Yuuge Oroville Dam’s Shredding Concrete: Trump’s Gang is Cracking

Yuuge Oroville Dam’s Shredding Concrete: Trump’s Gang is Cracking

By Russell Imrie, Washington DC, February 12, 2017

The Crumbling Face of Trump’s out-of-control three-week old administration is exposing huge cracks in the struggling White House. Danger for the nation.

Mud, trees, rocks and debris pushed by overflowing river flows have destroyed the concrete spillway at giant Oroville Dam in California’s Sierra foothills.

A huge chasm has opened up across the spillway and State officials and workers are scrambling to mitigate an unexpected catastrophe. Damage to the dam is expected to cost up to $200 million in repairs, when and if, the water stops coming–maybe this summer. From barely containing any water at the peak of the latest draught to massive overflows, the situation is similar to the crumbling of Donald Trump’s presidency today. Unexpected flows of “reality”, the persistent gravity pulling digging journalists and intelligence investigators who smell blood or horrible ethical and security cracks, and the overwhelming flood of ugly holes in the President’s credibility are building to a disastrous point. The “emperor’s clothes” are falling apart.

Micheal Flynn from the New Yorker – who bought this so-called concrete?

The Washington Post today published incredibly damaging details on the lies of Micheal Flynn–and more concrete flaked off and added to the swamp of mud and debris threatening power generators and a state salmon hatchery.

Who’s at the controls?

Saturday (yesterday) an “unstable”  United Airlines pilot was removed from a plane in Austin, Texas.

Internal White House fiascos such as Nordstromgate, chaotic Tweets by the President at all hours sowing confusion, stupid innovative use of “alternate facts“, and sleazy financial ties are all inherently unstable conditions that must be addressed by citizens, if not the mercenary GOP. The opaque associations that are sprouting up through the White House staff and Trump’s closest advisors is a mud wallow. The nations’ security, honor, and rule of law are at stake. Maybe the pilot should be escorted out of the cockpit.

A West Coast Thing?

Film review May 9, Montreal

The Pearl Button, Patricio Guzman’s spacey expository account of the obscure atrocity events Christian missionaries, empire-driven Europeans, and the nascent local regime inflicted on Southern Chile’s isolated tribes up into the 1970’s. Supported by the US, Pinochet’s bloody tyranny brooked no critics, especially those with any indigenous pretensions.

 The sad history flows up to recent underwater recoveries of massive steel weights that sank humans (living and dead) thrown from helicopters. 

The butchery included bounties on testicles and breasts. Like California’s grotesque history, little known and remarkable in its bloodthirsty course, the Pearl Button illustrates the covered-up savagery Chile hides behind high-tech successes like incredible telescope arrays atop the Andes. 

  1. World class takes on a new meaning on this edge of the West Coast, but few dare to reveal what it really means as well as Guzman.
