Suspect Christian Brueckner speaks out



German pedophile Christian Brueckner is the suspect in Madeleine McCann’s disappearance but denies any wrongdoing in a letter written from his prison cell

Portuguese authorities officially declared him a suspect this week, just less than a month before the 15th year since Madeleine McCann’s abduction.

Brueckner was first named as a suspect by German police in mid-2020, after mobile phone records placed him in the same area the night Madeleine disappeared.

The prime suspect is currently in a high-security prison in northwest Germany serving a seven-year sentence for the rape of a 72-year-old woman in 2005.

McFadden says that Brueckner “shockingly” responded to her and a colleague about the recent claims in Madeleine McCann’s case.

“So, he does admit to the problems that he had as a young man, but he does not admit to the rape,” says the case researcher…

“He takes blame for a lot of the things that he did, but he straight out says, I have never killed anybody, and I have never raped anybody.”

Letter from Christian Brueckner to Isabelle McFadden

“He has an actual witness … that gives him a pretty strong alibi.”

“And we don’t really think that the Portuguese are going to charge him and we have to understand that the Portuguese are the lead on this case.”

“I have a feeling that he will end up being cleared.”

McFadden suspects the Portuguese police named Brueckner as a suspect so that the investigation can continue, despite no new breakthrough findings.

She adds that she has “doubts” about the parents and that the McCann family should not be ruled out as potential suspects due to some very “damaging accusations” available against them.

Madeleine went missing on May 3, 2007, from a Portugal holiday apartment she was staying at with her family, just a few days before her fourth birthday.

Her parents Kate and Gerry were having dinner at a nearby restaurant, situated on the resort.

In 2007, the parents were made “arguidos” or “named suspects”, yet when the Portuguese police’s investigation was archived in 2008, their status was lifted.

This year will mark the 15th anniversary of then three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance from the Praia da Luz holiday resort in the Algarve, Portugal.

However, Brueckner remains the prime suspect in Madeleine’s disappearance and police investigations are continuing.

Australia’s power network is facing a terrible summer



A new report has raised concerns about potential power shortages this summer in several Australian states. With temperatures expected to soar, experts warn that the electricity grid could be under significant strain.

The report, released by the Energy Authority of Australia, highlights that New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia are at the greatest risk of experiencing blackouts. Increased demand for electricity due to air conditioning use during hot summer days is the primary driver of this concern.

The report suggests that immediate measures should be taken to mitigate these risks. These measures include improving grid infrastructure, investing in renewable energy sources, and implementing demand-side management programs to reduce peak electricity consumption.

Energy Minister Sarah Thompson acknowledged the challenges but assured the public that the government is actively working on solutions to prevent power shortages. She stated, “We are committed to ensuring a stable and reliable power supply during the summer months.”

As the summer approaches, Australians will be closely monitoring the situation, hoping that the necessary steps will be taken to ensure a steady power supply during the hottest days. #featured

USA alert test triggers memory of Hawaii missile alert



Enhancing National Preparedness: The Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test

On October 4, the United States is set to conduct a crucial nationwide emergency alert system test, a vital evaluation of the nation’s ability to disseminate critical information effectively during emergencies.

This upcoming test is a significant event, not just as a routine check but also in response to notable past incidents that underscore the imperative of a robust emergency alert system. One such incident took place on January 13, 2018, in the state of Hawaii, when an accidental alert was issued via the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alert System.

This alert, transmitted across various media platforms including television, radio, and cellphones, advised citizens to seek shelter due to an incoming ballistic missile, concluding with the chilling declaration: “This is not a drill.”

The subsequent 38 minutes and 13 seconds were filled with panic and uncertainty, until state officials clarified that the alert had resulted from a miscommunication during a routine drill at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. The incident prompted a public apology from David Ige, the governor of Hawaii, acknowledging the distress it had caused.

Additionally, it triggered investigations by the Federal Communications Commission and the Hawaii House of Representatives, ultimately leading to the resignation of the state’s emergency management administrator. This incident served as a stark reminder of the critical importance of a well-functioning, error-free emergency alert system.

Fast forward to the present, the nation is preparing for the upcoming nationwide emergency alert system test scheduled for October 4. At the designated time, a loud alert tone will resonate across all devices, followed by a test message that clearly identifies its nature as a simulation meant to evaluate the readiness and functionality of the emergency alert infrastructure. This exercise aims to assure citizens that the emergency alert system is well-prepared and efficient in conveying vital information during a crisis.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to pay close attention to this test, acquaint themselves with the alert sound and message, and comprehend its profound significance in the broader context of preparedness for potential emergencies in the future. The October 4 nationwide emergency alert system test represents a commitment to learning from past incidents and continuously improving preparedness measures to protect citizens and ensure a resilient society. It highlights the nation’s dedication to enhancing its communication systems, thereby reinforcing the safety and security of its populace.
