X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle

UPDATE https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2011/03/04/x-37b-space-plane-ready-set-go-for-what/

The X-37B  Orbital Test Vehicle also referred to as the Advanced Technology Demonstrator  is set for launch tonight, April 22, 2010. It will be taken aloft by The Atlas V in the 501 vehicle configuration with a five-meter fairing, no solid rocket boosters and a single-engine Centaur upper stage from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Launch Complex 41. The planned liftoff time is 7:52 p.m. and the launch window will extend through 8:01 p.m.

The X-37B OTV is not your everyday launch.  First of all, this is not a NASA program, but a U.S. government launch that is cloaked in secrecy.   Shuttle Atlantis only this morning has reached its seaside perch on launch pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center.  It is targeted for a six crew, May 14 launch to the International Space Station. http://flametrench.flatoday.net/

 The X-37 program, while originally a NASA initiative, is now led by Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office officials, which expedite development and fielding of select Defense Department combat support and weapons systems. AFRCO officials are currently working on the X-37B program, building upon early development and testing conducted by officials from NASA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the Air Force Research Laboratory. http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123199790 

Angie Blair, an Air Force spokeswoman for the project added, “that the X-37B will be operated by contractors under the direction of Air Force Space Command’s 3rd Space Experimentation Squadron.”  

The Denver Post http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_14924089?source=rss said the launch was being done by the Centennial-based United Launch Alliance.  This will be United Launch Alliance’s third launch of the year and the 21st Atlas V launch in program history. http://www.ulalaunch.com/site/.

    

Featured above is one of, “Trevor Paglen’s “I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have to Be Destroyed By Me: Emblems From the Pentagon’s Black World.” Paglen, an “artist, writer and experimental geographer,” has assembled about 40 colorful patch insignia from secret, military “black” programs that are hardly ever discussed in public… Almost every patch has a Latin phrase at the bottom, e.g. Semper en Obscurus, or “Always in the Dark,” the motto of the Air Force’s Special Projects Office.http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/08/opinion/08iht-edbeam.1.9872586.html     

On this AFRCO patch, ” The Latin at the bottom of the patch translates as “Doing God’s work with other people’s money.” The image is part of the http://www.naderlibrary.com/index.htm.    

This patch is from the Phillips Laboratory Military Spaceplane Technology (MiST) Program Office at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. The original version of this patch featured an "X-Wing" fighter from Star Wars.

The Air Force interest in military spaceplanes stretches back nearly 40 years from the first Aerospaceplane program and Dyna-Soar/X-20 program (late 1950s-early 1960s); to the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization’s Single-Stage Rocket Technology program that built the Delta Clipper-Experimental (DC-X) experimental reusable spaceplane.  http://www.fas.org/spp/military/program/launch/msp.htm      

From a 1999 Report via http://www.globalsecurity.org/space/library/report/1999/99-154.htm   “The Air Force must quickly develop doctrine and command relationships designed to maximize the contributions routine space access brings to the joint warfighter. Doctrinal constructs for the effective use of USAF expeditionary aerospace power will help ensure our nation maintains its lead as the preeminent aerospace power. This paper specifically uses the near-future advent of Reusable Launch Vehicles and their implications for an Expeditionary Air Force as an illustration of how future Joint Force Commanders may effectively bring aerospace power to bear in the battlespace as a combined, synergistic whole.”    

Basically, 11 years later America is about to officially weaponize space, or should we say at least for the first time, admitting it.    

The X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle will provide a flexible space test platform to conduct various experiments and allow satellite sensors, subsystems, components and associated technology to be efficiently transported to and from the space environment where it will need to function. Read the X-37B fact sheet.  The X-37B will also prove new technology and components before they are committed to operational satellites.    

 “The X-37B is an important step in the effort to make space access more routine, affordable, and responsive,” Mr. Gary Payton, Air Force Under Secretary for Space Programs, said. “The technologies and concepts of employment that are proven by the Orbital Test Vehicle will be folded into development programs that will provide capabilities for our warfighters in the future. http://www.dodlive.mil/index.php/2010/04/air-force-bloggers-roundtable-air-force-set-to-launch-first-x-37b-orbital-test-vehicle/    

Just how important could the X-37B in defending our nation? 

Columnist Charles Krauthammer reiterates President Obama lackluster nuclear policy at WaPo, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/04/08/AR2010040804507.html–    

Under President Obama’s new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is “in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT),” explained Gates, then “the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.”    

Besides our horrible policy on deterrence, officials are warning that the U.S. is being subject to increasing threats.    

WASHINGTON, April 20, 2010 – Ballistic missiles are an increasing threat to the United States, and the Defense Department must keep up with them, the deputy undersecretary of defense for policy said today. James N. Miller, speaking about the department’s Nuclear Posture Review before the Senate Armed Services Committee, said several nations are developing nuclear, chemical or biological warheads for their missiles.    

The threat to the U.S. homeland is most acute from states such as North Korea and Iran, Miller said. “Neither has yet acquired ICBMs that could reach the United States, but both are working to acquire and/or develop long-range ballistic missile capabilities – including space-launched vehicles – which include many of the necessary technologies,” he said.    

“The exploration and use of outer space … shall be for peaceful purposes and shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interest of all countries, irrespective of their degree of economic or scientific development. …prevention of an arms race in outer space would avert a grave danger for international peace and security Prevention of an arms race in outer space, United Nations General Assembly Resolution, A/RES/55/32, January 2001. (PDF Document)  

Whether we are militarizing space for peaceful purposes, attack purposes or economic purposes; the X-37B is set for blastoff  today, which in total irony is designated Earth Day.

Absolutely freaking amazing.  People have found a way to conclude that the current cold affecting most of America is due to global warming.   It is Winter, idiots.  Contrary to fact that global temperatures have been steadily cooling since the 1940’s, environmentalists have created a whole industry centered around the lie that mankind has some influence on weather.  

As far as what has been reported to the public, we humans have no way to decrease or increase the planet’s temperature.  Barely a footnote in the media,  is all the research that has been underway for years to, in fact- change the weather. 

“The US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use. Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined’.http://ppjg.wordpress.com/2008/03/04/haarpintentional-weather-manipulations/ 

I find it much more likely indeed that, “The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), is an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative ‘Star Wars’. ” 

Established in 1992, HAARP, based in Gokona, Alaska, is an array of high-powered antennas that transmit, through high-frequency radio waves, massive amounts of energy into the ionosphere (the upper layer of the atmosphere). Their construction was funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).  Operated jointly by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating ‘controlled local modifications of the ionosphere’. According to  its official website, http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/  There is also an interesting link to an article on Weather Warfare by Michel Chossudovsky, The Ecologist, December 2007  that merits a glance at http://globalresearch.ca/articles/haarpecologist.pdf.

 

 

While we expect Sarah Palin’s Alaska to be cold http://www.mountainweather.com/alaska.htm  “Extreme temperatures — in Johnson’s case about 60 below zero — call for extreme measures in a statewide cold snap so frigid that temperatures have grounded planes, disabled cars, frozen water pipes and even canceled several championship cross country ski races.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090108/ap_on_re_us/alaska_extreme_cold

We’ve seen snow in Las Vegas and even in Hawaii this Winter.  The odds makers must be realigning statistics that it will happen again based on reports from the National Climatic Data Center.  This will be America’s coldest year since 1997, thanks to La Niña and precipitation in the central and eastern states.   Throw in the Sun’s Solar quiet and we see another reason for global cooling- not global warming. Sunspots and solar radiation are approaching  the minimum in the Sun’s cycle, corresponding with lower Earth temperatures.  National Snow and Ice Data Center has found that the extent of Artic sea ice has  expanded by 13.2 percent over last year.  This 270,000 sq mile  growth in Arctic sea ice is just slightly larger than Texas’s 268,820 square miles. http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NGYzMzA2MzEzZTI4YjAxOTZhMGY4N2YwOTVmZWIzOTg=

Yet , we have our next President- Obama -about to spend millions of our tax dollars to inhibit climate change.  “Few challenges facing America – and the world – are more urgent than combating climate change. The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear…  said Obama at http://change.gov/newsroom/entry/president_elect_obama_promises_new_chapter_on_climate_change/  Maligned facts got us into the Iraq war and choosing to believe these facts as truth, is equally reprehensible.

One small bright spot in this political climate of change is that Al Gore will not have an official part in the next administration.   Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for climate change is among the nation’s worst energy hogs. Al’s carbon footprint was twenty times that of the average American household http://tennesseepolicy.org/main/article.php?article_id=764

Obama does not fair any better at preserving climate change with his inauguration, The Institute for Liberty has created a carbon footprint estimate for the Obama inauguration itself and estimates more than 500 million pounds of CO2 will be released during the four-day inaugural but goes farther to say that study isn’t entirely accurate. “We haven’t looked at the methane or CO2 that will be expended by people standing on the mall.”

The Institute goes on to say, ” they should not have to be lectured — or regulated or taxed — by officials who appear, at best, to conveniently forget their own rhetoric when celebrating their success.”  http://thechillingeffect.org/wp-content/themes/paalam-11/CarbonBigfoot.pdf.  Um- no one should be lectured, taxed or regulated by the government into buying deadly mercury filled light bulbs or any other product that supports a greener world- unless of course they want to. 

 

Who knew the amount of  hot air coming from Obama supporters on the Mall in D.C for the inauguration, could in fact, be precipitous to altering the climate.  Political climate yes, weather climate? 

I am ROFLMFAO, farting, freezing, watching the snow fly with my old fashioned, mercury free light bulbs on.  Oh yeah, I am burning through the BTU’s with the furnace on too.
