Booms are Back

Since the arrival of Planet X into the inner solar system, mysterious booms have been heard. For example these reports from the Great Lakes region were posted on a message board on October 12, 2003.

I am just west of Duluth, and we have been hearing that same thing for about 20 hours now. It´s not so much a sound, but a vibration, you can feel under your feet. For the last few days, I and my family, and my co-workers have been talking about this loud thwomping sound. It has been going for days now, and sounds like we are about to be invaded by indians on horses, but the sound is too big. I figure it is coming off the lake, maybe big waves hitting the rocks, but we have never heard waves shake the ground like that, and it just keeps going, like a drum-beat. The whole damn town is talking.

And this mysterious boom in London was heard a year later, on October 13, 2004.

Riddle as Massive Blast Rocks Homes
October 13, 2004
Police and the fire service received dozens of calls from the public about the blast which happened at 7.30am. But despite efforts by both services to locate the source nothing was found. The British Geological Society is investigating. Though none of their earthquake signals were triggered, it said that it may have been too shallow to register on their measurements. Another possibility is that the blast could have come from old mine workings. There are disused shafts in the Walkden area and at Agecroft where a pit closed at the beginning of the 1990s. One caller to a radio station has claimed that she saw something falling from the sky.

And a month later booms were heard on November 10, 2004 in Fort Wayne, Texas.

Boom is Back
November 10, 2004
Newschannel 15 and the Fort Wayne Police Department have each received dozens of phone calls about the noises. The Fort Wayne Police have no answers.

Per the Zetas, these are caused by air clapping over land that is adjusting in elevation due to the ground heaving, causing voids in the air over the land which then come together to clap. This is equivalent to a thunder clap, as the same process of clapping air is involved. When booms happen over water, the process is the same, but here is due to a sudden drop in sea level caused by Earth movement under the sea.

ZetaTalk Explanation 6/15/1996: Increasingly as the pole shift nears, the Earth will give evidence of the compression and tension in her surface by what humans will perceive to be sonic booms. The mechanism is in fact the same, clapping air masses, the same mechanism that produces thunder. Where thunder is caused by air masses separated by what is essentially a vacuum created by the superheating lightning bolt, and where sonic booms are caused by a compressed air mass pushed in front of the plane exploding back to equalize with the thin air mass trailing the plane, pre-cataclysm booms are caused by heaving in large bodies of water. Earthquakes where plates are compressing are measured by humans as the friction causes jolting, but for every compression adjustment there is, somewhere, a widening in a rift. Most often these rifts lie underwater, as water fills low lying places. A widening rift does not jolt the bordering plates, it is a silent adjustment. However, the sea water rushing to fill the new void has an effect on the air masses above, creating a thin air mass and causing the air on all sides of this thin air space to rush in, and clap!

Recently booms have emerged along the New Madrid Fault line and the diagonal stress lines that the Zetas have predicted for the N American continent as it approaches a major adjustment in the New Madrid area. The Zetas have stated that N America is being pulled at a diagonal, with the New England area being pulled toward the east while Mexico is pulled to the west.

Mystery Source, Likely Sonic Boom, Shook Southeast Missouri Last Week
March 10, 2008
At 2:48 p.m. last Wednesday people for more than 200 miles, from Forrest City, Ark., to Cape Girardeau, felt what they thought was an earthquake. Scientists at the Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) at the University of Memphis in Tennessee know it was not. The disturbance was first recorded on a seismic station in Pemiscot Bayou, in the lower part of the Bootheel. It then traveled southeast at about 1,115 feet per second to a station in Lennox, Tenn., and was eventually recorded on all of the CERI's 100 seismic stations in the New Madrid Fault Zone.

During the same week when the New Madrid Fault region was experiencing a boom, New Jersey also experienced a mysterious boom.

Early Morning Shake Rattles Some Residents
Tuesday, March 11, 2008
It all started with a loud "bang!" In the early-morning darkness Monday, residents in the Pedricktown section of the township felt their homes shake, some said rather violently. The event, which occurred between 5:30 and 6 a.m., scared many. Was it an earthquake? An explosion? Perhaps as unsettling as the actual event is the fact that by late Monday afternoon there was no real answer as to what had actually caused the homes to shake. A spokesperson for the United States Geological Survey had no records of any seismic activity on Monday, or even Sunday, in the entire state of New Jersey.

The Zetas have stated that the land along the eastern seaboard is being pulled down due to the Atlantic being pulled apart at the Atlantic Rift. This happens more dramatically closer to the equator, per the Zetas, as continental drift is more pronounced there. Thus the pull on Florida is more pronounced, and there is a break-off point in Pennsylvania. Land to the north of Pennsylvania rises up as it is freed from restraint, while land to the south of Pennsylvania is pulled down. Thus, there is a point near Pennsylvania where rock would be bent and thus would be snapping.

ZetaTalk Explanation, 2001: Continental rip, which is what occurs during pole shifts rather than continental drift, occurs down the length of the Atlantic Ocean. Prior to the rip, there is tension and consequent dragging down of the coast line on either side. The East Coast of the US south of the New England area will suffer during the pole shift, due to this general stretching that the plates under the Atlantic during the crustal tension ahead of the shift. With the crust resisting a ripping apart so that the land on the edges of the Atlantic Ocean are pulled down. This is most intense the closer one gets to the equator. This will bring the islands in the British Isles underwater, and along the southeastern US too for an astonishing drop in level beyond what the inhabitant think possible. The New England states will find themselves bouncing up during the shift, due to the quick ripping of the already separating St. Lawrence Seaway prior to the shift, where the southern states will find themselves pulled under the water prior to the shift. The entire peninsula from central Pennsylvania north, will experience a bounce, but being on the edge of this drama, Pennsylvania will have its toes in water but its head above water.

If booms have been heard from Seattle to Duluth and from New Jersey to New Madrid due to stress on the rock, then what is the ultimate outcome? Per the Zetas, the N American continent is locked at the top, so cannot shift or roll to reduce stress as the Atlantic widens. Thus, the N American continent will adjust during the pole shift, and in great quakes prior to the pole shift, by ripping the St Lawrence Seaway open and pulling the continent at a diagonal along the New Madrid Fault.

ZetaTalk Prediction 2/10/2006: The stress on the N American plate will resolve by ripping. Ripping the St. Lawrence Seaway open. Pulling the SE down into the crumbling Caribbean and into the widening Atlantic, as neither of these sinking fronts will be able to support the edge of the weighty N American plate. There is pressure along the West Coast, of course, and as the N American plate confronts the compressing Pacific, this will only result in the predictable volcanic increases and West Coast earthquakes. But the primary drama preceding the pole shift will be the ripping action that a plate unable to move must endure. The notable area of catastrophe during this is the eastern half of the continental US. From Houston to Chicago to New England, the diagonal pull will tear the underpinning of cities and create a catastrophe for the US that will make the New Orleans disaster appear trivial. A widening Seaway also does not affect just those land masses bordering the Seaway, as buckling occurs inland and afar. What does man assume caused the Black Hills to be so rumpled, with the appearance of a recent bucking and heaving? This is the center of a land plate! The tearing of the Seaway does not end at Duluth, MN, it travels underground to S Dakota!

McCain's Senility

Although gaffe's indicating confusion on the part of presidential candidate John McCain have appeared in the past, one occurred this past week that was thoroughly documented and has been much under discussion in the press. This particular gaffe by McCain was also one that had occurred repeatedly. The gaffe involved McCain's understanding of Iran's influence on the Iraq insurgency. Per McCain, Iran is training al Qaeda, but this is incorrect. Al Qaeda is Sunni, and Iran is of the Shia sect, and the two certainly don't mix or support each other. These gaffes by McCain are not a mere slip of the tongue from fatigue or momentary confusion. They were repeated, even after the media asked for a correction. McCain in fact had to be set straight by Joe Lieberman, who was accompanying him on the Middle East trip and whispered in his ear.

Gaffe #1: on Monday, March 17, 2008 McCain stated his misunderstanding on Hugh Hewitt's radio show.

AUDIO: McCain March 17 Gaffe

Gaffe #2: on Tuesday March 18, 2008 McCain stated his misunderstanding in a press conference in Jordon.

McCain Conflates Shiite Iran And Sunni Al Qaeda, Needs To Be Corrected By Lieberman
March 18, 2008
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has spent a majority of his presidential campaign trying to convince voters that he is the most qualified to tackle foreign policy issues. Of course, McCain's supposed prescient understanding of foreign policy has been proven faulty over and over. Today, as the Washington Post's Cameron Barr and Michael Shear report, McCain further undermined his claim to be the best qualified on matters of foreign policy, when he repeated a mistaken claim that Iran was training al Qaeda fighters. He made the same assertion on right-wing Hugh Hewitt's radio show last night [March 17]. The "common knowledge" McCain cites is simply false. Far from working together, Iran and al Qaeda represent opposing sides in the Iraq civil war. Al Qaeda is a Sunni Muslim extremist group, while Iran is ruled by Shiites, where they make up 90 percent of the population. McCain, the so-called foreign policy expert, is confusing reports that Iran was aiding Shiite insurgents in Iraq - one of the groups that virulently opposes al Qaeda.

Gaffe #3: on Wednesday March 19, 2008 McCain issues a press release.

On War Anniversary
March 19, 2008
Today in Iraq, America and our allies stand on the precipice of winning a major victory against radical Islamic extremism. The security gains over the past year have been dramatic and undeniable. Al Qaeda and Shia extremists - with support from external powers such as Iran - are on the run but not defeated.

How could McCain, who has made more than one trip to Iraq and spoken to the generals there, be so confused about this matter? Should this be the man picking up the red phone in the White House? Lest this latest gaffe be considered just a misunderstanding, there is a report from Iraq, posted on both the Voice of the White House and Jeff Rense sites, describing another senile moment for John McCain. Where this report is unsubstantiated, the repeated gaffes by McCain on al Qaeda in Iran seem to point to a senility problem. It is now well known that Reagan was pre-Alzheimer's when in the White House, requiring his staff to place yellow tape along the floor where he was to walk to the podium, and to have cards on his desk with pre-written statements to make to various individuals who might call. Reagan died of Alzheimer's disease recently, after having been secluded since his days in the White House.

Green Zone Follies
February 25, 2008
Here is just a personal vignette of an experience I and my psychologist buddy had with the Republican probable nominee, Senator McCain. There was the Senator all by himself, sitting on a folding chair by a card table. Then his lips moved but he said nothing. He looked up and smiled. (My wife's grandfather did just that.) And the Senator may have been sitting right near us but believe me, he was somewhere else. Then he began a conversation with someone who wasn't there. We started to go back the way we came when some civilian came in. "It's time to go to the meeting, John," but McCain just smiled and kept on talking to the table. The civilian said, "All right, gentlemen, time to go. The Senator is very tired and has jet lag." And when we left, the Senator was talking complete nonsense. Later, one of the staff personnel told both of us that the Senator had "a little accident" and he had to change his pants. My friend, who is a pro, said he was very obviously suffering from pre-Alzheimer's and believe me, although I am not trained, this one was a pure space case. They must know this.

What insight can the Zetas give us on this matter?

ZetaTalk Insight 3/22/2008: John McCain has been protected from exposure during this campaign. The early dropout of most of the Republican candidates has allowed him to escape the hard campaigning knocks that Clinton and Obama are throwing at each other. The earlier debates are notable as a chance for each candidate to air a view, not truly debate. He has not had to answer charges as Obama has, nor had to evade them actively as Clinton has. Media clips are of McCain making a statement, at most. As those close to the campaign of McCain are aware of his mental lapses, they will try to protect him from exposure by limiting debates with Obama going into the general election. They will try to assuage any concerns Republicans have about McCain's obvious senility with a strong vice president on the ticket. Senility is most obvious when a sufferer is in new or strange places, not grounded. When in on familiar ground, the sufferer has many mental pathways to rely upon. Thus when in his home state of Arizona, or in the Senate, or talking about issues familiar to his senate role, he seems solid. But when aware from home in the Middle East, he has been befuddled and caught at this. In that the general election will bring up subjects he is not versed in, like the economy, and force him to at least a few debates with Obama, there is strong likelihood of more slips where his early senility will express itself.

Obama Breach

Barack Obama's passport files, considered personal and highly confidential, were breached 3 times during 2008.

Obama Campaign Demands Probe into State Department Passport Records Breach
March 20, 2008
Two contract employees of the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs have been fired, and a third has been disciplined after it was discovered that they accessed Sen. Barack Obama's passport records without a specific need to do so. Sean McCormack, spokesman for the State Department, confirmed to the Associated Press three acts of "imprudent curiosity" by the employees in question, occurring on January 9, February 21, and March 14 of this year.

Regulations require this type of breach on a very public person such as Obama to be reported up the line, but Secretary of State Condi Rice only heard about this after the last breach on March 14, breach. Why would this be? Where the investigation is just beginning, it is notable that the first two breaches were overseen by a former Clinton ambassador.

State Department Official In Charge During Two Of The Breaches
An Ambassador Under Clinton
March 21, 2008
After the news broke Thursday that two employees of the State Department had been fired and a third disciplined for accessing passport records of Sen. Barack Obama, MSNBC noted a Clinton connection to the story. The network reported that Maura Harty, the State Department official in charge of the Bureau Of Consular Affairs during the first two breaches of Obama's passport, had served as an ambassador under Bill Clinton. Harty was a consular affairs chief until the end of last month when she retired from foreign service work. Before her stint as the assistant secretary of state of consular affairs, Hardy was an ambassador to Paraguay under President Bill Clinton. Harty served as Clinton's ambassador to Paraguay from 1997-1999. Harty began serving as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs in November 2002.

What is striking about these breaches is that three different individuals, on three different occasions, tried to access the files. Could this be coincidence? There is an additional pattern that each breach followed a dramatic win by Obama. January 9, 2008 followed his Iowa win. February 21, 2008 followed the Potomac states victory. And March 14, 2008 followed his win in Mississippi. Certainly the press by the Clinton campaign to find some dirt on Obama during these times would be intense. A similar breach occurred in 1992 against Bill Clinton when he was the Democratic candidate against George Herbert Bush, who was at that time the sitting president. After this breach, which hit the press, it became policy to flag the files of very public individuals so that any breach would become know to superiors in the State Department.

ZetaTalk Comment 3/22/2008: Maura Harty, the former Bill Clinton ambassador to Paraguay, was leaving anyway. If her suppression of the first two breaches into Obama's file had been discovered, she would have been excused a few weeks early. What did she have to gain? Another Clinton appointment! If one examines her bio, it is clear that her ambassadorship was the highlight of her career. For anyone doubting that the Clinton campaign was behind this breach, examine the facts. Once this Clintonite, Harty, was no longer the supervisor, the next breach was properly reported. Three individuals, not connected to each other, were "curious" enough to take a risk. Each had been assured they would be financially compensated, and if they stuck to their story about being "curious" they could not be prosecuted. They were all promised a healthy financial payment for any information they gleaned. Harty covered herself by terminating these contractors, and for some slight that would not get them into trouble. Thus they all thought they had the crime covered. But after Harty's scheduled exit as supervisor, the Clinton campaign still did not have enough information and pressed yet another contractor. This time, without a Clintonite at the helm, the whistle was blown and Obama was informed of the breach. Will there be a prosecution? Not unless one of the co-conspirators confesses, which is unlikely. What was the Clinton campaign looking for? A passport file contains personal information on place of birth and social security number, none of which is that difficult to come by. It also contains the stated reason for any foreign travel, and this is what the campaign was looking for. Obama traveled extensively to Africa, the Middle East, and Russian satellite countries. Did Obama intend to contact any organization with terrorist ties? The Clinton campaign certainly hoped so. Hillary is losing and is desperate to start a smear campaign against Obama, but this episode will prove to be disastrous for Hillary.
