THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM…:LOCKHEED-MARTIN FORMS NEW ENERGY ...

Mr. J.H. caught this one, and it may be another of those articles indicating that the slow drip of massive change is continuing. This time, the trickle involves defense contractor Lockheed-Martin, and its new "renewable energy subsidiary":

SOLAR DAILY Lockheed Martin forms energy group

Now, after the commercials that we were all subjected to in this year's Stupor Bowl (for those of you living outside the USA, this is the annual "playoff" in American football, which usually includes massive halftime events featureing plastic patriotism, jingoism, and beer commercials, only this year featured commercials from the USA's military-industrial complex heavy hitters, stating, in effect, that "we" won't believe what's coming, the clear implication being that "new technologies" are just around the corner, ready to be rolled out), this story may be a continuation of the "slow drip" model.

There's a statement here that left me more or less speechless and stunned, for it's a clear indicator that this "energy revolution" and "end of the age of oil" is very really, and fraught with huge military potentials:

"With our broad energy capabilities now under a single organization, we'll focus our business growth strategy, enhance collaboration, advance new technology and ultimately build Lockheed Martin Energy into a true leader in the expanding energy market," he said in a statement.

The Department of Defense has called for the addition of 3 gigawatts worth of renewable energy to help meet the electricity demands of military facilities. The mandate is part of a broader departmental directive to use renewable energy resources for at least 25 percent of its energy consumption.(Emphasis added)

Let that sink in: the US military wants no less than 3 gigawatts of "renewable energy" - read nuclear, solar, fusion, and whatever else they have up their sleeves - to power US military installations.

The clear implication is that the military wants to be entirely free of petroleum, and therefore, of any potential interdiction of its energy supplies.

This carries with it the disturbing question of why, and the answer can only be because (1) it is predicting such an interdiction attempt in the near, mid-term, or long-range future, and (2) it needs such a secure energy supply to conduct military operations in the event of a general war.

Or to put it couontry simple: this is a war preparation move, but it is one implying, inevitably, sources of energy rather different than even the big (and targetable) nuclear power plants.

And in this respect, let's recall that it was Lockheed, just a few years ago, that revealed its experimental fusion reactor, and which also announced it wants to put such reactors on the back of trucks....(see, for example,

    A combined reply add-on to both

    In the event of a paradigm shifting release of energy science & technologies, the electrical grid will become obsolete in about 10 seconds. The future of energy sustainability is de-centralized generation of electricity with an absolute minimum of grid connections (which in the residential sense means just the wiring in the home).

    Rossi’s E-Cat device still runs out of ‘fuel’ at around 6 months, after which an E-Cat owner will still have to find a supplier of the ‘fuel’ to sell it to them (monopoly maintenance program 2.0).

    Successful discoverers and tinkers like Nikola Tesla, Gabriel Kron and John Bedini among countless others didn’t/don’t need additional ‘fuel’ to operate their devices. These folks figured out how to attach their devices metaphorical ‘belts’ to the spinning cogs of the universe. Akin to building a dam and letting the universe do the rest of the work with the rainfall cycle.

    1957? Nobel Prize to Lee & Yang for proving broken symmetry.

    The Aharonov-Bohm experiments

    Maxwell’s original equations (pre-Lorenz & Heaviside)

    Sound energy could even replace many of the tasks we’ve assigned to electricity ie; 100 tonne megalithic stones moved across the land (evidence across the planet), Coral Castle in Florida made by one person and the Hutchinson Effect. Sound waves doing real work. Ultra-sound waves were used to blast away a kidney stone I had a few years back! So much better than having that 3 foot long flex cable with a tiny blade on the end inserted into my ‘out only’ hole to crawl up my urethra to do the same job.

    Agree that the military industrial complex is looking out for itself and why not, there’s never been a more volatile time to have a nuclear attack in the ME (cutting off oil supplies) or in the Homeland of Security (cutting off of electricity and perhaps key trans-national pipelines). The good people that are still leading the various branches of the military must be on board with the 3GW initiative too. They see the handwriting on the wall.

  3. “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” Yep, I am on the ‘permanently moderated’ list. Nothing even controversial about this post, and no URLs. goshawks – March 31, 2016 at 10:44 pm.

    1. I’ve noticed posts with too many negative descriptions or trigger words concerning large corporate entities seems to trigger moderation. I guess it is now unacceptable to criticize corporations in a manner that could effect public opinion of them and potentially their stock price I’m suspecting. Wasn’t that suppose to be in some of the new trade deals or something? I guess we are being protected from litigation perhaps. Or perhaps we are test subjects being monitored for our reactions to a potential new PC web policing bot someone is considering rolling out soon to re-educate all us potential corporate cyber terrorists/bullies.

    2. I don’t think we are allowed to criticize corporations anymore because it could affect public opinion of them and thus their stock price. We also may be test subjects for an experimental new PC police bot. My other reply saying the same is under mod so I’m experimenting with toned down vocabulary.

      1. Roger, you might want to be part of an ‘experiment’. (Any others are welcome to join-in.) Whenever we are ‘moderated’, put it in writing just above your moderated post. That way, we can get an idea of just how pervasive this is.

        For those out there who are ‘remaining silent’ when moderated, you are contributing to the ambiguity around this. Put it in writing…

          They are continually experimenting.
          Like the Turtleman’s live action sequences with animals, a reality show that is staged. The animals used, are then left for dead[deprivation, stress, threatened health & well-being, etc., etc. All heavily scripted rescue scenes.
          This scenario is repeated live throughout the real world, and virtual world. In war, in government, in science, in all arenas – micro & macro. It’s a symptom of an evolving form of pseudo capitalism[I’ve written here before about].
          Bot and/or combination of an evolving program involving controlling the dialogue, or social engineering. It is replete throughout the system, as it fights to maintain absolute control – without appearing to. It tries to remain under the radar. The best slaves; after-all, are those that think they are free.

  4. “The clear implication is that the military wants to be entirely free of petroleum, and therefore, of any potential interdiction of its energy supplies.”

    That was my first thought, also. The oil tanker routes out of the Persian Gulf are laughably-easy to cut. Even a ‘false flag’ sinking of a few tankers would be enough to keep the tankers in port. Given the Saudi Arabia/Turkey ‘on the menu’ talk, the government/military may be playing catch-up to keep the lights on and vehicles moving.

    I do find it interesting that Lockheed Martin (and Boeing) just lost the competition for the massive ‘Long Range Strike Bomber’ program. This leaves Lockheed with only the F-35 fighter and C-130 transport to produce. And, there are no mega-programs on the radar. This state-of-affairs may have led Lockheed board members to reallocate R&D to the Energy side…

    The U.S. military is taking the lead via Lockheed Martin. They know about the off-world economies and need energy technologies to interface with said off-worlds in near future?

  6. The military bases likely already have state of the art energy back up and can be energy independent at the push of a button if need be. Likely the military already has secret alternative energy generation systems they could plug into during a war that would destroy the global energy markets if they ever became publically known. Most likely this is actually a good sign. It might mean that the military industrial complex is about to transition into civilian projects finally instead of secretly fomenting crisis all over the planet to stay on the government you know what. This may be a sign of coming peace or it could be just some lobbyist lobbying for another unnecessary program to artificially drive up their stocks and make huge profits for the politicians who own their stocks. I think its the roll out of future cleaner power sources that won’t get rolled out unless the government subsidizes it for whatever reason.

  7. The black world gets blacker by the day, and Lockheed Martin are at the top of it. Buy why keep teasing us, why don’t they just come out and tell us what is really going on. Well there’s the stock market to contend with.
    The people at the top of Lockheed Martin must have some “serious” friends who want to get in on the “leap” of science that is just around the corner.
    So we wait again for the “tit bits” to continue, meanwhile the energy sector has been sitting on their hands as well. Oil is going to be around for a very long time, you just can’t cot off oil there’s too much money invested in it and 1000’s of jobs at risk. So dear readers, all this is just wind, and all the articles, in all of the world are just that…..wind!!!

  8. Welcome to SLAVEWORLD or “Planet Of The Apes” meets “The Sound Of His Horn” the novella and novel. Add “Battle Angel Alita” the manga series should give you some idea what our masters have in store for the rest of us toys. The control of natural resources has always been a cover and excuse for their real goals to terrorize, torture and kill the rest of us biped trophy animals for their amusement.

    1. We’re not that easy to kill, so they are finding out. Hence the push for global warfare. People are slowly waking up to all the “slow kill” methods and beginning to push back.

    Just before WW1 several fronts on the monopoly of money/energy were being contested; even including they most dreaded of all enemies, LABOR in the form of the Wobblies.
    Thus a strategy ton go to War Globally would achieve all goals. Money/War Profiteering/Globalized Chains of Debt Peonage; A Globalized Petroleum-Based Economy; and workers are being issued bayonets to have a go at each other.
    Now that energy is being globally switched?
    Now that money becomes digital/cashless globally?
    Now Labor, is getting even cheaper than Rockefeller dirt-cheap labor?

    1. And for the first time the global manipulators are facing a mounting global insurrection that even they won’t be able to control. I suspect they thought they could get away with doing small controlled insurrections that they themselves help set off on preexisting tensions to relieve the mounting resistance. They knew they would have resistance and knew who the resistors would be and probably had plans to set them off and quell them in many small regionalized control burns instead of one big out of control one. But now realize they may have gone after too many groups too quickly and the next in line are getting organized against them before they are meant to while those who have already been burned out by their looting are finally realizing what really just happened to them and are eagerly joining the push back of the next in line.

      1. Robert Barricklow

        Correct Roger.
        And the Dam is about to burst, literally.
        Iraq’s largest hydraulic dam, Mosul Dam – according to many who read the TPTB tea leaves. Just think, since 2013 the U.S. has spent $2 trillion there.
        There are triggers just waiting to be pulled by those who want to maintain the status-quo: rich getting richer; poor getting poorer, and the prison/industrial complex growing by leaps and bounds.
        They’re mantra is no longer, the commercialized protect & serve -but they’re well signature punish & profit.

  10. Two yeas ago a friend of mine who is an educator and Native American. Told me of an EO to get all US military bases 100% alternative energy self sufficent in the near future. Where all generation would be done inside the fence. Hmmm, interesting info indeed. So, why the need? and why so soon? This is indeed an indicator that something is up.

    I’ve been into alternative energy since my posterior almost went to Gulf War I over “strategic resources” and I’ve worked at a prestigous Utility Solar R&D Facility. 95% of all alternatives are antique technologies and come in two flavors persistent(i.e. hydro and geothermal) and non persistent(i.e. solar and wind). My guess is there are break throughs in storage tech as well as “Cold Fusion”. IMHO, these break throughs are decades old, were financed by public moneys and will enrich only a few.

    My other SWAG is that cheap(subsidized fracked) natural gas will be used to bridge the gap in the event of a Soalr CME / Nuke EMP. Where it will be cheaper and easier to keep / resurrect the centralized grid model; functioning with NG (Fuel Cells (~70% efficient)) than repair an aging electrical grid that will be far too expense to replace. Pipeline is waaaayyy cheaper to maintain and install than overhead wires. I would also venture a guess that a cheap method(possibly even OU) of making H2 will be used to extend NG supplies. However, this little detail will not make the news. BTW, you can cut NG with H2 by ~50% before you have to change out any burner hardware. Take if from someone who knows..

  11. Does one really expect the Saudi’s to continue selling the USSA oil if it’s “on the menu”, or any other ME nation for that matter. So the military/industrial complex intends to take care of itself and the rest of us will be left to fend for ourselves. Just more of our bankrupt government looking out for itself at the expense of its citizens.
