ANKARA, Turkey — A powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey on Sunday, killing at least 85 people and sparking widespread panic as it collapsed dozens of buildings into piles of twisted steel and chunks of concrete.

Tens of thousands of residents fled into the streets running, screaming and trying to reach relatives on cell phones. As the full extent of the damage became clear, desperate survivors dug into the rubble with their bare hands, trying to rescue the trapped and the injured.

Occupy Movement Infiltrated

The Occupy Wall Street movement which has successfully mounted and is mounting demonstrations around the world in order to bring awareness to the public of the immense disparity between those who have and those who have not, has been infiltrated by a known agent of the state department. Ahmed Maher, a United States State Department funded activist has become involved in the movement, as reported in Wired News.

Ahmed Maher was essential in the organizing of the movement that occurred in Egypt earlier this year. He gave focus to a group of young people who had been loosely organized through Facebook and other similar social sites. Ultimately they brought down the Egyptian Government of Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak, the man who had been in power in Egypt since the assassination of Anwar al-Sadat. He had been Sadat’s vice President and succeeded him into the Presidency. Whereas, Sadat, had been on a conciliatory path with Israel, a path that many believed led to his assassination, Mubarak had a much stronger fist approach to all aspects to the reforms that Sadat had implemented in Egypt prior to his death, which occurred over thirty years ago.

Sources say, operatives of the United States government have been involved in all of the rebellions that have occurred in the Middle East this year, in most cases, as of this date, exchanging one dictator for another, so the question is raised as to what the possible motive for creating the unrest over there would be? The public consumption line is the promoting of Democracy, yet Democracy doesn’t appear to be emerging. Our Republic is not a Democracy, so what interests would the State Department have in infiltrating the “Occupy” movement? While the Occupy Movement is seen as an awakening to the real problems affecting our Nation and World, it must always be remembered that those who have manipulated events and facts in the past, in order to attain their desires, have been perfecting it for decades and it takes little time for them to infiltrate, refocus, and bend ideas, or at least, create a different perspective for public consumption.

Remember, it was not that long ago, although it seems like ancient times now, that all aspects of our society were prospering, incomes could sustain your families with enough for some extracurricular activities, but the elite were not content, it wasn’t good enough that they were making monies and profiting from their investments, they wanted more, the Carlyle group issued their prospectus for the future and with the Soviet Union losing it’s status as a World Power there emerged a window of opportunity for the United States to fill the gap in this void, but according to the report, it would be nice to have a coalescent event, much like Pearl Harbor, in order to forge popular support for American Capital adventures. Jeb Bush and Cheney were just a few of the names who signed the report.®

Near-Earth asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass within 0.85 lunar distances from the Earth on November 8, 2011. The upcoming close approach by this relatively large 400 meter-sized, C-type asteroid presents an excellent opportunity for synergistic ground-based observations including optical, near infrared and radar data. The attached animated illustration shows the Earth and moon flyby geometry for November 8th and 9th when the object will reach a visual brightness of 11th magnitude and should be easily visible to observers in the northern and southern hemispheres. The closest approach to Earth and the Moon will be respectively 0.00217 AU and 0.00160 AU on 2011 November 8 at 23:28 and November 9 at 07:13 UT.

Discovered December 28, 2005 by Robert McMillan of the Spacewatch Program near Tucson Arizona, the object has been previously observed by Mike Nolan, Ellen Howell and colleagues with the Arecibo radar on April 19-21, 2010 and shown to be a very dark, nearly spherical object 400 meters in diameter. Because of its approximate 20-hour rotation period, ideal radar observations should include tracks that are 8 hours or longer on multiple dates at Goldstone (November 3-11) and when the object enters Arecibo’s observing window on November 8th.

Since the asteroid will approach the Earth from the sunward direction, it will be a daylight object until the time of closest approach. The best time for new ground-based optical and infrared observations will be late in the day on November 8, after 21:00 hours UT from the eastern Atlantic and western Africa zone. A few hours after its close Earth approach, it will become generally accessible for optical and near-IR observations but will provide a challenging target because of its rapid motion across the sky.

Although classified as a potentially hazardous object, 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over at least the next 100 years. However, this will be the closest approach to date by an object this large that we know about in advance and an event of this type will not happen again until 2028 when asteroid (153814) 2001 WN5 will pass to within 0.6 lunar distances.
