Three Wise Men Following A New Star...Off the Coast of Los Angeles

***Cross posted at News Real Blog***

It’s that time of year again:  Three Wise Men following a new star.

A shooting star, that is.

And like those ancient oracles, these men of honor know better than others what that star means.  That’s why we should once again listen to The Wise Men, for what they have to say is unprecedented.

On November 8, a mystery missile lit the dusk skies off the coast of Los Angeles.  After about 3 days of swearing that no one knew what it was, suddenly the Pentagon swore first that it wasn’t a threat, then that it was “just an airplane contrail,” and that anyone who said different had fallen for an “optical illusion.”

In other words, “you people” were all suddenly struck with aeronautic amnesia, and in spite of everyone having seen harmless plane contrails for decades, a mass delusion struck millions not only in LA, but all across the world as the video went viral.

You buying that?  If not, you’re in very good company.  Within days three well known USAF Generals came out vociferously against those claiming it was anything except what it was.

All three not only called this shooting light in the sky a missile, but they continue to stick by it, and are increasingly stunned by the behavior of the Pentagon they know so well.  And the Hippy Press?  Well, there was Miley Cyrus news to cover and Sarah Palin’s show to diss…they couldn’t waste their time on missiles off our coast line!  Besides, the Pentagon and Government both said we saw it wrong…that lame explanation is better than the truth if the truth is a missile, right?

These Three Wise Men have boldly, with great courage but no doubt broken hearts, called this what it was:  a missile.  And that means we are now in the depths of a cover-up.

But don’t take my word for it; let’s listen to the experts, our own Wise Men following a New Light in the Sky.

The first wise man is a FOX News military analyst and appeared on the Sean Hannity show right after the LA Missile, making it clear where he stood:

Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney:


Gen. McInerney’s determination and passion are clear, and the man knows whereof he speaks.  Watch his expression, the tenor of his speech:  this is not a man unsure of what he saw, or fearful to speak it out loud.  This is confidence, knowledge, and a warning we should heed.

Strike one against the “contrail lie.”

Our next wise man has been in my writings before:

Major General Paul Vallely, USArmy ret: General Vallely has been a military analyst on television and radio for over nine years. He is the founder of Stand Up America, a guest lecturer on National Security matters and the War against Global Jihad.

In an exclusive WARCHICK interview, Gen. Vallely laid out his belief of the light in the sky:

“The reason we don’t think it’s an airplane is because most airplane contrails are pure white.  Mixed yellow and orange, indicating fuel exhaust, not just jet condensation trails…the trajectory is too vertical, while planes are usually far more horizontal; they don’t go straight up.  Theirs is a gentler, steady slope.  Trajectory and color of contrail indicates it’s not an airplane…if it was a classified launch, the government wouldn’t say anything anyhow.  They do test scuds, other enemy missiles.  And an actual enemy launch would have been picked up by the fleet and our facilities in San Diego… Vandenberg has terrific missile tracking capability.  These all run 24 hours a day.  But still, everyone in the government is very close hold about it, that’s for sure.”

Gen. Vallely makes some valid points.  This may very well have been an American missile prototype or a test-fire of an enemy missile.  But some serious flaws in that argument are the fact that, if secret, it would not have been tested during rush hour off the coast of the 2nd largest city in America, where traffic choppers are buzzing and millions of cell phone cameras are at the ready.  An enemy sending a message, however, would do exactly that, at that time of day, and in that very place.  Another flaw in the secret or test fire theory is the utter absence of a cover story; the fumbling explanations in the weeks since and the insane insistence that it was an airplane contrail that we “mis-saw” makes it even less likely that it was one of ours.

Strike two.

Our third wise man has been the most outspoken on the LA Mystery Missile, and I was fortunate enough to wrangle an interview with him this past week.

Brigadier General Jim Cash, USAF ret: A former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot and commander of an F-15 squadron and an F-16 wing, Cash was assigned to NORAD was an Assistant Director of Operations at the Cheyenne Mountain Complex near Colorado Springs, Colo., and is fully knowledgeable of NORAD procedures.

Gen. Cash was kind enough to speak with me in-depth about the LA missile and this administration’s lack of action afterward.  I’ve transcribed our conversation from my notes here:

When I first looked at the video I wasn’t terribly concerned, although it did look like a missile launch and I’ve seen lots of those.  The exhaust plume appeared too large compared to the plume producer to be created by a jet engine.  The brownish tint made it appear more closely to missile exhaust, as opposed to the white water vapor contrail of a jet engine.  However, what really caught my eye were the abrupt guidance changes you could see on the system during the video.  As jets climb higher the atmosphere thins and it becomes difficult to turn.  As a result, passenger jets make large, smooth, arching turns.  Missiles, on the other hand, make abrupt, quick turns, and in the video the guidance was very sharp and abrupt.  Jumbo jets just don’t maneuver like that.

But, that wasn’t enough to convince me to write the article about this event.  The convincer was my knowledge and experience of the NORAD system after being assigned there, and the odd response from those to who are responsible for monitoring a situation such as this.

NORAD’s first shot out of the barrel was “it" was not a threat to North America. That suggests to me that NORAD did in fact observe a missile launch and assessed that it was not a threat to the nation, as the trajectory was away from the mainland.

There is an assessment process that occurs anytime NORAD observes a missile launch.  Utilizing a set protocol, the team leader, who in the past was a Brig. General, assesses whether the launch is a threat to the North America.  If assessed as a threat the commanding four- star General is called, who then contacts the President. This entire process must be completed in minimum time, as the President has only a short time himself to make a decision and implement his plan.

This process is non-negotiable, and practiced so often it is a reflex.

Now for the language they used, and why it’s significant.  When they said “it was not a threat,” “it” means they meant a missile.  Had it been a plane, meteor, or something else, they would have identified it as such; they wouldn’t have said “it.”

The next statement made by the Pentagon was even more telling.  As reported by the media, the Pentagon announced they were going to do a missile count to make sure “it” was not one of ours.  They didn’t say they were going to count planes, they said a “missile count.”  In my opinion that statement clearly acknowledged that “it” was indeed a missile, and they were trying to figure out whose it was.

The “its” terminology as well as the clear physical indicators in the video tell me that what happened off the coast of CA was no aircraft contrail.

Immediately after the event, we saw a hyper-focus on another emotion-charged subject, but not a new one:  the TSA debacle.  That smacks of a classic diversion away from uncomfortable questions.

I was recently asked on a radio show what nation has the capability to conduct such an event.  I told them that was the wrong question; what they should be asking is what nation has the capability and motive to conduct such an event, and in my opinion that is China.  China has been expanding its military at a fantastic rate in the past few years, and some reports suggest they are spending up to 16% of their GDP on their military. One must ask the question---Why?

We have seen a massive exchange of technology between China and Russia, and during the Clinton era the US was responsible for transferring technology to them, especially missile guidance technology.  China has taken that technology, enhanced it and added it to their military arsenal.

If proven true that China is behind this event, we must face the reality that they constitute a true long term economic and military threat to our nation.  An indicator of things to come may well be a problem that the President rarely addresses:  Taiwan.  China views Taiwan to be a runaway Province, and have vowed to restore control of it to the mainland.  Many may disagree and point to our hardcore agreements with Taiwan promising to protect them.  But, if we are at war in Afghanistan, still in Iraq, having to deal with an out of control nuclear equipped North Korea and Iran, we may very well be forced to back away and let Taiwan fend for themselves. Soon this country may have no allies if this trend continues.

This is why deterrence is so important.  Pres. Reagan understood that what prevents war is strength, and what promotes war is weakness.  The leadership of this administration and an over-stretched, under-supported military are both viewed as terribly weak right now.

This west coast event was not a direct threat to the US mainland.  I think it was a warning, "There is a new kid on the block with the capability to reach out and touch you.  We are racing toward becoming the world’s second Superpower.  America, pay attention when we speak.  Oh, by the way honor your debt."

So far we have several points to consider from our 3rd Wise Man:  1.  NORAD’s muted response, use of “it,” and insistence in what it WASN’T; 2.  That not only was it absolutely a missile, but that the information went straight to the President.  Surely logical sequencing can take you to the next step; that is, the cover up, clearly, had to have come from the top; and 3.  The timing was deliberate and meant to threaten the general population, to strike fear in the hearts of the citizenry.

That’s strike 3, CONTRAIL; you’re outta there.

Many who have read my writings these past 8 years, especially in regard to the LA Mystery Missile, know that I firmly believe that North Korea was behind the missile.  I believe that they absolutely had Chinese, perhaps even Russian, help, but that they had the missile to do this, a missile they unveiled only one month before that new light in our western sky.  The launch happened when Pres. Obama was in South Korea for the G20, where he received an equally chilly reception, still smarting from the snubbing he’d received in China.  If you know anything about the Asian mindset, saving face is very important, and the snubbing by the two Asian nations sent a clear message:  we view you as weak, with no honor, and we don’t respect you.

North Korea was watching this with rapt attention. What did the Chinese snub and the chilly South Korean reception say to them?

Even if the missile was Chinese, it still affected their little buddy, for several reasons.  First, China is North Korea’s only real ally (well, along with Russia, who is fully Communist since Putin, who’s still in charge.)  And I’ll say it again:  China backs North Korea.  Anything they’ve said to us that claims otherwise has been a lie, a temporary stall and distraction until both Communist countries are ready.  North Korea would be frothing at the mouth to follow its big brother into the missile scene once it saw him get away with such a blatant act of aggression.

Second, what do you think it said to North Korea when America not only did nothing at the provocative “Screw you!” off LA, but lied to its own people and covered it up?  If you were North Korea, wouldn’t you feel confident that a nation that wouldn’t do anything to defend its own land might do even less for an ally, say, South Korea?  It was barely two weeks later that Yeonpyeong was shelled.  People, that was NOT a coincidence, for there is no such thing, especially when it comes to evil intent.

And I haven’t even touched on their close alliance with Iran and their nuclear ambitions.  Islammunism is an ugly thing, made of ugly leaders seeking ugly ends.

Things are lining up, and I believe we will see North Korea do something even bigger before the end of the year.  If not, then the first six months of 2011 are a mathematical certainty…patterns are, after all, mathematical, math is the language of the universe, and history clearly notes that we’ve seen this pattern before.

Like the people of ancient Israel, we have a choice.  Do we take notice of the new light in the sky, call it what it is, and accept this precious gift from the Three Wise Men:  forewarned and thus forearmed?  Or do we sell the truth cheaply, preferring to believe that the brightness in the sky is meaningless, and none of our concern, throwing open the “Welcome” for destruction, convinced we have peace in our time?

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. -- Daniel Webster

This time tested quote makes the following an inevitability:  What you don’t know can hurt you, and what you don’t do will absolutely destroy you.

I know it’s no fun reading such things at Christmas; or any time of year for that matter.  It is even more of a downer getting attacked any time of year.  Evil respects nothing, and knowledge of what it is planning is a gift, believe it or not.  Let’s follow these Wise Men and heed their words, their gift to us.  It is, after all, the time of year for Kings, for miracles, for peace, and for defeating evil again, if we choose it.

You can prevent your opponent from defeating you through defense, but you cannot defeat him without taking the offensive. -- Sun Tzu

Keep the faith, bros, in all things courage, and no substitute for VICTORY.
