  • Flapdoodle Flapdoodle

    Makes me wonder: Who is Mutual of Omaha insured by?

    • StPaulScout StPaulScout

      I’m sure they are in fact insured, it would be like any other company insures their HQ building(s). They no doubt have a very comprehensive DR plan too. Not fun to implement, but this is what it is for.

    • jump-ball jump-ball

      Mutual of Omaha is insured by the Oracle of Omaha, who is insured by the u.s. treasury, who is insured by the federal reserve, who is…wait, Geithner is gone…

  • Elenin Velikovsky Elenin Velikovsky

    in all seriousness, this will rip off the cloak,
    the Apocalypse, removing the veil…there is no money,
    much less any “insurance”.
    Can you imagine?
    Who has got a dime to pay for any major equipment,
    fuel, labor (OK, they’ll just round up slaves at gunpoint),
    to even begin to replace any infrastructure?
    Minnesota shut down their State Gov. –5 Billion Deficit
    with no source of relief.
    Who thinks we are “rebuilding” any of this False Society
    any MORE?

      Dominique, they insinuate that the Kansas State U.
      small experimental reactor was shutdown as high Cesium
      readings were detected. ..because (?) of the Ft. Calhoun
      They do not draw any further evidentiary links,
      causality, only a mention that some hot item was
      detected by four separate sensors, causing shutdown.

    So, if you’re not familiar with Omaha, NE Omaha is the very poor section. The article also mentions “as well as addresses south of Ames and east of 16th Street” ~ sounds pretty nonchalant but they are talking about downtown Omaha where old warehouse buildings now house hundreds and hundreds of folks (like me!).

      Samantha…I hope you will Preserve your Life, and flee
      to the Mountains. Go…

      • samantha

        Oh, don’t doubt it. I’ll find a way to flee for SURE. i am so grateful to people like the one behind this site for keeping us posted (the local news hasn’t mentioned Ft Calhoun for DAYS now).

        Thanks for the kind words ;D

      Samantha our on the ground heroic commentator! A hero in my book in this situation is one that stays safe, helps others when they can, and keeps aquiring and sharing info.

      • samantha

        Unfortunately Dutchsinse – who came here and measured with his geiger counter (before the berm broke) – has had to go back to work. He was the real hero!

        I’ll keep your description in mind, i like that a lot. Esp. the staying safe part…

    “…what to do in case of a catastrophic levy breach…”

    Omaha already issued their evac plan week before last, so who really is behind this new plan, delivered through the fire department suit?

    If Port Calhoun reactor starts to floods more, affecting electrical and cooling, it sounds to me like there’s going to be a last-minute levee break, ‘accidently on purpose’.

    Let’s all take down names and keep notes.

    July 1, 2011 – TULSA – Sources tell 2News that Grand Lake will likely be closed this Fourth of July weekend, due to an explosion of blue-green algae (BGA), and now, the Grand River Dam Authority is advising the public to stay out of Grand Lake waters. “We strongly discourage any body contact with the water at this point,” said Justin Alberty, GRDA corporate communications director. “That means no swimming or any other activities that would bring you into contact with lake water.”

    How best to prepare for a “catastrophic levy breach?:” start taking iodine if you haven’t started already. Have your car packed and ready, and know your escape route.

    I am here in Missouri where actually some reporters can spell “levee” versus the other “levy” (like levy taxes?).

    Offthread… Sorry on an iPhone…have read there has been western wind currents flowing from Los Alamos into SE Arizona… A pressurized front has pushed the toxic fumes in that direction… Stay inside as much as possible until the fires are contained and smoke dispersed.

  • Fall out man!

    The govt will blow the levies up stream to take pressure off the nuke power plants. This warning is to prepare people. Of course, they won’t be admitting they’ve done it. That would be to admit their Nuke plants are unsafe… which of course they are!

    ““The meltdown of a 500-megawatt reactor located 30 miles from a city would cause the immediate death of an estimated 45,000 people, injure roughly another 70,000, and cause $17 billion in property damage.”–Global research.

    Well, we have three reactors in meltdown within thirty miles of some Japanese towns. How many people immediately died? Did people’s deaths get blamed on the tsunami? What about inland cities?
