Was Cyclone Idai a HAARP event gone awry?

A man clears mud from his retail shop where he used to sell basic commodities to the community on March 23, 2019 in Ngangu Township Chimanimani, Zimbabwe. Due to the robust rains which came with Cyclone Idai most high way roads have been damaged causing problems in accessing aid from nearby cities. According to the U.N. agency at least 259 people were killed in Zimbabwe by Cyclone Idai, and some 217 are still missing, said on Friday. Hundreds of people had been injured and authorities had confirmed that 16,000 households had been displaced, the International Organization said in a statement.

What is in a name? Even those of us who are not proficient in Shona know that Idai means love. So where was the love of this Idai who visited us from the Indian Ocean? I hear the Zim Met Office chose the name. Cyclone Idai.

Can you imagine a cyclone called Love? Whoever thought that was an appropriate name for a cyclone must have been born from the wrong side of his mother’s bed. Surely that person must have no love in his soul. Because a cyclone is a cyclone. There are no friendly cyclones. Yes, some cyclones may be less severe than others, but they all carry destruction in their wake. So please no such lovely names, like Idai, for cyclones again. Let’s keep Love to this side of the Indian Ocean, never to be lavished on unkind visitors from the other side.

In fact, the ferocity of Cyclone Idai has brought memories of something I had long forgotten – HAARP, which stands for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme, the little-known but critically important American weather-control programme hidden in the cold recesses of Alaska.

Designed and built by BAE Advanced Technologies in 1999, it was jointly funded by the US Air Force, US Navy, the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the University of Alaska Fairbanks, but run by the US military between 1999 and 2014.

Remember the name Jim Roderick as you go through this piece. He is an American anti-HAARP activist who says: “The military is incapable of doing pure science. Science is conducted by them for application in weapon systems, for no other reasons.”

So when more eyes and tongues became focused on HAARP and the controversy over its impact on the world’s weather system built up to a crescendo, the US military turned HAARP over to the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in August 2015 to be run as part of the university’s academic courses. But nobody was fooled.

I can bet my bottom dollar that most people around the world have not heard about HAARP, so let me go slowly on it.

If you believe the US military, HAARP is a normal scientific programme, based at Gakona, Alaska, which is “aimed at studying the properties and behaviour of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defence purposes.

“The goal is to understand the physics of the ionosphere, which is constantly responding to influences from the sun. Solar flares can send solar particles racing toward the Earth, occasionally disrupting communications and the electrical grid. If scientists could better understand what happens in the ionosphere, they might be able to mitigate some of these problems.”

But if you believe this, you will also believe that pigs can fly. Remember Jim Roderick’s comment above: “The military is incapable of doing pure science. Science is conducted by them for application in weapon systems, for no other reasons.”

Roderick’s view is supported by another American, Dr Nick Begich, the co-author of the book, Angels Don’t Play This Haarp. He confirms that: “The military has spent a huge amount of time on weather modification as a concept for battle environments. Most people don’t know that the United States signed treaties with the former Soviet Union and 60 other countries in the mid-1970s where we agreed not to use geophysical manipulation as weapons of war. Currently the treaties that allow us to do it, [require us to do it] within the boundaries of our own country. The reality is you can’t contain weather by artificial boundaries.”

It is a frightening view, which, interestingly, is supported by Christopher Hellman, a senior analyst at the US-based Centre for Defence Information. He says: “I don’t know who has the electromagnetic pulse weapons like the ones we are developing. The reality is countries like China and Russia both do have very advanced electromagnetic technology. India might be able to do it too.” But the USA is number one.

As a History Channel documentary attests: “Directed energy is such a powerful technology, it could be used to heat up the ionosphere to turn weather into a weapon of war. Imagine using a flood to destroy a city or a tornado to decimate an approaching army in the desert.”

These are the scary weapons of war that the USA and Russia principally (and possibly other nations too) have been secretly researching since before World War II and have succeeded to amass in the years after the War, to a point where one American expert says the world now has “a whole new way of war”.

So while we were sleeping in Africa, the world was moving from atomic weapons to chemical and biological weapons and now to electromagnetic weapons. And Dear Africa, innocent as Adam, is still sleeping. By the time we wake up, our ionosphere would no longer be ours.

What is the ionosphere?

For those of us who are not scientifically minded, the ionosphere “is the delicate upper layer of the Earth’s atmosphere which ranges from about 50 km (30 miles) to 1 000 km (600 miles) above the surface of the Earth.” It is a sea of electrically-charged particles in the upper atmosphere.

HAARP’s official website admits that the programme conducts experiments using electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to “temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere”.

But some scientists – like Dr Michel Chossudovsky of the University of Ottawa, Canada; and Dr Nick Begich of Alaska (both concerned HAARP researchers, Begich is in fact the son of a US congressman), state that purposefully disturbing the ionosphere could have major and even disastrous consequences. Both men have presented evidence suggesting that ionospheric disturbances can even cause tsunamis and earthquakes.

All this, of course, is denied by the US military. Rather they say HAARP “is the world’s most capable high-power, high frequency (HF) transmitter for the study of the ionosphere. The principal instrument is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a phased array of 180 HF crossed-dipole antennas spread across 33 acres and capable of radiating 3,6 megawatts into the upper atmosphere and ionosphere.

“Transmit frequencies are selectable in the range of 2,7 to 10 MHz, and since the antennas form a sophisticated phased array, the transmitted beam can take many shapes, can be scanned over a wide angular range and multiple beams can be formed. The facility uses 30 transmitter shelters, each with six pairs of 10 kilowatt transmitters, to achieve the 3,6 MW transmit power.”

But though denied by HAARP officials, some respected researchers insist that HAARP’s secret electromagnetic warfare capabilities are designed to achieve the US military’s stated goal of gaining full-spectrum dominance of the world by 2020. That is just next year.

Other scientists have gone as far as saying HAARP can be, and has been, used for not only weather modification, but to cause earthquakes and tsunamis and disrupt global communications systems, and even more.

For a long time, the major aspects of HARRP were kept secret for “national security” reasons. Yet as one Canadian journalist points out, “there is no doubt that HAARP and electromagnetic weapons capable of being used in warfare do exist”.

Weather modification

On 1 August 2010, Global Research, a media group of writers, journalists and activists based in Montreal, Canada, published an in-depth article on the sinister side of HAARP. The piece had a colourful but worrying headline: “HAARP: Secret Weapon Used For Weather Modification, Electromagnetic Warfare”.

Authored by Fred Bucks, the Global Research piece built on three earlier documentaries done on HAARP and electromagnetic warfare by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), the History Channel, and Trutv.com.

Bucks’ piece came with a health warning: “The CBC, History Channel and Trutv.com documentaries quoted in the article can now be viewed. They by no means can be considered as ‘conspiracy theorists’. Moreover, the US Air Force has referred to ‘owning the weather for military use.’”

In the wake of the Cyclone Idai destruction in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, so massive a destruction that the United Nations dared to describe it as the worst weather-related natural disaster to hit the Southern Hemisphere in all history, the US Air Force’s confession – ‘owning the weather for military use’ – has prompted some people to question if Cyclone Idai was caused by a HAARP event gone awry.

These people are not saying Idai was a direct HAARP attack on Mozambique or Zimbabwe, but that Idai could have been a HAARP experiment gone wrong. Incidentally, according to an earlier published schedule on the HAARP website, the “next research campaign” on the HAARP timetable (25-28 March 2019) nearly coincided with Cyclone Idai making landfall in Beira on 14 March.

According to the published schedule, since HAARP was transferred to the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in 2015, “UAF has conducted five research campaigns: (1) February 19-23, 2017; (2) September 21-25, 2017; (3) April 6-14, 2018, (4) July 30-August 1, 2018 and (5) November 29-December 3, 2018. The next research campaign is planned for March 25-28, 2019.”

Idai’s landfall on the night of 14 March was 11 days before HAARP’s “next research campaign” began on 25-28 March. All things being equal, one can safely say that this “research campaign” had nothing to do with Idai.

But, as we all know, all things are not always equal in this world, particularly judging from how the world has been run in the past, and continues to be run, by the puppet masters. So those who are asking us to look at Idai beyond it being a mere “natural disaster” sired by nature from its immense loins deserve to be heard, even if they are making fools of themselves.

Why do I say so? I go back to Fred Bucks well-researched article published by Global Research in 2010.

He quoted the US Air Force as having said on its website (interestingly the original link has since been removed by the US Air Force): “Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes.

“The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather … and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power.”

The quote above was in fact part of a final report published by the Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report, which was posted on the US Air Force website as (http://www.au.af.mil/au/2025). As I mentioned above, the original link has been removed by the US Air Force. The question is: Why is the link removed if, as the US military claims, HAARP is as harmless as eating Sadza?

HAARP admission

HAARP’s own website acknowledges that: “Scientists at HAARP use HF radio transmitters to heat small regions of the ionosphere and observe the effects (including ionospheric heating) … With a facility like HAARP, it is possible to perform an experiment at will to create plasma structures and irregularities, use the ionosphere like an antenna to excite low frequency waves, create weak luminous aurora-like glows and a variety of other experiments.”

Can you imagine “heating small regions of the ionosphere” and “creating plasma structures and irregularities” and still expect the weather to be the same innocent weather Adam and Eve enjoyed in the Garden of Eden?

In the CBC documentary, one scientist says: “It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”

The telling EU document, Fred Bucks points out, came with many bullet points. At bullet point 24, the EU “considers HAARP by virtue of its far-reaching impact on the environment to be a global concern and calls for its legal, ecological and ethical implications to be examined by an international independent body before any further research and testing.”

The EU was worried because New Zealand’s leading newspaper, the New Zealand Herald, had published a piece which revealed that: “Top-secret wartime [World Word II] experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war, it could have played a role as effective as that of the atomic bomb. Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”

So as far back as before World War II started in 1945, the USA and its allies were researching into a Tsunami Bomb. Can you imagine what else they have today, 74 years after the War? And what impact these tsunami and electromagnetic weapons have on the world’s weather and environment? Do they cause cyclones like Idai? Or droughts like the one Zimbabwe is currently going through?

Fred Bucks wants the world to be on the alert. “Of course disasters like [Cyclone Idai],” he writes, “happen regularly on a natural basis, yet if you begin to research, there is some high strangeness around some of them. The evidence is inconclusive, yet with the known and unknown major destructive capabilities of this weapon, serious questions remain .

Next week I shall take readers into the world of secret electromagnetic warfare. So gird your loins
