At least 14 people are injured with burns – including one critically – following explosion at metal manufacturing plant in Bedford, Ohio – two weeks after toxic train in East Palestine derailed


  • Multiple people are injured following an explosion at a metal manufacturing plant in Bedford, Ohio. It remains unclear what caused the explosion
  • The explosion, which happened at 2.30pm on Monday, is located just about 70 miles from East Palestine, where a toxic train derailed on February 3

At least 14 people have been injured – including one critically – following a large explosion at a metal manufacturing plant in Bedford, Ohio.

Ambulances were pictured on the scene of 1 Schumann & Co., which makes brass and bronze alloys. It remains unclear what caused the explosion at around 2.30pm Monday.

One person suffered critical injuries, while a number of people were treated for burns as molten metal and debris rained down on neighboring buildings.

The blast sent smoke billowing into the sky that could be seen for miles around the damaged factory. Emergency services have also requested the development of several medical helicopters. 

The explosion in Bedford, Ohio is located just about 70 miles northwest of East Palestine, where a toxic train derailed on February 3. It is just south of Cleveland.

All of those injured were on site, the falling debris having spared those at neighboring businesses, Oakwood Fire Department Captain Brian DiRocco said. 

‘The people were mostly walking wounded. They were coming up to us,’ DiRocco said. ‘I’m sure there’s a lot of people that work here that were in shock.’ 

Witnesses told local News 5 that there were two explosions: a small one followed by a larger one around 2.30pm. 

The brick wall of the building was completely blown away, with bricks hitting cars and businesses nearby.

Debris was also blown across the street.

‘I looked over and it was just … boom. 

‘Ridiculous, I don’t know how nothing hit me,’ a witness told News 5.

Oakwood Fire Department officials said the cause of the explosion is under investigation but called the facility a ‘relatively safe plant.’

‘It’s a foundry, so you’re dealing with molten hot metal, so there’s always an inherent danger,’ a spokesman said.

Representatives of the company, which produces copper, brass and bronze allows, could not immediately be reached for comment. The business has operated since 1917, according to its website.

Matthew Wiggins, owner of the neighboring business Rose Colored Gaming, told WOIO he heard a large explosion and that ‘within a second or two, it sounded like large amounts of debris were hitting the roof.’ 

‘Things were falling off the walls, falling off shelves. We went out front and there was like smoldering rocks and molten metal in the yard. Tons and tons of smoke. Fire billowing out of the building across the street,’ Wiggins said. 

Another witness, Joe Sarconi, said he was eating lunch in his car across the street when he heard at least two explosions that obliterated a brick wall enclosing the property.

‘A beam flew across the street. That other beam flew across the street and blew out our window,’ Sarconi said. ‘Exciting, but horrible. Source

Please pray for all those who were injured.


Biden Decides to Give the ‘WHO’ Authority Over U.S. Sovereignty

Brothers and sisters in Christ – this decision was orchestrated by the UNELECTED – UNACCOUNTABLE Powers that be i.e. Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab, Yuval Noah Harari, George Soros and the rest of LEFTIST demon-filled self-appointed dictators.

Can you just imagine Global bureaucrats able to demand vaccines, lockdowns, surveillance, and more? I believe that this will cause many of us to be incarcerated.

The World Health Organization, a subsidiary of the United Nations run by a team of bureaucrats in Geneva, soon could have the power to dictate lockdowns, vaccination mandates, social distancing and much more in the United States.

Even surveillance of citizens.

A new report from the Epoch Times explains Joe Biden is getting ready to sign the U.S. up to a “legally binding” deal that would give international politicians authority to make decisions for America during a pandemic.

And he’s maneuvering so it won’t require approval by the U.S Senate.

The report explained, “U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra joined with WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in September 2022 to announce ‘the U.S.-WHO Strategic Dialogue.’ Together, they developed a ‘platform to maximize the longstanding U.S. government-WHO partnership, and to protect and promote the health of all people around the globe, including the American people.'”

That’s resulted in a “draft” of a plan that “seeks ratification by all 194 WHO member states. A meeting of the WHO’s Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) is scheduled for Feb. 27 to work out the final terms, which all members will then sign,” the report said.

It would give the bureaucrats who follow the U.N.’s political agenda the authority to “declare and manage a global pandemic.”

All signatories would have to abide by the rules those bureaucrats would decree, including “lockdowns and vaccine mandates, global supply chains, and monitoring and surveillance of populations,” the report said.

“They want to see a centralized, vaccine-and-medication-based response, and a very restrictive response in terms of controlling populations,” David Bell, a former WHO bureaucrat, said in an interview with the Epoch Times.

“They get to decide what is a health emergency, and they are putting in place a surveillance mechanism that will ensure that there are potential emergencies to declare.”

Millions of Americans refused to submit to the vax programs imposed by the U.S. government during COVID-19, despite the open efforts by the government, health officials and drug makers to suppress information about treatments other than the experimental shots.

The premise for the entire project is that the WHO plan would “supersede” the laws of member states.

Francis Boyle, professor of international law at Illinois University, charged to the Epoch Times both ideas are “fatally dangerous.”

“Either one or both would set up a worldwide medical police state under the control of the WHO, and in particular WHO Director-General Tedros. If either one or both of these go through, Tedros or his successor will be able to issue orders that will go all the way down the pipe to your primary care physicians.”

Added Meryl Nass, a physician, “If these rules go through as currently drafted, I, as a doctor, will be told what I am allowed to give a patient and what I am prohibited from giving a patient whenever the WHO declares a public health emergency. So they can tell you you’re getting remdesivir, but you can’t have hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin. What they’re also saying is they believe in equity, which means everybody in the world gets vaccinated, whether or not you need it, whether or not you’re already immune.”

The surveillance and monitoring components of the plan would make sure there are few, in any, who disagree with the bureaucrats successfully.

The plan probably would have to get permission from the Senate eventually, but it contains a provision allowing it to be locked in on a provisional basis.

The Joe Biden administration already has talked about its plans to make sure that social media companies are given government narratives – and that they must be the only messaging allowed.

GOP members in Congress have had enough and are openly planning a way to take the U.S. out of the WHO entirely.

commentary at the Gateway Pundit blasted Biden’s plan.

“The Biden regime never fails to orchestrate an avenue to circumvent the U.S. Constitution and betray the American people. A bombshell report from the Epoch Times Saturday reveals the Regime is about to surrender America’s sovereignty to the World Health Organization (WHO) and give them full control over future pandemic policy.”

It continued, “Once America officially signs on to this agreement, we will be completely at the mercy of the globalist organization which helped the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) cover up the original COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan.” Source

‘I’m Not Done’: James O’Keefe Responds After Being Ousted From Project Veritas

I am shocked over this, and I cannot help but wonder if a ‘Soros type snake‘ somehow infiltrated Project Veritas with one goal: to oust James O’Keefe!

James O’Keefe IS Project Veritas!


James O’Keefe — the infamous exposer of liberal wrongs who founded Project Veritas in 2010 and developed the organization into a fearsome specter to mainstream media, progressive organizations, and Democrat politicians — announced on Monday that he had been “removed” by his organization’s board and has “no position here based upon what the board has done.”

In somewhat the same manner as many of his legendary narrative-shattering exposés, O’Keefe read resignation remarks on-camera as he explained his side of the fraught situation to some Project Veritas staff in the organization’s offices. That video (embedded in full below) was subsequently posted and picked up by others online.

“Journalism is reporting things powerful people want kept hidden for the wrong reasons — moral wrongs, bad behaviors — as journalists, we’re custodians of the public’s conscience,” O’Keefe said reading from prepared remarks in which he explained he “was stripped of all decision-making last week” and subsequently “stripped” of his “authority as CEO and removed from the board of directors.”

So, O’Keefe explained, “on President’s Day, I’m packing up my personal belongings here” as he recounted highs and lows from his career since he founded Project Veritas. From the ACORN exposé to being raided and arrested, to Planned Parenthood and most recently Pfizer, O’Keefe recalled the organization’s storied past before responding to some of what’s been said by the board of Project Veritas — both in private and in public.

“Leadership has a price and results often come at a human cost,” O’Keefe noted. “Many people want the fruits of leadership such as its power, results, Twitter followings, secondary effects — but the price of the responsibilities, burdens trials, hardships, difficult decisions, or just sheer suffering, I don’t think people want that.”

“All through the years, things fundamentally continued on an upward trajectory for this place,” O’Keefe said of the organization he founded and led for more than a dozen years. But then something changed in the last three weeks. “The only thing that has changed is we broke the biggest story in our organization’s history,” he said of the recent Project Veritas exposé of Pfizer. With more than 50 million views, “our video became a global phenomenon,” O’Keefe noted. 

“And then suddenly, an unusual emergency happened just a few days after that,” O’Keefe said before outlining his timeline of how things unfolded. 

There’s even more details in the full video starting around the 15:00 mark. Screenshots of alleged text messages, emails flying between Project Veritas board members, and more information paint a picture of a different timeline of events than the board relayed in its statements.
Among the developments recounted by O’Keefe that came in a series of board meetings and in communications between board members is the allegation that he once “stole a pregnant woman’s sandwich in federal court,” and used company funds for a wedding, though O’Keefe is unmarried.
As Julio reported last week, the Project Veritas board issued a statement about O’Keefe that portrayed him as simply taking well-earned time off, even though O’Keefe said the board had already acted to strip or suspend his authority within the organization without noting such developments in its public statements.

“I’m not sure what my job here is,” O’Keefe said while reading minutes from board meetings in which O’Keefe was placed on leave, denied access to donor information, and stripped of power within the organization.

At more than 45 minutes long, O’Keefe’s remarks provide more information from his point of view about what’s been going on, though he admits “none of this makes any sense, and why is it all happening right now? Those are the questions I have,” O’Keefe said. “I don’t have answers.”

Calling the Project Veritas board’s actions an “emotional circus,” O’Keefe questioned again “why there was a concerted effort to remove me the week of the biggest story we’ve ever had” and called the situation “extremely difficult.”

“My dear team, I do love many of you,” O’Keefe continued. “I never said those words, but I’ll say it now. I still believe we have a long and bright future together somehow, someway,” he added. “You are amazing people.” 

“The only way to defeat us is if they take our spirit,” O’Keefe declared. “And from the looks of things, many of us remain completely undefeated and unbroken.”

“So, our mission continues on,” O’Keefe said, getting a bit emotional. “I’m not done. The mission will perhaps take on a new name, and it may be no longer called Project Veritas,” he explained. “I’ll need a bunch of people around me, and I’ll make sure you know how to find me.”
