With Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden dead and Muammar Qadaffi destined to meet a similar fate, the “war on terror” is in desperate need of a new poster child. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iran have been painted as a possible candidate, but most of the world knows that “the threat from Iran” is simply U.S. and Israeli propaganda. So is there anyone left on Earth who can assume that frightening role, or will the powers that be now point to the stars to identify the whereabouts of their next manufactured villain?
Well, as ridiculous as it sounds, the mainstream media has been playing up the idea that an alien invasion from outer space is not only plausible, but might even be inevitable. Not to worry though, according to some globalist mouthpieces. That threat might turn out to be a blessing in disguise.
During a recent appearance on television news network CNN with Fareed Zakaria, Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman suggested that a showdown with hostile life forms could be a good thing for the U.S. economy. He said: “If we discovered that space aliens were planning to attack and we needed a massive buildup to counter the space alien threat, and inflation and budget deficits took secondary place, this slump would be over in 18 months.”
The space alien theme came up again on a segment of Dylan Ratigan’s MSNBC television show where the topic was explored with guest Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist who once defined terrorists as those who oppose world government.
Kaku claimed that NASA’s Kepler satellites have identified 50 planets that are “very much Earth-like.” Though he believes that most of the life forms on these planets would probably be nothing more than basic microbial germs, he doesn’t discount the possibility that a few could be home to intelligent beings—perhaps even more advanced than here on Earth—and that some of them could be hostile.
“The universe is 13.7 billion years old,” says Kaku. “It’s possible they have weapons we can’t even conceive of.”
Sounding like a globalist himself, Ratigan asked Kaku if the threat of an alien invasion could lead to a form of global governance in order to deal with things like climate change, global finance and the sovereignty of individual nations.
Smiling like the cat that ate the canary, Kaku replied by referencing a quote by Ronald Reagan, who in 1985 told the Soviet Union’s Mikhail Gorbachev: “I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”
Then Kaku added: “If we are faced with a common enemy in outer space, it would indeed help to unite the Earth just the way Ronald Reagan said.”
Kaku’s dialogue is classic New World Order rhetoric. In 1993, the Club of Rome published The First Global Revolution that states: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.”
Thanks in large part to the Climategate scandal of 2009, where a number of scientists were outed for hyping the global warming threat,more people are starting to realize that global warming is nothing more than a hoax, and public support for globalist efforts to curb carbon emissions is on the wane. So is the NWO crowd now resorting to desperate measures—like hyping the threat of an alien invasion—to put their agenda back on course?
In addition to using the recent propaganda about an alien invasion as a pretext to reinvigorate the global warming movement, it could also serve a dual purpose by rallying American support for weaponizing space.
For over a year, covert launchings of military spacecraft have received almost no press at all. Since early 2010, the U.S. has sent two X-37B robotic planes into orbit. Though the Air Force flatly denies that this marks the beginning of space weaponization, some prominent Russians adamantly disagree.
According to South Africa’s Times Live, former Russian Air Force commander Anatoly Kornukov was furious upon learning of the X-37B’s launch in March 2010.
Kornukov said the spacecraft would significantly increase U.S. fighting power and demonstrates that America has ambitions to reach space and threaten Russia.
“The U.S. has completely spat on calls from Russia and the world to abandon plans for the deployment of weapons in space,” Kornukov said. “The aggressors from space could turn Russia into something like Iraq or Yugoslavia.”
