In yesterday's News and Views from the Nefarium, I speculated about what I thought would be the next "meme" to be pushed by Mr. Globaloney, and the latest "twist" in GMO geopolitics. I noted that the opening of a case against Mon(ster)santo's corporate "black ops" division by French prosecutors might be seized upon to create a push for a consistent global policy about GMOs, about heirloom seeds, and the creation of international institutions with enough teeth to back them up. I'm not on the globaloney band wagon, of course, but that is my suspicion. Similarly, we've been tracking another emerging "meme" in the past few days, that of coupling global polanetary issues (like asteroid strikes) and the emerging talk of an international effort to create a planetary asteroid defense system. Yesterday's blog referred to high level talks between NASA's Jim Bridenstine and Roscosmos' Dmitri Rogozin.

I don't know about you, but there's no doubt in mind that there has been an "upward trend" in the amount of space-related stories, and most of them concentrating on the idea of some sort of "threat" that's "out there" that we "down here" need to prepare for. I've even advanced the idea that things such as "carbon footprint taxes" and all the other usual globaloney might be the chosen funding mechanism to create these weapons systems.

In keeping with that "upward trend" of stories, many people spotted this story and passed it along(and thank you to all of you who did):

Ted Cruz warns Space Force is needed to battle space pirates

Senator Cruz is saying something I've been arguing for a long time, namely, that with the coming commercialization of space and all the talk about mining the Moon and asteroids, not to mention the fact that both the USA and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg have now passed laws stating essentially that whatever resources corporations might manage to find out there, they own those resources. Stop and let that one sink in, for the way I'm reading those laws, they might also apply to any artifacts or technologies that might be found out there, say, on Mars or the Saturnian moon Iapetus. But the bottom line is, that commercialization will require protection of space assets, and that in turn will require the weaponization of space to protect those assets from "whatever" (asteroids) and "whomever".  It's this that Senator Cruz recently addressed in the US Senate:

“Since the ancient Greeks first put to sea, nations have recognized the necessity of naval forces and maintaining a superior capability to protect waterborne travel and commerce from bad actors,” said Cruz, the chairman of the subcommittee on aviation and space, adding, “Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space. In this same way, I believe we too must now recognize the necessity of a Space Force to defend the nation and to protect space commerce and civil space exploration.”

Ok... space pirates. This little statement came on the floor of the US Senate, the same Senate that according to recent stories in the media had former Democratic Majority leader Senator Harry Reid funding bills for UFO studies (as if they hadn't been studied covertly by the US military and intelligence since the 1950s). So one may either assume that Senators Reid and Cruz have been drinking too much Swampington, D.C. Koolaid and taken leave of their senses, or that, being reasonably intelligent men, they are speaking from a reasoned position, and perhaps even from a position of some degree of "inside knowledge."

It's that last possibility that informs today's foray into our trademark High Octane Speculation.  Consider what "space pirates" implies; it implies either someone "down here" with (1) the money, (2) the infrastructure, (3) the expertise, and (4) the technology to become "space pirates." It furthermore implies that they would have the means and resources to "fence" whatever space swag they went out and "pirated." It implies, in effect, either "rogue nations" or rogue groups, extra-territorial actors. On the other hand, it might imply someone "out there" with similar resources.

Either way one slices it, it's an extremely odd statement to make, and no, in this instance, I do not think Senator Cruz has been drinking too much of the Swampington D.C. Koolaid. In effect, Senator Cruz has more or less made my own prediction and line of reasoning behind space commercialization and its inevitable weaponization "official."

The real question is - which I leave it to the reader to decide - is whether or not the remark was made based upon some sort of "inside knowledge" that the rest of us are not privy to.

It's when you consider his remarks with everything else we've blogged about regarding space this week, that one gets the impression that "something" is definitely going on.  And if my "Versailles template" and "quarantine zone" hypotheses regarding space are true, then what we're also looking at is a kind of "space version" of the remilitarization of the Rhineland, and a unilateral abrogation of whatever "space Versailles"  might have been in place.

See you on the flip side...

    arrghhh there be pirates here on earth too….

    so it’s like the gold pot calling the gold kettle gold.

  2. basta on May 18, 2019 at 3:55 pm

    Cruz is obviously a big fan of dystopian sci-fi, The Fifth Element and Bladerunner here we come? I doubt it, at least not for a loooong time.

    A red herring methinks for moar MIC gravy.

  3. Andrew A Currie on May 18, 2019 at 2:08 am

    Space pirates?!!! Whaaaatt …?!! What – out of this world – does this bunch know that we don’t? What is the point of Cruz’s statements about Space Pirates? It was announced recently that President Trump’s new mission to go back to the Moon by 2024 will be called Artemis. Besides all the ancient Egyptian-Sirius references intimated by this term, it was also the name of the fictional mission on the Moon in the 1980 “ Superman II” that three ‘alien’ space pirates (they were even dressed like pirates!) General Zod, Non and Ursa destroyed in that film, and it was a joint venture between the USA and Soviet Russia:

    In other words, humanity is being SET-UP for the last ‘threat’ proposed by Werner von Braun which would be an “alien threat”. The ramifications, speculations and consternations flow from there.

    I just ran across an interesting article at ArsTechnica:
    “A team of researchers was able to estimate the abundance of actinides* – elements with atomic numbers from 89 upwards – in asteroids, and thus what it must have been in the primeval Solar System. That analysis showed that supernovae are almost certainly not the source of the actinides.”
    The relevant point is:
    ” It seems that nearly half the plutonium in the Solar System came from a single neutron star merger. That is fascinating: with such low numbers of neutron star mergers contributing to actinide abundance, the variation from solar system to solar system must be huge. Imagine; we could have ended up in a solar system with almost no uranium or plutonium.”

    So, we (our Solar System) may be a chance-repository of rare, strategically-important elements. Enough to fight over?**

    ** Sitchin’s Anunnaki may have come for uranium or plutonium, not gold…

    • DanaThomas on May 18, 2019 at 2:20 am

      Actinides: this is food for though Goshawks.

      • goshawks on May 18, 2019 at 4:19 am

        Dana, a pertinent comment below that article:
        “If the authors are correct in their interpretation, then we need to add another variable to Drake’s equation: plate tectonics. It’s easy to forget this, but U and Th combined create 20 terawatts of energy each year; and this powers continental drift and volcanic activity (and, by virtue of that, nutrient inputs). If you need a nearby neutron star collision to get sufficient actinides to support this kind of planetary heat management, then the conditions of life may be much more rare than we anticipated earlier.”

      • goshawks on May 18, 2019 at 4:33 am

        And (on a roll):
        “…I seriously doubt it’s possible to leave one’s planet without being in a system with Uranium, Plutonium, or any of the other elements above Molybdenum. And unless they go right to fusion – which seems very unlikely, especially without such higher level elements – they would tap out of fossil fuels and revert back to more primitive stages. Any intelligent life in systems without these heavier metals would be stuck in the pre-industrial era, long term. Even early civilization would be more difficult without silver, gold, tin, or lead. So no bronze, and coinage would have to be something else.”

    • goshawks on May 18, 2019 at 2:21 am

      Also fascinating:
      “Origin of Solar System Elements (Periodic Table)”

      • goshawks on May 18, 2019 at 2:34 am

        And, note from the above 2017 “Origin of Solar System Elements (Periodic Table)”:
        Au (gold) is roughly 90+ percent originating from”merging neutron stars”
        Ag (silver) is roughly 70+ percent originating from”merging neutron stars”

        So, other solar systems might be deficient in those elements, for the same reasons discussed in the ArsTechnica article. Sitchin’s Anunnaki may have come for uranium or plutonium, plus the gold and silver also produced at the same time…

      • goshawks on May 18, 2019 at 9:55 pm

        Here is where the rest of the gold & silver comes from (long comment):
        “This is a nice article, but it’s a bit misleading, in that it suggests the only way to get elements heavier than iron is via rapid neutron capture (‘r-process’), either in normal supernovae or in something more exotic (e.g., neutron-star mergers). In fact, many isotopes of elements heavier than iron are made by a slow process of neutron capture (the ‘s-process’). This takes place inside moderately massive stars near the ends of their lives, during what’s called the Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) phase. … Much or even most of our strontium, zirconium, molybdenum, tin, barium, tungsten, mercury, and lead was produced this way (and smaller amounts of palladium, silver, platinum, and gold).”

      • goshawks on May 18, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    • Maatkare3114 on May 18, 2019 at 11:22 am

      Very interesting links goshawks, which lead me to other similar articles saying the same thing.
      The researchers found a vast amount of heavy elements in the solar system likely originated from a single neutron-star collision that occurred about 80 million years before the birth of the solar system. Based on the amount of material from this merger that managed to make it here, they suggested this merger happened about 1,000 light-years from the cloud of gas and dust that eventually formed the solar system.

      It would appear our solar system is abundant in rare elements, enough to fight over?…..yes.
      I’m glad you mentioned plate tectonics, although much discussion has taken place as to whether this is necessesary for life. Our world would certainly be very different without plate tectonics, weathering down the land without replacing it…Life may exist without it, but advanced intelligent life is another matter.

      I have all of Sichin’s books…there is way too much in these books to be discounted.

  5. Eve Leung on May 17, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    If we remember when our ocean was the highway for colonization, each countries sent out their own version of pirates to rob and sink their competitor’s fleet. It wasn’t so hard, all they had to do was just change their country’s flag to a pirate flag, rocket science is not required!

    All they did just move their “pirate” battle ground from our ocean down here to the “ocean” up there!

  6. goshawks on May 17, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Republican Ted Cruz, chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Aviation and Space. In my opinion, Cruz would not gotten so far up in the System without being fully Owned. So, he will say anything he is Told to say. Given that, this Space Force pablum is part of a careful, systematic campaign to ‘shape’ public awareness. But, to what end?

    Part of it is to obtain dollars for the MIC, of course. Ordinary FUD tactics. But within the Gizar point-of-view (Ancient War. Remnant cultures. Continuity of purpose.), why the ramp-up? It feels like something is up…

  7. Roger on May 17, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    If they aren’t capable of stopping me from wrestling control of those precious metal laden asteroids outside of Earth’s legal jurisdiction then they don’t deserver to profit from them. Out in no man’s space its no holds barred and if you can’t take the heat then you have no business operating out there!

  8. zendogbreath on May 17, 2019 at 1:13 pm

    reading as i write: saw this note about an interview with clif high. i don’t trust him to not be co-opted but his past anecdotal information (like what he includes here) has repeatedly proven accurate and pertinent.

    he’s outlined an increase in military activity in south america probably aimed at antarctica.

    • zendogbreath on May 17, 2019 at 1:28 pm

      add a couple more memes to horrors crammed down our throats that the globaloneyists can be our saviors about. haven’t been able to figure why and how rfk jr and all have been allowed to be so even meagerly effective (let alone famous for) at litigation and propaganda against glyphosate, vaccines, 5g, internet censorship,………………….. even tronald dump seems able to get in on the game. all he has to do is tweet, or say or do something that undermines (even a little) any of these monstrosities that mr globaloney has so openly attacked humans with. bout the only consistency i’ve noticed is that none of these good cops to mr globaloney’s bad cop ever so much as notice crimes committed by voldemortistan (a small powerful too well funded country who must not be named).

    The Phoenix Lights incident of 1997 comes to mind here. All official explanations do not pass muster (again) and the consensus among most serious researchers is: this incident represented someone’s display of technology. If that ship was not ours the US branch of the military industrial complex must have been very busy trying to prepare a competing technology to counter what the US Deep State would consider to be an existential threat to its existence. This is roughly during the same period of time that CAF believes Mr. Global shifted the national debt in order to run a global government, so one wonders if these events are connected. In my opinion the context for Senator Cruz’s comments may find resonance here. I do agree both he and retired Senator Reid “know” a great deal about the occulted space situation with the US military industrial complex. They would also be the most likely senators to know whose technology this craft represented and how this demonstration in 1997 relates to other national events that have shaped US policy since these final days of the Clinton Presidency. I understand the fallacy of “assuming” these are all related, but one should not discard the notion as an idea for further analysis. It’s certainly less nutty than other researcher’s solution to the Phoenix Lights discussion, complete with whistle-blowers and whose analysis presents no context nor genuine, hard evidence. On its own the Phoenix Lights mystery appears to be an anomaly. I do not like anomalies within a pattern of data–especially when such a huge anomaly like this one could have a significant role in describing the pattern of data in hand. Then, there’s the Monmouth disclosures hovering in the background that add additional credibility to the whole premise. If there was an industry over which the Deep State might lose some measure of significant control, it would be the Military Industrial Complex.

    • Jarret on May 17, 2019 at 4:33 pm

      ((( US Deep State )))

    • Roger on May 17, 2019 at 4:46 pm

      The Phoenix lights looked like stuff I’ve seen released over Eglin in Florida by the air force; some kind of drone flares or heat signature decoys deployed in the formation of a giant wing. I’ve seen them deployed during Air Force maneuvers quite a few times and we even had a bunch of UFO MUFON hunters in Gulf Breeze oohing and aweing over them years ago, making me laugh. I tried to tell them they were launched by the air force for who knows what reason. Lost all respect for MUFON over that.

      • goshawks on May 17, 2019 at 8:34 pm

        Roger, you may want to dig deeper. The garbage-video splashed all over the MSM news was indeed a string of flares. Very obvious. However, this was part of the cover-up. Those flares were from a section of A-10s dispatched after the well-documented (multiple eyewitnesses) enormous, delta or flying-wing shaped craft slowly cruised at low altitude over the area. The flares were videoed and pushed everywhere , so the public could say “Just flares” and go back to sleep. The flares were the cover-up…

        (The authorities were even so freaked as to – in my opinion – command the State Governor to ‘execute’ that stupid alien-in-a-costume news event. Always follow the fear…)

        • Roger on May 19, 2019 at 4:02 pm

          I won’t believe it until I see it. Saw a flying saucer once in the middle of the day hovering over Morristown TN, don’t know if it was an ET or secret tech so I know they are real. After sitting motionless for a few minutes it slowly started moving off and then just disappeared either up into space or somewhere else.

      • OrigensChild on May 17, 2019 at 9:41 pm

        Roger, as Goshawks points out, this one doesn’t hold muster. The dates of the military exercise used to manipulate public opinion is straight out of the Project Bluebook’s Playbook. There were other red herrings offered at the time with dates corresponding to military exercises. Leslie Keane documented Gov Symington’s reversal in book form and TV documentary. What was seen in Phoenix is more like the platforms seen over New York’s Hudson River area in the 70’s and 80’s. As long as the data is ambiguous one has to look at context for clues. If the Phoenix Lights episode represents a Roswell moment the craft variation of the story remains in the table.

    • Robert Barricklow on May 17, 2019 at 5:37 pm

      To my mind’s eye it was a Nazi flying saucer that went down at Roswell. The U.S. the came up to speed; and then extended capabilities from there on. Almost all sightings are terrestrial in nature.
      It’s the unknown, unknowns that are the conundrum.

      • OrigensChild on May 17, 2019 at 9:25 pm

        I agree. Dr Farrell’s argument is compelling. Your suggestion for an active research program beginning then is one of the reasons I hesitate abandoning the idea that this might have been one belonging to the U.S. fleet under control by one of the factions of our Deep State. We don’t know.

  10. Robert Barricklow on May 17, 2019 at 11:39 am

    The carbon tax hoax to finance the alien invasion hoax paid for by the international cartel’s debt-based reserve currency hoax, approved through the government democracy’s hoax; and protect space stolen treasures w/the tax payer who in essence funded space & the militaries being used to protect private thieves.

    That just means that they know other (privateer) class rogues are already up there waiting for juicy metorite mining shuttles to plunder from Duke LuxemBourg. I doubt that they’re talking about Somalians in rubber dingies looking for oil tankers to loot…Somalians don’t have space helmets.. So they admit that technology already exists in the hands of people that arent government agencies………or that spaceships have already been made, held in private hands and has been granted ‘lee-way’ from official sovereign states to attack and plunder other sovereign state held assets… like space stations or terraforming plants or meteorite mining operations or deep black research stations that have nothing to do with human ethics..but they’re still admitting that the technology and ergo the threat already exists…..(Im thinking Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bigelow guy all have private space capable stuff already..and Elon Mush isnt famous for keeping technology patents to himself…

    When the Europeans came to America, the native American Indians didn’t fare to well. As we venture out into space, we may be the Indians/pirates. There may be those who object to our “planting flags” on territory they consider theirs. The Pope may just have some difficulty baptizing his new “flock”.
