Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Mon, 02/13/2017 - 01:50.

Tens of thousands of people have been fleeing California towns downstream from the Oroville Dam after fears of an imminent collapse of its spillway prompted an evacuation order. Authorities are seeking to stem the breach with the help of helicopters. “Immediate evacuation from the low levels of Oroville and areas downstream is ordered. This is NOT A Drill. This is NOT A Drill. This in NOT A Drill,” says the statement posted on the Butte County Sheriff’s Facebook page. The statement refers to the Lake Oroville Dam, located 105 km (65 miles) north of Sacramento.

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 02/12/2017 - 14:44.

 Please take a minute and review the ACLU's citizen's rights review at this link.   Click through the pages of the ACLU review.    

One suggestion that the ACLU did not make is turn on your telephone voice audio recorder and leave the phone in your pocket - maybe a recording could be helpful later.

Good luck.

Oroville, Calif. spillway failure - IMO absolutely can endanger dam itself.

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 02/12/2017 - 13:39.


The image above from the latimesgraphics makes it look (at least to me) that the primary dam is concrete - it is not concrete - it is dirt!   The prmary dam appears so vertical  (camera lense issue) that I thought it had to be concrete - no, it's "engineered" compacted dirt.

The reason a name search would not find the server is because the domain name had expired.  

Admin did not realize the expiration was approaching because emails which in the past were forwarded to admin from the registrar had been interrupted - no longer forwarded via other terminated domains.

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Sun, 02/05/2017 - 22:09.

There have been almost 13,000 death threats made against President Trump since the Inauguration. That is almost 1,000 death threats per day. And what has the Secret Service done? They have made one arrest. Madonna is allowed to stand outside the White House and threaten to blow it up and nothing happens to her. This is why President Trump must have his own security.

 Eric J Brewer: Forest Gump is smarter than Mayor Frank Jackson. I'm amazed at how after nearly 12 years in office Jackson doesn't understand that he's been “suckered” by Chief of Police Calvin Williams, Safety Director Michael McGrath and Executive Assistant Martin Flask. As mayor I'd fire all three my first day on the job. I'd hope they had sense enough to resign.

Christians Need To Stop Being So Naive About Muslim Immigration Many Christians have been lulled into childish view of world

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Sat, 01/07/2017 - 17:36.
Many Christians have been lulled into a childish view of the world and think that deep down Muslims are not too different from them.
Soon after the November attack at Ohio State University, we learned the Somali Muslim perpetrator had been welcomed to the United States as a refugee by Catholic Charities of Dallas. This bit of news caught my attention because years ago I worked there for a brief time.
