You Will Delete That!

And now, from this page, some serious stuff regarding one of my special interests… right up there with Mars. Well, close anyway.

In monitoring my online haunt, I was snagged by a thread with a title magnetic.

From the very brave efforts of Eric Lafforgue, a pdf of photos he was told to delete, culled from six (Six!) trips before being banned. He gives the reason they gave for needing him to delete the pics. The Horrible Hermits™ are apparently unaware of a certain type of software. Goofballs. Albeit dangerous ones.

Many of the 57 are really quite powerful so it’s worth a look.

The most bizarre country on the planet, comparable to no other. The entire country is a prison, stuck in time and it seems to these eyes profoundly delusional. Creepy. Scary.

The things those lucky enough to escape say are truly horrific. I have seen more horrific images, but no matter, these convey well the situation there, shared even by the military, these are great and by a superb photographer.

The following photo is a very telling piece, however and I do think it is worth way more than the proverbial 1,000 words…

 

nklites

They don’t have electricity in North Korea, you see, or precious little of it at best.

Here is a photo from Mr. Lafforgue’s pdf that shows the electricity issue up close and personal, as does one of the Vice documentaries. Both in places intentionally chosen to represent the place in all it’s glory. At least now they realize that the things should be, you know, like, ON!

Time warp.

Prison.

Whoa.

We hear a lot about how fab their military is and the marching on Tubes looks great but this photo also from the Lafforgue piece tells a different story – along with a few others showing soldiers.

Information
Food, Inc
Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner uses reports by FAST FOOD NATION author Eric Schlosser and THE OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA author Michael Pollan as a springboard to exploring where the food we purchase really comes from, and what it means for the health of future generations. By exposing the comfortable relationships between business and government, Kenner gradually shines light on the dark underbelly of the American food industry. The USDA and FDA are supposed to protect the public, so why is it that both government regulatory agencies have been complicit in allowing corporations to put profit ahead of consumer health, the American farmer, worker safety, and even the environment? As chicken breasts get bigger and tomatoes are genetically engineered not to go bad, 73,000 Americans fall ill from powerful new strains of E. coli every year, obesity levels are skyrocketing, and adult diabetes has reached epidemic proportions. Perhaps if the general public knew how corporations use exploited laws and subsidies to create powerful monopolies, the outrage would be enough to make us think more carefully about the food we put into our bodies.

This is a great film that everyone needs to see. Worth seeing again if it’s been awhile. This thread is meant mostly for those new to the scene, though, those just starting to realize that it is just not what it seems, this world we live in.

It is really quite frightening when you come to see the big picture, to know what is truly happening all around us, to know that when you take a bite out of that burger, you’re eating cow shit. Yeah.

There is a fine juxtaposition at an hour in, 57:30 really. After a wonderful segment with a real farmer who gives us truth they switch focus to a rather inane organic convention featuring their own poisons and then we see the Stonyfield company. I used to buy their yogurt. Used to. The company goes to the extreme opposite of the real farmer we have just learned a lot from. They sell tons of no longer completely good food to meet the needs of that repugnant monstrosity known as Wal-Mart. Antithesis much? And worst of all, yes worse than that – they have wholeheartedly endorsed GMO “foods” … yeah … and quite recently. Which means Stonyfield are in point of fact completely full of shit. I am sorry, but I can not buy things from sell-outs. I cannot trust that kind.

The film gets into some feel good bits after that through to the end.

I wonder if we can re-achieve a healthy way of life. I wonder if we can eradicate the poisons we face – before  Monsanto and Pioneer and Smithfield and Tyson and all the others kill every last one of us… all for their inhuman greed.

Peace.

The Patriot Act – When Truth Becomes TreasonSource
By Susan Lindauer
Former CIA Asset Covering Iraq & Libya
5-23-11

Most Americans believe they understand the dangers of the Patriot Act, which Congress has vowed to extend 4 more years in a vote later this week. Trust me when I say, Americans are not nearly frightened enough.

Ever wonder why the truth about 9/11 never got exposed? Why Americans don’t have a clue about leadership fraud surrounding the War on Terror? Why Americans don’t know if the 9/11 investigation was really successful? Why the Iraqi Peace Option draws a blank? Somebody has known the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden — or his grave – for the past 10 years. But nobody’s talking to the people.

In significant part, that’s because of the Patriot Act — a law that equates free speech with sedition. It’s got a big agenda, with 7,000 pages of Machiavellian code designed to interrupt individual questioning of government policy. In this brave new world, free speech under the Bill of Rights effectively has been declared a threat to government controls for maintaining stability. And the Patriot Act has become the premiere weapon to attack whistle blowers and dissidents who challenge the comfort of political leaders hiding inconvenient truths from the public. It’s all the rage on Capitol Hill, as leaders strive to score TV ratings, while demogauging their “outstanding leadership performance” on everything from national security to environmental policy.

Truth Has Become Treason

But wait — Congress assures us the Patriot Act only targets foreigners, who come to our shores seeking to destroy our way of life through violent, criminal acts. Good, law abiding Americans have nothing to fear. The Patriot Act restricts its powers of “roving wiretaps” and warrantless searches to international communications among “bad guys.” Congress has sworn, with hand on heart, it’s only purpose is breaking down terrorist cells and hunting out “lone wolf” mad men.

That’s what they told you, right? And you believed them? You trust the government. Well, that was your first mistake. With regards to the Patriot Act, it’s a fatal one. Would the government lie to you? You betcha! And they have.

The Patriot Act reaches far beyond terrorism prevention. In my home state of Maryland, State Police invoked the Patriot Act to run surveillance on the Chesapeake Climate Action Network dedicated to wind power, recycling and protection of the Chesapeake Bay. They infiltrated the DC Anti War Network, suggesting the group might be a front for “white supremacists,” and Amnesty International, claiming to investigate “civil rights abuses.” Opponents of the death penalty also got targeted (in case they got violent).

Bottom line: truth tellers who give Americans too much insight on any number of issues are vulnerable to a vast arsenal of judicial weapons typically associated with China or Myanmar. In the Patriot Act, the government has created a powerful tool to hunt out free thinking on the left or right. It doesn’t discriminate. Anyone who opposes government policy is at risk.

How do I know all this? Because I was the second non-Arab American ever indicted on the Patriot Act. My arrest defied all expectations about the law. I was no terrorist plotting to explode the Washington Monument. Quite the opposite, I had worked in anti-terrorism for almost a decade, covering Iraq and Libya, Yemen, Egypt and Malaysia at the United Nations. At the instruction of my CIA handler, I had delivered advance warnings about the 9/11 attack to the private staff of Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Office of Counter-Terrorism in August, 2001. FBI wire taps prove that I carried details of a comprehensive peace framework with Iraq up and down the hallowed corridors of Capitol Hill for months before the invasion, arguing that War was totally unnecessary.

I delivered those papers to Democrats and Republicans alike; to my own second cousin, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card; and to Secretary of State Colin Powell, who lived next door to my CIA handler. Gratis of the Patriot Act, we had the manila envelope and my hand written notes to Secretary Powell, dated a week before his infamous speech at the United Nations. My papers argued that no WMDs would be found inside Iraq, and that the peace framework could achieve all U.S. objectives without firing a shot.

In short, I was an Asset who loudly opposed War with Iraq, and made every effort to correct the mistakes in assumptions on Capitol Hill.

Then I did the unthinkable. I phoned the offices of Senator Trent Lott and Senator John McCain, requesting to testify before a brand new, blue ribbon Commission investigating Pre-War Intelligence. Proud and confident of my efforts, I had no idea Congress was planning to blame “bad intelligence” for the unpopular War.

Over night I became Public Enemy Number One on Capitol Hill.

Thirty days later I awoke to hear FBI agents pounding on my door. My nightmare on the Patriot Act lasted 5 years — Four years after my arrest, the Court granted me one morning of evidentiary testimony by two supremely credible witnesses. Parke Godfrey verified my 9/11 warnings under oath. Otherwise, I never got my day in Court.

The Patriot Act’s Arsenal To Stop Free Speech

If you care about America and the traditions of freedom, whether you’re progressive or conservative, you should be angry about this law.

First come the warrantless searches and FBI tracking surveillance. My work in anti-terrorism gave me no protection. I got my first warrantless search after meeting an undercover FBI agent to discuss my support for free elections in Iraq and my opposition to torture and sexual humiliation of Iraqi detainees. (Sorry guys, body wires don’t lie.)

If truth tellers don’t get the message to shut their mouths, the Justice Department ratchets up the pressure. Defendants face secret charges, secret evidence and secret grand jury testimony. Throughout five years of indictment, my attorneys and I never got to read a single FBI interview or grand jury statement. Under the Patriot Act, the whistleblower / defendant has no right to know who has accused him or her of what criminal activities, or the dates of the alleged offenses, or what laws got broken.

Of course, I was able to piece together my activities. I knew that “sometime in October, 2001” an Iraqi diplomat gave me the English translation of a book on depleted uranium, which showed how cancer rates and birth defects had spiked in Iraqi children.

And I was quite certain that on October 14, 1999, an Iraqi diplomat asked me how to channel major financial contributions to the Presidential Campaign of George Bush and Dick Cheney. The Justice Department got the date from me, since I reported my conversation immediately to my Defense Intelligence handler, Paul Hoven.

It’s unlikely the grand jury knew that, since the Justice Department has the prerogative to keep a grand jury in the dark. In this brave new world, a grand jury can be compelled to consider indictments carrying 10 years or more in prison, without the right to review evidence, or otherwise determine whether an individual’s actions rise to the level of criminal activity at all.

That’s just the beginning. Once Congress scores an indictment against a political opponent, the Justice Department can force Defense attorneys to undergo protracted security clearances, while the whistle blower cum defendant waits in prison — usually in solitary confinement or the SHU. After the security clearance, prosecutors have an ironclad right to bar attorneys from communicating communications from the prosecution to the defendant, on threat of disbarment, stiff fines or prison sentence.

Scared yet? Once you get to trial, the situation gets much worse. The Patriot Act declares that a prosecutor has no obligation to show evidence of criminal activity to a jury at all. And the Defense can be denied the right to argue a rebuttal to those secret charges, because it requires speculation that might mislead the jury – or might expose issues that the government considers, well, secret. After all that a Judge can instruct a jury that the prosecution regards the secret evidence as sufficient to merit conviction on the secret charges. The Jury can be barred from considering the lack of evidence in weighing whether to convict.

Think I’m exaggerating? You would be wrong. That’s what happened to me. All of it – with one major glitch. All of this presumes the whistle blower’s lucky enough to get a trial. I was denied mine, though I fought vigorously for my rights. Instead, citing the Patriot Act, I got thrown in prison on a Texas military base without so much as a hearing – and threatened with indefinite detention and forcible drugging, to boot.

Americans are not nearly afraid enough.

Neither is Congress. As of this week, members of Congress should be very afraid. Anyone who votes to extend the Patriot Act should expect to pack their bags in 2012. They will be targeted for defeat. Above all, the words “freedom” and “Constitution” will never appear in their campaigns without suffering extreme public scorn – never, ever again.

Ann Druffel expands on her new book, Firestorm, which tells the important story of Dr. James McDonald.

Her book and presentation powerfully demonstrate what researchers have gone through to bring a truth to the public which the public’s elected and appointed officials did not want acknowledged.

Of all the researchers who intersected with the process and prospects of governmental public disclosure, none was more intellectually suited and had collected more scientifically valid data than Dr. James E. McDonald, a prominent scientist and professor with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics and the University of Arizona at Tucson.

He had unprecedented high-level contacts, and during his scientific career introduced numerous groundbreaking projects in meteorology and climatology under ONR contracts and with top scientific organizations.

Between 1958-1971 he worked closely with science-oriented UFO groups nationwide and in several foreign countries. He gave hundreds of talks on UFOs before top scientific organizations, influencing numerous scientists to take the UFO question seriously and in 1968 was instrumental in bringing about one of only two public Congressional hearing, thus far, on the UFO subject.

Ann Druffel Official Website! – www.anndruffel.com

The book Druffel is talking about is not new, it’s from 2004. My attention was directed towards this video today and I think it is important for people to hear these words and digest this story. I think it is rather nice that she only mentions it briefly a few times, devoting her presentation to this remarkable gentleman’s life and activities.

Ann Druffel is one of those rare serious researchers in this sometimes circus-like field; starting out in the late 40s, before the odd and disruptive things started erupting all over the place. She is one of the original members of the government-destroyed National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, the finest civilian study effort in history.

It is my humble opinion that Dr. James E. McDonald will go down in history, assuming that history is not too horribly corrupted, as the best UFO researcher ever. The only one who comes close, really and also in my always humble opinion, is the rather visionary Dr. Jacques Vallee.

Peace to you all…

The following was lifted in its entirety from DemandProgress.org, but hey, this is important…

And yes, it IS true that there was in fact the little shocker mentioned below… so let’s let ‘em have it!

North Korea started cropping up in my stream lately. Didn’t really give it much mind at first. I didn’t pay attention at all when they were firing spuds in the direction of South Korea. I was inclined to somewhat ignore it all as some sort of asinine Commie saber rattling. And when nothing seemed to come of it the country slipped away again.

Then just this week there was a photo thread on AboveTopSecret loaded with pictures from the inside the likes of which no one’s ever seen. That being because the place is run by one of the wackest psychopaths on earth besides being the last of the pure Stalinist dictatorships. The pictures were weird. Bleak. Surreal. Creepy. And Scary.

You can see them here for the time being… North Korea. I strongly recommend you see them and read the rather interesting comments from the Russian photographer… especially considering Russia was once a communist country too. The photos represent an extremely rare glimpse of the reality of North Korea that is just peeking over the top of the almost impenetrable wall of secrecy. Like I said… weird.

The ATS thread is here… Inside North Korea, Photos You Haven’t Seen.

While still on page 1 of the ATS thread, member veryinteresting posted a link to part 1 of the video you are about to see.

This is a very powerful documentary. Very. The video goes way beyond what the photographer above was able to capture. Using hidden camera footage taken by a hero who is now very likely dead, (10 years ago) the actual reality of the people of this country will not only bring tears to your eyes it will make you sick to your stomach. If you think I’m kidding, I’ve got news for you… Just wait till Part 3 hits you.

And even well before that bit, there are orphans, hundreds of thousands of them picking up bits of rice off the ground while adults are eating right there beside them ignoring them… what the frack is that all about? It shakes one’s faith in what it means to be human.

Gets more amazing by the minute, it does, I’ll give it that. It’s nearly got me speechless, but not quite. I will say it is the strangest place I’ve seen in a long time… it seems alien almost… it’s that far removed from my reality. The cruelty, the bleakness… it’s all a bit much.

It is quite clear that not one kernel of the billions in food aid has ever reached it’s intended person. Not one kernel. Ever. It is quite clear that the rat bastard psychopaths that run the joint, led by paranoid delusional dictator Kim Jong Il have trashed the entire country and turned it into a giant opium farm. Perhaps that’s why the Western governments are so tolerant of this place.

To these synapses, tolerance of this regime is tantamount to a crime against humanity. Period. End of discussion.

Watch this and see if you don’t agree…

Part 2

YouTube canned the account listed below, so the need to switch to the Dailymotion vids above was just realized as no one said anything, but I’ve left the description as it is quite good.. Sorry about the ads. I have found that if you hit mute on the first ad, and then set your level when the video starts, subsequent ads will stay on mute while the video track remains normal.

This documentary first aired in 2000.

North Korea, a country of 22 million. Up to 3 million of its’ people have starved to death in the last 10 years. More than 40% of North Korean children now suffer from chronic malnutrition. Children of the Secret State is an investigation into North Korea, considered by many as the last Stalinist dictatorship, a hidden and sealed country riddled with propaganda and saturated with hostility to democracy and the West. Joe Layburn and the Hardcash team discovered a young North Korean, known by the pseudonym Ahn Chol, who has been filming undercover so that the world can see what is going on in his native land: the country where his parents both starved to death.

His devastating footage shows some of the estimated 200,000 street children, mainly orphans, foraging for food in the mud and the gutters, ignored by the adults around them and ignored by the state which claims they are at its bosom.

ae911truth | May 21, 2009

John Gross, lead structural engineer of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) denies the vast witnessed and documented evidence of molten metal found at all 3 World Trade Center towers destroyed on 9/11. Examine the evidence at http://www.ae911truth.org/

Ludicrous!

How can this man say what he says in the face of the evidence? There was molten steel for months afterward. But… people don’t care. That fact makes me queasy… that people just don’t care.

I note in checking my facebook account today that most of the people there are still very much asleep, nine years later. Still believing in the bullshit, still having the wool pulled over their eyes, still thinking bin Laden was involved. That is truly, truly sad.

That the actual perpetrators have gotten away with it – scott-free – shows the power of media manipulation to be nearly invincible.

It makes me very sad and very angry at the same time. I have tried for years. Hundreds upon hundreds of hours of research; and all for nearly naught, as it seems most people just don’t want to know the truth, complacent and comfortable in their dogged and rock solid acceptance of the completely impossible.

Ludicrous!

Just learned that 22 minutes of footage from the camera of the notorious Evan Fairbanks had shown up on YouTube. The strange thing here being that there is no audio track. That just doesn’t happen with professionals and professional hardware. Fairbanks claims “operator error.” Yeah, right. More likely the audio tracks were simply not copied to this release by the FBI, who were in possession of this tape for a long, long time. The reflection? Well that seems rather unlikely if not impossible due to the geometry.  FBI photo manipulation at its most evil. Better crafted than the Zapruder film, though. But… people don’t care. About either one.

Nine hundred first responders are now dead from the toxicity they encountered within that cloud, the cloud they worked in… and were told was safe by Christy Whitman, then head of the EPA. And still the perpetrators are unquestioned. And those who do question are still ridiculed and marginalized as nutjobs and terrorists.

Please wake up. Thanks.

Strange. Very strange.

And disconcerting.

Disappointing, too.

Then again it is NASA. A rather bizarre organization, NASA.

You see, this post was initially inspired by my running across an interesting page at Lunar Explorer Italia last night titled  AS 15-83-11218 and the Stephenville UFO: a VERY SMART image-comparison (by Carlo Contu). As you no doubt have gathered from said title, Mr. Contu noticed that the Apollo image in question and the sportiest image of the infamous Stephenville, Texas UFO are remarkably similar. You know the one, the pretty rainbow colored squiggly line in the night sky…

So I Googled up the image number, all set to do a session in Photoshop. But it wasn’t available nice and large at  NASA History’s Apollo Image Library… in fact they don’t even list the magazine as existing at all! What’s up with that? Note that they do list magazines for which they have no pictures to show yet… so, why not 83?

All was not lost, as they are all shown on the Lunar and Planetary Institute’s Apollo Image Atlas… but the images at LPI are all small, all at low resolution and none are really suitable for delving into in hopes of doing any sort of confident analysis. Some clues came out, though…

Here’s the text at the LPI page for this magazine:

Apollo Image Atlas

70mm Hasselblad Image Catalog

Apollo 15, Magazine ??

Images AS15-83-11218 to AS15-83-11234

Why does it say “Magazine ??”? Huh? What was that? Note, of course, that right below that line, in the picture range it clearly states  AS15-83-xxx to AS15-83-xxx. 83, again, is the magazine number.

Ah, I see, when you go to the individual photos it lists right below them their confusion’s source, they don’t know the Letter sub-designation of magazine 83. Well, why not? And even so does not knowing the letter therefore qualify it’s contents for near oblivion, displayed small and low-res on a sub-site for the Apollo program?

Note: For those not familiar with magazines, they are a removable part of the Hasselblad camera, a film holding ‘magazine,’  pre-loaded with film that eliminates the need to string the film through the camera as in a standard 35mm camera. They just snap on and off the back.

Note, too, that 83 was not the first magazine used by the Apollo 15 crew, so although there seems to be some sort of labeling error, I don’t imagine that there were any other issues with it. The Image Atlas starts at 82… which naturally makes me wonder about the existence of 1 through 81, but that’s not completely relevant here. The ones they do show are otherwise sequential in content.

As you can see below, the images captured are intriguing… to say the least… especially the last one, the swoopy, streaky and oh so freaky AS15-83-11234.

What do they show? I can’t say as I know. I can speculate as well as you can, but unless the impossible happens and the crew of 15 give us a play-by-play description, speculation is all we’ve got. Another thing to speculate about is why are there only 17 pictures? Why did they stop snapping? Must see if I can find anything in the transcripts, but, I rather doubt that if there was anything exciting going on it’d still be within them.

I really do like that last one… what the hell is all that? It’s absolutely fascinating. Was there an encounter with something, something we can barely comprehend, way out there in the cold, vast darkness of space?

Hmmm?

Do You Hear The People Sing?

Hollie Greig and her Mom

This Is Your Chance To Make A Difference

The imminent General Election in the UK offers a fantastic opportunity to put the plight of Hollie Greig and all children abused by the establishment paedophile and Satanic rings in the public spotlight and expose how these sick and depraved people are running our world.

The Prime Minister, government ministers, leaders of the opposition parties, Members of Parliament and would-be members will all be out on the streets and in public places and meetings throughout the election campaign and we need as many people as possible to question them about the Hollie Greig cover-up and demand action.

We need people to use video cameras to film these people being questioned and put on the spot throughout the UK and the result posted on YouTube where it can be accessed and posted by websites all over the world.

The leader of the Scottish Parliament, Alex Salmond.The Scottish 'Justice' Secretary Kenny McAskill.

We especially need to target  the leader of the Scottish Parliament, Alex Salmond, whenever he appears in public and the Scottish ‘Justice’ Secretary Kenny McAskill, both of whom have disgracefully ignored the Hollie Greig case and refused to even speak about it.

They won’t speak to the public about such an appalling case as a Down’s Syndrome girl being systematically abused and raped for more than a decade by Scottish establishment figures??

Okay, the public will go to them – and the UK government, opposition parties and Members of Parliament who have refused to even respond to demands that they pursue the case.

Disgraceful – Enough

Actually, I’m holding out hope that this is only a part of a bigger picture… there’s some cool anomaly shots in it to be sure… including a truly inexplicable boomerang shaped thing… you’ll see… but my thirst for more and more weirdness is strong; and the second half presents a visual representation of the results of frame stacking, as explained more below.

Frame stacking is an old technique that can produce some seriously spectacular results unachievable by any other method… it is very commonly used by the astronomical community and professional photographers and photographic printers alike in a process called HDR, or High Dynamic Range photography. That’s printers as in people, not machines, by the way.

A very handy link was found at NASA’s History site in a section on Apollo 12’s approach and landing by Easynow over at ATS… it goes into some detail, with pics, about the DAC camera and its mountings, view angles and other good stuff… please do check it out, it’s pretty cool.

NASA’s Apollo Coverup – A Forensic Look At The 16mm DAC Film Footage

In this presentation, we will focus on taking a closer look at several interesting segments of film footage from the NASA archives. All the footage shown and analyzed here was originally shot by NASA astronauts during the Apollo missions (1968-1972) on 16mm film, using what was known as the “Data Acquisition Camera” – the “DAC”.

The Maurer “DAC” cameras were modified variable frame rate 16mm motion picture film cameras used by the various Apollo crews throughout their missions to film scenes of interest through the windows of the spacecraft, interior spacecraft activities, as well as to shoot exterior footage during lunar surface “moonwalk” operations and Low-Earth Orbit or Trans-Earth-Coast EVA ops in cis-lunar space.

I included a bit more information on the Apollo DAC camera in the brief writeup I did attached to the earlier teaser/trailer video for this presentation – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo81LM…

FRAME-STACKING
In the last half of this presentation (starting at 4:30), I show various examples where I employ an enhancement technique known as “frame-stacking” against the raw DAC archive footage. In certain cases, frame-stacking can be employed to forensically attack the raw frames of film and produce an enhanced composite still-frame of a stable (or motion-stabilized) scene. It should be noted that “stacking” is by no means a new method of enhancing video or motion picture film footage. It is a digital enhancement technique that has been around a lot longer than most people would probably believe, and in many cases it can provide us an improved look at some of the deeper image detail that is actually buried beneath the random “noise” in the raw footage.

Frame-stacking exploits the fact that the DAC footage, like any motion picture camera or digital video footage, is comprised of many sequential still images shown in rapid succession to simulate the appearance of motion to the viewer’s eye. If the raw footage is providing us with a stable (or motion-stabilized) scene that has no or little movement in the field-of-view, it might appear that the scene is comprised of many individual photographs that all seem to capture the identical view. However, appearances can be deceiving, and the truth is that each of those individual frames making up the raw film footage have slight variances between them, with each one suffering from its own unique random noise artifacts. “Stacking” works by analyzing and comparing all the raw frames that make up a segment of footage, allowing for the detection and subtraction of random noise artifacting from each individual raw frame. Those individual cleaned frames are then stacked together in order to construct a high-resolution composite image of the captured scene.

The first two examples I show in the frame-stacking segment were included merely to demonstrate the effectiveness of this enhancement technique when employed against raw archive footage of a known object – in this case, an Apollo Lunar Module. The first example is film footage from Apollo 9 taken in low-Earth orbit with an automatic 16mm DAC camera mounted to the open hatch of the CSM aiming “up” towards the Lunar Module (which was docked to the nose of the CSM at the time). Astronaut Rusty Schweickhart (LMP) can be seen standing on the porch of the LM, where he was conducting an EVA to test and verify the performance of the Apollo A7-L spacesuit and PLSS life support pack. A magnified split-screen closeup of the LM’s Rendevzous Radar Antenna allows for a direct comparative analysis of the raw footage versus the “stacked” enhancement as an example to demonstrate the improvements in clarity that can be gained.

The second demonstration example is not actually DAC footage, but rather is television footage from the Apollo 15 mission showing the LM “Falcon” sitting on the lunar surface, taken with the tripod-mounted GCTA-TV camera. I chose this example of raw GCTA-TV footage because it clearly suffers from rather severe noise issues, providing another good demonstration of the enhancement potential that frame-stacking can offer. As you can plainly see in both the DAC and GCTA-TV examples showing the LM, the stack enhancements offer considerable improvement in image clarity, allowing us to extract detail that in some cases may appear to not even be detectable when viewing the raw footage.

This presentation here is just the first part of a multi-part series focusing on the truth (and the lies) in the Apollo DAC footage. Hope you enjoy, and stay tuned for more to come!

Cheers,

The Video The US Army Doesn’t Want You To See
Posted on: March 3, 2010, by: rainfall
*Warning* graphic and language: This video might be hard for some to watch but it is very important in understanding what is really going on in this ‘fake’ “war on terror.” This illegal occupation and aggression by the United States and it’s allies will have to be answered to. The harvest is approaching and the chaff will be separated from the wheat. Karma can be a bitch!!

No, they certainly don’t want you to see it, the multinational corporations don’t want you to see it, the mainstream media doesn’t want you to see it… and neither do any of the branches of the governments of our countries want you to see it, especially those of the US and the UK.

Creepy feelings of unease linger after seeing this video… besides the revulsion over the effects of depleted uranium on the infants, the entire spectrum of the two wars we’ve started is just so sick, so twisted… how can this be done in our name… it’s repulsive.

This is inhuman… these people are inhuman… worse than war criminals… I can’t even think of sufficient words.

How long will this go on? How can we stop these monsters? A way must be found.

This is scary in a most exceptional way. As you know there have been rumblings of this for a while now. Apparently our current administration is ramping up it’s efforts to surpass with glory the heinous achievements of the one they took the baton from.

I must say that these new guys have struck me as whole order of magnitude more evil than W, Dick n’ Rice ever were… and that’s even counting the previous crew’s execution of the biggest false-flag attack in history. Jeezus H… And now this.

From the evidence presented in the videos, (I’ve not yet read this nightmare Bill), it would seem there’s not much time left for the last bastion of free speech. A year maybe, Alex notes. This blog and all the other ones you and I read, all the news sites, everything… will be gone.

Just from the highlights Bermas reads, it’s clear that the “Cybersecurity Act” is, in toto, completely and utterly unConstitutional, not that either the Senate or Congress care one whit about the Constitution. Security my ass. It’s security for a criminal elite ruling class against We The People. I’d just remind them that there are a lot more of us than there are of them. Capische, Obama? Get it, Emmanuel?

Methinks, as do legions of others, that the psychopaths in the institutions mentioned above along with the executive are basically afraid of us, the People… really afraid… WE are now the enemy, and we must be stopped; this they feel, and deeply. And the best way for them to stop us, for now, apparently, is to do exactly what China, Iran and other nations of ill-repute have done to their people… turn off the real information, turn off the freedom of speech… turn off the freedom, full stop.

Fucking bastards.

Apparently they’re going to try and scare us all into blind, blithering willingness to accept this heaving pile of bat guano by staging a fake cyber attack on us all, as is laid out in the missive below, which was posted along with these videos. Interesting list of elitist organizations responsible for it, too, no?

Insiders, Neocons Plan Simulated Cyber Attack

Kurt Nimmo – http://www.infowars.com/
February 11, 2010

The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) plans to simulate a cyber attack on America’s infrastructure on February 16, 2010. Dubbed Cyber ShockWave, the simulation will provide an unprecedented look at how the government would develop a real-time response to a large-scale cyber crisis affecting much of the nation, according to a BPC press release issued today.

BPC propaganda video mentions China and Russia as possible enemies.

The cyber attack is going to be war-gamed, in public, for all the country to see. It will be quite realistic, featuring senior intelligence and national security officials, including former directors of intelligence agencies and combatant commands and homeland security advisers, writes Marc Ambinder for The Atlantic.

Ambinder continues:

The sponsors of the event include companies with financial stakes in the future of cyber defense — General Dynamics is one — but also companies whose transactions are the lifeblood to the American economy, and who want to foster a greater sense of urgency among the public and policymakers.

In other words, a handful of well-placed corporations stand to make a fortune on the prospect of a cyber attack. In addition, a message will be sent to the Senate warning that it should pass cybersecurity legislation (a 2009 Senate bill would have given Obama the authority to shut down the internet).

General Dynamics is a leading death merchant at the very heart of the military industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about a few decades ago during the contrived so-called Cold War. When it comes to military spending, the tradition of the iron triangle — Congress, the Pentagon, and defense industries — joining to push costly weaponry is nothing new, Brad Knickerbocker wrote for The Christian Science Monitor.

BPC directors hail from Lockheed Martin, L-3 Communications (a spook merchant), JPMorgan Securities, and the Rockefeller connected Aspen Institute.

Resistance to the end my brothers n sisters! Peace.

I feel compelled to share as much information regarding the reclamation of the country that I love and the planet I love as I can. Most of my political posts are at High Strangeness, but, some things are important enough to share here at WATT, too. This is one of them. Do not be hoodwinked. Think.

It’s just so damn important… you must forgive me as I get rather emotional about the theft of our very existence by the select few. That leads to stressed verbiage usually and advocating things that need to be advocated, like an outright revolution, 1776-style, and other things that shouldn’t really be mentioned in a forum such as this.

Anyway, please, please educate yourself… you will find that it’s all documented and very frighteningly true.

So what can be done against such power?

Spreading the word is your best bet, because there are a hell of a lot more people than them, and if we protoslaves realize who the masters are, we can then look right past puppets like Bush, Clinton and Obama and cut those responsible, in other words, the still-beating heart of the beast, right out of its putrid fat bastard body.

Video liner notes:

The Obama Deception is a hard-hitting film that completely destroys the myth that Barack Obama is working for the best interests of the American people.

The Obama phenomenon is a hoax carefully crafted by the captains of the New World Order. He is being pushed as savior in an attempt to con the American people into accepting global slavery.

We have reached a critical juncture in the New World Order’s plans. It’s not about Left or Right: it’s about a One World Government. The international banks plan to loot the people of the United States and turn them into slaves on a Global Plantation.

Covered in this film: who Obama works for, what lies he has told, and his real agenda. If you want to know the facts and cut through all the hype, this is the film for you.

Watch the Obama Deception and learn how:

– Obama is continuing the process of transforming America into something that resembles Nazi Germany, with forced National Service, domestic civilian spies, warrantless wiretaps, the destruction of the Second Amendment, FEMA camps and Martial Law.

– Obama’s handlers are openly announcing the creation of a new Bank of the World that will dominate every nation on earth through carbon taxes and military force.

– International bankers purposefully engineered the worldwide financial meltdown to bankrupt the nations of the planet and bring in World Government.

– Obama plans to loot the middle class, destroy pensions and federalize the states so that the population is completely dependent on the Central Government.

– The Elite are using Obama to pacify the public so they can usher in the North American Union by stealth, launch a new Cold War and continue the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.

I like this video, complied by LunaCognita, as it shows some rarely seen and most wondrous objects, quite a lot of them, actually, all captured by our intrepid explorers… It’s called Aliens in the NASA Archives – More Stunning NASA UFO Anomalies Captured On Film.

Nice, eh? Some rare clips in there… And now, speaking of rare clips…

We are led to a video called NASA STS-88 black transforming UFO, which presents a fascinating series of photographs obtained by the crew of space shuttle mission STS-88… photographs which, in my opinion, depict images of just what the title sequence spells out… a vehicle belonging to our very own black space program, run by the US Navy which has been active for decades. The fleet whose files got Gary McKinnon in trouble with the monster. The program who amongst other things are believe it or not, right now, mining, on the Moon, on Mars and on a moon of Jupiter, as presented and discussed at length by the authority on the matter, zorgon, out of ATS.

Dig it…

Depleted Uranium, or DU, determined to be ultra-dangerous over sixty years ago and therefore naturally developed into a wide variety of astoundingly horrific weapons, is distributed quite liberally on various helpless and innocent populations by our heroic US military forces and by Isreal’s IDF.

These two groups are the main forces of death and destruction on this planet. They don’t care about what this stuff does, as long as their oil and gas is secure and their hoaxes and lies are safe in covering it all up. Don’t see this on the news, do you? Ever wonder why not?

May they the inventors and officials responsible for this reap -exactly- what they’ve sown.

And we wonder why the aliens don’t land.

This is Citizen Investigation Team’s latest compilation regarding the psy-op false-flag attack known as 9/11, made from the massive amounts of evidence they’ve gathered – independent, verifiable evidence – via in-person investigation over the last three years or so. Said evidence has always been thoroughly researched and well presented. It also destroys, utterly and without question, the government’s and media’s well-scripted line of horse-pucky.

It’s pretty much all covered here within these 81 minutes – the true path of the plane, why it couldn’t have done what it was alleged to do, the staging of certain side attractions, including the ludicrous taxicab story… all of the juicy highlights.

I’ve always thought the score that they’d had with obtaining the direct evidence for the staging of the lightpoles was a standout. Sadly, the man who recorded said evidence and gave it away was found shortly after… “suicided” …at a young age, leaving a young family torn apart.

His photographic legacy demonstrates quite clearly that pole number one was not there as the bombs that made the holes in the building went off and as the jet that drew all eyes made its well hidden getaway. Not quite that well hidden, however, as, fortunately, a Pentagon police officer reported seeing it… although not having high enough clearance meant he didn’t quite realize exactly what he was looking at. Quite understandable. Actually, it’s so, so good that he didn’t have high enough clearance… as he could therefore tell us his truth. It was planned to work with precision; and work it did, even down to later “news” and “revelations.”

Such is the nature of power here nowadays. Ruthless. Vicious. Treasonous. Worthy of a nice high speed chunk of lead delivered right through the cranium by a Patriot. But I digress again, sorry, folks for getting off track… it still upsets me, that day.

We can, if America is still really America, receive our proper justice for this horror without shots being fired. See the CIT website for explanations, complete expositions on all the evidence referenced in the film and full instructions on taking it to the politicoid, suit and parrothead lifeforms…

We are encouraged to freely download this, burn copies to DVD and send ’em off to politicians and media people with demands for action and justice. Sounds good to me!

Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis have compiled a most comprehensive film, one which completely annihilates the most ludicrous “conspiracy theory” ever thought up… namely, the official government one.

Citizen Investigation Team offers this compilation of independent verifiable evidence exposing the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon as a psychological black operation of deception.

Consider this a non-violent call to action as everyone is encouraged to copy and distribute this conclusive evidence to media, political, and authority figures while first requesting, and then demanding a response. Inaction by authorities and media to this information amounts to a crime of obstruction of justice so it’s time they are held accountable.

This is particularly the case as more innocents are slaughtered and additional billions of dollars are spent on a fraudulent “war on terror” perpetuated under any other name.

Please visit CitizenInvestigationTeam.com for full resources and a step-by-step strategy as to how you can take action on this critical life or death information.

It was indeed… I think spring has finally sprung here… ooh, I can do the car… start on the yard… great… maybe more dudes’ll feel that warmth and find they need a web guy or an editor guy… anyway, Mars beckons, so…

I found a graph I was looking for… showing surface temps. It’s from the bolometer part of the USGS-operated TES instrument package on the Mars Global Surveyor way back in August of 2001.

MGS TES thermal data

Not too chilly, really, in spring, summer and fall. Much more than a bit nipply in winter, though, I admit… ha! In fact, instruments also reported in the same month that it can even be up to 30°C/86°F at the equator. Just like sunny California, eh? One can also see a thermal image here showing 0°C/32°F almost right down to the pole, which is itself very cold.

This mile-wide lake of snowmelt water would be a great place to fish, I think. It was found by Paul Mcleod on an MGS image of the south polar region in Martian spring. Probably catch some pretty odd stuff, eh? Hehe. Like that eel-looking critter that’s been popular of late, maybe. I think we should go up there and check it out… reels in hand. This isn’t my favorite lake, actually, (we’ll go there later), but it’s nice and was close at hand.

M09-01354. This 1 mile wide lake of snowmelt water was found by Paul Mcleod on an MGS image of the south polar region in Martian spring.

MGS info happily re-discovered via a long-overdue visit to Holger Isenberg’s site. He’s one of the original Mars investigators. Tons of cool stuff.

Liquid water on Mars.

Well, well, well… what’s all this then, eh? The three pictures shown above were snapped by the Phoenix Lander on the surface of Mars, the planet they’ve been telling us is colder than a witch’s tit and dry as a bone…

Of course we Mars loonies have been spotting liquid standing water for ages nowin lakes even… and our august agency’s own instrumentation regularly records temperatures conducive to a nice day out. They leave that last bit out, of course. (Hopefully I can find the link for it)

I’ve never been too strong on the idea of NASA ever really disclosing anything striking to us in a timely fashion… if ever… considering the sums they’ve invested since day 1 in airbrushing photos of anything of interest, halting radio and television transmissions, making the Mars photos red (which really ticks me off) and such… fortunately things get missed… but… if this keeps up, maybe it’s a sign that they really will let it all out someday.

We can only hope. I’m of the opinion that we come from there, ’round about the time when things got nasty up there… could that be why? I kind of doubt it, but there are strange, archaic policies in place, so it might be a consideration.

Anyhow, I think this a most wonderful development and look forward to more! Hey, do ya think they’re aimin’ to live down the epithet Never A Straight Answer? Ha!

Pic and below lifted from National Geographic

Liquid droplets seem to form and move on the leg of the Phoenix Mars lander, as seen in images taken on days 8, 31, and 44 (seen above from left to right) of the craft’s mission.

Scientists think the water could stay liquid even in the frigid Martian arctic because of its high concentration of perchlorates, salts that acts like antifreeze.
