UFOs and Electrogravity Propulsion

Did Tesla Discover the Secrets of Antigravity?

Nikola Tesla has been credited for the creation of much of the technology that we take for granted today. Without the genius of Tesla we would not have radio, television, AC electricity, Tesla coil, fluorescent lighting, neon lighting, radio control devices, robotics, x-rays, radar, microwaves and dozens of other amazing inventions.

Because of this, it is no surprise that Tesla also delved into the world of flight and possibly, antigravity. In fact, his last patent in 1928 (#1,655,114), was for a flying machine that resembled both a helicopter and an airplane. Before he died, Tesla reportedly devised plans for the engine of a spaceship. He called it the anti-electromagnetic field drive or Space Drive.

William R. Lyne writes in Occult Ether Physics, that a lecture Tesla prepared for the Institute of Immigrant Welfare (May. 12, 1938), dealt with his Dynamic Theory of Gravity. Tesla said in his lecture that this was:

“One of two far reaching discoveries, which I worked out in all details in the years 1893 and 1894.”

While researching Tesla’s statements, Lyne discovered that more complete statements concerning these discoveries could only be gleaned from scattered and sparse sources, because Tesla’s papers are concealed in government vaults for national security reasons.

When Lyne specifically asked for these papers at the National Security Research Center (now the Robert J. Oppenheimer Research Center) in 1979, he was denied access because they were still classified. In his 1938 lecture, Tesla said he was progressing with the work, and hoped to give the theory to the world very soon.

The two great discoveries to which Tesla referred, were:

Chapter Four: Extraordinary Experiences

Chapter Four

Extraordinary Experiences

Much has been made over Tesla’s amazing ability to visualize images from his mind. This talent came mostly involuntarily and often at inopportune moments. When he was younger, Tesla worried that he was suffering from some sort of madness when his visions would appear. Later he came to realize that this particular trait was a gift and the basis of all his inventions.

Tesla’s visions were so vivid that he was sometimes unsure of what was real and what imaginary. Strong flashes of light often accompanied these images. He would wave his hand in front of his eyes to determine whether the objects were simply in his mind or outside.

In 1919, Tesla wrote of these images and of his efforts to find an explanation for them. He had consulted with several doctors and psychologists, but no one was able to help.

“The theory I have formulated is that the images were the result of a reflex action from the brain on the retina under great excitation. They certainly were not hallucinations, for in other respects I was normal and composed.

“To give and idea of my distress, suppose that I had witnessed a funeral or some such nerve wracking spectacle. Then, inevitably, in the stillness of the night, a vivid picture of the scene would thrust itself before my eyes and persist despite all my efforts to banish it. Sometimes it would even remain fixed in space though I pushed my hand through it.”

It is well known that Tesla’s conception of his AC (alternating current) motor came to him during one of his visions.

“One afternoon … I was enjoying a walk with my friend in the city park and reciting poetry. At that age I knew entire books by heart, word for word. One of these was Goethes Faust. The sun was just setting and reminded me of a glorious passage: The glow retreats, done is the day of toil; It yonder hastes, new fields of life exploring; Ah, that no wing can lift me from the soil Upon its tract to follow, follow soaring!

“As I uttered these inspiring words the idea came like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed. I drew with a stick on the sand the diagram shown six years later in my address before the American institute of Electrical Engineers.

“The images were wonderfully sharp and clear and had the solidity of metal. ‘See my motor here; watch me reverse it.'”

Tesla used his incredible power throughout his amazing career. He disliked drawing his conceptions down onto paper because they lacked the reality that Tesla’s internal drawing board could provide. For Tesla, drawing was utterly unrealistic and a nuisance.

What is Happening in the Gulf of Aden?

Posted by Admin on February 1, 2010

Note from the Admin/Author of this Website:-

I have noted and observed duly, that most of the clicks attributed to this site have been regarding the topic posted below. I understand it has been a hotbed of curiosity, interest and speculation for many alternative news researchers and also it has come across as a surprising find to a few of the more conventional and casual internet surfers.

I am unable to garner valid research material or even accurate and verifiable news from any source accessible to me so far. Also I must state I will not publish information from channelled sources unless and until I feel they are of a benevolent and unselfish state of Origin. Technically speaking there has been a massive media blackout in that part of the world where a number of guises have been pulled to keep most of our prying eyes away from what is happening in that point of space and time as of now in our linear third dimensional state of experiential Reality.

Having said that, it is necessary to understand it is not the only or most important area of anomalous activity on Our Dear Mother Earth. I will now include information from somebody I hold in high esteem and respect as a source of Integrity to help discern the viewers on the current state of events.

From http://jakane.cc/blog/?p=166

As for YemenYes there is a gate at Yemen, a major or rather a principal primary gate of great overwhelming interest to all the Off-Worlders, the Illuminati, the NWO, the Orion group and other forces on and off the Planet.The gate at Yemen is the oscillating point of the Earths Merkebah and the 8th Primary Stargate on Earth. All the lands around this gate have always been rich and full of abundant natural resources, a power center. As a matter of fact this land has always been coveted by forces on and off Planet either openly or vicariously. It is a power portal, the entrance and exit for many Off-Worlders who reside on the Planet and those who incarnated here.I asked Dr Suzanne Lie http://www.multidimensions.com about her take on this. The following is her reply…
“Hi Anthony,
I have heard the same thing about that Stargate. They made up all the stuff about the pirates to keep people away from this area. In fact, the people we were “attacked by pirates” were polluting the ocean when they were “attacked.” I don’t have much more info about it. I will ask the Arcturians,”“The Stargate at Yemen in the Gulf of Aden is, indeed, a major portal. Many vessels enter and leave Earth via this Stargate. This public opening is a part of our disclosure process. We realize that there are still many humans who are afraid of what they do not understand and will easily attach themselves to an answer that is familiar rather than face the NEW truth. Eventually, though, like water on a rock, our many manners of disclosure will change the Collective Consciousness. In fact, the United States is the most resistant of any area in the world, as Americans are among the most brainwashed. Fortunately, they are also among the most enlightened. Soon the gap between the two will lessen to find the Core of a great culture.”Well, that is what i got. Have a great weekend,
sue
I thank Suzanne for taking the time to channel this answer for our greater understanding.There has been dumping of toxic waste and manipulation by HAARP in this area for a very long time. Quakes in the gulf of Aden, the manual shifting of the plates and the obvious breaking of the Horn of Africa are all major destabilizing moves that most think nothing of. They have threatened to destroy this gate if they can not command it,  just as they have threatened to destroy New York before they  will disclose the presence of Off-Worlders on our Planet.All this would interfere with the ascension process for all of us and prevent the Earth from being able to fire her grid which is almost complete. Their commanding this gate in the worst case will destabilize the balance of energies coming from the torsion waves that are speeding up the Planet. They would then be able to spin the Earths staff and rods causing ultimate destruction. Another possible outcome is just the interference with the energies moving our consciousness into the 9th and final level of creation before conscious co-creation in Nov 2011.Frankly the whole of life here and the Planet herself are at stake. Yet I know that we, humankind and the Forces of Light will triumph. I have no doubt of this no matter how hard they want me to feel differently. We all shall triumph in light!

BELOW IS THE DATA CLUSTER ENDING WITH THE === Double Blocked LINE

This is just a very brief note to draw attention to something that may be important. These are my latest Tweets copy and pased.

 

OK, Yemen is back again. The supposed Somali pirates are nothing of the sort. What we have, apparently, is a stargate in the Gulf of Aden.I just listened to an interview between Kerry (ProjectCamelot.org) and Aaron McCollum, a self-professed super soldierhttp://alturl.com/prh6 Super soldier / Manchurian Candidate stuff aside, McCollum’s statements about a stargate at the Gulf of Aden could be legitimate. The Gulf of Aden is right off of Yemen’s shore (http://alturl.com/nhog), and McCollum says there are mil. vessels from many countries there. Remember this article I linked to about our sudden, curious interest in Yemen – http://alturl.com/ushd ? There are discussions about the Gulf of Aden at Godlikeproductions.com (http://alturl.com/x5u6) and Abovetopsecret.com (http://alturl.com/5xj2). McCollum says the pirate story is a cover for what is really happening – http://alturl.com/exmy This is presumably a photo of the stargate (below).

BRIEF UPDATE – FEBRUARY 20, 2010: “EARTHQUAKE CONNECTION AND MAGNETIC ANOMALY”

 

link

 

An earthquake registering at 6.3 shook the Gulf of Aden on Saturday, January 2, 2010, as reported in this article. Excerpt,

 

 

An earthquake registering a magnitude of 6.3 struck the Gulf of Aden between Yemen and Somalia on Saturday, but preliminary reports from Yemen said it appeared to have caused little damage.

Residents of Yemen’s port city of Aden said they did not feel any shaking during the time the quake occurred.

Due to civil unrest in nearby Somalia, there were no immediate reports that the earthquake had caused any injuries or damage in that country.

 

 

SOURCE

 

The Gulf of Aden has been determined to have something known as an “axial magnetic anomaly”. From nature.com,

 

 

Gulf of Aden axial magnetic anomaly and the Curie temperature isotherm

D. Tamsett & R. W. Girdler

School of Physics, The University, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7RU, UK

The main features of magnetic anomalies over ocean ridges have been explained1 as a corollary of seafloor spreading and geomagnetic reversals. Oceanic crust is formed in a narrow region, becoming magnetized in the direction of the Earth’s magnetic field as its temperature falls through the Curie point of the magnetic minerals present.

The Gulf of Aden was one of the first places where reversely magnetized sea floor was recognized2. The seafloor spreading direction and latitude are such that the anomaly due to normal magnetization is negative and slightly skewed. Positive anomalies were also observed suggesting the presence of reverse magnetization. A short wavelength magnetic anomaly which frequently occurs superimposed on the axial magnetic anomaly in the Gulf of Aden is now described.

Various interpretations are considered; the preferred involves a dramatic shallowing of the Curie temperature isotherm close to the seafloor spreading centre. The interpretation has implications for models of the generation of oceanic lithosphere and for locating possible geothermal areas in rifted regions.

 

 

SOURCE

 

A string of references are listed after the above article.

 

Here’s some possible background on the stargate- http://alturl.com/xvmr McCollum says the underwear bomber (http://alturl.com/up6h) and the Ft. Hood shooting (http://alturl.com/7gdw) were Aden related false flags.

 

McCollum says the U.S. intelligence community (factions of our gov. / mil.) is responsible for these false flag attacks and has predictably publicly linked these events with Yemen, paving the way for our entre into and control of that region.You can Google “Gulf of Aden Stargate” and get a lot more info – http://alturl.com/zi5r I’m not sure what to make of all of this yet as it’s still new to me, but the implications are fascinating and potentially very profound.

 

I’m curious if the Norway spiral and the earthquake in Haiti are related. Because everything is interconnected, I can’t help but think they are.

 

UPDATE: JAN. 29, 2010

 

In the little time I have to do so, I’ve done some more research on Yemen (and its capital Sana’a) I didn’t come up with much as far as potential threat to the U.S. military (nothing that wasn’t U.S.-created under false flags, etc., anyway).

 

What I did come up with was a very poor, undeveloped, but highly religious culture nested in a very ancient region.

 

I have to stop here and take a breath. After about ten minutes or so of perusing photos and reading Yemen-related articles I just got this sad, sick feeling.

 

This is the pain of someone seeing another culture – another land, populated with loving, hopeful people, about to be ground down and destroyed a la Vietnam, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Afghanistan, Iran and countless others stretching back in a deplorable history of manipulation and senseless death.

 

I am looking at photos of this ancient land, and these terribly impoverished people with full knowledge that the powers directing the United States government and all of its assets have targeted Yemen as their next conquest – for whatever purpose.

 

And I’m not just talking about the U.S. bombing civilians in an attempt to root out Al-Qaeda – as much as a joke that has become. Let’s face it, Al-Qaeda is now the U.S. government’s carte blanche to now waltz into any territory with all its military might and to absolutely destroy it.

 

What I’m also talking about are the U.S.-led, MK Ultra or other agency false flag attacks that will occur in public places that will invariably kill innocent Yemen citizens.

 

This means the U.S. government killing innocent Yemen citizens through agents disguised as terrorists, so they can lead Yemen and the world to believe Al-Qaeda is there and they need the U.S.’s help.  Believe me, even the citizens of the U.S. government don’t want their help.

 

The military destroys – they are designed to create death and destruction. The only reason you’ll see the U.S. military enter some far region to help the backwards locals toughen up their army and help fight terrorism is because they have a tactical interest in that region.

 

If the U.S. military enters your country and offers “assistance” you can damn near expect your incidents of terrorist attacks to actually increase. Why? Because the U.S. is doing it to scare you into thinking you need their help – they’re doing it at home!

 

As soon as you grasp the “Problem, Reaction, Solution” scenario – and you are able to accept the fact that your own government would actually kill innocents to advance its own agenda, then you can read these seemingly unconnected events like a book.

 

And that is actually a terribly sad and absolutely tragic novel. It’s pathetic. What these actions do is not just destroy lives and remove beings from an isolated region on this planet – these actions affect the entire planet is a very direct and very real way.

 

They certainly affect me in such a way that I would like to stop reading and writing about them. Seeing this situation in its early stages, and knowing what’s ahead just turns my stomach. And there’s nothing I, you, or anyone else can do about it. Almost.

 

David Wilcock has spoken about a large enough group’s ability to reduce or ward off violence simply through collective meditation (prayer?) on the matter.

 

If there are any individuals associated with any such group who are reading this article now I would say Yemen is a good place to direct your thoughts.

 

I see these innocent, uneducated and unwitting citizens being led to their death; or at least to a point where they might wish they were. If they were educated on the matters we now understand quite clearly, then maybe they and their government would have that data and know how to respond appropriately.

 

It really wouldn’t matter anyway, because the U.S. would increase terrorist attacks to the point, or engage in some other form of forceful coercion that the country would yield. As it stands now, this is likely to turn out like everything else the U.S. and its military get their hands in.

 

I’ve only been on this planet for about three-and-a-half decades (give or take) and it absolutely amazes me that human beings can be so methodical and soulless (often taking pleasure in) in carrying out the dictates of the sinister beings who guide them (the forces behind the U.S., UK, and other governments).

 

As was stated by a recent Project Camelot (and Coast to Coast) witness (perhaps Andrew Basiago), however, the agency you’re working for will perform a battery of psychological testing and place you accordingly. If they determine that you could “kill a kid”, according to this witness, they would place you accordingly.

 

Going deep into esoteric and ancient conspiracies, of which I’m an adherent, it’s been pretty well established that there are extraterrestrial or multidimensional forces who have either manipulated, hijacked the bodies of, or straight out replaced and pose as the powers that be on this planet.

 

These beings are not human, and have no concern for humanity save as chess pieces for some ancient agenda. This may be too much for many to swallow and that’s fine. However, it is only through this understanding that I can begin to grasp what has been done, is being done, and what will be done by man to man in the future with such callous and soullessness.

 

It’s been said that these beings have somehow influenced the mental state of human beings they don’t physically control (i.e., government officials, etc.), and have presented themselves in a very compelling way as having the ability to either wipe them/us out, or to have shown the powers that be a very compelling and terrifying version of our future these beings ostensibly wish to help us avoid.

 

Regardless of its source, the machinations remain the same. I see a definite end to these games, however, but I cannot say when, or how. Some of what McCollum shares in his interview with Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot includes his speculation that this stargate at the Gulf of Aden may in fact be an act by friendly ETs, for whatever purpose, but which may be a harbinger of positive things to come.

 

It has been very well established as far as I’m concerned that forces beyond the scope of our understanding, and possibly that of these dark manipulators, have an even greater, positive agenda. We are indeed seeing the culmination of this shift.

 

We will witness this, apparently, in a very profound way, on a personal level, over the next forty-eight months. In fact, we are in it, and every second is an opportunity for us to see something profound on a personal level. It’s actually happening now.

 

But that’s neither here nor there. I’m talking about Yemen (although they may end up being related).

 

I wanted to share some of the images I found of Yemen, and it’s capital, Sana’a.

 

First, take a look at the region of Yemen (GOOGLE IMAGE LINK). It’s a desert region. You’ve gathered that from the satellite photo. And upon closer inspection you get an idea of life on the ground.

 

This article offers some of the history of Sana’a. Essentially, Yemen is an ancient region that hasn’t seemed to have developed, at all, in the thousands of years it’s been there.

Mud. They’ve got lots of it. They build their houses out of it.

 

The local terrorist groups, the Huthi rebels or the Zaidi, often make short work of the local structures and blow them up.

It’s a wonder the name Sana’a means “Fortified Place“. It’s also very sad.

 

We can already see this place is no match for the might of the U.S. military. Our military should be proud.

 

The architecture in Yemen is simple, but actually very striking.

I’m actually having difficulty putting these pictures up. These are candid shots of people going about their lives before something terrible is potentially unleashed. These are people’s sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and grandfathers.

 

Imagine your son, or mother, or father in these images.

This country just recently celebrated the inauguration of their web presence(!).

Here’s a LINK to their shiny, new website. Love that new website smell!

 

It appears the U.S. has had a military presence in Yemen for some time. At least since 2005.  What McCollum said in his Project Camelot interview is that he believes the U.S. may have known about this stargate for some time, but may not have been actively pursuing, or interested in it (my own guess would be possibly because it was inactive).

 

What is also interesting, and this is linked to at the beginning of this article, are the ancient petroglyphs that were apparently recently discovered in Yemen (see images below), which only adds to the mystery of what’s happening there.

Are these petroglyphs connected to the stargate?

 

As early as January 2009, the U.S. was introducing (and linking) Al-Qaeda rhetoric with Yemen as this article shows. In September of 2009, the media began to intimate that Yemen would be the U.S.’s next battleground against Al-Qaeda, calling it “America’s next nightmare”.

 

Preceding this (and concurrent with it) was the Somali pirates issue, which became the focus of 2008 / 2009’s false flag / Yemen / Gulf of Aden intelligence operations.

 

Just thinking out loud here, one would have to imagine that a great fear of the area, followed by a predictable and visible military response to that fear (problem, reaction, solution), would allow said military to secure that area (for everyone’s protection), and without drawing too much attention.

 

This issue actually expanded far beyond simply a U.S.-sourced false flag operation, because every country with a military ship suddenly became involved.

 

The Somali pirates (see fearsome image below) has apparently also become the pretense under which many other countries’ military forces have entered the region. It’s like this big inside joke.

Here is the pirate map (below).

(Image source)

 

As you can see above, the earliest successful attack (February 25) was right at the Gulf of Aden, nearest the stargate area.

 

McCollum speculates that interest in the stargate may have come later, but seeing the obviously transparent pretext of Somali pirates, and the vastly disproportionate response to the “four-men-in-a-boat” scenario we can clearly see something was in the works by or before 2008.

 

This situation has became even more bizarre (not to mention conscpicuous) as, just as McCollum has stated, military ships from GermanyAustraliaIndiaJapan, China, Russia, the U.S., Turkey, UK, and a whole host of others suddenly began sending military ships to the region in 2009.

 

Here’s a quick guest list for the anti-piracy party at the Gulf of Aden (pictured below).

 

pic

 

(Image source)

 

You will see that as of December 2009, many countries suddenly take an interest in what amounts to an out-of-the-way area near a more traveled shipping route.

 

This Google article talks about China actually considering putting a permanent base at the Gulf of Aden to deal with the pirate issue. Is that the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard? That’s a stretch. A real stretch.

 

If you Google “military ships gulf of aden” you can read more about this sudden interest.

 

So, it’s a big party at the Gulf of Aden. And concurrent with this seaside blockade is the United States’ prepackaged and rhythmic rollout of false flag attacks all aimed at getting U.S. forces where – Yemen; so they can set up camp right on the coast and continue their operations at the stargate.

 

Here’s an unvetted and unspellchecked article from December 2009 entitled, “The United States’s Secret War in Yemen”, which dutifully follows along with the U.S.’s anti-Yemen rhetoric, including providing unverified statements about U.S. missiles entering Yemen, targeting Al-Qaeda encampments.

 

I love this one from January 2009 with a photo of U.S. led Yemeni soldiers “looking for Al-Qaeda”,

 

pic

 

(Caption from website: “Yemeni military forces have surrounded a mountainous region of Shabwa near the Abyan border to search for possible members of al-Qaeda. They have been there since Tuesday.”) [Emphasis added]

 

“There’s one!”

 

Also, another article from December 2009, entitled, “Official: Behind scenes, U.S. prodding Yemen to confront al Qaeda“, indicates that the U.S. got all up in Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh’s bidness about the terror suspects they most likely placed in his country,

 

 

Washington (CNN)  — “Solid intelligence” from U.S. and Yemen services finally persuaded Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh last summer to accept increased help in fighting al Qaeda in his country, a senior U.S. official told CNN.

 

 

SOURCE ARTICLE

 

You see, in the old days, the mafia would do the same thing. They would send some of their own to threaten a business owner, then they would pay the business owner a visit and pressure the business owner into giving them protection money. The details have changed, but the game is the same.

 

It’s ridiculous. Here’s another article from December 2009 (this was a hot time – they must have suspected this stargate was gonna pop) that talks about a U.S. supported Yemeni attack on a suspected Al-Qaeda location.

 

Here’s an article from December 31, 2009, that discusses a sudden, sharp increase in U.S. military and other aid to Yemen. You get a real sense that the U.S. government officials are just tossing money, military and goods at Yemen like it was going out of style.

 

Then, a big one, January 6, 2010, a day after McCollum said that the stargate became active an article comes out entitled, “Yemen captures key Al-Qaeda chief as embassies reopen”. The U.S. is tossing a bone to the duped Yemen leadership (or public) by justifying their presence there, which must be pretty off-putting.

 

And more recently, here’s an article from January 10, 2010, stating that the U.S. embassy is tossing yet more aid at Yemen. I don’t think Yemen’s going to respect them in the morning.

 

Of course, now that, literally, the world is at the Gulf of Aden with the U.S., it may be more difficult to undertake their mission there and escape notice. Wonder if any deals are being struck by the other countries present and the U.S.

 

They certainly have to see the Yemen Al-Qaeda issue as as much of a joke as we do. They’re already in on the Somali joke, so we must assume they’re not buying that the U.S. has something else coincidentally going on near the stargate at the same time.

 

If events on our little planet go as they typically do, this situation, like many in the past, will draw a lot of attention, and then will just die down. There are things that have been done, are done, and will be done on this planet that are probably as significant this, but which have gone mostly unnoticed.

 

It’s too bad. It’s too bad that there is another situation that has potentially profound implications for our race, but which may be usurped by the U.S. and other governments and removed from our sight.

 

What is even worse is the absolutely ridiculous games of mass murder and equally unconscionable criminal acts against man and nature that will be perpetrated to further their aims. All being done under our watchful and aware, but helpless gaze.

 

We know it. We see it, but we can’t do anything about it. And as much as those of us now awake would like to turn away and return to our little lives, we can’t. The effect is doubled; as is the harm these acts create.

 

I debated adding to this article versus letting my brief note stand. It really doesn’t feel good to know this stuff, and it certainly doesn’t feel good to look into the eyes of another wonderful race of beings who are, or will suffer at the hands of our brutal government.

 

At the same time, if you are moved by what’s happening around you, you can do a lot for those unable to understand these circumstances, or if they do, to express themself and share this information.

 

I’ve decided it’s my personal responsibility to share what I can, and given the suffering many others are going through without the benefit of this information, it’s the least I can do.

 

Whether or not there’s something to the stargate information, what we do know is happening that is wrong must be acknowledged and shared. I’m sure there’s a record of the atrocities being committed by those in power, but I’ll add my two cents while I can.

 

 

UPDATE: JAN. 30, 2010

Concurrent with these developments is a recent find at NASA’s stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov SOHO obervatory websute of large objects around the sun, some of them spherical.

UPDATE: FEB. 08, 2010

I received several of the NASA images with enlargements of some of the objects around the sun (see imm. below) from a friend.

(CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER VERSION)

 

The objects (above), and in the rest of the photos are clearly physical, three-dimensional objects and not pixelation, or image artifacts. They do in fact appear to be craft and, given that, we must assume by the size and proximity to the sun that they are not ours…

UPDATE: FEBARUARY 12, 2010An Abovetopsecret.com thread was opened with more recent, very compelling images from February 8 and 9, 2010 – LINK.

 

Examiner.com article on objects.

 

One poster at Godlikeproductions.com says these large objects, speculated to be the size of the Earth, began appearing in images of the sun around January 18, 2010.

 

pic

(Image source)

 

I’ve seen the photos and video and can’t say what I’m looking at, save to say these objects, if real, would be very, very large and would have to be extraterrestrial in nature judging by their size and movements alone.

 

They would be too massive as just meteors, and they appear to hover around the sun and not fly past or into it. Just to name a couple of anomalous things about them.

 

In addition, NASA quickly and quietly removed all of the offending images from their website shortly after this was made known.

 

The objects could also be video artifacts, but a great deal of evidence is being accumulated, including video from different angles of the objects.

 

NASA has since removed the most compelling images from its website, but not before several Youtube users could capture video, and two conspiracy / ufo message boards shared their data.

 

Here are links to the most prominent Youtube videos I’ve found on the matter:

UPDATE: JAN. 31, 2010

The examiner.com website just published a fascinting article as a study of the sun objects entitled, “Giant UFOs around the Sun? NASA claims malfunction, physicist says giant ET UFOs use Sun’s star gate“.

 

 

UPDATE: FEB. 1, 2010

 

I found more information on the petroglyphs at Yemen, which seam to be similar to petroglyphs recently found at other locations. Also indicated is some sort of event that these petroglyphs seem to portend. I haven’t done more research on these other findings, so I’ll add what I can when I have more.

 

Here is an excerpt from a 2012gregg.blogspot.com article from March (2009) entitled, “Ancient Language of Universal Symbols Discovered“,

 

Over the last several years, similar petroglyphs have been identified on as many as five continents. They all date from roughly the same time-period. In the late 20th century, archaeologists discovered a collection of symbols carved in stone as petroglyphs in the Negev desert of Israel that appeared to be writing.

 

Dating of these symbols showed that they were made over an extended period time, beginning around 1700 BC This strange collection of symbols was first examined by Dr. James Harris, a petroglyph expert and archaeologist from Brigham Young University.

 

He identified the alphabet as being a proto-Canaanite system, which successfully translated by using old-Hebrew or Thalmudic phonetic sounds.

Earlier, William McGlone, an amateur archaeologist and retired space engineer, discovered the same collection of symbols carved in heavily patinated stones surrounding the Southeast town of La Junta, Colorado. Dating of the patina corresponded to the same era as the writing found in Harkarkom in Israel.

The petroglyphs in Colorado were photographed and posted on the Internet. Within a few years, images of similar petroglyphs were sent to the site where the images were hosted, Viewzone, by archaeologists and historians from many different global locations.

 

This included a huge collection of writing from the Republic of Yemen at the site of the palace of the Queen of Sheba.

Strangely, both the writing in Colorado and Yemen spoke of a similar event, possibly related to the Sun, which was prophesied to change human civilization. Subsequent translations of sites in Oklahoma, Australia and South America have added more details about this future event.

The majority of the petroglyphs have already been verified to be of ancient origin, which makes it quite puzzling to experts. How did they all have the same language and tell the same story on opposite ends of a globe? Perhaps our ancient ancestors traveled more than previously thought possible.

Research is currently being conducted to further validate the authenticity and common features of the writing.

UPDATE – FEBRUARY 23, 2010

 

Another article at notanotherconspiracy.com on the Gulf of Aden situation.

 

 

UPDATE: MARCH 19, 2010

I came across an interesting mention of the Gulf of Aden situation at a website for the Asklepius Light Center (alcseattle.com).

 

I’m sharing this only because I just happened to come across two independent sources suggesting something may happen on March 20, 2010 (tomorrow).

 

I don’t think anything’s going to happen tomorrow, but I post this simply because of the interesting coincidence (you never know).

 

I first want to cite an anonymous post at Godlikeproductions.com. Typically, I will avoid using or making reference to any of the hundreds of hoaxed prognostication posts at GLP, but include this as the date was also memtioned at the Asklepius site.

 

An individual posting anonymously at Godlikeproductions.com in a thread entitled, “i know what’s going on” says they the following,

alright folks.

i’m not a regular of glp- in fact, i only learned of this place a few days ago, but it has been an integral part of piecing together the last pieces of the puzzle that i have been trying to solve ( assigned? ) my whole life, which is the meaning of life. i’m not a conspiracy theorist, and i’m not religious.

 

 

i am capable of automatic writing. i aced every single writing assignment in high school english ap. my automatic writing style varies drastically from that of my normal. i also am capable of channeling, but only when i’m under extreme stress. i’m not going to analyze what i’m writing right now, but i’m sure some of it is being written automatically.

with this i will not claiming to be a psychic or a prophet.

a lot of what i am about to tell you is going to sound like the average nutcase theory, and this is completely understandable. i’m no stranger to being called mentally ill, but what i am about to present to you has been proven to me 100% full and in fact as of yesterday when i spotted several in the sky in the span of three hours in two different locations.

i have never seen a ufo in my life, nor believed them 100%. ( if the term agnosticism can be applied to ufo’s, then i guess you could call me an agnostic ufo kind of guy ) yesterday i saw seven of them, and they were consistent with the recent lake erie sightings, the japan sightings of the bird “orbs” that was posted yesterday, as well as many other orb videos available.

when i started attempting to film them, i still saw them, but they were too far up in the sky to focus.

not a coincidence.

( they’re not aliens )

right now we are getting thrown omens out of the ying yang. i witnessed birds flying north as the snow melted yesterday. i’ve been on top of reports of masses of animals behaving oddly, dying in groups for no reason, fish washing up ashore. there are too many weather anomalies going on- now there’s a sandstorm in china, on top of tropical storms aplenty. storms in australia, political figures are dying.

but here in canada, it’s thirty degrees above the normal seasonal temperature right now.

these are metaphors.

what is happening right now is the ramp-up to a global change in consciousness. sides are flipping, and they’re flipping completely metaphorically. those regions who have done harm in universal eyes are experiencing their own wrongdoings. it is beyond our control. the government is aware of this, and this is why politicians are beginning to show a little honesty ( obama donates his nobel prize, kevin garm’s recent confession of pedophilia… ). i can not speak for certain, but i’m sure you will see more of this in recent days.

i stress: this is not coincidence

karma is surfacing on a global scale. it is predictable only by scrutiny of the moral values and actions of areas of the world. there are no weather trends. we can not track the destruction, and we can -not- predict it, although i do have one date of interest.

if this is not apparent to you, it will become very soon: march twentieth. this is the date that i am offering. it is not my own prediction, but it is the one that makes sense.

our ”second chance” from the bible that we blew was 9/11. it was staged, but not by our universe. it was both an omen and a metaphor.

a metaphor that the material world is only that- material. what is important is in your head. this omen was presented on the ”emergency” date. 9-11 is the american distress code.

unfortunately, we saw this event as a chance to continue our demolition of the human condition and bond- and now we’re facing consequences.

here are some facts that i have compiled:

only one of the zeta ‘talks’ is real, the rest is a mixture of half-truths and chest-puffing psychic bullshit.
you should be listening to israel right now.
we’re all going to die, but you should not be afraid.
you should be setting your priorities straight right now.
you should be setting your priorities straight right now.
there is no hell.
you’re not supposed to be afraid of all of this.
every truth is hidden in plain sigh.
your dreams are metaphors.
infinite is the most important concept known to man.
the bible is half-true. do not dismiss it completely, but believe what you want. this applies to every single religion in the world.
the near-complete and slightly incorrect book of religious truth is available in a book that was never a best-seller, and is available in an on-line format. look up carla rueckert.

believe what you want. i wish only to present you with information- scrutiny of my ideas is not only encouraged, but it is wholly a part of the process. use your own mind to assess what i am telling you.

i will end this post by encouraging you to begin analyzing your own life more, and perhaps a little less of those figures in power around you.

My own thoughts are that the above is just another hoax thread.

 

After seeing the above, I came across the alcseattle.com article by Mahala Gayle, who was just a guest (March 16, 2010) on James Gilliland’s Contact Has Begun Show (at Puja Network Radio). Here is some background on Mahala from alcseattle.com,

 

Mahala Gayle is an Astrologer, writer, lecturer, minister, one of the founders of the Asklepius Light Center, the editor of the Asklepius Light Center Newsletter since 1988 and writer/editor of Planet Alert articles.

 

Planet Alert articles have appeared in many publications over the years.

Studying the science of Astrology since the early 1980’s has allowed her to become an expert in Mundane Astrology (study of world events).

 

Over the years, her tracking of the planets in connection with their relationship to earthquakes, floods, storms, volcanic eruptions and other natural phenomenons as well as man made phenomenons (such as war) enhances her abilities as an expert Mundane Astrologer.

Mahala Gayle has also extensively studied the Book of Revelation in the Bible.   From that study she has been able to correlate the Bible and its relationship with the stars.

 

She has appeared on many local (Puget Sound Area) TV programs discussing this topic in depth. After watching the predicted events transpire one after another, she came to the conclusion that there is a master plan in action and a path to understanding that master plan is through Astrology.

Evidence that Astrology is a path to understanding this plan, is best demonstrated by the history of Jesus.

 

The science of Astrology was held in high esteem during the time of Jesus, as the wise men (Magi) who visited Jesus shortly after his birth, were known to be Astrologers.

 

SOURCE PAGE

 

Now, here are the related statements from Mahala Gayle at alcseattle.com,

 

 

On March 20 we will experience the Spring Equinox and the Sun will move into the fire sign Aries. On March 10 the planet Mars will go direct again after three months in its retrograde phase.

 

With Mars moving direct, we should see more action as events start happening faster and faster. Have you been looking for a job and not been able to find one? Maybe this energy will open up some opportunities for you.

 

 

The Spring Equinox chart is very powerful. The ascendant is in opposition to the Galactic Center and is making a 90 degree angle to Uranus. This will bring in a lot of energy from the heavens – maybe even a large solar flare.

 

With the Sun in exact opposition to Saturn square Pluto there will be a lot of energy of transformation in the air. I agree it appears very dark right now but that is just an illusion.

 

Of course illusions can appear very real, and the drums of war are beating again, like Israel threatening Iran. We will see where that goes, and what about all the war ships gathered in the Gulf of Aden?

 

The Spring Equinox is on one degree Aries which refers to a woman who has just risen from the sea. This is like the birth of a new baby who comes out of the womb (water) of the mother.

 

This is very interesting if you read what it says in 2 Esdra chapter 13, a book that was taken out of the Bible. Here’s what it says,” After seven days, I dreamed a dream in the night, and behold, a wind arose from the sea and stirred up all its waves, and I looked, and behold, this wind made something like the figure of a man/woman come up out of the heart of the sea.

 

And I looked and behold, that man flew with the clouds of heaven, and wherever he turned his face to look, everything under his gaze trembled, and whenever his voice issued from his mouth, all who heard his voice melted as wax melts when it feels the fire.”

 

Is this a man/women in a UFO that comes out of the sea, or is it some kind of magnetic energy, or is it both?

 

“After this I looked, and behold, an innumerable multitude of men were gathered together from the four winds of heaven to make war against the man who came up out of the sea.” (Doesn’t that sound like what is happening in the Gulf of Aden with war ships from all over the world observing the Stargate that just opened in that area?)

 

It goes on to say “After this I looked, and behold, all who had gathered together against him, to wage war with him, were much afraid, yet dared to fight.

 

And behold, when he saw the onrush of the approaching multitude, he neither lifted his hand nor held a spear or any weapon of war; but I saw only how he sent forth from his mouth, as it were a stream of fire, and from his lips a flaming breath, and from his tongue he shot forth a storm of sparks.

 

This destroyed the multitude that was prepared to make war on him.” Does this mean that if it is a UFO that comes out of the sea and someone fires on it they will be destroyed?

 

The book goes on to say, “As for you seeing a man come up from the heart of the sea, this is he whom the Most High has been keeping for many ages, who will himself deliver his creation; and he will direct those who are left.

 

And as for your seeing wind and fire and a storm coming out of his mouth, and as for his not holding a spear or weapon of war, yet destroying the onrushing multitude which came to conquer him, this is the interpretation.

 

Behold, the days are coming when the Most High will deliver those who are on the earth. And bewilderment of mind shall come over those who dwell on the earth.

 

And they shall plan to make war against one another, city against city, place against place, people against people and kingdom against kingdom. And when these things come to pass and the signs occur which I showed you before, then my Son will be revealed, whom you saw as a man coming up from the sea.”

 

“And when all the nations hear his voice, every man shall leave his own land and the warfare that they have against one another, and an innumerable multitude shall be gathered together, as you saw, desiring to come and conquer him.

 

But he will stand on the top of Mount Zion. And Zion will come and be made manifest to all people and he will destroy the multitude that come against him without effort by the law and he will defend the righteous and will show them many wonders.

 

Just as no one can explore or know what is in the depths of the sea, so no one on earth can see my Son or those who are with him until the time of the end.” So Be It!

 

When I first read Esdra many years ago, I wondered what in the world it meant by saying a man will come out of the sea. Now it all makes sense with our knowledge of UFOs and the opening of the Stargate in the Gulf of Aden with all the war ships gathered together in that area.

 

The 17th and 18th chapters of Revelation talk about the fall of Babylon (Baghdad) which has taken seven years to complete. The war started on March 20, 2003 and now we are at March 20, 2010.

 

We have also been manifesting the 19th chapter of Revelation because in my interpretation it talks all about UFOs, like the White Horse (ship) appearing in the heavens.

 

The end of the 19th chapter talks about how the beast and the kings of the earth gather to make war against him who sits upon the horse (ship) and against his army. The 20th chapter is the downfall of the beast.

 

Then the 21st and 22nd chapters talk about the new heaven and the new earth.

I’m not saying that Stargate event will happen on March 20 because I don’t know, but I think it’s a good idea to keep your eye on that part of the world.

Do I believe something’s going to happen tomorrow? In all honesty, no.

 

I’m sure, however, that the people heading to work on the morning of September 11, 2001, or more recently, the people in Haiti, or the people in Chile didn’t think anything was going to happen either. This is a time when anything can (and has) happen.

 

UPDATE – MARCH 21, 2010

 

I’m sitting at my computer with nothing to report as having happened yesterday, the first day of Spring. Save that the weather was beautiful and I’m looking forward to an interesting year.

 

 

UPDATE: MAY 20, 2010

In Part One of a two part interview (LINK – DIRECT AUDIO LINK PART ONE) with a channeled being called iON on Aaron McCollum, Benjamin Fulford and Dolores Cannon, iON explains that there is a “gate” in the Gulf of Aden, and that the U.S. actually lost a ship to this gate.

 

iON explains that those present are trying to prevent anyone from going through the gate, as well as anyone from coming from the gate.

USA blamed for Haiti Earthquake!

Posted by Admin on January 27, 2010

On April 28, 1997 U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen made the following statement:

“Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations.It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.”

Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

Note that the Secretary did not speak the words in square blocks; these were added by the writers later, probably to “soften the tone” of the Secretary’s information release. So the Secretary confirmed that some nations of the world — not just some ragged terrorists, as the writers tried to imply for spin control — do possess novel electromagnetic weapons and are using them to induce earthquakes, engineer the weather and climate, and trigger volcanic eruptions.

In the case of Turkey, the quake might have been just another target practice shot by the KGB/Russians. In Russia, these weapons are totally under the control of the KGB, including research, development, manufacturing, deployment, and manning and firing the weapons. The weapons are not in the conventional Russian armed forces at all.

The weapons referred to by Secretary Cohen are longitudinal EM wave interferometers (LWIs). Longitudinal EM waves easily travel through the ocean and earth with very little loss. In a distant interference zone, there appears real EM energy again, of the kind we have in our textbooks. However, the energy arises from spacetime itself in the interference zone, as proven by M.W. Evans, P.K. Anastasovski, T.E. Bearden et al., “On Whittaker’s Representation of the Electromagnetic Entity in Vacuo: The Production of Transverse Fields and Energy by Scalar Interferometry,” Journal of New Energy, 4(3), Winter 1999, p. 76-78. (That entire issue of JNE contains some 60 papers by the Alpha Foundation’s Institute for Advanced Study (AIAS), dealing with the kind of higher symmetry electrodynamics needed to understand such weapons).

Though tested in prototype in the 1950s, the first strategic LWIs were deployed in Russia in April 1963, and were used to kill the U.S.S. Thresher nuclear attack submarine, underwater off the East coast of the United States, in April 1963. The signatures of the kill are 100% decisive. One day later, the same weapon placed an enormous electromagnetic burst (explosion) deep underwater, 100 miles north of Puerto Rico. From the surface of the ocean there arose a giant cone of water, rising a half mile into the air, turning into a mushroom, and falling back into the sea. This was the second test of the new Russian strategic LWIs, under KGB control. By this test and the fact that the West did not even recognize what killed the Thresher, Khrushchev managed to stay in power another two years or so, after his Cuban Crisis fiasco where he lost face in front of the entire world.

World-wide weather engineering started in earnest by the Russians on July 4, 1976 — as a quirky sense of humor and “bicentennial gift” to the United States.

The weapons have been used to shoot down aircraft, etc. worldwide also, mostly as tests, and have also destroyed ICBMs shortly after launch.

So while I cannot say for sure what generated the quake you spoke of, it easily could have been done by the KGB or by their protégées (a powerful and very wealthy rogue Japanese group, consisting of the Yakuza and the Aum Shinrikyo). At the end of 1989, the KGB/Russians — who had developed even more powerful weapons — leased many of their on-site earlier LWIs to a rogue Japanese group comprised of Yakuza and Aum Shinrikyo. Since then, weather control and engineering, and shoot-down of missiles and aircraft, have largely been done by this rogue group, under the close control of the KGB. Aircraft shot down included the TWA-800, e.g. and others.

The world is actually a secretly armed camp, armed to the teeth with unpublicized highly secret weapons, waiting to explode like a powderkeg at the touch of a match. These developments have eluded most of the scientific communities of the Earth (who are still mostly using a decrepit, hoary old U(1) electromagnetics theory put together in 1864, which is totally a material fluid flow theory and riddled with known errors, omissions, and curtailments). The developments over several decades also completely eluded the news media of the world, who are more concerned these days with yellow journalism than probing and investigating news. As an example, not a single news agency even reacted to the astounding revelation of Secretary Cohen, which merely shows how well the news media have brainwashed themselves with their own “formula news” and propaganda.

Presently, the world energy crisis — and particularly the “cheap oil” part of it — is being deliberately engineered from behind the scenes to escalate and place ever-increasing financial burdens on nations of the world. The plan is that the world economy is to be strained to the breaking point, so that it will begin seriously collapsing about 2008. A year or so before that (and perhaps even sooner), the despairing nations with their economies crumbling will be in increasingly great conflicts. This is rather like many independent and clashing servomechanisms, with the gain on their amplifiers being ever increased. Simple servo analysis shows such a system self-destructs because its conflict rises asymptotically to quick destruction.

In short, the nations of the world will unleash all the weapons of mass destruction in their arsenals; the only “defense” a nation has in the era of such mass weapons is to strike fast and with all its might, to destroy its perceived enemies before they destroy it. Years ago, all our strategic studies — back when we did them honestly and not for political correctness — clearly showed this “spasm response” by nations in total desperation; there was no other way out for any nation, once the WMD weapon arsenals start being used seriously. There is an immediate explosion that destroys civilization and contaminates much of the biosphere. The “High Cabal” (Winston’s Churchill’s name for that secretive group of financiers and loose cartels behind the several hundred interlocking corporations, etc. worldwide) wishes to remove about three-quarters of the population of the earth, as the “solution” to the “overpopulation” problem. They plan to escalate the energy crisis until it initiates the desired Armageddon for them. This plan has not changed since Bertrand Russell, one of their darlings because of his “logical positivism” (materialism by another name), made this astounding statement”

“At present the population of the world is increasing at about 58,000 per diem. War, so far, has had no very great effect on this increase, which continued throughout each of the world wars… War has hitherto been disappointing in this respect… but perhaps bacteriological war may prove effective. If a Black Death could spread through the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. The state of affairs might be unpleasant, but what of it?” [Bertrand Russell, philosophical spokesman for a group of Westerners, in his Impact of Science on Society.]

If you will refer to Laurie Garrett’s “The Nightmare of Bioterrorism,” Foreign Affairs, 80(1), Jan./Feb. 2001, on p. xx you will find the following quotation:

“Were a terrorist to disperse the smallpox virus, for example, populations that were once universally vaccinated would now be horribly vulnerable. Today the U.S. government stows only about 15.4 million doses of the smallpox vaccine-enough for less than seven percent of the American population. The World Health Organization (WHO) keeps another 500,000 doses in the Netherlands, and other national stockpiles total about 60 million more doses of varying quality and potency. If the smallpox virus were released today, the majority of the world’s population would be defenseless, and given the virus’ 30 percent kill rate, nearly two billion people would die.”

The Russians/KGB also are using other weapons to “thin” the immune systems of the population of targeted areas, so that the 30% kill rate rises to 50% or more. And Russian secret BW labs also perfected additional strains of smallpox — which were clandestinely sold to some nations not very nice at all, for terrorists’ use. These strains are invulnerable to all present smallpox vaccines.

What is being prepared worldwide is a “mix” of all sorts of weapons and attacks — everything from terrorists armed with incredibly developed pathogens and already inserted in various nations, etc. — worldwide. Every major nation is also already “seeded” with clandestine nuclear weapons placed in its large cities, ready to annihilate them. E.g., the highest ranking GRU defector to the U.S. is Lunev. In his book (passed by the CIA), Lunev even tells some of the ways that the Russians secretly brought such nuclear weapons into the United States, easily. Quoting Stanislov Lunev and Ira Winkler, Through the Eyes of the Enemy: Russia’s Highest Ranking Military Defector Reveals Why Russia Is More Dangerous Than Ever, Regnery, Washington, D.C., 1998, p. 22:

“Though most Americans don’t realize it, America is already penetrated by Russian military intelligence to the extent that arms caches lie in wait for use by Russian special forces – or Spetznatz.” Quoting p. 26:

Quoting p. 26:

“It is surprisingly easy to smuggle nuclear weapons into the United States. A commonly used method is for a Russian airplane to fly across the ocean on a typical reconnaissance flight. The planes will be tracked by U.S. radar, but that’s not a problem. When there are no other aircraft in visual range, the Russian airplane will launch a small, high-tech, stealth transport missile that can slip undetected into remote areas of the country. The missiles are retrieved by GRU operatives. Another way to get a weapon into the country is to have an ‘oceanographic research’ submarine deliver the device-accompanied by GRU specialists-to a remote section of coastline. Nuclear devices can also be slipped across the Mexican or Canadian borders. It is easy to get a bomb to Cuba and from there transport it to Mexico. Usually the devices are carried by a Russian intelligence officer or a trusted agent.”

Quoting p. 30:

“Other instruments of destruction the Russians have had success with are seismic weapons. Spitac and other small towns in the Transcaucasus Mountains were almost destroyed during a seismic weapons test that set off an earthquake. This would have obvious applications on America’s west coast and other areas of the world prone to earthquakes.”

As you can see from the latter quotation, Lunev was actually referring to the LWIs and their use to initiate earthquakes, precisely what Secretary Cohen confirmed in 1997. Again, the news media are completely asleep.

Those planning the self-destruction of civilization about 2007, also appear to have lots of help from the quarreling nations themselves. The nations of the earth are so beset by petty quarrels (Arab against Jew, Jew against Arab, Saddam Hussein thirsting to disrupt and control the MidEast and much of the oil supply, one group against another) and so blinded by these “local” bloodthirsty concerns and so intent on killing one another that they become willing pawns and tools for manipulation upon the grand chessboard, not even realizing they are serving the ends of hidden game-players manipulating them as silly pawns.

At any rate, as a single citizen without great resources, all I can do is point these things out, and also work intensively on trying to solve or partially solve the energy crisis. On this latter we have made excellent progress in the last 30 years. Our technical understanding now is such that well-funded research can quickly break out into production of self-powering electrical power systems, easily manufactured, to replace the present incredibly wasteful power systems which in effect have us all by the throat (as California has just shown). Make no mistake, the rising energy needs and oil needs in Asia alone will reach the level of the energy needs of today’s United States, about 7-10 years from now. The day of “cheap oil” is ended, and the world will never be the same again. The economic collapse is coming this decade, unless this energy crisis is quickly and permanently solved.

The same hidden folks engineering the destruction of civilization have also engineered its plundering during the interim period while Armageddon is being prepared by the nations themselves. The globulists successfully passed great treaties (such as NAFTA, GATT, etc.) which meant that the manufacturing jobs are now being exported to those “emerging” nations (read: cheap slave labor nations) where workers have no rights, there are no pollution laws, politicians are bought for a song, etc. It is almost a return to a special kind of feudalism. So some two trillion dollars per year are to be extracted off the backs of those poor nations (slave laborers), and from the oil, etc. At Kyoto, they successfully fooled the environmentalists (who are extraordinarily naive about science) and got exemption for 160 nations — the very nations being used to play a major role in extracting the two trillion dollars per year from the economy of the world.

But we have the answer to the energy crisis, and it can be solved forever, once any nation commits sufficient scientific resources to do the rest of the research and development. We are placing information on the solution on our website, http://www.cheniere.org, as fast as we can. We are also trying to obtain substantial financing to go into intensive research and development on our own inventions in this field. There are other inventions by other inventors and scientists that can also take and use energy from the vacuum, and we strongly hope that every legitimate researcher succeeds in getting units onto the world market and helping to solve the energy crisis in time.

The energy crisis part of it can be solved completely in two years, if we can get the conventional scientific community uprooted from its terrible fascination with a horrible old electrodynamics riddled with errors, that absolutely excludes and does not even model the active vacuum interaction with every system. Generators and batteries in fact do not power their attached circuits anyway, but just make dipoles. The dipole — as is very well-known in particle physics — extracts energy from the vacuum, transforms it into usable, real EM energy, and pours out that energy in all directions, freely and indefinitely so long as the dipole exists. So the real problem is in the terrible “mindset” of the energy scientists and engineers. But real production electrical power systems have to be rolling off the assembly lines en masse no later than first quarter 2004, in spite of that mindset, or it is all over for civilization anyway.

We will continue to do everything we can to assist in meeting that “point of no return” in first quarter 2004. If that deadline is missed, humanity goes right down the tube to its destruction. The MidEast, e.g., is on the very brink of war right now, and if it explodes, it will also involve all the developed nations, with WMD strikes occurring right in their large population centers. In the U.S., e.g., we could wake up one morning and have 20 million Americans dying of anthrax, smallpox, etc. right in the streets.

Meanwhile, some nations such as the KGB/Russia along with their Yakuza/Aum Shinrikyo protégés are maneuvering in the shadows, continually attempting to arrange a great strategic strike that will devastate the entire West and its allies. That continues; we have narrowly avoided such strikes several times since January 1997.

Only time will tell how it all comes out. Just now the good guys are not doing very well, content in a complacent electrodynamics science obsolete after 136 years, and the bad guys are very far ahead. We hope to see that change very rapidly.

Thanks for your interest, and I hope this sheds some light in answer to your question,

Obama Administration’s Use of Drones Responsible for Increase in Civilian Deaths

The Obama administration is ramping up its use of drone unmanned aircraft to execute targeted killings in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and perhaps in other locations – and, in the process, killing civilians along with insurgents, and risking the compromise of US moral imperatives and foreign policy goals.

That’s the view of a leading civil rights organization, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), calling on the president to lift the curtain of secrecy and level with the American people.

The ACLU is asking the government to release basic information about its use of drones to execute targeted killings. The group believes that “the use and proliferation of this tactic must be the subject of public scrutiny and debate.” The strikes are reportedly being carried out both by US military forces and the CIA.

The request is seeking information, including who may be targeted and the geographical limits on where drone strikes may occur. It wants information about the scope and consequences of drone strikes, including a breakdown of the total number of people killed, the civilian casualty toll, the number of people killed who were fighters with the Afghan Taliban or al-Qaeda in Afghanistan or who had some other terror-related affiliation or status.

“The public has been kept in the dark and is therefore unable to assess the wisdom or legality of the strikes,” the group claimed.

“The use of drones to conduct targeted killings raises complicated questions – not just legal questions but policy and moral questions as well. These are not questions that should be decided behind closed doors. They are questions that should be debated openly, and the public should have access to information that would allow it to participate meaningfully in the debate,” according to Jameel Jaffer, director of the ACLU’s National Security Project.

One of the unmanned vehicles, known as the Predator, is capable of flying for hours, armed or unarmed, remotely controlled by pilots who are stationed thousands of miles away. The Predator is part of a growing number of similar craft that includes the Reaper and Raven as well as a new, high-tech video sensor system called the Gorgon Stare, which is being installed on Reapers.

The ACLU charged that the Obama administration has stepped up the use of drones to target individuals not only in Afghanistan, but also in Pakistan and perhaps other countries that are not active theaters of war.

“The use of unmanned drones to target and kill individuals is a profoundly new way of waging war. For the first time, military and intelligence officers can observe, track, and launch missiles at targeted individuals from control centers located thousands of miles away, without any significant US presence on the ground. The technology also permits the United States to target individuals nearly anywhere in the world,” the organization claimed.

The number of civilian casualties caused by drone attacks varies from the dozens to the hundreds. Human rights organizations are particularly concerned that drones could be used to target criminal suspects rather than legitimate military targets. Criminal suspects should be arrested and tried in civilian courts, the ACLU contended, adding that failure to do so could amount to “unlawful extrajudicial killings.”

The ACLU also raised concerns about the wisdom of using drones on policy and moral grounds.

“We hope that the Obama administration will live up to its professed commitments to transparency and openness in government and release this essential information in a timely manner,” the group said.

The increasing use of drones by the US has drawn sharp criticism from President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and other high Pakistani officials.

Jonathan Manes, an ACLU attorney, told Truthout, “The Obama administration has stepped up the use of drones to target individuals not only in Afghanistan, but also in Pakistan, and that drones strikes might be authorized in other countries that are not active theaters of war.”

Pakistan said the strikes against suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban militants along its northwest violate its sovereignty. The attacks have resulted in serious anti-American feelings in Pakistan, which Washington sees as a critical ally in its war on extremism.

Gilani has told the press that drone attacks carried out on Pakistani soil were “counter-productive.” He said, “If the drone attacks had been useful, then we would have ourselves supported them.”

Gilani said the militants in the northwestern tribal areas bordering Afghanistan are strengthened by US missile strikes. “Our policy is to isolate militants from the local tribes, but drone attacks unite them,” he said.

His view was echoed by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who told Reuters that intensified US drone aircraft attacks against Islamist militants in Pakistan could endanger relations between the two allies.

But when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, she told a news conference the US was standing “shoulder to shoulder” with Pakistan in its military offensive. And the increased use of unmanned Predator drones is one of the highest profile ways the US is doing that.

The White House authorized an expansion of the CIA’s drone program in Pakistan’s tribal areas to parallel the president’s decision to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. The New York Times reported that American officials are talking with Pakistan about the possibility of striking in Baluchistan for the first time – “a controversial move since it is outside the tribal areas – because that is where Afghan Taliban leaders are believed to hide.”

US strategy for eliminating safe havens for militants in the region turns on increasing covert pressure on al-Qaeda and its allies in Pakistan, while ground forces attempt to reverse the Taliban’s advances in Afghanistan.

Investigative reporter Jane Mayer of The New Yorker magazine has revealed that the number of US drone strikes in Pakistan has risen dramatically under President Obama. During his first 9.5 months in office, Obama authorized at least 41 CIA missile strikes in Pakistan, a rate of approximately one bombing a week. President Bush sanctioned approximately the same number of attacks in his final three years in office.

The attacks have killed between 326 and 538 people, according to Mayer. She wrote, “there is no longer any doubt that targeted killing has become official US policy.”

One of the most high-profile critics of the US drone program has been the United Nations human rights envoy, Philip Alston, the UN’s special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary executions.

Alston told Amy Goodman of the Democracy Now! radio program that the US government’s use of Predator drones may violate international law. He also raised the issue in a report to the UN General Assembly’s Human Rights Committee and said the US should explain the legal basis for using unmanned drones for targeted killings.

In June, Alston presented a critical report on the drone program to the UN Human Rights Council, but he said US representatives ignored his concerns.

He said, “If you’re a Defense Department person, it’s a very attractive proposition. One can use the Predators without putting US servicemen in any harm. They are very effective. They can kill very significant numbers of people.”

But, he added, “The problem is that we have no real information on this program. What Jane Mayer exposed in her New Yorker piece is probably the most detailed information we have. She herself said that the CIA provides no information. It’s extraordinary that it’s the Central Intelligence Agency which is actually operating a missile program, which is actually deciding who to kill, when and where.”

Alston added, “There’s no accountability for it. There’s no indication of the rules that they use. So, I said before, there are rules, that it’s possible to justify a particular killing, but the CIA has never tried to do that. They have simply issued a general assurance: ‘No, no, everything’s fine. We really follow the rules, and we’re very careful.’ Well, if Israel or some other country that we’re scrutinizing says that, we say, ‘Sorry, guys, it’s not enough. We need to get the details’.”

Alston has called on the American government to make clear the details of the program; the legal basis, under US law, on which they are relying; the rules that they have put in place which govern the CIA actions, assuming there are rules; and what sort of accountability mechanisms they have. Do they review what they’ve done? They identify an individual. Often these identifications are very vague. But they say, “‘O.K., we’ve got X in our sights.’ Did they actually kill X? Did they kill someone else? How many other civilians did they kill? There’s never any accounting of that. And we need that sort of retrospective analysis, as well.”

He added that, in countries like Afghanistan and Iraq, “The United States has not done nearly enough, even today, to make sure that private military contractors do not carry out virtually all tasks, including, it seems, running a part of the drone program.”

But the drone program also has its fans. One of them is John Yoo, the former Office of Legal Counsel deputy who wrote the so-called “torture memos. ” Yoo appeared at the conservative American Enterprise Institute recently.

He said that in some areas, President Obama has gone beyond George W. Bush when it comes to the use of executive power. Yoo pointed toward the Obama administration’s increased use of predator drones overseas as an example.

“If we were still in peacetime, and this were the criminal justice system, police are not allowed to shoot missiles at people who might be criminals, might be about to commit a criminal act or might have committed a criminal act, even if we have a hard time finding and arresting them,” said Yoo. He added that in this area Obama has gone beyond Bush.

He said figuring out how to target terrorists is much more difficult because they do not wear uniforms or have territories. “It’s a complicated process that we had not had to think about before, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a war.”

Two leading US senators are also strong supporters of the drone program. They are Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona and Joe Lieberman, Independent of Connecticut. Their recent visit to Islamabad underscored tensions between the anti-terrorist allies caused by strikes unmanned aircraft strikes against suspected Taliban and al-Qaeda targets.

“Friends don’t always agree on every issue,” Senator . McCain said at a news conference in Islamabad, adding that the United States will “try to find common ground” with Pakistani leaders on the drone issue, but that “we have to do everything we feel is necessary to protect Americans from the attacks of terrorists who may be based here.”

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari asked the senators to seek a halt to the drone attacks. He said they are undermining domestic support for the war against Islamist militants and asked that the United States give Pakistan the technology to carry out such strikes on its own.

Following the December 30 suicide bombing at a US base in eastern Afghanistan that killed seven CIA officers and contractors, Washington has also increased its use of the controversial strikes near the Afghan border. Suspected US missiles killed four people and injured three in the latest raid on the North Waziristan tribal area. That was the sixth attack in the region in a week, the Associated Press reported. The AP quoted two Pakistani intelligence officials, who said a pair of missiles struck a house and a vehicle in a village near the town of Miran Shah. They did not identify the victims.

It is the civilian deaths that are giving US policymakers serious headaches. The strategy outlined by Gen. Stanley McChrystal – and supported by Obama with the deployment of 30,000 additional troops – centers on protecting the Afghan people. It is unclear how killing civilians with drone attacks furthers that goal.

In a related development, military observers have revealed – and their revelations have been confirmed by the US military – that a new, “stealthy” US drone, nicknamed “The Beast,” is operating out of Kandahar, Afghanistan.

But they question what it’s doing there. One military web site wrote, “Since the Taliban do not have radar, why deploy an expensive, stealthy drone when conventional models like the Predator and Reaper work so well? And what’s the point of having a high-level, strategic craft in that theater?”

It says the speculation is that The Beast may be carrying out missions outside of Afghanistan, with Iran and Pakistan both being possible candidates.

The Air Force has confirmed The Beast’s existence to Aviation Week magazine. “Officially, it’s an RQ-170 Sentinel, developed by Lockheed and flown by the flown by the 30th Reconnaissance Squadron at Tonopah Test Range in Nevada,” the magazine reported.

And, in something of an embarrassment for the US military, The New York Times reported that insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan have hacked into live video feeds from Predator drones, a key weapon in a Pentagon spy system that serves as the military’s eyes in the sky for surveillance and intelligence collection.

Though militants could see the video, The Times said there is no evidence they were able to jam the electronic signals from the unmanned aerial craft or take control of the vehicles, according to a senior defense official speaking on condition of anonymity.

Obtaining the video feeds can provide insurgents with critical information about what the military may be targeting, including buildings, roads and other facilities. The military has reportedly known about the vulnerability for more than a decade, but assumed adversaries would not be able to exploit it.

What are the Chances of a Nuclear War?

Posted by Admin on January 26, 2010

October 10, 2009

By Steve Beckow

Speaking at a Project Camelot Conference today in Brussels, George Green said that he saw a war with China in our near future.

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/2325758

How likely is a war with China?  For that matter, how likely is a war between any of the nuclear powers?

Let us ask that question of Mike Quinsey’s group, Sheldan Nidle’s Spiritual Hierarchy and Galactic Federation, and Matthew Ward, who are, in my opinion, our most credible sources.

SaLuSa is very certain about the matter: “There will be no nuclear war or that type of aggression.” (1)    He reports that the galactics “can easily [quiet] the guns of war if there is any need to do so.” (2)

He lets it be known that “we are in contact with your leaders, and they have been warned that certain conduct will not be allowed that seriously endangers you.” (3)

“Regardless of what threats are perceived, you will not be involved in a nuclear exchange or war. Your governments are aware of this edict from us, but still use such threats against each other. …

“There is talk of further wars but we assure you that it is no longer part of your future. We have informed your governments and military that nuclear weapons will not be allowed, and have proved we are as good as our word. We are here to lead you into a peaceful era that will allow for the restoration of your planet, and for a quantum leap forward into the Light.” (4)

Diane of Sirius assures us that the galactics are well “abreast of what is taking place, and have a total picture of the likely outcome of the impetus created by you. … We are ready to seize control on your behalf as soon as it is practical to do so and prevent any madcap actions by the dark as they contemplate defeat. We know exactly how they think and will curtail any attempts to prevent the Light from manifesting on your world.  (5)

Atmos tells us that the galactics have shielded the rest of the universe from our nuclear destructiveness:  “Nuclear weapons are an abomination that is so destructive, even to the point of damaging the souls of those in their path. Fortunately, in the past where you have let off nuclear devices, we have placed a protective shield around your Earth to prevent damage to the outer planets, and life forces in Space.” (6)

He tells us that the Galactic Federation has been protecting Earth for millennia against its own destructiveness:

“On more than one occasion, you were intending to bring about a nuclear war. … Your actions could have destroyed your Earth. We wish you to be aware that we have acted as your guardians for many thousands of years and you would not have been where you are now without our help, indeed you would not have reached this high point in evolution.” (7)

Ker-On of Venus offers us his guarantee that the galactics will protect us from ourselves:

“We shall ensure that there is no interference from the dark forces [in Ascension], as their power will have been removed from them. Already we curtail their ability to cause more wars and use their nuclear weapons and we know that it has been their objective in the Middle East.” (8)

Like Atmos, he assures us that the galactics have saved us from our own destructiveness:

“We follow your development and, since you entered the Nuclear Age, have come a lot closer. Our service to Humanity has been to make sure that you complete this cycle, and that both you and the Earth are not destroyed. You have come close to doing so on a number of occasions and we have prevented it. It is fortunate that the Divine Plan for you requires that you see this cycle out to the end, which is but a few years away. (9)

Unequivocably he tells us there will be no nuclear war:

“No matter what rhetoric passes between different countries that confront each other, we give an absolute assurance that there will not be another nuclear war. It will simply not be allowed, and soon the weapons of war shall be completely silenced forever. (10)

The Spiritual Hierarchy and Galactic Fderation (SHGF), speaking through Sheldan Nidle, say they “are confident that the need for a rapid deployment of our forces in response to some dark-induced craziness is unlikely. Until the mass landing date, we will need to intercede only when necessary to prevent nuclear disaster or stop events from getting out of hand. By this we mean an event that swiftly escalates into something serious.”  (11)

Speaking for the terrestrial and spiritual side, Matthew Ward tells us that stopping nuclear wars is the one area of human life where the 2012 team has Creator’s consent to intervene.

“Creator made this single exception to Its law that all souls’ free will must be honored: There will be no more nuclear wars, and spiritually evolved civilizations are authorized to use their technology to prevent any attempts to initiate one. That is why we have been able to repeatedly and confidently assure you that there will be no nuclear war on Earth.

So there is no possibility of planetary-wide destruction. (12)

In answer to “several issues that keep popping up in Internet articles or channeled messages,” Matthew assured us that “There will be no war with Iran … Russia will not engage in a major war and neither will China.”  (13)

On the basis of this, and insofar as this information is true, as I believe it to be, I think I can say unequivocally that George Green’s predictions of  a near-future war with China have no substance to them and no chance of materializing.

Namaste,

Steve

US Marines end role in Iraq

Long walk back home

By ADAM SCHRECK, Associated Press Writer.

RAMADI, Iraq – The U.S. Marine Corps wrapped up nearly seven years in Iraq on Saturday, handing over duties to the Army and signaling the beginning of an accelerated withdrawal of American troops as the U.S. turns its focus away from the waning Iraqi war to a growing one in Afghanistan.

In Baghdad, meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden held talks with Iraqi leaders amid rising tensions over plans to ban election candidates because of suspected links to Saddam Hussein’s regime.

The White House worries the bans could raise questions over the fairness of the March 7 parliamentary elections, which are seen as an important step in the American pullout timetable and breaking political stalemates over key issues such as dividing Iraq’s oil revenue.

The Marines formally handed over control of Sunni-dominated Anbar, Iraq’s largest province, to the Army during a ceremony at a base in Ramadi — where some of the fiercest fighting of the war took place.

Iraqi and American color guards stood together at attention as both countries’ national anthems were played by a U.S. military band.

Sharing the front row at the handover ceremony with American Army and Marine generals were some of Anbar’s influential tribal sheiks in traditional checkered headdresses and gold-embellished robes. Their decision to shift support to the Americans is credited with sapping the insurgency of much of its strength.

Maj. Gen. Terry Wolff, the Army commander who assumed responsibility for the province, said he hoped security gains cemented by U.S. troops and their Iraqi counterparts should ensure a smooth transfer despite the overall drawdown in American forces.

“The goal that we all seek is the Iraqis securing their own election, and that the election is fair and the election is free,” he told reporters after the handover. “It’s all based on the fact that the Iraqis, and particularly the Anbaris, can secure themselves. And that’s the encouraging aspect.”

If all goes as planned, the last remaining Marines will be followed out by tens of thousands of soldiers in the coming months. President Barack Obama has ordered all but 50,000 troops out of the country by Aug. 31, 2010, with most to depart after the March 7 parliamentary election.

The remaining troops will leave by the end of 2011 under a U.S.-Iraqi security pact.

But concerns about the success of the election — and perhaps the loss of hard won security gains that the Marines helped cement — are on the rise because of a growing political dispute that could see more than 500 candidates blacklisted because of suspected ties to previous regime.

The changeover at Ramadi, west of Baghdad, leaves the U.S. Army’s 1st Armored Division with responsibility over both Baghdad and Anbar, the vast desert province that stretches from western Baghdad to the borders ofSyria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

The province was once the heart of the deadly Sunni insurgency that erupted after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. In the battles for control of the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, the Marines saw some of the most brutal and deadliest fighting of the war.

Violence began dropping off in the province in late 2006 when Sunni fighters — known as Awakening Councils— turned against al-Qaida and sided with the Marines to fight the insurgency.

As many as 25,000 Marines were in Iraq at the peak, mostly in Anbar province. The few thousand who remain — except for U.S. Embassy guards and advisers in Baghdad — are expected to ship out in a matter of weeks.

The upcoming parliamentary election is also considered an important step toward speeding the U.S. troop pullout and seeking progress on stalled political initiatives. Among them: passing laws clarifying the rules for foreign oil investment and dividing the revenue among Iraq’s main groups.

But plans to ban hundreds of candidates have raised deep concerns in Washington that the voting could widen rifts between the majority Shiites who gained power after Saddam’s fall and Sunnis who are struggling to regain influence.

Biden, who arrived late Friday, had a full agenda of meetings with Iraqi leaders including Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who has strongly supported the blacklist and has resisted attempts at possible American mediation.

Some Sunni leaders have accused the Shiite-led government of using the ban as a political tool. But al-Maliki insists that Iraq must purge all ties to Saddam’s Sunni-dominated regime. A vetting panel has put 512 names on the blacklist and more are expected.

Iraqi government spokesman, Ali al-Dabbagh, told The Associated Press that al-Maliki’s meeting with Biden reinforced the stance that the election rules are “an Iraqi affair to be decided by the Iraqis themselves.”

Al-Dabbagh said Biden was careful not to “give the wrong message that America wants to interfere in the Iraqi affairs.”

There was no immediate word from Biden or his aides on the talks.

Biden’s schedule also includes a meeting with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, who has asked for a legal review on the blacklist. The courts are expected to examine whether the vetting panel has legal grounding because it does not have formal parliamentary approval.

The panel includes two controversial Shiite figures: Ali al-Lami, who was once detained by the U.S. militaryover a 2008 attack in a Shiite district of Baghdad; and Ahmed Chalabi, who is blamed for supplying U.S. officials with faulty intelligence on Saddam’s weapons program prior to the 2003 invasion.

Al-Lami is also a candidate in the March elections — raising further complaints from Sunnis about possible political motives behind the list.
