Corps Warns Of Possible Heavy Rainfall In Upper Basin, Press & Dakotan, July 11, 2011:

The Corps of Engineers is maintaining record releases at both Fort Randall Dam in Pickstown and Gavins Point Dam in Yankton amidst a forecast calling for as much as 3 inches of rainfall in the Missouri River basin. […]

“The reservoirs, especially at Oahe and Fort Randall, are so close to the crest that we have very limited flexibility with releases downstream,” [Jody Farhat with the water management office in Omaha] said.

          Whoopie,
          I am an HP regular and it really disturbs me that Nuclear Cheerleaders are able to post their propaganda ad nauseum while many great anti-nuclear posters have been banned.
          All we can do is keep on keepin’ on.

        Speaking of this, we all should have a plan A,B,and C. Meaning and secondary link, third link etc. to communicate if ENENEWS.COM goes down. Any suggestions? One we can post updates, links much like this site.

        • livelife

          I found enenews months back from a link from naturalnews.com. I’m one of the quiet followers who come on here EVERY DAY to get updates and I really appreciate all of you who post regularly. Thank you!!! In regards to backup, Mike Adams from Natural News posted an article and at the end discusses knowing the IP addresses of all key websites. Maybe the admin here on enenews and the other sites out there sharing this great information can share their IP addresses so we can go directly in case these sites get diverted.

          From the article: …To take this one step further, the White House could force ISPs to remap DNS requests so that all web browsers automatically point to the White House website, no matter what web address you type in.

          Searching for sports scores? You’ll be rerouted to the White House alert page. Checking your sinking stock portfolio online? You’ll get the White House page. Researching how to grow your own medical marijuana using hydroponics? You’ll get the White House page yet again.

          This type of technology can be implemented right now, by the way. It’s more than an internet “kill switch,” it’s an internet “reroute switch.” And it may already be in place without us even knowing about it.

          The only way to circumvent this tactic and get directly to the web server you want is to know the IP address of the server. For example, NaturalNews.com can be reached at: http://174.132.185.226

          If you keep this address handy (bookmark it or whatever), then the White House cannot reroute your website requests via DNS. This is why it’s a good idea to know the IP addresses of all the key websites you’ll need to access to get good information during a “total information blackout” attempt by the U.S. government. Remember: The Internet is the last place on Earth where you can get truthful information about what’s really happening. That is exactly why it will be targeted for a shutdown during the next big crisis to strike America.

          • TraderGreg

            The same happened in Canada, about 20 years ago. Everyone from the Reform Party was branded as idiot. The parties on the left and right were shitting their pants, because there was fast opening gap between them, and the Reform Party was taking electorate there fast. Fast forward to today: the Conservative party is history now, the Reform party took them over, and they are they won the federal election.

            The same dynamics are in USA now…

            The same old communist trick – if you do not agree with us, you are idiot, and need to be locked up. The truth is in between, of course, and the media is smearing everyone around (see Soviet techniques) on behalf of their parties.

            I consider myself neutral now, although I must admit that early on, when I was in Canada, I voted for the Reform Party. I would rather vote Ron Paul, but he also is wrong on many issues IMHO.

            I consider myself 100% neutral – I cannot see a single common sense candidate over here in USA.

            Be careful, with this extreme smear. The smear is part of the political game. I cannot see any reference to MB saying that blacks were better as slaves. Did she say it, or did someone in MSM imply it?

            I wish all your candidates all the best. I am neutral politically, but would rather not see the extreme smear that is prevalent in MSM, and would rather see a rational discussion, based on merits.

            Cheers to all on ENE.
            Greg

  • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

    @Whoopie…..Bachman..just mentioning her name is amusing!

    • Whoopie Whoopie

      Did you hear? She said that Blacks were better off as slaves? Saw the Headline at HP. She is sickening.

      • gerryhiles

        In her sick way Bachman is probably right – come to think – like Australian Aboriginals were kinda ‘better off’ when they too were virtual slaves (not officially).

        OMG, what a world Whoopie!!

        99% of us are effective slaves to a 1%.

        • Whoopie Whoopie

          Spot on comment Gerry. Your right of course, we are slaves to that damn 1% that O allowed to keep their money. Their all crooks. Makes me so angry!

            Might put a bit of a smlie on your face Whoopie … an old WW2 song which went something like this:

            FUKEM all, FUKEM all,

            The long and the short and the tall.

            You’ll get no promotion, this side of the ocean.

            So cheer up my lads, FUKEM all.

      • teamplayer

        The fact that Bachmann can even be considered as a legitimate candidate says a lot about the current state of our country, and it’s not good.

        • gerryhiles

          Not good anywhere teamplayer.

          We have a prime minister who is commonly called “Juliar” Gillard – similar to “The Bliar” in the UK.

          Can’t be shifted and the ‘alternatives’ are worse.

          And what is the ‘alternative’ to O’Bomber?

You might be seeing BIG PROTESTS BY US OLD ONES soon. It WILL end either UGLY or RIGHT, no inbetween.

            And I’m sorry about your PM. It seems there are TOOLS EVERYWHERE. That’s what we need to change. HOw is the question on everybody’s minds.

          • teamplayer

            An alternative?
            We are in a no-win situation.
            Typically when a sitting President is primary challenged, the opposing candidate wins.
            A Progressive third party would most likely result in a Republican victory.
            We are living with a one-party system disguised as a two-party system, IMO. There are some decent Democratic legislators left, but very few.
            My favorite Senator is Independent Bernie Sanders.

          • Whoopie Whoopie

            THERE’S A QUESTION that’s been on my mind! Is Sanders RUNNING? Him and Boxer? As far as the SYSTEM – it’s tilted to put only 1 party IN. The Party of INDUSTRY. ALL OF ‘EM. Sick.

          • teamplayer

            Whoopi,
            Unfortunately, as an Independent, it would be difficult for Bernie to run against established parties with MONEY. When Perot ran, he used his own money to get things going.
            Until we get the money out of elections we are scrood.
            Boxer is my Senator and I have had the pleasure of meeting her.
            She’s not perfect, but she’s far better than most.

          • Whoopie Whoopie

            TY TeamP. I was curious and would vote for Bernie. I VOTED for Perot too. Any good people just cant WIN against INDUSTRY.

  • nuclearpowerisdeath

    hey whoopie and others, I wouldn’t even waste any time messing with these dead sickened souls on the st. louis paperr’s site, if you guys have better luck elsewere that’s great.

    I’m thinking I’m going to set up a myspace and facebook, get set up with some spamming software and write a nice informatie article and collect all media who has not covered this story, and send to millions….if I can pull it off.

    Anyone can send ONE mass mail, and you must put a way for people to remove you from future mailings. There might be other nuances but this is why most spam people get is legal. I also think its why we get so much crap to prevent people from communicating. It’s obvious that the big lie of nuclear power and nuclerar weapons being good for the world needs to be spread far and wide. They have more advanced tech now for weapons and energy, they should use those if they find it so necessary. We only have one planet and once you damage it with radiation, and I don’t mean the solar kind, there’s no going back.
