A New America

Gracchus writes: I am a career employee of the federal government in Washington, D.C. For most of the last 30 years, I have worked in offices within two miles of the nation's great landmarks: the Washington Monument, the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the Smithsonian Institution, the White House, and the Capitol. Just across the Potomac River is the Pentagon.

Today, America is in crisis. The outcome is unknown. The danger is great. But the nature of the crisis is different from what our political leaders have said, and so is the solution. I am going to describe conditions as I see them, and I am going to speak with a certain degree of authority. So please hear, and try to understand me. The first thing I want to say is that I can understand why so many Americans believe the federal government is no good, given its frequent bad behavior in recent decades, especially in its relations with other nations. But our nation is a republic. We elect our leaders, so we must share responsibility for what they have done or not done. And our nation was founded on highly idealistic principles. Read the Declaration of Independence again, as well as the Preamble to the Constitution and Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

Murder, They Wrote

February 23, 2003

During the past few days, there have been six ritual murders all over the world. Most of them are being billed as accidents, emotional disturbances, or politically motivated. They are as follows:

Missouri: Nan Wyatt, the host of a top St. Louis radio show on KMOX was shot to death by her husband who was upset over a possible divorce. The name, “Nan,” is a programming code name for deception, or making a true story false. KMOX is also promoting that people who remember being abused by priests have false memories.

Pakistan: A Fokker-27 turboprop of the military crashed in dense fog, killing seventeen, including the chief of the Air Force. This will come in handy when the NWO attacks Pakistan.

Iran: A military plane with 302 passengers crashed in bad weather in a remote area of the country. All on board were members of the Revolutionary Guard whose job it is to safeguard the Islamic Revolution of Iran. Without them, the country will be less dependable in a war.

Saudi Arabia: A British defense contractor was shot to death as he waited at a stoplight on a busy street. His last name, “Dent,” is a trigger word in programming.

Chicago: A fire at a nightclub killed almost two dozen people. The club’s name was “Epitome.” This is a trigger word designed to activate sleepers who are to perform an important function to complete a goal.

Rhode Island: Almost 100 people so far have died as a result of another night club fire. The event took place in “West Warwick.” The band was named “Great White,” and the song they were playing was “Desert Moon.” The club’s name was “The Station.’ All of these names and terms have direct Reptilian references, and are also used to trigger sleepers. Since this was the second fire, there will be a third night club fire somewhere.

Illness & Death Tidbits

March 2, 2003

• Colombia: still dropping like flies in this country. An army helicopter crashed while on a secret mission (again), killing all 23 aboard.

• Florida: This Governor Bush state executed its 55th (twinning) killer this week. Amos King (biblical connotations) maintained his innocence until the very end.

• Atlanta: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, announced that 25 people who received the smallpox vaccine so far have suffered bad reactions. One had a severe body rash, another had a heart attack. The rest had milder reactions including fever, fatigue, redness, and swelling. Sounds like fun.

• Washington, D.C.—In light of recent deaths and illness, the FDA is considering banning the herb, ephedra, since it can cause heart attacks and strokes., Because it is an herb, no government oversight is present—yet. These deaths are a “reason” for the government to regulate the sale of all herbs.

Indict the Council on Foreign Relations

Mike Schelstrate writes: As many of us are undoubtedly aware, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is in control of the shadow government that is actually running our country. Their membership includes many of the elite of American government, financial, and educational institutions. The CFR’s complete control over the domestic and foreign policy of America being unquestionable, this organization needs to be confronted with the spectacular list of failures of their policy since they took over our government. With power comes responsibility. There is sufficient evidence today to proceed with impeachment procedures against this illegal ruling body. This organization should be disbanded, and all of its members charged with treason! Maybe we should propose that the members be brought up before one of their “achievements”, the new International Criminal Court.

Sen. Joe Lieberman Erases Ties to Apocalyptic Fundamentalist Group

Excerpt: With his eyes firmly fixed on the White House, Senator Joseph Lieberman is making moves to whitewash his religious record. Specifically, "Holy Joe" (as he's sometimes called) is trying to erase his association the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, an organization that tries to get fundamentalist Christians to support Israel, especially the emigration of Jews in the former Soviet Union to Israel.

If you haven't been paying attention lately, fundie Christians are growing ever more supportive of Israel, since the creation of that country and the return of Jews to it are two of the big steps on the way to the joys of Armageddon, the Apocalypse, the Rapture, etc., etc. The Fellowship plays on these beliefs by constantly invoking "biblical prophecy," conveniently forgetting that in the End Times scenario, Jews must either convert to Christianity or roast in hell forever.

HAARP AND SPACESHIP COLUMBIA
-- THAT COLD SATURDAY MORNING

What happened to the Columbia Space Shuttle and why NASA is mis-leading the public with easily hoaxed information.

A Scientific Explanation

The partly-university and partly-military HAARP facility has very lax security, as shown by the pictures and text on their own website. It is only just a very large shortwave radio transmitter in Gakona, Alaska used for university research, isn't it? That's what they say.

For several years, beginning about 1998, HAARP is normally turned on during the summer months, starting several hours before midnight. They are doing atmospheric auroral zone research for several hours each night when the sky is very dark, during that part of the month when the bright moon is below the horizon. That is the "University Research" mode. The shortwave transmitter pulses may have both long and short pulses with about equal-length spaces in between, and the pulse lengths may vary, depending on the academic research experiment, from 3 to 30 seconds.

During the "Navy Deep-Sea Communication" operational mode, the shortwave radio pulses are all, with military precision, exactly 6.25 seconds long with either exactly 15 or 30 second spaces between pulses. Those long and short binary spaces in between the pulses are actually the coded message. Something like the dits and dahs of very slow Morse code. In this mode, the power is usually at maximum. Unlike the research mode, which mostly runs at night, the US Navy communication mode can be at any time of the day or night, any month of the year. The transmissions may run continuously for about 10 to 30 hours, or from one to several days.

These communication pulses interact with the earth's magnetic field near the northern auroral zone. These very slow interactions, taking hours to send a short message, can be sensed by special magnetometer receivers in the US nuclear submarines miles deep below the ocean surface. This HAARP communication mode can operate far deeper into the ocean than any other nation can penetrate, so only US submarines are capable of long-term full-stealth mode, out of reach far below all other nation's submarines. All the while, still staying in communication with US Navy command headquarters.

Following the 9-11 World Trade Center attack, and just minutes after the President declared the highest Defense Condition Four (DefCon4), HAARP began transmitting at highest power for 18 hours in "deep-sea communication" mode. This is the only way to communicate the DefCon4 condition and updated battle commands to the US nuclear submarines on station miles deep in the ocean.

The "Air Force Missile Defense Shield" mode is usually heard as 4 or 5 second pulses about 20 seconds apart. The pulses also are modulated with circular polarization, changing in tone slightly faster or slower than the 1 Hz base frequency. This results in hearing sounds, which I call repeated "zooo-eep" sounds going upward or "zaah-oownd" sounds going downward. This causes very fast relativistic electrons or ions to be sprayed into outer space arcing from north to south magnetic pole, from the ionosphere, either upward to the magnetosphere, or downward from the magnetosphere to the ionosphere.

These particles, moving at nearly the speed of light, stay only in the vacuum of space and are stopped whenever they hit the atmosphere. The focused fast moving particles can penetrate and damage the electronics of an incoming nuclear missile warhead and cause the missile to spin out of control and burn up as it re-enters the earth's atmosphere.

The damage effect is similar to the strong radiation from a nearby nuclear explosion. Thus the "missile shield" mode can quickly destroy incoming missiles almost anywhere in the world even before they re-enter the atmosphere. The graduate student technical research reports on the HAARP website for the summer study programs of 1999 and 2000 reveal they have succeeded in producing particle flow along "certain magnetic field lines." This is a secretive or obtuse way of saying that they have finally implemented a "focused missile defense shield" mode.

The staffers at HAARP are several full time professional radio electronics operators and a number of part-time professors and graduate research students. They all have access to the facility which is the key to the back door of the small cafeteria/control room building. The HAARP facility does not even have a fence around it.

CAUTION: What follows contains speculative material.

One of the HAARP graduate students, Mustava Grufti, gets up in the middle of the night, and goes to work all by himself at 4:00 AM on a very cold Saturday Alaska winter morning. They usually don't work on the weekends, especially not in the frigid mid-winter. He turns on the cold diesel generators which produce the electrical power for the large radio system and starts up the transmitters. He plugs into the transmitter control computer the old research program he had worked on for testing the Air Force missile shield mode.

This fires a narrow cloud of relativistic particles into space from Alaska, above the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean along the western coast of the US, to the opposite magnetic mirror site just above the southern auroral zone near New Zealand. He leaves the transmitter running for 3 hours. Then, Mustava turns everything off and goes back home to sleep, in the dark of the long Alaska arctic-winter night. It was a very cold Saturday morning.

The University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where Mustava is a research associate assigned to the HAARP project, knows that he is in the US on a temporary F1 student visa from Pakistan. They do not know that he also is a member of Al-Qaida. Mustava was only told to turn on the transmitter to knock out a bothersome US communication satellite which had been broadcasting anti-Muslim TV programs and propaganda. Mustava doesn't follow the news and knows nothing about any space shuttle flight. He was only told the time and direction to transmit. It was 4:15 AM PST Saturday morning, Feb 1, 2003, just about 90 minutes before Columbia enters the atmosphere over California. Mustava, knowing he might be doing something wrong, makes no entry into the HAARP transmitter logbook.

Later, the US Navy, which administrates all HAARP operations, when asked about HAARP possibly transmitting while shuttle Columbia was landing, only says, "It wasn't us. We weren't even on the air." They check their logbook and show proof: there is no record of any HAARP transmissions on Feb 1, 2003.

(Note: I have been monitoring and logging all HAARP transmissions since the year 2000. HAARP was, in fact, transmitting from 4:15 AM to about 7:20 AM PST in missile defense mode on Saturday Feb 1, 2003. That was the first HAARP transmission since late 2002. Columbia re-entered the atmosphere over California at 5:53 AM PST, exactly in the middle between those two times.)

It's a cold Saturday morning over the dark Indian Ocean as Columbia fires its rockets to drop from orbit and begin its path into the atmosphere over California. About 5:40 AM, over the eastern Pacific Ocean nearing California, while still in space, Columbia enters into an invisible cloud of extremely high radiation spewing southward from Gakona, Alaska. The cloud of relativistic electrons penetrate deeply into Columbia, instantly causing strange heating on the northern or left side of the spacecraft toward Alaska, both on the left wing and even on the upper left side of the craft near the left cargo bay door. Because the radiation cloud is coming from the northern side, not from below, only the left side of Columbia is seriously affected at first.

Columbia's commander reports the anomalous low-level gradual heating of all temperature sensors on the left side of the craft to the NASA ground communicator. The NASA communicator acknowledges that they received the messages about the heating on the left side. And Commander Rick Husband, responds, "Roger, bu..."

Suddenly his voice and all radio communications with the shuttle are broken off in mid-sentence. The cloud of radiation shooting from Alaska continues to penetrate into Columbia. Over central California, numerous left wing temperature sensors all suddenly stop working. Just before they failed, the semiconductor temperature sensors did not show extreme high temperature or indicate burning up. They all suddenly went off-scale as if high radiation had simply shorted them out.

Minutes later, somewhere over Nevada, now safely below the radiation cloud above the atmosphere, the effects of the short but severe radiation exposure are now becoming apparent. The attitude control computer, which positions the spacecraft to glide like an airplane to a safe landing, starts showing signs of over-correcting. The control computer and its backup can no longer calculate a proper flight path. The data in the computer memories was corrupted by the severe radiation and Columbia begins to wander erratically left and right beyond its normal range.

Over northern Arizona, the effects of the radiation damage are now enormous, as Columbia seems to be following some mythical computerized flight path made up only from bad data bits. Then all data links are cut off, and most all on-board electronic devices cease to function. The spacecraft begins to slowly tumble and twist end-over-end out of control. Over eastern New Mexico, Columbia is no longer soaring as a glider to a welcomed soft landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It is morphing into a flaming meteoric, billion-dollar fireball, streaking ever swiftly downward toward destiny in east Texas with seven human beings inside.

Later, based on the US Navy assurances, NASA closes any investigation into possible HAARP-Shuttle interactions. Investigators continue to pursue numerous other possible theories, such as damage to the shuttle heat shield tiles during take off. Or possibly even some pieces of the shuttle or tiles reportedly falling off over California, or strange electrical discharges around the shuttle as it enters the atmosphere -- something some California observers reported. But that was something no one could have ever observed, since, according to NOAA weather satellite images at that exact time, most all of California and Nevada were covered with thick cloud cover at 5:53 AM just as Columbia passed overhead. No California observations, videos or photographs were possible.

Other groups investigate the possible impact of newly discovered extremely high altitude air turbulence, which may have damaged the 23-year-old airframe of the aging Columbia as it entered the atmosphere. The investigative results are inconclusive or misleading. Nothing is resolved. The Shuttle program is shut down for over a year, because of the unclear results and the loud public clamor to cease the dangerous and costly NASA shuttle missions. American concerns about the ongoing hot war on terrorism now predominate the evening news. Columbia is forgotten.

Without NASA Space Shuttle support, the two astronauts and lone cosmonaut on the International Space Station are brought down in June 2003, using the Russian space lifeboat landing craft. No replacement personnel are sent up to relieve them. The International Space Station is left abandoned in its partial shutdown remote-control mode. The ISS was built under control of the US military and still has several operational space monitoring and weapons guidance systems, but all are now under remote control.

And who are the remote controllers? They are in both the Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National labs, Space Weapons Systems divisions.

These two groups are comprised primarily of Chinese nationals, also in the US as graduate students on F1 or H1B temporary visas to study at the University of California at Berkeley. Based on the post-Cold War "Immigration Act of 1991", beginning in the early 1990's, tens of thousands of Chinese college students entered the US on temporary visas. From 1991 to 1996 the number of Asian engineering students, mostly Chinese and Pakistani, in all of California's engineering colleges had grown from 2 percent to well over 35 percent.

From the year 2000 US census data, and University of California annual reports, by the year 2000, Asian students predominated in all California engineering and computer science colleges. Many thousands become students at Berkeley and later become research assistants at both Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos Labs. Both of the national labs had been operated for the US government by UC Berkeley since World War II.

Using post-Cold War thinking, similar to the 1985 "Glasnost" or USSR "openess" program, the Clinton Administration in 1993 relaxed all the costly security requirements at the top secret labs. There are now no security background checks, no picture badges, no sign-in books, no security guards at the doors or gate. The labs have been wide open for 10 years. Many of the employees at the top secret national labs are foreign nationals with temporary visas or even no visa at all.

It was early one cold Saturday morning when all regular radio and TV programming on every station and satellite channel stopped and was replaced with a continuously repeating Emergency Alert System message,

"This is People's Republic of China. Under international law we declare for the safety and well being of all peoples of the world, we are now control all weapon system. We are control of the International Space Station and all international facility. We can and will destroy and eliminate all dangerous weapon or missiles system. No weapon or resistance to the peaceful order of all peoples of the world will be allowed."

Simultaneously, the two million recently immigrated young Chinese already in America, who had entered the US, since 1993, either illegally or on F1 or H1B visas, put on their Army of the PRC uniforms. On that cold Saturday morning, the two million seem to suddenly appear out of nowhere in every city and town throughout the United States. In the US, most American military personnel are not to be seen. America had been mistakenly convinced to send most all of its US fighting men and military resources to fight an increasingly difficult "two war scenario" in Iraq and North Korea in a war against terrorism.

The uniformed Chinese are armed with Chinese-made AK47 automatic rifles which had been for years shipped into the US during the 1990's in unmarked and uninspected shipping containers into Long Beach and Oakland harbors. The weapons and uniforms had been stored in the hundreds of import/export company warehouses throughout the US that normally distribute Chinese-made consumer goods sold at WalMart.

Worldwide, not just one, but a whole series of similar simultaneous internet worms and trojans are unleashed. The worms attack the internet DNS system and the American telephone system. All internet and telephone communication ceases. Without any personal communication or connection to the outside world the Americans quickly become frightened sheep ready for herding.

On that cold Saturday morning, the now frightened and terrified US populace is panicked. What is happening? Who is in charge? What is being done? What will become of us? No answers come from any radio or TV, only the repeating Emergency Alert message. When ordered, the confused and leaderless American citizens, both old and young, male and female, are quietly rounded up from their homes by the 2 million armed Chinese soldiers. Soldiers who had already been in place, instructed and drilled, since early 2000. Within days most of the cities and towns of America are emptied. Without even firing a shot, tens of millions, then hundreds of millions of frightened Americans are collected into mass resettlement camps, and...and...

...And to think it all started because somebody forgot to securely padlock the back door at HAARP as spaceship Columbia made its final descent.

The scary part is that most of this has already happened. While Congress sleeps, Americans can now only await the coming of that cold Saturday morning.

Star Wars (USSPACECOM), A Trojan Horse

Pat Bennett writes: By now most of us are at least vaguely familiar with the "new" Star Wars program promoted by U.S. President George W. Bush. The CBC National did an exceptionally exposing documentary on this new American National Missile Defense (NMD) plan, during which it was made clear to viewers that much of this space system is now in place.

Regardless of heated controversy, and objections from many nations around the world, Bush intends to continue with this madness. He does not care that continuing with it will induce another arms race; he feels that space is the warfighter's edge, and the U.S. intends to keep that edge. "Full spectrum dominance" is his vision for the U.S. in the future, as stated in the document "U.S. Space Command Vision for 2020."
