    Bullshit, I happen to know that “they” have developed a Norheimal Encephaloscope, that can detect a rogue Norwegian in seconds, with just a simple click on a mouse. Some pimple faced kid in Nevada has you on the monitor, and the drone will be over you before you finish reading this.

    “there is not enough actual energy being outputted by ionospheric heaters to directly power an earthquake, but they don’t need that much power if they merely act as nonlinear imbalancers, triggers, or redirectors of existing large natural energy flows.”
    A crock of shit, that any self respecting scientist would LAUGH at. You can’t be serious.

    Ok, Doctor Know, I admit it:
    It was me and my friends in Tromsø (with a little help from the Mongolian
    government) who created the earthquake. Sure, it was strategically and
    intentionally created, but you must believe me when I say that we didn’t
    anticipate the effect. Nor did the Mongolians. You may follow the money, but
    you won’t find us; we’ve escaped to a remote, undisclosed location. We feel
    very bad about what happened. I promise you that we’ll never ever do it again!
    We’re just a small underground group with modest demands, and we regret that
    our operations went out of control…

    “But to argue that we have the technology to move tectonic plates”
    read again — “there is not enough actual energy being outputted by ionospheric heaters to directly power an earthquake, but they don’t need that much power if they merely act as nonlinear imbalancers, triggers, or redirectors of existing large natural energy flows.”
    how is using haarp military experiments as a trigger or imbalancer to move plates much different than your 9/11 flase flag terrorists?
    and btw who the fuck owned all the short sale stock for airlines on 9/11? don’t know? darn it, i’ve read your past 9/11 crap while sitting on the john and can’t recall. haven’t you demanded an answer? the recorded answer by law is available at both wall street and 1600 pennsylvania. still can’t get answers? maybe the big boys are just too big for you and your 9/11 rants.
    also check the list for the many haarp stations operated elsewhere around the world.
    haiti is an unestimatable tragedy on many levels. which enemies and traitors like this nation spending all the time and money?
    “strategic aim”? follow the money, my friend, and see who gets the biggest contracts to rebuild haiti. who the hell got giant money for the iraq rebuild? and better fucking believe the federal reserve made a killing financing the iraq war. chances are any haitian rebuilding contracts won’t go to american indian casino owners.

    False flag terrorist attacks are a recorded and historical political tool. The premise that we have not been given the truth about what occurred on 9/11 is internationally mainstream, (and becoming more so), politically and scientifically, no matter how much our leadership tries to convince us that only a lunatic fringe isn’t buying the official narrative.
    And I do believe in weather mainpulation, to a degree.
    But to argue that we have the technology to move tectonic plates is just plain foolish. If you believe the official story behind 9/11, while also believing that some sinister cabal of military high wickiups can actually move tectonic plates, then you are beyond certifiable.
    And you never answered. What is the “strategic” aim of such an endeavor? What is to be gained by laying ruin to Port Au Prince and the Haitian people?

    “To what end? What “strategy”???? Methinks that sometimes a disaster is simply a disaster. . .”
    and all from a guy who thinks 9/11 was a giant conspiracy.
    so if you think that way, how come weather and plate manipulation isn’t a possible hidden WAR?

    HAARP, Earthquakes, and Hurricanes
    montalk.net » 14 July 08
    Can HAARP manipulate storms, hurricanes, and earthquakes? There is definitely a correlation between these and when HAARP is active. This article will give some examples of that correlation. And while that alone does not prove a direct causal relationship, the physics of HAARP and the political agenda behind the program suggest that weather and earthquake manipulation is both possible and likely.
    Background
    I assume everyone reading this knows of HAARP. Less known is that HAARP is only one of several such facilities — and not the most powerful one either. There are others, here are five:
    1) Mu Radar – 1 megawatt facility in Japan (34°51’14.80″N 136° 6’19.45″E).
    2) Arecibo Observatory – 2 megawatt facility in Puerto Rico (18°20’38.97″N 66°45’9.77″W).
    3) HIPAS – 70 megawatt facility east of Fairbanks, Alaska (64°52’21.18″N 146°50’18.78″W).
    4) Sura – 190 megawatt facility in central Russia (56° 7’10.32″N 46° 2’4.41″E).
    5) EISCAT – 1 gigawatt facility in Tromsø, Northern Norway (69°35’1.06″N 19°12’57.11″E).
    (you can copy and paste the coordinates into google maps)
    By comparison, HAARP (near Gakona, Alaska – 62°23’33.73″N 145° 9’2.61″W) is claimed to be a mere 3.6 megawatt facility — and that’s after being upgraded in 2006. It has 278 times less maximum power than the ionospheric heater in Norway.
    Nevertheless, HAARP is far from useless. According to the DARPA:
    Key to the current effort was the expansion of the experimental research facility that includes a 3.6 MW high-frequency transmitter and a variety of diagnostic instruments, to conduct investigations to characterize the physical processes that can be initiated and controlled in the ionosphere and space, via interactions with high power radio waves. Among these were: (1) the generation of extremely low frequency/very low frequency radio waves for submarine and other subsurface communication, and the reduction of charged particle populations in the radiation belts to ensure safe spacecraft systems operations; (2) the control of electron density gradients and the refractive properties in selected regions of the ionosphere to create radio wave propagation channels; and (3) the generation of optical and infrared emissions in space to calibrate space sensors.
    A study completed by an Air Force/Navy Panel also pointed to additional high-value functions that can potentially be accomplished with the a 3.6 MW capability, in particular, the exploration and refinement of scientific principles that could lead to the development and deployment of a system to provide protection for spacebased assets from emergent asymmetric threats. (source)
    HAARP alone has many applications, primarily military, and those listed above are just a small “safe to reveal” set of examples. If 3.6 MW can accomplish these, imagine what 1000 MW might do!
    There is an interesting anecdotal account by Dan Eden of HAARP being used for surreptitious purposes. Furthermore, he claimed that there was a second, secret, more powerful installation in Alaska. Now in 2008, a decade later, the existence of that facility is no longer secret and its name is HIPAS, which is indeed almost twenty times as powerful as HAARP.
    Physics of HAARP
    What makes these ionospheric heaters so useful is that they consist of phased arrays. A phased array is a grid of antennas whose phases (timing) and amplitudes are individually adjustable. This means a great variety of different combinations can be tried out, synthesizing new and complex total wave forms. Phasing allows the output to be pointed in different directions without having to move the antennas themselves.
    For anyone familiar with the works of Tom Bearden, phased arrays also allow for partial phase conjugation or canceling of the emitted electromagnetic waves. When EM waves have either (or both) of their electric and magnetic components cancelled, the contained energy takes the form of a longitudinal / potential / scalar / gravitational / temporal wave instead.
    Ionospheric heaters can also “control electron density gradients and the refractive properties in selected regions of the ionosphere” meaning it can modulate ionospheric electron density. That is another powerful method of generating longitudinal waves, using the sky itself as a giant longitudinal antenna.
    And so phased arrays can be used to generate an entirely different type of radiation, one that cannot be detected with standard EM-measuring instruments. Depending on their frequency and type, these waves can theoretically affect human emotion and biology, influence the weather, alter tectonic dynamics, and even manipulate our surrounding hyper-dimensional environment to allow for controlled invisibility and interdimensional maneuvering of military personnel and vehicles. In essence, everything that regular electromagnetic waves cannot really do.
    This much I find plausible, that HAARP-like technologies are active on a level superseding those of regular electromagnetism, and that this is what HAARP and its sister facilities are really being used for. It is nothing the public knows about or can comprehend because this technology uses an expanded kind of physics of which only a small and sterilized subset comprises mainstream college textbooks. But it can be figured out if you have a physics background and study the implications and applications of force-free potential fields.
    HAARP ceased activity at 22 UTC on May 11, 2008. The China earthquake struck a little more than eight hours later at 6:28 UTC on May 12. In the days and minutes before the quake, there were reports of strange phenomena including bizarre toad behavior and iridescent clouds. Earthquakes are typically “in the works” days or weeks before going off, and animals, sensitive people, and scalar detectors can sense the nonphysical precursors to these quakes.
    One has to wonder, if earthquakes generate and are preceded by scalar waves, could scalar waves likewise trigger earthquakes? If so, the phased array of various ionospheric heaters around the world may be capable of doing this for political and military purposes. The quake was certainly convenient for western military factions:
    Earthquake Destroyed China’s Largest Military Armory, Says Source
    A high-level Chinese military source secretly disclosed last week that the recent earthquake in Sichuan Province caused a chain-reaction of explosions in the Sichuan mountain areas. The explosions destroyed Chinese army’s largest armory, new weapon test bases and part of nuclear facilities including several nuclear warheads. This information is considered China’s top military secret. […]
    After carefully analyzing seismic data, military experts in southeast Asia confirmed a non-geological shock had occurred at the earthquake epicenter. The energy released was equivalent to that of an underground nuclear explosion. (source)
    There is not enough actual energy being outputted by ionospheric heaters to directly power an earthquake, but they don’t need that much power if they merely act as nonlinear imbalancers, triggers, or redirectors of existing large natural energy flows.
    Was the earthquake just a random natural event? Or was it strategically and intentionally created?

    The author of the plagiarized student thesis that Colin Powell
    used as FALSE proof that Iraq had WMD is speaking out. STEVE
    PLS. TAKE NOTE.
    excerpt
    What actually happened was this: the British Government took
    my material, then added pages that argued for military action
    against Iraq and changed key words to suggest that Iraq had
    supported al-Qaeda. This formed part of what became known as
    the “Dodgy Dossier”, published in February 2003.
    It followed a report released in September 2002, detailing Iraq’s
    WMD programme and including the 45-minute figure four
    times. The BBC’s assertion that Mr Campbell had inserted the
    45-minute figure to “sex up” the document led to it being
    known as the “Sexed-up Dossier”.
    Sir John Scarlett, the intelligence chief, told the Chilcot inquiry
    that some of the facts he presented to the Government were
    “lost in translation”. I would say that what got lost in translation
    is that governments have been spinning wars since the US
    Government set up the Creel Commission in the First World War.

    Yes, there’s no question that Rush Limbaugh and Pat Robertson say some pretty vile things, but it’s very interesting to think about the different approaches that the United States and Europe take to freedom of speech.
    Starting next week, right wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders will go on trial in a Netherlands court room for defaming Islam. He’s been charged with making the following statements:
    1) “The Koran is like Mein Kampf.”
    2) “I have had enough of Islam in the Netherlands, let not one more Muslim immigrate”
    3) “I have had enough of the Koran in the Netherlands: forbid that fascist book.”
    Wilders is also charged with making the movie “Fitna” which juxtaposed the Koran and terrorist attacks including the September 11, 2001, attacks and the London Tube and bus bombings on July 7, 2005. The movie is available on “You Tube.”
    Just today, Dutch prosecutors added the charge of “incitement to hatred and discrimination against non-Western immigrants and/or Moroccans” to the indictment. The evidence to support the charge is this statement made by Wilders during his run for the Dutch Parliament, “If I am elected the borders will be closed the same day for all non-Western immigrants.”
    If that statement was actionable in the United States and had been made about Mexicans, half of the United States Senate and three quarters of the House of Representatives would be in the dock.
    If Wilders is convicted of the charges, he faces two years in prison.
    I don’t like Limbaugh or Robertson, but I am glad that they can say whatever they want without worrying about being charged with a crime.
    As for the Dutch and the rest of Europe; this is just one more example of how unhinged and pathetic they have become.

    Questions, Pat Robertson is one of several Virginan hate mongers cum prophets. He is Yale educated, and spews his hate filled venom with a laser beam smile and a patina that folks around here, and elsewhere, just lap up. Or, more specifically, he is one sick puppy. Welcome to the gentle world of the right wingnuts.

    Pat Robertson isn’t really doing much different than the far right is. In trying to present the Haitians as reaping the “rewards” of their sins he is painting a picture that many far right politicians would have you view Muslims.
    Robertson is a senile old fart. What’s Liz Cheney’s excuse?

    Relief/rebuilding efforts have to include building standards, good materials, no corruption or incentive to cheat on the mixing of cement, inspections, an economy that can produce all of this, social relations that ensure cooperation rather than defection in nearly every single interaction, a lot of time to mourn, replanting, care for the poor, some version of a gently leftist government tolerated by the US instead of replaced by more corruption thanks to the US. (The mysteries of Aristide’s rule are not clarified by a quick skim of Wiki, sadly.)
    And how does any of this happen? How does political development get going? What incentives have to be in place so that the multiple prisoners’ dilemmas of daily life lead to positive social outcomes instead of private good and therefore lousy social outcomes?
    Soft power is one of those things I both like and worry about simultaneously. “Soft” is good. Sharing and caring and helping others become what they themselves want sounds really nice. “Power,” though is a little more worrisome. That’s the part that makes others become what you want them to be for you, not for themselves. Maybe it’s Sartre who makes distinctions between “in itself” or is it “for itself?” and “for another” — if I have this right, “for another” is what we need to avoid, and “in itself” is what we should be supporting. I think this means something like “Haiti for Hatians” and not “Haiti for cheap labor” or “Haiti for making sure that there are no left-leaning governments in our half of the world.”
    We really need to think about whether or not political development requires a moment of left-leaning cooperation. Not Stalinism, maybe not even Chavezmo, but something the US might not love but that would be more responsive to the population in rural, poor countries that need something very different from a well-fed bankster class.
    For now, though, blankets, blood supply, biscuits, beds, and tears.
    And could Pat Robertson just finally shut up?
