The U.S. Military Will Be Conducting ‘A Major Military Exercise’ On The Korean Peninsula During The Solar Eclipse!!

On August 21st, approximately 25,000 U.S. troops will join “tens of thousands” from the South Korean military to conduct a “major military exercise” that is already triggering threats from North Korea.  Considering the fact that any sort of provocation could cause a nuclear war to erupt on the Korean peninsula, is this really a wise thing to do?  The more research that I do on this upcoming solar eclipse, the stranger things become.  When I first started hearing about this eclipse many months ago, I didn’t pay too much attention, but now after looking into it extensively I do believe that it is going to be quite significant.

And I didn’t even know about this major military exercise that will happen during the eclipse until today.  The following comes from MSN…

    The U.S. military is preparing to launch a major military exercise with South Korea in coming days, and faces a dangerous balancing act: How do you reassure allies in the region that you are ready for a war with North Korea without provoking an actual conflict in the process?

    The annual Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercise is scheduled for 10 days beginning Aug. 21, and will include about 25,000 U.S. troops along with tens of thousands of South Koreans. The exercise focuses on defending South Korea against an attack from the north, and each year triggers threats and rebukes from North Korea.

On August 21, a total solar eclipse will mark a trail from the Northwest US to the Southeast Atlantic Seaboard. The eclipse will occur on the last day of the Hebrew month Av, a day known as Yom Kippur Katan, the “small day of repentance.” The morning after the eclipse, Jews will  begin blowing the shofar every morning for a 40-day period of profound repentance leading up to Yom Kippur. This corresponds to the 40 days Moses was on Mount Sinai atoning for the Jewish people.

Seven years after the eclipse on August 21st, another one will cross our nation in 2024. Together, the paths of those two eclipses will mark a giant “X” directly over the middle part of the country.  And amazingly, the combined time of the totality of those two eclipses will be seven minutes.

August 23 – A FEMA exercise known as “EarthEX2017” will simulate “catastrophes such as mega earthquakes, cyber terrorism or high altitude electromagnetic pulse attacks”…

    An exercise sponsored by FEMA and the U.S. Department of Energy set to take place on August 23 called EarthEX2017 will wargame responses to catastrophes such as mega earthquakes, cyber terrorism or high altitude electromagnetic pulse attacks.

    The exercise will simulate a “subcontinent-scale, long duration power outage, with cascading failures of all other infrastructures,” according to the official Earth Ex website.

    “Black sky events” are defined as, “Catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees.”

if my 2008 vision was about 'lurch day', i did not survive it...
Was it me? Time will tell.

Gravity went haywire, boulders were rolling around like so many marbles... [One hit me and that was the end of that vision].
People were frantically trying to collect stores of food and such; i had to wade through them just to try and get to safety [i.e. which obviously failed].
The Sun went black, then a giant sphere passed by the Earth and it seemed we all might get sucked up into it; then it passed by, but as it passed, gravity seemed nulified, it seemed we were drawn up to it.

It's 9 years later but i still remember the sensations of terror. [I think that's the difference between a bad dream and a 'vision'.] This was real and terrible.
"I have seen the end". I've been saying it for years. Whatever you imagine might be a'comin', you're probably underestimating the severity thereof.
Our ancestors weren't thrown into a stone age because they were stupid...
Jim, These photos of the flooding are heartbreaking, but thank you so much for posting them.  It's difficult to imagine that the folks in the first of the three pics had no where to wait for help that wasn't up to their chests in water.

It's good to know to keep it wet and to sharpen the blade every few minutes - I didn't know that.  I've only used the scythe once, just to try it out, and found that it got dull pretty quickly, but I was cutting grass over the drainage field in the back that hadn't been cut all season :)
DC Power Survival Strategies / Re: Low voltage lighting
« Last post by ilinda on August 17, 2017, 05:18:46 PM »
OK, here is a question for anyone who knows more than I about electricity, which is about anyone reading this.

I have a microscope whose only electrical connection is for the quartz halogen lamp inside.  From my recent studies of lighting for low voltage DC from solar, halogen lamps/bulbs can be used with either AC or DC, and it is only the voltage that is important.  For example, a 12 V halogen bulb, according to the source, can be used with 12 V AC or 12 V DC. 

Also, it is my understanding that DC bulbs can often tolerate a bit more variance in voltage than AC incandescent bulbs can.  What I'm leading to is this:  does anyone think it might be possible to plug my microscope light in to DC, rather than AC, as long as the voltage is within an acceptable range?  (I'll research the bulb it uses very carefully).

The main reason is that I'm come to the conclusion that many inverters are junk or are so tempermental that they are close to useless, as we now find our inverter works only if it it constantly "reset", which means power down, power back up while holding down the reset button, etc., etc., blah, blah.  Am thinking of ditching the AC portion of system.

Does anyone have clues about this microscope bulb and the possibility of going DC?  I suppose a mistake on my part may blow a fuse, so better be careful.
When it is all over with, the survivors probably won't even agree on what just happened.

Especially with the Internet down long-term.  I guess we'll each write our own local history and maybe compare notes some day.  Or the ET's will fill in the gaps for us with their technology that is probably far superior to our Internet...
And yes, it's so far/late into this thing that as someone said recently, "it doesn't matter what you believe anymore", or something like that.
If the PX scenario unfolds the way we it don't matter who believes what.
When it is all over with, the survivors probably won't even agree on what just happened.
I bet you're absolutely right. 

In the U.S., each political party will blame the other, religions will blame other religions, homophobes will blame gays, xenophobes will blame immigrants, countries will blame other countries, and especially the U.S. will blame North Korea, China, and Russia, and just for good measure many smaller defenseless countries.

Anyone who does survive, and with a sense of humor intact, can just sit back and laugh at the hilarious blame game that will have ensued!  No lessons learned for some.

Ended up getting Felco products from Pruner Warehouse, both the diamond-coated canoe-shaped coarse grit whetstone and companion stone that does medium and fine. Both for under $40 with free shipping.

Both look good but I'm fairly ignorant of sharpening stones, so even having one (for me) is better than none.  You can switch back and forth if needed.  I keep my stone wet while scything and sharpen every few minutes.  The thing I really need to do (am overdue) is peen the grass scythe.  Probably doesn't take long, but needs to help keep blade from deteriorating after nicks, etc.

The diamond-coating will probably help your stones outlive all the others.
