This story that was shared by Mr. T.M. (who deserves a big thank you for spotting it) really grabbed my attention. Portugal, it seems, has now joined the very small but growing list of countries planning space ports, but this one, in the Azores, has some very unusual features that form the context for today's high octane speculation. Here's the story:

Portugal builds spaceport in the Azores

Here's the part that made my suspicion meter flip all the way into the red zone:

One of the islands of the Azores archipelago, Santa Maria, may soon become a base for launching small satellites, unique in Europe (the spaceport will deal with launching only small satellites, unlike the Kourou spaceport in French Guiana). Currently, companies from eight countries are competing for the right to use the port.

Fourteen enterprises from the US, Russia, Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Portugal have submitted applications for the first stage of Atlantic International Satellite Launch Programme.


For example, in July the Portuguese sent a recent study to the agency outlining the reasons for building a spaceport on the Azores. The document mentions that the location of the island of Santa Maria is well suited for launching such objects.

Messina explained: "The island is in the middle of the Atlantic, far from other populated territories, which provides greater security of launches."

Now why did all this make my suspicion meter go into the red zone? From the standpoint of rocket launches, having a base as close to the equator as possible makes some physics sense, as the angular velocity of the Earth can be used to enhance the lift of the rockets. But that's not what the article focuses on. Rather, it focuses on two things: (1) the international nature of the spaceport facility, with corporations and various nations vying for a spot, and (2) the fact that the island is isolated, and can provide "greater security of launches." Given that yesterday I blogged about the possibility of some sort of covert international coordination of the early American and Soviet space programs, this little bit about "security for launches" has me once again entertaining similar suspicions...

... and not just because of the international aspect of the project, but also because of the presumed technology (rockets), versus the possibility that some other, more exotic methods might be envisioned, and that "people" would want to keep such "more exotic methods" far from the prying eyes of the public, especially if such "exotic methods" were part of some international consortium.

And while we're entertaining such high octane speculations, there's another possibility, namely, that such a remote place could also be used, not just for launches, but for "return flights", so to speak...

So, yes, I'm suspicious that we're not being told the whole story here, and part of that suspicion comes from the fact that while this is billed as a Portuguese project, that government appears to be but the cover for this deeper international activity, as it's only putting up a mere five million euros to the project, mere blue chicken feed by space program standards.

    Guys …
    Remember the announcement that the globalists want to build out a 5G satellite grid from space. There must be billions of dollars of contracts for companies to bid on. The plan was for ??2500?? satellites to be put in orbit. Its from memory so please research. SpaceX and some other company already had contracts for 100’s of satellites each.

    I think it is a scramble for money / contracts.

    This is not the article I vaguely remember, but it is similar….

    dya suppose we ever had a chance to bet on the winning team in a game we didn’t know was being played by teams that were hidden from us?

  4. marcos toledo on November 27, 2018 at 5:45 pm

    Think Area 51 in the middle of the Atlantic and don’t forget all that water. I am betting the major launches will be from beneath the water.

  5. DanaThomas on November 27, 2018 at 1:23 pm

    Following on with what Goshawks says, I need hardly need to recall that the Azores are said to be the mountain tops of ATLANTIS.
    So launching craft might well come to the notice of various parties “out there”…

    • zendogbreath on November 27, 2018 at 10:01 pm

      not far off dana.

      interesting that the folk primarily responsible for most of the research going on publicly (somewhat) are open / secret masonic too eh?

      check out their symbology

      does anyone get the idea that the one world govt is already in place for a breakaway civilization that will be mostly housed in dumbs while the rest of society is left vulnerable to systemic crash (and hence removal of the old system)? remind anyone of the dark ages right before the enlightenment? odd that how the history we were taught had so little credible sounding info on causes and details on the dark ages.

      • zendogbreath on November 27, 2018 at 10:03 pm

        what if the ark in the movie 2012 is analogous to dumbs in 2018?

    • goshawks on November 27, 2018 at 10:09 pm

      A well-thought-out, scientifically-plausible model for the sinking of Atlantis:

      [subsection] The Hotspots, Plateaus, and Flood Basalts of the World:
      “I ask the reader to consider the land of Atlantis as a plateau, a huge seamount and a Supervolcano. … The main caldera of the island or seamount of Atlantis was on the conjunction of 3 tectonic plates, whose top is a plug that has been deformed in the underwater eruption of 12,000 years ago all along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge [MAR].”

      “The hotspots that are marked on the map tell the current location of mantle plumes. The mantle plumes appear to migrate over time. The tectonic plates migrate over the mantle plume at a higher rate than the mantle plumes migrate. The end result is a series of seamounts that trace the relative path tectonic plate that were formed by mantle plumes generated by hot spots. The path of the tectonic plate over the hotspot is marked by a series of seamounts. The most recently formed seamount of this series is found in the Azores. It is the Azores Plateau. The path of migration between the hotspot that formed the Azores Plateau and the mantle plumes that formed the seamounts is from the area now called Newfoundland to the Azores Plateau…”

      [subsection] A Triple Junction of the North American, the Nubian or African, and the European Continental Plates and Supervolcanoes:
      “The seafloor elevation of the Azores Plateau is the result of the interaction of a mantle plume with lithosphere creating a melt that migrates toward the MAR. Supervolcanoes exist on the ocean floor and their location is associated with undersea plateaus or ‘rises’. The MAR is bordered by 3 tectonic plates, the North America, Eurasia-Iberia, and Africa plates. Supervolcanoes are not readily identified on the floor of any ocean in the world. Super volcanoes occur and operate by different rules on the ocean floor.”

      [subsection] A Large Geologically Ancient Caldera existed Below the Azores Plateau and Erupted:
      “There exists a much larger, difficult to image, magma chamber that is below and feeds the multiple chambers that feed the various volcanoes both submerged and sub-aerial on the Azores Plateau or seamount. Such structures support the MAR eruptions and new seafloor formation. The larger chamber under the Azores Plateau that supplies the others and the MAR is the one that drove the multiple eruptions both submerged and sub-aerial 12,000 years ago that caused Atlantis to subside below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean far enough to change the course of the gulf stream current. This, in turn, caused the world climate change that eventually brought the most recent ice age to an end.”

      “Evidence exists of remnants of a large volcanic structure remnant (caldera system) of undetermined size in the Azores plateau beneath the Terceira rift in the Azores. The number of volcanoes erupting simultaneously on the Azores Plateau 12,000 years ago is describing a supervolcanic eruption fed by the caldera under the seamount. Most of this eruption occurred underwater, and the remainder occurred in a sub-aerial manner. … The circumstances of the eruptions that caused the subsidence of Atlantis involved many volcanoes. The part of the super-eruption that occurred underwater was the most violent by this hypothesis…”

      (So now, we have a convergence of tech companies on this area, “competing for the right to use the [space]port.” Right…)

      • zendogbreath on November 28, 2018 at 11:25 pm

        everything you said and then some gosh.

        i meet your wiki
        and raise you a brighter side vid. take a look at that one i posted above. the richat structure is exactly as described by plato and his uncle(?) generations before plato. right down to the kilometer, waterways, rivers, salt water ways, clean water springs, surrounding mountains, elephants, everything.

        the only difference is the altitude. so while the mid atlantic sank, the richat (formerly known as atlantis) structure rose up like 1000′? but not before a tidal wave or two washed all that ocean sand up over the west of africa. didn’t bury it completely though.

        so my guess is that all that civilization your talking about was part of the richat er atlantean empire. just like egypt was a mere outpost of atlantis.

        • goshawks on November 29, 2018 at 5:07 am

          ZDB, thanks, will look at it. Yes, there are several ‘anomalous’ structures throughout the world, indicating more an Empire than just an island. I like Puma Punku, near the much-later Tiwanaku complex in Bolivia. (Curiously, Puma Punku was destroyed down to its foundations by ‘something’ that left scattered fragments over a large area.)

          I think the ‘classical’ (Greek) view of Atlantis’ destruction is a reflection of their worldview. More likely, it was what happened when two technologically-advanced spacefaring species (or factions) went to war. This includes bombardment from space with nukes and ‘rods from god’. Think of the radioactive skeletons from Mohenjo-Daro.

          I wouldn’t even be surprised that the “multiple eruptions both submerged and sub-aerial 12,000 years ago that caused Atlantis to subside below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean” mentioned in the above post might have been war-related. The Babylon5-spinoff Crusader series mentioned missiles/torpedoes from space that penetrated deep into a planet’s crust and exploded, inducing massive volcanism…

          • zendogbreath on November 29, 2018 at 11:15 pm

            interesting take. thunderbolts.info historical view is similar with one more item. where we believe our ancestors were making myths, they believe our ancestors were recounting massive war among the gods. gods to them being being the planets (and comets) with interplanetary electromagnetic interactions. saw a good vid last month on instantaneous formation of fossils by electrocution. these interplanetary catastrophic history was no small thing for survivors. thunderstorms are scary. thunderstorms between planets are scarier. the idea of mountain ranges and the grand canyon being formed in hours instead of millenia. imagine the poor sods close enough to watch and far enough to survive. yeh, how ya gonna recount that story to the next generation?

          • zendogbreath on November 29, 2018 at 11:18 pm

            oh yeh. and volcanism, tectonics, earthquakes, hurricanes, in fact all weather are some of the milder symptoms of these interplanetary electromagnetic interactions. so yeh. doomsday. all over the planet. complete with magnetic pole shifts and all kinds of landmasses rising and falling. all over.

            that latest vid on the richat structure posits that pluto’s account of atlantis was exact and accurate. including the time it took for atlantis to go away.

          • zendogbreath on November 29, 2018 at 11:20 pm

            there’s even reason to believe the earth’s rotation actually reversed for a few days. and some mythology recounts similar horrors that could only be splained by that.

    To summarize these false knight orders, they are papal controlled secrecy, bypassing the law of the land (the original Runes).

    They are satanic strawmen, that pose falsely as the natural order – that naturally grows out of the Runic pyramid symbol.

    It appears, that Druidic Christianity is the organic resistance movement, against the robotic slave soldiers of the norse viking legion (the Runic reduction).

    Unfortunately this pattern/modus operandi has been used for millennium.
    There are hidden power$ that are not only financing structures for space; but placing within the foundations control assets: physical, human, algorithms. Like when bitcoin launched w/its in-tact back door.
    Then, sometime in the far future when various sides are fighting each other, the hidden powers are engineering the divide & conquer control of space.
    Another frontier that is in name only.

    security : Azores in 20th century :: fantasy : reality

    I know what JPF is arguing and agree with it, but I read the word “security” as a euphemism for “secrecy”. This smells like an intelligence operation through and through based on the language spoken–which makes me wonder if there isn’t already a global governance structure in place, as argued by CAF during the SSP conferences a few years ago. As many have already noted, the Templar shadow hovers on this location. If this site was chosen for historical reasons for similar reasons, it further anchors the euphemism in place. These people want “security” in the extreme measures. If genuine security was needed (against agents such as the militaries of Russia, China, the US, NATO, etc.), the whole matter of “security” would have been handled very differently.

      I’ve not had enough coffee yet…

      • Robert Barricklow on November 27, 2018 at 11:41 am

        Security is a BIG time issue.
        The reason being, there is none; the structure of the current internet belies its demise, security. A new structure is inherent in its future.
        Already blockchain is being ballooned throughout the empire.
        Is it really any better?
        So many lies, misdirection, disinformation its hard to believe in anything that produced via the puppet masters hidden hand.

        • OrigensChild on November 28, 2018 at 12:19 pm

          Robert, in many ways, you framed my dilemma. I considered the Internet before posting and tossed it aside for brevity. My point remains, the best way to maintain some secrets is to divide the work among nations and corporations and allow them to share in the costs of security. If this is reality, then there is a governance structure and separate communications protocol underneath it. If CAF is right in her assessment they have the funds to create it. The secrets are best hidden when everyone at the table has a reason to keep them.

          Besides, “fantasy” and “reality” are not always mutually exclusion. “Fantasy” in some cases is a facsimile of “reality” with misdirection and masks. I could just as well stated the analogy as:

          security : secrets :: fantasy : reality.

    If Portugal is going to use the ‘Closer to Equator’ excuse to fob this Farceport in the middle of nowhere and you cant look at what we’re doing in our faces, then they ought to have at least built it on Tenerife.. (too many tourists?) or Cape Verde..(too many natives?.. or does that sound racist…) Heck.. Sao Tomé and Principe would be perfect.. if only Portugal hadnt turned it into a slave sugar hellhole for Queen Elizabeth and suffered a bloody slave revolt before hightailing it to Brazil to start again…… (deep breath…°) Seriously?? Portugal in Space? They’re not going to need masons and plumblers.. everything will be 3d printed in situ… https://www.fct.pt/apoios/cooptrans/espaco/index.phtml.en

      The Azores are quite a popular holiday destination for europeans with many having holiday homes there. Not sure it would give the privacy required in comparison to somewhere like Antarctica.

  10. WalkingDead on November 27, 2018 at 8:11 am

    I’ve been to the air base there twice during my service in the Navy; the mess hall there is outstanding. United States Forces Azores (USAFORAZ) is based at Lajes Field, Portugal near Lajes on Terceira Island in the Azores. Two islands away from this proposed site. It is a rather small facility housing about 2200 people, give or take, as far as US military facilities go. You can add this fact to your suspicions.
    Never hurts to have a US base close by for covert or secret space program uses out in the middle of the ocean, away from prying eyes. Build yourself a DUMB there and you could house quite a few more with no one the wiser. With a large enough hidden opening to that base you could launch those noiseless, “non existent craft” with few witnesses late at night. Any “sightings” could be brushed off as “normal activity” if you add in enough money to keep the locals grateful and quiet on a relatively small/poor island.
    Too many people are camping out here in the US to catch a glimpse of these goings on; getting harder to brush them off as “experimental aircraft”.

  11. goshawks on November 27, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Ironically, I would put the origin of Portugal’s small-satellite ‘spaceport’ (in the Azores) deep in that country’s past:

    “Scotland appears to have been Freemasonic homeland; Portugal on the other hand represented the Templar’s commercial base, a source of revenue and headquarters. Portugal is a country that had been founded by the Templar’s.”

    “To finalize for today, here is a chart detailing how the Order of the Temple survived as Order of Christ in Portugal under the protection of the Royal House and of the Order of Aviz, and how both Orders stood as two of the three secret pillars acting behind the courtains of history that lead to the Age of Discoveries with Prince Henry the Navigator, stepping in, in key moments.”

    To me, there is something ‘suggestive’ about the discovery and colonization of the Azores under the successors to the Templars, the remoteness of the Azores, and the recent ‘stampede’ shown for the “Atlantic International Satellite Launch Programme.” My spidey sense says that there is more going-on than simply another small-sat launchpad…

    • Kahlypso on November 27, 2018 at 9:21 am

      Kudos Goshawks. As soon as I saw Portugal I was thinking Templers as well. And if anyone has any old Vimana designs that were discovered.. who other than one of the original secret societies to grab a hold of it as they were ransacking the middle east and finding out about Hashashins (hypnotism mind control patsy assassins) and use them to make their own ‘exotic technologies’ antigrav machines..

    • Don B on November 27, 2018 at 10:54 am

      G… You’re right, Portugal plays a much larger role in the Templar saga as many on here describe it. Most of France was the stronghold for centuries, but Portugal played, and still play, a large part in the rebuilding of the group. Lots of treasure still remains hidden in little Portugal.

    • Robert Barricklow on November 27, 2018 at 11:44 am

      Good one Goshawks!
