Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 7

The asteroid Vesta
Recently the NASA Dawn Mission succeeded in placing a research satellite into orbit around the asteroid Vesta.

The photo to the left is one of the first photographs to be taken of Vesta, then sent back to mission specialists here on Earth for comprehensive analysis.

Immediately after the first photographs began to arrive from the Dawn spacecraft, mystery manifested once again, because what scientists saw was not exactly what they expected to see.

Notice the strata lines visible on the lower-left side of the photo of the asteroid Vesta, circling around to the middle-top of the photo (right mouse click for a larger view).

As it turns out, the asteroid Vesta is similar to a moon of the planet Mars, Phobos, in that both of them have strata lines.

We discussed the surprising, mysterious strata condition found on Phobos in the original post of this series:
Generally strata are laid down by the effects of erosion, either by liquid, atmospheric winds, volcanism of various sorts, or a combination of any or all of those over a long span of time.

If these lines are that type of strata, then it is likely that a very long time transpired during which the deposits that make up the strata were laid down.

Obviously that does not happen on any asteroid, or similar body, nor would such lines be at an angle opposite the gravitational direction as is the case in the photo.
(Weekend Rebel Science Excursion). You can right mouse click on the photo of Phobos for a larger view, or go to the original post for even larger views.

We know that strata on the surface of a planet (think of The Grand Canyon for example) are laid down there over large spans of time by water and/or wind.

Those strata lines are laid down by the help of the pull of gravity, which causes the strata to be conformed to the shape of the planet's surface.

Because gravity pulls toward the surface of a planet, strata are not laid down vertically (as they show up on Vesta and Phobos) because the force of gravity naturally lays them down horizontally onto the curved surface of the planet.

In the original post we discussed the Exploded Planet Hypothesis (EPH) or theory (EPT) that a planet originally existed in the gap area between Mars and Jupiter:
But is it a chunk of the now missing planet which once filled the great gap between Mars and Jupiter, where now there are only asteroids remaining in the junk yard of rock and debris we call the asteroid belt?

A now missing planet which exploded and left the chunk in the photo to be caught by the gravity of Mars, and to then become a moon of Mars?

The EPH or EPT is an old idea which has been subscribed to by some good astronomers, who were of course criticized by their fellow astronomers because they did not follow the crowd to accept the theory pronounced "okay" by the government.
(ibid). These non-horizontal strata lines shown in the photos above indicate that Vesta and Phobos could be chunks of a large planet that once existed in what is now called "the asteroid belt" between Mars and Jupiter.

The photo to the right is of a stratified island near La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

If the Earth exploded and that island was blown into space, in time it would wear down, dust would smooth it out some, fragmentation would tend to make it more round, and the strata lines on it over time would morph to then look similar to those on Phobos and Vesta in the two photos above.

A graphic to the right shows the island in black and white and rotated as it would do while floating in space.

This gives some indication of how the surface of a planet containing strata would appear after being blown into space as huge chunks.

Some of those chunks would be as large as a thousand miles wide, while others would be as small as an island a few hundred feet across.

That is exactly how the asteroid belt is situated today.

A planet originally located in that asteroid belt gap area would be in accord with the Titius-Bode Law of Planetary Spacing, because, according to that law a planet should be there, but only debris in the form of asteroids is there now.

Hence the Exploded Planet Hypothesis, as explained and argued a bit more here.

In closing, note that the EPH is sometimes criticized merely because establishment scientists don't know how a planet could explode.

Let me say that evidence of an explosion is not necessarily evidence of the type of explosion that produced it, how the subject item exploded, nor does it have to be evidence of the specific explosive device or mechanism.

For instance, a car blown to smithereens has fenders, doors, wheels, engine, and other parts strewn about, but they are not in and of themselves always conclusive proof of anything but an explosion.

That is because the debris of the car could be caused by any one of several types of explosions, or could be caused by any number of types of devices or methods.

The explosion itself could have been a bomb (in the trunk, under the hood) the gas tank exploding, getting hit by a military tank at high speed, a tornado direct hit, or simply caused by driving over a land mine.

Likewise, when we look at the rubble of the car, or the rubble of the asteroids, we can't say there was no explosion simply because we don't know how an explosion happened.

To the same effect, the residue in the form chunks of debris (with strata) we call asteroids is sufficient evidence of the explosion.

So, lets look closer for petrified organic matter, and the like, then perhaps look for evidence as to specifically how the explosion took place , since, (due to the debris) we already know that an explosion took place.

A video of Vesta rotating shows that the strata lines go all the way through the asteroid.

The Virgin MOMCOM - 4

The graphic to the left shows the world wide command structure of MOMCOM (click to enlarge).

That is: USNORTHCOM, USSOUTHCOM, USCENTCOM, USEUCOM, USAFRICOM see also this, and USPACOM (which are all part of the size of government) [NOTE: Since this page was posted by Dredd Blog on 8/4/2011, the military has changed or removed these web pages, the Wayback Machine versions of that time have been inserted (if available) to replace these current pages: USNORTHCOM, USSOUTHCOM, USCENTCOM, USEUCOM, USAFRICOM, and USPACOM].

But what is missing from this grandiose picture of a worldwide military command and control structure?

For one thing, the above list does not include USSPYCOM, which spies on everyone everywhere, including American citizens.

What is also missing from that picture is the story of the participation of MOMCOM in 120 or so nations where daily acts of war are conducted:
Somewhere on this planet an American commando is carrying out a mission. Now, say that 70 times and you’re done ... for the day. Without the knowledge of the American public, a secret force within the U.S. military is undertaking operations in a majority of the world’s countries. This new Pentagon power elite is waging a global war whose size and scope has never been revealed, until now ... One of its key components is the Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC, a clandestine sub-command whose primary mission is tracking and killing suspected terrorists. Reporting to the president and acting under his authority, JSOC maintains a global hit list that includes American citizens. It has been operating an extra-legal “kill/capture” campaign that John Nagl, a past counterinsurgency adviser to four-star general and soon-to-be CIA Director David Petraeus, calls "an almost industrial-scale counterterrorism killing machine."
(Nick Turse, Huffington Post, emphasis added; see also USSOCOM page which is now USSOCOM). If you watched the news about The Libyan War you would have seen the fruits of USSOCOM labor, since their primary operation now is the oil wars.

In their minds they are practicing the art of war, but our founders did not consider jingoism to be an American tradition.

Building Boom

Burj Khalifa - World's Tallest Bldg.
While the Obama Administration frets and obsesses over "home-grown terrorists" and while airport improvement construction projects shut down because congress just went on a 6 week vacation,  more people are becoming unemployed in the USA.

Meanwhile, a building boom is taking place in the middle east "where terrorists come from".

That competition in the middle east will determine who can build the world's tallest building for all the world to see.

Some time back Dredd Blog highlighted several things that the U.S. press does not tend to let the public know.

Especially when more and more is being plundered from the American middle class and poor to support middle east wars for oil:
Who rules the nation that has the largest man made harbor on earth and the busiest U.S. Navy port of call?

Who rules the nation that was given permission to take over a military hardware producing U.S. company?

Who rules the nation that has the tallest building on earth?

Who rules the nation that has the largest airport in the world?

Who rules the nation that received billions of U.S. taxpayer money in the TARP bailout?

Who rules the nation that has the headquarters for Dick Cheney's company Halliburton?

Who rules the nation where AIG did a lot of shady business?

Who rules the nation that would have ruled over U.S. ports if Bush II had his way?

Who rules the nation that has luxurious villas purchased by U.S. taxpayer dollars, gushing from the U.S. Treasury into Afghanistan, then to this ruler's realm?
(Islamic Ruler of Dubai). The answer to those questions, at the moment, is of course "Mohammed".

The answer to the question "who will build the next world's highest building?", however, is Saudi Arabia, who will now overtake Dubai in that department.

Meanwhile back in "the richest nation in the world" the government is taking benefits from the populace, giving tax cuts to the 1% wealthiest "Americans", and misplacing the largest infrastructure bill/money in history.

Phase Six Of The Currency Wars?

This series has focused on the benefit that the USA derives by enjoying the U.S. Dollar as the world's reserve currency.

In the previous post of the series we quoted a past Secretary of The Treasury who stated that "if we didn't have the dollar as the de facto reserve currency of the world, we'd be Greece."

Let's acknowledge that "we'd be Greece" is a phrase composed of strong words, yes, words that conjure up a catastrophic image, including an image of Greece style rioting in the streets of America.

That is especially so ("a catastrophic image") when we consider the acknowledged U.S. military preparations for martial law in case of just such an eventuality:
A new report by the U.S. Army War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks.

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” said the War College report.

The study says economic collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order are among possible domestic shocks that might require military action within the U.S.
(Government of The Government). Is this issue of social discontent over a prolonged economic disaster that serious?

Serious enough to require military intervention of the posse comitatus type within the USA?

The Russians, upon observation of the recent U.S. "debt crisis debate", agree with the majority of Americans who think government financial incompetence is quite serious:
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin accused the United States on Monday of living beyond its means "like a parasite" on the global economy and said dollar dominance was a threat to the financial markets.

"They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy," Putin told a Kremlin youth group while touring its summer camp north of Moscow.

"They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar."


"If over there (in America) there is a systemic malfunction, this will affect everyone," Putin told the young Russians.

"Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities ... There should be other reserve currencies."
(Putin On World Currency, emphasis added). More and more nations of the world think that the U.S. Dollar should not be the world's reserve currency, which means they are willing to see us turn ourselves into Greece.

The series is chronicled more completely on the Series Posts page, under the heading "Currency Wars".

China is expressing the same sentiment that Russia is, now that S&P has downgraded the rating of the USA's credit.

Some relevant video is available on Newsy.

The Peak of Sanity - 4

In the previous post of this series, Dredd Blog displayed a graph, mentioning the suspected time frame period of about 60 years (6 decades) within which the peak of sanity hypothetically occurred (not to be confused with the peak of intelligence, which has not yet occurred).

You can be sure that the mass intimidation which MOMCOM naturally engenders is causing those who ponder this reality facing current civilization to fear to call insanity what it is actually is.

You can be sure that writers will, instead, be using the techniques of Bernays to water it down into a form of pabulum.

Yes, choosing to make "it" palatable to those under the hypnotic gaze of MOMCOM, writers will use words such as "sleepwalking":
Like climate change, peak oil is often perceived by the more pessimistic analysts as one of those apocalyptic conundrums where we are already past the tipping point – meaning that any solutions human ingenuity can deliver will simply mitigate the worst-case scenario. Certainly, oil-field discoveries have been in sharp decline since the 1970s. And there is a consensus that peak oil has already been reached, at some point between 2004 and 2008. This does not bode well at a time when huge emerging nations like China and India are experiencing energy-hungry industrial revolutions. China's economic growth was 11 per cent last year and in India, it reached 9 per cent. Increased demand could soon outstrip depleted supplies.

But unlike climate change, politicians seem unwilling to encourage public debate about the ramifications of peak oil. There has been no shortage of government-commissioned reports into the problem, but most have been kept from public view – Britain and the US, for example, have maintained the cloak of secrecy by not publishing many findings. This could be because politicians are concerned that doom-laden messages - like the prediction that ordinary families will only be able to use their cars for emergencies within 10 years because of spiralling fuel prices – will cause panic and civil disobedience on the streets. Or, a more cynical view, might suggest that governments and oil companies are so deeply entwined – in some cases like Saudi Arabia and Iran they are, indeed, the very same thing and we all know about the intimate connections between BP and the political world here in the UK – that educating citizens on the need to move towards conservation and away from consumption would damage business and tax revenues and possibly, even, the foundations of capitalism itself.
(Are We Sleepwalking Into Disaster?, emphasis added). Of course the professionals within the field of forensics do not call it "sleep walking" when a person commits suicide, so by the same token ecocide should not be called an accident done while civilization was "sleep walking".

But, it does not take a genius to figure out why MOMCOM would allow climate change reality to enter into a public "debate", but to the contrary would not allow peak oil reality to enter into a public debate.

It is because climate change origin is an obscure concept to the everyday citizen, thus the MOMCOM mass media can generate doubt ("climate change is the greatest hoax").

But the concept of no gasoline in the gas tank of the car is not an obscure concept, so it would be certain to create panic mixed with mob psychology anger in the populace.

The current "debt ceiling" discourse is nothing more than a probing of the American public to see how they will react to serious pocket book dangers.

It is an early exercise or experiment to help MOMCOM develop more detailed tactics in the strategy of triage.

The epitome of public policy is evolving into "controlled demise", the only thing their propaganda damaged cognitive faculties can come up with now, since denial has ravaged the cognitive governing abilities they once had.

The way the powers that be react to the realization of what they have brought upon the whole of humanity, the Earth, and to their own existence, emphasizes the power of the Amygdala to generate the realm of denial.

The power of the Amygdala, teamed up with the reptilian brain, is a power well beyond the more limited power of our conscious mind to produce a superseding cognition that would be able to rationally engage these dangers the entire human species now faces, because the fear of death is overpowering.

Those high level MOMCOM entities, who are now very well aware of the dangers, are in shock, in brain-lock, yes, in a trance that has been brought on by the power of denial within "the collective lizard brain" and the collective Amygdala, yes, the social Id theory that Freud advanced.

This Is Your Brain On Propaganda - 3

Some time back Dredd Blog posted Origin of The "Liberal Media" Meme, pointing out that it is a fabrication of the Nixon boyz.

Two years ago on this date, Dredd Blog posted the following:

It is little known to the main stream media that they are not liberal, that they are not free, that they are in fact scripted.

But little of the script which can be easily seen comes from Big Brother.

Most of the script that can be easily seen comes from the inside soul of those who aspire to be free press journalists and those who just want to make up the news.

There is a sense of pride, of patriotism, of evangelism in the main stream media today, which is driven like the failing disaster called health care, by the profit motive.

So very much like the Ferengi, they labor under the decidedly false notion that everything must have a profit motive to be really pure.

"I made a good profit on Mrs. McNulty's kidneys" is no different than "we really got some good profit from that story the Pentagon gave us the exclusive on".

Any questions?
