As most regular readers here know, throughout the week as I receive email articles from readers of this site, sending in articles that they think might be of interest, I do a "presort" of the emails everyday, glancing them over to get an idea of what the article is about, and slotting them for the "big sort" on Sundays, when I sit down to go through the emails that made it into what I call the "finals folder."  These I go through again to see if there's any "trend" to follow up on, which for our informal purposes here, I define as three or more people sending articles about the same story. Some weeks we have a flood of those, other weeks - like this one - are more dispersed, and it's those weeks that often turn up the "nugget" stories, those little knots of gold hiding on the back pages of newspapers or magazines, or on the obscure website.   So as the world grinds on politically, geopolitically, and financially, our focus this week is going to be on some unusual things.  The majority of those things will be about emerging technological capabilities or ideas, but tocay's feature, coming from E.E. (to whom we are grateful for this find), is about a strange scenario, and the headline will explain it all:

Could a Rogue Billionaire Make a Nuclear Weapon?

What's in the article is even juicier than the headline, and as one might expect, the article has my high octane speculation motor in overdrive with afterburners. The first thing we're told right out the gate is that the Pentagram studied the idea of rogue billionaires building their own nuclear weapons, and that it was a study that the Wall Street Journal was made aware of five years ago, during the Administration  of Orange Man Bad.  You'll recall that upon the (s)election of Bai Den Dzhao by the overwhelming majority of ballot stuffers, there was talk being floated by the Speakerette of the House of Misrepresentatives, Ms. Nancy P.. that the U.S. should consider turning the country's nuclear football over to a committee, so that the rogue billionaire Orange Man Bad would not use it to start a nuclear war.  Of course, at the time I thought that Speakerette Pelosi was more concerned about the mental and moral condition of Bai Den Dzhao than she was about Orange Man Bad, but wasn't saying so publicly for perfectly understandable political and hypocritical reasons. If I were the cabal behind all the shenanigans we've seen during that (s)election and since, I wouldn't want him anywhere near the nuclear football either. Hopefully his masters in Beijing have continued to pay him well with the reminder "do not push the little red button in the briefcase."

That apparently got the guys and gals at the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency (DARPA) thinking the unthinkable (which is their job): what if Orange Man Bad already had developed his own nukes?

Ifirst learned of a secretive Pentagon-funded study about rogue nuclear entrepreneurs more than five years ago from Stephen Lukasik, a former head of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

We were talking about the Office of Net Assessment, the long-term analysis division of the Pentagon, famous in Washington policy circles for its predictions about the Soviet Union’s military capabilities and then later China’s rise. Lukasik mentioned that he had led several studies for the office, including one that looked at whether a private company or wealthy entrepreneur could produce nuclear weapons.

“We worked out what a private organization would do if it wanted to build and sell nuclear weapons,” Lukasik told me. “It turned out to be a fairly profitable business.”

Intrigued, I asked if he would share a copy. A few days later Lukasik, whom I had known for two decades, sent me all four volumes of the study, which was completed in 2013. The report laid out in exquisite detail, including staffing levels and cash flow projections, how such an enterprise could operate.

It would take as little as a billion dollars’ investment and five years to produce the first bomb, the study concluded.

Now you'll note that the whole premise here is that the rogue billionaire is doing this for fun and profit. It's an arms business, nothing more. One can even imagine the what the automated phone answering service sounds like: "Welcome to Trumnuke Weapons Bazaar and Luxury Resort Hotel. For Tactical Nuclear weapons, press one. For Strategic Nuclear Weapons, press two. For Isomer Bombs, please press three. For Red Mercury Bombs, please press four. For hotel and Casino reservations, please press five. (You press two). For strategic weapons in the 100 to 200 kiloton range, press one. For strategic weapons in the 200 kiloton to half megaton range, press two. For warheads with greater yields, please stay on the line, and a design specialist will be with you shortly." (Cue soothing music.)

The article even outlines how relatively easy it would be to do, merely by compartmentalizing the manufacture among several corporations all held by the same corporate master.  For those who've studied the West German nuclear program of the late 1970s and early 1980s, the DARPA recipe was followed almost to the letter:

The report read like background notes for an airport thriller: A Bond-villain-like corporation would set up shop as a legitimate business, managing a series of nominally independent subsidiaries responsible for different parts of weapons production in locations around the world. One company, for example, would be responsible for designing the centrifuges; another would produce the highly enriched uranium; a third would do the chemical processing. A company could even work directly with a rogue nuclear power. “Would our hypothesized enterprise ever go into partnership with North Korea? Or perhaps with Iran?” the report asks.

Needless to say, all this is nuclear fuel for today's high octane speculation. Making nuclear weapons for the use of "non-state actors" is a scenario that I think is increasingly plausible, since the postwar world is full of such non-state actors, from my hypothesized "Nazi" or "Fascist International" to the World Economic Forum (if, indeed, the two entities are indeed distinct... the jury is deliberating on that one, but having it headed by der Hochklaus Freiherr von Blohschwab und Bloviation is not helping its image). One might indeed envision such an entity with facilties spread out over the planet under a web of corporations, but each part of the web controlled by a much larger and hidden coordinating body.  Or one could simply buy nukes outright from a nuclear power willing to sell them, and do so via a similar network. Indeed, you might recall that during the 1990s, there were a number of such stories of this or that non-state actor group attempting to buy so-called "red mercury", a substance supposedly originating from the Soviet Union, and which supposedly enabled the production of thermonuclear weapons without the need for an a-bomb as the "fuse."  Most nuclear experts at the time were extremely skeptical that such a substance existed, and most still are, the lone exception back then being Sam Cohen, inventor of the neutron bomb.

What intrigues me about this article, however, is the timing. After all, the Pentagram-DARPA study was done over a decade ago and first surfaced to the Wall Street Journal's reporter's attention five years ago, during the Administration of Orange Man Bad, which leads to the reasonable conclusion that the guys and gals at the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency were afraid that he might go off the "insurrection" script and launch a nuclear war.   So here we are again, with Orange Man Bad leading in most political polls, and the nuclear story is being trotted out again.

So where's the high octane speculation using afterburners? What if, behind the rhetoric, they are afraid of something else? What if "they" are afraid, not of "rogue billionaires" but of "fed up billionaires"?  And additionally, what if they're afraid of a lot of "fed up people" who are represented by a lot of fed up billionaires? Orange Man Bad isn't the only fed up billionaire out there.  There are some others, and some of them have even had the temerity to question the likes of Baal Gates or der Hochklaus. And who said they are restricted to non-state actors? What about non-federal but still state actors?  The old Tom Lehrer song Who's Next quips that with the nuclear proliferation of the 1960s, it was only a matter of time before Alabama got the bomb.  Nuclear weapons are, after all, the great levellers in more ways than one. They enable their possessor, no matter how small or insignificant a player on the world stage by other measures, to have influence.   Having "rogue billionaires" out there with "rogue nukes" is a handy bit of meme preparation if you want to create a false flag and demonize an entire group of people.  It's even handier if you intend to demonize state governors for defying federal policies because they're (justifiably) fed up.

But I also rather suspect that DARPA has moved beyond rogue nukes in the hands of rogue billionaires or stubborn governors.  Nukes are just too dangerous, expensive, and so on. The newest trend is rogue billionaires with their own independent space launch capabilities, able to place satellites into orbit, satellites that just might include things like tungsten rods to drop on targets from space. There's a lot of "upset" people out there because Mr. Globaloney has overplayed his hand, doubtless at least in part to forestall  precisely such scenarios. But in fastening crazy policies on the planet, in clamping total  surveillance on everyone, in trying to force everyone to "go cashless", eat bugs, and accept all his narratives or be penalized, he has created the very anger, frustration, and the scenarios outlined here.  Back in the 1990s, President Clinton's Secretary of Defense William Cohen warned that these new and exotic types of weapons were already in the hands of non-state actors. Rogue nukes in the hands of rogue billionaires?

We've already moved way beyond that...

See you on the flip side...

    In one’s view, nukes, in the form of ordnance, as intimidating as they might be for the new idiot in high office, are too-oo messy a stick to brandish. An impressive engineering feat they might be, but they come with their own set of difficulties in maintaining and manning. There never seems to be an adequate algorithm for detecting rogue users causing an event that could wreck the planet. Blundering protocols that fail safety measures to deter incidental havoc are bad enough. There’s been plenty of those over the decades with regional populations still paying the price from exposure beyond their control.

    It would seem that that phrase [follow the money] is no-longer enough for investigative pursuit. One must now include the acquisition of assets, resources, and personnel (by extension, a population). Something that requires the financial backing of those with the means. A maneuver that gets played out more often these days as the numbers of the financially adept increase.

    It’s no-longer a matter of whether a State has the financing, assets, resources, and intellectual populace to pursue goals as a collective; It’s a matter of those [the billionaire class] with assets, resources, and intellectual populace in pursuit of goals of having a State at their beck’n’call. . . . . A rogue billionaire now in charge of a State. . . . Almost as if playing out those requisites of a false flag of sorts.

    Rumors of nukes might be useful….. but realistically, why go that route when we have designer bioweapons to do the job with less damage to the infrastructure? Make sure those intended for survival are immune ahead of time, and voila: Deploy. It’s a much simpler clean-up. Governments will harvest the inheritance taxes, real-estate will be sold and remodeled/ repurposed, National Guard will be sent out for the messier clean-up, and government will get to Save the Day. Get ready, T-Virus 2.0 will make its rounds soon enough. If I thought this scenario up, we can be sure They are already working on it. Covid was just a dry-run.

  3. gRant on February 6, 2024 at 2:41 pm

    I would not be surprised if individual actors do have the capability and resources to do this. I also think that some private satellites may also have nefarious capabilities that circumvent nation states.

    Thanks for the NIGHTMARES Joseph!

    IBM tosses a nuke in the direction of Bill Gates over a suspected patent violation. News at 11pm.

    Warren Buffet, after buying up thousands of acres of real estate just north of San Francisco has gone missing, also, there is a mushroom cloud over San Francisco, phone lines are down there and a red glow continues over the area for the past three nights. (This one is only half real)

    German Soccer fans were seen tossing heavy crates into the back’s of pick-up trucks and are heading down the central highway in Russia.

    If we all have nukes……does having a few nukes in the basement continue to even matter? That is a thought.

    (removed the blasphemous line about Jesus flying around on a carpet)

    If everyone can bring their own shotgun to High School……are we all just a bit safer? No?

    This thing gets worse if you don’t use money to set up your own production….you just buy a few from Luigi who lives on a certain island.

      The gospel hero was a mere tribal activist, who opposed the psychological warfare, by the Assyrian loyalists, who had been brought into the region, when Samaria fell, to Assyrian onslaught.

      Today, the Assyrian oligarchy is looking for leverage, to subdue tribal tendencies from mushrooming, and, it seeks to prevent Americans, from exploring green grass, across Russian fence.

      First Jack Sparrow, then Scott Ritter, now Tucker Carlson, and, the question is, who is next, to cross the Bering Strait, which leads, to the idea of a land bridge, keeping up with the trend?

      Happy tourists wanna go gung ho.

    Here’s part of what William Cohen Sec. of Defense said April 28, 1997 at the Sam Nunn Policy Forum hosted by the University of Georgia, “on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy”. There is some debate about whether he was simply speculating. He was answering a question about a false alarm anthrax scare days earlier. (See link after quote for more detail)

    “There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.

    So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that’s why this is so important.”

    • Richard on February 6, 2024 at 7:12 pm

      . . . probably why there’s more talk about these atrocities like endeavors but from presumed [official sources].

  6. Robert Barricklow on February 5, 2024 at 8:49 pm

    Of course Nazi International would be a player in nukes and other high-tech weapons of mass destruction; not to mention technologies of anti-gravity and other sought after game changers.
    Mafias and other “billionaire fascists” might be buyers; but most likely not generators, of new technologies. These billionaire buyers would be players in the underground black markets.
    Since the public side of global ledger is being privatized in the West; due to the nature of financial capitalism; the West will not be compet1tive globally. The West is extractive; not productive.
    The industrial capitalism of the BRICS, will be where the global economic growth and productive economies flourish on Earth & in space.
    And who know; perhaps there is an off-world source for all kinds of mischief, whose objectives are unknown, but whose methods are already in play and being used on Earth.

    But, the use of nukes to blame “others” in false flags are not to be ignored either.

    Or, “billionaires” setting up shop on the Moon, the fling rocks with precision to Earthly targets?

    I was just watching film of the fires currently underway in Chile, and what was that unburnt pallet (except for the edge closest to) doing next to the totally scorched car? (early in)

    It made me reflect on this article and Dr. Farrell’s analysis. The primary states with nuclear arsenals already belong to their oligarchs, so the rogue threats are likely to be their “disgruntled” billionaires. Time to reread the Ramayana and the Mahabarata.

      Scythian martial arts were invented, in the Crimean military training camp, in the 7th century BC, as a means, to produce the Parthian shot, which is decisive tactics, in defeating the Assyrian empire.

      Scythian martial arts were brought to India and Scandinavia, and became known, as Ashtanga Yoga and Odin’s sports, which means, that their presence is an anachronism in Mahabharata.

      Apparently, an epic of a great conflagration, in high antiquity, has adopted a contemporary military technique, for political gains, and left out the four diametrical opposites, only found in Odin’s sports.

      An Odin warrior is strong & fast, with willpower & self-restraint, and, while aware & foresighted, he is also independent & transcendent.
      (Note. This preliminary result, from 2021, which is still a work in progress, while figuring out the final correlations, between the seven seals on the sundial and Odin’s animals, and brothers, Will & Woe, who are Elohim & Yahweh. There is an updated version scheduled.)

      This is more correct:

      • anakephalaiosis on February 6, 2024 at 11:14 am

        BTW, Bhagavad-Gita, inserted into the Mahabharata, tells man, to be a good little soldier, wear a uniform, and do as ordered, which is the usual propaganda deification of the pleb pledge, to be happy cannon fodder, and subscribe to the “divine right of kings” doctrine.

        In contrast, Noah’s grapes, of the Scythian winos, is rugged individualism, by the middle finger, which is why the “diametrical opposites” are conveniently missing, in modern Yoga, because they are the dynamics, that produce autonomy, which always asks troublesome questions, like “why” war?

        Without the dynamics, Yoga becomes a mere health practice, a morning gymnastics for pot plants, which is nice, though not, what originally intended, which is to produce a backward shot, in mounted archery, as a means of asymmetric warfare.

        The Parthian shot bolstered steppe empires, and became obsolete, by the advent of gunpowder.

        • anakephalaiosis on February 6, 2024 at 12:37 pm

          BTW, even though gunpowder made the Parthian shot obsolete, that is, nevertheless, not the case with the Scythian revival, as a means in identity warfare.

          Americans will especially benefit, from expanding their frontier mentality, fulfilling the journey to the New World, by achieving closure, in Scythian Crimea.

          Americans may have thought, that closure was to be found in the Middle East, which is a dry well, because the twelve tribes found closure, in Scythian Crimea.

          That is, what the Scythian toast, at the Last Supper, means.

    This is nothing new remember James Burke’s first Connection series an episode titled Death In The Morning or Afternoon it shows him dragging a metal suitcase that contained a mockup of a nuclear bomb that program aired in the early 1980s like guess what such a weapon would look like today. Thanks, Richard for the homemade nuclear reactor I was going to bring that up too you even name him David Hahn.

    Don’t discount the Trump family as having space-age weapons. Recall it was his uncle from MIT that was tapped for to examine the treasure trove of Nikola Tesla’s experiments and papers upon Tesla’s death. It would be naive to think the Trump family didn’t put that knowledge to good use.

    In the sci-fi Farscape loophole fantasy, Dorothy Gale enters the Scarran moon, while dancing on the tables, wearing a mini nuke in the belt, rigged to blow, if her heartbeat, or temperature, were to rise, which is Molière’s theatrical play, as deterrence, against empires.

    In the proto-Scythian saga, there have been a couple of such deterrents: Firstly, when “Elijah’s curriculum” threatened, to undermine the monopoly of the patriarchal blessing, in the 9th century BC, and secondly, when the “Parthian shot” became the default steppe warfare, in the 7th century BC.

    Today, these deterrents haven’t lost their potency, because, firstly, Scythian Crimea is the proverbial lynchpin of the European identity, as its source of origin, and, secondly, Elijah’s curriculum – in its runic version – undermines the use of fake kingship, as mafia extortion, and protection racket of forced conscription.

    The Scythian Crimea is an idea, whose time has come, and, the royal pretender is an idea, whose time has gone.

    Would those rogue billionaires be conducting this nefarious activity, among other well known nefarious activities, in their secretive islands? Larry Page, co-founder of Google just bought his fifth island for 32M

    Larry Page, who crossed paths with David Hahn in the rarefied world of child computer geniuses in 1970’s Michigan, the same Hahn who almost built a nuclear reactor in his basement…
