Leaks, Liars, and the New Political Weapon of Choice

The election of 2016 was won and lost in cyberspace, in the world of intelligence agencies, hacking, and leaks, and the war between the Globalists and their factional enemies continue there.

It always amuses me when terms and concepts once relegated to the realm of conspiracy theory and crackpots suddenly start popping up in the mainstream lexicon, words like “deep state,” “shadow government,” and “globalism” are suddenly appearing in headlines and being tossed around by those empty, talking heads on TV. The exposure of the global hidden hierarchy and power structure, and the family feud between Globalist hardliners like the Clintons and detentists like Kissinger, has shown us that the deep state hierarchy isn’t just vertically striated, but horizontally divided as well. This is, and has always been, a conflict between factions.

Which should mean that the dubious effort to prove that there is a vast, monolithic conspiracy should be coming to an end, as well as the hopeless search for that grand unified theory that can explain every event, every actor, every relationship, and all of history in one neat little package (IE “It’s the Freemasons!” or “It’s the Jews!”). Hopefully, alternative research will become a bit more nuanced with this turn of events, and the public conscious can get beyond the “conspiracy theory” marginalization term.

Because of these changes, this blog will change too. If the media has decided to inch closer to what I know to be the truth, then I will move further in that direction as well. This blog has briefly touched upon some very deep geopolitical topics like tectonic weaponry, the bearer bonds scandals, and the pedophilia rings currently being rounded up by the Trump administration, but those are just the tip of the iceberg. It is time to shed light on the deepest secrets of the Globalists, secrets like the Black Eagle Trust, the events going on in Antarctica, and what Joseph Farrel calls the “archaeology wars” between the US and German Globalists. Examining these oddities will demystify many of the seemingly nonsensical, arbitrary decisions of the Globalists, such as the Middle Eastern mission of widespread regime change.

But the subject of this post will be the fake media, and the official death of their influence as a manipulative PR tool. Their collective failure to manufacture the consent needed for a Hillary Clinton presidency showed that the age of mass media collusion and perception management has come to an end. The election of 2016 was won and lost in cyberspace, in the world of intelligence agencies, hacking, and leaks, and the war between the Globalists and their factional enemies continue there.

Perhaps the most readily apparent example of this new paradigm is the Rachel Maddow fiasco. Maddow’s “expose” of the President’s 2005 tax returns was a spectacular failure, and the current theory is that Trump himself furnished the returns as they were fairly benign. If true, she fell for what intelligence operatives call “chumming the waters” using black propaganda. But the question weighing on my mind is how she could have fallen for such a ruse. Maddow is intelligent, she is a graduate of Stanford, an Oxford Rhodes Scholar, and a Globalist propagandist on par with Ivy Lee and Joseph Goebbels. I am inclined to believe she chose suicide by Trump rather than trying to maintain the untenable position of a Globalist shill.

Without a Globalist administration to support them, the fake media have lost nearly all of their inside sources and have been relegated to the role of the outsider, and relying on leaks. Even worse, President Trump’s ability to circumvent the fake media has severely crippled their ability to control the narrative, which has sent the press into a frenzy. The Globalists know this as well, so the media has been tasked with pushing the Russian hacking conspiracy theory in an effort to distract Democrat voters from the disaster of 2016, and the continued rule of corporatist cronies like Schumer, Pelosi, and Perez. With their credibility in tatters, and public trust levels in single digit numbers, their job is to peddle wishful thinking to their dwindling, disillusioned audience in an effort to reunite the shattered left.

EU Globalists like Merkel in Germany have quickly recognized this new paradigm of weaponized leaks, and a particularly damaging leak of emails targeting Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Berat Albayrak exposed efforts to manipulate the Turkish press and social media as well as ties to ISIS oil smuggling via a firm called Powertrans. Albayrak happens to be the son-in-law of Turkish President/Dictator Recep Erdogan, and the leak has worsened the totalitarian, authoritative image of Turkey’s government. When a journalist from the German newspaper Die Welt began to report on it, he was arrested for disseminating terrorist propaganda.

As the spat between Ankara and Berlin becomes increasingly angry, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Deniz Yucel, a Die Welt reporter with dual nationality, a “German agent” and a member of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Erdogan says Yucel was a PKK plant with German support

Dictators have a habit of seeing spies around every corner, and the allegation may have just been a convenient excuse to silence dissent, but Erdogan would be right to anticipate a German/Globalist offensive in the theater of cyberspace. Relations between the two countries have finally hit rock bottom after the chain reaction of Brexit, and the rejection of unlimited, uncontrolled immigration meant that Syrian refugee flows would end in Turkey, placing an immense burden on the Turkish state. From there, relations between Turkey and the EU soured quickly.

Contrary to expectations, Turkey actually gained the upper hand by threatening to unleash migrants into a EU that no longer had the political will to accept them. And on more than one occasion, Erdogan threatened to unleash those migrants unless Turkey received some concession from Merkel and the Globalists. Ultimately, Turkey left the EU and the West altogether to join Russia and China in their BRICS system of finance and trade. The Chinese offered to build rail and highway infrastructure and promoted economic development. Pipeline deals between Russia and Turkey were finalized, and proposals were made to introduce Turkish agriculture to the rest of the Asian continent. In short, Russia and China had everything to offer Turkey while Merkel, the EU, and the Obama Administration had nothing.

And because Merkel has nothing to appeal to Erdogan, she has nothing to lose from attacking him, and burning down that already smoldering bridge. On the other hand, Merkel has everything to gain politically by distancing herself from a dictator who is very unpopular in Europe. Erdogan’s response was simply to arrest the journalist and accuse him of sedition, which is itself an interesting observation. Now we are presented with the question of what is to become of Globalist soft power strategy? Prior to President Trump, the fake media and NGO’s did most of the heavy lifting on behalf of the West, but now the press have discredited themselves and some very revealing leaks have some European leaders contemplating a ban of George Soros’ Open Societies NGO’s. As we have seen with Merkel and Erdogan, targeted leaking is only marginally successful in totalitarian states, so how will Globalists effect political change without starting a hot war?

And then there’s the Vault 7 leak, which was incredibly damaging to the CIA in that it revealed sources and methods. Add that to the damage that President Trump has already caused, and the Soft Power capabilities of the Globalists are almost nil.

So what do all of the talking heads have to say about this? Well, they are calling it a “new” type of warfare called Hybrid Warfare, which incorporates everything from economic inducement to full-blown military operations and the theater of cyberspace. In other words, its the old Soft Power Full Spectrum Dominance strategy but with more emphasis on cyberwarfare.

And if you are familiar with history, there is really nothing new about this multifaceted geopolitical strategy. The ancient Christian crusading orders of the Knights Templar and the Knights Hospitaller operated their own intelligence networks, ran their own independent financial systems, and were considered sovereign orders that worked for the Papacy and the Holy See to secure Palestine, but were not governed by them. The Knights Templar became so powerful, they were purged by Pope Clement V. Royally chartered mercantile companies such as the East India Company and in particular the Dutch East India Company also had their own intelligence networks and were essentially the technocrats of their day with an expertise in maritime navigation, ship building, and control over Asian trade. Thus began the strategies of large-scale economic inducement and cultural infiltration that continues to this day.

So perhaps it’s true what they say- there really is nothing new under the sun. Granted, cyberwarfare is relatively new, but the war of ideas stays the same no matter the technology or the medium. The invention of the printing press allowed the mass dissemination of ideas during the Protestant Reformation as well as the American Revolution, and it seems with the fall of the fake media and the rise of the internet, another new revolution has begun with the victory of President Trump. A global counterrevolution is taking place in Britain, France, Italy, and the Netherlands, and the Globalists are far, far behind the curve.

Weird Things: Pizzagate and Trump’s Scientist Uncle

When I first heard the mainstream media news outlets warning of “fake news,” I suspected something big was coming down the pipe.

If you thought things were getting weird leading up to the election, they just seem to get weirder. When I first heard the mainstream media news outlets warning of “fake news,” I suspected something big was coming down the pipe. Something so embarrassing or incriminating that the media had to find a replacement for their shopworn “conspiracy theory” marginalizing term to prep the populace.

Pizzagate

I suspect that big story may have originated from the thousands of documents leaked by Wikileak’s Podesta Emails. If you’ll remember, the Clinton campaign claimed that disinformation in the form of falsified emails were being intermixed with the contents of Podesta’s inbox in a scheme to smear Clinton. The campaign made that claim just before the Spirit Cooking incident surfaced and began trending, so I suspect that this “fake news” warning is a cover for Pizzagate, which has also come out of the Podesta leaks.

For many years, probably decades, there have been rumors that the very wealthy, very connected, and political classes were engaging, in an organized fashion, in the sexual abuse of children. In 2008, billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein plead guilty to offering sex with a minor, and Bill Clinton’s phone number was found in his contact book. The investigation also uncovered that Epstein would install hidden cameras to record his clients’ criminality for blackmail purposes.

In 2012, police in Britain initiated Operation Yewtree to investigate rumors of a pedophilia ring involving BBC employees. By 2015, six were charged with assaulting minors including four Television personalities, a medical doctor, and a publicist who used to work for The Beatles.

The most disturbing aspect of this already unsettling issue is the growing pile of dead bodies consisting of whistle blowers and prospective investigators following these pedophilia rings. Individuals like Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar, Max Spiers, Gary Caradori, Carole Kasir, and now a woman working for the Human Trafficking Center and investigating child abduction in Haiti, Monica Petersen, has been found dead a little over a week ago.

According to previously declassified FBI briefings, pedophile networks use code and symbolism to communicate their intentions. Common examples are a small heart encompassed by a larger heart, or a small triangle inside of a bigger one. With Pizzagate, the term “pizza” is supposedly code for sex with a minor, with various other food items to specify age and sex. Further investigation of the Podesta emails believed to be written in code lead to James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong in Washington DC and a former romantic partner of David Brock, the founder of Hillary’s Correct The Record Super PAC. A review of Alefantis’ Instagram account under the name jimmycomet revealed many picture entries of an explicitly sexual nature, which is very concerning since this is supposed to be a family establishment with games for children. Some pictures were of nude men with pizza covering their groin, a restrained child, a baby doll with a price tag, and a man wearing a shirt reading “I love children” in French.

So when a story like Pizzagate comes out, it’s not coming out of left field. There has been a history of pedophilia allegations with the elites, and it was only a matter of time until word got out. I suspect that organized activities like child sex rings, spirit cooking rituals, and even the collection of nude celebrity photos that were released during the Fappening point to a massive blackmail network being used by secret societies to keep their pawns from wandering off the Establishment reservation.

Dr. John G. Trump

In more weird news, we examine the President-elect’s uncle, who was a highly accomplished electrical engineer teaching at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Trump was known mostly for his work on very high-voltage machinery and his refinement of x-ray machines in the 1930’s, but during World War II, he was recruited by the National Defense Research Committee (NDRC), under the chairmanship of Vannevar Bush, to lead secret research into radar systems with British and American Scientists.

“But first, given [Donald] Trump’s tendency to wrap things in porcelain and gold and shoot sparks through them, it’s worth noting that John Trump really does seem to have been a brilliant scientist. He was at M.I.T. for decades, and the X-ray machines he helped design ‘provided additional years of life to cancer patients throughout the world,’ as the Times put it in his obituary, in 1985.”

Donald Trump’s Nuclear Uncle

But what is not mentioned is that Dr. Trump was already working under Bush before the the start of the war as a part of his graduate program at MIT. The two were quite familiar, and I believe that is why Bush gave Dr. Trump the highly-sensitive radar program. Considering that Vannevar Bush was, without a doubt, a trusted insider, he was allowed to initiate and oversee the beginning of America’s first black project- the Manhattan Project. So I am given to speculate if Dr. Trump, a brilliant mind around extremely high-voltage applications, may have been involved in any government black projects under the direction of Vannevar Bush. And I wonder if that work would have concerned the generation of power.

Could it be possible that, through family connections, President-elect Trump has been allowed to peak behind the black project curtain? Did he learn about something that made him adopt an energy policy to “pursue all forms of energy?”

If you’d like to know more about Dr. John Trump, here’s a nice video interview of him from the MIT vaults.

How Will Russia and China’s Asian Strategy Deal With Trump?

China’s proposal would include Australia, Japan, and India, aiming to govern and regulate 40% of the world’s trade.

President-elect Trump’s meeting this past Friday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may have been conducted in an unofficial capacity, but it should still worry the US’s rivals. Japan, growing nervous of China’s expansionism, has been cozying up to Russia, who views Japan as a potential ally, counterbalance and check to China’s growth in the Pacific.

Counterbalancing Chinese influence would be prudent as China is introducing their own free trade agreement, the RECP, in the wake of the political death of the Globalist TPP. China’s proposal would include Australia, Japan, and India, aiming to govern and regulate 40% of the world’s trade. The Chinese, who along with the Russians have been suffering from a severely compressed timeline for their operations due to the oil glut and economic sanctions, will have to speed up their operations even further as Trump’s protectionist tariffs could severely impact China’s exports. But I speculate that China’s military infrastructure in the South China Sea, the mechanism responsible for the enforcement of any prospective trade deal, will not be able keep pace with the speed up in negotiations and planning.

One possible indication of these forthcoming protectionist policies is a Congressional advisory commission’s annual report recommending that Congress block Chinese state-run firms from buying up American businesses.

“Carolyn Bartholomew, the Democratic-appointed vice chairman of the review commission, said that while China restricts foreign investment with laws banning foreign participation in large swaths of its economy, Chinese companies face no such obstacles in the U.S.”

Congress urged to bar U.S. acquisitions by China state firms

China is facing more severe, long-term problems in Trump, who wants to reorganize the world economy and renegotiate the Globalist trade deals that have benefited countries like China since the 90’s. Trump also doesn’t believe in the climate change apocalypse, calling it a Chinese plot. Although nobody can deny that the smog and pollution over Beijing is real, the Chinese are relying on climate change/rising sea level hysteria to fuel interest and investment in their renewable energy industry from island nations in the Southeast Pacific.

Heavily invested in technologies like solar, China has agreed to join Japan in a proposal to integrate the countries of the Pacific Rim into one massive electrical “super grid” running entirely on renewable energy. However, the project is a long-term infrastructure deal requiring huge amounts of fixed capital over the next 34 years, so nothing is set in stone at this time.

“The entire idea is contingent on ultra high voltage power transmission lines, thousands of miles operating at more than 1,000 kilovolts AC/800 kilovolts DC. High voltages reduce losses over long distances, and both Russia and Japan already have hundreds (in Russia’s case thousands) of miles of ultra high voltage lines up and running. These pale in comparison to China’s infrastructure; since 2009 China has built nearly 10,000 miles of UHV power lines, with about the same again to come online in the next two years.

.
“The larger GEIDCO’s interconnected web of renewable energy becomes, the more stable the supply is, because it’s less dependent on individual sources, so moving toward a global energy network that shares power from Greenland to South Africa, Australia to Switzerland is the ultimate goal.”

Asian “super grid” the first step towards a global, interconnected, renewable energy grid

In their mission to overturn the Western hegemony, Russia and China have split their duties to depress the US economy before ultimately shutting it out.

Russia and its Iranian allies have been using military force to exploit the US quagmire in the Middle East. By intervening in Syria and taking on ISIS, Russia looks like a stabilizing force and Putin accumulates political capital, which he uses to gain access to oil and business ventures in the Middle East and to form economic unions in Asia. Putin even cut oil deals with a disgruntled Israel, still upset over their treatment by the Obama administration and the Iran deal. By increasing their influence over world oil production, Russia can cut into the value of the petrodollar with their oil-ruble, and maybe end the oil glut which has stalled their economy.

On the other front, China’s offensives concern economic and monetary policy. Before the yuan was given reserve currency status by the IMF, it was being decoupled from the dollar’s exchange rate and strategically devalued to help China recover from their stock market crash and to slightly advantage Chinese exports at the expense of the US. Looking forward, the Chinese are developing technologies like the “super grid” to construct a framework for a renewable energy industry. The goal is to get in front of and shut out the US from dominating any forthcoming, Eco-friendly world energy market, designed to heavily favor green energy through policies that the Chinese and Globalists have been calling for. Policies like carbon taxes, carbon credits, carbon markets and their accompanying commodity games for Wall Street to play with.

But now, Trump, with his disregard for climate change and Globalist trade deals, will force them to fundamentally revise their strategies. Trump will have to step carefully as spoiling China’s green energy super grid plan could push the balance of power and world energy markets into the hands of Putin’s oil industry, or vice-versa. The President-elect said during his campaign speeches that he would invest in all forms of energy. That would be a good start.

A Mandate for President-Elect Trump

The protection of the US Constitution and human rights.

The restoration of American borders and the rule of law.

The establishment of close ties with the former members of the British Empire and the current members of the Commonwealth of Nations, and the economic reactivation of the commonwealth with the inclusion of the American economy.

The cultivation of close cultural ties with the Commonwealth of Nations, and all other English-speaking countries.

Decisive and continuous support for like-minded political movements in the West, and in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan in particular.

Continued engagement with the EU system and the European people.

The exploration and exploitation of “high-flying assets” as well as alternative sources of energy generation in addition to the currently-existing fossil fuel industry. I.E. forming a new financial framework without ceding world energy markets to Russia.

The breakup of the media conglomerate and the restoration of the Fourth Estate.

A restrengthening of the military.

The destruction of ISIS and other Jihadis, and the return of the US as the primary guarantor of security for the world.

Satellites, Pipelines Targeted in the Covert War Between the West and Russia

As this administration continues to struggle for control over pipelines in Syria and the Ukraine in an effort to deprive the Russians of the European oil market, they are now faced with a similar situation domestically.

While the currency war plays itself out on the world energy markets, the belligerents may now be exchanging blows directly, covertly, and regularly. In a previous article concerning President Obama’s executive order on space weather, I talked about the effects of geomagnetically induced currents on gas and oil pipelines, ostensibly as a result of solar flares and their coronal ejections hitting Earth. Large variations in the magnetic field of the planet can induce a direct current powerful enough to damage electronic monitoring systems and even corrode the walls of the pipe, resulting in a spill that may go undetected for days. I speculated that the executive order was actually a response to a developing covert war between the US and Russia using extremely advanced technology, and using the guise of natural disasters.

As this administration continues to struggle for control over pipelines in Syria and the Ukraine in an effort to deprive the Russians of the European oil market, they are now faced with a similar situation domestically. Protestors opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline have cited environmental contamination of drinking water as their primary concern, and have been met with attack dogs and heavily armed police officers in mine-resistant armored vehicles and humvees. Although an earlier injunction put a pause on the project, geopolitical circumstances dictate its completion.

The Colonial Pipeline running from Texas to New York experienced a leak on September 9, spilling 252,000 gallons of gasoline before the issue was detected two days later. On Halloween, an explosion several miles away from the site of the leak now threatens the supply of fuel to the East coast.

Oil Plummets, Pipeline Explosion To Drive Gas Prices Higher

Countries like Russia and Venezuela who have relied on oil exports have suffered from the low prices of the global oil glut, and OPEC has agreed to cut production slightly as even Saudi Arabia has begun to scratch the bottom of the financial barrel to diversify their economy. As I have said, any increase in oil prices is a win for Putin and the Russian oil-ruble, and I suspect that the Colonial pipeline incidents are not accidents.

Moving on to space, we have some more odd news.

Another U.S. Air Force weather satellite just broke up in orbit

Now, it’s easy to jump to conclusions in the present political atmosphere, and satellites are particularly prone to damage from space debris. The fact that three of these 20 year old weather monitoring satellites had finally fallen apart shouldn’t really come as a shock to anybody, but the devil is in the details.

“Air Force officials confirmed the breakup of the long-retired Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Flight 12 satellite (DMSP F-12) after the Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, detected an additional object orbiting alongside the 22-year-old satellite.”

So why would somebody go through all of the trouble of developing an elaborate anti-satellite system just to take out obsolete, retired satellites? And why attack a satellite when oil prices are a more urgent concern? Again, we must turn to Russia and China, and the BRICS system of international finance that they have been attempting to establish. In order to compete with the petrodollar, the IMF, the World Bank, and the current Western hegemony, the BRICS nations must develop their own versions of such institutions. Part of that financial framework necessitates the duplication of a global electronic payment system. Right now, there is only one international payment system, and it is run by Western firms like Visa and Mastercard. The satellites supporting this network were all launched by the US, and the whole system ultimately falls under the control of the Pentagon.

Although I don’t think the Russians or the Chinese have any plans to destroy American satellites outright, I do think this last incident was yet another warning in the political breakdown between East and West. Add to this the Russian rhetoric of “tectonic consequences” over US interference in Syria, and the mild earthquake in Crimea the day after Putin’s forces invaded, and what we seem to have is a shadow war in addition to the currency war being carried out in the oil prices. If both sides must continue silently firing these shots across each others bow, I can only wonder what would happen if one of those shots were to veer off course, and land directly in the opponent’s magazine.

Merkel’s Attack on the Internet Giants and the Growing Rift Between American and EU Globalists

Whether doing too much or doing too little, the social networks will never be able to please Merkel and her toadies in Brussels.

Angela Merkel, current Chancellor of Germany and the loneliest politician in the world, has recently accused the American internet giants Facebook and Google of using their search algorithms to create echo chambers and stifle public discourse in Europe.

Angela Merkel: internet search engines are ‘distorting perception’

All of which is ironic as the EU had just accused the big social networks of not involving themselves enough in public discourse. After the Paris Terror attacks, the EU developed a “code of conduct” agreement for Facebook, Google, Twitter and Microsoft pushing the censoring of racially-motivated and violent hate speech. At a 2015 U.N. development summit in New York, Merkel herself was caught on a hot mic pressuring Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to crack down on hate speech in his platform. Merkel and the EU’s multiculturalism and open borders ideology intentionally misconstrues a distrust and skepticism of unvetted refugees and migrants as racist, Islamophobic, and xenophobic hate speech. By allowing the migrants to flow unabetted, war and regime change in Syria and other middle eastern nations can continue. Popular support is needed to facilitate this.

There are many in Silicon Valley who readily identify with the Globalist mission. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg is actively assisting the Clinton campaign, hoping to become Treasury Secretary in a Clinton administration. Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has been working directly with Hillary’s campaign since October of 2014.

Twitter also gave into the pressure and formed the “Twitter Trust & Safety Council,” comprised mostly of Progressive organizations who have bought into the conflation of an actual western liberal concept of equality under the law with freedom from societal ills. This misconception legitimizes political correctness, accusations of hate speech, and various other pseudo-philosophical, pseudo-intellectual guilt tripping, shaming and bullyism. Ever since then, Twitter’s value as a company has been on a downward trajectory. The reality is, bureaucracy and regulation, no matter how well-intentioned, displace freedom. Constantly being afraid of having your message conflated with any kind of bigotry is not fun, it’s repressive and uncomfortable. Twitter is now laying off 9% of its employees and shutting down Vine.

End Of The Vine: Twitter Says It’s Closing Video App Amid Wider Layoffs

Whether doing too much or doing too little, the social networks will never be able to please Merkel and her toadies in Brussels. These bureaucrats can only do one thing- expand the bureaucracy, and now they are trying to bring the social networks into their top-down governance structure. The EU will continue to heap edicts and regulations onto social media in order to assert de facto control over them, otherwise they won’t be welcome in the Eurozone. Control over the discourse, not protecting it, is the goal.

Although they may be giants of the internet, social media firms are still treated like pawns on the global chessboard, and are getting caught up in the economic tug of war between American and EU Globalists. After the EU fined Apple $14.5 billion for corporate tax avoidance, the US Department of Justice levied a $14 billion fine against the slowly unraveling Deutsche Bank. The Apple fine was dropped, probably because the fall of a hugely over-leveraged Deutsche Bank would have triggered another global recession. It looks like tit-for-tat, and now these American social media networks are being treated more like interlopers than guests.

But I think Mark Zuckerberg has seen the writing on the wall and realized that some of these individuals, such as Sheryl Sandberg, are willing to use a business as a stepping stone to reach their own political ambitions, and will happily jump ship if Facebook starts to sink like Twitter. Although I’m not sure if Zuckerberg genuinely cares about open political discourse or the welfare of the American people, I do believe he knows better than to let ideologues twist and manipulate Facebook until it is politicized and broken. He knows that the Globalists like Merkel running the EU and Hillary running for President, have no personal stakes in his business. They view it, and him, as a tool. When Trump supporter Peter Thiel became the target of ostracism for making a political donation, Zuckerberg knew he had to make a decision and take a stand to decide the future of his company. His leaked internal message tells the story:

Obama’s Executive Order on “Space Weather” and the Escalation With Russia

Although many in the public see the nuclear ICBM as the ultimate weapon in any modern military arsenal, that is an outmoded attitude that has prevailed since the 1950’s.

On October 13, 2016, President Obama signed an executive order directing the Executive branch to prepare the US for the possibility of “solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances.” A slew of agencies and departments are being tasked with carrying out this preparatory measure.

Executive Order — Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events

“(i) The Secretaries of Defense, the Interior, Commerce, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security, along with the Administrator of NASA and the Director of [the National Science Foundation], shall work together, consistent with their ongoing activities, to develop models, observation systems, technologies, and approaches that inform and enhance national preparedness for the effects of space weather events, including how space weather events may affect critical infrastructure and change the threat landscape with respect to other hazards.”

Although scientists have not been particularly impressed with recent solar activity following the last solar peak of the 1990’s, large solar flares have hit Earth before. In 1859, a powerful coronal mass ejection created massive aurora effects around the world. Gold miners living in the Rocky Mountains woke up and began cooking breakfast, thinking it was morning. Telegraph equipment began shooting sparks while their operators were electrocuted. The amount of time that passed between the observation of the 1859 Carrington Flare and the ejection’s impact with the magnetosphere was 17.6 hours.

With less than a day’s notice to brace a country’s infrastructure and technology from a burst of electromagnetic energy, President Obama has taken on quite a task for the Executive branch. Although I do wonder why the President felt compelled to forego the support of Congress, who would have probably been amenable to some extent, and to relegate FEMA to a supporting role. For you see, there are many more, unexplained dangers other than simple power and internet outages that space weather and geomagnetic disturbances pose towards the national infrastructure.

The satellites that coordinate payment systems and military and private GPS services will be the first casualties. More disturbingly, geomagnetic storms can induce currents in oil pipeline systems, causing their steel to corrode and fail. Electrical damage to control and monitoring systems can allow a breach in the pipeline and oil spills to go unnoticed. I believe that it is this concern over environmental contamination and a loss in oil production, that President Obama is particularly worried about, and I believe that the President’s concerns are not arbitrary in nature. It’s my opinion that the US and Russia have already begun to exchange very subtle but decisive blows in the developing currency war.

Although many in the public see the nuclear ICBM as the ultimate weapon in any modern military arsenal, that is an outmoded attitude that has prevailed since the 1950’s. The eventuality of technological parity, accelerated by Soviet moles, made the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction, and the nuclear standoff, all but predictable. Therefore, any oligarch with an eye towards world domination would have understood the need to move beyond tip-toeing around nuclear warheads to complete their geopolitical objectives. But since those nukes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and are instead multiplying, any new offensive strategy would have to be implicitly covert.

A look at the recent rhetoric and saber rattling between Russia and the US may be revealing in this aspect. After the breakdown of the ill-fated truce in Syria, and after Assad’s army restarted the Aleppo campaign, many small earthquakes of an unusual nature were detected along the San Andreas fault line in California. Days later, Russia issued a warning to the US.

Russia says U.S. ‘aggression’ in Syria would mean ‘tectonic shifts’

Scientists in California just discovered a new type of earthquake

What better cover than mother nature? Throw some ambiguous climate change speculation on top of that and you have some pretty solid plausible deniability. Looking at some other very timely earthquakes, it would appear that Russia is not the only one capable of such chicanery. On March 1, 2014, thousands of Russian soldiers poured over the Russian-Ukrainian border as Ukrainian protestors took the streets to reject the legitimacy of both the Soros-backed Euromaidan faction and the pro-Russia administration under democratically-elected Viktor Yanukovych. The very next day, a magnitude 4.1 earthquake hit Crimea.

Ukraine Says Thousands of Russian Troops Have Crossed Border

Moderate earthquake – Crimea Region, Ukraine on March 2, 2014

And now,

Scientists Claim Crimea Is Literally Moving Closer to Russia

“Experts from Russia’s Academy of Science (RAN) claim that Crimea as a land mass has physically been moving towards Russia since 2014, when Moscow held an internationally unrecognized vote to take control of the peninsula.”

The stated referendum occurred on March 16, 2014, two weeks after the Crimean earthquake.

If there is a shadow war going on between the US and Russia, then President Obama would recognize an electromagnetic attack on oil pipelines as a major weakness for the US. If you’ve kept up with Russia, you know that Putin and his oil-rubin are dependent on oil sales to keep the Russian economy moving, and the recent oil glut has done serious damage to Russian growth. Any attempt to cut oil production and increase oil prices is a win for Russia, and Obama is already facing fierce resistance to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for exactly that reason – the potential for environmental contamination.
