MARAD.

This is coolbert:

I am sure we can be assured that some persons in important places are being notified about this and we can expect anxiety to follow.

THIS IS NOT AN EXERCISE NORMAL AND ROUTINE WILL BE THE THOUGHT.

Thanks to the trip from Freeper:

"U.S. Orders Large-Scale Turbo Activation Exercise of Ready Reserve Force Ships"

"The U.S. Department of Defense has ordered a large-scale turbo activation of ships in the U.S. Maritime Administration’s (MARAD) Ready Reserve Force fleet. The turbo activation is part of a large-scale activation exercise ordered by the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) on September 16. The activation calls for a total of 28 RRF fleet vessels to transition from reduced operating status to fully crewed and full operating status within 5-days. Activations are commonly followed by immediate sea trials."

OBSERVANT READERS WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN I SAY NOT MORE BE SAID!

This does bear watching. Routine exercise? We shall see.

Unpredictable.

This is coolbert:

Hidden agenda?

DARPA = Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. USA.

From the Internet web site of Soren Dreier and thanks to the tip from Jay.

"DARPA Wants to Remove Hallucinatory 'Side Effects' from Psychedelic Medicines"

"A newly announced research program from DARPA is looking to remove those pesky hallucinatory side effects from novel psychedelic medicines such as MDMA and psilocybin. The program is currently calling out for research proposals investigating innovative drug treatments targeting post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] and depression that can be administered without the 'unpredictable consequences' of current psychedelic medicines."

Drugs as used to treat depression and PTSD in soldiers? That is what this is about?

A hidden agenda does exist here? I am thinking what is euphemistically referred to as the INTERROGATION PROBLEM! [often called MK ULTRA by conspiracy theorists]

That INTERROGATION PROBLEM consisting of: 1. How to get a person while captive to talk when they do not want to talk. 2. How to know the captive is telling the truth when talking.

Decades ago psychedelic drugs such as LSD tested on unwitting subjects and found to be unreliable and unpredictable.

This "research study" has a two-fold purpose? One-above board, overt with good intentions and the other not spoken about in polite company?

Slip me a tab dude! Did you know you're melting?

MH-1A

This is coolbert:

More Russian tooting their horn with pats on the back in an undeserved manner?

From TASS that article the Russian NPP goes online. Nuclear power plant floating.

"World’s first floating NPP starts mooring in Russia’s Chukotka"

"The floating NPP will generate electricity for Pevek, a town with a population of about 4,000, as well as nearby settlements and mining facilities"

"MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. The world’s first-ever floating nuclear power plant "Akademik Lomonosov," which arrived to Russia’s northeasternmost region of Chukotka earlier this week, started mooring at its operating site in the city of Pevek, a regional government spokesperson told TASS on Saturday."

NO! NOT THE FIRST FLOATING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT! FAR FROM IT!

From DECADES ago the U.S. Army floating nuclear barge MH-1A ready to go:

"MH-1A was the first floating nuclear power station . . . this pressurized water reactor built in a converted Liberty ship was part of a series of reactors in the US Army Nuclear Power Program, which aimed to develop small nuclear reactors to generate electrical and space-heating energy primarily at remote, relatively inaccessible sites"


As far as I know MH-1A only on-call, never was activated and sent to the scene of catastrophe or war. Army enlisted personnel nuclear power plant operators at the time [five decades ago] their variable-reenlistment-bonus the highest in the Army. MH-1A now deactivated and dismantled, no longer in existence.

Rays.

This is coolbert:

In most locales interfering with a public transportation vehicle is a very serious offense that warrants hard prison time!

More counter-drone weaponry. From the English tabloid The Sun and thank to same.

"BT could use laser guns to shoot down drones deployed by eco activists, terrorists or pranksters"

[personally I consider individuals interfering in whatever form with a commercial airliner while on approach for landing or during take-off to be in the same category as an arsonist. Such persons are worthy of being shot on sight by law enforcement personnel. My personal opinion!]

"BT [formerly British Telecom] has signed a deal with Australian company DroneShield, which has worked with the British Army. Its DroneGun Tactical weapon shoots rays to take down a target from more than a mile away. BT will also offer clients use of the DroneSentinel, which can track a pilot operating the drone up to three miles away. The tech could have avoided last year’s Gatwick drone saga which cost police up to £900,000 [about $1.2 million USD] — with nobody brought to justice. Eco-activists were arrested last week amid fears of travel disruption at Heathrow".

"Its [DroneShield] DroneGun Tactical weapon shoots rays to take down a target from more than a mile away."

"RAYS will be used to shoot down the drone. RAYS! RAYS of some sort not specified.

BOPE.

This is coolbert:

Blame it on Rio!

In consonance with this prior blog entry some video of BOPE.

Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais (BOPE). "Special Police Operations Battalion" Brazil.

Paramilitary special operations type police unit their responsibility the various favela vicinity Rio De Janeiro.

Paramilitary police of the sort as will be needed to secure the dystopian urban areas of the future. Note the future is NOW in many parts of the world beyond Brazil.



Massive and overwhelming use of force hardly enough to combat the lawlessness and misbehavior of those occupying the dystopian urban area. Force first but pacification must also include follow-up operations normally referred to as civic action [issuing government approved ID, providing fresh water, opening medical clinics]. Prevent the criminal element from returning and once more exerting control over the inhabitants of a favela in the Brazilian case.

Keller USAF.

This is coolbert:

One man against Rome? One man against the Islamic State! Daniel Keller CCT USAF!

"An Air Force Combat Controller (CCT) is an FAA-certified air traffic controller who provides combat support on missions by establishing air control."

"COMBAT CONTROLLER AWARDED AIR FORCE CROSS FOR FIGHT AGAINST 350 ISIS MILITANTS"

Article as seen at the Internet web site Black Rifle Coffee by Kevin Knodell  September 13, 2019

"Today the U.S. Air Force chief of staff presented the Air Force Cross to Technical Sergeant Daniel Keller, a combat controller in the Kentucky Air Guard’s 123rd Special Tactics Squadron, for his actions on the battlefield in Afghanistan during the summer of 2017. The Air Force Cross is the second-highest medal for combat valor an airman can receive, second only to the Medal of Honor."

Air traffic controller special operations USAF on the job and standing tall and well deserving of his award.

THIS IS NOT THE USAF I WAS ACCUSTOMED TO FROM OVER FIFTY YEARS AGO NOW!

1. Special operations USAF [Air Commando units] was a great rarity. Almost strictly limited to pararescue jumpers [PJ] and Ranch Hands what they were called.

2. Enlisted men winning high decoration again almost totally unheard of. PJ maybe but very few of them.

NOW enlisted airmen at the forefront of combat and comporting themselves well! Kudos to all.

Oilfields.

This is coolbert:

Oilfield attack Saudi, combat drone!

From DEBKAfile the latest update the drone attack on the Saudi oil fields.

"The big drone attack on Saudi oil facilities was launched by Iran-backed Yemeni Houthis from… Iraq"

"Early Saturday, Sept. 14, Yemeni Houthi rebels fired at least 10 drones against the Saudi Aramco’s biggest oil facility and second largest oil field from Iraq. Our sources report that they used pro-Iranian Shiite militia bases in southern Iraq, instead of across the Yemen border."

Houthi indeed attacking the Saudi oil fields with considerable damage as a result. Drones as launched from Iraqi territory. with the connivance of Iraqi Shia. That Shia militia undoubtedly beholden to the Iranian.

The noted blogger Spengler considers DEBKAfile to be unreliable under all circumstances. Where ever the drone attack originated let no one doubt this situation dire, potential for severe consequences on a global scale undeniable!!
