Retired NORAD Officer's New Book Predicts a Tentative Worldwide UFO Display on October 13, 2010 … A newly-published book by a retired NORAD officer predicts October 13, 2010 as the tentative date for a fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles to hover for hours over the earth's principal cities. Author says the event to be the first in a series intended to avert a planetary catastrophe resulting from increasing levels of carbon-dioxide in the earth's atmosphere dangerously approaching a "critical mass." – Yahoo
Dominant Social Theme: Aliens are concerned about global warming, too.
Free-Market Analysis: We were going to write an article about Afghanistan, which is not going especially well for the West, when our collective concentration was entirely ruined by a feedbacker who forwarded to us the article excerpted above. It's been around almost a month now, but we hadn't noticed it before. It certainly fits right into the "aliens among us" meme that we have been covering in some detail as of late.
We have received some pushback on the coverage of this dominant social theme, but those with whom we are privileged to converse (our insightful feedbackers, mostly) have been remarkably tolerant about our continued coverage, finding it in some cases nearly as noteworthy as we do. We are reporting on it not out of a lust for sensationalism or for the sake of amusement but because we find this particular promotion (that is what it is) to be highly disturbing.
There may be aliens "out there" and they may visit earth at some point, but the idea that they will visit RIGHT NOW, at this particular juncture and (in this case) to help humankind deal with the catastrophe of a "critical mass" of atmospheric carbon-dioxide is from our viewpoint cynical in the extreme.
This combining of the global warming meme with alien visitations is especially noteworthy. In fact, it doesn't seem so very effective now, but that is only because the global warming promotion has subsided. What seems to have happened, in our view, (as regards global warming anyway) was that this book was well into its formative stage when the "warmist" controversy blew up. Thus, what seems somewhat ludicrous today (to anyone who doesn't believe in manmade global warming) was actually supposed to be quite convincing, assuming that the elite had been able to pull off the anthropogenic warming scam.
What is also unsettling about this article is that while it was initially a press release, it was picked up at Yahoo.com and recast, partially, as an article. (This may be standard practice, but, if so, we are unfamiliar with it.) The item is also the product of an Air Force officer, and other Air Force officers are barnstorming the US (as we pointed out yesterday) with revelations of bright lights manipulating nuclear missiles some 30 years ago. Here's some more from the release:
A newly-published 352-page book by a retired Air Force officer, Stanley A. Fulham, tentatively predicts October 13, 2010 as the date for a massive UFO display over the world's principal cities. According to the author, the aliens will neither land nor communicate on that date; they are aware from eons of experience with other planets in similar conditions their sudden intervention would cause fear and panic.
The book, Challenges of Change (3rd ed.), reports this event will be the initial interaction in a process leading to mankind's acceptance of the alien reality and technologies for the removal of poisonous gases from the earth's atmosphere in 2015, if not sooner.
The author draws upon his military experience with the UFO phenomenon dating back to WW2, and later, with NORAD and his subsequent life-long association with a senior NORAD intelligence officer who provided him a wealth of historical data relating to NORAD's experience with the UFO/alien reality which has never been revealed to the public. In the military's view, as conveyed to and understood by Fulham, the public is not yet ready to accept an alien reality.
As we have noted before, we have no direct evidence that the "aliens among us" meme is a fear-based promotion of the Anglo-American elite. In fact, the elite in organizing its promotions can often count on a degree of spontaneous cooperation given that the West's social, academic and media order has already been organized to be receptive to such campaigns.
But when trying to divine the tea-leaves regarding such efforts, we look for coordination of messaging, timeliness, authoritativeness and, often, a combining of different promotional elements together. To say we have noticed an uptick in this particular promotion – what we consider to be a promotion anyway – would be something of an understatement. In the case of "Challenges of Change," Fulham cleverly combines the global warming meme together with his overarching "aliens among us" theme for a kind of promotional "twofer." Sure it may be serendipity – but that's probably not the word we'd want to use to describe it.
We keep searching for a quote we read at the beginning of this decade from a higher-up at the British socialist Fabian Society. We haven't yet located it but as we recall, it was a frank warning that the initial decades of the 21st century were going to be ones of "exceptionally" fast-moving change. We think we see signs of that, and most of the change of course is being initiated and directed in our view by a generational and familial, Anglo-American power elite. The elite seeks to move the world toward increased global governance and uses fear-based promotions to drain people of wealth and convince them to give up personal power to global institutions that have been developed as receptacles for that purpose.
The "aliens among us" meme and other such promotions (if that is indeed what they are) can be effective even without being fully realized. The fear and confusion generated by such campaigns is helpful from psy-ops standpoint and makes a nervous and worried population more amenable to authoritarian solutions that the elite might wish to propose and implement. For these Air Force officers then, especially if they are in cahoots to disseminate misinformation, it is "Mission Accomplished" even if their observations are eventually debunked or their predictions don't occur.
