Last week I posted a short blog about NASA director Bolden's preparedness speech and it caused quite a bit of commentary, and in view of tomorrow's video-conference roundtable with Camelot's Kerry Cassidy, Richard C. Hoagland, and others, I wanted to re-visit the speech in a wider context. Many commented that Bolden's speech could be taken as nothing but typical government bureaucratese. Indeed, it could be so taken.

However, what I found very interesting in Bolden's speech was not only his careful choice of words referring to a NASA presence "off planet" but also his reference to a threat from "outside," a word which in the context of the "off planet" remark uttered earlier, takes on a rather interesting interpretive possibility, for in the context of Bolden's reference to 9/11, a reference to "terrorism" or even "foreign terrorism" would make more sense than a threat from "outside."

What is interesting, in this respect, is to compare Bolden's carefully-chosen and suggestive words, with President Ronald Reagan's sudden change of rhetoric from the Soviet Union, to alien threats from outer space. On Nov 19, 1985, during a toast for the visiting Soviet leader and his team, Reagan made a curious remark: "that if the people of the world were to find out that there was some alien life form that was going to attack the Earth approaching on Halley’s Comet, then that knowledge would unite all the peoples of the world.”

Reagan's then-counterpart, Soviet Communist Party General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev confirmed, in a speech at the Grand Palace in the Kremlin on Feb 16, 1987, that Reagan had brought up the possibility of "alien intervention" to Mr. Gorbachev at their summit in Geneva.

Of course, the most famous example of President Reagan's alien-threat message was given to the United Nations General Assembly, where it could not help but attract global attention: “In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside of this world. And yet I ask — is not an alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the universal aspiration of our people than war and the threat of war?” (Emphasis added). It is intriguing, if not suggestive, that President Reagan's choice of words, a "threat from outside of this world" are so similar to director Bolden's "outside threat," and that raises the possibility that Bolden - the director of the space agency after all - was deliberately evoking Reagan's comment.

    I can’t find my post on NEO 2011MD. I wanted to add this
    and I hope it all goes through for link as I am not well liked by
    ………….and so have lots of gremlins in my PC.
    Now that the ‘story’ has broken.
    More explicit info here if no one really got (understood) what I posted.
    Seemed not to anyway as it says a LOT to anyone familiar with the science.

      I don’t doubt that it WAS an asteroid,
      but in other words, it was under control !!!

    What the jerks who put this crap out is that if this reallly happen there wouldn’t be humans who prefer the aliens to them they know their fellow humans whose tyranny they know all to well and quite rightly might feel that they get a better deal from the aliens so the idea we all unite behind them they are living in a dream world.and should wake up.

    I still don’t see anything special about last weeks NASA preparedness speech, I tend to be an opened minded skeptical type after too many years of conspiracy/ alien abduction hysteria with very little physical evidence to back it up.

    Now Carol Roslin did get my attention, after all she did know and work
    With Werner VonBraun who was an actual real living person with very interesting
    Connection to a very mysterious past.

    Otherwise this is more propaganda.

    Since the Global Smarming hoax has not done well, it may be time for them to try the alien card. It is interesting that much of what Carol Rosen has said that she was told by Von Braun is floating around in various forms.

    You can bet that the elites are monitoring the “receptivity” of the public on the various scnearios which they might use for the final plunge – aliens, asteroids, and global smarming. From time to time, there are clusters of movies and speeches that come out around these various topics.

    Of course, the “slips” themselves are probably part of the plan – create anticipation and have the “alternative” community start buzzing with speculation about the hidden meaning of such things. They are also watching to see if anything gets traction in that arena.

    I have been thinking that the phony ‘alien invasion’ scenario will be used as the final sleight-of-hand trick to install the world government. After so much work, over such a long period, it makes a sick kind if sense that this could and would be used to misdirect our emotions. It is my feeling that at the same moment the world is mobilizing together, the last thing anyone would expect would be this behind-the-scenes maneuvering to finally and completely install their world government. Let’s all hope that Joseph is right that as this moment draws nearer and nearer, cracks are appearing in the facade of their plans!

    • Mel Hatfield on June 23, 2011 at 11:45 pm

      I agree, Matt. This very thought of “using” the “outside threat” as a means of “misdirecting our emotions” towards a One World Order as a defensive cause for otherwise unwise unification. So much uncertainity exists if is getting difficult to map a trail of probability for the future.

      One must remain agile in thought and reason to survive in times such as this. Our compassion for our fellow man, demands this. Personal opinions must be adjusted constantly to incoroprate new event inputs. The scripture comes to mind: “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” Matthew 10:16, King James Version

    Well, we have had for our veiwing pleasure over the last few months: V, the Event, Falling Skies, plus the movie channels rerunning Independence Day and Battlefield Earth just to name a few. Even Sanctuary is getting in on the act with invasion from Hollow Earth. Getting people use to the idea of invasion and taking out a large number of the population? Just a thought.

    • Phil in the Atl on June 23, 2011 at 7:12 am

      Yes, I’ve noticed the same thing and kind of thought it odd that so many of these movies and shows were turning up again in such numbers. Perhaps Project Blue Beam is about to debut?
