Just because America is in trouble doesn't affect us here in Aussie land.

Because of the Terrorists on 911 all the Wars and loss of basic Civil Liberty's are justified. 

If 911 was an inside job then all we have done and has been done in our name would be wrong and our Governments would be complicit in Crimes Against Humanity. 

If we stand by and say nothing then we too are complicit and something terribly wrong is and has been happening, its the last day of 2010. We have a little time left to change course. 

This is a War for our Spirit, those who serve themselves seek to enslave and depopulate the Earth. On the other side is those who would act in the free action of Service to Others.

We can expect perhaps 15% of the population to awaken to these realititys, all the evil is performed in plain sight. Hitler wrote Mien   Kaump and described everything he was going to do and how.

Every War of the last Century and this one has been manipulated, including the Cold War. The War of Terror is no different.

Good luck with 2011, weaker people than you need your help, look for the 15%, never get into an argument with a fool.

Some Hope Yet

Its Mathematically inevitable the BIGPISA economies will fall apart (Britain, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Iceland,Spain, America ) . The inevitable result of printing FIAT Money an experiment in currency that began in earnest in 1977 when Nixon removed the Gold Standard.

Today we are entering the next Decade of the 21st Century, the other side of the equation is the BRIC, Brazil, Russia, India and China. The past year has seen agreements between these countries to escape the US $ and the other debt ridden countries that will fall when the US does.

China was responsible for the 'mystery' Missile launch some weeks ago off the US coast. I would also suggest that advanced technology recovered from UFO crashes and agreements with outside entities; is not exclusive to the USA and its allies.

One  Wissel Blower has stated that in the death bed statements of a very senior Globalist  / Elitist NWO boss, some warning signs were given as to what will happen prior to the end of the American Empire.

The price of Oil will climb to $150 to $200 a Barrel over a 6 to 8 month time and the US Dollar would slide down in value as measured by the index. Its presently at .8076 and has been hovering at .79 and even .78 when it starts to plummet ..Game Over.

On the hopeful side when the "Obstruction" (America & Friends) is removed China will release some of the advanced Energy sources derived from the Zero Point Field can be used to repair the Planet and wean us of the Oil addiction.  Full Disclosure of the UFO interaction and the real history of our Civilization and its Religions will be revealed.

All the Ponzi scheme debt (1.8 Quadrillion Dollars) will be wiped out as worthless paper and the perpetrators of the greatest Fraud ever committed will be brought to some Justice.

The following link will take you to an Mp3 file worth listening to, to much of the dark material we see everyday, the decent of America and Britain into Police States is very disturbing if you are awake and not a Beer drenched  Sports / TV Zombie.

Travel to USA ? Be Ready For Sexual Assault or X Ray Blasts

The TSA , America's agency 'trusted' to secure Americans from the evils of men in Turbins . To travel by air in the good old USA you will have to subject yourself to the "Naked Body Scanner" a 'lower powered X Ray. (We all know the safe level for Radiation? ZERO.

Refuse to walk through the hot box and you will be given a 'Hand Search' this involves being groped on the private parts, children included and its usually a majority of attractive women that are selected for the full treatment by Male TSA workers.

Now imagine a Male groping your child, it sounds outragous and unbelievable but thats the truth. The National "Opt Out Day" timed for the Thanksgiving holiday  was to be a protest. The TSA decided the Terrorist threat was somehow lessened and the body scanners and Grope Police were stood down for 3 days.

What is happening in America? Its called Fascism and its coming eventually to a town near you. Think Australia is Immune, check out what our Government already has the power to do to any of under the unsellable of "Terrorist"  or "Security" your chance of dying in a Terror attack is less than being struck by Lightning.

Google is now exercising its power and shutting search trends down for un-cooperative  Constitutionalists. People who make noise about the errosion of Liberty in America. Its eroding like ice under a hot shower.

PrisonPlanet.com Censored and Watched by Homeland Security?

According to their website, PrisonPlanet.com has been censored by Google and Homeland Security. The website claims to be a freedom of speech political reporting outlet, though many often question the validity of their stories.

With the whole wikileaks fiasco erupting lately and many torrent websites being shut down by Homeland Security for file sharing, people are wondering a lot about censorship and government involvement in search engines and other online website.

PrisonPlanet.com reports that "A Freedom of Information Act request filed by former Congressman Bob Barr seeks to discover whether the Department of Homeland Security has been keeping tabs on the Drudge Report and other prominent media outlets who have spearheaded a nationwide revolt against invasive TSA airport security measures."

We're certain that Google is often under immense pressure from the government and are surely trying to keep certain sites in check as asked to. Is this censorship? Probably, but then again, the internet laws are a bit blurred in many areas.

Travel to anywhere but America, its a mess and a nightmare unfolding.

Child Protection, 250,000 Children Taken every Year


Government Seizes Newborn Baby Over Political Beliefs Of Parents

Paul Joseph Watson
October 8, 2010

A newborn baby was ripped from its mother’s arms by officials from the New Hampshire Division of Family Child Services accompanied by police after authorities cited the parents’ association with the Oath Keepers organization as one of the primary reasons for the snatch, heralding a shocking new level of persecution where Americans’ political beliefs are now being used by the state to kidnap children.

What was supposed to be one of the most joyous occasions of their lives turned into a nightmare for John Irish and Stephanie Janvrin, after they were told by The Director of Security and the Head Nurse at Concord Hospital that their baby would be taken to be checked by the hospital pediatrician.

“They lied to us – they got us to allow them to take our daughter under false pretenses, we didn’t even have a choice,” said Irish.
When Irish tried to stop his daughter being taken, the baby was immediately wheeled out in a bassinet, after which Irish saw three men in suits accompanied by uniformed police officers as well as detectives and social workers. who proceeded to try to search Irish.

“They forced me to stand up, held my hands behind my back and patted me down,” said Irish, before police told him they were taking the baby.

“My fiancé didn’t even get any time to bond with the baby – they came in and stole our child,” said Irish. The parents were given a couple of minutes with their daughter before being forced by police to leave the hospital. Irish was subsequently told that a “security officer” would follow his every move.

The affidavit in support of the decision to take the child, which has been verified by Oath Keepers, states, “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers,” confirming that political beliefs were, amongst other reasons, one of the primary factors behind the snatching of the baby.

Even if the additional reasons cited in the affidavit, which are unproven at this time, could be considered sufficient reason for the state to take the baby, the fact that political affiliations were even mentioned is a frightening indictment of how far the government’s war on Americans who dissent against authority has advanced.

 “Regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody.” writes Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes. “Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. Thus, it serves to chill the speech of all of us, in any group we belong to that “officials” may not approve of. Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on “the list” and then child protective services might come take your kids.”
The parents were not even full members of the Oath Keepers organization, they were merely on a discussion list related to the group. This makes the case even more shocking – you don’t even have to be directly associated with a group that the government deems to be a “militia” to have your baby stolen – you merely have to be involved in online discussions of issues relating to the constitution and freedom in America.

Irish’s father’s web page clearly states that he supports a “NON-violent, law abiding gathering of like minded Patriots,” and that he is “AGAINST ANY acts of violence or illegal activity.”
“The Sons of Liberty Riders does not endorse or tolerate radical, extreme, violent or racial postings,” states the website.
The Oath Keepers organization is not a “militia,” as the affidavit claims, it is merely a loose network of current and former military and law enforcement professionals who have sworn not to obey unconstitutional orders such as gun confiscation, warrantless searches and mass internment of Americans. The group is committed to non-violence.

If this case is allowed to stand it opens up a hellish future for free speech and political discourse in America. If parents live in fear of having their children stolen by the state because they criticize the government, the United States can rank itself amongst the worst dictatorships in history who invoked the threat of taking people’s children if they spoke out against tyranny.

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes has announced that a legal defense fund will be created to help Irish, and that the organization, “will actively pursue aggressive legal remedy and redress.”

“We will assist in locating competent local legal counsel in New Hampshire and additional expert legal counsel from around the country in First Amendment and child custody law,” wrote Stewart on the Oath Keepers website.

“There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of association, no freedom to even open your mouth and “speak truth to power,” no freedom AT ALL, if your children can be black bagged and stolen from you because of your political speech and associations — because you simply dare to express your love of country, and dare to express your solidarity and fellowship with other citizens and with active duty and retired military and police who simply pledge to honor their oath and obey the Constitution. It was to prevent just such outrageous content based persecution of political dissidents that our First Amendment was written.”

We join with the Oath Keepers organization in asking people to flood the relevant organizations with calls and emails demanding the release of the baby. Please be polite.

News and commentary from the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform concerning child abuse, child welfare, foster care, and family preservation.

State investigators say the husband of former state Senator Nancy Schaefer shot his wife before turning the gun on himself. The couple’s bodies were found in their north Georgia home Friday. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation conducted autopsies on the Schaefer’s  

—investigators say all evidence points to the deaths as a murder-suicide. The bodies of Nancy and Bruce Schaefer, 73 and 74 years old respectively, were found by their daughter at the couple’s home in Clarkesville. Nancy Schaefer was a two-term state Senator representing Georgia’s 50th district. She lost her seat in 2008. Schaefer was also a candidate for mayor of Atlanta, 
Georgia lieutenant governor and governor of the state.
The corporate media does not bother to mention that
Schaefer exposed the abuses of CPS and the international child sex slavery ring.

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show last May, Schaefer detailed how CPS is involved in child trafficking rings (see video below). After watching Schaefer’s interview with Jones, if you think Schaefer was involved in a suicide pact with her husband, you may also be interested in a famous bridge for sale in Brooklyn.

Dept of DUH: Big new study finds CPS doesn’t work

Brace yourselves: this is bound to come as a shock. A big new academic study, published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine finds that when you send a child protective services investigator into a home where there’s already a lot of stress simply because the family is poor and then pull the children aside and ask traumatic questions, possibly throw in a stripsearch, and inspect every nook and cranny of the home to see if it passes some caseworker’s white glove test – it doesn’t make things better, and sometimes makes things worse.

They had to do a study to figure this out? In fact, as I told Time magazine’s Healthland Blog, this study simply confirms what NCCPR has been saying for years: Child Protective Services won’t be effective until it becomes Child Poverty Services.
But contrary to what one of the study authors suggested this morning on WNYC public radio, that doesn’t mean you have to eliminate poverty to eliminate child maltreatment – though whoever does the first will come closer than anyone else to doing the second. 

You can make enormous strides simply by ameliorating the worst effects of poverty. Some examples are in our publication Thirteen Ways to do Child Welfare Right. (The WNYC interview is worth listening to for the comments of the other guest, Mike Arsham, executive director of New York’s Child Welfare Organizing Project.)

Of course, the scenario I described above in which the investigator interrogates, stripsearches and then goes away, is far from the worst that CPS can do.

In other cases, the parents will be forced to jump through a series of hoops either to keep their children with them or to get them back. It’s almost always a cookie-cutter “service plan” almost always requiring lots and lots of “counseling” and “parent education” while the actual problems of poverty are ignored. So the “services” only add more burdens to this family.

At worst, of course, the caseworker leaves with the child, throwing that child into foster care, and probably doing at a minimum, serious psychological damage to that child. Then, if the child is returned, the family has to heal from this, while it is still just as poor and just as stressed out as it was in the first place.

So why, exactly, is anyone surprised that this doesn’t work? It is a testament to the love and resilience in many poor families that only one of the many variables measured in this study got worse.


One of the more feeble attempts to defend CPS came from one Janice Warren, DSW
at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, who told MedPage Today:

“Many children are taken out of very dangerous living situations permanently based upon investigations conducted by CPS. CPS serves an essential front line of protection for the most vulnerable children in our society,”

In fact, very few of the 250,000 children taken from their parents every year are taken from “very dangerous living situations.”

That is clear from the results of many other studies, most notably two that compared more than 15,000 typical cases seen by CPS workers. Those studies found that children left in their own homes typically fared better even than comparably-maltreated children placed in foster care. That was true even when CPS agencies provided families with little or no help.

In other words, when CPS traumatizes a family and then goes away, it doesn’t do any good. When CPS traumatizes a family and compounds the trauma with needless foster care, CPS goes from doing no good to doing a great deal of harm.

That doesn’t mean no child ever should be taken from his parents; it doesn’t even mean CPS should be abolished. We need an agency to protect the relatively few children in real danger. Rather it means that foster care is an extremely toxic intervention that must be used sparingly and in very small doses.

It also means that the threshold for initiating an investigation should be higher than an anonymous call to a child protective hotline. After all, if a big study of the fire department found that, after they left a house, it almost always still was on fire and sometimes the fire was worse, wouldn’t we at least try to do more to curb false alarms?

From the legislative desk of Senator Nancy Schaefer 50th District of Georgia
November 16, 2007

BY: Nancy Schaefer
Senator, 50th District

My introduction into child protective service cases was due to a grandmother in an adjoining state who called me with her tragic story. Her two granddaughters had been taken from her daughter who lived in my district. Her daughter was told wrongly that if she wanted to see her children again she should sign a paper and give up her children. Frightened and young, the daughter did. I have since discovered that parents are often threatened into cooperation of permanent separation of their children.

The children were taken to another county and placed in foster care. The foster parents were told wrongly that they could adopt the children. The grandmother then jumped through every hoop known to man in order to get her granddaughters. When the case finally came to court it was made evident by one of the foster parents children that the foster parents had, at any given time, 18 foster children and that the foster mother had an inappropriate relationship with the caseworker.

In the courtroom, the juvenile judge, acted as though she was shocked and said the two girls would be removed quickly. They were not removed. Finally, after much pressure being applied to the Department of Family and Children Services of Georgia (DFCS), the children were driven to South Georgia to meet their grandmother who gladly drove to meet them. After being with their grandmother two or three days, the judge, quite out of the blue, wrote up a new order to send the girls to their father, who previously had no interest in the case and who lived on the West Coast. The father was in adult entertainment. His girlfriend worked as an escort and his brother, who also worked in the business, had a sexual charge brought against him.

Within a couple of days the father was knocking on the grandmother door and took the girls kicking and screaming to California.

The father developed an unusual relationship with the former foster parents and soon moved back to the southeast, and the foster parents began driving to the fathers residence and picking up the little girls for visits. The oldest child had told her mother and grandmother on two different occasions that the foster father molested her.

To this day after five years, this loving, caring blood relative grandmother does not even have visitation privileges with the children. The little girls are in my opinion permanently traumatized and the young mother of the girls was so traumatized with shock when the girls were first removed from her that she has not recovered.

Throughout this case and through the process of dealing with multiple other mismanaged cases of the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS), I have worked with other desperate parents and children across the state because they have no rights and no one with whom to turn. I have witnessed ruthless behavior from many caseworkers, social workers, investigators, lawyers, judges, therapists, and others such as those who “pick up” the children. I have been stunned by what I have seen and heard from victims all over the sta te of Georgia.

In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned of the dangers.

The Department of Child Protective Services, known as the Department of Family and Children Service (DFCS) in Georgia and other titles in other states, has become a protected empire€ built on taking children and separating families. This is not to say that there are not those children who do need to be removed from wretched situations and need protection. This report is concerned with the children and parents caught up in “legal kidnapping,” ineffective policies, and DFCS who do does not remove a child or children when a child is enduring torment and abuse. (See Exhibit A and Exhibit B)

In one county in my District, I arranged a meeting for thirty-seven families to speak freely and without fear. These poor parents and grandparents spoke of their painful, heart wrenching encounters with DFCS. Their suffering was overwhelming. They wept and cried. Some did not know where their children were and had not seen them in years. I had witnessed the “Gestapo” at work and I witnessed the deceitful conditions under which children were taken in the middle of the night, out of hospitals, off of school uses, and out of homes. In one county a private drug testing business was operating within the DFCS department that required many, many drug tests from parents and individuals for profit. In another county children were not removed when they were enduring the worst possible abuse. 

Due to being exposed, several employees in a particular DFCS office were fired. However, they have now been rehired either in neighboring counties or in the same county again. According to the calls I am now receiving, the conditions in that county are returning to the same practices that they had before the light was shown on their deeds. Having worked with probably 300 cases statewide, I am convinced there is no responsibility and no accountability in the system.

I have come to the conclusion:

· that poor parents often times are targeted to lose their children because they do not have the where-with-all to hire lawyers and fight the system. Being poor does not mean you are not a good parent or that you do not love your child, or that your child should be removed and placed with strangers;

· that all parents are capable of making mistakes and that making a mistake does not mean your children are always to be removed from the home. Even if the home is not perfect, it is home; and that’s where a child is the safest and where he or she wants to be, with family;

· that parenting classes, anger management classes, counseling referrals, therapy classes and on and on are demanded of parents with no compassion by the system even while they are at work and while their children are separated from them. This can take months or even years and it emotionally devastates both children and parents. Parents are victimized by “the system that makes a profit for holding children longer and bonuses for not returning children;

· that caseworkers and social workers are oftentimes guilty of fraud. They withhold evidence. They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights. However, when charges are made against them, the charges are ignored;

· that the separation of families is growing as a business because local governments have grown accustomed to having taxpayer dollars to balance their ever-expanding budgets;

· that Child Protective Service and Juvenile Court can always hide behind a confidentiality clause in order to protect their decisions and keep the funds flowing. There should be open records and “court watches”! Look who is being paid! 

There are state employees, lawyers, court investigators, court personnel, and judges. There are psychologists, and psychiatrists, counselors, caseworkers, therapists, foster parents, adoptive parents, and on and on. All are looking to the children in state custody to provide job security. Parents do not realize that social workers are the glue that holds “the system” together that funds the court, the child’s attorney, and the multiple other jobs including DFCS’s attorney.

· that The Adoption and the Safe Families Act, set in motion by President Bill Clinton, offered cash “bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the adoption incentive bonuses local child protective services need more children. They must have merchandise (children) that sell and you must have plenty of them so the buyer can choose. Some counties are known to give a $4,000 bonus for each child adopted and an additional $2,000 for a “special needs” child. 

Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing;

· that there is double dipping. The funding continues as long as the child is out of the home. When a child in foster care is placed with a new family then “adoption bonus funds” are available. When a child is placed in a mental health facility and is on 16 drugs per day, like two children of a constituent of mine, more funds are involved;

· that there are no financial resources and no real drive to unite a family and help keep them together;

· that the incentive for social workers to return children to their parents quickly after taking them has disappeared and who in protective services will step up to the plate and say, “This must end! No one, because they are all in the system together and a system with no leader and no clear policies will always fail the children. Look at the waste in government that is forced upon the tax payer;

· that the “Policy Manuel” is considered “the last word” for DFCS. However, it is too long, too confusing, poorly written and does not take the law into consideration;

· that if the lives of children were improved by removing them from their homes, there might be a greater need for protective services, but today all children are not always safer. Children, of whom I am aware, have been raped and impregnated in foster care and the head of a Foster Parents Association in my District was recently arrested because of child molestation;

· that some parents are even told if they want to see their children or grandchildren, they must divorce their spouse. Many, who are under privileged, feeling they have no option, will divorce and then just continue to live together. This is an anti-family policy, but parents will do anything to get their children home with them.

· fathers, (non-custodial parents) I must add, are oftentimes treated as criminals without access to their own children and have child support payments strangling the very life out of them;

· that the Foster Parents Bill of Rights does not bring out that a foster parent is there only to care for a child until the child can be returned home. Many Foster Parents today use the Foster Parent Bill of Rights to hire a lawyer and seek to adopt the child from the real parents, who are desperately trying to get their child home and out of the system;

· that tax dollars are being used to keep this gigantic system afloat, yet the victims,
parents, grandparents, guardians and especially the children, are charged for the
system’s services.

· that grandparents have called from all over the State of Georgia trying to get custody of their grandchildren. DFCS claims relatives are contacted, but there are cases that prove differently. 

Grandparents who lose their grandchildren to strangers have lost their own flesh and blood. The children lose their family heritage and grandparents, and parents too, lose all connections to their heirs.

· that The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official safety, these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the general population.

· That according to the California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003, 30% to 70% of the children in California group homes do not belong there and should not have been removed from their homes.


On my desk are scores of cases of exhausted families and troubled children. It has been beyond me to turn my back on these suffering, crying, and sometimes beaten down individuals. We are mistreating the most innocent. Child Protective Services have become adult centered to the detriment of children. No longer is judgment based on what the child needs or who the child wants to be with or what is really best for the whole family; it is some adult or bureaucrat who makes the decisions, based often on just hearsay, without ever consulting a family member, or just what is convenient, profitable, or less troublesome for a director of DFCS.

I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to these families that I am not sure if I even believe reform of the system is possible! The system cannot be trusted. It does not serve the people. It obliterates families and children simply because it has the power to do so. Children deserve better. Families deserve better. It’s time to pull back the curtain and set our children and families free.

Child Protective Services, CPS, has devastated and destroyed hundreds of thousands of families in America during the last thirty years leaving a trail of broken hearts, broken dreams, and shattered childhoods.

Rather than helping families, government agents have used unconstitutional laws in Juvenile Court to rip children away from their loving parents, break asunder God-given, natural, parent-child bonds, and adopt the children of the grieving out to others who profit financially with large monthly adoption subsidy payments.

Child Protective Services must be stopped! The law that started this, CAPTA, must be repealed. We must work tirelessly to inform the public of this very dangerous travesty of justice. We must keep faith knowing that if there is a God, there is an answer and a way to end this heartache.

Child Protective Services Agents - please come to your senses! Family destruction on false or trivial grounds is wrong, reprehensible, and inhumane.

Fosterers - be aware that for the money you get you are holding much-loved children away from their grieving families while the parents are forced to perform a service plan that is anything but a service to them. I call this hostage holding for the government. 

This is not kindness - to help misguided government agents destroy family relationships and break loving bonds.
CPS workers and fosterers - I ask that you now let the children of the innocent return to their homes where they are truly valued, adored, and loved by the parents God gave them.

Family rights are God-given rights. And they should not be ignored or postponed. Every moment these loving parents and children spend separated from one another is a torment beyond what anyone should ever have to bear.

It is unworthy of human dignity to allow this terrorism and torture of families to go on without saying something, speaking out, and trying to make a change.

Site mission: To provide information and support for families attacked by Child Protective Services and child welfare agents, especially those families facing false or trivial accusations of child abuse or neglect; and for researchers working to protect natural family rights.

Crazy People With Keys To Missile Launch or True Story's + The Link To The Global Shadow Government Part 1

The Disclosure Project interviewed hundreds of witnesses regarding their experiences with UFO's and specifically the following represent only a small proportion of these individuals.

Many had very high Security  Clearances and had access to Nuclear Codes and hardware. The Incident regarding the shutdown of 10 ICBM Missiles in the 1960's. The incident was not a one off. Other Missile groups Land based Silo's had the Missiles totally disarmed  / could not be launched. The incidents are also verified by other witnesses some who inspected the Missiles trying to discover the cause of the failures. (Unsuccessfully )

The Link above will take you to an Interview with one of the Silo operators who has now written a book. Prior to 9/11 20 of the over 200 witnesses appeared before the National Press Club in Washington and presented their individual stories. Though the event was attended by all the major Media none bothered to report on the evidence presented.

I guess they considered the Disarming of ICBM's to be of no significance or that some mass Psychosis had enveloped Military personal in charge of Atomic Weapons. 

At some point the Evidence is overwhelming regarding the existence of UFO's, any "Reasonable' person would have to accept their existence. The connection of the Shadow Government and the present efforts of the Elites to control the Planet is not disconnected from the UFO issue the two events are intimately connected. 

The time when the true agenda of the Shadow Governments will be obvious and if not brought into the Light our futures will be very different, the ultimate goal of both the Elites and the group of Aliens that they are dealing with are to reduce the population by 90% and enslave the rest.

This is the ultimate conclusion to both the GFC and the UFO conspiracy's.

The following is a very small sample:

Maj. George A. Filer, III:  US Air Force (ret.)

“At times I used to carry nuclear weapons.  In other words, I was mentally fit to carry nuclear weapons, but I’m not mentally fit if I see a UFO.  This criticism and this ridicule have done more to keep the story coming out than almost anything else.”

Testimony of Professor Robert Jacobs, Lt. US Air Force

Professor Jacobs is a respected professor at a major US university.  In the 1960’s he was in the Air Force. He was the officer in charge of optical instrumentation and his job was to film ballistic missile tests launched from Vandenberg Air Force base in California.  In 1964, during a test of the first missile they filmed, they caught on film a UFO traveling right next to the missile.  He says it looked like two saucers cupped together with a round ping-pong ball like surface on top.  The film showed that from the ball a beam of light was directed at the missile.  This happened four times, from four different angles, as the missile was about 60 miles up and traveling at 11,000 to 14,000 miles an hour.  The missile tumbled out of space and the UFO left.  The next day he was shown the film by his commanding officer and was told to never speak of this again.  He said, if it ever comes up you are to say that it was laser strikes from the UFO.  Professor Jacobs thought this unusual because in 1964 lasers were in their infancy in the labs but he never the less agreed and hasn’t talked about it for 18 years.  Years later, after an article came out about the film, professor Jacobs started receiving harassing phone calls at early hours in the morning.  His mailbox was even blown up out in front of his house.

Captain Robert Salas:  US Air Force, SAC Launch Controller

 “I wrote up a report about this incident; it was in my log and I turned it in.  When we got to the base we had to report to our squadron commander right away.  And in that room with my squadron commander was a fellow from AFOSI (we had an Air Force Office of Special Investigations on the base).  He was there in the office with the commander.  He asked for my logs and he wanted a quick briefing although it seemed to me he knew pretty much what had happened already.  But we gave him a quick briefing and then he asked us both to sign a non-disclosure agreement saying this was classified information- we were not to release this to anybody, and that was it.  We couldn’t talk; he told us we could not talk about this to anyone, including any of the other crews, our spouses, our family, even amongst each other…

“Bob Kominski headed up the organization to look at all aspects of these [UFO related ICBM] shutdowns.  Kominski relates to me in writing that at some point he was told by his boss that the Air Force said, ‘Stop the investigation; do no more on this and in addition do not write a final report.’  Again, this is very unusual especially in light of the fact that CINC-SAC headquarters was stating that this was of extreme importance to find out exactly what happened here.  And yet, the head of the investigative team was told during the investigation to stop the investigation and not write a final report.”

Testimony of Captain Robert Salas
December 2000

Captain Salas graduated from the Air Force Academy and spent seven years in active duty from 1964 to 1971.  He also held positions at Martin Marietta and Rockwell and spent 21 years at the FAA.  In the Air Force, he was an air traffic controller and a missile launch officer as well as an engineer on the Titan 3 missiles.  He testifies about a UFO incident on the morning of March 16, 1967 where 16 nuclear missiles simultaneously became non-operational at two different launch facilities immediately after guards saw UFOs hovering above.  The guards could not identify these objects even though they were only about 30 feet away.  The Air Force did an extensive investigation of the incidents and could not find a probable cause.  At a debriefing about the incident, an officer from the Air Force Office of Special Investigations required him to sign a non-disclosure form and told him that he was not to talk about the event to anyone including his family or other military staff.  At a time during the Cold War when minor technical anomalies were openly communicated amongst the staff, this incident was not and to this day Captain Salas thinks this to be very unusual.

RS: Capt. Robert Salas                         SG: Dr. Steven Greer

RS:  My name is Robert L. Salas and I graduated from the Air Force Academy and spent about seven and a half years in the Air Force on active duty from 1964 to 1971.  Then I went to work for Martin Marietta first in Denver and then Rockwell International here in the southern California area.  I worked for the FAA in 1974 and worked for them for about 21 years and retired in 1995 from federal service.

In the Air Force I was an air traffic controller- we called it ground control intercept controller.  And then I was a missile launch officer.  After that I was an engineer on the Titan 3 propulsion system out of Los Angeles Air Force station.

The UFO incident, happened on the morning of March 16, 1967.  I was on duty along with my commander Fred Mywald.  We were both on duty at Oscar Flight as part of the 490th strategic missile squad and there are five launch control facilities assigned to that particular squadron.  We were at Oscar Flight.

It was still dark out and we’re sixty feet underground [at the ICBM launch control facility].  It was early in the morning and I received a call from my topside security guard who’s the flight security controller and he said that he and some of the guards had been observing some strange lights flying around the site around the launch control facility.  He said they were acting very unusual just flying around, and I said, “You mean UFO?  He said, well, he didn’t know what they were but they were lights and were flying around.  They were not airplanes; they weren’t making any noise.  They were not helicopters; they were making some very strange maneuvers and he couldn’t explain it.  Well, I just kind of shook my head and said, “Call me if anything more important happens.”

Basically we just ended the conversation.  It wasn’t more than a few minutes- maybe a half hour later- and he calls back and this time he’s very frightened; I can tell by the tone of his voice he’s very shook up.  He says, “Sir, there’s a glowing red object hovering right outside the front gate -- I’m looking at it right now.  I’ve got all the men out here with their weapons drawn”.  Of course he was very disturbed while he was telling me this; he was very excited.

I didn’t know what to make of it but he wanted me to give him instructions or orders, tell him what to do.  And I think I said something like, “Make sure the perimeter fence is secure.”  Then right away he said, “I’ve got to go sir, one of these guards has been injured”, and he hung up.

I immediately went over to my commander who was taking a nap -- we have a little cot down there for rest periods -- and I was telling him about the telephone call we just received.  As I was relating this to him our missiles started shutting down one by one.  By shutting down, I mean they went into a “no-go” condition meaning they could not be launched.  So we get bells and whistles- a red light no-go condition.

As I recalled at the time, it seemed like every one of them shut down but later in recalling this incident with my commander Mywald, he said he felt we only lost maybe seven or eight of these weapons.

SG:  Can you describe what these weapons were, for the record?

RS:  These weapons were Minuteman One missiles and were of course nuclear-tipped warhead missiles.

As they started shutting down, immediately he gets up and we both start querying the status board.  We’ve got the ability to query and determine what the cause of the shutdowns were.  As I recall, most of them were guidance and control system failures.  And then he started reporting to the command post.  In the meantime I called upstairs to find out what the status was of this object and the guard said, well, the object has left- it just left at high speed.

The injured guard was apparently trying to climb this barbed wire but it had nothing to do with the UFO firing anything or injuring this airman.  I asked him what the object looked like and all he could say was that it was an oval shape glowing a reddish orange around the object.

SG:  How far away and what altitude was it?

RS:  Well, he said it was hovering right over the fence and that would have been within about 30 feet from him.  The fence was maybe eight feet high.

There was also another incident that happened within a week of this, just after, where there were radar reports and quite a few more witnesses.

[See the corroborating testimony of Lieutenant Colonel Arne Arneson]

The Air Force did an extensive investigation of the entire incident and was not able to come up with a probable cause for the shutdowns.  And I’ve got quite a few witnesses that will testify to that- we’ve got a couple of people who worked on the investigative team- and I’ve got correspondence from the man who actually organized the investigative team.  There was no viable explanation for this [shutdown of multiple ICBMs].  Each missile is basically self-supporting.  Most of them are powered by commercial power but each missile has its own power generator.

The only connection between the capsule and the missile sites themselves is what we call SIN-lines or sensitive information network lines.  They’re basically buried cables but inside the capsule itself and these lines go to the missiles directly.  The missiles are not connected to each other so having a fault at one site would not affect missiles at another location.
At our site anywhere from six to eight went down but they went down in rapid succession which again is an extremely rare happening.  We rarely had more than one missile go down for any reason at all.  And this was very rare.  Weather was ruled out.  Like I said an extensive investigation was done and power surges were ruled out.  There was only one possibility that was looked at by one of the Boeing engineers that did some test in the laboratory and he thought that some kind of an electromagnetic force or field might have caused the signal to go.  But it would have had to go through the buried cable to each of these missiles.

After I talked to my guard upstairs, my commander talked to the command post.  When he finished talking to the command post he turned to me and said, “The same thing occurred at ECHO Flight.”  ECHO Flight is another squadron, I’d say probably 50 - 60 miles away from our location but they had the same sort of thing happen.  They had UFOs that were hovering, not at the launch control facility but at the actual launch facilities where the missiles are located.  They had some maintenance and security people out there at the time and they observed the UFOs at those sites.  Now they lost all ten of their weapons- all ten.

SG:  This is around the same time?

RS:  It was the same morning.  So that morning we lost anywhere from between 16 to 18 ICBMs at the same time UFOs were in the area and were observed by airmen.  Those missiles were down the entire day because we’ve got testimony from Colonel Don Crawford, who relieved the crew at ECHO Flight and he was there when the missiles were being brought up to alert status and he said it took the whole day.  So I’m assuming it took our missiles all day to be brought back up also.

When we got relieved, I went upstairs and the first thing I did was look in the guard’s eye and say, “Hey, were you telling me the truth about this object?”  He swore up and down he was telling the truth.  I believed him for a couple of reasons.  I knew he was frightened when he called me down there and then when I looked him in the eye and he told me about the situation I certainly believed him.

I wrote up a report about this incident; it was in my log and I turned it in.  When we got to the base we had to report to our squadron commander right away.  And in that room with my squadron commander was a fellow from AFOSI (we had an Air Force Office of Special Investigations on the base).  He was there in the office with the commander.  He asked for my logs and he wanted a quick briefing although it seemed to me he knew pretty much what had happened already.  But we gave him a quick briefing and then he asked us both to sign a non-disclosure agreement saying this was classified information- we were not to release this to anybody, and that was it.  We couldn’t talk; he told us we could not talk about this to anyone, including any of the other crews, our spouses, our family, even amongst each other.

That was the end of that.  I was there at Malmstrom [phonetic sp] for another two years after that and in that time we were never given a de-briefing on any of the incidents- neither the ECHO incident or our own, which is very unusual because we got briefed every morning on any of the anomalies that were going on with the equipment.  We got briefed and we discussed these technical issues that were going on with the weapons but we never heard anything else about these incidents.  And these were major happenings.  These were major happenings.

I’ve got a copy of a telex which we received under FOIA coming from SAC headquarters and coming to Malstrom and other bases right after the morning that happened saying that this incident was of extreme concern to SAC headquarters because they couldn’t explain it.  Nobody could explain what happened.  And yet we never got de-briefed.  And we were cleared for very high classification because these are nuclear weapons we’re dealing with.

We did get the security incursion alarms at those sites when the missile went down.  That is unusual because usually when a missile went down for something like guidance failure, we wouldn’t get security incursion alarms, which means a perimeter is breached, an object crossed the fence, or something broke the security alarm system that we had on the perimeter of the launch facility.  I did sent out guards to a couple of those facilities to investigate that.

The reason I think this story is very significant is because, going back to August of 1966 at Minot, ND, a very similar thing happened at one of the launch control facilities at Minot Air Force Base.  They had the same kind of weapon system that we had- they had M-1 missiles.  This [UFO] was observed on radar, there was some communication failure and the object was observed over the launch control facility.

That happened in August 1966 and that’s a well documented incident.  About a week prior to my incident, in March 1967, I’ve got a record of a call from one of the security guards who was out roaming looking at the launch facilities and saw an object very similar to what I just described over the launch facility.  The commander reported it to command post.  About a week to ten days after our incident, there’s a very well documented incident that happened at Malstrom.  In this case, near Malstrom Air Force Base, a UFO was tracked by radar and was observed at relatively close range by a truck driver and highway patrolman.  The Air Force did an investigation and there’s an extensive report on the Air Force investigation of this UFO sighting because it flew around the base and very close to the base.

So this is a whole series of things that happened having to do with the same kind of weapon system, the Minuteman Missile.

The reports that were made to me by my guards were official reports.  These were not jokes- they were not meant to be anything but official reports because we were dealing with strategic weapons during the Cold War, during the Vietnam War.  They were professional, these guards, and they were not about to joke about weapons being down, about what they were seeing.  So these were not rumors, they were official reports.  If they were recanted for any reason, these men should have been court-martialed

Bob Kominski headed up the organization to look at all aspects of these shutdowns.  Kominski relates to me in writing that at some point he was told by his boss that the Air Force said, “Stop the investigation; do no more on this and in addition do not write a final report.”  Again, this is very unusual especially in light of the fact that CINC-SAC headquarters was stating that this was of extreme importance to find out exactly what happened here.  And yet, the head of the investigative team was told during the investigation to stop the investigation and not write a final report.

I heard that many of the guards that reported this incident were sent off to Vietnam, as a matter of fact.  I know for a fact - this I can attest to- that one of the guards that I sent out to the launch facilities and observed an object came back and was very shaken by the experience.  And he was taken off guard duty from then on.  He was sent somewhere else because he was too shaken by the experience.

Testimony of Lt. Colonel Dwynne Arneson, US Air Force (retired)
September 2000

Lt. Col. Arneson spent 26 years in the USAF.  He had an above top-secret SCI-TK (Special Compartmented Tango Kilo) clearance.  He worked as a computer systems analyst for Boeing and was the Director of Logistics at Wright-Patterson AFB.  At one point he was the cryptography officer for the entire Ramstein AFB in Germany and while there one day he received a classified message that said that a UFO had crashed in Spitsbergen Norway.  While at Malmstrom AFB in Montana he again saw a message that said that a metallic circular UFO was seen hovering near the missile silos and that all the missiles went off-line so that they could not be launched.

DA: Lt. Col. Dwyyne Arneson               SG: Dr. Steven Greer

DA:  My name is Dwynne Arneson.  I was born in Rochester, Minnesota back in 1937, and went to Rochester High School.  From there I graduated and went on to St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota where I got my degree in physics and math.  Upon graduation, I competed for Officer’s Training School in the Air Force and then was selected to get a commission, went to Officer’s Training School, and was commissioned back in 1962.  I went on to spend twenty-six years in the U.S. Air Force as a communication-electronics officer and retired in 1986.  I had assignments all over the world, including Vietnam, Europe -- you name it, I’ve probably been there.

I held a top-secret SCI-TK clearance.  That means Special Compartmented

I had various opportunities to see things that come through my perusal.  One instance was back in 1962 when I was a lieutenant at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.  I was the crypto officer for the entire Ramstein

I do not recall where the message came from, where it was going to, because in that capacity we were oftentimes told, "What you see here, leave here."  But I can recall seeing that.

The next thing that comes to mind is one that took place in 1967.  I was in charge of the Communication Center, the Twentieth Air Division at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana.  I was again the top-secret control officer there.  I dispatched all the nuclear launch authentications to the SAC missile crews, so -- I had a very good top-secret background.

One day, I happened to see a message that came through my communications center.  There again, I cannot quote the date, where it came from, where it was going to, but I do recall reading it and seeing it.  It said, basically, that "A UFO was seen near missile silos”… and it was hovering. It said that the crew going on duty and the crew coming off duty all saw the UFO just hovering in mid-air.  It was a metallic circular object and from what I understand, the missiles were all shut down.

And then later on, years later while working here at Boeing, I heard from a man named, Bob Kaminisky, who had retired from Boeing and he said, "Yes, I was the engineer assigned by Boeing to come up and check out the missiles to make certain that they in fact had not gone down upon their own."  And he said, "I gave them a complete bill of health."  And I worked for Bob in Boeing and I was a good friend of his.

Even before he passed away, we had many, many conversations on this subject, and he was just a very incredible man.

[See the testimony of Capt. Robert Salas regarding these ICBM missile events at Malmstrom AFB.  SG]

What I mean by "missiles going down," is that they went dead.  And something turned those missiles off, and so they could not be put in a mode for launching.

At another time, when I was Commander of a radar squadron up in Maine, at Caswell Air Force Station, Maine, we were right next door to Loring Air Force Base.  It was where they launch the B-52s and the KC tankers and things like that.  I had a lot of security friends over there at Loring who told me about UFOs hovering near the nuclear weapon storage area on Loring

[This corroborates the testimony of Lieutenant Colonel Joe Wojtecki.  See that testimony regarding a significant event at Loriing AFB.  SG]

A little bit of background, not to belabor the point, but -- when I was assigned as Director of Logistics at Wright-Patterson, I left the wife and kids back in Oklahoma City.  It was my daughter’s last year of high school, so I went out there on my own for about a year.  And in the search for an apartment out there, I came across this lady, Chris Weedon by name, who had a little five-acre English manor outside of Dayton.  She had three rooms for rent, three bedrooms.  So I rented one, and I kind of became her son.  I helped her cut the grass, I mowed the lawn, etc.  She was up in her seventies.

Her husband was a Lieutenant Colonel Spencer Weedon.  Now, he died about twelve years prior to that, and from everybody that I met, they said he was just a brilliant guy.  He had a photographic mind, and he was one of the lead investigators of UFOs at Wright-Patterson.  In fact I have a tape at home, produced back in the 1950s, of a debate between Spencer WeedonKeyhoe.  It was done in the Armstrong Circle Theater.  So he was her husband.

The one person I happened to meet and took quite a shine to, and he to me, was a Dr. Adolph Raum.  Now, he at that time was eighty-three years old.  I think he has since died.  One night after supper and after a few martinis, I jokingly asked Adolph, "What do you know about the little gray men that are supposedly on ice here at Wright-Patterson?"  And I distinctly recall his face turning ashen white, his voice got very stern, and he said, "Arne," he says, "all I can tell you is that they were not weather balloons, and we will not talk about it again.  Do you understand?"  And there was no uncertainty in my mind that we wouldn’t talk about this further.  He was from Switzerland originally.  He was on the first A-Bomb test in the U.S. and he knew Dr. Oppenheimer personally.  Even though I had a top-secret clearance, there were areas that we just couldn’t get near, and we just could not find anything about some of these areas at Wright-Patterson that may have held some bodies or -- who knows what they held?  And a lot of my technicians that worked for me as a communication electronics officer; would tell stories about objects going across their radar screens at fantastic speeds.  Nothing we had could go that fast.

SG:  What years would this have been?

DA:  Well, this was back in the mid-seventies when I had that radar squadron commander’s job at Caswell Air Force Station, Maine.  That’s when these technicians would tell me about events like that.

As a commander of a radar squadron, you have people who are operational types as well as the people who are the technician types, who actually maintain the radars.  In fact, in that capacity, we would take and have battle exercises.  We were the only radar squadron in the U.S. under operational control of the Canadian NORAD Division.  Now, you’d see the B-52s coming down from Canada, the fighter interceptors being directed against them, or whatnot.  So these men knew how fast things were flying.  They knew the speed of bombers.  They knew the speed of the current fighter force that we had.  The radar technicians I had, the maintenance men working for me -- they were in the position to say, "Yes, that scope was in A-1 condition -- or the radar is in A-1 condition."  So things could check out.  The experience of the operational types, the experience of the maintenance guys -- they confirmed that the system was operating perfectly.  And they said, "That thing is going two or three thousand miles an hour."  I heard it from different sources that related similar events at different radar stations throughout the U.S., not just at Caswell Air Force Station.  We had radar stations back in those days all over the U.S. and stories like that are not uncommon at all.

If you think about it, all this vast universe we have, if we’re the only intelligent life here, God has sure got bad judgment…

for giving false reports during a very sensitive incident.  And none of that happened.   Tango Kilo information, which is above top secret, if you will.  It takes a special investigation to get that sort of a clearance.  Upon getting out of the Air Force, and retiring as a colonel in 1986, I applied for work at Boeing, and I came to work for Boeing as a computer systems analyst, and I’ve been working since 1987 in that capacity with Boeing.  I retired in 1986 as Director of Logistics at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.   Air Base.  I was a top-secret control officer.  And in that capacity, I happened to see a classified message go through my com center, which said that "A UFO has crashed on the Island of Spitsbergen, Norway, and a team of scientists are coming to investigate it."   Air Force Base.   and that Major Donald

25 nations have deliberately slashed the values of their currencies

We have had pure "Fiat" Money since 1971 when Nixon took America off the Gold Standard, enabling the Boom Bust cycles that have enabled the Super Rich to exit the door first and taking the profits; before 'Joe Sixpack' has a chance to get out of falling markets.

Now the action is in trading and debasing currency in order to shave Billions of the top as they circle the planet manipulating the money we use and have an almost reigious belief in its value.

Take out a paper note and have a look at it. Its Paper and its only value exists in the shadow world of Global Banking. Japan is probably the most exposed to a disaster of a proportion that will start the Domminoes falling. Without a Gold or other 'Real' asset behind it, that paper money is simply paper. If I tried to exchange an ounce of Silver for $22 (USD) what would you say ? 

Simply put the value of the number in your Saving Account is more real to you than an equivelent amount of Gold. Its built into the mind from a very young age; the reality is very different. A bout of Inflation of 7% would evaporate the value of your money in less than 10 years it would be worthless. Inflation is a Tax you are forced to pay, the only way around it we are told is invest it in a Bank, Stock or Bond. 

In the next few years there will be a 'Run' on the US Dollar, a prelude to this will probably be the upcoming crisis in Japan. Japan is in debt to the tune of 200% of GDP. In other words they are Bankrupt as is the UK and the United States. 

Who falls first? My bet is Japan, the article below is from King World News. As with anything important to your survival you should research for yourself and get some Insurance. Gold has a long way up yet to go. As currency becomes visible for what it is (Worthless Paper) the race for hard assets will be on. The 40 year experiment with funny money is nearly over and its a disaster.

September 28 (King World News) - Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man........Thief 

Within a single week 25 nations have deliberately slashed the values of their currencies.   Nothing quite comparable with this has ever happened before in the history of the world.   This world monetary earthquake will carry many lessons.”

Globally GDP has been anaemic since the crisis first arose in 2007.  The inevitable conclusion of most countries today is that the best way to extricate themselves from the current mess is to shift effective demand away from imports onto domestically produced goods.   The preferred method is competitive currency devaluations.   

Unfortunately this is not possible for all, and leads to friction as countries effectively steal other nations output to bolster their own.   Plato and Aristotle referred to this as 'overgrazing', the ‘tragedy of the commons’.  Nothing changes.   This always leads to heightened tensions and conditions of capital controls and other protectionist behaviour such as punitive tariffs and quotas on imports often prevail.   Friedman's flat world aside - it is already happening. 

To maintain the last decade of prosperity (illusion) countries are systematically hell bent on exporting themselves to economic health.   This is a zero sum game.  Not all countries can export at the same time by definition that the global balance of payments will not then balance.   For one winner there is a loser.   The implication on import prices is dramatic.   Inflation is imported or exported depending on your view point around the world.   Let's rephrase 'inflation' - global citizens will experience a rise in the value of goods due to creation of more money used to devalue their currency.   

The pursuit of mercantilist traditions may help alleviate the collapse in output for some, and the ensuing rise in goods prices may help government reduce the value of their debts; but at what costs? Increased international tensions and let's not forget the internal social unrest that is accompanied by citizens whose wages have not kept abreast of these rising prices.   

As the traditional English folk tune rhymes Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man........Thief.   Rich or poor, you beg from your neighbour there is no two ways about it in the world of current accounts - you are a thief.   

It is politically more savoury to expropriate the output from another country, unfortunately this will be at the loss of the majority.

Within a single week 25 nations have deliberately slashed the values of their currencies.   Nothing quite comparable with this has ever happened before in the history of the world.   This world monetary earthquake will carry many lessons.

Henry Hazlitt 1948 wrote this in a book "From Bretton Woods to World Inflation", which predicted the inevitable collapse of this fixed exchange rate mechanism.   It was a compilation of his editorials from both his time at the New York Times and Newsweek, which ridiculed the prevailing economic Keynesian thinking to great effect.   A brilliant journalist, economists and liberal philosopher, this man intuitively understood the pernicious nature of the Bretton Woods fixed exchange rate arranged in 1944. 

Murmurings of such 'beggar-thy-neighbour' currency devaluations have once again sprung up amongst the financial literati and rightly so.   Better late than never.   The truth be told is that we have been living in a highly unstable world even more so than under BW I.   The dollar pegs, primarily the Asian renminbi dollar semi-fixed exchange rate, what most refer to as Bretton Woods II, have (arguably) been responsible for the financial friction we observe today. 

The RMB and US dollar are constantly colliding into each other. The clashing of these two tectonic currency plates has just begun to accelerate at an alarming rate.   Ironically the move to greater currency flexibility on the part of the RMB against the dollar stands ready to produce the almighty mother of seismic monetary events - the collapse of the fiat currency system.   The implications for government bonds, equities and real assets are profound.   Are we being overly sensational? We don't think so.

The Day We Were 2 Minutes From The End Of The World

Stanislav Petrov — World Hero
He averted a catastrophe that could have shaken the foundation of the Earth
for many centuries to come — and the future of humanity

Dangerous Prelude
In 1983 relations between the United States and the Soviet Union were severely strained. The timing probably could not have been worse for a mistaken nuclear attack warning. Had Stanislav Petrov declared the warning valid, as his computers indicated, the Soviet leadership likely would have taken his decision as fact. Consider what was happening in the weeks and months leading up to Sept. 25, 1983: 

  • The Soviet military shot down a Korean passenger jet Sept. 1, 1983 (only three weeks before this incident), killing all 269 people on board, including many Americans. Soon after, the KGB sent a flash message to its operatives in the West, warning them to prepare for possible nuclear war, according to CNN.
  • The American leadership began referring to the Soviet Union as an “evil empire.”
  • Throughout 1983 the Kremlin assumed the West was planning a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union, according to experts quoted by the Federation of American Scientists.
  • After President Reagan’s “Star Wars” speech March 23, 1983, the Soviets feared such a system would increase the likelihood the United States would launch a first attack since the United States would not fear retaliation, according to CNN.
  • The Russians saw a U.S. government preparing for a first strike, headed by a President capable of ordering a first strike. Russian strategy is to fire its arsenal as soon as possible after receiving indications of an attack, according to Bruce Blair, an expert on Cold War nuclear strategies (Dateline NBC, Nov. 12, 2000).
  • The United States and NATO were organizing a military exercise that centered on using tactical nuclear weapons in Europe. Soviet leaders were concerned this was a cover for an actual invasion. (IEEE Spectrum, March 2000)

Stanislav Petrov — World Hero
He averted a catastrophe that could have shaken the foundation of the Earth
for many centuries to come — and the future of humanity forever . . .
In 1983 in Russia, there was a man who would have been considered an enemy by the people of America. But as it turned out, he would become for them and for the world an unknown hero perhaps the greatest hero of all time. Because of military secrecy, and political and international differences, most of the world has not heard of this man. He is Stanislav Petrov.
The extraordinary incident leading to his heroism occurred near Moscow, in the former Soviet Union, just past midnight, Sept. 26, 1983. 

Because of time-zone differences, it was still Sept. 25 in America, a Sunday afternoon.
During the Cold War at this time, the United States and the Soviet Union were bitter adversaries. These two world powers did not trust each other, and this distrust led to a dangerous consequence:  

They built thousands of nuclear weapons to be used against each other if a war should ever break out between them. If there ever were such a war, these nations would very likely devastate each other and much of the world many times over, resulting in the deaths of perhaps hundreds of millions of people.
It was Lieutenant Colonel Stanislav Petrov’s duty to use computers and satellites to warn the Soviet Union if there were ever a nuclear missile attack by the United States. In the event of such an attack, the Soviet Union’s strategy was to launch an immediate all-out nuclear weapons counterattack against the United States.

On this particular day, something went wrong. Suddenly the computer alarms sounded, warning that an American missile was heading toward the Soviet Union. Lt. Col. Petrov reasoned that a computer error had occurred, since the United States was not likely to launch just one missile if it were attacking the Soviet Union it would launch many. Besides, there had been questions in the past about the reliability of the satellite system being used. So he dismissed the warning as a false alarm, concluding that no missile had actually been launched by the United States.

But then, just a short time later, the situation turned very serious. Now the computer system was indicating a second missile had been launched by the United States and was approaching the Soviet Union. Then it showed a third missile being launched, and then a fourth and a fifth. 

The sound of the alarms was deafening. In front of Lt. Col. Petrov the word “Start” was flashing in bright lettering, presumably the instruction indicating the Soviet Union must begin launching a massive counterstrike against the United States.

Even though Lt. Col. Petrov had a gnawing feeling the computer system was wrong, he had no way of knowing for sure. He had nothing else to go by. The Soviet Union’s land radar was not capable of detecting any missiles beyond the horizon, information that by then would be too late to be useful. And worse, he had only a few minutes to decide what to tell the Soviet leadership. 

He made his final decision:  He would trust his intuition and declare it a false alarm. If he were wrong, he realized nuclear missiles from the United States would soon begin raining down on the Soviet Union.

He waited. The minutes and seconds passed. Everything remained quiet no missiles and no destruction. His decision had been right. Stanislav Petrov had prevented a worldwide nuclear war. He was a hero. Those around him congratulated him for his superb judgment.
But he had disobeyed military procedure by defying the computer warnings. And because of this, he later underwent intense questioning by his superiors about his actions during this nerve-racking ordeal. Perhaps because he had ignored the warnings, he was no longer considered a reliable military officer. 

Presumably in the military it is understood that orders and procedures are to be carried out unfailingly, without question.

In the end, the Soviet military did not reward or honor Stanislav Petrov for his actions. It did not punish him either. But his once promising military career had come to an end. He was reassigned to a less sensitive position and soon was retired from the military. He went on to live his life in Russia as a pensioner.

Because of Stanislav Petrov’s actions that day in 1983, the Earth was spared what could have become the most devastating tragedy in the history of humanity. Stanislav Petrov has said he does not regard himself as a hero for what he did that day. But in terms of the incalculable number of lives saved, and the overall health of the planet Earth, he undeniably is one of the greatest heroes of all time.

There is yet something else unsettling about this incident. Stanislav Petrov was not originally scheduled to be on duty that night. Had he not been there, it is possible a different commanding officer would not have questioned the computer alarms, tragically leading the world into a nuclear holocaust.

As it turned out, this incident ended fortunately for America and for the world. But unfortunately for Stanislav Petrov, it ruined his career and his health, and it deprived him of his peace of mind. This is one debt the world will never be able to repay.

Stanislav Petrov Honored at the United Nations
Stanislav Petrov was honored in a meeting at the United Nations in New York City Jan. 19, 2006, which he described as his “happiest day in many years.” At the United Nations meeting, The Association of World Citizens, an international peace organization with branches in 30 countries, presented Stanislav Petrov with a special World Citizen Award. This is the second such award he has received from that organization (both awards are described further down on this page).

The following day Stanislav Petrov met with renowned American journalist Walter Cronkite at his CBS office in New York City. That interview, in addition to other highlights of Stanislav Petrov’s trip to the United States, will be included in a documentary, The Man Who Saved the World, which is being produced by the Danish motion picture company Statement Film. It is expected to be released in July 2009.

Stanislav Petrov was in the United States Jan. 14-28, 2006, participating in many meetings and interviews.

Stanislav Petrov revisited the United States in the spring of 2007, traveling to New York, to missile silos in South Dakota, to Las Vegas and the Nevada Test Site, and to San Francisco (all part of filming for the documentary The Man Who Saved the World).
