I’m an earthquake junkie, checking the earthquake maps throughout the day. Anyone who’s looked at the activity, whether on a daily or weekly basis, has noticed that things have been very active for awhile, including all along the west coast. Oregon has had earthquakes recently, off shore as well as inland. There was a 4.3 on the 3rd of this month 234 miles from the coastal town of Waldport.
ZenHaven reports on ’silent earthquakes’ occurring in Washington and Oregon:
Parts of Washington and Oregon are in the midst of silent earthquakes this week. You can’t feel this so-called “slow slip” quake and it doesn’t cause damage. Still, scientists want to learn more about the recently discovered phenomenon.
Little is certain so far, but there’s a possibility these deep tremors could trigger a damaging earthquake or serve as a warning bell for the Big One.
Discouraging and maybe surprising, given Portland’s, like Eugene’s counter culture vibe. But they went ahead and did it and one has to wonder.
At the back of my mind limped the dark thought that all the authoritative sources cited concerning the glowing, sceeching, impervious metal boxes on Oregon coasts were covering up, or at best, dupes in a larger cover-up. I also thought that researchers, like Linda Moultan Howe, who interviewed these authorities, gave up too easily.
So the story goes, residents insist they have not seen a thing, someone made a YouTube video on how it was all a hoax, authorities deny anything strange at all. And that’s very likely.
Still, that nagging thought of a “what if” in the back of my mind. Not a “what if” as in alien from outer space, but something to do with Fukushima, and/or covert government activity. When I told Jim this story of the strange metal boxes and the seeming “no there there” aspect his immediate response was that these boxes have something to do with monitoring radiation.
Now if that’s so, it seems, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, pretty rash to go up to these boxes– for example, using them as material for ones art.
More importantly, if it’s true, the truth about the radiation levels continues to be hidden from us. Throw in distractions and disinformation about aliens, UFOs, and hoaxes, and there you have it.
(I was just contacted by someone who said they had seen these boxes on California beaches, and she felt that boxes she had seen are related to the ones in Oregon. I’m awaiting details.)
More reports of humming metal boxes appearing on the Oregon coast:UFO sightings reveal more strange metal boxes along coastal beaches | HULIQ
At first look it seems very likely these boxes are debris from Japan. But there is the typical “wait there’s more” anomalous elements that ties these boxes in with UFOs, at least according to the this article. Referring to the photo accompanying the article of one of these boxes at Bray’s Point, Oregon, it’s noted the boxes have been seen before:
The photograph that accompanies this report – taken during the afternoon of Feb. 8 near Bray’s Point — of yet another strange metal box stuck in the surf up is one of a possible group of a dozen or more that have been sited up and down West Coast beaches. Meanwhile, the British government also photographed similar huge metal boxes on beaches in Sri Lanka in the late 1990’s and in early 2004 and 2005. The discovery of the boxes is detailed in updated previously classified reports from the British government that document sightings of unidentified flying objects by both the military and the general public dating back to the 1950s.
According to the coastal UFO researchers, there’s been an increase in UFO sightings recently, coinciding with the boxes.
The boxes are heavy — “not movable” — ring, or hum, glow, and coincide with UFO sightings.
While I have no idea what these are of course, it seems irresponsible to go up to these boxes and touch them or attempt to move them.
State vs. Feds. Gil Gilberston, Josephine county sheriff, has written a 13 page document concerning the feds and their legal limits concerning power and general rights trampling. Unraveling Federal Jurisdiction within a State :
This a “must read” for anyone concerned about infringements against the 10th Amendment and federal encroachments in general – like road closures, Wild Lands and Monument designations, mining and other resource uses. In other words, this is for anyone and everybody with an interest – no matter how casual — in accessing the public lands, either as a “resource user” (a rancher or miner) or simply a casual vacationer who enjoys weekend camping.
“If you’d told me two years ago that I would be writing such a document, I would have probably walked away from you shaking my head,” the sheriff notes in the introduction.
“This paper is a result of a clash with the federal [U.S. Forest Service] law enforcement in this county, from citizens complaining of what can only be described as harassment and violations of their rights,” he explains. “The first time I approached the USFS the door closed regarding any discussion. The USFS advised me to file a Freedom of Information (FOI) request. “
Local news reports a cougar sighted near Spencer’s Butte park, a popular hiking area (and, local lore goes, somewhat of a UFO hot spot) — there are rattlesnakes up there, and the occasional cougar report. I can see the Butte if I walk to the corner of my street… not far from me at all. With video and photo.
The day before yesterday all four of our cats were behaving very strangely. I even said to Jim that I wondered if there was an earthquake coming soon, because they were just so “off” — not their usual routine.Very agitated and confused, literally walking in circles sometimes. (In a weird way, not the usual that’s what cats do way.) Each cat has their own personality and what bothers one may not bother the other, but that day, they were all just crazy. Well, turns out there were earthquakes, several, in the area: the Eugene (where I live) and surrounding area, sort of I-5 corridor, extending to the North up towards Portland area, which is about 100 miles from Eugene, and to the south, near Medford:
August 3rd: The Eugene area where I live, had a 1.1.
Besides the “Conspiracy Park” images I came across while walking along the Willamette River, I’ve come across these rock constructs in the water. You can still see stone from the foundation of a structure that used to be there, before the pedestrian bridge was built. Probably remnants of an old power station — the current EWEB (Eugene Water and Electric) buildings are nearby. About a month ago, we had walked this same walk and these rock formations weren’t there. Some one, or probably more than one person, enjoyed themselves creating these rock creations in the river. I realize you can’t see them too well; as I said in my previous conspiracy park post, I’m not a photographer and use a cheap camera. But hopefully you’ll get an idea. Here’s one with a mothy vibe:
This issue has been going on for a long time. Triangle Lake is not far from where I live; it’s only about twenty minutes away or so. For years, the residents in the area have been fighting this, as in other communities in my county as well as Oregon in general. From KVAL:
TRIANGLE LAKE, Ore. – Some residents are calling it an environmental horror story, and on Thursday they got the chance to voice their concerns to the state and federal governments.
Nearly 150 people packed the Grange Hall in Triangle Lake on Thursday night after more than 20 residents say their urine tested positive for dangerous pesticides.
It’s ugly. The meeting was called by “…state and federal agencies…” in order to potentially address the poisoning of an entire community:
In response to years of complaints, state and federal agencies held the meeting to lay out a plan for investigating any possible pesticide exposure. lay out a plan for investigating any possible pesticide exposure.
The article cited here doesn’t mention that residents paid for, out of their own pockets, the testing that proves they’ve been exposed. As one resident said
“One hundred percent of us tested positive for the two most dangerous timber industry pesticides in our urine, and we’re not happy about it,” said Dale Day.
I find it incredible — but not surprising — the agencies are only now just beginning to listen. Maybe, sort of.
Speaking of the Triangle Lake area, it is a very weird area in general. Only speaking for myself, and Jim, we have both felt immediate, oppressive and (for lack of a better word) haunted vibes when driving through there. There’s something about the area that literally feels, on a physical level as well as psychological and emotional, that there is an unseen presences about. I remember one drive out there to look at a house for sale; it sounded like everything we wanted; domed, a few structures, a couple of acres, near water… and the asking price was reasonable. But we couldn’t even get our of the car to look, the further in we drove, the worse this feeling got. We turned around and left. I’ve felt this very time i’ve gone out to the area.
I’m not suggesting this weird feeling has anything to with pesticides. And I realize many people love the area. Only speaking for myself.
Dealing with the feds in this case, I have no idea how this will turn out, but I hope it will turn well for the residents in the area. There’s a bit of hope; field burning was banned and I was convinced that would never happen. It was a long, long fight and an ugly one, but finally, we won on that one.
PACIFIC BEACH, Wash. — For the third time in seven years, a whale was found beached in a popular tourist area in Grays Harbor County.
This time, the gray whale washed ashore near Pacific Beach. The big job for the state is getting the beach cleaned up.
