What’s The Mystery About North Korea’s Missile Fail?

As I’m sure you all know by now, North Korea’s latest firecracker launch was an abject failure. Nothing new there.

But…..

What’s all this about “mystery” and “unknown type of missile”.

And Trump “uncharacteristically quiet”.

Now, the first thought that occurs to me when each of these launches fails, is that the US has various exotic (and mostly clandestine) platforms, some of them space based, that can easily fry a missile’s guidance system or destroy it on launch or in the early stages after launch.

Get Ready For A War In Space, Says US Military.

The second thought is: Sabotage. Chinese military-industrial companies are supposedly supplying NK with parts and expertise. The Chinese government seems to be either complicit, or unawares. Or, are China supplying dud parts and advice deliberately, to keep Kim Jong from actually ever succeeding. After all, it would seem among all the major players, China appear to be the voice of reason.

North Korean “Rocket Boost” From Chinese Businesses

This is purely my own speculation, feel free to give your own opinions or intel.

 

A North Korean missile has exploded during launch, a high-profile failure that comes as a powerful US aircraft supercarrier approaches the Korean Peninsula in a show of force.

It wasn’t immediately clear what kind of missile was test-fired from the east coast city of Sinpo today but the failure will sting in Pyongyang because it comes a day after one of the biggest North Korean propaganda events of the year- celebrations of the 105th birthday of late North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, the current leader’s grandfather.

The North’s test firing can be seen as a message of defiance to the Trump administration in Washington, coming as it does on the day US Vice President Mike Pence is set to arrive in Seoul for talks on North Korea.

President Donald Trump was uncharacteristically quiet about the failed launch. In a statement, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Trump and his military team “are aware of North Korea’s most recent unsuccessful missile launch. The president has no further comment.”

Got Your Bunker Ready?

Trump, The NWO, And The Syria Situation: For What It’s Worth…..

….This Is My Take On The Situation:

America had a choice. That is, unless you believe the “choice” is nothing but a charade. But, charades and hacking accusations aside, the People chose.

Do you choose the same old, same old, in the form of the apparently psychopathic Hillary, who wants to bomb the crap out of Syria, or do you put your money on Trump?

Some voted for him because he’s perceived as having a different focus, concentrating on “Making America Great Again”. Others simply because the former option was too horrible to contemplate.

Either way, America voted for change. They picked the outsider, the showman. Possibly the most controversial president in history. Anything but Hillary, please!

Right now, it looks like maybe they’ve got the same old same old in a different wrapper.

How the hell did it come to this?

I’ve always had a cautious attitude with Trump; “Wait and see”. Call me a fence sitter, but I don’t have a crystal ball, and the phrase “if it seems too good to be true….” springs to mind.

Back in the early 1990’s, George Bush Senior spoke openly about the New World Order. He made it explicitly clear that the arrival of the NWO was inevitable. And now we are seeing it take shape. Whether it be the hordes of refugees, desparate families in their hordes fleeing to the West like pieces on the NWO chessboard, or the less obvious but nevertheless visible movement of the wealthy 1% buying up bolt holes in New Zealand (The Gateway To Antarctica) and other perceived places of safety. Clearly the shit is hitting the fan. And clearly this was expected, because it was planned and orchestrated.

The current situation in Syria was part of the long term plan, set in concrete years, maybe even decades ago. Trump or no Trump, it was going to happen. Hillary would have gone along with the plot gleefully; Trump somewhat less so. I honestly believe Trump would rather focus on building his wall and creating jobs for American workers, but Trump isn’t a dictator, he’s a president, a cog in the machine. And if the cog doesn’t mesh, the Engineers will fix it.

Images and videos of dying children gasping for breath. Corpses piled up. Thanks to the internet there’s no hiding the horror of it. The kind of imagery that stirs up the public like nothing else. As a parent myself I’m not immune to it. Part of you looks for anything that says this might not be real: A false flag. A hoax. But no, I think this really happened.

So whose to blame? We saw the jets, but did they drop sarin gas on those people? Did the rebels have stashes of gas that Assad’s forces unwittingly bombed?

Speculation and finger pointing is off the scale. What evidence do we have of what really happened, who is actually to blame?

Diversion. Smoke and mirrors. The Call them the NWO, the Illuminati, The Elite, whatever. Chaos and deception is their calling card.

You know who is to blame for this. Not Assad, not Putin, not Trump. Not even Hillary or Obama.

Think higher. Look up, wake up.  Somewhere…over the rainbow……

Follow the Yellow Brick Road, but don’t expect to find a real wizard. Just an old man behind a curtain pulling levers.

Et Pluribus Uno: The New World Order is upon us.

News You Won’t Hear

This Is The Voice Of The One Percent.

There is a humanitarian crisis looming, and we are deeply concerned and remorseful.

Image result for somalia crisis 17

We understand that $6 billion in aid is urgently required .

Since we have trillions stashed away in tax havens, we wouldn’t even notice the loss of this insignificant sum of money.

In fact it’s less than what we should have payed in taxes by a considerable margin.

We have therefore collectively decided  to donate this sum to humanitarian aid in the required areas immediately through the appropriate channels.

It’s the least we could do.

And that’s today’s news that wasn’t.

Defying Molech

 

 

In celebration of Women’s Day, a bronze statue of a little girl stands defiantly and proudly before the charging bull of Wall Street. To those of us who understand the real meaning of the bronze bull, this image has special significance most of populace are blissfully unaware of. Nevertheless, the sculpture has proved a major attraction and successfully resonated with the crowds.

I think it is a wonderful image.

Infowars And Natural News “Under Attack”

There is a story going viral right now that potentially affects all alternative media. I’ll let Jon Rappoport do the explaining:

 

Breaking: Infowars and Natural News under attack

by Jon Rappoport

February 22, 2017

Alex Jones’ infowars.com and Mike Adams’ naturalnews.com are both under attack.

Infowars has been dropped by its ad platform provider — adroll.com, which spreads ads for Infowars products to many, many media outlets. Last year, that ad operation accounted for more than $3 million in sales for Infowars.

Natural News has been “delisted” by Google. Google appears to have wiped out 140,000 pages of listings for Mike’s website. I just typed in “natural news” at Google and what came up was something different, natural.news — another tiny site owned by Mike, not naturalnews.com, as the top listing.

The Empire is striking back. This isn’t debate or discussion or even baseless accusation. This is war by attrition. And censorship.

This is part of the elite mantra: if we don’t like it, wipe it out.

If you’ve been awake for the past year, you’ve seen an escalation, along many fronts, of the so-called “Progressive” forces to censor what they don’t want to read or hear.

It’s taken a new turn. They want to take down key independent media outlets.

They want to narrow down the “information superhighway” to a one-lane road that runs directly into their headquarters, where all the big-time fake news is dispensed, every day, to the hypnotized masses.

Don’t let them win. At the very least, take the independent news you judge is vitally important and spread it out far and wide.

Finally, for now, a message to those individuals who, by work and sweat and intelligence, by their own efforts, have built and created independent news sites:

WHATEVER DIFFERENCES YOU MAY HAVE HAD, FROM TIME TO TIME, WITH ONE ANOTHER, THIS IS BIGGER THAN THAT. MUCH BIGGER. THIS IS ABOUT CENSORSHIP OF FREE SPEECH. THIS IS ABOUT A WAR AGAINST THE FREEDOMS WE HOLD DEAR, THE FREEDOMS THAT MEAN THE MOST WHEN THEY ARE UNDER ATTACK. DEFEND EACH OTHER.

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/

 

Naturally there every reaction out there from hysteria, to a satisfied smugness from the sceptics.

My personal reaction is to stay calm and see how this plays out over the next few days. I smell a “wheels within wheels” plot of some sort. A trap perhaps? Are these sites being targeted in order to generate panic? If so I’m not taking the bait.

I’ll continue fighting for freedom of choice and freedom of speech in a calm and rational manner, and monitor the situation.

There are many ways to fight a war. Know thine enemy, and as the British say, Keep Calm And Carry On.

Martin.

UPDATE, 27 FEB.

“Step Away From The Fence And Put Away The Camera!”

Tuesday afternoon, heading into work, the drive takes me past the airport. I always glance in the direction of the US Antarctic Op. hangars to see what’s there. Usually a C17 Globemaster or an occasional C 130 Hercules. Last week the NASA DC 8 was visible.

But Tuesday? “Holy Crap!” I muttered, reached for my camera….curses! Left it at home again. I count two C17s and six C 130-Ts (The USAF ones with distinctive orange tail), and a big grey tail fin I didn’t recognise. That evening I ID’d it as an RNZAF 757-200, used for shuttling scientists and dignitaries around in comfort.

Yesterday, Wednesday 22 Feb, I was armed and ready. Took the right turn around the back road to airport, straight past the front fence of the base, parked up in the Antarctic Centre (public tourist attraction), and sprinted back up the road.

The two C17s were gone, but everything else was there, so I started snapping pics. As I approached the security gate and stood in the driveway trying to get a good shot, the security guard came out. He wasn’t smiling. I casually start wandering the other way, and see another dayglo vest and security tag emerge from a hangar and begin striding purposefully in my direction (see third pic. pic below). I grin and wave innocently, and back away to the other side of the road. The fun’s over and I’m late for work.

My supervisor asks what the holdup was? “Oh, just nearly got arrested by the USAF” I say casually. “Oh, nothing unusual for you then” he says shaking his head slowly.

It’s nearly end of the summer at the Ice, and these C130s are probably migrating northwards. Maybe they will investigate the nuclear incident that just happened in the Arctic?

Enjoy the pics guys!

…and please forgive the delay in reporting this, it’s uncomfortably close to home!

 

I’ll update this item as information comes together, but those familiar with the 2011 quake will get a distinct feeling of déjà vu.

And of course the US Coast Guard just happened to be hanging around at the right place and time to assist (they were on their way to Antarctica would you believe?)

More to come….
