This past week the continental US returned briefly, in the middle of winter, to summer. Temperatures in
the Midwest and East Coast were balmy, into the 60's and 70's. These are temperatures more
appropriate for late spring or early summer. Indiana suffered floods in the sudden spring-like weather,
with several deaths reported. The mild weather spawned tornadoes which crossed several states, from
Oklahoma to Wisconsin. Mid-January is hardly tornado season!
- More Tornadoes Interrupt a Warm January
January 9, 2008
- A line of thunderstorms fed by warm weather continued spinning off unusual January
tornadoes on Tuesday, killing a man in Arkansas and carrying a cow close to a mile. At
least three people died and hundreds were evacuated because of flooding in Indiana, where
more than 5 inches of rain fell in some areas and melting snow pushed rivers and streams
over their banks. The National Weather Service declared tornado watches or warnings
Tuesday afternoon in states including Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky. Several
tornadoes were confirmed or reported Monday in Missouri, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Illinois,
Oklahoma and Missouri, where two people were killed.
Other parts of the country were enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. Temperatures hit record
highs Monday in scores of cities from the Plains to the Northeast, and more records were set in many
areas Tuesday. Boston reached a record 67, and Atlantic City, N.J., hit 68; Syracuse, N.Y., hit 70 -
tying a record for the month of January. Monday's storms brought Wisconsin's first January tornado
since 1967 and Illinois' first since 1950, the National Weather Service said. Twisters are less rare this
time of year in states such as Arkansas, Louisiana and Tennessee.
At the same time, the West Coast was suffering under a winter storm of epic proportions, dumping up to
10 feet of snow in the mountains and with howling, hurricane force winds battering the coastline. Trucks
blew over on the Bay Area bridges. Many California residents were advised to stay indoors.
- Wicked Winter Storm Pounds California
January 4, 2008
- The latest in a series of winter storms brought dangerous amounts of rain and snow to the
region. The system was also poised to whip parts of the state with winds of up to 145 mph
-- the strength of a Category 4 hurricane, which can inflict extreme damage. More than a
million people were already without power after fierce winds swept through Northern
California earlier in the day. The storm could also dump more than 10 feet of snow on
California mountains by Sunday. Blizzard warnings were in effect for mountainous areas.
The California Highway Patrol reported 196 crashes in the state since early Friday,
according to CNN affiliate KCRA. California transportation officials shut down the
Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in the San Francisco area during Friday morning's commute
when gusty winds blew over big rigs on the upper and lower decks of the bridge.
The Zetas had predicted such weather swings, with tornadoes and hurricanes occurring in atypical
places and out of season.
ZetaTalk Prediction 9/15/1999: Increased weather problems will occur. Massive tornadoes such
as recently tore through Oklahoma will not go away, but will be on the increase and will occur in
places that do not experience such tornadoes. Hurricanes will be no more fierce than they are
today, but will occur in places not used to hurricanes force winds.
ZetaTalk Prediction 5/4/2002: Weather irregularities will continue in the manner we have
described since 1995, with increasing swings and extremes. In that weather irregularities are
smoothed, by nature, by increased atmospheric activity or ocean currents, temperature extremes
will not occur. Rather, oscillating extremes, similar to what the world has already experienced,
will occur. Sudden shift to cold weather, sudden unseasonably warm weather, and the like.
The Zetas have ascribed the weather irregularities to the Earth wobble which developed in 2004.
ZetaTalk Explanation 12/6/2004: If the Earth has been in a Wobble since last May, at this early
date a relatively gentle tug on the southern portion of the highly magnetized Atlantic Rift, was
this a factor in the record typhoon and hurricane seasons? Most certainly. Now that a more
violent Polar Wobble has started, will the weather be exempt? Hardly. Where the Earth is pulled,
the atmosphere is not, and lingers where it was while the crust moves beneath it. Accounts of
sudden wind storms, unexpected and out of season, are occurring. Jerking the Earth about under
her cloak of air also creates temperature changes.
Drought and Deluge
The Zetas also predicted alternating drought and deluge cycles, and these have been occurring lately.
ZetaTalk Prediction 7/15/1995: Areas of the world which have been deserts throughout
mankind's memory will become swamps under constant and repeated rains. Temperate climates
used to periodic gentle rainfall will suffer intractable droughts. Then this will switch about, for no
The southeast US was at first under continuous deluge, but lately has suffered an intractable drought.
Australia has been under a record drought for the past few years, but suddenly is floating away in flood
- Australia Floods Strand Thousands
January 7, 2008
- Thousands of people remain stranded by some of the worst flooding eastern Australia has
seen in 20 years. Parts of the country's most populous state, New South Wales, have been
cut off by heavy rain and have been declared natural disaster zones. There are similar
problems further north in Queensland, which has also been battered by wild conditions.
The floods are easing now but officials have warned that many communities could be
isolated for several days. Others parts of the country had also been suffering from the
weather. More summer rain is anticipated but climatologists believe it is far too early to
declare Australia's drought to finally be over. They say that the continent's long dry spell
has built up massive rainfall deficits that will take a lot more than one reasonable wet
season to fix.
Going into the New Hampshire elections, Obama was leading Clinton by up to 10 points, per all the
polls. Obama's rallies were jam packed and enthusiastic, while Hillary Clinton was tearful over her
prospects. Once again as in Iowa, independent and young voters turned out in droves. The press was all
but writing Clinton's obituary. Exit polls showed that Obama was winning, as expected. But the official
results of the primaries in New Hampshire delivered a shock. Clinton won by 2-3 percentage points.
Keen eyes noted a pattern. Where the votes were counted by hand, Obama won. Where counted by
Diebold or other mechanical means, the vote went to Clinton.
|Hand Count||34.818% ||38.706%|
|Machine Count||39.755% ||36.398%|
|No Method Stated||45.266% ||30.611%|
Vote fraud was suspected.
- NH Primary: Pre-Election Polls Wildly Different Than Results Announced for Clinton/Obama
January 9, 2008
- The way the ballots are counted in New Hampshire, largely on Diebold optical-scan voting
systems, wholly controlled and programmed by a very very bad company named LHS
Associates. The pre-election pollster's numbers were dead-on, for the most part, on the
Republican side, as well as on the Democratic side. Except in the do-or-die (for Hillary)
Clinton v. Obama race. As you'll note, the numbers in Zogby's latest polls, for all but
Clinton and Obama, seem to have been dead-on the money for both the Republicans and
Democrats. Edwards, for example, was polled at 17% in Zogby's poll, and he received
exactly 17% in the MSNBC numbers, with 63% of precincts reporting. So are we to believe
that only those voters who preferred Obama previously, decided to change to Hillary at the
last minute? Some 40% of New Hampshire's precincts are hand-counted, which equals
about 25% of the votes. All the rest are counted on hackable Diebold op-scan systems, with
completely hackable memory cards, all programmed and managed by LHS Associates. As
Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org who seems to share my concern, says, LHS is the "chain
of custody" in New Hampshire elections.
But isn't this the terrain of the Republicans? The tool of Karl Rove? This is the Democratic primary. The
ZetaTalk Explanation 1/10/2008: Was New Hampshire compromised? Election statistics point out
that where hand counting was done, the lead expected by Obama held. Where counted by
Diebold, Hillary unaccountably won. The polls going into the caucus had Obama ahead by at
least 10 points, and exit polls substantiated this. This was the margin counted in those districts
which hand counted results. Clearly, something is suspect. Indeed, there was enough warning
ahead of time that Hillary was going to lose, and lose big. This would propel her descent into
oblivion, from her current position where she was already teetering on the brink. It is not by
accident that the same voter fraud techniques used to assure Bush the Presidency in 2000 and
2004 were used to assure Hillary a win in the New Hampshire primary. She has been accused by
Obama of being "Bush Lite", in that she is cooperative with the lobbyists, and voted to give Bush
the powers he wanted in both Iraq and now Iran. The Clintons have thrown in with the Bush
family, agreeing to support each other, which should come as no surprise if one has watched the
news - George Herbert Bush and Bill Clinton, together in Indonesia after the devastating quake
in Christmas, 2004. So much camaraderie after so many years as opponents.
Will the Democratic primary then be fixed? Not hardly. The Puppet Master, who desires the
Bush/Cheney administration to be politically decapitated, is hardly interested in a replacement
crew. He wanted Kerry to win, and Bush stole the election, so retaliated by ensuring that the
2006 election was in accordance with the wish of the people. He wants the US out of the Middle
East, so the oil fields can be protected by whomever emerges as the dominant power there. He
wants Bush contained, and does not want a proxy setup as a puppet of Bush. He will now
intervene, we predict, in the manner he did in 2006, to ensure valid elections. Obama appears to
him as someone with whom he can negotiate, someone with whom he can find common interests
such as preserving the economy and sustaining industrial capacity. His monitors knew voter
fraud was a possibility, per our warnings, but did not act in time. They won't be taken by surprise
a second time, we predict.
Gulf of Tonkin Redux
Just as President Bush was leaving for his first-ever visit to Israel, a potentially explosive incident
happening off the Strait of Hormuz occurred. Iranian speedboats were accused of threatening to blow
up US warships traveling through the strait, reportedly putting white boxes into the water and declaring
that the warships would blow up within minutes. Is this credible? Why would tiny speedboats challenge
warships in this manner, when they could be easily be blown out of the water? If the intent was to blow
up the warships, why give them warning? Something did not fit, in this scenario. After much umbrage by
Bush and much reporting of the incident in the news by US television stations, the Iranians responded.
- Iran Says US Navy Video is Fake: Report
January 9, 2008
- Iran's Revolutionary Guards accused the United States of fabricating footage claiming to
show Iranian speedboats harassing US warships in the Strait of Hormuz. The Pentagon
released a video and audio tape Tuesday that it said confirmed US charges that Iranian
speedboats swarmed around US warships in the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday and radioed a
threat to blow them up. Iranian officials had already dismissed the US version of the
incident as anti-Iran propaganda ahead of President George W. Bush's visit to the Middle
East. The Revolutionary Guards have said that the Iranian forces merely identified the US
vessels before both sides went on their way without any disturbance.
Is this another Gulf of Tonkin trick, in order to claim the Iranians had attacked and thence to trick the
US military into engaging Iran?
- Gulf of Tonkin Incident
- In a tape recording that surfaced in 2001, President Lyndon B. Johnson admits that the
Gulf of Tonkin second "attack," which he used to obtain approval for the Vietnam War
from Congress, never occurred. In 1995 the retired General Vo Nguyen Giap confirmed
nothing ever happened on August 4. He believed U.S. ships were trying to provoke an
attack so President Johnson would have a pretext for greater U.S. involvement. Later
research, including a report released in 2005 by the National Security Agency, also
indicated that the attack most likely did not occur, but also attempted to dispel the
long-standing assumption that members of the administration of President Johnson had
knowingly lied about the nature of the incident. The outcome of the incident was the
passage by Congress of the Southeast Asia Resolution. The resolution served as Johnson's
legal justification for escalating American involvement in the Vietnam Conflict.
Certainly this is something Israel desires, and something the Bush administration has been trying to incite.
ZetaTalk Explanation 10/27/2007: Israel, the Bush administration and those who worked to insert
Bush and Cheney into the White House know they are losing the battle for the Middle East, and
any more delays on an invasion or bombing of Iran will only lessen their chances of securing
Iran's oil. They have tried to exhort the rest of the world into sanctions against Iran, but Russia
and China refused. For the US to impose sanctions, alone, hardly punishes Iran as Iranians do
business with Russia and with China in particular, and could frankly care less about American
trade. Israel threatened that they will bomb Iran, and so Iran and Russia threatened back! Israel
knows they cannot, alone, defend themselves. They are also aware that the US military is
refusing to engage Iran. Should Israel attempt to bomb Iran, they would be left on their own to
mop up the damage in their country, as it would be clear they had started the fracas. The
approach, thus, has been to insult and accuse Iran and hope they react, which they have not and
will not do as they are hardly fools. Israel and Bush are hoping that Iran will attack, make a
move, as insults are the only weapon they have!
Days after the incident received urgent coverage in the US media, the Navy admitted they could not be
certain the verbal threats coming over the radio were coming from the Iranian speedboats. The New
York Times noted the voices did not have the background noices one would expect if the threats had
come from the Iranian speedboats. Plus per experts, the voice did not even sound Iranian. And finally,
the white boxes supposedly thrown into the water were nowhere in evidence in either the Navy or
Iranian videos supplied to the media.
- Official Version of Naval Incident Starts to Unravel
January 11, 2008
- The new information that appears to contradict the original version of the incident
includes the revelation that U.S. officials spliced the audio recording of an alleged Iranian
threat onto to a videotape of the incident. Non-official chatter is common on the channel
used to communicate with the Iranian boats. Furthermore, as the New York Times noted
Thursday, the recording carries no ambient noise, such as the sounds of a motor, the sea or
wind, which should have been audible if the broadcast had been made from one of the five
small Iranian boats. Pentagon officials admitted to the Times that they could not rule out
that the broadcast might have come from another source.
