Go ahead; I can always use the extra work.
Anyhow, what I'm so excited about today is the discovery of exopolitics and specifically a lawyer who practices exopolitics to the point where is is considered an expert on them.
But before we get into exopolitics specifically, a word on how I learned about it: Via The Time-Traveling Lawyer:
A lot of people have a hard time trusting lawyers as it is, but what about one who claims he was part of a secret government time travel program when he was a kid?
Since 2004, Seattle attorney Andrew Basiago has been publicly claiming that from the time he was 7 to when he was 12, he participated in "Project Pegasus," a secret U.S. government program that he says worked on teleportation and time travel under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
That's the lead paragraph in the HuffPo story on this exciting development in time-travel, law, and my ability to not do any work ever again ever, because we have teleportation and we can use it to time-travel.
Basiago's achievements as a lawyer are not inconsequential and are related to the ongoing alien theme here, in that in 2008, Basiago published a paper (described here as a landmark one, at that, which it is) proving that there is life on Mars. When not writing books and helping others write books, Basiago also found time (get it?!) to travel back to Abe Lincoln's era, when he was a kid, doing so 7 or 8 times, including trip's to Ford's Theater on the night of the assassination. He finds proof that he did this in a photograph of Gettysburg he says shows him:
That's him on the left, apparently wearing sneakers because while the Department of Defense was in charge of teleporting kids to Civil War Battlefields (possibly holographically, it's all a bit confusing), they weren't in charge of making sure kids were dressed appropriately for the occasion. Said Basiago:
"I had been dressed in period clothing, as a Union bugle boy.... I attracted so much attention at the Lincoln speech site at Gettysburg -- wearing over-sized men's street shoes -- that I left the area around the dais and walked about 100 paces over to where I was photographed in the Josephine Cogg image of Lincoln at Gettysburg."
Here's the complete photo that detail is taken from:
And here is a picture of himself at about that age that Andrew Basiago himself presented:
Basiago did this time-traveling, as I said, possibly holographically (asked how he came back, he couldn't really answer) but definitely using some old stuff Nikola Tesla left behind.
Tesla, the man responsible for beating Edison and thus for our using alternating current as opposed to direct current as the standard for electricity, was interested in teleportation and had an early theory that presaged quantum mechanics, suggesting that light could be a particle and wave. He proposed a "Wall Of Light" that could be used to travel in time and space, and that's what Basiago says the Department of Defense built based on Tesla's writings.
Tesla was certainly bright; he invented alternating current (and proved it was safe by letting it run through his body in tests), came up with a radio-controlled toy boat, and found a way to transmit electricity directly through the Earth (which, remember, we're calling Planet Awesome now). Tesla discovered "terrestrial stationary waves." From History.com:
By this discovery he proved that the Earth could be used as a conductor and made to resonate at a certain electrical frequency. He also lit 200 lamps without wires from a distance of 25 miles (40 km) and created man-made lightning, producing flashes measuring 135 feet (41 metres).Tesla's genius was so unpredictable and outrageous that people weren't ever sure what to believe about him;
Caustic criticism greeted his speculations concerning communication with other planets, his assertions that he could split the Earth like an apple, and his claim of having invented a death ray capable of destroying 10,000 airplanes at a distance of 250 miles.
Nonetheless, the government was so worried that after Tesla's death, the FBI monitored his estate to make sure none of his writings fell into the hands of the Axis.
So if anyone could make a "Wall Of Light" that would teleport people around, it would be Tesla.
What really caught my eye in reading bits and pieces about Tesla was this phrase:
Tesla always claimed to a Venusian probably arrived on a space ship
Which I found on this site, which goes on to claim all kinds of stuff about Tesla's claims to be an alien and to have talked to aliens; I wasn't able to find anything on any credible site about whether Tesla actually claimed he was from another planet.
All of which goes to show that we need a Bureau of Exopolitics, and luckily for us, there is one:
Dr.Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of 'Exopolitics', the political study of the key actors, institutions and processes associated with extraterrestrial life. His interest in exopolitics evolved out of his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its relationship to an extraterrestrial presence that is not acknowledged to the general public, elected officials or even senior military officials.At Exopolitics.org, you can find the accumulated knowledge you'll need to also become an expert on Expolitics, including links to articles about how Canadian newspapers deliberately insert typos to make exopoliticians look bad,and articles like:
His groundbreaking Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (Dandelion Books, 2004) was the first published book on exopolitics and explained the political implications of extraterrestrial life. His more recent, Exposing U.S. Government Policies on Extraterrestrial Life (Exopolitics Institute, 2009) takes exopolitics to a new level of sophistication by revealing how the world's most powerful nation secretly manages information concerning extraterrestrial life and technology. Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar.
Exopolitics Comment 117 (April 10, 2012) Pentagon plans for Alien invasion exist according to military professor. (1100 words).
Exopolitics Study 13 (Jan 18, 2012) Trillion dollar lawsuit exposes secret Bilderberg Gold Treaty & funding of extraterrestrial projectAll the best countries have an Exopolitics site, even Portugal. And it's a good thing, too, because without such organizations, we might never have known about the lawsuit filed in 2011 which asserted that the Chinese Nationalists during World War II gave the US $134,500,000,000 in gold, and which gold was apparently converted to US Bonds and then intercepted when two Japanese tourists carrying that amount of bonds were caught on a train in Italy.
Here's the crazy thing: That lawsuit exists.
It's case number 11 CIV 8500, and was filed by "Neil F. Keenan, Individually and as Agent for The Dragon Family, citizens of foreign states"
(I will point out that the article I linked to before doesn't explain what The Dragon Family is and I will also remind you of David Icke's Reptoid Hypothesis.)
And the lawsuit names sixteen different defendants ranging from Silvio Berlusconi,
To the then-head of the United Nations.
Here is the actual first paragraph of the Complaint:
This is a civil claim arising out of the concerted, knowing, malicious scheme and international conspiracy engaged in by the Defendants for the designed purpose of defrauding plaintiff KEENAN, the designated Agent of his Principal, the "Dragon Family," for the express purpose of expropriating, stealing and converting certain negotiable financial instruments lawfully owned by the Dragon Family and entrusted to KEENAN in early 2009.
These assets ... had been intended for participation in select, registered and authorized Private Placement Investment Programs (or "PPPs") for the benefit of a wide range of global humanitarian purposes. At the time of the criminal and deceitful acts of the Defendants, the approximate face value of the stolen DFFI was One Hundred Forty-Five and One Half Billion ($145,500,000,000.00) United States Dollars with an approximate accrued interest value of One Trillion ($1,000,000,000,000.00) United States Dollars.
So while most of the Exopolitics sites call this a billion dollar suit, it's actually a trillion dollar suit. It's a thousand times more important than Exopoliticians claim.
(Is that a cover-up? You decide...)(Yes, it is.)
That case is still pending as we sit here today, and it's an important one to follow because it makes clear the link between Eisenhower's so-called "emergency dental visit" when he actually met with aliens, and the plan for the secretive Dragon Family to use the US court system to finally blow the lid off this international conspiracy by deliberately letting the gold be stolen:
The Chinese gold transferred to the US Federal Reserve Bank in the mid-1930s is only the tip of the iceberg. Entrusting the Federal Reserve notes and bonds to Keenan appears to have been calculated gamble. In fact,.. the actions of the Dragon Family [are ]an “elaborate sting operation.” They were fully aware that their bonds would very likely be taken from Keenan at some point, but believed that the eventual lawsuit would be the catalyst for the rest of the world learning about the way in which China’s and other national gold reserves have been secretly taken out of circulation for decades.
The method that the world has been using to take the Chinese gold out of circulation appears to be the "Bilderberg Treaty."
Supposedly just a get-together of the rich and powerful to discuss events, the Bilderberg Group actually, according to Expoltics.org Study Paper 13, met first to keep 85% of the world's gold reserves hidden from the public and used for "black ops."
Black Ops like "Operation Paperclip," a Henry Kissinger-led project to recruit Nazi scientists to the Allied war effort while Nelson Rockefeller was looking for looted Nazi gold in South America.
(I am having a serious amount of fun just typing this post.)
Rockefeller and Kissinger would go on to bigger positions, of course, but all of Rockefeller's subsequent work as a billionaire spy/politician was simply a cover for his role in coordinating the US' response to extraterrestrial life -- a role that was necessary, given that the aforementioned meeting between Ike and the aliens had been prompted by the aliens' concern over America's growing thermonuclear ability. (The aliens didn't like nukes, the dirty hippies!)
I know it all sounds confusing, but that's because you haven't properly studied your Exopolitics. Also, a little confusion is to be expected when the military is mucking around with the time stream, as they obviously are. Remember David Basiago, from way back at the beginning of this post? He very coherently pointed out that some of the proof of time-travel can be seen, for example, in the very fact that Iraq never had weapons of mass destruction:
"I only know about how the time travel technology was used during my involvement with Project Pegasus, so this is only speculation," he said. "But it's possible that 'forward intelligence' showed [Iraq leader Saddam] Hussein using the weapons of mass destruction, but our military went in and toppled him before he could use them."
"Forward intelligence" is code for time travel. But you knew that, right?
Here is the WHAMMY! question today, but first: Andrew Leon correctly pointed out that he's the only one who wagered -- so only he can get any points. But as the Random Numbers have decreed that Answer Number 4 will WHAMMY!, if you want to get your answer in quickly, you can maybe make him WHAMMY! even though you cannot get (or lose) any points for answering (in)correctly.
Michael Offutt's Slipstream, which I finally bought and started reading last night; I'm five pages in and it's really good.
So here's the question:
What was the number of the protocol droid that greeted Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan after they boarded the Trade Federation craft, and which actress provided the voice?
