Glenn Beck delivered an unprecedented punch Saturday at his Restore Honor Rally.  Watching on UStream Live, at times it seemed like I was at Church, hearing a homily about patriotism and the intertwining of God in the founding of America. Just like as it often happens in church, towards then end I am getting bored.

Flipping channels, I also saw Reverend Al Sharpton’s Reclaim the Dream Rally.  Clearly, Glenn Beck’s Restore Honor Rally created much more fervor in the hearts of attendees with a much larger turnout.  

The article, A Tale of Two Rallies reviews the days events noting that the Lincoln Memorial was packed a couple hours before the start of “Restoring Honor” while at 10:30am — Thirty minutes before his “Reclaim the Dream” rally start, Al Sharpton has some catching up to do.  http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/27080?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Sharpton never really caught up, in as much as the mainstream media did it’s best to discredit Beck and make it look like there was a larger turnout for Sharpton. 

Reading other opinions and news on the events and I stumble into this photo from The New York Daily News, http://www.nydailynews.com.  Check out the cool little frog who is so small it fits inside Lincoln’s head!

INDRANEIL DAS/AFP/Getty Images

Pretty neat photograph to illustrate just how small this frog is.  Wait a minute, why is “In God We Trust,” blurry?  The top of Lincoln’s head seems to be intact, but not the words.

The photo is credited to Indranil Das, an independent documentary photographer based in Kolkata, India. He travels widely to document the rich and wide variety of socio – political – economic scenarios prevailing in India.  (http://www.lightstalkers.org/indranil-das

Perhaps Mr. Das is a non-believer in God.  Does it matter if Das is a Hindu or a Baptist?  A penny is a penny.  A frog is a frog. Why take the effort to remove the words that are clearly there? In God We Trust.  Is God taboo?  Beck, Sharpton and others sure don’t think so.

The Microhyla nepenthicola, is Asia’s smallest frog.  It is all rather ironic that an acronym for F.R.O.G. is, Finally Relying On God.

Beck is a Mormon, Sharpton is a Pentecostal/Baptist, and the jury still debates what President Obama’s religion is.  I don’t know what religion Abe Lincoln was but, “Lincoln read the Bible regularly and was committed to God and morality throughout his life. Some historians call him a Deist,” wrote http://www.adherents.com/people/pl/Abraham_Lincoln.html

Lincoln believed in God and freed millions from slavery.  Obama was sworn in on his Bible.  “Malia Obama, the 10-year-old daughter of President-elect Obama, plans to make herself right at home in the White House and has already called dibs on using Abraham Lincoln’s desk for her homework. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/President44/story?id=6339711&page=1

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, said “Martin Luther King, delivered 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. – The full speech is at http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkihaveadream.htm

Is it honorable in America to protest a Muslim mosque near ground zero in NYC?  UncleRUSH, aka Russell Simmons of Def Jam records doesn’t think so in a recent letter to the WSJ. http://globalgrind.com/channel/news/content/1764666/come-with-me-to-tennessee-or-stay-out-of-my-backyard/?pc=1&pi=0 

Let’s hope the spirit of Abe Lincoln and Martin Luther King, and the words of Glenn Beck and Al Sharpton bring America together, in the name of God to do what is right, just and moral in this Republic.  We are, one nation under God.

SNAFU.  

I’ve got a bilateral eye injury.  The water hose sprinkler got me in the face at full stream in both eyes – at a distance of about two feet.  Ouch, how stupid?  Can’t see so well to read or type, and everyone else is unavailable.

Since it is August and Congress is on a vacation, I’m taking a break too.  I think I’ll jump through a sprinkler as opposed to shooting myself with one!  Stupid is as stupid does.  Be back shortly!

Blaming the Russian heat wave on the weather and not something conspiratorial like HAARP, is this post from WUWT.

More on the Russian heat wave - satellite analysis By Steve Goddard Dr Pielke's excellent post gave me an idea. NASA said : Not all parts of the Russian Federation experienced unusual warmth on July 20–27, 2010. A large expanse of northern central Russia, for instance, exhibits below-average temperatures. Areas of atypical warmth, however, predominate in the east and west. Orange- and red-tinged areas extend from eastern Siberia toward the southwest, but the most obvious area of unusual warmth oc … Read More

What caused the H1N1 Swine Flu Outbreak?

For a minute I’ll take off my tinfoil hat.  I will not remind you of all the conspiracy surrounding the unusual events surrounding its origin.  I won’t rant about the fact that Baxter Labs has a manufacturing plant near ground zero, where the pandemic was first identified.

Scientist believe they have found one reason why the H1N1 replicated so fast in humans. A new study from PLOS Pathogens, Biological and Structural Characterization of a Host-Adapting Amino Acid in Influenza Virus  http://www.plospathogens.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.ppat.1001034 shows that a lysine amino acid is located in a different place in the protein strand than expected, and possibly the reason why H1N1 can adapt so easily.

…these results have led to the concept that PB2-627K or PB2-701N are critical for efficient influenza virus replication in mammalian species. Nevertheless, the pandemic H1N1 viruses and some H5N1 influenza viruses isolated from humans do not possess these amino acids. Here, we sought to identify additional amino acid changes that facilitate virus adaptation in mammalian species.

The findings offer an interesting insight.

The study was carried out on ferret, ostrich, mice, dog cell lines and human embryonic kidney cells. All influenza viruses used in this study were amplified in MDCK (dog) cells.

…engineered synthetic genes for the PB2 gene of influenza A virus strains A/Vietnam/1203/04 (H5N1) (AAT73550) and A/Mexico/InDRE4487/09 (H1N1) (ACQ73384)…The C-terminal amino acid residues 538–741 from both strains were cloned into an engineered pET vector using the Polymerase Incomplete Primer Extension (PIPE) cloning technology

Engineered synthetic genes and cloned amino acid strains!  Wow, welcome to the world of bio-engineering. 

This is the part where we look for our tinfoil hat and ask if the H1N1 Swine Flu Virus and the H5N1 Avian Flu Virus, aren’t engineered or cloned in the first place?  Could mother nature have mutated the 1918 virus naturally within 100 years?  There has been co-circulation of multiple H1N1 sequences across the globe.  Is it more likely someone by intention or accident let the proverbial rat out of the cage?

Mexico has cancelled it’s Pandemic emergency.  I double dog dare you to find where the declared the swine flu outbreak’s national emergency declaration has ended in the U.S.A.   Enacting Emergency powers, https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/25/h1n1-swine-flu-national-emergency-for-constitution/ gives unprecidented opportunities for government control.

Whatever biological significance this study has found, don’t think for a New York minute that further mutation isn’t coming anytime soon.  

“After analyzing multiple samples of the new flu virus, the team ascertained that in some cases the HA of the new H1N1 strain have mutated, allowing the strain to stick to human cells more easily….the same mutations have been found in HA of the H5N1 strain of influenza, the highly virulent bird flu, which kills about 60 percent of those it infects. ” http://biomedreports.com/articles/most-popular/1438-h1n1-flu-has–

Is conspiracy theory nothing more than cognitive dissonance?

Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding contradictory ideas simultaneously. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. They do this by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and actions.[2] Dissonance is also reduced by justifying, blaming, and denying. It is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance

What is the motivational drive behind conspiracy?  I’d say it is to ask questions, validate truth, challenge the unknown, suspect what is known in order to come to the conclusion that sometimes, Situation Normal is All F‘kd Up- SNAFU. Wired magazine had this to say,

Although we’re all vulnerable to cognitive dissonance – and the paranoid style has always been a loud presence in American politics – we seem to squander ever more time on worthless conversations about Obama’s birth certificate or the spurious link between autism and vaccines. After all, thanks to Google we can find “evidence” in support of practically any belief. If you can imagine the conspiracy theory, there is a website out there ardently promoting it, and a clan of fellow believers who share your peculiar obsession with fluoridated drinking water and the New World Order. http://derrenbrown.co.uk/blog/2010/08/psychology-conspiracy-theories/

I am pretty sure that cognitive dissonance is not paranoia.  It is rather, a justifiable means of exploring what someone else defines as the truth.  To say that it is worthless to seek out the President of the United States birth origin or find a connection with vaccine use and autism, I find rather appalling.  Hardly a waste of time as a U.S. Citizen or for a parent of a child with autism.

Can cognitive dissonance be familial?  I believe so.   Last night our family went for a late night swim under some raindrops.  There was a low ceiling and what was clearly an airplane to the adults, was not so obvious to one of the children who proclaimed, “Look a UFO!”   We’ve talked about the possibility of UFO’s, aliens and the like,  and in doing so I wonder if we did not preclude them to cognitive dissonance- we believe and so do they.

Throw religion into the mix.  We are Catholic, conservative Republicans and so are our children.   A product of upbringing or ?

The grandparents instilled cognitive dissonance and I suspect we are passing it on too.  We justify good, bad, heaven, hell, what is acceptable, what is the norm, what is a conspiracy and what is reality.  Is not uncomfortable by any means to put on the tinfoil hat, unless of course there is a lightening storm.

The idea of “sour grapes” comes from the fable The Fox and the Grapes by Aesop (ca. 620–564 BCE). The fox is unable to reach the grapes, and, experiencing cognitive dissonance, reduces that dissonance by believing the grapes are sour. This example follows a pattern: one desires something, finds it unattainable, and reduces one’s dissonance by criticizing it. Jon Elster calls this pattern “adaptive preference formation.” -wiki

Maybe “adaptive preference formation” is nothing more than the brain justifying what it can’t have or processing what it is that we believe, or want to believe.

I happen to like a good conspiracy.  It helps me stay on my toes, to not take things for granted, to question, to learn, to share insights.  Too not be scared when a UFO lands on my farm!

The question is whether there is a parallel to be made with the individual level, where society would also influence the shape of the phenomenon, so that the interaction is also mutual at the sociological level? For instance, during the 1896-97 airship wave in United States (and Canada), the phenomenon was first described as strange lights in the sky, but it was reported by the press, nationwide, as “airships”. Could the social expectations to see an airship in the sky influenced the phenomenon so that it took an airship shape in the days and months that ensued? http://parasociology.blogspot.com/

Surely someone can come up with a theory for anything, but numerous conspiracy theories have come true.

The JFK assassination plot, aliens crash landing at Roswell, the 9/11 truth movement and charges of government surveillance are all an indelible part of our pop culture landscape and are by and large, total bullshit. So where does your average conspiracy buff go to learn about shadowy plots that aren’t pure tinfoil hattery? Look no further than: http://www.cracked.com/article_15974_7-insane-conspiracies-that-actually-happened.html#ixzz0vqRVK921

Valkyrie and MKULTRA actually did exist, maybe they still do with different players today.

There is no conspiracy behind the fact that you have to, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” –Lucille Ball, actress and comedienne, born today in 1911.

Does cognitive dissonance allow for a conspiracy that it’s okay to love someone else, convinced that they love you back, while you love yourself?

I love it, and a good conspiracy too.

The Senate has confirmed Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama’s solicitor general, as the newest Supreme Court justice.

Talk about a belated birthday gift for President Obama. 

Sen. Scott Brown announced Thursday that he won’t vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. “I approach the duty of voting on nominees to the United States Supreme Court with a deep sense of the constitutional responsibility of the Senate to provide its advice and consent. Elena Kagan’s nomination is my first opportunity to consider a nominee to the Supreme Court. First, let me say that I have a great deal of respect for Elena Kagan. She has an impressive resume, and in my private meeting with her I found her to be brilliant, as you might expect from a former dean of Harvard Law School. However, I cannot vote to confirm Elena Kagan. The reason is simple. I believe nominees to the Supreme Court should have previously served on the bench. Lacking that, I look for many years of practical courtroom experience to compensate for the absence of prior judicial experience. In Elena Kagan’s case, she is missing both. When it comes to the Supreme Court, experience matters. No classroom can substitute for the courtroom itself, where decisions are made that affect the day-to-day lives of American citizens, and where one’s judicial character and temperament is shaped in favor of the fair and just application of the law. The best umpires, to use the popular analogy, must not only call balls and strikes, but also have spent enough time on the playing field to know the strike zone. Therefore, I cannot support Elena Kagan’s nomination.” http://www.politico.com/politico44/perm/0810/not_this_time_6e067a7e-c218-4212-a99b-fae0140c6ce0.html

  M82_optical

An unknown object in galaxy M82 12 million light-years away is sending out radio waves.

“We don’t know what it is,” says co-discoverer Tom Muxlow of Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics near Macclesfield, UK. But its apparent sideways velocity is four times the speed of light. This “superluminal” motion occurs usually in high-speed jets of material bursting out by black holes. 

 “The new object, which appeared in May 2009, has left us scratching our heads – we’ve never seen anything quite like this before,” said Dr Muxlow. “The object turned on very rapidly within a few days and shows no sign of decaying in brightness over the first few months of its existence. http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2010/08/update-unknown-object-in-nearby-galaxy-sending-mysterious-radio-waves-.html

The object was discovered using the MERLIN network of radio telescopes in the UK.  MERLIN, operated by Jodrell Bank Observatory, is the Multi-Element Radio Linked Interferometer Network, an array of radio telescopes distributed around Great Britain. http://www.merlin.ac.uk/. With a maximum baseline of 217 km, the angular resolution of e-MERLIN at 5 GHz is 40 mas, comparable to the Hubble Space Telescope. http://www.e-merlin.ac.uk/summary.html

Hubba Wabba, that is one impressive telescope, but not as impressive as the findings.  Whatever the object is, it has not changed in brightness over the course of a year, and its spectrum is steady.  Its apparent sideways velocity is four times the speed of light!

It is a solid, liquid or gas?

M82 is not alone in the universe of sounds from space.

In September, 2003

NASA’s CHANDRA’s X-ray Observatory have found, for the first time, sound waves from a supermassive black hole. The “note” is the deepest ever detected from any object in our Universe. The tremendous amounts of energy carried by these sound waves may solve a longstanding problem in astrophysics.

The black hole resides in the Perseus cluster of galaxies located 250 million light years from Earth. In 2002, astronomers obtained a deep Chandra observation that shows ripples in the gas filling the cluster. These ripples are evidence for sound waves that have traveled hundreds of thousands of light years away from the cluster’s central black hole

…observations had revealed the prodigious amounts of light and heat created by black holes. “Now we have detected their sound, too,” says Andrew Fabian of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, England http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2003/09sep_blackholesounds/ 

The full NASA press release is at http://chandra.harvard.edu/press/03_releases/press_090903.html

In July 2004, radio emissions were picked up by the Cassini spacecraft as it passed through Saturn’s rings.  The sounds uploaded and tweaked by a YouTube user, propose a speech pattern.  The original Link to NASA .WAV File for Download..
http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia…

Is it Alien Speech?

It sounds sort of like the high frequency pitch or tone that many people hear that remains elusive in its origin.  Written previously about in these two articles- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/07/29/haarp-what-is-making-that-noise/ and https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/22/rining-noise-mosquito-whine-haarp-aliens-elf-implant/.

It was believed that all magnetised planets emit radio waves into space from the polar regions thought to represent the rotation of the planet.  As it would turn, so it would make a noise, but it turns out that is not true on Saturn.

However, over the years the period of the pulsing of the radio emissions has varied, and since the rotation of a planet cannot be easily sped up or slowed down, the hunt for the source of the varying radio period has become one of the most perplexing puzzles inplanetary science. 

Nichols and team use images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of Saturn’s auroras obtained between 2005-2009 to show that, not only do the radio emissions pulse, but the auroras beat in tandem with the radio.

“This is an important discovery for two reasons,” Dr Nichols said. “First, it provides a long-suspected but hitherto missing link between the radio and auroral emissions, and second, it adds a critical tool in diagnosing the cause of Saturn’s irregular heartbeat.”

Auroras, more commonly known as the “northern lights” on Earth, are caused when charged particles in space are funnelled along a planet’s magnetic field into the planet’s upper atmosphere near the poles, whereupon they impact theatmospheric particles and cause them to glow. This happens when a planet’s magnetic field is stressed by, for example, the buffeting from the stream of particles emitted by the Sun, or when moons such as Enceladus or Io expel material into the near-planet space.  http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2010/08/mystery-of-saturns-radio-pulse.html

Here is a recording of radio wave emissions from Saturn. As the solar wind passes across the ten mile thick rings, an oscillation is created and in turn emits a frequency or radio wave.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MvrduueveI&feature=player_embedded

We are receiving radio waves from M82, black holes, and planets.  SETI is on alert as always, looking for the WOW signal again.

With the recent solar storms from Sunspot 1092 this week, I wonder what noise our Earth is sending out into the galaxy and what it is we are really hearing.  As to what we are seeing, there are increasing reports across the country of multiple UFOs moving together and remaining in the sky for longer viewing durations.  http://www.examiner.com/x-2363-UFO-Examiner~y2010m8d5-Multiple-UFOs-typical-of-many-US-reports?cid=examiner-email

Earthquakes are slamming Alaska today as the Solar Storm continues to pummel the earth with geomagnetic activity. 

This morning a Magnitude 6.3 Earthquake struck the  ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., ALASKA. at 2010 August 04 12:58:24 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010znbf.php

6.3M is nothing to shake a stick at. 

HAARP’s magnetometers were fairly calm until the start of the solar storm, kicked off by Sunspot 1052.  It is now picking up significant anomalies in the magnetosphere.  The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:

  • The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
  • The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
  • The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward

HAARP Magnetometer Chain

Real-time monitoring of the Earth’s magnetic field, Data for research and practical application from USGS  is showing major spikes from Alaska all the way to Guam. You can view the real time data at  http://geomag.usgs.gov/realtime/, which supposedly demonstrates a wide dispersal of geomagnetic energy affecting far apart distances. 

As we grab for our tinfoil hat, the Station- CMO Fairbanks, AK, located at 25.13°/212.14° at 197 meters, went OFFLINE BEFORE the quake hit.  It was picked up at almost all reporting stations including as far as the station at SJG, Cayey, PR,71.89°/293.85°, 424 meters.

Scientifically,we are under a solar storm alert, all be it, a supposed minor one.   http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/index.html NOAA Alerts / Bulletins
Latest Alert: Aug 04 1032 UTC ALERT: Geomagnetic K-index of 5.  Yesterday in was an index of 4. 

Latest GOES Solar X-ray Image, 2010 Aug 04 15:25 UTC (Aug 04 09:25 MDT)

Spacequakes have been going on for sometime in our universe, but now we have a model prediction thanks to the satellites circling the Sun. 

In 2007, THEMIS discovered the precursors of spacequakes. The action begins in Earth’s magnetic tail, which is stretched out like a windsock by the million-miles-per-hour solar wind. Sometimes the tail can become so stretched and tension-filled, it snaps back like an over-torqued rubber band.

Solar wind plasma trapped in the tail hurtles toward Earth. On more than one occasion, the five THEMIS spacecraft were in the line of fire when these “plasma jets” swept by. Clearly, the jets were going to hit Earth. But what would happen then? The fleet moved closer to the planet to find out.

“Now we know,” said THEMIS project scientist David Sibeck of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “Plasma jets trigger spacequakes.”

According to THEMIS, the jets crash into the geomagnetic field some 18,600 miles (30,000 km) above Earth’s equator. The impact sets off a rebounding process, in which the incoming plasma actually bounces up and down on the reverberating magnetic field, akin to a tennis ball bouncing up and down on a carpeted floor. The first bounce is a big one, followed by bounces of decreasing amplitude as energy is dissipated in the carpet.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/yahoocanada/100728/canada/violent_spacequakes_shake_earth_from_above

If plasma bounces up and down on the reverberating magnetic field after it crashes someplace above the equator, could it have bounced on over to Alaska to cause this earthquake and the one earlier today- Magnitude 6.4 – EASTERN NEW GUINEA REG, PAPUA NEW GUINEA,  2010 August 04 07:15:33 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010znav.php?

That’s a pretty big bounce.

If the satellites can observe CME’s from the Sun, is there nothing NASA has available to track where the plasma impact occurs on Earth? 

Could this solar alert provide a perfect covert opportunity for advanced weapons experiments using SCALAR weapons?  What are the chances that a station goes off line in the vicinity of an earthquake before one hits?  Could HAARP have fired a beam up to heat the ionosphere causing the quake?

What of Accelerator-based experiments shooting particles through the Earth? A solar storm is the perfect storm to attempt some new experiment that could cause of quakes and disruptions.

The neutrinos are generated at CERN when a proton beam from the Super Proton Synchrotron strikes a target, producing pions and kaons. These quickly decay, giving rise mainly to νμ that pass unhindered through the Earth’s crust towards Gran Sasso. The appearance and subsequent decay of a τ in the OPERA experiment would provide the telltale sign of νμ to ντ oscillation through a charged-current interaction. http://cerncourier.com/cws/article/cern/43178

Recall that the San Grasso Lab was almost ground zero for the Italy Quake!

While this solar storm seems minor, millions of people are getting there first opportunity to see the aurora borealis with a wider than normal viewing area depending on the weather

Auroral Activity Extrapolated from NOAA POES

With all that energy, could a wormhole form due to the magnetic properties of the north pole, interacting with the solar winds?  Shall we send our politicians for a look?

While Alaska and New Guinea are rattling, finally at BP at the  Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill in The Gulf of Mexico, “claimed “a significant milestone” in efforts to plug a leaking well for good on Wednesday ahead of a U.S. government report that will show most of the spilled crude is already gone.

“The good news is that the vast majority of the oil appears to be gone,” Carol Browner said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

 A New York Times story said the report would show three-quarters of the oil released has already evaporated, dispersed, been captured or eliminated. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/reuters/100804/n_top_news/cnews_us_oil_spill

This too shall pass.  Until the next disaster, earthquake, experiment, etc.

As a Solar Storm is heading to Earth, the conspiracy rattles on with reports of high magnitude earthquakes and unusual Magnetometer chart readings from HAARP and USGS. 

Magnitude 5.3 – SOUTHWEST OF SUMATRA, INDONESIA 2010 August 03 08:03:18 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmat.php

Magnitude 5.0 – OFFSHORE TARAPACA, CHILE  2010 August 03 05:29:21 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmaq.php

Magnitude 6.3 – MOLUCCA SEA 2010 August 03 12:08:26 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zma4.html

Magnitude 5.4 – TAJIKISTAN 2010 August 03 16:26:27 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmbf.php

Yadda, yadda.  There are earthquakes everyday, but it is not everyday that the Sun hurls giant Coronal Mass Ejections towards the Earth’s magnetosphere.  On August 1st, a flare, shockwave, filament eruption and CME erupted on the Earth-facing side of the sun.  The CME is heading directly for us — see the SOHO video of the CME.  The storms arrival time? August 3rd, 2010, TODAY.

Solar Sunspot 1092. Image: Oleg Toumilovitch, July 31st, rising over Blairgowrie, South Africa.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the NASA/ESA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected the C3-class solar flare, sunspot #1092.

After sunset,  look west and you will see Venus, Saturn, and Mars have converged to form a triangle.  You will also see the Summer Triangle – technically an asterism, rather than a constellation – formed by the stars Vega, Altair and Deneb.  (https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/08/01/illuminati-triangle-in-the-sky/)  

Scientists said residents of northern regions — possibly including Seattle, as well as parts of Michigan and Maine — may see an unusual display of the aurora borealis, the northern lights. http://www.mercurynews.com/top-stories/ci_15661076?nclick_check=1

NOAA forecasters estimated a 10% chance of major geomagnetic storms and a 45% chance of at least some geomagnetic activity when the clouds arrive on August 3rd and 4th. via http://spaceweather.com/  Wouldn’t you like nearly 50% odds of hitting the lottery? 

Translation, we’ve got a 50% chance that we’re going to have some geomagnetic activity that may or may not cause satellite interference and communications malfunctions here on earth.   The earth, so delicately balanced also relies on the magnetosphere and ionosphere to protect it from upheaval.  NOAA / Space Weather Prediction Center reassures us all is calm, all is bright, all is all right.

Alerts / Bulletins
Latest Alert: Aug 03 1827 UTC WARNING: Geomagnetic K-index of 4 expected
Last Advisory Bulletin: None in last 7 days.

It would seem likely that if the Earth’s atmospheric magnets are going out of whack so is the Earth, and possibly the cause of an increase in earthquakes and volcanoes.

The scientists will tell you about plate tectonics causing earthquakes.  Most recently is a new theory out of  Purdue University.

Earthquakes, “came from stored stress built up in the Earth’s crust long ago…Our theory links an external climate-driven process, the melting of the ice sheet, and earthquakes…Unfortunately, this stored stress is invisible to us.” via US News & World Report Science at  http://ht.ly/18pBTL

That’s one theory.  No matter, all the Earth’s Observatories should be in ready, set, go, mode to record some impressive atmospheric activity..

We’ve asked  it time and time again if the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP), is a scientific advance of  knowledge or a system of destruction capable of causing earthquakes, tsunami, and otherwise “natural disasters?” https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-patents-arecibo/.  What about EISCAT, SURA and the worlds other large arrays?  Do you think they only receive and not emit?

The Arecibo Observatory is the largest and most sensitive radiotelescope.  It sits atop the seismically active Puerto Rico Trench, and ever so close to Haiti.    You can download data from the Arecibo dual-frequency ASHTECH MicroZ-CGRS GPS receiver and high quality choke-ring antenna.  http://www.naic.edu/aisr/GPSTEC/gpstec.html.   Sadly, it offers no real time data and is only up to releasing the 90th day of the year’s activity. A lot of good that does for now.

What are the volcano’s doing?  The  SI / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report  doesn’t come out until tomorrow.   http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/

Let’s have a look at what our tax dollars are buying at HAARP.

HAARP Fluxgate Magnetometer, August 3, 2010.

The chart above is a running 36 hour plot of the readings taken from the fluxgate magnetometer, built by the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, operating at the HAARP ionospheric observatory in Gakona, Alaska. The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:

  • The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
  • The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
  • The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward

Hmmm, looks like a split in the road between the red and the black.  We have never seen such an anomaly at the same time.  There is only one positive North.  Here something is creating two positives at the same time.

Is that possible?  We are positively confused.

More confusing, shortly after uploading these graphs, lo and behold, another earthquake. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmby.php

Great Seal Of The United States, Front

H.R. 5741 The Universal National Service Bill, also called the Slavery Bill was introduced by Charlie Rangle last month before more of his legal woes came to light by The House Ethics Committee. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_B._Rangel  

The exact description-

To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes. {sic. What other purpose would there be?}

Read H.R. 5741 at http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h5741/show.  Or read the entire bill below that has been  referred to the Committee on Armed Services.

He is the sole sponsor of the bill that amounts to a two year mandatory uniformed military draft or civilian service draft.   I object. 

This is not China and this is not Israel where National military service is mandatory for any non-Arab Israeli citizen over the age of 18, although other exceptions may be made on religious, physical or psychological grounds.  Men serve three years in the IDF, while women serve two. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Defense_Forces

This is, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

The Great Seal of The United States, back view

Rangel took to the floor of the House to reintroduce H.R. 5741, stating, “I have introduced legislation to reinstate the draft and to make it permanent during time of war. It is H.R. 5741, and what this does is to make everyone between the ages of 18 and 42 — whether they’re men or women, whether they’re straight or gay — to have the opportunity to defend this great country whenever the president truly believes that our national security is threatened.”- http://weaselzippers.us/2010/07/28/dem-rep-charlie-rangel-d-persistent-introduces-mandatory-national-service-bill-again/

Rangle first brought the idea up in 2003 when the U.S. was at preparing to invade Iraq, and again in 2004, 2006 and 2007.  Under the guise of National Security and Homeland Defense, the President would have far reaching power into the individuals pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, and of course more government control. 

America it seems is nearly always at war.  From the War on Terror, to Iran and Afghanistan,  yet our voluntary military system works on behalf of the downtrodden and U.S. interests.  It is up to the leaders to provide the leadership to make it work as it has for hundred’s of years. We already have a VOLUNTARY MILITARY, if the government wants to set up VOLUNTARY SERVICE then so be it; NOT A MANDATORY DRAFT!

We could almost understand a bill that would require, that if you are 18 years of age, not in school, do not have a job, and not needed at home, then, and only then would any-sort of a MANDATORY service be required.  Perhaps that is Rangle’s angle, to soften things up a bit in the bill’s final passage. A t least Rangle served in the Army, which is more than our commander-in-chief can say.

Legal and non-legal citizens are currently required to register with Selective Services for men 18-25, not 42!  

Selective Service does not collect any information which would indicate whether or not you are undocumented. You want to protect yourself for future U.S. citizenship and other government benefits and programs by registering with Selective Service. Do it today.

If you are a man ages 18 through 25 and living in the U.S., then you must register with Selective Service. It’s the law. According to law, a man must register with Selective Service within 30 days of his 18th birthday. Selective Service will accept late registrations but not after a man has reached age 26. –http://www.sss.gov/

Just maybe if Selective Services verified if registrants were undocumented, we would know if they were here illegally!  Duh.  Does the Armed Services accept undocumented citizens into the military? We accepted a President with little documentation.

Recruiting standards have been lowered and more people looking for jobs are already turning to the military.  In a report from the Army, a “newly released study on the psychological health of its soldiers, “Health Promotion, Risk Reduction, and Suicide Prevention,” is brutally honest about a growing problem in the ranks. 

The rate of suicide, drug dependence and high-risk behavior among soldiers has been pushing upward in recent years, the Army acknowledged.  Read more: http://www.thenewstribune.com/2010/08/02/1286072/refreshing-military-candor-about.html#ixzz0vSfB1Is2

America remains in a declared, “state of emergency,” from the swine flu pandemic.  As it stands, if this passes- mothers, daughters, fathers and sons will be commissioned into government servitude service disrupting core families, further eroding  jobs, the economy and quite possibly affecting an entire population with mental health issues, say nothing of battlefield injury.  Certainly not to say all servicemen and women experience problems or participate in battlefield operations. 

Suggested FEMA CAMPS

BTW, just where would you house a civilian military?  Could it be all those FEMA camps we’ve been hearing about?  Sarcastically we write -on the plus side that those called into service would not be a drain on Universal Healthcare.  Inductees would be mandatorily vaccinated and medically cared for under the military budget.   They would also not be counted in unemployment levels, screwing the jobs report numbers.  You know, do whatever it takes to cook the books.

Millions of U.S. Citizens Lives Disrupted if H.R. 5741 Passes

Rangle and anyone who co-sponsors this bill needs to read,

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution…

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially abolished and continues to prohibit slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime. It was passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, passed by the House on January 21, 1865, and adopted on December 6, 1865. It was then declared in the proclamation of Secretary of State William H. Seward on December 18 via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/13th_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

In an attempt to yet again alter the Constitution, we are reminded of President Obama’s  challenge to democracy.  He said loud and clear, “It’s a tragedy the Constitution wasn’t radically reinterpreted to force redistribution of wealth for African Americans.”   

Civil War portrait of Abraham Lincoln; in the background is the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, which granted freedom to slaves in states then in rebellion against the Union. Slavery was finally abolished by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution in 1865.

It would be a tragedy to see the Constitution reinterpreted to force military and civilian service for people as this bill is written.  Should  President Obama sign this legislation, President Lincoln will be rolling at the thought that Obama swore his Presidential Oath on his Bible.
