What is DHS doing in Waco Texas hours before the explosion? Video blogger engages in speculation about some connection to Boston but is clueless what will happen 42 minutes after this was uploaded.
Oh goody, another nutjob conspiracy theory to paint us with.
Why should I click the link and see what some video blogger thinks?
Why - I’ll just wait for our goobermint and our brilliant media peoples to tell me exactly what happened.
/barf and /sarc
and does he show video of them??? or is this some undated and hence unknown footage.
the conspiracy theorists may be right one day but certain;y not today
Cripple, just weird... but yea... could come to that.. when was this thing called in to EMS? If it was that morning.. then this would make some sense.. but if you check the thread.. DHS is saying Ammonium Nitrate at the facility was a big surprise which is why Fire Teams were doing what they were doing... but if DHS knew to be there.. then why not evacuate?
Why look for conspiracy when there is just plain huge incompetence to be found everywhere??
Thats not true.. check the link.. UStream recorded the upload Tuesday at 6:58 PM.. thats as dated as you get.. its contemporaneous.. and in a stream of other non-conspiracy minded reports.. the guy is just doing his thing.. but its a data point. If you watch the thing.. he gets off of his feet and goes and shows you the trucks..
You know he used that same words.. “goobermint” , never heard that term before.
Personally I wonder how many of you are leftists deliberately running with every nutjob theory you can find.
Cass Sunstein has written about the value of conspiracy theory in manipulating the weak minded.
7:29pm was first call about a fire.
I’m a Texan too. Maybe its a Texas thang.
Gooberment. Now a keyord.
Cripple.. obviously, you are NOT big on checking your facts before opening your yap. I have been quiet around here for a while.. but there is a record to check.. and yet you didn’t. So, don’t be surprised if serious people don’t take you seriously..
How does anyone ever solve any crime or solve any riddle? We are really a bunch of sitting ducks, if each time someone raises a question about something, they are shouted down as being “conspiracy kooks”.
We are turning into a very soft country.
Nope.. never heard it.. Was in Dallas last year for Glenn Beck thing.. I was struck by HOW HUGE everything is.. and HOW HOT it gets. Been to Waco years back.. too.. nice town..
Do folks still pull off the road to let you pass?
I have searched and searched reports and not found any mention of when this was called in.. which will come.. I guess.. but.. rather than conspiracy.. lets just talk about why if DHS was there.. weren’t they evacuating???? as the previous Nitrate explosion in Texas killed thousands..
Lets get to the right story and if something even stupider shows up.. we will deal with that..
Me? I’m willing to listen to any crazy nutjob conspracy theory. No matter how wacky or far-fetched.
Whether from Alex Jones Truthers or Hillary Clinton and MSNBC News.
Because oftentimes the “Sandy Hook was an Act” rhetoric is usually far more believable than the contradictory and self-serving dreck that craps out from “official” sources.
Sure do. Out in the boonies, though.
Personal note here. I’m one of the many thousands of I35 travelers that routinely stop in West for kolaches. Have stopped many many times at the Czech Stop. Wonderful place. I read that even as West was literraly blown apart, they didn’t close. They stayed open to serve customers. One time I did more than make a pit stop at the Czech Stop. I drove a few blocks over and toured the downtown and looked over this small town of less than 3000 citizens. I was very impressed. It was and will be again - A Great Town.
Prayers are with West, Texans.
I'm going to randomly hazard a guess that DHS was there as April 19th was right around the corner, and on April 15th, two bombs exploded in Boston during the marathon.
Seems like a reasonable deployment given the unknown nature (and much speculated ‘Tax activist’) of the bombings in Boston and the April 19th anniversary of the deaths in Waco.
bleech...did he also show his wounds????
Anything to divert attention away from Saudi national being deported.
April 19th is the anniversary of the Clinton administration’s massacre of the Branch Dividians, which burned 84 people, including 24 children, alive. Perhaps DHS was anticipating some trouble in Waco on that day.
I didn't check that.. Wanted to confirm the post was genuine so checked before and after to make sure he was from Waco really.. but didn't know anything more than this was a bit off.. and wondered what it means.. I looked and looked in coverage for when this Fire was called in and no luck.
You explanation seems reasonable.. but these guys carry real "Communications" with them.. if this thing was called into 911 system.. and it was.. because Firefighters died on the scene.. in the explosion.. then given the threat.. (that you would have thought someone would have considered.. considering.. Fertilizer Plant..) Why were these guys sitting on their hands and not clearing West at least?
Yea.. whats that about.. all of these stories that DHS didn’t know there was Ammonium Nitrate at a Fertilizer plant?
I think you are right, the Waco anniversary is the reason.
The US government actually keeps a calendar of national and international event anniversaries, and even some private security companies do so as well. They do this because it actually helps ward off, or at least respond to potential anniversary events by pre-positioning.
Video didn’t work right for me. All I saw was someone’s feet.
Another great point.. could be that is what was up.. but it would be a terrible shame that they didn't keep track of what was happening in the surrounding area.. like a fire at a Fertilizer plant.. perhaps..
Thats how it starts.. about half of it.. then he goes for a walk.. this is doing the viral thing.. I suppose.. I am liking the Waco Anniversary theory.. but hating that they didn’t use these trucks to actually do something to save lives..
The audio advances but the video just freezes on his feet. I have a lot of problems with you tube videos and other embedded videos even though I’m on a FIOS 150-75 connection. Problem probably on my end.
The 20th is Hitlers birthday I think. No skin head activity lately.
Same as considering the threats in Lybia...considering it was 9/11?
He needs better shoes.
I use the term gooberment and goobernuts meaning nutty dumb.
Sure bet the FBI now wishes that it had engaged in a little bit of conspiracy theory with respect to the brothers Chechen.
Frankly, it had occurred to me that something might happen, somewhere, on the 19th. Maybe that's why DHS was there.
If there were strangers wandering around the fertilizer place, everyone in town would know about it in 5 seconds flat. That’s how small towns are. Driving one of those DHS vehicles anywhere other than down I35 would have stood out like, well, like a big ash DHS vehicle and people would be out taking pictures of it before it made it a block down the street. Sorry, this vid just doesn’t wash.
Aside from the obvious dates, Waco is on one of the main, if not THE main, highways through Texas. Then there’s Ft. Hood nearby. Sure, seeing one of these vehicles can lead to tin foil hat adjustment, being in Waco wouldn’t indicated a rush to buy stock in Reynold’s Wrap.
What was the timing of the first EMS call from the West Fertilizer Plant?
The West Texas voluntary fire department responded about 7:30 pm CDT to the brush fire at the plant. The explosion occurred about 7:53 pm CDT. I have no idea what the trucks were the guy was filming but if I had to guess I’d say seismograph trucks. jmo/guess only.
Time line at the following link but remember the times shown are EST for some reason.
Also spent time in West years back. Several great little mom ‘n pop shops there for everything from bakeries to cafes to antique shops. Bought a table there. Very friendly people. Have wanted to return for years, but no time yet. Prayers ascend.
First and foremost, the fire was at 7:30pm, and this video was taken somewhere around 2pm according to uStream's timestamp of the live feed (there was a second video on the stream, that was uploaded later, but one was done live. The second video was the one linked to the original post.)
Next, when the fire was reported, volunteer firefighters started to the fire, but at the same time, workers at the nursing home and at the hospital were notified about the fire and started implementing those emergency procedures that were already in place, and started evacuating.
Lastly, absent the explosion, why would DHS respond to a simple fire at a fertilizer plant? These things happen, it isn't all that unusual, and their deployment, if related to the deaths in Waco, was to support local law enforcement days later. I don't see why they'd suddenly race up the road and start pulling people out of their houses. And this fire was more than 20 minutes away, I don't even see how DHS would even be notified of the fire prior to the explosion, much less dispatched.
Unless you're suggesting that DHS would roll up into a town, tap into the 911 system for a town twenty minutes away, and be constantly monitoring communications. That would probably not go over well with anyone, from Texas authorities to local jurisdictions.
Instead of deporting a wife beating muslim who by law should have been deported.
Our glorious SS security forces were driving around Waco looking for more white Christians to shoot.
In my opinion, most government coverups are an attempt to hide failure. Unfortunately they also breed conspiracy theories.
Even worse, conspiracy theories are a valuable tool for discrediting opposition.
How far is Waco from West?
About 20-25 miles.
My guess would be prepping for something on the 19th.
What is there to gain by blowing up a factory? Did they produce anything unique?
This sounds like a horrible industrial accident.
Gobble up that ferminted gubmint cheese, nottin to see cause you’re a know it all sheeple.
I do not have to subscribe to the insanity of the conspiracists...it does not make me sheeple or stupid. God gave you a brain if you chose not to use it you will follow the Alex Jones’s of the world.
Brave, brave anti-conspiracy hero. Welcome to the USSA and give thanks for your Pravda truth.
