Mark Twain once complained that the theory of evolution returned wholesale dividends of speculation for a minimum investment of fact, but that might be a statement more appropriate to today's high octane speculation. What I'm referring to is the new one trillion dollar (that's $1,000,000,000,000 folks) defense appropriations being proposed by the Obama Administration to upgrade the U.S.A.'s nuclear weapons arsenal:

‘Anti-nuclear’ Obama plans to spend $1 trillion on nukes

What caught my interest - to be more honest, the odor that wafted through the room as I read about this, and tickled my nose - were these two paragraphs:

"According to the Times report, an effort to ensure that the antiquated nuclear arsenal being held by the US remains secure has since expanded to the point that upwards of $1 trillion dollars is now expected to be spent on various realms of the project during the next three decades, the likes of which are likely to keep the trove of American nukes intact and do little to discourage other nations from doing differently.

“'The original idea was that modest rebuilding of the nation’s crumbling nuclear complex would speed arms refurbishment, raising confidence in the arsenal’s reliability and paving the way for new treaties that would significantly cut the number of warheads,” the journalists wrote. “Instead, because of political deals and geopolitical crises, the Obama administration is engaging in extensive atomic rebuilding while getting only modest arms reductions in return.'”(Boldface emphasis added, italicised emphasis from RT)

As the article also points out, the "selling point here" will be "Russian bellicosity":

With Russia on the warpath, China pressing its own territorial claims and Pakistan expanding its arsenal, the overall chances for Mr. Obama’s legacy of disarmament look increasingly dim, analysts say,” they wrote. “Congress has expressed less interest in atomic reductions than looking tough in Washington’s escalating confrontation with Moscow.”

The odor that wafted through the room as I read this had nothing to do with "Russia being on the warpath," but rather the odor of something not quite "adding up," and hence, my high octane speculation for today: Ostensibly, this vast investment is to upgrade and maintain the USA's remaining nuclear triad - submarine, land-based, and air-based - nuclear weapons. Presumably, one can add to this the intermediate range ballistic missile capability, "tactical" nukes, and some "suitcase" nukes. So let's assume for a moment that this is not for "upgrading and maintaining" current systems, but rather, designing whole new ones, let's say, a new ICBM with, say, 10 mirved warheads of various yields suitable for "strategic purposes," say(to estimate on the high yield high expense side) between 100-200 kilotons. So let's also assume this new ICBM system would cost $1,000,000,000. Add to this a "new supersonic stealth bomber" with a price tag of $5,000,000,000. And so on. Add 10 Virginia class nuclear attack submarine(see US Navy Orders 10 Virginia Class Submarines at a record cost of 17.6 Billion). In other words, one trillion dollars would buy 1,000 of our hypothetical ICBMS, with 10,000 nuclear warheads, or 200 super stealth bombers, or 56 attack submarines, or some mixture of various things. And it would buy lots of them.

In other words, such a vast expenditure would buy a nuclear arsenal several times over that which we already have. And if this trillion dollars is just for upgrades of current systems, then that cost would be considerably lower.

In other words...

... it's the numbers that aren't adding up for me. The sum would seem to exceed the cost of such systems several times over, even if one factors in research and development and maintenance of new systems.

So my high octane speculation is this: doubtless some of this vast sum wiil be for thermonuclear weapons, probably of all types. But I don't think for a moment they will be the real center or motivation of such a vast expenditure.   I suspect this will go for much more exotic, and hence, expensive and hidden technologies. "Russian bellicosity" and "nuclear deterrence" are in my opinion the cover stories for something else. We may be looking at the  black budget being paraded before our very eyes.

See you on the flip side...

    are’t “nukes” a thing of the past/dinosaur technology?

    don’t we/they (whatever) already have particle-beam weapons for a long time?- so why should we evermore worry our pretty heads about “nukes”?- this completely baffles me-


    • jedi on September 28, 2014 at 12:10 pm

      they like scaring the crap out of us between feedings….fear itself is the weapon.
      Think about those nuclear drills, do we really believe that being under a desk would save you from incarceration? or in a airplane kissing you butt is a safe position to withstand a 500 mile/h instant stop…a bunch of comedians running things if you ask me.

    Like space rockets, nukes are “OLD” technology. And you can bank on this, if you fire a nuke at some country, you had better count on one coming back in minutes. So what’s all the hubbub about?

    The next war will not be fought with nukes, just remember 9/11 and what brought down those towers, a DEW is a nice weapon to have in your arsenal, it’s just that maybe somebody else has it also.

    While the obvious scenario being that the money will be siphoned off to black projects, I wonder how our Chinese creditors feel about their military rival, the United States, spending a trillion dollars they don’t have sprucing up their nuclear arsenal? I’m sure the generals in Peking will balk at such madness… unless of course their is another scenario: what if the Chinese are in fact buying our old nuclear arsenal? One scenario I propose is that the Chinese have cut a secret deal with the most devious and unscrupulous people(?) on the planet, the Israelis of course, to procure America’s nuclear arsenal in exchange for a commission and the continued most favored nation status to the Israelis– but this time in a Chinese unipolar world. In this agreement, the Israelis would be allowed to continue terrorizing and blackmailing the rest of the world while also being allowed to maintain their control over international drug dealing, slave trading, pornography, illegal arms shipments, annoying spam, the ivory trade, etc etc. In return the Israelis, through their stranglehold on DC politics, will facilitate this subterfuge under the guise of sub-contractors hired by the dimwitted Pentagon to upgrade the nuclear arsenal. The Israelis will either then surreptitiously hand over all the nukes to the Chinese, like they did to the North Koreans when they were contracted by some world body to decommission South Africa’s nuclear arsenal, or they will just neutralize our nuclear defenses for a future Chinese sneak attack. The Israeli presence in the Fukishima reactor before the tsunami comes to mind.

    The other scenario could be that the zionists have not sold the US down the river in favor of an up and coming new host, but instead the US has hoodwinked the Chinese, through this or a similar ruse, to buy our antiquated nuclear arsenal for a much needed trillion dollars. Like the scam of selling the Chinese our rust belt factories while we secretly perfect 3D manufacturing only to roll it out one fine day and immediately turn Chinese factories and their millions of workers obsolete, maybe the US is about to pull off another con job on the unfortunate Chinese and sell them our old nukes while we perfect weaponry that will make any nuke, old or new, totally obsolete?

    • Lost on September 28, 2014 at 8:07 am

      The Chinese are far from the biggest holder of US debt.

      “In return the Israelis, through their stranglehold on DC politics, “

      Not every decision in DC is about Israel.

      And Israel is solely responsible for “terrorizing and blackmailing the rest of the world while also being allowed to maintain their control over international drug dealing, slave trading, pornography, illegal arms shipments, annoying spam”?

      Are you joking or just blinded by whatever Geoff Rense is reposting?

      3D printing is at least 50 years away from doing away with basic manufacturing facilities–robot or human.

      This bigger picture you’ve posited sure is limited.

    I have compiled an endless list of possible desirable enhanced biofunctions for a super-me. Some are simple minor surgeries that I have already performed upon myself and a few friends, using kits which I developed ( patent pending ) and manufacture, i.e.:

    ( 1 ) Rhinal Enhancement — Enlarged nostrils ( easy to pick ), with silicone tubing in all snot channels to facilitate injection, drainage, & insufflation, implants &c.

    ( 2 ) Hemi-Penes — ( a ) foreskin extension to enclose other genitaia ; ( b ) everted colon to accomodate colorectal concupiscience, suppository adminstration / enema pre-treatment, &c .

    ( 3 ) BB-proof Skin — Biocompatible bodysuit scaffold of titanium alloys, silicone, nanoscale composite fibers &c. Currently available only as helmets ( skinhead only — NOT hair-tolerant ).

    ( d ) Big Ears — Better hearing, and easier to clean, with amplifier channels, &c.

    Of course the most stultifying thing is to see what an animatronix President we have in Obama. He looks numb and zombified though he can still pull out that robotic voice that has become the epitome of “nothing to see here, folks.” I am just itching to see what happens to Hillary when she “gets the message” from the handlers and turns into a mannikin. She has already caved into the Neocons of course, but I want to see what she looks like when they scare the soul out of her and neuter her in toto. She has already been scared badly before:

    When I read about Obama’s 1 trillion dollar nuclear investment plan I thought for myself: How much can a man do before a people goes – enough, we’ve had enough! Then I went: How much can a rouge group of people do, before higher intelligent ET beings go – enough, we’have had enough!

    Any intelligent living being presently on earth can tell that our environment is at stake, we are killing our planet! Yet, when it comes to the decision of where to invest 1 trillion dollar – on environment or on war, the people that have been elected to save us all make the investment decision that war will give us all the best return between those two.

    This is what I think: The budget of 1 trillion dollar is partly spent on nukes and partly to keep the world in heavier slavery than ever before.

    It’s bloody disgusting!

    • basta on September 27, 2014 at 12:43 pm

      You have to put on your psychopath’s glasses and see the world the way they do, then you will understand that black is white and war is good.

      In the eyes of the elites, war is a great thing, about the best thing they know: it makes them vast amounts of money, it destabilizes the targeted region, and it culls the population.

      It’s a win-win-win!

      • GizaBrother on September 28, 2014 at 1:32 am

    It is an insane number, and yes, a chunk of it is going to go to black-ops. But at this point, with the USA being what it now is — a corporate kleptocracy — I think most of it will simply be stolen by the Cabal and thrown about like corporate chum through various forms of instiutionalized corruption.

    The empire is riding on fumes; we’re smack-dab in Caligula redux and tearing through that decadence at a blazing pace.

    You know, I don’t mean to be a jerk, but I think it’s almost useless to triangulate from anything out this guy’s mouth these days. It’s all designed to serve the general fear and confusion, the only correspondence with reality being instances of flipping blame… outrageously… utterly fantastically… and he doesn’t need to wildly exaggerate numbers to cover for the black budget because nobody will go down for printing up out of thin air quintillions at this point, no fear of that “goddam piece of paper” tripping any of them up.

    Saying that number is good for terrifying taxpayers and vexing world leaders, both of which keep us off their backs. That’s all the reason he needs to open his filthy yap here.

    A $T is a lot of doe.. I agree that this is a total 3.0 upgrade. Where FedGov.Inc and it’s 3.0 division are getting ready for something big in both the Private Energy side and the MIC / Space Navy arenas.. It’s really tough looking at the tip of the iceberg. I’m guessing they will attempt to make the BRIIICSSA fall into line via overwhelming tech superiority with a side of Teslarian tech that could possibly cause meteors to fall from the sky, volcanoes to erupt and the ground to crack open below all who dare to abandon the $FRN as WRC..

  14. emlong on September 27, 2014 at 10:06 am

    Where in God’s name is a technically bankrupt country going to get another trillion to throw around?

    On a side note the planet-wide chemtrail operation is costing us at least a trillion already though presumably that cost is being shared among countries, but what if it is not? The chemming jets I saw in France working that country over top to bottom are flying in what livery?

  15. loisg on September 27, 2014 at 9:30 am

    With so much of the research under their belts and presumably already manufacturing some of this exotic technology (remember Ben Rich’s comments made so long ago now), then I have to think that a trillion dollars would buy a huge amount of exotic weapons as well. So I am left wondering why the large sum and why now? Have they discovered something out there that they feel the need to defend against? It doesn’t even have to be aliens, it could be the old Nazis for all we know.

    “…raise confidence” translation:

    “…new treaties” translation:
    TPP treaty, aka Worldwide Corporate Dictatorship.
    All reverse projections like in the follow:
    Reality: Elitist rogue elements of the American government “on the warpath”. Reverse projection: “With Russians on the warpath”.
    The upshot is trillions for the breakaway civilization…

    weaponizing everything under the sun,
    and probably, even including the sun,
    were the truth to be known.
