North Korea Nukes — A ‘Real’ Problem?

I’ve heard a great deal of disbelief come from contacts of mine regarding nuclear weapons and N. Korea.  If we listen to ‘the media’, it sounds like they’re just making a lot of noise with no real threat of truly hurting us here in the U.S.  But it’s just a matter of how you ‘translate’ the information as to whether you believe N. Korea is a threat and to what degree.

A few years ago they were doing testing with their rockets and at least three of them blew up at around 40 miles up.  The consensus was that N. Korea only produced junk and that they were not a real threat.  After all, with their rockets traveling a short distance (horizontally) and blowing up only 40 miles high (too low for orbit), what damage could they do?

James Woolsey is the ex-CIA director and was on the EMP commission a few years ago.  He pointed out that a 40 mile high trajectory was sufficient to do significant damage with a rocket if it had an EMP on it.  That altitude would take out a large part of the U.S. electrical grid!  A 100+ mile altitude EMP attack would pretty much kill all three power grids in the U.S.

A week ago N. Korea fired off a rocket and it only traveled 800 miles toward Japan, but reached an altitude of almost 300 miles!  Consider for a moment that if you wanted your enemy to think of you as dumb, you could ‘lob’ a rocket high and then allow it to come down ‘short’ leaving your opponent to thinking you still don’t know how to make rockets.  Although not a rocket scientist, my assumption is that the same rocket could travel a lot further with a ‘better’ trajectory. However Mr. Woolsey has spoken on this particular subject as recent as July 2017 in a CNBC interview.

One has to wonder who the dummy is at this point, especially considering that congress approved a bill to pay for the hardening of the grid over seven years ago?  But have we since addressed the problem?  No..?  The public should wonder..?!

The World Just Keeps Getting Smaller

Since Kitty Hawk we have found ourselves moving faster and quieter every year — in the air.  However, we may find ourselves doing so under ground or water in the not too distant future.

Elan Musk has proposed a new transportation system which uses: a partial vacuum, levitation, and electromagnetic technology.  The concept is loosely based on the old vacuum tube mail delivery system used in the early 1900’s.  However it will allow travel at speeds never considered before.  And, it may be a good travel option for those who hate to fly!!

Age of Automation

You’ve heard of it earlier.  Now it’s in England…  coming to a town near you.!?

Amazon is now shipping products in England via drone!  Once they’ve gathered enough data, they will roll out the program here in the U.S. where daunting ‘regulations’ exist (for our good?).  When that day comes, just about everything will be available to you at home within ’30 minutes’!!  Watch this video for their report.

Being Forewarned is Good, But Being Prepared is Better

I have written numerous articles about EMP’s (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) for years now.  Most people think they are all a matter of scare tactics.  However do not dismiss EMP’s because they are a depressive topic — that ostrich reaction may cost you.

I just received information regarding the messiah’s writing of yet another executive order — about EMP’s.  You might consider reading this article and take it to heart.  It could be very important to you.!!?  If after reading it you’re still a skeptic, please read the link following it.

Giving Up Our Control of The Internet

The internet was first ‘invented’ by universities in the western states (not Al Gore).  Of course, once it took off, the federal government had to be the overseer of it (being the all encompassing entity that it is).  Since, whenever someone wants to create a new website, a specific Internet Protocol (IP) address has to be assigned to it.  That process is controlled by a government entity within the United States.

Currently our emperor is attempting to give control to the internet to a UN based group outside of the U.S.  What this means is that if enough ‘pressure’ is applied, a website may not be able to renew their license and/or continue with their objective — i.e., to communicate information that they want distributed.  In essence, this means we would be giving away our sovereign right to freedom of speech.  Which by the way is one of the few remaining vehicles for the public learning the truth about certain subjects and often learning anything about them!

Some people are not threatened by this ‘minor’ move on Obama’s part.  They believe it’s only some ‘inane technical nonsense’ of no consequence.  But I would argue that this website would not exist if those in the UN found that what I have to say ‘offensive’.  (Not that it could happen!!?)

Read the following article on how the governors of Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Oklahoma are suing the feds regarding this subject.  I would think that if these fours states find this of concern, maybe we should..??

Edison vs. Tesla — A Great Story!

You’ve heard about Thomas Edison.  You know, the inventor of the light bulb.  But hey, he invented electricity for homes and everything too right.??  Well, to be exact, he invented ‘DC’ power.  AC power came from somewhere else.

But that’s what we use today in homes!?  If not Edison, then who invented it?

Ah, that is the essence of this blog article — the story behind Edison.  We all have believed for years that he was the inventor of everything electrical to start.  But alas, we’ve been duped again.  If you have a bit of time to hear a great story and learn about where the power for our homes came from, click on the two links below.  They’ll bring up a video of Glenn Beck telling the story in a professional way.  He’s quite the story teller!!  Great entertainment, especially for your kids to learn the truth about electrical power.  Not to mention the ‘human nature’ of people and how they are ‘tied together’.

September 30th — Internet ‘Change’?

As if we don’t have enough trouble in this world, we now have our ‘administration’ attempting to give control of the world’s internet to of all organizations, the U.N.  Being the largest collection of despots one can imagine, it is reasonable to assume that censorship would be right around the corner with such a group in charge.

The following article information is from the Wallstreet Journal and Washington Post — one scary proposition.  Hopefully someone will come to the rescue and save the internet.

 


The first step toward the global suppression of free speech on the Internet will take place at midnight on September 30, when the Obama administration cedes control of the World Wide Web to foreign interests.

L. Gordon Crovitz of The Washington Post has penned two pieces outlining the collision course of American free speech. The first, “Stop Obama’s Internet Giveaway” in March, 2016, and a recent follow-up piece called “An Internet Giveaway to the U.N.” discuss the potential fallout of not preventing President Obama from allowing a government contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to expire.

Under Obama’s direction, the Commerce Department was charged with ending American oversight and ensure that foreign entities could not make an internet power grab.  Crovitz rightly disagrees with that outcome, stating that “because of the (Obama) administration’s naiveté or arrogance, U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship…”

Without a U.S. agreement to operate with antitrust exemptions, ICANN would likely seek to be overseen by another agency, organization or foreign power. As a non-profit, the body’s rules and regulations are determined by a board and the shift would be a tremendous opportunity for countries that routinely suppress free speech, such as Russia and China, to infiltrate, gain authority and impose their worldviews on a global scale.

Likewise, the Obama administration has been no friend to free speech. Government employees in the administration have already been accused of suppressing opposing political views.

In particular, the Internal Revenue Service came under scrutiny for targeting conservative political groups and impeding their ability to gain non-profit status before the last presidential election.

In a recent article, The Daily Wire charges that “The lobbying for the end of U.S. control of the Internet intensified due to Edward Snowden. After Snowden’s leaks of the National Security Agency’s government surveillance emerged, ICANN and other foreign governments used the U.S.’s use of surveillance in other countries as reason to end U.S. control of Internet governance.”

Snowden, a whistleblower, leaked classified information which many viewed as war crimes by the U.S. military to the non-profit journalistic organization WikiLeaks. Snowden has been living as an exile in Russia and has been charged in absentia by the United States under the 1917 Espionage Act for absconding with classified documents.

In recent months, WikiLeaks also made a splash by releasing Democratic National Committee communications that suggested the party skewed its dealing against presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Although shutting down an online organization such as WikiLeaks would run contrary to the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment, countries like Russia and China, among others, may be more inclined to end the dissemination of such sensitive materials. Under a different set of standards, such information could be kept from the public going forward.

The Daily Wire goes on to point out that once the U.S. surrenders control over ICANN, “it will likely fall under the (International Telecommunications Unit) ITU’s control and risk being subject to censorship.”

Journalists at both The Daily Wire and Wall Street Journal agree that handing over control could have dangerous ramifications.

“Even more chilling is the fact that ITU had passed a treaty that provided ‘authority to governments to close off their citizens’ access to the global Internet'” and creating ‘a digital Iron Curtain.'”

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Wisconsin Sen. Sean Duffy have introduced a bill to stop the shift in internet power and Investor’s Business Daily noted as far back as three years ago Cruz was concerned about this day arriving.

“The likes of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Chinese President Xi Jinping should not dictate what can be read, written, distributed, bought and sold on the internet,” the former presidential candidate wrote. “Countries that do not give their own people the right to speak freely deserve no say in what Americans can say and do on the internet.”

The Texas senator has also called for potential administrative regulations to prevent opening this Pandora’s Box. And even before the clock strikes midnight on U.S. free speech protections, the seeds of China’s influence are already being sown.

ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé recently agreed to become a senior advisor to China’s World Internet Conference, which is an organization Beijing has developed directly to compete with ICANN. According to The Washington Post, “Its goal is to replace the open Internet with full government control and global censorship.”

When confronted by Sen. Cruz about China’s internet censorship and relationship with ICANN, Chehade appeared to threaten that if the America retains oversight, it “would have grave repercussions on the U.S.”

Recent studies show that 66 percent of Americans oppose relinquishing control of the internet and 69 percent say that it’s either “somewhat” or “very likely” that a country like China, Russia or Iran would attempt to seize control.

As University of Surrey Prof. Alan Woodward succinctly put it, this is “about who officially controls the foundations of the internet/web addresses and domain names, without which the network wouldn’t function.”
