The “Asteroid Porn” Continues

THE “ASTEROID PORN” CONTINUES: BRIDENSTINE’S LITTLE ...

May 8, 2019 By Joseph P. Farrell

You just can't make this stuff up, folks, and it's getting to be almost predictable. What I'm talking about is that weird "uptick" in stories having to do with UFOs, ETs, asteroids, and so on. In fact, there seems to be some sort of "asteroid porn" going on lately (a term "B" used in his email to me sharing this story). "Asteroid porn" is that special brand of "fear porn" that has to do with asteroids slamming into the planet and ending all life here, and hence, our Need to put Really Big Powerful and Exotic Weapons into Space to protect ourselves from that.

Oh... did I say slammed into the planet? Tch tch, shame on me. I meant to say landed on the planet, which is the exact language that NASA director Jim Bridenstein used (and which was caught in this article by one of our regular article-sharers, "B"). And not only do asteroids not slam into the planet but land, Mr. Bridenstine used that strange language in the context of another strange admission about the Chelyabinsk meteor of 2013:

NASA Issues A Warning: Meteorites Are "A Threat To The Earth!"

Now, let it be noted that this warning comes in the same temporal context as NASA's "asteroid drill" that I blogged about last week (See https://gizadeathstar.com/2019/05/of-asteroids-and-electrostatic-generators/ and also see https://gizadeathstar.com/2013/05/asteroids-are-in-the-news-again-well-at-least-in-russia/). I've been thinking for quite some time that the Chelyabinsk meteor incident may have been a case, not of an accidental near-collision asteroid event, but of a deliberate act of someone grabbing and throwing an asteroid. What made me come up with such a "so-far-out-there-it's-orbital" scenario were the strangeness of the contexts in which the Chelyabinsk incident occurred.

In case you've forgotten that context, or my reasoning for maintaining such a far-fetched notion, there were three primary reasons: (1) About a month before the Chelyabinsk Incident, Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev appeared and gave a talk about the need for asteroid defenses, and how Russia would have to "go it alone" in creating it if other nations would not create a planetary system. Asked about how asteroids might be deflected or destroyed, Mr. Medvedev offered the less-than-comforting vision of shooting hydrogen bombs at them, and then went on to mention "other" means which, in the context, were clearly more exotic and, to be noted, were left deliberately unspecified by Mr. Medvedev. It should be noted that Mr. Medvedev also had something of a "small history" talking about very weird things - including UFOs - on Russian television. (2) In more or less the same time frame as Chelyabinsk, there was that strange episode of the collision of a Russian and American satellite, which I argued was not accidental; someone had "collided" them to demonstrate a capability. Again, I left the "someone" unspecified. (3) Videos taken from the ground during the Chelyabinsk incident in some cases showed a "something" following the meteor mere seconds before it exploded, which, of course, led some people to speculate that the "something" was responsible for the meteor's destruction.

To put all of this review "country simple," there was something decidedly odd about the Chelyabinsk incident in my mind's eye, and there still is.

And that brings us back to Mr. Bridenstine's remarks, for he specifically mentions Chelyabinsk as a reason we should all be "concerned":

Bridenstine used the meteorite that exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in 2013 as an example of just how dangerous these space rocks could be to the Earth. The Chelyabinsk meteor had “30 times the energy of the atomic bomb at Hiroshima” and injured around 1,500 people. Just 16 hours after the crash, NASA detected an even larger object that approached the earth but did not actually land on it, he revealed.

“I wish I could tell you that these events are exceptionally unique, but they are not,” Bridenstine said. “These events are not rare - they happen. It’s up to us to make sure that we are characterizing, detecting, tracking all of the near-Earth objects that could be a threat to the world.”

Now, I don't know about you, but it looks to me as if Mr. Bridenstine may be, in his peculiar choice of words, corroborating those videos shown on Russian TV of a "something" apparently following the meteor, and perhaps taking it out. His choice of words about that object not landing on the Earth suggest that it was under control.

This strange statement, plus Mr. Medvedev's own prior to the incident, make me wonder: did NASA just issue its response to Mr. Medvedev, did it just issue its own interpretation of that incident?

I don't know about you, but it makes me wonder if, indeed, we're watching the unfolding of the Rosin Affidavit in real time...

See you on the flip side...
