Will the Real Crisis Actors Please Stand Up?

It’s been almost 20 years since the massacre at Columbine High School. That was in 1999, when cable news was really just beginning to sinks its teeth into American culture.

It was a new format, and for the first time such horrific news was in your face, everywhere you went, all the time. People watched in rapt attention as 24 hour coverage of the shootings went on for days and weeks afterward. Continuous replays of audio and video of the event, witness testimonies, candle light vigils, pundits contemplating every angle and facet of the horror were a new thing for us at that time.

It was a sustained psychic blitzkrieg happening in your living room, in your personal space, in the comfort and security of your own home. It was a new form of spiritual warfare. Shocked, stunned, and frozen, the psychic damage sank deep in to the collective conscience foreshadowing a dystopian future. The damage went far beyond what happened at the school.

I don’t think we ever really recovered from Columbine. Instead, I think we just hardened ourselves a great deal, and learned to accept an anxious ever-present fear. We built up shelters of beliefs around ourselves to try to serve as protection from such shock in the again, and we knew more was on its way.

Fast-forward to the now, and we’re all pretty well-versed in how to deal with the next shooting. Everyone has their beliefs on standby, and everyone is ready to go with their narrative. It happens every time. It’s a repeating loop.

The bulk of mainstream media, which is undeniably left-leaning (it that term even means anything to you), gets right after their political agenda of gun control. As if guns are the only factor here. At the same time, the self-proclaimed alternative media sticks to its formula of picking out the conspiratorial aspects of the event. As if absolute truth can be uncovered by carefully examining every pixel in CNN’s predictably biased coverage of the event.

Before the shooting has even stopped, both sides of the media battle are already firing salvos of spin. No one ever wins, though, we just keep entrenching ourselves deeper in our cultural divide.

It’s a remarkable and bizarre situation. Kind of like a Chinese finger trap. The more each side presses their narrative, the more entrenched each side becomes. The more stuck we become, the more vicious the struggle becomes.

But what’s really happening here is spiritual warfare. We’re being goaded into subscribing to beliefs about the truth, when the truth is impossible to grasp. Our attention is being sucked from the affairs of our personal lives and sequestered for deployment in an externalized struggle for an intangible prize.

And the term ‘crisis actors’ is a recurring meme in events like this. Every time. Sure, there is no doubt that the big media uses actors to shape public opinion. Just look at how phony the big news anchors are.

But we already know the media lies, and we know it fabricates, and omits, and stages, and we know it does what it can to use human tragedy to serve its financial and political interests. This is true for both sides of the argument.

We’re not supposed to be able to sort through this. We’re not meant to recover from these horrific terrors that keep on coming. The end game is an ever-piercing wedge of division by fear, with actors on both sides working the crisis to their advantage.

Much of it has to do with money, with clicks, traffic, and eyeballs on the TV screen. Beyond that, though, it’s about using every crisis to inflict more psychic damage into a population who is so distracted from their own lives and purpose that they hang on every word of a corrupt media just to pass the time.

The real crisis actors are the ones who act as though they know for certain the end-all-be-all truth. The real crisis actors are the ones who secretly look forward to the next crisis, so they can act as though they care, jump the gun, and capitalize on mass fear and anxiety. The real crisis actors are the ones feeding off your fear, your anxiety and the negative chi each event like this generates.

What very few seem to want to acknowledge, though, is that these type of mass killings keep happening because our culture is sick, toxic, polluted and distorted. No one has a purpose or a good reason to live. Life is cheap when war is the health of the state.

And so, our sense of community is busted. We are divided. The damage is done. Unity is a joke. And the individual is lost in a sea of meaninglessness.

This doesn’t self-correct until the individual chooses to step out of the hamster wheel of fear and speculation, then moves on beyond the news narratives to create meaning and happiness in their own lives.

Havana Syndrome again? CIA officers are mowed down by a mysterious disease

A CIA officer in Moscow experienced symptoms of the so-called “Havana syndrome” in 2017. This became known to The New York Times with reference to sources in diplomatic circles.

CIA officer Mark Polimepulos, who helped lead covert operations in Russia and Europe, complained about the manifestation of mysterious symptoms. According to the newspaper, in December 2017, he felt severe dizziness, which later developed into a prolonged migraine, forcing him to retire. At that time, Polymerpoulos was 48 years old.

It is noted that such a case was not the only one. Similar symptoms were experienced by the staff of the American ambassadors in Cuba and China in 2016-2018. However, the exact number of cases and the place where this happened is not named. It is alleged that the US diplomats have tried to influence in a similar way around the world.

At the same time, the US State Department was unable to establish an unambiguous reason that caused the “Havana syndrome.” Among other things, it was assumed that the diplomats may have been exposed to an unidentified sound effect.

In 2017, it was reported that, beginning in late 2016, American diplomatic officials and their relatives in Cuba began to complain of symptoms such as hearing loss, nausea, headaches and balance disorder. 

The Associated Press received audio footage of the attack and described the harassing sounds as “the high-pitched sound of crickets combined with fingernails scratching on a board.” Then the American government suggested that Russia or China could be the culprit.

Many victims are still undergoing rehabilitation. Specialists from the University of Pennsylvania performed magnetic resonance imaging and revealed visible changes in the structure of the brain in the diplomatic missions.

Differences were found in 23 men and 17 women who complained of health problems while on diplomatic duties in Havana. Scientists have yet to figure out what causes the unusual symptoms.

How Russia and the United States nearly started a nuclear war in 1995

The Norwegian meteorological rocket incident remains the only time in history that the Russian president has activated his nuclear briefcase.

On January 25, 1995, Doomsday could have come in the world: the Russian Federation was preparing to launch a nuclear strike on the United States. How did it come about that the states that left the confrontation of the Cold War in the past and had just normalized relations with each other found themselves on the verge of mutual destruction?

The beginning of the war?

The cause of the crisis was an ordinary Norwegian meteorological rocket. Its launch from the small island of Anneia at 7 am local time (10 am Moscow time) towards Spitsbergen caused a stir in Russia.

Equipped with scientific equipment to study the aurora borealis, the Black Brant XII was similar in size to the nuclear-powered American Trident D-5 ballistic missile, intended for launch from submarines. In addition, it flew along a trajectory along which, as the Russian Defense Ministry believed, American missiles would fly in the event of a nuclear war. 

In December 1994, Norway informed 28 states, including Russia, about the planned launch, but did not give a specific date, limiting itself to specifying the period: from January 15 to February 10 of the next year. Due to bureaucratic delays, this information did not reach the Russian Missile Warning System, which sounded the alarm.

Decisive minutes

An emergency meeting with the country’s top political and military leadership was convened in the Kremlin. Defense Minister Pavel Grachev, Chief of the General Staff Mikhail Kolesnikov and President of the Russian Federation (as Supreme Commander-in-Chief) Boris Yeltsin had three strategic missile forces control terminals activated – the so-called nuclear suitcases.

The military believed the lone missile could have been fired to create an electromagnetic pulse that knocked out Russian radars and communications systems. Following it, a massive blow could be expected.

For several tense minutes, as leaders watched it flight, it was decided whether Russia would launch a nuclear strike against the United States. 

“Little is known today about what Yeltsin said at the time, given that it could have been some of the most dangerous moments in the entire history of the nuclear era,” The Washington Post journalist, David Hoffman wrote three years after the incident : “They make it clear that the Cold War nuclear readiness system continues to operate, and how catastrophic its consequences could be, despite the fact that the feud between the great powers is already over.”   

The situation was discharged only when it became clear that the rocket had gone towards Spitsbergen (not far from which it fell into the ocean). The nuclear cases have been deactivated. Russian President Boris Yeltsin (center) and Russian Defense Minister Pavel Grachev (right).

The incident with bringing Russia’s Strategic Nuclear Forces to combat readiness, soon became the property of the world community. When, four years later, the Norwegians were about to repeat their launch of Black Brant XII and reported this to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the US additionally warned all key Russian military departments about it through their channels. As a result, this time there were no unpleasant surprises.

Germany conducted exercises in case of nuclear war

Bundeswehr / Birthe Brechters

The Bundeswehr with partners in the North Atlantic Alliance ( NATO) trained in operations in a nuclear war.

The German army, together with Italian, Belgian and Dutch colleagues, conducted exercises in the event of a conflict with the use of nuclear weapons.

The location of the exercise “Steadfest Noon” was chosen airbase “Nörfenich”, where the tactical squadron of the Luftwaffe 31 “Boelcke” is located. Together with the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr, the air forces of other NATO countries, in particular, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium, took part in the exercises.

According to a report by Bild, the exercise scenario involved training procedures for safely removing nuclear weapons from storage, delivering ammunition and installing them on aircraft. The training flights took place without nuclear weapons, and in parallel with the aviation exercises at the Büchel airbase, where the tactical squadron of the Luftwaffe 51 Immelman is located, the Resilient Guard air defense systems were trained to protect the airfield from air attacks.

The training sites for the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr were not chosen by chance, since the Nörfenich airbase is a reserve storage site for the B61, a hydrogen bomb that forms the basis of nuclear weapons of the US strategic nuclear forces. 

Some of this ammunition is stationed at NATO bases in Europe. The exact number of hydrogen bombs that are stored at European sites and which ones are not reported. In Europe, the B61 is carried by Panavia Tornado fighter-bombers (pictured) and General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters.

Recall that the B61 thermonuclear bomb is the main weapon of the US strategic nuclear forces, although it entered service in 1968. Since 2012, a new guided version of the B61-12 has been under development, which will replace all B61 and B83 bombs that have been in service since 1983. It can be used both on strategic bombers and tactical aircraft. About two billion dollars were spent on the development of the 12th modification of the aerial bomb.
