An All News Pipeline reader contacted us yesterday about a mysterious explosion at a power plant in Escanaba, Michigan that has left much of the area still in the dark. Our reader was concerned that a coverup was ongoing as the US govt has taken a strange interest in the city near the Canadian border recently, a city where the biggest employers are the hospital and the ore mining industry. The explosion was accompanied by a light that one reader said "shot straight down from the heavens." While the local media attempted to explain away the light as an oncoming train, most readers weren't buying it.
Back on August 22nd, 2013, All News Pipeline friend Bobby Powell from The Truth Is Viral made a post to Facebook in which he warned that Russian troops were in Alpena, Michigan. He told us: "I know for a fact that Russian Spetsnaz troops are right here in Alpena, 'training' at the Alpena Combat Readiness Center...I know they were Spetsnaz for a couple of different reasons, the first clue being their bearing. When I was in the Marine Corps we trained specifically to fight these scumbags and were taught quite a bit about them..."
Alpena, Michigan is another Canadian border city, a short 4-hour drive and merely 240 miles away from Escanaba where this mysterious power plant explosion, also seen in the additional pictures and videos below, happened.
This is the original news report from SPRINGFIELD, Effingham County in Georgia, next to the entrance of I-95 to Florida.
Effingham deputies call feds after arresting Russians with shovel, wire cutters outside Georgia Power plant
by Evgeniy Luzhetskiy
SPRINGFIELD — Effingham County sheriff deputies have reported the early Sunday morning arrest of three men to the federal Joint Terrorism Task Force.
The men, two from Russia and one from Kazakhstan, were found near Georgia Power’s Plant McIntosh on Old Augusta Road about 1 a.m. Sunday after a ranger with the Department of Natural Resources reported a suspicious vehicle, Effingham County sheriff’s spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.
Deputies reported the men, who were inside a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, had a machete, shovel, wire cutters and ski masks. One man also had black silk stockings in his front left pocket.
Arrested were Evgeniy Luzhetskiy, of Kazakhastan Nail Idiatullin and Rustem Ibragimov of Russia. All three reported they lived in Charleston, S.C., deputies reported.
The men were all charged with possession of tools during the commission of a crime.
The three were released after being interviewed by task force members, Ehsanipoor said.
"They did all have visas that allowed them to be here and are supposed to be leaving the country soon."
This is the letter to the editor of savannahnow.com :
To the editor:
With regard to the detention and questioning of three men from the "former" Soviet Union caught near a power plant with a shovel and wire cutters, several posts to Your web site were deleted for linking to stories about Russian/Soviet spetsnaz.
Those who posted were then banned, as if they had committed an egregious offense.
If I were a national security official I'd be burning with curiosity as to the reason for censoring such material.
Is Your paper being pressured by someone?
And why would this topic be so sensitive, so off limits, when You allowed posters to discuss the possible Jewish ethnicity of the aforementioned "former" Soviet persons?
The oblique suggestion of a jewish conspiracy is allowed, but a link to a New York Times piece on Russian special operations is deleted, along with links to GRU defector testimony from two knowledgeable experts.
Whether these deletions are due to a pro-Russian bias or to some mental block (produced, perhaps, by years of successful "active measures" against the American psyche), the deletion got my attention far more than a story about suspicious Russian-related activity (which is rather commonplace).
I don't suppose You will answer this email, but curiosity got the best of me.
