UN warns on food security as prices hit six-month high … Food prices around the world jumped by 1.4pc in September to a six-month high, the United Nations said, as the severe US drought cut grain harvests. Rabobank thinks the consumer impact could be less painful this time around compared to 2008, when there were severe shortages of wheat and rice. That is because today's shortages are being seen more in crops used as animal feed, such as corn and soybeans. None the less, analysts expect concerns over food security to remain at the fore, given the long-term upwards trend in commodity prices and the risks posed by the volatile global climate. – UK Telegraph
Dominant social theme: Scarcity abounds …
Free-market Analysis: The volatile global climate? It's enough to make someone believe in weather control via HAARP!
That's how elite scarcity memes work, after all. Say the power elite wants to create a perception of energy scarcity … We've written about this in the past.
First, Tavistock or some other elite promotional think tank comes up with a dominant social theme like Peak Oil. Then those involved with the promotion set about making it into a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy.
In the case of Peak Oil, they do so by declaring much of the world off-limits to oil exploration and by turning areas where there is obvious oil into war zones. (The Middle East comes to mind.)
But do we see the same process at work when it comes to elite scarcity promotions concerning air, food and water? Possibly so. Here's something from the entry on HAARP in Wikipedia:
High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced
Built by BAE Advanced Technologies (BAEAT), its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. The HAARP program operates a major sub-arctic facility, named the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force–owned site near Gakona, Alaska.
The most prominent instrument at the HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high-power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency (HF) band. The IRI is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere. Other instruments, such as a VHF and a UHF radar, a fluxgate magnetometer, a digisonde, and an induction magnetometer, are used to study the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
Work on the HAARP Station began in 1993. The current working IRI was completed in 2007, and its prime contractor was BAE Systems Advanced Technologies. As of 2008, HAARP had incurred around $250 million in tax-funded construction and operating costs.
HAARP has been blamed by conspiracy theorists for a range of events, including numerous natural disasters. Various scientists have commented that HAARP is an attractive target for conspiracy theorists because according to computer scientist David Naiditch, "its purpose seems deeply mysterious to the scientifically uninformed".
Now, how much of this do you understand, dear reader? What leaps out at us is that the Alaskan facility cost US$250 million and that DARPA is involved.
In other words, HAARP is a military project. And then there is this, from the UN, a treaty: "Convention on the prohibition of military or any other hostile use of environmental modification techniques."
You can see the text here: http://treaties.un.org/.
Why does the UN need a treaty against weather warfare if technology to create or manipulate weather, earthquakes, etc. doesn't exist?
Senator Claiborne Pell (D-R.I.) believed that the Pentagon had manipulated weather during the Vietnam War. He wrote about his suspicions in an editorial entitled, "United States and Other World Powers Should Outlaw Tampering With Weather for Use as War Weapon." It appeared in The Providence Journal-Bulletin in 1975, excerpted as follows:
The U.S. and other world powers should sign a treaty to outlaw the tampering with weather as an instrument of war. It may seem farfetched to think of using weather as a weapon − but I'm convinced that the U.S. did, in fact, use rainmaking techniques as a weapon of war in Southeast Asia.
We need a treaty now to prevent such actions − before the military leaders of the world start directing storms, manipulating climates, and inducing earthquakes against their enemies. The basic idea of environmental warfare is simple − if a nation can learn to trigger natural events it can inflict terrible damage on an enemy through rainfall, flooding, tidal waves, earthquakes, and even climate changes that could devastate an enemy nation's agriculture.
The UN treaty referred to above came into force three years after Pell wrote his editorial, with 32 signatory countries. The Wikipedia article refers to those who think weather warfare is possible as "conspiracy theorists." Count Senator Pell among them, along with the signatories to the UN Treaty.
Count Jesse Ventura a believer, as well. Here's a review by Sterling D. Allan in "Pure Energy Systems News" (Dec. 27, 2009) of an episode of Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" television show …
In his series, movie star, professional wrestler, former Navy SEAL and former Minnesota governor, Jesse Ventura and his team take on HAARP, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.
The official story of what the giga-watt broadcasting antennae array outside Gakona, Alaska is [is] that it is for scientific research, primarily for communication studies: "a premier facility for the study of ionospheric physics and radio science," according to their official website.
"Why all the secrecy, then?" asks Ventura. And "Why is the Army running the place?" The facility barred him from having access, even though he is a former governor and Navy SEAL.
The evidence that Ventura and his team uncover points to the facility actually being a weapon, with the ability to take down aircraft, manipulate weather (which is supposed to be illegal) and control your mind. The segment illustrated both the weather control and the mind control capabilities using much lower-power variations.
Matt Imber asks and [sic] interesting question. "Where are they getting all the energy to run that place?" Noting that there are no apparent over-land transmission lines, he wonders if maybe they don't have some kind of zero point energy or other exotic sequestered technology providing power.
One of the people in the show mentioned being involved in setting up some kind of coal power component. Was that what they told the workers to hide another method? The aerial views shown on Ventura's show don't show any smoke stacks putting out smoke or steam.
What do we make of all this? … Well, there does seem to be evidence that the US military (and other countries, too) have the ability to influence weather – though how far that capability goes is obviously up for debate.
We also know that food, water and energy scarcities are a big part of elite propaganda. The dominant social themes are intended to frighten people into giving up power and wealth to pre-fabricated globalist enterprises such as the UN, IMF, World Bank, etc.
We want to take time to mention right here that food scarcity is a horrible reality in many developing countries. This article is focused on speculation that food shortages could be coming to so-called First World countries, and that these quasi-famines could be deliberately implemented …
Far-fetched? We monitor the mainstream media for this sort of chatter and when it comes to these areas there is no doubt the mainstream is quite focused on sending a message of alarm and scarcity. Over and over these days we hear that farmland is the best investment in the world and that the world's fresh-water aquifers are being drained.
Elite promotions, as noted above, tend to be rolled out thematically, but usually those behind them attempt to buttress them by making reality seem to conform.
After a point, from an investment standpoint, the reality ceases to matter. If those who want to promote scarcity have a way of creating it, then reality and promotional meme merge. This is why elite promotions can be extraordinarily profitable and why recognizing them and participating in them financially can add to your wallet.
On the other hand, what we call the Internet Reformation has exposed elite paradigms and punctured elite scarcity promotions. Global warming, for instance, has been dealt a near mortal blow. Those who invested thus far in various global warming corporate and business spin-offs have not necessarily fared well.
In the 20th century, one could invest relatively fearlessly if one understood an elite meme and could figure out how to "play it." But in the 21st century such investments are neither clear-cut nor guaranteed.
It could be that farmland is indeed a most promising investment and that weather is in some way being manipulated to support this perception. And yet, the Internet over time might expose the food scarcity meme as an elaborate elite charade in line with the false presentations of Peak Oil and global warming. Time will tell …
