrelated disaster types and focused on hospital evacuation... that's what the notice regarding the drill says anyway.  Not only that, the hospital is 79 miles from the plant... not exactly a nearby event (I mean, it would be far more suspicious if a hospital in Waco was conducting this exercise).

If the following information is accurate, I will have to dismiss at least some of my own theory thus far on the cause of the explosion.

Investigators: Rail car, ammonia tank did not explode at West plant
Officials with the State Fire Marshal’s Office confirmed Wednesday that the four tanks of ammonia at the West Fertilizer Co. plant never ruptured in the April 17 blast.


And to potentially dismiss another theory that I'd yet to see bandied about anywhere...

Rail car with ammonium nitrate didn't cause Texas blast: fire official
A spokeswoman for Union Pacific, Raquel Espinoza, said the railroad did not own the rail car or its contents.

"Photographs taken after the incident show the rail car lying on its side, largely intact, with no evidence of it being directly involved in the explosion or fire," she said in a statement emailed to Reuters on Tuesday.

"The car was knocked over by the explosion, resulting in some of its cargo being spilled. There are no visible signs of the cargo being burnt. Most of the cargo appears to have remained inside the rail car," Espinoza said.



Granted, I'm not a chemist, so I don't know if the off-gassing from the relief vents of the anhydrous ammonia tanks could create a vapor cloud large enough to cause such a massive explosion.  However, if that is not the case, the idea that this could be written off as, and I quote from the second article, "an accident, arson or an unexplained cause" is a real possibility.  Perhaps it was an accident, but that hardly explains the cause of the explosion, nor does arson.  Arson may explain the initial fire to which emergency crews responded, but not the explosion.  Finally, since when is claiming "an unexplained cause" ever the end of an investigation?

Aside from the ridiculous notion of writing this off as "an accident, arson or an unexplained cause," we're left with the missile thing... a theory that is going to require far more evidence than a frame or two of video that appears to show "something" with no definitive characteristics other than being maybe fire coming in from the left (from the perspective of the video).  Without more evidence than this, I just can't jump on that wagon.

With that said, what f**king blew up?  What was the composition of the massive fireball?  Did anyone think to get some air samples?  Was there any fallout that could be sampled?  Would any of this make a difference in determining the source of the explosion?  Questions abound in lieu of any more detailed facts with which to formulate answers.  Investigators are still there... we'll see what surfaces.

He said firefighters prepared to set up a stream of water on the tanks to keep them from overheating and rupturing, but they discovered there was no water left in the hydrants to spray.

What?

This tells me that the responding FD was aware of the contents of the tanks... which is good... and were attempting to take the correct course of action to prevent a rupture.  In the end, despite the heat from the fire and the intensity of the explosion, the tanks remained intact (per the article).

The fact that the hydrants were dry is quite troubling.  Since hydrants are fed via the same water system that feeds everything else, this means that either the valve after the T for the hydrant feed was shut off, a valve was shut off up the line from the T that branches off to the hydrant, or water service was disrupted at the feeding tower.  I would find it quite difficult to believe that a) the tower was empty and b) the pump feed line for the tower was insufficient to supply the necessary demand.

I am very familiar with the way water lines are run.  I've drawn them, submitted them for review with city water departments (in Texas) and inspected as-builts for compliance.  Hydrant lines, at least in Texas, are 6" and tapped into the street main with their own valve that remains open unless there is an active inspection or the hydrant is being decommissioned.  A dry hydrant that was expected to be in service is indeed an oddity and needs to be explained.

This guy shows an aerial view of the disaster area which he says shows no crater, meaning no missile/projectile he says.
He does show an interesting trail towards what it might've been.....

If he ordered a missile strike on West, Tx Fertilizer plant. Then yea I think he should probably be arrested.
