Is Comet Elenin the Blue Star Kachina?

I’ve had a longstanding interest in the ancient wisdom writings of various cultures and traditions, and been wondering about the source of the various prophecies that are inherent in many of these, especially those that have global significance.
The most likely explanation I can see is based on the observation that natural phenomena are cyclical. If that is a universal truth, then what will happen in the future is fundamentally a recurrence of what has happened in the past. So at least some of the prophetic writings may actually be tales about what people experienced in the distant past.

Over thousands of years and hundreds of retellings, the stories may have become seriously distorted, making them hard to understand, and differences in the particulars of our civilization from those of the past, makes it difficult for us to relate them to our present circumstances.

The ancients all seem to have had an intense interest in astronomical phenomena, suggesting that we too need to watch the skies and be aware of the approach of any astronomical bodies that could possibly disturb Earths peaceful and mainly benign environment.

Years ago I read Emanuel Velikovsky’s Worlds in Collision, and more recently, some of Zecharia Sitchin’s works. These suggest some rather startling explanations of various mysteries reported in the Bible and elsewhere. Now as 2012 approaches, there’s a lot of speculation about the meaning of native American prophecies and attempts to relate them to speculations about comet Elenin, Planet X, Nibiru, Wormwood, etc. Could any of these be the object of the prophecies?  Could cataclysmic Earth events be immanent?

What bears watching is the comet called Elenin which is transiting our solar system right now. Elenin’s closest approach to the Sun will occur on or about September 11, 2011. That’s essentially NOW. As it continues its journey, it will come very close to Earth, closer than the planet Venus. That will occur within a matter of weeks.

Here is some pertinent information that you may want to study. Watch the videos too.–t.h.g.

PANEL: John DiNardo, Richard Shaw and Ed Douglas

On the 3rd of August, the Minor Planet Center posted the latest observation data for Comet Elenin plus this one rather curious footnote. “The recent observations of C/2010 X1 (Elenin) are discordant, presumably due to the lack of any obvious condensation. It is probable that this comet is disintegrating.”

The operative word here is “probable” which is not to be confused with “has.” Nonetheless, previous announcements that Comet Elenin would disintegrate were spun by the media to appear as though it actually had. Consequently, this misleading spin was very effective in deflating public interest.

The serious conversation now taking place, is about whether Elenin will disintegrate. Recent elongation and dimming are physical signs of that possibility. Therefore the real question, which Leonid Elenin constantly addresses these days, is whether or not it will explode.

Lacking clear imagery of the nucleus, Leonid Elenin predicts that Comet Elenin will crumble and not explode – presumably, to quell public concerns. However, prophecy predicts that our worst nightmare could be realized with an explosive disintegration or violent outburst.

In this interview, the panel will address these issues in terms of the science available and the significant amount of prophecy now converging on this comet. Then compare all that with current Earth changes. GO

If Elenin Disintegrates, What Could Come Our Way?

September 1st, 2011 · No Comments

Since the first release of the video, Comet Elenin Forecast for 9/2011 to 1/2012 and the Hopi Blue Star Kachina by Marshall Masters on August 23, 2011, new developments are adding new dimension to this issue. Namely, a flurry of Internet posts and articles inferring Comet Elenin has disintegrated.

However, as of this publication date, no credible evidence has been presented to back these inferences that Comet Elenin has in fact, disintegrated. Rather, what is now being reported, is that Comet Elenin has dimmed and that some astronomers are predicting it will not survive perihelion. Elenin’s closest distance to the Sun which occurs on or about September 11, 2011.

Despite premature debunker spin, that reliable sources are not reporting any observation of an actual disintegration of Comet Elenin. Rather, they report dimming and that Elenin could disintegrate in the near future.

Nonetheless, trickily worded headlines spin the notion that Comet Elenin has in fact disintegrated. Ostensibly, to quash pubic concerns about this comet.

Whether these misleading headlines are based in expedient hubris or malevolence intention makes no difference. Either way, the confusion will stymie the interest of many, at a time when they should be reviewing their own preparation and planning efforts.  GO

More preparedness resoures

A message from Jim Farley in Montana alerted me to Matt Stein’s new book, When Disaster Strikes. Jim is General Manager of SOS General Store and an expert on preparedness and survival. Jim says, “Besides getting off the power grid, we are very gung-ho about getting off the food grid.” In addition, he has a lot so say about alternative building systems and low-cost shelter. One of the systems that he works with is “prefabricated structural polystyrene panels with a wire mesh called Tridipanels.”

I asked my good friend Bill Ford, who happens to be a professional architect from Arizona, what he thought of this building system. Here is what he had to say:

I looked up tridipanel. I have seen it before; basically styrofoam with wire trusses projecting out from each face of the foam core. When you gunite each face with a minimum 1 1/2” of concrete it gets very strong and keeps the hard shell on both sides for durability and a little thermal mass to the interior. Good system. Expensive around here, so never caught on. More common are structurally insulated panels (SIPS) and a myriad of insulated concrete forms (ICFs). There are many ICF systems available. I am not crazy about SIPS because I don’t like the wafer board skins on the SIPS and I have never been crazy about putting all the mass (concrete) on the inside of the ICF. Durosol would be a preference for an ICF, since instead of foam, they use a natural insulating fiber and concrete mix. I also like Rastra which is pricey, but is considered an ICF. Durosol is used more in Canada. For the money, cinder blocks are still appealing and last forever. I try and stay away from frame because termites love it, but it is cheap. Adobe and rammed earth is always a favorite, but even here, it is expensive. Steel is good, but for residential, you have to be careful about expansion and contraction, i.e., creaking and cracking stucco. A lot of people are looking at architectural grade cement board products for exposed exterior skin over steel. Can work pretty good for inexpensive pre-fabs.

As the mega-crisis deepens and uncertainty builds about the system we rely on, it seems prudent to spend some time learning about how to provide for our own food, shelter, and energy needs.

Police Intelligence Analyst Tony Farrel: 7/7 Was an Inside Job

This video interview tells a fascinating story of one intelligent and courageous professional who came to see another “inconvenient truth.”

An Principal Intelligence Analyst for South Yorkshire Police has spoken out about the July 7th ’05 London Bombings. Tony Farrell who has served for the police since 1998 is convinced as he can be that the bombings were a false flag attack carried out by intelligence agencies. In July 2010 he was asked to compile a threat assessment report for South Yorkshire Police. His own research lead him to believe the major threat in the UK today is from an “internal tyranny” which the public are slowly finding out about. He believes the public’s reaction to these facts may present a threat of public unrest. He was dismissed from his post last year because his views were considered untenable, but the police officers who sacked him did not disagree with his views! In fact they seemed to encourage him to appeal the decision. He is now awaiting a tribunal for unfair dismissal taking place in September 2011.

This case could be of major political importance, not only for the UK, but for America, as well.–t.h.g.

TOKYO ELECTRIC TO BUILD US NUCLEAR PLANTS
The no-BS info on Japan’s disastrous nuclear operators

by Greg Palast
New York – March 14, 2011

I need to speak to you, not as a reporter, but in my former capacity as lead investigator in several government nuclear plant fraud and racketeering investigations.

I don’t know the law in Japan, so I can’t tell you if Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) can plead insanity to the homicides about to happen.

But what will Obama plead?  The Administration, just months ago, asked Congress to provide a $4 billion loan guarantee for two new nuclear reactors to be built and operated on the Gulf Coast of Texas — by Tokyo Electric Power and local partners.  As if the Gulf hasn’t suffered enough.

Here are the facts about Tokyo Electric and the industry you haven’t heard on CNN:

The failure of emergency systems at Japan’s nuclear plants comes as no surprise to those of us who have worked in the field.

Nuclear plants the world over must be certified for what is called “SQ” or “Seismic Qualification.”  That is, the owners swear that all components are designed for the maximum conceivable shaking event, be it from an earthquake or an exploding Christmas card from Al Qaeda.

The most inexpensive way to meet your SQ is to lie.  The industry does it all the time. The government team I worked with caught them once, in 1988, at the Shoreham plant in New York.  Correcting the SQ problem at Shoreham would have cost a cool billion, so engineers were told to change the tests from ‘failed’ to ‘passed.’

The company that put in the false safety report?  Stone & Webster, now the nuclear unit of Shaw Construction which will work with Tokyo Electric to build the Texas plant, Lord help us.

There’s more.

Last night I heard CNN reporters repeat the official line that the tsunami disabled the pumps needed to cool the reactors, implying that water unexpectedly got into the diesel generators that run the pumps.

These safety back-up systems are the ‘EDGs’ in nuke-speak: Emergency Diesel Generators.  That they didn’t work in an emergency is like a fire department telling us they couldn’t save a building because “it was on fire.”

What dim bulbs designed this system?  One of the reactors dancing with death at Fukushima Station 1 was built by Toshiba.  Toshiba was also an architect of the emergency diesel system.

Now be afraid. Obama’s $4 billion bail-out-in-the-making is called the South Texas Project.  It’s been sold as a red-white-and-blue way to make power domestically with a reactor from Westinghouse, a great American brand.  However, the reactor will be made substantially in Japan by the company that bought the US brand name, Westinghouse — Toshiba.

I once had a Toshiba computer.  I only had to send it in once for warranty work.  However, it’s kind of hard to mail back a reactor with the warranty slip inside the box if the fuel rods are melted and sinking halfway to the earth’s core.

TEPCO and Toshiba don’t know what my son learned in 8th grade science class: tsunamis follow Pacific Rim earthquakes. So these companies are real stupid, eh?  Maybe.  More likely is that the diesels and related systems wouldn’t have worked on a fine, dry afternoon.

Back in the day, when we checked the emergency back-up diesels in America, a mind-blowing number flunked.  At the New York nuke, for example, the builders swore under oath that their three diesel engines were ready for an emergency. They’d been tested.  The tests were faked, the diesels run for just a short time at low speed.  When the diesels were put through a real test under emergency-like conditions, the crankshaft on the first one snapped in about an hour, then the second and third.  We nicknamed the diesels, “Snap, Crackle and Pop.”

(Note:  Moments after I wrote that sentence, word came that two of three diesels failed at the Tokai Station as well.)

In the US, we supposedly fixed our diesels after much complaining by the industry. But in Japan, no one tells Tokyo Electric to do anything the Emperor of Electricity doesn’t want to do.

I get lots of confidential notes from nuclear industry insiders.  One engineer, a big name in the field, is especially concerned that Obama waved the come-hither check to Toshiba and Tokyo Electric to lure them to America.  The US has a long history of whistleblowers willing to put themselves on the line to save the public. In our racketeering case in New York, the government only found out about the seismic test fraud because two courageous engineers, Gordon Dick and John Daly, gave our team the documentary evidence.

In Japan, it’s simply not done.  The culture does not allow the salary-men, who work all their their lives for one company, to drop the dime.

Not that US law is a wondrous shield:  both engineers in the New York case were fired and blacklisted by the industry.  Nevertheless, the government (local, state, federal) brought civil racketeering charges against the builders. The jury didn’t buy the corporation’s excuses and, in the end, the plant was, thankfully, dismantled.

Am I on some kind of xenophobic anti-Nippon crusade?  No.  In fact, I’m far more frightened by the American operators in the South Texas nuclear project, especially Shaw. Stone & Webster, now the Shaw nuclear division, was also the firm that conspired to fake the EDG tests in New York. (The company’s other exploits have been exposed by their former consultant, John Perkins, in his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.)
If the planet wants to shiver, consider this:  Toshiba and Shaw have recently signed a deal to become world-wide partners in the construction of nuclear stations.

The other characters involved at the South Texas Plant that Obama is backing should also give you the willies.  But as I’m in the middle of investigating the American partners, I’ll save that for another day.

So, if we turned to America’s own nuclear contractors, would we be safe?  Well, two of the melting Japanese reactors, including the one whose building blew sky high, were built by General Electric of the Good Old US of A.

After Texas, you’re next.  The Obama Administration is planning a total of $56 billion in loans for nuclear reactors all over America.

And now, the homicides:

CNN is only interested in body counts, how many workers burnt by radiation, swept away or lost in the explosion.  These plants are now releasing radioactive steam into the atmosphere. Be skeptical about the statements that the “levels are not dangerous.”  These are the same people who said these meltdowns could never happen.  Over years, not days, there may be a thousand people, two thousand, ten thousand who will suffer from cancers induced by this radiation.

In my New York investigation, I had the unhappy job of totaling up post-meltdown “morbidity” rates for the county government.   It would be irresponsible for me to estimate the number of cancer deaths that will occur from these releases without further information; but it is just plain criminal for the Tokyo Electric shoguns to say that these releases are not dangerous.  Indeed, the fact that residents near the Japanese nuclear plants were not issued iodine pills to keep at the ready shows TEPCO doesn’t care who lives and who dies whether in Japan or the USA. The carcinogenic isotopes that are released at Fukushima are already floating to Seattle with effects we simply cannot measure.

Heaven help us. Because Obama won’t.
