How the Failure of the Oroville Dam Will Lead to UN Imposed Martial Law On American Soil

The Oroville Dam is in crisis and it ready to break..The CALEXIT movement, designed by the globalists to extricate California from the United States is dead and has been supplanted by Paul Preston’s New California 51st movement.

Had Calexit been successful, it would have collapsed the economy of the United States. The withdrawal of the agriculturally rich region of the Central Valley of California, would have produced massive food inflation and even spot famines. Thirty percent of America’s retail crosses Interstate 5 as it makes its way east from California’s ports. The elimination of this avenue of commerce would result in the destruction of the American economy. CALEXIT, run by former members of the Obama administration was designed to collapse the United States economy and produce massive food shortages. By the way, former Obama Attorney General, Eric Holder, is the spokesperson for CALEXIT. Thank goodness CALEXIT has failed. Or has it?

The Oroville Dam

As has been documented by Paul Preston and myself on multiple occasions on this website, the Oroville Dam is near collapse. If the dam collapses, the following will happen:

A 30 foot wall of water, traveling at 75 MPH will roar out of the dam and race towards Sacramento. 
A 24 foot wall of water will enter Sacramento within 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on whose figures one cites. Please note that it would take 72 hours to evacuate Sacramento. 
One million people will be in the path of the raging water with no high ground to escape to. 
Beside the death and astronomical loss of life, ensuing looting and violence would become commonplace due to the shortage of resources. This will become the biggest natural disaster of all time an the chaos that would follow would be mind-boggling. 
This "danger" to the people would allow the UN to enter the United States, in force, in order to "protect lives". 

The dam is less than 6 feet from over-topping which will cause this earthen dam to fail. The spillway has failed and the California Department of Water Resources is covering up this fact despite the fact that they are working on the dam 24/7. It is interesting to note that the nearly-bankrupt California will immediately gain $1 billion in federal disaster money. Further, the collapse of the dam will bring in the United Nations under the Kigali principles. And where the CALEXIT movement failed to destroy the United States, because of the failure of the movement, they will succeed when the Oroville Dam fails.

When the dam fails, retail traffic will not cross Interstate 5 and the entire Central Valley will not be able to produce crops. The globalists will win, California will be destroyed and the previously described issues will take place.

Implementation Will of the Kigali Principles Will Follow the Failure of the Oroville Dam

The following is from the Associated Press and was published this past July. It validates everything that I have been saying for the past 3 years. The UN is here and they are going to be used to subjugate the people of the United States.

From the AP as reported on Fox News: UNITED NATIONS (May 11, 2016)–

The United States is announcing its support for a set of principles that give a green light for U.N. peacekeeping troops and police to use force to protect civilians in armed conflicts. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power told a high-level U.N. meeting Wednesday focusing on the responsibility to protect civilians that the United States was “proud” and “humbled” to join 28 other countries that have pledged to abide by the 18 pledges. U.N. peacekeepers from these 29 countries are now required to act in cases where civilians are in danger.

"The Kigali Principles are designed to make sure that civilians are not abandoned by the international community again," she said, recalling how U.N. peacekeepers left Rwanda before the 1994 genocide and Srebrenica before the 1995 massacre. (Editor’s Note: If you impose the New World Order and the elimination of nationalism, you are threatening your fellow citizens and are ripe for UN intervention). These reports also appeared in the London Guardian, ABC, NBC and the rest of the whole cast of characters that we call the mainstream media.

CALEXIT and the UN

CALEXIT and the United Nations are linked together.

The following was Obama’s parting gift to President elect Donald Trump. From the United States Institute of Peace:

"Implementing the 'Kigali Principles' for Peacekeeping. ... While they are framed around the protection of civilians, the responsible implementation of the Principles would address much broader challenges that undermine the effectiveness of peacekeeping operations conducted in volatile situations.

December 14, 2016

This was the complete giveaway of American sovereignty by former President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry.

CALEXIT, it has always been about Calexit as the primary way to break up the United States. The Deep State cannot count on the participation of the United States military in a coup against the elected government, even if Hillary Clinton had become the Commander-In-Chief. With the candidacy of the Donald Trump picking up steam in 2016, the Deep State and the globalists forged a joint plan to takeover the United States by inciting domestic unrest and then bringing in the United Nations to take control of the country under the guise of providing humanitarian aid. This plan was the brainchild of the globalists who were afraid of losing control of the United States because of the rising tide of populism. California was chosen as ground zero to act out the new United Nations policies called the Kigali Principles. These principles were negotiated with the United Nations by Samantha Powers on behalf of Obama and the Deep State. This conspiracy consisted of the following sequential actions which were to be carried out:

Create massive domestic unrest in California stemming from CALEXIT and the absolute defiance federal authority which would cause the federal government to bring in its own peacekeeping force.
Import massive amounts of MS-13 and ISIS operatives to form a 5th column headquartered in California but the subsequent and planned unrest would reach across the nation. For example, Minnesota talk show host, Kathy Rubio stated on The Common Sense Show that MS-13 had a massive presence in the Twin Cities after receiving paramilitary training in El Salvador. When violence breaks out, it will begin in California, but the rest of the country will be consumed by violence, all of which is designed to result in a United Nations intervention.
California, by plan, would descend into absolute violence which is why the aforementioned terrorists were brought into the country in 2014 during the so-called Central American immigration invasion. I documented the increased presence and admittance of MS-13 into the US and this was made possible by a United Nations/DHS joint operation.
Let nature take its course and then bring in the United Nations to subdue America. In Part Three, I will present the complete operational plan. '

There is no doubt that some will call this crazy conspiracy nonsense. Therefore, it is necessary to bring in the undeniable documentation with regard for the United Nations to spring into action and takeover this country by using a 29 nation security force headed by the Communist Chinese.
Just How Cozy Is the Relationship Between CALEXIT and the UN?

Calexit’s plan was to originally depart from the US and then become a protectorate of the United Nations. This would grant California the ability to call for UN help. And if things go badly in California, then CALEXIT officials could call on the UN to protect it from US military forces that would be called into deal with liberal, CALEXIT politicians under the Insurrection Act of 1807.

The following photo depicts just how cozy the relationship is between CALEXIT and the United Nations.

Please note the “fine print” in the photo above. This is the banner that represented CALEXIT when they opened an embassy in Moscow. Why President Trump has not invoked the Logan Act and put these revolutionaries behind bars is a mystery.

What to Expect When the UN Shows Up In California

When the UN shows up, do you think they are going to be handing out donuts and cookies? The Kigali principles and past UN actions speak clearly to what is coming. Because the UN would be going public in the midst of an artificially created crisis, you can very well count on the following 17 principles.

1. Mass roundup of political dissidents. These will most likely be declared as terrorists and enemies of the state and will be linked to the precipitating false flag event, This will be the unfolding of Red and Blue Lists as spoken of by Steve Quayle for the last couple of decades. The NDAA will provide the pseudo legal authority to snatch key Americans out of their homes and off of the street.

2-Dusk to dawn curfews which are designed to keep the people from congregating and planning in concert to overthrow the omnipresent tyranny.

3-Rationing of essential resources (eg industrial assets) as specified in Executive Order (EO) 13603.

4-The seizing of personal assets such as food and water as specified in EO 13603.

5-Control over all food and water as specified in EO 13603.

 6-The prohibition of weapons of any kind including guns, knives or chemicals which can be turned into explosives. It will become a capital crime to possess a weapon of any type.

7-The confiscation of property, homes and businesses as provided for in FM 39.4 and EO 13603.

8-Arrests without due process (NDAA).

 9-Massive “papers please” checkpoints with intrusive searches. 

0-Forced relocation of suspected American dissidents as specified by the Civilian Inmate Labor Program and the Civilian Conscription Program, under the Secretary of Labor, in EO 13603. This will mark the introduction of slave labor in American in which the conscripts are called (unpaid) consultants. 

11-Forced conscription into various labor camps and even into the military (EO 13603). Also medical martial law policies could be invoked in the advent of the introduction of a pathogen

12-Outlawing of free speech. Social media censorship and the implementation of the Chinese “social credit system” are evidence of this already ongoing plot. 

13-The installation of massive surveillance programs and the establishment of snitch programs which would mark the rebirth of former Secretary of DHS, Janet Napolitano, in which neighbors are encouraged to “say something, if these see something”. The NSA police state surveillance programs speak for themselves. It is highly recommended that every American see the Oliver Stone movie, Snowden. 

14-The total control or elimination of religion. The Bible is already being characterized as hate speech. Today, one who is Christian is cast as anti-gay/transgender, anti-government, etc.

15-Control of the media. Except for the total eradication of the alternative media, this has already happened. ICANN will finish the job.

16-Executions without due process of law (NDAA). 17-Total suspension of the Constitution as this is essentially complete in light of actions such as EO 13603 and the NDAA.

I did not even mention the multiple of sexual assault allegation made against UN troops in other venues.

Can there be any question about why the Oroville Dam is destined to fail?

Video Alert: Oroville Dam Failure Is Imminent! Water Inflow Is Now Triple the Outflow Rate-Six Feet From Failure!

The California Department of Water Resources is maintaining that the Oroville Dam spillway is fine. This is a lie! They are working 24/7 on the dam. Hundreds are witnessing the deception. The Prado Dam, also in crisis is being managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. Why is the Oroville Dam under the control of the Federal government? Is Oroville SUPPOSED to fail and it is easier to pull of the deception if the very corrupt California state government remains in charge?

Paul Preston has previously related to me that the California State Government has a financial motivation to see the dam fail based on the following:

The State of California is broke and the state is quickly reaching a state of insolvency.
If the Oroville Dam fails, the state will instantly quality for over a billion dollars in federal disaster aid.
The state has motive to see the dam fail.

There are are a number of scenarios with regard to inundation when the dam fails. Use your search engine to locate.The devastation is massive. I will be focusing on this variable in the next installment of this analysis.

The following video describes how the surrounding lakes are filled to capacity and the excess water has nowhere to do. This analysis is followed by the latest data which clearly shows the inflow rate is triple that of the outflow rate of water. The dam is six feet of water away from overtopping and collapsing. These numbers are worsening exponentially. Only 24 hours earlier, the rate of inflow vs outflow showed a 40% differential. This morning, less that two hours ago, the differential is now increased to a factor of three. Crisis is at hand.

The Data Does Not Lie

Below is the latest data as released by the California Department of Water Resources. Please note that as of 7AM Pacific, this morning (5/28), the inflow of water into the dam has tripled outflow. I am receiving information that the previously reported opening of the gates is not working as well as it did. Remember, I stated that this was a temporary, stop-gap measure that has run its course. Inflow is triple the rate of outflow. Also, please note that the dam is 900 feet and the present height of the water in the dam is 894. Last week, the dam was 12 feet from overtopping. And when this earthen dam overtops, it will break.

Open the Video

Please note the rate of inflow vs outflow is greatly increasing with regard to the same time only 24 hours earlier. This is because the mitigation strategy of using opening the gates is no longer effective. In addition, there is rain forecast and the peak of the snow run-off has not been reached.

In a future article, I will discuss, in detail, a likely scenario, that will follow the breaking of the dam that will involve the military, first responders and the United Nations. This is a frightening scenario. One brief look ahead, would indicate that Federal personnel stationed on the border will be moved to assist with the crisis management in the Central Valley of California following the catastrophic failure of the dam. This will increase the dangers resulting from the further breakdown of the border and the increased likelihood of a Red Dawn military action on our Southern border. Also, I would say at this point, get use to seeing blue helmets all across the Southwest.

Please show this data to a skeptic who lives in the Central Valley region of California. Many are voluntarily evacuating. All people in the path of the flood need to immediately evacuate

Video: The Oroville Dam: What a Difference a Month of Snow and Rain Makes

Over two years after repairs to the main spillway of the Oroville Dam after a near catastrophic failure of the dams emergency runoff chutes the dam was put to the test for media and the world to see. They barely ran the spillway at full operation (understandable), but then they stopped using it and have started working on the inside of what appears to be a – still leaky – spillway.

In this video I use the reporting (fair use) of KPIX CBS Bay Area on the April 2nd re-opening of the dam and then I use the same news cast reporting of ‘rumors’ that the dam is not up to standards to hold massive water runoff if needed. In this video I report and reply to Viewers Comments on both news stories and find out that REAL people are REALLY concerned about the health and well being of the Oroville Dam. No fearporn here Juan. Just real reporting with real public concerns. Open the Video

Oroville Dam Crisis Worsens-Last Ditch Effort to Save the Dam Is Underway

California faces a triple whammy in which millions of California residents are at risk for three major dam failures. Most readers are aware that the Oroville Dam is in crisis. The latter part of this report will provide a very grim update of the condition of the Oroville and the desperate measures being employed to delay the catastrophic failure of the dam. However, a second dam, the Prado Dam, which now threatens over one million resident of Orange County is in crisis.

CSS colleague, Alexandra Daley, sent a summation of a newspaper account, written by Ashley Ludwig, Patch Staff which was written on May 17, 2019 at 1PM Pacific time.

The Prado Dam is now at a high urgency risk characterization, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Federal engineers are stating that there is a good chance for a “significant flood event. and they upgraded the dam’s risk category from moderate to high urgency.”

According to Federal officials, strong Pacific storms, could produce conditions that could breach the spillway of the Orange County dam. A catastrophic failure has the potential to “drown out dozens of downstream communities, from Anaheim’s Disneyland to Newport Beach” according to the Army Corps of Engineers from the Los Angeles District.

Over 1.4 million people live and work below Prado Dam, with property valued at over $61 billion, including Disneyland and many high-end resorts and properties in Newport Beach.

The Dam has been near failure in the past. In 2005, a leak in the dam led to the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people in Corona.

Army Corps of Engineer spokesperson, Lillian Doherty told the LA Times that the spillway was a concern, but that repairs on the spillway won’t begin for at least two years. The obvious question jumps off the page: What if a hundred year storm should strike the area before repairs are completed? This damaged spillway is a clear and present danger to 1.4 million residents. However, farther north, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) won’t even admit the Oroville Dam spillway cannot be used
Ominous Update On the Oroville Dam

Spillway? Did someone say spillway? At least in Orange County, the federal government has a presence. The people of Orange County should feel good about this. For months, Paul Preston and myself have saying the spillway is damaged and cannot be used to handle the spring run-offs and heavy rains. The people that have mocked our warnings owe us both an apology. In a last ditch effort to save the dam, the DWR is attempting to divert water through the power plant by utilizing something called penstocks. This will allow the Oroville Dam to generate 13,000 cubic feet per second of water with regard to the outflow of water expelled by the dam. Presently the dam cannot generate more than 10,000 cubic feet per second. This process is now needed because the spillway is damaged beyond repair. This is what Paul Preston and myself have been saying, and showing with photos published on our respective websites, and we are now seeing the proof which is employing this desperate and last ditch attempt to delay the inevitable. From the inflow/outflow numbers at the dam, we figure they have an additional three days. The day of reckoning for Oroville Dam is almost here .

The Oroville Dam is less than 10 feet from overtopping. What happens when an earthen dam like the Prado or Oroville Dam has its water overtop the dam? Here is what Army Corps of Engineers Division Chief, Lillian Doherty says about this issue.

"Our concern right now is about the concrete slab of the spillway and how well it will perform if water were to spill over the top of the dam, We will determine whether or not it is as reliable as it should be."

At least the residents near the Prado Dam are being considered. Doherty stated that they are working to develop outreach strategies to alert the estimated 1.4 million people who could be impacted. The people, downstream from the Oroville Dam are being lied to by the DWS. They are being told there is no danger despite the fact that it is obvious for any to see that has eyes to see.

Doherty said her agency is working with a national team of experts to develop interim and permanent risk-reduction measures at the Prado Dam, as well as public outreach strategies to alert the estimated 1.4 million people who live and work in 29 communities downstream.

One may remember that in February 2017, Butte County officials evacuated 180,000 people from the Oroville Dam area because a concrete spillway was deemed to be ineffective. As the situation at the Oroville Dam disintegrated during heavy rains, an evacuation of more than 180,000 people commenced. Had the dam collapsed, all would have been caught in the resulting flood waters and would have all perished in their cars.

The head of the California Water Resources Department was removed after an independent probe found the failure was the result of a lax safety culture. Nothing has changed.

That same year, the Corps of Engineers discovered that the 60-year-old Whittier Narrows Dam, about 40 miles to the west of Prado Dam, was structurally unsafe and posed a potentially catastrophic risk to more than 1 million people in working-class communities along the San Gabriel River floodplain.

Engineers also found that the earthen structure could fail if water were to flow over its crest.

With less than 10 feet from overtopping, why isn’t the Oroville Dam attracting the attention of the Army Corps of Engineers? Why is the inept DWR still in charge? The Whittier Narrows is of concern because the Army Corps of Engineers used the phrase “catastrophic risk to more than 1 million people..”. This is exactly what we are looking at with regard to the Oroville Dam and nobody is saying anything. If the Oroville Dam suffers a catastrophic failure the following will happen with regard to the impact on human survival:

A 30 foot wall of water will escape the failed Oroville Dam
The water will be traveling at 75 mph
It would take a minimum of 72 hours to evacuate Sacramento and Stockton
A 20 foot wall of water would reach Sacramento within 45 minutes
Over 1 million people lie in the path of the water 
As with all these soon-to-be-failed dams, the spillways constitute the major reason for potential failure and we are not clearly seeing this condition at the Oroville Dam

From Agenda 21 Radio

Please note the enormous craines. This photo was taken on May 16, 2019. They are not holding back the water, they are checking for catastrophic failure potential. Not a word to the public, but the DWR is very worried!

The Latest Outflow and Inflow Reports From the Oroville Dam

Earlier in this publication I alluded to a new mitigation strategy being employed by the DWR as they are rerouting some of the water through the power plant. They are using the penstocks to accomplish this goal. The penstocks can mitigate flood waters to a certain degree and for only a certain time. The use of the penstocks stresses the dam in other areas and is only meant to mitigate a severe crisis. By using the penstocks, the DWR is admitting that the spillway is not usable. Again, the outflow that can be generated is about 13,000 cubic feet per second. The water approaching the dam over the next several days is peaking at 17,500 inflow. Eventually the dam is going to overtop and the dam will likely fail.

Below is a chart which shows the use of the penstocks is barely meeting the need. However, as it continues to rain and the snow begins to melt, catastrophe is likely.

According to Paul Preston, some people are evacuating. However, many more are unaware of the danger. Both the federal and state governments are acting irresponsibly. Given how quickly the Oroville dam could unravel, evacuations should have already been underway.

"A troubling theme is emerging as the Corps reviews its portfolio of large flood control systems that were built a long time ago and are now showing signs of severe stress," said Daniel Swain, a UCLA climate scientist told the LA Times. "Federal engineers are finding that these systems are not as resilient as they thought they were and that the frequency of what were regarded as once-in-a-lifetime storms is increasing significantly."

Oroville Dam in Big Trouble Again!

The new spillway is failing at exactly the same location as the old one did! The story and photos that follow the video are from Paul Preston at


Paul Preston article begins……

An engineer with 20-plus years experience working on dams fears the Oroville dam could be in trouble again. He says the same problem which led to the failure of the main spillway in 2017 is still happening. Open the Video

The state has spent more than a billion dollars rebuilding the main and emergency spillways at Oroville dam. Now, expert Scott Cahill told News Radio KFBK, water can be seen seeping from the foot of the dam and dozens of points along the new spillway.

An hour later from the above picture taken on March 15, 2019 a second picture of the Oroville Dam spillway shows workers about to repair the water seeping from the same area where the original spillway broke apart on February 7, 2017. The workers are about to engage in what noted dam expert Dr. Robert Bea calls “patch and pray”. meaning “Patch” the leaking seams that are venting water under high pressure from behind the spillway roller compacted concrete and 2 1/2 foot thick steel reinforced structural concrete slab then “Pray”. Next to the seated worker is a “leaf blower” that is about to be used to blow water from a leaking seam so the workers can “Patch” the leak.. These high pressure water leaks are in the exact same spot as the original leak that caused the rupture of the main spillway on February 7, 2017. Photo: Robert Armstrong AENN Copyright 2019

“That concrete spillway slab is now moving water, which is evolving up through the slab today,” Cahill told News Radio KFBK. “Very similar to what it did before the failure (in 2017).”

Cahill has seen this with his own eyes. He’s even more concerned with cracks in the gates along the crest of the dam, something he says is already in what he calls failure mode.

“The possibility exists that a cutback will occur there that will allow the pool to release,” Cahill insisted. “At that point we’ll no longer have control over the velocity or the amount of water that’s moved downstream.”

Cahill said he has sent his concerns to the California Department of Water Resources, but he claims those officials have not replied.

Paul Preston interviewing dam expert Scott Cahill April 23, 2917 at the Oroville dam. Note the credentials displayed by Paul Preston and the yellow vests and helmets worn by Preston and Cahill. Per Department of Water Resources policies at the time members of press and researchers were required to sign in and register at the DWR headquarters on Glenn St. near the dam on February 12, 2017. The Oro Dam location where the above picture was taken was a restricted area by the DWR and could only have been accessed with the approval of the DWR and anyone in this area were required to wear a helmet and yellow vest. These rules were strictly enforced by the DWR. Preston and Cahill both registered, wore the appropriate safety equipment and were given access to areas of the dam not afforded to to the general public. In comments to KFBK DWR spokesmember Erin Mellon “suggested Cahill may have never set foot the dam”. Overwhelming evidence suggests Mellon to be wrong.

The DWR issued a statement to a KFBK request for comment on Cahill’s claims.

“DWR is confident in how we have repaired and reconstructed the main and emergency spillways, using the best engineering practices available and with constant oversight by state and federal regulators to ensure the safety of the downstream communities the facility protects. DWR and its construction contractor Kiewit worked on the design and construction of both the main emergency spillways under the oversight and with the approval of an independent Board of Consultants and state and federal regulators,” said spokeswoman Erin Mellon. “DWR is aware and anticipated some water to seep through the main spillway gates this winter. As the reservoir surpasses elevation 813 feet (the elevation of the spillway gates), some water does seep through the gates onto the spillway as the gates are not designed to be water tight. We issued a press release anticipating this on March 5. It has also been reported on in previous years.

Mellon also suggested Cahill may have never set foot the dam.

A panoramic aerial view of the Oroville Dam main spillway taken Sept. 29, 2017 shows the gap in the middle where roller-compacted concrete was used, and work above and below it where steel reinforced structural concrete was placed. The entire center section was resurfaced with structural concrete. The center section shown above is where the roller compacted concrete was used and was the area of the original leakage that led to the rupture of February 7, 2017 This is now the same area where the leakage has reappeared in March 2019. (Kelly M. Grow — Department of Water Resources)

“DWR and Kiewit maintain records of visits to the dam and spillways and have no record of Mr. Cahill visiting the facility. As you know, the dam and spillway have been inaccessible to the public during reconstruction. I do have an email from a member of the public saying he visited the Oroville area at the end of April 2017 but as you know, that was well before reconstruction began.”

Erin Mellon Should Not Be Critical of Scott Cahill

Reconstruction was already underway when Cahill visited the dam in mid April 2017 and had already spent several days either at the dam or in interviews with DWR/dam personnel, federal, state, county and city officials.

Prior to his visits to Oroville Dam Cahill was actively engaged in the investigation as to the reasons for the failure of the dam system with federal officials and was making attempts to reach our and work with California state officials in the legislature, DWR and various local officials. Federal officials and several state legislators and local officials were more than happy work with Cahill. Not surprising the California state Department of Water Resources refused to entertain any relationship with Cahill.

The contractor Kiewitt was given $275 million contract to repair Oroville Dam Spillway in early April of 2017 and had been meeting with DWR officials to make the necessary repairs before the signing of the contract.

“Per the agreement, Kiewit is to begin reconstruction on Oroville’s failed spillways immediately, with the goal for the system to be operational before the region’s wet winter season that traditionally begins in November”.

Kiewitt did in fact make an immediate transition into working on the dam as early as April 12, 2017.

Cahill in early April before the Kiewitt contract was let made arrangements to fly from Virginia to California witness for himself the disaster first hand. Cahill through his own investigations and interviews knew all the intimate details of what needed to be done but also knew of the serious flaws in the DWR’s planning and execution of the necessary repairs needed to make Oroville dam safe.

Cahill has long been a critic and a pain in the side of the California Department of Water Resource’s handling of the Oroville dam disaster. In an August 2017 interview on the Chris Martenson’s Peak Prosperity podcast Cahill gave several warnings about what he saw at the dam were major issues and the subsequent irresponsible handling of the crisis by the DWR which have not either been addressed or mitigated still to this day.

“They’ve begun the repairs on the bottom half of the spillway, but the tragedy and loss from the bottom half of the spillway failing has already been realized. No one is worried about the bottom half of the spillway. On the other hand, they’ve done nothing yet with the upper half of the spillway — which is what would cause a catastrophic failure of the dam. It’s amazing how much money they’ve already spent, and yet their priorities are such that they haven’t abated the liability at all.

So yes, we’ve made the bottom of the principal spillway, the concrete slues, more sound. But it’s not the bottom of the dam that will fail, of course, it’s the crest — the top of it — where the gates are. That’s still highly suspect.

There are additional issues involving the unwanted moving of water through the dam — the so-called “green spots”. These are areas where water is migrating through the dam, probably through the indigenous soils adjacent to it. I’ve walked on these [at Oroville] and you can stick your foot down, and like your backyard after a torrential rain, water actually comes up into the footprint after you remove your foot. This is not a good situation. I believe there is a lot of movement of water through that dam, including at the structure itself that houses the gates that control the flow down the principal spillway.

There’s nothing wrong with embankment dams in general, they’re wonderful dams. But they rely on the mass of the earthen embankment itself to offset the forces that try to slide or rotate it into failure. When we see water migrating through a dam, it can potentially cause failure of the dam because it offsets the mass all that earth. Plus, there’s a lot of river rock and sand in this embankment. River rock, as we all know, is round. Anyone can understand how a pile of round rocks, if the fines have been washed out from between them by water and the rocks then vibrated, for instance, by seismic activity, weakens the system. These concerns are very, very serious. I believe that this situation is occurring in multiple places across the Oroville dam — and yet this is simply not being discussed”.

Why should Erin Mellon not be critical of Scott Cahill? Simple Erin Mellon has no credibility when it come to issues of dam safety or even dams in general. Mellon who inferred that Cahill had not been to the dam in her interview with KFBK falsely did so because she did not know the facts.

Mellon whose official title is Assistant Director of Public Affairs, California Department of Water Resources was not even employed by the DWR until August 2017 three full months after construction of the spillway was underway by Kiewitt.

Mellon had zero experience working on issues of dams when she was hired in August of 2017. Today following numerous town halls in the affected area of the dam and the inundation zone Mellon has shown herself to be a major liability. Trumpeting the false narrative associated with the safety of Oroville dam being pushed by the Department of Water Resources Mellon has become a good fit. Following a town hall in Yuba City, CA one walnut farmer stated: “She’s (Mellon) is a bald faced liar”. Unfortunately for Mellon the walnut farmer’s comment is what the public generally says about her and by extension the DWR.

The world of dam safety has the highest regard for Scott Cahill and others who have been critical of the DWR including Dr. Robert Bea from the University of California, Berkley. Dr. Bea, a co-author of a report warning of a green spot near the Oroville Dam in July 2017 is a professor emeritus of engineering at Berkeley called the complete repair of the Oroville dam spillway is nothing more than “Patch and pray operation”.

Its obvious we all need prayer as the “patches” are not holding.

Deja Vu: Is the Oroville Spillway About to Fail Just Two Years After Near-Disastrous Evacuation?

It may be hard to believe but only two years after a near-disastrous last-minute evacuation, the Oroville Spillway could be on the verge of failure again. A major piece of infrastructure in Northern California, the spillway has not been well-maintained despite continuously increasing taxes for that purpose.

And despite a very near miss two years ago, it looks like we’re seeing a replay of those same events.

According to a report on The Common Sense Show with Dave Hodges, some folks downhill from the dam have already evacuated due to the strong possibility of imminent failure. Hodges is issuing a warning to people in the path of the looming disaster. He wrote:

I asked Paul Preston, “How close is the dam to failing?” Preston replied “It could go by this weekend”.. His comments, in part, are based upon the dire weather forecast in which intense rainfall is forecasted between Wednesday May 15 and Sunday, May 19th. This is significant because this could greatly add to the inflow and the outflow data which shows an extreme imbalance. And when we consider that the dam is 12 feet from overtopping, the danger multiplies exponentially. When any structure takes on more water, whether it be a ship or a dam, it is going to fail/sink…

…This article is a progress report. However, it is also a warning to the residents in the Central Valley which lie below the Oroville Dam and are in the direct path of the torrent of water that will be released when the dam fails. Some are leaving and some more will undoubtedly leave before it is too late. However, we many unsuspecting potential victims that are oblivious to the present set of conditions. This article is aimed at getting the present state of the Dam in front of as many people in the Central Valley as possible. (source)

It’s like deja vu.
Is this warning only an “internet rumor?”

At the same time, local officials are assuring people that there is no danger. The Butte County Sheriff released the following statement on Twitter.

The Department of Water Resources released a statement explaining why the spillway is not a concern.

DWR is monitoring weather forecasts into the Feather River basin this week, and the impact incoming storms will have on melting snowpack. Forecasts and weather can change rapidly, and DWR will notify the public and media if the main spillway needs to be used to manage reservoir levels. Currently the reservoir is at an elevation of 889 feet and outflows to the Feather River are 9,500 cubic feet per second. DWR is targeting high lake levels through spring and summer in accordance with normal state and federal regulations, which is good news for local recreation and for statewide water supply. (source)

But not so fast – let’s revisit the Department of Water Resources actions the last time the dam was near failure.

The Oroville Spillway almost failed in 2017

Back in 2017, the people of Oroville were in a very similar situation. Nearly 200,000 residents were evacuated due to fears that the main spillway is pending imminent collapse. The emergency spillway isn’t some high tech engineer’s creation – it is just a cleared hill which showed massive erosion when they tested it with a small amount of water.

When drought-stricken California got the equivalent of five years’ worth of rain all at once, crews were left to work frantically around the clock to fix the spillway.

But the mismanagement of funds or the last-minute slipshod repair wasn’t even the worst of the matter. Not by a long shot.
The local government gave only a ONE HOUR warning to local residents.

Of course, the lack of maintenance and mishandled tax dollars are unforgivable, but the lack of warning was even worse.

…the real lesson here isn’t the faulty infrastructure or the mismanagement of funds.

It is the deception of the public and the way that officials will go to great lengths to cover their butts – even if that means giving a warning to the public that could be too late. This isn’t the first time that the government has completely failed in an emergency response to an imminent disaster, and it won’t be the last.

Officials waited until they believed that the disaster was only 60 minutes away to evacuate nearly 200,000 people. (source)

For more than a week, residents expressed their concerns but were basically patted on the head and told not to worry. (Go here for a timeline of the Department of Water Resources’ complete denial of a problem last time around.) Meanwhile, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife evacuated almost all salmon from the Feather River Fish Hatchery but the humans were repeatedly told there was no threat whatsoever.

Until five hours after the announcement of the successful evacuation of the fish.

EMERGENCY EVACUATION ORDER ISSUED: Officials are anticipating a failure of the Auxiliary Spillway at Oroville Dam within the next 60 minutes. (source)

Residents were warned as they were leaving:

Unprecedented flooding could occur in Oroville, Palermo, Gridley, Thermalito, South Oroville, Oroville Dam, Oroville East and Wyandotte.

“With Lake Oroville filled to the brim, such a collapse could have caused a “30-foot wall of water coming out of the lake,” Cal-Fire incident commander Kevin Lawson said at a Sunday night press conference.” (source)

One estimate suggested that the initial flash flood could reach up to 100 feet in depth, wiping out everything in its path.

People were stuck in long lines at gas stations and then stuck in traffic for hours – up to nine hours to be specific. Imagine if the Spillway had failed while hundreds of thousands of people were stuck in their cars. Imagine the level of death and devastation there would have been.

And all of it would have been due to the fact that someone was covering up careless management.
And here they are again, two years later, facing the same potential disaster.

If you live in an area that would be affected if the Spillway fails, I strongly urge you to evacuate if you can at all before Mother Nature dumps several more inches of rain this weekend. It might be a nice time to go visit family members outside the potential emergency zone. Evacuate keeping in mind that you might never be able to come to your home again. (Get evacuation checklists and whole home inventory checklists in this PDF book.)

Go now so that you aren’t stuck in traffic when disaster strikes. And if you can’t go now because of work or school commitments, at least ensure that your fuel tank is topped up at all times and that you are packed and ready to roll the second an evacuation order is given.

I would not wait for the official evacuation order.

Because if their past performance is anything to go by, it’s pretty clear that you won’t be able to trust local officials to warn you in time.

Video: Collapse of Oroville Dam Has Become a Distinct Possibility

The Oroville Dam is in crisis. In the past several weeks, I have spoken to Paul Preston multiple times about the continuing crisis. This morning, April 18, 2019, Preston is in court attempting to file an injunction against the Department of Water Resources.of California. Consequently, Preston is not able to speak with me on this topic. However, I do have access to other sources and I have obtained direct evidence which strongly indicates that the Oroville Dam is in imminent danger. Here is what we know as the early morning hours on April 18, 2019.
Within the Past Six Days the Dam Has Begun Periodic Over-topping

The Oroville Dam is the biggest earthen dam in the United States, standing at a height of 901 feet. The dam is experiencing threats to its existence from a number of sources. Here was a recent story which indicated that over-topping was a looming threat. This alone, could collapse the dam.

From Agenda 21 Radio:

NewCali News

Many New Californians in the Butte, Sutter and Yuba counties have expressed great concern over what they have been seeing error codes from the Oroville dam data exchange center’s hourly charts from the Department of Water Resources.  The error codes (N) started showing  up on the charts April 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm PST. when the last reported elevation of the water in the reservoir was at 860.83 feet.  By 4:00 pm PST the elevation was reported at 533.22 a drop of 327 feet in the water level.  Noted alongside the measurement is letter (N) which indicates there is an error in the reporting.

Of big concern for people was after 44 hours without a proper reading from the Oroville Dam what was the real level of the reservoir since the last reading that was produced without an error code (N) was Friday April 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm PST that report showed an elv. at 860.83 ft

As of Sunday at 12:00 pm pst 44 hours after the error code showed there was only minimal data that could be used such as the inches per hour which was not reliable but the Inflows were 19,559 vs Out flows of 8,002 at 12:00 pm PST April 14, 2019 with the main spillway is NOT in use.

“We don’t know the levels.  What are the exact numbers?” stated one Butte County resident.

The dam max reservoir is 899.9. Over topping starts at 901 many people were thinking there was an over topping threat as they saw on February 11, 2017.  The February 11, 2017 incident was the led to the February 12 dam failure that forced the Sheriff to call for an emergency evacuation of 190,000 people from the inundation zone.

From Bad to Worse

Noted dam expert, Scott Cahill’s material on the Oroville Dam’s condition was forwarded to me. Here is what I have at this point in time..

On the right side of the spillway the plates are leaking.  There should be NO water leaking from the seams.

The leaks are obvious in all IMG pictures. Spillway is suppose to be smooth.  Evidence in all IMG pictures. Notable plate buckling in IMG 8027b, IMG 8026B, IMG 8025b and IMG 8034  From Dam specialist Scott Cahill Watershed Services. I am being sent these photos later today. I am not sure about the delay in doing so and they will be published  as soon as they are received. I suspect that the early is due to the fact that that photos are going to be used in court this morning in order to gain an injunctions against the Department of Water Resources who are using dynamite in the vicinity of the dam in order clear debris. The fear among local experts is that the dynamite could trigger a catastrophic collapse of the dam. This constitutes the main legal argument against DWS in court as per the filed documents. 

Eyewitnesses have told me that the spillway is collapsing. There is buckling in the middle of the dam. It is estimated that if the top of the dam fails, the dam will lose about 30-40% of its height. This would lead to massive over-topping of the 600 feet that would be left and eventually it is expected that the dam would collapse. 

ADDENDUM TO THE ARTICLE 9AM Pacific April 18, 2019

These pictures originated with Scott Cahill. These photos show clear cracks and damage to the spillway, mentioned earlier in the article. Once can see the bulges forming as well. This dam is a critical state.

What Happens If the Dam Collapses?

The experts I speak with tell me, that in the event of a dam collapse, the water will come rushing out at 75 MPH. The water will be 30 feet high. Sacramento would be under water in less than hour. DWS says it would take two hours for the water to reach Sacramento. The point is largely irrelevant. The city could not be successfully evacuated within two hours. Almost two million lives are at risk.

If the dam collapses, the CALEXIT people will realize their goal of eliminating California’s contribution to the nation’s agricultural and world’s supply of food. The affected Central Valley is one of the top suppliers of fruits, nuts and vegetables in the world. Spot famines would result. Further 30% of America’s retail crosses Interstate 15 and that would be stopped immediately and this at a time when the retail collapse of America is already underway with the closing of 6,000 stores in the first quarter of 2019. This event could collapse our economy. And I want to stress that is a preliminary report. I have prepared a summary report below in the following. I will be publishing photos as they arrive and are converted in a publishable format. Open the Video

A “perfect storm” of events is now building toward a cascading collapse of mammoth U.S. dams that will displace millions and destroy entire towns

Dams do their job every day with little fanfare, but when one breaks, the results can be devastating. Imagine entire towns being completely washed away and millions of people losing everything they own and being displaced. It sounds like something out of a big-budget Hollywood doomsday film, but for the millions of people who live near dams, the danger is all too real.

In fact, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has forecast that two thirds of the 48 contiguous states will be facing a heightened flood risk until May. They predict that there could be “unprecedented” levels of flooding throughout the nation that will put 200 million people in danger.

Some of the areas identified as being at the greatest risk include communities near the Mississippi River, where rain and snow levels have been as much as 200 percent above normal, along with the Great Lakes, the Ohio river basin, and the Tennessee river basin.

NOAA National Water Center Director Ed Clark commented: “The extensive flooding we’ve seen in the past two weeks will continue through May and become more dire and may be exacerbated in the coming weeks as the water flows downstream.”

A combination of rapid snow melt and heavy rainfall inundating the Midwest and plains is fueling the floods, with torrents of rainfall failing to penetrate frozen ground, forcing water to swell rivers and break their banks. As the spring rains continue and snow melts, the flood threat will only be exacerbated.

Flooding has already caused almost $1.5 billion worth of damage in Nebraska, leaving four people dead and one missing. It has damaged hundreds of Midwestern homes so far, and is also being blamed for a handful of deaths in Nebraska and Idaho. Flooding has caused trains to be stopped in Missouri, preventing people and goods from reaching their destinations, and it’s also affecting agriculture significantly, threatening grain stockpiles and killing livestock as tens of thousands of acres get absolutely inundated.

Coastal areas are also being hit by flooding, with NOAA predicting that both the east and west coasts of the nation will experience a greater chance than normal of spring flooding due to high tides.
Nation’s dams not ready to handle all this flooding

Unfortunately, many of America’s dams just aren’t up to the task of handling epic rainfall. Look at what happened with the Oroville Dam in California, which nearly blew out after damage from record-setting rains, threatening to propel a 30-foot wall of water toward Sacramento and everything in its path. The state ultimately had to evacuate 188,000 people in three counties.

Meanwhile, the Fort Peck Dam in Montana is also causing concerns as the upcoming snow melt is coinciding with the Yellowstone Caldera’s seismic activity.

In their Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, the American Society of Civil Engineers said that 15,500 American dams have high-hazard potential, which means that if they fail, it could lead to a catastrophic loss of life. A further 11,882 dams have a “significant hazard potential,” which means a failure might not necessarily cause massive deaths but could cause significant financial losses.

It’s pretty scary to think of how easily a dam can break and how quickly that could wreak massive amounts of havoc and destruction. And what happens when this kind of flooding hits a nuclear reactor? Aging infrastructure and unprecedented rain mean we could be hit by a disaster of epic proportions.

Extreme Danger From Within and From Without

America is facing unprecedented dangers from within and without. Our dangers are both foreign and domestic. This article will highly only one of each to illustrate the devastating challenges that America faces.

The Oroville Dam Is Once Again Nearing Collapse

In 2017, the Oroville Dam was near a complete collapse and over a million persons would have been risk. Further, the agricultural risk Central Valley of California would have been destroyed and this would have led to extreme food shortages in the United States and would have led to spot famines in other parts of the world.

From American Thinker:

Over $1.1 billion spent to repair Oroville Dam and now it appears that the repairs were in vain. Once again, and as I have reported before, the Oroville Dame is once again failing and in danger of collapse as water is seeping through the newly rebuilt spillway which now all but promises to bring new mass evacuations.

According to national dam expert Scott Cahill of Watershed Services of Ohio, Oroville Dam is on the same failure track as in 2017, with visible water seepage trickling from the foot of the dam and dozens of points along the dam’s principal spillway.  Cahill warns that warming temperatures magnified by precipitation is a growing threat to the dam.

American Thinker reported on March 1 that the Sierra snow pack was at a record 113 inches, but another 44 inches fell in the next 10 days.  With temperatures spiking this week to 75 degrees in the valleys and 41 degrees in the high mountains, dam inflows are running twice the outflows, and the water levels rose from 800 to 839 feet.

In conversations I have had with Paul Preston, it is clear that the dam is in very big trouble and our dire warning of two years ago are once again, in order.

In the opening I detailed the consequences of the dam collapsing. This event would accomplish what CALEXIT tried to accomplish which is the neutralization of California as an asset for United States.

A Dam break of this magnitude could very well collapse the American economy when combined with the long-term effects of Midwest flooding.
The Russians Are At Our Backdoor

It is clear that Putin has judged America to be a nation that supports globalism. He apparently has abandoned the idea of combing forces with America in order to attack the New World Order controlled bankers and their main supporting nations. Putin obviously believes that the “swamp” is too deep in order for Trump to turn America around.

I recently received an email detailing Russian training going in the Sierra Madre.


Normally I don’t do this. I have a family member that’s prominent in military intelligence I won’t give you the branch for obvious reasons. This is not Q stuff that’s disinfo. However he told my immediate family that a deal was brokered with Mexico to bring Russian troops for military drills and staging in Northern Mexico. You don’t have to believe me and I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t I have nothing to hide or lose by telling you this but look for reports of something of that nature in the months to come. Whether the media covers it or not is a different story. Anyway take care Dave I’m sure you understand the implications of what that will cause if that’s what happens. I assume the Russians have finally had it with our form of foreign policy. Also there’s info that a N-warhead was smuggled across during the last migrant caravan. I can’t confirm that maybe you have the resources too. This border wall isn’t about immigration its about war. 

I have been able to confirm all of the claims made in the email above except for the claim that terrorists smuggle a nuclear weapon across the border.

Russians are in the state of Sinoloa and training with the Chinese (confirmed by ARSOF officer)
I previously reported on the changing condition of the border wall. It has changed in design from preventing migrants from entering the country, to one of repelling a light infantry invasion. This information came to me from a trusted DHS source.


This article has only covered two challenges facing this country. You must feel the sense of urgency and spread. People have a right to know so the can better prepare. How are your preparations? Do you have an adequate supply of guns, gold, ammo, medicine, tools and allies?
