ROSCOSMOS, NASA CALL FOR ASTEROID DEFENSEMay 16, 2019
C.V. spotted this one, and of course, it went right to the top of my finals folder this week of articles to blog about. As you recall, yesterday I blogged about the Memorandum of Understanding between the USA and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg about space assets. One of the things I've been constantly talking and blogging about with respect to the commercialization of deep space assets is that inevitably, for good or ill, this will require the militarization and weaponization of space to protect those assets from "whomever." And, if you've been following this site for a while, you'll also know that I happen to be one of those people who believe Dr. Carol Rosin when she maintains that Dr Werhner von Braun told her what the "plan" was for putting weapons in space. It would be done, he told her, in distinct phases, with each phase being denoted by a new "enemy" requiring that weaponization: first Communism, then terrorists, then nations of concern, the asteroids, and then finally, "whomever", or extra-terrestrials. When she first made these allegations she was roundly denounced in certain circles, but she stuck to her guns and here we are:
What I find interesting here is the "lag time" and the way this story unfolded. First, you'll recall, about a month before the Chelyabinsk meteor incident, Russian Premier Dmitri Medvedev went on Russian television and called for an international effort at planetary defense against asteroids, but also added, that if Russia could not obtain this, it would have to "go it alone." When questioned about how Russia would defend itself against asteroids, Mr. Medvedev stated that it could use its consider missile-and-thermonuclear weapons arsenal, and that it had "other means" to do so, which of course he left conveniently unspecified. Then, right on cue, the Chelyabinsk meteor shows up, blows up, and within a few days of the event, a "something" is shown on Russian television seen in videos taken by locals. The "something" appears behind the meteor, which subsequently conveniently blows up. And of course Russian television was predictably entertaining ideas that maybe the UFO had taken out the wayward asteroid/meteor. Then, as I blogged last week, the current director of NASA< Jim Bridenstine, stated that, yes, indeed, NASA had tracked a "something" behind the Chelyabinsk meteor and - whew! - thank goodness it didn't "land."
It's like something out of Dr. Strangelove:
"Message received Dmitri... let's talk... could you turn down the music?"
Or to put it in Bridenstinese and Rogozinese:
Bridenstine, who has been a long-time advocate of US-Russia-China collaboration on science, described his experience in Russia at that time saying “when I was over in Russia, the head of Roscosmos Dimitri Rogozin said that was high on his agenda. As you can imagine with Chelyabinsk and Tunguska, Russia has been significantly impacted by these events, so they have keen awareness and intensity on this that I think is important.”
In 2011 Rogozin made headlines by calling for a policy which he termed “The Strategic Defense of the Earth (SDE)”. As the name implies, the SDE was a revival of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) which President Reagan had first made to the Russians in 1983 mediated by the fascinating figure of Lyndon LaRouche. Unlike George Bush Sr’s unilateral version of the SDI later, this first version was based upon joint US-Russia collaboration of a ground and space-based system of plasma-based advanced laser technologies which would have made nuclear war strategically impossible. While the Russians rejected the offer then, Rogozin’s reactivation of the idea three decades later was a stroke of poetic irony.
Rogozin’s new design called not only for international collaboration around an anti-nuclear war policy, but additionally included asteroid defense. Rogozin was very clear in 2011 that this policy would re-channel the trillions of dollars of military hardware being built up by the anti-ballistic missile shield around Russia (and China) into a function which protects rather than destroys life. Little known in the west, Russia Today reported in October 2011 that the program focuses on “fighting threats coming from space rather than just missiles. … It would be an integration of anti-aircraft, missile, and space defenses. The system would be targeted against possible threats to Earth coming from space, including asteroids, comet fragments, and other alien bodies… The system should be capable of both monitoring space and destroying any dangerous objects as they approach our planet.” (Bold face emphasis added)
Notice that Mr. Rogozin, with whom Mr. Bridenstine has apparently "shared ideas", is calling for a defense against "possible threats coming from space, including asteroids... and 'other alien bodies.'" The language here is deliberately provocative, and of course, if it said that "possible space threats" includes asteroids, that means that they are not limited to asteroids. Indeed, Rogozin's language with its mention of "other alien bodies" leaves the door wide open for a transition to the final stage of Dr. Rosin's affidavit: extra-terrestrials.
It takes little high octane imagination to see how this could all be rolled out. Last week, for example, I blogged about the 1990s story of the Oxford professor who coupled "alien visitations" with "global warming," an intriguing development since it provided a "template of action" for the future: couple two seemingly unrelated "global issues" together but make sure at least one of those issues involves space/UFOs/Ets/asteroids, whatever. In the case of Mr. Rogozin's and Mr. Bridenstine's international planetary asteroid defense grid, one can predict that a similar template will be proposed to build out the system: carbon taxes and so on to be used to build those planet-busting electrostatic generators and gravity wave generators... you get the idea.
And for people to be on board with that, they'll have to have a planet-sized false flag, perhaps another Chelyabinsk incident, which would imply they have the technology to throw asteroids around (as I and some others speculated at the time of the incident). Some time ago when blogging about the "space race" and "Asgardia", I speculated that it appeared that Mr. Globaloney may have abandoned the effort to usher in a global government from the "bottom up," and that it now appeared that the "top down" space-to-Earth approach appeared to be on the agenda, and that certainly seems to be the implication of this development.
And of course, to do all this will require a lot of money, much more than taxing you and I to death can possibly raise (though they'll certainly use it as an excuse to harvest more money from us). And in that respect, perhaps, now, we're being told the reason for those new FASB 56 financial reporting regulations, which effectively allow the entire federal budget to go "dark."
If these stories are linked, then it appears to me that "they" are in a big hurry, and that implies that "they" know something...
See you on the flip side...
