Power Outages In The Bay Area, LA, San Diego & NYC…And Some…

This has been a strange time, for sure. Not only getting sick, and feeling so tired I’ve felt like a dishrag wrung through one of those old fashioned roller machine washing machines, but watching a parade of very weird news stories. This story is no different. It’s one of those stories that many people sent me versions of. As one might imagine, the story itself as reported was one of those “nothing to see here, move along” things, which naturally led many people, myself included, to question the narrative (what little narrative there was).

The story itself? Well, it’s nothing more than a peculiar power outage in the San Francisco-Bay area, LA-San Diego, and, a continent away, New York City:

Power outages affected hubs in three American cities. Power Outages Coincide in LA, New York, and San Francisco

Little explanation was forthcoming, leaving the field wide open to speculation. The official narrative remains focused on an inconvenient coincidence.

But there were also the usual explanations: terrorism, sabotage, and so on. I have to admit, that when I read the story, my first though ran to these lines. For one thing, the inclusion of the Bay area brought to mind the attacks on internet servers a couple of years ago, and for that matter, the attack on the silicon valley electrical sub-station, an attack that even by official lights was carried out by professionals. Then, too, there was the attack in Arizona that severed internet connections between Flagstaff and Phoenix.

Such simultaneous power outages might, according to some, be a similar coordinated attack:

“Total Chaos” – Cyber Attack Feared As Multiple Cities Hit With Simultaneous Power Grid Failures

Here’s why black-outs in 3 major US cities were almost certainly related

But if so, an attack by whom? And for what purpose? Strangely, all this happens within a broad time frame that is unusual in terms of events for other reasons: the attacks on Syria occurred, drills for nuclear attacks are planned in Manhattan, the world’s attention is focused on North Korea. Interestingly enough, the Zero Hedge article immediately above also entertains the ideas of cyber attacks, coordinated and directed electromagnetic pulses, and even a deliberate act by the federal government drilling and gaming out such attacks.

But then there was this, and this one really made my high octane speculation wheels go into overdrive:

Yesterday’s Broad Power Outage Likely Caused By Geomagnetic Storm

Now, stop and ponder that sequence for a moment: (1) the story of power outages in the Bay area, LA-San Diego, and NYC is reported; then, soon thereafter (2) various theories are put forward, including cyber-attacks, federal “drills gone live”, EMP weapons, and so on, and then (3) a day after the event and quickly after the theories, the idea of solar geo-magnetic storms are advanced, with corresponding data for the affected regions being provided. Interestingly enough, one of the sites – Zero Hedge – which first reported the story and then the cyber attack EMP theories, also quickly reported the solar storm idea.

It’s that sequence of reportage and speculations on the story that have me wondering. Leaving aside for the moment the possibility that the whole thing – including the various speculations – are all carefully contrived experiments in story-creation and manipulation (which for those following my CERN-Mandela Effect-Data Correlation Experiments-Multiverse ideas, I don’t rule out of the picture), assume for a moment that none of that is involved. What disturbs me is what remains when one strips the story of that speculative possibility. What remains are (1) power outages that appear to be (2) coordinated in distinct areas of the grid, (3) the idea of “attack”, and (4) solar storms.

Now that really is high octane speculation. It is beyond high octane. It’s cosmologically kooky speculation, for obviously, most people won’t think of “solar storms” and the idea of “deliberate attack” in the same conceptual space. It’s impossible. It would require the ability to engineer stellar-sized systems. And the only way to do that would be to engineer such affects via magnetic resonance and coupling the Earth’s and the Sun’s magnetic systems together. While all of that might be within the  realm of feasibility of some Mad Telsa-like scientist in the Mad Scientist Department of DARPA, the whole cluster of articles would also suggest the possibility of “pointing and aiming” the affect, which adds yet another level of impossibility to an already impossible task.

Double impossible. Nay, impossible, squared.

Whew! I feel much better now. I’m relieved.

Regular readers here know me by now: all these thoughts ran through my head the moment I heard about the story. It’s my job: I speculate on things. But this isn’t exactly my run-of-the-mill “high octane speculation.” If others are already thinking and writing articles about it, it would seem not to be very high octane at all.

Which Is To Be Master, That Is All

Dr. Farrell has many times described his concern for the compartmentalized halls of science and the “devil-may-care” attitude that research scientists take towards the implications and end-results of research projects. The progressive science meme has operated for a long time and shows only the occasional sign of caution (such as Google’s Kill Switch). It’s mostly a car without brakes careening into the future. It’s as if science is trying to outrun humanity’s black swan probability by risking black swans of its own.

With that in mind, I came across the following article in ScienceAlert:

“Scientists say it’s possible to build a new type of self-replicating computer that replaces silicon chips with processors made from DNA molecules, and it would be faster than any other form of computer ever proposed – even quantum computers.

Called a nondeterministic universal Turing machine (NUTM), it’s predicted that the technology could execute all possible algorithms at once by taking advantage of DNA’s ability to replicate almost perfect copies of itself over billions of years.

The basic idea is that our current electronic computers are based on a finite number of silicon chips, and we’re fast approaching the limit for how many we can actually fit in our machines.

To address this limitation, researchers are currently working on making quantum computers a reality – super-powerful devices that replace the bits of electronic computers with quantum-entangled particles called qubits.

Despite concerted efforts all over the world, no one has managed to build a fully functioning quantum computer.

But the secret third option here is a DNA-based machine that gets all the benefits of a quantum computer, without the headache of quantum weirdness, because it’s based on DNA doing what DNA does best – replicating.”

Ever since the Nazi’s developed transistors in the 1930’s, which operate in Boolean logic based upon the states of “On” and “Off”, scientists have been looking for ways to exponentially increase the “throughput” of thinking machines.

Starting in the 1960’s, it was realized that eventually miniaturizing transistors would run into overcrowding. Down in the nanoscale world of the silicon semi-conductor, it’s a veritable four-dimensional game of quantum bowling where pins and bowling balls are flying all over the place and showing up where they don’t belong.

The need for scalable information processing absorbs many billions of dollars of research worldwide and that’s just in the public domain. Now, let’s get to the papers published in the proceedings of the Royal Society.

Proceedings of the Royal Society

The basis of the effort is the goal of creating something called a non-deterministic Universal Turing Machine (NUTM).  The authors briefly touch on a core issue in mathematics today which is the problem of computing non-polynomial numbers. They describe a computing device that is a form of analogical computer, a device first envisioned by Wilfred Leibnitz in 1680 in his search for the characteristica universalis and analysis situs.

The team has performed in vitro application of DNA to solve the problems of computation of special, difficult polynomials. The team describes the many benefits of using DNA in computation.  To put all of this in “country diner” simple terms, the effort here is to utilize cellular mechanics, DNA, RNA, CRISPR and all the other tools of genetic and cellular manipulation to allow a DNA-NUTM to spawn a fantastic number of “threads” using DNA that is encoded and programmed using a new programming language (2002) called Thue (too-ay) to tell it what to do. The platform portends to solve intractable problems. But what problems could it create?

The authors quite openly describe their motivation:

“A major motivation for this work is to engineer a general-purpose way of controlling cells. The natural way cells are controlled is a very complex combination of DNA, RNA, protein, and small-molecule interactions (supplemented by epigenetics, etc.) with multilevel control implemented through specific chemical interactions. This makes cells very difficult to reprogram. Synthetic biology has sought to control cells through the design of simple switches, circuits, etc. and has some notable successes. However, we argue that a more radical and general approach is required: a DNA UTM. This would in principle enable arbitrary biological processes to be programmed and executed. The UTM could receive biological signals from the environment through interaction with transcription factors, etc. It could also use as effectors RNA/proteins generated using special sequences and RNA polymerase, etc.” [Emphasis mine].

And the rules for how these Thue-NUTM systems operate follow the language rules of Chomsky Grammar. That is, they have a grammar and this “language” governs the process through time.

In other words, this “device”, a relentless, threading, universal computing platform, intended for reprogramming animal (and human) biology using universal grammar that speaks DNA and solves really hard math problems or any problem that can be programmed. What if the program is: “learn how to escape from the lab.” If it is a UTM, a “universal” turing machine, it can solve any problem, given enough threads. It’s a platform that keeps spawning until it is informed that one of the threads has found the answer and according to the authors is limited only by the size of space itself and is time independent. This is the Holy Grail of generalized processing. This is a BIG deal.

On the benefit side this type of technology, if perfected, would make amazing discoveries. It would nearly enable pure bio-artificial intelligence, an alchemical machine.  Calling it an exponential improvement does not even cover it. It is a game-changing platform.

Dr. Farrell and I have had some discussions discussing why…

3D Printing Scrapbook: Additive Manufacturing On The Moon & Mars


Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 21, 2017

A few weeks ago I blogged about the possibilities of additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, for the construction of permanent buildings and dwellings on the Moon and Mars, utilizing the actual “Moon dust” and “Mars dust” found on the surface of those planets. For those who’ve been following the meme of mining asteroids, or the Moon, or Mars, the idea has definite overhead implications, for back in the late 1950s and 1960s when the USA and the Soviet Union were hatching projects for permanent human colonies on the Moon, the basic premise was that everything would have to be hauled up there and assembled in place. Gradually, things began to change. But the idea of using materials of those planets themselves to construct facilities was not part of the initial phases for establishing  such facilities. That, in their thinking back then, came at a much later phase.

But now there’s this important story, shared by Mr. M.H.:

New method for 3-D printing extraterrestrial materials

Note, this was a Google-sponsored study, using NASA-approved lunar and Mars dust simulants, to do a basic “proof of concept” experiment to demonstrate that one can, indeed, use such materials to manufacture tools and perhaps, ultimately, dwellings and other human facilities:

“For places like other planets and moons, where resources are limited, people would need to use what is available on that planet in order to live,” said Shah, assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering and of surgery in the Feinberg School of Medicine. “Our 3D paints really open up the ability to print different functional or structural objects to make habitats beyond Earth.”

Partially supported by a gift from Google and performed at Northwestern’s Simpson Querrey Institute, the research was recently published in Nature Scientific Reports. Adam Jakus, a Hartwell postdoctoral fellow in Shah’s TEAM lab, was the paper’s first author.

Shah’s research uses NASA-approved lunar and Martian dust simulants, which have similar compositions, particle shapes, and sizes to the dusts found on lunar and Martian surfaces. Shah’s team created the lunar and Martian 3D paints using the respective dusts, a series of simple solvents, and biopolymer, then 3D printed them with a simple extrusion process. The resulting structures are over 90 percent dust by weight.

Despite being made of rigid micro-rocks, the resulting 3D-painted material is flexible, elastic, and tough — similar to rubber. This is the first example of rubber-like or soft materials resulting from lunar and Martian simulant materials. The material can be cut, rolled, folded, and otherwise shaped after being 3D painted, if desired.

“We even 3D-printed interlocking bricks, similar to Legos, that can be used as building blocks,” Shah said.

This, of course, is a huge step in the development of permanent human habitations off planet, and, of course, for the commercialization of space in the form of mining celestial bodies, for the ability to manufacture needed tools on the spot, rather than drag them from Earth, is a crucial step in reducing launch weights, and as long as we’re thinking in terms of chemical rockets, launch weights, thrusts, and escape velocities, these developments are important. (Of course, I’m not backing off one iota from my belief that to be talking of permanent human habitations on other planets in the solar system, or of asteroid mining, is really to be implying a very different technology than chemical rockets. I’m simply using the chemical rocket model here for the purpose of discussion.)

As a proof of concept experiment, this is important, and it immediately points the way to the next step and stage, and hence to today’s high octane speculation and prediction. To be absolutely certain of the viability of additive manufacturing as a means of creating tools or eventually even habitats or dwellings on other celestial bodies, one will necessarily have to take a 3d printer to those bodies, land them on the surface, and quite literally scoop up the dust and see if it can be used to manufacture something under the more extreme conditions on those bodies. The next stage, in other words, will be for the space-faring powers to design lunar or Martian landers that will include a 3D printer and the experimental equipment needed to verify the feasibility of additive manufacturing on other celestial bodies. NASA has already taken a printer into space and printed simple tools in zero gravity, so this would be the next logical step.

We can expect, in other words, China, Japan, India, Russia, the Europeans, and the USA, to begin planning some such experiment in the near future (if they have not already covertly done so).

Negative Mass Created…?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 19, 2017

Well, folks, I’m back… sort of. I’m still quite tired, and trying to rest as much as possible. As you may have guessed my sore throat was more than that, it was full blown tonsilitis which had to be beaten back by anti-biotic IV drips and you name it. So as I indicated yesterday, Ms. K.M. has graciously contributed some new blogs to our “contributor posts” category to help tide things through.  For those wondering about the lost vidchat, yes, I do plan to reschedule, probably around the end of the month, as soon as I think my voice will stand the strain and not land me back in the same mess.

Meanwhile, of course, the news does not stop, and this story was seen and shared by so many I have to blog about it, and, of course, indulge my taste for high octane speculation. Indeed, this story has so many implications for our world I don’t know where to begin. Nonetheless, here it is: physicists have created a substance, in this case, ruibidium apparently suspended in a solution, and then super-cooled, with negative mass:

Physicists create fluid with ‘negative mass’

Researchers used lasers to cool the liquid in a tiny bowl. When scientists broke the bowl, the rubidium atoms rushed outwards. Scientists applied a second set of lasers to alter the spin of the out-rushing atoms. As a result, the atoms took on negative mass.

“Once you push, it accelerates backwards,” said Forbes. “It looks like the rubidium hits an invisible wall.”

Researchers say their latest experiments — detailed in the journal Physical Review Letters — were simpler and offered greater control over negative mass than previous attempts.

Where’s the high octane here? For one thing, it confirms in a major way what has long been suspected, namely, that matter near absolute zero would take on coherent properties and perhaps exhibit kontrabaric (negative mass) properties. This has been suspected since Evgenny Podkletnov first noticed strange “negative mass” like properties when experimenting in the 1990s with super-conducting rings. One effect is that negative mass – as the article indicates, and if we may speak analogically – acts as a kind of phase conjugation mirror: force applied moves it not in the direction of the applied force, but against it. Now, I mention that strange analogy simply to exhibit one possible use of this negative mass effect: phase conjugation, of an apparently almost perfect nature, which of course, would have benefits for various optical technologies, including, of course, weaponry applications. That of course is stretching things way beyond the article, and in a very bizarre direction, going way out on to the end of the twig where the weight of the speculation far exceeds the evidence and reasoning strength of the twig. Perhaps I’m simply loopy and still feeling the aftereffects of antibiotics. Then again, such bizarre brainstorming is a trademark of people in various agencies, say, like DARPA. We’ll get back to them in a moment.

However, and as I think will be obvious, the much more interesting possibility here are the lift and propulsion possibilities. Obviously, negative mass isn’t quite the same thing as “anti-gravity”, but it’s in the same stadium, and, most importantly, the new experiment is much simpler in terms of its mechanisms of controlling the phenomenon:

Researchers say their latest experiments — detailed in the journal Physical Review Letters — were simpler and offered greater control over negative mass than previous attempts.

“What’s a first here is the exquisite control we have over the nature of this negative mass, without any other complications,” said Forbes.

Now, normally my “routine” here is to do the “high octane speculation” stuff last, and then sign off with my usual “see you on the flip side.” But today I hope you noticed something about that article, which is why I got to the high octane speculation stuff first. Notice, that as far as the article is concerned, the new “negative mass” fluid is good for only a few “practical applications” that will not directly impact the world our children or grandchildren will live in:

The success may allow for exploration of strange phenomena like black holes and neutron stars.

Black holes and neutron stars. From a substance with negative mass, that accelerates in the opposite direction of any force applied to it.

I can hear the guys at the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency (DARPA) even now: “Yup. That’s about it folks. Neutron stars and black holes. Nothing to see here, just a bunch of arcane theoretical stuff. No practical applications. Move along… nothing to see here…”

Now, what if we spun a bunch of this stuff up in the… oh never mind…

But speaking of “spin”, here’s another version of the story:

https://news.wsu.edu/2017/04/10/negative-mass-created-at-wsu/

Note, this statement:

To create negative mass, the researchers applied a second set of lasers that kicked the atoms back and forth and changed the way they spin. Now when the rubidium rushes out fast enough, if behaves as if it has negative mass.

In other words, the implication is that rotation, and mass, are related, and if that’s the case, then perhaps we’re looking at a phenomenon with broken symmetry and polarity. Electrogravitics, anyone?

Merging Laser Beams Into One Beam [Where Have I heard That Before?]

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 12, 2017

I received the following article this week from Mr. J.K., and when I read it, I had to smile… very nervously, for it seems that scientists have figured out how to combine several laser beams into one beam, to increase the power of the emergent beam, and also to reduce the heat generated from just one large, rather than several small, beams. That, of course, is the premise of George Lucas’ rather fanciful one-shot planet-destroying weapon from his Star Wars movies, the Death Star. But, believe it or not, that’s not what made me smile nervously, for obviously, humanity is nowhere near being able to construct an object that big to house and aim an equally gigantic laser, much less to move it through space.  What made me smile nervously was…

… well, read it for yourself:

It’s Now Possible To Combine Lasers Like In The Death Star

Just for kicks, we can add the following much more scientific article, before returning to the first:

Photonic Frontiers: beam combining – Combining beams can boost total power

Note, that in the second article, it is admitted that combining several beams into one can be a method of dealing with the problem of the tremendous heat that lasers generate, and also that it is a method for increasing power, with this very important caveat:

Combination of larger arrays of laser elements to produce good quality beams has been demonstrated only at lower powers. Other challenges include balancing the tradeoffs between diode arrays and arrays of fiber lasers, reducing the light lost to side lobes, and efficiently combining light from input arrays with relatively low fill factors.

The big questions are how high can the power go, and how well will it scale?

Our friends at phys.org are a little more “flashy” in their coverage of the phenomenon:

The Star Wars ‘superlaser’ may no longer be sci-fi

Diamond makes laser beams more brilliant

Basically, the new technique involves shooting several laser beams at a very pure diamond, which due to its lattice properties combines the incoming beams into one outgoing beam, and at the same time changing its frequency. The result is an increase of power in the beam, without the increase of heat that would be generated by one beam to begin with.  Then comes this admission from the first phys.org article cited above:

Although other materials have exhibited the same type of beam combining properties, the choice of diamond is essential for high power. The power-transfer effect at the heart of the device, called Raman scattering, is particularly strong in diamond. Also, crucially, diamond is outstanding for its ability to rapidly dissipate waste heat.

At this point, my calm smile, brought on by confident knowledge that we were nowhere close to being able to build gigantic moons with laser beam-combining to blow up planets (much less actually be able to move the thing), began to acquire a slight twinge of nervousness, for the final statement indicated that “they” were testing the whole technique on a variety of materials, doubtless to find the most optimal for power output and heat dissipation.

Which brings us back to the first article that Mr. J.K. sent me, where, sure enough, my worst suspicions were confirmed:

Planetary destruction is not on the cards for this technology, but it has applications for both defense purposes and scientific analysis. Laser technology is crucial in many areas and this will allow lasers to go beyond the current power limits.

“Researchers are developing high power lasers to combat threats to security from the increased proliferation of low-cost drones and missile technology,” Professor Mildren explained. “High power lasers are also needed in space applications including powering space vehicles and tackling the growing space junk problem that threatens satellites.” (Emphasis added)

And of course, what can be used to zap “space junk” into vapor can be used to zap satellites, or missiles, into vapor… and one day, perhaps, on a sufficiently large orbital platform, to be used in more horrific offensive strategic “mission configurations” against ground targets…

Smile. Remember, we’re nowhere close. Remember, that when H.G. Wells started writing about atomic bombs in his science fiction at the turn of the last century, it took a whole 45 years to invent them. Have a nice day.

Smithsonian & The State Department Team Up


Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 11, 2017

This interesting article was sent by Ms. K.B. and it’s an indication – at least to me – that one of my favorite “high octane speculations” might be true. But before we get to that, here’s the article:

Smithsonian and U.S. Department of State Partner on Emergency Cultural Heritage Work in Iraq

Ostensibly, the partnership is part of an effort to preserve the remains of the ancient city of Nimrud from further destruction by radical jihadists, which in turn helps to promote “dialogue” and “mutual understanding” between societies “under stress”:

“Nimrud is part and parcel of Iraqi heritage and of our common patrimony,” said Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Mark Taplin. “What ISIS has sought to destroy, we are determined to set right. It is in America’s interest to contribute to a better future for Iraq. Time and time again, we have seen how collaboration in cultural heritage protection and preservation fosters dialogue and understanding within societies under stress. And in supporting this project, we hope to inspire others—in the region and in the international community—to help redress the damage done by ISIS at Nimrud and at countless other cultural-heritage landmarks in Iraq and in Syria.”

The project also includes a participating role for the University of Pennsylvania:

The Smithsonian also convened a “Protecting the Cultural Heritage of Religious Minorities” workshop in 2016 and created the training manual “Guide to Mosul Heritage” with the University of Pennsylvania, the U.S. Committee of the Blue Shield and the COCOM Cultural Heritage Action Group.

This is significant since the University of Pennsylvania’s online “sign list” of cuneiograms is widely used by scholars of cuneiform tablets.

So why am I boring you with all of this stuff about a mundane project to preserve Iraq’s cultural heritage, and that there is a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and the State Department?  Here’s where one of my long-held and favorite high octane speculations or hypotheses comes in. I have thought, with a few other people, that ever since there was a US military intervention in the Middle East, beginning with the Gulf War, that there was more than an “oil” agenda going on. To be sure, the present conflict in Syria and the confrontation between the US (and behind the scenes, Israel and the [out]house of Saud) on the one hand, and Russia and Iran on the other, is about oil, oil pipelines, and, of course, the old conflict between Suni and Shia Islam. What is that “other agenda”? Antiquities. From Persia to Libya, that region of the world is awash with antiquities, tablets, texts, lore, artwork, temples, ziggurats, pyramids – you name it.

I have maintained that if one accepts that some of those ancient texts – particularly those from Mesopotamia, modern day Iraq – are about ancient “cosmic, interplanetary wars” of “the gods”, and reads them from the standpoint of modern advances in science and technology, some truly astonishing things are said in those ancient texts, and that there are even indications of advanced weapons technologies. On this basis, I have always maintained a suspicion that the invasion of Iraq, at a very deep level, was not just about oil, but about the search for clues to those putative ancient texts, and possibly, the technologies they describe, in other words, antiquities.

In this regard, a collaboration between the Smithsonian and the State department would seem to corroborate – at least, in a very broad, contextual way – my basic hypothesis. Of course, there is nothing unusual about such collaboration between foreign affairs and antiquities departments of governments: many European nations, particular France and Great Britain, have long had such partnerships between their foreign ministries and their national museums and antiquities scholars. So what’s the big deal?

Drilling down a bit deeper, as many readers of this website are probably aware, for many years there have been stories circulating in the alternative research community of the Smithsonian’s role in locating ancient sites, and removing, and even destroying, archaeological evidence that does not fit the standard academic “narrative” of ancient human history and prehistory. In other words, it has been busily engaged in the suppression of evidence and, that means, in the acquisition of evidence to begin with, in order to suppress it. While there has never (in my opinion) been any definitive and compelling proof of this activity, there is at least enough information out there (again, in my opinion) to raise significant questions and point to significant indications of the possibility of such activity. Why is that important? Recently a story appeared that an ISIS leader’s apartment was found containing antiquities presumed to be destroyed. Funding terrorist activities through the black market in antiquities is, indeed, one of the funding mechanisms for such groups. And again, we’ve all seen videos of jihadists blowing up this or that ancient wall frieze, or carving, or statue. Some, viewing these videos, have suggested that they were counterfeit “artifacts” specially constructed to “blow up”, so that the real one, for whatever reason, could be removed permanently from the public view and record. Why look for dead Nazis who, supposedly, were executed by Hitler for participation in the bomb plot? Similarly, why look for antiquities which, supposedly, were blown up?

I’m suggesting here in today’s high octane speculation, that if one combines this article with those stories of archaeological “recovery and suppression” by the Smithsonian (stories, which, incidentally, come from the 19th century, see my Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men), a very different picture emerges of the activities. Indeed, it is important to remember in this regard the USA’s own deep and covert role in the creation of ISIS and other such groups to begin with, the very groups “destroying” certain antiquities.

The bottom line for me? I’m suspicious of the story.

See you on the slip side…

Really?!?!…Red Mercury, AGAIN!? [Part 1]

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 8, 2017

Last Thursday, for those of you who caught it, I talked about a short article that appeared on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s website. The article had been shared by Mr. I.R., and when I saw the headline of the article, needless to say, I knew I’d at least be blogging about it if not talking about it. As it turned out and as I stated on last Thursday’s News and Views from the Nefarium, Red Mercury is back in the news, albeit, in a small way, and as I said Thursday, I might and probably would blog about it for people who don’t watch the News and Views. This is that blog, and there are a few updates. In any case, here’s the article that caught my attention:

Downtown streets closed amid ‘red mercury’ investigation

There you have the story: a man walks into the regional office of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, who allegedly was carrying ‘red mercury.'” As I pointed out in my News and Views, the diction is a bit ambiguous (especially considering the state of education today). Was it the man who was from Africa? or the red mercury? As I also pointed out in my News and Views, according to the ‘red mercury legend,’ the substance actually originated in Russia, being the product of their cold war black projects researches in thermonuclear weapons. Indeed, the legend of the substance has it that it was a psyops “substance” deliberately created as part of join international anti-terrorist operations being conducted by the CIA, the German BND, and the post-Soviet Russian security services in shutting down terrorist rings and Russian black markets sales of nuclear and thermonuclear weapons. The substance  itself was entirely fictional. Indeed, there were novels and a few non-fiction books that came out in the early 1990s about the substance. Red Mercury was the thermonuclear scare of the early 1990s. But again, the substance itself, according to conventional wisdom, orthodox narratives, &c., was entirely fiction. It didn’t exist.

That, at least, is the conventional wisdom of the “red mercury legend.”

So when the Atlantic Journal Constitution ran this article, my first reaction was, quite literally, “What!? Why revive the whole story now?” We’ll get to that in a moment, but before we do – for it’s today’s high octane speculation – ask yourself this important question: “If the substance was fictional, why did they keep re-running the same scam, again and again, including (if my memory recalls) some sales involving African intermediaries in the mix? How did they sell the story to apparently credulous buyers?” Indeed, as one very astute listener to my Thursday News and Views pointed out while I was talking and recording (I didn’t see his remarks until after I had finished the recording, and hence could not respond to him in real time), the “red mercury” story in Atlanta apparently ran concurrently with some sort of “drill” that was taking place, and that, of course, raises the suspicion meter into the red zone: are they preparing an operation, false flag or otherwise, involving nuclear weapons? Given that “red mercury” is supposed to originate in Russia, this is a rather harrowing thought to contemplate, given the current climate in the USSA of “Russiagate” and alleged hacking of US elections. This comes also at a time when chemical weapons were used in Syria, and hysteria is being ratcheted up, while the lamestream corporate media in the USSA seems to be ignoring the fact that Mr. Putin talked Mr. Assad to relinquish his chemical weapons, and that headed off the war-in-Syria hysteria that was being hyped during the Obama Administration. In short, there’s been no real evidence presented thus far about who used those chemical weapons.

And now, red mercury resurfaces, in the context of a drill, and in the wider context of the anti-Russia hysteria in the West.

But for the rest of the story and my high octane speculation, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

See you on the flip side…
