…And Guess Who Else Wants To Go To Mars?

To say that news lately has been a very strange mix of events would be putting it mildly, and in that vein we’ve seen the strange Antarctica stories, the Turkish invasion of Syria, heated phone calls between Mr. Putin and Mr. Erdogan, and the strange UFO flap over Turkey as the latter were going on.

There’s another story that emerged during this period, of a more mundane but not necessarily purely terrestrial nature.   Regular readers here are well aware of the stories – first a drip and now a steady trickle – about the privatization and commercialization of space, as there has been a steady flow of stories about asteroid mining and how to do it; about permanent, and large, manned space stations not just in low Earth orbit, but in far Earth orbit at the equigravisphere between the Earth and the Moon; about manned human missions to the Moon and Mars and about the permanent human colonization of the same(see, for example, this recent offering from Popular Science: How The First Private Landing On The Moon Could Move Humanity Forward A conversation with the founder of Moon Expressshared by Mr. R.M.); there have even been stories about the planning being done for government structures for those projects; there have been stories about the major powers beefing up their space war waging capabilities. All of these various stories we have covered  and blogged about here.

But guess who else – what other company wants to go to Mars?

Surprise, surprise, it’s Lockheed-Martin, according to this story shared once again by Mr. R.M.:

Lockheed Martin Wants To Send Humans To Mars In 12 Years Orbiting laboratory could pave the way for a landing party

Now, the interesting thing here is the “using existing publicly-known technologies” angle of the story, it’s possible to place six astronauts – still just a life-boat by all measures, but a veritable ocean liner compared to the two and three man capsules we were dealing with in the 1960s and 1970s – in orbit around Mars to conduct close-up manned orbital exploration of the Red Planet, and to coordinate from close range remote robotic surface explorations, without those pesky twenty or so minutes communications delays from Mars to Earth and back again:

You won’t find any suspended animation pods or magnetic shields on Lockheed’s spacecraft. As cool as those might be, Mars Base Camp relies on near-term technologies–equipment that’s already been proven or is in development now.

“All of these pieces exist today, they’re not brand new,” says Antonelli. “We’re taking advantage of what we’ve already got.”

Orion provides the brain of the vessel, providing navigation and communications. There’s also a backup Orion vehicle to ensure a getaway plan if the crew runs into trouble.

The two Orion capsules would link up with larger habitat and laboratory modules, which Lockheed is already in the process of developing, as well as solar panels to provide power.

The rationale here is self-evident:

Without the delay, and with real-time feedback, scientists can stop to look at features that they might have missed otherwise. Plus, the use of flying robots would allow NASA to explore Mars in a whole new way.

Needless to say, I’m more than somewhat skeptical of this story. It was Richard C. Hoagland and his co-author Mike Bara who, in their best-selling book Dark Mission, pointed out that NASA was chartered under the U.S. Department of Defense. In other words, in spite of its billing as a civilian agency, NASA was firmly placed within the orbit – to coin a pun – of the military-industrial complex of the USA. One can appreciate the reasons: at that time there was concern, enunciated in the Brookings Report on space matters, that we might encounter someone, or their (technological) artifacts out there, and hence, that the whole issue of space faring involved national security in a major way.

The point to draw from this is the close association of NASA with the Defense Department and therewith with the whole military-industrial-finance-intelligence complex. The same pattern we may be assured, holds true in all other nations with major space programs: Europe, Japan, Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

Segue from this association to the hearings during the G.W. Bush administration, where Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and his assistants were being grilled by Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney(D- GA.) not only on the Pentagon’s budget procedures, but on the fact that the Pentagon’s data processing contracts were almost exclusively in the hands of corporations like Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, and so on. In other words, the government was not processing its data, defense contractors were.

Move this pattern that Congresswoman McKinney attempted to penetrate into space, and we see the problem: what control over any collected data will the government have when the major systems for the manned exploration of Mars are largely in the hands of private corporation, especially so if the database management itself is in their hands? If the record of NASA Mars missions(or for that matter, even Moon missions) is recalled, there have been numerous controversies over the years of debates over NASA photos of those planets’ surfaces, and controversies over whether or not NASA released undoctored pictures or attempted to embargo them altogether. Many of the same defense companies were involved in…

Secret Space Program Conference [2015] – Catherine Austin Fitts – The Space Based Economy HD

TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
July 7, 2016

Being one of the headliners of the SSP Conference, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts [Solari.com], went next to last on the final day of the conference.

Being the monetary guru of the conference, her presentation is thus named “The Space-Based Economy.”

Fitts’ presentation begins with a rough outline of what the presentation will cover:

– Looking for the Money
– Mapping the Economics
– Building out The Low-Earth Orbit Infrastructure
– Unanswered Questions: Closed vs. Open Economy
– Practical Implications To You

From the outset Fitts’ commences by explaining how she got entangled into this abstruse subject.  At the nascent point of her quest, she began simply by looking for $4 Trillion dollars that went missing from the US Government.

She proceeds to take a cursory glance at the amount of money spent in space by the most powerful economies.   Thereafter, she hones in on a more disturbing machination, which regards how much money the military has ‘lost track of’.  This outrageous incident, which isn’t the only one, adds up to the tune of $2.3 Trillion dollars.

There in Fitts’ tackles this monumental issue by delineating the fact that a whopping $40 Trillion dollars is what she estimates the black-budget brigade has siphoned from private households as well as the US Govt. and other places.  The obvious question she poses:  “Where did it go?”

She alludes that that enormous amount of money would be sufficient to run a global government behind the scenes, it could have gone into space, or a few other places such as the black budget and such.

With a bit of humor, she picks on Lockheed Martin with a few of caricature jokes  for obvious reasons, given their stature as contractor and highly probable tentacles within off-world ventures.

Fitts’ proceeds to show a chart which shows a comparison between the NASDAQ, the SP500, & Lockheed Martin’s stock, as well as pointing out a few notable points regarding these three charts.

After that she speaks of a waver that the National Security Advisor can give that will allow him to delegate to companies the ability to wave the compliance of SSC Transparency Rules.  This is quite intense, because with that any company can undertake black budget projects and many other dealings.

Fitts’ splits up the economy into two regions, the Low-Earth Orbit, which manages the flows related to resources primarily on Earth.  This is where 90% of the economic action is.  The other area is space exploration, and she says its profoundly different economics between L.E.O. and space exploration.

One interesting aspect is her take on exploration.  She mentions how exploration has always usually been a risky venture historically, and can be quite detrimental to a society.  This would only be more exacerbated in space.  Due to that she proceeds to touch lightly upon the fact that the establishment needs to figure out how to handle the political/economic risks of these ventures.

As an example, she talks about how Scottland undertook ‘The Darien Project’, which wound up being a bust, and wiped out 20-25% of the capital of the country.  This is a small, but incisive reminder into the risks of explorations that a country needs to heed.

Knowing the incoming Space Race that is coming, the establishment is pushing heavily into reigniting the interest of space.  Because of this, space ports are popping up everywhere.  Fitts covers a few aspect of this new corporate space race.

Subsequent to that Fitts covers the crucial need to minimizing cost of delivering payloads into space.  In the past, control of the sea lanes was linked to the economy, but now, coupled with that the satellite lines are the ones that are in need of policing.  Due to that, there is an incoming traffic jam in space of countries that are realizing the need of putting satellites into orbit and the advantages that can have due to the Snowden revelations.

The competitive aspect of manufacturing is then addressed quite well by Fitts.  She talks about “..building a domestic manufacturing infrastructure not just here but in other countries around the world where they can break through, break free, a huge amount of industrial capacity so they can support the cost of going not space.”  Japan’s tech giants are mentioned as one of the ones carrying this out.

One of the most notable points follows:  “The goal of what is going on in that space is…about the control and concentrations of flows on planet Earth including cashflow.”  This is because the control and concentration of cashflow are arguably the two largest factors to focus upon regarding the space-based economy.

The amount of total satellite launched in space is covered thereafter, with Russia, China, and USA focused on.  Satellite Industry Revenues is also mentioned.  The focus should be on the digital information going through the satellite.

A thorough Chronology of the Building Out Of GPS is there in shown.  Coupled with that she seeps into the supporting digital systems and the “smart grids” that support the satellites.  The main point behind all those tools is “Who can get the data from here to there the fastest”.   This is the foundation for space-based operations in the Low-Orbit sector.   One highly notable bullet point was the one covering Weaponry, which included: Surveillance, Intelligence, Coordination And Unmanned Forces [Drones, Robots]; Entrainment and Electronic Harassment; Offensive and Defensive Weaponry.   This is in order to be able to use force with unmanned capabilities from a distance, if the need to go to a defensive posture arises.   Soft weapons are also mentioned as a cause for concern given their increasing use.  If am not mistaken, Fitts’ had an interview with Charles Hugh Smith covering some aspects of Soft-Weaponry on her Solari Website.  All this centers upon mind control of the individual.

Another profound quote by Fitts is shared in regards to power, and money:

“If you look at the competition for resources globally, the shift of investment eastward means that the military must enforce.  Nobody puts money where they can’t enforce.  That means, as the money moves globally, so must the military.  It’s simply the nature of the investment model.”
– The Solari Report

This is all leading to a rebalancing of power that is currently taking place globally.

Sinking her teeth into an abstruse aspect of this global move, Fitts focuses thereafter on the rise of internet uses globally.  As she mentions, in its nascent stages in 1995, less than 1% of the Global Population was on the internet.  However, in 2005, there were 1 Billion internet uses.  This had tripled by 2014, and increased slightly more thereafter.  All of this has come due to the lower cost of smartphones nowadays, which has aided greatly in this user expansion.

“Why is this important?  One of the most important drivers  of economic in space and in the low-earth Orbit is what?  Fiat currency.”  All of this is headed towards a global digital currency of some effect.

The debt-based fiat game is then talked about quite incisively as to how that plays out in the global scheme, and how that interludes into global control and military capacity.

The One-Way Mirror is the addressed by Fitts’.  This regards the surveillance platform that is being implemented that is so intrusive, so  far-reaching, and so breathtaking that is beyond astonishing.  Due to that, she focuses on the importance of knowing about entrainment, subliminal programming, financial manipulation, soft weapons, and aspects of the CIA/NSA/Google [Nafeez Ahmed] and more.

Women are thence focused upon Fitts, and it’s quite fascinating, as the establishment has made an enormous effort to play the woman card.  What is meant by this is that women in every aspect o the world are being promoted.  This is because the global female population has a GNP that’s bigger than China.  Essentially, women control an enormous economic arm of the globe.  This is something that is going to play itself out from here on out.

Fitts continues: “Control is not control of countries and municipalities or government leaders.  Control is control of every one of you and I using racial based technology, artificial intelligence and a lot of these different technologies.”

The global fight for the internet is then addressed by Fitts.

Subsequently, she covers the Peace Of Westphalia.

The Peace Of Westphalia [1648] was the political agreement which was the end of the medieval period, because it came up with a philosophy of sovereignty that gave a monopoly of force on a the sovereign government.  Before that a lot of nation states and mercenaries were able to field power.

Soon thereafter, Fitts moves from there to Unanswered Questions: Is Earth An Open Or A Closed Economy?

– Who Owns The Debt?
– What Is The Gold Inventory?
– Who Is behind The One Way Mirror?
– Who Controls The “Smart Grid?”
– Black Budgets, Dark Pools, Hidden Systems Of Finance: Is There Such A Thing As Markets?
– Digital Currencies: Who Controls?
– What Are The Economic Costs Of Disinformation?

The above questions are delved into by Fitts’ in a poignant manner.  She makes some interesting, and yet, quite provocative statements regarding the above points/questions.

Catherine Austin Fitts finalizes her presentation with all the things the individual can do.  This is my most favorite aspect of her presentation because she is always hammering on the importance of what people can do at the individual, local level of their community.   Not from a fear point of view, not from a doom-and-gloom, but in a way that is realistic, practical and energetic way.

Jon Rappoport also hones in on this quite regularly in his website NoMoreFakeNews.com and on JonRappoport.wordpress.com.

If you wish to learn more about Fitts’ work, you can go to Solari.com, which is her website, or you can goggle Youtube to watch many of her interviews.

Catherine Austin Fitts’ work is highly respected here, and with great reason.  Her approach is always reasonable, methodical, fearless and extremely educational in many ways.

Harvard Scientists Say There May Be An Ancient Earth Inside Our Planet

A group of researchers from Harvard University believes they have found enough evidence to support the idea that there is an ancient Earth existing inside out planet. By ancient, we mean at the time our planet formed, billions of years ago.

The team of researchers believes that a previously unexplained isotopic ratio from deep within the planet might be leftover materials from an ancient Earth prior to colliding with a gigantic celestial body that eventually lead to the creation of Earth’s moon. Harvard scientists believe that this could be the remnants of an ancient Earth that existed 4.5 billion years ago, before the collision mentioned above.

The creation of Earth’s Moon and its origin are among some of the greatest scientific mysteries of science. While we are still unsure as to how the moon formed, there are several scientific theories which attempt to explain the formation of Earth’s ‘natural’ satellite. Among the theories, the most widely accepted one suggests that the Moon formed some 4.5 billion years ago when our planet collided with a celestial object the size of Mars called ‘Theia.’ According to this theory, the heat generated by the cosmic collision melted the planet causing debris to fly off, eventually creating the moon we see today.

However, according to Harvard scientists led by Professor Sujoy Mukhopadhyay, there is enough evidence to suggest only part of the Earth melted and that an ancient part still exists within Earths mantle. In other words, this means that parts of the ancient Earth, before the formation of the moon still exist below our feet, untouched for billions of years.

“The energy released by the impact between the Earth and Theia would have been huge, certainly enough to melt the whole planet. However, we believe that the impact energy was not evenly distributed throughout the ancient Earth. This means that a significant part of the impacted hemisphere would probably have been completely vaporized, but the opposite hemisphere would have been partly shielded, and would not have undergone complete melting.” –Professor Mukhopadhyay.

Strangest Star Light Pattern in Milky Way Galaxy — Are There Megastructures Orbiting KIC 8462852?

Linda Moulton Howe

“We do know that it takes weeks (for light blocker) to pass in front of the star.
… And the dimming is almost random. That suggests that whatever’s blocking the star’s
light has a very complex structure. … And there’s a lot of them.”

Jason Thomas Wright, Ph.D., Penn State Astronomer

October 28, 2015 University Park, Pennsylvania

Last week on October 22nd, senior scientist Gerald Harp at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute in Mountain View, California, reported to Universe Today: “We either caught something shortly after an event like two planets crashing together — or alien intelligence.” He was talking about a very strange star that astronomers call KIC 8462852. This large, mature star 1,480 light-years from Earth has the strangest star light dimming and brightening pattern of some 150,000 stars in the Milky Way Galaxy studied by the Kepler Space Telescope and Planet Hunters project. Kepler was launched by NASA on March 7, 2009, specifically to look for Earth-like planets orbiting other stars.

On September 14, 2015, Professor Tabitha Boyajian, Yale University astronomer, published in the Royal Astronomical Society journal a 14-page paper with graphs of what the Kepler Telescope has observed the past four years. Normally a planet orbiting a distant star will cause the star’s light to dim about 1% as seen from Earth. But KIC has had a series of dimming downs — one as much as 22%. The implication is that something gigantic is periodically coming between KIC and Earth.
