WASHINGTON. Something odd is happening here on planet earth. It concerns the National Solar Observatory at Sunspot, New Mexico, which is, coincidentally, close to Alamogordo. That’s where the Fat Man atomic device was tested in July of 1945. The following month, a similar weapon destroyed the Japanese city of Nagasaki, killing around 40,000 people and injuring 60,000 more.
A “security issue” at the Sunspot solar observatory
The Albuquerque New Mexico Journal reported that the Sunspot Observatory is “addressing a security issue,” noting its personnel would “temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure.” The observatory closed last Thursday.
The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy added, “We have no further comment at this time.”
Otero County Sheriff Benny House told the media the FBI was on hand. But House refused to disclose the reason behind the observatory’s closure.
Needless to say, the sudden evacuation of the Sunspot observatory, the lack of information concerning the “security issue” and the FBI’s involvement quickly triggered a good deal of speculation.
Theories for the closure of Sunspot
Some believe the observatory staff contacted extraterrestrials. They think the government subsequently whisked them away to prevent information leaking out to the public. So the story goes, the government then escorted facility staffers to an undisclosed secure location for questioning by – who else – men in black.
Yet others speculate that the solar astronomers made a disturbing discovery regarding the internal workings of the sun and its potentially lethal impact on Earth.
Still others maintain the observatory detected a massive solar flare was heading our way. Charged solar particles can fry the circuitry of orbiting satellites. Related solar storms capable of causing widespread damage to earth’s electrical grid are known as Carrington Events.
But the most plausible theory of why the Sunspot observatory closed ventures that Chinese hackers breached the observatory’s antennae array and used it to monitor the US weapons testing range at nearby White Sands.
Bill Clinton, the DNC and Chinese collusion
And that reminds me of Peter Lee. He was a Chinese-born physicist who pleaded guilty in 1997 to passing American secrets to China. He worked, coincidentally, in New Mexico’s Los Alamos National Laboratory. Subsequently, he passed along plans for joint US and British microwave technology that enabled the tracking of nuclear submarines.
For his crimes, Lee served “one year in a community corrections facility, three years of probation, 3,000 hours of community service, and a $20,000 fine.” Counterintelligence News and Developments reported the sentence.
Republican Senator Arlen Specter criticized President Bill Clinton’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to the Washington Post. Specter said the nation’s allegedly chief law enforcement agency was far too lenient on Lee for crimes that clearly “merited the death penalty.”
Clinton / China collusion
Back in 1998, the New York Times still resembled a real newspaper. During that period, it had not yet become the shameless propaganda organ for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) that it is today. That’s why, in 1998, the NYT noted certain financial irregularities regarding Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign.
What follows is excerpted from a 1998 story headlined “Al Gore and the Temple of Cash”:
“It took more than a year of prodding to get the Justice Department interested in how the White House and the Democratic National Committee financed the 1996 [Clinton presidential] campaign, but the indictments are flowing now. Maria Hsia [a Democratic fundraiser] is charged with laundering over $55,000 from the Buddhist temple luncheon for Vice President Al Gore on April 29, 1996.”
That’s right. Al Gore was the bagman for illicit campaign contributions from China as facilitated by another Chinese operative, who just happened to be an official at the DNC, John Huang. The incident occurred at the His Lai Temple in Hacienda Heights, California.
The “Year of the Rat” and beyond: Real China collusion conspiracy vanishes down the memory hole
After Democrats secured a second term for Clinton, the DNC sheepishly returned more than $2.8 million to Johnny Huang’s pals in Beijing.
The Times noted that Maria Hsia and…
“… people with clear [Clinton] Administration ties are being indicted at a smart clip. Finally, the Justice Department is moving. What we do not know is whether it is curious enough to follow the trail wherever, and however high, it leads.”
Then as now, a corrupt Justice Department chose not to follow the Clinton trail. Then as now, the Clintons remain above the law.
In their 1998 book “Year of the Rat,” Edward Timperlake and William C. Triplett drilled down on this issue.
“Our thesis is simple: The Clinton administration has made a series of Faustian bargains and policy blunders that have allowed a hostile power [China] to further its aims in Washington. In the main, Bill Clinton and Al Gore did it for money.”
If the closure of New Mexico’s National Solar Observatory at Sunspot involves a security breach by Chinese agents, that old Clinton-DNC / China collusion conspiracy may still be paying dividends for the communist giant buried deep inside the Land of Enchantment.
