New Weather Modification Research Papers By Dr. Bernard J. Eastlund
The use of satellites, HAARP and microwave frequencies to manipulate and
control severe weather patterns is Science reality.2000 WorldNetDaily.com
Borderland Sciences has recently received two very significant research papers authored by Dr. Bernard J. Eastlund:
SYSTEMS CONSIDERATIONS OF WEATHER MODIFICATION EXPERIMENTS USING HIGH POWER ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION, Published in Proceedings of Workshop on Space Exploration andResources Exploitation-Explospace, 20-22 October, 1998, Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy. MESOCYCLONE DIAGNOSTIC REQUIREMENTS FOR THUNDERSTORM SOLAR POWER SATELLITE CONCEPT, Published in the Proceedings of The Second Conference on the Applications of RemoteSensing and GIS for Disaster Management, January 19-21, 1999. Some of the highlights contained in these reports are: HAARP- MISSLE SHIELD ANTENNA (terrawatt phased array antenna) NORTH SLOPE GAS CONCEPT WEATHER MODIFICATION- OZONE HOLE MITIGATION EFFECTS- HIGH POWER SOLAR SATELLITES FOR WEATHER MODIFICATION- POWER RELAY IONOSPHERIC MIRRORS- INTERVENTION IN TORNADO GENESIS- SAFETY Dr. Eastlund stressed safety as a foremost consideration and stated:
Since so much reaction has accompanied the HAARP project, which is to be rated at 3.6Megawatts cw, compared to the 100 Megawatts to 1 terrawatt of the initial North Slope Gas Concepts idea base, it is clear that international cooperation and disclosure must be obtained for future high power antenna applications no matter how benificial they seem.Fortunately, this TSPS (Thunderstorm Solar Power Satellite) concept is not part of the military or the government and there is an opportunity to discuss it, and discard it if that is the best thing to do. Also, in the first paper, Dr. Eastlund stated, The public must be involved in the development of the concept from the start...the public itself must want to accept the risks involved.
These papers are published here in the interest of public viewing and evaluation. Many thanks to Dr. Eastlund for permitting us to post these here and for his openness to publish these documents.

NEW PARADIGMS FOR PLANET EARTH
Symbiotic Nuclear Power
Electricity driven ultra-high temperature plasma processor devices can separate radioactive materials and can lead to a resolution of the nuclear waste storage issue. Instead of sealed facilities that have to be guarded for thousands of years, the Symbiotic Nuclear Power concept is to use the radioactive waste to produce electricity generators that last for thousands of years, providing future societies with power. This would provide an alternative to Yucca mountain and help make nuclear power a practical near term energy source, along with wind, and solar.
Electricity and Hydrogen Directly from Underground Hydrocarbons
The ecological impact of hydrocarbon fuels could be reduced by the MEMSCOAL, MEMSOIL and MEMSSHALE concepts in which the hydrocarbons are processed in the formation, using horizontal drilling techniques and micro-fluidic processors to produce and deliver electricity and hydrogen to the surface. The hydrocarbon and the CO2 would never reach the atmosphere and the earth would not have to be torn up by mining.
The Fusion Torch
The long term energy and materials problems can be solved with the Fusion Torch concept which was conceived by Dr. Bernard Eastlund and William C. Gough in 1968. It is based on the inherent technological characteristics of ionized plasmas that are hot enough to fuse atoms and create energy in a manner similar to the stars. These hot plasmas can ionize any solid and can separate the elements to provide separated elements in place of the myriad chemicals in waste. The goals of this concept are to close the materials cycle while producing electricity or hydrogen.
These new approaches could effectively eliminate the environmental pressure on the
planet. Symbiotic nuclear power and underground production of electricity provide near term solutions while the Fusion Torch provides the long term solution. A beneficial result would be a shift from growth economics to stationary state economics which would naturally lead to conservation of resources -- such economics favors long life products.

U. S. PATENT 4,686,605 INTRODUCTION HAARP
HAARP is a large phased array electromagnetic wave generator located in Alaska. The involvement of Dr. Bernard Eastlund in its creation has been well documented in books and in magazine articles and newspapers. During the period in which many of the books and articles were written, Dr. Eastlund was under a 15 year confidentiality agreement with ARCO (The Atlantic Richfield Company). That confidentiality agreement has now matured. This web site will present information regarding the development of the ARCO patents and the founding of APTI (Now owned by AES Corporation) the corporation managing the HAARP facility. (The ARCO patents referred to in this web site are three patents that Dr. Eastlund assigned
to ARCO because he was a consultant. They are 1) U. S. Patent 4,686,605, 4,712,155 and 5,038,664.
The web site is divided into four sections: The HAARPROOTS section presents historical material from the early period of the development of the inventions. The ROADMAP is a compendium of most of the ideas developed between 1984 and 1987 with ARCO. HAARP3600000WATT describes the present status of HAARP related to the ARCO patents. The HAARPASAT section describes a potentially destabilizing applications of missile defense and as an Anti-Satellite-Weapon. (ASAT). HAARPWEATHER discusses
potential impacts of the HAARP device on weather and weather research.
HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS
One of the inspirations for the ARCO patents came from Dr. Eastlund's friendship with Nicholas Christofilos, a research scientist at the Livermore National Laboratory who was the inspiration of a series of high altitude nuclear explosions. The residue of these tests was a high population of MEV electrons trapped in what are now referred to as the Van Allen belts. These electrons presented a danger to
satellites because of their ability to penetrate solids, and to heat or disable materials in the satellites.
LABORATORY GENERATED MEV ELECTRONS
Eastlund combined this knowledge base with a means of creating MEV electrons that he was familiar with through a former position as a physicist with the U. S. Atomic energy program. A resonant heating method of creating MEV electrons using RF waves was developed and exploited by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Subsequent plasma devices have generated MEV electrons in the laboratory with resonant heating. A figure from the Large Helical Device project depicts such electrons confined by a
THE ARCO PATENTS (ASSIGNED TO APTI)
Eastlund combined the ideas of MEV electrons in space with the technology to generate MEV electrons using electromagnetic waves to create the idea of a missile shield and other applications of MEV electrons by inventing a large antenna array in Alaska to project RF electromagnetic waves to intersectwith the earth's geomagnetic field at high altitude. The subsequent relativistic electrons would destroy enemy missiles if they intersected with missile trajectories. See HAARPMEVELECTRONS.
The patents are:Method for Producing a Shell of Relativistic Particles at an Altitude Above the Earths Surface
Bernard J. Eastlund inventor, US Patent Number: 5,038,664 Issue Date: 8/13/91,Assignee: APTI, Inc.
Method and Apparatus For Altering a Region in the Earth's Atmosphere, Ionosphere, and/or Magnetosphere Bernard J. Eastlund inventor, US Patent Number: 4,686,605 Issue Date: 8/11/87 Assignee: APTI, Inc.
Method and Apparatus For Creating an Artificial Electron Cyclotron Heating Region of Plasma-Bernard J. Eastlund and Simon Ramo inventors, Patent Number: 4,712,155 Issue Date: 1/28/85 Assignee: APTI, Inc.
Note that all of these patents were filed before any subcontractors were involved with the project.The patent issued in 1991 had been held up because it was classified as secret for 5 years.
MEV ELECTRONS the HAARP system, or a system like it only larger, could accelerate copius numbers of MEV electrons along magnetic field lines in the atmosphere, then, in our opinion, this could be the greatest threat to modern military satellite technology. A geosynchronous satellite could be eliminated within 20 minutes. There is some indication that other countries, such as China are working on such technologies. See HAARPMEVELECTRONS

A ROADMAP FOR NORTH SLOPE GAS CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT
A roadmap for North Slope Gas Development was developed in 1986. This included concepts from the original 3 ARCO patents and new ideas developed or embellished by subcontractors from Titan Systems Corporation and SAIC Corporation. The major subsections of the roadmap were:
Ballistic Missile Shield
Strategic Space Weapon Defense
ASAT (Anti Satellite Weapon)
Satellite Corridor Formation (Van Allen Belt Drainage)
Over the Horizon (OTH) Reflector (Ionospheric Patch Formation)
Detection and Discrimination
Ground to Space Power Beaming (ARCO Satellite Gas Station)
Nuclear Weapons Effects Simulation
Ballistic Missile Launch Detection (Whispering Gallery)
Enhanced Oil Recovery
The history in HAARPSROOTS indicates progress in some of these areas. (i.e. contracts awarded) The HAARP facility itself was an outgrowth of this road map. A generic briefing was prepared and Simon Ramo and others helped ARCO and APTI (A wholly owned subsidiary of ARCO at that time) market various concepts. Some of
them, such as satellite corridor formation are active areas of research at the HAARP facility. Some figures that were used during the sales efforts to the DOD are shown below:
COSMIC WEATHER WAVES
HAARP- WEATHER CONNECTION WEATHER MODIFICATION RESEARCH WAS DISCUSSED IN THE EASTLUND ARCO PATENTS INTRODUCTION
THE ARCO PATENTS
The science of weather modification is in its infancy. When the ARCO patents were written in 1984, the only scientific approach was salting clouds with silver iodide. One of the reasons weather modification is not a science is that scientists have made what they considered to be reasonable assessments of the relative size of forcing technologies (such as wind generators, microwave heaters, or explosions) and determined that the large size of weather systems make it useless to attempt to change weather patterns with human intervention.
The energy turnover of a storm system can be related to an equivalent power through the rainfall rate. The various severe storm categories are related to the total electric power consumption of New York City in the table
SMALL THUNDERSTORM 10 New York Cities
LARGE THUNDERSTORM 1000 New York Cities
MAJOR STORM SYSTEM 10000 New York Cities
HURRICANE 100,000 New York Cities
The power levels required for the ARCO antenna to create MEV electrons and defeat a missile attack by the Soviet Union was estimated to require generation of a power equivalent to 100,000 New York Cities for a time period of 20 minutes.
Dr. Eastlund was aware that these power levels were equivalent to the power in such big systems and also comparable to the local energy in the stratosphere of the polar jet stream, which comes near the Prudhoe Bay ARCO installation. For that reason, two of the patents included suggestions for weather modification. (See figure
In U. S. Patent 4,712,155 Eastlund states,In one embodiment of the invention, electron cyclotron resonance heating is carried out in the selected region at sufficient power levels to allow the plasma to generate a mirror force which forces the charged electrons of the altered plasma upward along the force line to an altitude which is higher than the original altitude. As the plasma moves upward, other particles from the atmosphere at the same altitude as the selected region move horizontally into the region to replace the rising plasma and to form new plasma. The kinetic energy developed by said other particles as they move horizontally is on the same order of magnitude of as the total zonal kinetic energy of stratospheric winds known to exist at altitudes equal to the region being altered. Since there is evidence that these stratospheric winds may be linked to certain weather patterns on
earth, the present method may be used to affect similar patterns.
In U. S. Patent 4,686,605 Eastlund states, Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.
IS HAARP THE RIGHT SIZE?
HAARP is not nearly as big as the systems envisioned in the original ARCO patents. However, this led Dr. Eastlund to further investigate how to influence severe weather by artificial means. The Thunderstorm Solar Power Satellite was one of the results of this reasoning. Another approach is to produce plasmas in the
atmosphere and utilize various properties of those plasmas for surgical heating of sensitive areas of storms.
HAARP AND GRAVITY WAVES
Gravity waves have received much attention over the last 5 years as an important initiator or cause of some severe weather phenomena.
Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology is about the military’s plan to manipulate that which belongs to the world — the ionosphere. The arrogance of the United States government in this is not without precedent.
-Professor Michel Chossudovsky explains in The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction:Owning the Weather for Military Use :
Environmental warfare is defined as the intentional modification or manipulation of the natural ecology, such as climate and weather, earth systems such as the ionosphere, magnetosphere, tectonic plate system, and/or the triggering of seismic events (earthquakes) to cause intentional physical, economic, and psycho-social, and physical destruction to an intended target geophysical or population location, as part of strategic or tactical war.(Eco News)What are the underlying causes of extreme weather instability, which has ravaged every major region of the World in the course of the last few years? Hurricanes and tropical storms have ravaged the Caribbean. Central Asia and the Middle East are afflicted by drought. West Africa is facing the biggest swarm of locusts in more than a decade. Four destructive hurricanes and a tropical rain storm Alex, Ivan, Frances, Charley and Jeanne have occurred in a sequence, within a short period of time. Unprecedented in hurricane history in the Caribbean, the island of Grenada was completely devastated: 37 people died and roughly two-thirds of the island’s 100,000 inhabitants have been left homeless; in Haiti, more than two thousand people have died and tens of thousands are homeless. The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba, the Bahamas and Florida have also been devastated. In the US, the damage in several Southern states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Carolinas is the highest in US history.
The significant expansion in America’s weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense is not a matter for debate or discussion. While, environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of weather warfare, namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned.The US Air Force has the capability of manipulating climate either for testing purposes or for outright military-intelligence use. These capabilities extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes. In recent years, large amounts of money have been allocated by the US Department of Defense to further developing and perfecting these capabilities.Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather, … and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power.

Climatic Manipulation by the US Military: The HAARP Program
The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokona, Alaska, has been in existence since 1992. It is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating controlled local modifications of the ionosphere[upper layer of the atmosphere]:[HAARP will be used] to induce a small, localized change in ionospheric temperature so that resulting physical reactions can be studied by other instruments located either at or close to the HAARP site. (HAARP website)
Nicholas Begich –actively involved in the public campaign against HAARP– describes HAARP as:A super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead.World renowned scientist Dr. Rosalie Bertell depicts HAARP as a gigantic heater that can cause major disruptions in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet. According to Richard Williams, a physicist and consultant to the David Sarnoff laboratory in Princeton.HAARP constitutes an irresponsible act of global vandalism. He and others fear a secret second stage where HAARP would beam much more energy into the ionosphere. That could produce a severe disruption of the upper atmosphere at one location that may produce effects that spread rapidly around the Earth for years.HAARP has been presented to public opinion as a program of scientific and academic research. US military documents seem to suggest, however, that HAARP’s main objective is to exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes.Without explicitly referring to the HAARP program, a US Air Force study points to the use of induced ionospheric modifications as a means of altering weather patterns as well as disrupting enemy communications and radar. (Ibid)HAARP also has the ability of triggering blackouts and disrupting the electricity power system of entire regions. An analysis of statements emanating from the US Air Force points to the unthinkable: the covert manipulation of weather patterns, communications systems and electric power as a weapon of global warfare, enabling the US to disrupt and dominate entire regions of the World.
-Was Katrina a man made hurricane? Richard Hoagland has this to say: …what we are seeing in this extraordinary radar sequence … is the standard NEXRAD radar signal being — somehow — reflected back from the clear air over and around New Orleans … air which has somehow been made radar reflective by the application of an otherwise invisible energy signature … from somewhere.While the precise nature of this anomalous reflection mechanism is currently unknown — without further information from other sensor systems — possibilities range from actual ionization of the air itself (making it more electrically conductive — and thus radar reflective), to equally anomalous wavelike changes in the density of the air within the rotating radar beam ….In the HD Model, it is this HD imprinting of New Orleans, by this impossible (in current physics) energy vortex signature which … 12 days later … literally attracted Hurricane Katrina right to New Orleans … exactly like a homesick homing pigeon! By any current physics, such imprinting of an entire geographical location is impossible. But, isn’t this type of extremely sophisticated climate control technology precisely what former Secretary of Defense, William Cohen, tried to warn us about … back in 1997!?
…the official NEXRAD radar signatures of August 17th … which dramatically attests that something, definitely impossible by all known current physics, was leaving an easily detectable radar signature in clear air over the City of New Orleans, on the evening of August 17th …. Something which … 12 days later … attracted the worst regional hurricane disaster in the history of these United States.What that energy signature ultimately represents MUST now be explained … lest whomever is actually using this secret technology, decides to strike again ….
-There are quite a few people who are of the opinion that The Dec 26, 2004 tsunami was man made (see here and here). It is however, very hard to conclude without real evidence.
-Reality is very seldom what the general public perceive it to be. Most people live in a largely imaginary world, brainwashed into believing propaganda and outright lies. Many actually believe that the truth is a lie and the lie is the truth. Strange but true.
-Weather weapons are here. Increasingly, they are being used and it shows. Anomalous unseasonal weather seems to be happening more frequently. So, when you hear of earthquakes, hurricanes and floods, before you say : Act of God, think about it. It may actually be act of man. See also :
Washington's New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change by Michel Chossudovsky, Professor of Economics, University of Ottawa - Third World Resurgence, January 2001 - Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG), globalresearch.ca, 4 January 2002
The important debate on global warming under UN auspices provides but a partial picture of climate change; in addition to the devastating impacts of greenhouse gas emissions on the ozone layer, the World's climate can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated non-lethal weapons. Both the Americans and the Russians have developed capabilities to manipulate the World's climate.In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) as part of the (Star Wars) Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions.While there is no evidence that this deadly technology has been used, surely the United Nations should be addressing the issue of environmental warfare alongside the debate on the climatic impacts of greenhouse gases...
Despite a vast body of scientific knowledge, the issue of deliberate climatic manipulations for military use has never been explicitly part of the UN agenda on climate change. Neither the official delegations nor the environmental action groups participating in the Hague Conference on Climate Change (CO6) (November 2000) have raised the broad issue of weather warfare or environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) as relevant to an understanding of climate change.The clash between official negotiators, environmentalists and American business lobbies has centered on Washington's outright refusal to abide by commitments on carbon dioxide reduction targets under the 1997 Kyoto protocol.(1) The impacts of military technologies on the World's climate are not an object of discussion or concern. Narrowly confined to greenhouse gases, the ongoing debate on climate change serves Washington's strategic and defense objectives.
World renowned scientist Dr. Rosalie Bertell confirms that US military scientists ... are working on weather systems as a potential weapon. The methods include the enhancing of storms and the diverting of vapor rivers in the Earth's atmosphere to produce targeted droughts or floods.(2) Already in the 1970s, former National Security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski had foreseen in his book Between Two Ages that:Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... [T]echniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm.Marc Filterman, a former French military officer, outlines several types of unconventional weapons using radio frequencies. He refers to weather war, indicating that the U.S. and the Soviet Union had already mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s.(3) These technologies make it possible to trigger atmospheric disturbances by using Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radar [waves].(4)
A simulation study of future defense scenarios commissioned for the US Air Force calls for:US aerospace forces to own the weather by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications... From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary... In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels.(5)
HIGH-FREQUENCY ACTIVE AURORAL RESEARCH PROGRAM (HAARP)
The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokoma Alaska --jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy-- is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory's Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating controlled local modifications of the ionosphere. Scientist Dr. Nicholas Begich --actively involved in the public campaign against HAARP-- describes HAARP as:A super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere [upper layer of the atmosphere] by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything -- living and dead.(6)Dr. Rosalie Bertell depicts HAARP as a gigantic heater that can cause major disruption in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet.7
MISLEADING PUBLIC OPINION
HAARP has been presented to public opinion as a program of scientific and academic research. US military documents seem to suggest, however, that HAARP's main objective is to exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes.(8) Without explicitly referring to the HAARP program, a US Air Force study points to the use of induced ionospheric modifications as a means of altering weather patterns as well as disrupting enemy communications and radar.9 According to Dr. Rosalie Bertell, HAARP is part of a integrated weapons' system, which has potentially devastating environmental consequences:It is related to fifty years of intensive and increasingly destructive programs to understand and control the upper atmosphere. It would be rash not to associate HAARP with the space laboratory construction which is separately being planned by the United States. HAARP is an integral part of a long history of space research and development of a deliberate military nature. The military implications of combining these projects is alarming. ... The ability of the HAARP / Spacelab/ rocket combination to deliver very large amount of energy, comparable to a nuclear bomb, anywhere on earth via laser and particle beams, are frightening. The project is likely to be "sold" to the public as a space shield against incoming weapons, or, for the more gullible, a device for repairing the ozone layer. (10)
In addition to weather manipulation, HAARP has a number of related uses:HAARP could contribute to climate change by intensively bombarding the atmosphere with high-frequency rays... Returning low-frequency waves at high intensity could also affect people's brains, and effects on tectonic movements cannot be ruled out. (11)More generally, HAARP has the ability of modifying the World's electro-magnetic field. It is part of an arsenal of electronic weapons which US military researchers consider a gentler and kinder warfare. (12)
WEAPONS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER
HAARP is part of the weapons arsenal of the New World Order under the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). From military command points in the US, entire national economies could potentially be destabilized through climatic manipulations. More importantly, the latter can be implemented without the knowledge of the enemy, at minimal cost and without engaging military personnel and equipment as in a conventional war.The use of HAARP -- if it were to be applied -- could have potentially devastating impacts on the World's climate. Responding to US economic and strategic interests, it could be used to selectively modify climate in different parts of the World resulting in the destabilization of agricultural and ecological systems.It is also worth noting that the US Department of Defense has allocated substantial resources to the development of intelligence and monitoring systems on weather changes. NASA and the Department of Defense's National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) are working on imagery for studies of flooding, erosion, land-slide hazards, earthquakes, ecological zones, weather forecasts, and climate change with data relayed from satellites. (13)
POLICY INERTIA OF THE UNITED NATIONS
According to the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) signed at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro:States have... in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the (...) responsibility to ensure that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to the environment of other States or of areas beyond the limits of national jurisdiction.(14)It is also worth recalling that an international Convention ratified by the UN General Assembly in 1997 bans military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects.(15) Both the US and the Soviet Union were signatories to the Convention. The Convention defines environmental modification techniques as referring to any technique for changing--through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes--the dynamics, composition or structure of the earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere or of outer space.(16)Why then did the UN --disregarding the 1977 ENMOD Convention as well as its own charter-- decide to exclude from its agenda climatic changes resulting from military programs?
EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ACKNOWLEDGES IMPACTS OF HAARP
In February 1998, responding to a report of Mrs. Maj Britt Theorin --Swedish MEP and longtime peace advocate--, the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs, Security and Defense Policy held public hearings in Brussels on the HAARP program.(17) The Committee's Motion for Resolution submitted to the European Parliament:
Considers HAARP... by virtue of its far-reaching impact on the environment to be a global concern and calls for its legal, ecological and ethical implications to be examined by an international independent body...; [the Committee] regrets the repeated refusal of the United States Administration... to give evidence to the public hearing ...into the environmental and public risks [of] the HAARP program.(18).The Committee's request to draw up a Green Paper on the environmental impacts of military activities, however, was casually dismissed on the grounds that the European Commission lacks the required jurisdiction to delve into the links between environment and defense. (19) Brussels was anxious to avoid a showdown with Washington.
While there is no concrete evidence of HAARP having been used, scientific findings suggest that it is at present fully operational. What this means is that HAARP could potentially be applied by the US military to selectively modify the climate of an unfriendly nation or rogue state with a view to destabilizing its national economy.
Agricultural systems in both developed and developing countries are already in crisis as a result of New World Order policies including market deregulation, commodity dumping, etc. Amply documented, IMF and World Bank economic medicine imposed on the Third World and the countries of the former Soviet block has largely contributed to the destabilization of domestic agriculture. In turn, the provisions of the World Trade Organization (WTO) have supported the interests of a handful of Western agri-biotech conglomerates in their quest to impose genetically modified (GMO) seeds on farmers throughout the World.It is important to understand the linkage between the economic, strategic and military processes of the New World Order. In the above context, climatic manipulations under the HAARP program (whether accidental or deliberate) would inevitably exacerbate these changes by weakening national economies, destroying infrastructure and potentially triggering the bankruptcy of farmers over vast areas. Surely national governments and the United Nations should address the possible consequences of HAARP and other non-lethal weapons on climate change.

WHY DO I THINK ISRAEL HAS THIS HAARP PROGRAM BECAUSE WHEN GOD IS SENDING JUDGEMENT AGAINST THE RUSSIA-MUSLIM ARMIES,WEATHER AND PLAGUES AND CONFUSION ARE COMING AGAINST THIS ARMY TO KILL 5/6TH OF THEM IN EZEKIEL 38&39.THIS HAARP PROGRAM CAN USE MIND CONTROL IN WARFARE.SO IT FITS RIGHT IN WITH EZEKIEL 38-39 THAT GOD STRIKES THEM WITH CONFUSION THAT THEY KILL ONE AND OTHER AND BLINDS THEM.
11 And thou (RUSSIA-MUSLIMS) shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,(THATS ISRAEL)
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan,(SAUDI-ARABIA) and the merchants of Tarshish,(SPAIN-EU) with all the young lions thereof,(ENGLAND,CANADA,USA) shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog,(RUSSIA)Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts,(RUSSIA_ thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:(MUSLIMS)
16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.
19 For in my jealousy and in the fire (NUCLEAR WEAPONS) of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;(EARTHQUAKE)
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.(NUKES)
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog,(LEADER OF RUSSIA) and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:(RUSSIA)
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog,(RUSSIA) and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.(FROM NUCLEAR RADIATION)
13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.(TAKES 7 MONTHS BEFORE THE RADIATON DIES DOWN ENOUGH TO GET THE BONES OF THE RUSSIA-MUSLIMS)TO BURY THEM.)
15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
Nick Begich: HAARP, Weather Control and Mind Control
-This is a fascinating interview! Dr. Nick Begich writer of Angels Don’t Play This HAARP, goes on the Coast To Coast show in 2003. Dr Begich explains the weather control technology that the military industrial complex already possessed. He also explains the science behind HAARP and how this technology can be used for mind control. HAARP uses frequency range that is the same as the human brain. By sending specific frequencies, the populace can be made to feel different emotions/manipulations: fear, ecstasy…influencing elections… etc. The military industrial complex undoubtedly has some of these mind control equipment in their black ops arsenal.
The Military’s Pandora’s Box
…. The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the most disturbing. More than 40 pages of the book, with dozens of footnotes, chronicle the work of Harvard professors, military planners and scientists as they plan and test this use of the electromagnetic technology. For example, one of the papers describing this use was from the International Red Cross in Geneva. It even gave the frequency ranges where these effects could occur — the same ranges which HAARP is capable of broadcasting.
The following statement was made more than twenty-five years ago in a book by Brzezinski which he wrote while a professor at Columbia University:Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J.F. MacDonald, a specialist in problems of warfare, says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth … in this way one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period.
… no matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages, to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades.In 1966, MacDonald was a member of the President’s Science Advisory Committee and later a member of the President’s Council on Environmental Quality. He published papers on the use of environmental control technologies for military purposes. The most profound comment he made as a geophysicist was, the key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy. While yesterday’s geophysicists predicted today’s advances, are HAARP program managers delivering on the vision?
As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted a more controlled and directed society would gradually appear, linked to technology. This society would be dominated by an elite group which impresses voters by allegedly superior scientific know-how. Angels Don’t Play This HAARP further quotes Brzezinski:Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it exploits, Brzezinski predicted.His forecasts proved accurate. Today, a number of new tools for the elite are emerging, and the temptation to use them increases steadily. The policies to permit the tools to be used are already in place. How could the United States be changed, bit by bit, into the predicted highly-controlled technosociety? Among the steppingstones Brzezinski expected were persisting social crises and use of the mass media to gain the public’s confidence.
In another document prepared by the government, the U.S. Air Force claims: The potential applications of artificial electromagnetic fields are wide-ranging and can be used in many military or quasi-military situations… Some of these potential uses include dealing with terrorist groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security at military installations, and antipersonnel techniques in tactical warfare. In all of these cases the EM (electromagnetic) systems would be used to produce mild to severe physiological disruption or perceptual distortion or disorientation. In addition, the ability of individuals to function could be degraded to such a point that they would be combat ineffective. Another advantage of electromagnetic systems is that they can provide coverage over large areas with a single system. They are silent and countermeasures to them may be difficult to develop… One last area where electromagnetic radiation may prove of some value is in enhancing abilities of individuals for anomalous phenomena.Do these comments point to uses already somewhat developed? The author of the government report refers to an earlier Air Force document about the uses of radio frequency radiation in combat situations. (Here Begich and Manning note that HAARP is the most versatile and the largest radio-frequency-radiation transmitter in the world.)
-Dr. Begich has also written another book :The Technologies of Political Control or Tools for Peak Performance This is the Century of the brain and the mind. The technologies that have advanced, under cover of secrecy and national security, now have the power to either enslave us or free us to our higher potentials. These technologies will impact our consciousness itself and as a result require an invigorated public debate, in the light of day. At the same time, there is hope and great possibility in these areas of science. The first part of this book deals with the sinister side of Controlling the Human Mind with the second part exploring the possibilities that are emerging with new brain and mind enhancing technologies. The greatest threats and the greatest possibilities reside within the core of who we are and what happens in the center of our minds, the seat of our souls. This is the most important book yet released from the research efforts of Dr. Nick Begich.The best deterrent that we have against acts of terrorism is to find out who is conspiring, who has the material, where they are getting it, who they are talking to, and what are their plans. In order to do that, in order to interdict the terrorists before they set off their weapon, you have to have that kind of intelligence-gathering capability, but it runs smack into our constitutional protections of privacy. And it’s a tension which will continue to exist in every free society – the reconciliation of the need for liberty and the need for law and order….that once these weapons start to be exploded people will say, Protect us. We’re willing to give up some of our liberties and some of our freedoms, but you must protect us. And that is what will lead us into this 21st century, this kind of Constitutional tension of how much protection can we provide and still preserve essential liberties.
Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Defense Viewpoint, December 1, 1998
One can envision the development of electromagnetic energy sources, the output of which can be pulsed, shaped, and focused, that can couple with the human body in a fashion that will allow one to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control emotions (and thus actions), produce sleep, transmit suggestions, interfere with both short-term and long-term memory, produce an experience set, and delete an experience set. It would also appear possible to create high fidelity speech in the human body, raising the possibility of covert suggestion and psychological direction…Thus, it may be possible to talk to selected adversaries in a fashion that would be most disturbing to them.United States Air Force Scientific Advisory Board, New World Vistas: Air and Space Power For The 21st Century.
Real Versus Fake Crises: Concealing The Risk of An All Out Nuclear War by Michel Chossudovsky Global Research, September 16, 2010
http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=21044 (READ LINKS)
We have reached a turning point in our history. The US and its allies are preparing to launch a nuclear war with devastating consequences. During the Cold War, the concept of mutual assured destruction (MAD) was put forth. An understanding of the consequences of nuclear war largely contributed to avoiding the outbreak of war between the US and the Soviet Union.Today, in the post-Cold war era, no such understanding prevails.The spectre of a nuclear holocaust, which haunted the world for half a century has been relegated to the status of collateral damage. This military adventure in the real sense of the word threatens the future of humanity.
While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to assess or fully comprehend the devastation which would result from a Third World War, using new technologies and advanced weapons systems, until it actually occurs and becomes a reality.A sequence of US sponsored wars characterizes a period of our history euphemistically referred to as the post-War era. The US led war in Afghanistan has been ongoing, in various stages, for thirty-one years. Iraq has been under US and allied military occupation for more than seven years.We are living history but at the same time we are unable to comprehend the events which shape our future and which are currently unfolding in front of our very eyes.
The details of ongoing war preparations in relation to Iran have been withheld from the public eye. (See See Michel Chossudovsky, Preparing for World War III, Targeting Iran, Global Research, August 1, 2010, Towards a World War III Scenario? The Role of Israel in Triggering an Attack on Iran, August 13, 2010) The media is involved in acts of camouflage. The devastating impacts of a nuclear war are either trivialized or not mentioned. Meanwhile, public opinion has its eyes rivetted on what might be described as fake crises.A Third World War is no longer a hypothetical scenario. Already in 2007, president Bush had hinted in no uncertain terms that if Iran did not comply with US demands, we might reluctantly be forced into in a World War III situation: We got a leader in Iran who has announced that he wants to destroy Israel. So I've told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon. I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously....(George W. Bush, 17 October 2007) Grin and Laugh: Here's Bush's expression while saying the words World War Three (Huffington Post, 17 October 2007)
Real versus Fake Crises
In an utterly twisted logic, World War III is presented as a means to preserving World Peace.Iran is blamed for refusing to abide by the reasonable demands of the international community.Realities are twisted and turned upside down. Iran is being accused of wanting to start World War III. Inherent in US military doctrine, the victims of war are often heralded as the aggressor. World War III is upheld as a bona fide humanitarian undertaking which contributes to global security. In a bitter irony, those who decide on the use of nuclear weapons believe their own propaganda. President and Commander in Chief Barack Obama believes his own lies.
Neither the War nor the worldwide economic depression are understood as part of an unprecedented crisis in World history. Ironically, the dangers to humanity of an all out nuclear war do not instil fear and public concern. Instead, fake crises -- e.g. a global warming, a Worldwide flu pandemic, a false flag nuclear attack by Islamic terrorists--, are fabricated by the media, the governments, the intelligence apparatus and the Washington think tanks. An understanding of fundamental social and political events is replaced by a World of sheer fantasy, where evil folks are lurking. The purpose of these fake crises is to obfuscate the real crisis as well as instil fear and insecurity among the population: The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed ... by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary... The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.(H. L. Menken)While the real danger of nuclear war is barely acknowledged, these fake crises are invariably front page news.
Mass unemployment, foreclosures and poverty are not characteristic of a (social) crisis.
The legalization of torture and targeted political assassinations is not part of a (constitutional) crisis. Torturing and killing potential terrorists are intended to make the world safer.
War waged on humanitarian grounds is considered a solution to a crisis rather than its cause.
Economic Depression is not mentioned because the economic recession is said to be over. In other words there is no economic crisis.
Three Types of Fake Crises
1. A Nuclear Attack on America by Al Qaeda
Sooner or later there will be a nuclear 9/11 [by Islamic terrorists] in an American city or that of a US ally... A terrorist nuclear attack against an American city could take many forms. A worst case scenario would be the detonation of a nuclear device within a city. Depending upon the size and sophistication of the weapon, it could kill hundreds of thousands or even millions of people.David Krieger, Is a Nuclear 9/11 in Our Future?, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, October 6, 2003 The nuclear threat comes from non-State organizations, with limited advanced weapons' capabilities rather than from known nuclear powers (nuclear States).
2 A Global Public Health Emergency. A Global Flu Pandemic
As many as 2 billion people could become infected [H1N1] over the next two years — nearly one-third of the world population. (World Health Organization as reported by the Western media, July 2009, emphasis added)Swine flu could strike up to 40 percent of Americans over the next two years and as many as several hundred thousand could die if a vaccine campaign and other measures aren't successful.(Official Statement of the US Administration, Associated Press, 24 July 2009). The U.S. expects to have 160 million doses of swine flu vaccine available sometime in October, (Associated Press, 23 July 2009) Vaccine makers could produce 4.9 billion pandemic flu shots per year in the best-case scenario, (Margaret Chan, Director-General, World Health Organization (WHO), quoted by Reuters, 21 July 2009)
3. The Perils of Global Warming
The headline figures are: 300,000 deaths and 300 million people affected every year [by global warming] (Greenpeace, Deaths and displacement due to climate change set to grow. June 5, 2009)Climate change is life or death. It is the new global battlefield. (Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Laureate) Two thousand scientists, in a hundred countries, engaged in the most elaborate, well organized scientific collaboration in the history of humankind, have produced long-since a consensus that we will face a string of terrible catastrophes unless we act to prepare ourselves and deal with the underlying causes of global warming. (Al Gore, speech at National Sierra Club Convention, Sept. 9, 2005)The ultimate concern is that if runaway global warming occurred, temperatures could spiral out of control and make our planet uninhabitable.... this is the first time that a species has been at risk of generating its own demise.… The dinosaurs dominated the earth for 160 million years. We are in danger of putting our future at risk after a mere quarter of a million years.(Michael Meacher, Former UK Minister for the Environment, quoted in the The Guardian, 14 February 2003, emphasis added)
The American Inquisition
Heralded as the real threat, these fake crises constitute a cover-up of the real crisis. The objective is to distort the facts, create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation as well as quell popular dissent and resistance against the established political and economic order. We are dealing with an inquisitorial environment. In the words of Monty Python: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! [Read the American inquisition] Our chief weapon is surprise [Read insecurity] ...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency .... Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency... and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope [Read the US government].... Our four...no... Amongst our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.The fear campaign underlying a fake crisis is intended to obfuscate the real crisis --including the danger of nuclear war-- as well as disarm all forms of meaningful resistance and opposition.

Measles vaccination plan fails to win over Chinese public-Conspiracy theories spread as health ministry tries to calm anxieties over government plans to immunise 100 million childrenguardian.co.uk, Sunday 12 September 2010 20.03 BST
Public distrust over government plans to vaccinate 100 million children against measles has led to conspiracy theories spread by text messaging and internet bulletin boards full of worried messages. The health ministry tried to calm anxieties over the 10-day immunisation drive, which began yesterday, stressing the need for the vaccine and availability of medics in case of adverse reactions. But public scepticism persisted, rooted in the view that the government is unaccountable, that it withheld information on Sars, and that vaccines given in one province possibly killed four children.

Running scared are we? Democrats want tax cuts for all now By Laurie Roth SEPT 16,10
I’m laughing as I’m writing this. 31 Democrats have signed onto a letter to Pelosi saying they want tax cuts for all, not just those making under $250,000 a year. Naturally, those 31 are most concerned about re election campaigns.With what they have seen already with the focus, power and fund raising ability of that domestic terrorist, racist, radical and UN American group…..the Tea Party folks,they should be concerned. Perhaps we are coming to Jesus and going to the alter now are we???
This entire first two years of the Obama administration we have heard endless speeches from Pelosi,Reid and Obama demonizing the rich, business owners, capitalism and achievement. Though we have been in economic fall out, severe recession if not depression and history setting foreclosures with repossessions setting an all time record, Obama has and is raising taxes everywhere he can.There are at least 20 hidden and absurd taxes in the Health care bill, cap and trade if they get their way and all the tax increases they plan by letting the Bush tax cuts go away.Obama and this congress are trying to figure every way they possibly can to tax everyone, especially anyone who owns a business. They are the bad, evil ones that must be spanked for creating so many jobs, struggling to make payroll, many times being paid last in a real business.In addition,now businesses with at least 50 employees have the additional gift of being forced to provide health insurance or else they get a 2000 fine per employee per year.It is funny what a few primaries, elections and polls going to hell do to the democrat progressive view of taxing everyone that moves and breaths. Magically, they might start to think of the importance of at least appearing like they support real tax cuts for all. They pray to the Goddess that hopefully these sincere platitudes will let them get re- elected instead of the Tea Party hatchet job that is coming there way.
Not every election coming will go the conservative’s way but we are watching a real, peaceful and growing revolution, backed and fueled by the 70-80 million Tea Party folks who have been called every name there is by Obama this congress and the media. Frankly, much of the conservative media, even some Republican Rhino leadership have stupidly minimized their focus, passion and determination to get folks elected and clean house. Now it is hilarious to see the media, old political establishment and terrified progressive Democrats have a come to Jesus moment and wake up. The attacks intensify all around. The patronizing and fake out respect talk intensifies everywhere. The political parties and finally some media are realizing that the Tea Party people ARE the American people (black, white, Democrat, Independent, Republican, Christian, non Christian) and they now know they are the biggest branch of Government who will not be silent anymore.No matter the screaming, crying and praying going on by those who have shredded, ignored and beat up the Tea Party folks and our constitution, it falls under a simple category of response now.Too little, too late. Bye Bye.
Obama care’s days may be over soon By Laurie Roth SEPT 14,10
A federal judge in Florida declared that big portions of a lawsuit can likely go forward to trial. Suits against Obama Health care have been launched by 20 states so far and Tuesday there will be a hearing on the case in Pensacola FL. Obama and his minions have hoped this judge would just throw the lawsuit out but it doesn’t look that way so far. The states suing have issue with being forced to have health insurance or receive tax penalties. There is also disagreement from the states about them paying for additional Medicaid costs that the federal government won’t cover in this health bill. Many are feeling that this will go all the way to the Supreme Court.Most of us who have studied anything at all about the Health care bill find very quickly that it has very little to do about health. It has 20 hidden taxes peppered all through it and absurd taxes attached to it like Real Estate taxes, taxes on businesses, individuals, families, tanning, fancy plans, Medicare and medical Aid devices. These are just a few of the exploitive taxes and force feeds.What we need are not only lawsuits that get legs, but as soon as sane leaders get in the House and Senate again we need instant defunding and repealing of this horror show of unconstitutional control. Senator Jim DeMint sent out a letter this week regarding his strong position of repealing this bill. He is the head of the Senate Conservatives Fund which has one goal, to back strong conservatives and get them elected. So far he says of those running for office now, the following have vowed to push repealing the Health care bill: Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania; Marco Rubio in Florida; Ken Buck in Colorado; Rand Paul in Kentucky; Mike Lee in Utah; Sharron Angle in Nevada; Ron Johnson in Wisconsin; Dino Rossi in Washington; and Joe Miller in Alaska.
Senator DeMint also talks in his letter about the influence of Rhinos who are already hedging and downplaying expectations regarding a repeal. They are talking about canceling bits and pieces of the bill. I agree 1000% with the Senator. That is most unacceptable. This bill is unwanted by most Americans, it is vividly unconstitutional, we can’t remotely afford it and it shreds the quality and freedom within our health care system. It would end the best health care system in the world and for the first time have our federal Government force us all to buy a product and service whether we want to or not. Related to this whole health care/hidden tax nightmare is the already huge tax increases planned with this administration by allowing the Bush tax cuts to die at the end of Dec. The lies and distortions are boring already. The latest bad guy the Obama administration is misinterpreting and trying to shred (it ain’t working) I House Republican Leader, John Boehner who is vividly against any tax increases for all groups. The White House, as usual took his statements out of context saying he was unwilling to accept tax increases for any citizen. Boehner has fired back in his colorful way. He said I’ve got a news flash for the White House I am not willing to accept tax hikes on any American. Like so many conservative leaders, Boehner has been very concerned about any tax increases on small business in this struggling economy. Connie Hair of Human Events laid this distorted media fight between Obama and Boehner out beautifully. She recalled Boehner’s interview with Bob Schieffer on CBS Face the Nation.Schieffer did the usual, liberal, out of context spin on Boehner. Aren’t you kind of holding the tax cuts for the lower-income people, the people making less than $250,000 hostage, so you can give those tax cuts to the upper brackets? Boehner’s answer was simple and to the point when he said he wanted a tax break for all Americans. We all know that Obama and this congress must find and create enemies to blame so they can continue to tax and take more money from us. They don’t intend to give up any taxes within the Health care bill or any other scheme. They just keep inventing new ways to hide those taxes, hoping we don’t notice it is really them behind the curtain. The progressive Democrats and Obama however have no interest in sending us back to OZ however. They intend to have us pay to build the International, Wicked Witch castle that they control. The monkeys can fly at us some more but we are now a nation with buckets of water and attitudes to match. We can’t wait for the monkeys to land and try and take us.

Prince Harry would do Machiavelli proud.It appears that our boy is still pushing his so called Dream Act, read that by its real name AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS! Realizing that he has no chance of getting a comprehensive immigration reform bill passed, he has set about doing it one piece at a time, and in a rather underhanded way.He will try coming through the back door by attaching it as an amendment to the military spending bill so he can point the finger at those who vote against it and yell see they are against our troops! Reid’s boss, Barry Soetoro/Obama made a campaign promise to pass comprehensive immigration reform so Harry is trying any way he can to push this building block piece of the pie forward before the election.The only reason to push immigration reform is to pander to the Hispanic voters (I wonder how many illegal immigrants vote in our elections now?) so that soon the Democrats will be the only party just by sheer weight of numbers, that will eventually make the Democrats the power party forever, read that communism, socialism, or whatever else you want to call it, I CALL IT COMPLETE LOSS OF LIBERTY!!!
I wrote a column a couple of weeks ago entitled More Slither Than a Bag of Snakes, and for my money this just adds one more brick to that wall of accusations against Harry (the curmudgeon in chief) and that pack of snakes in Washington D.C. who still are not listening to the people.Harry: Why should people who have no respect for our laws be rewarded for breaking our laws by granting them amnesty and a path to citizenship? I have no problem with legal immigration so back where you came from, learn the language make application the legal way and then get in line.The only benefit this passage will achieve is to Harry Reid’s political career, he needs all the votes he can beg, borrow or steal as his race against Sharon Angle is down to the wire neck and neck, and he may soon be unemployed (please G-d let it be so).The folks at La Raza (a pro immigrant advocacy group) seem to be of the opinion that passage of the Dream Act would build the momentum for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.I am still waiting for just one politician who can step up and define for us the term Comprehensive immigration reform, what the hell is that supposed to mean anyway?
A Ground Zero Mosque is Demanded—But Can Islam Itself Learn Tolerance? By Kelly O'Connell Sunday, September 12, 2010 If the devil wants in, he’ll get in.—Sons of Anarchy CANADA FREE PRESS
Why do major religions react in radically different ways to similar stimulus? For example, why would desecration of one religion’s holy books bring mostly shrugs, whereas another religion threatens armed conflict when their guru is spoofed? It is part of the modern American myth to accept that all religions teach the same thing, and lead to the same place.This patent falsehood can be traced to Joseph Campbell and like minds who helped spread this brain-numbing disease of universalism. But what is the organic source of Muslim rage? This issue must be raised by Western politicians and officials as we are increasingly forced to adapt to Muslim communities, beliefs and practices.It is unfair to ascribe unpleasant traits to an entire class of people that are shared by only part. But it would be suicidal for Americans to completely ignore the history and beliefs of a movement that is growing stronger, which has an explosive past, and that admittedly few understand. Of course to reduce all of Islam to anger and rage is a major error. But we must admit its adherents tend towards dramatic over-sensitivity to perceived slights. Yet, instead of making excuses for a trend that naturally saddens and makes us feel uncomfortable, we must accept Islam’s permanently aggrieved nature as a simple fact and then plan how to responsibly respond to future incidents. Along these lines, a few stories from the life of Mohammad will cast light upon the problem.
I. Multicultural Paradoxes
The recent threat by Florida pastor Terry Jones to burn copies of the Koran (aka Qur’an), versus imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s plan to build a Ground Zero mosque has produced an interesting study in contrasts. One cannot help but note the different standards used for the two situations. On the one hand, aggrieved Americans opposed to a Muslim religious center built on property cleared by Islamic terror have been advised to accept this as an act of good faith. But when a small-time pastor threatened to burn a copy of the Muslim holy book, Americans were again advised to be sensitive to the Muslim need to have their holy writ absolutely protected. Is this a contradiction, or an acceptable standard? It is interesting that Islam has been essentially given the status of a little brother when it acts up, and concessions appear to be perpetually made on its behalf. But there is nothing amusing about Fatwas being called out on authors, or seeing massive public prayer demonstrations made in public streets, or any of the various violent attacks made on Western sites in the last few decades.
It is obvious for Islam to be treated as an equal and looked upon with respect that it must live up to modern standards of religious practice. But let’s being honest—Muslims in Western countries are not going to repatriate to the Saudi Peninsula, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc because they are criticized by their neighbors. And undoubtedly, truth be known, these expatriate Muslims live better, safer and more privileged lives than they did in their Muslim home states. Therefore, these Western Muslims ought to be given every encouragement to liberalize and separate off from the violent old creed. This means we consider taking the time and initiative to engage these newcomers in discussions about American history, our religious ideals, and the beauties of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.But what explains the curious Muslim impetus towards violent reactions to what they regard as acts of impiety? A brief study of the life of Mohammad provides some suggestions.
II. Studied Revenge or Unpleasant Coincidence?
A few incidents from the life of Muhammad give an unsettling premonition into the tenor of tolerance of Islam as a whole. Peerless historian of Islam Alfred Guillaume, in his book Islam, tells of an early interaction between Muhammad and the Jews which has proved an unfortunate template for the history of the two. Also, Martin Ling, master of Sufi history, uses the earliest sources to describe the story of how Muhammad responded to a woman and old man who poked fun of him through poems.
A. Acts of Muhammad
After Muhammad heard the voice of Allah, and then began to preach to the pagans, Christians and Jews, he received much resistance against conversion. Driven from Mecca, he left on his Hijira, and came instruct the Jews elsewhere on his identity. Muhammad explained to them the fact he was the last prophet sent. When the Arab Jews realized he was not from the line of King David, nor even Jewish, as called for in Isaiah 9 regarding the Messiah, they apparently laughed in his face and scorned his claims as possibly the result of madness. Neither did the Jews throw in with his army. Muhammad never forgot or forgave this egregious act of impiety.When Muhammad finally conquered Mecca he took all the remaining Jews of Medina, dug an enormous pit and began the grisly holy work of beheading 800 Jewish men in the public square. Apparently this took an entire day and long into the evening. Then the women were passed off to the Muslims as concubines while the children were sold off into slavery.
An Evil Old Man & Wretched Poetesses:
According to both Martin Lings in his Muhammad, His Life Based On The Earliest Sources, and Alfred Guillaume’s translation of from the Sirat Rasul Allah by Ibn Ishaq (The Life of Muhammad), the founder of Islam was tormented by a young woman from Mecca, Asma bint Marwan. She had been putting out poetry criticizing Muhammad when he asked, in exasperation, Who will rid me of Marwan’s daughter? His follower Amayr b. Adiy al-Khatami went late at night to her house and ran a sword through her, having first pulled a suckling infant off her chest before the execution. When Muhammad heard of this brave feat the next day, he said, You have helped God and His Apostle, O Umayr! A very aged man, Abu Afak—purportedly over 100 years old, was also executed for lampooning Muhammad through poetry. He was killed by Salem b. Omayr after Muhammad heard of his verse and exclaimed, “Who will deal with this rascal for me?” Apparently, Asma Bint Marwan had heard of the old man’s execution which angered her into composing her own demeaning verses. Obviously, Muhammad did not accept criticism by poem.
B. Muslim Law & Tribalism: Lex Talionis
It would be impossible to overlook the strong element of Lex Talionis, or An eye for an eye justice at the root of the Koran. The composition of the Muslim law, or Shari’ah, is no mystery, according to unparalleled orientalist Joseph Schacht. He points out in his Introduction to Muslim Law that a strong element found within Shari’ah is tribal or pagan law. Some of the most savage aspects of the Shari’ah, including judicial amputations for theft, etc, which can be traced to this pagan code.One of the signal elements of Shari’ah is the fact that there appears to be no spirit of Natural Law in this code, meaning that punishments meted out centuries ago cannot be updated regardless of the barbarity. An example is the stoning of women, or lashing of apostates. Because this law is presented as perfect, it is not changed since one cannot update perfection.
The Koran (Qur’an) itself also calls for what appears violent acts and lawless deeds. As opposed to listing all the violent surahs (chapters), linked is a site where the reader might peruse them and decide for themselves whether these are the godly sentiments. If so, then we must decide how to integrate them into our society.
As one author writes,The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called hypocrites and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter. (continued)
D. Arab Psychology
According to Raphael Patai, in his book The Arab Mind, there are certain hallmarks of Arab and Muslim thought. First, is a belief that emotions cannot be held always in check, and that it is perfectly understandable when great anger or grief is unleashed. The result is a tendency to be overly emotional and offer blind loyalty to their causes. The scholar of Muslim society, Sania Hamady, in Temperament and Character of the Arabs, describes this as a balance between the quick-temper versus a typical sense of fatalistic resignation. Such outbursts of temper will strike most often in crowds and quite frequently include utter disregard for personal safety.
Patai also describes the Muslim tendency to attack randomly all foreigners when one group is initially targeted, a characteristic Middle East expert Bernard Lewis, in The Jews of Islam, claims represents a warring against all unbelievers, writing it was al-kufru millatun wahida ...ie the realm of the unbelievers is one nation. Patai also claims there is a deep-felt need in the Arab psyche for personal revenge, as characterized by the blood-feud, described by the phrase “Dam butlab dam,or Blood demands blood.” In fact, Patai describes this as one of the chief historic attributes of the Arab people, being a propensity towards strife and conflict, and the carrying of long grudges.
Obviously, the doctrine of jihad is enormously controversial, but a few general remarks are apropos. First, it has been claimed, ad nauseam, that… Islam is a religion of peace. What exactly this sentiment would mean to an Arab from the classical period (Ayyam al-Arab, aka the Days of the Arabs) would be hard to fathom. But we can at least note that ancient Arabia boasted a warrior ethos which other antiquated societies, like ancient Greece, also claimed. There was no pacifist movement in the ancient world, and any person suggesting such would have found themselves excluded very quickly from the protective environs of the tribe. As Michael Bonner writes in Jihad In Islamic History, Doctrines & Practice, Islam arose in an environment where warfare—or at any rate, armed violence with some kind of organization and planning—was characteristic of everyday life.And Islam, having never had a Reformation, still carries the warrior mentality in its ethos to this day.Second, and perhaps even more important, there was never a debate in ancient Islam about the “Just War” as developed by Saint Augustine, according to Bonner. The reason for this is quite easy to explain. Muslims followed Muhammad’s theory of God, not Christ’s. Islam does not value the notion of turning the other cheek, as Jesus taught. Instead, this society was seen as bathed in blood from ceaseless strife, struggle and warfare. A dichotomy was presented: There is a House of Peace (or Allah) and a House of War. All unbelievers live in the House of War, and therefore the House of God can attack the unbelievers at any time, justly. Therefore, a Muslim Just War has always been one which pitted Muslims against unbelievers.
III. 9/11 Mosques & Burnt Korans
What is more objectionable—building a Muslim outreach center where Muslim terrorists killed 3,000 Americans, or torching a copy of the Koran? Perhaps the question has no definitive answer, being a case of apples versus oranges. Instead, the query simply highlights the irony of the different responses of the two religions. While America is struggling to come to terms with what tolerance looks like for an ancient, violent creed we do not understand. Meanwhile, it seems the entire Muslim world is poised to leap into action at the slightest provocation, or the tiniest spark, as it were.America’s way has always been based upon various Christian theories of government and religious tolerance, since our founding. This raises an interesting question: Given the claim by both Christianity and Islam of having the last prophetic voice of mankind—can anyone imagine Jesus having 800 Pharisees or Sadducee Jews put to death for refusing to accept His religious claims? Further, is it even conceivable that Christ would have had an old man or pregnant woman with suckling babe on chest—slaughtered for writing insulting poems? Perhaps it is therefore time we ask American Muslims to filter their ideas about God and Muhammad through the lens of Jesus, who died nobly for others instead of killing for his reputation or beliefs, and yet whose Spirit lives in America. After all, good Muslims say they believe in Jesus.
Aristotle writes about the telos which is the direction in which a thing naturally moves. Could it be that Islam’s natural telos ~ at this point in time~ still moves towards the primitive and savage, being fixated on anger, revenge, over-reaction, and violence? If so, this still does not mean all Muslims tend towards violence, or that Islam cannot evolve. After all, isn’t it time Islam finally had its Reformation? Protestantism occurred about 1,500 years after Christ. Today it has been about 1,500 years since Muhammad preached. So the timing couldn’t be any better to turn over a new leaf, put aside violence, and embrace religious tolerance and civil society.Until Islam does have a genuine Reformation, and gives up physical attacks, sexism, and primitive punishments, the majority of Americans will have mixed feelings about the religion. Until then, can we perhaps find some failsafe (Fail-safe describes a feature which, in the event of failure, responds in a way that will cause no harm, or at least a minimum of harm…) way to keep a handle Islam’s surfeit of anger and violence? And what might a Failsafe Islam look like? One which is kept in check by legal and ethical guidelines, those acceptable for America’s traditions and rights based theory of the Good Life. Hopefully, time will tell soon enough.
CO2 and EPA’s Voodoo Science CANADA FREE PRESS By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is much maligned these days. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and their political proponents like to ascribe just about anything to climate change which, in turn, is supposedly caused by increased CO2 in the earth’s atmosphere. Governments around the globe are considering schemes to tax CO2 emissions. In order to have their people buy into such schemes, a steady barrage of claims has been unleashed upon the public, many of which bear little scientific scrutiny. One of the most misleading statements in this regard has been made by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which recently declared CO2 to be a dangerous pollutant. This is a prime example of how science has become politicized and distorted, certainly in regard to CO2.
CO2 level and sources
The atmosphere contains currently a bit less than 0.04% CO2. The rest is mainly oxygen (20%) and nitrogen (79%). Before the industrial age, CO2 in the atmosphere perhaps was more like 0.03%, although in pre-historic times, it was substantially higher. EPA claims that this increase of 0.01% or even just a part of it is causing undesirable climate change and may endanger public health and welfare. However, the scientific evidence for any of these consequences is lacking. Prior to mankind’s exponential growth, say 1,000 years ago, when the world population counted in the millions, compared to about 7 billion at present, essentially all CO2 in the atmosphere came from natural sources, primarily volcanic emission. Nearly every volcanic eruption emits large amounts of gases, magma and ash. Apart from steam (water vapour), the most common constituent of such gases is CO2. Moreover, the earth has many thousands of volcanic vents along some 60,000 km of tectonic rifts, both on land and under the sea, through which CO2-laden gas is being emitted more or less continuously. Even now, most of the CO2 in the atmosphere is from these natural sources.
Life and CO2
Nearly all life on earth depends on the presence of CO2 in the atmosphere. Without any CO2, the earth would be a barren place, like the moon, or our neighbouring planets, Venus and Mars. There would be no plant growing on land or in the water, nor any of the many animals in the water, on land or in the air. All these life forms on earth depend on the presence of CO2 in the atmosphere. The entire amount of carbon in all these life forms (including us humans) has been created from atmospheric CO2 via photosynthesis and taken up through the food chain. But this is not end of why we need CO2 in the atmosphere. Without CO2 and photosynthesis, there would be no oxygen to breathe. The entire world’s supply of free (molecular) oxygen has been created from CO2 via photosynthesis over the last three billion years or so.
Natural CO2 sinks
Contrary to the belief that CO2, once in the atmosphere, stays there for many years (the term used by EPA is long-lived), this is not the case. It is constantly being absorbed by water and plants on land. In the water is either becomes precipitated as calcium carbonate (limestone), or is taken up by algae and converted to plant matter. So, there is a dynamic equilibrium between the CO2 in the atmosphere and that in the water. The steady supply of CO2 to the atmosphere (mainly from volcanic emissions) and the consumption by plants keep it in balance. Overall, the result is termed a steady state. In a steady state, individual molecules are constantly being added and removed, but the overall balance reamins more or less constant. A simple calculation of mankind’s production of CO2 from fossil fuels shows that over the last one hundred years, if there were no natural removal processes, CO2 would have increased to approximately 100,000 parts per million, or 10% in the air. As the atmosphere contains only 0.04% CO2, it is obvious that this CO2 is no longer there. In fact, the CO2 level in the atmosphere has barely budged from pre-industrial times. This can only be explained by a strong natural removal process. Given the much larger concurrent CO2 emissions from natural sources, one can see that the oceans and plants on land are soaking up the atmospheric CO2 at a fast rate. Therefore, CO2 in the atmosphere is not long-lived. Furthermore, as the absorption rate of CO2 by the oceans is governed by the concentration gradient between the phases (air and water), a higher CO2 level in air results in a higher gradient and an increased rate of absorption by the water.
There are two main worries about the increasing CO2 levels in the atmosphere, as pronounced by the tax CO2 emissions camp. The first one is the unproven belief that it creates climate change. The second is the belief that it causes ocean acidification. The latter for sure is total bunk. The photosynthesis process in oceans converts the CO2 to neutral and basic (the opposite of acidic) materials. In terms of climate change, there are dozens of sophisticated computer models (running on super-computers) which claim to estimate the earth’s climate (past and present) from CO2 levels. None of these models can satisfactorily explain the natural temperature variations, ice ages, and other cooling and warming periods prior to man’s arrival or even over the last few hundred years. This is really not surprising, as the most important climate-influencing variable is not even part of these equations, namely the energy-transfer effects of water vapour in and out of the atmosphere.
It ought to be self-evident that CO2 is not only NOT a pollutant, but absolutely vital to life on earth. EPA’s decision to define it as a dangerous pollutant is contrary to all evidence and, frankly, mind-boggling. Even if the claimed increase of approximately 0.01% CO2 in our atmosphere over the last 100 years did have any weather and climate related effects – and that view is being challenged by many scientists – a higher CO2 level in the atmosphere fosters higher primary productivity and biomass generation by plants. Higher agricultural crop yields will follow from that and benefit the hungry world.Naming CO2 a dangerous pollutant is voodoo science.
