Cosmic Warfare

TO MINE ASTEROIDS, OR GO TO MARS, THAT IS NOT THE QUESTION. THE ...

It was bound to happen sooner or later: as people are homeless, as banksters and Wall Street weasels run roughshod over the people, Congressional Dummycrooks and Republithugs are debating over the Obama administration's proposal to mine asteroids. In short, we're being subjected to more cosmic-theater, colmplete with cute drawings of rockets with gigantic coffee cups, to snare an asteroid for mining:

Plan to Capture an Asteroid Runs Into Politics

Why do I think this is theater? Well, let me clarify one thing. I don't think mining asteroids is theater, nor the idea of Moon bases and Martian missions. Eventually, all three will happen.

But to make them cost effective, especially that bit of mining asteroids, is the real question, and I just don't see that being done with rockets. What is apparent is that there is a move afoot to make that "space collateralization" I have been proposing since my first blogs about the Bearer Bonds Scandals a reality. What was being hinted at only years ago is now a matter of public debate in Congress.

My reasoning - which I clarify and detail in my forthcoming Covert Wars and Clash of Civilizations - is rather simple, and once again, I take Venice as our model. Suppose one is confronted by three enemies simultaneously. One hidden somewhere in the world with a base of operations, and with many known and presumed tentacles into your own state(Nazis). Then a massive enemy to the east (Communist Russia, or in Venice's case, Turks), and finally, a threat not from this world at all. One would want a technological response to all three enemies at the same time, and this implies a response to the greatest threat would be developed, and that would require immense and secure financing. The barter, in this case, is rather simple: the banksters finance the fleets, for a share in the profits of their voyages. They assume part of the risk. This, I believe, is the real story behind the asteroid mining story, and as is evident, the story comes from the black world, from the breakaway group.

Which means the public debate now, over what to fund in the overt program, is more likely a debate about how much has to be shuffled and rehypothecated from the public budget to the leveraged black budget. My bet is that they will go for both the Mars-Moon option, and the mining option.  The how - rockets - is never in view.

But this suggests a clue of what to watch for to indicate they are really serious: if and when someone in the Grand Counci...er... the Congress, whether the Senate or House of Non-Representatives, asks the questions: "Yes Mr. NASA director, but are rockets really cost effective?..." Answer: no, but they're all we have, and its going to take billions to fund it. Rest assured, those billions will be used to create the trillions in the black budget that will make the real technologies, that will enable these things to get done, possible.

See you on the flip side.

  1. The question is are the NASA photos of pyramids and faces on Mars real?
    How did they get there, who designed them.

    On a interesting note, in gullivers travel it describes the 2 moons of Mars and there peculiar orbits, some 90 years before they were discovered.

    Now before anyone falls for this jedi mind trick, perhaps the in the know crowd has been in the know for quite some time.

    1. why did they put a M in front of the ancient word for Mars? Could it have something to do with 13?

  2. NASA has just published an inventory/map showing the orbital paths of 1,400 nearby asteroids. Not considered to be ‘worrisome’ for the next 100 years, they are being tracked for future approaches. Now that would be handy information to have if one is wanting to capture asteroids for mining. Maybe they’ve already been named and ‘claimed’ …

  3. We would have been mining the asteroid belt and been manufacturing in space in the 80’s if the Kennedys would have lived.

    They are also interested in Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.
    Whether its encountering pyramid shaped alien object near Titan or a supposed relocation of human survivors to Titan in the new Tom Cruise movie Oblivion, or the discovery of “DNA” shaped alien object while mining on Titan in Dead Space universe.
    The common theme is the there are human activity on the largest moon of Saturn and the ultimate prize is something “alien” and “deadly”.

  5. If there wasn’t anyone on the side of the people, things would be a lot worse than they are now. Not seemingly comforting, but it makes sense if you think about it.

    Also, we should all be in support of a new age of “American East Cydonian Company” or “Dutch Venusian Bay Company” exploration because these enterprises will need a lot of manpower and that means a ticket to the New Worlds, which was the only way this experiment in human liberty went as far as it did in the past 200+ years. My cynical view of where this world is going makes the prospect of having a new planet to escape to the most appealing one. We may not live to take advantage of it, but our grandkids just might. Sure, the backers of this will be selfish, but use their enterprises to gain access to the stars and there’s an even more expansive “sea” to escape from their clutches.

  6. The NYT article was unavailable blocked for some reason so I couldn’t read it. If these clowns know rockets are a dead end why do they go on designing and building them wasting time and money . Go to a better propulsion system forty years running around like chicken with no head. We should have been exploring the whole solar system by now. Never A Strait Answer dog and pony show continues get to work people and by the way the USA should stop once and for all those stupid wars it has and will be fighting.

    Since the government has been turned into an elaborate privatized stamp: APPROVED!
    I wonder, is anyone in government, approved beyond a “need-to-know” basis?
    Besides being blackmailed, bought out, compromised, ect.,
    ….is there anybody in government’s congress, senate, president; left, …in-the-know,
    and on the side of the people?
