Yesterday I blogged about a story that seemed to have caught a lot of this website's readers' attention, namely, that Russia and China have been conducting joint experiments in ionospheric heating using the large Russian heater called SURA. My question and speculation yesterday was that they were sending messages, especially since the article reporting the story in The South China Morning Post also mentioned - without comment one way or another - that ionospheric heaters have long been thought by some in the alternative research field to be adaptable to modify the weather, create and/or steer tornadoes and hurricanes, be used for mind manipulation on a regional scale, or in other creative ways in conjunction with chemtrail spraying, like igniting nanothermite, creating weird and anomalous fires, and so on. Indeed, if my high octane speculation yesterday is true and Russia and China are "sending messages", why send them now? As I implied, but perhaps did not explicitly state yesterday, perhaps the timing, coming after the latest round of anomalous fires in California, is not accidental: "We know what you're doing, don't try it here, because we have the technology too."

OK, I grant you: that's crawling way out to the end of the twig of speculation without so much of a whiff of evidence to support it (other than the article's odd mention-without-comment of some of the suspected capabilities of ionosphere heaters).

In that story, however, there was a link to another story, from a few days earlier, but by the same author(Stephen Chen), and like the first, there were a few statements in it that "raised my eyebrows":

Operation Z machine: China’s next big weapon in the nuclear ‘arms race’ could create clean fuel – or deadly bombs

As the story notes, the "Z machine" is the USA's high energy facility to simulate nuclear explosions in order to design more efficient nuclear bombs. Now this is where it gets really interesting:

The machine is being built for the military by the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics at China’s nuclear weapons development base in the city of Mianyang and is expected to be up and running in a few years, according to a Beijing-based nuclear physicist.

It is designed to produce about 60 million joules of energy in an instant – roughly 22 times the 2.7 million joules generated at the Sandia facility.

It does this by firing powerful electrical pulses at a target about the size of a spool of thread consisting of hundreds of tungsten wires, each thinner than a human hair.

When the pulses pass through the wires, the tungsten explodes, evaporates and creates a plasma with a magnetic field so strong that the exploded particles are forced inward.

The particles collide, producing intense radiation – mostly X-rays – and creating conditions that more accurately reflect a real nuclear explosion.

Now why is that interesting? Well, in the wake of the Oklahoma City Bombing, Michael Riconosciuto maintained that the bomb was a very special bomb. Riconosciuto is a man that hovers quite uncomfortably on the edges of a lot of shenanigans covered by the alternative research field, things like the Inslaw-PROMIS scandal, Danny Casolaro's murder-as-suicide with all the attendant connections to what Casolaro called "the Octopus", and so on. Casolaro, who had contacted Riconosciuto, called the latter "Danger man". Riconosciuto is indeed an odd duck, being highly intelligent, and definitely connected to black projects. To make a long labyrinthine story short, in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City Bombing, Riconosciuto maintained to one interviewer that the OKC bomb was a special type of "thermobaric" bomb that had been developed as an offshoot of the nuclear program. In his version, particulate heavy metal and combustible particles are dispersed in the atmosphere, electrically activated to create a "chain molecule" and then again electrically detonated to create a pressure wave equivalent to a tactical nuclear weapon, literally crushing and pulverizing anything in its blast field. If effect, it was a kind of "electro-molecular" bomb, using the atmosphere's oxygen as the oxident.

And the "Z machine" was probably intimately involved in the creation of such technologies.

And China wants to build a much bigger one.

As if that's not enough, the article makes mention - again without comment - of another possibility:

Z machines have been used in the development of nuclear weapons, from conventional warheads to the pure fusion bomb – a hydrogen bomb that can in theory be made in any size, cost a fraction of today’s nuclear stockpile and burn “cleanly” without producing radioactive fallout.

What comment does come in the article about this possibility comes near the end of the story, isolated from the above statement:

Lei said there had been costly failures in developing the technology in the US and Chinese scientists faced equal if not greater uncertainties because of their much more ambitious goals.

For instance, fusion could produce a large number of fast flying neutrons that will weaken or damage critical components. While the equipment was durable, researchers had not yet been able to solve the neutron problem, Lei said.

He warned the development of a pure fusion bomb would meant international nuclear weapons treaties would have to be rewritten.

“But I don’t think we need to worry about this, not until we see a real new bomb. The technology is so difficult, it remains more fantasy than real threat.”

Now in case it's not clear what's really being said here, what's really being said is that the bomb-makers are on a quest for a "clean" hydrogen bomb, that's the one with a much bigger bang than an atomic bomb. The "blast yields" of the latter are measured in kilotons, i.e., in thousands of tons of TNT. The blast yields of the former are measured in megatons, i.e., a million tons of TNT. The "bad" news is that in standard publicly-known hydrogen-bomb "how to do its", an atomic bomb is needed as the fuse to create the intense heat and pressure to get hydrogen atoms to fuse. No a-bomb, no h-bomb. And it's the a-bomb that produces all that nasty radioactive fallout.

So in other words, "they" have been chasing the idea of a "clean" thermonuclear bomb, i.e., a "hydrogen" bomb that does not need an a-bomb as its fuse. What's extremely disturbing, and odd about this story, is not just the acknowledgement that this has been a secret goal of covert thermonuclear bomb projects. It's the tense in which it is stated in the article:

Z machines have been used in the development of nuclear weapons, from conventional warheads to the pure fusion bomb – a hydrogen bomb that can in theory be made in any size, cost a fraction of today’s nuclear stockpile and burn “cleanly” without producing radioactive fallout. (emphasis added)

In other words, while the article ends with a disclaimer that such a fusion bomb is all just "theory", it initiates the topic by stating it's already been done. And that Z machines and, for want of a better term, "electro-nuclear" ignition was the key. That they are working on such stuff we can be certain. DARPA (The Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency) at one time during the Reagan era was seriously pursuing the idea of an isomer bomb. Then there was the Red Mercury story of the 1990s, a magical mystical substance that was supposed to be a dark maroon-purplish goo, very heavy, that could initiate fusion explosions without the need for an a-bomb as the fuse. (See REALLY!?!? … RED MERCURY, AGAIN!? PART TWO)

Whatever one makes of all this, I have the uneasy feeling that China "knows something" and that it's sending clear messages. After all, this is the same country that not only wants to build a bigger better Z machine, but a bigger better version of CERN's large hadron collider...

See you on the flip side...

    Messages being sent for sure. “The South China Morning Post” is now indirectly owned by the Chinese communist party and has degenerated into little more than a propaganda mouthpiece. The online edition seems to have its own Chinese communist party troll farm.
    Could the message being sent by the Chinese be that, after the (clean nuclear?) explosions which hit the port of Tianjin in Aug15, China is now in a position to retaliate in kind, should the need arise?
    I have no scientific knowledge or understanding on which to base this opinion, but I’ve always had the feeling that HAARP was part of the armoury of Space Command/Space Force. Call me hopelessly naive and optimistic again, but could HAARP, the Space Fence, 5G, etc, etc, etc, be protective of Earth from assessed threats from further afield?

    according to duff’n’stuff at vt 911 was done mainly with micro nukes that do not leave much radiation after a few days.
    “We know that specialized nuclear devices suitable for use in this type of scenario had been designed by a team at the Los Alamos National Laboratories, weapons that left little or no residual radiation unless, as was the case after 9/11, water was poured onto ground zero to cool the massive underground fires caused by melted steel mixed with liquefied granite in the form of magma, which persisted until January 2002.”

    in links at the end of that article..

    Their efficiency is so high that they only require one tenth the amount of fissile material that previous designs needed. Even lower grade blends of non weapons grade plutonium (less than 92% pure) will work just fine. So any nation with a nuclear power reactor and a uranium or plutonium chemical separation program could easily make them.”

    and I think to myself what a wonderful world… it used to be.

      I used to spend a lot of time at the VT website. They claimed that one reason the 9/11 nukes did not leave that much residual radioactive material was because there was a hurricane (or 2) which sucked the particles away and dumped them over Greenland way.
      There were a lot of articles on the smuggling of the nuclear warheads and how they were ‘refurbished’.
      Have I posted this link yet?

    A yes the bomb that kills the people but leaves the real estate intact that goes back to the late sixties early seventies the Neutron Bomb.

    nice catch doc. wonder why not in our backyard? labor cheaper? pollution costs less? lower costs of higher risks of failure?

  5. Bluenose on December 20, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    I see a message of we can destroy a lot of things but leave the earth inhabitable. Has the definition of “doomsday” been changed/modified? If so, how many countries and extra territorial group(s) was this message intended for and who are they? Who belongs to which alliances? How many belong to more than one alliance?

    It’s another, in the long technology of weapons: throwing rocks, sling rocks, shooting arrows, shooting lead, artillery, poison gas, biological warfare, nuclear warfare, clean nuclear warfare, and on and on till an unforeseen, silly simple accident, ignites an unimaginable Armageddon.
    That’s the hot version.

    The there’s the socialized digitized credit Chinese version that locks down society in a truly cold dystopian socialized Armageddon.

    Have the bots taken control?
    If so, lets get some humans in the equation. Some analogue thinking that has an outcome that is basically just good old common sense – that benefits all societies in their respective signature specific cultural ways.

    Why is that soo difficult?
    Is it because the leadership of puppet societies are just plain dumb as hell?

    As I (with limited understanding) understand the Z-machines, they are used to “create radiation and high magnetic pressure, which are both applied to a variety of scientific purposes ranging from weapons research to the pursuit of fusion energy” and mush-mouthing “allow scientists to experiment with a variety of target arrangements to create conditions useful for many different purposes.” I expect this mainly means testing military apparatus for vulnerability to atomic-bomb phenomenon…

    And yes, creating ‘fallout free’ fusion-weaponry has been a holy grail for Dr. Strangelove types (their handlers). This would circumvent the MAD doctrine and allow ‘nukes’ to be used at any time or place. I expect that this has had a priority higher than the Manhattan Project for many decades, and may have come to fruition around the turn of the century…

    • OrigensChild on December 20, 2018 at 9:04 am

      I have to agree with you, goshawks. I think this was done as early as 20 years ago. I also believe the incident in Atlanta from 2017 with the exploding bridge was one of the latest possible uses of this technology. When one reads the accounts in this story one is left with the same conclusion as the incident in NYC from 2001 where buildings disappear due to fuel fires from burning airliners. (Right!!! Nod, nod, wink wink!!!) I’ve been watching the X-Files, Season 5 recently. There were two episodes at the end of the season worth mentioning here. In episode 15, named “The Visitor”, we have J Edgar Hoover admitting that the US government was covertly demonstrating to the Russians the US’s resolve to win the Cold War by doing the unthinkable against its own people. Their strategies were covert ops domestically with propaganda to conceal their activities. Then we have episode 18, name “The Pine Bluff Variant”, where the US military runs a covert operation to test a biological form of weaponized bacteria using a local paramilitary organization as its agent in a multi-layered operation where the target is the US federal reserve system. I’m not suggesting the writers of the series are leaking information to us here, but if their fertile imaginations can re-engineer the type of thinking these fascist elements within our government use as a methods of social engineering, reality is probably much worse. We are constantly warned of the corruption in the Russian economic system–yet ours is orders of magnitude so much higher it is measured in percentage points in the thousands. If Russia and China is sending messages the messages are intended to be multi-layered. The are not only warning the rogue elements in our government of their capabilities by “limited disclosure”, but they are also telling the common people here to look more carefully and more skeptically of matters within our own country for solutions to local “mysteries” not comfortably explained by the official narrative. It’s the natural rebuttal position geopolitically to a state whose corruption has almost consumed its public economic system.

        Just think about how the government took away the Indians land, culture and way of life. The guns killed better than the bow and arrows. Going back further there was technology that could blow up an entire planet. We live in a very advanced civilization, maybe even a type 2 or 3. We can go interstellar yet something isn’t right.
        I want to Live in freedom, yet spell check does not even recognise the word as I typed it. Because it’s fake, artificial and doesn’t comprehend life and how to Live it. I used to tell the computer how to run a program, more and more now I have to obey its rules.
        I wish the Indians would have won.
