Are "Reptilian Aliens" Controlling Earthly Events And Entering Our Political Domain Via High Officials?
Let's proceed further!
According to one review (by Michael Salia) of the book Alien World Order:
" Len Kasten provides a coherent account of the history and imperialistic activities of Reptilian extraterrestrials on Earth and the Milky Way galaxy over millennia, using the work of Robert Morning Sky, Stuart Swerdlow, Alex Collier, and other primary sources. The scope of Reptilian influence over human elites and society is breathtaking and provides an explanation for many of the historical ills afflicting humanity. Kasten peels back the layers of secrecy even further to reveal the dire situation we collectively face today--where our political leaders are vassals for imperialistic Reptilian aliens--and the need for an informed citizenry to take back their sovereign destiny."
Okay, first let's settle down and grasp that the possibility of an advanced reptilian (or "post-dinosauroid") species is not totally out of the question, Indeed, paleontologist Dale Russell - Curator of vertebrae fossils at the National Museums of Canada, actually arrived at a feasible advanced reptilian hominid, e.g.
This entity was based on, first, investigating an alter-paleohistory of what would have unfolded on Earth had the dinosaur-killing asteroid 65 million years ago, never struck. Russell argues that had the dinos then survived, they would have gotten smarter and also displaced the much smaller mammals then beginning to emerge. Ultimately, the evolution would have led to a "large brained, reptilian biped with enormous eyes, three -fingered hands and even a navel". (Source: 'The Extraterrestrial Encyclopedia', pp. 103-04) The latter also would have had to develop the capability for live birth, as opposed to egg laying.
But - is it rational to make a major leap from such possibility to claiming an advanced guard of Reptilian aliens is living among us - presumably arrived from distant planets - and interfering in our lives and politics? I somehow doubt it, though watching Kavanaugh intermittently bare his inner reptile yesterday makes one wonder.
Following on, if Kasten's arguments are to be believed, we on Earth have been lulled into electing Reptilian aliens or confirming and nominating their collaborators into high office, thereby influencing events. This had me wondering if the Kasten cult would even pin Pizzagate on the Reptilian overlords. But don't for a moment think that this crackpot conspiracy ideation is accepted by only a few. In fact, in a WaPo piece from 5 years ago (written by Philip Bump) we learn:
"As 12 million Americans "know," the United States government is run by lizard people (or, to be scientifically accurate, reptilians."
Don't howl with laughter yet. The best is yet to come. Breaking down the malarkey from one book by David Icke, Bump writes:
"Thousands of years ago, the reptilian beings [from the constellations Orion, Sirius, and Draco] intervened on planet Earth and began interbreeding with humans. Not physically, however, but rather through the manipulation of the human coding, or DNA. Icke states that it is no coincidence that humans have fundamental reptilian genetics within their brain."
First let's clarify that Sirius is not a constellation but a star. As for Orion and Draco let's try to grasp that all constellations are merely coincidental patterns of stars at widely differing distances. They do not form a coherent, bound whole, in other words. They are purely random, temporary configurations, on to which humans have superimposed imaginary images: bull, lion, crab, fish or whatever. Even as I write these words, the stars which make up the zodiacal constellations are speeding in different directions. There really is no such thing as a fixed star, on scales of cosmic time anyway. In about one hundred thousand years, none of the star patterns seen today will even remotely resemble a "Lion", or "Archer" or "Bull" or anything else
Second, this "fundamental reptilian" aspect simply refers to an ancient brain region left mostly intact by the process of evolution. No reptilian meddling needed.
Bump also lists the assorted attributes by which one can tell if a person has merged with or been influenced by a reptilian. The common signs (according to one source:
- predominance of green or hazel eyes that change color like a chameleon, but also blue eyes"
- true red or reddish hair"
- "low blood pressure"
- a sense of not belonging to the human race"
- "UFO connections"
- "love of space and science"
- ""unexplained scars on body"
- "capability to disrupt electrical appliances"
- "alien contacts"
- "deep compassion for fate of mankind"
So wait. I have 7 of the listed attributes, does that make me a reptilian alien? I seriously doubt it. (Janice does too.)
Bump goes on:
"Good list! So let's see if we can pinpoint our lizard overlords based on these hints. For example: Who has eyes that are green or hazel or blue but which may change to be different colors? Maybe you"
He then follows up by applying the criteria list to known politicos and ends up with the following lizard people: Barack Obama (who also has a knack for killing flies), Joe Biden, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Donald Rumsfeld.
As one examines the names and the purported reptilian evidence, it is easy to see it's all based on subjective dot connection (i.e. Obama is found to slap away often at flies, emulating the typical lizard). In other words, it doesn't add up to anything. My advice? Treat the Reptilian overlord conspiracy about the same way you'd treat Pizzagate.
Is Brett Kavanagh a Reptilian alien then? Nope. Just your garden variety, pussy-grabbing asshole who's hoping a bunch of R (for Republican, not reptile) assholes put him on the high court.

Senate Confirmation Hearing Descends Into Partisan Knife Fight In P.M. - As Kavanaugh Bawls
"BWAHAHAHHAA! Them Dems Is So Disgusting.....! WAAHHH!"
Question: When 11 angry, entitled white men with ‘R’ after their name channel their hate and frustrations into a heavyset female prosecutor to take down a fragile, female sex assault victim – so THEY don’t look bad- what do you get? Ans.: A Battle Axe!
And so it was Thursday that the Senate confirmation hearings for accused sexual molester Brett Kavanaugh descended into a full fledged farce, when the 11 male members passed on their responsibility for questions to Rachel Mitchell – a Maricopa County AZ prosecutor. The strategy in using this woman was clear: The Repukes wanted a battering ram – or even battle axe- to tear down the victim’s defenses and render looking like either a phony or fraud. It didn’t work! As MSNBC cohosts Lester Holt and Casey Hunt –put it, Mitchell didn’t lay so much as a mitten on courageous Christine Ford.
Mitchell’s dual role itself almost invited a kind of schizoid approach given she had to play both defense lawyer and prosecutor. The problem was that the “prosecutor” came out way too much when interviewing Dr. Ford and the defense lawyer came out way too much to favor Kavanaugh. In this way the whole event could be seen as one long grandstanding show designed to confer false credibility on “Booze ‘em& Bang ‘em” Brett. This in order to expedite an unholy rush to judgment,….errr ….confirmation of the arch liar and pussy grabber, for tomorrow.
So no wonder John Clune, a Boulder CO attorney for Deborah Ramirez referred to the Senate hearing bluntly:
In other words, just like the Warren Commission- concocted by LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover. But in this case, the lies and M.O. were exposed from the get go. This was especially in the P.M. session when the Reepturds and Kavanaugh dropped any pretense of an apolitical, non-partisan process and turned full rabid rat on the 10 Committee Democrats - depicting them as the uber villains.
Led by the likes of Southern Chauvinist Drama Queen Lindsey Graham - pitching his own hissy fits and squawking ‘mob rule” – even as he whined "this is the worst process I've ever seen". Etc. But we know that what he really meant was too such transparency and democracy had found its way through the hoopla and nonsense. But the whiny little bitch's biggest outburst was left for last, when he screamed in a high pitched, falsetto voice:
"Boy, so y'all really want power! I hope to God ya never get it!"
Totally failing to grasp, amidst his scripted convulsions, that HIS lot has failed to use ANY power, i.e. in checks and balances, to stop Trump's excesses. So yeah, someone with balls has to take the reins, Little Lindsey.
As for Janice's reaction to Graham's selective hysteria - well I dare not repeat it in a family -oriented blog. :(
candidate's high school years - unless red alarm bells go off as they did here. But those alarms delivered the justification for Grassley, Hatch and Co. to obfuscate and spin using their predominant numbers on the Committee.
But. Whoa, Nellie! The afternoon scene devolved into a full -on partisan knife fight, even eclipsing Lindsey Graham's drama queen displays. This as the 11 Reeps - unable to tolerate any further pussy footing - finally took the reins from Rachel Mitchell's hands, leaving her to sit and stew. Predictably, they literally went ape shit barking in rage at the Dems for their unseemly efforts to tear "a good man" (actually, Bill Clinton's chief inquisitor) down. Meanwhile, their boy toy Brett didn't help the situation by alternately going "livid and tearful" according to a Financial Times observer. Brett bawled and howled at various points how he'd never be able to coach his daughter's team again and his family had been dragged through the mud. Oh, and he might never be able to teach at Hah-vahd again, poor thing. Well, shoulda thought about that when you were a young, entitled punk at Georgetown Prep, mate.
The spectacle was the most maudlin and sickening since Edward Muskie was reduced to tears in a presidential campaign decades ago (he was the Dem VP pick at the time). By any standard, the unhinged drama on display this afternoon ought to sink Kavanaugh's chances - but don't bet on it. The Repukes lost all sense of shame as well as irony long ago when they opted to get into bed with Donnie Dotard - aka the pussy- grabber- in- chief.
The American people deserved much better than what they got today, but like the Warren Commission 54 years earlier, the powers- that- be believe the people must be treated as fragile infants for their own good. Thus, like the WC we got another fraud and farce, only this time for thankfully less money wasted in the end! That's a 'W' considering Kavanaugh's checkered past, as more voices have made his impacts on them known.
Yes, the Reeptards may ram this tainted, tear jerking scumball through tomorrow, but in the court of public opinion it will be a fail - and they will pay even more heavily in November.
Voting Matters, But Staying Engaged Matters More
Update - Sept. 29th:
It now appears GOP Senate Judiciary Committee member Jeff Flake has balked at being the 11th vote for the general Senate confirmation to go forward. Flake, after being confronted by two female activists in an elevator, has now requested that the FBI extend an investigation into Kavanaugh's HS background. Trump, incredibly, has likewise approved the move, giving the FBI a week to complete the investigation.
The "5G' Hype - If 5G Is So great Why Are So Many Mobilizing Active Resiustance?
5G, ...the "Fifth Generation" - putatively the greatest thing since sliced bread - expanding and realizing the "internet of things". SO you can communicate with your fridge, your car, your TV, anything - any device in the home you desire. . So why are so many not seeing it as such a benefit and are actively mobilized against it?
The essence of the problem roiling most communities, can be gleaned from the attached graphic. The manifestation of monstrous towers laden with cellular antennas has enraged many - even forcing a lot of towers to come down. Case in point? Residents of Denver's Riviera Apartment were astounded when they confronted a 30-foot tall green pole appearing a few feet in front of their building entrance. The unsightly contraption, installed by Verizon Communications Inc. was designed to improve telephone service in the area but residents complained loudly about the placement. Months later, it was gone.
But you can bet this is only the 'first shot' in a continuing resistance as in the months ahead millions of Americans encounter similar poles or notice antennas sprouting on utility poles, street lamps and traffic lights - and all over their neighborhoods. This is because all four national cellphone companies are pushing to build out their networks with a profusion of small local cells to keep their data hungry customers satisfied - oh, and lay the groundwork for the much ballyhooed fifth generation or 5G service.
But while their first line customers may be happy many other citizens aren't and that includes official in cities that don't want their locations looking like something out of a techie horror thriller. But never mind, more than 100,000 small cells are already wired up across the U.S. according to industry research firm S&P Global. In addition, state and federal policy makers are mostly backing the wireless carriers. Federal Communications Commission rules passed in March exempt small cell deployments from certain historic preservation and environmental reviews.
In other words, if intruding cell structures, polls are built near historic preservation sites - say a Civil War era home - or near a lake or special reservoir, there will be no need to review the proximity issues or effects. Further, a bill now in congress would deem small cell applications granted if local governments fail to act within 31 days. Dozens of state laws, as in the case of fracking (like here in Colo.) also restrict local government control over cell projects.
Despite these aggressive moves for implementation, the risks of 5G systems are becoming ever more apparent even as their environmental impacts are criticized. Truth be told, almost every 5G advance comes with a new set of security worries. The biggest concern by far is the expected flood of connected household devices- many of which have already been hacked (like child bedroom monitors) and also used in denial of service attacks. (Such as one in late 2016 that caused major services such as Netflix and Twitter to be unreachable for a day).
Experts also fear that - with 5 G- the telecommunications system itself will become so central to everyday life it will create an inviting huge target for malicious actors. There are also real worries that 5 G will make it easier for hackers to turn autonomous vehicles and implantable devices (e.g. pacemakers and Watchmen) into lethal weapons.)
According to Bruce Porter, chief information security officer at Expel Inc - a cyber security startup in Herndon VA:
"As 5G facilitates a vast expansion of networks and devices they will start to become large targets and ripe for attack. We have a fairly large problem ahead to figure out how to secure all the components of 5G".
Instilling more trepidation, U.S. vulnerability could grow if domestic companies lose the race with foreign companies to dominate 5G technology. (Especially if an American company for example, comes to rely extensively on Chinese technology)
Incredibly, many U.S. officials insist their approach to securing the 5G future is working so far, despite the fact there have been no real world, live stress tests on the system. According to one FCC Republican, Brendan Carr:
"It's a challenge. No way around it. But it's something everyone I've talked to is taking seriously".
Well, we'll see how seriously if an when the next central meridian, coronal mass ejection collides with planet Earth.

When Will 'Muricans Grasp The Next Stock Crash Is Around The Corner?
Retiring Soon? Plan for Market Downturns - WSJ
Wherein we read:
"The world's $164 trillion debt pile is bigger than at the height of the financial crisis a decade ago, the IMF has warned, sounding the alarm on excessive global borrowing. The fund said the private and public sectors urgently need to cut debt levels to improve the resilience of the global economy, and provide greater firefighting ability it things go wrong.
Fiscal stimulus to support demand is no longer the priority the IMF said Wednesday in a report published at its spring meetings in Washington. "
"World borrowing is more than twice the size of the value of goods and services produced and 225% of global gross domestic product. This is 12 percentage points higher than the peak of the previous financial crisis in 2009."
And the U.S. is singled out as a debt offender, e.g.
"Vitor Gaspar, the director of fiscal affairs at the IMF, singled out the U.S. for criticism, saying that it was the only advanced country that was not planning to reduce its debt pile - with the recent tax cuts keeping public borrowing high."
An even more somber warning: Americans (1 in 3 homeowners who earn less than $30,000/yr.) are now using home equity loans to cover their day to day expenses. ('Americans leveraging their homes to pay bills', Denver Post, Business, p. 5K, Sept. 23)
The inevitable return of these asset prices to their historical norms is likely to cause a sharp decline in household wealth and in the rate of investment in commercial real estate. If the P/E ratio returns to its historical average, the fall in share prices will amount to a $9 trillion loss across all U.S. households."

Social Investment Stipend or UBI - One of Them Is Needed In The Age of AI
In his recent major article in the WSJ Review section by Kai-Fu Lee:
The Human Promise of the AI Revolution - WSJ
We are informed that :
"Recent history has shown us just how fragile out political institutions and social fabric can be in the face of disruptive change. If we allow AI economics to run their natural course, the geopolitical tumult of recent years will look like child's play"
He is referring here to the rise of reactionary, authoritative governments - not only here in the U.S. with the Trumpite Cabal, but in Hungary, Poland, and Italy as well as Germany. For sure, no one in his or her right mind wants to see the ascendance of powerful and aggressive fascist dictators a la Mussolini and Hitler. But as Jay Bookman aptly noted('The New World Disorder Evident Here, Abroad', in The Baltimore Sun, December 15, 1997):
"The global economy has been constructed on the premise that government guarantees of security and protection must be avoided at all costs, because they discourage personal initiative. In times of crisis, however, that premise cannot be sustained politically. In times of trouble it is human nature to seek security and protection and to be drawn toward those who promise to provide it. That is how men such as Adolf Hitler, and Vladimir Ilyich Lenin came to power, with disastrous consequences."
Those are tough words to process but they are invaluable as a lesson in not forgetting the past, or how certain catastrophes arose. Lee and other authors, most notably Andrew Yang in his book 'The War On Normal People' make that case cogently and that the rise of AI in human job displacement would well and truly mark catastrophe . Or it might mark promise, if we get our economic heads screwed on straight.
Regarding the approaching economic cataclysm, Lee writes (ibid.):
"In the coming years people will watch as algorithms and robots easily outmaneuver them at tasks they've spent a lifetime mastering. I fear that this will lead to a crushing feeling of futility and obsolescence. At worst, it will lead people to question their own worth and what it means to be human."
Lee is referring to the fact too many people, especially Americans - but also likely many Germans- see our personal worth tied to the pursuit of money and success. This is how a capitalist, consumption society has programmed us and admittedly it is difficult to break that programming.
Lee's thesis in effect, comports very much with Yang's and we already know the major inroads AI is making to displace humans even now. Barely a year ago, for example, I cited a WSJ report ('Firms Leave The Bean Counting To The Robots') warning that AI -based robots would soon be taking over CFO and accounting work across the land. That would essentially displace all those humans currently holding such jobs and likely pulling down big bucks in salary. The article noted:
"One of Statoil ASA's newest employees, Roberta, spends her days in the energy firm's treasury department searching for missing payment information and sending out reminders. Her boss, Tor Stian Kjoolesdal, said Roberta's heavy orkload would improve overall efficiency in the group."
We then learned "Roberta doesn't have a last name, a face or arms. She is the first piece of robotic software to work in the Norwegian company's treasury department - part of Statoil's push to automation, robotics and artificial intelligence."
The piece went on to note that finance execs at Nokia Corp., Royal Dutch Shell and Orange SA were developing their own Robertas. Also:
"Two thirds of large global companies expect to automate some or all of their finance department tasks over the next two or three years, according to new research by Hackett Group Inc. Hacket's report is based on benchmark and performance studies at hundreds of large global companies."
The reason offered for the changes in the WSJ piece was straightforward , direct:
"The new technologies are designed to cut costs, liberate workers from time consuming repetitive tasks and - in many cases - reduce finance and treasury department employee numbers."
I cited Jim Hightower in the same blog post, who provided more inisght:
"With corporations socking away massive profits and the labor market still tight why are worker's wages stuck at miserly levels? One big reason is that corporate boards and CEOs have their heads stuck in a dreamy future. Nearly every economic sector is spending vast sums of money on workers p just not on human workers.
While few Americans are aware of it, bosses are investing in hordes of sophisticated autonomous robots powered by a cognitive technology called artificial intelligence. Instead of paying a decent wage to you, corporations are buying millions of these cheap, human-esque thinking machines in order to take a shocking number of jobs away - well, from you!"
"These activities would form the pillars of a new social contract, rewarding socially beneficial activities just as we now reward economically productive activities."

Basic Solar Electrodynamics Revisited
A prominence accompanies an X-1 class flare (extreme upper right) likely in a quadripolar sunspot group governed by anomalous electrodynamics.
The subject of electrodynamics is critically important in understanding the energetic, spatially localized events on the Sun, such as spicules, subflares and large flares, as well as CMEs (coronal mass ejections). This is particularly in connection with the more complex magnetohydrodynamics of solar active regions that spawn the localized events. All electrodynamics begins with the famous equations of James Clerk Maxwell. In general, Maxwell’s equations will be expressed in vector form:
Find the magnitude of the magnetic field B at a point inside the tube. What is the magnitude of the magnetic field B, at a point outside the tube?
