Something Very Strange About Katrina

The Tsunami that was Katrina
August 30, 2005

Ivan and Katrina

These are both very Russian sounding names. It has been established that the former Soviet Union (fSU) developed and boasted of weather modification technology during the 1960's and 70's with deployment against the United States coming in 1976 with the audible arrival of the woodpecker grid. These weather operations continue to this day.

I have posted this page FAR sooner than I would like to have. I would like to have had the post mortem of Katrina from the National Hurricane Center to work from as well as a little time/distance from the events of this week so that perspective can be maintained. I will continue to update and add to this page in the days ahead.

This nation has not faced an economic crisis like the one that Katrina will spark in the days and months ahead. But that is one of the reasons Katrina was guided along the path that we all watched. This path has resulted in maximum damage to the energy infrastructure, transportation infrastructure and to the psyche of those that are susceptible to further storms this year and in the years to follow. Oh New Orleans!

I fully expect one more 'event' this year to impact the United States. My gut feeling is that it will be an earthquake >7.7 in magnitude with insured losses to exceed $25 billion. That number should have been less but presently real estate is far overvalued.

Protect your family's wealth with precious metals as the cascading effects from this disaster and from poor government fiscal management, will have just begun to be felt.

My prayers go out to all who need a helping hand in the very difficult times ahead. The amount of social change that this storm has begun to unleash upon the fabric of American society has not yet been grasped by the media, but then what's new!

Absurd and Stupid 04.Sep.2005 12:18


Let's see, the Ruskies can control hurricanes, but only turn on their controls when someone happens to choose a slavic sounding name for the hurricane. That's stupid! So it the notion that Russia would even want to murder 100,000 Americans.

Now, you may believe what you posted, but that does not mean you do not need help from a professional.

I've felt ever since watching the sluggishness of this President in the aftermath of Katrina that he was behind the devastation just as he and his minions were behind 9/11.

Here are more links to check out about weather control:

let's not get too rediculous

If you want to cause mayhem - just defund your hurricane defense budget by cutting the corps of engineers levee improvement project.
Then, if that doesn't work, hire some thugs to "take out" a portion of the levee that was not very strong to begin with.
Then, hire more thugs to burn warehouses and facilities that have been deemed undesireable or have good insurance coverage. Then sit back and reap the fruits of destruction - Halliburton to the rescue!
With whom, and where has Cheney been this past week? Haven't heard a peep about him from the Bureau of Disinformation, I mean, mainstreamers.

Oil Storm: Reality or Fiction?
Does the TV Movie hit closer to the truth than most would like to admit?
Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) June 9, 2005 -- The FX Network aired the TV movie "Oil Storm" this past Sunday night. "America's lifeline has been severed" sets up the over all theme of this fictional movie that was shot in a documentary style.

It begins with a tropical storm that rips through the gulf coast and destroys not only homes and businesses of New Orleans, but also the drilling rigs just off of the coast, the refineries and the pipelines that oil tankers dock with to pump millions of barrels of oil. This destruction causes oil prices to immediately jump to $70 a barrel, then other problems occur, and eventually oil reaches $130 a barrel. This wreaks havoc on the stock market. Long lines of panic stricken people vie for gasoline as the trucking industry begins to shut down with gas prices rising above $7 per gallon. Store shelves empty as costs of transporting products and food are too high. Winter sets in and heating homes is far too expensive for many. Elderly and homeless deaths rise. Farmers loose subsidies to the cost of the military while nationwide frustration turns to riots and chaos.


"[W]eather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary... In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels."

- Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report


"Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... [T]echniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm."

- Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Adviser, Between Two Ages, Greenwood Publishing Group, 1992)


Methods of Artificial Weather Manipulation(AWM) help agriculture, devastate the enemy and control the world economy
Staff Reporter
Mar. 27, 2005:

"Many countries are mastering the science of weather control. As a matter of fact many experts predict that a war game is being played by major powers in the world to demonstrate their capabilities of weather control. Most of these initiatives are classified and shoved off from the public. The only way one can track these initiatives is to look at countries taking actions to shield against weather control experiments."

come on 05.Sep.2005 11:52


see this is the moronic shit that has almost completely made me stop going to portland imc.... if you want to help the situation, go out and help people instead of disseminating a bunch of hairbrained bullshit that has no actual basis in reality.... all discussions on weather warfare are simply hypothetical and the technology does not exist (read into H.A.A.R.P. and you see you've completely misunderstood what the science means).... even if it did, do you really think that Russia has any reason to attack us now? Russia, or most all countries at that, have no desire to slaughter innocent people, that's pretty much an American thing, suggesting so, is, well, dumb... you all gripe sometimesv about why America doesn't give a shit about anything you say, well maybe it's because you pull out any retarded material you read on the internet and believe it as fact.... RENSE.COM? A reliable sourse? give me a break.... some of you leftie crackpots are just as bad as the religious right who belive that the hurricane was caused because there were too many homos in New Orleans.... this is just proof that a little information in the hands of the stupid can be extremely dangerous... if you wanna pull out little pieces of info out of context from various sources (some reliable but some just plain stupid) and then heap them together in order to form a magical theory that is not actually rooted in the actual words from the sources you use, you might as well be a member of the church of scientology or believe in the Annunaki..... please from now on, keep your cranial dripplings to yourselves....


Chechnya 05.Sep.2005 12:04


Russia doesn't want to slaughter innocents? How about Chechnya? There's tens of thousands of civilian ghosts who would beg to differ. Your knee-jerk fraternity-boy tirade holds no water here. My skies are filled with chemtrails all winter long. Don't dare tell me weather modification is a hoax! I tend to think it's way possible the levies may have been dynamited deliberately. It sure blew Rove, Able Danger, and the Chicago Grand Jury indictments off the newspaper pages overnight. A new nuclear '911' event wasn't necessary. The NWO is nothing if not oppurtunistic. Don't ever say it's IMPOSSIBLE. Not with this crew of pirahnas.

well.... 05.Sep.2005 14:15


well, of course i believe that an intensive investigation into the possibility of the levee being bombed is extremely important (not that it will ever happen by those in charge).... it is not at all unheard of in our nation's history that we have sacrifized the poor to save the rich..... and i'm not saying that weather control could not be in the imaginations and thoughts of people especially the devils in charge right now in our country.... i'm just saying that if you think you are going to go out and blame the hurricane on the Russians, or the Koreans, or the boogyman, you are basically wasting everyone's time.... i'm suprised no one has said it was caused by the jews yet..... there is tragedy enough in the TRUTH of the fact that we have allowed an entire class in our country to be so ignored that in the event of a tradgedy this scale, the thought of saving those who didn't have the means to flee on their own never came up. Furthermore we need to be going after the polotitians, buisnessmen, and bigots who have shown that this country only cares for the rich minority and not the majority of regular folk and show that we are not going to take it anymore...

and please, if you want to argue that these idiotic web sites that people frequent should be constinatly regurgitated unto this forum of INDEPENDENT NEWS then I beg you to instead just go read those sites on your own time and get with the first person reporting of events, which is kind of what I thought the whole point of IMC was -- to get the truth from those who actually know, not from coorperate media, and from internet crackpots who write articles and idiotic theories that you and no one else has bothered to objectively analyze.... If you read the new orleans IMC page, you will find tons of important and wonderful articles and accounts of the hurricane as well as advice on how people can help out.... only on PDX IMC do we get nothing but people relaying what RENSE.COM says is true. You might as well simply be regurgitating what you read on FOX News for as much of an INDEPENDANT outlet for media you are cultivating. You are simply replacing one extreme perversion for another...

Chemtrails Comin Out Of The Coset? 05.Sep.2005 15:02

Chemtrails Coming
Out Of The Closet?
By William Thomas

Nearly seven years after extensive "lay downs" of lingering and spreading white plumes were first reported smearing skies over across North America, Europe is in an uproar and Washington could be close to coming clean about chemtrails.

At least the Bush White house will soon have a legitimate weather control agency to finally "launder" one of the biggest cons ever perpetrated.

Introduced in the US Senate on March 1, 2005, Bill S517 calls for a US "Weather Modification Advisory and Research Board" to officially commence operations in October 2005. When passed as expected, this law will make large-scale chemical alteration of the atmosphere legal across a formerly free and beautiful land called America.

It's already happening. Less than two weeks before the bill was introduced, Linda wrote from "up here in the mountains of northeast Georgia" of the worst spray day she had ever seen. "Not one day in the past two months have we had a blue sky with normal clouds," Linda wrote. Even normal clouds "are 'laced' with whatever the hell is coming out of those white planes that have no engine sounds, even when they fly low enough to see there is no printing anywhere on the planes."

Several years ago the US Air Force stated that it was repainting its silver aircraft white, and retrofitting its jet tanker fleet with "hush kits" to silence their engines.


Whatever fresh environmental disaster Bill S517 accomplishes, this bill will ease the way for admission of a project suspected by many and confirmed by air traffic controllers at America's biggest airports. When and if the US public demands that their government "do something" about the extreme weather pummeling their neighborhoods, Washington will be able to officially reply, "We are."

Intended to "develop and implement a comprehensive and coordinated national weather modification policy," the board is tasked with coordinating state and federal weather modification efforts. It's direct mandate is stepped-up research and development aimed at developing experimental "models, devices, equipment, materials, and processes" to change or control, "by artificial methods" the development of clouds and/or precipitation in the troposphere. This weather-forming region of the atmosphere lies between Earth's surface and the stratosphere, starting around 35,000 feet.

The federal weather modifiers will now directly oversee the cloud-seeding operations currently being carried out over dozens of states to increase rain and snowfall for irrigation, electrical power and winter recreation purposes. As droughts intensify under an onslaught of moisture-absorbing chemicals dispensed behind ozone-destroying jet tankers, and future towns wash away in sudden flash floods triggered by rain-inducing atmospheric tinkering, these unnatural disasters and other "inadvertent" effects of weather modification will be closely "studied" by the newly created board.

But no studies have been released on the implications of wide-scale alteration of regional atmospheric heat balances.

Large-scale weather modification is banned under the United Nations Environmental Modification Convention signed by Washington in 1970.


Meanwhile, recent heavy "Chemtrail" spraying over Portland, Oregon and Canada's west coast has eased off once again. Another long-time Chemtrail "hot zone", Santa Cruz, California continues reporting clear blue skies unmarked by the chemplanes' ugly scrawl.

As recently as May 2005, a Swiss resident sent photographs to Meria Heller's website, reporting: "Today was one of the heaviest Spraying in Switzerland ever."


Some Canadians also have their eyes wide open. in June 2005, large graffiti spray-painted on a major overpass in West Vancouver advised motorists: WAKE UP, LOOK UP, CHEMTRAILS ARE EVERYWHERE.


An active duty air force crew chief has described environmental combat missions already being flown by specially-outfitted C-130 Hercules transports, which can be reloaded, refueled and relaunched in just 10 minutes to continue their assault on violent storms afflicting US communities. Flown by regular air force pilots, these "science flights" include onboard meteorologists, who painstakingly log the results of each mission.

Big storm fronts and hurricanes require a vast amount of absorbent chemicals to reduce their destructive power. To achieve the fast turn-around times needed to complete their missions, flights of returning C-130s taxi to a stop and immediately commence refueling as the empty onboard spray canister is removed. as soon as the empty canister is clear of the aircraft, a waiting truck wheels a semi-trailer-size container of sky-seeding chemicals to the plane's lowered rear ramp, where it is slid inside on rails like a gigantic "soda dispenser".

The crew chief added that other spray missions spread (barium) chemtrails to facilitate 3D radar mapping of the entire continental United States. He also said that the air force has been spraying storm fronts "for a long time". The military's main interest, he added, is experimentation aimed at gaining control of the weather for military use.

Did the air force spray this year's first Caribbean hurricane, in which the western quadrant disintegrated just before making its Texas landfall? "There's no reason they wouldn't," the crew chief replied.

But C-130 turboprops would not necessarily be used to try to influence hurricanes that typically release more energy than all atomic arsenals combined. Referring to the 757s recently modified for aerial spraying, the crew chief told willthomas.net, "We've got them, but I can't talk about them."

He added that many people in the air force "are aware of William Thomas" and his reporting on chemtrails. The crew chief confirmed that this reporter "has it mostly right" concerning the application and purposes behind chemtrails. But would not elaborate on my reporting.


Meanwhile, the chemtrails controversy has taken Europe by storm following a series of articles by Swiss freelance journalist Gabriel Stetter in the German popular science magazine Raum+Zeit (Space and Time), circulation circa 50,000.

Stetter's first article, "White Skies" created a public relations nightmare for Greenpeace when it informed readers in January 2004 how "Thousands of people were thoroughly shocked when they realised, and were informed by Greenpeace in Germany, Switzerland and Austria that-for some reason or other-Greenpeace has no interest in the Chemtrail question whatsoever."

The Swiss government also came under public pressure to explain the checkerboards being painted in its skies. On March 5, 2004 the Environment Department in Berne, Switzerland responded to an inquiry by Rudolf Rechsteiner, Social Democratic member of parliament, admitting that "A number of ideas exist that show how it would be possible to reduce global warming by technical means, at least in the short term."

But these ideas, the government office hastened to add, "are no more than theoretical. We are not aware of any practical application of these methods, either at home or abroad."

Ten days later, Greenpeace Switzerland climate and transport expert Cyrill Studer wrote an internal memo assuring colleagues that while he had "heard of the chemtrails phenomenon," for the present, Greenpeace "will not be following up the theme of chemtrails."

Two reasons for inaction by Greenpeace climate change activists were given. First, Studer explained, "There is not a sufficiently solid scientific basis" for Greenpeace to risk its budget and reputation verifying this "supposed phenomenon". To do so, he added in his memo to Greenpeace staff, "would overstretch our capacities.Important elements of our climate campaign would suffer, particularly the promotion of energy efficiency and of renewable energies, or our active influence in present-day politics."

Outside Greenpeace's corporate offices, the controversy continued. On June 11 German Greenpeace spokeswoman Kristine Läger told concerned constituents:

The idea of reducing global warming by putting chemicals in the atmosphere has been around a long time. There are various proposals in this direction, suggesting the chemicals should be independently sprayed and that they should be mixed with the fuel of ordinary passenger aircraft. Whether in Germany such proposals have reached the point of actual realization is highly questionable. So far as we are aware there are no indications from research and observation of weather and climate that these so-called chemtrails exist. Nor are we aware of any project that has been realized in practice.. in all probability this is not happening.

But Gabriel Stetter believes that the Greenpeace "Rainbow Warriors" know all about the rainbows in the sky. They probably also know of geoengineering studies to reduce incoming sunlight and slow global warming issued by the National Academy of Sciences. "And they may even have taken a look at the Welsbach Patent," he writes. "But they have no idea what conclusions to draw from the chessboard pattern suspended in the Hamburg sky or the aluminium-enriched 'rainbows'.

"Supposing the word 'chemtrails' appeared in print in the Greenpeace Magazine," Stetter speculates. "How many tens of thousands of people more would look up into the sky and recognize that the supposedly Utopian "proposal" has long moved on via "spraying trials" to a systematic, long-term spreading of cloud cover over the whole of Europe?"

Back in Basel, Gabriel Stetter quoted unsourced opinion polls showing that in this "stronghold" of chemtrails believers, one in ten people "have already heard of them despite the media blackout. Several thousand people in the prosperous town at the bend in the Rhine know that the chemtrails phenomenon suggests that something is seriously wrong."

Among these Swiss chemtrails activists, he explained, "are well-to-do people, who because of their environmental awareness have been for a long time, in some cases for decades, members of Greenpeace."

Not any more.

"Veteran anti-nuclear activists, campaigners for animal welfare or against electrosmog-in their alarm they had all turned to Greenpeace because of the chemtrails, which are visible everywhere in the skies above Basel. But a painful experience awaited all of them. They were palmed off with the same unsatisfactory answers that we have by now grown tired of hearing. The consequence drawn by these elderly, well-to-do activists from Greenpeace's lack of interest was the immediate cancellation of membership of many years, the withdrawal of legacies, and the withholding of payments to Greenpeace until further notice."

As Brian Holmes notes on his website, www.holmestead.ca, the October 2004 issue #131 of the Raum + Zeit contained many pages of letters from readers responding positively to Stetter's first article in issue #127. "Many of these letters are illustrated with color photographs supplied by the readers themselves."

Former six-year a board member of Greenpeace Germany, Monika Griefahn chaired the Committee for Culture and Media of the Federal German Parliament when she replied to a letter from two chemtrails dissenters in July 2004, stating, "I am in basic agreement with your concerns. Instead of making a concerted and determined effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the world, experiments of various kinds are being carried out in the earth's atmosphere in order to cure the symptoms."

After assuring her correspondents, "I share your concern over the use of aluminium or barium compounds which have a considerable toxic potential," the parliamentarian went on to say, "however, so far as I am aware the extent of their use is so far minimal."

"At last!" Stetter announced in the German science magazine. "There we have it. In the skies of Germany, so Social Democratic member of Parliament Monika Griefahn tells us, aluminium and barium compounds are being spread just as tens of thousands of concerned citizens have observed, documented and bitterly deplored."

Thanking the Honorable Griefahn her for her courage, Stetter suggested, "Maybe one day statues of politicians like Monika Griefahn or the equally plucky US Congressman Dennis Kucinich will adorn in marble splendor the squares of newly verdant German or American cities."

That would be nice.

But the public outcry in Europe will have to spread to North America if we are to stop this massive, illegal and continuing air and atmospheric pollution.
