Operation Apocalypse: "888" Results

Eastern Water warned of HAARP-induced hurricanes, like Katrina, Rita and Wilma.

On Monday, July31 , the day before the publication of Operation Apocalypse, Bush visited the National Hurricane Center in Florida, and those of us who work with HAARPicane analysis immediately thought that he had given orders to initiate another killer storm cycle like last year's. Sure enough, the next day a tropical storm popped up.

"Chris" was soon being shown every hour by the media collaborators, who help set up and cover up the "natural disasters" just as certainly as they helped set up and cover up9 /11. By Wednesday evening we were being assured that Chris was going to enter into the Gulf of Mexico after passing between Florida and the Greater Antilles, and become a major storm. Weather forecasters referred to the all-knowing "model" from the same national authorities with whom Bush had been visiting in the first place, and the whole thing smacked of another HAARPicane.

It was too conspicuous to happen, though. By Thursday morning, Chris had suddenly died in the night. All bets were off, all models were invalidated -- and no explanations were offered. Had Chris remained on the course set up for it, landfall would likely have been in Southeast Texas on8 /8. In this case, the time and method of attack were consistent with the Operation Apocalypse model, although the HAARPicane went toward the Gulf Coast instead of the predicted East Coast.

Even more damning, on8 /8, NOAA changed its entire summer hurricane forecast, downgrading the violence of the season and making general claims that "nothing like Katrina" is anticipated. Apparently, they have decided that the whole weather war attack plan is compromised.

Western Earth warned of HAARP-induced tectonic destruction to the West Coast.

Meteorological data first led me to think that HAARP could affect seismology. In January,2006 , the winter temperatures in the USA's heartland were hardly wintry, with people in the Midwest wearing shorts. The same kind of freak heating had been connected with the Jakarta quake and tsunami, and in fact, the heat wave of last winter was contemporaneous with a high incidence of earthquakes on the Pacific Plate. It was for this reason that I issued an earthquake tsunami alert to the West Coast last winter: http://www.apfn.net/messageboard/01-10-06/discussion.cgi.64.html

The most current parallel with the winter freak heat wave is the just-finished summer freak heat wave of late July and early August, which led me to include a possible heatwave/earthquake connection as an Operation Apocalypse scenario. It remains for an objective research community to check my hunch, but the summer heat wave did seem very much like a slow, methodical application of heat to the USA heartland, beginning in the west in late July, then progressing eastward for two weeks, and culminating on the east coast.

On the danger date,8 /8, US government weather services released their data, which I gleaned via CNN: during that rolling heat wave there had been 2300 daytime temperature records, and 3200 nighttime temperature records. The amount of energy poured into the USA was off the charts, plain and simple. We must wait and see if that energy was enough to destabilize on of the West Coasts many faults.
