Doomsday Clock Moves 2.5 Minutes To Midnight

On the 26th of January, 2017, the Doomsday moved forward to 2 minutes and 30 seconds to midnight ~ created by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists in 1947 to convey the urgent threat nuclear weapons pose as well as other threats such as climate change also taken into account. Last year, the clock remained at 3 minutes. Today, with the Inauguration of Donald Trump, the clock has moved half a minute closer ~ the closest to midnight it’s been since 1953 with the JFK Cuban nuclear crisis. Noam Chomsky offers an important question to the planet today ~ Is it better to be smart than stupid ~ and it demands our collective response: Allen L Roland, PhD

 “It’s a near miracle that nuclear war has so far been avoided.” ~ Noam Chomsky

This is a riveting Chomsky hour long presentation but also listen to the 30 minute question and answer response ~ you will be rewarded for this timely and teaching Chomsky experience ~ particularly since we must repeat the doomsday clock by stopping Trump in his tracks ~ for our eventual survival is at risk.

    While I might be willing to give Chomsky ten minutes, I’m not willing to give him ninety.

    The Doomsday Clock was set closest to midnight (two minutes) in 1953 when the USA lit off the first thermonuclear bomb. Today, in an article at Antiwar dot com, it is noted: “North Korean officials aren’t backing town (sic) either, cautioning that this is a “dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war could break out at any minute.” North Korean Ambassador Kim In Ryong added that his government is fully ready to react to any war launched by the United States.”

    Sad to say, but the clock setting at 2.30 secs before midnight may be overly optimistic.

    There is no threat. There is the intention of deposing leaders and stealing their resources. That has continued unabated and encouraged by Universities and Churches alike. The doomsday clock is a clever device used to maintain an atmosphere of mystery and unrealistic fear. The Maya used to track a 49 year cycle because they noticed people spontaneously feared the end of the world every 49 years. Christianity plays on this perfectly and perpetuates it. The lack of a natural jubilee is part of this as well, because the lack of light at the end of the tunnel of debt, is just like death. It keeps the people under constant stress.
    No matter what day is today, the end is near. It is shade preventing light from entering the heart.

    I am writing to echo the comments of the three who have already written in. When i read Chomskey’s offering on 9/11, it was like being punched in the Solar Plexis. He can really only be considered as controlled opposition.

    We would not be as close if Chomsky wasn’t a gatekeeper for his tribes 9/11 massacres.
    I don’t care to hear his opinion, Dr. Roland.

    in my younger years I was a huge fan of Chomsky. However, as the fog has lifted, and the picture clears I wait for the MIT professor to rally for the Palestinians. Other than occasionally paying lip service in recognition of their plight I hear nothing. Then I thought about this. How does a MIT professor maintain an antiwar, antiestablishment platform for 41 years and keep his job? Simple, don’t bash Israel. Same with Amy Goodman. Cheap suits, the 2 of them.

    Closer to Midnight? Bravo Sierra. Going the wrong way. All of media, Academia, presstitutes, and bought off whores can write all they want about this but it doesn’t make it so. The truth is the truth even if no one believes it, and a lie is a lie even of everyone believes it. Nothing is at it seems. But wrong, wrong, wrong, on the whole clock thing. Everyone in this group of compromised stooges is so willing to pre-ejaculate a civil war, martial law, or Armageddon, in order to manifest it among the populace. The only hope they have is in fear. And even amongst the most infantile of mental and spiritual lackeys the establishment holds their greatest hope are becoming less relevant each and every day. Chomskey is the new Kissinger and their days are numbered. As well as their factions and benefactors. They have the minds of undeveloped children these lot, why do we pay them any mind?
