Almost 20,000 Indonesians flee erupting volcano

An urgently important story coming out of Indonesia tonight.. Mount Sinabung has been erupting for months.. overnight last night it shot lava into the air nine times. As a result, 19,000 have been forced to flea as the volcano shows more signs it's ready to blow..

The thing I cannot stop thinking about was how it was just nine years ago, around Christmas 2004, when Indonesia was decimated by the massive tsunami resulting from an earthquake.. and now, the same area is worrying about a volcano that is threatening so many..

19,000 flea so far.
Media reports indicate a lot more may need to leave their home..

HEATHER WADING INTO DANGER: ART BELL RESPONDS

Heather Wade announced that she was going to go to Area 51 this coming June.. People have been responding fast and furious, with some stating she is in danger of being arrested--or even killed!

Talk show legend and original MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT host Art Bell is responding in kind to people on Facebook..

What Heather is doing is a brave act. For all my life people have talked Disclosure and talked and talked. I have no illusion that she will get to any Alien anything but at least she feels the need to do something, anything to move beyond talk and raise the stakes in trying to get to the truth. If we have been visited (and I believe we have) we have a right to know. It seems to me we have a moral right to know, will it change people’s basic faith? Not any more than the Pope suddenly being quoted as saying “There is no Hell”. We have a right to know, she is right and if a act of Civil Disobedience helps I am all for it.
On acts of civil disobedience..
