I suppose you could be wondering: “What set George off on his detective kick this morning?” Well to tell the truth it was a note from long-time reader/subscriber JC who offered a longish ramble, which I will comment on as it goes….so you won’t have to scroll up and down…
“It seems you are the Chief Detective gathering all the information from all us deputies out there. Please excuse it if occasionally I send stuff that is goofy (a technical term) , but that is why you are the Chief Detective and we are the Deputies. Some of the stuff may be way out there and totally fiction, but just keep it on the that big white board in your head and see if when this complex puzzle comes together if these extra crazy pieces fit anywhere. A few things that bother me as in “that does not make sense” or “that is suspicious” or “that is weird”. ”
No sweat. Even though I don’t have time to respond to every email that comes in, I do manage to read most everything. But some stories, like the crap about the US and Chinese navy going after UFO’s off San Francisco? Round file. Problem is sorting out the gems from the dirt most days…
“This part is in reaction to your article today about a spaceship over a diamond mine. Spielberg’s last Indiana Jones movie, Cowboys & Aliens. The story line did not follow any of the previous Indiana Jones movies. Aliens & Indiana Jones? Aliens beaming up gold? What is that about? And nasty aliens at that. The timing, 2011, well that is a coincidence. It seems the picture today in your blog of the spaceship above a diamond mine is similar to the movie. Is the Movie the message? The blurb earlier this year from George Lucas to the Canadian comedian Seth Rogan and Spielberg about the end of the world. The rumors about anatomical gold and aliens (I wonder what Martin Armstrong or Jim Sinclair would say about that). The information that almost every large culture in history on earth valued gold yet it is not useful as a tool. Could diamonds have a similar value? I am not sure, but there may be a shortage of carbon elsewhere in the universe. Certainly diamonds have unique qualities (besides getting women to say yes to almost anything – the only substance known on Earth to have such an effect) (maybe aliens have the same problem, Mrs. Alien? Oh Crap, she is mad at me again, I need another Earth diamond). “
You aren’t the only reader to notice that as soon as we did our chat with the (apparently) PTB fellow I hear from now and then, the Christian Science Monitor came out with a diamond story, and then this UFO diamond mine-related story popped.
Per the (apparent) PTB dude, the reason that DeBeers will never go dumping diamonds on the global market is that they presently enjoy something like fiat currency status. And, all the Russians having lots of diamonds does is let them keep DeBeers checkmated in a sense. But neither party has a real incentive to trash strong diamond prices. Stability…kind of like mutual assured destruction (MAD) policy worked out like in the cold war. Neither party wants to have a pocket full of gravel…so we sit back and wait for some pricing brinksmanship as a possible buying opportunity.
“Yesterday was a bright and sunny day with only a few clouds, and the normal amount of chem trails. I looked up and saw in one of the cloud a darker gray area, as in distinctly darker. It kind of looked like smoke that a burning tire would put out except it was well up in the clouds, it was roughly oval but dispersed like a small cloud, there was no lingering trail of smoke as if it was smoke that came up from a fire on the ground. It kind of looked like a dark gray mini cloud in a normal white cloud. Nowhere else in the sky was there any gray clouds, just this one. And it was stationary. I was watching for about 20 seconds, and I was distracted for about 5 seconds as my dog went after a chicken. I looked back and the gray cloud was gone but the white cloud was still there. I mean gone as in nothing was there. This also happened about 2 months ago while I was driving. I saw a strange grey patch of cloud (not an object), and I came around a turn and it was not in the sky. I stopped and got out to look, but nothing. This is when the monkey mind kicks in and comes up with a ridiculous explanation of the elusive obvious. I can not figure out why NJ gets an abundance of chem trails, but we have been getting pounded all year (have pictures and can prove it). Then about 2 weeks ago, the chem trails stopped for 5 days, then started again, then stopped for a few days, then started again. Could it be that chem trails help in cloaking (that is of course if chem trails and/or cloaking even exist) ? ”
No…my best guess is chemtrails are layers of chaff (radio reflective crap) used to help with the global tomography program and the operation of HAARP and related atmospheric heaters around the world. That makes as much sense, as anything. As for the UFO part? Trans dimensional is the likely travel mechanism, clicking into another parallel dimension and reappears wherever. IF the chemtrails interfered with that [possible, but you need to read a lot about etheric energy to really grok this stuff] then sure, it could be a form of earth defense.
Pragmatically? Makes fine scripts and stories and idea candy. But it’s not tradable, investable, or marketable so screw it. Don’t waste time you could be prepping and getting ahead on brain candy that results in a kind of mental diabetic state unable to distinguish hard/tradable/investable yada yada from trash.
“Another question, why would anybody spend a huge amount of money on chem trails if there is going to be large catastrophic earth changes in the next 6 months? Come on George, if you were the evil greedy Darth Vader of the world, why would you spend billions on chem trails if a coastal event and/or EMP will change everything. Seems a waste of money. Better to be building underground shelters and storing up vintage wine and art masterpieces. Yes chem trails can manipulate the weather. But who gives a crap about NJ weather, and every day for almost a year? This does not make sense. OK, maybe they are trying to kill us, but investing in McDonalds and making a Big Mac less expensive will do the job and you make a profit. And again if you were Darth Vader (I call it the Darth Vader rule), why spend millions to kill us, just release a germ for a few bucks. Again, it does not make sense. ‘
Well, there is one possibility that we haven’t talked about: What IF all this space stuff was being backed by a cabal of multinationals in order to launch servers into space? Go ahead…ask…
“Why, George, would servers in space be important?”
You don’t get it, do you? Look, above the Kármán line (62 miles up) and you will see the ultimate corporatist/globalist wet dream. Which is?
A place beyond the regulatory authority of ground-based governments!
You seeing it yet? Putting computing in the Cloud is just the first step. Putting servers actually into space means that no government on Earth could claim (legally) authority.
You’ll notice that the ground-base governments have had a few problems with tax avoidance? That changed with the ScotiaBank decisions of the middle 1980′s and helped clean up drug money which had been going to the Caymans and such, but even more curiously, the crackdown on 3% up to 1% types came recently with the tax deals with the Swiss.
Every country has its leverage points. For the Swiss it might be trade, and for the Caymans, might be tourism. But you see it? No where on Earth is really a safe haven any more.
Ergo, the answer is obvious. Make computing (hence transacting) a non-local event and – just to make the point – have the actual transaction-matching occur in space…
Which would explain what’s on the back-side of the moon. A previous civilization’s server farm.
Or….just dashing off story and novel ideas here…it would sure be interesting if the Supreme Ones showed up and wanted a piece of the space-based server farms as their tax base…
“Just my rambling for today. ”
Mine, too, but there’s a good screenplay in there somewhere.
“It would be really cool to make your new e- book into MP3 format (hint hint). ‘
Yep – I plan to record it this weekend…It will only be available with direct sales from this site, not on Amazon because I can’t figure out how to set up their Author Central deal so I can have it download both the book and companion audio file… but maybe with another call to tech support.
And maybe I’ll ask if Jeff Bezos is planning a server in space while I’ve got ‘em on the line… Notice how Iridium has quietly slid to the background? That could be a tax-free cloud, I’m telling yah at least for eproduct which would be delivered from space. I can see it ahead: Apple, Amazon, and MSFT putting servers in space, lol…..
New Web Bot Run Cometh
Oh…yes….worthy of note: Clif’s MAYBE got a new bot run in the works. I write MAYBE because it has been drifting in and out of focus over on his website. Middle October last heard, which would be damn useful. But, personal events intrude, so just keep an eye open for it. And there are plenty of issues like memeering, server hassles, time to dissect the data…all that crap. But we will see…
Jonathan’s the Pyschic’s Hint
Get these once in a while:
“This mornings psychic message. “Valinox” google that up comes valinox nucleaire. something about france and china nuclear …… ? ”
We’ll see….24-48 hours should tell…but remember who told you.
(Management classes note: If it happens, it was ME. If it doesn’t it was Jonathan. In government this is plausible deniability. See how this works? See how I survived in corpworld? Being an asshole pays well! The bigger, the more. Got it?)
Am I a Grand Father?
Don’t know yet…as of press time, labor was expected overnight and I suppose I’ll find out. Still, it would be a remarkable Universe laughing if the kid showed up on the first day of Spawn, though after yesterday’s column.
I’d call and ask, but there’s no discernable tax angle for grandparenting. So they’ll call when they can.
I wonder if there’s a standard messaging system for the arrival of a grandchild? You know, like the weather service uses the METAR format.
Something like: GFIL F 07.3 >02/5 1209181320 Charli
Grandfather in-law [to] female [weight] 7 pounds 3 oz., [health check] Apgar 2, date and time stamp and naming convention. Might append with the SSN, LOL since govt is so anxious to put a number to all of our heads, so to speak.
No? Monkey mind on too much bean this morning, then.
Nevertheless I confess to giving myself an APGAR every morning as I write since it’s short for appearance, pulse, grimace, activity, and respiration. I some mornings add the ‘a’ suffix for “awake.” Most mornings I at least ace the grimace part.
You know, of course, this means the National Bank of Dad will be opening a related company: National Bank of Grandparents.
Letters We Like to Receive…
From Claudia, a long time reader:
“George, I am taking a free class offered by Princeton University on The World from 1300. One of the discussion forums was on Economics. They were discussing Liberalism vs Keynesianism. I had to put myself in the discussion and talk about Nikolai Kondratiev. I have become your pupil as well once I saw the thread unfold. It was if no other thought was possible and I know that is the way it is taught to a larger extent. This is a fascinating class so far and there are 75,000 people around the world enrolled in the class so discussions can get lively. It is amazing to me that people can not see the real possiblity of Kondratiev. Regardless I am adding a post from on of my class members. I have never figured out how to spend my way out of debt and I don’t see how the govenment can do it either. Here is the post “ I surmise that Keynes was right. The stimulus should have been bigger and the repeal of financial regulations throughout the past few decades, such as blowing off the “net capital rule,” set us up for failure.” While the last half is true, we were set up for failure, I still don’t think it makes Keynes right. “ Just wanted to share some exciting conversation going on right now. Thanks for giving me knowledge! ”
Yes, that’s what we do – sort of. But just so we’re clear on something: I don’t give knowledge. I write what (near as I can get to it) the truth. People either take or reject it. Knowledge is something you have to make up your mind to “get” – which you have.
Knowledge is not a lazy person’s game. None of that put the book under your pillow and expect to absorb it stuff works. Programming the world’s finest portable computer still takes a little effort.
Just most people can’t believe they already own it, and it’s safely stored between your ears. No OS updates, either. All open-source, though some scoundrels try to make you think you need to pay for updates… T’ain’t rue. Yet.

A Call from the PTB
How would you handle it – as a reporter/journalist – if the PowersThatBe’s representative just called you out of the blue and explained a “few things you need to know” to “keep you in the game”? Well, the phone rang on Thursday last week and a familiar voice explained it was time for one of our periodic chats. But before we get into the substance of that, a trip through a few headlines are in order first…and a look at the financial charts to see how things are moving since our mid-week look-see. Which was $40-billion a month in soft money printing which explains why gold may be headed to first the $2250 area and…if that’s passed…maybe $3,100 in the next year or two.
Safer Computing: Getting Your Cookies Off
It has been a while since I roared the praises of the Maxa Cookie Manager which you can download and install for a free test drive by clicking here.
To upgrade from the demo to full working is still less than $30 (During their Spring Sale) and one heck of a bargain at that, if I do say so.
