DARPA NWO Goodies, Pre-European American Mines and Fishbowl Space Gazing

Archaeology enthusiasts from around the world are gathering in Marquette this weekend to discuss the ancient civilizations of America.

The fourth annual Ancient American Preservation Society Conference on Ancient America began Friday and ends Sunday. Judy Johnson, the 2008 conference chairwoman, said the event will raise funds for the purchase of one of the largest known pieces of float copper discovered in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

“It’s over 99 percent pure copper,” Johnson said of the large metal slab left in the area by a glacier. It “is in danger of being acquired by industry for melting down, for smelting, for industrial purposes.”

The society would like to preserve the float copper as a geological specimen and has already invested $10,000 toward securing it, she said.

However, Johnson said the group has only two years in which to raise the additional $340,000 needed to purchase the more than 50-ton slab.

Johnson and others involved with the AAPS believe the copper found in the Upper Peninsula drew Europeans and Asians to the continent before Columbus visited the Americas.

This is something very interesting, America being exploited for resources, especially copper which was the carbon fiber composite of its day.

That in of itself isn’t odd, it’s the 2000 B.C. date that gets to people!

Archeologists Discuss Ancient America


The Pentagon wants to be able to peer inside your apartment building — picking out where all the major rooms, stairways, and dens of evil-doers are.

The U.S. military is getting better and better at spotting its enemies, when they’re roaming around the streets. But once those foes duck into houses, they become a whole lot harder to spot. That’s why Darpa, the Defense Department’s way-out research arm, is looking to develop a suite of tools for “external sensing deep inside buildings.” The ultimate goal of this Harnessing Infrastructure for Building Reconnaissance (HIBR) project: “reverse the adversaries’ advantage of urban familiarity and sanctuary and provide U.S. Forces with complete above- and below-ground awareness.”

By the end of the project, Darpa wants a set of technologies that can see into a 10-story building with a two-level basement in a “high-density urban block” — and produce a kind of digital blueprint of the place. Using sensors mounted on backpacks, vehicles, or aircraft, the HIBR gear would, hopefully, be able to pick out every room, wall, stairway, and basement in the building — as well as all of the “electrical, plumbing, and installation systems.”

Darpa doesn’t come out and say it openly.  But it appears that the agency wants these HIBR gadgets to be able to track the people inside these buildings, as well. Why else would these sensors be required to “provide real-time updates” once U.S. troops enter the building? Perhaps there’s more about the people-spotting tech, in the “classified appendix” to HIBR’s request for proposals.

I discovered this site over the weekend and does this guy do his research!

If you want to get all kinds of skinny on dirty NWO crap, this is a must see site.

DARPA Wants To See Thru Your Walls And Into Your House


The state of New Mexico hopes to collaborate with two firms to create suborbital vehicles for space tourists. This illustration is one concept for the ship, which will afford passengers a 360° view of space. Armadillo Aerospace plans to build an initial prototype of the vehicle in 2009 and is aiming for crewed suborbital flights in 2010. The reusable vehicles will take off vertically from Spaceport America near Las Cruces, New Mexico. The ships can take two passengers at a time, and tickets will cost an estimated $100,000.

Pretty wild, though I would be spooked by the knowledge that there’s only a few millimeters of film separating me from space.

I wonder what the insurance cost would be for Armadillo Aerospace?

Did I hear someone mention “release forms?”

  1. Hi dad2059…

    I find the Keweenaw, Upper Michigan Peninsula copper nugget article interesting.

    This is an example of greedy “chimps” in action! Copper had risen to almost $4.00 a pound during the synthetic housing boom, but now copper is priced at $1.78 lb and is headed even lower due to the housing bust.

    So a 50 ton 99 percent copper specimen in terms of it’s metal content woud be nominally $178,000 dollars and not the almost $400,000 market value that no doubt caused the greedy owners of the specimen to want to melt the piece. I noticed they want $340,000 for the nugget which at this time is grossly overpriced in terms of its melt content. This pricing is based on past market quotes for copper as a commodity.

    This nugget is actually “priceless” due to its purity, size and the history behind the specimen and belongs in the Smithsonian rather than being melted down or surely ensconced in a state sponsored museum. The organization or entity that owns the nugget should be ashamed of themselves wanting to sell this rare specimen in a sinking copper market. Hopefully they are backing off on the idea.

    I’m glad the entire housing market has gone bust and we now are sinking into a depression. Hopefully copper will go so low that it will be cheaper to use in our pennies because the steel ones that are simply plated will cost more than the copper version… :))

    Now for an example of “Connections” ….with my spin.

    Just think if they had melted this specimen down, the copper would have ended up as wiring and pipe in homes sold to subprime “ninja” class buyers; ie., no incomes, no jobs, no assets only to be repossessed, so then “repo miners” , mostly “meth heads” could steal the copper from the abandoned repossessed properties; then they sell the stolen copper to the scrap dealer little realizing that the copper was once part of one of the largest specimens of float copper ever discovered.

    Yep, this is a prime example of “planet of the chimps” at its finest; ie., the vaunted American “marketplace” in action…no ?! : |

  2. I find the historical aspect of the find significant, simply because of the antiquity of the find.

    I’ll leave the economics of it to you and the Ignorance Is Futile guy.

    It occurs to me however that the “strip-mining” of copper wiring from these abandoned foreclosed homes is already happening. It would seem to me that copper wiring is worth more than the standard cheaper aluminum wiring.

    The powers that be are keeping the price of metals artificially low, but I can’t believe they can keep that charade going for too much longer. 8)
