Does the US Military “Own the Weather”? “Weaponizing the Weather” As An Instrument of Modern Warfare?
September 15, 2018

First published in September 2017.

Environmental modification techniques have been available to the US military for more than half a century.

The issue has been amply documented and should be part of the climate change debate.

Note: There is no evidence of “weather modification” in relation to recent climatic disturbances (hurricanes), but at the same time there is no firm evidence that this climate instability is solely attributable to greenhouse gas emissions.

The broader issue of environmental modification techniques must be addressed and carefully analyzed. It should also be understood that the instruments of weather warfare are part of the US arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their proposed use by the US military against “enemies” constitutes not only a crime against humanity but to put it mildly a threat to planet earth.

In this essay I am providing the reader with direct quotes from a US Air Force document on the use of environmental modification techniques which indelibly provide irrefutable evidence that the threats are real and must be addressed.

It should be noted that the US is blatantly in violation of  a historic 1977 international Convention ratified by the UN General Assembly which banned “military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects.” (AP, 18 May 1977). Both the US and the Soviet Union were signatories to the Convention.

Lisa Page Bombshell Testimony: Collusion Between Trump And Russia Unproven By Time Of Mueller’s Special Counsel Appointment
September 16, 2018

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page, in a bombshell revelation, says the agency could not prove collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign before Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed.

Page told a closed-door joint session of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July that investigators could not make the charge, according to a transcript of her deposition reviewed by Fox News.

‘I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,’ Page said.

Apparently only the (few) Trump haters gather at the “hole in the news” service.

As silly as this may seem I have seen this work out correctly a few times in my career. It should be given respect.

Something is up. Something big is coming. We cannot be sure precisely when or what, but there are warnings from the technical indicators and patterns from the market this weekend that tell us the stock market is in an extremely dangerous place. Caution is warranted. We look for the Plunge Protection Team to be active at this time. Whether they succeed or not is to be determined.

Stocks were flat Friday, September 14th. The stock market generated its 11th Hindenburg Omen observation Friday for the official H.O. from August, and has now triggered 9 H.O. observations in nine consecutive days! This has not happened in the past 40 years we have tracked Hindenburg Omens. This tells us the market is in an extreme unhealthy condition, is fragile, and could plunge given a trigger event.

This does not mean a plunge is coming for certain, however every stock market crash (declines greater than 15 percent) over the past 40 years have been preceded by a Hindenburg Omen. There are large and growing Bearish divergences evident this weekend between the major U.S. stock averages and their 10 day average Advance/Decline Line Indicators, their Demand Power measures, and there is a Bearish divergence between the S&P 500 and our intermediate term Secondary Trend Indicator. Rising Bearish Wedge patterns are completing in the major averages. Downside price targets suggest a plunge will follow. We show charts for all of these patterns in this weekend’s market forecast report to subscribers at Dr. McHugh’s  www.technicalindicatorindex.com.
