A leading weather service is reporting that the US government is opening a public, on the record study into weather modification and Geo-engineering.Weather modification and Geo-engineering are both taboo topics for most people, with many believing that no such programs exist.

Despite the mountains of proof put forward by whistle blowers and and independent researchers, weather modification is just too crazy for some people to believe.The government has been involved with may of these projects on the record, but they will rarely admit this and refuse to entertain any questions on the subject.

The media have also been complicit in keeping most people in disbelief of weather modification and Geo-engineering.

A grim Ministry of Health MoH report on information obtained from former CIA/NSA whistleblower, and “global hero to the masses,” Edward Snowden reveals the Obama regimes fears of a raging pandemic due to upcoming solar storms that, according to the Americans, “may very well alter life on this planet as we know it.”

According to the MoH, one of the computer devices USB flash drive provided to Russian intelligence by Snowden contains over 20,000 pages of top-secret US Defense Department DOD documents related to that military institutions shocking 2004 report to then President George W. Bush that stated “climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters,” that “disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,” and concluding that “Once again, warfare would define human life.

”Important to note about this information obtained from Snowden, this MoH report says, is that it follows a path similar to that of the 2004 Pentagon Report in that the world’s first notice of it came when it was leaked to Britain’s The Guardian Newspaper, and, like Snowden’s spying revelations to this same newspaper earlier this spring, the leakers appear to be “strongly associated” with the “President Carter-General Colin Powell Faction” currently waging a secret war against the Obama regime.

When the Pentagon said earlier this year that it would open ground combat jobs to women, it was cast in terms of giving women equal opportunities in the workplace — the military workplace.

But the move has practical considerations, too. The military needs qualified people to fill its ranks, and it’s increasingly harder to find them among men.

Dear General Pace,

 

I note with admiration your courage in making clear your private concerns about the safety of the US military and the longterm danger to US national security caused by the President’s stubborn refusal to acknowledge the quagmire in Iraq.

 

Though you are Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the President’s principal military advisor – President Bush has shown his disdain for your honesty and wisdom. Though you are a decorated Vietnam war hero – who has served his nation honorably for four decades – the President is dispensing with your services. You have one month left in your position before you are tossed out by the President.

(Dec. 12, 2009) — The Joint Chiefs of Staff should be worried of the dire punishment they will face, when they are one day convicted of treason against the United States of America for siding with the enemy and giving him aide and comfort.

 

The Uniform Code of Military Justice is quite specific that in such a case even the Joint Chiefs can be punished with death, on order of a military tribunal.

 

The Uniform Codes of Military Justice, on the crime of treason says under Article 906 — Espionage, section c:

 

 

 

A sentence of death may be adjudged by a court-martial for an offense under this section (article) only if the members unanimously find, beyond a reasonable doubt, one or more of the following aggravating factors:

The U.S. military faces devastating losses in troop strength and training, equipment procurement and maintenance, and mission capability if Congress does not avert automatic spending cuts set to begin March 1, top defense officials testified Tuesday.

“Secretary [Leon E.] Panetta and I have been using the word devastating for 16 months now,” said Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, who testified with military leaders at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. “And now the wolf’s at the door.”

The nation’s top military officers formed a solid front in the Senate on Tuesday and called on members of Congress to stop passing temporary spending measures and avert the automatic budget cut known as sequester.

“We should resist kicking this can further down the road,” said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in a rare hearing featuring nearly all of the Joint Chiefs, who lined up before the Senate Armed Service Committee and demanded budget clarity in the name of national security and military readiness.

Every leader in the Pentagon has been warning for more than a year that if sequestration comes to pass the impact to the military will be severe. But the armed services’ most senior officers now are telling Congress those impacts are not a distant prospect — they could be looking at a “hollowed-out” force within a matter of months after the cuts are triggered.

The Turret Gunner Was a She… “Martin Dempsey, the Army general who’s now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was a division commander when he got to Baghdad in 2003 and climbed into a Humvee for his first trip off base. “I asked the driver … who he was (and) where he was from,” the general remembers, “and I slapped the turret gunner around the leg and I said, ‘Who are you?’ And she leaned down and said, ‘I’m Amanda.'”

Martin Dempsey, the Army general who’s now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was a division commander when he got to Baghdad in 2003 and climbed into a Humvee for his first trip off base. “I asked the driver … who he was (and) where he was from,” the general remembers, “and I slapped the turret gunner around the leg and I said, ‘Who are you?’ And she leaned down and said, ‘I’m Amanda.’

 

“And I said, ‘Ah, OK.’ So female turret gunner protecting division commander.”

 

One of the things that makes a good commander is the speed with which he can adjust to changed conditions, and the general had just been introduced to another reality of the ever-new U.S. Army.

 

The general told that story the other day as he stood next to the country’s secretary of defense to formally lift the Army’s ban on women in combat units. No, not every woman — or man — may be fit for combat, but now every trooper has a chance to qualify for it. Which is as it should be — at last.

(Col Sellin) Has General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made himself a political shill for the Obama Administration? ~ Family Security Matters « AMERICAN BLOGGER: GUNNY.G ~ WEBLOG.EMAIL

Has General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made himself a political shill for the Obama Administration?

 

According to Fox News, General Dempsey criticized a group of former military and intelligence operatives for its aggressive campaign against President Obama, telling Fox News that he is “disappointed” by such political activity, which he called “not useful.”

Specifically, Dempsey denounced a group of former CIA agents, Navy SEALs and other military members, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, who recently released a long-form political ad blasting Obama for security leaks on his watch, as well as suggesting he has taken too much credit for the SEALs raid in Pakistan that killed Usama bin Laden.

The wretched absurdity of the Benghazi report

Under the cover of the Newtown school shooting, an “independent” five member investigative panel quietly released an unclassified, 39-page report Tuesday night, detailing their findings of the attack that led to the murder of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

The report cites five main reasons for the loss of life, all primarily related to inadequate security for U.S. personnel. However, the independent panel found that no “U.S. Government employee engaged in misconduct or willfully ignored his or her responsibilities, and, therefore did not find reasonable cause to believe that an individual breached his or her duty so as to be the subject of a recommendation for disciplinary action.” Stated another way, no one is to blame nor will be held accountable for the murders of Americans Sean Smith, Glen Dougherty, Tyrone Woods, and Ambassador Chris Stevens., so just continue with your business.

Pentagon Peacocks… (Gunny G: “Perfumed Princes” As Col David Hackworth Would Refer To Them)

December 5, 2012 16 comments

The Davis Petraeus saga is another urban legend; a myth about a great man felled by a single flaw or indiscretion. The truth is that Petraeus is a bit player in a larger, uglier drama, the political corruption the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and that exclusive four star glut that sits atop the military. And the rot didn’t start with Petraeus. Recall Army Chief-of-Staff George Casey taking to the airways to rationalize the Fort Hood Islamist massacre in 2009. Somehow “diversity” and Muslim sensitivities were more important than twin dangers of domestic sedition or troop safety on American bases.

rprprprp

rprprprp (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

Casey was thrown at the Sunday chat shows, like the more recent Susan Rice mendacity tour, to spin a politically correct message. And then there was Admiral Mike Mullen leading the charge for sex with any sex a year later on the E-Ring at the Pentagon. Say what you will about booty call as a “civil right,” but gender choice is not a significant national security issue in the middle of a shooting war. The legality of relationships are social issues that should be addressed by an elected, yet too often cowardly,

Congress; not the appointed military brass. And while the JCS was riding point for preferences, nobody seemed to notice, or care about, failure in all those Muslim Wars. Indeed, a four-star public relations campaign reinvented the English language to avoid words like victory. The new word for retreat is “drawdown.”

If the recent election proved anything, it proved that Americans are exactly what our enemies have been claiming we are for sometime now. Weak, lazy, dependent, with no gumption, no ambition, and yes, impotent.In short, modern Americans are a pitiful lot, ripe for the picking.

And believe you me, as the low hanging fruit that we are today, we WILL BE harvested — and soon.We just saw in the international press recently that Russia, our age-old enemy is gearing up for war with America.

Indeed. Not much has changed one hundred years on.

Ronald Reagan clashed with Libya and its dictator Moammar Gadhafi for the first time over 30 years ago.

 

The details of that encounter must be revisited —particularly President Reagan’s sense of resolve and clarity of purpose— as once again President Obama’s foreign policy grapples with the anti-American sentiment and attacks on U.S. diplomatic posts in the Middle East.

(Col Sellin) Has General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made himself a political shill for the Obama Administration? ~ Family Security Matters

August 23, 2012 25 comments

 

Has General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made himself a political shill for the Obama Administration?

According to Fox News, General Dempsey criticized a group of former military and intelligence operatives for its aggressive campaign against President Obama, telling Fox News that he is “disappointed” by such political activity, which he called “not useful.”Specifically, Dempsey denounced a group of former CIA agents, Navy SEALs and other military members, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, who recently released a long-form political ad blasting Obama for security leaks on his watch, as well as suggesting he has taken too much credit for the SEALs raid in Pakistan that killed Usama bin Laden.Those seem to be legitimate criticisms made by knowledgeable and experienced individuals.

Dempsey, however, said as the steward of his profession — the military — he thinks it imperative that the military remain “apolitical.”Nonsense. They are civilians.This is nothing less than a blatant attempt by Dempsey to silence criticism of Obama because it makes him look bad to the Administration that appointed him.One imagines the Obama campaign dressing down Dempsey:

Frederick W. Kagan’s “Let the Generals Speak” (May 8) wrongly claims that retired military officers are not subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. All those receiving retired pay are subject to the UCMJ.

……The book continues, “The Chinese knew they had captured a prize because Schwable, a veteran of sixty-five night missions in World War II and winner of four distinguished Flying Crosses, was in uniform and carried his armed services identification card, a Virginia driver’s license, a flight instrument ticket, pictures of his family, and a copy of his flight plan.

For months he was kept in solitary confinement in a filthy lean-to under the eaves of a Korean house. The forty-four-year-old Schwable was harried, accused of being a war criminal, fed little, denied proper latrine privileges, refused medical attention, and subjected to extremes of heat and cold. Except for a “two-week thinking period,” he was intensely interrogated, although he was never beaten. Finally, at the end of December, after intimidation and dire threats, the senior UN prisoner after General Dean finally submitted a confession that suited the Communists.”

Obama hires his personal murder czar and Dems continue to threaten SCOTUS

May 25, 2012 13 comments

By Sher Zieve

When any country’s leader reaches comprehensive dictator status, he begins either incarcerating or killing off his opponents (aka enemies). One need only look at the rich and murderous histories of Josef Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot and other tyrannical rulers to know that this is a fait accompli in all totalitarian regimes. In one way or another, each of these tyrants conducted their own personal genocide(s).

In fact, Barack Obama’s FCC “Diversity” Czar Mark Lloyd has touted as legitimate the usage of a willing and malleable press (as was done with the media-based “Big-Lie” that the Tutsis planned to enslave the Hutus which resulted in the Rwandan slaughter of 800,000 Tutsis within a period of 100 days) to conduct just such a genocide for “social change.”

The openly Black Liberation (Marxist) Lloyd also praises Venezuelan Marxist Dictator Hugo Chavez and has said the “whites” need to be forced to step down allow blacks and other minorities to have their turn at power. ObamaCzar Lloyd also says that free speech is overrated and “This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.” And with regards to the American people, one of Lloyd’s patently racist comments is: “There are few things I think more frightening in the American mind than dark skinned black men. Here I am!”

MAY MEMO: Top Ten False Flag Terror Targets | Veterans Today

May 9, 2012 Leave a comment

By Captain Eric H. May, Ghost Troop CO

False Flags are a standard stratagem, particularly in democracies, in which it’s necessary to create consensus before waging war. Prior to the Spanish-American War in 1898, the explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor propelled the American people into an imperial affray — much as 9/11 did a century later, instigating invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Half a dozen headlines describe our situation, in which a false flag attack, blamed on Iran, may well pull us into our third post-9/11 Mid East war:

U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba: In 1962 the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed a multi-faceted false flag operation to JFK. (ABC, 2001)

New revelations in attack on American spy ship: LBJ helped a 1967 Israeli false flag attack against the USS Liberty, intended to draw the U.S. into its Six-Day War. (Chicago Tribune, 2007)

White Man’s Burden: American Jews were instrumental in leading the U.S. into the Iraq War, according to Jewish writer Ari Shavit. (Haaretz, 2003)

“9/11 Was Good For Us.” — The Case Against Israel: Israeli fingerprints are all over 9/11, according to U.S. investigators who say that their hands are tied and their voices are silenced. (Veterans Today, 2007)

Israeli military ready for action in Iran: military: “We are ready for action,” said Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz said. He added that Israeli covert actions around the globe had gone up by “tens of per cent, even more,” and that almost not a moment went by without Israel taking action somewhere in the world.

The term “Perfumed Prince” caught my eye on the Net in relation to  to David Petreaus the present CIA Director.

Previously, I had only seen “Perfumed Princes” used by the late retired Col David Hackworth, USA, a decorated hero of several wars, and a prolific writer.

In fact,over the years, I have posted several or more of Col Hack’s writings to my own GunnyG’s sites, forums, and blogs.

I will attempt to find some of his old articles, and others, for posting here.

Prison Planet.com » Iran Has Ability to Block Strait of Hormuz, U.S. General Dempsey Tells CBS

January 9, 2012 4 comments

Iran has the ability to block the Strait of Hormuz “for a period of time,” and the U.S. would take action to reopen it, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Martin Dempsey said.

“They’ve invested in capabilities that could, in fact, for a period of time block the Strait of Hormuz,” Dempsey said in an interview aired yesterday on the CBS “Face the Nation” program. “We’ve invested in capabilities to ensure that if that happens, we can defeat that.”

Should Iran try to close Hormuz, the U.S. “would take action and reopen” the waterway, said Dempsey, President Barack Obama’s top military adviser.

Blocking the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic shipping lane linking the Gulf of Oman with the Persian Gulf, would constitute a “red line” for the U.S., as would Iranian efforts to build a nuclear weapon, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on the same program.

Obama’s militarization of homefront ~ “This week, over the objections of Joint Chiefs of Staff…..”

January 8, 2012 2 comments

In July 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama vowed to create a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military.

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

Image via Wikipedia

Apparently no one else in the national press found that promise newsworthy, because I was the first to call it to the attention of the public days later. Interestingly, the pledge had been stricken from transcripts of the speech handed out to media.

What ever happened to the “civilian national security force” initiative? No one in the press has dared to ask that question.

But two recent developments suggest Obama may have found an innovative way to achieve his objectives to militarize the homefront without creating a new national security force:

In December, both houses of Congress passed the defense reauthorization bill that killed the concept of habeas corpus – legislation that authorized the president to use the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trial.

This week, over the objections of Joint Chiefs of Staff…..

Was the timing merely serendipitous or is something else at play? Yesterday was the “birthday” of the United States Bill of Rights, which our forefathers ratified exactly 220 years ago. The same people who believe the constitution is a living, breathing document just put it on a respirator, metaphorically speaking, by passing the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA). Obama has declared his intent to sign the legislation, despite initial indications from the White House of a veto (more on that dog and pony show later in this writing).

NDAA: The 2012 version

Every year, a new version of the defense authorization bill is crafted and ultimately enacted into law. It is an extensive piece of legislation that appropriates funds to defense projects. The current bill provides for a $662 billion defense budget and places the chief of the National Guard Bureau on the Joint Chiefs of Staff despite strong opposition of some military leaders. The massive budget allocation and the creation of a cabinet position for the chief of the U.S. National Guard is not at issue, however. The somewhat muted public frenzy over this bill stems from controversial and seemingly contradictory language that will have an impact on all United States citizens.

CAN THE U.S. BE REVIVED AFTER OBAMA?

by One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet

Can the U.S. Constitution be re-established as the foundation of our Republic after what Obama and members of his regime have done?

(Nov. 9, 2011) — We live in perilous times. Sometime in the past, the two-party political system in America merged into an insatiable beast that has devoured treaties, laws, common sense, and sold the Constitution down the river: the Judiciary has ruled against citizen’s rights, the Congress has not heeded the demands of its constituents to investigate Obama’s fake birth certificates and/or bogus Social Security number, let alone false information in registering for the Selective Service, and the Presidency has overstepped its bounds since the first day of this administration by sealing all records; a violation of trust if there ever was one.

To top it off, the Joint Chiefs of Staff have remained mute on numerous vital milestone occasions from the LTC Lakin Affair to the Rules of Engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan to being Iran’s patsy by paving the way for Al Qaeda to rule over Libya.

This fact is manifest and notorious. There is one thing certain about Obama, and the Joint Chiefs know it: his father was a British subject. Four Supreme Court Cases declare that to be a natural born citizen, both parents must be U.S. Citizens. The Constitution clearly states in Article II, section ii, paragraph 5, that “No person except a natural born Citizen . . shall be eligible to the Office of President” The Joint Chiefs have been duly informed by many letters from military personnel, and from lawyers, such as Dr. Orly Taitz. The Joint Chiefs have the opportunity and aide of the best legal counsel.

The Joint Chiefs therefore have knowingly sided with a usurper to the Presidency, and given him obedience as if he were the President of the United States.

In doing so they have violated their oaths to uphold the U.S. Constitution, and committed treason………

The Joint Chiefs of Staff should be worried of the dire punishment they will face, when they are one day convicted of treason against the United States of America for siding with the enemy and giving him aide and comfort.

The Uniform Code of Military Justice is quite specific that in such a case even the Joint Chiefs can be punished with death, on order of a military tribunal.

The Uniform Codes of Military Justice, on the crime of treason says under Article 906 — Espionage, section c:

A sentence of death may be adjudged by a court-martial for an offense under this section (article) only if the members unanimously find, beyond a reasonable doubt, one or more of the following aggravating factors:…………….

Air Force vet dedicates future to exposing Obama

August 28, 2011 Leave a comment

An Air Force veteran who was discharged from the service in a dramatically quick move last week after he challenged Barack Obama‘s eligibility to be president says he’s back in his home town in Nebraska, but his campaign to reveal the truth about the present occupant of the Oval Office is just beginning.

Daryn Moran was serving as a staff sergeant in the Air Force in Germany when he first became alarmed at Obama’s insistence on installing open homosexuality in the U.S. armed services. Then, as part of his research into that issue, he found out about the many questions that remain unanswered about Obama’s eligibility.

The result when he started asking for evidence?

A quick discharge from the military, a next-day flight home and a new status as a former member of the Air Force, as WND reported.

(snip)

A retired military officer, Cmdr. Charles Kerchner…, said, …

“The Joint Chiefs of Staff of our military should be taking action. They took a solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. It is now obvious that we have a domestic enemy of the Constitution in the Oval Office. The Joint Chiefs should call on Congress and arrange for a private, secret meeting with the key leaders of Congress and tell them that what is going on in our country (with the criminal activities in the White House exemplified with the placing of a forged Obama birth certificate onto the White House servers on 27 April 2011) is of great concern to them and that it is of great concern also to maintain the morale and integrity of our military and to their living up to their common core values and their oath to support and defend the Constitution.”

Air Force sergeant AWOL over ‘forged’ Obama document

Declares: ‘Arrest B. Obama or arrest me’ in dispute about presidential eligibility

“The Joint Chiefs of Staff of our military should be taking action. They took a solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. It is now obvious that we have a domestic enemy of the Constitution in the Oval Office.

He said the Joint Chiefs should give Congress up to 10 days to call for a congressional investigation of Obama, and if “the Congress does still does not act, then the Joint Chiefs of Staff should hold a public news conference and reveal that they have made a plea to Congress to act.”

According to the Air Force Times, military records show Moran is an ophthalmology technician in the 86th Medical Squadron. He previously served in the Marines.

Questions about Obama’s eligibility have been in the public arena since before his election, with numerous court cases that mostly have been dismissed on technical grounds. The issue has been presented to the U.S. Supreme Court several times.

However, Justice Clarence Thomas suggested the court was avoiding the issue.

Emmerich de Vattel, the renowed political philosopher, whose treatise, The Law of Nations, was the guiding legal authority of our Founding Fathers, when crafting the Constitution, described in succint and poignent words, the importance of the Constitution of any Republic, in Book I, chapter 30 of his work:

To attack the constitution of the state and to violate its laws, is a capital crime against society; and if those guilty of it are invested with authority, they add to this crime a perfidious abuse of the power with which they are instrusted.

The World – American Style by Michael S. Rozeff

The U.S. government has a known and explicit policy, discussed below, concerning Persian Gulf oil. The visible foreign results of this policy, so far, include the Gulf War of 1990, the subsequent sanctions on Iraq, the U.S. actions during the Iran-Iraq War, the U.S. attack and war on Iraq (2003-present), the U.S. sanctions against Iran, and now the U.S. war in Libya. This is not to say that these actions have been well thought out or have succeeded in their aims with respect to the government’s prime objective. In fact, blunders dominate the list.

The domestic results of this policy, so far, include such items as the Patriot Act, curtailment of various freedoms and rights, the Transportation Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, travel restrictions, financial restrictions, militarization of police forces, and vast invasions of privacy. Other results include the encouragement of terrorism, the war on terror, use of torture, abductions, and holding prisoners incommunicado for indefinite terms.

What then is this policy? A RAND document reviews the U.S. oil policy in the mid-East and associated regions. It points out (p. 60) that President Carter enunciated this policy on January 23, 1980 in his State of the Union Address:

“Let our position be absolutely clear: An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America, and such an assault will be repelled by any means necessary, including military force.”

Even before this, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff in September of 1978 issued a strategy assessment in which it wrote of “continuous access to petroleum resources” as priority #1 in the region, along with seeing that Israel survived. In 1979, the military put together a “Rapid Deployment Force (RDF), which soon gained full, unified command status as the U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM).”

Every President since Carter has supported this doctrine, added to it, strengthened it, expanded it, or implemented it by policy actions including making war.

Hence, there is no question that the U.S. considers the uninterrupted oil flow from this region as a vital interest. The U.S. has made war over Kuwait in 1990, in Iraq in this century, and now in Libya. It has gone into related areas such as Somalia, Yemen, and Afghanistan. It has confronted Iran for decades. It has armed and aided all sorts of dictatorial regimes in the region.
