Clyde Lewis | May 7, 2021


Last month the skies over the Pacific Northwest were lit up by falling firey debris that was plummeting to earth. While the media reported that the debris was from a SpaceX rocket and that it posed no threat to people below– there was a different story that did not make the mainstream news.

The National Weather Service in Seattle said that the widely reported bright objects in the sky on March 25th were remnants of the second stage of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket leaving comet-like trails as they burned up upon reentry to the Earth’s atmosphere.

After the March 25 event, a farmer discovered a nearly intact piece of rocket in a private field,

The approximately 5-foot composite-overwrapped pressure vessel used for storing helium left a nearly 4-inch dent in the ground.

Luckily no one was hurt but this raises eyebrows about whatever goes up must come down and how it might affect us Chicken littles here in earth.

Nearly 40 years ago, when it seemed that conspiracy theory and speculation about corruption was in its adolescence in the United States, there was always a paranoid notion that from the times of the Russian satellite Sputnik until now there was always the unproven notion that somebody, in some government was in space watching us and that ransom individuals would be obliterated where they stand with some laser or particle beam weapon.

In the beginning, we had the conspiracy theory; now we are learning about the cover-ups and secret investigations into UFOs that would generate the idea of an alien threat and create a demand for a space shield or blockade to ward off any kind of alien entanglements—this would have to be a world issue and not just an issue that would be limited to our military alone.

Arms control advocates say it is clearly the beginning of a “weaponization of space” precursor to a precision global strike capability and a full spectrum surveillance apparatus that would allow the US to collect data for months at a time over anywhere it chooses and then unleash firepower without warning anywhere in the world including here at home if necessary.

However, there is that worry that we may end up being targets of some errant asteroid that slips through the cracks — or some space debris that head toward earth and with it’s velocity becomes a kinetic kill weapon that accidentally explodes over a major city or lands on some cow pasture wiping out a whole head of cattle.

The study of stellar fragments, sweepers and stowaways has always been an interest of mine as I am often reminded that even though major asteroids or comets tend to miss us in a cosmic close shave – fragments of these celestial visitors can actually enter our atmosphere and create a huge burst that can create an EMP or do serious damage through gravity waves triggering major seismic events.”

In 2009, there was a top-secret meeting of some of the richest elites in the world. Their meeting was about how a growing population can be reduced and what options were on the table with regard to health care, education, vaccines, military incursion, and natural disasters.

Taking their cue from Bill Gates they agreed that overpopulation was a priority, there were also a variety of possible ways that population’s numbers can be lowered in order to maintain resource balance.

A year later another meeting was held by the Rockefeller Foundation which issued a detailed workbook called “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.”Scenario For The Future of Technology And International Development by Ronald Matte - issuu

This workbook has been called the “Rockefeller playbook” but conspiracy theorists and has been derided over time by various fact checkers that claim that the book does not exist.

Well of course, something that is called the Rockefeller playbook does not exist but a planning workbook about future scenarios the earth might face is no joke and certainly is no hoax.

I recently received a phone call from a listener who was concerned about a conspiracy theory that has spread on the internet about something called, Operation Lockstep. It is a section of the book that explains how world leaders will have to contend with a possible pandemic.2010: Rockefeller's 'Operation Lockstep' Predicted 2020 'Lockdown' | Principia Scientific Intl. | International development, World economic forum, Scientific

The book outlines the three phases of public response to the pandemic.

Phase 1 includes “mild cold/flu” that the “media” will exaggerate to induce “mass paranoia and fear” and inflation of COVID-19 case numbers. Phases 2 and 3 are marked by weakened immune systems due to masks, social distancing, exposure to 5G radiation and the weaponization of a deadlier virus because of widespread refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The latter will result in “anarchy from all sides” between the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

To be honest, I do not know here some of these interpretations come from — but there is a section of the planning report released by the Rockefeller Foundation in 2010 that describes a series of scenarios — including a pandemic — in which technology could be used to help to restore humanity.

I actually addressed the planning workbook in a show I called “Lockstep.”

I emphasized that what was in the workbook was hypothetical — but there was no Project or Operation called “Lockstep” it was just a section in the workbook that described In 2010, the Rockefeller Foundation funded a scenario-planning exercise that envisioned how hypothetical future events could impact the development of technology.

It was basically the framework for a post scarcity economy. It has a chapter called ‘Lock Step’ which reports a global pandemic as if it happened in the past, but which is clearly intended as a rehearsal for the future.

The workbook eerily paints a prophecy : “During the pandemic, national leaders around the world tightened their authority and imposed strict rules and restrictions, from mandatory face masks to body temperature controls at the entrance of communal areas such as train stations and supermarkets”.

Clearly, tightening up authority is the desired answer. But it gets worse, according to this ‘Scenario of the Future’: “Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and surveillance of citizens and their activities stalled and was even intensified.”

“In developed countries, this increased surveillance took many forms: biometric identifiers for all citizens, for example, and tighter regulation of key industries whose stability was considered vital to national interests.”

However, this workbook was not just about pandemics — it actually speaks about future events dealing with other catastrophic events that follow the pandemic.

Again, these are hypothetical scenarios.

On page 34 there is a section entitled, Hack Attack.

On this page, there is an outline of disasters and an era of catastrophe called the “Doom Decade.” It illustrates that between 2010 and the mid-2020’s the Earth will see some of the worst catastrophes ever recorded.

It says:

“Not surprisingly, this opening series of deadly asynchronous catastrophes (there were more) put enormous pressure on an already overstressed global economy that had entered the decade still in recession.

Massive humanitarian relief efforts cost vast sums of money, but the primary sources from aid agencies to developed-world governments had run out of funds to offer. Most nation-states could no longer afford their locked-in costs, let alone respond to increased citizen demands for more security, more healthcare coverage, more social programs and services, and more infrastructure repair.”

Many catastrophes that were predicted were eco-collapse brought on by catastrophic weather and earth changes caused by solar weather and possible threats from space.

As I have outlined on my show — the pandemic is in the process of passing — we move into a scarcity economy, we see a scared population demanding more security, we see a move to universal health care, infrastructure repair –which of course is in line with President Biden’s Build Back Better campaign.

However what comes next is more fear mongering regarding weather and climate and threats from space.

To coin a conspiratorial phrase — “Right from the Rockefeller playbook.”

Now I am only half joking here we need to understand that the stage is being set for a revival of Climate Crisis –and as we have heard the last card which is an extraterrestrial threat.

Now these space threats can mean a number of things– most people are already convinced that with the pending announcement form the Department of Defense–we will be told that aliens are out in space and that the UFO’s or UAP that have been buzzing our Navy are piloted by hostile aliens.

But there is more to the story.

The workbook predicted mass loss of life in several African countries. The geological upheaval of crust displacement, climate collapse, violent earthquakes, disease outbreaks, and also a possible asteroid strike which throws much of the world into chaos.

Extraterrestrial threats also include space debris falling to earth, asteroids, and even Coronal mass ejections that can cause what is known as the Carrington Effect.What Was the Carrington Event? - Universe Today

A week ago, NASA ran an asteroid impact simulation event as the space agency ups its game in the pursuit of keeping Earth safe from threatening space rocks.

While there are no known significant asteroids on a collision course with Earth, an asteroid impact is considered inevitable in our planet’s future. Scientists claim that the potential impact could still be millions of years away, However, NASA is working now to prepare for the inevitable.

A group of experts from US and European space agencies attended a week-long exercise led by NASA in which they faced a hypothetical scenario: An asteroid 35 million miles away was approaching the planet and could hit within six months.

With each passing day of the exercise, the participants learned more about the asteroid’s size, trajectory, and chance of impact. Then they had to cooperate and use their technological knowledge to see if anything could be done to stop the space rock.

The group determined that none of Earth’s existing technologies could stop the hypothetical asteroid from striking given the six-month time frame of the simulation. In this alternate reality, the asteroid crashed into eastern Europe.

As far as we know, no asteroids currently pose a threat to Earth in this way. But an estimated two-thirds of asteroids 460 feet in size or bigger — large enough to wreak considerable havoc — remain undiscovered. That’s why NASA and other agencies are attempting to prepare for such a situation.

The fictitious asteroid in the simulation was called 2021PDC. In NASA’s scenario, it was first “spotted” on April 19, at which time it was thought to have a 5% of hitting our planet on October 20, six months after its discovery date.

But Day 2 of the exercise fast-forwarded to May 2, when new impact-trajectory calculations showed that 2021PDC would almost certainly hit either Europe or northern Africa. The participants in the simulation considered various missions in which spacecraft could try to destroy the asteroid or deflect it off its path.

But they concluded that such missions wouldn’t be able to get off the ground in the short amount of time before the asteroid’s impact.

“If confronted with the 2021PDC hypothetical scenario in real life, we would not be able us to launch any spacecraft on such short notice with current capabilities,” said the participants.

They also considered trying to blow up or disrupt the asteroid using a nuclear explosive device. “Deploying a nuclear disruption mission could significantly reduce the risk of impact damage,” they found.

Still, the simulation stipulated that 2021PDC could be anywhere from 114 feet to half a mile in size, so the chance that a nuke could make a dent was uncertain.

Day 3 of the exercise skipped ahead to June 30, and Earth’s future looked grim: 2021PDC’s impact trajectory showed it headed for eastern Europe.

By Day 4, which fast-forwarded to a week before the asteroid impact, there was a 99% chance the asteroid would hit near the border between Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria. The explosion would bring as much energy as a large nuclear bomb.

All that could be done was evacuate the affected regions ahead of time.

It’s tempting to assume that in the real world, astronomers would spot an asteroid akin to 2021PDC with much more notice than six months. But the world’s ability to surveil near-Earth objects (NEOs) is woefully incomplete.

Any space rock with an orbit that takes it within 125 million miles of the sun is considered an NEO. But Johnson said in July that NASA thinks “we’ve only found about a third of the population of asteroids that are out there that could represent an impact hazard to the Earth.”

It appears that the whole scenario looks like a page from the script for the movie Greenland— it certainly does not look like we succeed as we did in the movie Armageddon.

Comet Neowise, a 3-mile-wide chunk of space ice, passed with 64 million miles of Earth in July. Nobody knew that comet existed until a NASA space telescope discovered it approaching four months prior.Comet Neowise: How to see it and find in the sky before it disappears

In 2013, a meteor about 65 feet in diameter entered the atmosphere traveling 40,000 mph. It exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, without warning, sending out a shock wave that broke windows and damaged buildings across the region. More than 1,400 people were injured.

And in 2019, a 427-foot-wide, “city-killer” asteroid flew within 45,000 miles of Earth. NASA had almost no warning about it.

That is because currently, the only way scientists can track an NEO is by pointing one of Earth’s limited number of powerful telescopes in the right direction at the right time.

To address that problem, NASA announced two years ago that it would launch a new space telescope dedicated to watching for hazardous asteroids. That telescope, named the Near-Earth Object Surveillance Mission, along with the European Space Agency’s newly launched Test-Bed Telescope and the Flyeye Telescope that’s being built in Italy, should eventually bolster the number of NEOs we can track.

Meanwhile, after the table top exercise had concluded and the dismal news broke that we are woefully unprepared for a sneaky space rock that can devastated Europe – China announced that they are dealing with a space problem of another kind.

China launched the first module for its space station into orbit late Wednesday, but the mission launcher also reached orbit and is slowly and unpredictably heading back to Earth.

The Long March 5B, a variant of China’s largest rocket, successfully launched the 22.5-metric-ton Tianhe module from Wenchang Thursday local time. Tianhe separated from the core stage of the launcher after 492 seconds of flight, directly entering its planned initial orbit.How to Track Chinese Rocket Long March 5B That Is Falling to Earth 'Uncontrolled'

Designed specifically to launch space station modules into low Earth orbit, the Long March 5B uniquely uses a core stage and four side boosters to place its payload directly into low Earth orbit.

However, this core stage is now also in orbit and is likely to make an uncontrolled reentry this weekend — it is reported that it will be one of the largest instances of uncontrolled reentry of a spacecraft and could potentially land on an inhabited area.

Most expendable rocket first stages do not reach orbital velocity and reenter the atmosphere and land in a pre-defined reentry zone. Some other larger, second stages perform de-orbit burns to lower altitude to reduce time in orbit and lower chances of collisions with other spacecraft or to immediately reenter the atmosphere.

There had been speculation that the Long March 5B core would perform an active maneuver to de-orbit itself, but that appears not to have happened.

Ground based radars used by the U.S. military to track spacecraft and other objects in space have detected an object and cataloged it as the Long March 5B rocket body.

Now designated 2021-035B, the roughly 30-meter-long, five-meter-wide Long March 5 core stage is in a 170 by 372-kilometer altitude orbit traveling at more than seven kilometers per second.

A possible amateur ground observation of the rocket core showing regular flashes suggests that it is tumbling and thus not under control.

Where and when the new Long March 5B stage will land is impossible to predict. The decay of its orbit will increase as atmospheric drag brings it down into more denser. The speed of this process depends on the size and density of the object and variables include atmospheric variations and fluctuations, which are themselves influenced by solar activity and other factors.

The high speed of the rocket body means it orbits the Earth roughly every 90 minutes and so a change of just a few minutes in reentry time results in reentry point thousands of kilometers away.

The Long March 5B core stage’s orbital inclination of 41.5 degrees means the rocket body passes a little farther north than New York, Madrid and Beijing and as far south as southern Chile and Wellington, New Zealand, and could make its reentry at any point within this area.

The most likely event will see any debris surviving the intense heat of reentry falling into the oceans or uninhabited areas, but the risk remains of damage to people or property.

But of course, being in the wrong place at the right time would be extremely rare according to some scientists in order to ease panic they are saying that the likelihood of any human being getting hit is quite low. It’s extremely low.

So if the thing comes crashing down and it doesn’t affect you directly — you can yawn and get on with your life; as they say, there will be nothing to see here.

But these incidents will be happening a lot more now that the new space race is underway and the earth prepares its new battle domain in space.

Extraterrestrial threats are being taken more seriously and the space race now is heating up between China and the United States. Not only are they creating exotic weapons that may or may not be the answer to many military UFO reports they are also beefing up their ability to listen to extraterrestrial broadcasts.

Back in January of 2016 the Chinese Academy of Sciences unveiled its state-of-the-art radio dish in the country’s southwest. Almost twice as wide as the dish at America’s Arecibo Observatory, in the Puerto Rican jungle, the new Chinese dish is the largest in the world, if not the universe.

Though it is sensitive enough to detect spy satellites even when they’re not broadcasting, its main uses will be scientific, including an unusual one: The dish is Earth’s first flagship observatory custom-built to listen for a message from an extraterrestrial intelligence. If such a sign comes down from the heavens during the next decade, China may well hear it first.

It is sensitive enough to hear a civilization’s fainter radio whispers– like the ones we make when we are speaking to aircraft or using radar.

If extraterrestrials are out there, China may be the first to hear them.

Late in 2013, China sent a rocket to the Moon. It was carrying the Jade Rabbit probe to place in the Bay of Rainbows.China: Moon Mining only Beginning of Ambitious Space Plans | National Review

It has also been reported that quite possibly that the TIC TAC UFO’s that have been reported in the media could very well be advanced Chinese aircraft.

The United States Secretary of Navy is listed as the assignee on several radical aviation technologies patented by an aerospace engineer working at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) headquarters in Patuxent River, Maryland. One of these patents describes a “hybrid aerospace-underwater craft” claimed to be capable of truly extraordinary feats of speed and maneuverability in air, water, and outer space alike thanks to a revolutionary electromagnetic propulsion system.

The Chief Technical Officer of the Naval Aviation Enterprise personally wrote a letter claiming that the U.S. needs the patent as the Chinese are already “investing significantly” in aerospace technologies that sound eerily similar to the UFOs reported by Navy pilots in now well-known encounters. This raises the question, are the Chinese developing or even already flying craft leveraging similar advanced technology and is the Navy now scrambling to catch up?

If we go by the so-called Rockefeller playbook everything is proceeding according to plan – and Chicken Littles will have very right to say, I told you so.
