Hurricane Irma

Another week, another hurricane! No doubt the WaPo will be describing this one as another ‘one in a thousand year event’. The probability of two one-in-a-thousand-year events occurring in a fortnight isn’t one in two-thousand, boys, it’s about one in a million.

I suppose if a tornado were to hit Washington and take the roof off the WaPo building, the journalists would simply congregate outside and say, ‘Well, that’s something you don’t see every day’.

Boys, there are more inquiring minds on the Xinhua News Agency. If Charles Manson is ever let out on parole, I can see WaPo journalists asking him round to baby-sit for them.

Irma looks like another SHEWS-boosted storm. The chances of two Cat 5 storms (I appreciate that Harvey was ‘only’ a Cat 4 when it crossed the Texas coast) occurring naturally this close together and hitting two key American states are statistically very low indeed.

We know that the DVD has a storm-boosting weapon system (SHEWS, or Scalar High Energy Weapon System). We know that the Federal Republic of Germany has been engaged in a quasi-war with the United States of America since 9/11. We also know that Germany was opposed to the decision of the American people to elect President Trump and that German assets in Washington have been instrumental in the outrageous smearing of the President with the baseless Russian allegation.

We also know that German penetration assets in US agencies and the federal bureaucracy have been successful so far in blocking intelligence about SHEWS from reaching the President, although they may have failed to prevent the Vice-President from being briefed in. Interestingly, Vice-President Pence traveled to Fort George G. Meade in Maryland this week. I don’t think he went there for a cup of tea, not that you’ve got much chance of getting a decent cuppa at the NSA (sorry, guys). (I expect they gave him Pepsi – if I remember rightly the CIA do Coke and the NSA do Pepsi.)

With the President in the dark and operating blind, not least as everyone in a position to get a copy of Spyhunter to him has so far sat on it, we also know that the Germans understood that they would get another free hit against their hated American enemy.

We also know that the German DVD is the world’s most powerful and ruthless intelligence agency, far more ruthless than the Nazis ever were, indeed they make the Nazis look like pussies.

Hurricanes don’t normally follow coastlines, at least not for hundreds of miles. They usually cross inland and downgrade to tropical storms. Yet Irma at one point was predicted to track up the Florida coast, multiplying the economic damage.

No hurricane this powerful has ever before been observed over the open Atlantic. You can forget man-made global warming – it’s a hoax, propagated mainly by German assets, fellow-travelers and scientifically-illiterate idiots. There was a significant and sudden increase in ocean surface temperatures in Irma’s path, consistent with SHEWS energy being poured in.

Interestingly, Irma’s strength also fluctuated, consistent with the jamming by the NSA of SHEWS transmissions. I am calling Irma as another German SHEWS attack, with the Atlantic coastal belt of the State of Florida as the primary target and the British and US Virgin Islands as the secondary.

The ‘where is your evidence’ boys

People with no understanding of how intelligence agencies operate often ask, or shout at, intelligence commentators, asking, or screaming, ‘where is your evidence?’ Intelligence agencies HARDLY EVER hand out sensitive raw data. They just give out product.

You’ve got to work out which intelligence commentators are real and have serious agency contacts and distinguish them from the wannabes and the fakes. Not always easy, although I’ll give you a clue: only serious intelligence commentators are targeted with malicious bomb hoax prosecutions!

You can forget Bad Guy agencies fessing up and handing over evidence of their crimes. Our community partner Adolf Hitler was probably the most open and honest Chancellor Germany has ever had. He was certainly the most charming, as long you weren’t Jewish, although he appointed people who partly Jewish to his cabinet. I’m NOT saying that he was all that open and honest, of course – it’s just that the opposition wasn’t all that stiff.

Even Hitler never admitted to his crimes, however. What chance is there of his successor Merkel admitting to a crime against peace? It would be like expecting Charles Manson, a German asset BTW, to say where all the bodies are buried.

No Bad Guy bureaucracy in history has ever owned up to what it has done, unless it had to. Yet still, some 1,700 years after the first modern bureaucracy was created at the Vatican, people expect Bad Guys to hand over secrets, just like that. (There are Good Guys in the Vatican as well, of course, including that nice man Pope Benedict, who’s rather nicer than the other pope.) The ‘where is your evidence’ brigade are simply naïve.

The legal consequences of boosting Harvey and Irma

Projected path of Irma

The boosting of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and their direction towards the continental United States, were Acts of War by the Federal Republic of Germany upon the United States.

If so advised, President Trump would be entitled to seek a War Powers Resolution from Congress and follow President Wilson in declaring war on Germany. (President Roosevelt didn’t need to – Hitler declared war on America first.)

Since high-energy weather weapons have yet to be declared to be Weapons of Mass Destruction, I do not say that strategic nuclear retaliation would be justified.

A total conventional war, including the bombing of key German strategic targets such as Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich by the USAF’s powerful B-52 and B-1B force would however be justified. If the Krauts don’t want to be bombed they shouldn’t have attacked America.

As a matter of public international law, it is irrelevant that the decision to attack America was taken by the Director of the DVD, not the German Federal Chancellor, nor the German federal government. Germany is and always has been an intelligence state, where the visible organs of the state are only nominally in control.

The decision to invade Luxembourg and Belgium in 1914 was taken by the German General Staff, not our community partner the Kaiser, nor the Chancellor, von Bethmann-Hollweg, who, like Merkel, was a mere figurehead.

It is also irrelevant that there are nice Germans. There’s no point in posting a comment saying that you met a nice German called Hermann in a bar in Hamburg last week, and he gave you a wonderful shag. I too have met nice Germans, several in fact. The problem with Germany however has always been that nice Germans never get to make the decisions.

Germany’s not a democracy, unlike Britain, Russia and America. It’s also irrelevant that Germany’s armed forces are weak and that the German Army’s last major combat engagement against American ground forces was the Battle of the Bulge. I doubt that any large combat formation of the Bundeswehr or the Luftwaffe would remain operational after 30 days of war-fighting against America.

The same could be said of the Iraqi armed forces in 2003. It didn’t make the war illegal. In effect German intelligence has been writing cheques that the German military cannot cash. They made the same mistake in 1914 and 1939. They can’t stop themselves, but it’s not our problem.

The position of Great Britain

Barbuda in the Leeward Islands is part of the British Commonwealth. The British Virgin Islands are a Crown Colony, i.e. a British possession. The British position has always been that an armed attack on a Member State of the Commonwealth of Nations would justify a Declaration of War against the aggressor. For the purposes of the Law of War an attack on a British colony is indistinguishable from an attack on Great Britain herself.

Thus the unprovoked Argentine attack on the Falkland Islands in 1982 led to war with the Argentine, and rightly so.

The German decision to attack Barbuda and the British Virgin Islands would justify a British Declaration of War on the Federal Republic of Germany and the implementation of our War Plan for Total Germany. The sensible thing, if you guys did not join in, would to be invite Russia to declare war as well and attack Germany from the east. They key to defeating Germany has always been to engage her in a two-front war.

It is an utter irrelevance that Barbuda and the BVI lay between the storm’s formation point and the primary target. Germany invaded Belgium and Luxembourg in 1914 in order to outflank the French army and capture Paris. The fact that Belgium wasn’t the primary target mattered not. You may as well say that the decision of German military commanders in Belgium to permit their troops to rape Belgian nuns and bayonet Belgian babies to death wasn’t a war crime because the atrocities had the ulterior motive of frightening the civilian population into submission and freeing up troops for the attack on Paris.

Obviously if we do decide to go to war, which would in practice require the resignation of our Chamberlain-like Prime Minister Theresa May, who would rather sacrifice British and West Indian lives than stand up to Germany, no offense intended, the Royal Navy would blockade German ports. Blockade was vital in both world wars. That would include mining the Rhine and the Danube, of course. There is little point in sinking the German merchant fleet, or bottling it up in her North Sea ports, and leaving the back door open!

War with Germany would be popular and provide a great boost to the British economy, as well as morale. Of course there would be lots of dead Germans, but that’s the price you pay if you attack the British Commonwealth and murder innocent British subjects. It’s sad, but there it is. As that nice man Bomber Harris used to say, you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.

Capture of the DVD’s HQ in Dachau would be a key war aim. We must not repeat the strategic mistake we made in 1918 and again in 1945 of leaving German intelligence intact. All we got after the first lot was World War II. After the second lot we got the European Union.

We’ve also got to break up Germany. It’s the key to a lasting peace in Europe. Our community partner Harry Hun is an aggressive beast and needs to be tamed.

The LA fires

In this case, direct evidence of al Qaeda’s strategy of starting bushfires exists and is in the public domain – it was seized by Seal Team Six in the 2011 raid on the former Osama bin Laden compound in Pakistan. As with hurricanes nothing has been done to warn communities of the dangers, or make preparations to protect the civilian population.

I happen to know La Tuna Canyon. It’s a pleasant part of the world. I also happen to know that there are some very important CIA-sourced records in a non-fire-hardened facility in a neighboring canyon.

If anyone on the LAPD SWAT team reads this they may recall a plan to protect that facility which involved sortieing a U-2 from Beale. (I still remember the bemused call in the early hours of the morning from the U-2 squadron’s intelligence officer wanting to know why he was getting calls from Meade, why the Bad Guys were headed to this particular canyon, what the hell did I need with a U-2 doing a racetrack pattern at FL600 over the Pasadena Freeway and how the hell did a Limey civilian become involved.)

The chances of these particular fires having started by themselves seem to me to be pretty low. No doubt the LA Times will be favouring its readers with fairy tales involving careless smokers and cigarette butts. They need their own butts smoking, no offense intended.

Please don’t try this at home, but it is harder to start a bushfire in open country with a single discarded cigarette than you may imagine. It won’t be al Qaeda, but it’ll be ISIS, or a bunch of Mexicans. Cans of accelerant are likely to be involved.

Some years ago, having cottoned on to al Qaeda’s plan to wage war on the West by starting bush fires, I put forward a plan to upgrade the Western world’s firefighting capability. You don’t put out a bush or forest fire with buckets of water, or even fire hoses. You put out a fire in open country from the air, not the ground.

For that you need water-bombers, although they don’t just drop water. As it happens piston-engined airplanes are more efficient at lower altitudes than jets. They also suffer less performance degradation from superheated air than jets. Try watching a jet take off in hot conditions and you’ll see what I mean. (I once sat on the flight-deck of an RAF VC-10 and watched a PIA Boeing trying to get airborne from Luqa on a hot day. The crew weren’t convinced that she was actually going to make it – I’ve never seen an airliner so close to crashing.)

There happen to be rather a large number of suitable airframes lying around. They tend to be long-range 4-engined jobs, and could easily fly the Pacific. The summer in Oz happens at a different time of year to the northern hemisphere.

Since the West is facing a major fire threat, defense budgets could be used to help, and countries could help each other. Water-bombers could position to the appropriate hemisphere at the time of maximum danger, with heavy maintenance being done in the fall/spring.

Douglas DC-7C

You would be surprised how long piston-engined airliners can be kept in the air. Just ask the boys and girls at Everts Air Cargo in Alaska. They’re still flying Douglas DC-6Bs! When not needed to fight fires they could put in crowd-pleasing appearances at air shows. Fighting terrorism can be fun!

We are getting nowhere near enough water and retardant on bushfires. I’m sure the good people of La Tuna Canyon would have loved to see, and hear the roar of, a DC-7C coming in low to bomb the hell of that naughty old fire with thousands of gallons of retardant. For all the good the politicians are doing they may as well be standing by the fire and pissing on it.

I’m all for pissing on ISIS instead and getting our act together. And if that means a new lease of life for some wonderful old aircraft, some quality flight time for retired airline pilots and introducing awe-struck young apprentices to the intricacies and power of a Wright R-3350-988TC18EA1 Turbo-Compound, great. That’s 3,350 turbocharged cubic inches by the way, folks – it’s a lot of engine. Put it in your Camarro and it would blow the wheels off.

Before anyone asks what do I know about firefighting and have I ever handled a fire hose, I have actually. In a different life, a long time ago, when the planet was young, I was on the firefighting team of a nickel plant in North Queensland, where I learned how to handle a fire hose. It’s not quite like directing a garden hose. Two hands please, and body weight over the hose. One hand under and one hand over is what I was taught. And if you lose control, hang on for dear life!

My reading this week

Aside from hurricane tracking reports, I have been reading Graham Simons’s splendid tribute to the Boeing B-29, B-29 Superfortress: Giant Bomber of World War Two and Korea (Pen and Sword, 2012). This well-written and balanced account tells the stirring story of how the boys at Boeing created the most advanced bomber of World War II.

The intelligence angle – Abwehr sabotage of the B-29 program and theft of the blueprints, including the role of Barack Obama’s nominal mother-in-law down in Wichita, Kansas – is not covered, but I would not expect it to be. Getting the giant new plane into combat by 1944 was a major achievement.

B-29

Simons covers the great fire raid on Tokyo on March 9th/10th 1945 very fairly. Unlike whingeing liberal weanies, who cover the fact up, Simons is objective enough to point out that much of Japan’s war production was contracted out to small facilities, which very often were located near major war plants.

Irma on 11-Sept-2017

The March 9th raid, and its follow-ups, therefore legitimately targeted Japanese war production. I know some liberal historians have inflated the casualty figure for propaganda purposes, but I go with the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s estimate of 124,711 killed and seriously injured. That was a shame, but if the Japs didn’t want Tokyo razed to the ground they shouldn’t have bombed Pearl Harbor. I’m sure their intelligence knew from the Abwehr that America was developing a massive new superbomber.

Simons explains and justifies Curtis LeMay’s decision to switch from precision high-altitude daylight bombing to low level night bombing. General LeMay was undoubtedly correct.

The targets were usually obscured by cloud, there were serious icing problems at 30,000 ft and the jetstream induced large bombing errors. General LeMay, sadly long dead, was a friend of a friend, who flew recon missions for him, and a fine air commander.

He benefited from his time in England of course, adopting RAF Bomber Command tactics to win the war in the Pacific and obviate the need to invade Japan. The boys of XXIst Air Force Bomber Command did great work.

The great fire raids on Japan demonstrated an enduring truth: the democracies are not weak. When we wage war, we wage it to win. We don’t start wars, but we sure as hell finish ‘em.

    As the first line above says, “Another week, another hurricane!” This week, it’s a pair of them off US east coast. Jose and Maria, Joseph and Mary. Whoever chooses the names of storms each season needs psych meds! Jose is a hurricane now, and TS Maria is expected to become a hurricane later today, per NHC. Advisories on the home page are at the top in red.

      Maria as a name is based on the Latin mare, ie sea. Maria, marine, the sea itself.

    For anyone in the areas affected by Harvey, Irma, the Los Angeles fires, etc. and their loved ones… If you are inside the zone in a shelter or whatever and want to tell family you are safe, or if you are the loved one on the outside looking for someone who might be in a shelter, there is a Safe & Well website to do that. Site is https://safeandwell.communityos.org/cms/index.php There are 2 separate buttons: List Myself, if you are inside; Search Registrants, if you are on the outside looking for someone. You need either a phone number, or street address of previous residence. I can’t vouch for its efficiency, as I haven’t tried looking for anyone.

    • JS  September 11, 2017 at 12:49 pm

      SATERN ham radio emergency comms network says organizations are NOT sending health & welfare status requests INTO the area, which is normal. The priority is always to get those H&W messages OUT as quickly as possible. So for those on the outside who don’t have direct contact with a loved one yet, you might want to try the Safe&Well site if you have an urgent need to do so, which is what SATERN recommends you do. Message is on SATERN website here: http://www.satern.org/en/HomePage.html

    As for hurricanes making abrupt course changes, I quote Donna in 1960. She raked up the west coast of Florida (just like Irma) then put on her turn signal at Tampa and headed due east to Cape Canaveral. I know, because I was there. My family fled Tampa, and as we fled due east along the bee-line expressway I looked out the back window as this dark monster chased us all the way across the center of florida. I was five. We got to the house just in time (Florida houses were all made of concrete block in those days) and rode it out there. We were watching President Kennedy giving a speech when the antenna came crashing down.

    I have said this before repeatedly (apparently to deaf ears) that if you want to know what is going on in the ionosphere and the effect of RF radiation on it, ask the hams. Hundreds monitor the ionosphere constantly.

    • JS  September 11, 2017 at 12:24 pm

      Hear, hear on the hams.

  6. Khalid Talaat  September 11, 2017 at 5:58 am

    From Ground Control to Major Shrimpton: We would like to know. What would you saythe magnitude of the energy contained in a Hurricane that can suspend billions of gallons of water and then dump it on a city like New Orleans or Houston? Now what would the energy requirements be to divert a mass of energy such ss that of a hurricane, 10 meters, by a SCARY weapon? Now here is my question: from where does a SCARY weapon get its energy? Did you take into account the first rule of energy?
    Mr. Shrimpton, I think you should give Marvel Comics a ring. There might be a good match there. Imagination is a wonderful thing until it is forced on others as reality. No offense intended.

    • Khalid Talaat  September 11, 2017 at 6:05 am

      I know who did it. However, if I tell you, you will say I have no proof.

    • David Odell  September 11, 2017 at 5:48 pm

      Khalid , the scariest weapons require very little energy, but instead rely on position and timing. Like religion, timing and message combined with forethought and position can do more than those who struggle in wrestling matches against multiple opponents. If you know the weakness and can exploit it at the precise moment, you too, can influence and direct a very great abundance of energy. Try not to outthink yourself. Supply is not created, it already exists.

  7. Senaca  September 10, 2017 at 6:28 am

    IRMA = RAMI. “Rami is a form of the Hebrew and Indian name, Ram. From Hebrew roots, its meaning is ‘exalted, supreme‘. The name was borne by the second son of Hezron, a descendant of Judah in the Old Testament of the Bible. It’s possible that “Rami” was similar at that time to adding the “i” vowel sound to names then, as many do today such as Shmuli. Avrami and Chani, etc.” Ref.: https: //judaism.stackexchange.com/ questions/57623/does-the-name-rami-%D7%A8%D7%9E%D7%99-have-a-meaning-based-in-judaism-if-so-what-is-it

    • JS  September 10, 2017 at 10:31 am

      Senaca, no need to look for weird acrostics. Irma is just plain Irma, the female form of Irmin.

  8. cynthiamaccioli  September 9, 2017 at 9:26 am

    Comedy hour at VT, love it. One thing that has always puzzled me about Shrimpton’s long drawn out dissertations about the omnipotent power of Germany is why she continues to “contribute” billions of shekels to 3rd generation Jews in Israel whose antecedents just so happened to be breathing the same air as Adolph Hitler. Would not doubt that American Jews living in America with no kin in Europe during the war also collect from Germany for their nightmares, oy vey. Why doesn’t Germany tell Israel to bugger off?

    • Eduardo  September 9, 2017 at 4:15 pm

      When a 88 year old German woman denying the holocaust and the gas chambers in KZ camps gets a 2 year prison sentence in Germany we all know who is running or influencing Germany. After WW2 Germany ceased to exist as a sovereign Nation and became a penal colony of Israel. German Politicians who criticize Israel in any way have no future in the Bundestag as the Jewish Central committee watches carefully who fills the seat of Government. Any movement of “independence” is choked or discredited before it starts on behalf of Anti Semitism which is punished worse then rape or murder in Deutschland. German money flows freely to Jewish bank accounts. It is a German tradition to pay their “debt”.
      Even if Mr Shrimp disagrees, his so hated country and their countrymen are run by Mossad & friends while much of Germany is sound asleep in front of their Tv’s.

  9. Jim G  September 9, 2017 at 9:06 am

    Just FYI, one internet site claims, on behalf of Russian intelligence, that Russia did Harvey. VT’s Greenhalgh claims Norway, US, and Russia have weather modification capabilities. You are the first to name Germany. Looks like Irma might go into the Gulf now; doesn’t seem to want to go north over Florida. Now hitting Cuba harder than anyone else. Must be HARP fighting back. The big earthquake in Mexico (connected to the plate that Dr. Keshe claimed was going to subduct and kill millions) gave off bright earth-quake lights that looked like a cross between Aurora Borealis and lightning. Kind of cool, but I didn’t learn about these in college. Cause? And then the solar flares…? Are these affecting the plasma core of the earth? We live in interesting times.

    • Ian Greenhalgh, Managing Editor  September 9, 2017 at 9:16 am

      No, I did not make any such claim about Norway, US, and Russia, I have said nothing remotely like that in fact.

    • Jim G  September 9, 2017 at 10:07 am

      Sorry Ian, it was Shrimp: “SHEWS stands for Scalar High Energy Weapons System. At least three ground stations, in Alaska, Norway and Russia, are able to bounce prodigious amounts of radio-magnetic energy off the ionosphere. This energy in turn can be used to boost storms or trigger earthquakes.”

      http://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/09/03/hurricane-harvey/

    • Ian Greenhalgh, Managing Editor  September 9, 2017 at 2:20 pm

      No problem Jim. While I suspect scalar weapons do exist, I doubt they are more than prototypes and developmental systems not yet ready for operational use, and I don’t believe there is a DVD behind it as there is no evidence.

    • David Odell  September 9, 2017 at 2:12 pm

      Jim G, If something weird is blamed on Russia, the list of those motivated to do such, is rather short, and rather obvious. Attacking foreign civilians with a hurricane (the assumed theory) is not something that would fit the character profile of Russian behavior or their interest. Not everyone is like DC and NATO.

  10. kaho  September 9, 2017 at 8:28 am

    NASA reports of an unusual series of fairly large solar flares occurring these days. These cause huge amounts of ultraviolet radiation and X-rays to be emitted into the solar system. Arriving at the places where the planets are, these rays become absorbed by the various gaseous planetary atmospheres, and on our planet renders terrestrial life mostly unharmed. But that is not to say that they do not affect the upper layers of the atmosphere. And so, might it not be reasonable to query, if there might not exist some correlation between solar flares and meteorological phenomena ? I am not an atmospheric physicist, and so it’s just a question.

    GEO-ENGINEERING goes public ! This is as close to an admission as I have seen in a public forum. The statements mirror what folks have been saying, and the word “Host” is used to describe how many teams are already working on it. https://www.nbcnews.com/mach/science/could-re-engineering-earth-help-ease-hurricane-threat-ncna799816 They want the funding to be public. couple key phrases,..” scientists are not debating whether or not humans are driving these planet-altering environmental changes—sufficient evidence has already revealed that we are.” This does not mention the specific cause, as the door to manipulation being the original issue is left open…..” scientists are working on a plan to literally re-engineer the Earth in order to cool it down” ,… no kidding, this is what many have been saying, and they could have mitigated these storms, but instead, let them run and then flood the solution. This is the same tactic for selling anti-virus software, anti-missile missiles, and a “host” of other engineered problems/solutions.

    • David Odell  September 9, 2017 at 5:33 am

      The kicker,.. in the article..From American dude who runs China’s program. ” “It’s probably the most doable in terms of the geoengineering scenarios we have. The amount is compatible with our existing airline traffic.” One place where I have departed from others in theory is the use of additives to existing airline traffic fuel systems. The supply to plane fuel industry is a closed loop. There is no independent testing in the public eye. If you want to sell vacuum cleaners, a nice dust storm sure helps the salespeople knocking on doors.

    • David Odell  September 9, 2017 at 5:37 am

      You don’t need complex science to understand simple give and take. If the atmosphere contains a certain amount of moisture, and someone takes some, then someone goes without. A little heat here, and the wind goes. A little cold there, and the wind calms or pushes and releases the moisture, which is the ultimate product. A nice engineered growing season. Lab coats on crack. They like to say, “Well, the benefits outweigh the harm, so technically we are heroes” We hear that all the time. From places like Generals, and GMO’s.

    • David Odell  September 9, 2017 at 8:38 am

      JS, Review the comment policy regarding links and staying on topic. I already have a wife.

    • JS  September 9, 2017 at 9:13 am

      Yes, lol, I adhere to comment policy.

      By the afternoon, the Nbc geo-engineering article was gone from the front page. Don’t worry though, they still had 2 headlines of the complete explanation of Kate Middleton’s “illness”. Her condition is apparently a serious concern for Americans and we can all finally relax knowing the “prince” made it to school anyway. phew…

  12. JS  September 9, 2017 at 5:22 am

    Quick earthquake education for journalists, who apparently still get confused: Moment Magnitude Scale (MMS) similar to the old Richter scale, simply measures the amount of energy released by a quake. It has nothing to do with the effects of the quake on people and structures. For example, a deep quake and a surface quake of the same MMS can have vastly different effects. For effects, you want to use the Modified Mercalli Intensity scale (MMI), which measures how badly the quake destroys or “eats” things. Moment/Richter scale more useful to scientists, and the Mercalli scale is more useful to emergency management.

    • JS  September 9, 2017 at 5:52 am

      As for Weather, in old days, the scales measured effects, but now (with better instruments) they have been changed to measure speed… Tornados – the original Fujita scale measured wind effects. That has changed. The Enhanced Fujita (EF) measures wind speed. Beaufort scale, ditto. For hurricanes, we have the Saffir-Simpson scale, which has also moved from measuring the effects, to now measuring wind speed. This is crucial. We measure wind speed now, not what the storm “eats”. http://www.numericana.com/answer/scales.htm
      To give an example from my life: My husband’s best friend (and about a dozen other friends) was killed by an F5 tornado in 1965. Dr Ted Fujita arrived, and my husband (who had a pass) was assigned to escort him around the neighborhood. Dr Ted said this was the first time he’d seen asphalt stripped off the highway, and this effect formed part of his F5 classification. But now, the newer EF scale has downgraded that tornado to an EF4.

    • JS  September 9, 2017 at 6:13 am

      Obviously, barometric pressure matters, too. At some point in the future, scales will be revised again, to accommodate newer realities. Right now, thanks to the Hurricane Hunters, we get better and better data. Scientists can debate the scales later. Right now, it’s Emergency Management time. Officials have the duty to warn people ahead of time as best they can. So, for example, Miami Beach’s mayor Philip Levine said of Irma, “This is a nuclear hurricane”. He has every right to say that or anything else that will convince the residents to heed evacuation orders. Likewise, the unofficial use of Cat 6 to describe Irma. It got people in the affected areas to snap to attention and to MOVE, because those who survived Hurricane Andrew, a Cat 5, needed to know that this hurricane is nothing like Andrew. I have a VERY close friend who was there in Homestead right after Andrew, to set up communications, so I know about Andrew. This hurricane is nothing at all like Andrew. That is all for now.

      Yes. Irma is not like Andrew, Andrew was a much smaller hurricane but more intense, it was a Cat 5 when it hit Florida, Irma is already down to a cat 4 and hasn’t even reached Florida yet. All this bullshit and scaremongering is counterproductive, people need real, valid data, not lunatic speculations.

    For anyone wanting evidence of the DVD, evidence of SHEWS, etc. I’m busy, so you are on your own. I will try to give evidence, if and when I have time. But I am busy doing more important things, like dusting off old Excel spreadsheets and paper manuals. I am not interested in proving anything to anyone right now. All I want to do is save lives. And if anyone doesn’t believe me about that by now, they can stuff it. We are out of time.

    • Ian Greenhalgh, Managing Editor  September 9, 2017 at 5:18 am

      There is no evidence so don’t try and pretend different, besides when did you suddenly become an expert? As for trying to save lives, a good starting point would be to pull your head out of your backside and realise that you are doing more harm than good by promulgating the insane theories of a lunatic who continually calls for mass murder of innocent people with no justification other than some fairytales and his own personal hatred of all things Germanic.

      Someone is trying to spread b.s all over this, especially the author. The fact that a few posters here are buying into the evil German DVD theory proves there are people who will fall for anything. Shrimpton’s obvious paranoia and delusional thinking is a sign of either brain damage or a mental illness.
      Scalar weather weapons……… oh boy, here we go……along with the Mickey Mouse stuffed toys that are actually mini nukes, you flat screen is listening to everything you say and your car will tell on you.
      Shrimpton is a fake news wanker. Maybe he should get a job with Breitbart or work with Alex Jones and his British cohort Watson.
      Hurricane Irma is weakening by the hour and has now been downgraded to a tropical storm. The bloviated reports splattering the internet about Irma range from “monster: to “end times”, apocalyptic, yadda, yadda, yadda.
      The dick heads responsible for this scare mongering need to find a job and stop living in their mother’s basement, sucking down Mountain Dew and Cheetos all day.

      Ian,
      Thanks for your blunt analysis. Shrimpton speaks so freely of war, of killing innocents — nothing short of maniacal ramblings. He suggests Irma’s flattening of British Commonwealth Barbuda is a legal act of war against Germany due to a DVD guided WMD (Weather of Mass Destruction?). Even IF, shouldn’t players of a rogue “agency” be held responsible as opposed to an entire nation of innocents — most of which who prob never even heard of this DVD? Of course this line of thought works for nearly EVERY war — perps never suffer while gaining even more wealth & power.

      My own personal heritage is British (Surname means ‘son of John’) with some German ancestry, too…but it’s the likes of Crown agents like Shrimpton that make me ashamed to admit this. Then again, I’ve also blood from the Boston Tea Party and Son of Liberty for a reason 😉

    • Ian Greenhalgh, Managing Editor  September 9, 2017 at 9:43 am

      I find it all deeply embarrassing on three levels – as a VT staff member, as a Briton and as a human being. Shrimpton calls for genocidal bombing every article, usually the Germans but sometimes other countries like Spain. I cannot take seriously a lunatic who writes that Britain did not kill enough Germans in WW2 and described the shameful war crime of the Allied bombing campaign as a ‘glorious slaughter’. He’s a lunatic and hopelessly out of touch with reality.

    • MileHighLife  September 9, 2017 at 9:48 am

      Oh, almost forgot my original thoughts — was detailed by that damned DVD!

      I’m on the SE coast of Flori-duh, due east of Lake Okeechobee and decided not to evac this time (such a PITA) and ride it out as did the majority of ppl in my neck of the woods. This’ll be my 7th hurricane and without doubt this is the most peculiar storm yet — from mass, power, to track — not to mention the other storms lying in wait. Geo-engineered? Who knows, but no doubt TPTB have the tech to do so. Also, to dissipate/lessen these storms — but why do that when it spikes the economy by billion$ while simultaneously spiking fear/loosh of which they feed?

    Great article! I want to state here, that I love the people of the islands of the Caribbean, all of them! In fact, I met my future husband on an island in the Caribbean. So I want to add this: Irma’s attack on the countries of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten was an attack on the countries of France and the Netherlands.It’s that simple. What those countries do about it is up to them, but I have been to that island, which is now wrecked, and I am angry. HuffPo article (dated Sept 6, updated Sept 8) shows photos of St Martin/Sint Maarten wreckage:

    I have a question about this, “Abwehr sabotage of the B-29 program and theft of the blueprints, including the role of Barack Obama’s nominal mother-in-law down in Wichita, Kansas.” I assume you meant nominal grandmother rather than mother-in-law. The fake grandmother was a spy, and conveniently croaked on the very eve of Obama’s election. She was in Kansas. But the mother-in-law is from Chicago.

    what about geomagnetic storms ? there was a huge release on september 8th… it would trigerred the recently mexico earth quake and boosted irma hurricane ?

    In the other hand, anyone has seen the “earth quake lights” ? Many experts give an explanation to these. saying those lights are caused due ion releasing an thus it causes an electric current (cathode tube effect).

    But, if something like SHEWS really exists, could it boost the atmospheric electric field an so the masterminds choosed the exact date of the geomagnetic storm ?

      BTW, i’ve noticed some troubles with this specifc URL , not the whole VT site.

    • JS  September 9, 2017 at 2:55 am

      Let’s hope the problems are due to normal traffic, rather than DDoS! Best answer I can give you, having studied quakes/volcanic eruptions and radio since the 60s: in the old days, quakes would affect the ionosphere and still do. But it also works the other way around.
