chronology: Landed safe and sound.
NASA are celebrating the successful landing of their Mars Lander. President Biden has sent well done messages to the Space Agency.
Today of course NASA will be forever checking their rear view mirror on Mars. Not for Russian landing craft, but for Mr Elon Musk. It really is not impossible that NASA Staff could find themselves looking at Elon smiling at them through his Space Visor saying 'hello fellow's' from the surface of Mars.
Zanjan: The Chinese and Arabs also sent their landers to Mars at the same time. It's getting crowded out there. Might have to put up traffic signs.
chronology: China made quite a splash when they began their Moon missions Zan. I will always remember the international Press Conference organised by concerned Chinese Scientists when they.discovered buildings on the moon during China's early moon flight's.
It was a sensational event among the conspiracy theory folk's because China was the only country to ever officially acknowledge that such structures were on the moon.
But the Press Conference was ignored by most Western Countries, and the photographs displayed at the conference were never shown outside China. 'Somdbody built these structures, they are not natural and people need to know the truth' said a Chinese Lady scientist. But the truth, whatever it is was never heard outside China.
NASA has seen many photographs of the strange buildings on the moon in the past but has always air brushed them out of pictures. So unless you work for NASA you will never see these structures unless you have friends in the Chinese Space Agency.
Personally Zan I keep an open mind about the buildings. It is possible that they are just left over object's from the Cold War. NASA may have known nothing about the odd object's as they would have been USAF Space missions. Or they could have been secret Russian Repeater Stations. There could be a mundane explanation. But Chinese folk's would have understood if the buildings were old Cold War material.
If China leads the way to a Mars Landing, which seems likely, then we can rest assured that they will give full disclosure streight away to anything out of the ordinary.
I don't think NASA are keeping Aliens from public knowledge. Most likely they are probably just being careful not to expose Air Force or Navy Missions in Space.
Blackshoes: ??? l "Press Conference organised by concerned Chinese Scientists when they. discovered buildings on the moon during China's early moon flight's" ???
Do you have any evidence ? Or is this just assumed by UFOlogist?
chronology: It really did happen about 20 year's ago. Before the Chinese Scientists raised their concerns, there were a number of people who claimed NASA was keeping image's of buildings out of the public attention.
Who knows what is up there? They could have been USAF site's from the Cold War.
According to some people who claim to have seen the photos the buildings are as Big as football stadiums. So it would seem unlikely either Russia or America would invest in that kind of construction.
According to some folk's who claim to know more than the rest of us, most of the site's on the moon have either been levelled or have collapsed since being photographed.
Personally I remember the old Echo Space Balloons from the early 60s. They were huge inflatable balloon like structures as big as football stadiums that the U.S. place in orbit like satellites. They used them to bounce signal's off. Both the Soviets and NASA could have landed some on the moon then inflated them. They would have been huge, but you are talking about a massive inflated balloon, not a building.
Fractured fairy tale: Oh yeah Worship the US government Now , The Only government In World history to do What No other Could , Enslave the Whole World with a Worthless Currancy to Enrich the Vain and the Evil Parasites ,That steal every one elses wealth , Keep the Whole thing Going With force death Murder slander and guilt trips
you two are totally evil
chronology: President Biden visit to Ireland possibly in June this year.
It will certainly be an emotional visit for Mr Biden and his family as he sets foot in'dear old Ireland' . Mr Biden all his life has expressed his love for Ireland and the Irish people. But his dream of visiting Ireland will come true, most likely this year.
For the American President it will be a visit which sees no problems at all. The United States was the most energetic promotor of the Irish Peace Agreement which saw the end of decade's of violence in Ireland. And today Ireland is a prosperous and successful country in every way.
Some were hoping Mr Biden could visit Ireland on St Patrick's Day next month. But it seems likely the President will coincide his visit to his beloved Native Heath with the G7 conference in Ireland. This will mean that the visit will actually cost nothing to Taxpayer's in Ireland or America as Mr Biden would have been Ireland anyway.
Mr Biden was asked if he would be visiting Ireland this year ' you try and keep me away' he replied.
Mr Trump would probably have been given a very chilly welcome by folks in Ireland who for the most disliked him strongly. Irish people objected to his scapegoating of the Latino community on America and his treatment of immigrants to the USA.
But Mr Biden can expect lot's of hugs and 'God Bless you' greetings from little old Irish ladies. Mr Trump probably would have found himself looking at empty streets as Irish people avoided any visit he made.
chronology: Texas unlikely to give up Energy Independence.
Texans are a tough folks. They like to do things their own way and often resent Federal Regulations.
But many Texans have shivered through freezing conditions during power cuts these last few weeks.
Part of the the reason Texas power Grids were knocked out by the freezing weather is Texas is the only Power Grid not Federally Regulated in the USA. Ironically winter is not the time when Texans soak up all that blue juice from power lines. Summer is when Texans switch on their huge numbers of air conditioning and relax in cool buildings during hot weather.
Will Texas be reconsidering its tough independent outlook on life after the power cuts? Seems unlikely, its takes a lot more than a black out to faze Texas.
But Texans will be revamping their Power Grid after the recent Black outs, and if hooking up to the rest of the USA is going to save them big bucks instead of keeping an upgraded Texas only Grid, then the Lone Star State may decide to share costs with the rest of the Union.
Hey, even Texans enjoy saving a few billion dollars. Even if it does mean being in line with Federal Regulations.
chronology: Elisa Lam death still debated.
Back in 2013 young Canadian Elisa became quite a subject for web speculation when she was videoed on CCTV goofing around on a hotel Elevator shortly before vanishing.
2 weeks later she was found dead in the hotel water tank. For folks who were staying in the Hotel Cecil at the time in LA it became a unsettling and even hurtful experience to be associated with the global news story Elisa's death became. The Hotel was portrayed as a evil sinister place that was frequented by evil people.
As one person said, the Cecil was just a budget residence for people who needed a economical place to stay, it was not one of the inner circles of hell. But many residents felt hurt by much of the media coverage at the time.
Elisa's death is still seen as a case of misadventure. During a confusing mental episode she is thought to have wandered onto the roof of the hotel and gone for a swim in one of the hotel water tanks. She was not intoxicated by drugs or alcohol at the time, but she did have a number of medications for her mental condition in her body at the time of her death.
But some people still find her death a mystery worth remembering.
chronology: Donald Campbell Bluebird Crash. A premonition?
In 1967 Donald Campbell fired up his powerful Bluebird Jet Boat and began his high speed race across a lake intent on breaking the high speed water record.
Sadly his jet boat spirald into the air in a spectacular crash killing him instantly.
A engineer who worked with Mr Campbell recalled that just before he fired up the powerful engines of his jet boat he told him that while playing cards the night before he had drawn the same two cards as Mary Queen of Scots drew the night before she was beheaded. 'Am going to get the chop' said Mr Campbell getting ready for the speed test. Hours later he was killed.
30 years later his Bluebird Boat was found and his body was recovered from the wreck.
But, like Queen Mary, Mr Campbell had lost his head. His skull was never found..............
chronology: Edgar Allan Poe makes a strange prediction.
In the American Writer's only novel, he writes of a shipwreck where a cabin boy is killed and eaten by some sailors.
40 years after the story was written by Poe, this diabolical incident did in fact happen. The boy who became dinner for his cannibal chums in fact had the same name as the boy Poe wrote of in his story.
Sceptics however point out that that shipwrecks were common in those days. And tho rarely reported, chowing down on dead shipmates also did occur at times.
But what about Poe naming the cabin boy exactly like the real unfortunate lad decades later? Well the name given was a common English name at the time. There really is not much outstanding about the coincidence say sceptics.
chronology: The strangest example of creepy name predictions is said to be Martin Keating in his book The Last Jehad which some claim predicted a 'Tom Mcveigh' was arrested for bombing a Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Mr Keating allegedly wrote his book 2 years before the Oklahoma City Bombing.
Well that would be a creepy coincidence along the lines of Edgar Alan Poe. But some people insist that the MacVeigh name and Oklahoma City were added in a later addition to the book. After the OC Bombing. The original book mentions a bombing in Chicago and says nothing about any MacVeigh they claim.
But it could be a genuine case of coincidence. During WW2 a man in London England was arrested who wrote crossword puzzles for the Times. He had given a number of the Code Names for the DDay landings in one of his puzzles. He had no idea why he was being questioned.
chronology: This date in 1848, the Communist Manifesto is Published in Europe.
Some describe the Manifesto as one of the most dangerous books ever written. Probably because it was published at a time when Europe was experiencing a number of popular revolutions by the public demanding reforms. But most historians dismiss any suggestion that the manifesto played any part in the public uprisings. They were already in progress with or without the manifesto being published.
Mr J Edgar Hoover is said to have sat down one afternoon and read the manifesto along with Das Capital when trying to understand Left Wing ideas. He found both writings frightful.
The manifesto was one of many Utopian Dreams at the time in Europe.
chronology: Two famous but very different Americans die this date. Malcom X in 1965 and Dr Billy Graham in 2018.
Malcom X is regarded by many people as one of the most important Left Wing speakers of the African American community, Dr Graham preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ to more people than any other person in history.
Zanjan: Except Graham didn't initially show Afro-Americans respect for their rights. Only later, under pressure from promoters for his crusades, he arranged for a few token Black representatives.
That was to hide the fact his fans in the stands were totally white. The promoters told him people were talking and that would reduce participation.
chronology: Zan, it is not just the South that had historical baggage. At the time you talk of if you placed catholics and protestants together in places like Glasgow or Belfast you would have problems. Upper Class people in England would have been horrified at the idea of standing anywhere near working class people at a London Billy Graham Rally back then. The South actually led the way to integrating Rally audiences around the world.
Dr Graham and his team understood being diplomatic is the only way to go.
Zanjan: I guess we read history differently - at the time, there were already racially and culturally integrated groups all over the world.
History shows that Graham and his bunch were late-comers, being more concerned about their personal image and people-pleasing than showing empathy for marginalized groups. They fed on the white privilege.
True leadership blazes a trail where nobody else has been - it doesn't take a spin around the familiar and comfortable. True pioneers get shot in the back. I wouldn't dare mention Graham in the same breath as freedom fighters, the first to try diplomacy.
It's eerie they died on the same calendar day - two religious men, worlds apart. Perhaps they've met in the Hereafter....wonder how that convo would go.
(Edited by Zanjan)
chronology: Doubt if Dr Graham would have spending much time having a argument with Malcolm Zan. As Dr Graham may have said ' we can spend two hours arguing over history or the same time spreading the Gospel. The Gospel is vastly more valuable and useful to people' .
Zanjan: I wasn't a Malcolm X fan - too hotly political for my taste but he was martyred for a righteous cause and that sacrifice can't be overlooked. Protest and rally were never the way to go, it was just a way to start.
If the Gospel had been that useful in modernity and postmodernity, those problems wouldn't have existed. Integration and unity is what society must work on.
(Edited by Zanjan)
chronology: A curious moment. For Astronomers on Earth last year it looked like 'something wicked this way comes' .
A strange object was moving towards earth from space. But they soon found the identity of the object. It was not a UFO it was the third stage of an American Atlas Centaur Rocket launched in 1966..
On checking records they discovered the Atlas had drifted out to space then drifted back to near earth space.
But it was an odd moment for Astronomers. It is not every day they have an uknown spacecraft heading towards earth.
chronology: Golden Globes Award's this Sunday.
The Hollywood Awards ceremony are no stranger's to controversy, but as Thespians and Movie Professionals gather in Hollywood this weekend media in various countries are louder than usual in criticism of the Golden Globe judges. The judge's are said to be the foreign Press in Hollywood. But some journalists in the Media are claiming many of the journalists on the award judging are cannot be considered professional journalists. There are also the usual complaints of lobbying by movie makers to push their film's to the top of the list's of Award Nomination's. It is also claimed there are no African American member's of the judge's.
The Oscar Awards usually sees Hollywood treading carefully not to offend countries who often issue complaints about some movies they find misrepresenting their country. But the Globe's are in the line of criticism usually by Media member's who see the Awards as too outside of public accountability.
chronology: Stand up X, England's biggest Anti Lockdown Protest Group.
Stand up X are usually ignored by Britains News Media, but occasionally they are featured in American and European Media Agencies. Video footage of a young woman being arrested by British Police in her nightgown after posting videos of empty hospitals and ambulances were broadcast in America and Europe, but were not seen in England.
The people who support Protest X are promoting the idea that the Covid Pandemic is a Scam, and that Orwellian misinformation is being distributed by the British Media. On one occasion Protest X supporter's visited hospitals and Ambulance depots after hysterical report's in the British Media described line after line of Covid patients being carried into hospitals by overwhelmed ambulance crews.
What the Protest X supporter's found were empty hospitals and ambulances parked up and left in long lines with no crew's. 'Where are all these patients' ? Asked one Protest X supporter, the hospital is empty and the ambulances have no one operating them.
It is not clear why the Police arrested the Protest X woman supporter, or why she was led away at night in nightgown. The Official Police Statement about why the woman was arrested, and whether or not she was later charged with anything has not been reported in any media.
Protest X supporter's are not the usual'rent a mob' protestors who some claim are the usual demonstraters. They are mostly conspiracy theorists who have come together to protest what they claim is a scam.
They face hefty fines if arrested at public rallies or gatherings.
chronology: America is richer probably than it can calculate.
Britain's BP discovered the vast Atlantis Oil Fields under the Gulf of Mexico and America was instantly very richer. But it seems now that the Oil Fields down there are almost vast beyond calculating.
According to some estimates, the Gulf of Mexico alone can supply America's Oil needs for a hundred year's.
