In the past couple of days I've been indulging in some really wild high octane speculation, and I want to do the same today by recalling a story I've referred to before, and which has again been brought to my attention by G.B.

You'll recall that a strange series of events occurred prior to North Korea literally "coming to the table" and those historic meetings between Mr. Kim and Mr. Trump. There were all sorts of "preparatory events" if one is willing to indulge in some speculative dot-connecting. For example, there was the explosion at the Chinese chemical plant in Tianjin, an explosion that I blogged about because of its inherently peculiar signature. You might recall that pictures were taken of the site after the explosion showing a remarkably deep crater. Indeed, the crater was more like a narrow cone than the type of crater that would result from a chemical explosion. This led some on the internet, me included, to speculate that perhaps the plant had been taken out by a so-called "rod of God" kinetic weapon launched from space. Many speculated that this was the USA "sending messages" to China, but I was a bit more skeptical of the "who" than the "what", though I entertained it as a possibility.

Then came the earthquakes near North Korea's nuclear facilities. You might recall that this collapsed  the mountain where much work was carried out, and we were told that it was "tired mountain syndrome," i.e., that the North Koreans had so honeycombed the mountain with tunnels and galleries that the earthquake collapsed it. As tensions between the USA and that country mounted, Mr. Trump's rhetoric became very bellicose.

And then there was this very strange event:

And in this article from 2017, there is this:

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hinted at using a kinetic weapon on Tuesday while discussing tensions with North Korea when he made a Freudian slip.

Mattis was asked whether there was “any military option the US can take with North Korea that would not put Seoul at grave risk,” Mattis responded, “Yes, there are, but I will not go into details.”

Later during the press conference, another reporter questioned Mattis and caught him off-guard:

“Just to clarify, you said that there were possible military options that would not create a grave risk to Seoul,” a reporter asked. “Are we talking kinetic options as well?”

“Yes, I don’t want to go into that,” Mattis responded.

What Mattis was referring to was this system, outlined later in the article:

However, the U.S. also has other kinetic weapons in its arsenal that would allow Trump to “totally destroy North Korea” — one of weapons system is the “Rods from God.”

What is the Rods from God? The “Rods from God” is a part of the directed energy weapon family; it’s a kinetic energy weapon.

The rods are directed munitions, the higher you are (the greater your distance from the planet), the greater the kinetic energy you have.

In 2004, published in Popular Science, Eric Adams writes:

A pair of satellites orbiting several hundred miles above the Earth would serve as a weapons system. One functions as the targeting and communications platform while the other carries numerous tungsten rods–up to 20 feet in length and a foot in diameter–that it can drop on targets with less than 15 minutes’ notice. When instructed from the ground, the targeting satellite commands its partner to drop one of its darts. The guided rods enter the atmosphere, protected by a thermal coating, traveling at 36,000 feet per second–comparable to the speed of a meteor. The result: complete devastation of the target, even if it’s buried deep underground. The two-platform configuration permits the weapon to be “reloaded” by just launching a new set of rods, rather than replacing the entire system.

In the final analysis Mattis' apparently inadvertent answer to the reporter's question is capable of two explanations: (1) He was deliberately putting out disinformation to the effect that the USA has already deployed such weapons in space, when it really hadn't, in order to bluff the North Koreans and force them to the table, or (2) he was admitting, apparently inadvertently, that it already has them and has already deployed them. Either way, if the intention was to force the North Koreans to the table, it worked, and for a very simple reason: no nation would want to take the gamble that the USA was not bluffing, not even North Korea.

Which brings us to Iran and a strange pattern in evidence once again. During the recent dramatic increase following the US drone attack on General Sulemeini, an earthquake occurred near that country's reactor facility. That could be merely a coincidence, as Iran is in an earthquake "hot zone," and tremors at or near the facility are a common occurrence. But the occurrence of a strong quake in the context of political tensions and events also fits another pattern that we've seen at work before: sell offs of Indonesian sovereign bonds without any explanation, and then, a week later, an earthquake and the dreadful Indonesian tsunami. Then there was the new government in Japan, requests for the USA to shut down its base in Okinawa, and the then US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates' threat to Japan to change course, or there would be dire consequences. Then came the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami. These types of events have led other researchers and I to posit the hypothesis that "natural events" in highly charged political contexts are probably not natural events, but the use of exotic technologies to send messages.

If this whole line of high octane speculation be true, then hovering in the background of the current tensions is General Mattis' remark, which no doubt the mullahs in Tehran are quietly and covertly pondering. And that quiet pondering might issue in "sudden and inexplicable changes of direction" just as it apparently did in North Korea's case.

And there's another party probably watching all these developments in Beijing, because, after all, to build out silk roads and railroads across Eurasia, there's one overriding problem: Railroads are permanent features on the landscape, and can thus be pinpointed for interdiction, and rods of God would certainly do the trick.

Just a thought.

See you on the flip side...

    If a kinetic missile had been launched from space there would be a huge creator and nothing left of the sites or anything else for miles around. It would have to be an energy weapon of some kind. If there is an aquifer under or around targeted sites my guess would be an ultra high frequency beam penetrating into the aquifer and splitting atoms causing a huge explosion in the aquifer. What’s really being added to fracking waste that might facilitate this more easily? Probably not reliant upon addatives to water table but they weaponized the air with jet fuel addatives so maybe the ground waters as well.

    • Roger on January 17, 2020 at 12:03 pm

      I meant supper heating and splitting water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen then igniting them once you get enough split for the magnitude of explosion you desire.

    Re China Lake…..IMO, we need to look at worldwide events as, not a war between countries, but as a war between the Deep State & those who wish to wrest the control back from them!!

    It was quite shocking when I learned that the world, in its present form, has been run by the pedophiles….who knows for how many centuries??? It seems many of these DUMBS have been used for nefarious purposes & needed to be taken out; even within our own borders.

    IMO, it is mostly impossible for the casual observer to “read” the events we see going on around us. One big reason is that there are so many pieces of the puzzle missing…for us….as we have no clue as to how many “others” are involved in this picture!!!

    I don’t know if any of you have seen what happened with Yig over the past few days, but she unknowingly stumbled across a website & went down the Rabbit Hole, bringing to public attention what might be the next step “up” for us to begin understanding who controls this planet.????

    For anyone wishing to communicate with me, you can find me at [email protected].

    • zendogbreath on January 17, 2020 at 10:26 pm

      Lou, not sure who your calling Yig. Startpage was minimally helpful.

      I concur on the war. We our almost if not completely unable to discern reality. Read today that Dershowitsz is on or Trump’s impeachment defense lawyers. What does that say of Q’s credibility considering when one considers Trump’s and Dershowitz’ roles in the epstein psyop? Then there is the Iran shoot down psyop. Amazing Polly did good work on tracing the passenger manifest and its signifigance. Then there is the possibility that the whole shoot down was faked and that now that whole group of Iranian-Canuk scientist agents just went dark. Kinda like all those AIDS experts on that Malay flight over Ukraine? The one where the manifest read of a who’s who of Euro AIDS scientists but the crash site was scattered with small weeks old dried blood formaldahyde filled small Asian bodies perhaps those from the Malay plane taken to Diego Garcia?

      Oh my. That’s one way to cover a trail. Just have so many conspiracies on conspiracies to tangle up the stories and make all theories look like mush.

      • Loxie Lou Davie on January 18, 2020 at 9:47 am

        It is all so very confusing, isn’t it, ZDB??!!! In a way, it was rather interesting because of what Yig discovered in the It had been sitting there for a long time, but she was the one who decided to go down the Rabbit Hole to see what it might be!!

        If true….we have just found out the “next step up” in who might be controlling the planet!! But then, of course, there would be Someone Else in control over them….so who knows how far up the ladder we would ever be able to discover??!!! 😉

        It seems we ARE watching a movie play out as various factions are jostling for power!!! Glad I get to be in Observer Mode!!!

    When listening to Catherine Austin Fitts talk about the Impossible Burger;
    aka, the Burger Queen[it is jam-packed w/estrogen], I wondered what other estrogen loaded blind sides where out there in the: to-be-feminized-USA?

  4. Robert Barricklow on January 15, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Putin leaving soon?
    Neoliberal Medvedev to head Russian Security Council?
    Too bad; the times are a changing?

  5. marcos toledo on January 15, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    Justing wondering who our ruling class here in Puerto Rico pissed off. Two hurricanes a week apart two years ago and now a week into 2020 and two earthquakes is there a pattern to these events or is this just a coincidence.

    • Loxie Lou Davie on January 18, 2020 at 9:52 am

      You seem to be totally correct, Marcos, in assuming disasters are now a part of the “norm” & thing is, we “normies” are left with the puzzle of trying to figure out just who is controlling what!! Actually, youarefreetv has been following the PR scene very well. Then Yig’s discovery of glamiscalling,org puts a whole new light on world affairs!!!

    • Loxie Lou Davie on January 18, 2020 at 12:00 pm

      Marcos….check out MrMBB333 for a bit he did on PR on the 17th!!! I used to live in Puebla, Mexico so I know about earthquakes!!! 😉

  6. Laurent on January 15, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    Whenever this type of story comes out, I have to ask myself how would the China Lake incident fits into this series of events.

    If this is Rod of God and it is the US’, why would they fire at their own facility? It is a large testing ground for munitions so I guess this would make sense to send one there so they could further study its effects but I would have thought this had been done before. Could it have been a demonstration for someone? Maybe Iran? Or maybe it was for Japan which has been getting involved in High speed rail projects with Russia and trying as best as it can to participate in the new silk road project.
    In the context of world events, the China Lake Earthquake would have taken place 3 weeks after the June 2019 incident were 2 oil tankers (one Japanese) attacked purportedly by Iran when Shinzo Abe was meeting with the Iranian leadership.
    I suppose I’m more worried that this could be the actions of another global actor.

    • Robert Barricklow on January 15, 2020 at 3:02 pm

      Good question.
      They’ll certainly fire[literally] on their own citizens.
      But, will they fire on other factions w/in their same geographical proximity? Supposedly belonging to the same so-called nation state?
      Or, will they do so by
      masking/cloaking themselves in another guise?

      • Robert Barricklow on January 15, 2020 at 3:04 pm

        Oh. what a tangled web when;
        first we practice to… ?

    • Linda Thomas on January 15, 2020 at 3:10 pm

      What if the electrical grid inside the earth was used for transportation of kinetic energy to strike from inside the earth? Personally this is what I think happened 9/11

      • zendogbreath on January 15, 2020 at 3:46 pm

        Dew from below makes sense. Hard to picture kinetic weapons in that scenario.

        • zendogbreath on January 16, 2020 at 10:49 pm

          unless they were combined.

    • zendogbreath on January 15, 2020 at 3:43 pm

      China lake looked like elf not kinetic.

      Wonder who makes and designs the chips that control all. And the kill switches and back doors in those chips.

  7. DanaThomas on January 15, 2020 at 1:23 pm

    “Rods of God” and railways. Yes, they can interrupt a line. But even if the crater is bigger and deeper than conventional bombs or missiles, that section of line can still be replaced, more quickly and cheaply than, say, a naval vessel or a satellite. In other words, the advantages of Tellurocracy Vs Thalassocracy. If the conflict is to remain “covert”, and maintain the fig leaf of “plausible deniability”, the explosion would likely have to be at some industrial plant which, unsurprisingly, has a rail connection. If the conflict is “overt”, well, it would not be limited to just “kinetics”.

    • zendogbreath on January 15, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    Funny, just commented about weaponized acts of God/weather in this instance/Pakistan. Now here again, under the public cover of Act of God/chemical explosion.
    Yet the secret intelligence agencies under the public umbrella cover; and their private counterparts, same as public[in that they too, steal public funds] are in-the-know.
    As in God; the tricky part is Who. State actors, or organization like the Nazi international?

    Mattis is either slipping & sliding; and/or pushing & pulling. Either way message sent.

    Well, time does fly…

      What a family!
      [The Rod of God families; assuming these are not
      the first generation only]
      Of course; these weapons can’t be hacked; nor compromised in anyway[Remember the missile silos coming alive w/o authorization, and that was decades ago?].

      So, not only are these threatened nation-states arranging their financial houses under different systems; they’re having to acquire these same Rod of God technologies, to counter Act of God warfare.
      After all, when two or more can join in the fun; a whole new set of parameters enters the global stage of strategies & countermeasures.
      Is the unipolar weaponization board, in for some multipolar structural adjustments?

      It getting more and more dicey w/all these players; especially, when they can mask themselves as another player to take the a hot-headed immediate response.

      Will the real perpetrator please stand up?

    Reoccupation of Iceland – without a pretext – is probably just forcing some obstructive serfs into servitude, to the Greater Satan:

    Founders of the USA are proven Jesuit spies, and thus their imperial superstructure is just a subordinate slave, to the papal Super Satan.

    Rottenchild is probably to be identified, as Lesser Satan, crying crocodiles up his wailing wall, of frozen money tears of Moloch.

    Persians are the original Isra-elites, who remained in Babylon, and today expose the false narrative of the parasitic pretenders.

    • justawhoaman on January 16, 2020 at 9:32 am

    • Loxie Lou Davie on January 18, 2020 at 10:04 am

      anak…..Sometimes I find it hard to “follow” what you are saying, but think I got it with the “parasitic pretenders!!! Turns out they seem to be small potatoes when it comes to ruling the planet as their strings are pulled from higher up!!

      If what Yig found on is true then we have just discovered the “next step up” in Global Control…..but then, there would be Someone over that system as well, right?!!

      Maybe it would just be easier to stay within the little “God” box & not have to figure out anything…..blame everything on “God” or expect that figure to “fix” everything for us!! 😉

      I recently discovered Billy Carson who has been led on a Lifetime Journey of reading most of the Ancient Writings & pulling all the threads together, which DO seem to point back to the Annunaki & Mesopatamia. We seem to be living, still, under the system they installed here on Earth. My question is……Is that system being upended before our very eyes???

  12. goshawks on January 15, 2020 at 7:17 am

    The key behind “Rods from God” is kinetic energy. Mass x (velocity-squared). It does not matter from where the velocity comes. Orbital bombardment is one source. Speed from a rocket-powered booster also would do the trick – whether launched by aircraft, sub, or ground-battery. Hypersonics is currently “in.” And that is only what is announced outside Black Projects…

    (What General Mattis remarked-on concerning North Korea may have been a ‘decapitation strike’. Something coming-in at near-orbital speed would allow virtually no reaction-time between detection and hit. Perfect for nailing someone at dinner…)

    • Robert Barricklow on January 15, 2020 at 3:09 pm

      Makes me think of asteroids being captured and technologically targeting whomever is not taking orders.

      When more start this game;
      where & when does it eventually end?

      Planets exploding?

    • Loxie Lou Davie on January 18, 2020 at 10:10 am

      goshawk….I think we “normies” hardly understand fully what is going on with the sat systems that have been deployed. Dr. Katherine Horton experiences on a daily basis how these sats can be used to torment people with their targeting!! As she states, the psychopaths didn’t go away after WW2!!!

      It used to be that Britain was “in control” because they ruled the seas, right?!! Now it will be who rules our “space”!!! Then one has to wonder just how many different entities are battling for that “space”?!! 😉
