      Who happened to have a car cam on. Whatever, if planted of course it’s psy ops ‘waco waco waco’, they’re speeding up their chaos, so they have the stupid yapping in circles, before too many catch on to who is behind it all -
      Who owns the federal reserve, foments the fake wars, did 911, Zionists -
      Who is behind ‘homeland’ bs, Zionists-
      Who’s doing this (to stupid sheep who let them), Zionists -

      This one may not be a bomb. The MSM doesn’t cover it much, but the fact is that there have been a huge increase in explosions around the country and world. The author of the Jumping Jack Flash hypothesis explains that the gases Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide are being increasingly emitted up through the sea floor and other bodies of water (such as the Bayou Corne Sinkhole) and that both gases are highly flammable, with HS also being neurotoxic. Locations that stock items capable of absorbing gases, like clothing stores and lumber yards (and car/truck tires also really seem to be a problem) are at much greater risk of explosion than ever before. Methane and HS can also cause otherwise healthy people in low-lying and or coastal areas to “drop dead”. If you’re on Facebook, look for Dutchsinse’s page. He keeps track of a lot of these explosions, ones even happening in vacant homes that have no power or gas turned on, and new cars w/out any leaks and which are turned off and parked – suddenly exploding. But that’s only the beginning of the strangeness. For the most extensive information on how Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide are causing vastly increased numbers of explosive events visit: Please share this information with everyone you know because even in homes without gas lines, these events are still happening on a daily basis.

      • Medusafern

        I forgot to say that the site also lists EVERY explosion occuring everywhere around the world for every day. If you scroll down on the page I’ve provided you’ll see an insanely long list of explosions as well as other unusual events like mass animal die-offs, suspicious deaths in low-lying and/or coastal areas, suspicious vehicle explosions and the like. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with this information. Awareness of it could save a life, although it is likely difficult, for example, to know whether the tires on your car have been exposed to significant plumes of these gases.

      • VikingLima

        Looking at the video few tens of a second before and just after the explosion with the camera knocked off position. that seems uncannily like a missile strike that we saw in the second Iraq war.

        Very creepy.

    • Hawbs

      alright, mort. i’m glad you are on top of things. i bet you put this out in a hurry. lot’s of mess going on to keep the reporters on here busy. anybody remember good ole peace and quiet?

    • whiteness

      lol, most of those pictures are from 2012 and 2008. nice try, a-hole.


        YOUR WHITE-NESS…THE JOKE, (IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT) is on YOU!…those pictures are confirmed from todays explosion…you owe the poster an apology – calling him an a-hole and a cheat…shame on you. L.

      Why does everything have to be a conspiracy with some of you? Is it too hard to believe that a facility that handles extremely flammable and volatile products had an explosion? A truck load of this stuff is what took out the Oklahoma Federal Building. I guess we don’t have to imagine what an entire factory of this stuff will do now.

      • Monticello

        Yea sure just days away from the Waco Massacre’s 20th Anniversary. April 19-20 which has a fire ritual year after year- Waco, OKC, BP Oil, and then the whole week of 2013 from Apr 15-20 we see Boston and now Waco again….yea it’s all just a coincidence.

        And I didn’t even mention Lexington & Concord, Columbine, and Boston’s first Marathon in 1897! All just coincidences.

    • iamamerican

      I live not far from Waco and local news saying the plant was closed at the time of the fire and explosion. 5 or 6 fireman are unaccounted for and 1 policeman also. Someone had to have started the fire under the anhydrous tank, it didn’t explode on its on.

    • Medusafern

      Okay this is the deal, folks. I’ve been in contact with the author of the Jumping Jack Flash hypothesis blog aka Jonny Mnemonic on Facebook, and he has ALL of this figured out. He gave me permission to repost his comments. From his blog, here is the abbreviated version of his hypothesis:

      “The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.”

      And here is what he says about the Waco fertilizer plant explosion. (It has been suggested that a fire started in an anhydrous ammonia tank which then led to the explosion):

      “Looks like burning anhydrous ammonia can result in chemical reactions that end up producing nitric acid. You know what’s explosively flammable with nitric acid? Hydrogen sulfide. There was a story last year where a trailer that had once stored nitric acid simply burst into flame one day. Some hydrogen sulfide probably got into that trailer and found some residual nitric acid that had absorbed into the floor or something. So, maybe it wasn’t the anhydrous ammonia that was the big problem, but the fact that burning it can produce nitric acid. So, copper reactivity with hydrogen sulfide starts a fire. The anhydrous ammonia starts burning, chemical reactions start, nitric acid is produced, which causes bigger explosions and a bigger fire in the presence of hydrogen sulfide, which creates more nitric acid, which causes yet bigger explosions and so on, in a runaway chain reaction that ends up producing mammoth explosions that shakes homes miles away.”

      And: “They may also have had nitric acid tanks at that plant. If they did, then THAT is where I’d be looking. If even a little hydrogen sulfide gas were to get inside a tank of nitric acid then you could have big big problems, like fire first, then the tank ruptures, then massive explosion(s).”

      And: “…hydrogen sulfide is reactive with lots of chemicals, plus copper, plus rusty iron/steel. A fertilizer plant is just a specific kind of chemical plant. It may simply be the copper reactivity problem again, combined with the natural explosivity of fertilizer. Hydrogen sulfide sweeps through, hits some electrified copper, some sparking and sizzling ensues – like all the underground electrical fires and the utility poles bursting into flame in Texas – and then if you have a pile of explosive fertilizer near that sparking and sizzling then…BOOM!”

      Do you see? This isn’t an act of Satan or a terrorist attack, this is a phenomenon resulting from the deadly Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide emissions which are increasingly plaguing this planet. Of course no one really wants to look in this direction because there isn’t a heck of a lot that can be done to ameliorate the situation. The author of the JJF hypothesis goes on to say:

      “Not a ton we can do. What we SHOULD do is unite as a species and devote 100% of every hour of every person’s life and 100% of every resource to building safe habitats underground, underwater or off-planet. Not gonna be survivable on the surface, maybe not for a few million years. That’s what the underground bunkers are for – not just continuity of government, but continuity of HUMANITY ITSELF. And that’s a good idea, better than sitting around being incinerated, blown up and poisoned to death. I would like us to wake up, accept the horrifying truth head-on, and get busy doing what we can to save MORE people, by building MORE ‘Plan B’ facilities, before we’re all dead. Every day matters now.”

      The other very disturbing fact about hydrogen sulfide is that it is a neurotoxin. I can’t locate Jonny Mnemonic’s exact words on this subject, but if I recall correctly, hydrogen sulfide poisoning can result in bizarre, uninhibited, ferocious, animalistic behavior in which cannibalism and removal of clothing in particular has been documented. Sound familiar? Last spring/summer’s “zombie” attacks, beginning with Rudy Eugene near the Florida coast. No “bath salts” were found in his system. Only marijuana. He was an otherwise gentle, religious man who wouldn’t hurt a fly and marijuana had never altered his behavior in that regard. It is thought that otherwise friendly or non-aggressive animals can be affected similarly. Cases wherein family dogs and other pets suddenly become savage may well be instances of hydrogen sulfide poisoning. Insects may also be affected. Bees do sting, but unless provoked, cases of a coordinated bee attack are not as likely to occur.

      So humankind is being assaulted by methane and hydrogen sulfide on many levels. The officials in Waco really need to know about the Jumping Jack Flash hypothesis. Which sure looks to be well beyond the hypothesis stage now.

      Finally, if you scroll down on the above page, you’ll see DAILY comprehensive listings of global explosions, including vehicular and home explosions, mass animal die-offs, suspicious deaths wherein people are found charred in their cars, or “dropped dead” in low-lying and/or coastal areas, or in areas near waterways. There are a staggering number of them happening. All of us should familiarize ourselves with the JJF hypothesis and blog. Please!

        wonder what he’s selling

      • YellowRoseTx51

        You may be correct. There is Venting in the Gulf, as well.
        However, they called them “D.U.M.B.’s” for a reason. Underground is the last place you want to be.

        What is hidden from sight at the moment. is a third alternative. Believe it or not, there are some that are working on the problem.

        Humanities “Death” is a NWO myth designed as propaganda Entrainment, and to produce fear, which they feed on and manipulate. They have poisoned the Air & land, and the fractal drilling alone has created a perfect geologic bomb.

        The ride is going to get a bit scary, but in the end, the NWO loses. Mankind has said “no more” and in fact All Life is in rebellion. That collective wish is about to be honored. This is when May arrives. We will Live.

      for any body that has a working brain you can see the blast pattern. Look real good at the picture of the apartment building. The roof os blown down, some of the exposed sub floors on the second floor are bowed down, there is more debris thrown one the side towards the fertilizer plant than on the side away from it, The protected side is damage almost just like the exposed side. Now also find the areal pics at rueters that show the plant and you will see that the blast pattern is not evenly spread out as it should be since there was no large enough structure to direct the blast in one direction. THE BLAST PATTERNS ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN AN EXPLOSION and I hear no one talking about it, why?
