Yesterday, you'll recall, I blogged about the untimely death of Major General John Rossi, the USA's newly appointed "space commander", and I indicated that while the story of his death remains bland and non-commital, the context and timing of it seems a little odd, given this year's already strange list of space stories. Indeed, for this year alone, those stories include (1) a private US company being given recent permission by the USA to go to the Moon, (2) an earlier story from this year about how NASA has dramatically beefed up its spending on "doomsday asteroid detection" (subject of today's blog), (3) stories about NASA jets being parked on runways at a little known US base in East Africa, and so on.

Consider this story about NASA beefing up its "doomsday asteroid detection" effort, shared by Mr. M.D., from earlier this year:

Now you'll note two curious things about this article: first NASA has dramatically increased its funding for asteroid detection:

The financing for the Near-Earth Objects (NEO) monitoring program has grown from $4 million to $50 million since 2010, due to what NASA say are increasing asteroid threats in recent years.

That's $46 million in just six years, a drop in the bucket for a run-amok federal government now measuring programs in the hundreds of billions of dollars. But it's not exactly pocket change either.

Secondly, there's this reference:

“Asteroid detection, tracking and defense of our planet is something that NASA, its interagency partners, and the global community take very seriously,” John Grunsfeld, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, said in the statement. “While there are no known impact threats at this time, the 2013 Chelyabinsk super-fireball and the recent ‘Halloween Asteroid’ close approach remind us of why we need to remain vigilant and keep our eyes to the sky.”

What I find grist for my high octane speculation mill is the reference to "defense of our planet" and the "Chelyabinsk super-fireball", the meteoric explosion about the large Russian city of Chelyabinsk in 2013. Regular readers of this website may remember my various blogs about that topic, or even my statements on various interviews at the time, where I pointed out that there was much about the Chelyabinsk incident that didn't quite "sit right," not the least of which was then Russian prime minister Dmitri Medvedev's announcement, fully a month before the incident, that Russia should defend itself against asteroids, and called upon the rest of the world to enter into the creation of an international planetary defense grid to do so. But in the meantime, Medvedev said Russia to press ahead to defend itself and its territory against the threat anyway, international cooperation or no. And he offered an unusual list of techniques by which to do so, suggesting that its thermonuclear missiles could do the trick, and that it had "other means" of doing so, a reference that to my mind suggested something more exotic than H-bombs, but equally if not more destructive.

At the time, there were other "odd events" going on in space: China had just launched a ground-based anti-satellite missiles and blew one of its own obsolete weather satellites apart, and two satellites, a Russian one and an American one, had just "accidentally" collided. All of which raised the prospect in my mind that someone might be in possession of a technology capable of colliding satellites or hurling rocks at Chelyabinsk (a home of much Russian nuclear and medical research, incidentally).

So the statements here provoke my high octane speculation: is there an unstated reason that we need to defend the planet from "asteroids" other than the obvious one of an accidental collision of one of those rocks with the planet? Defense, after all, normally conjures the idea of someone on the offense, and that's the rub, for the "plan" they've come up with sounds all-too-uncoincidentally like that proposed by Mr. Medvedev back in 2013:

One immediate planetary defense goal for the newly-formed task force is to create a viable technology that can change the course of an asteroid approaching our planet.

NASA and the Nuclear Security Administration have separately studied potential threats that could obliterate cities or the entire planet. For years, the two agencies examined cosmic fragments, designed rocket interceptors, and conducted simulated tests to see how asteroids could be prevented from entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

The two agencies sealed an agreement in summer 2015, working together to safeguard the planet’s survival in the event of an incoming celestial object. A goal of their collaboration is to develop a plan that involves using nuclear device detonation to intercept asteroids.

The only thing missing here is Mr. Medvedev's reference to "other means" of destroying asteroids than hydrogen fusion "devices."

So allow me to throw all restraint to the winds, and crawl way out on to the end of the twig of high octane speculation, where the weight of the speculation far exceeds the twiggy evidence to support it: remember those recent stories about "mining asteroids" and actually converting them into maneuverable space ships to go and mine other asteroids in turn? It's actually a very practical idea: why go to the cost and expense of building a large space ship, when one can simply snag an asteroid, hollow out sections of it for living space, and build things via 3D printing one needs, and attaching some engines to the rock.

I suspect that, behind the scenes, there's more to be seen, and that the thought has occurred that what is asteroid spaceship sauce for the human goose, is asteroid spaceship sauce for the non-human gander...

...So why increase spending on monitoring? Well, beyond the obvious, such monitoring might be able to show if an asteroid was behaving in ways "unusual" for  its mass and density, if it had "hollow chambers" and so on, and radar tomography could provide the answer to that. So perhaps the "defense" angle is meant to imply an "offense" one. And that brings us to the link with the Rosin Affidavit, for recall that one of Wernher von Braun's last professional associates and colleagues, Dr. Carol Rosin, has maintained that the "game plan" for weaponizing space would be first the Communists, then terrorists, then "nations of concern"(think Iran or North Korea folks), then asteroids, and finally, ETs. With the asteroid spaceship idea, the latter two elements are connected at a deep level. And all of this would, incidentally, be tailor-made for that "top-down, space first" approach to creating a global government.

And note one final thing: while there's no mention of "ET" in the article at all, it is nevertheless titled in such a way as to imply it.

See you on the flip side...

    Hi there, first time commenter, love your books. In that vein, this article in Scientific American is VERY interesting w/r/t your exploded planet hypothesis. Basically, it claims that about 2.9 billion years ago, Venus was habitable, …

    Notice that the photo comparison is between 2001 technology and the improvements made by 2015. Maybe something occurred in late 2001 that caused our government to sit up and pay attention. That movie Iron Sky comes to mind….

  3. Kahlypso on August 10, 2016 at 1:52 am

    What needs to be noted here is the incredibly inflated budget that they are receiving to ‘search’ nearby space.. This coming on the back of the Vatican’s Infrared Telescope… I mean.. in today’s day and age of budgetary review committees.. What line did they advance to justify a budget 12 times their original budget allocation??
    Hi everyone. We need an additional 46 million because.. there might be an asteroid inbound..
    No one on Earth does anything about anything unless there hasn’t been a load of death and destruction that has ALREADY happened.
    Putting nuclear weapons in space is a bad idea.

    • Guygrr on August 10, 2016 at 2:24 pm

      I remember reading something about the technology already being there, but the software needed to be updated and standardized. How that cost 46 million I have no idea.

      • Kahlypso on August 11, 2016 at 7:43 am

        The same way a toilet seat in the army or a screw(ed)driver costs 20 000 dollars.. Because people are greedy and corrupt. (if the technology already exists, etc..) I ‘think’ (I hate using that term..) that its more about putting in place the kind of equipment that the Vatican is buying.. to look for cold objects in Space…

  4. iZeta on August 9, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    Well if the Earth is no longer quarantined, then not only are we allowed to go out, but others are equally allowed to come in. Von Braun’s NWO and its defence system would SEEM necessary to defend Earth against them. But are they truly an invading alien force? Or are they a returning one ?

  5. Roger on August 9, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    Although such satellites may very well be capable of multiple uses and agendas; I suspect this article is stating their main purpose of detection and planetary defense of meteors and comets. If you think the power structure wants to take a chance on losing all their power or being destroyed by an asteroid strike then you haven’t been paying attention. This threat likely does keep some of the up late at night and it only makes sense to solve this problem when we have the technology and resources to do so.

    • Roger on August 9, 2016 at 6:31 pm

      But as far as what may be best for humanity in the long run, especially with the way the power structure is beginning to abuse and enslave the human race with technology, a meteor strike sending us all back into the dark ages might be the best thing that could happen right now.

  6. DownunderET on August 9, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    If we are going to be “attacked” or “hit” by something, I would imagine it would have happened by now. Space is a big place and this planet is very very special in the galactic world. But we have elites, and those elites are related to the ones who first came here. Joseph always says that the two fighting factions are still here, and to wit they don’t want to see this planet end up like the asteroid belt.
    So, it aint gunna happen.

  7. purplelama on August 9, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    I was glad to see the article sources elsewhere, as yournewswire has a penchant for making stuff up. As it is, the original headline has no mention of aliens.

  8. Jon on August 9, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    The idea of bombarding a planet with “natural” objects was part of the 1950s sci-fi flick, “This Island Earth,” as were many elements of the Breakaway Civilization – although on the alien’s terms.

    Stargate SG-1 also dealt with the theme of using an asteroid as a “deniable” attack on Earth (protected by treaty), but the covert attack iss found out when the team lands on the asteroid and detects unusual “enrichment” of the interior of the asteroid with a highly explosive element in decidedly “unnatural” amounts. This thwarts their efforts to destroy the asteroid with a nuke (explosion would be magnified too much), and leads to using an “exotic” technology, hyperspace drive, to take the asteroid into hyperspace long enough to get safely past the Earth. (“Failsafe,” season 5, episode 17, 2002)

    There is a remarkable amount of breakaway civilization stuff explored pretty well in that series – politics, ethics, finance, technology, secrecy, humanity versus machine materialism, spirituality, human evolution, genetic engineering, hiding of advanced technology in history and mythology, paleoancient civilizations, limited leaking of alien technology through regular development channels, and so forth.

    The fact that it was so strongly supported by the Pentagon and especially the Air Force (Space Command?) leads me to believe that it was a vehicle for raising awareness of just such issues as we move off planet, and a limited disclosure venue as well. They even did episodes exploring that very thing – using a TV show about the Stargate program (“Wormhole Extreme”) for plausible deniability – very self-referential.

    Another popular phenomenon to keep an eye on is EVE Online – it is an MMO game which takes place in a distant part of space colonized by Earth until the natural wormhole which allowed travel collapsed. It is so tuned in to “market” economics, that we had a business prof using it to teach undergrad business students about modern capitalism.

    It is like Wall Street, the Matrix, Firefly, Babylon 5, The Last Starfighter, and 1890s Robber Baron capitalism on steroids, crystal meth, AND LSD all at once, with the volume turned way, way up. Also unbelievable graphics and immersion. Give their trailers a look on YouTube – more asteroid mining, warring empires and corporations in space stuff. A training ground? Sure seems like it. Over 300,000 people participate worldwide, and the space battles involving 1000s of players in real time have even made it into mainstream news.

    Can’t remember the name of that other recent movie about training children with games to fight space enemies – add that into the mix.

    • OrigensChild on August 9, 2016 at 2:32 pm

      It may be the screen version of Orsen Scott Card’s Ender’s Game to which you refer. Good job.

    • goshawks on August 13, 2016 at 3:42 am

      Jon, I enjoyed your post. The ‘Stargate’ television series (not so much the original movie) always struck me as an (enjoyable) anomaly, because it actually did what SF was supposed to do: bring-out/examine new stuff. That series, along with the original ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Babylon 5’, are the crown jewels of REAL (TV) SF.

      I, too, noticed the cozy relationship with the (real world) military and wondered what was behind that. Perhaps it was just the positive image that they portrayed of the military, perhaps recruitment-quota boosting, or perhaps something deeper…

      If you have only watched the ‘Ender’s Game’ movie, be sure to read the original Orsen Scott Card book. It is like only watching ‘The Lord of the Ring’ movies versus reading the J.R.R. Tolkien books…

    What cat are they about to let out of the bag now. They been lying for so long doubt that they telling the real truth is rampant throughout society. The World could end tomorrow and nobody believe them that how much their reputation has fallen nobody wants to believe them anymore.

    • Roger on August 9, 2016 at 6:16 pm

      It’s beginning to look like the NWO is incapable of telling the truth on anything, even when the truth would serve their agenda better. It’s like they get off on lying or something.

  10. loisg on August 9, 2016 at 11:17 am

    The strangeness of some of the moons of Sarurn can’t have escaped the notice of NASA, such as Iapetus and Mimas (a son of Gaia? not a son of Saturn?) I’m sure they have those moons under constant surveillance, but like you said, if it’s good enough for “them” then perhaps it’s good enough for us to try using the same technology as far as we can duplicate it. Maybe we can’t build one from scratch yet, but using an asteroid as is and modifying it comes pretty close.

  11. WalkingDead on August 9, 2016 at 9:39 am

    You could also add to this list two more long cycle events which appear to be upcoming: the Sun may be entering another Maunder minimum, which would lead to a mini ice age; and the pole shift, which is apparently already under way and has lead to the weakening of the Earths magnetic field by ~15% to date. Pole shifts have been tied to extinction events in the past, loss of oxygen planet wide, and what are termed “arkstorms” due to “starwater”. While these events are controversial, there is evidence in the geological records which support them.
    The breakaway group, with whatever its space capabilities might be, have more to worry about than just asteroids and aliens. It is suspected, and geological records indicate, that pole shifts occur, not over long periods of time, but rather within the life span of a human being (approximately 100 year or less) and we are well within the beginning of this one.
    Even with the Sun going into a Maunder minimum at the same time as a pole shift occurring, a well timed CME from the Sun would essentially send us back to the early nineteenth century technologically. We would lose a great deal of our electrical grid resulting in almost immediate chaos world wide. Billions would die due to the resulting madness and starvation. Not a pretty picture.
    Why are these two scenarios not mentioned anywhere other than the alternate media? Why has the “global warming” meme been changed to the “climate change” meme in the MSM? Surely if the alternate media has picked up on these, others would have also. Might we be seeing preparations for such events under another guise?

    • goshawks on August 9, 2016 at 6:08 pm

      WalkingDead, I can’t speak to pole shifts, but we are likely in the beginnings of the next, full Ice Age, not just a Maunder Minimum shortie. We are at, or just beyond, the end of the latest 10,000-year-long Interglacial Period. If human civilization crashed back to pre-industrial levels, we would be facing an incipient, 100,000-year-long Ice Age. The PTB may have this in their calculations…

      Get up to speed on Milankovitch Cycles here:
      (go to Data & Analysis after reading the Introduction)

      For direct evidence of the upcoming REAL Ice Age, go here:

      The Vostok Ice Core overlaps several Milankovitch Cycles. If you go to the “Dust and Temperature as a Function of Age” graph at the bottom of that page, as you read from right to left you approach Now. You should be able to see that the last ‘spike’ of warm times happened, say, a thousand years ago or so. We should be sliding-into the next Ice Age, NOW, if the Ice Core’s results are projected forward.

      Reputable scientists note that the near-Now ‘leveling’ of the slide into the next Ice Age corresponds to the growing influence of humans on their environment. Human heating. If there was a civilization-crash and thus lowered heating, mankind would have more on its plate than going after the elites…

      • WalkingDead on August 10, 2016 at 1:19 pm

        Thanks for the links. For information on the weakening of the magnetosphere and movement of the poles you can go to:

        His conclusions are backed up by quite a bit of reference material listed on his site. You can review his references and make up your own mind about what may or may not be going on.
        Even a mini ice age would be detrimental to agriculture and thus the population as a whole, a full blown one would be even more devastating.
        I agree with you on the fact that the elites have more on their plate than what is typically discussed either in the MSM or alternate media sites. I just don’t see them being too altruistic with their plans and that does not bode well with the rest of humanity. Being who they are though, they will need a work force for whatever plans they may be hatching; how much freedom that workforce will have will not be up for debate, I’m sure.

        • Guygrr on August 10, 2016 at 2:11 pm

          Coupled to this is the flight of many rich families from Europe and the US down to Uruguay. (Rated by the book Strategic Relocation to be a prime spot for surviving a cataclysm or ice age)

    The expression “potentially hazardous objects” seems to have been carefully chosen, as a nicely comprehensive but vague term. Anything to do with what Hitlery is now calling Unidentified Aerial Phenomena?

    • Guygrr on August 10, 2016 at 2:07 pm

      Hitlary’s reference to UAP’s in conjunction with Tom Delonge’s/Peter Levenda’s project (Podesta is involved as well) has me very worried the two groups might be working together.

  13. Aridzonan_13 on August 9, 2016 at 7:48 am

    I can think of no better way to subdue a planet than a well placed, well sized asteroid. In “The Survivors of Atlantis: Their Impact on Modern Civ”, the author chronicles 3 major asteroid impacts over the course of ~3200, 2100 and 1200 BC, the ancillary EQ’s and volcanism afterwards. So, it’s an historical fact that civilizations have ended due to NEO’s.

    IMHO, a well placed asteroid, volcano, etc. Would allow the PTB a clean get away. The planned take down and pillage of Western Civ could be nicely covered up by a convenient asteroid strike. Delivered by the Break Away group.. Hence, the reason for their rapid and wreckless asset stripping of the planet.

    • goshawks on August 15, 2016 at 7:29 pm

      Aridzonan_13, I looked up Frank Joseph at Amazon. He seems to have many admirers for his books. What did you think of his theses, particularly on Atlantis? Thanks.

      (And yes, asteroids/volcanoes are very convenient…)
