When Seeing and Hearing Isn’t Believing

"Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government." So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command.

At least the voice sounds amazingly like him. But it is not Steiner.

It is the result of voice "morphing" technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner's voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile. Steiner was so impressed, he asked for a copy of the tape.

Steiner was hardly the first or last victim to be spoofed by Papcun's team members. To refine their method, they took various high quality recordings of generals and experimented with creating fake statements. One of the most memorable is Colin Powell stating "I am being treated well by my captors."

"They chose to have him say something he would never otherwise have said," chuckled one of Papcun's colleagues.

A Box Of Chocolates Is Like War


Most Americans were introduced to the tricks of the digital age in the movie Forrest Gump, when the character played by Tom Hanks appeared to shake hands with President Kennedy.

For Hollywood, it is special effects. For covert operators in the U.S. military and intelligence agencies, it is a weapon of the future.

"Once you can take any kind of information and reduce it into ones and zeros, you can do some pretty interesting things," says Daniel T. Kuehl, chairman of the Information Operations department of the National Defense University in Washington, the military's school for information warfare.

PSYOPS seeks to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations.

Digital morphing — voice, video, and photo — has come of age, available for use in psychological operations. PSYOPS, as the military calls it, seek to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to pursue national and battlefield objectives.

To some, PSYOPS is a backwater military discipline of leaflet dropping and radio propaganda. To a growing group of information war technologists, it is the nexus of fantasy and reality. Being able to manufacture convincing audio or video, they say, might be the difference in a successful military operation or coup.

 

Allah On The Holodeck


Pentagon planners started to discuss digital morphing after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Covert operators kicked around the idea of creating a computer-faked videotape of Saddam Hussein crying or showing other such manly weaknesses, or in some sexually compromising situation. The nascent plan was for the tapes to be flooded into Iraq and the Arab world.

The tape war never proceeded, killed, participants say, by bureaucratic fights over jurisdiction, skepticism over the technology, and concerns raised by Arab coalition partners.

What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad?
 

But the "strategic" PSYOPS scheming didn't die. What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad urging the Iraqi people and Army to rise up against Saddam, a senior Air Force officer asked in 1990?

According to a military physicist given the task of looking into the hologram idea, the feasibility had been established of projecting large, three-dimensional objects that appeared to float in the air.

But doing so over the skies of Iraq? To project such a hologram over Baghdad on the order of several hundred feet, they calculated, would take a mirror more than a mile square in space, as well as huge projectors and power sources.

And besides, investigators came back, what does Allah look like?

The Gulf War hologram story might be dismissed were it not the case that washingtonpost.com has learned that a super secret program was established in 1994 to pursue the very technology for PSYOPS application. The "Holographic Projector" is described in a classified Air Force document as a system to "project information power from space … for special operations deception missions."

War Is Like A Box Of Chocolates


Voice-morphing? Fake video? Holographic projection? They sound more like Mission Impossible and Star Trek gimmicks than weapons. Yet for each, there are corresponding and growing research efforts as the technologies improve and offensive information warfare expands.

Whereas early voice morphing required cutting and pasting speech to put letters or words together to make a composite, Papcun's software developed at Los Alamos can far more accurately replicate the way one actually speaks. Eliminated are the robotic intonations.

The irony is that after Papcun finished his speech cloning research, there were no takers in the military. Luckily for him, Hollywood is interested: The promise of creating a virtual Clark Gable is mightier than the sword.

Video and photo manipulation has already raised profound questions of authenticity for the journalistic world. With audio joining the mix, it is not only journalists but also privacy advocates and the conspiracy-minded who will no doubt ponder the worrisome mischief that lurks in the not too distant future.

"We already know that seeing isn't necessarily believing," says Dan Kuehl, "now I guess hearing isn't either."

The Bizarre Denver International Airport

Denver Airport in Colorado has been the topic of debate among Truth Seekers and Conspiracy Theorists alike since it was built. Although Truth Seekers and Conspiracy Theorist’s don’t normally like to be referred to in the same sentence they are fairly united in opinions on this particular matter.

The airport I am referring to in this article is Denver Airport, which was built in 1995despite the fact that Denver already had a fully functioning airport called Stapleton International Airport.

This is one of many interesting facts which has initially attracted groups such as the aforementioned. Ordinarily when a new construction is built to replace another, it is either due to the fact the previous structure is faulty, or that the new proposed structure needs better technology, or in the case of an airport, more runway space. None of this was in fact the case with Denver Airport. Stapleton was fully operational with no underlying issues, the replacement airport had less runway space, and it also didn’t sport any fantastic new technological advancements over the previous. However, having said all that, the new Denver Airport did have an enormous amount of dead space surrounding the airport, owned by the airport, and there are no plans in place for extra runways or parking etc.

From an aerial perspective or satellite image, the entire complex forms the shape of a giant Nazi Swastika, which understandably does not sit too comfortable with some people.

Perhaps the single most talked about feature of the new Denver Airport, and this is only due to the blatant visibility as there are many other disturbing features, is the collection of protected murals.

In plain sight of passengers departing and entering the airport there are giant sized murals depicting horrifying images. Many people have expressed the fact that airports, for the vast majority of people, are intimidating places at the best of times. To be bombarded with such explicit images of death before boarding an airplane is borderline sadistic.

Are these murals one man’s warped artistic mind running wild, or are they a visual representation of plans laid out by the NWO (New World Order), who many people feel are the real architects of Denver Airport. There are many disturbing details that one can see within the murals. The image of (what looks like) a Nazi stormtrooper wielding an Arabian Sword in one hand, as it slices through the Earth leaving devastation and destruction in it’s path, and an AK-47 assault rifle in the other hand. It is worth noting that the sword appears to be slicing through two tower blocks, pretty reminiscent of the Twin Towers disaster on 9/11. What’s more frightening about this image is that it was painted well before the 9/11 tragedy. The artist responsible for the murals is Leo Tanguma who, to the best of my knowledge, has never actually held an interview explaining the meaning of the murals, if in fact there are meanings.

Another intriguing artistic touch: gargoyles out of suitcases

As I have already briefly mentioned the New World Order and their involvement in the building of the airport, let me just explain a little bit about this group. Many people believe, and with good reason, that an “elite” group of individuals run the world. We are not alluding to simple straight forward individuals such as Presidents, Prime Ministers and Monarchs, but much more influential and even more destructive people than theseThe individuals who really pick and chose governments throughout the world, people who hold much more power and far greater evil minds than the lunatics we openly call our leaders. It is believed that the New World Order group wants to reduce the population on this planet by quite a bit, and by that I mean a reduction of billions of lives, that are only seen as parasitic to the globalist mentality and therefore totally expendable.

On entering Denver Airport you are welcomed by a large cornerstone, which has engraved on it “New World Airport Commission Contributors”. There is other information on the stone but this particular phrase is of special interest, as there is no such organization as “New World Airport Commission Contributors”. Could this be a metaphor for the New World Order, or perhaps a secret building block in their plan for global domination?

 

On further investigation of the airport the periodic table symbol for gold and silver (Au Ag) appears throughout different areas of the airport, however certain individuals think it represents something far more sinister. One of the main sponsors of Denver Airport is also supposed to have discovered a new deadly strain of the Hepatitis B Virus also known as Australia Antigen, which also has the (Au Ag) symbol. Obviously due to this people assume the symbol with the (Au Ag) represents the method on which the New World Order are to reduce the population to the “preferred size”.

The final piece of the puzzle as far as Denver Airport is concerned is the massive underground network that many local people have watched materialize over the last few years. Vast underground buildings and a network of tunnels connecting have been witnessed and when the airport officials are questioned, or even people working on the construction are asked about it, they simply reply that they are not permitted to talk about it, or ignore the question altogether. Within this vast network of underground tunnels and buildings made of concrete, sprinkler type systems have been installed. Again, when people inquire about a sprinkler system installed in a non-flammable environment, blank expressions are returned. All of this adds fuel to the theory that when the New World Order kick start their mission to overthrow the globe, the Denver Airport’s underground networks and others like it around the world, will be used to contain citizens under Martial Law. Once they have been rounded up and herded into these complexes, the use for the so called sprinkler systems will become apparent. Much like the terrible concentration camps of Nazi Germany, these sprinkler systems will pump through the deadly Hepatitis B virus (Au Ag Australia Antigen).

As with all Truth Seeking Theories or Conspiracy Theories of this nature, there is always another group who are more than willing to explain away all the demonic imagery and actions that are laid out in this article. For example, while Au Ag is partially correct in representing Australia Antigen, after I conducted my own research on this matter, I discovered that it is only partially right and that the correct abbreviation for the strain is (Au Ag-Ab), so one must ask, has this been left off to fit someone else’s theory. Also as far as the sprinkler system goes, regardless of the environment being concrete and pretty much non-flammable, in all underground establishments oxygen is constantly pumped in and pure oxygen is a massive potential fire hazard. This could be what the sprinkler system is in place for.

As for the other things such as the shape of the complex and the terrifying murals, I don’t have an answer as to why they have been situated at an airport in the intimidating fashion they have been set. It has also been reported on various occasions that high profile individuals such as the British Royal Family and many others in this realm of status, have purchased property close to the facility. It is of course no secret that not far from Denver Airport, in the Cheyenne Mountains of Colorado Springs, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defence Command) are stationed deep within and under the mountains. 

For me personally, I am always open minded about pretty much everything, I think that to shut out and ignore what is going on around us, is to be ignorant and that is neither helpful to me as an individual, nor to other people around me. However, I do try to take a logical approach on matters, I don’t always get things right, but so long as I have researched the matter for myself, I know I am not simply being lead by the few who want it to be like that.

Jon Rappoport – Making Your Work Known In The World

by Jon Rappoport

October 27, 2015

What I’m talking about here are your most profound desires and goals. And often you have to search for what those are, because they don’t just pop up.

That’s the kind of work I’m referring to—the work that comes when you launch projects and enterprises that directly reflect those desires.

Why expend enormous amounts of energy if the work is superficial? Why spend years if the work is automatic and dead?

Making your work known in the world begins with knowing something about the work. It begins with knowing you have unlimited energy to give to it. That energy comes from discovering/inventing your deepest possible goals, and their many dimensions and implications.

Then, the energy shows up in abundance.

But it can all go to waste without commitment. Commitment is not something that happens naturally. It doesn’t float in on a breeze. It doesn’t show up as a gift under the Xmas tree. It’s a choice. Yes or no. Every day.

Some people have doubts about whether their work is worth being known and visible in the world. Those doubts are spurious. They’re based on not having found a profound objective and purpose.

Skills and strategies can be learned. But their basis and root are in you.

Excuses for not doing what I’m alluding to here are endless. People make them up by the ton. Postponement Inc. and Distraction Inc. are flourishing as never before.

It’s even fashionable to be confused, and then parlay that into a solid story of irreversible victimhood. But,…

“Inspiration is outside state control.” —Kenneth Clark

“The practice of a profession entails discipline, which for me meant the production of two thousand words of fair copy every day, weekends included. I discovered that, if I started early enough, I could complete the day’s stint before the pubs opened.” —Anthony Burgess

“They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.” —Eric Hoffer

“Don’t loaf and invite inspiration; light out after it with a club, and if you don’t get it you will nonetheless get something that looks remarkably like it.” —Jack London

As you can see, what I’m discussing in this piece moves light years past the notion that, by simply thinking “positive thoughts,” the universe will magnetically deliver success.

“There are some people who hear the word CREATE and wake up, as if a new flashing music has begun. This lone word makes them see something majestic and untamed and astonishing. They feel the sound of a Niagara approaching.

CREATE is a word that should be oceanic. It should shake and blow apart the pillars of the smug boredom of the soul.

CREATE is about what the individual does when he is on fire and doesn’t care about concealing it. It’s about what the individual invents when he has thrown off the false front that is slowly strangling him.

CREATE is about the end of mindless postponement. It’s about what happens when you burn up the pretty and petty little obsessions. It’s about emerging from the empty suit and empty machine of society that goes around and around and sucks away the vital bloodstream.” —The Creative Center, Jon Rappoport
