COMMENT: In a pre­vi­ous post, we explored an emphat­i­cal­ly hypo­thet­i­cal line of inquiry con­cern­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Ger­many may be active­ly desta­bi­liz­ing Asia. 

In anoth­er emphat­i­cal­ly hypo­thet­i­cal analy­sis, we revis­it infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in the late 1990’s and ear­ly 2001, as Okla­homans begin to pick up the pieces after the recent dev­as­tat­ing twister.

A report from Munich Re in late 2012 caught our eye. (Munich Re is a major Ger­man insur­er and, as such, invari­ably part of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, which con­trols “cor­po­rate Ger­many.” It is the largest rein­sur­ance firm in the world.)

Munich Re was pre­dict­ing an accel­er­at­ing sever­i­ty of dis­as­trous storm in North Amer­i­ca, due to the effects of glob­al warm­ing. Of course, such a devel­op­ment would increase over­head for insur­ers in the U.S., thus weak­en­ing the Amer­i­can econ­o­my. As high­light­ed below, it would also place addi­tion­al strain on the U.S. bud­get.

Sev­er­al things come to mind in this con­text:

  •  In our dis­cus­sions with Nick Begich, co-author of Angels Don’t Play this HAARP, we cov­ered the appli­ca­tions of this RMA–rev­o­lu­tion in mil­i­tary affairs. In addi­tion to mis­sile defense and pos­si­ble mind con­trol appli­ca­tions, the sys­tem would have appli­ca­tions to seis­mic war­fare. The patents for the tech­nol­o­gy specif­i­cal­ly have stat­ed appli­ca­tions to weath­er mod­i­fi­ca­tion. (We note in pass­ing, that Mr. Begich’s asso­ciate and lit­er­ary col­lab­o­ra­tor Gael Flan­na­gan died under sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances.)
  • In FTR #69 (the descrip­tion for which is excerpt­ed below), we read into the record a state­ment at a [4/28/1997] press con­fer­ence by then Sec­re­tary of Defense William Cohen that ter­ror­ist nations were seek­ing means of using elec­tro­mag­net­ic radi­a­tion to cause earth­quakes and oth­er envi­ron­men­tal cat­a­stro­phes. 
  • In that same pro­gram, we read into the record the text of a treaty between the Unit­ed States and the for­mer Sovi­et Union ban­ning envi­ron­men­tal mod­i­fi­ca­tion for mil­i­tary pur­pos­es. (The treaty dates to the admin­is­tra­tion of Jim­my Carter [1976–1980]). The events that might have mil­i­tary appli­ca­tions includ­ed earth­quakes, tsunamis, tor­na­does and oth­er weath­er events. Lis­ten to side 1 of the broad­cast here. Side 2 high­lights Niko­la Tes­la’s cre­ation of an earth­quake in New York City in the late 19th cen­tu­ry. Again, con­tem­plate the advances in mil­i­tary R & D since the late 19th cen­tu­ry!
  • In FTR #272 (the descrip­tion of which is also excerpt­ed below), we high­light­ed a Euro­pean (read “Ger­man”) Space Agency project to neu­tral­ize tor­na­does using microwave tech­nol­o­gy. Lis­ten to the pro­gram here.
  • In the years since that ear­ly 2001 broad­cast, it devel­ops that the “Ben” East­lund, hired by the Euro­pean (read “Ger­man”) Space Agency to manip­u­late tor­na­does is indeed the same Bernard East­lund who presided over the HAARP project, as high­light­ed in the excerpt­ed arti­cle below. Note the pre­dictably snide tone of the Busi­ness Week arti­cle, pooh-poohing the notion that such tech­nol­o­gy might have weath­er-manip­u­la­tion appli­ca­tions. The rel­e­vant patents state that they have such poten­tial uses. East­lund was specif­i­cal­ly hired by the Euro­pean (read “Ger­man”) Space Agency to mod­i­fy weath­er phe­nom­e­na!!
  • Sum­ming up: in ear­ly 2001 the Euro­pean (read “Ger­man”) Space Agency hired the cre­ator of HAARP to study ways to use microwaves to neu­tral­ize a weath­er phenomenon–tornadoes–that are all but non-exis­tent in Europe! Rough­ly 90 per­cent of all tor­na­does occur in–TA DA–North Amer­i­ca! 
  • QUICK: when was the last time you heard of a tor­na­do in Europe?
  • We won­der if the Euro­pean [read “Ger­man”] Space Agency might com­mis­sion East­lund to study ways of using space-based microwave tech­nol­o­gy to make open con­tain­ers of olive oil at fine Euro­pean restau­rants “hygien­ic”!
  • Also in FTR #272, we exam­ined the charges by crit­ics that such tech­nol­o­gy might very well make tor­na­does worse!
  • One won­ders if the tor­na­do-neu­tral­iza­tion tech­nol­o­gy might actu­al­ly be a Euro­pean (read “Ger­man”) HAARP project?
  • Glob­al warm­ing notwith­stand­ing, it is imper­a­tive to under­stand that such things are absolute­ly pos­si­ble. The U.S./U.S.S.R. treaty was con­clud­ed more than thir­ty years ago. The Wright broth­ers flew in 1911. By 1941, the Bat­tle of Britain was his­to­ry and the attack on Pearl Har­bor became a real­i­ty. It has been twelve years since the Euro­pean (read “Ger­man”) Space Agency project was under­tak­en. Again, the Wright broth­ers flew in 1911. By 1923, the first air­craft car­ri­ers were being devel­oped.
  • How far might the tor­na­do-neu­tral­iza­tion project have evolved in the twelve years since its incep­tion? 
  • Dis­as­ter-relief costs mon­ey, bring­ing into play the German/GOP “aus­ter­i­ty” dynam­ic.
  • The Naz­i­fied GOP is attempt­ing to hold dis­as­ter relief for the tor­na­do vic­tims in Okla­homa hostage to–you guessed it–budget cuts.
  • IF, in fact, our fears con­cern­ing the dynam­ic out­lined here are cor­rect, the Unit­ed States is, lit­er­al­ly, under attack. IF in fact, our fears are valid, the Unit­ed States is in a state of war with Ger­many and the Under­ground Reich.
  • In this same con­text, one also won­ders about the Fukushi­ma mega-earth­quake, which irra­di­at­ed much of the Pacif­ic Rim and the ocean. Should the clean-up of Fukushima–now pro­ject­ed to take more than 40 years–fail, and should the #4 reac­tor and the pool of spent rods (col­lect­ed from all over the world) fail, say good­by to Japan, much of Asia, and the West Coast of the U.S. With the U.S. hav­ing “piv­ot­ed to Asia,” as dis­cussed in our hypo­thet­i­cal post about Ger­many desta­bi­liz­ing Asia, that is some­thing the Under­ground Reich would do. NEVER under­es­ti­mate what the Reich might attempt. NEVER fail to under­stand that the Third Reich went under­ground. It did NOT dis­ap­pear.
  • Note also, that a sig­nif­i­cant increase in weath­er and/or seis­mic dis­as­ters in North Amer­i­ca will increase the cost of insur­ance, there­by dri­ving up over­head for com­mer­cial and civic instal­la­tions. Insurers–such as Munich Re and Allianz would be the ben­e­fi­cia­ries.

“Report: Cli­mate Change Behind Rise in Weath­er Dis­as­ters” by Doyle S. Rice; USA Today; 10/10/2012.

EXCERPT: The num­ber of nat­ur­al dis­as­ters per year has been ris­ing dra­mat­i­cal­ly on all con­ti­nents since 1980, but the trend is steep­est for North Amer­i­ca where coun­tries have been bat­tered by hur­ri­canes, tor­na­does, floods, sear­ing heat and drought, a new report says.

The study being released today by Munich Re, the world’s largest rein­sur­ance firm, sees cli­mate change dri­ving the increase and pre­dicts those influ­ences will con­tin­ue in years ahead, though a num­ber of experts ques­tion that con­clu­sion.

What­ev­er the caus­es, the report shows that if you thought the weath­er has been get­ting worse, you’re right.

The report finds that weath­er dis­as­ters in North Amer­i­ca are among the worst and most volatile in the world: “North Amer­i­ca is the con­ti­nent with the largest increas­es in dis­as­ters,” says Munich Re’s Peter Hoppe.

The report focus­es on weath­er dis­as­ters since 1980 in the USA, Cana­da, Puer­to Rico and the U.S. Vir­gin Islands.

Hoppe says this report rep­re­sents the first find­ing of a cli­mate change “foot­print” in the data from nat­ur­al cat­a­stro­phes.
Some of the report’s find­ings:

– The inten­si­ties of cer­tain weath­er events in North Amer­i­ca are among the high­est in the world, and the risks asso­ci­at­ed with them are chang­ing faster than any­where else.

– The sec­ond costli­est year of the study peri­od, 2011, was dom­i­nat­ed by strong storms. Insured loss­es in the U.S. due to thun­der­storms alone was the high­est on record at an esti­mat­ed $26 bil­lion, more than dou­ble the pre­vi­ous thun­der­storm record set in 2010. . . .

“Who Con­trols the Weath­er?”; Bloomberg­Busi­ness­Week; 10/19/2005.

EXCERPT: . . . .In fact, a decade before the “Own­ing the Weath­er” report was writ­ten, that sort of mis­sile shield had been out­lined by U.S. researcher Bernard “Ben” East­lund, pres­i­dent of East­lund Sci­en­tif­ic Enter­pris­es in San Diego. What spooked civil­ian con­spir­a­cy campers was that the Pen­ta­gon in 1995 began oper­at­ing what appeared to be a pro­to­type of East­lund’s mis­sile-shield sys­tem.

Innocu­ous­ly called the High-Fre­quen­cy Active Auro­ral Research Pro­gram, or HAARP, it had nowhere near the pow­er that a mis­sile shield would need. But the weath­er-con­spir­a­cy wor­ri­ers fret­ted that HAARP was being used, or would be, to test poten­tial­ly hos­tile weath­er-mod­i­fi­ca­tion schemes. . . .

“Oba­ma Pledges Storm Aid; Some in Con­gress Talk of Find­ing Cuts to Off­set It” by  Peter Bak­er and Jere­my W. Peters; The New York Times; 5/21/2013.

EXCERPT: Promis­ing to pro­vide Okla­homa “every­thing that it needs right away,” Mr. Oba­ma dis­patched W. Craig Fugate, direc­tor of the Fed­er­al Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency, to coor­di­nate recov­ery efforts. Janet Napoli­tano, the sec­re­tary of home­land secu­ri­ty, is to fol­low Mr. Fugate to Okla­homa on Wednes­day.

But although polit­i­cal lead­ers of both par­ties expressed sym­pa­thy for the vic­tims, it took only hours for Wash­ing­ton to face off over the pos­si­ble cost of repair­ing the dev­as­ta­tion and how it would be paid. For the moment, it was a strict­ly hypo­thet­i­cal debate, since the gov­ern­ment already has $11.6 bil­lion avail­able in a dis­as­ter relief fund. But it under­scored the fact that even nation­al tragedy does not always bring the cap­i­tal togeth­er.

An Okla­homa sen­a­tor, Tom Coburn, a Repub­li­can who is one of the most relent­less bud­get hawks in Con­gress, kicked off the touchy dis­pute by say­ing that any addi­tion­al dis­as­ter relief appro­pri­at­ed by Con­gress would have to be paid for by cut­ting oth­er areas of the fed­er­al bud­get.

Some Repub­li­cans rushed to his defense, with Sen­a­tor Ron John­son of Wis­con­sin say­ing Mr. Coburn’s actions demon­strat­ed “real lead­er­ship.”

But oth­ers said they were appalled. “I think we need to all act like Amer­i­cans, that we’re all in it togeth­er, neigh­bor help­ing neigh­bor,” said Sen­a­tor Bar­bara A. Mikul­s­ki, the Mary­land Demo­c­rat who is chair­woman of the Appro­pri­a­tions Com­mit­tee. “This is not the time for bud­geteer­ing bat­tles. This is the time to respond with com­pas­sion and com­pe­tence.” . . .

. . . . Ear­ly last win­ter, Repub­li­cans repeat­ed­ly tried to kill a bill to pro­vide relief for states rav­aged by Hur­ri­cane Sandy. They claimed it had been unnec­es­sar­i­ly loaded with excess spend­ing. Ulti­mate­ly the bill passed, but only after Speak­er John A. Boehn­er agreed to allow the leg­is­la­tion onto the House floor even though a major­i­ty of his Repub­li­can con­fer­ence had vowed to vote against it and did.

As with any action in Con­gress these days, ques­tions of fur­ther aid for the Okla­homa vic­tims will quite like­ly boil down to cost. . . .

Descrip­tion for FTR #69 [7/2/1997]: Even MORE Fun with Sci­ence: Earth­quake Weapon­ry

Dur­ing World War II, Win­ston Churchill observed that, in wartime, truth is so pre­cious that it should, at all times, be attend­ed by “a body­guard of lies.” For decades, the Unit­ed States and U.S.S.R. researched the pos­si­bil­ity of manip­u­lat­ing nat­ural dis­as­ters, includ­ing earth­quakes, as weapons of mass destruc­tion. This type of weapon­ry was the focus of a treaty between the two super­pow­ers nego­ti­ated in the late 1970s. Yet, despite a grow­ing body of evi­dence that seis­mic weapon­ry may very well be a fact of life in the late 1990s, offi­cial­dom con­tin­ues to down­play that omi­nous pos­si­bil­ity. This pro­gram explores that evi­dence. In addi­tion to exam­in­ing evi­dence of the exis­tence of seis­mic weapons and/or research into such weapons, the seg­ments high­light the research of Niko­la Tes­la, who used mechan­i­cal res­o­nance to cause a small earth­quake in New York City in 1896! After dis­cus­sion of a press con­fer­ence giv­en on April 28, 1997 by Defense Sec­re­tary William S. Cohen, in which he says that “ter­ror­ist nations” are cur­rently devel­op­ing means of trig­ger­ing earth­quakes, vol­canic erup­tions and dis­as­trous weath­er events, the pro­gram reviews some of the his­tory of the Cold War research and devel­op­ment of seis­mic weapons. The broad­cast also touch­es on the Japan­ese Aum Shinrikyo’s attempt to use Tesla’s dis­cov­er­ies to devel­op tec­tonic weapons and their pro­fessed belief that the Kobe earth­quake was caused by the Unit­ed States.

Descrip­tion  for FTR #272: [1/26/2001] ”  . . . They Shall Reap the Whirl­wind”

EXCERPT:  Dur­ing Jim­my Carter’s admin­is­tra­tion, a treaty was rat­i­fied by the U.S. and for­mer U.S.S.R. ban­ning the manip­u­la­tion of envi­ron­men­tal dis­as­ters for mil­i­tary pur­poses. Cov­er­ing earth­quakes, tsunamis, tor­na­does and oth­er weath­er events, the agree­ment was real­ized in order to pre­vent the devel­op­ment and use of a tru­ly insid­i­ous gen­er­a­tion of WMD’s. In inter­views with Dr. Nick Begich, co-author (with Jeanne Man­ning) of Angels Don’t Play this HAARP, we ana­lyzed Project HAARP, the patents for which specif­i­cally refer to appli­ca­tions alter­ing the weath­er for mil­i­tary pur­poses.

In this pro­gram, we exam­ine the pos­si­bil­ity of anoth­er appli­ca­tion of weath­er mod­i­fi­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy with poten­tial mil­i­tary appli­ca­tions. A project fund­ed by the Euro­pean Space Agency and par­ented by a “Ben” East­lund uti­lizes micow­ave beam tech­nol­ogy to neu­tral­ize tor­na­does. (The descrip­tion of East­lund as a for­mer Star Wars sci­en­tist sug­gest strong­ly that he is the Bernard East­lund who devel­oped HAARP, which also has poten­tial mis­sile defense appli­ca­tions.) In addi­tion to the fact that tor­na­does are a very rare occur­rence in Europe, they had pre­vi­ously been known to kill an aver­age of 100 Amer­i­cans a year–a rel­a­tively low casu­alty rate that has moved crit­ics to sug­gest that it wouldn’t be worth the expense of devel­op­ment.

One won­ders why this project would have been of inter­est to the Euro­pean Space Agency or Euro­peans in gen­er­al.

Feared to car­ry the poten­tial to make tor­na­does worse, the tech­nol­ogy might very well have poten­tial mil­i­tary appli­ca­tions.

In the wake of a dev­as­tat­ing tor­nado sea­son in the Unit­ed States, it might be worth­while to inquire as to whether such tech­nol­ogy may in fact have been devel­oped and uti­lized. Note that, in addi­tion to the ini­tial dev­as­ta­tion and loss of life inflict­ed by these dev­as­tat­ing storms, the fed­eral funds for aid and recon­struc­tion place fur­ther strain on the U.S. bud­get at a time when the nation­al debt and deficits are at the fore­fron of polit­i­cal debate in the Unit­ed States and else­where.

An ene­my of the U.S. could inflict both loss of life, prop­erty dam­age and fis­cal destruc­tion on the Unit­ed States through the appli­ca­tion of such tech­nol­o­gy. . . .

1. Past broad­casts have explored the use of envi­ron­men­tal mod­i­fi­ca­tion for mil­i­tary pur­poses. Those pro­grams are the foun­da­tion for this broad­cast. The title is a Bib­li­cal ref­er­ence (Hosea, 8:7), and refers to those who “. . . sow the wind” as being doomed to “. . .reap the whirl­wind.”

2. Ben East­lund, described as “a for­mer Star Wars defense pro­gram sci­en­tist,” has pro­posed using an orbital, space-based microwave beam to neu­tral­ize tor­na­does. (“Could Tor­na­does Be Pre­vented?” by Jer­ry Bowen; CBS News Online; 1/16/2001, www.cbsnews.com/now/story.)

3. East­lund appears to be the “Bernard” East­lund who devel­oped the HAARP sys­tem, described in the broad­casts enu­mer­ated above. The alter­ation of the weath­er for mil­i­tary pur­poses, and the destruc­tion of incom­ing ene­my mis­siles are among the stat­ed appli­ca­tions of the HAARP sys­tem patents. (The destruc­tion of ene­my mis­siles would, obvi­ously, be a “Star Wars” appli­ca­tion.)

4. Crit­ics of Eastlund’s pro­posal believe that his “tor­nado pre­ven­tion” sys­tem could, in prac­tice, make tor­na­does worse and/or kill birds or knock down air­planes. (Idem.)

5. Mr. Emory dis­cusses the pos­si­bil­ity that the same tech­nol­ogy could be used to cause tor­na­does. In that con­text, it should be not­ed that Eastlund’s research has been fund­ed by the Euro­pean Space Agency. (Idem.)

6. It should be not­ed that Europe rarely has tor­na­does and only 100 Amer­i­cans a year are killed by these storms. (One won­ders why the Euro­pean Space Agency would fund such research.) The pro­posed tor­nado tar­get­ing sys­tem would require “pre­ci­sion tar­get­ing” sys­tems. (Idem.) . . .
