Norway Spiral Deja Vu: More Unexplained Aerial Displays Appearing Worldwide

HAARP QSL Front

Copyright 12.11.2010 By Chase Kyla Hunter

Do you recall the Norway Spiral from December 9th 2009?

Get ready to have your mind blown. Apparently the 2009 Norway Spiral event [now confirmed via Wikileaks exposed us military cables to be a HAARP event – see my front page feature story] was apparently just the prelude. Something is happening in the atmosphere over every nation on earth, and it is unprecedented in human experience. We have no frame of reference for what we are seeing in the skies, and what truth researchers are posting about, but I have every reason to believe that our US military- industrial complex might possibly be sitting right in the middle of it, with the initials “Illuminati HAARP global black ops”.

These sightings are being recorded in Australia [urgent you must read this report], Canada, Asia, China and South America. The phenomenon you will see in the following videos mostly leave the term “UFO” in the dust. These are inexplicable displays of some sort of technology, with a reason, purpose and motive. Notice in the first two videos the slowly expanding or exploding “fan” of mist that makes the term “chemtrail” also rather obsolete also. Accompanying the spray of mist is an expanding wave form which can be seen undulating through the mist. I invite visitors to look at these and weigh in under comments. What I don’t want to hear is meteor, rocket blast, or missile test, as one would need to be brain-dead to realize those explanations fall short. Please also recall the bizarre visual display off the southern California coast just recently. [ Don’t buy the official “military test” news explanation given by TV broadcasters. It’s ludicrous. ]

There is also a new type of UFO sighting which people are recording. Gone are the blurry shaky blobs which could be mistaken for birds, flying debris, or just camera glare. What people everywhere are recording now are detailed, stunning, brightly lit enormous airships, many times larger than jumbo jets, often performing staggering maneuvers.

Something is going on here. Someone or some “thing” is being notified, flagged, signaled to, or communicated with via these aerial events. I’m at the ready to hear what readers think these displays might be. If these video-recorded incidents are not real, then someone somewhere is going all-out to convince the world public that they ARE real. What is the world public being psychologically prepared for? Assuming it is a “disclosure” event of some sort, are we to believe the “event” [TV show “The Event” ] is real or not?

We have television programming now also going “all-out” to convince viewers of the possibility of some EVENT that was covered up by the US government in our history. That fact does not surprise truth researchers. But the media campaign being implemented to sell such ideas to the population smacks of an “international psychological operation” or international Psy Op. The worldwide fascination with these aerial objects and displays is being fanned by TV dramas such as The Event [NBC] and AMC’s RUBICON, which is scripted to tell the viewer, “yes there is a fourth branch of government and yes, it is hidden, and yes it controls world events from behind the scenes.” That’s the gist of the basic plot line of RUBICON.

I want to get to the bottom of all this, as do millions of others. Last year I was stopped dead in my tracks by the raw video footage of John Lenard Walson.

Richard Hoagland, in an email exchange last year, swore to me that Walson’s deep space super enormous mother ships are not real. But every time I look at his videos, my soul just fairly screams at me that they ARE real, and that Richard Hoagland is a actually a highly trained well paid and well protected dis-information man, groomed for years by NASA insiders to go on live radio and TV and “confuse the hell out of America“. If you listen to him sometime, see if you don’t feel pretty confused when he’s finished speaking.

Tonight I am going with my deep spiritual gut and I am re-posting some of John’s Lenard Walson’s spectacular footage shot with an amateur telescope and a video recorder.

Here are videos I compiled this evening:

NBC Introduces the President of the CFR to America in Response to North Korea’s Attack on South

Copyright 2010-3010 Chase Kyla Hunter, Re-posts permitted leaving content and links intact.

Have you ever heard of Richard N. Haass? He is the sitting president of the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York based new world order “think tank” which is directly tied to the UN and it’s globalist mandate. The CFR tells all top American politicians “what they should be doing” and how to proceed on any number of issues both foreign and domestic, from behind the scenes and has done so for at least 20 years or more. I’ve been monitoring this entity since 1990, so I am not in the mood for anyone who hasn’t studied the CFR for 20 years to try to argue with me.

What had my jaw on the floor this evening while watching the NBC Evening News with Brian Williams was the fact that comments from [so called] President Barack Obama were not necessarily referenced first on NBC in response to yesterday’s blatant provocations by North Korea. No, the man they trotted out to be interviewed on live TV for Americans to see and hear, was none other than the current sitting President of the Council on Foreign Relations. I see this as a strong signal that the CFR will be taking a much more public role in foreign policy crisis management.

So I’d like to ask American readers the 64,000 question once again: Who do you thinks REALLY operates and governs the United States of America, including operating and managing the White House? It’s not the sitting US President, it’s not congress, the Senate or the Judiciary. It’s the NYC based Council on Foreign Relations. Tonite’s media appearance by Richard N. Haass to soothe frayed nerves over North Korea could not be a more clear signal. There is a higher political and advisory power behind the White House, and tonite Americans watching NBC Nightly News met the president of that power.

For other astute “evening news decoders” like me who were watching the opening 5 minutes of this evenings NBC Evening News, we get the signal loud and clear. Barack Obama is a lame duck president, not relegated with enough relevancy to even be referred to first in a moment of possible imminent national crisis. Who did Big Media turn to for a comforting word?

They turned to a live TV interview with the President of the American arm of the new world order: Richard N. Haass. Whether or not anyone else noticed, for me, this was a significant turning point in American big media, possibly the beginning of tacitly introducing more and more of the “hidden powers that be” into the open bright lights of tv news rooms, magazine covers, and related news networks affiliated with nwo big media.

If you are as unhappy as I am, along with other American patriots, then continue to confront these ruling elites just as you have seen done in several of the videos below. The American people are NOT HAPPY to learn that a secret think tank in NYC has been puppeteering the White House and the US Presidency for nearly 40 years, and there has to be a way to put a stop to it, before it is too late.

Who Owns the Media? Less Than A Dozen Corporations

1231634646446
Image by phyxiusone via Flickr

When a half dozen corporations own every major media outlet in America, the stage is set for a state controlled and censored media that rivals that of any communist nation. The media ownership hegemony in the USA must end, in just the same way that telephone company monopolies were ended during the old days of “Ma Bell”. – CK Hunter

Ownership Chart: The Big Six

The U.S. media landscape is dominated by massive corporations that, through a history of mergers and acquisitions, have concentrated their control over what we see, hear and read. In many cases, these giant companies are vertically integrated, controlling everything from initial production to final distribution. Here is information about the largest U.S. media firms.

Media Coverage of the 9/12 Protests: A Report Card
Liberal Nets Acknowledge News Value of Anti-Obama Rally, but Much of
the Coverage Is Antagonistic

Big liberal protests, such as the Million Mom March (for gun
control), the 2006 demonstrations in favor of illegal immigrants’
“rights,” and numerous anti-war marches all garnered heavy play and
adoring coverage from the broadcast networks, cable news outlets, and
big papers like the New York Times. So how did those news outlets
react to Saturday’s huge protest with conservative themes? MRC’s
analysts scrutinized the coverage; here’s their report card:

# ABC, CBS and NBC: The broadcast networks did not offer any pre-
rally coverage before Saturday’s protests, but offered decent
coverage of the event itself. ABC’s World News on Saturday was pre-
empted by college football, but Good Morning America offered full
reports on both Saturday and Sunday, as did NBC’s Today. Both the NBC
Nightly News and CBS Evening News led with the rally on Saturday
night, although CBS’s morning news shows gave the protest almost no attention.

The tone of coverage, however, was largely antagonistic. Opening
Saturday’s Good Morning America, co-host Bill Weir painted the
protesters as driven by rage: “This morning, outrage. Protesters
descend on Washington to rally against the President’s health care
plan. As civility gives way to shouting, what’s fueling all this
anger?” On the CBS Evening News, reporter Nancy Cordes also
highlighted the supposed radicalism of the crowd: “Homemade signs
accused Mr. Obama of socialism, communism and worse.”

But on Saturday’s Nightly News, anchor Amy Robach was more effusive,
touting “a sea of people as far as the eye could see.” Reporter Tom
Costello suggested official estimates undercounted the crowd (“Our
own people think hundreds of thousands were here”), and he showcased
soundbites from official speakers, including a Chrysler auto dealer
who lost his business to Obama’s intervention in the private sector.

# CNN, MSNBC, and the Fox News Channel: By far, Fox News offered the
most detailed coverage, with a two-hour midday program on Saturday
plus regular updates throughout the day, and FNC stuck to presenting
the protesters’ point of view, not denigrating them. One sour note
came from host Geraldo Rivera Saturday night, as he slammed the
protests: “Whether race is the subtext of the current event, there is
no doubt that the rhetoric could not be more overwrought.”

On CNN, most of the daytime coverage was respectful, if not as
intensive as on FNC. During the 5pm ET hour, the tone began to sour,
as correspondent Jim Spellman argued that participants with
“outlandish conspiracy theories” and who were “comparing President
Obama to Hitler” were “a sizable thread. It’s not just a couple of
people on the edges.”

MSNBC offered light coverage Saturday morning, switching to taped
programming at noon ET. When President Obama spoke in Minnesota, the
network returned to live coverage for an hour, but utterly ignored
the news from Washington. On Sunday, the network mentioned the rally
in the midst of other political news; regular pundit Eleanor Clift
dismissed the protesters as “the fringe of the fringe.”

# New York Times: Our TimesWatch editor Clay Waters reports that the
Times buried the protests on page A37 of Sunday’s paper. Although
tens of thousands marched on Capitol Hill, the 932-word story was
only slightly longer than the 724-word story the paper granted back
in March to an ACORN protest with only 40 participants.

Reporter Jeff Zeleny painted the protesters as “angry” and “profane,”
and asserted that the rally contained “no shortage of vitriol” — as
if there were never raised voices or obscene signs at left-wing rallies.

When liberals were the ones behind the megaphones, the media embraced
big protests as an important gauge of the public mood. Now that the
roles are reversed, the double-standard is glaring.
