This one, folks, is one I simply have to talk about, no matter how kooky it may sound. Many readers of this site live in Australia, and that country is having one of its most fierce heatwaves in almost eight decades. For that story, see, for example, this article by the UK's Guardian:

Comment is free Heatwave: Australia's new weather demands a new politics

It isn't so much theheat wave that caught my attention, but this article - containing some high octane speculation - that was sent to me by a few of you, including some of you in Australia:

Pine Gap (Cooler Than Area 51) – Causing Record Setting Australian Temps (Right Over Base) Read more at

Now, normally, I wouldn't give such an article much time, except for the fact that Pine Gap really is as mysterious as the article makes it out to be: Australians are not allowed inside (nor for that matter, is anyone else), andno one really knows for sure what goes on inside - or under - it.  Nor, really, would I give much attention to claims such as these:

"In the book Cosmic Conspiracy by Stan Deyo, he writes that Pine Gap is 12 miles from the dead centre of Australia and has been drilled down 5.3 miles. This bore could be used as an underground antenna for VLF electricity broadcasts. He says as it is supposed to be involved in both upper atmospheric sub-surface research, the ‘bore antenna’ could be used to tune a gigantic ‘standing wave’ field around the entire planet.

"This system could be tuned to set up a resonating electric field around the planet to an altitude of 250 miles. The book says that there are rumors saying that Pine Gap has a very large nuclear facility used to power its enormous ‘transceiver’. More rumors say also high-voltage high-energy plasma accelerators possibly for power generation, a ‘death ray’ or plasma cannon."

Now, I have no idea if indeed there is a VLF antenna extending into the earth for some fives miles beneath Pine Gap, nor if it is being used "to set up a resonating electric field around the planet" nor if it has nuclear reactors for firing up Independence Day-style plasma cannon or not. Nor, of course, have I any idea if the high heat over that continent is due to Pine Gap or not, though I do find it one of those "highly coincidental" things that the heat plume over the continent seems at times to be oddly parked...
We're told that the facility is nothing more than a "satellite tracking facility."  Uh huh... This from the same people that gave us the swamp gas explanation for UFOs and the Magic Bullet explanation for JFK.... So, given the remoteness of the installation, it would make sense for it to be the site of something more than satellite tracking. After all, there's no big secret to tracking satellites that the Australians don't know (unless, of course, it's satellites that shouldn't be there full of things they shouldn't be carrying doing things they shouldn't be doing).  So could there be something more? Are some in Australia right to suspect a connection between their weird weather and what may be going on in Pine Gap?
I think so, and for a strange reason: Central and Western Australia have been the scenes of some very strange goings on, some of which, even given the sparse population densities of those places, have had witnesses. One of these I reported on in Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, the Kalgoorlie fireball, which, as it turns out, had a possible connection to Japanese yakuza and the strange Aum sinru kyo cult. Why mention this strange incident in this context? Because, as some researchers have pointed out, sitings of such fireballs and ball lightning over faults often precedes earthquakes, and the sighting in this instance indicates human players, and human technologies.
So what, in the final analysis is my suspicion? It is this: I suspect that the theorists may be on to something, that there is more going on at the facility - much more - than we're being told. But I suspect that it is not to be construed as a closed system, but rather, that whatever is going on at Pine Gap, be be an integral part of a much bigger system, and a much bigger story, one that would include, for example, HAARP and other such ionospheric heaters... a powerful combination: phase arrays, and deep-earth VLF antennae...  kinda sorta maybe perhaps like Tesla's Wardenclyffe, but on a truly global scale...
...which raises its own questions: Why build a system that large...?
See you on the flip side.
