MEANWHILE, UP IN SPACE: UN SPONSORING ASTEROID DEFENSE: HIGH OCTANE ...
We've been watching the development of space stories, beginning with the theme of asteroid mining as an example of space collateralization, and more recently, the revelation of technologies intended for the militarization of space. In the hypothesis I've been proposing, the process of collateralizing space began shortly after WW2, and coincident with the founding of the national securitty state in 1947, and the hidden system of finance based on recovered Axis loot established and made top secret by President Truman. With collateralization and commercialization inevitably comes the militarization of space, as technologies must be developed to defend the expanding human frontier from "whomever." As I've also pointed out, the technologies to mine asteroids are conveniently also the same ones that could conceivable blast them apart, as with the story of the Japanese "space cannon" that I blogged about a few days ago.
Now that effort is being raised to the international level, notwithstanding conflicts of geopolitical interests on Earth:
United Nations to Lead Efforts to Defend Earth from Asteroids
Asteroid Threat, Earth, and the United Nations
Russia and the USA Eye a Teamup to Massive Nuke to Save the Planet from an Asteroid
So let's indulge in our trademark high octane speculation here: why the need for international cooperation? There are, of course, the obvious reasons: an effective system of planetary defense will inevitably require a massive near-space tracking and cataloging effort, and the ability to destroy threatening objects, and this is best done as a cooperative effort among the world's space powers(the USA, Russia, China, the European powers, India, Brazil). But I submit there is a less obvious reason, but one that is just as important in the calculus of "cosmo-politics".
Suppose, just suppose, that there are "others" out there, and, as all indicators suggest, "they" have been closely watching Earth since WW2, and have displayed an inordinate curiosity and concern over our growing technological capability, particularly with respect to nuclear weapons. As I have argued in my most recent book, Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations, humanity entered a "Tower of Babel Moment" of history at the end of WW2, when there was a clear though subtle threat implied by UFOs. Then, during the space race, President Kennedy and Soviet premier Nikita Krushchev came very close to "teaming up" for a Moon mission. This, according to some, was a scenario deliberately sabotaged by the JFK assassination. That is to say, the prevention of such a joint effort was one possible underlying motivation for the murder of the President (and, lest we forget, of the ouster of Krushchev from power not long after that). This is a scenario that I am inclined to agree with in some respects. Then, as the late Lt. Col. Philip Corso advanced in his now famous The Day After Roswell, the USA managed to "stalemate" the pesky UFOs during the 1980-1990 era. Again, notwithstanding massive problems with Corso's work pointed out by other researchers and by me, I am inclined to assign to this assertion some degree or kernel of truth.
All of these considerations are the necessary background that indicate that something in the strategic "cosmo-political calculus" has now changed. The cooperation unthinkable in the 1960s is now perceived as a quiet but urgent long term strategic necessity. There are aspects of the Chelyabinsk meteor that others have suggested were indicative of an event that was not entirely natural in character, and again, I am inclined to entertain the hypothesis. On that basis then, someone was sending someone else some messages. And with the possibility that the meteor's destruction may also have been not entirely natural, then yet another message was being sent by someone to someone else.
Putting all of this into perspective then, one ends up with the high octane speculation: as humanity is poised to expand its presence considerably in near Earth space via commercial activities, and as such expansion inevitably implies a militarization of space to protect those activities from "whomever", the need for an international effort is not only geopolitical, and financial in nature (to spread the burden and make such effort more "cost effective"), there is also a cosmo-political reason: to present to "whomever" the picture of a united planetary political will, purpose, and instrumentality, notwithstanding local national interests. And at the minimum, such a "potential threat" also constitutes a convenient vehicle by which to leverage the transition to a global federation, for the purpose of planetary defense. After all, this was also the logic behind the adoption of the current US Federal constitution, and it was also the meme promoted by the elite of the moment to achieve it, since, at the time, the major global powers of the day - France and England - had no intentions of invading the small republic. But the potential was there, and became a reality in the War of 1812.
The calculus of terrestrial politics is poised to change dramatically, if this whole scenario be true.
And as most of the readers here know by know, the asteroid defense plan was the penultimate stage in the Von Braun-Rosin allegations of the arguments that would be advanced for space militarization. First Communism, then terrorists, then nations of concern, then asteroids, and finally, "the others," extraterrestrials.
As a reader here put it in a comment on a previous blog, we're now at about "half past asteroid" on the Von Braun clock.
See you on the flip side.

I’m no chemist, and due to budget cuts, I didn’t get much of a science education in high school, but if I were a class 2 or class 3 civilization, like our breakaway civilization may be, and worried about returning aliens and more tower of babel moments, or if I just wanted to live an undisturbed existence on the outer reaches of the galaxy, I would dispense with the energy or projectile throwing space defense systems and opt for burrowing into Earth and then enveloping planet Earth in a sea of impenetrable gas hundreds of thousands of miles thick. I would then fill this gas ocean with giant gas creatures miles long who would be tasked with defending the perimeter from plasma beings and other invading aliens. The only entrance and exit would be a giant swirling cyclone storm that I I could shut off at will when it came time to steer ships, moons, and even the Earth itself in and out of the protective gas. And in keeping with American tradition, I would make this swirling vortex storm door red in color. A dual purpose of the gas sheath would be to serve as protection from those random solar outbursts and those toxic stellar gas clouds which invade our solar system from time to time.
Could a rocky planet survive in such a protective gas sheath? I believe the scientists are now saying ‘yes.”
“the story of the Japanese “space cannon” that I blogged about a few days ago.”
The Japanese “space cannon” thing ‘coincided’ with the first “2+2 talks” between Russia and Japan which just happened recently. While the Japanese presses seem to have a ‘local perspective’ on the first-ever joint conference between defense and foreign ministers of the two countries, the Russian press seem to have other focuses, as Russia seems more ‘concerned’ with “US missile defense network in Japan” and “cyber-security”.
comparing Japanese source,
“Meanwhile, China is ramping up its efforts to become a maritime power and taking a hard-line stance in waters around the Senkaku Islands and the South China Sea. The country has also taken an interest in the Arctic, irritating Russia. In that sense, a closer security partnership of Japan and Russia is also significant as a means to put pressure on China.”
with RT’s report:
‘A new page’: Russia, Japan hold first 2+2 talks, aim to boost military cooperation.
Another ‘coincidence’ is while the Russians have a “2+2 talks” with the Japanese, (a sort of which rather recalls their ‘2+2 talks’ with the U.S. during the recent “Syrian crisis”, implying perhaps the meeting with Japan is also of the nature of an “urgency”) NATO is going to conduct a ‘provocative’ military exercise in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, perhaps “a message from a ‘frightened’ Western oligarchy” as observed in the latest NEWS AND VIEWS FROM THE NEFARIUM concerning Russia and Putin.
After the Chelyabinsk meteor incident in February, the president of new Chinese government went to Russia in March where he was given a rare opportunity to visit the command centre of Russia’s military force, which was unprecedented. Indication of a high-level cooperation and trust between the two militaries as they conducted a joint “anti-terrorist” exercise in Chelyabinsk later in July, right after they have just concluded a joint naval exercise in the ‘Sea of Japan’. Not to mention, the “anti-terrorist” exercise was held at the same time Edward Snowden was granted asylum in Russia, coincidence or calculated moves?
The recent “2+2 talks” between Russia and Japan in a way “echoes” the “anti-terrorist” exercise conducted in Chelyabinsk by Russia and China, in the sense both occasions are “haunted” by “space threat” and “cyber security”, which oddly enough, these elements ‘manifested’ in the story of Brazilian hacktivist mistakenly targeted NASA for NSA wrong doings.
I doubt Russia’s recent “2+2 talks” with Japan is “meant to put pressure on China” as portrayed by the Japanese medias, as the ‘coincidental’ NATO provocation in the Baltic states may suggest something else in the nature of recent Russo-Japanese talks.
Perhaps something similar to pre-Fukushima Japan is going on, during which time Japan was adopting more “Asia-oriented” foreign policy which amounts to “geopolitical earthquake” to the Anglo-American oligarchy and it was only stopped with a real earthquake, as it happened in Fukushima.
Japan is a pillar of the Trilateral Commission, an intricate component in that post-war “breakaway civlization”. The current bilateral relationship between Japan and China can be best described as “on the brink of war”, due to territorial disputes over the pacific islets.
My suspicion is the recent “2+2 talks” between Russia and Japan ‘aimed to boost military cooperation’, perhaps not meant as enhancing Sino-Japanese relation to the level of pre-Fukushima attack any time soon. But Russia’s engagement with Japan, particularly with the said concern and focus of “US missile defense network in Japan” and “cyber-security”, is perhaps meant to diverge Japan from the Anglo-American orbit?
And by doing so the Russians would just gain as much ‘a leverage against the Chinese’ instead of ‘siding with Japan” which is highly provocative to their partner of which the two countries formed the basis of SCO and BRICSA. Rather, i suspect this could be what prompts the ‘frightened Western oligarchy’ sending a message to Russia in the form of provocative NATO military exercise in the Baltic states.
“As I have argued in my most recent book, Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations, humanity entered a “Tower of Babel Moment”.”
a little off topic, but as i’ve recently enjoyed and completed “Deus Ex : Human Revolution”, i’ve noticed something interesting in its plot.
For instance, a ‘blatant’ reference to ‘illuminati’ and their ‘NWO’ scheme, involving ‘transhumanist’ agenda as they have been conducting human experiments in secret locations.
another ‘interesting’ bit is, the ‘illuminati’s front company in Deus EX is called “Belltower”, with a logo that looks like a creature with two horns, and the very name “Belltower” rather reminded me of two things, “the Tower of Babel”, and with the substitution of ‘Babel’ with ‘Bell’, the Nazi Bell.
So, as ‘breakaway civilization’ and ‘Tower of Babel Moment’ goes on Gizadeathstar, a stumble upon of ‘Tower of Babel Moment’ in unlikely places. Perhaps another little indicator of “humanity entered a “Tower of Babel Moment”?
A new version of the Sword of Damocles to keep all us proles in our place. All under the guise of protecting us from asteroids. Nice cover to legalize our enslavement to our masters.
“the last card, the last card …”
For everybody’s convenience, one of the many youtube copies of Ms. Rosin’s famous speech:
Yup, we are definitely “half-past asteroid” by now.
You have some crime syndicates of power in charge of some terroitories and markets. Sometimes there are wars between the crime syndicates of power. The Von Braun scenario takes this into account by involving the least powerful in instruments of power: the people, but the most pwerful, in terms of potential; i.e., numbers. So the agreed upon scenerios progressed as the evolution of the powers to be technologies evolved. Now that new territories: commercialization of space, are a given; it’s time to get the families of “Nations”(a peoples’ user friendly Orwellian term, preferred over Clinton’s/Rubin’s quaint version), on the same Von Braun page. There is no threat from outside – except the potential of people achieving a representative power. Whether that power be in universal health care, free-energies, education for all, new spiritual awareness on a massive scale, new Earth technologies of living that incorpate all life on earth, ect. Utopian dreams? Better than the Dystopian present, past & future?
Robert (you know this, just adding some clarification) it is the crime syndicates that primarily offer protection, black market goods, and employment for dissociated young males when the govt becomes corrupted by the…….the swindlers
the mob, the yakuza or the triad know where there bread is buttered, ie the potential of the people.
In Japan, there is 1 lawyer for every 50,000 citizens, the US 1 for every 213, the govt after WW2 in its wisdom for harmony wanted people to settle matters other than the govt which are prone to corruption, and would only allow 5000 lawyers annual admission. the Yakuza settle debts, insurance scams, etc very effectively and keep the small man syndrome in check.
In “Mafias On The Move: How Organized Crime Conquers New Territories” by Fedrico Varese, the author makes exactly the point that you make jedi. Also that Global Crime Inc transcends the sovereignty that organizes the modern state system, It’s been baked into the cake by crime families the like of the Rockefellers & Rothschilds. They being living examples of others families, that go way back to those fables, written as histories of record.
on a theatrical note that might have a thread in our topic, the mayor of Toronto, smoking crack, and cavorting with drug dealers, known criminals who btw, have since become murder victims.
Its a stage show, so….someone might be trying too send a message or ??? the “house” of cards is about too collapse.
He was gifted to the late night comedians.
The whole asteroid scenario is about to be thrown on the cutting floor, it is very bad science. Although the egos out there with permanent head damage will debate it endlessly….so who cares.
It does however provide a DIVERSION while the world control political system is put into place…without a shot fired from the controllers.
Remember the protocols, how they were discovered. That was biblical…..and with frank at the helm of a very exposed, crumbling, corrupt system…..red skies in the morn sailors be warned….although who will see them with rose colored glasses.
