I receive e-mails all the time from listeners who want to turn me on to new television shows that they want me to comment on. The Netflix show “Stranger Things” was a recommendation from a listener which turned out to be a reason to re-examine the Montauk case. I just started watching the Exorcist TV series and Designated Survivor.
Both the Exorcist and Designated Survivor are well done and are chilling. The Exorcist is of course, terrifying because of its depiction of demonic exorcisms, However, Designated Survivor brings its own scares because it has all the nuances of a show that is destined to become a bit of precognitive approximation where the revelation of the method appears to be a blatant understatement.
The show appears to be a dark funhouse mirror version of America’s paranoid security state.
In the United States, a designated survivor (or designated successor) is an individual in the presidential line of succession, usually a member of the United States Cabinet, who is arranged to be at a physically distant, secure, and undisclosed location when the President and the country’s other top leaders (e.g., Vice President and Cabinet members) are gathered at a single location, such as during State of the Union addresses and presidential inaugurations.
This is intended to guarantee continuity of government in the event of a catastrophic occurrence that kills the President and many officials in the presidential line of succession. If such an event occurred, killing both the President and Vice President, the surviving official highest in the line, possibly the designated survivor, would become the acting President of the United States under the Presidential Succession Act.
Well, the plot of the TV show deals with this possibility. On the night of the State of the Union address, an explosion claims the lives of the President and all members of his Cabinet except for U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Tom Kirkman, who has been named the designated survivor. Kirkman, who is played by actor Kiefer Sutherland, is immediately sworn in as President, unaware that the attack is just the beginning of what is to come.
If this show became a reality, the country would be forced into a bleak constitutional crisis.
The show is a conspiracy theorist nightmare with thoughts of backroom deals and dirty bombs becoming a common occurrence in the country.
Dirty bombs, also known as radiological dispersal devices (RDDs), aren’t actually nuclear weapons. Though they distribute a small amount of radioactive material upon detonation, their blast is far deadlier, and most people exposed to the radioactive blast wouldn’t receive a lethal dose.
According to a recent report from the Nuclear Threat Initiative, a dirty bomb “would not cause catastrophic levels of death and injury” but “could leave billions of dollars of damage due to the costs of evacuation, relocation, and cleanup,” contributing to the weapons’ reputation as “weapons of mass disruption.”
“Recent reports out of Iraq warn that Islamic State extremists may have already stolen enough material to build a [dirty] bomb that could contaminate major portions of a city and cost billions of dollars in damage,” the report states.
Experts agree that terrorists are more likely to use a dirty bomb than other radioactive devices because dirty bombs are less technically complicated to build and require materials that are relatively easy to obtain.
A dirty bomb detonated in a major city can turn several buildings and streets into ghost towns. People simply won’t be able to return to work, or to shop, or even their homes downtown, for quite some time, possibly several years, due to contamination by dangerously high levels of radiation.
Terrorists could shut down Wall Street indefinitely with just one dirty bomb. They could also bring in nuclear material to make these dirty bombs in many highly-populated cities.
Now you may ask yourself why, just out of nowhere am I concerned with dirty bombs?
Well, it isn’t because I have been watching, Designated Survivor. It is because of an event that happened over Denver, Colorado yesterday that has me thinking some very frightening things.
When I was perusing my Facebook today, I had a few listeners tell me that yesterday they saw flying over Denver, Colorado a strange white plane that was leaving behind a chemtrail. I merely thought it was just a simple plane chemtrail sighting and did not understand why it was such a troubling issue.
That is until I found out that the mysterious white plane was flying in multiple circles over Denver.
I contacted KMGH-TV Channel 7 in Denver to find out exactly what was happening and why this plane was circling over the city.
The white unknown aircraft circled over Denver, Wednesday morning.
Channel 7 News or Denver News 7 reported that they were tracking a flight named IRON99 as it traversed from California over the Pacific. It traveled over the Rocky Mountains and eventually over the Denver metro area where it flew in circles leaving behind a large white trail.
Its arrival over the Denver metro is what prompted questions from a host of locals residents who saw it circling, questioning what it might have been doing. Visually, the plane circled in a racetrack-style oval shape over the City of Denver at roughly 32,000 feet several times.
After spending time making its loops, the aircraft then took off in a direct path to Oklahoma, without any record of stopping. It was reported that the plane finally landed at Tinker Air Force Base.
I told a desk reporter at Channel 7 that the plane wasn’t all that mysterious. A simple check of call sign Iron 99 gave me a mountain of information about the aircraft.
The plane that was circling Denver leaving a chemtrail was an E-6B Mercury or what has been called a “Doomsday Plane.”
The use of “Iron 99” is also one of the radio call signs of the VQ-3 “Ironmen”, a naval aviation squadron of the United States Navy based at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. This explains why the plane landed there, but what isn’t being explained is why the plane circled Denver for as long as it did and why the FAA and the Denver International Airport did not acknowledge the plane was flying over the area in the first place.
Code-named, Looking Glass, it is United States Strategic Command’s Airborne Command Post, designed to take over in case the Global Operations Center, located at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, is destroyed or incapable of communicating with strategic forces. The term “looking glass” is used because it “mirrors” the abilities of the US Navy to control nuclear forces.
Back in March, an event similar to what happened in Denver took place over the airspaces over Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Interestingly, the plane used an unusual call sign: Trump.
Not sure what the reasoning was behind this radio call sign.
The U.S. Navy has a total fleet of sixteen E-6B Mercury (TACAMO – “TAke Charge And Move Out”) that play an extremely important role for U.S. National Security: they are used to relay instructions to the fleet ballistic missile submarines in case of nuclear war but also act as backups of the four E-4Bs National Alternate Operations Center, working as Airborne Command Post platforms hence the “Doomsday Plane.“
I am not sure as to why a plane that normally circles the ocean to communicate nuclear messages to submarines circled over Denver.
There were online rumors that perhaps the plane had picked up a radiation signal, however, most of these planes are not equipped to do so. There was also speculation the plane was actually doing a test or was in the middle of a possible nuclear drill; after all, the plane is like an airborne version of NORAD’s bunker at Cheyenne Mountain.
I want to be clear – I am not trying to spin some conspiracy yarn, but I am merely questioning the presence of a plane like this one, circling over a major city causing some panic.
On September 11 2001, as we were watching the gruesome events unfold at the World Trade Center, the networks interrupted their coverage in New York with a breaking story from Washington DC.
A large white plane had just been sighted over the White House. Exactly when it first appeared was not certain, but the reports aired at about the same time as the story broke of the Pentagon being hit.
Witnesses who saw the mystery plane say it circled over Washington. CNN’s Senior White House correspondent John King saw it while standing in Lafayette Park, directly across from the White House. King reported live that “there was a white jet circling overhead.” The plane was flying in restricted airspace. CNN actually filmed the mysterious plane as it flew over the Capitol, but, unfortunately, it was too far away to identify.
Eventually, the plane was identified as an E-4B very similar to the one seen over Denver.
Just weeks ago, the DEFCON warning system was accelerated to Level 3 following increased tensions between US and Russia, with insiders fearing the West was creeping closer to nuclear war.
Level 3 means US troops could be mobilized in as little as 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, more troops will be sent to Europe in 2017 to bolster defenses against Russian movements and NATO continues building up forces in Poland and surrounding areas to protect against a potential Russian assault.
Nine nations possess nuclear weapons. In a military confrontation, leaders will have little warning of a potential nuclear attack and only minutes to respond. Sophisticated hackers could deceive warning systems or disrupt command-and-control processes. Moscow and Washington still posture their nuclear forces so that they can be ordered to fire in minutes, a dangerously outdated strategy from the Cold War. Once a missile is in the air, even if fired by mistake, there is no way to order it back.
Proliferation is also a serious problem. With weapons-usable nuclear material in more than 20 countries and the spread of nuclear know-how, nation states no longer have a monopoly on these weapons of mass destruction.
U.S.-led NATO and Russian military forces are now battling with increasing intensity. The mutual intimidation is steadily escalating. Even though the president-elect seems to be on a good footing with Russia, a lot of things can go wrong in two months as President Obama and the United States could be forced into conflict sooner than later.
U.S. and Russian forces are operating in very close and not-so-friendly quarters in the Syrian theater, and the prospect of a region going nuclear looms larger than ever.
In East Asia, meanwhile, North Korea will soon be able to brandish nuclear-armed missiles to credibly threaten South Korea, Japan and the U.S. homeland with nuclear devastation. The timeline for this threat to materialize is very short—maybe a few months at the least a few years if we are lucky.
This brings us back to the homeland as national security threats and warnings go full bore around the Holidays. ISIS has threatened to carry out a Nice-style truck attack on Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City later this month.
At least 84 people were killed and 18 critically wounded when a terrorist used a truck to mow down people who were celebrating Bastille Day in France last July. The driver slammed the massive vehicle, which an official said was loaded with explosives and weapons. ISIS loyalists suggest using a VBIED, or vehicle-borne improvised explosive device, to kill and maim spectators, millions of whom pack the streets of New York each year for the parade.
This year marks the 90th Anniversary of the parade.
Meanwhile, there have been numerous reports circulating around the internet relating to an uptick in U.S. military movement inside the United States. There have been numerous reports of an increase in military movement in the North Carolina, Virginia , West Virginia, and Ohio region.
While many of these military and U.N. vehicle sightings have been explained away as routine, the potential for civil unrest, the dangers of economic collapse, and the potential conflict with Russia are all possible scenarios for the reasons United Nations “peace keepers” could be working inside the United States as many have posited in the past as well as for some type of “martial law” scenario.
Chances are any prolonged conflict on American soil will take the form of an asymmetrical guerrilla conflict.
It is important to remember and understand that your government is already expecting a large scale domestic disturbance or uprising and with paramilitary 1033 programs within the local police forces, and the United Nations Strong Cities Network, the military and police forces can easily shift resources to prepare for any and all civil disturbances wherever they maybe.
While many listeners of Ground Zero are hopefully vigilant, others refuse to accept anything other than the official announcement from their authorities that all of this activity means anything. As in the case of the mysterious plane over Denver, the mainstream news were baffled, and the military along with the FAA indicated that they hadn’t a clue as to what was happening.
The truth is they did know, whether it was flying over the area to detect radiation from a dirty bomb, or conducting a psy-op or refueling the event triggered in some the feelings they had during the cold war, or after the 911 attacks.
It must be reiterated that the evolution of the war is at hand. It is right in your face and if you are not paying attention, you may find yourself in a world which is more foreign and hostile than you can imagine.
