A few days ago on the morning of November 4, the eyes of the world were on Cape Canaveral, Florida. An American space shuttle sat poised for launch on Pad 39-A, the home of America’s moon flights a decade ago. According to NASA, the shuttle was scheduled for launch at 7:30 that morning. What we were watching, my friends, was another NASA publicity hoax.
NASA had no intention of actually launching the shuttle that day. The shuttle now at Cape Canaveral is not the “Columbia” as claimed—it is the training shuttle “Enterprise”, as I reported last June in AUDIO LETTER® No. 65. It is there for only one reason: to help NASA buy time. It was the Enterprise, not the Columbia, that we saw making that dramatic landing in California last April. Most Americans are unaware that the Columbia was destroyed in space after it took off from Cape Canaveral.
NASA is continuing to buy time while secret modifications of the next space shuttle are underway at White Sands, New Mexico, and so right now we’re seeing hoaxes like the aborted countdown on November 4. As I mentioned a moment ago, NASA had no intention of allowing an actual launch earlier this week. What they did want was an exciting countdown to sustain public interest and explain away the next delay.
The military shuttle planners are still actively considering a deliberately aborted launch soon, and they want to prepare us in case they carry it out. But on November 4 the launch preparations were only make-believe, and so NASA pressed ahead with the countdown with only lip service to the worsening weather. The countdown went without a hitch to the “T minus 9 minutes” mark and then stopped for a final planned “Hold.”
We were told that this was the decision point when Launch Control would either go ahead or “scrub.” Newsmen craned their necks at the worsening clouds and shook their heads. It began to rain on spectators 10 miles from the launch pad; then the rain reached the VIP stand, twice as close to the shuttle; next, rain started pelting TV reporters at their forward outposts, closest of all to the launch pad. Surely, they said, NASA would have to scrub the launch; but to NASA Launch Control, only the countdown itself mattered that day.
They knew there could be no launch because the countdown computer had been programmed to prevent it, and so the announcement from NASA surprised many. The decision was to go ahead for a launch. The final 9 minutes of the countdown were used to help lay the foundation for things to come. First, the countdown computer refused to resume the count at T minus 9 minutes. Shortly NASA announced that it was merely a computer programming problem. Moments later the count began.
They will say afterward that it was all caused by a computer programming problem. They will emphasize that the shuttle itself performed perfectly, and so the shuttle project should not be interfered with. Finally when they are ready for the third shuttle launch, they will assure us that the computer problems have all been solved. This, my friends, was the true purpose of the November 4 shuttle countdown hoax. They have now paved the way for an aborted take-off soon if they choose to carry out the plan I made public in AUDIO LETTER No. 65.
Even so, these delays cannot continue indefinitely. The countdown for the space shuttle program is only part of a far greater countdown—the countdown toward NUCLEAR WAR ONE! Earlier this year of 1981 I revealed that the American Bolsheviks here are trying to follow a definite timetable in their war plans. That timetable calls for the war sequence to begin around mid-1982. A chain of events will begin that is to culminate finally in NUCLEAR WAR ONE. My friends, up to now they are still on that timetable.
Mid-1982 is less than a year away now, and so regardless of the low chances of success, the military space shuttle team will have to try a launch soon. Whatever they try will be a desperate gamble in light of Russia’s overwhelming military power in space. But time is slipping away for the space shuttle. The choice is gradually becoming: either use it or lose it.
The State Socialists here, the American Bolsheviks who now control America’s military policies, are in a frenzy to throw America’s nuclear arsenal at Russia. During recent weeks this military frenzy has been manifesting itself in many ways. These range from the so-called Reagan Administration decision on the MX missile and B-1 Bomber to shocking statements about “limited nuclear war.” At the same time, America’s economy is being dragged down into an inflationary depression to set the stage for DICTATORSHIP! And most ominous of all, my friends, a specific act has taken place since my last AUDIO LETTER report that has lit one of the fuses for war!
My three special topics for this AUDIO LETTER are:
- Assassination politics can be counted on always to strike without warning. One fateful day it struck in a capital city not far from the Mediterranean Sea. The day began without a hint of what was about to happen. The Mediterranean sun was bright and warm, the sort of day that is perfect for picnics and parades. An unusual leader was scheduled to be seen in public appearances on that fateful day.
He was a strong-minded man, not universally admired but certainly an attention-getter. For his public appearances that day he was all decked out with a full complement of medals to enhance his image. He was a controversial man, and his policies were stirring up heated debate. He had staked out a course in foreign policy that set him apart from others in his region. There were many who did not like his ideas. Throughout the region in which this unusual man lived, deep divisions were threatening to explode into violence. The central problem had to do with a disenfranchised minority who were scattered through parts of the several nations. This minority group were the victims of great power maneuvering that had changed the map a generation earlier. They had been left without the national identity they craved, and scattered through parts of several nations.
There was a hail of gunfire; and this man who had staked out such an independent course lay dead. The assassination was followed immediately by questions piled on more questions. “How big was the conspiracy?” The answer at first appeared to be only a handful, perhaps four or five men. Later there were hints that it might have been much bigger than that. “What about the suspicious behavior of the neighboring government toward the assassinated leader?” The evidence was conflicting about that. And, “Why had effective protection been so completely lacking for such an important leader?” To this day, my friends, that question remains a mystery. It is often said that history repeats itself; and so it does, my friends, if only we can learn to see it.
The assassination last month took place in the Egyptian capital city of Cairo, some 100 miles south of the Mediterranean coast. The victim was the entity President Sadat. Over the past half decade Sadat had become highly controversial and isolated in the Arab world. The reason for this was his involvement with Israel by way of the so-called Camp David Accords.
That solution is called “autonomy.”
These days we hear frequently about so-called autonomy talks between Egypt and Israel. To you and me thousands of miles away from the scene, the concept of Regional Autonomy for the Palestinians may sound pretty good, but to the Palestinians themselves it is no solution at all. They see it as nothing more than a way to lock them into their present homeless status for all time; and, my friends, they are exactly right about that. After all, the Palestinians themselves are not even party to the so-called autonomy talks which are to decide their fate.
So this was the situation last month on October 6:
Into this dangerous situation stepped Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria of the Austro-Hungarian empire. He was afraid the Balkan situation could lead to a breakup of his empire, and so he proposed a halfway solution to pacify the Yugoslavs while preserving the status quo. His plan for this disenfranchised minority was called “Regional Autonomy.”
It was virtually a prototype for the so-called autonomy plan we hear about today for the Palestinians. The Yugoslavs were no more pleased with the so-called autonomy idea in 1914 than the Palestinians are today in 1981. It was a situation made to order to set the stage for assassination. That was true in 1914, and it was true again in 1981, barely a month ago. The two assassinations differed in detail, but in overall pattern they were much the same. Archduke Ferdinand appeared in an open car wearing the medals and trappings of royalty.
Sadat appeared at a parade dressed in the medals and trappings of the military. Both were shot to death without the assassins being interfered with by security personnel until too late. Both were killed in capital cities near the Mediterranean—Archduke Ferdinand in the provincial capital of Sarajevo, Bosnia; Sadat, in Cairo, Egypt. Both assassinations were followed immediately by suspicions directed against a neighboring state. In the case of Sadat, the suspicions were aimed at neighboring Libya; in the case of Archduke Ferdinand, it was Serbia that drew accusations; and those accusations, my friends, initiated a process that led directly to World War I.
They were the legacy of balance-of-power politics from the era of Bismarck and Disraeli. The two blocs were so evenly matched that it was thought that they would keep the peace, but they both shared a common weak spot. That weak spot was the Balkan Peninsula. In themselves, the Balkans were minor players on the world stage; but there were treaties between the Balkan mini-states and the great powers. It was through those ties that the great powers were pulled into what became World War I. Today, my friends, we live once again in an era when two great power blocs have been facing each other for decades.
One is centered on Russia, and the other on the United States, together with their allies. For example: in Europe itself, NATO stands eyeball to eyeball with the Warsaw Pact year in, year out. Today it is far worse than in 1914. It is more complicated, and secret alliances are now being forged. And just as 1914 had its weak spot in the Balkans, the 1981 weak spot is the Middle East together with the Persian Gulf.
The State Socialists (or American Bolsheviks) here are trying to set off NUCLEAR WAR ONE by means of techniques similar to those which led to World War I 67 years ago, and the time had come at last to use Sadat to help further the plan for war. Contrary to appearances, the late President Anwar Sadat did not initiate negotiations with Israel four years ago on his own initiative. Instead, he had been turned into an involuntary puppet of the United States and Israel! I first revealed what had been done to Sadat four years ago this month in AUDIO LETTER No. 28.
Sadat had been subjected to the psychological programming techniques which are secretly in use by the United States and other Intelligence agencies. He was programmed with an irresistible compulsion to go against all of his past thinking and deal directly with Israel. The bottom line was what I reported four years ago.
To repeat what I reported then, quote:
Last month the Sadat image was put to its final use by the secret joint military junta of the United States Pentagon and Israel. The assassination in Cairo ended the Sadat era and, at the same time, it started the countdown toward collapse of the Egyptian-Israeli Peace Treaty on the way to war! Within hours of the assassination, Israeli leaders began expressing doubts whether the peace will survive without Sadat; and they said that this could cause a re-appraisal of the plan for Israel to complete its withdrawal from the Sinai on schedule next spring.
When Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in June of 1914, it led very quickly to the outbreak of war. The war was getting underway by early August, a scant six weeks after the assassination. Today the same unseen forces and their principals are at work, but the situation is more complicated. As a result it would be a mistake to expect the same timetables to apply, but the hollow echoes of 1914 are growing louder and louder in the Middle East today.
When the right moment arrives, Khadafy can be programmed to do something seemingly insane to help bring on war.
These, my friends, are the facts behind the shocking recent reports of American involvement in Libya. But more important than Libya is Saudi Arabia. When I recorded AUDIO LETTER No. 68 on September 30, it seemed that the crucial AWACS deal with Saudi Arabia was in trouble; but I reported that Israel secretly wanted the AWACS deal to be approved. This is part of the plan to set up Saudi Arabia to look like a credible threat to Israel. That will give Israel the excuse it needs to carry out a limited nuclear strike on the Saudi oil fields.
These peace overtures have started the world down the road to thermonuclear war!
- Two days ago there was a new flood of bad economic news out of Washington. Official unemployment figures jumped from 7-1/2% to 8% in October, just one month’s time. The deep slumps in housing and autos are getting deeper, and the Reagan promise of a balanced federal budget by 1984 has now been officially abandoned. At the same time, Government figures show that more and more people are going deeper and deeper into debt. Even as the economy slows down, galloping inflation is continuing to make it harder to make ends meet.
The entity President Reagan startled reporters by saying the country is in a mild recession. Then other Government spokesmen softened the blow, calling it a “flat period.” Now these casual-sounding early admissions are being replaced by reports that grow worse by the day. America’s economy is turning sour too fast for reassuring smiles and empty phrases to hide it any longer. If you want to understand what is really happening to the United States economy, you must keep your eyes on the basics. There are two critical sectors of the economy which are the keys to bringing about prosperity or depression.
Those sectors are:
Six years ago in AUDIO LETTER No. 5 I talked briefly about the wise German professor who taught me finance, banking, and economics.
The last time things were this bad we were in the severe recession of 1957 to 1958. But, my friends, you haven’t seen anything yet!
Lost jobs in those two sectors mean other businesses will slow down too. And so general unemployment can do nothing but get worse as things stand right now. Millions of American working people are growing nervous as they see what is happening. Many are especially worried because they sense a fundamental shift taking place in the Government’s attitude toward Labor.
The problem is not so much what is being done as the way it is being done. Instead of phasing out these programs in a way that would give a period of adjustment, they are just being lopped off. Many people are being made to feel that they are being cast onto the trash heap. Resentment and desperation are building. At the same time, shortages are coming in America. These shortages will come to include food, sooner than most of us imagine. One of the favorite political weapons of the Bolsheviks has always been hunger, because it is so powerful. They used it long ago in Russia. They are using it today in Poland, and they will use it tomorrow right here in the United States! Widespread hunger can be brought about in America even if there is no lack of agricultural production.
The following month I reported in AUDIO LETTER No. 54 that the Kremlin was retaliating by means of massive modification of America’s weather. For the next four months I was not able to give monthly updates on the situation because I was recovering from a near-fatal heart attack; but by the time I resumed my AUDIO LETTER series in June 1980, the weather had become big news here in America. Vast growing areas of the United States were in the grip of a scorching drought that was both unexpected and very severe. The Russians made sure that they got their point across to our peanut farmer president then in office. For the first time on record the Deep South peanut crop failed in 1980. It was destroyed by the weather.
And so six months ago the grain embargo against Russia was ended. As a result, America’s weather returned to normal during the summer of 1981 just passed. The drought-stricken areas of a year ago have in many cases received drenching rains to restore their productivity. As I said earlier, the immediate threat of hunger in America is no longer due to crop failure caused by Russian weather modification. Instead, when hunger strikes, it may well be brought about by a sudden disruption of our food distribution system.
In a way, that was an ironic name to choose. It makes one think of the so-called Solidarity Labor Union in Poland. In Poland the Solidarity Union is a tool of the American Bolsheviks who are trying to destroy the economy for purposes of revolution and war. Here in America, the American Bolsheviks are also trying to destroy the economy—and for similar reasons. But here, they are trying to do it through the Government itself. As America’s economy continues to deteriorate, the battle continues in the secret power struggle to control the United States Government.
Our country is being Polandized—that is, America is being weakened economically to set the stage for war, just as is being done to Poland.
The Gold Standard ploy is intended to look good, but it is a sham. How can an alleged Gold Standard mean anything if the alleged gold reserves do not exist? After all, when President Nixon closed the gold window in 1971, it was because America’s gold reserves had been secretly depleted! Nixon’s Treasury Secretary at the time was John Connally, and he has now gone public with strong opposition to the Gold Standard idea—and his reason is simple.
Last month the New York Times for October 19 quoted Connally as saying:
Wherever you look, there are nothing but questions about the true status of America’s gold supplies. For example: three years ago the major media for once created a sensation about the New York Assay Office. They reported, correctly, that some 5,000 ounces of gold were missing—gone without a trace! Well, my friends, the major media ought to go back and check again with their sources.
For the fiscal year ended September 30, 1981, there is still more gold missing at the New York Assay Office! Supposedly there was a tightening of security and procedures there after the scandal three years ago—at least that’s what the Treasury Department told the public. But for this past year alone, another 3,163 ounces of gold have vanished.
Yes, my friends, America is being Polandized. Just as Poland is the victim of deliberate economic turmoil, so are we. The objective in Poland is to bring on social upheaval, bloodshed, and the prelude to war. And that is also the objective right here in the United States. When unemployment and hunger riots materialize, they will trigger the secret military “OPERATION GARDEN PLOT” which I first reported in the summer of 1975.
It is all part of the plan for a National Emergency to come on the way to NUCLEAR WAR ONE.
- Early last month on October 2, the entity President Reagan announced his long-awaited decision on the MX Missile Program. For the past several years we’ve been hearing about the MX and all kinds of possible mobile basing for it. We’ve been told that the MX will have to be mobile in order to survive a Russian nuclear attack.
A number of my listeners have seen and photographed Minuteman TX missile cars since I described them in my June 1980 report. About six months ago I released a special bulletin which presents two of these photographs. In AUDIO LETTER No. 55 I explained that the publicity surrounding the so-called MX program was only a cover for the secret TX mobile missile program.
Recently I reported that the TX missile deployment is scheduled to be completed by next spring, around six months from now. Now that the program is nearing completion, the MX mobile missile cover story has just about run its course. That’s why the Reagan Administration is now dropping its pretenses that the MX will be mobile.
There was only one important difference in what Senator Glenn described. He carefully avoided talking about railroads but instead talked about truck trailers. If he had mentioned railroads, he would have “let the cat out of the bag” because railroads are how the secret TX missiles are actually deployed.
Scoville points out that the MX as advertised makes sense only as a first-strike weapon. For one thing, the MX is alleged to be an anti-ICBM weapon, but the only way the MX could destroy Russian ICBMs sitting on the ground would be if the Russians had not fired them yet.
In other words, we would have to shoot first. Scoville points out that the “shoot first” idea becomes even more necessary in light of the decision to put them in old Titan silos. The Defense Department itself says that Russia’s largest missiles, quote: “are capable of destroying any known fixed target with high probability.” In other words, the Titan silos cannot be hardened enough to protect them from Russian missiles, so the only way the MX could be used would be to shoot first. If all Americans were aware of authoritative statements of alarm like this one, perhaps disaster could be averted; but most people these days never hear such warnings.
If we are lucky and alert, we may see it once in a newspaper; but it is soon washed away by the never ending flood of lies from Washington. Most of us remain oblivious to the danger, and so we raise not a word in protest as our leaders sell us down the river to disaster! Even so, the secret first-strike preparations of the United States are not entirely without opposition.
The plan is known within the walls of the Kremlin, and Russia’s leaders are at work on several fronts. For one thing, they are continuing the campaign of attrition against America’s war-making capacity which they started several years ago. One day a railroad train derails and several chemical tank cars, bound for a defense plant, explode. Another day an unexplained explosion wipes a small weapons laboratory off the face of the earth. Next, a rash of military plane crashes takes place. The pattern keeps changing constantly so that it cannot be identified, but it is there and it has its effect!
The Russian Sub Commander maneuvered his boat so deeply into tricky, heavily defended waters as to make it painfully obvious that it was no accident. Then, in a demonstration of the wry Russian sense of humor, he carefully nudged his boat onto some rocks and just waited to be discovered. After a while, the “sub” was discovered—not by the Swedish Navy but by a fishing boat! At the purely professional military level, it would be hard to imagine anything more embarrassing for the Swedish Navy, or more sobering. Just to make sure though, the other Russian “sub” started through its paces as soon as Sub 137 had been found on the rocks.
The second “sub”, deep within Swedish territorial waters, de-activated its sonar-defeating equipment and then prowled around as noisily as possible until a Swedish Anti-submarine Warfare Task Group arrived. The Swedes were all set to start dropping depth charges on the seemingly trapped “sub.” Then the sonar-defeating equipment was turned on again and the “sub” simply vanished.
The Russians are hoping the Swedes will not involve themselves in America’s suicidal first-strike posture; but, my friends, they will!
The choice, my friends, is up to you and me.
Thank you, and may
God bless each and every one of you.
