More On That Power Outage

If you’re like me, you probably thought that power outage in New York City, the San Francisco bay area, and Los Angeles, was a little suspicious. As one might imagine, after I blogged about that event, I received a number of emails from people also following the story, some in California, and some in… well, Canada. We’ll get back to that in a moment.

Suffice it to say, that after reading more details about that story, my suspicion meter has slipped from the orange zone into the dark red zone. It’s not quite into the “point of no return zone” but it has definitely crept closer to it. Here’s one reason why, in a story shared by Ms. K.S.:

Hundreds of trucks stuck at Port of Long Beach after power outage

When I read this, the suspicion meter couldn’t help but rise into the lower red zone, for a reason I’m sure you caught, but just in case you didn’t, consider this little admission:

Southern California Edison initially reported it was caused by metallic balloons coming in contact with wires. The utility later corrected that statement, saying there was a different outage in Long Beach that was caused by balloons. The agency is still investigating the cause of the outage at the port. (emphasis added)

Metallic balloons coming into contact with power lines? “Oh, but wait, that was a different power outage. We’re not really sure why the port of Long Beach went down.”

Really?

What kind of “metallic balloons” are we talking about here? Those happy birthday shiny things that are filled with helium that one can buy in a store? If so, then we’re in trouble, folks, if all it takes to tie up a major port and bring down a power grid is someone having a birthday party. And I probably don’t even have to air my high octane speculation here, because you’re probably thinking the same thing already, but I’ll go ahead and do so anyway: suppose someone deliberately wanted to test the vulnerability of the power grid with a simple system: “metallic balloons” with appropriate “stringers” to short several lines all at once. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and would be virtually impossible to prevent, unless the Reichsicherheithauptamt … er… the Department of Homeland Insecurity’s Paranoia Bureau wants to put birthday balloons on the favored weapons of terrorists watch list.

But then Mr. K.H. sent this strange article about about Ontario’s largest supermarket chain experiencing difficulty in debit and credit card clearing, occurring concurrently with the “power outages” which were caused by “metallic balloons”:

Ontario Loblaws grocery stores experience debit or credit card payment outage

Mr. K.H. also indicated that there were difficulties in yest another popular system of clearing and payments operating between Canada and the USA that took much longer to resolve. He raised an important point: there may have been a whole period of time — perhaps a day — of suspicious transactions that had to be “reset”.

In any case, you know me: I cannot resist the temptation to be suspicious of easy – and quite frankly, amusing – explanations like metallic balloons, or explanations in the case of the Ontario credit and debit card clearing difficulty, that amount to no explanation at all.

The question is, are these things all related? Well, my high octane intuition and speculation tells me they may be. I’ve blogged before on this site about the strange way the internet seems to be being reconnoitered by “someone” intent on probing its architecture and weaknesses. We’ve seen the attacks on internet cables in the Bay Area, the Sony hack, Federal Reserve hacks, and so on. Now, it’s metallic balloons and hundreds of trucks stranded in Long Beach. Call me crazy, but I suspect therefore that what we’re looking at is more of the same pattern. The important question, however, seems to be why, what’s the motivation?

And I cannot help but think that there is one thing in this alleged “pattern” that stands out as common elements: digital systems, the power grid, and the complete lack of security of both. It’s almost as if “someone” is trying to send the message, “think again before you move to cashlessness, and have computers running everything.” It’s almost as if someone is trying to draw attention to the vulnerability of the grid.

See you on the flip side..

Japan Enters The Africa Chessboard…

JAPAN ENTERS THE AFRICA CHESSBOARD…

Mr. S.D., a regular reader here, found this very interesting article, and it definitely raises the stakes of the game now being played out in Africa, for it makes clear that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe means for Japan to play a much more geopolitically vigorous role on the world stage:

Japan pledges billions in investments for foothold in Africa

There’s two paragraphs here that caught my eye, the very first one in fact, and then one further down in the article:

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said his country is to invest $30 billion in Africa, with a focus on boosting infrastructure on the resource-rich continent. Tokyo competes with Beijing for influence in the region.

While Abe’s government has been relatively successful in reaching out to African nations, its influence is dwarfed by Japan’s rival China. In 2015, China’s total trade with Africa reached about $179 billion, compared to Japan’s $24 billion.

The nature of Japanese investment is also worth looking at:

The new investments, announced on Saturday, would be divided out over a three-year time period, with some of the money going to improve labor productivity and health care.

What is interesting here is that Japan’s investments in Africa, like China’s, appear to be of a very different nature than America’s, which have been largely to form a new command structure in the region and to beef up military presence. China’s pattern, in response to this, has been to invest in infrastructure: roads, hospitals, building schools, and so on. Of course, none of this is altruistic, for China’s real goal is to build markets for products and trade, and resource-rich Africa is, to be blunt, the last great developing market in the world, with an enormous pool of virtually untapped human creativity and invention. Notably, Mr. Abe’s Japan is pursuing, at a smaller scale, the Chinese pattern, and in the long run, this portends yet another reversal over the long term for American policy: the orient sends hospitals, the USSA sends tanks, rockets, drones, bombs… you get the picture.

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.

If you have time please check out her work.  You will not be disappointed.

IRAQ & CHINA

You may have missed this story from last year as the holidays loomed, and more particularly because the lamestream media of the West was busy with infotainment and the American presidential (s)election non-race, but there was another significant development in the Middle East as Iraq’s leader, Mr. Haidar al-Abadi headed to Beijing for talks with Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, according to this article shared by Mr. B.:

ISIS, Chinese investment in focus as Iraqi PM heads to China

Note carefully the following comments, for this is another story to watch in 2016, namely, China’s increasing role in the Middle East:

Abadi will hold talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi Jinping, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said. Talks between the leaders are expected to focus on the fight against Islamic State as well as bilateral ties between China and Iraq. Abadi has said he will ask for increased Chinese investment to rebuild the country.

Over the past year Iraq has received weapons systems from China, Russia and Iran. China is the top foreign player in Iraq’s oilfields, which are the largest in the Middle East open to foreign investment.

Ahead of his trip to Beijing, Abadi said that his country is working on deepening relations with China, saying “we are seeking to promote such relations in all aspects, in particular in investment and rebuilding infrastructure.”(Emphasis added)

I suggest that what this represents is an almost complete failure of American policy in the region, as Iraq was left essentially devastated by the American and British invasion of the country in the wake of 9/11. You’ll note that Mr. Abadi is asking for Chinese help in rebuilding his country’s infrastructure, and for real assistance in combating ISIS in the wake of America’s failures in this regard, highlighted more recently by Mr. Putin’s decision to intervene in Syria.

The message here could not be plainer, at least from Baghdad’s standpoint: America simply cannot be trusted, period. Indeed, its track record of deceptions vis-a-vis the crucial Middle Eastern country is dismal at best, and began the long descent of Iraq into chaos when the US Ambassador to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, April Glaspie, basically “greenlighted” the invasion of Kuwait that forged the pretext for the first Gulf War during the administration of G.H.W. Bush. Notably, Iraq is now receiving weapons systems from China, Russia, and former enemy, Iran.
