Will the REAL "Dr. Grant Gartrel(l)" please stand up?

Joe Quinn
06/06/2004


As it turned out, a few months ago the world didn't end on Thursday and all those trying to predict doomsday could take a breather - for a while anyway - but the guys over at "Psyops Central" like to keep us on our toes. So now that "Planet X" has come and gone (so to speak), it's time to get down to the really serious issues.

The question these days is not, "Will the world end on thursday?" but rather, "Will the NWO begin in June 2004?" Many "UFO buffs" say that Reagan was referring to such an event when he alluded to a "threat from beyond our world," crowing with glee that Reagan's comment was a reference to aliens and government cover-ups. Nowadays, the question is: is it possible he was talking about a slightly different celestial anomaly?

Recently the Konspiracy Korner of the internet has been all abuzz with talk of the world's navies leaving their ports en masse, an event allegedly linked to the "revelations" of a mysterious e-group commentator known only as "Aussie Bloke".

Claiming to be an astronomer with the inside scoop on the large dust cloud and three medium sized meteorites that he declared were on a collision course with the earth, the mysterious "Aussie Bloke" caused quite a stir on the unmoderated Godlikeproductions.com forum where he posted his "groundbreaking" revelations (pun intended).

A major part of Aussie Bloke's "evidence" for the impending global catastrophe was a radio communication intercept called "Snowball" where a lone ham radio operator supposedly recorded an intercept of a U.S. military SSB (Single Side Band) radio transmission on 26 January of this year, referring to a mysterious "countdown" to an unnamed event which (by the countdown) will occur around June 19 or 20 (of this year). Other evidence cited was that much of the US Navy (7 carrier strike groups) are being deployed around the world this summer, with other joint exercises with the navies of other nations occurring at the same time. Certainly, this strikes a lot of people as odd, considering that Bush has cancelled departure time for our overworked, stressed-out troops in Iraq.

USS Harry S. Truman, USS Enterprise Leave Norfolk to Test Navy's Deployment Capabilities

Associated Press Writer

"(AP) - The USS Harry S. Truman sailed Wednesday- and the USS Enterprise left Thursday - in a test of the Navy's ability to have seven of its 12 carriers away from port simultaneously, a major shift from the way carriers have traditionally been used.

The two Norfolk-based carriers are participating in the exercise, dubbed "Summer Pulse 04."

British Navy heads west for 'Aurora'

26.05.04

"The largest commitment of Royal Navy personnel since the liberation of Iraq 12 months ago has been sent west for huge war games in the Atlantic.

Eighteen warships, led by Fleet flagship HMS Invincible, are taking part in Exercise Aurora, stretching along the eastern seaboard of the United States
to the Gulf of Mexico.

Among the ships deployed are helicopter carrier HMS Ocean, assault ship HMS Albion and Type 23 frigates HM ships Marlborough and Sutherland, all sailing in small 'packets' to meet up in Norfolk, Virginia.

Major Russian armed forces exercises to be held in June

May 18, 2004

MOSCOW - The Russian Armed Forces will hold major exercises in June 2004, acting Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov told President Vladimir Putin.

"In June, permanent alert units will be redeployed from one Russian region to some other by Defense Ministry transport planes civilian Il-62 and Il-86 aircraft," Mr. Ivanov said at president's Monday meeting with cabinet members.

"The Russian Navy is planning major independent and international campaigns in the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea in August-September," Mr. Ivanov said.

It seems a little far fetched to us to suggest that the deployment of navy ships is connected with an impending meteorite impact. Summer is a natural time for naval maneuvers. It is far more likely, in our opinion, that the current deployment of large numbers of war ships and the conducting of naval war games is for some other purpose.

It is no secret that many months prior to the official public decision to invade Iraq, the US and UK military and navy had been deployed to the gulf region. To justify the war on Iraq, for which the fleet was already in place, a faked terrorist attack just fortuitously occurred. Any future attack on North Korea would require similar preparations. The "war on terror" must go on after all. Might we expect a new, even more spectacular attack this summer to be used as justification for an attack on the next "terrorist state"? On this point, could it be that the names of the UK and US naval exercises are suggestive of the nature of this attack?

Having recently witnessed the Niburu and Planet X debacle, we here at SotT were initially a little nonplussed by the claims of impending space rock impacts - even if we think that such events have happened in the past and may very well happen again. Nevertheless, our interest was piqued by the fact that the details shared by "Aussie bloke" about the alleged incoming meteorites contained certain specific elements that can be found in our our own publications on the topic from a few years back. [See Laura's Independence Day commentary for a concise wrap-up of the evidence for cyclical cometary impacts.]

We began to smell a rat.

Within a few days the debate had spread far and wide, notably onto the fundamentalist Christian Bushite site and discussion board, Bushcountry.org, pondering whether Jesus would be arriving on the comets themselves or sometime thereafter. To their credit, some members of the Godlike Productions discussion board were skeptical and demanded proof of Aussie Bloke's credentials. Apparently exasperated, Aussie Bloke finally revealed himself as one Dr. Grant Gartrel, (sic) possibly an Australian astronomer, but more likely an Australian authority on caves and rock imaging, and a sometime blueberry farmer. Of course, while a Dr. Grant Gartrell does exist, there is no proof that it was the real Dr Gartrel.

Here is what "he" said:

Aussie Bloke 5/29/2004 5:19 am EDT Re: Aussie Bloke Vol.#3

"Ok...here it is. I AM DR GARTREL. Happy now? As for what I know....I've already told you. You want bloody details....you have them already. You want to know what will happen?...read the above posts. You don't believe me?...YOUR problem! YOU have brains...USE THEM....as I've encouraged you all to do all along!!! READ THE BLOODY SIGNS>>>>>>>but no...some remain flaming BLIND!!!! because they WANT TO. Wont change a thing. I am screwed now...cats out of the bag now...I am who I am....and who gives a ____. IM BLOODY ANGRY!!!!! DO you people have ANY BLOODY IDEA at ALL what it has been like for myself and others who have known about this for BLOODY TWO DECADES!!!!!!!! But no...WELL BUGGER IT ALL!!!!!! For those who have patiently waited for me I am truly sorry for not doing the expected. I told you all weeks ago exactly where and when...you have the details already. The reason? THINK about it!!! IF I had told you all back then that the information WAS in fact THE information you all wanted....the site would have shut down. I had to do it this way...the information has been out for over two weeks now...and the ptb can now do bugger all about it. I have been around them long enough to know how they think and what they would do...now they can do nothing. The times locations and eta of the cloud and objects has already been posted. NOW all you have to do is hope to hell that someone out there copied it. NOW...GET THE WORD OUT!!!! THIS IS LEGIT. FAREWELL TO ALL. SEE YOU IN ETERNITY."

Well, talk about inflammatory!

But just as the discussion was reaching fever pitch, "Aussie Bloke," now calling himself "The Monitors" piped up and spoiled the party by claiming it was all a big hoax, a psychological operation called "Blind Skies", designed simply to test the gullibility of the average, supposedly intelligent, human.

"The Monitors" said:

"You are all to be commended for your exemplary performance these past several weeks. Your unwitting participation in BLIND SKIES has proven most informative, and quite frankly entertaining to many project members. To say that it got out of hand would be an exercise in understatement. We picked GLP precisely because it was out of the way, off the beaten path of usual internet surfers. It suited our needs perfectly. Unmoderated. Anonymous posting. We couldn't have asked for a better testbed unless we had built it ourselves.

Rest assured, Elaine (registered owner of godlike productions) is in no way part of this. She is/was as unaware of the true nature of our experiment as the rest of you.

Our initial hypothesis was straightforward enough: Given the barest minimum of verifiable evidence, ordinary citizens of average to above-average intelligence could be duped into wholesale belief in a catastrophe scenario, provided there was ample corroboration from equally ambiguous, non-credible sources.

We never anticipated the myth spreading beyond the confines of GLP. When the conservative website, Bushcountry, picked up the story, we realized that our initial models had failed miserably to account for the 'word-of-mouth' potential inherent in the internet. At most, we thought perhaps a few other fringe sites might get on board, but it's obvious to us now that it's only a matter of time before a mainstream media outlet syndicates this content, at which point the story will explode into something far beyond our ability to control. [...]

BLIND SKIES began with an idea. The now-legendary SNOWBALL INTERCEPT provided the impetus we had been looking for, the final piece of a puzzle that had been confounding us for the past 14 months. It was the perfect backstory for a disaster scenario that would be easily accepted. Few people have any real knowledge of astronomy. Fewer still know much about the socio-political environment that modern astronomers operate within, and when one of our members suggested using an invented Australian astronomer to further muddy the waters, we knew it was time to release. [...]

BLIND SKIES is not, as many have claimed, a 'PSY OP'. Although we have an affiliation with the government, our mandate was not intended to be any sort of disinformation campaign, mass brainwashing, or subliminal manipulation. We conducted a serious experiment to study the panic reflexes of a virtual community, and quite frankly the experiment ran away from us. Aussie Bloke has now become our Frankenstein's Monster.

We applaud the efforts of so many of you to find the 'facts' behind the fiction. We were impressed by the fact that many people realized their lack of astronomical knowledge, and sought to follow AB's advice and LOOK TO THE SKIES, and INVESTIGATE FOR YOURSELVES! We cannot say that we aren't pleased with our role in inspiring a new renaissance in the field of astronomy.

Near Earth Objects are a threat to our planet, and someday perhaps there will be a scenario that closely matches what we created for BLIND SKIES. However, that day is not today.

We will continue to monitor these forums, along with many others, and we will continue to collect the data regarding your responses. Even the release of this message was factored into the experiment, however as we have already stated, we never anticipated releasing it to such a broad audience.

One interesting result that we had not considered was the various religous and prophetic threads that have spawned as a result of our experiment. One project member commented that it was encouraging to see that faith is not dead in the world.

And so, to you believers, I say be careful in what, and in whom, you place your faith and your trust. And, to you non-believers I say, continue to keep up the fight for truth and reason, because you are logic's last line of defense.

With regards,

The Monitors

And there it sat, amazing revelations of impending cometary disaster, the authors pleading that they never dreamed that the story would have ever reached so far and wide, even onto fundamental Christian, pro Bush sites.

Paradoxically, it was at this point that the whole situation began to make a little more sense, at least to us. We find it hard to believe that the authors were unaware of the fact that sensationalist revelations spread extremely quickly on the internet. As such we deduce that, despite their claims to naivete, the wide dissemination and discussion of "Aussie Bloke's" meteorite impact revelations, and the ultimate ridiculing of the people that believed them, was the real goal.

There is also the comment above by the authors that, "it's only a matter of time before a mainstream media outlet syndicates this content, at which point the story will explode into something far beyond our ability to control."

Indeed it is true that, if this story were to be reported by the mainstream media, complete with the idea that the whole thing was a hoax, any future comments by ANY website that suggest the reality of the possibility of a meteorite impact would immediately be dismissed as simply more "hoaxery".

On the other hand, the authors themselves state that they are pleased that the more religious-minded latched onto the threat of a meteorite impact to bury their heads further in religious dogma. Coincidence? As much as the authors would like us to think so, we think not.

But the story was not ready to die just yet. Not wanting to bore the seasoned internet conspiracy theorist with a simple fear-based reverse psychology move, another member of the Godlike Productions message board then claimed that the above message from the Monitors was the real hoax and that he (anonymous poster) was the one who was behind it, and that the original message from Aussie Bloke was real!

The Monitors Revealed 6/3/2004 10:08 am EDT Re: GLP was an "Aussie Bloke" experiment! so says the Monitors

I have no doubt that this message will be cross-posted, copied, pasted, and spread just as far and wide as my original "Monitors" message.

In less than 24 hours, you have all embraced an entirely fake post that offered NO corroborative evidence and NO verifiable proof of anything.

Like many of you, I was on the fence regarding AB, N&W, and even Lyros to some extent. Part of me remains convinced that an intelligent person, or group, can easily construct a plausible scenario that many people will believe in, simply because it SOUNDS good.

I could have left "The Monitors" (which, by the way, was taken from an old Space: Above and Beyond episode, for those of you who remember that awesome TV show), but I'm really not interested in sending people into mental institutions or home foreclosure, because they lost their minds over something they read on the internet.

This should clearly illustrate to you all that you NEED to improve your BS filters when you read something on the net. There are organized groups operating even now that will generate a hoax just for the bragging rights of doing it. If AB/N&W is a hoax, they are right now patting themselves on the backs and congratulating each other.

Honestly, I don't know if it's real, if any of it's real, but I had to throw "The Monitors" into the mix to prove a point that MANY other posters have been shouting at you ever since this began.

It took me all of 15 minutes to write the "Monitors" message. If someone REALLY wanted to do their homework, ask some questions, and take some notes, they could create a story that most of us would be hard-pressed to refute.

Sure, I upset a lot of people, but you guys needed a wake up call. STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE INTERNET. Yes, mainstream media often misses or intentionally buries news items, and sites like GLP can be valuable resources in finding news that falls through the holes, but stories like AB's go beyond all that, and delve deeply into the realm of complete and utter internet hoax.

Just look at what the reactions to my message were. Some people refused to believe that AB (aussie bloke) could be anything but the gospel. Some people realized it was a hastily prepared scam. Some people saw it as a logical explanation that reinforced something they'd been thinking all along.

In short, your reactions to my post were very much in line with your reactions to AB and the like.

I know you'll all require proof that "The Monitors" message is a fake, and that I'm the one who did it. So, here goes.

BLIND SKIES is the proof - totally made it up on the spot, because it sounded good. AB kept saying look to the skies, but so many people weren't seeing anything, so it sounded good. I googled it myself, and was surprised that the first hit actually had to do with asteroids. I laughed a little, but then included that part about COINCIDENCE as a result of my google experience. I picked it out of the blue, people, and it "hit" when searched on!

When I 'quoted' AB and said LOOK TO THE SKIES and INVESTIGATE FOR YOURSELF, I fully expected you to do web searches on BLIND SKIES, and quickly learn that it probably doesn't exist, never has, never will. I was a little surprised that the anagram hunters didn't make an appearance (maybe they did and I missed it). Before I posted, I checked to make sure there'd be no "hits" on anagrams, and the closest I saw that you MIGHT latch onto was DISIN BS ELK.

I insinuated government "affiliation" ("The Monitors" never stated they WERE the government, yet many inferred that), because I knew that would add even more credibility. Many of you are convinced that TPTB are untrustworthy (and perhaps they are), so by adding that element, I insured that those disaffected people would likely get on board with my message. [...]

As you can imagine, at this stage most people did not know what to believe. Yet again, the favored psyops technique of "good cop - bad cop" is used, with the public first wound up and then placated, leaving them sure of nothing and open to anything.

Interestingly, the messages from "Aussie Bloke", "The Monitors" and the above unidentified individual, all stressed the same point - that the conspiracy minded internet communities are extremely gullible and very easily duped. They reiterated that the public can be made to believe anything, and therefore they should believe nothing, or believe everything, either way, the message is that they will never know for sure what is happening.

As a final dig, the above unnamed author advised subscribers to read the text below. In doing so, he perhaps revealed a core aspect of the message he wanted to get across.

"In an introductory essay, Peter Knight, editor of the 2002 collection Conspiracy Nation: The Politics of Paranoia in Postwar America, attributes modern conspiracism to "the pervading sense of uncontrollable forces taking over our lives, our minds, and even our bodies." He writes that "conspiracy thinking has become not so much the sign of a crackpot delusion as part of an everyday struggle to make sense of a rapidly changing world." In effect, individuals are losing their sense of agency in a period of political chaos and technological overload, compulsive consumerism and fear of the future, experiencing a loss of self and a sense of interchangeability with other digitized and horrifically surveilled humans, unable to get the big picture into focus and hence fixating on an idea of the world itself as a vast, impenetrable conspiracy."

So there it is. Conspiracy theorists are no longer to be ridiculed but pitied; they are merely suffering from the pressures of the modern world and social and technological development.

If we consider the underlying effect of the entire "Aussie Bloke" episode and the lessons that may have been learned by the average seeker on the net, it is that reports of anything of a "conspiratorial nature," cannot be trusted - period. Additionally, any future predictions of warnings of possible impending meteorite impacts and cataclysms will surely be considered with more skepticism than before, even by those more inclined to believe that they may contain an element of truth.

Yet it seems that there is always more than one agenda served by psychological operations of this type. We cannot discount the fact that all of this is happening at a time when there has been a marked increased in ACTUAL meteorite sightings and impacts - well over a dozen in the past year alone.

It also provides much needed distraction for the Bush gang from the worrying reports that Bush is a man on the edge of sanity worrying that he will be tried for War Crimes, with the Neocons feeling more and more that, at this point, they have nothing to lose. It is certainly strange that the conservative, Bush supporting, fundie Bushcountry.org website would publish something like the "Aussie Bloke" rant. As Laura wrote in COINTELPRO and the Speed of Light :

The first thing we want to think about is the fact that the word "conspiracy" evokes such a strong reaction in all of us: nobody wants to be branded as a "conspiracy thinker." It just isn't "acceptable." It's "un-scientific" or it's evidence of mental instability. Right? That's what you are thinking, isn't it?

In fact, I bet that the very reading of the word even produces certain physiological reactions: a slight acceleration of the heartbeat, and perhaps a quick glance around to make sure that no one was watching while you simply read the word silently.

Have you ever asked yourself WHY the word evokes such an instantaneous emotional reaction? Have you ever wondered why it stimulates such a strong "recoil?" After all, it is only a word. It only describes the idea of people in "high places" thinking about things and doing things that manipulate other people to produce benefits for themselves.

Richard M. Dolan studied at Alfred University and Oxford University before completing his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester, where he was a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship. Dolan studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy. He has written about "conspiracy" in the following way:

The very label [conspiracy] serves as an automatic dismissal, as though no one ever acts in secret. Let us bring some perspective and common sense to this issue.

The United States comprises large organizations - corporations, bureaucracies, "interest groups," and the like - which are conspiratorial by nature. That is, they are hierarchical, their important decisions are made in secret by a few key decision-makers, and they are not above lying about their activities. Such is the nature of organizational behavior. "Conspiracy," in this key sense, is a way of life around the globe.

Within the world's military and intelligence apparatuses, this tendency is magnified to the greatest extreme. During the 1940s, [...] the military and its scientists developed the world's most awesome weapons in complete secrecy... [...]

Anyone who has lived in a repressive society knows that official manipulation of the truth occurs daily. But societies have their many and their few. In all times and all places, it is the few who rule, and the few who exert dominant influence over what we may call official culture. - All elites take care to manipulate public information to maintain existing structures of power. It's an old game.

America is nominally a republic and free society, but in reality an empire and oligarchy, vaguely aware of its own oppression, within and without. I have used the term "national security state" to describe its structures of power. It is a convenient way to express the military and intelligence communities, as well as the worlds that feed upon them, such as defense contractors and other underground, nebulous entities. Its fundamental traits are secrecy, wealth, independence, power, and duplicity.

Nearly everything of significance undertaken by America's military and intelligence community in the past half-century has occured in secrecy. The undertaking to build an atomic weapon, better known as the Manhattan Project, remains the great model for all subsequent activities. For more than two years, not a single member of Congress even knew about it although its final cost exceeded two billion dollars.

During and after the Second World War, other important projects, such as the development of biological weapons, the importation of Nazi scientists, terminal mind-control experiments, nationwide interception of mail and cable transmissions of an unwitting populace, infiltration of the media and universities, secret coups, secret wars, and assassinations all took place far removed not only from the American public, but from most members of Congress and a few presidents. Indeed, several of the most powerful intelligence agencies were themselves established in secrecy, unknown by the public or Congress for many years.

Since the 1940s, the US Defense and Intelligence establishment has had more money at its disposal than most nations. In addition to official dollars, much of the money is undocumented. From its beginning, the CIA was engaged in a variety of off-the-record "business" activities that generated large sums of cash. The connections of the CIA with global organized crime (and thus de facto with the international narcotics trade) has been well established and documented for many years. - Much of the original money to run the American intelligence community came from very wealthy and established American families, who have long maintained an interest in funding national security operations important to their interests.

In theory, civilian oversight exists over the US national security establishment. The president is the military commander-in-chief. Congress has official oversight over the CIA. The FBI must answer to the Justice Department. In practice, little of this applies. One reason has to do with secrecy. [...]

A chilling example of such independence occurred during the 1950s, when President Eisenhower effectively lost control of the US nuclear arsenal. The situation deteriorated so much that during his final two years in office, Eisenhower asked repeatedly for an audience with the head of Strategic Air Command to learn what America's nuclear retaliatory plan was. What he finally learned in 1960, his final year in office, horrified him: half of the Northern Hemisphere would be obliterated.

If a revered military hero such as Eisenhower could not control America's nuclear arsenal, nor get a straight answer from the Pentagon, how on earth could Presidents Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, or Nixon regarding comparable matters?

Secrecy, wealth and independence add up to power. Through the years, the national security state has gained access to the wrorld's most sophisticated technology sealed off millions of acres of land from public access or scrutiny, acquired unlimited snooping ability within US borders and beyond, conducted overt or clandestine actions against other nations, and prosecuted wars without serious media scrutiny. Domestically, it maintains influence over elected officials and communities hoping for some of the billions of defense dollars. [including scientists, universities, etc.]

Deception is the key element of warfare, and when winning is all that matters, the conventional morality held by ordinary people becomes an impediment. When taken together, the examples of official duplicity form a nearly single totality. They include such choice morsels as the phony war crisis of 1948, the fabricated missile gap claimed by the air force during the 1950s, the carefully managed events leading to the Gulf of Tonkin resolution... [...]

The secrecy stems from a pervasive and fundamental element of life in our world, that those who are at the top of the heap will always take whatever steps are necessary to maintain the status quo.

[S]keptics often ask, "Do you really think the government could hide [anything] for so long?" The question itself reflects ignorance of the reality that secrecy is a way of life in the National Security State. Actually though, the answer is yes, and no.

Yes, in that cover-ups are standard operating procedure, frequently unknown to the public for decades, becoming public knowledge by a mere roll of the dice. But also no, in that ... information has leaked out from the very beginning. It is impossible to shut the lid completely. The key lies in neutralizing and discrediting unwelcomed information, sometimes through official denial, other times through proxies in the media.

[E]vidence [of conspiracy] derived from a grass roots level is unlikely to survive its inevitable conflict with official culture. And acknowledgement about the reality of [conspiracies] will only occur when the official culture deems it worthwhile or necessary to make it. Don't hold your breath.

This is a widespread phenomenon affecting many people, generating high levels of interest, taking place in near-complete secrecy, for purposes unknown, by agencies unknown, with access to incredible resources and technology. A sobering thought and cause for reflection. [Richard Dolan]

Consider this: even if Dolan is writing specifically about America, in a world dominated by the United States, it must be considered that pressures are applied elsewhere from within this "national security state" to comply with the demands of the US.

Now, think about the word "conspiracy" one more time and allow me to emphasize the key point: From a historical point of view, the ONLY reality is that of conspiracy. Secrecy, wealth and independence add up to power. ...Deception is the key element of warfare, (the tool of power elites), and when winning is all that matters, the conventional morality held by ordinary people becomes an impediment. Secrecy stems from a pervasive and fundamental element of life in our world, that those who are at the top of the heap will always take whatever steps are necessary to maintain the status quo.

And maintaining the "status quo" in science HAS to be one of the main objectives of the Power Elite.

And how do they do that? By "official culture."

And official culture, understood this way, from the perspective of elite groups wishing to maintain the status quo of their power, means only one thing: COINTELPRO. And here we do not mean the specific FBI program, but the concept of the program, and the likelihood that this has been the mode of controlling human beings for possibly millennia. Certainly, Machiavelli outlined the principles a very long time ago and little has changed since.

The fact is, I like to call it "Cosmic COINTELPRO" to suggest that it is almost a mechanical system that operates based on the psychological nature of human beings, most of whom LIKE to live in denial. After all, "if ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise."

And so, we come to the idea bushcountry.org may well be a front (whether unwitting or not) for the agenda of the Bush reich - the current "Conspirators" in charge.

Of course, none of the above answers the question as to the identities of the people behind this most recent psyop. Without doubt there is a hierarchy involved, with the names at the top of the pyramid seldom if ever revealed. But there have been many cases were agents and "New Age" grifters and conmen have been exposed. We ourselves have experienced ongoing attacks from such disinformation artists. In this case however, other than the fundie Bushcountry.org site, only one other alternative website seized upon the doomsday element of the story and ran with it:

Dr Gartrell (Aussie Bloke) Steps Forward To Confirm His Predictions, Testified To Australian Parliament

THE ENTIRE PLANET MAY BE IN DEEP TROUBLE: a Government Coverup is Exposed

by Will Anderson "Blueotter"
www.prophecykeepers.com

June 3, 2004 Cabool, MO

A senior Australian Physicist/Astronomer began revealing -- first anonymously and now publicly -- that his government Physics/Astronomy team had discovered -- some 20 years ago -- that a HUGE Outer Space debris cloud/field is headed toward us and will arrive on June 8/9, 2004 -- along with 3 heavy objects that they have believed for 10 years will most certainly strike the earth causing massive upheavals... *unless* they miss us by a VERY close margin. Dr Gartrell said only time will tell.

Many N.E.O. or "Near Earth Objects" have been discovered lately -- but announced in the media only AFTER they passed our planet within 250,000 miles or so!

Dr. Gartrell's testimony has been both broad and deep. It is all on our website at www.prophecykeepers.com as he has requested publicly that it be broadcasted far and wide.

Dr. Gartrell now feels he is telling us all of this information at the risk of his own life, because he was muzzled many years ago by his government -- and has been threatened -- but he is at peace with God and resigned to what he feels is our fate now that he has visited his family between 5/15 and 5/29/2004.

He has now been further identified by www.Prophecykeepers.com Radio as "Dr. Grant Gartrell" of Mount Compass, South Australia -- facts which can be easily verified by anyone with a search engine.

Dr. Gartrell is either a bonafide physicist, or he lied to the South Australian Parliament. It is as simple as that. He has in the past publicly testified in front of the South Australian Parliament and has given his name and address... and has published scientific papers along with other scientists on the subject of possibly threatening outer space objects. He was testifying concerning caves, as he is an amateur cave explorer who has made important discoveries of Pliestocene era dinosaur bones... and that information is also on the Internet for all to see.

He began revealing his disturbing facts anonymously on 4/29/04, and as promised on 5/15/04 that he would reveal his identity within two weeks -- to give him time for him to visit family -- and on 5/29/04 he revealed his surname as "Dr. Gartrell."

Prophecykeepers.com Radio did some simple research and discovered his actual full name, address, and phone number... and that he does operate a "pick-your-own" Blueberry farm nowadays where he also manufactures wine. He originally claimed his full history was freely available if anyone dug deep enough... and we apparently did... and it was available -- just as he claimed.

IF you *fully* read Dr. Grant's Gartrell's LONG testimony, suddenly it SHOULD dawn on you, as it did on Prophecykeepers.com, that SOMETHING HUGE OF EARTH SHATTERING PROPORTIONS IS HAPPENENING AND THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD OBVIOUSLY KNOW ABOUT IT!

Notice the headline and then notice the text in red which demonstrates how certain "facts" were stitched together out of context to create an illusion. We are constantly reminded that for as many people who honestly seek to know the truth, there is at least one that seeks to twist and manipulate that truth, either for their own ends or for the objectives of their controllers, or both. Apart from the fact that, in the above, Will Anderson makes no effort to analyse the story or inform his readers of the controversy surrounding the "revelations" of "Dr. Gartrel", he provides no evidence for his key claim that Dr. Gartrel has testified before the Australian parliament about the imminent meteorite threat.

What is even more interesting is the clever way he has twisted this idea into his title - making it sound like Gartrel only yesterday testified before the Australian parliament about the incoming objects. At this point, given this clever twist in the presentation of the story, given Anderson's obvious writing skills, we might even suspect that Will Anderson himself is behind the entire hoax.

The fact is, the only testimony of a "Dr. Gartrell" (note: with 2 "Ls") to the south Australian parliament we could find, was on the subject of cave imaging technology.

And so, let us ask just a few questions about Will Anderson.

Public Advisory issued by comanchelodge.com.

Please feel free to distribute!

This warning is issued for the public to BEWARE of the individual known as William Scott Anderson, a resident of Cabool Missouri.

This advisory is published for the protection of the general public and to advise our visitors that this individual over a period of several years has operated numerous monetary scams conducted in the name of American Indian People.

Scott Anderson is the current spokesperson for a false group operating out of Deltona Florida using the name of Indian Creek Band of Chickamauga Cherokee. Anderson has in fact been known for the solicitation of donations from the public on behalf of a Convicted Sex Criminal who is a Registered Sex Offender in the State of Missouri, along with several other incidents of exploitation affecting American Indian People.

William Scott Anderson, otherwise known as Blue Otter, began soliciting donations over the Internet in 2001 for the legal defense of what he was claiming was an issue of Religious Persecution concerning the violation of American Indian civil rights.

The incident Mr. Anderson claimed was an American Indian Issue, actually took place during the execution of a federal search warrant conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) in connection with an investigation by local law enforcement over the failure of an associate of Mr. Anderson to register in his community, as is required by federal law in connection with a previous 1990 conviction for a sexual offense concerning a minor.

caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/da...22265p.pdf

Mr. Anderson was present during this raid where over 17 illegal firearms were confiscated by authorities that was in the possesion of the individual in question. This then led to a Grand Jury Indictment concerning the illegal possession of these firearms by the convicted sex offender to which the felon then later entered a plea of guilty as charged.

During the time prior to the entered plea of guilty by the defendant, William Scott Anderson was in fact soliciting money donations online for the Legal Aid of this convicted sex criminal under the guise of a Cherokee American Indian cause while making the claim that the ATF raid was actually a result of religious persecution of American Indian people.

Federal court documents concerning the case prove that Mr. Andersons' online solicitations for money under the guise of an American Indian cause were entirely false as this was never a case that involved the Bureau of Indian Affairs, but rather as a direct result of illegal firearms possession by a convicted sex felon which is a violation of federal law.

William Scott Anderson has also falsely claimed to be a Cherokee Indian Chief in addition to his claims to being a Cherokee Medicine Man descended from Pocahontas (who he also claims was Cherokee), and he is currently operating yet another monetary scam where he solicits donations online via paypal under the guise of yet another Fake Cherokee Indian Tribe that he claims is located in Florida.

Please be advised that this individual was officially denounced by the Cherokee Nation in the year 2000 for his heinous abuse of the free e-mail system that the Cherokee Nation generously offered to the public.

Anderson was abusing their free e-mail system to make his false claims. This was quickly discovered, which then led to his account being deleted by Cherokee Nation authorities.

Anderson has claimed for several years to be a medicine man where he sold injections of Tahitian Noni Juice while claiming his concoction heals American Indian people of Diabetes.

Please avoid this individual and the groups he is associated with, and please be advised of Mr. Anderson's connection to numerous deplorable exploitations of the American Indian People over a period of several years.

If you have been a victim of fraud concerning the scams operated by this individual named William Scott Anderson, alias Blue Otter, AKA Runningbull, AKA Strongeagle, Please contact the Bureau of Indian Affairs to file a report!

Interesting history, eh?

Of particular note is Mr Anderson's cohort having to deal with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms (BATF), the same US government department that was involved in the WACO massacre and which has close connections with so called "cult deprogrammers" like Rick Ross and our own personal COINTELPRO agent.

From our own experiences with the above referenced charismatic, and possibly psychopathic, individual, we recognize the "taste" of people like Mr Anderson. We suspect that, in the case of many such types, criminal charges are often used as a bartering tool by CoIntelPro agencies. Essentially, they are afforded some level of immunity from the law in exchange for their services in spreading disinformation and lies, in whatever way is deemed necessary. The internet is their "happy hunting ground".

At the time of writing one of our research staff received a response to our inquiry from the real Dr Grant Gartrell in Australia who wrote:

Thank you for your inquiry and your scepticism. I don't consider that any apology is needed for your contacting me.

I have just returned home from a week interstate caving to find my answering machine full and more than 60 emails awaiting me. It has taken me most of the night to find out why.

Thanks for the kind comments about my forays into the parliamentary arena. I would like to think that I wasn't wasting my time then.

What appears below is what I have sent to a couple of places where this stuff seems to be breeding.

Further to that, I have never made any submissions to any parliamentary bodies on impact threats or any other aspects of cometary debris.

"Several people have recently contacted me, and thus have drawn my attention to claims being made in my name concerning the prediction of imminent cataclysmic cometary impacts.

"Please be advised that I have no knowledge of the identity of the person "Aussie Bloke" who claims to be me.

"I am very displeased to be caught up in a hoax in this way, and while I do not regard myself as a vindictive person, I do not think that I would be too upset at this moment if a small "personal sized" heavenly body fell out of the sky and flattened "Aussie Bloke", or at least knocked some integrity into him.

"I am one of the authors of an article on meteors which appeared in the Australian Journal of Physics in 1975, but, although still interested in it, have not worked actively in that field much since that time. I am currently a berry grower with a serious interest in cave exploration, cave science and cave tourism development and management, as well as the landcare movement and the promotion of sustainable agriculture and horticulture.

"There are a number of claims made by "Aussie Bloke" in his hi-jacking of my persona that are plainly incorrect and make it quite clear that he does not know me as well as he would like others to believe.

"I would like to state categorically that while I have no doubt that over geologically significant periods of time there have been significant impacts on earth by space debris, and that there is no reason to suppose that similar events will not occur from time to time in the future, I have no knowledge whatsoever of any such immediate or imminent threat, or any related conspiracy. I have never even met Chicken Little, and I have already started planning travel arrangements for conferences I expect to attend in several years time."

Kind regards,

Grant Gartrell

So there you have it - yet all this proves is that the poster on "Godlike Productions" was not Dr Gartrell, and those behind this little operation stated that themselves.

The real lesson to be learned here is that this was a CoIntelPro operation, designed to manipulate the very malleable minds of the public in such a way as to make it more difficult for the honest seeker to separate the truth from the lies. Yet it is important to note that this knowledge itself affords us some protection from being too easily duped by the next Psyops scam.

So is anything of significance going to happen this summer?

Without doubt. With George Bush and the Neocons balancing on a tightrope so as not to fall into the pit of a War Crimes trial, things couldn't be more interesting. But we can say with some degree of certainty that, while they remain a distinct threat, there will be no major meteorite impacts, not yet anyway. That is not to say that this summer and the rest of this year will be smooth sailing. We have understood for quite some time that, with each passing day, our planet is being pushed closer and closer to utter destruction. As this happens, "the powers that be" will go to increasingly extreme lengths to ensure that the population remains confused and distracted from what is really going on.

The task that is before all of is is to unravel the lies and disinformation that make up the reality that the PTB would have us believe. So instead of heading for the hills and stocking up on beef jerky, we suggest that we all keep watching and reading the Signs and using our heads in an attempt to see and understand the deeper reality that is all around us and to which we all contribute by what we SEE.
