The always interesting Russian television English language service is proving, once again, to be a source of information their counterparts in the West do not want to talk about for some reason.

Secret Space Hotel plans unearthed

Of course, we've seen confident space predictions before that never came true, and there is an aura of good old Soviet-era propaganda hovering over this article. And to be sure, the Russians would seem only too eager and willing to take the money of wealthy Westerners for a few days in outer space. I won't be joining them for three reasons. First, I'm a sufferer of vertigo, and being surrounded by vacuum and a three-hundred plus mile drop back to earth in a rickety Soyuz space capsule at 4G is not my idea of a good time(Thanks guys, but I'll wait for the carbon nanotube elevator). Second, I am not, obviously, wealthy enough to afford the trip. And finally, my ears don't pressurize well enough, making any airplane trip a nightmare, not to mention a trip in space.

But something about this hotel disturbs, and I am all too readily reminded of the statements in the Old Testament pseudepigrapha that the "elite" of the day hightailed it off the Earth prior to the Flood and the decision of the gods, or "god" to wipe out mankind. Well, so the story goes, once "up there" in the meridian of high heaven, they looked down on the Earth and the destruction below and, so we're told, some of them actually wept. It has about it the discomforting ring of Alternative Three, the nutty "tv documentary" produced by ITV in Britain in the late 1970s and early 1980s, an April fool's day joke about the kidnapping of scientists for a "secret space program" that would allow the world's elite to hightail it off this planet before global environmental catastrophe overtook us all and doomed the human race. According to that modern day pseudepigraphal story, colonies were already established on the Moon and Mars.

Well, one small Russian private space hotel is a far cry from the Old Testament pseudepigrapha or ITV's Alternative Three. But what gives me pause - and perhaps it gives you pause too - is that the basic meme of each story is present in this article, with the exception of the idea that this platform would function as some kind of life-boat for the apocalypse. It does make one wonder just exactly what is going on up there, and how many such platforms may already be in existence. I am one of those who believes - not without some justification I think - that the technological capabilities of the world's various powers, Russia and the United States in particular, somewhat exceeds the capabilities of chemical rockets and their limited lift capabilities. Assuming the existence of such alternative technologies does indeed raise the specter of "space hotels" for the elites in possession and control of such technologies. And that possession in turn means, of course, that the other memes of ancient stories and modern myths might indeed be on their minds.

So why would the Russians release such a story? Well, like everything else in the media, I tend to be cynical to the point of jaundice, perhaps a bit less cynical to RT TV than to our western "sources" of "information." But let us be clear, RT TV is a propaganda arm of the Russian government, and they know very well the structure and designs of the Western elite. Perhaps, then, this is less a story, then a message...

    There is lots of evidence that they are planning their escape,
    not UP, but Down.
    Yes, they are going to hell.

    THEY have been spending TRILLIONS in the last several decades
    boring tunnels and (somewhat) plush, but small accomodations
    {read—–BUNKERS} throughout the lower earth’s crust all
    over the WORLD (at least enough to sell some) and plan on ‘leaving sometime in the spring.

    12/21/12 anyone(?)
    THEY seem to believe the date is a dire message.

    Then there’s the part of Sagan’s “Contact” where the wealthy industrialist escapes to the Soviet space station………..

    As Scaled Composites has shown, even a small outfit with fairly small funding can build a viable space plane with off-the-shelf technology. What could a billion dollars a year do over 30 years? Even if one doesn’t include new technology (which I believe exists), WAY more can be done with standard tech than they are doing in public view.

    The idea that there is NOT a secret space program is too silly to even consider. In fact, we know for a fact there is one, we just don’t know what all exists beyond spy satellites and smaller weapons.

    I still lean towards an SG-1 type situation as far as the technology goes. I think that there are probably many outposts in space around the planet, and perhaps farther out. I was a member of the L-5 Society a few decades back, and they had some pretty viable plans for Apollo/Shuttle era technology. I should dig out some of that old material – might be interesting.

    Carbon nanotube elevator? No thanks, I’d rather ride a vehicle with unlimited power, local gravity field, and non-Microsoft computer tech……

    And I, too, have dealt with vertigo (had to give up flying – pilots don’t do well with vertigo), so I sympathize.

    I remember reading over twenty-five years that Hilton had a space hotel designed and ready to go and was only waiting for launch weight per pound to go down before building it. Dennis Tito, and international banksters wearing $100,000 watches proves that that was a load of terrestrial bovine excrement.

    I suspect that there has been a network of “space hotels” in orbit around Earth for quite some years. Perhaps one of the ways the Looters get certain people to toe the line is to secretly take them into space and show them a peek of what really goes on.

    To me the Russian article, while worthy of mention, is nothing but more confetti: “The appearance of reality FOR reality.”

      “launch weight per pound” should read “launch weight dollars per pound”

    Are you familiar with the mockumentry dark side of the moon? The new generations Alternative 3?

    I can’t help but think of some slightly disgruntled non-elites left on the planet thinking “Hmm, all those elites in one place. Do we have any of those space based missile platforms left?” Imagine just redirecting some of the many thousands of satellites in orbit to crash thru the grand atrium of the hotel? Nothing like giving them a taste of depressurizing firsthand.

      MQ, that comment sure put a smile on my face! =D

      I think similar thoughts whenever Bohemian Grove or the Bilderberg meet.

    i agree all too readily, perhaps…
    I wrote a song about this way back in 1980 and got my album sat on. I didn’t realize why at the time of course, as I’d assumed the guy sponsoring my work then was all for such information being looked at etc Since though I’ve found out his Dad was a …how shall we put it? Assett? lol
    Therefore he too , I’ve since albeit inadvertently realized (ouch) I was unwittingly/naively embarrassing him with his er, connections that I had no idea of at the time. Who needs to make this stuff up eh?

    Anyways…the song was about a more modern version of the ark floating away and holding folk of the self proclaimed elite, while the poor who were perhaps inheriting the earth , but not in the way they bargained on , were creamed back down on the planets surface during the pole reversal event or whatever it was or is.
    The song was anything but as pompous as it sounds, but the subject matter than even I thought at the time was probably or might just be, a bit of sci fi theory lol…was the same.
    Now of course, even the likes of supposedly good old Mr Branson, the peoples millionaire lol is building his own rocket and test flying it. Although of course, it is presented as if he is just a kind of modern day adventurer or innovator/entreprenour ala …ooo…whats his name Howard Hughes? Yeah, a sort of ‘free market’ daredevil expeditionary type or whatever the word is that just won’t come to me lol Sorry, senior moments are becoming senior 24/7’s these days lol

    Yes, RT just can’t resist having a little fun with the Rockyfuggers and Rothchilds perhaps….

    Here’s a website that makes me wonder about what is really up there.

      Nice link, THANKS!

    “[Fi]irst guests in 2016”–yeah right. And food delivery rockets? They never go off course.
