Ok, by now most of you have heard that the official reason that the Richard B. Dunn solar observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico was closed was because a staff member - a janitor apparently - was allegedly using the observatory's computer and communications system to access child pornography.  Indeed, prior to this story being made public, I was alerted that this was going to be the official explanation. And I went on record that when the then-unstated official reason was going to be given, and wasn't going to be buying the explanation.

And I'm still not.

But don't misunderstand me, I'm not dismissing the story out of hand either.

Here's the way one local television reported the story:

Child pornography reason behind Sunspot Observatory closure, according to court documents

As I pointed out last week, when this story first began to trickle out, the inconsistencies became even more apparent. Here's Zero Hedge's review of just a few of those inconsistencies:

The Reason The Solar Observatory Was Closed Is Revealed, And It's As Disturbing As It Is Unbelievable

But perhaps the best review, so far, of the problems is this:

Sunspot Observatory Mystery Deepens After 'Official' Explanation - What The Heck Are They Hiding From The Local Law Enforcement And The Public?

The authoress of this article, Susan Duclos, zeros in on the same problems with this explanation that I have, by focusing on AURA's statement (AURA is the actual institution that runs the observatory):

1) According to AURA, they couldn't adequately protect their personnel or residents at "such a remote location," yet the Sheriff and his department, which would have been responsible for protecting said personnel and residents, were never informed and were not consulted, so how could AURA even begin to determine whether adequate protection could be provided without any input from local law enforcement?

2) AURA claims it was the most "prudent and effective action," to force residents from their homes and off the mountain, and to cease all science activities at the location, rather than just call the Sheriff and have his department provide protection to said residents and employees? That doesn't even pass the smell test.

3) They claim that informing residents, employees, and the community at large would "alert the suspect," and they couldn't take that risk," as if the FBI converging on the facility, evacuating it and the local Post Office, with a Black Hawk helicopter flying around above, and "a bunch of people around antennas and work crews on towers," wouldn't "alert the suspect?"

Nor was the Otero County Sheriff buying it either:

SUNSPOT, New Mexico - Otero County Sheriff Benny House told ABC-7's New Mexico Mobile Newsroom Monday he was infuriated at the way the FBI handled the sudden and mysterious closure of the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico.

"I think it's chicken sh*t the way the FBI handled it. I have a responsibility to protect my citizens," said House, "I think it's paramount that we know what the threat is so we can provide safety."

He wasn't finished, as reported by ABC-7:

House is demanding answers. "Is there a bomb threat? Is there an active shooter? Is it chemical? We need to know so we know what kind of man power to send up there, and with out knowing, it's dangerous for everybody," House said, "We have a duty to protect and we can't protect them if we don't know what is going on."

House said he reached out to the FBI repeatedly and was kept in the dark. "We've asked and asked (the FBI) and they will not tell us anything," the sheriff said.

AURA has refused to respond to numerous calls from the local news organization, and the New Mexico FBI Public Affairs Officer, Albuquerque Division, Frank Fisher, returned one of their calls, but refused to answer any questions about the "dangerous suspect," and would give no response to Sheriff's House's statements, then referred them to AURA's nonsensical statement before quickly hanging up.

In other words, "We've got our narrative and by golly we are sticking with it." Click.

But Ms. Duclos' article also mentions yet a new twist: the inhabitants of the observatory's village allegedly were given "cash payments" and made to sign non-disclosure agreements:

In ANP's previous article about the Sunspot Solar Observatory's evacuation, we showed footage from a drone, taken by Youtuber Paul M., which gave a good view of how massive and sprawling the Sunspot location is, and he has been on-site multiple times since then. (His video channel is here for those that want to see the drone footage)

In his latest video's description he said he spoke to Linda Moulton Howe of Earthfiles, and described for her what the Sunspot Observatory looked like after the "re-opening" on the 17th.

“The windows of houses in Sunspot around the Solar Observatory are still boarded up with sheets of wood, no one is around, like a ghost town. And I talked with one person today at the observatory who told me they had signed a non-disclosure form (NDA) and that they were compensated with enough money to where they would not want to talk about what has happened.” – Paul M., Drone Pilot from Alamagordo, NM, visited NSO, Monday, September 17, 2018, after “re-opening”

Then there's the rather weak theory that the Federal warrant debunks all the "theories" out there about the closure:

Federal search warrant debunks theories behind Sunspot Observatory closure

My problem here is that it does no such thing, nor does it answer any of the questions that have already been raised. It merely gives an official sanction to the child-porn narrative. It does not explain the rather strange behavior already mentioned. If Paul M.'s statements to Linda Moulton Howe are true, then why would non-disclosure agreements and cash payments be necessary for a child pornography case? Answer: they wouldn't. And none of this explains the coincident shutdown of camera feeds of other solar observatories around the world.

Which brings us to some high octane speculations about what may have been going on. But those will have to wait for tomorrow...

See you on the flip side...

    “Child porn” – that ol’ chestnut?

    As multiple commenters already covered–this isn’t how real child porn criminals are addressed but it is how they are “managed”. If the discovery were authentic, we wouldn’t know about it and this isn’t how they’d handle it. Actual Child Porn is like gold. It’s an invaluable commodity, a precious currency among our government, intel, MIIC, MIC, and military. Being accused of being involved in child porn is the new homosexual behavior exploitation, shame and leverage.

    Most everyone in positions of influence and power are there because they are leverageable, blackmailable, corruptable. That’s how they got the job. And anyone who has studied 9/11 and false flags and truth media knows without a doubt that there is absolutely no privacy, no smart phone or computer that isn’t hackable, perhaps even all of the internet has a gatekeeper and is hackable, has been for decades. This is what facilitates the CP blackmail.

    Over the years I’ve done considerable research on child sex crimes, trafficking and it’s shocking how common these crimes are and how often they involve leadership throughout our society. The actual crimes are unconscionable and unlike the NXIUM and hollywood version of “child porn” and exploitation, which is bad, the REAL power and control and horror is in the much younger children, toddlers and babies, which is never covered in “media” in favor of the wayward teen smokescreen.

    Maybe it was Alien pron, and Aliens just happen to look like that through the FBI’s eyes?

  3. Verum on September 26, 2018 at 2:27 pm

    Can anyone see my previous post (rather long, with multiple links?)
    I can’t see it and when I try to repost I get a message indicating it’s duplicate, but no message or indication that the post is under review, etc…

  4. 8thdegreeofj on September 26, 2018 at 2:31 am

    Don’t hate me, I just have to start with this; so an observatory named Dick B. Dunn had a bad case of a janitor-so-hot-for-child-porn? Sorry folks, you just can’t make this stuff up.

    Followed by; the post office got shut down? WHY, did Will Smith show up in a black suit and neuralize everyone except the EBE who looked like Tommy Lee Jones but was actually the janitor at the observatory?? Need a patsy…

    Now buried in a mess he can’t comprehend; The real life sheriff House is looking more and more like Steve Zahn from the ongoing tv series “The Crossing”. Many parallels between these two situations including an FBI that doesn’t give a rats petunia about local jurisdiction and claims of pictures of space ships coming out of the sun (time traveling?).

    The dead hiker is apparently a tourist from Belgium, who came here alone and was hiking the trail at night but died within half a mile of the trailhead. And park rangers quote “have no idea whatsoever how he died”. The one and only article about this story mentions the word “car” twice and “vehicle” once but does not state that it was a rental. That would seem to be a pertinent detail when a park ranger is assessing why that car was there ‘after hours’. It would immediately inform the ranger that an out-of-towner is on the trail and appropriate backup personnel may be needed right away to perform a search. But if it wasn’t a rental, was he really a tourist? It’s been 10 days since the story broke and still his identity has not been released? Surely his closest kin have been contacted now and Belgian national press is covering this, I checked. Perhaps this fellow didn’t want to sign a non-disclosure agreement and rejected the filthy federal reserve notes payoff.

    And finally (for now), I’ll leave you all with this statement from the official Wikipedia page for the facility “… a highly versatile astrophysical observatory which serves as an important test platform for developing new instrumentation and technologies.” With a description like this, it’s where I have to draw a line in white sand with the YouTuber who questioned whether the FBI would be assigned to shut down this place over observing a fleet of UFO’s or other off-world “something”. New instrumentation & technologies –like the kind that could spot UFO’s or unseen solar phenomena (maybe by accident or seen by the wrong personnel). I wouldn’t be sending in Homeland Security at all! That screams “hey look here, a potential nationwide crisis”. I also question why the Chinese would use an astronomical telescope to look laterally across the desert at White Sands range?? Is that even possible, maybe I missed the finer points of that theory.

    . . . Sounds like, . . “Diss-foh-dat, . info-lack, . . Just take the money ‘n’ get back. . . You don’t know nothin’ . . . You were never there. . . You don’t exist. . . Don’t call us, we’ll call you. . . Oh! . . And leave the camera film, cassette tapes, hand phones, and PC account numbers, passwords, and login names.”. . Thanks for the links

    . . . Maybe they’re making a movie. . . You know. . . A sequel to “Contact.”. . Instead of using Arecibo, Porto Rico, or the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) in central New Mexico. . . Sunspot, New Mexico, is as good a place as any to show-off that Solar Disc refueling technique. . . Sort of a rehash of March 2012 of that Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) live video catch or maybe where the idea for fueling “Destiny, the Ancient Star Ship on Star gate Universe (SGU),” came into being. . . One question goes begging, “What can be made of this Sunspot, New Mexico, drama and intrigue?”. . For the promotion of Space Science, of course. . .

      I guess we should give it a try at least. They can afford to say the truth because nobody would expect it from them.

  7. Margaret on September 25, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    Pretty sure this all has to do with aliens being in the physical building & messing with the data input & output. Something going on in the skies that it not for our eyes. The boarding up of windows might have to do with radiation exposure or some other alien type virus that maybe authorities feel could be a threat but sounds like the town is somewhat quarantined or has been. To pay people off after signing a NDA & giving them enough money to stay quiet, it had to be something I think highly alien related.

  8. marcos toledo on September 25, 2018 at 6:48 pm

    Child Porn come on this lamer than the weather balloon excuse for flying saucers at Roswell in 1947. Can’t the government come up with a halfway decent lie that is at least believable for once?

  9. Westcoaster on September 25, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    I’m not buying the cp story either because it the actions are out of place for the purported crime. But I can predict if this story develops any further they’ll hide the truth behind “national security” as they always do.

  10. goshawks on September 25, 2018 at 3:06 pm

    The FBI (alphabet agencies) response is way beyond that of “allegedly using the observatory’s computer and communications system to access child pornography.” If that were real, the perp would have been stopped & arrested while driving somewhere, accosted while on a shopping trip, or had a midnight raid on his/her house; quiet-like – not a John Wayne ‘storm the beaches’ extravaganza…

    I am still not sure other solar observatories were closed or interfered-with in any way. Linda Moulton Howe investigated these claims and found nil (repost):

    I just finished a Sep 12th youtube report by Linda Moulton Howe: “Why did FBI close down Nat’l. Solar Observatory in Sunspot, NM & local Post Office?” At 13 minutes in, LMH said she got an email on the supposed shut-down of other solar observatories, which did not make sense to her. So, she asked her friend and author Peter Levenda to investigate. He found nothing unusual going-on at the listed sites, as well as others around the world. Only at the Sunspot, NM site. So, ‘someone’ is spreading disinfo for whatever motives…

    The old tried & true Scott Ritter child porno route.
    Like a National Security card they also play when cornered.

      For your protection, of course.

    Child Porn is going to be the new Umbrella ‘label’ for we do what we want and no questions asked.. Tomorrow it will be.. satanists and occultists!
    Now its.. Shut Up! Stop questioning me! Im destroying the Child Porn.
    It used to be Terrorism / Terrorists
    Before that it was Communists
    Before that Nazis
    Before that Jews
    Before that Protestants
    Before that Jew again
    Before that witches and satanists.. hmm.. they’ve run out of stuff to blame again.. rince and repeat..
    I think I mentionned in the last thead.. The CP claim doesnt stand as the reason why the FBI sent the Space Force to Blackhawk and airlift people off site.. If I was playing a computer game.. Id say.. First contact?
    The Child Pron was discovered months ago on the janitors computer and it wasnt reported because the site director was ‘busy’ (probably emptying his bowels at the sight of Alien Motherships killing the Sun…), and if the Janitor was involved in anything Id suggest that it was money and files for CP distribution, as the data from the observatory is hotwired directly to Mexico University.. so hello dedicated secure communication line. You’ll probably find that this has something to do with NIVXIM or whatever they call themselves..

    • GW on September 26, 2018 at 12:57 am

      I tend to disagree with the satanists and occultists, that is just too close to the truth 🙂
      But there are websites which specializes in blaming others from spreading fake news here in Europe, under cover of NGO’s.

  14. WalkingDead on September 25, 2018 at 9:54 am

    I remain skeptical that this is little more than theater designed to draw the alt media’s and the public’s attention from other, more important matters. A common deep state tactic which may be an indicator of one factors desperation. What is coming that would cause such an act of desperation?

    When wolves are running hungry
    they seek sheep husbandry,
    while in forest lurking
    with teeth grinning,
    awaiting flashpoint killing spree.
