    Monsanto Chemtrails-LAPD Silenced on Hastings Assassination

    in Radio

    The LAPD and The LAFD have been ordered to shut up and not speak to media about the cover-up of facts and evidence relating to the mysterious car crash resulting in the death of Rolling Stone Journalist Michael Hastings. Mr. Hastings investigative reporting brought down General Stanley McChrystal who was in charge of the Afghanistan war and previously the highly secretive Black-Ops operation at the pentagon.
    Mr. Hastings was out-right threatened by one of the general's killers that they "would hunt him down and kill him if they didn't like what he wrote about the general". They must not have been happy about his writing since it caused the general to have to resign.
    At the time of his assassination, Michael was about to publish an investigative report on the CIA that would have supposedly been the biggest story to come out against the agency.
    Witnesses said the car "exploded" while driving down the road. Its engine and transmission ended up 100-200 feet from the car in the opposite direction.
    Ordering the Police and Fire officials to shut-up proves further someone has something to hide, wonder who?

    The need for heroes

    in Education

    Approximately 1 month after the tragic events of 9/11, Brett Hill (a South Pasadena Firefighter/Paramedic) met with a neighboring LAFD friend who had just returned from working alongside FDNY firefighters at Ground Zero. Hill asked his friend what moved him the most during his deployment in lower Manhattan. His friend replied, "As we were getting ready to leave we were shaking the hands of the FDNY Firefighters we had worked with for 2 weeks--one firefighter grabbed my hand tightly--looked me straight in the eyes and said--PLEASE DON'T FORGET US." Those 4 words led Hill to begin a project that would work to get a 9/11 Tribute Patch on the uniformed sleeves of all firefighters across the country to help honor and remember the heroes of 9/11. Tune in as we broadcast LIVE from the Bensenville Public Library on September 11th as we visit with Brett Hill and look forward into the future of the 9-11 Patch Project.
