Hillary's Exit

After entering the 2008 Democratic primary season as an "inevitable" frontrunner winner, Hillary Clinton conceded defeat to Barack Obama.

Clinton Ending Candidacy, Supporting Obama
June 5, 2008
Her path to the nomination inevitable no more, Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to announce she is ending her groundbreaking candidacy and supporting Barack Obama, her rival in a presidential quest for the ages. Clinton prepared to declare Saturday that she is backing the Illinois senator after Democratic congressional colleagues made clear they had no stomach for a protracted intraparty battle once Obama secured the 2,118 delegates necessary to clinch the nomination. A presidential contender who announced 17 months ago that she was "in it to win it," the former first lady plans to end her quest with a more humble plea for party unity. In truth, she had little choice. Hours after Obama sealed the nomination, Democrats coalesced around his candidacy, sending a strong signal to Clinton that it was time to bow out. The announcement closed an epic five-month nominating battle pitting the first serious female candidate against the most viable black contender ever.

Hillary steadily lost, starting with her loss in the first primary state, Iowa. Where the road to her withdrawal zigged and zagged back and forth, her delegate count steadily fell behind Obama's.

The postmortem on Hillary's defeat lists many factors, including the fact that Hillary's campaigners were arrogant and assumed an inevitable win so they did not plan for a possible need to campaign past Super Tuesday. Per the Zetas, the assumption that they could use election fraud, ala the Karl Rove assist with Diebold and other insider assists, was part of this bravado. Per the Zetas, election fraud was indeed in place in New Hampshire, which Hillary won and which did NOT align with exit polls. Thereafter, election fraud was prevented, so exit polls did reflect the announced results.

ZetaTalk Insight 1/10/2008: Was New Hampshire compromised? Election statistics point out that where hand counting was done, the lead expected by Obama held. Where counted by Diebold, Hillary unaccountably won. The polls going into the caucus had Obama ahead by at least 10 points, and exit polls substantiated this. This was the margin counted in those districts which hand counted results. Clearly, something is suspect. Will the Democratic primary then be fixed? Not hardly. The Puppet Master, who desires the Bush/Cheney administration to be politically decapitated, is hardly interested in a replacement crew. He will now intervene, we predict, in the manner he did in 2006, to ensure valid elections. Obama appears to him as someone with whom he can negotiate, someone with whom he can find common interests such as preserving the economy and sustaining industrial capacity. His monitors knew voter fraud was a possibility, per our warnings, but did not act in time. They won't be taken by surprise a second time, we predict.

Hillary has insisted during her campaign that she was "vetted" where Obama was not. It was clear that Republicans wanted her to be the nominee, as there was so much dirty laundry just waiting to be aired again. So why was Hillary insisting she was "vetted" and her past would not be a problem?

Insight 2/9/2008: The fact that there is dirt on Hillary is no secret. The Clintons' long years in the White House, renting out the Lincoln bedroom for contributions, the illegal contributions from a Chinese source, Hsu, a man now under indictment, pardoning felons as a favor to friends, experimenting with lesbianism during college years, and almost constant cooperation with lobbyists and large corporations during her political career - all are known. That Hillary and Bill are refusing to recognize that Obama is the better nominee is due to selfishness on their part. They would rather have a crack at the White House and have the Democratic party lose to the Republicans than not have their chance. Simple as that.

The Zetas early on predicted that the party elders and superdelegates would arrange for a sudden "death" of Hillary's campaign at some point. Note the accuracy of their prediction, made in February, 2008.

ZetaTalk Prediction 2/23/2008: Hillary, and in particular Bill, will not go quietly, but the drama will occur mostly behind the scenes. As has been noted, most of the superdelegates have not endorsed. Hillary and Bill want to go to the convention and haggle until they get their way - wear the delegates down. They have been doing this behind the scenes already. The Clintons will be threatened with massive public action against them unless they concede. The threat will include having almost all the superdelegates and certainly the major players such as Pelosi and Gore endorse Obama, en masse. This would be a supreme embarrassment to the Clintons, forcing them to crawl forward with a demoralized campaign and facing ridicule in the press. The alternative would be to have Hillary concede.

There were many reasons why Obama's campaign succeeded where Hillary's did not, but in sum it was because she did not run a good campaign, did not manage well, where Obama did. Where Obama's campaign was intent on fighting in every state, Hillary's campaign avoided caucus states and assumed only the big states would be needed. Hillary selected close friends to manage her campaign, choosing comfort over competence. Hillary took money from the big donors, lobbyists and PAC's, her friends in essence, where Obama structured his campaign as a grassroots endeavor via the Internet. Thus, Hillary hit a financial ceiling where Obama did not. His was simply a better managed campaign, on all fronts. So why didn't the superdelegates come out for Obama earlier? Per the Zetas, it was due to fear of the Clintons. The Zetas hinted at this rage and vindictiveness, which as the presumptive heads of the Democratic party up until now have given the Clintons power over the delegates. Note the accuracy of the Zeta statements about the Clinton rage and fear of retaliation, as noted in this recent article emerging on just this issue!

Those Loyal to the Clintons take Note of those who were Not
June 11, 2008
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was gracious in her full-throated endorsement of Senator Barack Obama. But that does not mean all is forgiven by others in the Clinton universe. As the Obama bandwagon has swelled, so have the lists of people Clinton loyalists regard as some variation of "ingrate," "traitor" or "enemy," according to the associates and campaign officials. These are people who should know better than to ask the former president or first lady for a job recommendation for a son-in-law. While Hillary Clinton has a short list of people who disappointed her, Bill Clinton, who reportedly has an encyclopedic memory of all the people he has helped, employed or appointed over the years, apparently has a far longer one.

ZetaTalk Prediction 4/29/2008: What is holding the superdelegates back from frankly endorsing Obama? Fear of Clinton rage, which has shown itself recently when Richardson endorsed Obama and when Speaker of the House Pelosi dared to suggest that the will of the people should prevail. Pelosi was threatened by Clinton's principal backers, who in essence stated that their money should call the shots. The party elders have decided on a path that will limit the Clinton rage. The Clintons are expected to hold to their argument that Hillary wins among Democrats in the big blue states, and insist that Michigan and Florida be allowed to be seated as is from the January illicit primaries. It is then that the boom will be lowered. The party elders, including Pelosi, Al Gore, and Howard Dean are aware of which direction the supposedly undecided superdelegates are leaning. Pelosi, as head of the House, listens to their hand-wringing all the time, and as the chair of the upcoming Denver convention gets phone calls from superdelegates not in Washingon DC. She has the counts, and has advised those worried about the Clinton wrath to hold off so they can all endorse as a block. When it is clear that Obama has won more states, won more pledged delegates, and won more of the popular vote, then the superdelegates as a block will put him over the top. This will be sudden death for the Clinton ambitions.

The issue of Hillary as Vice President came up early, during a rally Hillary held where this question came from the audience, supposedly. Dubbed the "dream ticket", Hillary surrogates pushed this.

ZetaTalk Insight 5/10/2008: Hillary is persisting for two reasons. One, she hopes Obama will make a slip that will be so severe that the delegates, both pledged and superdelegates, will turn to her to save the party. Two, she wants a concession from Obama, specifically a Vice President position where she and Bill can in essence run the presidency and ignore Obama. All the talk of a possible "dream ticket" is coming from Clinton herself, or from Clinton surrogates such as George Stephanopoulos of ABC TV news, and thence has been put out for public discussion by the media pundits who always need something to talk about. Obama won't offer this to her, for obvious reasons including her negative polling. He will not need her, and will come up with a VP who will meet all she could bring to the ticket.

Per the Zetas, the VP position was the subject of discussion during the secret meeting Hillary insisted upon prior to her conceding the election. Per the Zetas, this is a dance that Obama will win, as he won't pick her as the VP.

Obama, Clinton Ditch Press for Secret Meeting
June 6, 2008
A stealthy meeting Thursday night between former presidential rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is no longer a secret, but what they discussed - and whether they said the words "vice president" - remains a mystery.

ZetaTalk Insight 6/7/2008: It may have ended on a pleasant note, but was not cordial during the hour. Hillary wants the VP position, which she denies in public. She is holding onto her delegates with her suspended campaign, not to simply pay her debts off, though this is a factor, but to force a vote at the convention. Obama will counter her plot by selecting his choice well ahead of the convention, making this known, and working closely with his choice. His votes at the convention in any case will outnumber her, and Pelosi can arrange the voting order so Hillary as a choice will be a moot point. The games go on, but Hillary's options diminish.

Gardening Boom

With the rise in the price of food staples, many families are turning to gardening as a means of lowering their food budget.

As Food Prices Shoot Up, so Do Backyard Gardens
May 15, 2008
With gasoline prices soaring and food costs not far behind, the number of Americans planning to grow their own backyard vegetables this year is up sharply. Gardening organizations, seed wholesalers, and local nurseries are all reporting hikes in the number of people buying vegetable seeds and starter plants. It's a trend that started slowly several years ago, spurred by concerns about food safety, food quality, and global warming, say garden mavens. But this year's gasoline and food price spikes have had what could be called a "Miracle-Gro" effect on the backyard garden movement. This year, 39 percent of people with backyards told the Garden Writers Association they planned to grow vegetables this year. That's up 5 percent from last year, after remaining relatively stable with only small increases for much of the past decade.

Home gardens have been highly recommended by the Zetas, who advise also that people get familiar with how to save seed and save their own seed. The current crop failures have been predicted by the Zetas, going into the pole shift.

ZetaTalk Warning 7/15/1995: As we described earlier, going into the cataclysms the weather will become unpredictable, with torrential rainstorms where not expected, and droughts likewise where not expected. Extremes of temperature will be experienced. Unusually warm winters, where the trees and shrubs will start to bud, thinking spring, and then be subjected to frost. Similarly, frosts will come late in the spring, almost into summer, killing the buds which have already put forth their tender shoots. Where today the world balances these situations, shipping produce around the world, during the years coming close to the time of the reappearance of Planet X, all parts of the world will experience extremes. Backyard gardens, tendered carefully by watchful eyes, will survive. But the large cash crops that supply crowded population centers will find little to market, and the prices will go up accordingly. At first, stores put up against such times will be tapped. After a bit, these stores will run down, and governments will get nervous. Helping handouts, from countries better off to those in desperation, will stop. Those groups who have prepared, and are relying on themselves and their own carefully tended gardens, will not find themselves pinched between starvation and hostilities. Fortunately, the easiest produce to grow is that most economical as foodstuffs. Humans have but to return to their recent past and relearn these lessons.

Food stocks, which the government keeps in case of emergencies, are also depleted and this is no longer a secret.

Concerned with CCC Inventories
June 6, 2008
According to the May 1, 2008 USDA's Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) inventory report there are only 24.1 million bushels of wheat in inventory, so after this sale there will be only 2.7 million bushels of wheat left the entire CCC inventory. Our concern is not that we are using the remainder of our strategic grain reserves for humanitarian relief. Our concern is that the U.S. has nothing else in our emergency food pantry. There is no cheese, no butter, no dry milk powder, no grains or anything else left in reserve. The only thing left in the entire CCC inventory will be 2.7 million bushels of wheat which is about enough wheat to make ½ of a loaf of bread for each of the 300 million people in America. The CCC is a federal government-owned and operated entity that was created to stabilize, support, and protect farm income and prices. CCC is also supposed to maintain balanced and adequate supplies of agricultural commodities and aid in their orderly distribution.

Midwest Flooding

The Earth is in what the Zetas describe as the bellows of the wobble, where the Earth first leans her magnetic N Pole toward the west during the Figure 8 wobble, compressing hot air from the Gulf where it reaches up into the Midwest, and then leans her magnetic N Pole toward the East later in the day, drawing cold air from Alaska into the Midwest. This has created flooding of almost Biblical proportions for the Midwest during the summer of 2008.

ZetaTalk Explanation 6/7/2008: The wobble causes a lean that pushes cold air from Greenland down onto the N American continent when the US is anticipating dawn. Then for sundown the wobble causes a lean that pushes cold air from Alaska down over the N American continent. What this does is create air pressure above which traps the hot air in the lower half of the continent. This is likely to continue through the summer, creating a cooler than usual summer for the north, hotter than normal for the south.

U.S. Midwest Flooded as Mississippi, Cedar River Rise
June 11, 2008
Rising rivers left parts of the U.S. Midwest facing record flooding, as some cities declared mandatory evacuations with thousands of homes inundated, roads damaged and levees at risk of failing. The National Weather Service said a total of 200 locations are flooded, and issued warnings for Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Oklahoma and Montana. The deluge in some Iowa towns reached an all-time high following days of heavy rainfall, according to the service. More rain and some storms are predicted today and tomorrow in the Midwest. The Mississippi River may continue to flood along points of a 200-mile stretch from Dubuque, Iowa, to Gregory Landing, Missouri, as tributaries swell the river, the National Weather Service said.

Notable catastrophes were Lake Delton in Wisconsin, where an earthen dam broke releasing water from the 245 acre manmade lake near the Dells. Dramatic footage of this breach was caught on video. There was no explanation for why the dam suddenly broke, though saturated soil and high water levels would likely be factors.

In their warnings about the coming time of the pole shift, the Zetas have emphasized the dangers of rampaging waters more than they have emphasized the dangers of earthquakes and climate change. Beyond the dangers of living on coastlines during the hour of the shift, due to sloshing ocean water, there is the danger of flooding rivers. For instance, the Mississippi River.

ZetaTalk Warning 2001: The Mississippi River will rise during the drenching rains that follow immediately after a pole shift, the ocean waters evaporated into the air during the worldwide hurricane that occurs during each pole shift condensing out of the air in a fury. Rivers that feed into the main rivers emptying a continent will be affected by several factors that will cause flooding beyond what those living along their banks suppose could ever happen. Flooding today is a comparatively local affair, in the US affecting several states at most. Where one river swells, another is not so affected, and thus the drainage happens more rapidly than it would if all the rivers were swollen. During the pole shift, there will be torrential rains everywhere, on and off, as the clouds are dropping water whipped up from the oceans.

The Mississippi will drain a wide area experiencing torrential rainstorms, and will put any bordering land at risk of flood surges, no matter how high the hill. Large amounts of water may pass though, at great speed, and when encountering an obstruction such as a hill, rise up as the path of least resistance. These flood surges will not be gentle, so escape in a boat, which would capsize and tumble in the roistrous waves, is not likely. The horrific backwash caused by a Mississippi unable to empty into the sloshing Gulf will reach as far inland as Missouri and Kentucky, increasing the flooding along the rivers that drain into the Mississippi. Low lying states along the Gulf such as Mississippi and Louisiana, which border the Mississippi where it drains into the Gulf, can expect to be under water.

The inability of tributaries flowing into the Mississippi to drain has been dramatically shown by the problems in Iowa, where the Cedar River has topped its banks - 20 feet or more over flood stage levels, at what officials describe as a "500 year flood".

Midwest Braces for More Flooding
June 10, 2008
Sodden communities in the upper Midwest braced for more flooding on Wednesday as rising rivers threatened to overcome levees protecting many downtown areas. Officials in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, ordered the evacuation of parts of the city as the Cedar River continued to rise. In Waterloo, part of a railroad bridge collapsed into the river and officials decided to evacuate some neighborhoods because of the rising waters. Midamerican Energy has shut off gas to all businesses and residences in the 100-year flood plain and will soon extend that shutoff to customers in the 500-year flood plain. Alliant Energy is preparing the downtown electrical system, he said, to operate in a flood by sandbagging around vents to the underground electrical lines. It was also encouraging downtown businesses to plan for the loss of electrical service.

Sandbagging around the city of Cedar Rapids did not hold, with the city inundated on June 11, 2008.

The Zetas have predicted that during the hour of the pole shift Iowa will be virtually underwater. Where that prediction seemed extreme when made back in 2001, does it not now seem realistic?

Prediction 2001: Lying between the Missouri and the Mississippi rivers, Iowa will find itself under water during the deluges that accompany the pole shift. It will take many weeks for the water to drain away, and due to the continuing rains, will find itself soggy for months and even years afterwards.

I have neighbors whose homes are threatened here in Wisconsin. What I learned is that one should turn off the electricity in the home at the main breaker in the breaker box and shut down the gas line to any appliances in the home. Note the New York Times article above states this was being done for the city of Cedar Rapids. Electricity and water are a dangerous combination, resulting in electrocution of anyone wading in the water, potentially. Open gas lines where the pilot light has been snuffed in proximity to sparking from shorts in electrical connections nearby can start fires. As odd as it might seem to worry about fires during a flood, where water is everywhere, the portions of a home above water can burn. During disasters, it is the domino effect that is the most unexpected aspect. Another aspect is clean drinking water and sewage treatment. If the flood waters override the sewage treatment facilities, raw sewage joins the flood waters and the sewers do not drain and back up. These points were a concern in Iowa, per the article below - the domino effect, again.

River Slowly Dropping, but Iowa town still Flooded
June 14, 2008
Hotels implored guests to use water only for drinking. The city's newspaper, The Gazette, continued to cover the story with the help of emergency generators. But the floodwaters were just outside the front door, and the place had no running water. Portable bathrooms were set up outside for the staff.
