Christopher Columbus and the EclipseIn 1504, Christopher Columbus used his knowledge of an upcoming lunar eclipse to redeem his crew from the Jamaicans. He remembered the lunar eclipse he had run across in his ship's Almanac and scheduled a meeting with the island's officials. Columbus said that God's anger would cause a blood moon on a certain day. And sure enough, the eclipse appeared at the precise hour, scaring the natives into supplying the crew and sending them on their way. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_1504_lunar_eclipse. Mark Twain drew upon this historical event in his fictional work, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
No New TricksThe New World Order boys have adopted the same tactic and are using known astronomical data to scare the inhabitants of the world into surrendering their freedom to global government.
Ever since the Mini-Ice-Age (1600-1700) the planet has been getting hotter due to the increase in solar activity. But the long solar cycle peaked in the late 1950s. (see sunspot graph below) As a result the earth has begun to cool down. The globalists have used the warming period to convince the people of the planet that people can change the temperature of the planet; and as a result, the people must be controlled in order to keep the temperature under control.
Our Sun: the Earth's Solar HeaterThe sun's major and minor cycles are also predictable, enabling would-be world rulers to use this knowledge to their advantage.
"Indeed, the sun could be on the threshold of a mini-Maunder event right now. Ongoing Solar Cycle 24 is the weakest in more than 50 years. Moreover, there is (controversial) evidence of a long-term weakening trend in the magnetic field strength of sunspots. Matt Penn and William Livingston of the National Solar Observatory predict that by the time Solar Cycle 25 arrives, magnetic fields on the sun will be so weak that few if any sunspots will be formed." - NASA article Solar Variability and Terrestrial Climate
Napoleon's troops froze to death trying to conquer Russia in the early 1800s (see sunspot graph) during a short recession in sunspot activity.
The Jig's UpUp until now, the globalists have insisted world government is necessary to save the planet from global warming. Lately, as the earth has begun to cool down, they have had to increase the volume of the global warming message. People will only believe the media until they have to pay their heating bills. So the global government grabbers are quickly running out of time.
If they are unable to make drastic changes to world industry before it is obvious to everyone that the world is cooling off without them, they will be exposed as frauds.
But I believe the globalists have already made plans to deal with the rapid cooling. In 2011 news media began to prep the public by telegraphing the potential cooling effect of a nuclear bomb. (see National Geographic article http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/02/110223-nuclear-war-winter-global-warming-environment-science-climate-change/)
And now in 2014 the news is reporting, "Even a relatively small regional nuclear war could trigger global cooling, damage the ozone layer and cause droughts for more than a decade, researchers say." - see article http://www.livescience.com/44380-small-nuclear-war-could-trigger-catastrophic-cooling.html (but wait a minute - I thought damage to the ozone layer caused global warming?:)
WANTED: Bad guy for part in Major Commotion PictureSo to save the credibility of the globalists (UN, EPA, fill in the name of your favorite secret society here) - SOMEONE has to step up and set off a nuke or two . . . before it gets too cold. It seems that many nuclear nations have been provoked lately, but nobody has been willing to be the world villain.
SO . . . a rogue enemy might need to be created, so that either the good guys have a bad guy to nuke; or else, the bad guy gets his hands on a nuke. In the latter case - they may even 'accidentally' nuke themselves. The important thing is that somebody sets off a nuke or two - so that the Warmers have something to blame global cooling on - on something besides the actual cause - solar science.
Bonus - Ding, Ding, DingTHEN the globalists will take up the campaign for global disarmament. That is - gun control on the international level. Which, once again, calls for an international agency. PERFECT
With all this in mind, review this blog posted by the Atlantic Council just a little over a year ago - just before ISIS popped up.
"Without an extraordinary crisis, . . .little is likely to be done to reverse or limit the damage imposed by failed or failing governance. The United States is Exhibit A although there are far too many competitors for that title." - New Atlanticist blog of August 15, 2013 - War on Terror is not the Only Threat
Of necessity, I have posted the entire article below with my own notations. Please take the time to read it. Uber-important!
War on Terror Is not the Only Threat
By Harlan Ullman (my remarks in blue)
[Unspecific warnings last week about an al-Qaida terrorist plot were taken very seriously.
With the anniversary of September 11th looming and the tragic killing of U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, last year still open political wounds in Washington, it was unsurprising that the United States, Britain, and France ordered the closing of a score embassies and posts throughout North Africa and the Middle East and issued travel warnings for the region. In the United States initially, there was general bipartisan support for the closings.
Critics of the Obama administration were quick to point out that the war on terror was far from over and pronouncing the "decimation" of al-Qaida premature. As the word "decimation" was wrongly used yet again -- it means a 10 percent degradation -- so too has been the collective failure by the West to recognize the tectonic changes that are reshaping the international geostrategic system far beyond the reach of al-Qaida and other terrorist groups.
Hence, the counter-terrorism responses have been technical and tactical rather than strategic and aren't addressing the forces that are dramatically altering the nature of international politics.
In simple terms, al-Qaida is symptomatic of far greater changes in the structure of the international system. The major enemy and adversary are no longer states bent on disrupting or dominating the system despite those who see China as a future foe.
(Now watch Ullman shift from this criticism on terrorism to the completely unrelated topic of individual empowerment.)
Instead, the more immediate danger rests in the dramatic empowerment of individuals and groups, for good and sadly evil, often lumped together as "non-state actors."
Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, countless "hackers" and anonymous people mailing anthrax-filled letters whose actions have indeed constituted real threats and systemic disruptions are among the former. Al-Qaida and other radical groups reflect the latter.
In essence, the 365 year-old Westphalian system that placed sovereign states as the centerpieces of international politics is being tested and in some cases made obsolete by the empowerment of individuals and non-state actors. As former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft observes, global politics has entered a post-Westphalian era. But very few have taken note and fewer have acted on this realization.
(The Westphalian Peace Treaty of 1648 accomplished two primary functions; the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in favor of the self-government of independent European states, and the right of each nation-state to select and support its own religious preferences.
Ullman notes the empowerment of non-state actors (individuals) as a new power base rising up and displacing the control of traditional sovereign state governments. And then he suggests that few have taken action to deal with rogues who are using the freedom of the internet to share their knowledge internationally.
He seems to be suggesting that hackers and "Anonymous" are a real threat to nation-state governments.
Whereas, in fact, it is the implementation of a one world government which actually threatens the Westphalian system by stripping the power from nation-states and appropriating their power to a greater Empire; in effect replacing the Holy Roman Empire with an even greater and more controlling empire - a One World Empire.)
The fundamental cause of this empowerment is the diffusion of all forms of power writ large commonly called "globalization," accelerated by the information revolution and instantaneous global communications and the real and perceived fragilities and weaknesses of states to intervention, interference and disruption by non-traditional actors.
(At first Ullman appears to come against globalization. But in just a few paragraphs he will reveal that he is himself a champian of global government.
Ullman indicates that the failure of individual nations to thwart the empowerment of individual citizens would merit intervention by global government.)
September 11th could become the demarcation point of this new era much as 1648 and the Treaty of Westphalia marked the beginning of the state-centric system of the international order.
(Here Ullman links 911 to the onset of the demise of the 'state-centric' system. Ladies and Gentlemen, the thrust of his article is a 'call to arms' for some organization to finish the job by means of some extraordinary crisis - which Ullman trusts will be used to incriminate both personal and state individualism once and for all - under the heavy hand of a new international order - namely, the One World Government. Might we really be only one crisis away from such a living nightmare?)
While the analogy is loose, it won't take centuries for the effects of globalization and the end or at least the transition of the Westphalian era to take hold.
(It is obvious from Ullman's intonation that he is not dreading this transition (as if he had not just previously inferred blame upon independent agents like Snowden), but in fact Ullman would hasten the day when national governments are dissolved - or perhaps, destroyed.)
Beyond this inflection point in international politics, still unabsorbed and misunderstood by most governments and people, a second reality complicates taking effective action in what could truly be a "new world order," the description coined by U.S. President George H.W. Bush after the implosion of the Soviet Union more than two decades ago.
Failed and failing government from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe with Brussels and Washington in between is the largest collective impediment to the betterment of mankind.
(Oh, by the way; some of the weaker governments are going to be crushed under the weight of the crisis, whatever it may be; and regretfully, they will not survive long enough to have a seat at the table of the new international government. Let's see - if Brussels and Washington, bases of national government, and bold individuals alike, are included in the list of Ullman's under-performers; then there's nothing left to do but over-ride the whole system by some extraordinary diversion that would require a new knight in shining armor - of course - the New World Order to the rescue.)
Without an extraordinary crisis, little is likely to be done to reverse or limit the damage imposed by failed or failing governance. The United States is Exhibit A although there are far too many competitors for that title.
(Oh; and it looks like the United States is the most likely candidate for extinction as a result of the crisis. . . . whatever could it be? Doesn't it sound a lot like Ullman has just declared war on the U.S.?)
However, the changing Westphalian system can and must be addressed if there is to be any chance of success in containing, reducing and eliminating the dangers posed by newly empowered non-state actors.
(But you see - this article is not really aimed at the non-state; but directly at the state itself. It is the failing states that are getting in the way of the New World Order. Not some rogues out there on the internet.)
We have been here before. Sixty-eight years ago this month, the nuclear age dawned over Hiroshima. Over time as nuclear and especially thermonuclear weapons were seen as more than just extensions of conventional munitions and potentially existential, a theory of deterrence emerged. We are at similar juncture regarding cyber where we lack an overarching understanding of the implications and possible consequences of this domain.
(Enter nukes into the conversation. But Ullman is not comparing internet viruses, or internet spying to nukes! He's equating individual freedom of speech and individual nationalism with nukes!!! Folks, do you see what the globalists are afraid of ? . . . what can destroy their cause. They can't handle operating in the open; in the light - because they are the enemies of freedom.)
The first step as the Westphalian system faces profound redefinition is understanding and recognizing that these shifts are under way. From that appreciation, specific concepts and ideas can be fashioned to help guide us on this journey.
(Now here's where this gets really interesting. Remember that second purpose for Westphalia? Each state gets to choose its own religion. Oops - that's not P.C. I thought church and state were separate. Well actually, the only solution will be a one-world religion. That will be part of the "profound redefinition".)
The path will be difficult and tortuous. Politics and ideological preferences will confuse and distort clear vision. The tendency to overreact, as occurred after September 11th and the Snowden and Manning leaks, will collide with budget realities in which a great deal less will be spent on national security. And because of the pernicious nature of the U.S. system of government, finding institutions with the objectivity, courage and perseverance to chart this new unknown won't be easy.
(Wow! "A great deal less will be spent of national security." Let's see. Would that help governments fight rogue agents? Of course not! But it will make "failing" nations like the U.S. more vulverable to attacks - attacks from the secret agents of the new global regime.
Yet this must be done.]
(Ullman ends with this ultimatum; "Yet this must be done." Despite all difficulties and confusion, some able organization must rise up and create an extraordinary crisis so that the nation-state system might be toppled and replaced by the One World Order.)
So who's the more dangerous 'non-state' player here? Ullman or Snowden?
Watch out for flying nukes this winter. Location? - Unknown, or perhaps TBA.
Keep your eyes peeled and your lead parka handy.
