A few days ago I blogged about Russia's space and defense chief, Dmitri Rogozin, wanting a Russian lunar base. Prior to that, you'll recall, I blogged about a Japanese architectural firm's plans to turn the Moon into a giant solar power base, beaming microwave energy back to Earth(see JAPAN WANTS MICROWAVE SELENOSOLAR POWER PLANTS ON THE MOON). Recall from that article that I offered the opinion that the real goal here was military, and to turn the Moon into a giant weapon:

 "Readers of my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations will recall that I mentioned an unusual project cooked up – pun intended – in 1968 by the insane American military-industrial-intelligence-finance-apocalypse complex. The “project” called for a system of “microwave energy satellites” that would capture the Sun’s energy and beam it back to the Earth. There was just one teensy tiny problem. The microwaves thus beamed to Earth would have to be collected by antennas at sites that would each generate five gigawatts of electricity. Each of these stations would occupy 145 square kilometers of land, and would not allow anything – human or otherwise – to live there. The sites would be constantly cooked in a huge microwave.(See my Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, p. 244). That was the 1968 plan. Now the Japanese plan, you’ll note, is considerably bigger:

“Shimizu, a Japanese architectural and engineering firm, has a solution for the climate crisis: Simply build a band of solar panels 400 kilometers (249 miles) wide (pdf) running all the way around the Moon’s 11,000-kilometer (6,835 mile) equator and beam the carbon-free energy back to Earth in the form of microwaves, which are converted into electricity at ground stations.”

We know of the Japanese -Chinese rivalry over the islands in the Pacific, but perhaps there is a bigger story, one involving long-range plans involving the militarization of the Moon:

A Chinese ‘Death Star’ Moon Base?

The Chinese plan is much more explicit than the Japanese one:

"An English-language outlet of the The China Times Group, the Want China Times cites the Beijing Times, affiliated with the People’s Daily, the source of the original report.

"The shocking headline PLA dreams of turning moon into Death Star, says expert, cites that “experts in China” are trying to determine how the moon “Can be transformed into a deadly weapon. Like the Death Star in Star Wars, the moon could hypothetically be used as a military battle station and ballistic missiles could be launched against any military target on Earth.”

"The article continues that, 'Various weapons testing sites could also be established on the moon,” citing that the Long March-3B rocket launch is merely the start of “a more ambitious program' to this 'Death Star' end.

"Western media has been largely silent on these claims, in part perhaps because there is some question of the legality of using the moon for such purposes. There are thus more unanswered questions than answers at this time."

The "Death Star" meme is being openly pushed by China, and they can hardly have missed the military implications of the Japanese proposal; forget about the rockets and such, folks. Why use rockets and h-bombs when microwaves are faster, cheaper, and much more efficient?

So look what we have: in the past few weeks, Japan, China, and Russia have all announced long range plans for the militarization of the Moon. The the question is, are we looking at competition, or something more subtle, a cooperation and the beginning of a campaign to accustom people on planet Earth to the idea that, when they look up at the full moon, they're looking at something bristling with weapons, and that has perhaps been itself transformed, ala the Japanese proposal, into a giant weapon.

The real question is, Why? Such an expensive monstrosity would be far beyond the needs for any sort of dominance of the Earth, though it would certainly do that. But ...well, the entire Moon? The cost alone, from a "global domination point of view", would be far in excess of what would be needed to do so. Thus the sheer scale of what the Japanese and Chinese are talking about implies much bigger fish to fry(if you'll pardon the pun).

So my high octane speculation of the day is this: We're looking at the beginning of some sort of program of social engineering, perhaps even a "crash" one, of accustoming people to the idea of enormously deadly weapons in space, and on the Moon. Big weapons, for a big potential problem. Watch this space and Moon meme, because I think we're going to be hearing a lot more about it.

See at the movies....

    Japan and other nation states (what is left of them) need to clean up the radiation in Japan that has reached China Syndrome proportions. I find the obliviousness of Japan and world leaders just breathtaking.

    I know the moon and other planets are sexy…but geeze come on! We’ve no other place to go…..we’ll be sitting here with dark circles under the eyes, coughing and dying while contemplating the moon and space cannons, I just can’t believe it.

    I just feel the only way we can begin to understand anything about the moon at it’s basic level is to start with research behind the Christopher Knight/Alan Butler book “Who Built the Moon?”- why do people continue to ignore this research?- just because someone like David Icke endorses it?- come on- let’s not throw babies out with bathwaters-

    even if not everything the authors state is the truth how the heck did the moon end up in the perfect position to block out the entire sun during a full solar eclipse?-

    interesting enough according to Amazon (at least as far as I read) the first language into which this book was translated was…Chinese-

      maybe the moon and the sun are linked together, like the 2 moons of Mars….just saying….the moon acts like a giant battery causing tidal forces and menstrual cycles on fe males… fe the symbol for Iron?
      and then there are the 13 moons of Saturn…and our moon has 13 cycles in a year….lots of neat “geometry” in our mechanical universe.

      Now back to Saturn, which has a 3 dimensional square at its pole, viewed 2 dim looks like a six sided box….Interestingly Fe is produced by stars and is square shaped sub atomically,, now the saturn is known as the black sun…..did our new sun replace our old sun….sounds kinda biblical…and the cult of saturn worshipers rejected this new sun of god …..see black cubes around the world and bird men in prisons…..

      or watch Star Wars, pay attention to the Naboo people who make a deal with the jar jar blinks crowd…naboo could be a anagram…and the poisonous millipedes that the bounty hunter gives the shape shifter could be a metaphor….ani only got one of them…but his wife had twins.

        again you come up with out-of-the-box approach that has made may day.

    Ain’t no thang ! Those commie microwaves can be thwarted by inverted umbrellas coated with aluminium and stuff to reflect it back at them lunar pinkos. That’ll learn ’em not to mess with America ! And Duck Dynasty will protect us too ! Yeehaw !

    Don’t throw out the idea of using the Moon as a missile platform . The Pluto fly by mission rocket toke only hours to get to and pass it when it was launch. So it’s Death Star on the cheap what if it’s already a Death Star only waiting to be reactivated have you thought of that Mr. Farrell.

  5. Poshboy on December 26, 2013 at 9:56 am

    Also, from a public relations / control aspect, staring up each night at a militarized Moon is just as an effective means of population control as stationing a solider on every block. It’s probably cheaper, and more effective, too.

    Dr. Farrell, did you catch this astounding news about scientists finding that ancient humans crossbred with an unknown species? I can’t help but think of certain passages you wrote in “Covert Wars.” Look forward to your next book…

    The plantagenta family is ready to strike back? For them its always been personal, which is business as usual for the “space race”.

    Watching “gravity” is a mind opener, in reverse it expands.

    “The “Death Star” meme.” Thanks a lot Dr. Farrell. See what you started?

    I wonder if the Breakaways have allowed this Moon arms race among the other world powers because the Breakaways have a potential death star much closer to home (Giza) they have been tinkering with? I contend that Phobos is off limits because the space faring nazi refugees got there first not long after WWII ended. I just wonder how they opened the hatch to enter the phobos ship and if it required knowing elvish or maybe even just Sanskrit or proto-Sanskrit? I imagine the inside of Phobos must have been the equivalent of a modern RV or some amazingly decked out Chevy van with lava lamps and water beds. (Curious that these amenities became available in the same time period. Nazi marketing?) Phobos must have been quite a respite for the Fatherland-less nazis. Maybe they even discovered it was the real homecoming for the so called nordic race?

    When it comes to the Moon and the Chinese, my real fear is that the Chinese will determine that Moon dust is an aphrodisiac and they’ll proceed to gobble up this life sustaining orb.

    And what are the consequences, astrologically speaking, when the benefic Moon is turned into a malevolent death star? As the Moon represents the mind, will turning the Moon into a deathstar make us all homicidal? Tampering with the energetics of the Moon could have devastating implications on the already afflicted mental health of the human race and should not be done without careful study of these potential side effects. Already the wounds of Mars and its belligerent ghost weigh heavy on our spirit. We don’t need to compound this malady.

    It’s getting crowded up on the Moon. Who can say whether other space powers beside the US might not be tempted to exploit a sort of “Von Braun” scenario, stepping in to “save the planet” from alleged asteroids, ET invasions etc. – if not literally, perhaps with some sort of “cosmic hoax”.
